During these HOT Summer days don't forget to Shield Your Skin

During the sunny '70's, baby oil, reflective tanning mats, and native tans were on trend - while sunscreen was beauty's best-kept anti-aging secret.  Not until recently has it become widely known and accepted that sunscreen is the most effective step you can take to deter wrinkles, fine lines, and other visible signs of aging skin.

What's more, you must select your sunscreen carefully and use it properly to effectively shield your skin.  Most dermatologists - particularly those specializing in skin cancer - recommend a sunscreen with a chemical and physical barrier in order to ward off both UVA and UVB rays.  In addition , sunscreen must be reapplied every two to three hours, depending on your level of exposure and activity, which is why you cannot rely on an SPF built into your daily moisturizer.  Take care to cover the hands and neck, the first places to show signs of age, as well as the often neglected ears, feet, shoulders, and nose.

Rich in natural plant extracts and loaded with the essential oils, Votre Vu's Self Preservation Le Bloc de Soleil SPF 30 is blended with the same botanical base as our day creme for normal to dry skin, thus producing a moisturizing block that is unlike the typical dehydrating formulas used in common American sunscreens.  Hydrating shea butter, vegetable glycerin, and organic propylene glycol join with sunflower seed, calendula, avaocado and St. John's wort oils to heal, protect, fortify, and guard against inflammation.  Full coverage comes from a combination of titanium dioxide and eusolex 4360, both of which protect against UVA and UVB rays, with additional UVB filters provided by parsol and eusolex 232.  Be Protected!

A Mother is...

The glue that holds together the family! A Mother is SO many things... she wears many, many hats! I never really realized as a little girl growing up HOW much my Mom actually did.  Being a mother of six myself it is a non stop job as you Mother's know.  There is NO time to even be sick.  I've also come to realize that Mother = Maid.  I only wished that my Mother would have emphasized this part of motherhood so I would have been more prepared.  The best part of being a Mother is the unconditional LOVE that is shared... even though as your little person grows to be a teenager this is in question but, then to return when they realize once they reach adulthood how much you really do and have done for them!
[I really could go on & on... but, I tried to keep it short & sweet as I am lacking sleep right now and am not wanting to cry so that my eyes are puffy for Mother's Day]

A Mother...
When you're a child she walks before you,
To set an example.
When you're a teenager she walks behind you
To be there should you need her.
When you're an adult she walks beside you
So that as two friends you can enjoy life together...

Happy Mother's Day to all the AMAZING woman out there!

If I Knew As A Child...
If I knew as a child what I know now, Mom,
I probably wouldn't have made things
so hard for you.
I would have understood
that you were looking out for my best interest
even though it may not have seemed so at the time.
I would have known how difficult it is to let go,
to stand back and let someone you love
learn from their mistakes.
I would have realized
how fortunate I was to have a mother
who was always there for me,
even after an argument,
even after I'd said things
I shouldn't have.
While it's too late for a lot of things
it's not too late for me to tell you
that I appreciate how loving you are,
how giving you've always been
and that even though
I may not always be good at showing it,
I love you very much.
