I’m not thin but I have a healthy weight, and Lord knows I could cut down on that monthly dose of chocolate fudge ice cream, and still, the other women at the gym would give me the stink eye every time they saw me in the locker room. Here’s the annoying truth: I’m pushing 50 and my skin has never looked as great as it does right now. Every time someone asks what secret skin care product I use and I tell them soap, I know they think I’m making fun of them.

But I’m not! Truly, my secret to having spectacular skin is to keep it clean with FaceDoctor’s Rejuvenating Soap! I know they don’t believe me because of we all part of that generation that grew up watching women in our family begin to use the anti-wrinkle cream by the time they were in their mid-thirties. So, we assumed we had to do the same when our time came. And I did, for a long time, but the effects were always short term.

I discovered this soap a bit by accident when I was searching for all-natural skin care products with sea buckthorn oil. I had heard about the wonders of this organic oil, but I wasn’t sure I was ready to take the leap of faith and use a cream with this oil in it. I was looking for some sort of cleanser but I had no idea I would find a soap. Well, yes, soap is technically a cleanser but we are so used to seeing facial cleansers in the shape of a light foam or a clear washing lotion.

Fortunately, I’m not one to back down from a challenge and this rejuvenating soap seemed like a great idea. I think I knew this was different immediately in the first week because I felt my skin was reacting differently. This feeling that my skin was adapting to it so quickly, was what convinced me to never stop using it.
