"Just like every other form of self-improvement, a healthy skin lifestyle is a commitment to performing a daily regimen consistently. Skin care is like working out; just can't just lift a weight once, or only cleanse your skin, and expect to look amazing. There are basic things you need to do daily."
"Dermalogica is known worldwide as the "professionals' choice", and is founded on the belief that skin care is like brushing your teeth...more about health than pampering or luxury!"
"But skin care is like a gym regimen- results don't happen overnight. Expect to see changes after 6 weeks of regular use."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
