Getting back into skin care

Posted by on June 22, 2017 at 11:51 pm.

One area that I do slack on is skin care. Yes, I cleanse and moisturize my face, but that’s all I do. I don’t wear any makeup and outside of using the base carrier oils during the warm months and butters like cocoa and shea during the cooler months, I don’t do too much else.

Since I am getting older. I’m 46, I guess I should change that a bit and so I ordered some more rosehip oil and sea buckthorn seed oil. Both are excellent for ‘mature’ skin. Sea buckthorn oil will also turn your skin a lovely shade of orange (temporary) and so I typically was using this at night, both oils are loaded with lots of nutrients that your skin will appreciate. A few years ago, I used it and it did an excellent job eliminating the hyper-pigmentation that I’d occasionally get with my brown skin. Well, I’m starting to get hyper-pigmentation again and so I ordered the oil and this time, I’ll continue to keep it into my daily routine.

Since my life has been hectic, I definitely have been letting some things slide, but I do realize that I need to make the time to include them, because I do need to include myself into the equation also. I’ll try to remember to post pictures of the hyper-pigmentation and the fading process that occurs when I focus on my simple routine. Checking my website, I specifically wrote about my skin care maintenance back in 2013. I had no idea it had been that long ago.
