Well my friends today I’m at the ALT Design Summit Conference in Salt Lake City as a first time attendee and so far the experience has been great. I’m excited to meet and make new friends and contacts while I’m in town. My sister also relocated here last year so I get a chance to celebrate her birthday with her this weekend. She warned me before I came to town, "this is not California, this is a mountain climate, and it is cold! Bring your warmest jacket, drink lots of water, and remember to moisturize!"
I hate to say the words (plug your ears sis) but my sister was totally right. My skin already feels very dry but I’m also in denial about a little thing called the aging process. :) I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m turning forty this year, yes me, forty! It always reminds me of that line in When Harry Met Sally when Meg Ryan has her meltdown and when she says through tears "But I’m going to be forty….someday!"
It’s taken me a few years to settle on the moisturizers I like best and my favorites vary by day and by season. Spring and summer I’m focused on sunscreen and in winter or dry climates like this one, it’s all about extra moisture. Here are my faves:
For daytime: Ole Henriksen Truth Crème Advanced Hydration – light texture, citrus scent, my favorite in the morning, especially in winter. I also use Burt’s Bees Radiance Day Cream from my local pharmacy.
For nighttime: Mario Badescu Caviar Night Cream – thick and creamy and wonderful, I love this one at night before I go to bed. It reminds me of Crème de la Mer, but much more affordable, I’ve been using this for over a year.
For pep: I love love love Ole Henrickson’s Sheer Transformation, it’s lightweight and silky and perfect for right out of the shower and in summertime too.
So tell me friends, what is your favorite facial moisturizer for your age or skin type that you swear by?
*not perked or paid, I just love the stuff! Over and out.
