Turkey Gobble?

25 Apr

Have you ever been to the Amusement park and been by the booth that guesses your age?  Usually on a women one of the main ways someone can guess a woman’s age is by looking at your neck and hands.  Do you have a turkey gobble?  If you do get a scarf and hide it 🙂 haha actually you need to make sure you moisturize, lighten age spots, wear spf, and exfoliate.  All the things I have talked about in other War on Wrinkle posts you need to make sure you do it all to your neck and declotee area.  Make sure you do your skin care to your bra line foundation to your jaw line 🙂  You always want to make sure you don’t end up with the younger looking face and older neck.  I do not want to end up with a turkey gobble.  So I will make sure I always do my skin care antiaging on my face, neck and hands.  If you ever have extra moisturizer or anti-aging products put the excess down your neck than on to your hands and arms.  Some people tell me that they wipe it on a towel or wash it off  AAAGH!  Why on earth would you waste perfectly good products.  You paid good money for that.  🙂  Remember take good care of your skin!  Don’t end up with a Turkey Gobble!!

Flawless and Fair vs. Wrinkly and Dark!

18 Apr

How many of us LOVE the sun.  I do and I LOVED sun bathing.  I would do all the outside chores, I would play the guitar out in the sun.  I would lay a blanket out on the grass and do homework.  I would do a ton just out in the sun! I used to try to be two to three shades darker in foundation and all over.  I have a friend that LOVES to fake bake and she used to tell me “Tan fat is better than white fat!”  haha still makes me laugh.  Although sometimes I think that is true.  I finally decided I would rather have flawless fair skin than Wrinkly dark skin.  Now don’t get me wrong I wish I was just a couple shades darker, but if I have to choose between aging and fair skin I have decided I would rather be fair.  The FDA and health department says we need to have atleast 30spf on our faces every day whether the sun is out or not.  I have a friend that got skin cancer from the iradescent lights in her office building.  You never know where the damage is coming from!  Decide today you are going to take better care of your skin!  I know for me.  I have not sun bathed since high school I go out in the sun.  But I don’t go out for the only purpose to sunbathe and I also put sunscreen on.  I know some of us that are oily skin have problems with sunscreen because it just makes us feel oily.  I had to find a sunscreen that is made specifically for the face and that is light.  Then it didn’t make me more oily and make me feel like grease pit.  So make sure you find the right kind 🙂  Much love to you and your skin!  Take care of it because guess what you will have it for the rest of your life.  You might can pay a doctor to move it around but unless you get a face plant you will have the skin you have chosen to take care of or the lack therof.
