My Face Lift In A Compact


main_web
Suzanne Somer’s Face Master

I like to call this my personal “face lift in a compact”. The Suzanne Somer’s “Face Master”. It uses electromagnetic wave energy (micro current) to stimulate and tone the skin and facial muscles. It works great to kill the bacteria that causes acne!

The year I attended beauty college was one of the most financially strapped years of my life. I could not afford expensive beauty products. But, I DID own a Face Master. I used it 3-4 times a week back then. I was dealing with unusually oily skin. I know now it was caused from lots of stress and the Texas heat stimulating my oil glands in to overdrive!

At the age of 38, I was desperate for something that could help me with anti-aging and skin tone. I started to use my Face Master out of necessity. I noticed firmer, toner skin. I also noticed smaller pore size and way less break outs! My skin glowed!

Here’s another plus…It plumps your lips! Whenever I have used the feathering technique around my lips there is visible plumping! One of my instructors at school used to have me bring it to school and plump up her lips before a night out!

O.K. it gets even better. One of the Rep’s for a popular skin line came to our school to demonstrate microderm to our class. She took one look at me and said to the instructor “I want whatever SHE is using!”. I told her” it’s just my Face Master!”

No, I do not work for Suzanne Somers or Face Master. I am simply passing on some really valuable information to those who are interested in this amazing product!

Thank you so much for reading my blog. Now go get your Face Master! I LOVE mine!

I have a really simple and easy to make home-made chocolate masque recipe just in time for Valentine’s day! I know of  reputable skin product companies that have pretty pricey chocolate masques in their line. This one will only cost a few penny’s on the dollar to make.

Here’s the recipe:

1. 1 Tablespoon of Raw Cacao Powder (You can use regular cocoa powder such as Hershey’s etc. with great results!)

2. 1 Teaspoon of Organic Honey (Regular honey will do just fine!  Still has excellent benefits)

3. 1/2 Teaspoon of Organic Coconut Oil

Blend ingredients until smooth, masque will be consistency of frosting. Thick is good!

Smooth all over face and throat. Leave on for at least 10 minutes. You can leave on as long as you like, but I must warn that if your skin is warm or the climate is warm, it may start to drip a little! Have fun making your masque!

Homemade Honey-Almond Scrub


AS5

Here’s an easy to make honey almond scrub recipe that also doubles as a masque. I made this one today and used it on my friend Monica. Her skin was so soft and dewy afterwards!

The almonds make a gentle manual exfoliating scrub. The honey acts as a hydration and a soothing anti-inflammatory. The coconut milk is cleansing and moisturizing.  The cinnamon is great for circulation and moving toxins out of the skin.

 

 

The Ingredients:

 

1.  1/4 Cup Raw Almonds (Ground up in blender). Be careful not to over blend , or you may end up with almond butter!

 

2.  1 Tablespoon Raw Honey

 

3.  2 Tablespoons Coconut Milk

 

4.  1 Pinch of  Cinnamon

 

Carefully grind raw almonds in your blender or food processor (pulse).

 

AS3

 

Separately mix in the raw honey with the coconut milk and the cinnamon.

 

Almond Scrub

 

Add in your ground almonds and mix with spoon or wooden stick. Add additional coconut milk if necessary for desired consistency. Preferably thick.

 

~You can use this scrub all over the body. Apply to dampened skin and rub in circular motions. Let sit for at least ten minutes for masque benefits, then rinse off with warm water and/or a wash cloth.

 

Enjoy!!!!

 

Please let me know if you make this recipe, I would love to hear what you thought of it!!
