skincare, makeup, and boosting your immune system

    If only I could turn back the clock for my skin care (yes, too much sun)! But I can’t, and I will not do any cosmetic treatments or fillers. I will stick to make-up to cover what I can. I don’t wear much make-up, but I am learning from you and others. Thank you for this post and your honesty.

    This is such a helpful post. Thanks for your daily inspiration. Keep going strong (now we know why you do 🙂 ) and stay safe. Here’s to a better tomorrow!!

    I just have to wonder if you have an association with IT cosmetics that gives you some money for recommending them. I thought you mentioned different products last time you did a similar post.

      i work with quite a few brands: beauty, skincare, fashion and lifestyle. if it’s a sponsored post then it is clearly noted. it’s my job to try lots and lots of products as there are lots and lots of choices. but i have never worked directly with IT cosmetics although i have worked with Sephora inside JCPenney and they carry IT cosmetics. hope this helps.

    I love your pink shell with the oriental looking flowers. Did you get it recently?

    I love the blouse you have on in this post! Can you tell me where I can find it?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      the blouse is MaxMara a few years old.

      Excellent post to remind us we can be and look healthy for our age, at any age! I use IT Celebration Foundation since 2014 or so. My skin is complimented often. Am speeding towards 70, and half a lifetime ago learned that whatever age you are, start taking care of yourself, and if in 5 years you look somewhere near 5 years earlier, you’ll see your effort paid off. Then keep at it! Wise advice. It works! Thank you for your labor of love, Beth. You are appreciated~

    Excellent post. I am turning 71 and have even had nurses remark that I don’t look it. I was fortunate, that I have never been able to tolerate heat so usually stayed in the shade and even though I didn’t wear sunscreen, I have only three small very pale sun spots. That being said, I think you are spot on with not wanting to look younger, just wanting to look you best. The French spend their cash on skin care, makeup is secondary. Less is more at any age, frankly. Piling makeup on like a 20yr old ages us instantly. Soft well done eyebrows, subtly done eyeliner, a bright lip (not dark) and a wash of foundation. But our best assets…a smile, a strong mind and a good heart. You have them in spades.

    I have very wrinkled skin on my neck. I, too, spent a lot of time in the sun in my youth without sunscreen. I tried to get as brown as possible! Can you recommend anything to tighten up the neck skin?

    I’ll have to try your version of this drink–so good for us and this is definitely a good time to be helping our systems with all that’s immune-boosting. You look terrific, Beth.

    For those old sunspots, may I suggest IPL treatment? Intense Pulsating Light. It also removes burst blood vessels and other imperfections. I’m age 68 and receive compliments on my skin.
    Keep inspiring us!
