My Skin Care Journey

How it began

Growing up I was the youngest of 4 children and my only sister was 10 years older than me.  Of course this meant everything she was doing in her teens had a huge impact on me as a child.  So when she used skin care products and makeup like all girls her age did, I pretty much thought,’ this is for me too’! Thus by around 11 or 12 years old I had begun using cleansers, astringents (toners were called that back then) and moisturizers.  Did I need to? Of course not but the best thing about all this was I began life long habits that certainly impacted how I cared for my skin for the rest of my life.

When Should you start caring for your skin

I can’t remember the exact age but long before the internet I read about these beautiful natural products in a girls magazine.  You might remember the one we all read back then in Australia ‘Dolly Magazine’.  Yeah, it was every girls favourite. The products were Yve Rocher.  Do you remember them? Don’t forget because they are still with us today. Now that’s saying something.  As I was creating this site I felt it appropriate to give them another go.  I love what I use now but to be fair not everyone will want/or can spend  on their skin. So I thought I might give them a whirl and see what they are like by today’s standards.  I must admit I was pleasantly surprised when the box showed up.  These products are still lovely especially for the price tag.

My kids have grown up but I will encourage my grand daughter when the time comes to begin caring for her skin before she is a teenager.  She already wears her Mums makeup.  So I think this box of goodies I’ve just bought from Yves Rocher will be just the thing for when she is old enough to begin a skin care routine.

Skin care for over 50’s is more than skin deep

Between then (when I was 12 years old) and now I have tried so many different products ranging from inexpensive ones which are pretty much just Sorbolene to really expensive products from the David Jones skin care department.  There have been a few lovely ones but the nothing compares to the results I have seen by using Neora products.  My skin is smoother, there is less pigmentation and the reduction of wrinkles and sagging is astounding.  To top it off there is no injecting and its simple to use. Of course this is not just about products as you know. Caring for your skin requires good diet, exercise, loosing extra pounds and a healthy mind and body.
