Skin care

I made a list of 33 things I want to do before I turn 33 in June 2014.  See the full list here.

32.  Develop a skin care routine.  Or at least start taking off my makeup before I go to bed.  I KNOW.

Despite attending a few Mary Kay & Friends parties a year for the past 10 years, I’ve never had a consistent skin care routine other than washing my face in the shower in the morning, and honestly, I’ve never even taken my makeup off at night on a regular basis.  I know.  I’m a little embarrassed for me, too.

I was blessed with good genetics and pretty good skin (Thanks, Mom!) It’s not fairy-twinkle luminescent or anything, but it’s acne-free for the most part and doesn’t get too gross in the summertime.  But, I know in the long run it’s better for my skin if I take care of it and go to bed with a clean face.  

So since making my 33-before-33 list, I’ve been trying.  It’s not every night that I remember to wash and moisturize before I go to bed, but I’m up to probably 5 or 6 nights a week now.  And yes, I SPF at night, too.  Pale is the new tan, people.

Honestly, I don’t know if it’s making a difference or not.  I haven’t really noticed any changes over the past couple of months.  I’ll let you know when I’m 80 and wrinkly.
