Physical Sunblock, Vitamin C and Antioxidants All in One Do you only have the budget for ONE product, but you need a moisturizer, sunblock, antioxidants, and so on, and so on? Well, this is IT for only $31. I was amazed 2 years ago when I first tried this product, and I’ve haven’t been disappointed since. It goes on creamy and blends in really well. It only takes a pea size amount to do your whole face, a little more if you’re doing your neck (which you should be). I’ve heard that some have had an issue with the scent, butRead More →

I’m not one of those women who pays a fortune for skin care, spas, Botox, chemical peels, etc. But I do take really good care of my skin, and I do 99.9% of it at home. The one time I ventured into a spa, I came out looking like Frankenstein because the esthetician thought it was necessary to pop and squeeze every little thing on my face. And then she proceeded to slather me up to theRead More →
Like this? Then share it with your friends! A common question I’ve been getting is how to tell the difference between skin ailments. There are a few that can be mistaken for one another. Being misdiagnosed is very frustrating and can lead to months, or even years of inaccurate treatment, sometimes causing bigger problems than the original ailment. Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is probably one of the most misdiagnosed skin ailments. It’s very common, and is usually easy to figure out if you’ve had any experience with it.

The one thing I’m told often is:”I don’t have time to do this every day”. So I’m here ro show you how to pamper yourself in 5 minutes or less in the morning by giving yourself a “Busy Girl Facial”! Normally, when you go to a spa, they wash your face with a cleanser, and then they might apply a scrub. And last but not least, they will probably do some sort of antioxidant mask.

There are a bunch of old wives tales about how to treat eczema and they’re pretty much hit or miss. Same thing goes for prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. I’ve tried a bunch of different treatments, but unfortunately there isn’t a cure-all. Here’s my experience with eczema and treatments that I’ve tried.
Eczema is one of those mysterious skin conditions that no one seems to know a whole lot about. Scientists have not been able to agree on what causes it. But let me tell you what it is not. It’s not contagious, and it’s not just dry skin.Read More →
For this post, instead of preaching to you about taking care of your skin, I’d love to tell you a story. This is the story of a real man who refused to use a good skin care regimen because it wasn’t manly enough. If you’re the wife, girlfriend or significant other of a guy that won’t take care of his skin, or if you’re the guy that won’t take care of his skin……..having bad skin is not manly, having good skin IS! Try it, what do you have to lose?
So you think you know what SPF is? I did, until I read an article that told me different. So I started looking into it to see what the real story is. You’d think that with a name like “Sun Protection Factor”, it would mean how much you’re protected from the sun, right? If you do, you’re only 1/2 right.
