Time Flies When You Don't Moisturize!

Its funny how you look up and realize you aren’t a kid anymore. I know I am no longer the youngest or the thinnest girl in the room, but at least I can still be cute and young looking. I have always been devoted to moisturizer, even as a kid. I used to use the regular pink Oil of Olay at like 12 and 13 just because I saw my mom use it so much. I don’t think it had any SPF back then, and frankly my use of it was just pointless but it started a very good habit.

These days I only use Cetaphil moisturizer. It’s the only one that doesn’t break me out, and my skin is soft and oil free all day. Its SPF 15, so I don’t have to worry so much about sun damage. I am religious about my moisture and every day that I think I might forget, one look in the mirror tells me I won’t have another “today” to moisturize and prevent wrinkles or damage. Once you walk out that door, its one day down that you could have done something, and god knows I don’t want that to bite me in the ass 10 years later. I dont want to wake up looking like the Crypt Keeper and neither do you, so get thee to a bottle of something that will keep you looking like Joy Bryant, and not Bryant Gumble.

i cannot leave my house without applying moisturiser for fear of having those scornful faces from fellow black neighbours... i can almost read their minds when they see me when I'm in a rush and they are silently screaming ''treat those ashy hands!''

makeupgirl - I totally agree, I will never get more so I better be careful.

nichelle - Its one of the only things I can use. Everything else makes me like an oil slick or breaks me out.

aulelia - You know we have to take special care with our skin. If we dont we will look crazy and ashy like a Dave Chappelle skit.
