Hey There...

Who doesn't want that GORGEOUS skin that we see in photographs?  (P.S. it's probably airbrushed, models are no different, they get blemishes too).  Tried everything?  here are 2 things: my favorite QUICK fix and my favorite TRICK to gorgeous skin!

Let me first say, I am a makeup artist, not a dermatologist or esthetician, but am a Makeup artist with acne prone skin.  parts of my life (I confessed this in an earlier blog) have been so HORRIBLE with my battle with acne that it was embarrassing to leave the house.  My skin is sensitive to boot... I find that most people who suffer from acne have sensitive skin... So... these 2 things are MILD and won't break you out.

Quick Fix... you wake up the night before a big event (date, wedding, photoshoot, etc...) and you have a ZIT!  UGH.., that is the worst.  What do you do?

 when you go to bed, put a sulfur cream on it and you will be AMAZED at how much that sulfur dries up your pimple.  Be generous with the cream... Don't skimp... really lay it on the pimple (and only the pimple) thick!  I like the PROACTIVE sulfur mask (but ONLY as a spot treatment and leave it on overnight).

Long Term:  I read a LONG time ago that "egg yolk masks" will repair your skin by adding essential vitamins to your skin... I tried it--it WORKED... Just separate an egg, and put the COOOOOLD egg yolk on your skin.  Leave it on for 10 minutes or so (it will get HARD) and rinse it off with warm water.  Then moisturize as usual.  Do this daily for 3-4 days then 2-3 times a week.  Your skin will be VISIBLY better in a day or two.  This is really a HUGE trick and NOT expensive... so it is worth a try!!!

Other tips: get plenty of rest, eat healthy, drink LOTS of water...remove your makeup at night... Stay away from harsh "fixes"...
