If our hair really is the first thing someone notices about us, we better start paying some more attention to it! Here are 10 tips for younger-looking locks:
Talk to five women and they’ll have five different opinions about their hair color, your hair color, and everyone else’s hair color. Doesn’t matter how much we have on our minds; we women can always make room to discuss hair color. With that in mind, let us know what’s on your mind–and on your head!
Until recently, those of us in the media would get press releases touting “revolutionary” new products that promised to work “wonders” on aging skin, but their “miraculous” ingredients were complete mysteries. Although the jars featured laundry lists of ingredients, we had no idea what any of them did. That’s because they did precious little to replenish the hydration and elasticity our skin loses as we get older. All they seemed to do was give our skin a bit more of a healthy “glow” for a couple of hours.
Now, more scientists working in the beauty industry are discovering how they can infuse their products with the essential moisture and proteins that will truly help revitalize our skin beneath the epidermis, not just perk it up on the surface. One of the newest is called BIOSSANCE The Revitalizer, which contains something called Neossance Squalane, a rich, plant-derived emollient that rapidly absorbs into the skin to instantly hydrate, while locking in essential moisture. Squalane, as a matter of fact, is a vital moisturizer found in our bodies, which lubricates and protects the skin.
BIOSSANCE is free of parabens and is non-comedogenic (won’t cause acne) and hypoallergenic. Ninety-five percent (95%) of the women who tested it agreed that their skin felt instantly hydrated and appeared softer and smoother after one week. Eighty-four percent (84%) of the women agreed that their skin felt revitalized after two weeks.
“I have been applying about three drops of BIOSSANCE to my cleansed face and neck, morning and evening, for about two weeks, and can attest to the fact that it absorbs in seconds and has definitely made my skin feel softer and smoother. Although it’s a clear oil, it doesn’t make my skin feel the least bit oily. It’s a great booster for my moisturizer,” said Geri Brin, founder of FabOverFifty.com.
“I’ve even rubbed a bit of BIOSSANCE onto my hair for extra shine and softness. The company says we can also use it on our cuticles to prevent them from drying out. It costs $58 for 1.7 oz, which is pretty reasonable since I expect to get months of use from the bottle. The top doubles as a dropper, which prevents me from using too much or from accidental spills,” Geri added.
Besides helping to give our skin new life, BIOSSANCE is helping to save children with malaria, which causes the death of over 2 million children under 5 years old each year. Every 30 seconds, a child dies of malaria in Africa, where it is a constant threat. BIOSSANCE will provide a malaria cure to a child at a rural clinic in Uganda for each bottle sold. Its goal is to provide 10,000 cures before the end of June.

After spending 18 years leading the innovation and research teams at Estée Lauder, Jules Zecchino was determined to use his extensive knowledge of the most potent ingredients to create a superior anti-aging product. Yesterday, Jules and his team launched Erasa XEP 30 ($160 for 1.7 fl oz).
“Erasa XEP 30 is the single most technically advanced, anti-aging concentrate in the high-end professional product performance arena. It has been created to deliver a total activity of anti-aging benefits, normally requiring three or more products,” Jules claims.
You’ve undoubtedly heard the term “match made in heaven,” referring to two people who are perfect together. I can’t tell you about too many of those, but I can tell you about a “beauty match made in heaven”: Pure Marula Facial Oil and the JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser. I’ve written extensively about what makes each product so effective on its own. But when they’re used together, which I’ve been doing for the past few months, each makes the other work even better on my skin.
One of the perks of running FabOverFifty is getting to test new products that promise to help my aging skin recapture a bit of youth. Happily, many companies are making great advances in the science of beauty and developing products that really do work, but trying them is the only way to discover if they stand up to their claims. Since each of us can’t buy every product we read about , we often rely on our FOF sisters to give us the scoop.
Well, I’m here today to tell you that the latest product I’ve tried, Pure Marula Facial Oil, is a winner.
Even if you’ve been lucky enough to have “good skin” your entire life, chances are you’re going to get blemishes here and there, as an adult.
A breakout can be provoked by anything from hormonal changes during perimenopause, to a spike in blood sugar from eating simple carbs and sugars. Stress also can trigger the release of cortisol, a hormone that tells your body to produce more pore-clogging oil, according to an article on prevention.com.
I’ve become A Believer (in anti-aging products, that is)!
Not in every single one of them, mind you, but in those backed by scientific fact. While science was my least favorite subject in school, I understand this much: If you can prove it, it’s true!
I’ve had the opportunity during the last five years, in my role at FabOverFifty, to try out numerous products, from the completely fab Squatty Potty, which takes the strain out of going to the bathroom (literally and figuratively) to the ingenious JeNu, the sonic device that helps our beauty products absorb three times better into our skin. The efficacy of these two products is solidly based on the science of our epidermis and sphincter muscle.
