For the most part, my skincare routine was working for me. I knew which products really helped my skin and which ones didn’t. Aside from the bouts of annoying dry patches thanks to eczema, I didn’t really have many complaints. I also wasn’t one to question what I thought was a good thing.
All of that stopped when I started writing about beauty a few months ago. You see, I’m the managing editor of Who What Wear’s sister site, THE/THIRTY, so my whole realm is about what foods to eat, what workouts to try, what activewear to buy… You get the idea. I let Who What Wear’s beauty editors, Erin Jahns and Courtney Higgs, answer all of my questions about makeup, skincare, and hair. But now that I’ve recently been moonlighting as a beauty writer, I’ve been questioning everything. Prime example? See all I learned about sunscreen here.
So as I’ve been discovering, researching, and learning all there is to know about the beauty world, of course, I’ve been taking a good hard look at my skincare routine. Sure, it was working, but was I doing everything correctly? It was part curiosity and part my type A personality.
