Love this Skincare Product!

olay_ss.jpgAdmittedly (and shamefully), I’ve fallen into the trap of using those over-the-top expensive skincare products. But, then, strictly accidentally, I needed a throw-away washcloth once while traveling and found these – the wonderful Oil of Olay wet cleansing cloths. Who woulda thought? Now I use the “age-defying anti-wrinkle” wet cleaning cloth product every day and every night, and I definitely keep them in my purse whenever I travel (they meet those liquid airplane requirements) to keep my skin hydrated and clean, while adding a great refreshing feeling on those long hauls. No kidding! You just use them and toss them out. I’m so personally sold on these, I’ve even given them as gifts to friends. Use them all the time! It may be my imagination, but I swear my skin looks better since I started. They’re not expensive, and you can pick them up at just about any drugstore . Be sure to buy the WET ones – not the dry ones!

Which is healthier — red or white? Hint: You’re wrong!

As someone who drinks white wine (I’ve been told that the Italian Pinot Grigios don’t cause reflux), I’m sick of my dinner friends telling me red is healthier.  So when I saw that the “evidence is mixed” on whether red “holds the year-round advantage when it comes to good health”* in The New York Times Health section, I, of course, had to post it.

Here’s the gist … (To read this article in its entirety, click here.)

“Many studies have shown that red wine has healthful compounds that are less abundant in white, including resveratrol, the heart-healthy substance derived from grape skins. Because white wine is produced with limited exposure to the skin, it contains lower levels of resveratrol, not to mention flavonoids, antioxidants, and the bitter-tasting tannins that are also linked to cardiovascular health …

… few epidemiological studies have compared white to red. And of those that have, some have demonstrated an advantage for red, while others have not. And still others have indicated that the drinkers of red and white are too different to compare. One study, found that red drinkers had a significantly lower risk of colon cancer than white drinkers, but the researchers later explained that among other things, the white drinkers were also more likely to smoke, which could have made the difference.

I raise my glass to you, my fellow wine drinkers …
