I just realized that since I’ve been home on medical leave (five years now!) I haven’t really been taking care of my skin like I used to. By this I mean, when I was working I’d spend some time each morning (or afternoon or evening depending upon my nursing shift) caring for my skin.
I’d always put moisturizer on under and then before bed I’d put a little bit of moisturizer on my skin as well. Usually a cream specifically for night time use.
I haven’t been doing that since I’ve been stuck at home. Oh sure, I put moisturizer on occasionally, but not every day like I used to.
Why am I thinking about this now? Well I’ve noticed that my skin is kind of dry and well .. I think all those olay regenerist reviews in the magazines that I read are getting to me. LOL maybe they’re doing some kind of subliminal advertising?
Starting this evening I’m going to start putting moisturizer on my skin more regularly. Hey, I’m getting older – gotta protect the skin! Good thing I have good genes! Everyone says I look at least 10 years younger than I am (real problem when I was in my 20’s!) and so do my brothers and my sister. So it’s not too late!
Now if only I could sleep better! I’m sure that would help too.
