Hi!This my first post on my blog and this is so silly....I'm nervous, I feel like I should have some training wheels on or something! Ok, breathe in....here we go :)
Usually, I don't go to bed this late...but,no matter what, I do this every night before I go to bed and that is take off my make up. Plain and simple...it keeps your skin healthy. When we talk about aging gracefully, we gotta do this. When I was younger I just used Cetaphil cleanser and Cetaphil cream, (it used to be so simple!)But now I incorporate a retinoid and a skin lightener. The retinoid I use is prescribed by my dermatologist, it's called Adapalene cream 0.1% the skin lightener is from my derm as well, it has Hydroquinone 8% in it. I'll talk about that more in another blog... There are several good retinoids OTC, so don't think you have to go to the derm!! The reason I use the skin lightener is because as we age, our skin changes (obviously) and so on this part of my journey, I got hyper pigmentation (lucky me). Now, I gotta warn you...when using these products you really need to use a sunscreen at least a 35, actually, even if you don't use these products, USE SUNSCREEN!!!
Well, fell asleep in between the start and finish....gonna get a little cardio in before I start my day!!
Let me know what your thoughts are, what products you use....let's figure some of this out together!! I'm excited...
