Mom's Skincare Secrets...with POND'S

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

My mom is the youngest of 9 siblings (and out of those 9, 6 are girls!) she has shared with me tons of beauty and skincare secrets she learned from her mom, from her big sisters, and well...over time. As soon as I started wearing makeup at 14, she said "NEVER, ever ever, go to sleep with your makeup on"...and I can proudly say that I've slept with makeup on just a few times in almost 13 years. I like using Wet Cleansing Towelettes, I keep them in my night stand and the Pond's towelettes remove my makeup so easily...that there are no excuses.

She also says that the early you start taking care of your skin, the better. If you start using a cream to prevent wrinkles when you already have them...well, it's a little late. She actually started taking care of her skin religiously after 30 and she says she regrets not starting earlier like one of my aunts(and my aunt looks SO SO amazingly at 63!). To start preventing wrinkles, I like the POND'S Rejuveness- it deeply moisturizes my skin (which is also very dry, even in the extreme Miami humidity). A small amount goes a long way; the texture is very nice and it absorbs into the skin quickly (making it light enough to use before foundation during the day!). My mom also always reminds me not to forget my neck when moisturizing. I feel like a lot of women use amazing creams on their face but they forget to apply it on the neck...and age can easily show on the neck (and hands!). Talking about hands, after applying your moisturizer to your face...take the excess and rub it on your hands! She would also use aloe vera on anything...scars, acne...and it really works wonders.

Mi mamá tiene 9 hermanos (y de 9, ¡¡6 son mujeres!!)...por lo que siempre ha compartido conmigo muchos trucos de belleza y cuidado de la piel que aprendió de su mamá, hermanas mayores...y bueno, con el tiempo. Apenas empecé a usar maquillaje a los 14 años, mi mamá me repitió la importancia de NUNCA pero NUNCA dormir con maquillaje. Y con mucho orgullo, puedo decir que solo he dormido con maquillaje un par de veces en casi 13 años. Mi manera favorita de remover el maquillaje es usando toallas húmedas- las cuales siempre tengo en mi mesita de noche. Me gustan muchos las de Pond's porque me remueven el maquillaje tan fácil...que no hay excusas.

También dice que es mejor prevenir que lamentar. Si empiezas a usar remitas anti-arrugas cuando ya tienes muchas arrugas, es más complicada. Ella admite que le hubiese gustado empezar a cuidar su piel antes de los 30, que fue cuando se puso seria con el cuidado de la piel. Tengo una tía que se cuidaba muchísimo desde muy joven y a sus 63 años se ve más regia que muchas mujeres de 43. Para empezar a prevenir las arrugas, me gusta la crema POND'S Rejuveness: hidrata perfectamente mi piel  (la cual es muy seca hasta en la humedad extrema de Miami). Solo tienes que aplicar un poco; y la piel la absorbe rápido...así que puedes usarla debajo de tu maquillaje sin problema durante el día. Mi mamá también dice que no podemos olvidarnos del cuello; muchas mujeres se cuidan muchísimo la cara pero no aplican nada al cuello... y luego tienen una cara perfecta con cuello arrugado. Dicen que uno puede saber la edad de una mujer con mirarle las manos y el cuello..por esto, después de aplicarla en la cara y cuello, frotarte las manos con el exceso que te quedó.

  1. My mom gave me the same advice when I had started wearing makeup. She started getting moisturizer for me when I was still really young and I can't thank her enough for it. Love this post! :)
