Ellen, Oprah, Is it Too Good to Be True?
I've often heard that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. I agree.
Like the phone call my husband received on the weekend announcing he had just won $3.5 million in a raffle. Well, of course there was no raffle and the scam required a payment of $2500 to claim the prize. But he was much too smart to fall for that one!
What about that cruise I just won? Except that it requires me to fly to Florida at my expense, pay for a bunch of other things (blah, blah, blah - I tuned out) and listen to a high pressure sales presentation. No thanks!
Then there's the email about the $1 million inheritance I can receive from overseas, I just have to send $10,000 to help get the money into Canada. Delete!
There's also an amazing skin care regimen out there being supported by certain celebrities (and their airbrushed photos). It's simple and you can get some "free" samples to try it out...but they aren't really free, if you don't return them after your 2 week trial, you are charged for them and added to the companies "autoship" so you get a new batch every month at a cost of $150 or more. Really?
So, when it comes to your skin, ignore the empty promises and "too good to be true" miracle fixes! Your skin is always changing, new cells are born and older cells are dying all the time. The real "secret" to great skin is to take care of it, all the time. Twice a day. Don't use soap, cleanse, exfoliate regularly, mask regularly, hydrate always, use sunscreen, keep your hands off! That's the basic idea but I love helping my clients get the right regime for them.
With a great system of home care for your skin type, you are ready (if you choose) to pursue advanced facial treatments that will really help reduce the signs of aging, sun damage, broken capillaries, or acne. It's not one miracle cream or potion, it's a system. It takes commitment. IPL Skin Solutions, Microdermabrasion and Customized Facials can enhance your at-home regimen and will help you feel great about the skin you're in! And that's not too good to be true!
