Beauty: How to get gorgeous skin.

A really, really long time ago, I posted this article listing my New Year’s vows.
I know.  That was so long ago that you thought I forgot about it.  Well, I didn’t!

One of my vows was to moisturize more often.
It’s important to moisturize because it gives you vibrant, healthy, and soft skin.
Pet Peeve:  I hate having overly moist skin that feels almost greasy.  Bleh, gag, barf!

I tried everything to fulfill this vow.
The decent moisturizers were very expensive or left behind some sort of nasty residue.
The spray on moisturizers get everywhere, don’t soak well into the skin, and stain your clothes.
Moisturizing soaps give me itchy skin rashes that I really would prefer to avoid.
Jax got upset thinking she was doomed to have horrible skin now and as she ages.

About two months back, while browsing through a magazine, I found a solution!
Catherine Zeta Jones was asked during an interview for her beauty secrets.
To sum it up, she covers herself in body oil from head to toe and then lets her skin absorb it.
While I’d love to run around oiled up and naked, I’m not sure Mushy would like that…

Ever since that day, after washing my body with sensitive skin soap, I oil up!
I use a generous amount of baby oil and rub it into my skin while standing in the shower.
Afterwards, I rinse off the excess baby oil and then wrap (not rub) the towel around me.
Another article suggested that people air dry instead of irritating their skin using a towel.

Ladies and gentleman, two months later and I have to say it really works.
My skin has never looked or felt this good in my entire life.
Not to mention, baby oil is budget friendly and such a common item!
I never skip a day and I hope that my skin thanks me for it in the years to come.
…and Jax thought she was doomed…

What are your beauty secrets for your skin?

    2. Hahahaha Pat...you made me crack up with that one. Poor Mushy would be scared for life. She'd probably never be able to cook with olive oil because of the memories of her childhood. Hahaha

  3. that's a good idea, I would have to do it before bed tho bc I think oil under foundation would make for lots of shine, lol.

    1. coconut oil works great, too...but baby oil is the least expensive way.

      Delete
    2. Really? Does that mean you read the Catherine Zeta Jones interview also? Hehe

      I love coconut oil and I put it in my hair daily. But you are right, it is expensive. I'll keep the baby oil for my legs until my next raise. :)

    3. I put coconut oil on the ends of my hair! Great minds....

  7. You know the ancient Romans used oils to clean up because they didn't have soap. The Arabs are the ones who came up with soap... I think. At least that is my understanding. Ahh well, I would never be dedicated enough to oil up from head to toe. Besides Katherine Zeta Jones probably has servants, slaves, and oompa loompas that oil her up while she just lies there or something.
