Kiss Me Kate

blog_beautyThere are a few skin care products that I splurge on. One of them is worth the $65 price tag—Exfolikate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment by Kate Somerville, sold at katesomerville.com and sephora.com, or in select Neiman Marcus stores.

During every winter season my normally oily skin begins some strange shedding process, and becomes flaky, rough, and generally unattractive. At the height of this season’s worst ever attack on my skin, I decided to finally find a solution to this annoying problem. I was looking for the perfect exfoliator that would clear away the flaky skin, and make room for soft, fresh skin. I found my answer one day when I stopped in at a Neiman Marcus. I must have hit the store on a particularly generous day, because I walked home with a nice handful of samples and I had a chance to try out Exfolikate (the gentle version, since my skin is always having problems). Within two days it felt like my skin began to breathe, and young, clear skin began to show through. The dull winter nature of my skin disappeared and the flakes were gone. (Even my husband tried it out and loved it.)

After I ran out of samples, I purchased the product, and it has been well worth the investment. About three times a week, in the evenings, I wash my face and then use the exfoliator, leaving it on for about 10 minutes. When I wash off the exfoliator, there is a noticeable difference. Splurge on your skin—it’s worth it.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)
