The Best of Me

I’ll be the first to admit, I love make up, but when I wash my face at night and it all comes off, that’s when I feel my truest self, my best. Coming home and cleaning my face is the equivalent of taking off the painful shoes at the end of the day.

How much time does a woman spend applying make up on a daily basis? I know it makes us feel good to “enhance” or hide, but we must not forget to try to spend that much time caring for our skin. We must remember that our skin endures a lot: make up, sweat, sun rays, etc, but most importantly our skin without make up is our natural beauty. 

This picture is of me without make up: No foundation, no eyeliner, no mascara... no nothing! I will say this is a first here on my blog, but a much needed first because it feels liberating!! Yes, I have wrinkles, I have dark spots, but hey that's me!


  
When I was younger I took my skin for granted, but as I age it becomes clear to me that caring for my skin is essential. I wash my face in the mornings and evenings, I moisturize and protect my skin with SPF in between. Over time, I add new ingredients to my skincare routine depending on my skin’s needs and NEUTROGENA® Rapid Tone Repair has been one of my favorite additions. It is a fast-acting lightweight silky moisturizer that is clinically proven to help fade the look of dark spots, and discoloration giving skin a healthier look with minimal irritation! 
 NEUTROGENA® Rapid Tone Repair has a day time version (with SPF protection) and a night time version. Both of which are ah-mazing!
