GET A HANDLE ON ACNE SCARRING (Guest Post)

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Oh no! You spot a pimple. You instantly get into action mode trying to blast it before it grows. Of course that doesn’t work. So now, it’s day two and it’s a full-blown pimple. You try your best not to pick at it but let’s get real. When most people break out, they suddenly become a “DIY dermatologist.” They do whatever is necessary to get rid of the pimple. This typically does more harm than good and oftentimes leads to acne scarring. Adult acne is a cycle of break out, scar, and heal repeated again and again. So now what? What do you do to get rid of the scars?

We spoke to the husband/wife team, Drs. Michael and Jeanmarie Connor, who combined their medical expertise in plastic and reconstructive surgery in the face and neck as well as pediatrics to create Scarology®, a 3-step treatment system with hospital grade ingredients for various kinds of new and existing scars. 

“Acne scarring is a common problem and not everyone has the money to invest in laser resurfacing and other medical treatments. They also don’t have the time to get away from work to see their dermatologist about a pimple. They self treat and thus, self scar,” explains Dr. Jeanmarie Connor.

Dr. Mike Connor adds that there are three different kinds of acne scars. “Hyperpigmentation scars are the darker spots on the skin that appear brown, red or even purple, depending on how dark the skin is. The second type of scars is an atrophic scar. These appear deeper like a pockmark. The last scar type appears as raised bumps on the skin’s surface and are known as hypertrophic scars.” 

Understanding the different kinds of scars can help you navigate scar treatments. There’s a lot available but it can be very costly. According to the National Association of Plastic Surgery, the national average for laser skin resurfacing is between $1100 to about $2200 and that doesn’t include medications and any additional treatments that are typically necessary for optimal results.

There’s also a common skin goal of many women - to ditch the foundation, concealer and powder. They would love to be able to leave the house wearing only moisturizer, mascara, and lip-gloss. So what do you do to heal acne scars when you don’t have thousands of dollars to invest in facials and peels? 

Drs. Michael and Jeanmarie Connor were asked this same question time and time again from their patients who wanted a recommendation for an over-the-counter scar treatment that was safe and effective for kids and adults and one that could be used on any type of scar anywhere on the body. They couldn’t suggest anything on the market so in the absence of a solution; they created one, Scarology. 

Dr. Michael Connor explains that the over the counter remedies you’ll find at drugstores primarily contain either silicone or onion extract alone. “Scarology’s scar cream, is unique because it is formulated with 4 key ingredients that until now, have never been combined together in an over-the-counter cream. Scarology is also different because it contains a daily fruit exfoliator gel that is essential to scar healing. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and allows new healthy skin cells to form which leads to optimal scar healing results.”

Acne scarring is a challenge for both men and women. We recommend that you nip it in the bud from the beginning by starting a scar treatment remedy early on.

About Drs. Michael and Jeanmarie Connor:
Based in Palm Beach, Florida, Dr. Michael and Jeanmarie Connor are the husband and wife MD team who invented Scarology. ® They have a combined twenty years of medical expertise specializing in plastic and reconstructive surgery in the face and neck as well as pediatrics.

Choosing a waist cincher or corset for steampunk western or everyday wear?

Hi ya Gorgeous!
I'm working on a project that has a western steampunk look for the lead character and a slightly modified western punk look for the rest of the cast..

Each have a solid amount of construction and boning that is flexible on the beige waist cincer, though very firm busking on the steam punk corset.

Teni Panosian look with Murad, Pur Minerals and Purador

Hi ya Gorgeous,
And super hello to this Thursday April 14th. It's weird. I think I have like a withdrawal, or a come down, or maybe a lil case of the blues mixed with some mean reds?  The high was so high at Azusa Now. The environment, the people, the worship, the sound, the sight, the prayer and essentially the everything. Now. Here I am. At home. Twiddling my thumbs a bit. Hmm... I'm not one to dwell in a low place, though yesterday and this morning are a bit of a slow start for me.
Sigh.
Going forward...



