Skin that looks as good as a Snapchat Filter.
Yeah, you read that right. I said that out loud, and now I can’t take it back. (I mean, I guess I could just not do it, but where’s the fun in that?)
You know exactly what I mean, and judging by the number of my fellow thirty-something closer to forty-something year old friends who post photos on Facebook and Instagram of them with Snapchat Filters, we’re in good company.
No matter how much of a mess I look, I know I can login to Snapchat and take a photo where I’m kinda ridiculously hot. I have about a .0000784% chance of ever learning to kill the makeup application that accompanies so many of the filters, but is it really about the makeup?
Nah. It’s all about the flawless skin! No one looks bad with a Snapchat filter. #Science
As part of this whole 37 Before 37 goal list I’m undertaking, I decided I should really learn how to take care of my skin and this face I have while it’s still aiiiight looking. I have forehead wrinkles now, I have crows feet and smile lines and eye bags and fat pads under my eyes. If I walked into a surgeons office, he’d have a field day with my face.
But really, that’s bananas. I have all of those things because I walk around smiling on a near constant basis. I’ve earned those things, man. And I’m not about to let some fictional surgeon I just made up take those away from me.
On the other hand, because well obviously, I’m also just a tiny little bit vain, and like, aren’t we all?
So when a bunch of my female friends of a similar age started going nuts over these K-Beauty Routines, I was all in. I had a gift card from Sephora for over a month that I somehow managed not to spend, and the lovely Skin Care Consultant managed to compliment me and say my skin wasn’t “That Bad” and I “have a great face to work with” (Pretty sure she was a VH1 level pick up artist and she totally negged me, but whatever, it worked! Haha!)
I’m about a week or so in, and I’m loving the results. My skin feels so soft, and is crazy hydrated and dewy looking.
I mean, hello?
I’m not going to cross this one off the list just yet, but dang, it’s doing wonders for my skin and my confidence.
I’d love to hear more about your skin care routine, and any products you absolutely recommend!
