Another Birthday, another day getting older…Another day – needing to find a good wrinkle cream for fear of old age creeping up on me unawares!
Last week saw me turn 27 years old.
Yep – the big 2. 7.
(My fella got me these beautiful white roses. They were delivered to my office, so I brought ‘em home with me – I turned bright red and bashful :)).
(And these gorgeous Tiffany diamonds on a white gold setting. So special).
My friend, who is in her early 30s asked me yesterday if I had started to use wrinkle creams. I said I hadn’t as yet, but I know that prevention is better than cure, so I should be on the lookout for a good one…The most important thing is that it is cruelty-free, not tested on animals and vegan.
I would rather have a weathered face than the knowledge that I have contributed to the pain, torture, misery and inevitable death of another being. No matter what species they are.
Especially beings that can’t talk…Or won’t be listened to.
Nevertheless, I need an anti-aging cream/wrinkle cream.
At the moment, I do have a skincare routine; depending on the time I have on that particular morning, or how tired I am at night; it usually consists of
-Make-up removal; using an oil-based cleanser/make-up remover – that concentrates on eye makeup and mascara..I wear a lot of this.
- Toner, non-acidic; just to bring my skins PH levels back to normality.
- Coconut oil – 100%. Yep – the same one you use for cooking. My friend Tessa, recently introduced me to oils in skincare routines, and this has definitely been making a difference to overall glow and smoothness.
- Rose water – Yep, the same one you use for cooking also. I use this last, after the application of the coconut oil, it removes the greasiness, and makes my skin feel ultra soft!
- Moisteriser – This is a must. I use it all over, especially on face, neck, elbows, arms, knees and feet. I get dry skin so it’s really nice. I also have very oily skin in certain areas – my face; namely T-Zone; so definitely combination skin here!
What is your skincare routine?
Do you use oils? What kind/s?
Do you swear by a product? Perhaps an unusual one – I’d like to hear it! :)
I’ve recently been looking into homemade face masks, and am experimenting with grapes, strawberries, banana and oatmeal! It’s fun…And yummy.
Are there any foods you use on your skin/hair?
