So You Think You Are Too Young For Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips?
Yeah. You. Not anywhere near 50? Well, I suggest you pay attention. Because time has a way of flitting by. Like that. (imagine snapped fingers) And when you are 50, you will have wished you had payed better attention. So, I am going to give you the wisdom of experience. Mine. Oh, and LaVerne's.
I am happy to report that I have aged well, and I thank my mom for it. Not only for her genes, but her wisdom. For example, she told me not to go join my friends when they were basking in the sun with baby oil slathered on their bodies. (C'mom now, show your age, give me a show of hands if you remember that trend!) I did still join my friends, but I wore sunscreen; by the way, we did not have the vitamin D issue we do today, and that one is for another post on another day. She told me a few other things as well. Some I listened to; some I did not. Hey, I was a teenager after all.
However, the advice about skin, I did pay attention to. Because my mom's skin was gorgeous. To the day she died, at the young age of 83, she was absolutely stunning. Slightly nutty too, (yet again, a post for another day). However, her skin was radiant. The other residents in her lovely senior home used to say "Oh, that LaVerne, she just adds class to the joint." So, here are few tips from myself, and my mom, LaVerne.
