Some of what we perceive as skin aging is due to day-to-day sun exposure…not sun exposure on the beach or during a summer jog in the park when we have the common sense to wear sunscreen. No, it's day-to-day sun exposure at times when we least suspect it, such as when we're walking to the parking lot on an overcast winter day, dropping off the dry cleaning on an early spring morning, or driving our cars on a not-so-bright winter day. Day-to-day sun exposure happens when we least expect it, yet it plays a role in skin aging. It leaves us with no other choice but to wear sun block, like on... Continue Reading

Las Vegas is laying odds on which films and actors will win; style experts are discussing who will be wearing what; restaurants are featuring movie-themed menus with dishes based on the best picture nominees, and lots of people are rushing to theaters to see the contenders on the big screen before it’s too late.

This month I spent two weeks in China (you can read about it in last week's blog). The air there was so dry! In fact, "so dry" is a gross understatement! By the second day, I was worried there were bedbugs in the hotel because I was itching so much. I know that sounds gross, but I was starting to freak out. Turns out, it wasn't pests - it was the extremely arid air. Suddenly, I understood why so many people at work in Beijing had humidifiers on their desks. Fortunately, I had packed my WEN oils.
