Preparation 


(I would smile but the mud would start cracking.)

I have something booked for next week which I will do a post on later. What this post is about is getting camera ready. Featured in this photo is a “Fango Mud Therapy” sample mask by Jor’El Parker. (The DC/Marvel references are not lost on me.) I got it by way of a subscription to Ipsy. My face had a major break out due to stress and transitioning of my skin care. It was a total mess and I needed a fix so my face would not look jacked up on camera. Prior to working in human resources and working at the bar, I used to work in retail selling cosmetics. I’m a bit of a product junkie and I try many things to see what works on my skin. (Prior to working in cosmetics, I never wore make-up or was particularly girly and glamorous. I was definitely more of a Tomboy.)

Even though I was a Tomboy, I still had acne issues and tried to keep some sort of a skin care regime. This has served me well in the anti-aging department (I’m 33 currently.) Right now I’m in a weird place between using hardcore anti-aging and anti-acne skin care. My face does not know what it wants to do at the moment. Like either be dry and wrinkly or oily and pimply; pick a stuggle dammit! 

A couple of things I also need to add to the list of preparation is:

•Touching up my roots because they are looking a little silver.

•Shaping up my brows.

•Eye cream (always!)

•Teeth Whitening treatment.

•Wax, wax, wax!

•Continue to train my naturally tight, curly hair to lay straight and flat for the shoot. 

•Body wraps, lots of water and continue improving my fitness regime. (Story about that later.) 

This will probably not be my only post today as I have a lot on my mind and need to talk about it, but I want to get a power nap in and think about how I’m going to write it in the meantime.
