Mary Poppins knew what she was thinking when she said a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down…in the most delightful way. In my case, it helped me get rid of the dry film of skin that has formed as a result of traveling to much cooler climates. Over the past week I have been visiting family and friends in Holland and Norway, and the change in temperature has taken a toll on my skin. I forgot my trusty facial scrub(s—I have five bottles sitting in my shower rack!), and with the Euro/Norwegian Krone to Peso conversion, I saw it pointless to spend on a 6th bottle. So I decided to go the natural way and get some sugar from the kitchen of my Norwegian hosts Lars and Marie Cecile. I mixed in two teaspoons with my regular Sekkisei facial cleanser and worked up a thick consistency and massaged it all over my face for about a minute. I pat it try and put on my trusty La Mer The Tonic and Crème de la Mer (Sandra you are a life saver!) and proceeded to get some beauty sleep. I woke up this morning with ultra soft skin. The flakes and rough patches from the day before disappeared, and my clogged pores have been cleaned out. Sweet revenge, I say.
