8-3-20 THIS WEEK: Skincare Through the Decades

August 3, 2020, 3:31 pm by MSP


As a woman with aging skin, the topic of skincare is near and dear to my heart. Since I'm nearly 60 (wow, did I just write that?!) I'm doing my best to care for my skin. I wash it with a gentle cleanser every morning and each night, plus I wear a moisturizer daily that has sunscreen in it. But, am I really doing everything I should? Is there more to skincare?

With a plethora of products on store selves, at makeup counters and online, there are so many options; just how are we to know the products we need? Or for that matter, the products we don't need?

Good skin makes us look more youthful. That means caring for our skin is hugely important. Looking possibly years younger than our chronological age only happens with good skincare.


If you're 30, 40 or 50+ you must know the basics of skincare based on age (and specific skin type)


Start a good skincare routine today...get you the glowing skin you deserve!


Skin is the largest organ of our body. Yet we often ignore it or take advantage of it. Our skin regulates our body’s temperature, protects us from foreign invaders (germs, bacteria, dirt, etc.) it also helps us process Vitamin D from the sun and does so much more. According to Women’s Health magazine there is good news! “You grow nearly 1,000 new layers of skin throughout your lifetime, so you've got plenty of chances to make sure it's smooth and glowing.” 


If your skin is not looking its best, you can do something about it. You can do something about your aging skin because according to Leslie Baumann (dermatologist and director for University of Miami Cosmetic Center in Florida) “About 80 percent of aging is caused by environmental factors--things you have control over”.



Find out skincare specifics for dry skin, oily skin and for combination/normal skin-what to use and what to avoid. Once you have determined your skin type you may also find you suffer from certain skin conditions including dehydrated skin, sensitive skin, mature skin, or blemished skin.


The complete guide to skincare will be yours in this week's article from MSP!

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

Lack of space getting you down? Don't let lack of space create a cluttered mess in your bedroom or closet! Instead, slowly cull through your clothing racks, closet shelving and drawers (one at a time) and release the clutter--then organize what's left

Here are some fab suggestions of how you can store your accessories.

What SYSters Are Saying

"Thanks, MSP...Best Advice Ever!"

This is the Best Advice: I wish I had heard of this years ago! "If an item is something you would purchase at full price, if it is something you need and will use, then it 's a bargain at a discounted price because it holds VALUE to you!" Joanne M.

MSP HERE: So true. This advice will make you savvy with every purchase you make! Often you will save money because you WON'T buy something for the sake of a "deal". 



I’m taking care of myself better than I have for many, many years and I owe it to you and your program that teaches me.

One thing I am doing besides dressing in nicer clothes, is wearing makeup. I never learned the girly stuff many women do. My mother never wore makeup so I guess I never thought it mattered much.

I am happy to say I wear makeup now (not much though). It makes me feel feminine. I am wearing nail polish too. I usually wear a light pink shade that I really really love (makes me feel girly).

My problem is the nail polish bottle gets hard after opening it. Do you have ideas how to fix this? I still have lots of polish in the bottle and it is hard to open now.

Thanks for being there for women like me!


MSP HERE: Dear Kimberly,

I’m always happy to hear when one of my SYSters is feeling good about herself-that's what the Personal Profile SYStem is all about.

My suggestion for hard to open nail polish bottle: Use Vaseline (petroleum jelly) around the lip of the bottle BEFORE you use it.

This will prevent the bottle from becoming hard to open. Since you've already have dried on nail polish on the lip of the bottle, wipe it with a tissue soaked in nail polish remover. This will remove the hardened polish. Now apply the petroleum jelly to prevent this problem from happening again. 

Love, Leslie MSP
