My mother looks wonderful for her age. But you won’t find her googling the latest anti-aging treatments or facelift techniques. She’s 72 and looks maaaaaaybe 60. And while she does “splurge” on having her nails done every two weeks and has her hair colored three (!) times per year, she has a minimalistic but clearly effective skin care regimen. She may not be a glamour-puss, but she does have some tricks up her sleeve! And for the first time, she’s divulging her secrets here, just for you.
Morning: Wash face with Bath & Body Works gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand soap. If skin feels dry, apply some Jergen’s Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer, which costs $8 for 16 (!) ounces.
Night: While showering, wash face with Dial soap: $11 for a pack of 20 (twenty!). Before bed, apply Avon Anew Genics Treatment Cream, or whatever freebie moisturizer I’ve given her most recently (but if you want to buy it, it costs $38 for 1 ounce).
How much money do you spend on your anti-aging beauty routine? Yeah I spend a hell of a lot more too. Granted some of us are cursed with acne or other skin conditions that require special attention. Still, it makes you wonder if it’s all really necessary, does it not? Also: My mom is awesome.
