In Search of . . . Luminous Skin

Last Friday my sister-in-law and I spent a wonderfully relaxing day at Burke Williams Spa in Orange. I can not tell you what good it did my body, face, and psyche!!! I do not visit the spa often, but I have vowed to change that. During my visit I had the “Spa Style Facial,” which was my very first facial. I must say that I am H-O-O-K-E-D!!! My aesthetician, Kim, was one of the nicest, people I have ever met. She was uber-knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging. She even diagnosed an existing problem I had been having with my foot since the birth of my daughter! Anyway, armed with the knowledge she gave me, I re-embarked on my journey to luminous, blemish free skin. The image above represents my finish line. Just a little “visual” to keep my goal freshly in view.

On a side note, while I was searching for the credit for this image, I discovered that this is not even a real human being!! This image was created by The Ultimate Face a blog that compiles the features of different faces to, as they put it, “make one ultimate face.” Wow. This proves a point that is very close to my heart: Playing The Comparison Game is not an option!! As women, we really have to look within and find happiness and acceptance from ourselves first. It is always okay to invest in yourself by learning new things, strengthening your weaknesses and refining yourself, but to truly excel, you must love yourself first, and build on that.

Per The Ultimate Face, this image is a combination of: Jasmine Tookes as the base, Sui He’s eyes, Jasmine Tookes’ nose and Jourdan Dunn’s mouth. Ladies, take note: It took 3 professional models to make this face . . .
