How-To: Create a Skincare Routine

Skincare is such an important part of looking your best.  I remember as a teenager, going to the drugstore with my mom and purchasing an entire line of skincare products.  When I got a little older, she took me to the cosmetics counter at the department store. I loved listening to the skincare expert tell me about my skin and its needs.

I was in heaven.  From the first time I saw those jars lined up along the vanity, I was a lotions and potions girl.

I've tried a lot of brands and a lot of formulas over the years.  Most people will tell you it's more the act of taking care of your skin, than the actual product, but I believe it is a combination of both.

A few months ago, I received some Theraderm products from Therapon to review.  As I am into my 40s, my skin is changing, and I want a skincare line that will help me ward off the signs of aging as long as possible.

Theraderm Skincare Line

Within a month, I could see changes.  My monthly break-out sessions went from 1-3 large blemishes, to 1-2 small and hardly noticeable blemishes. . .some months with none at all.  It may be wishful thinking, but the lines between my eyebrows seem less noticeable as well.

The products are easy to use, have a pleasant light scent, and leave my skin feeling fantastic! Each night before bed, I go through the 4-step routine.  It takes about 5 minutes.  Once a week I include the NuPeel Natural Enzyme Peel, after I get out of the shower.

In the morning, I do a quick rinse, sometimes use the OPC Reparative Gel, and a light moisturizer with sunscreen, then on to my 8-minute face.

Here's a little video I put together about how to use the system.

So do you have a skincare routine? What products are your favorite right now?

note - I received a skincare kit to facilitate my review.  As always, all opinions are my very own.


  1. I love the Theraderm products. Just ran out of one of the items in the line and need to reorder asap.

    1. I found I run out of the activator pads first. . .not sure if that's good or bad. . .LOL
