If I were ready to disclose my age, which will happen someday, but with much build up and fanfare, and, if I had no concerns about revealing my beautiful face, I would be able to supplement my testimony with better evidence.
Some genius part of me was awakened at the age of 20. It hit me—moisturize, now! But, what about zits, you say? Won’t lotions on my face make me break out?
This is where we really cross the Rubicon.
Zits don’t matter! They go away! Wrinkles are forever!
Soon enough, I would find out that decent moisturizers don’t cause zits. Clearasil made one.
Then there was the thing with the eye cream, the holiest of holy grails. The search for the perfect eye cream is looking like a lifetime journey. I can still remember my First Time. I bought Physicians Formula, so wise, so young. Go for the hypoallergenics.
Thus, I spent decades with goopy stuff around my eyes at all times. My preference was always gloopy, gloppy, industrial strength eye cream.
Decades later, I’m reaping the rewards. Full disclosure: I have been doing Botox, now Dysport for many years. That helps with the crow’s feet, but nothing is done under my eyes or elsewhere in the eye area.
It works, Bees. I get many compliments and look considerably younger than I am. You don’t have to approach the whole thing with religious fervor similar to mine. But, if you use eye cream consistently enough, and stay out of the sun, you will thank yourself one day.
Btw, after trying every single eye cream ever marketed, I’m using a retinol one from amazon that’s effective and $12. It’s called Argabelle.
