Better Than A Loofa!

I am in love with a new kind of skin exfoliator I recently discovered at a Brooklyn shop that offers unique natural health and beauty products. Called The Ayate Washcloth from Flower Valley, it’s hand woven in Mexico from 100 percent natural agave fiber (from the same plant that gives us Agave syrup), and it works better than any loofa I’ve ever used.

We’re always curious when we’re introduced to an innovative way to use a popular skincare product. So we couldn’t wait to try the I On Youth Collection by Irene Michaels Roll-On Serum, sold exclusively on Amazon, because it’s applied with a rollerball! Irene was a star from General Hospital in the 90s, and she’s got impeccable skin. She created her line on the premise that when we consistently use high-quality skincare products, and maintain a healthy lifestyle, we can look and feel great regardless of our age.

Geri Brin, founder of FabOverFifty, tried Irene’s four products. Here’s the rundown, and Geri’s take on each.

How Probiotics Can Help Revitalize Your Skin

Before FabOverFifty shares a new skin care or beauty product with you, we dig in to understand the science behind the product that can benefit your skin. We also look for brands that have intense research behind their formulas, making them especially appealing and definitely worth passing them along to you.

An exciting new line, called BioEsse, has been structured to interact with the microbes on our skin to brighten, smooth, strengthen, and protect it. That’s great news because our skin is the largest organ in our bodies.

Microbes, for those of us who long ago forgot 8th grade biology, are microorganisms that can only be seen with a microscope, and live inside us, around is, and on us. As a matter of fact, the microbes in our bodies outnumber the cells of normal human bodies by 10 times. 99 percent of microbes are beneficial: They facilitate food digestion to give us energy, synthesize vitamins, and stimulate our immune system and prevent infection.

The answer is simple:

Arm yourself with knowledge about “active” ingredients, which can be critical to the effectiveness of skin care formulas. These are substances that may deliver flawless skin, and understanding them will help you sort through all of the products on the market.
