My Skin Care Regimen: Maintaining Glowing Skin In My 40’s

I do not consider myself a beauty blogger or skin care expert but…… if I were to show you all the beauty products I’ve amassed over the years you might think otherwise.  My skin care journey has been a tale of trial and error from the time I hit puberty and got my first pimple, and like most things in…
