Ray Petri ladies and gents ! that mastermind stylist behind the style called buffalo .. and inspiration to menswear . Years later his work is still invigorating stylists
His passion was for overseeing everything about the creation of a photograph, except actually snapping the picture. Instead of using models and the buff blonds of the time, he cast teenagers, often of mixed descent, to wear designer clothes that he paired with underwear, vintage pieces and athletic basics best suited for bicycle messengers. The resulting look was unflinchingly tough and sexually charged.
Here is an editorial Ali Stephen Dons the Buffalo style for Glamour , styled by Sebastian Gambos
I have his coffee table book and always get inspired Amazon sells it .

I recently had a facial and broke out just days after . Now I know that during a facial your pores are steamed open to draw out the impurities, therefore leaving the skin more susceptible to breakouts.
Now my skin is oily but in my younger years I had acne issues, so I can say I am a bit experienced with the diligence needed to minimize breakage and scarring , I have, with time, learned my lesson.
I decided while looking at myself in the mirror with my new friends zit one (left cheek ) and a fuller twice the size zit two (right cheek ) that I needed a new regimen for my skin.
Alas, I try Kate Somerville :
My instance favorite Clinic-To-Go Resurfacing Peel Pads it helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, pores and acne scars as well as buffs its way into revealing younger brighter skin. I am a fan of pads and now to have pads that are juiced up with this goodness , I mean you can feel it working on your skin , it a must-have. Nutrient-rich botanical ingredients smooth the skin while helping to soothe and calm irritation
ExfoliKate Acne Clearing Exfoliating Treatment This is like an instant facial. It literally only takes one minute, and your skin feels smoother and tighter afterwards, and it helps to fight blemishes
Now the dessert for the skin CytoCell™ Dark Circle Corrective Eye Cream & Total Vitamin Antioxidant Face Serum these two products deliver on their promise and make face prepping in the morning a delightful luxury.
The eye cream has helped with the puffiness that I tend to have my reactivating dormant stem cells. Total Vitamin face serum has the nutrients that brighten , balance and tone the radiant appearance .
Winter is always harsh on my skin thankfully Kate Somerville's Products have just revitalized them.
