The Sisters Top 6 Skin Care Essentials

I have laugh lines on my laugh lines, thanks to all you funny bitches. If I gotta sport a few wrinkles, at least they’re happy ones. I have a deep furrow between my brows I fondly call my husband line. My freckles, creases, puckers, and pleats are gentle battle scars in the war against time.

Dry, thinning skin is the skank of our aging evolution. Adios estrogen! Our skin changes substantially in our 40’s and 50’s, and so should our skin care products. Anti-aging formulas (or hope in a jar) can’t reverse all the signs of fermentation, but it can dramatically improve the tone and texture of our resting bitch face.

We’re often asked what can be used to combat age spots, and dull, dry skin. Drugstore products are perfectly acceptable when you’re younger, but now’s the time to make an investment in your face. If you find yourself laughing on the inside just so you don’t wrinkle outside, this one’s for you.

We’ve featured the dermatologist developed product line Revoderm (www.revoderm.com) in all our recommendations, because we love it and I’m a suck-up to my boss! We noticed a visible healthy glow to our skin within two weeks, and they offer free shipping anywhere in Canada.

2. Retinol

Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. It’s best to start slow when introducing this product, as not everyone’s skin will tolerate it on a regular basis.
