Oil: The Newest Trend that Really Works!

Oil. I have come to love it.  I thought the Midwest winters were tough on my skin but then I moved to Arizona and wow, is that “dry heat” (it’s not just a cliche, it’s also quite true!) ever tough on my skin. My skin gets dry, dry , dry!  For years I’ve used Nivea,  Neutrogena Body Oil and Coconut/Shea Butter. They all worked to varying degree but they didn’t seem to last the whole day.  I also don’t enjoy the smell of coconut so it was time for a better solution.

Oh did I find it!  My skin is significantly better and this particular oil even helps get rid of dark circles under one’s eyes!!!  How’s that for a bonus? Are you ready? Here it is:

Anxiety Solutions That Have Worked For Me

Anxiety.

May I just lay it on the line and say it totally sucks? If you’ve never experienced an anxiety attack, you my friend, are one of the lucky ones.

In my view, its’s one of the most unpleasant sensations we human beings can feel. And panic attacks? Purely the devil’s work!  Psychologists tell us that anxiety tends to manifest whenever we feel unsafe and can range from low-grade discomfort to higher intensity emotions bordering on panic.  Anxiety came on with a vengeance for me when I started peri-menopause. Immediately my doctor wanted to put me on “regular” medication. That certain helped in the short term but I was concerned with the addictive nature of such medication and began investigating other things.

Here are eight things that worked for me:

Listening Your Way To Weight Loss

Oh the New Year is upon us and with its usual resolutions of fitness and dieting! And to kick it all off…

Enter OPRAH!

Oh heavens, the brilliant businesswoman/investor  that she is has struck again and I wish her the very best. But the ads…..”honey chile”???  They make me cringe. I can’t help but adore author  Jennifer Weiner even more for her brilliant New York Times piece about women and the ridiculous never ending quest for perfection. You can find that terrific piece here. And not to be missed,  Bette Midler’s tweet: “I’m glad it was Oprah who got that 5-year $43 million Weight Watchers contract. I would have just spent all on candy.”

All that brilliantly said, I have to say I don’t believe we should give up on the weight loss/fitness journey if that is what we (not others/the media/the magazines) truly want.  But,  I do think we should approach it differently . I’ve found 2 solutions; one of which I’ll discuss today. And guess what. It happens to be FREE!

Brown Spots Be Gone: A natural solution that totally works!

Anybody who’s spent their share of time in the sun suffers from dreaded age spots. (Um, does baby oil & iodine & tin foil  ring a bell? ) In college, we even used to climb on the roof of the Gamma Phi sorority house to get closer to the sun. The damage!

Given I ‘m of a certain age now, I’m a bit obsessed with getting rid of them, especially on my hands!  So I thought I’d share a natural & easy to use solution that has worked for me.  ( I’ve also had great luck with a specific laser that only requires 1 treatment so stay tuned for that future blog post!)

10 seconds to Your BEST FACE Ever (Really)

Okay peeps, this might be my best beauty tip everrrrr. Seriously……!

I hate foundation. Always have; always will. In addition, I think women have a tendency to over apply it or misapply it.  I also think women who use it typically look—well… OLD! ( I can hear that collective shudder)

Bounce on over to BB CREME my lovelies! It’s the Bomb (But please don’t say that out loud on an airplane).
