About twenty years ago I was a stay at home mum with two toddlers who ran me wild. I was worn out and my skin took a hammering. Cleansing was a bar of soap and a flannel and moisturiser was a bit of Vaseline. I was also suffering from a mighty dose of eczema. Everything the doctor gave me turned me into a greasy mess and stunk of medicine. It was not my best look.
One morning, enjoying some peace, I watched This Morning. It was the days of Richard and July and their guest of the day was Joan Collins. I think she was late 60s and she looked stunning. Judy asked her what her secret was……. Nivea.
Next shopping trip I bought the biggest tub and my skin, although aged has never been the mess it was back then. I remember a few years later having a consultation at Clinique. The assistant remarked what good skin I had and what my regime was, as she tried to sell me £££££s of product. She nearly fell over when I answered ‘ Nivea’.
So ladies stop dreaming about one day owning a pot of Creme de la Mere and buy a pot of 99p Nivea, it’s not always great for the day as your make up can slide off but on these dry dry dry days slap it on. It is also a fantastic night cream.
