From The "Youngins"

Here are a couple of things that my daughters have told me about that I had no clue existed.  Maybe some of these are new to you too? Let me know in the comments!

1) Micellar cleansing water for taking off makeup and cleaning your face. You can use it on your whole face to gently cleanse without water.  It contains little cleansing molecules that are suspended in the liquid.   I shake up the bottle first and gently wipe with a cotton pad. I don't rinse it off with water but sometimes I do take a clean cotton pad and wipe again before applying moisturizer.  Here's a great article about micellar water if you want to know more about it.

2) Using highlighter eyeliner on your 'water line' on your lower eyelid can really brighten up your eyes and make you look more awake and alert.  Add a little to the corner of your eyes to really make them pop.

3) Spotify has really changed how we listen to music.  Both of my daughters have been singing the praises of Spotify forever and we finally see why. I can play any album or song that I want whenever I want. I like the daily mix that spotify curates for me. I find a lot of new music that way. They have podcasts too!

4) ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response). Ok, this one is a little weird but when my daughter casually mentioned it in a conversation like I should know what it is (and I didn't!) I had to go investigate.  You can watch/listen to these videos and see what you think. I've never been able to sit through a longer video but it is interesting to see what triggers the responses --some people don't feel anything.  It's best to listen with headphones on for the full effect.

So I immediately started watching the ASMR video and I wondered what she was doing with her hands. Now I get it, and I could feel some of the taps through my iPad and yes as weird as I first thought this was, I feel waaaay more relaxed, crazy but sooo good! Yep, leave it to the younger gen to teach us!!
