We’ve all been there. You’re exhausted and unmotivated, dreading going through the motions of your skincare or beauty routine. Washing your face is the last thing on your mind, and putting on makeup before leaving the house? No thanks. It’s a common tune for women who are “beauty lazy” or just “too busy for beauty.” The good news is, there are simple solutions for taking care of your skin and making yourself look gorgeous without a whole lot of effort.

Athletes tend to be focused on meeting goals, crossing finish lines and winning the game. They’re driven, motivated, hardworking individuals who press boundaries to reap rewards. All the physical activity often hits their bodies hard, causing issues from achy muscles to blisters to dehydration. They have special skincare needs, too, and may need to care for their complexions a bit differently than others.
We’ve all been told a thing or two that we think is fact but in reality it is a rumor, a myth, a big fat lie. It happens. Your girlfriend hears it from her sister, who was told by a friend who saw it on TV, and it usually goes a little something like this: “So I just heard, you don’t have to wear sunscreen every day!” Yikes. Bad information can take you down a path you don’t want to go down, from bad food recommendations to an hour wasted watching some show your friend recommended. Sometimes fact and fiction just need to be separated.
Q: What is the best way to treat already-formed, deep wrinkles? Can topical products really help?
Licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy of MyChelle Dermaceuticals responds:
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging processes. As we get older, fine lines and wrinkles start to form on the skin, and the battle for a youthful appearance begins. As Mark Twain once said, “Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.” This is true; but we all get wrinkles, and they appear on the skin for a whole host of reasons.
Q. With fall just around the corner, what should I plan to do differently in my skincare routine?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wigggy replies:
It’s the in-between season where summer sun can still be scorching hot, yet the kids are back to school and fall is knocking on the door. Now is an ideal time for a complexion check. The summer months can be rough, with everything from increased UV exposure to higher humidity, harsh pool chemicals and even travel wreaking havoc on your skin. The wear and tear can really start to become noticeable this time of year.
In today’s fast-paced world we tend to get up and go, go, go. Downtime often doesn’t exist, which can make fitting in a consistent, healthy skincare routine tough. With the daily hustle and bustle, it’s not unusual for skin to become worn down and dull looking. That’s why it’s important, even when it seems you don’t have a minute to spare, to give your skin the attention it needs.
If only there were a real fountain of youth or magic wand that could instantly reverse skin aging. Ahhh, that’d be the life, wouldn’t it? Sadly, they just don’t exist. Bar none, the best strategy against fine lines, wrinkles and dull, aging skin is prevention—regardless of your age, it’s never too late! At MyChelle, we believe there’s beauty in aging and we’re all about embracing it—even if you have to wrangle with a wrinkle or two along the way.
