Primers

Ladies, One should always use a primer as the first step of theiir makeup appli astrike>plication. It is. the glue" that binds your makeup. It will not only set your foundation but it will help all of your.makeup right down to powder and blush last longer. Less touchups throughout the day are not only more convenient but will save you money in the long run. One I like is Estee Lauder's face primer. It comes in a matte or illuminating formula. Use the illuminating if you have a photo session coming up!

Double your collagen production

Estee Lauder has a new product...well it's really a reformulation. Perfectionist CP+ is now Perfectionist CPR. Sounds like a medical product, right? Well the claim is that it doubles your collagen production in 2 weeks.

Toner...Expensive Water?

A certain prestige brand (which I respect fot the most part so shall remain nameless her) teaches it's new consultants that toner is nothing more than expensive water.  Not true.  A toner does two things for your skin.  The first is to remove that last layer of grime that your facial wash doesn't always get to.  The cleaner your skin is, the clear is stays.  The second thing it does is really toners function and that is that it closes up your pores and rebalances your skin's ph level...getting it ready to accept what treatment you are next going to apply to it.  Soap and cleansers change the ph balance of your skin so when you use them you need to get the ph level back to normal or your next steps are for naught.  You can do this one of 2 ways...wait 2 hours for skin to do it on it's own (I do not know about you but I do not have that kind of time) or you can pick the easy way and swipe some toner on your face.  You do not need to worry about getting an expensive toner...good ole witch hazel is one of the best.  But so long as it is a toner....it will do the job.  Hope this clears up some confusion or mystery.

Get a GOOD Beauty Routine


Okay...I admit it....I AM OBSESSED WITH SKINCARE!!!!  I do not find this to be a bad thing.  Especially as my 41st birthday is approaching and people are shocked to learn that I will be 41 as the tend to think I am in my early 30s...I must be doing smething right.  So what do I do?  I'll tell you.

First of all...I make sure to drink at least 35 ounces of water each and every day.  I can do this because I follow the principles in The Water Secret by Dr Howard Murad.  It is agood read and tells you quite a bit about hydration which is the building block to beautifu
l skin.
I never go to bed with makeup on.  I clanse my face thoroughly morning and evening.  Ater which I apply a repair product followed by a moisturizer.

my go to products are:
Cleanser...Estee Lauder Verite Light Lotion Cleaser....GREAT for my sensitive skin
Day time  repair is Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator...evens out ALL signs of skin discoloration...literally.
Daytime Moisturizer...Avon Reversalist...because it has an spf 25
Nightime I use Este Lauder Take It Away makeup remover and then cleanse with the Verite
Nightime repair is Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair.  This is the one product I simply cannot live without. It helps with my dry flaky spots. my skintone and my fine lines beginning to show up.  Seriously...get out and get a bottle of this.
Nightime Moisturizer is Avon Anew Genics....this stuff you can feel working.  It tighten and brightens.
My eye creme is nw Avon Anew Genics but before that was EsteeLauder Advanced Ight Repair.

Does it seem like alot to you?  Takes me 10 minutes a day....to take 10 years off the look of my skin..yeah its worth it!

How to apply mascara

I am obsessed with trying to make my lashes look larger...here's a new trick I read First, start with not 1 but 2 coats of lash primer (I love Estee Lauder's Lash Primer Plus)...letting the first coat dry before applying the 2nd. When you reach the ends...wiggle the brush to add bulk. On the top lashes, swipe 3 ways for a full and thick fanned out look: -mid lashes, stright to forehead -inner lashes toward inner brow -outer lashes towards your temple On the bottom lashes, holding the wand vertically, tap the lashes...the aim here is for tint NOT lots of product. For the biggest look in eyes, use a black mascara on top lashes and a brown or navy color on the bottom lashes.

The Water Secret

I am currently reading the book "The Water Secret" by Dr. Howard Murad. So far it is provong to be a very interesting read. When I finish, I will post a book report. In the meantime,I want to share an interesting view that I just read. Topical skin treatments are only 20% effective, the other 80% must come from an individual's nutritional care. The most expensive treatments in the world will do you no good if you are not taking care of yourself from the inside.

Nutrients for beautiful skin

I have been doing some reading lately on NATURAL ways to stay beautiful. And I am sure that you know I am not a fan of plastic surgery or similar cosmetic procedures. Here are some nutrients for a natural facelift: Vitamin C: for rebuilding collagen Iron: to prevent the breakdown of elastin Omega 3: for radiant skin Here are some of my favorite foods containing these: oranges, spinach, walnuts and flaxseed. Of course, there are many other yummy options. You can consider supplements, however, the more you can get from foods the better. And as always, be sure you are drinking at least 64 ounces of water daily.
