This 40-Something’s Skin Care Routine

February 24, 2020 2 Comments

Sooooooo I don’t know about you, but skin care is oh-so-important to me now that I’ve reached a certain uh hum age. And I thank God everyday that I didn’t spend a ton of my teenage years sitting in a tanning bed as so many of my peers were doing back in the mid-90s. And I also thank God for something called the spray tan cuz I am PASTY white and tanned cellulite looks a heck of a lot better than white cellulite.

My daughters are half-Hispanic and the running joke in our family is that I have to pay to get brown.

Not gonna lie, until recently, I was oh-so-lazy when it came to my night time skin care routine. Early twenties? Slept in my makeup cuz coming home from the bars at 2:00 am and having to get up for an 8:00 am class meant I had no time to take off my makeup. In my mid-twenties, I was blurry eyed most of the time with a baby/toddler and going to school plus working full time.

It wasn’t until I was in my 30s when I realized that hey, I need to take care of this stuff or I’m gonna look old before I want to. I’m not afraid of aging…but I would like to age as gracefully as possible. And let’s look at the ladies like J-Lo and Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Bell (I swear we’d be friends in real life if she knew me) and Julia Roberts. They’re showing the world that just because you reach your 40s doesn’t mean you suddenly have to stop wearing trendy makeup and clothes…but I digress.

So here is my night time skin care routine. It’s pretty simple, not like the multiple step Korean skin care routines I’ve seen out there. (More power to those that have the time for that!) And the best part? I’ve gotten every single one of these products at Target!
