My updated evening skincare routine for summer | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS (PR) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I recently read an article online that talked about the different personality traits those posses that prefer to shower in the evening opposed to those that prefer to shower in the morning. It was something along the lines of „reflective and romantic“ versus „seize the day“ – I admit it was light reading, not a scientific paper, but I figured where I would fit, be-cause right now,…

dear klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner compared to the Unscented version | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The dear klairs Supple Preparation Toner has been around for more than six years now, and it is only now that I have gotten around to reviewing it. The main reason is that I tend to shy away from most things that fall under the category „Korean Beauty“, not because I assume these products are bad, but because I feel like I am too old for the mostly „kawaii“ packaging.    …

Is the SPF in my makeup enough for adequate protection? | Ask Doctor Anne

If my foundation already has an SPF, do I really need a separate sunscreen? Yes. Does that mean the SPF in makeup or moisturizers is worth less than the SPF in a dedicated sunscreen? No! Confused again? I totally get that.     So let me explain why the SPF in makeup products is on the one hand absolutely legitimate, but you on the other hand should not rely on it exclusively for your protection!     I bet you have something like that in your stash as well: a…

My simple summer morning skincare routine Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS AND PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Keep it simple – that is the best way to describe my summer morning skincare routine.     The warmer it gets, the more layers I shed, both in terms of clothes and skincare steps. The best routine for the current weather of course depends on the climate you live in, and here in Germany summers are warm, but not too hot and not particularly dry. So other…

How much sunscreen do you really need for your face and neck? | Ask Doctor Anne

Now that we have talked about the different forms of sunscreen, the best one for sensitive skin and the importance of UVA protection, it is time to talk about the most important things:     How much sunscreen do I need for my face and neck? How often do I need to reapply? And: What about my Vitamin D levels? These were among the questions I got quite frequently, so I decided to dedicate a whole video to that topic. As always you need to adapt what I say to…

Why is UVA protection important and how is it labelled? Ask Doctor Anne

In the previous videos I made on sunscreen (just type sunscreen in the search bar), I often mentioned „broad spectrum“ sunscreen or talked about the UVA and UVB protection What I did not yet adress in depth though is why UVA protection is so important and how you can identify sunscreens that offer adaequate protection – because it sadly isn´t as easy as looking at the SPF.     I had so many questions on that topic that I decided to dedicate a whole video of the Ask Doctor Anne…

Huge skincare haul – What happens if I have time on my hands… | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. After a very busy few months that barely left me time to shower, let alone think about buying new skincare, I suddenly found myself with time on my hands and a ton of new releases right at the tip of my cursor.     A recipe for disaster I can tell you, at least for my bank account, but also a great reason to film a huge skincare (and hair care and…

Can you be allergic to sun? Polymorphous light eruption and other forms of sun allergy | Ask Doctor Anne

Sun poisoning, sun allergy, polymorphous light eruption – these are only a few names for a subgroup of dermatologic conditions making it almost impossible to go out and enjoy the sun. I suffered from a mild form in my teens and early twenties – not fun! Every year when I was first exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, went on holiday, went on a hike, basically exposed skin that had been protected from direct sunlight before, my neck and décolleté, sometimes even my upper arms and…
