I was at Saks, trying to score a free sample of a SKII product. Turns out they were out of every sample, of all their products. Really?
What the SKII saleswoman, did offer up was a free facial analysis. Supposedly, they have some kind of camera, that can photograph beneath the skin’s surface, helping you to figure out what products would best benefit your skin.
What she was describing sounded a bit like MRI technology. Call me skeptical, but I find it hard to believe that they have a MRI-like piece of equipment sitting behind the SKII counter.
I turned down the offer, because I knew that once I had the procedure, (MRIs are expensive) I would have felt obligated to buy something.
But I’ve recently found a free imaging system, with which we can all analyze our skin’s needs.
It’s called our eyeballs. The procedure is very simple.
Apply a facial mask. Wait 5 minutes. Look in the mirror. Wherever the mask has soaked in, re-apply more mask. For me, under my cheekbones and my eyelids, are my “desperately-in-need-of-attention” areas.
Or, as I like to refer to them, my Heidi and Spencer areas.
I know they say to avoid the eye area with masks, but I think being so obedient to the side of jars, helped bring me to this dehydrated-eyelid place to begin with.
With this face mask method, my entire face gets every ounce of nourishment and care it needs. No MRI necessary.
Do you have any other facial mask tips you'd like to share?
