I’ve just turned 36! Hooray. *Eeyore voice*
I really do not feel much difference between 35 and 36… yet. But yes, four more years to go and… Tada, the big four-o!
I know some women who get more aggressive skin interventions as they near or hit forty – Botox, chemical peels, collagen, prototype 37c (a powerful anti-wrinkle serum). But I think, if you have not been taking care of your skin, forty is probably a bit too late.
I cannot afford laser treatments for sunspots, so I am always religious with applying sunblock during daytime. I make sure it’s always minimum of SPF 15. When I go for a run and will surely sweat, I use a water-proof sunblock with SPF 50.
In the past year, I have been religious with eye creams too. I realized that the first signs of ageing show with sagging lids and those wrinkles under the eyes when one smiles. I used the Shu Uemura eye gel I won last year. Now that I finished that jar, I’m using the Ponds dual eye cream. I really hope they work.
In four years’ time, I’ll see if I will be needing more aggressive intervention. 😛
