Sunscreen? Bahhhh

The sun has really done me bad, these last three years of sun wind and dust has left my skin dry and discolored. Didn’t bother me til now. Refusing sunscreen was just stupid not using gloves to garden was another mistake. Too late to remedy? Maybe, but I’ll give it a try. I’ve been checking out those Utube videos on over 50 skin care and makeup and have learned a few things. Made a trip to Walmart to look for some recommended creams and such but doubt I have the right stuff for my skin but I’ll try them out over the next weeks.

One video that really surprised me was on dermaplaning your face! Which really means shaving your face, all over to get rid of peach fuzz on your face, says it exfoliates and smoothes the skin.. I bought theFlawless dermaplane glo exfoliador and hair removal at Walmart for 16.00 they didn’t have the little razors I saw on the video. I’ll try it, lord knows I need some care, eyebrows can be done this way too so no more plucking, though to be honest I have less need to pluck my eyebrows than to pluck my chin!

……….another I watched was on using the Chinese facial tool, gua sha to decrease fluid buildup of the face and neck. It’s simply moving excess lymph fluid but I thought a spoon would do the job and put two silver spoons in a glass of cold water and gently massaged the skin around my eyes and cheeks on one side of my face and the crease between my nose and mouth . It made a visible difference that lasted all day! I looked like I’d had a stroke, not really but next time I’ll do both sides of my face. Still had bags under my eyes but maybe less, I’ll try it again in the morning.

I’ll admit that I ordered the tool anyway.
