How Important is Vitamin C for Your Skin?

Friday, March 26th, 2010

As skin ages it gets thinner. We lose collagen in our skin. Collagen is the building block of skin. Our bodies do not produce vitamin C and we can not store vitamin C so it is essential that we apply vitamin C to our body topically to give your skin the best benefit. Vitamin C applied to the skin also protects your skin from the sun and from free radicals in the environment. Did you know that sun exposure actually suppresses the immune system? Applying vitamin C to the skin can protect your body from this. The effects of applying the vitamin C to the skin can protect your skin for up to 3 days. Its important to look for products with vitamin C to give collagen a boost. Selecting a product that has ingredients high in vitamin C such as kakadu plum, camu camu, pomegranate and acerola cherry.

We Have Eyelash Mites? Yuck!

Did you know that you we have tiny microscopic creatures living in our eyelashes?
Infection and irritation can occur when too many mites congregate in one hair follicle. That’s why you should wash your face every night. Please don’t use your pillow case as a wash cloth.

A great eye make up remover like Mary Kay’s oil free eye makeup remover can help you to keep your eye lashes free of mites.

Your Appearance

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

This is my first blog post for my new website, “Does this ponytail make my butt look big?” You may be wondering what prompted me to start this website and how I came up with the name.

I have been in the cosmetics and beauty industry for many years. While most of my clients truly care about their appearance and do everything they can to put their best face forward, there are people who do not. I run into so many women who say they just don’t have time to care for their skin or apply make-up.

One of my favorite sayings is, “If you don’t take time, time will take you.” My morning beauty routine—which includes washing, moisturizing, supplements, and make-up—only takes me seven minutes (my husband timed me). It makes me sad to hear a busy mom tell me she doesn’t take care of her skin because she doesn’t have time. I’m a wife, mother, and business owner, and I make the time. I love it when my boys tell me I’m beautiful. Come to think of it, it has never been when I’m fresh out of the shower. It’s when I’ve taken the time to enhance my appearance.

I’m amazed at what professional people wear to business appointments and meetings. Don’t even get me started on what people wear to church. It really isn’t that I care what they wear. Who am I to judge them, right? I just feel that when you’re in God’s house you should show Him some respect. How can you do that if you don’t respect yourself?

So, to all my friends who wear their hair in a ponytail, this website is dedicated to you.

Check back every week; I will be posting new articles related to image, fat loss, hair, health, skin care, and make-up. I will share some great tips and even have guest contributors. Feel free to contact me about a topic you would like to know more about in an upcoming blog.
