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.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. ri[email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
