You probably don’t, yet that doesn’t explain why I see you hovering around the anti aging display. You see, I have a bit of a bone to pick with skincare companies. Somewhere along the line it was decided that perhaps for the sake of universal design, ease of use, blah blah blah, tester units should have age ranges printed under their product.
If you’ve followed along with previous posts, you know that wrinkles and gravity don’t discriminate whether you’re 16 or 60. Wrinkles are not something you can outsmart by pre-emptive strikes with moisturizers labelled 50+.
But if I start now, I can avoid the aging experienced by the women in those categories!
If that were true, we’d all be Stepford wives. The reality is that no matter how many ‘age prevention’ products the industry throws at us, nothing prevents the onslaught of visible aging better than diligent, basic skincare. (And of course a healthy lifestyle – but you don’t need me to tell you that.) Don’t you ever wonder why the woman in her 60’s who claims she’s used Olay since she borrowed it from her mothers dresser as a teenager, has such smooth, glowing skin for her age? It’s not in the water – err…cream. It’s diligence my dears.
Find the right products to love your skin, and it will love you back for the rest of your life.
