If you're reading this blog, I'm assuming you know enough about skin care to know that the first and foremost WORST thing for your skin is too much sun. Obviously, we all spend a certain amount of time in the sun, but if you're like me, you have sunscreen on every exposed area of your body.

Olay has just released a new anti-aging skin care line called Professional Pro-X Age Repair and the company claims it works as well as prescription strength Renova, a popular and effective anti-aging cream.

SkinCeuticals C E FerulicAmong skincare junkies, Skinceuticals CE Ferulic is among the best of the best. Recently, the Skinceuticals brand pulled most of their on-line distributors, so you have to go to a doctors office or an aestheticans office to purchase it. I assume the reasoning was to make it 'exclusive', because it does not require a prescription. Regardless, it is more difficult to get, but not at all less desirable. Why you ask, because it works. It smoothes wrinkles and improves overall texture and appearance of the skin.

Skincare pretty much goes out the window when women are pregnant. Not only do we have to worry about mask of pregnancy, broken capillaries and blood vessels in our face, and darkened freckles and brown spots, but we also have to put aside most of our effective skin care treatments. The more powerful and targeted products get, the more we need to be careful about what we have in our skin-care regimens during pregnancy, because they contain ingredients considered potentially harmful to a growing baby. What do we need to stay away from?
