Wrinkles & Zits



Zits………………..DOUBLE BOO!!!

Wrinkles and zits…..WTF????

There needs to be some kind of warning, or manual about what happens to your skin when you turn 12 years old. First comes the pimples, then more pimples, then HUGE VOLCANOS THAT LIVE ON YOUR FACE AND NEVER LEAVE!!

Next up, wrinkles. If you were like me when I was in my early 20’s you became a goddess of the sun. Why? OBVIOUSLY because being tan was just SO INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT (if I knew then what I know now….).

Then all of the sudden BAM you have lines around your eyes and lips…..and forehead…..oh and your neck too. Wrinkles don’t come alone either, they bring their friends sun damage and dark spots to the party! PERFECT! (not really though…..)

Now here I am in my mid 30’s and having to deal with not just pimples, but wrinkles too. Why on god’s green earth should I, or anyone for that matter, have to deal with both AT THE SAME TIME!! It’s frustrating, I put on wrinkle cream followed by zit cream.  It just doesn’t seem right.  I am old enough to gamble, vote, pay taxes, DRINK!! Shouldn’t I at least be over the whole breakout thing?!


I need to just CALM DOWN, and get off my soap box long enough to share with you  my four favorite skincare products. The first three are a bit on the pricey side, but 100% worth it!


Most recently I started using Luna Sleeping Night Oil. I am obsessed with this stuff. The morning after the first night I used it I saw a difference in my skins appearance. It works on all skin types, and a little bit goes a very long way. I have been religiously using it for about 2 months now and I can’t see myself stopping…..ever.

Truth serum

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum is new to my skincare routine as well. I was a devout Perfectionist by Estee Lauder user, but I stumbled upon this serum and sadly my Perfectionist has been replaced. This stuff is so good. Like the Luna Sleeping Oil I saw results with this product right away. In a nutshell this serum is a big ole dose of vitamins for your skin. It contains collagen as well to help plump out those wrinkles taking residence upon your face. It smells AMAZING too! (Just like oranges if you are wondering)

Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Night is by far the best night cream I have ever used. I have tried many different lotions and potions, but this moisturizer is one I will never stop using. It truly does what it says, lifts and firms and leaves your skin feeling super soft without that gross greasy feeling some creams can leave behind. If you are looking to try a night cream for the first time I highly recommend this one!

clean & clear

Last, but most certainly not least, Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. What can I say, I have used this stuff since that first pimple welcomed itself upon my face at age 12! It is so good at getting rid of those pesky pimples in a short amount of time. It’s comparable to Clinique’s Acne Spot Healing gel, only half the price! SCORE!

There you have it folks, because of these four products I have the skin of an angel!!!!!!

Ok that’s going a little far, but I am able to keep the wrinkles and pimples at bay…..most of the time.
