Do you have oily or combination skin? You may want to consider incorporating charcoal into your skin care regimen.
Sure, charcoal is totally on trend right now and may seem like a fad, but it’s for good reason. Charcoal absorbs oil and draws out toxins and bacteria from the skin.
Those of us with this skin type know that excess oil leads to clogged pores, which leads to blemishes. Bacteria, transferred by way of constantly touching your face or even tampering with those blemishes, only leads to more blemishes. It’s a vicious cycle my friends.
I decided to give a few charcoal products a try (and my teen son’s were also game to clear up their acne.)
These are the current charcoal skin care products in my shower right now: Read more
Little did I know when growing up on the beaches of Rhode Island, that the wavy hair that came naturally among the sand and surf, would be a hairstyle I would try so hard to achieve as an adult.
While my hair does have a slight natural wave to it, it’s not really the kind that magazine hair is made of. Pinterest is full of how to get beach wavy hair tutorials that include curling wands, flat irons and braiding your hair before bed… but let me be honest with you, I prefer to do some things the easy way.

The holiday travel season is officially upon us so I’ve decided to share some of my favorite travel friendly beauty products in hopes that it will make this holiday travel season a bit less stressful…and germ free.

The cool aloe mist soothes dry skin and doubles an anti-bacterial, which is important in such an enclosed environment where air is re-circulated. Just spray it around your personal space prior to boarding for a relaxing scent and to ward off those airplane germs. Read more
Disclosure: Thanks to RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I’m getting my skin ready for the holidays as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #WomenWhoRoC
The holidays are finally here, which seems a bit unreal, especially here in the Poconos where it hasn’t had accumulative snow yet, making it still feel like September. (There’s something about snow that really gives you that holiday feeling.)
As everyone reaches for their camera to capture the season’s memories, now is the time to have a winter skin care regimen going in full force. Did you begin back when we began talking about holiday skin prep?
Since I know my family will be snapping lots of photos, especially since it is my youngest son’s first Christmas, I really want to look my best. And to be honest, I’m super self conscious about those photos going up on Facebook and my friends from high school secretly judging how I’m aging. (Admit it, it’s something you think about, too.)
