Face Time

When it come to putting my makeup on I often say “It’s time for me to go paint my face.” Between the lotion, the primer, the matte cream, the liquid foundation, the powder, the highlighter, the bronzer and of course the blush I end up feeling like a work of something. Everyday I pile that stuff on for work knowing it’s the last thing my poor pores need.

I wish I could say I take care of my skin. I exfoliate, I get facials but in reality I don’t. In fact, I’d much rather get a massage over a little face time when it’s between the two.

But recently I decided it was time to apologize to face and reward it with a little revival. I headed to new posh new spa Nectar Skin Bar in Georgetown.

That’s where brow and face guru Adrian Avila gave me an intraceuticals oxygen infusion facial. A what? It sounds fancy but it’s real simple. He re-hydrated my skin by using topical oxygen. It’s also infused with vitamins, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin.

Don’t even ask me what all that is.. just know the results were glowing and I felt great!

Next visit: I’m planning to meet up with Kaitlin who I hear gives the best organic chocolate spray tan.  Yep sugar that safely sun kisses you..  you can even top it off with some caramel bronzer. Who could resist!

Powerful Makeover: Everyday Woman to Superhero

Local makeup artist Nour Kazoun, is making everyday women in DC into superheroes! She explains how DC is a pretty conservative place and so her mission is to bring the level of artistry found inNY and other fashion capitals to DC. She picked these women because they are the DC woman – and DC women have ambition, and drive on its own is a super power so why not create our own super heroes that live in the Capital of the world?!

How to pamper a pregger

Whoever invented the body pillow deserves  a Peace Prize. Holy smokes… this thing is awesome.

It was the first step towards 1 hour of pure bliss. I ventured to The Still Point at it’s stunning new location in Takoma Park. That’s where I was greeted by Erika who specializes in prenatal massages. All I remember is cradling my body pillow while she worked my muscles from head to toe. I drifted off just enough to remain relaxed but still aware so I could enjoy the treatment. I usually like a ton of pressure but this was perfect. It wasn’t too hard and wasn’t too light. Just perfect.

SPECIAL: If you’re expecting, The Still Point is offering 15% off pre-natal massages. When you book let them know you heard about it through Oh My Baby!

Erika.. the lady with the magic touch!
