Thanks to Dermstore for sponsoring this post. They are one of our favorite places for everything skin-related. All opinions are our own!
I’ve ran the gamut with my skin over the years. Like most teens, I worshipped the sun gods without even a fleeting thought for SPF or my skin’s future. When hormonal acne ensued, I didn’t know a thing about skincare and just prayed it would go away. Now years after surviving teen hood, young adulthood, and now motherhood, I feel like I’ve finally wised up about skincare, most importantly that it matters.
Taking care of your skin matters.
Start early, start now. Wherever you’re at on the skincare journey, here are three things I wish I’d known earlier, but I’m sure glad I know now.
3 Important Things To Know about Your Skin Now
1. Skin Cancer Prevention Matters
Did you know that by the age of 70, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer? It’s a fact I wish I’d been more cognizant of much earlier in my life. Now I use facial SPF every single day, but I could be doing better.
This Best of Dermstore Skin Cancer Foundation kit has everything you need to arm yourself daily. It’s packed with 8 best-selling essentials to protect you against the sun’s harmful rays and its contents is over $127 value. The full-size EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 daily facial sunscreen retails at $37 alone, so this kit is an absolute bargain!
It’s a good one to take on vacations. Grab one here.
2. Routines Make a Difference
In my 20s I had no skin care routine, unless you count applying makeup, staying up late to study or hang out with friends, and then hitting my pillow, promising I’d wash my face in the morning. Gross.
A decade later, my skin is showing signs of aging that I wish I’d had a crystal ball to see earlier. I should have maintained better routines when I was younger. Your skin care routine matters. It REALLY matters. And the younger you start, the better.
But it’s never too late (or too early) to start. Dermstore has some of the best skin care regimens on the market today. Their Brightening Regimen is a dermatologist-created routine that lightens dark spots and dull skin. It’s a literal age-eraser!
Check out these other best-selling Dermstore regimens:
- Best of Dermstore Anti-Aging Regimen: Combats aging concerns like dull skin, exfoliation, and hydration.
- Best of Dermstore Hydrating Regimen: For dry skin to get a smoother, healthier complexion.
- Best of Dermstore The Essential Set: This one has it all. If you’re like me and aren’t quite sure what type of regimen you should be on, start here. It’s the very best of the best, curated by the medical experts at Dermstore. (Retail value $271)
If you want to see a big difference in your skin, start a routine and stay with it.
3. Daily Vitamins for Healthier Skin
Just like SPF and a good skin care routine, you may not have paid much attention to your vitamin intake when you were younger. Maybe you don’t now.
If not, it’s time to start.
Supplemental nutrients can be a very important part of not only your diet, but your beauty routine as well. Dermstore has a great lineup of beauty supplements that can bolster your skin, hair, and nail radiance. The HUM line is my favorite, probably because a lot of their vitamins are chewable and yummy like their Glow Sweet Glow supplement.
And one of the most common deficiencies is Vitamin D so make sure you’re stocked up for winter on this powerful immunity-boosting duo.
Fun Goodies Once a Month
For me, shopping Dermstore is exactly like taking my kids to any toy aisle…everything looks so fun and I want it all! From my favorite Jane Iredale lip gloss to new natural deodorant to try, my favorite thing is to grab a few new goodies to try.
Actually, the best way to try a little taste of Dermstore is through their BeautyFIX.
Once a month you can get a box full of new beauty products to try and it’s such a blast. You can try BeautyFIX one time only or go for the 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription and save some serious coin. Each box contains at least five full and travel-size items that have been handpicked by the beauty experts at Dermstore. Each box is worth at least $100 but you can get it for as low as $21.95.
Go try BeautyFIX now and get a sweet surprise on your doorstep once a month.
Maybe you haven’t yet found a skin care routine that you love. Find one now. And maybe you’ve been doing the same routine for years. Try switching it up to revitalize your skin with something new.
It’s never too early or too late to start.
