Skin Care Products

After I do a fantastic treatment on my client's skin, she loves how she looks. 
And she will ask, "How long can I keep my face looking like this?" 
I tell her "It depends on what you do at home.  Do you cleanse twice a day?  Do you moisturize properly?  Do you  wear sunscreen daily?  Do you use the right products?"
The she will ask me what I recommend for her to use at home.  And, immediately she follows that with "What can I buy at the grocery/drug store?" 
I tell her that most products out there made for the skin are not harmful to the skin.  But, does she really know what she's getting when she purchases a product at a drug store or a grocery store?  There are so many brands of products.  Which one is best for her skin?  Most of the "over the counter" products are 70 to 80% water.  So, she is not getting the most out of that product and she ends up using more of that product with each application than a professional product.  Also, if she doesn't like it, it will sit on her bathroom counter or shelf. 
A professional product line is the best way to go for many reasons.  One of the reasons is you will have a professional recommend it for you and that professional will stand behind that product.  If the product isn't working the way you want it to, the professional will find out why and recommend another for you. 
The other reason is because it's a professional product, it is more concentrated and will last longer.  Usually, you only need to use a nickle to a dime size of the product.
I had a client tell me that she didn't like MAC's eye shadows.   Now, personally, I think MAC is an amazing makeup line.  I asked her why she didn't like MAC.  She told me that it was too dark and heavy for her.  So I asked her what eye shadows had she used before.  She told me a product from a drug store.  There was the problem. 
She was used to using a lot of product to get the results that she wanted.  And so when she applied MAC, which is very concentrated in pigment, it was too much for her.  And, I explained that to her.  A little goes a long way!!!  And that is the way a product should be.
And, a professional makeup artist or esthetician should always stand behind his or her products.  If a client isn't happy with the product, always ask questions.  Make sure the client is using it properly.  And, ask what results the client is looking for.  And remember that it is always about the client...
The idea is to make her look and feel her best!!!

When it comes to African American skin care and others with darker complexions however, there are a few skin care problems that are much more prevalent.

There are products that we buy, but doesn't know if it can really help us. Beauty products are one example of what we buy in groceries and we are not sure of its content. Most products, as what this article said, 70-80% of it is water. It is better to consult a doctor or skin professionals and ask for advice about the kind of product you should use. I think that they have more knowledge about products that are available in the groceries that are effective for our sensitive skin.

The importance of skin care cannot be underestimated. Did you know, for example, that the skin is the largest organ of the human body? Mostly we take our skin very much for granted and don't spend much time thinking about the skin's functions and their importance, until some problem occurs or we injure ourselves.

Texans vs Patriots on Sunday, June 10, 2018 10:17 AM
New England got back on track at New Orleans but can still play better defensively. Fortunately for the Patriots, Houston is an offensively challenged team that has totaled just 20 points in the first two games. They would be wise to turn this into a track meet, knowing the Texans will not be able to keep up on the scoreboard with Watson under center. Another fast start like against the New England Patriots vs Houston Texans game will be the key to whether this team ends up covering a big number, but it is definitely doable.

GGG vs Canelo 2 Ticketmaster on Saturday, July 07, 2018 12:19 PM
These two battled for the first time in their careers last September with the bout coming to a conclusion in a controversial draw, setting up the rematch we all Canelo vs Golovkin 2 Tickets Price assumed we'd see on May 5. Now, as more is revealed, it's seeming less likely that we will. The results of the hearing on April 10 should let us know a definitive status on the middleweight title rematch in Las Vegas.

The Cowboys practice yesterday was a nice affair for the offense who were able to get something going again after being stymied the day before. The Cowboys receiving corps is trying to hone their attack as they will be crucial to keeping defenses honest so Ezekiel Elliott will have room to work. The team is back at it today before having an off day tomorrow. Follow along for Panthers vs Cowboys Live updates.

UFC 229 Cost on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 2:48 AM
There will undoubtedly be a big push from the UFC 229 Fight Online in the lead up to the event, which will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. And while there won’t be a world press tour with McGregor and Nurmagomedov for what the UFC is billing as the biggest fight in promotional history, fans will get the opportunity to see the two rivals practice their verbal skills before the event takes place.
