Hello gorgeous. You want to be as beautiful as you can be, right? I know I do. The stark truth is – you need your skin to look as beautiful and youthful possible to look your best. There is no getting around it – especially as we get older. Dry skin, wrinkles and fine lines are the sign of neglected skin. The best way to keep your skin beautiful and young looking is to take care of it to the highest level possible. This means your skin care routine has to become a ritual. Having gorgeous young skin for the long haul requires scrupulous daily care.
I want to look great regardless of my age – and I have the knowledge and tools to do it. I’ve been studying skincare for 30 years, so I know what truly works. I am on top of the newest anti-aging agents and know how and when to use them and in which order and combinations. I perform my skincare routine obsessively and have my entire adult life. I know it works because I get lots of compliments on my skin.
So I’m eager to share this bank of knowledge with my friends – not keep it to myself. It is never too late to start turning the clock back and enjoy your best-looking skin.
Here is an outline of my morning drill: In the morning I gently cleanse my face (including my neck and decollate). Next I apply serums and creams with very specific ingredients in a deliberate order. I always always always top it off with a good sunscreen. . In previous blogs I have explained some of the nuts and bolts of my skin care routine. Check these out for more details. I will continue to add information in the future.
Make a commitment to yourself today to take the utmost care of your skin. If you do nothing else today please add a high-quality moisturizer to your morning and evening routine. Infusing your skin with moisture will have an immediate dramatic affect. The real secret is applying a cream or lotion that have Hyaluronic Acid and at least one of these: Dimethicone, Cocoa Butter, Mango or Shea Butters, or Mineral Oil in the ingredients list.
Hyaluronic Acid is a powerhouse humectant (water carrying molecule) small enough to penetrate you’re skin’s first layers and bring moisture in with it – plumping your skin so that lines and wrinkles fade and disappear.
Dimethicone, Cocoa Butter, Mango or Shea Butters, or Mineral Oil, called occlusors, are agents which form a barrier on your skin that keep moisture in your skin, and keep pollutants out.
The combination of these ingredients in any one moisturizer is a huge shot of beauty for your skin. Start it TODAY.
Excellent over-the-counter moisturizers with this combination of ingredients are: Cera Ve Moisturizing Cream; Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream Moisturizer; and Clinique Moisture Surge™ Extended Surge Extended Thirst Relief
