Protect yo’ neck!!!

Hey Ladies!!! So…once again I am going to talk about our skin and keeping it beautfiul.  One area that we cannot neglect is our necks!! The neck is often ignored and overlooked but it can either make you look aged or make you look elegant.  We must do the same thing to our neck that we do to our faces.  It must be cleansed, exfoliated, moisturized and protected from the sun.  What a waste it would be to have kept our faces beautiful for years just to end up at 45 with a face of a 22-year old and the neck of a 90-year old.  When it comes to beauty and staying fabulous we must invest a little extra time into ourselves and into the minute body parts that may seem unimportant.  So, add your neck to your morning and bedtime routine.  Put a little extra exfoliator on your neck and wipe it off with a washcloth if you are concerned about getting your hair wet (i.e. the ladies with natural hair!!!). Dab a little acne cream onto your neck because a pimple can pop up anywhere…and they will.  Moisturize it when you put the facial lotion on and apply sunscreen daily or every other day.  I bet you will begin to see the difference in the quality of the skin especially since the skin here is a little thinner than the rest.  Remember to always keep it beautiful…from head (and neck)  to toe.

No excuses…take care of your finest asset!

When it comes to my most prized possessions and what is most valuable to me, it has to undoubtedly be my face. It makes all of my first impressions, it expresses how I feel, and hey, it gets me into the club for free every week! *wink* So, when it comes to keeping my face looking its best, I take a no-excuses approach to my skincare…and so should you! There is no excuse for adult acne.  We have to take care of our skin.  I suffered with acne for most of my teen years and I honestly still do. But I have learned what works for me and how to manage my breakouts and keep them to a minimum.  Your face is a treasure and must be treated that way.  Research is the key! Seek out help if you cannot figure out on your own how to halt the breakouts or treat them.  No one said that being beautiful is easy; but it must be done! Go see a dermatologist…ask your friends for tips…do NOT be afraid of prescription acne treatments.  I use a prescription cream on my face daily and have found that to be the key to success when it comes to controlling my breakouts and keeping my skin even and clear.  We are beyond puberty now and can no longer blame the bumps on raging hormones.  Take control and do not be lazy and give up.  Your face expresses so much to the world.  Make sure you send the right message and it isn’t muffled or distorted from the mountains and valleys that could form on your cheeks! Nothing beats clear skin and a beautiful complexion.
