We’re just at the very beginning of the rest of your future, so let’s begin to make the right changes that will make sure your future is flawless …
Day 9 : January 9
Assemble your anti-aging team of product superheroes.
By now, you’re in the habit of cleansing and moisturizing everyday and night, plus you know to exfoliate and mask once, if not twice, weekly. These are the key steps to ensuring healthy skin for the rest of 2017. But now, let’s make a habit of treating and preparing your skin for 2017 and beyond … to like 2027 … or 2037.
Remember your notes from Day 1. Let’s reflect back to them. Do you see more fine lines than you care to see? Some dark spots perhaps? Or are you okay … and want to stay okay for as long as possible? Whatever you glean and conclude from your notes, keep those points at the forefront of your mind as we plan your next shopping trip.
Over the next few paychecks, I want you to make both a budget and product plan to pick-up at least 2, if not all 3, of the following items :
- Eye and/or lip cream
A retinol based product can assist you with fading dark spots and stimulating the growth of new skin cells; this is key because as you age, your skin doesn’t produce new cells as efficiently to help repair and keep away the signs of aging. There are plenty of retinol based products on the market, or if you have severe skin issues, you can speak with a dermatologist about something on prescription-strength level.
Serums are available to deliver powerful ingredients directly into the skin – you can target specific skin issues directly such as wrinkles, acne, or improving skintone and texture. A serum is more lightweight than your moisturizer, so you apply it after your cleanse, let it sit, and then you moisturizer.
An eye and/or lip cream treats the most delicate skin on your face. The area around your eyes and lips is more fragile, prone to dryness, and … quickest to show signs of aging. Eye and lip creams are both soothing to the skin and create a smoothing effect for the fine lines that appear around these areas.
Picking up these three products and adding them to your routine creates a powerhouse of protection against the future.
TIP : Your skin is YOUR skin. Research is everything. So remember to do your Google searches and read your reviews.
HOMEWORK : Shop around and don’t just buy the first eye cream you see. Remember to reflect back on your skin notes, and choose something that addresses any of your concerns.
