Skincare and makeup empties – Spring 2021 | Doctor Anne

This blogpost uses affiliate links and contains PR (gifted items). I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The last time I got around to showing you the skincare bits I finished was back in October in my End of Summer Empties. The plan was actually to do it quarterly, like a seasonal thing, and here we are, only six months later. Guess we missed a whole season, but I am just going to use the pandemic as an excuse for that.     That also…

Juno & Co Clean 10 Cleansing Balm Review | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. With the increasing interest in ingredient lists, a new debate has entered the skincare community: What is better – more or less ingredients? As always the answer is: „It depends!“ It depends on the formula, it depends on the ingredients, it depends on what you want your product to do, it depends on a lot of things basically.     It also depends on what you think…

Acne patches – Different types and how they work | Ask Doctor Anne

This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. In my recent post about Hyaluronic Acid I talked about the benefits of moist wound healing and the role that acne patches might play in improved wound healing and acne scar prevention. Little did I know that when you look for the terms “hydrocolloid patches” and “acne” on YouTube, you will find numerous compilations of TikTok videos that suggest BandAid as acne treatment. Just as a reminder: I am old, I don´t…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER Just like many of you I haven’t been wearing any foundation for approximately 12 months now – no point in putting it on if you cover half of your face with a face mask anyway. But even before that I wasn’t one to wear a primer in like… ever. So you can imagine that I am probably the worst person to review the Juno & Co Miracle…

Glycation – What is it and how does it affect the skin? | Ask Doctor Anne

Hanging jowls, bulldog cheeks – there are many names for a phenomenon most of us experience with age. Sagging skin – when everything that was ones perky decides it is time to follow gravity and move downwards.     As always in skincare the reasons for that happening are complex, but today I want to solely focus on one of them – the infamous “Sugar Sag” caused by a process called Glycation. But why “Sugar Sag”? What exactly is Glycation? And is there something we can do against it, both…

Advertisment info: This blog post uses affiliate links and contains PR (gifted items) If there is one good thing about all the Valentines Day stuff that was rubbed in my face over the last few weeks, it is that the constant presence of roses reminded me that I still owe you a review of the Good Molecules Rosewater Daily Cleansing Gel.     I´m a Valentine’s Day Grinch – as much as I appreciate chocolate anytime throughout the year, I refuse to buy into the consumerism regarding February 14th. The…

Does your diet affect your acne? | Ask Doctor Anne

Does your diet affect your acne? Or does it not matter what you eat, because acne is hormonal? Is chocolate leading to breakouts? The answer is yes, your food choices influence your skin – but probably less than you think.     There is no denying that if you suffer from acne, certain changes in the way you eat will help with the severity of breakouts, but at the same time it should be crystal clear that if you suffer from acne, what you need to do is see a…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I don´t think I have ever had so many requests to do a review than I had for The Inkey List Retinol Eye Cream. Should not have surprised me, after all both The Inkey List reviews and Retinol products are among the most searched after topics that lead people to my blog – why not combine both?     So far The Inkey List released three eye creams: Their Caffeine Eye Serum,…
