Skincare is important. Duh.
And while I do not consider myself an expert by any means, I do pat myself on the back for proper, routine skin care.
Ladies, you have GOT to take care of your skin!
I am in my mid (ok that is a strech...) twenties these days and I swear I am starting to see wrinkles.
ok but seriously, I often get told I don't look a day over 22, HA, and I like to attribute that to the fact that I take care of my skin.
I started using the Mary Kay time wise skin set probably about 5 years ago, right out of college.
I have pretty normal skin, not too sensitive, and not too oily. So I use the normal to dry kind.
According to the website, "The timewise set
1. 3 in 1 cleanser - It cleanses, exfoliates and refreshes all in one step.
2. age fighting moisturizer - formulated with antioxidants and a patented complex to help skin's renewal process
3. Day solution - packed with SPF 25, to prevent aging from sun
4. Night solution - packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and collagen enhancing peptides.
I use all of these daily, and I swear my favorite time of day (besides happy hour) is when I wash my face. It's like a chorus of angels singin' ;)
How else do I keep my skin so baby fresh?
I use this about once a week, it is amazing. I feel like I just had a facial at one of those pirzzicey spas. I think I have blogged about this before... yep, here.
And I also am obsessed with the Restore and Recover Complex. You use it at night, to speed up collagen production, and help skin repair from damage of the day. It feels amazing, trust. Also just earned the Good Housekeeping seal.
ALONG with mu Mary Kay essentials, I use my clarisonic Mia daily. It helps take off 6x more makeup, minimizes pores, and helps prep your skin for better absorption of serums and creams.
and this next thing I WANT. I have noticed the skin around my eyes is changing. EEEK.
We need to firm up. Just... all over firm really.
this is my deal.
I am sure you can spend hundreds more dollars out there, and there is ALWAYS going to be something new 'top of the line' that intrigues you, but this is what I have found that works for me. The key for me I think, is to moisturize. Keep that skin as soft as a baby heiney knowwhatimsayin? I am hoping that preventative care now while I am still young, ahem, will pay off in 10, and 20 years.

That's what I got girls! That's how I keep this skin in check!
