Ready for the Holidays?
Are you ready for the holidays? I am certainly trying to get there. Have I started shopping for gifts for my friends and family? Not exactly. Have I began to make sure my skin is clear and glowing and ready to be kissed under the mistletoe, YES!! Thankfully, I work for Dr. Conkright and have Martha (AKA-the skin guru) available to help me with all the details, and there are A LOT! Year round I use the Obagi Nu-Derm System that we sell in our office, which by the way is the CADILLAC of skin care systems. However, I must tell you that recently Jan Marini Skin Research has came out with two AMAZING new products that I L-O-V-E!! The Pumpkin Spice Holiday Exfoliator is DELISH!! No, I have not eaten it, but when I use it to exfoliate my skin, I can't help but wish it is Thanksgiving Day and I am eating pumpkin pie. I have been using this product 2 or 3 times a week for the past month and my skin feels great. The other new product is a sun screen/MIRACLE CREAM! The Physical Protectant SPF 45 is slightly tinted leaving a sheer, matte finish and acts as a primer for makeup. So, not only does this product give my skin a healthy glow, it provides a smooth canvas for me to apply my makeup, AWESOME! A good skin care regimen is only half of my battle. I have been told that I have very dynamic facial features. Which to me means, I have what looks like an accordion sometimes on my forehead, and parentheses lines around my mouth. This is were Botox and Juvederm XC made by Allergan come into play. Fortunately for me Martha Hahus, the Clinical Nurse Coordinator, has been injecting since the early 2000's and because of her expertise my skin is smooth and full in all the right places. So, again I ask you, are you ready for the holidays? If this blog makes you rush to the mirror, then the answer is NO. If you have any questions about any of the products I have mentioned, please call me and I can give you the 411 on those as well as anything else we provide here at Conkright Aesthetics.
