As I get older, I prioritize taking care of my skin more and more. I was jolted into this a few years ago by a PSA (Yup, those apparently do work) that listed the five criteria of people most likely to develop skin cancer, I had 3. I immediately texted my mom in a panic asking for the name of her dermatologist so I could get an appointment next week when I was home. It was a reality slap (almost literally) and I started wearing baseball hats to the pool and upping my SPF level.
I also started making it more of a point to moisturize my skin in the morning and at night. After a long day, I could get lazy about just washing my face or even using a makeup wipe before face-planting into my pillow. I’d sometimes get into a streak of remembering to moisturize, then forget one day and it was back to square one. It was just so easy to fall out of the habit. I did a little experiment and placed my facial moisturizer on my bedside table. It was a success! Even if I’m half-asleep (thank you, chewable melatonin!), I’ll remember to moisturize since it’s staring me right in the face.
IT Cosmetics sent me a package several weeks ago with some new skincare products to test out. I’m a huge fan of IT Cosmetics and use their CC cream, undereye concealer and mascara every day. I was excited to try out their Secret Sauce, Bye Bye Redness and Miracle Water. I wanted to give it a fair shot so I’ve been using these skincare products consistently for several weeks now so let’s get into it!
