It’s no mystery that your skin changes with age and exposure to the sun and I have personally felt the affects of all of this. Blessed with pretty decent skin from my Filipino mother and Italian father I’m still not safe from aging and the elements. Being proactive with a skincare regimen, protecting myself from the sun’s harmful rays, and drinking lots of water is how I’m taking on this challenge. Thankfully Germain Dermatology is helping me with that new skincare routine.
Starting with the Skin Tone Enhancement Lotion. This bottle contains botanical ingredients such as Kojic acid, Arbutin, Bearberry and contains green tea and other soothing antioxidants. One of the main ingredients is glyceryl stearate which acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, and gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. The Advanced Vitamin C Brightening Serum is basically vitamin C in a bottle and helps to brighten and even out skin tone. Using some kind of under eye moisturizer goes without saying these days. The Hydrating Eye Serum with super hydration benefits of Hyaluronic Acid to soothe, smooth, and plump the skin in that much needed area.
The little blue bottle of hydration for your skin is the Hydra Boost Serum. The serum is packed with ingredients that reduce the signs of aging while giving you brighter, firmer and rejuvenated skin. And don’t worry, no artificial dyes were used to make this beautiful hue of blue. The Ultra Lite Moisture Dew Cream is exactly how it sounds, it’s light on the face while moisturizing the skin with oil-free ingredients and plant extracts such as aloe vera and squalane emollient.
Last but not least is the Super Sheer Physical Sunscreen SPF 50+ with both UVA and UVB protection. The suns rays are damaging and protecting your skin everyday is so vital. This sunscreen is light and smooth without the cakey layered feeling that you get with your average sunscreen, so it’s perfect to wear under your makeup.
