We all know the #1 thing that influences the way our skin looks is what we put into our bodies (#2-staying out of the sun!). If you're over 50, you may be wondering what you can do to return the youthful glow to your skin.
Of course, I can recommend wonderful organic skin care treatments like ours at Parisian's Pure Indulgence. They will help you achieve this goal very nicely, but ultimately what we put in our bodies has more influence on our skin than what we put on it

When you find something you like and it works great, don't you want to tell others? Today, I'm reviewing two type eyeliners -- what I like and don't like about them, along with a not so pleasant shopping experience. The first is a felt tip type liner and the other a fine pencil/crayon type.
How much sunscreen is enough? What SPF level is needed for best protection? Do you know that you need a shot glass full of sunscreen to cover your entire body? A shot glass full ensures proper coverage. This means if you're on a week-long beach vacation, you should go through a bottle of sunscreen every 3-4 days! Why? For optimum protection, the new recommendation is to reapply every 80 minutes. It's also best to stick with lotion type sunscreens versus aerosol. Aerosol types are just not as effective. Sprays are notorious for not providing the SPF number on the label. Much of the spray is blown away in a gentle breeze. Even application is more difficult too.
Should I wear SPF30 or SPF50--What's the difference?
Do you smile when you look at a beautiful flower? Do you get close and take in the scent? It turns out there is good reason for this reaction. Flowers make us happy and there's proof!
Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., a professor of psychology and director of the Emotions Laboratory at Rutgers University, conducted a study on "Flower Power."
In studies of whether flowers make people happy,
Have you seen them? They usually target women over 50 and Wow, do they drag you in! The video ads on Facebook showing a woman with severe under eye bags. Another woman applies an eye creme to the bags, and voila, the bags disappear in 3 minutes. I mean disappear! Well, who doesn't want that, right?
The problem...it's a scam!!
First of all, these results are fake (only happens with surgery), secondly, you get sucked into an auto-ship situation. 2 weeks after receiving your "Free Sample" (only $4.95 shipping!) of the miracle creme, you'll discover a $90 or more charge to your credit card and product you didn't order on the way.
This leads me to the question: Do we have Realistic Expectations?!
I don't think there's a woman alive who wouldn't want to apply a creme, and magically have every wrinkle disappear in 3 minutes! But, here's the bottom line--the only way to get those kinds of results is by a skilled plastic surgeon with scalpel in hand.
For example, when you are using a line that has fabulous organic ingredients the health of your skin is going to improve. When the health of your skin improves, so will the appearance! Fine lines appear smoother, tone improves and skin clarity is enhanced.
It turns out that the secret to having amazing skin is also how you use your products and having a consistent routine. That doesn't mean sunscreen a couple times a week and nighttime serums every few days. You get best, and fastest results with consistency...religious consistency!
Give the products time to work: A moisturizer/serum can plump up fine lines in a few days, but most products take at least 6 weeks to work. Sometimes it can take up to 3 months. Be patient and give the product time to work.
Continue using your treatments, if you want to continue seeing results: People often stop using a product once they see results.
Be a fanatic about sunscreen...I mean fanatic! Don't undo the repair your organic skin care products do for your skin by exposing your face to the sun. If you are using anti-aging skin care, you must use sunscreen in conjunction with your anti-agers. For example, Retinols, are photo-inactivated, meaning exposure to direct sunlight makes them less effective. For this reason, they are normally suggested to be used at night, right before going to bed.
