Spoiler Alert: If you love a giveaway (and who doesn’t?), read all the way through!
As I get older, I realize that this so-called thing, “natural beauty,” gets more and more expensive as we age.
I think I’d have a lot more money – and a lot more time – if I didn’t care so much about covering my gray, having nice nails (to deflect from the age spots on my hands), taming my frizz and smoothing my wrinkles; but I’m not one of those women who doesn’t mind aging naturally.
I feel better when I look good; what’s wrong with that, really?
I used to feel funny about admitting that, fearing I’d come off as vain, shallow, superficial or worse. But I’m none of those things, so no apologies necessary from me. My age, having given me gray hair and wrinkles, has also given me the gift of being able to say, “If you wanna judge me, go ahead…that’s not my problem.”
What’s the point of all this, you ask? Well if you’re in my camp (or even if your not), there’s no doubt you’d love the chance to win some beauty products to help women like me (us?), who like to look
good better their best.
This is a great giveaway! There are five products – and that means there will be five winners. It doesn’t get much better than that.
If only it was that easy for our bodies…if your hair is thinning and/or you want stronger, healthier hair, there’s Keranique Hair Regrowth System. It includes shampoo, conditioner, two Volumizing Lifting Sprays and two Hair Regrowth Treatments (which include 2% Minoxidil, which is the only FDA-approved, non-prescription treatment for hair loss). Here’s some heft that you’ll gladly welcome.
Have you noticed that after this harsh winter, your hair and nails are lifeless and breaking? And no matter how much moisturizer you use, it doesn’t help much? The Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails multivitamin by Natures Bounty contains antioxidant Vitamins E and C plus the B-vitamin biotin to help repair the damage. It’ll be nice to restore your former luster, don’t you think?
Getting older leads to thinning hair – not just on your head. (Have you checked out your eyelashes and eyebrows lately? Yeah, I thought so.) This is one of my faves – it is amazing how it’s made a huge difference for me. Brush RapidLash Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancing Serum along your lash line (it can also be used on brows) and in 30 days, you’ll see a difference that will amaze you.
We all know by now that baking in the sun is a no-no; not only for the health of your skin but for the wrinkles it encourages. But a tan looks good (and surprisingly healthy, even though it’s not), I know. Although self-tanner has come a long way since the beginning (I was an early adopter, and had to settle for the strange orange-y other-world glow it imparted), sometimes I’d rather not use it, but use a daily bronzer instead. BECCA Bronzing Skin Perfector is a semi-sheer creme that allows you to build and customize a tan that you can blend with foundation or moisturizer to place on those same spots where the sun would deposit its glow – without the damage.
…circles and bags under my eyes, and I don’t like them much. Stress and aging can lead to dark areas and puffiness, and make you look tired when you’re not. That’s when wearing dark glasses can sometimes come in handy, but since that’s not exactly practical, there’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy by First Aid Beauty. You run the stainless steel applicator around the entire eye area and in return you get a soft, universal tint and light reflecting pigments – gotta love those for creating brighter, smoother and less puffy skin. Over time, those dark circles and fine lines will be less and less apparent.
