Is Your Skin Costing You?

Skin care can get pricey but spending some money up front can save you down the road.  Some tips to help keep your skin in tip top shape.

  • Daily sunscreen.  Use of daily sunscreen helps prevent sun damage - not only can this help keep you looking younger but it can help stave off skin cancer.
  • If money is super tight, petroleum jelly can help with a ton of skincare ailments including rough, cracked feet & hands, preventing chafing, etc.
  • More expensive doesn't necessarily mean better.  But on the same token, cheap may just be cheap.  Find what works for you and don't waste money on cheap products if they aren't helping.  If something is costly but it works, then see if you can use just a little bit less and make it last longer.
  • Don't wait till you're dry.  Apply moisturizer as soon as you get out of the shower to help lock in the moisture.
  • Keep your eye on the ingredients - make sure your products include things like Vitamin A and alpha hydroxy acid.  Don't waste your money on ineffective ingredients.

#sexysaturday - Isn't She A Peach?

Peach is a great alternative to the classic bridal white - white can sometimes be too harsh for fair skin so this is a subtle hint of color that can look amazing on the fair skins!

Gift Idea - Buy A Domain For Your Child

Gift Idea - Buy A Domain For Your Child

Unique Gift for a Child

Searching for a unique gift idea for your kid’s upcoming birthday? Try purchasing a domain name comprised of their first and last names, or first middle and last, or any combination!

The digital age is in high gear and domain space is a commodity. Without a doubt, your identity becomes your Personal Brand when you are trying to sell yourself. Starting a project, getting hired, applying for college: all of these things would greatly benefit from a personalized website where your child can showcase their accomplishments. What if you have a young entrepreneur on your hands and they decide to set up shop?

The good news is that domain names are cheap - maybe $10/yr. so even if you have it and later on your kids decides they don’t need it (that’s not gonna happen, trust me), then you haven’t really lost much.

Here are a few short articles with some good information on the subject:

Our Two Weeks of Fall Is Here!

Our Two Weeks of Fall Is Here!

Which means that very, very soon the really dry weather will be upon us.  Which means that dry skin will coming screaming our way as quickly as we'll be back to 100°.

The American Academy of Dermatology has some tips to help keep your dry skin at bay.

While we might all love our super hot showers, they can reek havoc on our skin so try to minimize how long you stand soaking in the hot water.  If you must, at least try to keep the door closed so it gets steamy up in there.  

Keep your lips & skin moist.  Slather yourself in moisturizer right after getting out - don't even completely dry off.  Do the same for your lips with a GOOD lip balm.  In addition to my boudoir biz, I also am a distributor for SeneGence (the amazing 18 hr lipstick!) and we have a great lip balm and moisturizers for all skin types.  (link to my group here).

Wear gloves.  If you're still washing dishes by hand, the soap and water will dry out your skins.  Just the same, being out in the chill air will dry your hands quick.  Keep those keyboard clickers warm and toasty.

Keep it moist.  Cuz everyone loves that word.  If your workplace is super dry and lotion ain't cutting it, consider investing in a small humidifier.  You can grab one from WalMart for like $20.  Add some essential oils and spruce up the crappy office smell.

As much as getting cozy in front of the fire sounds like a great way to spend the evening it can also be super drying to your skin so limit your exposure.

Oh - and keep drinking water!  Even though it might be chilly, drinking water is the single best way to help keep your skin in tip top shape.

Make it through this winter without getting itchy, flaky, and cracked.  Do you have a favorite way to retain moisture?
