I am super excited to announce the relaunch of my Youtube Channel, PonchTV. I started my original Youtube Channel in 2013 when I started Ponch Cosmetics. However, I was never very comfortable in my videos so I only posted a few videos and then I stopped. I eventually chose to blog instead.
Well, I am elated to disclose that at the beginning of this year, I decided to try my luck with video again. I discovered that Youtube is one of the best ways to connect my message with my audience. It is only second to Google as an online search engine. That means that as a business owner, there is a tremendous opportunity for growing a brand online.
If you like to watch videos online, but you’re somewhat disinclined to subscribe or follow new channels that are not as popular, then I am going to give you five great reasons why you should watch PonchTV. I truly believe that I will be able to add more value via video. Therefore, I would like to answer any questions that you might have about my channel. Here are my top five reasons why you should watch and ultimately subscribe:
Get to know me. Youtube is the best way to meet someone without actually meeting them in person. If you’re an introvert with a strong passion for skincare and beauty, then you get to watch all of my videos about my many skin care solutions without having to actually get out to meet me. Trust me, I get it! I’m an introverted extrovert if that makes any sense. I love meeting people, but I hate going out. In business, you can’t make it unless you deal with people so I have to force myself to go out sometimes. Youtube allows me to get out without actually getting out. We can become friends online and avoid any awkward encounters. If this describes you, then I think you should follow. We just might be kindred spirits. Plus, I think I talk about the industry in such a relatable way that if you have any interest at all, then my channel is just right for you.
Event updates. Even though I don’t like to get out, my business forces me to from time to time. In this industry, travel is necessary to learn and grow. I typically attend many beauty events to stay informed of any new products hitting the market. I have not attended BeautyCon yet, but it is next on my agenda. I have attended various other events and conferences. If you’re a beauty addict like myself who has never attended, then the entire experience would be like we are attending together. If you have attended any of the events that I mention, then we can discuss your thoughts about the event to see if we had similar experiences. Occasionally, I host events in different cities or set up booths at different conferences. You have an opportunity to be the first to know when I host or attend my events.
Product hauls/reviews. If you have gotten this far with this blog post, then you’re probably a product junkie like me. I can’t lie. I have a problem! I am skincare obsessed. I also love makeup. I don’t feel one bit of embarrassment about it. If you like to be informed about new products or even old products, then you should watch my channel. I will be reviewing new and old products and exposing everything in my arsenal with hauls. If this sounds like fun to you, then you need to tune in to my channel.
Tutorials. I can’t lie tutorials aren’t really my thing, but my followers love them so I have had to do them to appease my followers. If you want me to be your muse before you try a particular product, then that’s a great reason to watch. I will go before you and make sure that all is well with a product for you so that you know whether you should smash (buy) or pass (walk away).
Results. Finally, the one thing that I am certain about with my skincare choices is that I get results. I have been studying skincare products since I was about 16 years old (going through puberty and acne). I am forty-five now and I can honestly say that I have had visible results. If you’re struggling with skin issues, then you should watch so that we can tackle your problem together. I can help you. As a matter of fact, I want to help you because GREAT SKIN MATTERS! If you’re up for the challenge, then you should go subscribe to PonchTV today! Here’s the link to the channel www.youtube.com/c/PonchTV!
Fall officially arrived on September 22 and will end on December 21. When she arrived, she didn’t make a lot of noise this year. As a matter of fact, Fall came quietly. The falling of the leaves and the greenery of the trees were unusually subdued. If you weren’t paying attention to these climate changes, then you might have believed that Summer didn’t want to leave us.
Fall is the season that you cannot miss, not even if you tried. Fall is the season that doesn’t stir us in the same way as Spring, Summer and Winter. That’s because we know that after Fall comes Winter. If you live in certain regions, you know that nobody is looking forward to Winter. However, Fall is that one season where we know we get a short reprieve from the heat or the cold. Go figure!
During the Fall, our skin needs our attention more than ever. Winter will bring us many external factors that will affect our skin. If we ignore our skin during this critical time, then we fail to protect ourselves from what is to come. It is during Fall, that we must create a good skincare routine to guard against the elements.
Winter is right around the corner lurking. She is a ruthless bitch unlike Fall. If we don’t want Winter to come and ruin us with her savagery, then we must take the necessary precautions. It is during Fall that we offset all of the damage Winter will wreak during those harsh Winter months.
You can do this easily by doing these three things to protect your skin:
Start moisturizing your face daily. To protect against dehydration that likely occurs during the Winter, you need to make sure that you’re moisturizing your face. If your skin is oily, use a water-based moisturizer. If you’re skin is dry use a oil-based moisturizer.
Follow up with a gentle cleanser. In the next couple of months, the cold will dry your skin as much as any products you use. So, don’t make it worse by using harsh chemicals. Make sure your toner is gentle on your skin.
Finally, minimize your pores with a light mask. The Summer months caused your pores to grow increasingly large likely due to heat, humidity, and dirt buildup.
This list is short and sweet. However, it is extremely effective. If you want to prepare your skin for Winter, then you need to Fall into the right skincare routine now! Your skin will thank you!
It is officially Spring and what better way to start it off than with Spring cleaning. Since this blog is about makeup, we are going to focus on spring cleaning our makeup bags. Each year we purchase and accumulate all kinds of products that we have great intentions on using, but somehow never do for whatever reason. Most of these products come with expiration dates. Today, we are going to focus on the products that you need to get rid of that are probably well beyond the expiration. Here’s my top ten list of items that you need to get rid of if it’s just taking up space in your makeup bag.
Mascara- I don’t care how expensive it is. Mascara comes with an expiration date. If you have had it longer than three months, then it’s time to get rid of it. If not, mascara is one of those products that can carry lot of bacteria. If you don’t want to risk getting some type of eye infection, I encourage you to get rid of that old mascara. It’s just collecting dust…and more bacteria.
Foundation-Foundation gets old and watery. It’s just ineffective if you allow it to get that way. Who wants to put on extra streaky foundation that’s watered down? I promise you the outcome won’t be your desired look so just throw it away and start over.
Liquid concealer- Liquid concealer is foundation on a smaller scale. Therefore, the same rules as #2 applies. Just get rid of it.
Liquid Eyeliner -Anything that is liquid has the ability to become ineffective after about 4-5 months, especially if you’re not using it. Rule of thumb-if it’s watery, then it’s probably of no use.
Eye Lash Glue- Bonding glue is the worse because after a nonuse it become porous and the adhesive is not going to stick. Therefore, you should throw away your lash glue after 6 months. I’ve tested this practice, as well, and it’s definitely no good after 5-6 months.
I hope this helps. Spring is the perfect time to start fresh with your beauty products and what better way to do so than by getting rid of the things you don’t need.
