Wheee! Our first guest post, brought to you by reader Zia who wanted to share her adulting tips on skin care. As you will see, she’s a fabulous writer. So…hopefully you’ll see more from her soon. Do you want to write a guest post? Just drop me a line!
Think back to the eons ago when you first started something of a skin care regimen. How did you decide what products to use?
For me, it was a Noxzema commercial. Remember Noxzema? (Surprisingly still a thing). I saw those older girls with their gorgeous complexions cruising in convertibles and being cool and talking to boys with confidence. Sold.
I probably read somewhere that cleanser wasn’t enough to really clean skin and you had to follow up with an astringent. So, I started using Sea Breeze.
Noxzema and Sea Breeze. Lawd have mercy I am dating myself.
Human anatomy and I have always butted heads. I am entirely made up of bits and pieces that I want to know nothing about because they’re ugly, gross, messy, confusing and most especially frustrating because they don’t do what they’re supposed to and often break down on me.
This attitude has worked great for me because our society promotes this way of thinking. We love to focus on the most superficial parts and solutions. Don’t ask why you’re overweight, breaking out, not sleeping, feeling depressed, having chronic pain. Don’t ask what the pill, drink, workout routine, detox program is doing. Just do it and carry on. And if you can, try to look great while pulling it all off.
