2023 – Time to Start a Routine
2023 is just around the corner! Do you have any goals for the New Year? Do you have skincare goals for the New Year? It’s a great time to start, and I promise you won’t regret it.
2023 marks 10 years since I began using Rodan+Fields and started a consistent skincare routine. And I couldn’t be happier!
Is my skin still aging? Of course!
Do I have age spots and sun spots? Yup!
Are some days better than others? Absolutely!
Is my brow still furrowed the way it was the day I was born? Indeed!
Do I still have the “Griffin bags” under my eyes? You bet!
Are some days really bad from allergies? Yeah, in all its glory!
However, my skin is also mostly vibrant, hydrated, firm, and aging more slowly. This photo was taken last month and has not been edited or photo-shopped. I don’t know what it would look like if I had not determined to take extra care of my skin, the largest organ on my body, for the last 10 years. But I think 52 would probably look a bit different than this.
And here’s what I found works best for me: building the best routine for my unique needs and sticking to it! And trust me, I have some unique needs and crazy skin. (This past post has more info about my skincare history.) You have to be consistent and do the work. There is a reason all those pretty bottles come with directions!
