Skin Care in Your 40s

Thank you for all your kind comments on my self portraits.  I will admit I've always been more about skin care than wearing lots of makeup. My skin care has evolved over the years.  When I was a teenager, I used Ivory soap to wash my face and Bonne Bell toner my mom advised me to use (Thanks, Mom!).  When I was in college, I started using Clinique soap, toner and moisturizer.  This was the first time I ever used moisturizer.  When I was in my 30s, I started using Mary Kay skincare.  I still use their day solution that has sunscreen in it and Phoebe uses their Velocity line of skincare, which is for younger girls. 

Today, I'm in my 40s and I've noticed my skin has gotten noticably drier.  It's awful.  So I've switched up the skin care again and I've been going to Sephora.  I found the Kate Sommerville products and I love them.  Here are my current favorites:

I start with the Quench Hydrating Face Serum


Then I use the Deep Tissue Repair Cream


And then for under my eyes, I use the Line Release Under Eye Cream

I know these get expensive, but a little goes a long way, and even though I had the other plastic surgery done, I'm really not interested in getting anything done to my face, so I'm trying to make it look as good as long as possible.  Thank goodness I didn't need any of these products when I was in my 30s though!  I do miss the good old simple Ivory soap days!
