I recently did a facial mapping consultation with a client, her results and the interview that followed was very revealing.
Me: Chioma you have a lot of fine lines on your forehead, what is your daily water intake
C: Oh I don’t like drinking water; does the water from my coffee count?
Me: Your skin is testing + (plus) five years, what have you been doing?
Chioma; oh, I have been partying a lot this month. My friends got married, we had a huge bachelorette party then the wedding party, then we had another friends 30th birthday party. You can tell from my skin
Me; Yes, alcohol leaves many telling signs on your skin, I can also tell that you are exposing your skin to damaging environmental factors and improper care.
The secret to flawless glass skin is a holistic approach that is built on a disciplined and meticulous process.
