Hello, Loves! I wanted to start today off with a couple questions: Do you have a skincare routine that has been personalized for your skin? Is it a combination of things you’ve found that work for you? Or is it based off of recommendations of others? Do you adjust it for the seasons? The reason I’m asking, is because I feel like it’s more valuable than ever to share my personal skincare knowledge with you! And if it’s anything I’ve learned through intimate meetings with brands it’s that there is NO one type of routine for everyone. You truly need to find what works for YOUR skin type.
I recently sat down with Dr. Karan Sra, of Houston Skin Associates, to learn about SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E treatment. This is a brand new system that was developed with science personalized for you and your skin type. The Custom D.O.S.E is a professional service that combines 14 high potency ingredients with professional expertise to create a personalized corrective serum for you, based on your skin needs! I didn’t realize just how important having a customized skincare routine was until we sat down and chatted. I talked about my redness, irritation and sensitive skin, dryness and aging lines around my eyes. I explained how I don’t have an everyday routine, because I’m constantly mixing things up (more about that later!) and that I know I needed to make a change or have some sort of consistency in my routine – I just didn’t know what that would be. Dr. Sra explained just how important is it to start building my routine around a customized serum that will help with the things I mentioned that I’m starting to notice and worry about! From there I would be able to build a routine around that.
My SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E meeting was eye opening. There is something to be said about investing time and resources into learning about your skin type and taking steps to better your complexion. After all, we only get one!!! Since that initial conversation, I have been using my SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E serum over the last month, twice daily, and have noticed a difference in my skin’s tone (less redness), texture (less dryness) and matrix (overall skin firmness). I was always off and on about using serums, but after having one customized for my skin it’s like something clicked in me and I finally realized I need to prioritize using it and investing in it. I haven’t missed a day yet and love how easy it in to work into my routine. If you’ve never used a serum before, it’s not too late to try! For the longest time I was always worried it would make my skin greasy or oily, but it doesn’t. My SkinCeuticals D.O.S.E serum has an emulsion base, which is a milky texture and best for dry skin, like mine! It’s so lightweight, I don’t even notice I have anything on after I apply it! It gets absorbed so easily. I apply my customized D.O.S.E serum after I wash my face, and then layer my other products (i.e. eye cream, face lotion, make-up) on top of it. Each bottle will last about 3 months, which is ideal for your changing skin based off the seasons! 😉 Your customized SkinCeuticals D.O.S.E serum is constantly updated and curated for you each time you stop in. It also gives you an opportunity to consult and ask any skin questions to a leading industry professional!
I absolutely love this new personalized approach to skincare. I am constantly reading and learning about new products, and am always wondering, “will this work for me?” “What do I actually need to be doing here?!” It feels amazing to have a contact, sit down and finally get an honest opinion and advice from an industry professional, and the serum and experience doesn’t cost more than other leading serums in the industry.
