Lipsticks with Sunscreen

Got a vacation in the sun coming?  Or maybe you live in the Sunbelt.  Use lipstick with a sunscreen to protect your lips.

Try the Bobbi Brown Lipshine SPF 15. Why I like it?

It walks that perfect line between matte and gloss and comes in a range of classic colors from nude pink to brown to red. Best of all, it comes in a small tube that can fit in any small purse or the pocket of your jeans without showing. I’ve even carried this lipstick (many times – don’t ask), tucked in the bottom edge of my bra with no problem because I don’t like carrying a purse.

Another good one?  Try Jane Iredale Lip Drink SPF 15 (I put this in the Air Travel Booster Pack, so scroll down to see it).

See Dr. Irwin’s new article on Moles, Lumps, and Bumps: what are the different moles and growths we get on our faces, and what are our treatment options?

Did we say Botox for Breakfast?  Whoops!  We have scrambled eggs on our face.  Christine, who reviewed in her great blog, called it Botox for Christmas, not Breakfast.  Sorry, Christine!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
