Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life. I'm here to tell you not to give up.

"I got an IUD and have been hit by a terrible spate of facial acne.  It would be great to have an appropriate BB cream to help even out my tone and nourish my skin as I try to get it back to normal."

I am....33 years old (I had to think about it! LOL) and still suffer from acne.  Sometimes it's worse than what I experienced as a teenager.  I have recently found a renewed self-confidence and these breakouts definitely take away some of that umph in my step.  With foundation, I struggle to find the right shade for my skin so I end up looking gray and ashy or like an oompa loompa.  Neither of which is a good look.  I've wanted to try a BB creme but was hesitant to buy the typical drug store brands because they don't typically match my skin tone.

 Thank you again for your answers everyone. And congrats to the winners!
