You Don’t Have To Live With Scars-Enter For A Chance To Win Our Dermaflage Giveaway!

As we think about Breast Cancer Awareness month, cosmetics brands like Dermaflage encourage everyone to protect their skin from cancer as well. We are all aware that basking under the hot summer sun can take its toll on our skin, but even with this knowledge, most people still seek that bronze glow without using adequate sun protection. Skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the U.S., is a serious threat. And while today’s technology has provided us with some of the most advanced medical treatments, skin cancer often leaves a scar—literally and figuratively—that won’t be easy to conceal.

Courtney, a cancer survivor, reports how scars made her feel: “I had surgery on my nose over 7 years ago when I was diagnosed with Basel Cell Carcinoma.  Mohs surgery removed several layers of my skin and resulted in an indented shiny white scar that was impossible to cover with traditional makeup.  I was devastated because I couldn’t find anything that would cover up my scar.  I was very self-conscious about it and became my own worst critic.  My husband didn’t think I looked any less pretty, but all I could see in the mirror was my scar.”

Many people approach this problem using makeup products like concealers and primers. However, simply painting over scars doesn’t always work. The uneven appearance left by scars produces shadows that draw attention to the blemish. In certain cases, plastic surgery techniques such as injectable fillers, lasers or peels can be helpful to achieve the look of smooth skin. For those who are looking for a more affordable and non-invasive alternative, there is a new concealment solution on the market: Dermaflage.

What began as a Hollywood makeup artists’ wonder tool is now available to a wider consumer base. Using the natural healing properties of silicone, Dermaflage created the first topical dermal filler designed to conceal scars associated with acne, minor surgeries and even skin cancer.

For today’s giveaway, we’d like you to see for yourself the amazing benefits of Dermaflage. Simply tell us: How do you cover scars and blemishes? Share with us your technique and you could be one of 5 winners to receive a free Dermaflage kit ($63 value), which includes a one month’s supply of filler, primer and a texture pad.

    I have a scar on the top of my eyelid from a Milia. A hard whitehead type blemish that when it finally came out, left a terrible & rather large round scar. Nothing I use to cover it works ! Nothing ! I’ve tried all kinds of concealers but because it is shiny nothing adheres to it. I’ve even tried chemical peels to minimize & they didn’t work either ! I would love to win this product & share my results with others that could be helped by it too !

    Full coverage concealer topped with full coverage foundation, which is a hefty amount of makeup to be wearing at times.

    Thank you Dermstore.

    I use a great full coverage concealer and if I need a little extra coverage, I will dip a q-tip into my powder and lightly swirl it over the area.

    I use baobab oil on dark spots and it works really well to smooth out scars and lighten them. I’ve also used Mederma with good results and if there is a big scar to treat I will buy a silicone sheet.

    I have been a long time sufferer of acne scars. I have deep scarring on my cheeks as well as my forehead. Learning about the Dermaflage kit really brings tears to my eyes. I have been wearing heavy makeup for years in attempt to cover up my scars. I use makeup primer, concealer, and a oil-free matte foundation to help cover the scars. The problem is that the makeup will stay on my face for a couple hours but by the end of the day it will all melt off especially during hot days in California. So if the Dermaflage kit does what it claims, it will really help me in feeling more confident in my appearance.

    Primer and mineral concealer are as good as it gets on my face. :( I’ve had acne scars since my teens and I’m still battling acne. Even on the days I’m mercilessly breakout free I still have to wear tons of makeup to cover the scars. It’s be nice to try this product; I’d love to go a day not having to worry about makeup!

    I had 1/3 of my lower lip bitten off by a dog. Fortunately had a wonderful plastic surgeon, but still have quite a scar. I still use Vitamin E oil (even 30 years later). Any concealer or make-up I use on it makes it more noticeable.

    I usually use concealer to cover up any scars, but it doesn’t do a great job of that. Exfoliating makes my skin look smoother, even where the scar is, but I’d be interested in trying a filler to see if it made more of a difference.

    I’ve used all types of dark spot correctors and peels. they lighten a bit, but i’m not sure if that’s the product working or the scars just fading over time itself.
    but to cover scars i wear foundation and concealer, which only works well if people stand 5 feet away from me
