Beauty is an investment. At least that’s what I’ve been told and I don’t mean that in a “wow, this mascara is $30!?” kind of way. In today’s society, which advertises a thin culture and gives surgical access to people willing to pay large sums of money to achieve their ideal body, beauty can really break the bank. I fight the mold of what is considered beautiful by being my own kind of beautiful.
1. Night Cream and Daily Moisturizer
My mother, who from an early age started applying night cream and face moisturizer every day, has yet to see more than a few wrinkles. She is living proof that taking care of your skin pays off in the long run. I have taken her advice to start young and formed a skincare routine comprised of Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Night Cream, Benefit Cosmetics It’s Potent! Eye Cream, and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+. Making a habit of caring for your skin seems like a chore at first, but I’ve come to acknowledge that 40 years from now I will be thanking myself. These products basically serve as a time capsule.
