Why You Should Pamper Your Skin

Why should you pamper your skin to a facial? Facials are well known for their simplicity and effectiveness in improving the overall appearance of the facial skin. A facial is a treatment that deeply purifies and exfoliates resulting in smooth and well-hydrated skin. Facials are most often used for minimizing dry skin, acne, wrinkles and skin blemishes. They also work to remove the outer layers of dead skin in order to keep the epidermis toxin free. Receiving facials on a regular basis will cause your pores to remain unclogged and your face to look smooth and healthy. Your skin cells regenerate every six weeks, which is all the more reason to incorporate facials into your life. Facials are a relaxing way to keep your face looking its best.

Now that you know why you should treat your skin to a regular facial, let me give you some reasons why you should get a facial with me! Here goes:

#10 Free Skin Analysis! Get a thorough skin analysis, with more time taken to learn about your skin, tools available to look deeper into the layers of your skin, and a longer term treatment plan defined.

#9 Extractions in a Breeze! Clearing clogged comedones keeps skin healthy and supple while preventing acne. It is recommended to extract those comedones once a week in a SAFE manner. Having a trained professional perform extractions allows a variety of angles and techniques. I also have tools and machines that open pores, hydrate the skin to make it flexible, liquefy impacted material, and protect the surrounding skin while comedones literally slide out.

#8 I LOVE What I Do! I am passionate about your skin and love working with it! I love learning more and putting to use the information I have in making your skin look the best it possibly can!

#7 Not Just For Women! Too many men grow up still washing their face with bar soap and water, wishing their skin was different, yet clueless how to solve it. They still neglect their skin and feel ashamed and embarrassed about their appearance. Facials are not“girly” treatments. EVERYONE deserves to feel comfortable and attractive in their own skin. No one thinks to educate teenage boys how to reduce acne or not to pick. Any age group, any gender, any race will benefit from learning totake care of their skin.

#6 Specialized Products! No skin is exactly the same, and no client has the same goals for their skin. That is why a quality esthetician will meet you, talk with you, and learn about you before the procedure so the very best choice of products can be chosen. There is a reason why every good product line has choices and ways to adapt products to individuals and their skin care goals. Your skin receives pampering and ingredients applied just for it!

#5 Massage Isn’t Just For Relaxation! Massage techniques have a variety of purposes. Not only does a massage loosen muscles and lower heart rate and blood pressure (that brings you into a deep state of relaxation!), it can actually heal your skin! Massage stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation and boosts your immune system. It delivers more nutrients to your skin and removes more waste. It can stimulate collagen and elastin to form in the dermis and plump the skin back to healthy levels. It can reactivate the microcurrent impulses in the skin to reduce or prevent sagging skin. Even just a facial massage can work acupuncture meridians to relieve tension, blockages, or imbalances in the entire body. It can even help exfoliate dead skin, loosening acneic debris, or it help drive beneficial, moisturizing ingredients deeper. If you have never had a facial massage, you have no idea what you’re missing!

#4 Because You Can! Many people are afraid of the expense of ‘extras’ like spa treatments, luckily I’m affordable. Especially in a tough economic situation, taking care of our skin is considered an unnecessary expense. Many product lines found in grocery stores feed off of the fear, selling you quick-fixes that don’t actually fix anything. They use cheap fillers that fill your pores with gunk, and ingredients that dry your skin out, insuring you will be back for more soon! They don’t want you to know facials can be the least expensive items on a spa menu! Truly beneficial product lines do not need fillers, and they will last longer than store bought items. Taking care of your skin may cost a little more up front, but it is less than you think and will cost you less in the long term. *Check out my specials: http://shinebeautifully.me/thelilsparoom/specials

#3 Create A Plan! The things we can do in the treatment room are only half of the success of your skin. The other half is a great home-care regime. It is hard to know exactly what to do at home, by yourself, and be the only one celebrating your success! With an esthetician, you have someone as equally excited and invested in your skin as you are! You will have a plan that we can decide together that fits your life, preferences, and skin perfectly! I want to be your partner in creating healthy skin for you!

#2 A Spiritual Experience! Facials involve a lot of physical touch, which can initiate a bond between esthetician and pamperee. The positioning of an esthetician at the head of the bed puts the esthetician’s solar plexus chakra in alignment with the clients crown chakra, creating a unique flow of energy between each life force. A great esthetician realizes this exchange and utilizes it to benefit each person they work with. I like to bring peace, love, and self-fulfillment to my clients, receiving their worries and returning the energy with feelings of confident and peace. There is no greater reward or benefit to my life than to make a new friend and feel them feeling beautiful, powerful, and calm.

