what works

Last year I spent a lot of time at the beach and I didn’t get burnt once. We’re barely into this summer and I’ve already (stupidly) suffered through a few minor sunburns. It’s time to go back to what works.

  1. Thanks for sharing your skincare must-haves. I’m obsessed with skincare, so I’m always interested in what works for some people. Question: is the DermaAstin only available in Hawaii? Have you noticed a difference in your skin?

  2. Hi Josephine. You can order it online at the link in the post and they ship to the US and Canada. I was skeptical about the antioxidant astaxanthin providing sun protection from the inside out. I took DermaAStin consistently last summer, however, in conjunction with the fish oils that also have the same antioxidant. I spent a lot more time in the sun than usual and never burned once. This summer I’ve only been taking the fish oils and I have burned. Not sure if it’s just a coincidence, but I would like to go back to DermaAstin. Only thing is that it is a little pricey. Hope that helps!

  3. Thanks for all the information!
