Episode #14 of the Wellness Connections introduces you to a conversation I had with some people who think that Sunscreen is an “American“ thing. This conversation informs those who think that this is true that there is evidence to the contrary.
A recent comment submitted to this Hairblues blog suggested that a person wearing no Makeup can be beautiful as well as a person who does. Of course, I agree. The always lovely Alicia Keys openly rejects makeup. Of course, all you have to do is look at her in the prime of her loveliness and youth, I can’t imagine this winning duo requires too much of a decision. Can you?
I thought that it might be useful to research whether Makeup has other purposes, and can be used for example, to enhance the longevity of how our skin ages and, additionally, help to protect it. Here are just two examples (maybe suggestions). Enjoy!
A tinted moisturizer can actually be good for mature skin.
As I searched the www for opinions and ‘expert ‘ advice about the “no Makeup” choice , it became evident that the Makeup choice is – as you may have suspected – ultimately a personal decision, because ‘one size does not fit everybody’. What also became evident is that, as we age, our skin does change. It may become more dry, less smooth and thinner. There is also loss of skin elasticity. Our first example, therefore, is it may be important to use moisturizers daily for protection from the environment because they help to act against the dryness and add some elasticity.
As we transition from Summer to Fall it may be that you should consider tweaking your skincare routine. That’s what some of the dermatologist and other beauty consultants suggest. Here is a link to some guidelines for you.
What do you know about skin serums? Do they work? Are they worth the cost? Are they good/bad for your skin?
According to some of the research I did, serums can help with various kinds of skin problems like, wrinkles, acne, redness, or dryness. They can produce powerful results, compared to other skin care products. Since they are water-based, your skin absorbs them quickly. Also, they don’t have petrolatum, or other kinds of oil. Serums have nutrients, (like retinol and vitamin C), which are good for your skin.
I don’t know about you but I have spent a ‘pretty penny’trying to find the best skin care products to use. It’s an expensive dent in my budget. That’s why when I read this article in the March 2016 Real Simple Magazine, I could not wait to share it with you. Of course we all have our ‘favorites’ when it comes to skin care, and so do our faces :). However, one should experiment occasionally when adding a new product to our skin care regimen. Here are some of the highlights of what the dermatologists had to say.
♦ According to Heather Rodgers, M.D.washing your face twice a day is not required because your skin protects it. For example, once you’ve cleaned your face in the evening, the next morning you only need to rinse it with water. Dr. Rodgers recommends Eucerin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser ($6.00) – Eucerin Products
♦ Elizabeth Hale, M.D. advises that it’s very important to use Sunscreen every single day. Foundation, which has sunscreen does not protect your skin. She recommends L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition SPF 30 Day Lotion *$20.00) –L’Oreal Products
♦ Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream ($23.00) shows beneficial change. –Roc Retinol Products
These are just a few of the suggestions in the magazine article. There is a wealth of information worth purchasing the magazine for.

♦ Best BB Creams for Every Skin Concern – BB creams quickly went from trend to staple after women learned that using them could slash a few steps from their daily beauty routine. Somewhere between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer, BB creams provide light coverage to help hide imperfections, but are also laced with antioxidants and sunscreen. Source: Skincare | Real Simple
