Taking care of my skin is something I've tried to do from in my teens, and med school in Cuba meant constant sun exposure, so I'm always using face creams with SPF 15 at least. But this is different, this isn't preventative anymore. So I'm embarking on a new regimen. That eye cream that's been languishing on the side has been pulled out, and added to some new purchases. And it was fun going through everything in the skin care aisle at the pharmacy.
So whereas before I saw a serum as something to buy for my mom, I'm adding it to my daily routine, along with a gel moisturiser and an oil on top of that on my dry-prone chin. I still have my regular SPF Olay complete moisturiser for daytime and an Olay night time cream that I've been using for months and just realised it says 'firming'. So that's why my skin feels taut and a bit dry when I use it... Anyway, I'll be trying to alternate it with the gel, depending on the weather. Fingers crossed that it works.
