Incredible Woman #3 - LoriAnne Spear. Friday's questions

Kara: "Tell us about your beauty routine. What do you consistently do to keep looking young? Give us some advice and tips."

LoriAnne: "I don’t think I look younger than I am anymore. I used to, but oh well. I don’t really have a beauty routine. I wash, moisturize, and put on make-up, although I am a big fan of facials, just not paying for them. I’m not married to just one product line. I like some Mary Kay products, some Clinique, some L’Oreal, and some Maybelline and Cover Girl. One thing I have learned is to be more accepting of what I really have. For years, I’ve straightened and then recurled my hair on big Velcro rollers. But recently I’ve been more willing to just let my hair be itself – kinda curly. It’s not the beautiful spiral curl like my little sister has, that I wish I had. But it is what it is. And so instead of always blow drying, flat ironing, teasing up the crown, and spraying it in place, now I often just wash and let it do its thing, with a little help from product and my fingers. It does save me time. It’s not glamorous, or even that attractive, but it’s okay, and it’s mine. I inherited it from my dad, and he from my grandma, who got it from her dad. So I’ve just decided to embrace the curl, it’s part of who I am. Besides, my grandma warns me that I could be like her and wish I had the curl back when my hair goes gray. Learn to enjoy and make the most of what you have while you still have it."

I have always looked younger than I am and its terrible when your 22 and being asked why you aren't at school, but when your 40 and 25 year olds are hitting on your then its great!
