5-17-21 THIS WEEK: Ultimate Guide to Skincare

May 17, 2021, 3:27 pm by MSP


As a woman with aging skin, the topic of skincare is near and dear to my heart. It's also seen on my face daily when I gaze in the mirror. 

Since I'm over 50, I try to care for my skin the best I know how. I wash it with a gentle cleanser every morning and every night, and I wear a moisturizer with sunscreen daily. But, am I really doing all I should do? 

Taking care our skin is hugely important because better looking skin makes us look more youthful. Looking possibly years younger than our chronological age only happens when our skin is well cared for. So, if you're over 30, 40 or 50+ you must understand the basics of skincare


A good skincare routine...gets you the glowing skin you deserve!


Our skin is the largest organ of our body. Yet we often ignore it, or simply 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 much, 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 also 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”.


This week at MSP: 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 suffer from certain skin conditions including dehydrated skin, sensitive skin, mature skin, or blemished skin, rosacea.

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

Is a lack of closet and drawer space getting you down? Don't let lack of space create a cluttered mess in your closet! Instead, slowly cull through your clothing racks, closet shelving and drawers. Then, release the clutter-and organize what's left

This week's Style Mission: Store your accessories (and clothing)-creatively! 


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



Cool Spring Idea! A MSP SYSter shared this with me...so, I'm sharing it with YOU! 

Make a DIY vest out of a large scarf! Tie knots in the ends to create this vest.

It's the perfect swimsuit cover-up, or chic light-layer to any outfit, etc...

What SYSters Are Saying


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

This is your 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: Yes, ma'am...this advice will make you savvy shopper! Often you save money because you WON'T buy something for the sake of purchasing a "bargain". 


Dear Leslie,

I am a "C" body type, and have NEVER felt good about myself--always comparing my body shape to that of my small and petite sisters.  

But after receiving just ONE of your weekly messages and shopping suggestions, I was finally able to catch on to the advice you were giving about what styles of clothes would look best on my shape. I went into my closet and put together ONE outfit with clothes I already had. I NEVER would have put these items together before reading your website and the personal profile, but I did it and wore it the very next day.  

I received probably the very best compliment of my life, from my 13 year old son--who told me "Mom, you look kind of elegant today!"  I was THRILLED!  And all I was wearing was a nice pair of jeans, a button shirt that had princess seams and small shoulder pads in it, and some flat loafer type shoes--instead of the typical jeans, t-shirt, and tennis shoes.  What a difference!  And I still felt like I was wearing casual clothes that I could get down on the floor and play with my two year old in!  

Thank you SO MUCH--for helping me to finally love and appreciate my body shape, and showing me how to accent my positive points!

Love, Susan
