What Makes Me A Beauty Expert
I have lived my whole life seeking perfection. I wanted to look good but I never quite understood how to accept myself…
I went to Beauty College to be an Aesthetician after high school in hopes of learning the secrets to preserve my youth. I studied the Aesthetician course for skin care. My studies included basic skin care with the understanding of how ingredients in products affect the skin, skin waxing and make-up application. I learned how to apply foundation, eyeliner, eyelashes, and contour the eyes with shadow and the cheeks with blush, using the appropriate cosmetic utensils. I guess I was obsessed back then.
Specialty treatments at the time were Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Glycolic Acid and Enzyme Peels. One of the perks of going to Cosmetology School was being able to sample hundreds of skin care products. All the high end products like Murad, MD Formulation, Yonka, Aveda, Dermalogica were in my beauty bag. I gained a remarkable amount of knowledge about ingredients. It only fueled my fire even more to take care of my skin.
Those skills were a wonderful prerequisite for a career in entertainment. As a Hollywood Actress/Body Double I had to face my insecurities. I had no choice. Every day I had to look in the mirror because that’s how I made a living. Playing dress up every week with the perfect hair, make up & wardrobe didn’t make for good therapy. When the lights & cameras were rolling it was definitely make believe. After the director yelled cut. I would revert back to feeling too thin or too fat. Never feeling beautiful enough. You would think after such success I could accept my Self.
Being a Body Double is a Shadow. I learned so much from my shadow. Everyone that I thought was perfect had their own challenges & struggles. We all were so focused on external beauty that we forgot the foundation…inner beauty.
Then, around two years ago, I was enlightened by the works of scientist Dr. Alexander Schauss and Dr. Nicholas Perricone. It enabled me to delve into the foundation one must build to be truly beautiful…which starts within. The beauty of your cells & a beautiful mindset are far more beneficial than cosmetics or a fancy wardrobe. Now don’t get me wrong. It’s great to have style & a healthy body image but one should not be so obsessed that we forget the underlying significance. I truly feel that we must work the inside just as much as the outside. How beautiful are you from the inside/out?
