Feeling bored with my process, my friend suggested I create a collection of wearable art inspired by Schiele or Klimt. Sounds intriguing.

Jane recently came to see me, wanting Botox injections to improve the look of her skin. Before jumping in, I brought her a mirror and asked her to point out her primary skin concerns. It turns out she was most bothered by the dullness and discoloration on her face—something a Botox injection just wouldn’t address.
Like so many of my patients, Jane was surprised to learn that her skin woes stemmed from sun damage and not the passage of time. The Skinpact of this is considerable . It’s estimated that as much as 80 percent of our skin’s aged appearance is caused by the sun—not Father Time. Whether we actively sunbathe or not, to some extent we all experience the aging effects of UVA and UVB rays. If you need proof, just compare the skin on your face to that of your sun-protected fanny and you’ll see what I mean.  Unfortunately, no amount of Botox injections will counteract these changes in skin.
Fortunately, when it comes to fighting back against sun damage, there is no need to surrender. I recommended that Jane use our REVERSE Regimen for the appearance of brown spots, dullness and discoloration. Based on Multi-Med® Therapy, REVERSE is an effective, full-face solution that tackles the dullness, uneven skin tone, dark marks and other cumulative, telltale signs of sun exposure while protecting against further sun damage.
I also recommended she amp up her results by power partnering the REVERSE Regimen with the REDEFINE AMP MD™ Micro-Exfoliating Roller as part of her daily routine. AMP MD has been clinically proven to accelerate the visible benefits of the REVERSE Regimen while also leaving skin looking firmer and younger. In a recent clinical study, within two weeks of using the REVERSE Regimen and REDEFINE AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller, more than 80 percent of the participants saw faster results in overall skin appearance, brightness, texture and firmness.
If you are impacted by sun damage, know that, just like my patient Jane, you can clean the slate and see a brighter future for your skin.

When ideas were overwhelming, she’d take long hot baths, one right after another. The writing challenged her not to divert her eyes, keeping them on her vision which is to keep on moving, not stopping, except to meditate, watch her breath, while looking at her hands to find the words waiting, and believing they will come, because they’re right there in the table, the light, and window.
First I’ll make a list, a quick one, Rose decided. “Do I write it all down? Do I make notes?” She asked Clove.
“You can,” Clove said, “or you can just look at your hands. It’s in your body, Rose it’s all in there.” 
“Do you realize that you are saying there are no right answers. You are saying that whatever I say is okay, to just be me and say it. Take the risk.”

Sitting at the kitchen table, I ponder. What haunts me now? How angry I am. What hurts me still? That I can’t scream. What won’t let me be whole? Why can’t I cry? What do I write knowing I am safe? Nothing. I am not safe. I can’t say what needs to be said. I can’t write what soothes the pain. I can’t allow myself to feel. I must be strong, pleasant and positive. Manifest faith and hope. I must. That’s what a great mother does. I notice the soft light through the lace curtains, the fuchsia mums, their fragrance. I see where I am. My head aches, my back aches. There are new lines of sadness that frame the lips I cover with lipstick. I try hard to disguise the pain my body reveals. I resist telling what I think. If I did, I could not put myself back together again.   excerpts from The Garden Girls’ Letters and Journal
