"What? Teenage skin? Lisa, you're 37 years old, what are you talking about?"
Well, my face seems to think that 'we' are teenagers again, in that I break out so easily. Now, I will admit to not being the most regimented about washing my face like I should, but, my skin is usually okay. Lately, I break out in these tiny bumps on my forehead and full-out pimples on my chin if I am not good about washing my face. And it still just seems to not look as healthy as it used to.
So I've been thinking lately that I should try real skincare products, as opposed to just bar soap. (Yes, bar soap. But - to my credit, it is Lever 2000.) And I've also been thinking a lot about sun protection for my face. My mother has already dealt with two spots on her face - one was cancerous, and the other was just pre-cancerous, I think. I've never worn product on my face, not even base, so I have had a hard time finding something that feels good and doesn't irritate my skin.I was looking at the Emerge Skin Care site, and I found a facial moisturizer with SPF 30 that is formulated specifically for sensitive skin. I would love to try that! Their products were developed by a team of dermatologists and chemists, and their tagline is 'Where Science Meets Beauty'. I like the sound of that, because, it makes me feel extra safe about using their products. That might sound silly, but, like I said, I've never worn any product on my face. I've never worn moisturizer or base or even normal sunblock (which always burns). So I am extra picky, I think, about picking out a sun protection formula.
And I would also like to venture away from my bar soap routine and try some actual facial cleanser, for this silly face that is revisiting my youth! Emerge has a sensitive skin formula that has chamomile in it - that sounds great!
I really need to start taking better care of this old face! Emerge would be a great place to start!
