Getting In The Habit

Many women worry about aging, but women vary a lot in what skin care regimen they choose – if any. At one end you have the gal who is fifty but jeans are still her go-to wardrobe staple. She jumps out of bed, takes a shower, a dab of makeup, some lipstick and she’s good to go. But it still bothers her that crows feet are beginning to show.

At the opposite end of the spectrum you have the woman who never takes less than an hour to perform her beauty regimen in the morning, and only slightly less at night. She knows which cleansers reduce pore size the most, has comparison shopped for moisturizers and has been scrutinizing the tiny lines at the corners of her mouth since she was eleven.

To the second woman all we can say is, “Take time to breathe. It doesn’t have to be that hard. Simplify your routine and make more time for enjoying life.” She’s taking great care of her skin she may just be worrying too much.

Maybe she’s a busy executive and she’s not wearing jeans but her hands are always on her smart-phone or laptop. Maybe she’s the outdoorsy type and is on the go at 6:00 am to catch the best surfing waves. Or she may be doing Mom duty or caring for an elderly parent. Whatever it is, the beauty routine had better be simple and effective or she won’t consider it.

We hear that loud and clear. May we suggest, if you’ve been too busy to exfoliate, moisturize, cleanse and purify that you start small and make two things part of your routine. 1) Cleanse your face with a good facial cleanser when you shower. Before, after, or during, whatever works for you. Just take the time to do that instead of using bar soap. Your face will thank you. We suggest a mild Rose Hip Seed Oil Cleanser

Then, when your face is clean gently work in our Peptide 6® moisturizer before you pull on your tailored slacks or your jeans.It will only take a minute and if you do wear a foundation you’ll find it goes on more smoothly and looks better when your skin is not so rough. Just try that for a week. See if you can make a habit of it. If you can make it a whole month you’re going to keep going because you’re going to hear, “You look great, what have you been doing?” And that’s a good incentive to keep going!