Today I have a look with some favorite products and a new one!  I'm the biggest Murad fan ever and I'm using the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting shield broad spectrum serum along with Purador Argan Oil and Pur Minerals Air Perfection CC Cushion Foundation to get a look that is Grand Prix ready! (Plus several layers of sunscreen!)

Power Play by Bed Head for Men by TIGI: as used in the undercut

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Oh what a whirlwind! It's so good to be home. There is so much to do to unpack, recalibrate and clean something for gosh sake!

So I am slowly getting back to blogging and life.

This sample came while I was away and I'm enjoying working with my Mancub to get him to use it. He had the most amazing undercut from The Chop Star, my fave hairstylist Star Flores.



Then, the local stylists got a hold of his hair and ruined it! Due to my travel I was unable to get him to Tempe to see Star, so he ended up going to the local coupon cutter and it's awful. Praying it grows out fast.





Now I have this new gel, that's got good hold without being sticky and crunchy that flakes and makes dandruff like litter on his shoulders.



This Tigi BED HEAD gel is just right for those who are wearing the undercut. Which guys, what you need to be wearing right now!

Get this gel at mass retailers everywhere!

And guys, please be wearing the undercut, because it's worth it!

NEW WUNDERBROW on Cara Delevingne at MTV Movie Awards

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Whoa. What a whirlwind of a trip. I'll have some more details on the Azusa Now trip later. As for now, just know that we made it home safely late last night. Got up early and hit the day running!

I did not see any of this award show due to travel, though here are some updates that havebeen shared with me.

I am currently obsessed with eyebrows and styling them-so the chance to check out Wunderbrow is welcomed!



"Brows looking as bold as Cara Delevingne's at the MTV Movie Awards. With WUNDER2's NEW WUNDERBROW, create a perfectly defined brow to compliment the rest of your makeup look".
 
WUNDERBROW: To recreate Cara's sharp, defined brows, apply in direction of hair growth filling in sparse spots with feathery strokes. 
Once desired shape is achieved, soften and distribute by grooming brow upwards and outwards with included spoolie applicator. This will give you a bold brow that will last for 72 hours. ($22)

So stay tuned while I wait for a sample and then....I'll do a YouTube video demonstrating it!

Stay awesome!

Sophia Ruan Gusheé tips for Earth Day and reducing toxic exposures

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Here's a lil share for you for some healthy Earth Day help for you! Remember, every little act you do counts on a global scale. You may feel like it doesn't, but it does! You matter!



Just like our bodies, we are only given one earth.  Making changes in your personal health takes effort and close attention, so it’s no surprise that when attempting to make changes to the Earth’s health similar attention is needed. As the author of A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures, Sophia Ruan Gusheé understands this with mastery.
 
Below 3 Tips from Sophia to boost our Planet’s health this Earth Day:
 
1.       Learn more about proper recycling practices.
·         For instance, did you know that lightbulbs, ceramics, pyrex, and broken glass cannot be recycled at home? That pizza boxes can only be recycled when the spots with grease residue have been discarded? Or that it's perfectly fine to add glossy paper, like junk mail and magazines, to your paper recycling bin?
 
2.       Support the planet's health by eating more plant based meals. Experts say that switching to a vegetarian diet will reduce your carbon footprint more than abandoning your car would!
·         If you're thinking - didn't I recently read that lettuce is worse for the environment than bacon? - Rest assured that when you compare lettuce and bacon pound per pound, and not by calorie, a pound of bacon has six times the carbon footprint than a pound of lettuce, according to the Environmental Working Group.
 
3.       Focus on reducing toxic exposures
·         Industrial chemicals, used to make our consumer product, have been found all over the world - in humans, in wildlife, and in the most pristine corners of the world, and have been linked to a slew of adverse health effects in humans and animals. D-toxing your products will help reduce the demand for harmful chemical ingredients, which will promote the health of our planet.

AZUSA NOW

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Well, today is a pretty amazing day. It's the 100th anniversary of the Azusa prayer revival meetings and it's happening today in a prayer gathering started by Lou Engle 15 years ago.


What Is Azusa Now?

