I believe your weekend is off to a great start. Let me guess – you’re on your sofa, with a mask on your face that needs to permeate the top layer of your skin and unclog your pores for 20 minutes and you figured you’d pass the time with this blog post right? Because what would you rather do on a Saturday morning after working out (besides binge watching your favorite TV Shows)?
So as you all know, I have been on a skincare high in the last few months. Coming from a place of patchy, hyper pigmented, lack luster skin, I have had many more no-make-up days in the last month than I ever have in all my adult life – AND IT JUST GOT BETTER. I received a care package from Derma Rx Signature a week ago that has completely revolutionized my skincare game.
Have you ever wondered why all your favorite celebrities and A-lister’s have enviably flawless skin? I mean…no one will judge you for letting your hair down every now and then, soaking up some sunlight and 4pm dips in the pool but when wedding season is right around the corner, you’re going to need a little more than three sweeps of your favorite bronzer and highlight drops to work your magic – and this is where Derma Rx Signature comes in. They are the new age of beauty treatments that targets the deep layers of the skin to boost hydration, target fine lines, pigmentation, all the while imparting a major glow.
Beyond being treated to a facial (which is scheduled for Monday), I was sent a travel sized kit of Dr Barbara Sturm’s premium range of Skincare and if you know anything about Dr Sturm, then you’re aware that she is known for her advanced scientific approach to skincare and anti-aging. I was kindly gifted an Anti-Aging Body Cream, a Facial Scrub, a Facial Cream, an Eye Cream, a Hyaluronic Ampoule and a Face Mask. Safe to say I have an #IwokeUpLikeThis kinda glow.
I’m only one week into using the products but I have a lot to say already. First things first, the Anti-Aging Body Cream has kept my skin feeling soft, supple and full of vitality all week long. The Facial Scrub essentially targets dry and flaky skin, while boosting regeneration and every time I exfoliate with it, it definitely leaves my skin feeling smoother and well nourished.
One of the active ingredients in this entire skincare range is Purslane, rich in fatty acids, vitamins and minerals AAAND..its the main stay of her Face Cream – just image all that goodness soaking into my skin every time I apply it. And her Eye Cream is no different. Given my history of Panda eyes, the eye cream has greatly reduced the dark shadows and puffiness that I am all to familiar with.
The best of them all thus far has been the Hyaluronic Ampoules. As the name suggests, Hyaluronic Acid is a major component of the Ampoules, which makes it more easily absorbed into the skin, but why is this important? Because HA is known for its ability to hold 6000 times its weight in water, and is responsible for keeping moisture within the skin so it appears plump and wrinkle free. Although it is naturally found in our skin, it’s level declines as we grow older in age, which explains why we need to re-apply and thus replenish the skin.
Like I said earlier, I am barely one week into the products I was sent by Derma Rx but I already foresee many repeat purchases and consultations. Your skin is 90% of your selfie and glowing skin is always in. I’ve got a facial appointment with Derma RX on Monday; best believe i’ll come back here to update you on that.
