This Texas weather is never forgiving for a skin care routine. From humidity, to dryness, and the constant battle of avoiding the sun – Dallasites are always looking for the next best thing to compliment the fresh young looks we all want to achieve. From face wash, to moisturizers, and a semi-regular makeup routine, I’m always looking for new ways to keep my skin hydrated during the dreaded months of the sweltering Texas summer. Three weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a lovely event at Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics to learn all about keeping your youthful glow and a healthy skincare regimen with Revision Skincare. This couldn’t have come at a better time as I start planning summer trips and packing my go items for the most minimal routine while on the road.
Dr. Stetler and Dr. Polder shared some great tips in regards to skincare and making sure you got the most out of your daily regimen. I was floored at just how much I’ve been neglecting my own skincare with one small misconception that I’ve head onto for all of these years. There was so much information shared from both doctors, but these three skincare tips really struck a cord.
Sunscreen is your friend!
It’s still important for women of color to lather up with sunscreen on a daily basis. You don’t have to put it all over your body, but at least on the skin that is exposed to sun. This will help with keeping your skin looking young and reduce the potential chances of skin cancer.
Skincare is healthcare.
Never be afraid to go and see a board certified dermatologist! It’s recommended that you go and get your skin checked at least once a year. Tip: plan it with your annual doctors exam to make it easier.
When it comes to SPF, go big or stay at home!
All of these years I’ve been told that when you use a certain SPF over XX amount it become ineffective. That’s not true. The higher, the better with SPF. You don’t have to go crazy with SPF 3,482 (not a real thing, but you get the idea), but find what best suits your every day wear/sun exposure.
After learning these nifty tips, we didn’t waste any time on being introduced to Revision Skincare. Best described as skincare products with a purpose, these high-performing products are crafted with the best ingredients to provide top-notch skincare. These products range from enhancing your skin’s appearance to reducing the signs of aging, which we all know that’s what we are here for. Revision Skincare delivers on the promise of products that will provide real skincare benefits.
Revision Skincare provided a comprehensive overview of their skincare products including the revolutionary tinted moisturizer, Intellishade. The best part is that the encouraged us to try their advanced skincare products with samples of the recommended regimen for the following products: Papaya Enzyme Cleanser, Hydrating Serum, and the Intellishade (in Original and Matte).
In these last three weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to slowly start switching my previous (keyword here) skincare routine to the Revision Skincare regimen. Since making the switch, I cannot sing enough praises to the products that Revision Skincare has developed. Each time I wash and moisturize my face, my skin feels so soft and rejuvenated. Even though I was apprehensive of actually attempting to use the Intellishade, I decided to give it a shot. I wouldn’t recommend the Intellishade Matte for women of color, as it left my face looking a little ashy. The Original blended very well (you don’t need very much) and worked with foundation that I use on a daily basis. Ever since implementing these steps on a daily basis, I’ve slowly watched as my skin improved in condition and I feel much better going outside for longer periods of time.
If you try anything first, I highly recommend the hydrating serum. This light weight, oil free serum has quenched my skin’s thirst. The long last moisturization that I’ve received from this product has opened my eyes to the importance of a product of this type.
All in all, I’m extremely happy with the Revision Skincare products and look forward to scheduling my annual visit to the dermatologist. Summer is coming and I want to look 22 for the next 15 years, so better to start now than later.