There are times which Scripture describes as "full" — periods of unusual ripeness in which God unleashes His prophetic purpose across the earth.  Such days of faith and expectation often come during periods of crisis or widespread uncertainty. For 15 years, amidst massive cultural decay, Lou Engle and TheCall have sought to proclaim the bold, uncompromising message of consecration to Jesus. Like John the Baptist, we have cried out, "Prepare the way of the Lord!"

Yet the last statement of John was not "Prepare the way," but "Behold the Lamb!" If there was truly a John Movement, then a Jesus Movement is surely coming! Believing that decades of globe-spanning prayer have saturated the heavens, we will boldly ask God for the rain of revival on April 9th, 2016. We will consecrate an entire day — 15 hours — for the purpose of unity, miracles, healing, and the proclamation of the gospel. Our rally cry: Come, Holy Spirit! Instead of 120 in the Upper Room, we seek to gather as many as 120,000 in one place and one accord to simply exalt Jesus. And for inspiration, we turn to the most powerful expression of revival in modern times: the historic Azusa Street Revival of 1906.


Azusa Then

What made the 1906 Azusa Street Revival so special? Three key factors at Azusa mirrored the reality of the formation of the church in Acts 2. Firstly, there was a multi-ethnic gathering of unity in Christ (Acts 2:1-11). Secondly, the miraculous, attesting ministry of the Holy Spirit was enjoyed in a unique way (Acts 2:2-4).  Finally, there was a clear presentation of the Gospel leading many to salvation (Acts 2:37-41).
This outpouring of Heaven descended on the poor districts of Los Angeles during an incredibly dangerous, volatile and prejudiced period of American history.  God used an African American named William Seymour to launch this modern Acts 2 movement. Black, White, Asian and Hispanic came together in bonds of love, unity and prayer. It came to be said, “the color line was washed away” at Azusa.
This is the legacy — the well of revival — we seek to reclaim: Unity. Prayer. Miracles. Healing. Salvation.




 ###
Isn't that awesome!
I got this information and photos off of the website for The Call. There is still time to join in the prayer either on site or by webcast. Check God TV for a live stream.

http://www.thecall.com/azusa

I'm so excited to be in Los Angeles and praying along side with this event. If you have a prayer request, please send it to me and I am honored to lift you up in prayer!

Murad Skincare gets you red carpet ready

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Hello Monday! I love Mondays! I get so much done on a Monday.

So, I'm hitting the ground running today and have to re-watch my TWD (The Walking Dead recording) because I can't believe what I just saw.
I also have to get a ton of videos made and then some, and may I say, then some!

I want to watch some YouTubes of the ACM's and I Heart Radio Radio awards. While that is happening, I am adjusting and getting back in to the swing of things at home in Arizona.

 So I'm blessed beyond belief when I got home last week and this box of goodies from Murad was waiting for me.

My fave skincare, waiting for me when I got home from a month long gig. Thank God for that!

Head Kandy straightening brush: what the ACM awards and I Heart Radio Awards red carpet looks need

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Today is a unique day in award shows because both the ACM's and I Heart Radio Awards are today.
How did that happen?

So there will be red carpet looks happening on both the East and West coasts tonight. Are you planning to watch?

I have a new book to read and will be catching any highlights on YouTube.

I have this new gadget from Head Kandy to try and I took it with me to Las Vegas to get ready for a weekend on the mic for K&N Filters at the NHRA Races.



Oh the good times that were had!

So here's my experience with this thing. Awesome. It heated up quickly. Got hot to 400 degrees and then I ran it through my dry hair, that had a layering of heat protectant and shine spray in it.



I brushed my hair first, and then ran about one inch chunks through the Head Kandy straightening brush. I did sections and then did an all over brush through to get any areas I may have missed.

I like this thing! It's a bit big and awkward to pack and travel with, though it technically replaces two products in one. No need to pack an extra brush and separate straightening iron.

I did bend and twist the ends of my hair with the Head Kandy to give the hair a slightly turned in look to frame my face.
 That lil twist worked wonders.



Over all, I did this thing! It's available on the website now for about $59.99. Enjoy!

Oh happy day! While you are reading this...I am preparing at the Las Vegas Motorspeedway for an amazing day of racing!
Stay tuned to Twitter and Instagram for play by play in pictures!
