What’s So “Graceful” About Aging This Way?

One of the beauties of aging is learning to figure yourself out. Maybe you wore mini skirts, shoulder pads and big hair in the 80s because everyone else did. But today, your style is your own, and you love it!

Perhaps you’ve let your hair go gray, you don’t wear a stitch of makeup, and your go-to pieces are jeans and white shirts. Or, you adore the auburn hair color you use, the creamy blush and lipstick you discovered last year, and your closet full of sweaters and skirts.

Bah humbug to “growing old gracefully,” whatever that means, anyway. Grow old however YOU want. And let your sisters grow old just the way THEY WANT, too.

LET US KNOW HOW YOU’RE DOING IT,
BY ANSWERING THE ANONYMOUS QUESTIONS BELOW.

FOFace Washing 101

Ask a group of dermatologists for tips on the most effective ways to wash your face, and you’ll likely get a spectrum of opinions. Some swear soap is a no-no for anyone; others say it’s fine for certain complexions. Some say we should use a cleanser only at night, water only in the morning. Others say it’s perfectly fine to apply cleanser in the morning and at night.

The texture and appearance of our skin are as different as our personalities. Betsy has dry, rough skin. Sally’s is smooth and sensitive. And Nancy’s skin is overly oily. So, each woman should choose a cleansing product that works most effectively on her type of complexion. The mind-boggling number of products on the market, however, often makes it impossible to know which one will actually suit us best. (more…)

A Skin Care Line To Combat Winter Woes

As new skin care products come into the market to help aging skin, not to mention to keep younger skin looking good, it’s hard not to want to try each one.

Although we can’t do that, it is a good idea to rotate brands every few months, to stimulate the skin cells. Also, try to learn as much about each product’s ingredients before you buy it, since products work differently on different women.

We bring you information today about Junetics, an energy-powered skincare brand with a proprietary ingredient complex that boosts cell-to-cell communications, helping to restore the appearance of more youthful skin. By working on a cellular level, the Junetics line helps your skin cells regenerate and become stronger, and combats the signs of aging skin, including loss of radiance, uneven tone, lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and diminished hydration.

The 4 Hexes Of Aging Hair

If you’re one of the lucky ones, you still have a full head of thick, shiny, healthy-looking hair. But, if you’re starting to notice more and more gray strands popping up, and your hair is going from bouncy to brittle, you can take steps to get it back into shape.

Understanding why the four hair hexes have come to visit will help you know how to banish them!


HEX #1 DULLNESS

Dry brittle hair is dull, frizzy and lifeless-looking hair. No luster. No sheen. Here’s why: Hair consists of three layers. When hair is healthy, the outer layer thoroughly protects the inner layers. Natural oils in the outer layer also reflect light, making your hair shiny. When hair is dry, the outer layer breaks down, which causes the hair to appear dull and unhealthy. (more…)
