Beauty and Health are important in helping people feel good and look good from the inside out. We also have awesome fashion tips.

What is the best skin care for aging skin?

Can a red light 5 minutes a day take years off my face? When I say years I mean the parts that now smash together like wrapping paper at a two year old’s birthday party. You know how your skin use to just lay flat and now it has more ripples than the Atlantic on a windy day. That is where I currently am. It looks like I am thinking when I am not. That isn’t the half of my problem.

Have you ever had your kids or in my case my husband spit on their finger and try to wipe off your age spot? I did. I was like that is part of my face. He then looks at me and says, “I am sorry. It looks good.” I love him for that but we all know he was lying or why did he put spit on his finger to try and scrub it off if it “looked good.” I decided I wanted a face people didn’t spit on.

I am entering the red light zone.

I am using the RejuvaliteMD promises over time to help me replace by reducing the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and age spots by improving skin laxity and promoting collagen production.

I am in my 40’s and my skin has changed for the worse. Do you ever feel like you are in a battle to try to live life and not look like life has lived you? If you told me in teens that my skin would look like this after babies.

How to Fix a Straw Hat

How do you fix a straw hat?

There are a couple of ways to save your straw hat. I know I really need this post because I frankly ruin my hats. I have kids and they always get crushed. That is why it is so great to know that you can reshape your straw hat.

How to reshape straw hats

The first thing you need to do is get gloves, a heat source that will produce steam. You can use a steamer, iron, or a tea pot. Then you will need towels and something heavy to hold down the hat.

Those straw hats can be fixed to its former glory. The way that I reshaped mine was to stuff it with a damp towel. Then I put on my gloves and steamed the hat once it was wet I stretched it and put cans on top of it until it dried.

I have also used this method on how to fix a straw hat You start again with a damp towel and fill the portion of the hat where your head goes. Then you put a damp clothe under the brim of the hat. You then put a towel on top. You turn on the iron on medium heat.

Then you will need to let the hat dry. Do not attempt to put it on until it is dry. You can also put weighted items on the top of the hat until dried. This is a great way rescue those straw hats.

Use it or Lose it Your Real Advice On Beauty

Do you wonder if it works? Do you also watch TV, read magazines, look at social media and see ads for products that advertise beauty feats. I do. I then go out and buy the product and try it. I just can’t help myself. I want to see if they are being truthful or not. That is what I tell myself the truth is I want to see if it works.

I struggle with the following beauty concerns: dark eye circles, cellulite (my husband loves the dimples I do not), wrinkles between my brows, wrinkles near my eyes, and dark spots, and I also have grey hair that is growing out faster these days.

I am sure I am not the only one so I decided to create a use it or lose it list for beauty products I plan to try out.

Neutrogena Wrinkle Release- Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Regenerating Face Cream & Hyaluronic Acid Anti Wrinkle Face Moisturizer, Neck Cream, with Hyaluronic Acid & Retinol, 1.7

This is the ad and my before.

This is the video of me before I tried the product it is easier to see my issues in a video.

I tried the product for 8 days. I applied it as directed and I added the extra serum to see if I could deliver some noticeable results. I didn’t see anything during the time. The product made my skin softer but I wanted fast action wrinkle removal.

This is me after

There was a time when my feet walked through sand whose grains were as fine as silk. There was a time I wore heels that were tall, delicate, and the envy of all. There were times when I would sneak into the spa and enjoy body scrubs from head to toe. There were times when I could read a book without pictures. That was before all this happened.

It started 14 years ago, the decline of my me time. It began in a Chinese restaurant of all places. I had just had a cup of tea saying a spot of tea in a Chinese restaurant doesn’t sound correct. I had just ordered, and then I had to go to the ladies room. I excused myself. I began to cry. I am not sure why I was crying. The tea had appeared and my day was going well. I was having lunch with the love of my life, my husband but I couldn’t stop crying. I knew then and there what was wrong but I needed to see for sure.

I rushed to the store, and I grabbed the test. I took the test and just like I did in school. I passed with flying colors or in this case a red line. We were having a baby. I can’t describe how happy I was, but I can tell you it was better news than thinking I lost my mind. I mean who cries over tea at a Chinese restaurant. That was the day my life changed. I began to live for my child. I gave up the fancy things in life so he could have a perfect life but I never gave up my desire to be pampered. I just had to make it fit in my budget.

That is how I came to make body scrubs. These are some Homemade Body Scrubs You’ll Love!

Pamper yourself by having a spa in your home. Check out these homemade body scrub recipes you'll love.

Here’s my Teeth Whitening Before and After result

I am sure you know the first thing people notice about you is your smile. It is something that can’t be taken for granted. I know it is harsh to say, but people judge you because of your teeth. I used to not smile as often because my teeth were yellow. I tried everything even that glo machine. It did work but it was expensive to keep doing the refill trays, and it took time out of my life. I was also not able to talk and had to stay still which isn’t fun if you are a mom to three kids. You know they did everything possible to make my life difficult when I was in the middle of a teeth whitening treatment.
