I can handle it..lol..It doesn't seem to make me uncomfortable. I take that back. Once in a while it does. It's usually when someone compliments me in front of others and keep going on and on. Then I get uncomfortable. But it's one of those few uncomfortabities that I can somehow handle..

There's nothing wrong with not hating it when someone tells you that you look good. Sooner or later it will all end, and I'm pretty sure I'll miss it...lol. But I think it can be a problem, when you spend alot of time trying to look great so that you are complimented. Looks aren't everything. If all you are is wrapped up into your looks, than you have a lot more problems than just looking good. If that's not changed, you are going to have a lot of problem when you age. Looks aren't forever.
i dont recall suggesting that it should make people uncomfortable to be complimented. i think i pretty much said the opposite, that women are desperate for compliments. im not really assigning a judgment on their desperation or suggesting they should go from liking compliments to not liking them, im just stating my observation.

No they are different. I have never posted these pics before. Previous pics I posted here were with black hair. These pics with brown.

What do you use on your skin to keep it so young-looking?

I use retin-a at night. During the day I always use a vitamin c serum; generally Skinceuticals CE Ferulic or Skinceuticals CF Phloretin under my sunscreen. Lately I have been using Philosophy Turbo Booster powder mixed with my sunscreen. My sunscreen is Antelios SX by La Roche Posay; it is the BEST sunscreen right now that money can buy in the U.S.... SPF is not enough; a high spf does not protect from UVA sun damage... you need a sunscreen that is high in PPD and U.S sunscreens aren't required to print out their PPD figures. You have to figure it out on your own by doing research or reading boards like Makeupalley where everyone is a skin care freak and orders their sunscreen from Europe (La Roche Posay, Bioderm etc) because they are superior to anything sold in the U.S

I also use a Clarisonic which helps the products to absorb better... it's better than regular exfoliation.

I started to use BB creams recently (imported from Korea) so we'll see how that goes. Just google it if you are interested.... it stands for blemish balm or beauty balm.

Oh, I also use oils... I am a big fan of Josie Maran Argan oil, Emu oil and Tarte Maracuja oil... I will add a few drops after the retin A...

33-35, the hair color looks great Just make sure it's the type of dye without ammonium or h.peroxide.

You've never seen my mother. People usually assume she's in her late 20's or early 30's; she'll be 50 in October. At my old job, my manager asked is she my girlfriend until I told him that was my mother and that she was his age.
