If there’s one thing my later 20’s have taught me so far, it’s the importance of skincare. With a normal-to-dry skin type, I was fortunate enough to not have to worry much about acne in my teenage and early-20 years, so skincare was something I always put on the back burner. Flash forward to now, and those fine lines I see every time I look into the makeup mirror are giving me nightmares (literally…last night I had a dream that I forgot SPF on one part of my body and I had a giant sunburn!) As someone who used to frequently alter their skincare routine and go to bed with my makeup on, it was hard at first to adopt a skincare routine. Thankfully, blogging has introduced me to some amazing skincare brands like Dermatologist Choice. Today I’m teaming up with this amazing, dermatologist-recommended skincare brand to share my daily skincare routine.

As I’ve previously mentioned, my skin type is more of a dry-to-normal type, but since I’m in my later 20’s, anti-aging products are already something that dermatologists recommend. One of the things I really love about Dermatologist’s Choice is that their products are bundled into kits that you can buy for your personal skincare issues and are also offered to purchase individually. I’m all about making life easier, so the Ultimate Anti-Aging Kit was perfect for me. You can shop all of the skincare routine kits available here.
The Ultimate Anti-Aging Kit comes with four products: the PH Balance Cleanser, Glycolic Cleansing Pads, Sunscreen Enhances Moisturizer SPF 35 and the Deep Cleaning Facial Mask. Below are the simple steps in my anti-aging skincare routine.
1 – Cleanse Face. Most all skincare routines start with a cleanser, but for me, it’s hard to find one that doesn’t dry out my face. What I love about the Dermatologist’s ChoicePH Balance Cleanser is that while I can feel it washing away my makeup and any other sweat or dirt I may have acquired throughout the day, it doesn’t strip my face of its natural oils, leaving me fresh-faced without that need-moisturizer-right-now dryness kind of feeling.
2 – Double Up n Cleansing. After you’ve washed and dried your face, you’ll need to double up on the cleansing with the Dermatologist’s Choice Glycolic Cleansing Pads. These pads are are probably my favorite product in the kit. These little pads incorporate both glycolic and salicylic acid to give your skin the ultimate glow. You can actually feel the product working as it tingles and exfoliates your skin, making it feel fresh and cleaner than ever! Not only does the product help prevent acne breakouts (because this girl does get them at least once a month – you know what I’m talking about!), but it also inc;ldes a green tea extract in the formula that has powerful skin firming properties.
3 – Moisturize and Protect. The last daily step in the routine is an amazing moisturizer that doubles as a powerful sunscreen. The Sunscreen Enhanced Moisturizer SPF 35 is a wonderfully moisturizing skin cream that’s made in conjunction with the cleansing products to accelerate the skin’s rejuvenation process.
4 – Exfoliate. Last up in the routine is a mask that you should use 1-2 times a week, depending on your skin type. The Deep Cleaning Facial Mask by Dermatologist’s Choice is a rich, scientifically-proven formula that removes excess dirt and oil to help reduce breakouts and the visibility of pores. With Glycolic (AHA), Lactic (AHA), and Salicylic (BHA) acids in its formula, i’s a triple-threat to unwanted build-up in your pores. I absolutely love how soft and smooth my skin feels after using this mask.
