People in my life whom I meet daily say they do not believe me when I tell them I am getting close to 57 years old. I usually just say , don't lie when they say I look in my early to mid forty's. Officially with the life I have had I should look about 134 years old. They ask what is my secret?. I do not have one. My make up takes me about 10 minutes to apply. It is very minimal , yes I do have a few wrinkles but over doing it with foundation will make them stand out. When you apply foundation you could do as I do , just a tiny blob (less than half a pea size) blended in on one side of the face and nose then the same for the other side. Then a tiny blob on the chin blended downwards and sidewards on the neck.
I use no moisturiser morning or night , the one thing I do use is a facial scrub morning and night. A good facial scrub will remove any dead skin , that also removes all traces of make up , it feels good too. Keeping your pores clean is very important , at night or day after use with the facial srcub your natural skin oils will appear , that means no need to add artificial oils.
I still say I do look my age but when I meet others my own age I can see what others mean. Some people just let themselves go , all I can do is my best with what I have , my best is least not more.
If you are in my age group or any age group just give it a go. You can pay well over the top for what they call natural skin care products. If you look at the ingredients they are not natural. The word Natural is just what it says and means , nothing artificial.
The attached photo was taken today , 2nd of August 2014 , it is raw , that means it has not been enhanced or messed with , just resized for upload. So this is just how everyone in my life see's me , it took me just 10 minutes to apply my make up as it does most days. It is not a pretty sight but I get by just fine.
Take care , Julia xx
