Damn Old Lady Skin
As I mentioned on Facebook today, for 35 years I have not given a crap about my skin. I never wash it before bed, I'm always picking at it and I'm not even close to drinking enough water a day. Its my own fault I have lines around my eyes and that horrible wrinkle in between my eyes. I'm lucky I don't smoke or I would really be in trouble.
When I was a teenager my mom seemed to notice that I frowned all the time, thus making a little crinkle in between my eyes. She'd say, "You should stop frowning or you're going to get a deep wrinkle between your eyes." I would nod and then stick my tongue out at her when she turned around. At the time my mom didn't know anything, she certainly did not know when or where I would wrinkle.
Well it turns out she was right about the "little crinkle" and just about everything else. I hate her.
I was getting my Slutty Vixen on last week with Salon Sara and she told me about this new cream she has started using. Its called Nerium and is apparently the equivalent of little magic elves in a bottle turning back the hands of time. She showed me all these fabulous before and after pictures which, of course, I was incredibly skeptical about. Then she started telling me about the difference she has seen in her skin in just a couple of weeks of use. Smaller pores, help with uneven coloring, lines becoming thinner, etc etc. She gave me a bottle and asked me to use it for 10-12 days. I'm in.
I had to take a before picture which turned out to be tricky because you're not supposed to photo shop the before picture. I had to take like 14 pictures before I got the right angle so it doesn't look like I have 6 chins. I don't believe Nerium takes care of your multiple chin problems so why advertise it, right?
I've decided that if Nerium truly works I will start slatthering my whole body with it in hopes that it will tighten my ass, flatten my tummy, lift my boobs and make me less bitchy in the mornings.
