We all have them – beauty regrets. Maybe it’s a horrible home dye-job. Maybe it’s plucking your eyebrows into microscopically thin lines. Maybe it’s wearing dark eyeshadow all the way up to your brow-bone. Maybe it’s wearing frosty pink Barbie lipstick. By the way, I have done all of these AND much more!
But the one thing I am regretting the most lately is the fact that I never wore sunscreen on my hands and neck. I was always so good about covering my face year-round with sunscreen. Ever since I was around 22 I have been very careful about that. But somehow I managed to forget about my neck and hands, and now I am seeing the results of that. Especially in my hands. In fact if they aren’t lotioned up 100% of the time I feel like they look like 85 year old hands! I am greatly exaggerating that of course, but I really do feel like my hands give away my age more than my face does.
Luckily for us brands are FINALLY starting to realize that yes, we need SPF in hand creme. The ones I like and use are the most often lately from L’Occitane and Deborah Lippmann. I just read in a magazine that Jergens now has one too! I definitely want to try that since it’s much less expensive and easier to get than the ones I use now. I do wish it was SPF 35 though.
What are some of your beauty regrets?
