Pardon the down time

sick woman

 

Please excuse the lack of posts this  week. I picked up a bad stomach virus and spent the week battling nausea, fever, fatigue and stomach pains that I am pretty sure where worse than labor pains. Ended up in urgent care getting an IV for dehydration. But I have made it over the hard part and am on the mend. I am sorry for neglecting the site this week but if you saw my house you would know this wasn’t the only ball I dropped.

I have been trying some great new products over the last month. A great skincare line, self tanners, gel polish and even coloring my own hair and then having to fix it. I will be back on Monday with lots of reviews to help you get the best bang for your beauty buck.

 

Have a wonderful weekend and stay healthy!!!

Have you been watching the news? Superstorm “Bering Bomb” is upon the US – and I heard some states will see temps drop by 40 degrees or more! It’s time to take care of that skin of yours! As Aveeno Ambassadors, Make Her Up has some great tips for keeping your skin nourished this cold winter!

It’s November, which means the onset of colder temperatures and the start of National Healthy Skin Month! As temperatures and humidity drop, unpleasant changes can start to affect your skin. Your facial skin can become vulnerable, especially if you tend to suffer from redness and dryness. That’s why it’s important to follow a winter skin care regimen specifically to care for your facial skin.

In celebration of National Healthy Skin Month, dermatologist Dr. Lisa Chipps is revealing a few simple tips to keep your complexion looking its best this month and all winter long!

· Both morning and night, cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser like AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Foaming Cleanser. Its gentle formula will help prevent over-drying or aggravating sensitive skin.

o If you wear make-up try AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Makeup Removing Wipes to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup before you go to bed.

· Moisture is essential during the winter months. After you wash your face, gently pat it dry and immediately apply a good moisturizer to prevent moisture loss. Be sure to reach for a moisturizer with a SPF of 30 or higher. SPF is always important – yes, even in the winter! This helps to protect against aging skin concerns, sunburns and skin cancers caused by UV rays reflecting off of the snow and ice.

· And last, but not least, general health and well-being promote great looking skin year-round. Eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, sleep – seven to eight hours daily, and manage your stress for a beautiful, healthy looking complexion.

AVEENO® offers a wide range of products to meet your winter skin care needs. Click here to view a full range of AVEENO® Face offerings.
