The different beauty blogs that I read seem to all be doing some sort of end of the year round-up so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do one as well.  WordPress actually supplied me with statistics about my blog for 2012, but I wanted to add my own touch to the process.

I already wrote a post this year about my most popular posts so I prefer not to rehash all that same information again, but what was interesting to me was that my most popular posts in 2012 are actually posts I wrote in 2010 and 2011.  I’ll share some other information from the report instead:

 

How did they find you?

It is interesting to note how Pinterest, which I didn’t discover until some time well into 2012, has become such a force in sharing information.  If you haven’t checked it out yet be sure to give Pinterest a try.  Just be warned – it’s addictive!

One of  the reasons I like writing this blog is because I get to learn something new each time I write a post.  What were my favorite posts from this past year?  Let me see.  I tried to narrow it down:

The Vitamin C Breakdown  

Adult Acne: Causes and Treatments

Is A Vegetarian or Vegan Diet Bad for Your Skin?

Applying Skincare Products One on Top of the Other – Was I Wrong?

Is an Alkaline Diet Good for Your Skin?

Achieving the “No Make-Up” Make-Up Look

Facials, Facials, Facials: Extractions, Breakouts, and What to Do Post Facial

Can Anyone Use Retin-A?

Why Does Mineral Oil Have Such A Bad Reputation?

My favorite skincare book that I read this year was Stop Aging, Start Living by Dr. Jeannette Graf.  Read my review here.

In 2012 I discovered two great skincare lines that I am currently using and would wholeheartedly recommend:  Epionce and Tecniche.  And recently I rediscovered Dermalogica.  Dermalogica has a huge range of products so I’ll just highlight two:  for my fellow estheticians I highly recommend doing your facial massage with their massage cream.  The cream imparts a great glow not to mention hydration to the skin, and it won’t clog pores.  I also love the Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque which I use as a night cream.

As 2012 ends I want to wish everyone a wonderful 2013 filled with health and happiness!  Thank you for your past support and keep reading.
