Skin care needs a routine

I don't know what causes those little signs of puberty to pop up on my face and remind me that my skin ALWAYS needs to be a diligent party of my daily routine, but I'll wake up in the morning and there it will be.

                                                               Like a life force of it's own.

                                                                      Waving at me.

What is the cause of those annoying little ways for my kids to point and say, "Mommy... you have a bump."

Yea.. I know, in fact it woke me up this morning playing video games. Thanks for the reminder.

Every night it's the same thing, I wash my face, brush my teeth and then use some skin moisturizer. That doesn't make me smell old or feel like I've got a layer of shellac on my face.

I don't ask for much in my skin care routine, just enough to keep me looking young long enough for my baby girl to get out of high school and go off to college. Then I'm supposed to get a wrinkle or two... fair enough?

How about you? Do you have a skin care routine? What kind of things do you use for your face and hands that help you stay sane in the ever changing world of moisturizers and lotions? Is there a moisturizer that smells good and is good for you? Care to share it with me?

I am participating in a blogger campaign in behalf of Kate Somerville skin care and received compensation to facilitate this post. However, the views and opinions are my own.

Well, your skin is beautiful, so I don't think you have anything to worry about as far as evading wrinkles until your kids are off to college!

I didn't start getting acne until 18. All through high school I felt sorry for others, thinking I had evaded it. Nope. It's been with me ever since. I have a ginormous routine: 5 steps. Do I do them all every day? Nope. And it always catches up with me. I just do my best!

I use NuSkin skin care and since moving to Colorado, can't do without a salt scrub for my hands. Lately, have started seeing an aesthetician and have added even more products to my routine. I've accepted the fact that I'm old! And this is the rest of my life! lol!

I find that drinking more water and avoiding greasy foods - esp at night - helps with break outs. I believe SPF is the best defense against aging (that and genetics) ;)
