In My Beauty Bag. RoC Daily Moisturizer

Despite rumors and special effects photo's seen out of context on a few blogs several years ago from my album 'The Makeover', I have not had any facial plastic surgery. The concept of those photo's was in fact inspired by a layout from Italian VOGUE in July 0f 2005 called "Makeover Madness". The issue featured Linda Evangelista and was a satire on the lengths some women will go through to appear younger. I haven't even tried botox or any of the many fillers available either. Living in Los Angeles I see the stretched, pulled and overly plumped faces all the time. From my eyes it doesn't make anyone look younger, just 'different'.

What I have done is become somewhat of a moisturizer and anti-aging skin cream addict. I'm always trying new products. We all get older which is a blessing of course and rather than going nuts bemoaning the fact, I believe we can slow the down the wrinkle process by simply pampering our skin in addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

When choosing moisturizers, especially if you're over 40, Retinol (one of the animal forms of Vitamin A), Matrixyl 3000, Resveratrol (produced naturally by several plants) is something to look for as well as SPF and other essential minerals, fatty acids, and collagen. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
I'm currently using this daily moisturizer by RoC which was under $20.00 having just finished another by Chanel. I try them at all price points.

Thank you for this! I'm only 28, but old age is a looming fear of mine and something my close friend (aunt, and fellow Jody Watley fan) is currently coming to grips with as she crosses into her forties.

Glad you cleared that because I once heard you or read where you said something about how you wouldn't get plastic surgery but, I did see the Makeover Madness ad and i saw the lines drawn all over your face....... Yeah, I was like I guess she changed her mind! Lol.... But, Yaaaaaaaaay! You age beautifully and you're gorgeous to me.....with this positive beam of light that only enhances your beauty..... You'd never need that foolishness anyway
