Unless you’ve been living under a rock there’s an old saying of “Black Don’t Crack”. While this may be true in most cases, if you don’t take care of your mind, body and soul you’ll end up looking a hot ratchet mess! I for one am not about that life and would like to keep looking “29” LOL It wasn’t until I reached my 40s before I finally found a perfect combination of things to help me look and feel younger! Now my knees on the other hand haven’t caught on to that but hopefully they’ll catch on soon!
I’ve also learned that the price of a product doesn’t necessarily mean its going to work the best. Many of the items I use are over the counter and I splurge on a few products that I know will do what they promise and more.
1 | Maintain a Good Skin Care Regimen
I like to keep my skin care regimen very simple. My dad is knocking on 80 and I swear that man doesn’t have ONE SINGLE WRINKLE! And my mom also keeps her regimen simple and has been using Ponds Cold Cream since I was a teenager. My skin however is very oily and it took what seems like years before I finally figured out a good combination. I use Bioré® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser with my face brush, follow that with a hyaluronic acid serum with vitamin C and Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream. I’ve been dealing with my face looking like I smeared chicken grease on it toward the middle of the day and JUST learned about gel moisturizers. And once a week I’ll use my charcoal face mask from KJ Naturals. I’m also wanting to incorporate treating myself to monthly facials. 😉
