Happy September to Everyone!
As much as I love the summertime, I always look forward to the Fall – even though we don’t get much of one here in LA – a five degree change is nice!
As I mentioned in my last blog, I hinted to some facts and fiction when it comes to skin care. Now, I come by “a love & knowledge” for skin care by some default.
My family’s name and history is synonymous with having made some of the biggest Starlettes of our time beautiful! Everyone from Rita Hayworth, to Marilyn Monroe, to creating Bette Davis Eyes.
There are so many key steps in the world of beauty and great skin but one of the basics is to have a great skin care regime.
There are some key steps that many women skip in order to either save time, not have to buy a ton of products, etc…(which I am all for by the way)…BUT, if you don’t follow a proper order of “skin care” any product you use is useless.
First off there is the make-up remover/cleansing step which most of us do. Secondly, you MUST use a toner. Toner is the key. Without a great toner, none of the following steps of moisture/serums will soak into the skin. Think of a toner as the gateway that opens the pores to accept anything you put on after. With it ON after cleansing, your skin can welcome any moisturizer, anti-aging, serum, etc. and will only enhance the effects of what goes on your skin after.
Now, with that said, I also mentioned why you should NEVER wax anything on your face. I learned this from one of the pros that for any hair removal on your face, you only tweeze. Waxing actually pulls and stretches the skin making it less resistant to future sagging skin. The more you wax (especially around the eyes where its more delicate skin), it continually pulls at the skin and down the road causes that unwanted sagging.
On that note, I am signing off for now but will be back next month with what I have put together as the Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe. Not only did the adults like this one, but the kids flipped out as well!