#1 YOU DESERVE IT!!! Seriously, when did you last do something to feel good about yourself? That pair of sensible flats you bought to wear to work every day does NOT count. Taking care of yourself, or more importantly, FEELING good about yourself is VITAL to your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. You cannot hope to lead a healthy life if you do not take a few minutes to breathe. Let someone else pamper you. Give your brain a chance to catch up to you! The first step to healing the world is to take care of you first! Hope to hear from you soon! ~April

Stood With You

I’ve stood with you on the ocean, enjoying the tranquil sounds of the sea.
I’ve stood with you in a forest, watching the sun set in the fall.
I’ve stood with you in the desert, against the winds of the strongest sandstorm.
And even though wherever I may stand with you is in my dreams, They are my dreams
and in them you are mine too.

Don’t

Don’t *ucking tell me you love me when your soul is black and your mind is a gutter for filth.
Don’t *ucking talk to me like I’m a naive child believing every lie you speak.
Don’t *ucking say you wanna be with me when your eyes are like spinning tops watching every feminine presence walk by. Don’t *ucking blame me for your sadness and insecurities when you have others feeding your ego.
Don’t *ucking come back to haunt me when you barely even noticed I was living when you were.

Blind Dating Tips

In many ways blind dating is no different than any other type of dating. The basic elements of dating still exist but you do need to exercise more caution in a blind date. Like any other date you want a blind date to go well so that you can ensure yourself a second date. However, while it is important to exercise caution in all types of dating it’s even more important in blind dating. Another factor unique to blind dating is getting set up with a great date. While this may not always be in your hands there are some ways that you can take some initiative in this area. Like any date the key to a blind date is setting yourself up for a second date. Arranging a fun date and being interesting to your date are two keys to achieving a second date. In making conversation on a blind date, it is important to take an interest in what your date has to say. Doing this will let them know that you are interested in getting to know them better. Also, try speaking about subjects that you really enjoy. This will make you not only sound more natural but will also make you sound more interesting.

Dressing to impress is also critical to a blind date. In meeting someone for the first time you will want to ensure that you make a good first impression. You don’t always know how much a blind date already knows about you but it doesn’t hurt to show up for the date looking as though you have put a great deal of effort into your appearance. You’re date will appreciate the effort and be flattered by your going out of your way to impress them. One key factor to blind dating is to exercise caution in meeting your date. Even if you are being set up by a close friend you can’t be positive that they know the person they are setting you up with very well. It’s best to set up an initial meeting in a well lit and populated location. Never agree to meet someone you don’t know at a secluded location. While your blind date may be a wonderful person with no intentions of hurting you, it’s best to exercise caution on a blind date.

Another factor unique to the blind dating situation is getting yourself set up with a great date. You may have several friends that are interested in setting you up with a friend or relative whom they think is just perfect for you but try not to agree to go on a blind date that is set up by someone who doesn’t know you very well. If they don’t know you well, then don’t trust them to choose a date for you. However, if you have a friend who does know you very well, don’t hesitate to drop hints about what you are looking for in a date. Those who know you best are most likely to set you up with a compatible blind date. Making an honest effort to have a good time on your date is another tip that can lead to a successful blind date. If you go into a blind date with the attitude that things won’t work out, you will most likely unconsciously put a damper on the date. Your date may sense your lack of enthusiasm and in turn won’t be inspired to put an effort into having a good time either.

Another tip for blind dating is to be sure to end the date appropriately. Many people may recommend that when going on a blind date you have a backup plan in place such as having a friend call you shortly after the date starts to give you an excuse to leave if things aren’t going well but doing this just isn’t right. Instead extend your blind date the same common courtesy that you would any other date and be willing to complete the entire date. If neither party is having a good time, it’s acceptable to end the date early and just agree that you weren’t compatible but don’t be too quick to give up on the date. Also, at the conclusion of the date be honest about your feelings towards your date. If things just didn’t work out, don’t be afraid to let them know instead of offering empty promises of future dates. However, if you truly enjoyed your date, let your partner know and take the opportunity to suggest a second date. Bringing a friend along is another tip for blind dating. This is helpful for a couple of reasons. First if your blind date had any malicious intentions towards you, having a friend along is likely to spoil his plan. Secondly a friend may be able to ease the tension and break the ice by getting the conversation started. While the addition of an extra person on a date may seem awkward, having them there can provide emotional spirit and an additional comfort level.

