Give yourself a gift.  Triple book giveaway December 1st.  Enter from link below.

HydracialBoxSo when you are done reading about mature skin care for women in winter weather, then go to the link at the bottom.

You will be entered in a book giveaway for my novel which was finalist in the Eric Hoffer Book Awards 2009.  There are also other boos, fiction and nonfiction.

Something to read this holiday when you are iced or snowed into your home, luxuriating as your surface cells plump up while you wear your Hydracial Skin Moisture Mask?  Or we could choose products that address all your personal complexion, age beauty challenges.

sleeping in heaven smWomen do need special care for their skin in drying winter weather.  So many cleansers, face lotions and anti-aging creams  are made with harsh and drying ingredients.  Alpha hydroxy. Parabens.  Or ingredients that coat the skin instead of moisturize and condition.  So check your products for these coaters.  Glycerin. Petrolatum, don’t care what USP grade. 

Your skin can’t breathe, sweetie.  That’s from Sassy in The Long Journey.

Mature women need skin-cracking, drying, suffocating ingredients in skincare like we need mice hibernating in our toasters.

skincarepackLong story shortest, safety-conscious ingredients.  Neways skincare products offers various choices and are not made with questionable ingredients.  Nothing harsh, abrasive, drying, toxic.  There is nothing less than premium quality about these highly concentrated products.  I think they are exquisite. Cannot describe how happy my skin has been, and I am fifty-two-ish.

For autumn and winter, I am using Extra Gentle Cleanser, Night Science Lotion, Resurrection BioMist Hydrating Activator, and one of their newer products, Hydracial SkinDefense Daily Moisturizer: A Peptide Complex.  The later is a combination of efforts that are proposed by other Neways skincare.  Hydracial also comes in a complete skin care anti-aging system which can be purchased as one personal spa program or separately.  Video  http:// http://www.newaystv.com/english.html  link broken after//

Anti-aging?  That is all the rage on keyphrase searches.  But I call this gentle maturing skin beauty care.  We might embrace our grey hair only one at a time then one day flaunt the luxurious silver sheen that is representing wisdom gained and wrinkles earned.  And shine, it should.  We might befriend our extra width and stability.  Dance naked in the sun.

But we still want our skin to be radiant, no matter how elderly we become.  Imagine living to ninety-seven with sweet luminous wrinkles.

vintage-autoAnd why not?!  Vintage autos that make it past one hundred are admired by all.

Soooo…. ready for your program?  The other safety-conscious products are Lightning; Circles and Lines; Skin Enhancer; Retention Plus; Imperfection Lotion; the new Skin Brightener; Wrinkle Drops for eye lines and Wrinkle Garde.

If  you are considering more than a few of these premium skin care products, reconsider the Hydracial Anti-Aging Skin Care System.   If you are considering injections or surgery, consider this instead too.

Skin cleansers besides the Extra Gentle I chose are… First Impression, TLC Cleansing Lotion and Milky Cleanser for oily skin, drier skin choices.  Resurrection BioMist is for everyone, a supreme body/facial hydration spray made with resurrection plant extract.  Barrier Cream is for environmental protection.  Body lotion, by the way, is their superior Tender Care, all natural with no greasiness.

Winter sun and wind is still sun and wind, only more lively.  Lips?  Lipceuticals. All-weather cream for epidermal moisture level is called Sombrero.  Want to tan without sprays or sun or beds?  Great Tan for streak-free results and no questionable ingredients.

Winter Enhancement. We are taught to listen to the wild.

  • The animals are getting ready for a long winter’s nap.  Perhaps try to sleep more when they sleep more, it is anti-aging serum supreme.
  • Ducks migrated early, seems so.  Try to get to the stores and gatherings earlier and leave earlier, rest more.
  • Robins fluttered out of the upper Midwest much earlier than usual.  We could try fluttering instead of charging toward our goals, give ourselves extra time to reduce stress.
  • Deer have been deeper in the forest than ever, we don’t see them lately.  Perhaps we can duck down and read a good book unnoticed for a time.
  • The Farmer’s Almanac is calling for a cooling, not warming.  Maybe we are going to need some extra barrier cream and the gentlest cleansers we ever used because cold means dry, harsh, extreme… it means skin-cracking, lip-splitting conditions.

