I travel a lot for work. (When I am traveling I am often in radically different climates. It plays havoc on my skin. Plus, I sometimes change my look depending on what region I am in.) So, I am always on the go! I love shopping,gardening, makeup and my Great Dane Rex. I am a live long learner. I love all the information I learn on this site.
I am always looking for that one thing that will turn back time and make me look younger.

Good skin care
|My Beauty Secret:||
I am not sure if I have a secret. I am a fantic about washing my face at least twice a day with a brand new face cloth. I use retinol to minimize any acne I may get by spot treatments. It usually decreases the acne by 35-60%.
Some how I have developed sensitive combination skin with redness. I am a big fan of double cleansing with cetaphil (to get the makeup off) and then another cleanser to do the heavy lifting. I have a clarisonic that helps with clogged pores.
I like to switch around my products to get maximum effects. I believe if you you the same ole thing time and again it sort of looses its effectiveness. Plus, I love skin care. Who am I fooling?

I just found this product. I know there is no such thing as a "SILVER BULLET" cure. However, in my opinion this is darn close. I have been using this for about 30 days and it has radically changed the appearance of my skin. This is gentle enough to use every day. (I have even used it 2x a day when my skin is acting up.) It has kept my skin clear and looking bright. Here is the product description:This unique, Rice-based enzyme powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to smooth the skin and accelerate cell renewal. Our unique Skin Brightening Complex of Rice Bran, Salicylic Acid, Green Tea, Grapefruit and Licorice helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation. Papain and other active agents derived from Rice Bran and Rice Extract help to regulate melanin production while micro-exfoliating dead cells. A super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal calms inflammation, leaving the skin extraordinarily clear and refreshed. Gentle enough to use on a daily basis. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.
I don't always sleep well when traveling. This product is key!This kinetin-rich cream hydrates and smoothes under the eyes, while an advanced peptide formula boosts circulation to help reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness. Use it daily to give tired eyes a little oomph.
