Sheesh, Denise, did you have to start that whole conversation about our faces? You may have one pore that has a bit of a problem, but I've got a whole faceful of problems. I realized what was wrong recently, thanks to Denise too. I said something about my freckles. I've had them since I was a child. Denise says, "You don't have freckles." I said, "I cover them up with makeup."
Wrong. I scrutinized my face recently and realized what I'd been calling freckles was skin discoloration and AGE SPOTS. The freckles were indeed gone. Eek! No one ever told me that I'd get age spots. I'm on hormones, people, and have been since my early twenties! Isn't that supposed to stop these dreaded things from appearing? After this revelation, I began piling on more makeup and haunting the counters at Ulta. Nothing. Nada. The skin just continued to look like I'd developed a bad case of measles.
I love my readers. They bring so much to my life. Trust one of them to rescue me. One of my readers, Emily Hildebrandt, emailed me to tell me how much she liked a book. We chatted back and forth a bit and a week or so later she asked me if I'd ever heard of Arbonne. Um no. I sensed a sales pitch coming. LOL She's a consultant and sent me some samples of the anti-aging system. I forgot them when I went on a trip (shows you how much I thought they'd help)and she asked me how I liked them. I dug them out from under the pile of books to be read, research material and old mail.
Two days later I'm in awe. I kid you not, my skin seemed to GLOW! And the discolorations are fading. They're not gone yet, but the lines at my eyes nearly are. This stuff is fabulous! Do you think I could bathe in it? LOL They have something for you young things too. If you're interested in having a sample, I asked Emily if I might pass along her email. Here it is: email@example.com
I think it's hilarious the way we women have to share these things. I went to church Sunday and told everyone about it. My friend Sandra peered at my face and said, "I can see a difference around your eyes." It was hilarious the way we take it so seriously. But hey, anything to battle Father Time. LOL
Want to share a beauty tip with me or the girls? Lay it on us! Just don't tell us to have plastic surgery. Shudder. I don't like knives unless I'm killing someone in a book.
