Don’t want to age fast?

No matter what your age… The two quickest ways to age your skin are not washing your face before you go to sleep and going to bed with your makeup on! Can you guess what the other is?  We’ll get back to that shortly.

Not washing your face day & night and removing ALL your makeup is so important for happy healthy looking skin. Your face needs to be clean BEFORE you go to sleep every single night. So, get to it if you want to have amazing skin.

Another reason the skin ages faster is by not wearing sunscreen daily. Even when it isn’t sunny 🌞 outside. I know what you’re thinking … I don’t need it much really. Or just need to use it in the summer a little. I was a late sunscreen bloomer! Living up north we only had two real months to enjoy in the sun! But eventually I grew a bit older and wiser. I realized I needed to be sun smart and added sunscreen to my daily beauty regime.

I’m not trying to lecture you I’m simply trying to help you.

So, if you want to look your best longer… wash your face nightly and add sunscreen in your life! 24/7 and 365 days a year.

You’ll thank me one day.

Say Goodbye to …

Straws!

We really need to KISS them goodbye.

I also have mentioned before and think they are aging our lip area  faster by the pursing gesture as we sip and suck on the straw. Don’t you agree?

I know some restaurants have stopped serving plastic straws with drinks and that’s a great step! But I read an article over the weekend that mentioned how the plastic straw we sip our drinks with and all things plastic and what they are doing to the planet. It really really got me thinking.

Personally I don’t use straws very often BUT with that said…I am going to use the last few plastic straws in my kitchen and really make an attempt to protect Mother Earth and do my share and be more eco-friendly. How about you? Have  you already stopped using them or gone to paper or the new reusable straws?

I’d rather see my lip imprint on a glass of iced tea and not choke an animal in the sea!!! Let me know your thoughts.

Hello Sunshine!

Greetings from sunny Florida!

The most frequently asked question I hear on a daily basis is how do I get my skin to look like yours?

The answer is simple. I take care of it.Since I was a little girl I spent time devouring my mothers and sisters creams and enjoying the ritual of treating the skin daily.Next, I went on to spread the message and held skincare sessions with my friends and their faces.I was only five years old but somehow I KNEW it was important. I never knew how important and I also never thought I would end up in the business of skincare and beauty.However,moving from the New York metropolitan area did not prepare me for so much sun and the danger that can come.If you don’t want to age faster…USE sunscreen.You will still get some sun and color but be armed and protected.

It is the best beauty advice I can give you for pretty healthy looking skin next to eating well.

It is that time of year my dears when you want nothing more than to dance in the sun and let your face and body get some golden color.

Keep sunscreen handy next to your cell phone or tablet. You will be so glad you did.cropped-sunscreen-beach-2014-photo.jpg

Day 20 to more beautiful skin

MiaColorFan-7 colorsLadies and Girls listen up!

As a beauty PRO hearing you going to sleep with your makeup on…makes me wanna scream!
While I am not perfect and I have done it a few times in my life when I was in my late teens. I want you to keep in mind your face will not be so kind to you and pores will clog, skin will look dirty and you won’t feel very pretty. Those of you who want to look younger are actually aging your skin faster by not washing it day and night!

YOU must wash your face at night from ALL the days makeup, stress and pollution too!
I have shared with you before my beauty secret…Clarisonic sonic cleansing unit. It wiggles my face clean unlike a wash cloth. It’s all the rage with celebrities too! I professionally recommend it to all my clients in my studio too.

Looking good and healthy looking flawless skin takes work!
What you do today will show on your face tomorrow. You decide how good do you want your skin to look!!!

Thankful November

“Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many”. No one knows who said this but I think the  words are very powerful!

As a professional makeup-artist I hear so many negatives from women about aging and how unattractive they are getting with age. Even the younger ladies tell me this. We need to erase this kind of chatter!!!

I am truly THANKFUL  I am still in the game. Aging with grace and becoming even better with age. It beats the alternative. And you?
