here's a little ditty about skin...



we have this book (look left) at my work, written by the doctor who injects the most botox of anyone in the world. i have been picking it up and reading through it lately and it is so good. it's not just about botox, it's like an encyclopedia for everything that you can put on / do to your skin. i thought i'd share two wonderful ideas out of it for you.

1. if your eyes need a little tlc, whether it be dark circles or puffiness, take two green tea bags, soak them in ice water, then apply them to your eyes for ten minutes every morning. you will thank me. not only does it help immediately with the appearance, but green tea is one of the best things you can put on your skin. it is loaded with anti-oxidants, which are what kill free radicals, which are what age your skin. excellent.

2. i have not tried this one yet but plan on it immediately. warm up some milk, and then grind some brown sugar into it. let it cool to room temp and then use on face as a scrub. not only does the sugar act as an exfoliant, but the lactic acid in the milk does as well. can't wait.

if anyone tries them, let me know what you think... and i'll do the same...

I am wondering....do you think the green tea bags would work on sun spots?? I have some brown sun spots/patches on my face that I want to be gone. Would this help? Or do you know of a good remedy/product that would help my skin tone be normal?

stephanie... the thing that would help the most would be photo facials (IPL) for hyperpigmentation... they are pricey but that would be your best bet for actually getting rid of the spots.
