Pink or Red this Spring?

Pink or Red?
Your Lipstick choice this spring says a lot about you! Pink you are super feminine and flirty. Red says you are ready to get out and have some fun!
Which are you? Positively Pink or Ready! Set! Go! Red!
Personally I have spent most of my life not wearing Lipstick, tried a few ones over the years,  but nothing that I felt comfortable in wearing.  (Well I did find one a few years back,  but of course the entire product was discontinued).     I love wearing the Jordan Essentials Lipstick,  of course I'm more the  "Remarkable Red" then "Ready! Set! Go! Red!".
David,  usually referred to as "hubby" has made comment that my lips are so much softer.   So why not look good and have softer lips at the same time!
No mineral oil or harmful chemicals.  Women lick their lips all day long, so it's important to us that we provide a "safe" product.  We know what is in our Lipstick,  do you!
Jordan Essential lipsticks are available in the following shades:

Mauvelous Pink
Remarkable Red
Positively Pink
Outstanding Orange
Ready! Set! Go! Red!

$18.00 each

Wedding Season is Upon Us.

Weddings and yes more Weddings . .

My husband and I will be celebrating the big 25 years in a few months.  But in talking with so many of my customers and business associates  it's amazing just how many have weddings coming up in the near future.

Some their own,  some their children or grandchildren.   Everyone seems to have the same question. . . what to get the bridal party.   Most can easily come up with the gifts for the Bridesmaids and with some thinking the Groomsmen can be taken care of.  

But what do you get the little flower girls. . . you don't really want to get them the same thing as the "Big Girls"  but you certainly want them to feel like they are "Big Girls".
Our Pamper Chicks Gift Collection is perfect for them. 

This Gift Set comes in a Tote,  Pearberry pink and oh so fun to have on the go.  A popular gift set for girls, tweens and chicks who want to have fun at any age!    Included are Lotion Bar, Pamper Chick Lip Gloss, Travel Size Spritzer and Shower Gel.   Just $22.00 plus shipping and tax.

True Inner Beauty

By Nancy Bogart  Founder/CEO

When polled in an independent study, 62% of women said they are more afraid of looking old than growing old. Why not have it all! Grow old, look great and feel great about it! Confi-dence is beautiful. Cleopatra was known for her beauty. Did you know she was not a stop and drop your jaw beauty? She was renowned for her inner beauty and health. She had 4 children, ran the palace and made no excuses. She had the first Dead Sea mines and was known to love botanical beauty treatments.

"For her beauty, as we are told, was in itself not altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her; but converse with her had an irresistible charm, and her presence, combined with the persuasiveness of her discourse and the character which was somehow diffused about her behavior towards others, had something stimulating about it. There was sweetness also in the tones of her voice; and her tongue, like an instrument of many strings, she could readily turn to whatever lan-guage she pleased..." Plutarch, Life of Antony (XXVII)

As we all grow older, our inner beauty is our strength. We do not have to look like magazine models, nor do we have to make it to the top of the corporate ladder, forgetting our children in the process. Jordan Essentials is a great place to become a woman of inner beauty. We value the person you are and want to empower you to be all you want to be. You can work at a cosmetic counter for an hourly wage, or you can join the journey with Jordan Essentials and become the strong, confident woman you want to be.

I believe you are all beautiful, and I am thrilled and eager to continue on this journey with you!

Prevent and Soothe Chapped Winter Hands

Dry, cracked hands are a common cold weather complaint. Here's how to get a grip on the problem.

By Shelley Levitt  WebMD

WebMD FeatureReviewed by Laura J. Martin, MDWinter is brutal on our hands. Smooth, supple, and soft in September, hands can turn red, chapped, and rough by February.

The main culprit? Lack of moisture.

Having a healthy outlook on life makes you feel better on the inside, and with a little help, those positive changes can also be reflected on the outside. When men and women hit their 40s and 50s, their skin changes. The outer later of skin stops turning over skin cells as quickly and uniformly as it did when they were younger, which leaves skin looking dry, blotchy, and dull. That process, combined with the cumulative effects of decades of sun exposure, makes wrinkles and skin cancer prime...

During the winter months, the humidity in the outside air plunges. Inside, things are even more arid, with indoor heating creating desert-like conditions in our home and office. What's more, follow the advice of health care experts to wash your hands frequently to avoid catching a cold or the flu and you'll sap whatever natural oils are left in your skin.

The effect -- hands so dehydrated they may crack, peel, bleed, and become painful -- can be alarming.

"People will have fissures in their hands and they'll come to see me saying they can't figure out what's happening," says New York City dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman's Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin. "It's just extremely dry skin."

The good news, Marmur says, "is once you recognize that, you're halfway on your way to fixing the problem."

Here's what you need to know to help your hands weather winter.

Hereditary Plays a Role

Just how well our hands can withstand winter's harsh conditions has a lot to do with the strength of our skin barrier, says Charles Crutchfield III, MD, a dermatology professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School. A combination of proteins, lipids, and oils, the skin barrier is what protects our skin from assault, and just how good a job it does is largely genetically determined.

If you have a weak barrier, you're more prone to symptoms of sensitive skin, like itching, inflammation, and eczema. You're also more likely to experience excessively dry hands in winter.

The bottom line: If you suffered from chapped hands last year, you can count on that happening again this season and every winter.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

To treat parched, scaly hands, you need to replace the moisture that your thirsty skin is missing. Drinking water, experts point out, won't do that.

"It's the moisturizer applied directly to the skin that will keep water from evaporating and give your skin a healthy, dewy appearance," says dermatologist Amy Wechsler, MD, author of The Mind-Beauty Connection: 9 Days to Reverse Stress, Aging and Reveal More Youthful, Beautiful Skin.

For effective treatment, apply moisturizer early and often. "The best prevention is to begin using a moisturizer before your hands show signs of dryness," Marmur says.

Putting moisturizer on just once a day is inadequate. "That's probably enough protection for about five minutes," Marmur says.

With more frequent application, however, the effects of a moisturizer last longer. Five or six applications a day, Marmur says, will provide round-the-clock protection.

To reach that goal, Marmur suggests practicing what she calls "good product placement." Along with keeping a big jar or tube of your favorite over-the-counter moisturizer in your bathroom, stow smaller sizes in your purse, gym bag and on your desk so application becomes a habit.

And remember to rub the hand cream or lotion over your cuticles and nails. "Nails can become dry, just like the skin of the hands," Crutchfield says.
