Sometime last week I had a facial, my friend mentioned it and we were gonna go together. Didn’t work out. So I scheduled one on my own. I went for an express facial, mind you I haven’t had a facial in over 5 years. I didn’t remember much of what they did but it felt good.
I have been tanning because I am in New England and there is no warmth from the sun and I just moved here from California. So tanning makes me feel really good. But after tanning a few days and several years of old skin, I was due for a facial. I could feel it.
I went to GLOW, here in York Maine. Amazing place. Everyone who works there is amazing and super friendly and kind. I went in and met Darcy. She gave me an express facial for 30 minutes which I feel was more like 45 mins. So as she is doing her thing I ask her a bunch of questions.
“What can I do in between facials and how often should do people get facials?” She offered several suggestions. Apparently people get facials anywhere from twice a month to every change of season. She suggested I use a fruit enzyme mask and something pumpkin. I didn’t remember what she said exactly. I asked her where I can purchase such things, she said any natural health food store. There happens to be one in Kittery, called Rising Tide Natural foods. Cute little shop. While I was in there perusing for my pumpkin stuff and enzyme mask I found amazing Rose Oil from NOW. Wow that stuff smells exactly like roses. I have been on the hunt for an inexpensive rose oil for years. This is it…it’s called rose absolute. YUMMM
After finding that, I found the isle with all the skin care items. I found the fruit enzyme but they were sold out. Must be good, I thought to myself. Then I saw on the side that they had pumpkin face cream. BOOM! They had something pumpkin, just as prescribed by Darcy. They had a tester out and I tried it. My face was in heaven. However I wanted to buy them both at the same time so I can use them simultaneously.
I went back after the 4 days the lady said the enzyme mask would be there and it still wasn’t there. I had gone to TJ Maxx and Marshals to search for something similar and didn’t find anything, but I still bought a mask anyways. So several days later I go back to the natural food store and there still didn’t have the enzyme mask, so I bought the pumpkin cream. I figured I had a mask so might as well. I picked it up and took it to the counter. The dude rang it up and said aloud, $29.89. I made one of those you have got to be kidding me faces and said “whoa!” I never looked at the price. I looked down and said, “my face LOVES it, I must honor my face!”.
So I bought it happy joyous and free. My face is super happy and every time I put it on my face thanks me. Self Care…That’s what that’s about. Real Talk.
Moral of the story is, whenever my body wants or needs something, I will listen and take good care of her. Because we only have one body in this lifetime to have. And I am only getting younger!!!
