Have you ever done something that you should be really proud of but manage to deflate it with your own self-criticism? Last year, I assisted the McDonald’s PR team by contributing to a video to publicize a Happy Meal reading initiative. Only a handful of bloggers were asked to help and I was one of them. I was super proud and very excited.
Except for one thing… I couldn’t get past all my wrinkles. While my husband said they are expression lines, I see them as age lines. I hate it. As I explained when I shared about essential oils, I’m not a fan of looking older.
I have always been very cautious about my skin, using minimal amounts of makeup and sunscreen whenever venturing outside. Unfortunately, I’m sill seeing signs of age. Maybe it’s because, you know, I’m getting older. Anti-aging products have been around for a while but even before that, I didn’t give much thought to how well my skin was aging. Wish I knew then what I know now…
Recently I received a sample of Ageless Derma Anit-Wrinkle Cream and was cautiously optimistic and cautiously skeptical. When it comes to miracle-in-a-bottle type products, I always am. Using the product daily underneath my makeup, I gradually noticed a change in my skin. Aside from feeling more hydrated, it seemed like the wrinkles weren’t as prominent. Actually, just a few days ago Miss K said “Mom, whatever you’re using for your wrinkles is WORKING!”
My intention was to show before and after pictures but I’m not a professional photographer and that just wasn’t happening. Trust me when I say that I noticed a change… and I’m my biggest critic. My skin feels softer and the wrinkles aren’t as defined. Even when I furrow my brow, I don’t notice them as much as I used to. If there’s something that can deplete your excitement about something fantastic, then it’s worth addressing.
