Being that I am 76 and look younger, people are always asking me what I do. I do tons of things, such as lots of creams and facial products. Over the years I have tried many many different brands and types of skin care.

Of course cleansing and toning twice a day goes without saying, And now with the Clarisonic facial cleaning system, that too.

Now with the advent of serums and gels, there is a whole new bevy of beauty products. Modern technology has improved the science of skin care dramatically.

When I was a young girl it was Noxema and Clearasil. Ponds cold cream was just about it. And for hair it was Prell. The only conditioner I used until I was thirty five was vinegar in water. Now there are shampoo aisles in the drug store and if you want a face cream, there are whole departments for that.I shop at Sephora online and they are always sending me samples of new products.512VhQ9hB7L

I tried one today (Peter Thomas Roth CC cream skin corrector and sun screen)  and it was so terrific I am actually going to purchase this ASAP. The tube of 1.7 oz. is $48 at Sephora, but Amazon has the entire kit (with a .5 oz tube) at $70. There are four of the same line of products and since the CC cream is so terrific, the other three are probably good too.

I tried the sample card of shades. The light to medium looked very good and provided nice coverage. No makeup necessary. But the medium to tan was better for me. I look healthier and more natural. I have on no other makeup at all.

This product is sort of an all in one with a very high Vitamin C factor. The fruit it is made out of has 30X more vitamin C than an orange. (Guess if you were stranded on a desert island and had this with you, you could have it for breakfast)

So this is also a good treatment for skin and encourages collagen production.The first photo below is me with zero makeup or anything on my skin. Also before I lightened my hair.  Second photo is with application of a few dots of the CC cream blended in. The only other makeup I am ‘wearing’ is my permanent’ makeup. Tattoo eye brows, eye liner (top and bottom) and lips. As you can see, it is a much softer look and creases around mouth and eyes are blurred.Photo on 8-9-14 at 12.26 PMPhoto on 8-24-14 at 12.42 PM
