GROW YOUR OWN (eyelashes and eyebrows)

June 12, 2013 - 6:12pm

Every woman wants long luscious lashes and shapely, full eyebrows. Many of us aren’t born with great lashes and our brows are wispy at best.

Some of us are given a great set of lashes and brows but we’re hard on them. Curlers pull lashes out. Mascaras and eyeliners can weaken lashes with harsh chemicals that make them brittle. We over-pluck eyebrows, taking them for granted and assuming the pesky hairs will always return. Not the case.

You might be faithfully using a facial cleanser and wondering why. Maybe you’ve been told you need a facial cleanser and haven’t succumbed because you secretly think it isn’t worth the money.

A facial cleanser is a cleaner. It’s like soap for your face but there’s more to it than that. A good quality facial cleanser is specifically formulated to cleanse skin. Yes, you read that right. Not all soaps we put on our body are specifically designed for cleaning skin. This is why some people find washing their face makes it very dry or makes it break out.

Information about protecting skin from the sun is everywhere. Yet there are still people who opt out of sun protection. Even those of us with the best intentions can get caught unprepared in the midst of sun and fun. Sunburns are easy to come by. A sunburn today can turn into sun damage down the road. If you didn’t practice sun protection in the past and find sun damage has come to roost, here’s some help.

You Need Therapie (Silk and Bamboo Pillowcase)

May 16, 2013 - 10:54am

Your face and your hair should be sleeping on silk. A full real silk sheet set is expensive. Your covers slide off the bed which doesn’t make for restful sleep. Your rough heels and elbows chew up the expensive bottom sheet over time. A traditional real silk pillowcase used with a regular sheet set would seem like a better option but a silk pillowcase still doesn’t stay on the pillow and your pillow slides around under your head. This makes trying to get some shut eye more of a pain than a pleasure.

Top Ten Sun Protection Tips (not by David Letterman)

Spring has finally sprung. It’s time to review the Top Ten Sun Protection Tips.

10. Take shade breaks. I’m not suggesting you live in the basement all summer. Do, however, take short breaks from full sunlight. Your collagen will thank you.

9. Use vitamin C serum before bed. Vitamin C promotes collagen production and undoes sun damage.

8. Check your skincare products for glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids. If you suspect any of your products have this potent exfoliator, cut back on them. Thinning the skin can cause rebound pigmentation problems.
