Beauty & The Beach: FaceTime

You know that moment when you go to take a picture and your camera is turned to selfie and you catch a glimpse of yourself and gasp? For those of us who live a no-filters life, maintaining a respectable countenance is important. Part of the problem is that I am more aware of my feet than my face because I spend a lot more time in forward fold in yoga instead of in front of a mirror. While there are many make up tricks including the smoky eyes for over 40, which I have not yet mastered, healthy glowing skin is the best foot, or, in this case, face forward. The Hamptons have a number of spas and individuals who specialize in fantastic facials. And men, hello! This is for you too.
