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!

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
