So this aging thing is happening. Every 9 years or so (according to my precise calculations), little age-ee things are sneaking up on me. At this 9 year juncture, it’s the grays. When did they become so many? I look away for 2 minutes and more of the family immigrate to the sides of my head! I now refer to them ONLY by their glamorous stage name though: platinum highlights. Immediately relieving right?
They’re coming in fast and furious, and they don’t seem to discriminate, they’re attacking hair EVERYwhere! Not to get too graphic, but if you’re platinum-ing, you might want to inspect literally EVERYwhere that hair grows (Look down! It’s a tad alarming!). I can’t currently color my hair, so I’m embracing the gray invaders fully, but let me tell you, if they start to take over in that “you look older than you are” way, I’m sacrificing potential baldness for some hair color!
After the platinum strands, my curiosity extends to the eye area, and it’s supreme protector, eye cream. My current mini eye cream obsession is because my friend is convinced that she needs some, so why wouldn’t I go peering in the mirror to examine if I need it too? For feedback, I asked my other (older) friend if she uses eye cream, and she laughed (unnecessarily gutturally) in my face; because black don’t crack, and what not.
But still. After in-depth analyzing my eye area looks…like NOT 10 years ago; it’s softer, and darker, and wrinkly-ish (mostly when I chuckle and make faces). It’s probably the pile up from not sleeping consistently well for the last forever years with kids that’s rearing its potential eye cream needing self. All I know is that I don’t want to look back in 9 years and think that I should’ve deployed the eye cream army now! So just in case, I’m activating an eye cream squad for prevention of a possible elderly attack on my future skin.
So far I’ve tried one cream that did nothing magical. Thus, I’m researching. I’ll report back here in a few weeks with my eye cream thesis. In the meanwhile, if you’ve tackled this already please mention your eye creams below (in the comment section) for me and my girlfriends to try. It would be greatly eye-ppreciated!
I’ve decided to tackle this aging thing glamorously (OF course)! Mu current plan = accept it, find some amazing eye cream potions, find out what face serum is (this is a thing!) and how to use it, and keep our faces and bodies radiating!
