A Simple Switch In Perspective

I like to think I’ve been pretty honest with you all about my daily life. From the events and adventures we bring you along with on Instagram Stories, to the blog posts we passionately write to help bring you brands and experiences we love, running #DoTheDaniel with Catherine has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. But it can of course take its toll on my sleeping habits, not to mention my ability to look and feel my best. Though I have opened up about my BOTOX journey, I have kept one of my best kept secrets hidden – but it’s time to tell you about it and how I am working to feel better every single day. 

For those of you who do follow along on social media with us, you’ll have seen that we recently attended a media event to celebrate the launch of a new line of Canadian beauty products – and yes, I have been using them everyday. Which is what makes me smile when people tell me how great my skin is looking. It’s important to remember that self-care is a necessity the busier the world gets. And the simple addition of Pö Derma to my life has made the most important of differences! 

I must admit that I do owe my appreciation of a beauty regime to my husband. One of the most adamant and most dedicated to self-care, he has helped me understand that taking the time to really care for myself with the right products can make the biggest difference. For that and so much more, I love and adore him. I mean, he is pretty frickin’ fantastic if I do say so myself. 

So what is so different about Pö Derma? Not only is it Canadian (French Canadian – so clearly I have an affinity as I was born French Canadian) but it is designed with better beauty choices in mind. Using the power of natural ingredients, the products themselves are meant to nourish your natural beauty – not mask it. 

“A selection of premium skincare products containing high performance, nourishing ingredients.

Pö Derma’s advanced formulas have been developed and tested to the highest international clinical standards in our Montreal laboratory. Harnessing the antioxidant power of nature’s superfruit, pomegranate, Pö Derma represents a complete skin care regime that cleanses, repairs and protects skin of any type.

At Pö Derma, we believe happiness and confidence lie at the heart of true beauty. Our products celebrate the beauty you already possess and inspire you to be that same amazing person you’ve always been.

Pö Derma. Forever You.”

So what products am I personally using to make my skin look and feel better? I start each morning with the FLAWLESS DAILY CLEANSER, followed by an application of LUSTRE INTENSE MOISTURIZER. And of course these big lips of mine (especially in the summer) need some love. Thankfully the LUSCIOUS REFINED LIP BALM is compact and I carry it with me everywhere I go. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin, and based on the compliments I keep getting as of late about my appearance, clearly a product designed to help my inner beauty shine through is working. 

Although the brand is mostly tailored to women, and the idea that nothing needs to be “anti-aging”, it’s important to remember that aging is beautiful and so are you – I encourage both men and women to try the products. I couldn’t and wouldn’t be the man I am today without the lessons I have learned (some of them difficult) as I’ve grown and aged. 

I encourage you to check out the Pö Derma website, follow their social media accounts, and really think about what “beautiful” means to you. I want you to feel beautiful about yourself, like I try to do every day with myself. The world is a busy, fast paced, and judgemental place. Why not put out a bit more positive when we can?
