As most of you know, I am knocking on 30's door! I will be turning 30 years old (can't believe it) in less than six months. Well, I am still on the fence about if I am ready for it or not, but I really don't have a choice in the situation. But, lately, I have been reminded about this age mark. I have never been an individual that had to worry about acne. Even as a teenager, I didn't experience really bad breakouts. I may get one pimple every couple of months, and even then, it didn't hang around long. Well, I think God is finding humor in my turning the big 3 0 because I have now experienced more acne than ever before. If I didn't know better, I would think I had just hit puberty. I even had to break down and purchase a back scrubber (sorry for the juicy details) that has now worked wonders.
After sitting down and thinking about all of this, I came to the conclusion that I haven't been so generous to my skin. I have done good about removing eye makeup daily with the best stuff on the market: Pond's cold cream. I have used it for years and still love it!!! But, that is the extent of my facial care. I haven't used special "face" soap or even attempted to exfoliate regularly. I usually just use whatever soap is in the shower at that time and never think twice about it. Well, today is the start of a new facial regimen for me. I am determined to have youthful-looking skin and to attempt to trick the signs of aging (as best I can).
After doing a lot of research by reading testimonials and reviews, I have decided to start using the following products:
