One thing I have noticed recently is slight, fine lines on my face. Of course, these are naturally occurring but there are preventative measures that can be taken to make these lines fade or take a longer time to appear. I do not want to look back when I am 50 and wish I had my younger skin back. I would rather be happy in my own skin and the way it is aging by taking extra care of it and maintaining it properly each day.
I have never had a true daily skincare regimen. I’d like to say I have been blessed by the fact that my skin has never acted up from not being cared for properly. But I do not want to continue taking advantage of this. I have allowed my face to have hours of full sun exposure at the beach. I have worn a full face of make up for hours. I have combo skin (meaning oily at times or dry at times) and would not properly wash my skin, moisturize it, or exfoliate it from any dead skin cells. All of this contributes to your skin aging poorly.
Caring for your skin takes time and research. You do not want to be putting just any product on your face. Tons of beauty products we use each day contain so many harmful, damaging chemicals on our skin, that then are absorbed into the body. So how is that supposed to make your skin feel healthier and more youthful?
Did you know that the US FDA bans only 30 ingredients in our beauty products and the European Union bans 1,300?! Knowing the FDA, that didn’t shock me… but, at least it is nice to know other countries try to keep a better environment for their citizens. However, one amazing thing I found out about Mary Kay, an American consulting makeup line, is that they choose to follow the European Union guidelines when it comes to their products. Knowing these facial products will not contain a huge majority of the chemicals the US allows is very comforting.
I have had the privilege to work with Aliyah Goni (link attached) in trying out these newer, high-end products that Mary Kay released for skincare with anti-aging properties. She is a Mary Kay consultant and gave me such great tips and information regarding these products.
The following changes I have noticed in just a short week have been: smoothness, luminosity, and resilience (just by doing the steps below). Major changes, such as, fine lines and wrinkles can take a few weeks to see a difference.
