The Best Thing I Love About My Skin: No Makeup Necessary

December 3, 2013 Reviewed by Marta 3 Comments

Whether you're on the lookout for the next holy grail anti-aging serum or testing a new face cream, it's easy to be blinded by what we don't like about our skin and the problems that we're trying to correct.  But, for a moment, forget all that.  Instead, ask yourself, "What's the best thing I love about my skin?" 

I'm comfortable being bare-skinned, sans makeup, which has really only been true since I started Truth In Aging. My skin is remarkably smoother, clearer, and firmer than it was before. This comfort in looking at myself "in the buff" has come down to two things. First off, I have a good understanding about my skin, and a thorough knowledge about how skincare ingredients work (and don't). Secondly, knowing my needs and how to have them met is incredibly empowering.

That said, whilst avoiding makeup is one thing, I'm not totally batty: I still steer clear of fluorescent lighting at all costs.

Now, I want to know: What do you love most about your skin?  Share your thoughts about your most cherished feature in the comments section below.

    I am thankful that I have stayed out of the sun over the years. My middle-aged skin remains wrinkle-free and plump. I don't have to do a lot of fixing, but Truth in Aging gives me the information I need to maintain what I've got and prevent future problems.

    Though pale-ish in winter, it tans as soon as the springtime sun so much as sneezes at me - no matter how much I wear a hat or sunscreen! It gets a nice golden olive tone, the 'Dutch Peasant tone' that is genetically in my family.

    I agree with you Marta, knowledge is the power to good skin. Know your needs and how to feed your skin. I also believe in beauty from inside out. Eating healthy also effects your skin. A good exercise routine, healthy diet and sunscreen are also key to good skin. I can say that I feel my skin is much better now than it was 10 years ago. I only wish I had all the knowledge and resources that are available today 10 years ago. But I am happy the way skin looks and feels now.
