Are you taking better care of your skin in the pandemic? Or have you fallen into a lazy no skin care and no makeup routine?
As a make-up artist and skin therapist I never stopped! I know many of my clients have chosen to opt out of most makeup and their skin care “go to” is mainly moisturizer.
I have so enjoyed… , playing,testing,spraying,sniffing and editing my beauty and skincare products even in the pandemic. I also have calmed down on using foundation or tinted moisturizer I still use them but softer lighter and fresher in application especially behind a face mask.
And I have also discovered a new way to take care of myself! I have fallen hard for Face Fitness an exercise book for your face and so much more! The cover reads “Simple Exercise and Rituals for Toned, Glowing Skin”
Written by an esthetician and health enthusiast Patricia San Pedro. She obviously practices what she preaches even with a few children and a business. She looks fabulous!
I am still reading and test driving the exercises. So far I love the Lip 👄Cardio Exercise.
This exercise gives the lips 👄 a natural lift! especially if your lips sides go down. You know if you frown or have tension in your mouth area. Sometimes it’s your bite that’s not right. No matter what your issue is. This lip cardio exercise is for you. Feels good too.
*Another favorite of mine is the Neck Cardio.
*And the Forehead Glow Flow.
I’m still practicing and trying to get the hang of how to do these exercises but I’m ALL in!
If you want happy healthier glowing toned skin? This book just might be what you need.
Not fillers, Botox, using filters. Start an exercise regime for your skin.
The pandemic,death, fires,hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, violent protests, deaths and murder hornets and lots of emotions like hate… just a bit of what we’ve all seen, felt and been going through this year.
We’ve got a lot going on in our world 🌎 right now! 2020 is throwing ALL it can at us.
With that said …
Can you say you’re not stressed, frustrated or uneasy?
I notice my clients at my beauty cottage are feeling hopeless. When they place there orders for curbside pickup they seem so blue. I see it in their eyes. And feel the vibe too. But I try and encourage them. I want to do the same for you too. There is ALWAYS hope. We must remember to take care of our body, mind and spirit.
No matter what is flying our way.
Enjoy nice walks in the park or in your neighborhood more. Not only is it good for you as exercise it can help you clear your head. Especially at the end of the day.
Keep your mind as clear as you can from negative thoughts and stop being so hard on yourself!
