My Beauty routine 3 steps, 5 minutes

looking perfectly presentable for 99 years OLD

I read the average make up / beauty routine these days includes 27 steps and takes 40 minutes!

Who on earth has the time to do that every day?

My beauty routine has always been a quick one. Water and moisturiser.  I use Aveeno moisturiser  that works for me, I believe, although I’m not sure what I would look like if I didn’t use it. It’s says its got oatmeal in, so I’m porridged inside and out.

People always say I have a lovely skin but to me it looks exactly like everyone else’s.

I naturally sleep on my back, which prevents sleep wrinkles and keeps my skin smooth I suppose. I am actually a natural back sleeper.

As for my hair, I comb it a different way each day to stop it from getting flat, I put it up away from my face with a few clips and that’s me done, 3 steps, 5 minutes and looking perfectly presentable for 99 years.