Even if the date is going well, another tip for blind dating is to end the date after 2-3 hours. This is an adequate amount of time for two people to get to know each other on a date and determine whether or not they would be interested in a second date. Blind dates that last longer than this often reach a point where the couple runs out of things to talk about and the date can stagnate leaving a negative feeling at the end of the date. Keeping the date short can help you to end the date on a positive note and will leave you with more to talk about on a second date. Being yourself is important on any date but it’s critical on a blind date. A blind date deals with someone who does not know you so it’s important to give them a true sense of yourself on your date. You may get away with pretending to be something you are not on the first date but it may lead to trouble in future dates as your date realizes you were phony on the first date.

Finally, treat your blind date with the same courtesy that you would any other date. You may not know the person you are dating but it is important to arrive on time, be polite and put an honest effort into the date. Your blind date is just as deserving of these courtesies as any other person you have dated. A blind date is no excuse to let your manners lapse and mistreat your date. For the most part blind dating does not differ from any other dating situation. However, there are a few things unique to blind dating of which you should be aware. Most importantly it is critical that you not put yourself in danger by agreeing to meet a blind date in a secluded location. Another unique aspect of the blind date is that you are often set up by a friend or family member so you have the opportunity to learn what they think would be a suitable match for you. Beyond the specifics related to blind dating, the rules of regular dating still hold true. If you are polite, genuine, fun and interested in your date you will be likely to score a second date.

Bad Weather Indoor Date Ideas

Knowing a few indoor date ideas for a rainy day is a great way for you and your partner to still have a great time, rain or shine. These rainy day date ideas are also great ideas you can use year round. Here are some romantic rainy day date ideas to try the next time the weather forecast has you stuck indoors.

Go skating. You and your partner will have fun holding each other’s hands while you make a few laps around the rink, even if neither of you are very good at skating.

Go bowling. Bowling is a great way to talk with each other and have a little competitive fun. You can pretend to be serious bowlers or request bumper lanes if you’re a little rusty.

Be bookworms. A book store is the perfect place for a rainy day date. You can check out stores that sell new books or visit a few shops that have used and rare books. You’ll learn a lot about your partner’s interests as you look through the different book titles. Don’t forget to stop for coffee at a local café or coffee shop afterwards!

Play board games, cards or puzzles. You can have a blast playing card games or board games like Monopoly. You can also always stop at the store if you have some extra cash and pick out a new game together just for the occasion. If you’re not a huge fan of board games, you can always opt to do a puzzle together instead.

Go bargain hunting. Visit resale shops, thrift stores, antique dealers, or indoor flea markets and see what kinds of odd and unusual things you can find together. You don’t even need to buy anything with this rainy day date idea to still have fun!

Cook up a Romantic Dinner. If you don’t feel like going out, try making dinner together at home instead. A few candles and some music playing in the background can make a simple dinner like spaghetti seem romantic.

Have an indoor picnic or camp. Grab your blankets and picnic basket and have a fun picnic on your living room floor. You can also set up a tent inside your house if it is big enough and you and your partner can snuggle and nap together while you listen to the raindrops on the roof.

Get crafty. Crafts are always a great way to stay entertained on a rainy day. Get out the crayons, markers, finger paints, glue and paper and spend some time together making things. It doesn’t really matter what you make as long as you both enjoy it. You can always Google easy craft ideas.

Head to the museums. A rainy day is a perfect time to brush up on history, admire classic art pieces, or learn more about science.

Find a pool hall. This one’s always fun for to laugh at how bad the other one is or pretending to be pros and calling the shots.

Get your video games. This can be a fun way to spend some time together on a rainy day. You can either visit your local arcade, rent a few video games to play for your current system, or drag out your original Nintendo or Atari. Just remember to stick to the 2 player games – it can get boring for the other person if they are just watching you play the whole time.

Have a movie marathon. Either rent a few movies from the video store or order a few from your cable provider. Make sure you have the popcorn and some blankets ready and turn the lights off to make it even better than going to the theater. You choose certain themes, actors, or catch up on your favorite television series to make it more of a “marathon”.

Have a photo shoot. You can be as serious or as silly as you want to be taking pictures of each other around the house. Find some unusual items, ugly sweaters or old Halloween costumes and start snapping away to a good time. You can go all out with lights and backdrops if you are able to. When you’re done taking the pictures, you can play around with them with your favorite photo editing software to make them black and white, sepia, or add other effects.

Pretend you are interior designers and choose a room for a make-over. See what you can accomplish without spending any money using things you already have in your house or rearranging furniture. It can be a fun time together digging through the basement or garage for new things to decorate with.

Go to a play or other live performance. Whether you’re into music, theater, or comedy clubs, going out to a performance is great form of rainy day entertainment. Your local newspaper can be a great source of information for current shows and venues.
