HIDE YOUR SKIN’S SECRETS
I met a very clever dermatologist a couple of months back. Well, all dermatologists are pretty clever in my books.
They’ve done quite a few more years at uni than I did doing my Arts degree and they have to have a head for science … not just a skill for choosing subjects that didn’t clash with watching Days of Our Lives.
Anyway, this particular dermatologist told us that she could immediately tell a person’s lifestyle and habits just by looking at their skin.
Which made me turn away immediately.
Did she know I’d only had five hours sleep the night before because I had to get up super early to catch a flight to hear her speak?
Did she know how many champagnes I’d consumed in the name of girly friendship last Friday night?
Did she know that I forgot to take my makeup off that one night two weeks ago?
Yes, my internal dialogue about my external appearance was working overtime.
But it got me to thinking.
Does your skin have a secret, something that would immediately give away what you’ve been doing … or haven’t been doing?
If so, would you like some easy solutions on how to disguise those secrets?
Secret 1: I don’t sleep well
I sleep well but I’m guilty of not giving myself enough time for sleeping. Particularly during the week and particularly if I’m in the middle of a damn good book. I can get up the next morning and do what I need to do in a day but if I’m to face the day (and the people in that day) looking halfway fresh and lovely, I need help. Specifically help around the eye area. I need a product that de-puffs and energises. It gets bonus points if it can work on a few wrinkles while it’s sitting there.

Secret 2: I love my wine
Forgive me, skin but I do love a vino or two. I try to be good Monday to Thursday and do that weekends-only rule but sometimes it’s just not possible. I know that no amount of water chasers can make up for the hydration suck that alcohol causes and I know that this is quite clearly evident in my skin so in times of need I reach for a power hydrating moisturiser, something I also use on long-haul flights.
