As the countdown to my 50th birthday on December 25th draws near, I find myself reflecting on the incredible journey of getting older and the beauty that comes with embracing every stage of life. In this blog post, I'm excited to share my personal skincare journey, focusing on the products that have become my allies in the quest for a more youthful appearance. If you're over 40 and navigating the challenges of aging skin, this post is for you.
I am so encouraged by the beauty women I personally know and even many of the celebrities on social media, that have embraced their 50th birthday! I am excited for the second half of my life.
The Battle with Dark Circles:
One of the most common struggles I've faced is dealing with dark circles under my eyes, a result of aging, lack of sleep, eczema, and genetics. I've experimented with numerous high-end brands, some causing adverse reactions to my sensitive skin or yielding minimal results. Enter the Good Molecules Yerba Mate Wake Up Eye Gel – an affordable gem that has truly made a difference.
Some of the Top Selling Brands caused my skin underneath my eyes to be thinner, rashes, patchiness and some simply did not yield any positive results.
The Unsung Hero: Discoloration Correcting Serum:
Good Molecules strikes again with their Discoloration Correcting Serum, a behind-the-scenes powerhouse. While not flashy with immediate results, this serum works consistently to fade discoloration. I've found that it not only brightens my skin but also provides a subtle glow that has friends and family wondering about my secret.
My trouble areas have been my chin and cheeks. This serum has lightening these areas beautifully. I use the serum 1 - 2 times a day, with constant use for the last 6 months.
The Ordinary's Game-Changer: AHA 30% + BHA 2% Solution:
For a cost-effective yet powerful solution, I turn to The Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% Solution. This intensive exfoliation treatment has become a game-changer in my skincare routine. Applying the red-hued serum twice a month has significantly improved how my other skincare products penetrate, enhanced my makeup application, and reduced clogged pores and breakouts.
To add a personal touch to my skincare journey, I've created a small video showcasing the application of this product. This video will not only provide a visual demonstration but also reinforce the genuine impact this product had on my skin.
