This week the Lipstick League asks, what part of your beauty routine do you neglect most often?
I skip eyeshadow regularly, but I don't think that counts as neglect. "Neglect" implies it's a step that should be a regular part of my regimen, not optional. Sooo... decollete TLC, I think. Yes, occasionally I dispense "too much" serum into my hands for just my face, so my neck and upper chest get the leftovers. Same for moisturizer. But treating my decollete to keep that skin nicely hydrated and minimizing further signs of aging -- well, I'm not so good at that, although it wouldn't take much to be more diligent. And I know better -- I've written stories about that delicate, sensitive skin. Oops.
