Looking back, aging + …skin care? Yes.

August 26, 2011
Here’s a little side trip;

back to the Memory Lane series tomorrow

and if you haven’t, see post from earlier today.

As I look back on the tales I’m blogging about this week, I’m hyper-aware of aging. And the first signs usually appear on our skin. Who has time for complicated skin care routines, much less regular facials?

Busy. We’re all busy. It’s hard to find time to do all the important things on our to-do list, so taking care of ourselves tends to fall to the bottom with a big thud.

How do you take care of your skin when you have zero “me” time?

Like many women my age, I wish I’d paid better attention to skin care when I was younger. Cosmetic companies touted easy “3-step” skin care solutions, but they seemed like such a chore, especially with a busy life. I lived in both Florida and California for a long time. In Florida, I felt like I was living in a facial, but once I landed in northern California, my skin instantly dehydrated.

My favorite quick trick has been to keep a jar or tube of moisturizer at my bedside, making it easy to remember this important anti-aging step. Who taught me this? Another woman, of course.

  2. Yes, usual skin care regimen about washing your face before sleep.. applying creams and moisturisers is a must too. So that looking back.. you still look younger as it should be.
