Working at DermStore, I’m lucky enough to come into contact with a plethora of amazingly intelligent and gorgeous women every day. Since we are very acquainted with our peers and our readers aren’t, I’d like to dig a little deeper into the world of our panelists and bloggers. One I happen to work alongside with and of course one that I admire, just so happens to be the editor of DermStore, a writer for our blog, and also graces us as a Beautyfix panelist. Elizabeth Franz isn’t just a beauty junkie, she’s passionate about finding the most effective anti-aging solutions and most importantly, she’s always ready to share her experiences with everyone. What’s great about Liz, is that she’ll try anything. If it’s all the rage, she’ll be the first in line to be the guinea pig. What you don’t know is that while she’s witty, she’s actually incredibly goofy and obnoxiously silly-self described of course. ( Another awesome reason why we like her.)
What do you love about the beauty industry?
“There isn’t much not to love about being in beauty—but I’d have to say that the privilege of trying out countless new products is my favorite aspect of it.”
What are your top 3 beauty products?
“My top three favorite products … hmm. Such a tough question! Even though I advise people to stick with what works, my beauty cabinet is a veritable revolving door of cleansers, lotions, serums and creams. Favorites I always go back to are La Roche Posay sunscreen, YonKa Eye Cream and the Dermalogica Multi-Vitamin Power Recovery Masque. The LRP sunscreens shield my pale skin better than any other products out there, the YonKa stuff smells great and de-puffs, and the power recovery masque gives my skin a pick-me-up when it’s looking dull and drab.”
What’s your best skin care advice?
“My best skin care advice is to “listen” to your skin! Hardly anyone has a definitive skin type that falls under one specific category, let alone “normal” skin, whatever that even means. What works for me might not work for you, and vice versa. Pay attention to ingredients labels, learn what works best for you, and when you find something you and your skin absolutely love, stick to it! Oh, and wear sunscreen every day.”
