October Forever Chic Style Flash - The Essential Beauty Products


Fall is here and now is the time to clean out closets, give clothes to charity, update wardrobes and review essential beauty products for the wet and cold winter months.  With extremely sensitive skin, my search for beauty products that do not create a reaction is first and foremost.   Many products contain fragrances,  plant extracts or chemicals which can lead to a nasty red disaster on the face, eyes or body. Listed are five Forever Chic Style recommendations that I use on a daily basis. All work wonders for my sensitive skin.


1. The Ultimate Sensitive Skin Body Soap:  Dove Beauty Bar sensitive skin unscented ($3.65 per bar) - Everyday starts with a simple bar of soap.  And, for sensitive skin - Dove is the one to use on a daily basis.   This little bar cleanses, moisturizes, doesn't clog pores, is fragrance free and hypoallergenic.  Widely recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians.  In fact, my dermatologist recommends taking  bar of soap when traveling.  Never use any other if you have sensitive skin.






2.   Essential Body Lotion: Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion ($10.99):   The ultimate body lotion to smooth on after a shower.  The lotion contains ACTIVE NATURALS Colloidal Oatmeal and other ingredients to keep skin moist for 24 hours.   For dry skin, Aveeno is the perfect solution leaving skin soft, smooth and hydrated.  And, it is fragrance free, nongreasy and noncomedogenic and dermatologist recommended. Perfect for sensitive skin.

3.   Outstanding Face Sunscreen:  Yes, even during the fall and winter months it is important to use a facial sunscreen daily.  Clarins UV Plus HP SPF 40 Day Screen ($40) glides on easily combined with moisturizer and foundation.  Clarins' claims that this sunscreen shields facial skin from daily sun damage with 100% mineral filters.  Fights free radicals and DNA damage deep within the skin’s surface with organic Cantaloupe — Clarins’ powerful new anti-oxidant from Provence. Invisible protection so sheer, it pairs perfectly with any moisturizer.  Again, for sensitive skin, this sunscreen for me leaves my skin rash and irritated free.

4.  Leading Eye & Correction Concealer:  Cle' de Peau's Beaute' Concealer ($70) covers red spots, dark circles etc., beautifully. The formula is made with hyaluronic acid and green tea covering imperfections while illuminating the skin.  The cost is high yet one tube will last one to two years.   Celebrities that use Cle' de Peau's Beaute' Concealer are Nicole Kidman, Kate Moss, Jennifer Connelly, Kate Winslet, Ellen Pompeo, Amanda Seyfried and Jessica Alba as reported in Town & Country, February 2013.

5.  Sensational Lip Moisturizer and Plumper:  Looking for the Angelina Jolie pout?  Search no more - Dior Addict Lip Mazimizer ($31) is the answer.   The blend of collagen and marine-based fillers smooth and moisturize the appearance of the skin.   After 15 days of use, lips will look noticeably fuller and defined.  It is a wonderful base under lipstick or alone.  Pucker up and smile!

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."
Audrey Hepburn
 
  
 
 In other words, it is fine to dress up daily, take care of self, be kind to others, share life and be a beautiful butterfly with courage and happiness. After all, the world is a stage and everyday is your opportunity to play a part in your own play.  So, why not dress for success with a smile!  Audrey did and so can you!

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

"Pick the day. Enjoy it- to the hilt.  The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future." 



"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." The ShiftIn our current upside-down apple pie world, many are struggling with the overload of information on the virus or election. The airwaves, print, social media, or any form of communication is constantly swirling at a high voltage.  The never-ending fables, unrest, destruction, statistics, changes our way of life and follows the path of what I call - The Shift.  A shift that we have no control over but can deal with as gracefully as possible. The Shift where everything we did for pleasure, work or play is on temporary hold or gone forever.  These shifts have happened throughout history.  Be patient. Be kind. It will pass and resolve. The chaos for some may lead to anger, …

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …
