Amazing New Anti-Aging Results!

Makeup Artist label

Oh My… I am so EXCITED about the NEW Night Pak from SeneGence that I’ve been geeking out and reading everything I can about collagen and what it does or doesn’t for our skin. So if you want to geek out with me, read on! (Spoiler Alert: Special Offer at the end 😉 )

Only our skin, meaning mammal skin, can make collagen in the deepest layers. Collagen is a topical treatment unless your own skin produces it. Topically applied collagen will help lock moisture into the skin.

Night Pak by SeneGence and other “legit” collagen products should be applied at night, when the skin is at rest and thus the collagen can protect and promote your skin’s elasticity. When you wash the product off, you are removing the collagen ingredient.

As we age, our natural ability to make our own collagen decreases, thus the frenzied marketing about the ingredient. We all need it, but how do we get more of these important building blocks of youthful skin?  You can’t drink it or take supplements that give you collagen; the digestive system breaks it down and it doesn’t help the skin. However a diet rich in Omega-3 has been proven to help promote your body’s collagen production.

There are three different approaches in skincare to promote collagen production:

  • Scrubs— referred to as a scrub because it “exercises” your skin. Increased blood flow to the skin does help cell renewal. This is why facials are beneficial. I promote gentle loving on your face (without a washcloth) every night. A gentle, circular motion with your fingertips will increase circulation.
  • Retinol/Vitamin A derivative, often called Retin-A – this stops the forward march of collagen degradation and promotes collagen production. In independent clinical labs, our skincare products with SenePlex Complex promotes collagen synthesis by 168%, which is 166% more than Retinol and 158% more than Lactic Acid! Yay super cool!
  • Fillers offer fabulous, quick and visible results, but they break down the lower levels of your skin over time, causing permanent damage.

Here are some of the amazing facts about SeneGence Night Pak:

  • Most collagens are animal-based. Ours is not! It is plant-based marine collagen. The marine-based collagen is very rare. The swirls in the product are the SenePlex.
  • Night Pak strengthens your skin’s natural collagen matrix. SeneGence Night Pak has layered collagen to fill in those creases, lines and wrinkles with a marine-based collagen, not animal-based.
  • Night Pak is layered with SenePlex, which increases cell renewal by 23.3%. SenePlex Complex has been scientifically proven in a lab and on thousands of women. It is broken down molecularly so it can penetrate into your skin and offer results like 55.7% reduction of wrinkles!

As always, SeneGence products are a better value than the competition when you look at our ingredients, scientific results and how long the products last— we really are in a league of our own!

Most women just want to know: does it work? Yes it does! You can watch this great video to learn more about it.

All of our skincare lasts over 6 months. So why am I excited about a product that only lasts 2 months? I’m so proud about the price point. Although it’s more than our other products, it’s so much less than similar products on the market. In my research I couldn’t find any other product with marine collagen for less than $110 a month – and of course none of those have SenePlex. Night Pak is only $42.50 a month! When you decide to subscribe to auto ship (you won’t want to run out of this!) you will get free shipping and you will get a FREE bottle every year!

Missing Tooth

WARNING, pictures of my dental surgery are below.

Makeup Artist label

 

 

I admit it, I love my wiggle tooth, but I didn’t always.

When I was nine I knocked out my front three teeth, and the excessive dental work began.  I hated the gap, it made it so obvious what missing and what was so clearly wrong with me.  The funny thing is that those feelings of inadequacy were really coming from me, and not from others.  Sure, kids teased me, but what made the situation worse was how I handled it.  In my book How to Embrace Your Inner Hotness I teach how to get over self-taunts and about how to change the perceptions of ourselves to see the radiant women we really are.

I’ve learned in my nearly 20 years of working with women in beauty, that we all have an area, feature, or something we just don’t like about ourselves.  Yes, there are makeup tricks that can minimize facial features to bring out our best; but I really love helping women see how beautiful they really are, and helping them start the real work—seeing themselves differently.  I can meet with you one-on-one through Skype.  I am here to help you see that you are far hotter than you think you are!

Through helping other women, I actually got so good at changing my perception that I LOVE my wiggle tooth!  I’m not saying that I want to have a retainer with a tooth attached my whole life… but then again, maybe I do!  The tooth is such a relatable subject and always an instant icebreaker.  I often joke that “I am soooo HOT, I don’t need all my teeth!”  It is funny– I like funny.   But Mr. Greene doesn’t love it so much… I guess when he takes his wife out a on a Oral Surgery romantic date, he would like to look across the table at a full toothed smile.  It’s particularly annoying to him because we have already paid to have it repaired, and I’m putting it off because it’s so funny.  I guess I can see his point of view on this.

So, on October 16th, I reluctantly dragged myself to the oral surgeon.  I was so sad—not only would my adorable toothlessness be gone, but I knew it was going to hurt.  I’m not really one who thinks being drilled on is fun.  With that said, I firmly believe in choosing to have fun in any situation — here in this picture with the drill head attached to the recently placed implant.

I would like to point out that my lip color survived all of this with grace— meaning it stays on like a rock star!  I forgot to take pictures that night of my still perfect makeup because I was high—you know, legally drugged up—since it really hurts to get drilled on.  The important thing that every girl IMG_0079needs coming out of oral surgery is to know that her makeup is still there and looking awesome.  I can help with you with that part, but the missing-tooth hotness, you will have to take care of on your own.  I can show you how to bring out your best without looking like you tried too hard.  If you want amazing skin, and want to know where to put your makeup and the right colors just for you that stay looking perfect all day until you take it off— I can help with that.Tooth X-ray

As for my tooth, in four months, after the bone heals around the implant, I will get a new set of not-as-hot-though-very-expensive-teeth.  I firmly believe that Mr. Greene will miss the wiggle tooth.  Although, if we’re being completely honest… probably not.

The Three P’s of Putting Your Wardrobe Together Perfectly

I was just on TV… it was a lot of fun! Nineveh, from Fox 13, was great at putting me at ease in front of the camera, she is very easy to talk too. Check out the video here:

The problem was it was too fast!! I didn’t get to share everything I wanted to say and ohhh do I have a lot to say on the subject!!! Proper fit is one of those things that I love to teach. It doesn’t matter how high quality your clothes are, how perfect the color is or how trendy they are IF THEY DON’T FIT RIGHT!

Proper fit of your clothes will make them AND you look better!! A great beginning guideline, if it is too tight, you can’t move naturally!

People say to dress for success; I say to dress for fit! Dress for the fit of your amazing beautiful body and to fit your life. And with a fit that you can move and feel comfortable… of course comfort in clothing is not to be rational for living in yoga pants.

So, what are the Three P’s of putting your Wardrobe together Perfectly?

1) Plan:

You walk into the store and the clerk asks you “May I help you”. You had been trying desperately to avoid eye contact! Now it’s awkward, what do you say to not be rude but not encourage them to try to assist you as you shop? It’s pretend you accidentally ended up in the store, “saying no I’m just looking”  acting half interested and head back to the clearance racks.
You then may load up with some items try them on and buy something you talked yourself into. When you get home you introduce your new purchase to the rest of your clothes and find that they don’t HANG out together!! It may or may not go with your other clothes and you’ll never wear it. The cycle of victim shopping starts again.

Ladies you gotta have a plan!!! Know what do you need and or want BEFORE you go to the store! You don’t have to go to the store like Rain Man repeating brown skirt, need brown skirt, brown.. need… but understand what makes you look and feel your best.

You know that clerk you have been trying to avoid… they actually know what is in their store, you CAN and SHOULD ask them!! It part of the Power shopping notebook I will teach you in another post!

So ask yourself before you leave to shop what you want. Tell your girlfriends what you are in search of, they will help you in your quest!  Now you have the clerk and your friends helping you look.

*Hint from the power shopping notebook– gather pics before you go so you can not only describe what you are looking for but can show the picture to the clerk. And we make fun of men for not asking for directions!!

