COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS OF ANTI-AGING PRODUCTS

COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS OF ANTI-AGING PRODUCTS

I think the most common misconception of anti-aging products is when to start using them. Often I hear people say they don’t need anti-aging products because they don’t have wrinkles yet. I try to explain to them the best time to start using these products is before there are any signs of aging.

WHAT I DO FOR SELF-CARE

WHAT I DO FOR SELF-CARE

Every mom with more experience than you will tell you "me time" is absolutely necessary.

I never really had "me time" before Grace was born because I was never really one to pamper myself. I always had a job and a side business so that didn't leave a lot of time for anything else. At the most, I would get a hair cut at the beginning of wedding season and a pedicure if I had planned in advance to wear sandals when working a wedding. (Rarely the case.)

AGING GRACEFULLY - MAKEUP ROUTINE

AGING GRACEFULLY - MAKEUP ROUTINE

My focus has always been on skincare, not makeup. I always used some makeup but didn't really know how to apply it until I was on maternity leave and spent a lot of time on youtube while breastfeeding or pumping in the middle of the night. Two of my favorite youtube stars are (of course) Michelle Phan and Lindy of Bubzbeauty.

WHAT I DID TO DEVELOP MY DAUGHTER'S LITERACY SKILLS

WHAT I DID TO DEVELOP MY DAUGHTER'S LITERACY SKILLS

One day, Grace came up to me and said; "Mommy, I'm a chatterbox." I responded with "Yes, you are." Then I thought, where did she learn the word chatterbox?!

At just over two years old, Grace started putting together 11-12 word sentences. I thought this was normal until everyone told me that she is really advanced for her age and she really knows a lot of words. I did some research and learned at two years old, most children know about 200 words and puts together 2-3 word sentences. Whoa. She does 11-12 word sentences and knows at least 400 words. That is when I knew Grace was really advanced with her literacy.

AGING GRACEFULLY - BEAUTY SLEEP

AGING GRACEFULLY - BEAUTY SLEEP

You all heard the term before "beauty sleep" but how many of you actually embrace it? I honestly would love to sleep the hours a baby or toddler does. I love sleeping and it has been one of my most guarded things that I do. I can give up on chips and bacon, internet, and even Netflix for some solid hours of sleep.

AGING GRACEFULLY - MULTI-TASK PRODUCTS FOR BUSY MOMS

AGING GRACEFULLY - MULTI-TASK PRODUCTS FOR BUSY MOMS

I have always been a multi-tasker but after I became a mom, I really had to kick this multi-tasking thing in high gear! I realized I now have less time in general and most of it was used on someone that needs a lot of attention and assistance with every aspect of her life. A couple of times, I ran out to run errands with Grace and she got a lot of complements on how cute she looked in her outfit. I didn’t get any because I looked like crap. I had 25 minutes to get out the door and 20 of it was used on her.

AGING GRACEFULLY - SKINCARE DURING THE HOLIDAYS

With the holidays upon us, going to a couple of parties is inevitable. Regardless of the party you throw or attend, there are some similar things that will happen to all of us:

  • We will get less sleep (unless you can make it up the next day);

  • We will look a little haggard; and

  • We will be too tired to follow our usual skincare routine.

AGING GRACEFULLY - ANTI-AGING ROUTINE

When I tell people about my fears of aging, they usually respond with "Oh, you have nothing to worry about, you are Asian and you will still look young when you get old." Flattering, Somewhat. But let's not just sit back and rely on my Asian genes.
