Beauty Rituals?

Why a beauty ritual? Is it the evening cleanse to remove the filth from your face? Is it the sure fire way to have 6 minutes of alone time while locked in your bathroom away from your lovely yet demanding family? Is it fear that if you do not have one, you may end up looking like a shriveled up old hag? Or, do we just do it because our facialist and our beauty magazines say so?

Honestly, for me? All the above! It is not bedtime until my beauty ritual is complete. It is my "heaven of earth" it is my 6 minutes of uninterrupted "Holly time", it is the least I can do for myself, preservation of my youth and because I know it works. My beauty ritual is my private 6 minute spa get-a-way, my second piece of cheesecake without guilt. It is the whole bag of Lyndt Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles.

It is simple and divine. I cleanse and exfoliate.(Norabloom of course)I spend a couple minutes really massaging the products all around. This is great for circulation, smoothing the skin and battling clogged pores. It gives me the second to breathe deep and take it all in. I encourage all women, even teen girls to take a second, look in the mirror, give themselves a wink and say. "hey pretty lady, all is well, today was a good day, even the bumps in the day". Now with a refreshed face, a spritz of yummy toner, a swipe of moisturizer and eye creme- off to bed. Tomorrow is a brand new day and I will have a fresh face for the world.

It is silly how simple a little beauty ritual, fresh face and a good attitude and a moment of quit time can make all the difference.

PS Can y'all believe some women actually skip the beauty ritual at night? What the heck?

Need a lift?

Every gal needs a lift from time to time.

During the aging process, fibroblasts activity decreases, affecting skin strength and elasticity. The dermal degradation is observed as fine line, wrinkles, and skin lacking in tone.

Meanwhile there is a decrease in blood flow and the oxygenation to the skin and the growth of new skin cells drops dramatically. The skin looses its ability to spring back and maintain a youthful appearance. Microdermabrasion is a type of facial where we use a machine in combination with European Facial Techniques.

The microderm machine offers a 2 element approach. Combining skin exfoliation with regenerating suction, this unique system stimulates subdermal activities the "RENEW" the anti-aging mechanisms of the skin that slow with age. It removes 10-100 microns of skin. :)

Microdermabrasion is the fastest growing application for skin resurfacing technology. As a non-invasive technique, it respects the skin's integrity, minimizes trauma and corrects several skin conditions while creating "healthy vital glow".
