    Day 8 Ouch! Sunburn-  What's Next?   It starts around 4th of July  when so many of us come back from a fun weekend in the sun, swimming and relaxing on the beach.  We think we were careful about applying sunscreen, but the pain from major sunburn is telling us we missed the boat .       The last thing you want to ignore, is healing after a flawed attempt at protecting your skin .             Peeling  skin that "feels like it's on fire is no FUN," but there are a few things you can do to ease the pain and minimize long-term damage to your skin:   [caption id="attachment_561" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Peeling sunburned back[/caption]     What to do:     The first thing you want to do is get out of the sun/heat.

31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge- Day 6

      Day 6 Purchase a high quality professional- level sunscreen and USE IT!!     All sun protection is not created equal. There is a difference between professional- level sun protection and over-the-counter sun protection.   Being well-informed about which type of sunscreen to purchase lies in understanding the difference between Physical Sunscreens and Chemical Sunscreens.  Choosing a sunscreen that won't irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction is paramount in your choice.   Looking for cutting edge technology? There's a NEW sunscreen that allows the body to produce vitamin D. Deficiencies of vitamin D have been on the rise over the last few decade due to the use of sunscreen and sunblock. "Solar D" was designed with compounds with differing filter compositions to maximize vitamin D  production while maintaining it's sun protection," says Michael...

31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge- Day 5

        Day 5 Purge All Old Skin Care And Make-Up                 Do you look at the expiration dates on the foods you eat?  Of course you do. But many of us pay more attention to the expiration dates on our credit cards than we do to the dates on our beauty products. These's a reason why beauty products  have expiration dates, they can harbor harmful bacteria , yuck!     Does it really matter if you use expired products?   It matters if you want the results you paid for. Using products after the expiration date  can result in harm to the skin (as in the case of an expired sunscreen) as well as getting NO benefit at all from a product. For example, some acne  and anti -aging...

31 Day Skin Care Challenge- Day 4

      Day 4         "Save Your Skin As You Age" Get An Airbrush Tan   Today there are so many  more options when it comes to "getting your bronze on".  I remember the days of burnt, blistered shoulders,  and the only option for walking off the beach without  2nd degree burns was a t-shirt and umbrella. No SPF in those days!       But today is different. Not only do we have self- tanning cremes, gels and lotions, but over the last 5-8 years airbrush tanning has taken over the tanning market.         Airbrush tanning makes it easy to have that glow, quickly! Here's the 411...

31 Day Skin Care Re- Boot Challenge – Day 3

    Day 3   Summer is the perfect time to make some minor "tweaks" in your skin care/beauty  routine to get major payoffs.  Todays challenge is one of those "tweaks" that gives  major payoff, easily and quickly!        Dry Body Brushing   I'm always looking for healthier ways to do anything maybe it's my Native American roots or growing up around strong women who lived truly organic, in every sense of the word.    Dry brushing is a natural skin care practice that has been around for eons, but is one of those "best kept secrets" that once you try it and see and feel  its benefits , you wonder why more people aren't talking about it.   Dry brushing allows you to care for the "largest organ" of the body without any chemicals....

Healthy Summer Eats

  The summer heat calls for easy, healthy, tasty food. Getting together with friends and family for summer fun means plenty of food and drinks! The challenge in the summer is to  not let the party atmosphere derail all the good we do during the week, feeding our body healthy foods.       Some Of My Favs     Collecting recipes is an obsession of mine, it's not as though I cook all the time, as a matter of fact the main cook in our household is my Italian husband, who has a penchant for creating an amazing meal out of very little. He can't leave food alone, if he makes a dish a second, third or fourth time he has to change it, refine or just add "a little...
