I know via my blog, that many of you feel you know me and I love that, but truly when it comes to my beauty whims, I must satisfy them instantly.
Case in point; a few weeks ago on a Monday, I noticed how straggly my ends were looking. With Becker Salon closed, I knew I was about an inch too close to taking matters into my own hands.
Here's where I ended up instead:
|Classic Barbershop Greenwich Ct.|
Which brings me to Sunday and the insane way my beauty axis aligns with the world. As we all do, I receive tons of alerts and emails. Suffice to say, delete, delete, delete.
Today however, an aberrant thing occurred... I actually opened my "Popular on Pinterest This Week" email and began to scroll.
I was truly unaware, of how many beauty pins make the cut. The few things I look at on Pinterest are either fashion, Street style, decor or delicious recipes that I will never, ever make.
Low and behold and there was a DIY recipe for blackhead extraction! Best of all it didn't involve 11 ingredients, most of which would have been available only in an open air market in Marrakesh.
Toothpaste and table salt...these I could muster. The directions couldn't have been easier; simply make a paste of any available toothpaste and table salt, scrub, scrub, scrub, leave on for five minutes and then rinse off.
Me being a "more is more" kind of Girl, I couldn't resist also applying it to the nonexistent blackheads on the sides of my nose.
Since I've never used toothpaste on my face, I thought it might be best to remove it in the shower. As I rinsed my face, I could feel that those little buggers, magically, were no longer. I couldn't wait to see for myself...(surprise! I don't have a mirror in the shower,) and sure enough, they were!!!
I can't wait to tell Julie about this and of course, to share this with you. Frankly, I'm still in shock and I often peek or run my finger over my cleft to see if they are really gone. On second thought, I better keep my hands off my face, or they will reappear faster than my roots.
I'm also going to try and find that Pinterest Pin. I didn't heart or Pin it, but given my stellar results, I think they've earned my love. Don't you???
