No one wants to be wrinkly at the age of 33.
Yup, that’s how old I am right at this moment as I am sitting the other side of this blog post.
I really thought I would be a lot different – wiser maybe?
I guess I’ll have to wait until my 40’s for that to kick in?
Anyway back to wrinkles!
Luckily, I have pretty good skin genes and so don’t really look 33 at the moment (I even still get the sneaky double take off the checkout staff when buying cider for my partner..)
I may not look 33 but I definitely look over 18!
If you’re reading this blog post then very much like me you’re not into shoving poisonous chemicals into your face and being unable to move your forehead…
Anecdotally, I remember being in my history lesson at school (getting on 30 years ago…), and laughing at the stupidity of the Victorians for putting arsenic and botox on their faces to look younger…
I guess it’s true fads really do come back round again!
So, what can you do to keep your skin looking so super fresh you can get away with ‘loosing’ a few years on your driving licence?
- Lavender (T)
- Myrrh (T)
- Fennel (T)
- Dill (T)
- Geranium (T)
- Frankincense (T)
How do I use them?
To be honest I cheat a little and use my oil companies specialist anti-aging blend roll on… but inside is; frankincense, Hawaiian sandalwood, lavender, myrrh, helichrysum & rose. This does a little more than just fight wrinkles and also does a bit of UV protection, and supports my face from skin irritations (I used to get super dry patches around my eyes).
Plus I’m lazy.
If someone has already gone to the trouble to make a fab combo then I’m not gonna spend ages making my own!
The other thing I do is ‘wash’ my face with coconut oil morning and night. I scrape out a blob (I use the hard coconut oil for my face because I love the smell), onto a tissue and wipe my face with it. You wouldn’t believe the muck that comes off (especially as I spend 85% of my time behind a PC – and I do have a tidy home!).
I’m not using any harsh chemicals at all.
My face feels super soft and smells yummy.
Next I do a couple of dabs of the anti-ageing blend around the outside of my eyes and rub along the crease of my eyelids and underneath my eye (be careful not to get it in your eyes because it will hurt).
The past few weeks I have been getting comments that my skin looks great so I must be doing something right!
Happy wrinkling & catch you on Tuesday when I get close up to Eucalyptus essential oil.
