As I approach 40 a lot of things are different. One thing is that my hair is turning gray. Sometimes I pull the gray hairs, sometimes I just try to figure out a different way to wear my hair so that they aren’t so prominent. Many of my friends tell me they don’t even notice them. My kids have started telling me that I will soon be old.
So many other things have changed as well. I am actually in to a routine of flossing nightly….something I wish I had been doing for years. (Thank you COVID-19 lock down!) I sweat a lot more when I workout (I am guessing this is something hormonal). I don’t sleep well, but this could be due to stresses in my life.
And finally, my skin is changing. I am getting far more wrinkles on my face and my skin is drier than it has ever been. And that brings me to my thought for today…..question really.
Is it vain to try and use a cream to improve your skin as you age?
I am considering using something with retinols and hyaluranic acids and all of the other crazily termed chemicals out there. Partly for vanity and partly for the health of my skin as regular moisturizers don’t seem to do the trick at this time. I have even had to switch to using a cream with ceramides to prevent eczema patches from appearing on my elbows (something I never had before I was pregnant with my oldest).
I have never been the vain type….at least in my eyes. I am feeling a little down on myself for even considering this course of action. So, tell me
What is your “beauty” regimen?
