The Hot Mess Report

Hey I just met you... and this is crazy. But here's my face mask, so try it maybe?!

"Best Face Mask 2011"
Before you came into my life, I missed ya' so bad!
I woke up in the mood to do a face mask. I also woke up with "Call Me Maybe" stuck in my head but that's neither here nor there. All this summer sun exposure has my skin looking err, well, let's just say it: a hot mess. Anyway, I am happy to report the result of my face mask is: my skin feels invigorated, tightened, and generally looks brighter and my pores look great. Direct from Elemis, this is what they say about their award winning face mask:

"The natural exfoliating fruit enzyme action of Papaya and Pineapple smooth, brighten and clarify the complexion. This unique, non-granular exfoliating cream contains nourishing Milk Protein, Anti-Oxidant-rich Vitamin E and Marine algae to moisturise, repair and protect the skin. Perfect for complexions which are sensitive or mature."

Any who, I get tons of questions on my Retin-A use and I am also happy to report I will be taking pictures so you can see the progress of what Retin-A can do for you cosmetically. Also known for treating acne, retinols also aid in sun damage reversal. If you're a human reading this, every single one of us can agree that the sun causes hyperpigmentation. Feel free to search my blog for other Retin-A related posts. Even though it's Florida and it's almost always summer time here, I've got to draw the line somewhere and start faux- tanning again as I know exactly what damage I'm doing to my skin. I'm a firm believer in sunscreen. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, sunscreen. I don't know about you, but I don't want to end up looking like "Tanning Mom." Click here for her latest antics. In her defense, if someone hosted me a "Hot Mess" party held by drag queens, I'd probably try to drown my sorrows in some Captain Morgan, too. I mean, she shouldn't of even shown up if she were embarrassed. Hey, at least it's an improvement that she didn't have her five year old with her this time. I also don't believe she was rocking the dark brown lip liner either. Stay tuned for "What Not to Wear on Your Face" Edition coming to this blog real soon. If you've got some makeup pet peeves to add to the list, I can't wait to hear from you. Comment! Tweet! Facebook, Google+, whatever!

I don't use Retin-A all the time. In my opinion, why waste the money in the summertime? Get your tan on for a few months and then spend your entire fall correcting it. Sounds about right, ehh?!

So, now my face will go from actually being tan to a bronzed bliss made up of smoke and mirrors. Us females, we are fabulous, transforming creatures.

But all we really want to tell the world is this:

Makeup makes me feel good. When I put it on, I feel a little more ready to take on the world. Now when I look in the mirror, I say thank you to my makeup for making me match on the outside, how I feel about myself on the inside.
