    Excuse #4: “I’ve Tried Absolutely Everything And Nothing Seems To Work”

     

    This excuse is an interesting one for several reasons. Trying “everything” is a huge task and quite expensive!

    There is so much on the market these days it’s difficult to try them all, but I get the point. You’re frustrated and tired of trying skin care products that don’t work, right?

     

    So stop the madness!

    How To Avoid The Movie Mascara Streak Up

     

    The movie was a real tearjerker and her best friend had the raccoon eyes to prove it. But Jennifer’s eyes were streak free. How did she do it?

    With a busy, active lifestyle, Jennifer liked the idea of mascara. She knew it really enhanced her whole eye area but…she just couldn’t make the daily commitment.

    That’s when she discovered lash tinting. It was a perfect streak free fit for her. And Jennifer isn’t the only one. We have lots of clients that love the convenience of lash tinting for many reasons.

    Excuse #3: “It’s Too Late For Me To Do Anything About My Wrinkles!”

     

    Okay, this excuse has my knickers in a twist! Why?

    Well, that’s easy. We live in a world with incredible advancements in absolutely everything from computers to skin care. That’s why our ability to rejuvenate skin that’s “too late” for any help is remarkable.

    The products I offer, as well as my treatments, are living proof that you can look younger at any age!

    Bottom line: It’s never too late to turn back the hands of time.

    Excuse #2: “My Mom Always Used Soap And She Has Good Skin

     

    This is an interesting excuse. So let’s take a close look at it. Because mom always used soap seems, on the surface, to be a strong enough justification to do the same thing, right?

    Well, mom also used:

    • A rotary phone or push button phone
    • Waxy lipstick
    • A sink to wash dishes
    • The newspaper to catch up on what’s happening

     

    Done any of those things lately?

    Excuse #1: “I Don’t Have Time To Do All Of That!”

     

    I get it.

    Most of us have incredibly busy lives. But what concerns me is the message behind the belief that taking care of your skin is like preparing for an exam, time-consuming and exhausting.

    If taking care of your skin were that intensive nobody would do it!

    So the question I have for that excuse is, “What exactly is all that?

    Breaking out? Check your cosmetics for this major pore-clogging ingredient.

     

    Isopropyl Myristate is an ester of isopropyl alcohol and myristic acid. Why do cosmetics companies use Isopropyl Myristate? It's a super emollient ingredient with a light, non-greasy feel. It adds an amazing 'slip' to products and is readily absorbed by the skin.

    The Dangers Of Washing Your Face With Deodorant Soap

     

    Give us a moment while we take a deep breath! It’s true that some women do wash their faces with deodorant soap. We know it’s not you, but would you please pass this information along to your friend?

    Facial skin has a lower pH than the rest of your body. That means it’s slightly more acidic. A deodorant soap, however, is more alkaline. When applied to your face, it encourages the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

    Does Exfoliation Cause Dry Skin?

     

    In short, no way! However, over exfoliation does cause rough, red irritated skin. That’s why we stress for you to be gentle with your home care. The harder you rub the product, the less positive results you will see. Instead, you will only damage your skin, and you definitely don’t want that!

    Gentle exfoliation should be an integral part of your skincare routine. It helps to speed up the process of skin renewal by removing old dead skin, revealing younger, smoother skin.
