I took 3 months away from writing, so the habit of coming back here has taken a few extra days to engage my brain into it. I think we can agree that the final quarter of 2016 had so much internet stimulus going on between news, solicitations, and the continued rotting of our attention spans that I chose to not contribute to the noise; and chose to detox myself from much of social media.
I never imagined I would sound like my father in such a manner, but here it goes: I now prefer a book in my face instead of Facebook, to hear actual birds rather than Twitter notifications, and to be unplugged more than LinkedIn. I suspect you feel the same most days, so without deforesting an entire woodland, I chose to reach out in a bit of an old-fashioned way via email. (I hear it's passé now too...)
On a less curmudgeoned note, there are 3 new Éminence products that help with detoxification now hitting the shelves. For my fellow oil-cleanser lovers, you will be in love with the Stone Crop Cleansing Oil. Also adding to the new arrivals are the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ and the Lotus Detoxifying Night Treatment, both for all skin types. I can't promise they make all the internet static go away, but they do wonders for environmental pollutants and moisture replenishment after this crazy winter.
So as Spring starts to show around us, remember to not only detox, but to renew and infuse yourself with the simpler things that bring joy. Writing to you brings me joy, as I cannot wait to see you soon. If there is something I need to address for you in any way, please let me know- it's the only way I can know.
