Day 21 of MY Beauty Secrets

Working in Manhattan on photo shoots and on special events taught me a lot! One of the beauty dilemmas I saw when we had an early call on set was… the models had puffy face and eyes And dark bags under the eyes especially when the sun 🌞 hadn’t even come up yet.

So besides using 🥒 cool cucumber slices, chamomile and anti-inflammatory eye gels on the lids and under the eyes and face there was another trick I discovered and have used on myself and on my VIP clients and the girl next door!

The answer was cold tepid 💦 water. Splashing the face with water at least 8 to 10 times works magic!

It’s especially good to do once you get out of the shower. It deflates and wakes up the face! It also appeared to make the pores appear smaller.

Also, they would not serve them coffee and donuts. They would serve them a cup of warm lemon water. It made them tinkle a lot !

There’s something wonderful about that water!

Better than a face primer! Water! 💦

And drinking it actually made the face and the body look skinnier and flatten the tummy too for photographs or on an event location appearance.

I never forgot that trick… so simple and so effective!

Next time you have someplace special to go to or get your photo taken and more. TRY this model and photographers trick!

Day 12 of MY Beauty Secrets

The other day I was test driving some new products someone sent me as a gift. I applied the eye cream and facial moisturizer to a clean face that night.

In a matter of five minutes my face freaked out. It seems that something In them were not agreeing with me. My face didn’t want it on either.

I quickly took a wash cloth filled it with warm soapy water and washed my face. I removed all the products.

Next, I pat dried my skin.

I went to my kitchen and poured on a cotton round some whipping cream. That is all I had. I carefully applied it to my face and pat soothingly across my closed eyelids.

Milk or Cream for the Win!

I gently pat the milky cream on my entire face. I went to watch TV and allowed it to dry.

Within a few minutes… that cream rescued my skin! The flaming redness went down. The eyelids stopped swelling and I felt so relieved and felt better!

While I’m not a dermatologist I highly recommend if you are in a bind and some new skin care or makeup reacts badly in your skin. Try this DIY.

I think I will put this in my beauty secrets and tricks recipe book!

I did not remove the cream and went to sleep with the cream on. The next morning my face was no more red and felt so baby soft!

Day 7 of MY Beauty Secrets

Feeling stressed? Grinding your teeth? Getting headaches?

Stress less my dear with a Jade Facial roller. Not just for anti-aging I love to use it for all of the above.

Even my dentist noticed a difference in my grinding. I didn’t want to look like I was frowning. It relaxes the jawline when used around the mouth.

It also is great for tired computer eyes. Not so pretty puffy eyes.

I even use it on my shoulders to de-stress and help with muscles tension.

Experiment and play and see what works for you!

So get going and start rolling!
