Momma Told Me: There is No Fountain of Youth.

We all age. From the moment we take that very first gasp of air, until we punch our clock for the final exit, we are constantly changing. When we are young it is exciting to watch ourselves mature into an individual that is visibly ready for life's milestones; 'kids' can't wait to be 'teens', and 'teens' can't wait to be 'legal adults'. We have no complaints about our ever changing bodies then, it is all exciting; a right of passage. Until, somewhere around 25 for me, it hits us- at some point we will reach the peak of these changes. One day we will wake up and all of society's perceived desirable features will begin to fade. We are taught to fear this type of aging, that with these signs of time and experience, our beauty fades. It is something I wrestle with daily, not overly concerned with aging signs at this point in my life, yet cognitive enough to acknowledge preventative maintenance is key. I am certain I will never look in the mirror and hate the person looking back; there is an extent of physiological changes I can accept as badges of experiences conquered. However, there are some signs I know I have helped to cause, that I would rather erase.
It's hard for me to complain about the climate, living in Southern California. I'm not going to lie, we have it nice. I live about a walk to the beach, and a few hours from desert wind surfing, or mountain snow carving. For the most part, the year-round temperatures are quite desirable. However, just as those that suffer through cold and snowy Winters, us year round sun thieves are met with their own skincare concerns. In my early 20s I would visit the local tanning salon almost daily; today I proudly insist on being the whitest (I call it the fairest, like Snow White, it just sounds better). That is to say, when I am outdoors during the Summer I am often sheltered from the direct sun, and or using strong SPF protection. Believe it or not, dry and hot weather does bring it's own mixture of skin threats, outside of sunburn. One of the largest changes in our skin, we often overlook until it's quite literally staring us in the face, is uneven texture and breakouts due to clogged pores from sweating.
To fight these uncontrollable breakouts, I often try to soothe my skin with a strict skincare regimen, such as Dermagist's Ultimate Clarifying system. The brand relies on the fame of it's formulated Metahylate Complex (which admittedly sounds like something one should not put on their skin). This formulation is actually a compound of many well regarded, industry known, ingredients- a sort of super potion of the stuff that works, if you will. It operates as a dermal filler (anti-aging talk for fine line eraser and skin plumper), by filling in lines and wrinkles while lifting the skin. The skin is then encouraged to regenerate, for new cell growth that results in visual effects long term. It's not a new approach to skincare, but it's a unique formulation that promises dramatic results to multiple causes of aging signs. These and similar principles have helped make Dermagist the frill free, pharmaceutical grade, approach to healthy skin,
A few months back I received the Hydrating Spa System, consisting of Hydropeutic Body Lotion, Hydro-Renewal Hand Cream, and Foot and Heel Revitalizing Cream. Together these three products are a 360 attack on dry, tired, skin prone to wrinkles and age spots. I'll admit, I've never used a complete lotion care routine before; I typically lotion my legs daily, and treat my feet once a week with a home pedicure. My hands are perhaps the most neglected, which is ironic considering how much I use them daily (physically and in photos). I won't lie, I'm a wee bit too young to judge age and sun spot removal, but I was immediately attracted to the thought of using the Hydro-Renewal Hand Cream to smooth some of the fine lines and tough skin around my wrists. After my first use I was hooked. This white, cream based product had a slightly oily sheen that absorbed into the skin like silk, and covered a large area with minimal product. The fragrance was slightly citrus, and at the same time herbal, but very light.
Hydro-Renewal Hand Cream
I used the complete Hydrating Spa System daily for 30 consecutive days. After the first few days I fell into a rhythm of application. I would apply the Hydropeutic Body Lotion all over immediately after drying from my shower. I'd focus especially in rough patches of skin, such as my elbows and heels, and weight loss marks around my thighs and hips. In the afternoon, by the time my hands were beginning to feel 'thirsty' again, I'd treat my hands for a mini spa escape. And, in the evening, just before tucking into bed, I'd reach for the Foot and Heel Revitalizing Cream to treat my feet. (Ladies, if you're real good you can even convince your other half to help you out with this part for a true spa experience!) Each of the three products is similar in texture and scent, though they vary slightly with special key ingredients formulated for each intent and purpose. The Foot and Heel Cream is easily my favorite for the addition of Eucalyptus and Peppermint, which creates a really great relaxing fragrance note in the evening.
Hydropeutic Body Lotion
The Dermagist Hydrating Spa System is really a cohesive collection of products designed to nourish your skin from head to toe. It's great for those who have some unwanted signs of skin aging they'd like to erase, or for those a little younger looking to maintain the health of their skin and prevent unwanted wrinkles and spots. All 3 of the products are highly infused with antioxidants, which tend to immediately 'perk' up skin for a firmer and more natural appearance. I've been quite satisfied with my daily regimen, and am grateful for the new experience. I never thought to treat my skin so thoroughly, but will be carrying on the schedule through the Summer! How do you keep your skin healthy during hot Summer months?

  5. This is the first time I've heard of Dermagist. I checked out the website and would love to try their Detoxifying Cleanser. I have a hard time finding facial cleansers that I like and tend to stick with one for a long time once I find that it works for me.
