Does your skin get dry in the winter? Of course it does. It’s winter. Try living out here in the Arizona desert. After Christmas we Phoenicians look less like goddesses and more like a vintage handbag. Seriously– after a full winter of this dryness, my face feels rougher than a Piers Morgan interview with Tonya Harding. (zzzzing!)
Even if you don’t live in drier climates, winter has some surprising negative effects on skin. Our skin starts to feel the
effects of cold weather when temperatures
drop below 53.6 degrees Fahrenheit. And perhaps most surprisingly, central heating can reduce air humidity levels to the same moisture content as the Sahara Desert (that’s a relative humidity of just 20-25%). So the problem isn’t necessarily the cold weather, but what we have to do to deal with it.

What if you could completely change your skin in less than a month? What if you did less, not more, to make it happen? As a product junkie, I’d typically be apt to cast a skeptical eye at this proposition, but the Olay 28 Day Challenge tempted me. After all, I’m not one to resist a challenge.

#Olay #ad #Ageless Youthfulness will always be in style, but I feel like lately it’s had even more of a resurgence. Just look at our recent music: the Chainsmokers bravely proclaim “we ain’t never getting older”, Troye Sivan’s aptly named “Youth” notes “we’ve no time for getting old”… are we in denial, or is this goal of permanent youth actually *gasp* achievable?
“Sure,” many of you smirk, “with the right surgeon.” Reality TV alone is proof that a youthful appearance can be bought, but the price tag is no joke. Or is it? Can we reverse the hands of time without taking out a home equity line of credit to foot the bill on poisonous injectables, irreversible surgical procedures or celeb-endorsed $300 ointments made of only the finest free-range bald eagle spit?
The answer is yes. Ladies, welcome to the future. Gone are the days when we had to step beyond the drugstore doors and shell out makeup-counter dollars to get a decent quality skincare product. It’s 2017, and youth is now within your budget.
But don’t those pricey products work better? That’s what the snobby counter girl WANTS you to think, but the only real added benefits go on her commission check. Consider this: Good Housekeeping Institute did a study on 10 top prestige beauty creams (including one with a $440 price tag), and drugstore powerhouse Olay’s Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream outperformed them ALL. Say what? Continue reading “How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless” »
There are very few sexier areas on a woman’s body than the decolletage. (For those of you who don’t speak French [hmph! Plebeians…], that’s the upper part of a woman’s torso comprising her neck, shoulders, back and chest that is exposed by the neckline of her clothing.)
Skincare seems to be advancing by leaps and bounds these days, and nowhere is that more evident than in the new Paula’s Choice skincare line. This line is premium, luxury skincare at its finest, but it’s much more budget-friendly than many other brands I’ve tried. Continue reading “Paula’s Choice is The Next-Level in Skincare” »
