    Winter sucks.  Nothing new there.  In anticipation of our upcoming vacation out west, I tried on some of my shorts. Oh crap!  I’ve gained a few pounds over the winter, and now all of my summer clothes are too tight.  I just can’t seem to get motivated to exercise. I was doing so well.  I lost 57 pounds five years ago, after having been overweight most of my adult life.  I gained 20 pounds back, but have maintained my weight for four years.  It is so hard to lose weight when you get older. One thing for sure, I will never be skinny, and that’s okay with me.  When you…
  • Cold Sores or Fever Blisters? They’re One and the Same!

    One of the most pesky facial skin blemishes is the notorious cold sore, aka fever blister. The placement is awkward, uncomfortable, and painfully obvious to anyone when you speak. Over time, many people become self-conscious and devise creative methods to cover their mouths or hide the sore. Unfortunately, unlike many other skin blemishes, it is not advisable to cover up a cold sore with makeup. Even if you are determined to try, the crust and scab make it difficult. It may seem contradictory to call the same virus by “cold” and “hot (fever)” monikers, but…

    I’m delighted to have a guest on my blog today. Author Samantha Dunaway Bryant has been kind enough to visit and introduce herself and her upcoming book to us. The page is yours, Samantha. Growing up to be Jo March I was always going to be a writer. You know, when I grew up. I had romantic visions of what that meant–mostly drawn from Louisa May Alcott’s Jo March in Little Women. I imagined it involving a lot of time spent alone in a lovely room (preferably a turret with a fireplace) making things up. It may sound solitary, but that was fine with me; I was a solitary child,…

  • Gloves & Skin Protection: They Just Fit

    As the saying goes, if you want to know a woman’s real age, look at her hands. How do the backs of your hands look? How about your mother’s or your grandmother’s? You might think that wearing gloves for sun protection is a bit excessive.  According to Dr. Bailey, your hands are just as susceptible to sun damage as your delicate facial skin. “In fact,” Dr. Bailey wrote, “in my dermatology practice, I often see the same amount of sun damage on the back of the hands that I see on the face.” This is because your hands are always out in the sun doing things for you, from…
  • Should You Apply Sunscreen to Your Face & Ears Even If You Wear a Hat?

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    23 Feb 2015 | 12:58 pm
    Another way to look at this question is: how dangerous is reflected UV light? It’s tempting to believe that shade totally protects your skin, but think about it for a minute. We know that light rays bounce off things just like balls do. When UV rays hit pavement they bounce upwards. When UV rays hit a sunny wall they bounce off too – yes – potentially into the shade. If that shade is created by your hat, then the rays hit your skin.   So … the bottom line is that if the sun is up and you are outdoors, your skin will get some UV ray exposure. This reflected exposure…
  • Nail Care Secrets for the Winter Months

    Do you have dry, cracked, splitting fingernails during the winter months? Have you tried several methods to fix your dry nails with little success? It’s not just your skin that dries out during the winter months; your nails do too! Nails are part of the integumentary system (skin) of your body and they develop from the outer layer of your skin called the epidermis. The exact same cells that form the outer layer of your skin also form your nails. These cells harden more in your nails, but structurally they share many common features and needs. Natural oils hold together the different…

    One of the most underused and overlooked building blocks of good skin isn’t a miracle drug or an expensive over-the-counter cream you buy in stores. In fact, chances are you have access to this right now for free. We’re talking about the most common substance on earth -  water! Here are a few important (and helpful) facts about water: While the daily recommended amount of water is eight cups per day, not all of this water must be consumed in the liquid form.

    Urinary incontinence during and post menopause... Like most menopause symptoms, UI or a weak bladder is caused by declining oestrogen and progesterone levels during peri menopause and low levels of both in post-menopause. It becomes more prevalent in post-menopausal women because these hormones are now at an all time low.Oestrogen is responsible for strengthening the bladder and urethra. Low levels of oestrogen causes thinning of tissues in the bladder and urethra, which weakens the muscles and they can no longer hold back urine when you cough, exercise, sneeze, laugh, or lift something…
