Glow For It!


We all want to look our best on a date – especially the first one! Over the past 7 months we have found many things we can DIY – hair color, mani/pedis, eyebrows but keeping your skin in tip top glowing condition with a facialist has not been high on many woman’s priority list.

While we’ve talked to many men – like thousands – about first impressions and online dating, over and over we hear “Her Eyes”, “Her Smile”, “Her Hair” so it’s basically ladies, yes our above the neck gets noticed first! So, maybe we are not all running out to get facials right now but here are a few simple ways to keep that summer glow going during the Fall.

Glow Before You Go:

Here’s a couple of our favorite products that are just amazing for the skin. Note: we ACTUALLY use these products and are not paid for endorsements!


Home Facial – This is one of the best DIY facials on the market and takes no time. How do we know this works? Our baby soft skin after … and our friend who owns a luxe spa here commenting on our skin. You know it is a real compliment when it comes from someone who works with skin daily!

How To Use:

Simply coat your face and neck----then go start dinner or watch you favorite Netflix 30 minute show. A half hour late, you simply peel this from your skin---no burn, just baby soft glowing skin. Use up to 2x a week. Follow up with:



Hyaluronic and Vitamin C Serum – These run the gamut in terms of prices! When applied topically, hyaluronic acid serum can aid the skin in absorbing and retaining water. (You MUST use a moisturizer after the application of these two serums) The ingredient also plumps out wrinkles and fine lines, resulting in smoother, more supple skin. Vitamin C Serum? C15 Super Booster. This concentrated booster with 15% pure vitamin C dramatically brightens uneven skin while improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


How To Use:

Nightly skin routine after cleansing---use two pumps of HA and 3 drops of Vitamin C Serum and mix in your hand palm. Gently pat over skin, neck and décolleté area. These products will run from Amazon deals for $9 to Barbara Sturm’s $300 range.

And now for the Super Product, drumroll please . . . A luxuriously rich cream that thoroughly soothes, moisturizes, and hydrates to help heal away dryness – the La Mer moisturizer that started it all. It is infused with cell-supporting Miracle Broth™, the legendary healing elixir, and the powerful antioxidant lime tea, to help protect against stress and pollution. This product invented de-aging (if this even exists!)

Is it expensive? Very. Is it the best we have found on the market? Absolutely. While we admit to straying to La Prairie, Sisley, Perricone, Chanel, NaturaBisse, Sturm, Lancer – primarily looking for a superior product or L’Oréal, Garnier, Neutrogena, Vichy – looking for a less pricey choice. When you find a good man, you stick with him!


How To Use:

It’s thick! Apply a pea-size amount to your hands, then spend 20-30 seconds warming it up so it spreads beautifully on your face and neck.


TIP: Befriend your La Mer expert at Bloomingdales. They will give you the scoop on promotions for 20% off and some great gifts.
