Let's Talk Skin

Does your skin look exactly how you want it? Does it feel healthy and bright? How do you want it to look anyway and what do you say to yourself when you look in the mirror? Have you considered this question? Do you berate yourself when you look at your skin in the mirror wishing away certain lines or spots that seemed to appear overnight?  I hope not because life is way too short to say unkind things…

Commit To Your Skin

LIFE IS SHORT. USE YOUR GIFT CARD.

 

 We all make resolutions. The endless lists of shoulds and coulds and supposed tos. As I get older, what I have noticed is that I am way more patient with myself.

Know that every moment is special. There…
