...or is that regime? ;-)
One thing that I've been into lately is skin care. Completely into it. I've been using drugstore brands for EVER, and I'm very happy with those. But, I decided a few months ago to try some new stuff. There is a brand called M Asam (on HSN) that I LOVE... absolutely love the eye cream. I've never been able to find an eye cream that can really be used around the eyes. This one is amazing. I've noticed a difference, even. There are a couple other spots that I wanted to target that seem to look better too. :) They also offer a fantastic hand cream that has done great things for my hands this winter. (in conjunction with the Eucerin Hand Creme). I've found that it must be hand cream, though, not lotion or any other kind of concoction.
Sis got me a new kit for Christmas that I love! Believe it or not, it is the Cindy Crawford kit. I used the face mask last night and it was awesome. Not too drying. The eye cream is amazing, too. And I really like the morning and night cream. It might be a keeper. :)
One that I tried recently was Wei East. It wasn't good for me. NOT because I didn't like the products. I did! I really liked the face serum, especially. But for some reason I was allergic to the face stuff... the lotions and maybe even the serum. :( booh.
So, a question I've been mulling over... can you be 'green' and still have great skincare? Probably. Am I there yet? No. I'm not using witch hazel. I'm not going without my store-bought products that are manufactured. But, I *am* taking care of myself. And that is pretty well equal in my mind in order of importance. That is just for me, though. :) Hence, the new regime. It's called... this is the year of Melissa trying to figure out what is good for Melissa. If that makes me selfish, then so be it. But I would say that God wants us to consider ourselves, as well as everyone else. And that does not make us selfish. Love your neighbor AS YOURSELF. If you don't know what it is to truly love yourself, you can't love your neighbor.
PS. I think I like the new haircut. Still a few more days to really know, but so far so good. lol
