30 y.o. skin

Ok, this is my first “about 30” post. I turned 30 in June and its been pretty much the same as 29. I get carded sometimes, sometimes I don’t. Even though I’m not “in my 20’s” anymore, life hasn’t stopped. I’m pretty ok with where I am in life but not overly thrilled with my weight and fitness level – so changing that by 31 is a goal, in addition to finishing my thesis. Other than that, whatever.

However, the one thing I don’t like about being 30- for the first time in my life, I have to wear face makeup nearly every day (foundation, powder, etc). Of course, I’ve worn it before, but usually only on special occasions or when I had 2+ blemishes. It might have looked a little bit better than without, but it wasn’t needed. But, I noticed as the days crept closer to 30, that my skin wasn’t quite as nice as it used to be – my pores show, skin color isn’t as even, etc. Boo hiss! When I shared this with a friend, she was less than sympathetic so perhaps I’m being a baby. Its not a big deal to put it on – its an extra 2-3 minutes in my morning routine and I use mineral face makeup and its easy and looks good and isn’t heavy….it just “bums me out” that I have to wear it, that’s all.
