Hello, sweet friend! And welcome to Dressed for My Day. Today I’m turning our attention to skincare. Indeed, true beauty begins even deeper than the skin. But at our age we know the importance that effective skincare plays in keeping us radiant and youthful. I’ve always been one to cleanse and moisturize my face daily, but recently I added L’Oreal Midnight Serum to my skincare regimen. Let me tell you why.

Ever wonder what all the fuss is about skincare serums? Me, too! So I did a little research. It turns out a serum, when it comes to skincare, is a light, fast-absorbing liquid used as an alternative to or in addition to lotions or creams. One of the main differences between a serum and the other creams you may already use on your face is what it doesn’t include.
Serums don’t contain the extra fluids and thickening agents that creams and lotions have. And they don’t contain things like UV protection. You probably already use products that protect your skin and add emollients. Instead, serums are a high concentration of active, potent ingredients that significantly aid your skin in cell growth and regeneration, things like antioxidants, vitamins and peptides.
As I’ve gotten into my mid-50s I’ve become increasingly aware of how quickly my skin is changing. Left to its own natural inclination, after years of exposure to sun and the grime of life as well as stress, my skin had become less elastic, more splotchy and duller. And of course I’ve developed wrinkles around my eyes and mouth as well as across my forehead and on my neck. Sure, that’s life! I honestly don’t mind getting older. And I know I won’t look the same in my latter years as I did in the “prime of life.” This decision is not about trying to look like my twenty-something year-old daughter.
But as I learned that there absolutely is something I can do to help my skin look brighter, more elastic and more healthy, I knew I wanted to invest in a skincare serum. They can be pricey, but generally a small amount of a potent serum goes a long way. So a one ounce bottle can last quite a while. And an effective serum can pack a powerful punch.
Yes, this is a sponsored post. Walmart introduced me to the L’Oreal Midnight Serum. But I’m sticking with this product because I like the results. I can understand why it was preferred to the number one luxury brand night serum in a head to head consumer preference study of 350 women.
The L’Oreal Age Cell Perfect Renewal Midnight Serum is formulated with an exclusive Antioxidant Recovery Complex that works at night when skin reaches its peak of cell renewal. With regular application this complex of a patented antioxidant and Vitamin E reveals millions of new cells for visibly smoother, more radiant and youthful looking skin. The complex also includes Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful hydrating ingredient that helps lock in moisture.
After just four weeks of nightly use I’ve noticed the wrinkles between my brows are less pronounced, my skin looks dewier and more elastic and my makeup goes on more smoothly and wears more evenly. I’ve also noticed that my skin looks brighter, less dull.
The L’Oreal Age Cell Perfect Renewal Midnight Serum is effective on all skin types and is also safe on sensitive skin. It’s dermatologist approved, allergy tested, paraben free and mineral oil free. A small drop of the golden liquid is all you need with each use, and it’s fast absorbing, not greasy or sticky. And isn’t the bottle even pretty!
I’ve been using the L’Oreal Age Cell Perfect Renewal Midnight Serum with L’Oreal’s Eye Makeup Remover, Age Perfect Cream Cleanser and Age Perfect Rosy Tone Cooling Night Moisturizer. But the beauty of a serum like the L’Oreal Midnight Serum is that you can add it to whatever skincare products you’re using and it will be beneficial. The serum is under $35 and available at Walmart and Walmart.com. Check out all of the L’Oreal products offered at Walmart HERE.

Anger is a secondary emotion. It springs forth when we have other attitudes or emotions we have not properly dealt with. For me, I’ve noticed my anger generally builds when I have not dealt with feelings of jealousy, self-pity, sadness or rejection. I also sometimes sense anger growing when I feel like I’ve lost control of my circumstances.
But anger, once it has begun to simmer, brings further destruction, not healing. Once we have allowed other unhindered emotions to give birth to anger, it rules like a tyrant. It causes us to act in ways that are otherwise out of character. We can end up destroying relationships, opportunities and growth. Let’s carefully examine our lives to see where we are angry and why. And let’s confess that anger to the Lord and ask Him to heal it before it destroys.
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil. ~ Ephesians 4:26-27