I remember being in my twenties and going through the itching, splitting and crackling because I did not know any better.  Now I do.  I have premium mature skin products.  Email or call me to help you get what you need.

~And she was at peace…

December 24, 2008

spiritual awakening for life work We all need our magic spiritual train in life. What a blessing to find that magic when we are three.

I cannot stand waiting for Christmas just for my granddaughter to be able to open her gift. This year Thomas and friends is the magic Christmas present. I traded gifts with my daughter so they could give the train to her, but that doesn’t matter. Well, as long as I’m not the one giving jeans, so when she sees nothing fun in the bag says, “It’s gone.”

You understand if you have been a parent of small children, even older ones, they are so excited for a special gift that may unlock the world for them. Music, art, games, skates, globes, strobe lights, dolls. It’s all good. But does the gift match the child?

My daughter loved her bicycle, and she always was a local round-about. She loved the books, and she is an editor and writer. Loved the six-year-old cat that is still alive eighteen years later, still living with me, torturing me. Not her, the cat.  She walked on the guitar and dissected the dolls, except Cabbage Patch Stacey.

Point is the perfect Christmas gift for a child is magic for their life. The gift is a life awakening experience. Their spiritual blossoming. My belief system also includes Christmas gifts as an awakening to the child’s past lives, but that is just me believing.

This brings us to the magic train set for my granddaughter. I thought I would buy a Cabbage Patch like Stacey. My granddaughter is half way to four, it is time. I considered a little dish set, play dough and a sled. Lame basics.

While I could not find all the basics, my granddaughter and daughter were missing in a worldwide toy store. We finally met again. I am told they found the perfect present. The entire time the little one had been engrossed with a Thomas and Friends train set. Quietly enthralled and at peace.

Yes, at peace.thomas-and-friends-christmas-story

Imagine what these computer toys do to our children. They make us crazy. Ages one to two, she could not quite press play buttons for music or  pads on some learning games. I felt her solar plexus rage, I want to scream obscenities and shake my computer too. Computer hell at age one.

I witnessed my granddaughter, at age three, bashing the fake cell phone against her palm because the child was speaking plain English and the computerized message was redundant. Come on. We’re going to have a country of really ticked off little kids running around.

But the train is magic. The train touched this child’s heart. I believe it speaks to her of past lives. Take what you need here and leave the rest, that’s okay. I believe the train is a life training tool for her future. A spiritual awakening for work she will bring to this world that touches hundreds of thousands of lives.

Will she be a writer of train history? Photographer or illustrator of books? Programmer of new technology?  An engineer for green-powered locally run trains in our cultural return to ecological sustainability. Will she be involved in the movement that pulls vintage trains from their graveyards to recycle them for the coming age of small communities around North America where the local market is actually local, and community’s wide market narrowed to five-hundred square miles? When engineers and drivers come home evenings. When family is reunited.

The magic train I hid under my huge coat. Yes, I paid for it, smile. But before we could leave the worldwide toy store, my daughter pried our pleading, but courageous and well-mannered little one from the exhibit train’s magical presence. A heart-rending scene without a tantrum.

The miracle happened. We passed a DVD box on a corner shelf three aisles away, completely out of place, at my eye-level, on its back no less. Forlorn and affordable with a ripped corner. Thomas’ smiling face, the movie, a caboose, even a little book. Look, I show my daughter who was beside herself with empathy for her daughter. We smile and turn to the little one. Shall we get this to watch the movie? Yes, she smiled. Daughter and I agreed that the surprise is not worth the heartbreak for a child. We had to be shown how to deal with the rending moment.

My daughter with Stacey when she was half way to four.

That ripped up box for me is the miracle I watch for every day of my life. I know we are being taken care of because these little conveniences, these little coincidences never cease. But I know they are never coincidences. I know an angel placed the box on that empty shelf. It’s my miracle, I can believe.

As we left the worldwide toy store, Dora and Sponge Bob faded. Eh with them, granddaughter had the train movie. I cannot wait for her to open the magic train.

Merry Christmas Eve to all whenever you read these stories.
