About me

Hi there!

My Name is Ruth, and I live in Glendale, California. We have a house on Salem street where I live since 2002 with my two dogs and my Australian husband Sam.

I am sporty and outgoing. I like attending outdoor festivals, traveling, gardening, and rock climbing. Bakersfield where I was born and where my sister Barbara lives was better suited for outdoorsy things. I still go hiking whenever I visit my sis. Oh, if you love browsing cooking blogs, you have probably visited Barbara’s blog at basenjimom.com and seen her cooking tips and recipes.

I also love cooking and reading contemporary novels. I also like to play the piano.

I have spent several years of my life with mild acne and various skin care problems. Suddenly, severe acne served as a challenge for me when I was 22. Since then, I took it upon myself to look after my skin and so, I started to write about it as a way of gaining knowledge, trying out new products and helping other people. Having clear and healthy skin makes me feel happier and more confident to go outside wearing no make-up at all but feel as beautiful! Read on to learn more about accessories for skin care and tips for healthy skin.

Facial Cleansing Brushes

Facial cleansing brushes are quality devices that give me beautiful skin because they are intended to use the right sonic technology. They provide me with gentle, deep cleansing to make sure that I have more vibrant skin in terms of both appearance and texture. Cleansing brushes remove make-up and dirt from my skin much better than any other techniques. Makeup and dirt on the skin can result in clogged pores, causing blackheads and acne.

Mainly, the technology of cleansing brushes utilizes pulses and vibrations that vibrate my pores clean. Having a simple skin care routine and protection against the recurrence of dirt and make-up refilling my pores is beneficial for me. My skin looks better than I could have imagined when I use brushes, so be sure to invest in these items, as they are comfortable and safe to use. For example, Clarisonic Mia 1 and Erisonic Cleansing System for Face and Body are some quality cleansers, and both have more than 4.0 stars from several customers of online stores selling it.

Microdermabrasion Machines

Trips to the spa or salon multiple times a month usually becomes financially draining for me. I have observed that over the years, the effectiveness and quality of microdermabrasion have improved and today’s machines are as efficient and powerful as you may find at an expensive salon or spa. So, I go to the market for a first-class microdermabrasion system that is easy and comfortable to use. I think it is essential to make sure the best microdermabrasion machine is modern looking, vastly recommended by dermatologists, and FDA registered and approved.

We need to look for an in-depth cleaning with the microdermabrasion system. We need it to even our skin tone over time and remove dry, rough patches from our neck and face. The dermabrasion tips of some machines are etched with diamond tips, while other devices come with many different types of exfoliating crystals. I think the Microderm GLO Diamond Microdermabrasion System by Nuvéderm and the Original Comedo Suction Microdermabrasion Machine by KRASR are quality machines. Several customers online have given both more than four stars.

Men’s Electric Shavers for Women

I think men’s electric shavers work fantastically for women. I love borrowing one from my husband often. When I first got my hands on an best electric shaver, I promised myself that I would never use disposable ones again. In case of electric shavers, frequent replacing the blades is quite central for better hygiene. Electric shavers give a close shave. They also have a flexible head that you can lock with a switch, which is quite comfortable if you think you need to shave more curvy parts. The Panasonic ES8243A Arc4 Electric Razor and the Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3040s Men’s Electric Razor (Wet and Dry) are quality items and highly rated by customers online.

For more delicate tasks I have got my own hair removal product for women.
