Summertime Travels + Skin Care

Living life on the go and traveling full time is existing to say the least, but the lack of consistency can be hard, especially on my already trouble-prone skin. I have went from dramatically cold to very hot in humid (now that we are exploring the entire Florida coastline) and what I’ve come to learn is that what works in a dry and cold climate will not work in a place like Florida. With the new terrain comes a whole set of new skin problems (like oily T-zone, clogged pores from sunscreen and more).

When I came across Apothederm, a Seattle-based dermatology biotech company – I knew I needed to try it. Not only are they from my oh-so familiar city of Seattle but they take a scientific approach to skin. With how frustrated I have been with little bumps on my skin that seem to never go away, science seemed like a logical solution and I was more than willing to give it a try.

 I was sick of throwing a bunch of chemicals on my skin (that I know are not good for me) and simply didn’t work. They have a formula composed of natural ingredients and is paraben-free. I also didn’t want to fall in love with a skincare line that was over-the-moon expensive but I know I needed to go higher-quality, because drugstore skin care was getting me no where.

I told the team about my skin issues and they recommended their acne clarifying collection. I tried the Brightening Cleanser ($30), the Clarifying Toner ($30) and the Acne Clarifying Treatment ($35).

I am obsessed with this cleanser. It smells so good and is effective, yet super gentle (and doesn’t have that horrible chemical smell). It is a gel-like cleanser, so I make sure to wash it off my face twice, to ensure all of it is off.

Next is the Clarifying Toner. I love how mellow it is and it doesn’t sting like many that I have tried.

Finally, after all of the toner has worked it’s way into my skin and my face is dry, before bed, I apply the Acne Clarifying Treatment to fight stubborn bumps overnight.

I will make sure to update this post in about a month to share how it continues to work.

Have amy of you tried Apothederm before? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

As always, thank you for reading.
