to make our skin look flawless?

keep your skin clean and refine your pores. Moisturize
your skin, even if your skin is oily. There are moisturizers

my clients swear that work"

Dot the spot with toothpaste the night before and allow it

Take the egg yoke and dab it on your face.
Make a mask of egg and milk and allow it to dry on your

before we apply makeup.
