Green Masks and Comb Overs: Who Says Being Ugly is Easy? Not Coaches on the Edge!

Laurie: My peanut butter crackers are back! Just when I had resolved myself to the reality that those yummy malt crackers with once-possibly-salmonella-infected peanut butter paste in between were a thing of the past, Wal-Mart’s came through again. And they were on sale to boot (wonder what “to boot” means?)! This morning as I enjoyed my ritualistic two crackers for the first time in many months, I mused about where this established habit had come from? Me, of course but that made my mind jump to that always-nagging question “Why?” ...more

Sunscreen - My One Absolute Essential

It's the end of August, the sun is beating down upon us and way too many people I know do not put sunscreen on everyday. Not even on days where they know they will be outdoors all day. This fact leaves me totally baffled and not a little frustrated. My grandmother is a skin cancer survivor. She has fair skin, but tanned with abandon in her teens and twenties because that's what people did and nobody knew that it might be hurting them. She has an excuse! We don't! ...more

My Four Favorite Products Right Now

Look, I admit it, I'm fickle. The things I like are constantly changing, and while I do have a few constant beauty must-haves---I have yet to go a couple of weeks without buying Cover Girl's Lipslick in Daring, for example---I have no problem with switching pretty much everything else out whenever I feel like it.

Science Advances The Best Eye Creams

I have been a follower of the anti aging industry for quite some time. In fact, my job as public relations marketing representative has me all over the U.S. and Europe looking for the latest and greatest information on skin care products.  So far, I've done a lot of studies and seen a lot of presentations on eye creams. Eye creams are considered any under-eye skin care application that fights the below signs of aging: ...more

St. Tropez Self Tanner (because when you LIVE in Florida, you don't actually go to the beach)

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and St. Tropez. Despite the fact that I have a number of scars all over my body from suspicious moles my derm removed, I look better tan. Some people look beautiful pale -- I look like I've got the flu. But, between the fact that it is hot as all get out in Florida during the summer and, you know, that whole wanting to avoid skin cancer thing, I don't get much of a natural tan. ...more
