Peeptoe Pumps & Pearls


Jill over at http://peeptoepumpsandpearls.blogspot.com/ has recently posted a "give away" at an opportunity to win a bottle of Perricone MD cold plasma (retail $150). I couldn't be more excited about this offer. I didn't realize that we had something HUGE in common, skincare!!! Yes, I'm obsessed with skincare. Not only am I obsessed with my own skin but my husbands too. I'm constantly chasing him around the house trying to lather skin products/sunscreen to his beautiful skin (he hates it). I will probably be one of those insane mother's that has my babies in hats, sunglasses, and tons of sunscreen.

Where did this obsession begin? When I was in high school I worked for a Dermatologist. The horrible stories I would hear scared me enough to stay out of the sun. I wear lots of hats and light weight cotton shirts during the summer. I try to avoid certain hours to be out of the direct sunlight. And I'm constantly applying lotions/oils to my face when I'm home. I try to not apply make-up on the days I know I won't be running around. And I wash my face twice a day no matter how exhausted I am. You wouldn't believe how many women do not wash their make up off!!! I also believe that a healthy diet is important too. However, the best skincare tip I've learned over the years is a healthy lifestyle.

If you get an opportunity please stop by to see Jill. You'll absolutely love her blog.

Thanks for posting about this, Gigi. That's so funny you obsessed with skincare too! I get so mad when I see someone close to me with a sunburn. What are they thinking???

Yes, I know what you mean. I also cringe at the thought of sunbathing and tanning salons. I've been preaching on my soap box for years. However, I we aren't the only ones. I read an article that Nicole Kidman is also obsessed with skincare and staying out of the sun. She has beautiful skin!!!
