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.
My clients are crying as their lips and skin are so dry! But today it is in the 80’s in Florida so go figure I am actually sweating after picking rosemary from my garden for dinner.
Winter is not pretty nor kind to our skin!
So this is what I do for my clients skin OR recommend they give to themselves in a pinch while at home.
Honey Face and Lip MASK
Wrap the clients cleansed face with a warm steamed wet towel. Leave the towel on at least 3 minutes allowing the client to relax a bit.
Remove the towel.
Apply organic honey to the face and neck.
Leave on the face at least 10 minutes.
Remove the honey mask with a warm wet steamed towel.
Follow up with a Rosewater skin toner.
Apply a light moisturizer.
And a dash of an eye gel.
A sweet simple delight! Your clients will ❤️love!
* Please note: Ask the client if they are allergic to honey or anything ALWAYS do a patch test first. Oh and by the way, you may use this on this lips too. Great for smokers lips,dehydrated lips and peeling flaky lips. Add a dash of organic brown sugar and rub on the lips for an on the cheap lip scrub. My little miracle workers!
Sometimes the simple things found in nature and the farmers market can make all the difference!
