Tuesday’s Topic: Instant Gratification for Defining Skin Structure!
Last Friday night I was excited to be invited to an exclusive party with a great guy. I had the perfect dress and shoes but I felt my face looked tired. Any Botox or injectable fillers I had gotten a year and a half go were completely gone. I deliberately didn’t go back for more for three reasons. One) they are expensive, two) they can have side effects and three) I know skin care products these days work really well for anti-aging. The only good thing about injectable fillers is the fact that you leave with wrinkles greatly reduced about a half hour after you get there. It’s instant gratification. However, I usually also had to leave with some bruising which some people are more apt to get than others. Anyway, instead of heading to the medi-spa for injections I started trying and using tightening serums, wrinkle fillers and line erasers for that instant lift. I knew I already had a few favorites but I had to go through my drawers and boxes (from my recent move) to find any firming products I had forgotten about or samples that I had never used. I wanted something that not only works cumulatively but more importantly (for this particular event) I wanted it to work immediately!
Hallejullah! I hit the jack pot! Some were products I already loved and had full sizes of but some were samples I had never tried before. I haven’t been that excited since I found the Barbie with the three wigs when I was 9 at the swap meet!
My skin looked so radiant and firm that night and my date complimented me on my skin about a dozen times. He kept asking if I really just turned 50, and said he just couldn’t believe it. The great part is I knew he was telling the truth. And it was all thanks to the treatments I did in preparation for this big night. I felt so good and had so much fun that I wanted to share with you what I did to achieve my radiant skin for an even more brilliant night!
After cleansing I did these three things:
• For smoothing texture and brightening and firming my skin I used Jan Marini C-ESTA Mask
• For additional tightening around my eyes I used Purlisse Pur Eye Adore Quadra Benefit Serum
• For my neck and décolleté I used Dermelect Self Esteem Neck Firming Lift
• For defining and accentuating my facial structure (such as cheek bones) and add contour of my face by the ultimate in firming I used Strivectin Instant Facial Sculpting Cream
• For gorgeous lips instantly I used Amatokin Lip
This sounds like a lot of steps but it really didn’t take long at all. And believe me; it was worth the wait even had it taken a whole day!
