I really like this skin care system

If you remember a few weeks ago, I told you all I was in Florida for Mia's second birthday. We had a great time in the sun and with Mickey Mouse, but the Florida weather left its mark on my skin. The humidity is not something I miss from living there, but I will say that it made my hair look absolutely fantastic. I wish I could say the same about my skin, though. A few of you warned me about the effect it would have on my face....and I should have listened. I never do. Listen, that is.  Read more

Pimple in a wrinkle? Not fun.

As I get older, my skin is beginning to revolt. I have more breakouts now at 35 than I did as a teenager. My new personal favorite: Getting a pimple in a wrinkle. Not awesome.  I was recently given the opportunity to try the new Olay Professional Pro-X Clear Line, which is oil-free and specifically designed with the needs of mature skin in mind. It also contains clinically proven fancy face technology to control breakouts PLUS reduce the appearance of pores and refine texture in less than a month.  Read more

Face Matters … and Olay helps!

A few months ago I wrote a post about my struggles with acne as an adult. I was blown away by the response that I received so I wanted to give you an update on how things are going. Here is some background for newer readers. In late 2010 I began to experience breakouts on my face. I have always had the occasional spot here and there but this has been constant for nine months. I honestly can’t remember the last time that my skin was 100% clear.  Read more

Best Face Forward

The one piece of advice that my mother gave me in my youth, that I actually didn't fight her on, was the need to take care of my skin.  From the time I first flirted with baby blue eyeshadow and matching blue mascara for trips to the roller rink, she took the time to instruct me on the importance of always removing my makeup, and washing and moisturizing my skin both morning and night.  Read more

40-something Skin Care

I have noticed more and more as I creep into my forty-somethings that my skin is undergoing changes. I don't have those horrible acne outbreaks all over my face like I did as a teen - and for the most part I can rejoice that I had a very brief teen acne period - but I have always had the dreaded T zone with my chin, nose and forehead being an oil slick. As I hit the four decade mark I started noticing changes.  Read more

Growing older just like I deserve to.

I Ask: What Do You Like About Growing Up? There are a lot things about growing up that aren't cool. Like the gray hairs that showed up in my early 20s. Or the strange stomach pooch that my OB so proudly gave me post-Cesarean. But I comfort myself with my newfound love of my own oddness.  Read more

Your skin will thank you!

I recently had the opportunity to try the new Olay Professional Pro-X Clear Line.  Did you know over half of women in the U.S. between the ages of 25 and 58 have some form of acne?  The past few weeks I’ve been using these products diligently and have definitely noticed smoother skin and my pores seem smaller!  Read more

It's time to embrace my face

The one thing I always wanted was a beautiful, clear complexion so that I didn't have to wear makeup, but I have been plagued by constant, persistent acne all of my life. I spent a couple of my high school years rebelling against makeup altogether, and hoping my skin would miraculously clear up and be beautiful on its own. It didn't. After I got my eleventh grade school pictures back I wanted to burn them. Acne made me feel ugly and ashamed.  Read more

My skin is not what it was 20 years ago

I've mentioned before that one of the most annoying parts of getting older is something I never expected - acne. I have more breakouts now than I ever did as a teenager. One of the greatest signs of being kicked out of Eden is that I am combating gray hair and zits simultaneously. It's just not right.  I've spent a lot of time with recently waxed furrowed brows in the acne aisle at a drugstore trying to figure out how to treat it. Because y'all know, just like everything else the skin is not what it was twenty years ago.  Read more

Pimples have followed me from my teens.

When I was a teenager, I comforted myself with the knowledge that if I had to get old, at least I wouldn't have to deal with pimples anymore.  Yeah. Still laughing about that one.  I was lucky not to have a horrible experience with acne during my adolescence, but I can't say the pimples have gotten much better since then, either. In my twenties, a hot humid climate combined with the makeup I wore on television news every day actually prompted me to get a prescription to deal with the pimples. Once I got out of the TV business, the breakouts went away, at least until recently.  Read more
