So next week I turn 36 and, as I inch closer and closer to the big 4-0, I’m realizing that I need to start taking better care of my skin. Don’t get me wrong, I wash, exfoliate, and moisturize every day, but I’m discovering that things are starting to change and the cream I pick up during my grocery store run isn’t cutting it any longer.
The problem is, I’m pretty naive when it comes to skin care and am always overwhelmed any time I try to figure out a routine. At the end of the day, I end up with a hodge-podge of products and just cross my fingers that they are all actually doing something. I often find myself admiring other people’s skin, wondering what it is that they do to perfect it and – not just how do I get there – but where do I even start?!
So here I am – starting! I can’t tell you how excited I am to team up with NWA Center for Plastic Surgery, specifically their Skin Care Center. I just had my first consultation yesterday and leading up to my appointment felt like waiting for Christmas morning. I didn’t have any idea what to expect, but I was ready for the experts to have their way with my face. Over the next six months I’m going to document my journey as I try some core treatments and a regimented (and finally consistent) skin care routine. I’ll share my journey along the way, talking about my entire experience – not just the cool products (which, by the way, are very cool), but the maintenance as well. I feel like much of the treatments are kept “hush hush” on a personal level, but I’ve been so curious for so long, that I’m ready to try it all out and share my experience.
So, stay tuned…