2) Purpose:

Though you may feel like a “human Kleenex” as my friend Jaime Smith said (mother of 5 young kids who always looks good) you can still dress cute. Jamie would argue this, but we seldom see our own beauty like we see it in others. We are so hard on ourselves.  (There Jaime I publicly called you out! You a hot mama!)  Moms dress differently than the bank manager, than the makeup artist or the CEO or the mechanic.  Yes, there are chic mechanics.  So what does your purpose for clothes look like? This ties back into your plan. If you pair dry cleaning with yoga pants this is not hottness.  T-shirts with business suits makes the whole outfit look thrown together. DO the items of clothing do the same work? Do they send the same message? My kids get it: they call my not work outfits “mom clothes”.  They know at a glance when I am working.  Jeans are not a part of my “work” (which is often my favorite “firewalker” shirt comfy for use and reminds me of when I literally walked on fire! I will tell you all the story in another post). My “mom” outfit doesn’t say to a lady ‘trust me to teach you about beauty’.  It says let’s sit on the couch and talk as our kids tear apart my house. Both activities that I love to do.  But the clothes I wear not only tell my kids which hat I am wearing but  they tell the client  that I cared enough to get ready to serve her. To my friend it says I am sitting on the couch totally present in the chic bonding.  How funny would I look if I was at the playground in dry-cleaning only pants, ironed button down shirt and heels? How much trust would I inspire to a client in a t-shirt and jeans? Or to an audience?!  Have you ever seen a speaker show up wrinkled, lazy looking? If that’s the look you want that is fine but I want my audience either on the stage or in life to see that I care, I’m ready!  Don’t you want the same from those around you? Don’t let your clothes block people from taking you seriously in your role, whatever that may be.

Personality:
This is perhaps the most important part.

I love old castles, I loved the opportunity to visit them, and see them in pictures. The architecture of the castle would be built with the idea of intimidation, grandeur or protection. Think of the castle with the high thick walls, mote and little window slits– built to protect what is inside.
When we dress in baggy clothes, not showing any of our shape we are not showing us. When we wear dirty, torn clothes we are telling people we don’t care. Then we are hurt and angry when they don’t care for us. It doesn’t take money to look clean and put together. When I was putting my husband through Law school we had the miracle of welcoming our first child. My waistline grew out of my clothes and I had no money, nada, to buy me clothes that fit my new beautiful shape. What I made went to support silly things like $1300 a month in New England rent, food, insurance and preparing for baby. I shopped second hand following my Power Notebook Plan and looked good enough to continue my work teaching at a beauty school, doing the makeup for a wedding or even more ironic teaching busy Boston professionals the art of dress in an outfit that I bought for 25 cents at a garage sale! Clothes are an invitation to others to see us, to get to know us.

Do you dress to intimidate? The absence of clothes is an invitation to see us an object not a brain. Unless you are a football player, a jouster or in the military or other profession your clothes do not need to have a protective role! Dressing nice and showing respect for you doesn’t mean making others feel less for themselves. This topic could be its own blog post! Dress to represent what you do but not to yield power. I like to dress nice to honor my purpose and to be approachable to welcome people to get to know my personality, to get to know me. I dress in my own style, with some trends but I have my own way that I feel most comfortable for what my life purpose is. I dress the way I do because I like how I look, I invite you to ask yourself of the clothes you have how many of them are a reflection of you? Do you feel like you when you wear them? Or do you feel like you are trying to copy someone else? Are you being your best you or what you perceive another’s best to be? Dress to suit your personality not someone else’s. Just make sure that it fits you right!!!! My mom dresses in prairie skirts which are really a copy of Navajo style. She loves them, she has them in every color that looks good on her. It’s her style, matching her personality and her interests. Honor you enough to dress like you. I have a friend who always dresses in Vintage clothes. I love to see what she will wear next.  I just happen to know her size so when I am out and see something that is totally her I can pick up and send it to her helping her in her clothing quest!

Dress in the grandeur of what makes you beautiful. Showcase the treasures of your beautiful strength. Your clothes should be a representation of your personality. They shouldn’t be placing walls between others to understand who you are and remember the absence of clothes is an invitation to see us an object not a brain.

Clearly I couldn’t say all of this on TV! But I am excited to share my content and skills with an audience in other segments with Channel 13!

Thanks again for having me Fox 13!
