Today, I want to talk about my personal feelings on aging and what skincare I use. I remember a conversation that my Grandfather and I had the day I turned 30. He called to wish me a happy birthday and all I did was whine about turning 30 and he said that I should enjoy every year and count it as a blessing. What he said made a huge impact and my heart changed from that very moment. Since that day, I enjoy growing older each year. I actually feel like 47 is awesome! I’m not really sure what being 47 years old is supposed to feel like, but with the Lord’s grace it feels great to me. I consider getting older a gift and I don’t ever want to take that for granted. Do I miss being younger? At times I do, mostly because I would love to re-live some of the sweet memories my husband and I had when my boys were younger. I miss the little hugs and kisses from them, however my boys are so much fun to hang out with now as adults!
My skincare routine is pretty simple. I’m not trying to look younger, rather I’m trying to have the best possible skin I can for my age. It would be exhausting for me to try to look like I’m in my 30’s or even early 40’s. One of the best tips someone shared with me before I turned 30 was to stop getting sun on my face. I took her advice and I think that made a huge difference over the years. I always cover my face with a hat when I’m in the sun.
Then, a few years ago I met Colleen Rothschild and tried her beauty line for the first time and loved it! Her line works really well with my sensitive skin and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s actually her 4th Anniversary since starting her beauty line and you can save 20% off with code 4YEARS. Click here to shop site-wide and save.
My Daily Skincare Routine
I wash my face with Colleen Rothschild’s Radiant Cleansing Balm, then every morning I use her Sheer Renewal Cream. This cream helps keep my face moisturized and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Once a week I use her Clarifying Detox Mask and the Dual Enzyme Polish. Both of these are perfect for my sensitive skin and I get great results! Shop my favorites from her line below.
Thank you so much for visiting me today! Here are some scriptures I found on aging! I never really studied them before and now I’m just in awe of the Lord’s blessing over growing old! Some of our best years are ahead of us! Amen!
They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green. Pslam 92:14
Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you. Isaiah 46:4
