Beauty ~ Dermadoctor Kakadu C Serum for Anti-aging, Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Dermadoctor Kakadu C Serum

I have been using the Kakadu C since the summer so almost 5 months now.  I feel i'm ready to give this product my honest opinion and how it has affected my skin.  I take very good care of my skin especially now that i'm in my 50's.  I don't always talk about skin care here on my Blog but that's about to change.  I will begin writing about all the products that I've been using (one by one) so you will start seeing a bevy of skin care products and devices that I have been using over the last few years.

When I first started using vitamin C on my face, I was making it myself.... yep, I found a YT video that explained all the ingredients so I went to my local health food store and began making it myself. The problem with that was that you had to store it in the fridge because you can't find certain items to give it a longer shelf life, which might be good because you're only putting natural products on your skin. Well, I got tired of going to the fridge every time I needed to use it so I started exploring other products on the market.  

I asked my Dermatologist which products that I should be using to help improve my skin, he immediately told me to use any products that contained hyaluronic acid, vitamin c and peptides.  I had already been using a very good Hyaluronic Acid that I reviewed several years ago, so I began to research products that contained vitamin c's and peptides. There's quite a few products on the market so I decided to search Sephora and see what I could find.  This one was at the top of the list as far as reviews were concerned, so I decided to read all of them and make my decision on whether or not to purchase it based on those reviews.

This product is not cheap, it cost $95 for 1.0 fluid ounces so researching it thoroughly before buying is imperative!  What enticed me to purchase it was something I read from the Dermadoctor website that I had not heard of before and that was Ferulic Acid, which is a derivative and from the same family of hyaluronic acids. This product also contained vitamin e which i've always known was very good for the skin.  The Dermadoctor website gives a very detailed description and explanation of every item in this product and what they contain so I won't list them here... but I wanted to share how my skin has improved since I started using this product.

Everyone says that brown skin is rich with melanin (which it is) and that melanin blocks the sun rays and prevents the skin from becoming sun damaged ultimately preventing the long term effects such as fine lines and wrinkles.  What no one tells you is that melanin doesn't prevent the elasticity of the skin from breaking down thus causing sagging in areas such as the chin (jowls) or the cheeks (marionette lines) from happening.  I was around 50 when I started noticing this happening to my skin and that's when I discovered that hyaluronic acid helped to slow down this process. 

Since my discovery of hyaluronic acid, I begin reading about how vitamin c helped the skin from breaking down and losing elasticity as well so I started making my own. Fast forward to age 56 when I started buying them, I can say that my skin has stayed the same, I saw no major sagging in my chin or cheeks over the last few years, so I can definitely say that vitamin c along with hyaluronic acid does really work well together to stop the skin from breaking down.  I still do not need to get botox or fillers but someday I probably will as I approach my 60's, but I will hold out as long as possible because I feel botox and fillers is the easy way out rather than properly caring for your skin.

I will begin reviewing all the skin care oils and serums that I've been using over the years but will refer to this post for the deets on why I started using them.... so stay tuned!
