Use Nature As A Source of Inspiration

Clients often have a difficult time narrowing down their choices for color when decorating.  Either they “love” too many colors, or they are just unsure which ones go well together and which ones express their personality the best.  What is actually the easiest step in the process appears to be which colors they do not like at all.  You can double the complexity of the project if your client is a couple.

How To Care For Your Sensitive Skin

Dr. G. Todorov, “Skin is a dynamic system whose condition and properties depend on temperature, hydration, environment and other factors. Therefore, the skin’s ability to absorb topically chemicals can vary greatly.”

I have sensitive skin. I have to be careful what I do to it or it could be red or blotchy for days or have sudden breakouts. One of the difficulties with sensitive skin is that it can be hard to pinpoint just what makes it so sensitive and why it behaves the way it does. It could be poor digestion, thyroid issues, allergies, genetics, or toxins. If you currently have sensitive skin, you will need to practice good skin care techniques.  Make sure you wash your face daily, using a good cleanser then use a moisturizer with SPF protection.

Dry, patchy, scaly, itchy skin.  At some point in our life, we all have this condition to some degree.  Dry skin can happen anywhere on the body.  Fortunately, if you suffer from dry facial skin, there are ways to combat it.  If you currently have dry skin, you’ll be happy to learn that your skin care regimen needn’t be a complicated multi-step process.  It actually could be as simple as a good moisturizer to make dry skin a thing of the past. And, don’t forget the sunscreen!

If you have tried to moisturize your skin so it will be soft and supple, but your nose and chin get too oily, causing an acne breakout, you might have combination skin. If you use scrubs and toners to try to control the oil and find that your cheeks become so parched that you look much older, you have combination skin. When you have combination skin, your main goal is to balance it out.  You want to keep the dry areas moisturized and your more oily areas relatively dry. The result is worth the extra bit of attention.  Make sure you wash your face daily, using a good cleanser then use a moisturizer with SPF protection.
