Many people have made a comment on my skin lately. Actually I’ve received six compliments on my skin in the past few weeks. As a woman past 60, it sure makes me feel good!
But the reason I say this is that I started using a coconut oil moisturizer on my skin and then apply a tinted moisturize on top of that. I use Aveeno but there are others in lots of price ranges. Aveeno is about $15 for their tinted version. It looks good and feels good. I was using the Philosophy brand but it’s about twice the price.
Living in the desert has taught me (at my age) that any “make-up” just sits in my wrinkles and it looks awful. I don’t care who makes it or how much it costs; it’s all the same when it comes to wrinkles.
So I started exploring what to do. My search led me to actively applying the coconut oil that I cook with to my face as an overnight moisturizer. To some I’m sure it sounds crazy, but it sure works; just make sure not to use too much. If you do, you can always blot some off.
The company where I buy my coconut oil is Tropical Traditions and they are simply a marvelous company. Their products are top-notch and their customer service is outstanding. Plus they give some great coupons for lots of their products.
Recently I found that they have coconut oil based moisturizers in lotion and in cream formulas. I got both and I am so hooked. And I love the fact that I don’t have to wear foundation anymore.
The other thing I like to do is start my day with positive messages. Here’s one of the sources I use: Enlightened Messages. They also have some pretty cool meditation downloads. Personally I do my best at meditation when it’s a guided one. Theirs are superb!
