The Lost Card
So, I had spent quite a bit of time making a very elaborate card detailing skin care routines. When I went to finish it, it had mysteriously vanished, and not even the help of the amazing @marshalledgar and @Helixx could bring it back. Which gave me the idea to theme it, and changed the thought behind it.
What kind of benefits do you get from your routine?
Refined pores? Age prevetion? Fine lines blurred and erased? Oil control?? The list is endless. The main message I hear and read everyday from people across the nation is "I want to feel pretty." So, what exactly makes us feel pretty? Is it the $84.00 price tag on our Super Line Preventor Xtreme Serum? That amazing glow and suppleness from Advanced Night Repair? I think it is simply the routine itself.
Some days, by the time I get home, I feel just tryannical (get it? haha...yeah I know). Going into the bathroom, closing the door, and beginning my face routine is the most calming thing in the world. Not counting a bottle of Jose, and a full boil bath. The moment I touch the make-up remover to my skin, I start to feel calm. Something about going through the motions makes me feel completely at peace, focused and centered. Why though?

It makes me feel pretty. I cleanse and tone, begin my layers, and I start to feel that glimmer of joy shine through. Why does it make me feel that way? Because it's the one thing I do every single day that is all about me, for me, by me. My routine has been peiced together, bit by bit, layer by layer, by me. I made it just for me. I do it just for me. It's 180% pure selfish...and I LOVE it.

In the morning, I wake up feeling like a dinosaur, again, but the moment I have my face time, I feel like I can wrestle a triceratops and win. This self-love is so much more of a benefit than anything else the products can offer. This feeling of "I am pretty" is the confidence booster. The reaffirmation that I am worth it, and I can so totally do it. I totally wish I could share that feeling with every person, and paint the world with that little glow of happiness. Cheezy, but the best way I could describe it. That brings me to my question, because I really want to know:
