As I get older...

I realize how important it is to take care of your skin.  Since I was about 18, I was all about the tanning salon.  I had a membership for years!  I associated beauty with a darker skin color (and of course I loved the way it made my abs look).

Now at 27, I'm more concerned with wrinkles!  It's all about slowing down the aging process, especially around my face.  I gave up the tanning about a year ago and embraced the lighter skinned me :).  I also started using a facial and under eye moisturizer daily.  In addition to the moisturizers, I wash my face twice a day and twice a week with a facial scrub.  Using a toner after I wash and before I moisturize seems to get all the old cells and dirt that the face wash didn't catch.

After a year of my new routine, I have definitely seen the difference in my skin.  Not only have I reduced the depth of my "crow's feet", but my skin just seems to glow.  While I didn't have too many breakouts, they have gone down to almost nothing.  And because of the quality of my skin, I've stopped using foundation makeup on my face and only use a mineral powder.  I can't believe the difference it has made!  If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself:

No makeup or retouching (just excuse the bad hair day, I just woke up!).  It's obvious to me now how important it is to take care of my skin.  Let's just hope I don't see the effects of all that tanning later in life!
