Whew, it's a hot one today. Much nicer to saty inside and work on the computer. Here's an article I wrote recently. Enjoy!
Skin Care and Beauty Routines – How Does Yours Measure Up?

Good skin care and beauty are easier to achieve than you might imagine. And since we only get one face per lifetime, it’s much better (and cheaper) to invest in good skin care rather than a facelift.

When choosing a skin care regimen, it is important to use all of the steps from the same brand because they are formulated to work together. Don’t use a piece of this set and a piece of that set. Also, be sure to use ALL the steps in a skin care set. You wouldn’t bake a cake and leave out the flour, would you?

Wash your face thoroughly before applying makeup and glamour cosmetics. Give yourself a nice facial. An artist wouldn’t paint a masterpiece on a stained or dingy canvas, right?

When applying your facial skin care cleanser, use light strokes so as not to tug on your skin. Mask should not be applied too close to the mouth or the eye area. Toner and moisturizer round out the facial and now you’re ready for foundation and color cosmetics.

True beauty comes from within, and makeup and cosmetics simply enhance that. If your skin care and beauty routine doesn’t involve a lot of glamour makeup, don’t worry. A few shades of neutral or sheer cosmetics will give you that special glow and look of natural beauty. Pay attention to your manicure and pedicure as well.

For goodness sakes, don’t fall asleep with makeup or cosmetics on. It’s estimated that for every night you do, your skin ages by 12 days! Give yourself a quick facial before you hit the sheets. It’s called skin CARE for a reason.
