07.29.2017 || I Have My Mother's Face: A Tale of Two Skincare Regimens
I've had a few people reach out to me via YouTube asking if I could make a video about my skincare regimen. As someone with acne-prone oily skin I was a little apprehensive and frankly self-conscious about it. I've always struggled with acne since puberty and I didn't want the focus to be completely on me.
I recently looked into the analytics of my channel and realized that most women that follow me are actually older than me. So, I reached out to my mother to see if she would do the video with me.
Her and I are very similar physically, a lot of my family refers to me as "little Linda" (that's her name -- Linda) because I look so much like her. Even though we share a lot of traits we do not have the same skin type. She also made me aware of the changes she was working through now as a woman approaching 60 with menopause. I didn't realize that it could affect your skin.
Check out the video to see our full regimens and if you're interested in any of the products, links are below.
