Face & Hair
Your Face & Hair Are Ever Changing Because Beauty Evolves Over Time.
As we grow from child to adult, our bone structure changes. Our face evolves. And so does our taste. What we once found beautiful and motivating becomes less so. Fashion changes. Styles change. And we find new ideas and people who inspire us to become better.
As we move through life, we see pictures of ourselves and wonder at the changes. How does the time move so quickly??
But we can be beautiful at any age. We've learned so much about aging that now how you age is up to you!
Fortunately, there are many ways to make sure you like the face you "deserve at 50." There's sunscreen and good skincare. There are skin treatments like Botox, fillers, and micro-needling. There are facelifts and hair restoration. (We're learning more about regrowing hair every day!) And if none of those are your cup of tea, there's exercise, eating right, beauty sleep, and possibly collagen supplements.
I guess what I'm trying to say is this: The world is your oyster! You can meticulously maintain your natural beauty - no matter what your age. OR you can enhance it. But therein lies the beauty (no pun intended!)! The choice is yours. And truly, isn't celebrating your beauty and feeling that inner, quiet confidence what it's all about?
Make the best choice for you! And be the very best you!
So without further ado, below you'll find some articles about ways to maintain (or enhance!) your face and hair. I hope they help!
Thanks for reading! And good luck!

How can someone like me – with curly hair – get straight lashes? It just doesn’t make sense! I’ve used an […]Read More
Botox vs. Baby Botox Gone are the days of the “frozen” look when Botox was new. When actresses like Nicole Kidman and Courtney Cox – and even comedians like Joan Rivers – looked off. That’s the best way I can put it. They looked pretty, but something looked wrong. Nothing you could put your finger […]Read More
You’ve heard the hype. People LOVE Botox & fillers. And you’d like to learn more. But you’re new to medical skincare. How do you know which will work best for you? Botox & Fillers are very different.

FULL DISCLOSURE: Dr. Goesel Anson, plastic surgeon and inventor of the Juverest Pillow sent me this pillow. I didn’t pay for it. I think Dr. Anson meant it as a thank you for quoting her in my post, Beauty Tips for Skin. So she’s a nice lady, right?! She did not ask me to review the […]Read More
Some people hit their 50s and start to think about getting a facelift. I recently met a lady who fit this demographic. I was buying a file cabinet for my business. While I was paying, the lady made polite conversation. She asked what I did. When I answered, her eyes lit up. Then she immediately […]Read More
Skinny eyebrows were HOT in the ’90s, but it’s not the ’90s now. Every decade seems to have its own iconic look. Remember how popular Madonna’s signature “Like a Virgin” look was in the 1980s? Drew Barrymore became a big deal in the 1990s. Everyone wanted brows like hers. And remember Pamela Anderson of Baywatch fame? She had […]Read More
What Causes Light Spots? Not long ago, I had a reader call about treating light spots on her face. She got them after a laser treatment. When your skin loses color like hers did, it’s called hypopigmentation. It often happens after laser treatments that target one specific color – called a chromophore. Lasers that work […]Read More
