I’m getting married in just under 134 days. There’s only so much I can control when it comes to making my big day perfect. One of my worries is, of course, the weather, but unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do to ensure a sunny day. My second worry is having uncontrollable breakouts or dry skin on my wedding day. For the next few months, putting my skin routine as a top priority is so important! I want to do everything I can to ensure a clean and glowing face. The stress of 2020 played a big role in my skin. Canceling wedding plans a few times, eating too much chocolate, and not drinking enough water had my skin acting out pretty bad.
For the past few weeks, I have been using PROVEN Skincare, and I love it so far. PROVEN Skincare is a new skincare brand that was founded by female scientists and formulated by Stanford dermatologists. What I love about it is that not every bottle of PROVEN Skincare is the same, which makes sense because no skin type is the same! PROVEN Skincare is personalized according to your skin’s needs.PROVEN Skincare takes into account more than 47 factors that determine skin health. Things like lifestyle, your environment, sun exposure, and things you eat all play a role.

It mimics the evaluation that you’d get at a dermatologist’s office. The quiz was so thorough, and I loved that it took note of where I lived, how much time I spend outside, foods I eat regularly, and even how many hours I spend behind a computer screen. Who knew all of those things played a significant role in your skin health? After completing the quiz, I was able to see my results for my perfect formula. It’s so neat that you can see what each ingredient is supposed to do for your skin. I was shocked to see that location played a big part in your skin health. The online quiz took about three minutes to take.
I love that PROVEN Skincare is evidence-based. They say they use a technology that has analyzed 20,238 skincare ingredients and 100,000 products and their proprietary Skin Genome Project,™ was the winner of MIT’s AI Technology of the Year award.
I didn’t realize how dry my skin was. I always have to moisturize, and sometimes the dryness is what causes my breakouts. My formula included the cleanser, day moisturizer with SPF, and Night Cream. I also can’t believe I’m turning 30 in less than a week! I was only 19 when I started this blog. Aging is definitely something I wanted to stay on top of, and PROVEN Skincare has anti-aging benefits in the formula.
Your formula consists of a 3-product system! It provides your skin with everything it needs and nothing that it doesn’t. I love that because so many times, I find myself self-diagnosing my skin issues.
The cleanser is a toner and exfoliator all in one. The cleanser is creamy (perfect for dry skin!), natural, and so gentle on my skin. I love how soft and light the fragrance is. My old cleanser made my face feel so tight after washing, but the PROVEN Skincare cleanser leaves it much softer. That is how I know my skin responds well to the formula. I use the cleanser before bed and in the morning after I go for my walk.
After using the cleanser in the morning, I follow it up with the day moisturizer with SPF. I had no idea that the blue light on phones and computers could pollute your skin. The day moisturizer has anti-pollution ingredients to protect skin from UV rays and blue light.
Before bed, I lightly wash my face with the cleanser and follow it up with the night cream. The night cream is a serum and night moisturizer all in one. The cream deeply moisturizes, repairs, plumps, and firms skin all while you sleep.
PROVEN Skincare products are non-toxic, cruelty-free, and clean made in the USA. It’s good to hear that none of their products contain phthalates, parabens, SLS, triclosan or formaldehyde. I love knowing that my products are safe to use.
The photo above was taken about two weeks before I started using PROVEN Skincare. I rarely show pictures of breakouts like this, but I wanted you to see the progress I’ve been making. I was so frustrated because my skin was constantly breaking out, which was nerve-wracking since it continued to get worse. I knew immediately I had to do something to prevent it from getting out of hand before my wedding. Lately, my skin has been feeling so much smoother, less-dry, and not as tight after washing my face. I also apply the day moisturizer and night cream to my neck because it’s also an area prone to aging and sun exposure. I make sure to drink a lot of water now, too!
I know you all are going to love PROVEN Skincare as much as I do. I’ll keep you all updated with how my skin is doing in the next coming months.
