How do you want to age? Smart! Now that is a slogan that is right up my street.
Quite frankly, I don’t really like the term anti-aging.
I do enjoy aging. Not the fact that I get wrinkly, saggy and that it takes me three days to recover from one night out. But the fact that I get to spend another day amongst my loved ones, and the fact that I grow wiser (Is this too bold a claim?) and more forgiving against myself and others. Even though my husband may disagree on the latter.
Like someone once said: The only way to prevent aging is to die young.
So yes, I do want to age. But I want to age smart. And by smart I don’t mean not showing any signs of aging. By smart I mean looking the best I possibly can, adapted at my skins needs. And those needs have changed quite a bit over the last years.
When at first I looked at the Doctor Duve Boosting Face Cream (*PR-Sample), I had in mind to hand it over to my mother. But one cold winter later I was happily slathering it on my own face.
When I grew up, I had an amazing family doctor. In fact, I still have her, now that I moved back to my hometown. I grew up with a lot of faith in her decisions, recommendations and in her as a person. Problem is: I extended that to all the other doctors I would consult. Be it my dermatologist for cystic acne aged 12, my gynecologist once I turned 14 or, later in life, my tutors and teachers when studying medicine myself.
But I assure you, I learned. Doctors are only humans. And while that is not a problem per se, not all of them are humans I personally want to spend my time with. In fact, I have very few doctor friends. But the ones I have are amazing.
Now whenever I see a doctors brand in skincare, I am on the fence: Is this the brand of one doctor human being that knows his stuff and brings us scientific expertise? Or is this the brand of a human being that would label utter crap with “doctor” for the sake of money? Believe me, I have seen both.
Today I am introducing Doctor Duve Medical Skincare, a brand founded by Dr. med Stefan Duve in 2009. Doctor Duve Boosting Eye Cream * – did it convince?
