Hi all,
I have a question regarding Epidermx. I just purchased a container along with 1 bottle of the Silkia Camellia oil. I am excited about trying them as i have some acne scars and very large pores around the cheek area.
Anyway, my question is can I apply it underneath the eyes to help with puffiness, minor wrinkles, and firmness?

My next question is, would Epidermx be more effective if we applied say for instance, Sea Breeze or some sort of deep cleanser to open up the pores for the Epidermx in order to make it work better? Will this help?

And my last question is, I wear sunless tanning cream, and I am wondering if the pigment will slow or hinder the progress of the Epidermx? I was told by a seller of the product that the tanning cream should not effect anything, and that I should apply it on the days I don't use Epidermx. So I am asking you also, who may be doing the same thing, have you noticed less effect of the Epidermx when wearing the tanning cream?

Well, that's all. Thank you so much again. You all have been very helpful Very Happy

If you use Epidermx after the tanning cream, the cream will come off, (makes sense, exfoliant). If you want a nice tan use the Epidermx one night and the tanning cream the next day, but if you want the tan to last longer don't use the Epidermx, until your ready to re-tan.

Good Luck! Smile

exfoliating is a good way to keep self tanners from streaking. But after deep exfoliations you want to keep your skin relatively clean for 24 hours if possible.

Thank you for the replies ladies Very Happy

So does anyone know about using it underneath the eyes for puffiness, wrinkles and firmness? Also would a cleanser like sea breeze or something else make Epidermx more effective?

Thank you again Wink

There is absolutely NO reason to use something like sea breeze... ever (in my opinion) that sort of alcohol does nothing to improve your skin and strips it of it's ph balance. WHATEVER you do NEVER use it AFTER you use the Epidermx. When you use the Epidermx, it removes a thin layer of skin, which can make your skin a bit more suceptable to anything that your not normally sensitive too..even vitamin c or other alphy hydroxys...

The epidermx doesn't need any kind of "prep" other than washing your face, and patting it a bit...it's more important what you use AFTER...you should like the camellia oil...it doesn't take much...a little goes a long way...

Enjoy!

Danielle is correct, Epidermx needs nothing and I would not advise using any *acid* type product after a treatment, one it might sting and two and most importantly you don't need it. Smile

Hi
I've been using Epidermx on my undereyes although it's not recommended by the sellers.

It did seem to be smoothing and brightening the skin and eradicating some small needle scars I have there, but I only did it for a couple of weeks and gave up because I was trying out the strivectin instead. It wasn't really long enough to know if there was any serious improvement but it certainly did no harm - but stroke it really lightly over this area if you do use it there.

I'm going back to using it on my undereyes this week (didn't like the Strivectin - too heavy for me) so I'll let you know if anything happens.

Thank you everyone else for your imput as well. I won't use anything but a normal cleansing face soap, along with the Epidermx and camellia oil.

Thank you!
