A self-care journey: 1 skincare brand that I love

Living with CVID has taught me many lessons, and one thing I’ve learned is that I need to treat my body well and prioritize self-care. I started to devote myself to a journey toward wellness. Even if I physically am not feeling well, I can control how I take care of myself.


Part of this journey finding ways to maintain healthy skin. I feel so much more confident about myself when I have taken care of my skin. I love a lot of different products, but I am going to talk about one brand in particular that has made my skin feel really amazing!

My boyfriend used to receive a monthly subscription box from GQ, and in one of the boxes, there was a serum from a company called Acure. It is called the “Radically Rejuvenating Dual Phase Bakuchiol Serum.”

When you shake the serum, it turns bright green! I put it on my face after my moisturizer either in the morning, at night, or both. It makes my skin feel so good, and I have a nice glow.

So, what the heck is “Bakuchiol?” It is a plant-based retinol alternative. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that helps with anti-aging. So, this is a great option for anti-aging properties.

This serum also has turmeric, holy basil, and eggplant as well.

Overall, I really love it! I only apply a small amount, so I feel like the bottle lasts for a good amount of time.

So, I love the Acure serum. Here are a couple of other great products from them.

I am always looking to try new face wash. While I do love Pond’s Cold Cream for a good classic makeup removal, I recommend trying the Brightening Cleansing Gel from Acure. It is formulated for all skin types and has pomegranate, acai, and blackberry. This has been great to incorporate into my skincare routine.

And lastly, I love a good body moisturizer. I have pretty dry skin and it can sometimes be sensitive since I have suffered from eczema. I really like that this lotion makes me feel hydrated and it has cocoa butter and colloidal oatmeal. It doesn’t have a smell, though! And you need to make sure you rub it in well.

Good skincare helps me feel in control of my wellness.

It may sound dumb, but I want to focus on taking care of different aspects of my wellness so I feel like I at least have some elements of health that are in my control. Skincare is something that I have loved devoting more time to. Having a chronic illness can consist of many difficult and unexpected days, so I like to treat myself with good products! It is always exciting to try something new. Using products I love can really help me de-stress after a long day of work or prepare myself for the week on a Sunday.

I definitely want to try out more skincare products, so let me know if there are any products that you love!

Thank you everyone for your support 🙂
