Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.
Margaret D. Nadauld
I have a confession to make. I never had a professional facial until I got to use the spa after my surgery. It was wildly indulgent, and something I can easily replicate at home.
To start, I use St Ives Apricot scrub. Love, love, love this product. Its my secret weapon to keeping my skin looking fresh and young. Exfoliate my skin, and it gets ready for step two, which is steaming things open.
I have a facial spa, and it gets a lot of gunk out of my pores.
After I am done, I use witch hazel to freshen my skin before I move onto the next step.
Another product I love are the Freeman line of facial masks.
I put my mask, lay back with a few cucumber slices over my eyes, and relax for about 15 or so minutes.
To wash off the mask, I use Aveeno radiant scrub.
I finish off with serum and I feel like a princess.
My daily indulgence to keep the princess feeling alive is spraying my face with rose water (you can find it in an health store).
Ancient beauty secret that works wonders today!
Ani DiFranco is an absolute rock star on so many levels. She started her own label to put out her own music, on her own terms. Even though her music isn't punk in sound, its punk in attitude. Rock on!
