It is that time of year in South Texas when we begin to live with high humidity and heat…it will be with us until at least October.  I have discovered over the years some great beauty products for Women over 50 which help us navigate our way through the heat!

Most early mornings I begin my day at the gym and when I get home I am hot and sweaty! This AVEENO POSITIVELY NOURISHING AND COMFORTING CREAM is the most refreshing thing I do before I dress for work…it is soothing and cooling.  I have tried several of the Aveeno lotions and I find this one to be the most refreshing.

Now, this one is perfect for bedtime.  At the end of a long, hot day…try a shower and AVEENO POSITIVELY NOURISHING AND CALMING LOTION with lavender and chamomile to be ready to relax and SLEEP!  The link is savings on a pack of four…which gets you ready well into summer.

But, before bed, use AMOPE PEDI PERFECT MOISTURIZER on your tired, hot feet!  I was introduced to this one last year and it is great for soothing feet and keeping heels soft and smooth.

I just began to use the COLOR SCIENCE MINERAL CORRECTOR PALETTE, because we all know that humidity is hard on the makeup!  I am impressed with how they designed this palette to deal with our complexion concerns.  For example, 

Shades 1 & 2: For redness, blemishes and broken capillaries
Shades 3 & 4  (blue and purple tones):  For dark spots, under eye circles, 
Shade 5 (yellow and green tones):  Dark spots and under eye circles

These can be blended or used separately.  It is water resistant and SPF 20.

I also just began to use the Somme Institute Products which were sent to me from Soft Surroundings.  I am impressed and immediately began to use the Double protection skin moisturizer on my face.  After I exfoliate, I have also used the serum for a couple of weeks and am very impressed with the reduction of fine line around my mouth and chin.  Here is what the Somme website says about the company:

“Skin care companies should deliver the claims they promise.”
In 1994, an eminent team was assembled, including independent leading research and practicing dermatologists throughout the United States. After years of disappointment from existing products that did not perform to expectation, Somme Institute® was created with the intention of making perfect skin an attainable goal.

Our Clinical Trials

In 1996, clinical trials began testing ingredients to see what delivered results to the skin and what didn’t. Through the use of Ultra Violet (UV) photography, participants’ skin surface and subsurface conditions became visible. These advanced photographs enabled researchers to witness and analyze damage beneath the skin’s surface-damage that would later appear in the form of dryness, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

After over 10 years of testing, development and “tracking” more than 5,000 participants, Somme Institute® discovered and developed a Patented technology called Molecular Dispersion Technology 5 (MDT5™).


MDT5™ allows full vitamin absorption by the skin to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Repair sun damage
  • Even out discoloration and brown spots
  • Treat moderate to severe acne as well as rosacea
  • Dramatically improve the skin’s tone, texture and clarity

I know from experience Soft Surroundings is very careful with the beauty products they choose to represent and this one appears to be high quality as the other lines are.  Check them out here for sun protection this year:

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

Hopefully, these will help some of you…as they do me…to feel a little more refreshed in the warm weather, so we can….

Keep Smiling
