How to keep your skin clear with DERMA E!

If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know how important skincare is to me! I have struggled with acne for most of my life and am always looking for new skincare products to incorporate into my routine! I have used DERMA E products for a while now and when I found out they were coming out with acne products, I was sold!

It’s so hard to find an affordable, clean skincare brand. You either have to shell out a bunch of money to find out if the products even work for your skin, or settle for the cheap stuff and get what you pay for. DERMA E is not only affordable but effective. It’s also now backed by three amazing dermatologists so you know you’re getting quality skincare products!

Not only can you find their products in stores such as Target and Ulta, but DERMA E is cruelty-free and 100% vegan! I feel rest-assured using their products knowing that they’re clean and not tested on animals! 

When they recently came out with an acne system, I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s selling out everywhere, too!

One of the first products I tried was DERMA E’s acne deep pore cleansing wash. As someone who struggles with breakouts here and there, having a cleanser with salicylic acid in it is a must! In addition, the acne deep pore cleansing wash has tea tree oil and chamomile to soothe redness yet leaving your skin feeling fresh and moisturized! A lot of cleansers with salicylic acid can dry out your face, but DERMA E’s leaves my skin feeling debris-free and fresh! I like to use this as the first step in my skincare routine after taking off my makeup at the end of the day or as soon as I wake up.

Next, DERMA E’s acne blemish control treatment serum really helps combat the cystic acne I often deal with. It’s also great for blackheads and other breakouts! The serum does not leave my skin feeling oily and it absorbs right away. The serum also contains salicylic acid and tea tree oil with added aloe vera for an extra soothing feel!

After using the serum, I use DERMA E’s tea tree and Vitamin E oil as needed. Tea tree oil in conjunction with Vitamin E helps to spot treat problem areas such as acne scarring for soothing relief and faster healing. This is also a great product to use on mosquito bites! What I love about this oil is, like the rest of their acne line, is that it’s not drying on your skin and really leaves my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed!

Lastly, I use DERMA E’s acne rebalancing cream to keep my skin moisturized while helping to clear my breakouts at the same time. Using a moisturizer with salicylic acid is great for helping to prevent breakouts before they happen. Unlike other moisturizers I’ve tried, DERMA E’s acne rebalancing cream keeps my skin moisturized without disrupting my makeup routine!

Do you struggle with breakouts from time to time? I’d love to know in the comments below!

10+ Target Fashion Must Haves for Summer, Under $40!

Who doesn’t love Target?! With all of the hauls I’ve been doing recently, I’ve recently gotten a lot of requests to do a fashion haul at Target and I, of course, had to oblige.

Here are the items I purchased at Target along with some other recommendations!

Yellow Crewneck Sweatshirt

Summer nights can be chilly, and having a lightweight sweatshirt in your closet is perfect for cool summer nights! This Universal Threads crewneck is the perfect spring to summer wardrobe staple and comes in a bunch of different colors and patterns! I picked up this yellow one in a size large for a more oversized fit, but could have worn a medium!

Patchwork Print Blue Maxi

If it’s cute and lightweight, I’m buying it! This patchwork print blue maxi is perfect for any summer events that you’re going to. The square neck with tiered detailing and tie straps make this maxi far from ordinary! I’m wearing a size medium, my usual size, and fits comfortably even with the bump!

Coral, High-Waisted Paper Bag Shorts

Shop HERE

These are the perfect shorts for summer! The coral color is a fun summer color and the high waist with ruffle detailing is super cute. I got these in a size large because of the bump, but could have done a medium!

Denim Wash Romper

This denim wash romper is SO cute! This might be my favorite piece from my Target haul. Buyer beware, it runs large! I’m wearing a size small and it fits like a medium. This romper would be perfect for any events you have coming up this summer!

You all know I’m a sucker for animal print! This top is perfect for any kind of occasion, whether it’s in the office with a blazer or cardigan, a night out with the girls, or just day-to-day!

This bikini isn’t from this particular Target haul, but I wore this on my recent trip to Austin, TX and got SO many compliments on it! It’s super comfortable and has a very flattering fit. I’m wearing a size large due to the bump but usually, I am a size medium!

Blue Striped Textured Bikini

This bikini not only looks cute, but feels amazing! The stripes have a towel-like texture to them and are so soft. I like how the stripes are vertical so it has a very slimming effect. I am also wearing a size large in this bikini but am usually a size medium!
