My love affair with Clinique started when I was sixteen and it’s a relationship that has lasted all of 29 years and counting. As a teenager, skin care was the least of my concerns. School, weight control woes, boys (sorry, mom!)- those were the really tough issues I faced then. Í guess it’s easy to take skin care for granted when you’re young and blemish-free.
As I grew older, however, I started to realize the benefits of Clinique’s lifelong habit. A stray sunspot, a few freckles, a wrinkle here and there, and all of a sudden, it dawned on me that no one ever escapes the ravages of aging unscathed. Still, I am luckier than most. Having grown up with a routine that Clinique taught me, I can honestly say that for someone nearing midlife, aging gracefully- skinwise, that is- is not totally an impossibility. Here, judge for yourself.
If my story isn’t proof enough of what good skin care can do for you, then why don’t you give it a try yourself? It’s the best time to start a Clinique habit because this month, from September 1 to 23, is Clinique Bonus Time again! Hands up if you love freebies! I know I do!
