'Sixty is the new 40.' It's a common aphorism we've heard for some time now, doubtless meant to calm us baby boomers who are growing so long in the tooth that we now need two hands to hold our toothbrushes. And reassuring it indeed is.
After the ravages of summer sun and increased opportunities for free radical damage (aka aging), your skin needs a bit of extra help to recover its glow.
Around the table our ages ranged from 48-59, of which I'm on the lower end, but not lowest (though I'm holding on to that like a pageant girls' sash), so after catching up with the lives of our mostly grown kids, you can imagine conversation quickly moved to how our bodies have morphed over the years. Not just weight gain, but some seismic shifting too.
Some of the most beautiful women I know are over 40 and all seem to have one thing in common: Dr. David Colbert!
I've always believed this: 'If you're too tired to wash and cleanse your face at night, at least splash a lot of warm-hot water and use a cotton ball toner to wipe away the day's debris.'
It didn't come early in my career (understatement, as 59 years old is a dinosaur in the youth-obsessed fashion industry), but maybe the best should be saved for last... My prophecy at the age of 4 took a bit longer to come true than imagined, but it's all about the journey.

It seems Barbie's mid-life crisis started around five years ago when this former beauty queen was traumatized after receiving her AARP card in the mail. Recent tattoos, endless diets, strict workout regimens, and bizarre anti-aging rituals- yep, her mid-life crisis was in full swing. Who can blame her?
Now I know that JLo is beautiful, that JLo is talented, that JLo has been taking care of her skin. And I know that JLo looks amazing at 44. With makeup, without makeup, either way. But I'm calling bullshit on JLo's "I Just Woke Up Like This Selfie" -- on a technicality.
Speaking at the 7th International Conference of the Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia and Wasting Disorders (SCWD), Professor Maria Fiatarone from the U...
Beth sent me off to a makeup artist who spackled and painted and glued my face until I looked better than I ever knew I could.
I may be holding on (not so gracefully) to 39 with every ounce of my being, but lately I have noticed a few things that may be indicators that I really am older than I think I am...
I'm not a quick-fix person when it comes to beauty. I know that eye bags and wrinkles that took years to develop cannot be treated in a few hours.
