My Skincare Routine: From a Wannabe Dermatologist

In Style + Beauty by Robin AndersonLeave a Comment

It’s been a year and a half since I started seriously whipping my skincare routine into shape. I read every article I could find, listened to this amazing podcast, went off dairy for months, tried more products than I care to remember, and finally visited a real dermatologist. Am I finally doing it right? For today, yes. And as my dermatologist reminded me, it’s all trial and error. So in a way we’re all wanna be dermatologists testing out products and ultimately seeing how our skin reacts.

And you know what? For me, I think it all comes down to routine. Letting the products do what they are made to do and sticking with it long enough to actually see results. Follow along to the key to my skincare routine, consistency and experimentation.

Easily and Inexpensively Frame Odd-sized Art

After purchasing two amazing prints from the talented Amy Blackwell and her shop Audrey and Illya, I’ve been at a loss as to how to frame them. To those of us who don’t use international paper sizes, the A4 prints are roughly an 8.5″ x 11″ but not exactly. Because of that, I had the hardest time finding a frame to use. I know they must make A4 frames but alas I could not find one I liked. While there is always the option for custom frames (expensive) or having a mat cut (slightly less expensive), I needed another alternative.
