My Pre-Holiday Beauty Regimen – How I’m Getting My Skin Ready

I’m using RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream to get my skin ready for the holidays as part of a sponsored campaign with SocialStars.  #RoCRetinolResolution #WomenWhoRoC

Do you start to panic this time of year? I know I do.  There is so much to do and the holidays will be here before you know it.  That means a lot of things including picture time and seeing family and friends you may not have seen in a while.  For me it also means the celebration of my wedding anniversary.  Working on getting rid of the deep wrinkles aroun my mouth and nose with RoC Night Cream cupcakesandcrinoline.comFor a few years now I have hated looking in the mirror because I’ve looked so tired and the once not so deep lines around my mouth now seem to be deepening.  Skin care and keeping myself looking good have always been important to me but over the last few years I have been dealing with an illness in the family that has left little time for taking care of myself like I once had.  Black crinoline and lace dress for holiday celebrations cupcakesandcrinoline.comLate nights, early mornings and days far too full of things to do meant that applying skin cream and doing daily facial exercises wasn’t something I had kept up with.  I also found myself eating from stress (UGH).  Thankfully, things are finally (YAY) taking a turn for the better and I want to be ready for the busy, hectic but wonderful days ahead and this year it looks like my husband and I may actually be celebrating our anniversary for the first time in over 5 years and I want to look good for it!  I even have a dress picked out (with crinoline of course) that I hope to fit into again (fingers crossed!).  

Getting my skin holiday ready with RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, Eva Fraser's Facial Wrokout and an electric facial toning system cupcakesandcrinoline.comTo get ready I pulled out my favorite facial exercise book (used and out of print but a goodie), a facial toning machine (I take this stuff very seriously) and RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream.  In 4 weeks I should start to notice a much desired change for the better especially with the addition of RoC Retinol Night Cream to my repertoire.  It’s 2x stronger than imitators, goes on like a silky dream with no tugging or pulling and leaves your skin feeling refreshed.  Its main ingredient includes retinol which is the #1 dermatologist recommended anti-aging ingredient.  Pre-holiday beauty regimen and skin care advice from cupcakesandcrinoline.comMy hope is that my laugh lines – inherited from my Mom – will be less deep and my cheeks a little more plump.  I can’t wait to update you all.  Next up – some lifestyle changes regarding my eating…tight crinoline is not good! 😉 

How do you get your skin ready for the holidays? I’d love to dish about it!

There's nothing wrong with helping mother nature along a little! Although you certainly don't have to worry since you're gorgeous!

Just those glimpses you give us of your pretty face tell us how gorgeous you are. Lines or not. I understand how stress ages the face.... my face has greatly aged in a brief time. It's down right scary to look in the mirror. LOL I must have been living under a stone because I went to charm school as a teen but I never learned about facial exercises. Then again... if it isn't walking...which I can do for miles... I don't do much exercise. LOL Oh well! Glad to learn about the new facial product. I'll be anxious to hear how you like it. {{hugs}}

Thanks so much, Diane! The RoC cream is awesome and so are the facial exercises. Stress does age you (STRESS STINKS) but I can't imagine you looking anything but beautiful. hugs, mb
