Clarisonic lovers – Good News!

Anyone receive a Clarisonic for a recent holiday or birthday gift? This is one of my top Beauty Picks for 2013! I can’t live without mine.

confession: I never go to bed without washing my face. Even if I fall asleep I wake up, wash my face and go back to bed.

Good news: Clarisonic introduces the NEW Cashmere brush head! (whoo hoooo); claims to clean your skin SIX TIMES better than using your hands! (yes, re-read that) and even for sensitive skin, it is gentle enough for daily use.

Splash+water+in+eyesHere are 4 tips to get your skin “squeaky” clean.

1. Wash in the pm 2x
The first wash takes off makeup & dirt. Second gets residue & lightly cleans pores (I use Clarisonic for second wash)

2. Add a salicylic acid lotion or wipe to your routine
Perfect 2nd wash. Exfoliates & cleans deeper into pores.

3. Use the Clarisonic
This product pushes impurities out while topically smoothing & buffing skin. I see a huge difference in the skin condition of clients that use it regularly.

4. Finish with a cold water “splash or pass”
On skin commercials you always see the beautiful splash of water in slow motion. Yes, that can be messy but cold water after a cleanse actually closes the pores and helps tighten the skin (as well as following with a Vitamin C serum after drying face).

A Spa Basket for Charity: A Few of My Favorite Things!

I work with the Boys and Girls Club of Burbank each month. I teach them Broadway Style Jazz and actually have a official DANCE TEAM (yay!).

Last year the girls placed in the TOP TEN out of 800 National Submissions in a National Talent Contest.

This year, they WON! They are flying to New Orleans all expenses paid mid May to perform, “All That Jazz” number. (Happy dance, happy dance & Smiles!)
Their big Charity Event for the Club is on Saturday, May 7th 2011. I wanted to donate a basket for the event and I decided besides the BASIC Gift Certificate, I would give it a theme.
