For the past few months, I have really been struggling with acne and preventing my skin from breaking out. No matter what I try (from always washing my makeup off at night to prescription-grade benz0yl-peroxide) I always seem to have at least one pimple on my face.
And that is just not okay…
For the past month and a half, I have switched my entire skincare routine to the derma e line. The first thing that made me fall in love with the brand was the fact that I could take a quiz and share my skin type, issues, and what I was looking to improve. After you complete the quiz // survey, the website suggests six products that they believe match your needs and would benefit you.
1. Scar Gel // used morning and night
The scar gel is by far my most favorite out of the four products that I am using. The second week of using this, I was graced with the presence of a nice
little giant mountain on my face (and it was just my luck that I left all my makeup at home…4 hours away…but that’s beside the point).
I began putting this gel on the pimple even before it popped because I tend to get really bad scarring, so I wanted to prevent that. After the mountain popped, I was extremely excited that just three days later everything was smoothed out and the scar was already almost faded!
2. Brightening Serum // used in the morning
I chose to try this brigthening serum from my six options because I thought I needed help with brightening my skin. Unfortunately, I did not see as drastic results as the scar gel, but that is only because I do not have the amount of sun damage that would have benefited with the serum. If you have older skin or have a decent amount of sun spots // damage, you should definitely give this one a try!
3. Very Clear Moisturizer // used in the morning
Oh my gosh, I love this moisturizer. Prior to using this, I was hooked on the Cetaphil daily moisturizer (I don’t know why… it was way too oily for my skin). Since I have acne prone, oily skin, this moisturizer is perfect for me. And you only need a pea-sized amount!
4. Age-Defying Antioxidant Night Creme
My skin is so weird, guys. If I wear a heavy moisturizer during the day, my skin gets too oily. But if I wear a light moisturizer at night, my skin gets insanely dry. So needless to say, that since I need to wear a light moisturizer in the morning, this heavier night creme works insanely well for me.
Although it is very moisturizing, it dries completely and does not leave my skin oily or greasy when I hit the hay! It is for all skin types, so even if you have oily skin, this would definitely work for you.
If you are looking to switch up your skincare routine, I would highly recommend you go to derma e and fill out the survey to receive the best products for you! They are also 100% Gluten Free, so if you have any allergies or sensitivities, this line is for you. When you make the purchase, don’t forget to use the code ICANTWHEAT to take 25% off your order (expires 11/20/15).
