A Speaking Engagement in Seattle WA with Sensaria Natural Bodycare 2003

This speaking engagement was in 2003 for a direct sales skin care product line called Sensaria Natural Bodycare . (Apparently they closed their doors in 2011.)

They approached me to speak at their annual national convention; so many of their representatives had read Timeless Skin and urged the higher ups to get me on the speakers list.

I was greeted like a celebrity. I had book signing sessions and made the rounds at lunches talking with lovely people who had read my book, Timeless Skin, and were super excited to meet its author. It really was a special occasion for me. I felt this was a successful talktwo actually. And I left Washington state feeling really good about my speeches and about the seminar in general.

I was 42 when I gave this speech. Listening to it now at 56, I am happy with what I talked about and rather pleased at how I handled myself. From the beginning of my career, on all the TV shows and radio shows I spoke on in my 40s, and still nowI continue to believe in all of the things I have spoken about.

WARNING: This is not a perfect version of this video. There is an obvious noise throughout the tape. But you can hear everything Im saying so please give it a go and take a listen.

As I mention below, 3 out of the 4 videos I had of this occasion burned in the Wine Country wild fires in early October 2017. If you were a mail order client of mine at the time, you knew this information (about the fire). But if not, that fire took all my belongings and I just happened to be uploading all of my TV appearance videos the week before the fires. So, I didn't get them all up, but I am thankful I got some on youtube.

Click on the link below to be taken to the upload for what I think is the 2nd part of my second day of speaking. This second speech was entitled: 10 Myths & Misconceptions about Skin Care
  • Day 1: Part Iunfortunately burned in October 2017 North Bay CA fires
  • Day 1: Part II—burned
  • Day 2: Part I—burned
  • Day 2: Part II (WARNING: This is not a perfect version of this video. There is an obvious noise throughout the tape. But you can hear everything Im saying so please give it a go and take a listen.)

Carolyn Ash interviewed on Good News Broadcast radio

This was a 30 minute radio interview I did with the founder of Good News Broadcast, Paul Sladkus. He was a fun host and asked lots of good questions. Plus he gave me ample room to wax poetic about skin care. Something that is pretty easy for me to do! Since this was recorded sometime after my first book, Timeless Skin, was published, it is from somewhere around the year 2000 or 2001.

The audio is audible, but I’m pretty sure my sweet mom recorded it in her home when I was actually on air. So, it is what it is but I give a lot of good information on this show and I think it’s worth a listen, albeit with the primitive recording.

CLICK HERE to be taken to this interview on youtube. ENJOY!

You can still go to Paul’s website: goodnewsbroadcast.com and listen towell, good news!

Yonka’s PROLONGATEUR DE BRONZAGE—tan prolonger

Yonka recently discontinued their wonderful self tanner, Lait Auto Bronzant. I inquired if a replacement product would be coming and was told the following: At this time Yonka has no plans of replacing Auto Bronzant. Per our education department, self-tanners like Auto Bronzant are no longer big sellers nor sought after in spas. Clients are spending money on spray tanning since it offers even coverage, good color, and is not damaging to the skin. The convenience and cost of spray tanning has replaced the need for self-tanners in the spa market and/or application of self-tanners in spas.

Respectfully, I don’t know if I totally agree with that or not. However, if you are looking for a replacement for Auto Bronzant or perhaps another self-tanner you are happy with, give Prolongateur de Bronzage a try.

I have several clients who swear by this product, which, due to the awkward French name, I refer to as Tan Prolong.Some of you were hoping Yonka would keep Auto Bronzant in retail for those of you who used it on your arms and legs, but now you can purchase Tan Prolong and get the same effect.
From Yonka headquarters: PROLONGATEUR DE BRONZAGE is an after-sun lotion that is a double action repairing treatment with an irresistible glow. Giving a golden effect, this after sun cream is regenerating, hydrating, soothing, and it helps the epidermis (outer skin) to recover after sun exposure. Tan Prolong leaves your skin with a delicate satin feel, which prolongs the natural radiance of your tan, day after day.

Essential ingredients:
  • Imperata cylindrica—hydrating
    Grape seed oil
    —restructuring, softening, nourishing
    DHA, erythrulose
    Bisabolol, vitamin B5
  • Vitamins A and E, three tea polyphenols—antioxidant, protecting, regenerating
  • Yonka “Quintessence (essential oils of thyme, lavender, cypress, geranium, and rosemary)—vitalizing, balancing
Directions for use:
  • Apply Tan Prolong lotion evenly to the face and/or body
  • Renew the application every day in order to prolong your natural tan
  • After 5 days, you will reach the maximum glow intensity
  • Avoid contact with the eyes
  • Wash your hands after each use
