I’m getting prep’d and packed for my annual pilgrimage to stay in cyprus with a very good chum. We worked together and have known each other for almost 40 years. Over that time, we have got used to each other’s funny little quirks – she thinks I’m far too vain and fussy over what I allow myself to eat and drink. I don’t spend masses on skin care but I have a good routine. It involves thorough cleansing night & morning, liquid vitamin E rubbed into first sign of wrinkles, followed by anti wrinkle cream. Then the body lotion on arms and legs, briskly to speed up absorbtion. Then face moisturiser. Always one with sun protection. Yes, I am vain and enjoy not looking anywhere near my age – I love it when folk sound aghast when they find I’m a good 20 years older than their best guess. Just a few minutes a day brings such simple pleasures!
