The Best Christmas Gift Ever!
When I traveled to Dubai years ago, I was introduced to a most ingenious invention that made toilet tissue somewhat obsolete.

When Topical Skincare is Not Enough
Slathering – one of my favorite words to describe how skincare is applied. Generously applying cleansers, serums and treatments has its rewards as cell turnover reveals newer looking skin but after years of constant maintenance, do you realize that topical skincare is not enough to maintain the youthful visage that you crave? It’s disheartening to…Read More
What Will Your Face Look Like in 2023?
Looking in the mirror can be a real bummer, especially when you see a not so youthful face looking back at you. Somedays your face looks better than ever, other days not so much.

My Favorite “Anti-Aging Detox Food” After a Holiday Pig Out!
Overindulging in yummy foods is easy for me! I love terrific, tasty, well-seasoned and expertly prepared dishes of all kinds.

Rarely, rarely do I consume wine…Read More
Can Wrinkles Be Erased?
Wrinkles form in the most interesting ways – some wrinkles seem to be superficial, yet others are deep and very visible. Wrinkles that are formed in the forehead, those pesky 11’s and the very revealing horizontal lines, are there because of two very distinct repetitive motions. Lifting your forehead as you speak will indeed create…Read More
Resting Those Tiny Facial Muscles is Good for You!
That statement might sound like a misnomer but it’s true! Do you work out regularly at the spa or gym? Do you train 3 to 5 days a week? Most who train their bodies prefer 30 minutes five times a week. Physical activity can be moderate to intense depending on your goal because body building…Read More
Hydra C – 12% Vitamin C + Hyaluronic Serum is a Winner!

Maybe you’ve tried a multitude of products, most of us have, but now it’s time to seriously consider…Read More
“Over the River and Thru the Woods…”
Remember singing these words when you were a kid?

We looked forward to turkey with all the trimmings. Heaps…Read More

How Do Breads, Rolls, Pies, Cakes and Pastry Fit into My Diet?

Do You Chew on One Side of Your Mouth?
I can’t help myself. I watch faces. Young faces, teen faces, middle age faces, elderly faces…faces fascinate me! While having lunch with friends I sat across from a 60-ish woman who has not had any face work or injections. She occasionally performs Facial Magic® and it shows. She’s fairly fastidious regarding skincare although she confessed, she had…Read More
