🌚 It’s time!! Independent beauty consultants can now order Mary Kay’s BRAND NEW Charcoal mask! It is officially released!

🤷🏻‍♀️ SO WHY MASK? ⬇️
▪️ Hydrates Your Skin
▪️ Removes excess oil
▪️ Pulls out impurities
▪️ Deeper clean than a cleanser
▪️ Makes your skin glow
▪️ Minimizes appearance of pores

🌚 WHAT ABOUT THOSE PEEL OFF MASKS? ⬇️
❌ Damages, rips, and stretches pores
❌ Pulls out your peach fuzz on your face!!
❌ Removes the first layer of skin only
❌They HURT!!! 😭

🌚WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE MK CHARCOAL MASK? ⬇️
▪️ Activated charcoal binds to the dirt, toxins, impurities, and bacteria allowing for a process called ADsorption (not absorbing) to take place by bringing everything to the surface. (See the darker spots in my picture? That’s the adsorption process taking place! EWWW but cool, right?)
▪️Pores become less visible because dirt and oil makes them appear bigger
▪️It contains no glue, so you rinse off the mask- avoiding damaging the skin.

Tree of Hope

Please help me raise funds for Dysautonomia Support Network; an organization near and dear to my heart.

This amazing charitable, non-profit organization helps support patients and increase awareness of an illness of which I suffer. It would mean a lot to me if you could help – plus this t-shirt is adorable!!

imageA little about the Dysautonomia Support Network:

imageThe Dysautonomia Support Network is a U.S. based 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization providing support, resources, education and advocacy for patients affected by the many forms of Dysautonomia and related conditions such as Connective Tissue Disorders, Mast Cell Activation Disorders, Chiari Malformation and Gastric Motility Disorders.

Volunteers are trained to help patients through every stage of their journey, from diagnosis to advocacy. THey promote a positive but realistic environment and a sense of community in our national and state chapters.

What is Dysautonomia? Well, here’s the short answer:

Dysautonomia (or autonomic neuropathy) is a term for various conditions in which the autonomic nervous system (ANS) does not work correctly. Dysautonomia is a type of neuropathy affecting the nerves that carry information from the brain and spinal cord to the heart, bladder, intestines, sweat glands, pupils, and blood vessels.

There is no cure. There are only a few treatment options available. Very few  doctors have an understanding of this illness and even fewer specialize. It took me 10+ years of seeing countless doctors before I was diagnosed and another 10 years before I found doctors who  are actually able to work, treat, and manage my illness.

I hope you grab one of these great shirts as your donation will help spread awareness. Help educate doctors and patients alike. Help research new treatments and look for a cure.
