About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Peel & Reveal

If you've ever been to my spa for a skin analysis, it's very likely you've heard my analogy of the onion as pertaining to the skin. The Good Lord knows that my spa manager has heard it so many times she wants to punch me! I can get technical though in my zeal for the skin, and when I notice client's eyes glazing over & getting overwhelmed I use this visual aid. This breaks it down. Think of your skin like an onion, we have several layers including the epidermis & the dermis. Over time and as we get older dead skin cells accumulate. Think of an onion in the grocery store- uneven, battered rough...that's how our skin gets.

Exfoliation I feel is the key to good skin. Period. Yes we must hydrate & protect, but if you want great looking skin, exfoliation is a must. It helps with acneic skin & unblocking clogged pores, while it's pivotal in the anti-aging process as it gently peels or sloughs dead skin cells resulting in smoother skin that is brighter with fewer lines & wrinkles. After the age of 25, you should move past a scrub(never use one with almonds or apricots- promise me beauties!). Scrubs just work on the very outer layer of the onion. Using something like Kate Somerville's Exfolikate, which has both papaya enzymes & lactic acid, once or twice a week to start can make a huge difference in your skin with only a 2 minute time commitment!

But let's face it(pun intended) some of us aren't diligent when it comes to masks or scrubs, and the only way you will see results is if you're consistent in your home care. That's why I suggest a cream or serum with Alpha Hydroxy Acids that do the work for you while you sleep- yes please! If only there was a cream to make my thighs smaller while I slept...but I digress. This Bioclear serum by Jan Marini with azaleic, glycolic, and salicylic acids helps with my anti-aging goals all while helping me be breakout free! No one understands more than moi what an investment skin care is. Incorporate this step into your system & all of your other products will work better, too. Promise!
Peace. Love. Exfoliation. M
