Two weeks ago I turned 36, but about six birthday’s ago (actually make that 8) I started noticing the dreaded lines on my face. Coincidence that this started happening after the birth of my first child? Maybe…… definitely. With less sleep and less time to care for myself, I started relying on skincare products to undo some of the damage that comes with less sleep, dehydration, sun exposure etc…. (chugging a glass of water as we speak). In the few times I have gotten a facial, the aestheticians rattle off scary facts about your skin… loosing collagen starting at age 18 being one of them. And that was 18 years ago…..
The key to slowing down the signs of aging is to really baby your skin. And while monthly facials might not be in the cards, there are products you can use every day that can be extremely effective. I have always been a Kiehl’s junkie. What can I say? I like to stick with the brands that have been around the longest and “since 1851” gives me the peace of mind that this company knows their skincare stuff. A few weeks ago I started using the Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. I keep hearing over and over that vitamin C and hyaluronic acid are among the most important when it comes to improving skin tone and minimizing wrinkles. And let me tell you, this little bottle packs a punch. It goes on silky smooth and just after a few weeks I can tell my skin is more “nourished” and supple, and less tired. Might have something to do with the fact that it is 12.5% Vitamin C?! The reviews speak for themselves. And while I blog mostly about the outfits I wear, healthy skin is super important to me and one of the key pieces to feeling good about myself. Distressed jeans and cute booties are just the icing on the cake.
