Adulting 101: Skincare

Share It:

I feel like taking care of your skin is (although it probably shouldn't be confined to this) a very "adult" thing. Even though I know it's a necessity to use facewash and take off makeup before bed and all that jazz, having a "skincare regimen" feels very grown up to me. I've recently started using a new product, and I want to share it with y'all right here.

I grew up swimming year-round, mostly indoors - and my skin would show it by being red, dry, and uncomfortable. Putting makeup on over the top of dry skin is not cute. Even though my year-round swimming days are behind me (I coach now), my skin has retained it's susceptibility to dryness, specifically in colder temperatures. As we approach cold, dry weather here in VA, I was pumped to find a skincare brand I actually like - DERMA-E, which you can find at most Targets and drugstores. I've been using their hydrating day and night creme for about a week, and my skin hasn't been dry at all.

I've mentioned before that it's hugely important to me that I use the most natural products possible, not only because it's gentler on my skin, but it's also gentler on the environment. The packaging on DERMA-E products emphasizes their commitment to the environment and to global sustainability - two things that are important to me when I'm purchasing a new product. As you can see on the blue box in the photo below, the company's motto is "ethical beauty". That message, plus the quality of the product, means I'm pretty sold on this brand of skincare. Check out their website or your local skincare retailer (seriously, from Target to Whole Foods, you'll find it) and let me know what you think!

This product was provided to me by derma-e for my honest opinion and review - all opinions, as always, are my own.
