Anti Aging Skin Care for a body part you don't think of

There is a body part that most (if no all) of us seem to neglect in our beauty regimens. Can you guess what it is?

It's the ears & earlobes!!!

I have heard that the ears continue to grow as we age. That seems to be true when you see old guys with those big, big ears! The ears don't really grow. It can seem like they grow but what is really happening is they are stretching. They stretch due to the breakdown of the elastin and collagen in cartilage that makes up the ears and that ever present pull of gravity. The earlobes can get saggy just like the skin on any other part of our body. UV damage from the sun causes more elastin and collagen breakdown. So what's a girl to do to keep the ears from getting big and flappy? Add the ears to your anti aging skincare routine. 

Apply an anti aging serum to your earlobes as well as your face to help keep them firm and help prevent sagging. 

Anti Aging Cream
Use an anti aging face cream on your earlobes as well as your face after the application of the anti aging serum. Retinol, peptides and hyaluronic acid are great anti aging ingredients to look for in anti aging creams.

Apply daytime moisturizer and/or sunscreen to your face and ears daily to prevent sun damage. Your daytime moisturizer should contain sunscreen.

Light Weight Earrings
Avoid wearing heavy earrings that pull and stretch the earlobes.

Eat Healthy
Eat lots of fruits and veggies that are full of Vitamin C and anti oxidants to fight free radicals and help the body make collagen.

It's a never ending anti aging battle! Everyday. Keep on fighting.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
