25 in 25: Start a Skin Care Regime

Sunday, August 18, 2013

Well I'm less than a month away from my 26th birthday and it's time I start wrapping up some of the more long running goals.

Starting a skin care regime was one of my more lame goals but it was something that unless I wrote it down I knew it was never going to happen.  I've been very lucky to have decent skin but I know I can't assume it will stay that way forever.  I'm not really worried about wrinkles and all of that, but I want to do what I can to keep my skin healthy before it's too late.

So what did I do?

Not much.

I made a point of buying some facial moisturizer that I tried to be good about putting on each night.  I've also become almost obsessive with sunblock this summer.  I've always been a big sunblock user but this year I made sure to buy a couple new bottles (I've had a horrific experience with an expired bottle that magnified the sun instead of protect me from it!).  Even with half a dozen applications in a day I still managed to get a few burns this season but generally much better than I've been in the past.

I've also been big on the aloe after the sun and I even stocked up on body creams from Bath and Body Works (but really that was just because they were on sale and I like to smell fruity.)

So, not a very exciting post but I think I can cross this off my list.  Now the hard part will be actually keeping up with it without that ever nagging knowledge that I'll have to blog about it!
