There’s an odd contradiction these days when it comes to people taking the time to really pamper themselves. In this fast-paced world where cars are faster, communication is instant no matter where you are and technology is supposed to make our lives more convenient, then why is it we never seem to have enough time [...]

I knew next to nothing about skin care when I started at this company in Customer Service 4 years ago. Through information-intensive brand training and my own personal research I have learned so much and it’s all thanks to Dermstore’s focus product knowledge and professional –level expertise. My hobbies include gaming, literature, home improvement, culinary arts and going to the gym.
What’s in your shave bag:
My gym bag pretty much as mini derm-spa in it. Everything from body lotion to shampoo and conditioner to shower gel ect..
#1 Must Have Product:
My #1 must have product is the Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46 because it’s lightweight and non-greasy and it protects my skin from harmful UV rays as it soothes irritation.
Best Beauty Tip:
Protect your skin at all times. The sun is not your skin’s friend. It’s easier to prevent UV damage than it is to repair it.
Biggest beauty concern:
Rosacea is a huge concern for me because I have to be very careful what I use on my face otherwise I get really red. My skin is also prone to oil and the occasional breakout so I’m always looking for ways to control excess shine throughout the day.
Senstivie/Oily skin type.
If spa and department store bath and body counters are any indication, salt scrubs came first. Sometime later came estheticians and salespeople expounding on the revitalizing virtues of sugar scrubs. Many of us like both kinds of scrubs to improve the tone and texture of our skin, but the question remains: which is better? The [...]
Since the dawn of civilization, people have striven to improve their appearance through the addition of stylish clothing, jewelry, skincare and makeup. We do it every day, often without thinking. It’s just simply part of our routine and we forget how much time and energy we’re actually putting into our beauty habits and in some [...]
In this day and age sun protection is no joking matter and not all sunscreens are created equally. Lamentably, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding proper prevention of UV damage which is why it is still the leading cause of skin cancer and premature aging today. Studies show that if our skin never saw [...]
Following last month’s 30-Day Ab Challenge I found myself in a bit of a quandary as to why I did not lose as much weight as I expected to. I’ve come to realize that for most people weight loss just isn’t that easy and unless you’re blessed with a genetic predisposition to have a fast [...]
As a self-professed skin care junkie I have little problem with the amount of product I use on a daily basis. Unfortunately it is difficult to give your skin the attention it requires when you are at the gym or traveling. My gym bag isn’t very big and I prefer it that way, so I can’t put [...]
Ever since I was old enough I have hated, loathed and rued shaving my facial hair. Due to my sensitive rosacea skin I tend to get it all; razor bumps, redness, in-grown hairs, dryness and that physical burning sensation whenever I shave. Thus I shave but once or twice a week so I tend to [...]
Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects many people from Bill Clinton to Cameron Diaz, unfortunately the definitive cause of this pervasive proclivity for inflammation is still not yet known. Myriad theories range from hereditary factors to an overactive immune system to mites that live in the skin of the nose and cheeks. Whatever [...]
