Back to Basics

As I looked into my vanity before performing my nighttime regimen I began to wonder, when did skin care become so complicated?  A serum for this, moisturizer for that… the problems and solutions seem endless.

Thinking back to when I was really young, before my teenage years and didn’t have to worry about acne, anti-aging, hyperpigmentation and so on I remember using one product that took care of it all.  Pond’s. 

My grandmother always used Pond’s Cold Cream and still does and she has supple, fresh skin.  If she was able to use one simple product her whole life and ended up with great skin, why can’t I?  If it were only that simple!

I must say, I’m not so sure I’ll be able to stream line my medicine cabinet due to all of the new products and technologies I’m anxious to try, but I did get Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes for traveling.  They take off my makeup, cleanse and have antioxidants in them so I can leave my other billion products at home.  Going back to basics.
