Skin Care Tips for Fall – TriDerma Skincare {Giveaway}

The leaves are changing colors and Fall is in full swing. I love the Fall season. It is a little cooler and there are so many fun things to do! Our family loves to go to the pumpkin patch, hay rides and haunted houses. Unfortunately, this also means drier air and thus drier skin. At this time of the year (and through the Winter) it is important to insure that your skin is taken care of.

I was recently introduced to TriDerma skincare. This skincare line is all natural and botanical based products made with organic genuine virgin aloe vera. I just tried three of their amazing products and have incorporated them into my Fall skincare routine. Here are my best tips for Fall Skincare:

  • Don’t use soap. Soap is extra drying and will dry out your skin even more!
  • Exfoliate. Scrub off dry skin and increase your skin’s softness and brightness. Try TriDerma’s Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Scrub. It also helps with acne, wrinkles and everyday skin irritations.
  • triderma-spot-and-wrinkle-erasing-scrub2

  • Hydrate. A light-weight moisturizer is the best and TriDerma’s Light Sensitive Skin Healing Moisturizer does the trick! This moisturizer will leave your skin feeling silky soft throughout the day and does not feel heavy on the skin.
  • Eye Care. Reduce swelling and dryness by using Everyday Bruise Relief. It also can be used as an under-eye brightener.
  • Protect Your Lips. Make sure you keep your lips moist by using a non-petroleum based lip balms.
  • Protect Hands and Feet. Find a good cream to keep hands and feet protected and moisturized.
  • Reduce Pores, Spots and Wrinkles. TriDerma has two great products that will help reduce pores, spots and wrinkles this Fall. The Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum is the perfect primer that will hide imperfections and improve overall skin texture, skin and complexion. The Spot & Wrinkle Reducing Cream is a Medical strength anti-aging cream that help erase the look of spots, while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • triderma-spot-and-wrinkle-erasing-cream

  • Use a Sunscreen. You can still get sunburned in the Fall, so remember to use a good sunscreen. If you do get burned, use TriDerma’s Extra Pure Healing Gel which is great for minor burns and sunburn. It also provides soothing, softening, hydrating and natural anti-inflammatory relief for all kinds of skin irritations.

Bathroom Basket: Perfect for Making Incontinence Products Discreet #MembersMarkCares

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MembersMarkCares #CollectiveBias

If you know anyone who suffers from incontinence, you probably realize that they are embarrassed by the problem. Nobody wants to be thought of as the person who pees their pants! My daughter, who is a CNA at a nursing home, deals with a number of women who have incontinence. She is very aware that they are unhappy with the situation, and she try to helps them feel as comfortable as possible. She lets them know that she cares about them and is not there to judge them.

Recently, someone who I care about, realized that she needed to purchase adult underwear to help with her incontinence problem. This was not a comfortable topic for her since I am the one who does all of her shopping for her. She was unaware of what products were available and what product would be the best choice for her. What she and I didn’t know is that there are different types of adult incontinence products: liners, belted shields, protective underwear, and disposable briefs.

  • Liners, pads and guards are inserts that are secured to your own undergarments with a protective strip. They offer less bulk, but are best for light incontinence.
  • Belted shields are liners or pads combined with a belt or strap that can be worn without underwear and are less bulky than protective underwear.
  • Protective underwear are disposable pull-ups. There are different degrees of absorbency and most offer wicking and odor control.
  • Disposable briefs are known as adult diapers and are highly absorbent with side fasteners making easy for caretakers to help the person.
  • My friend decided that protective underwear would be the best option for her since she is able to change the underwear herself without assistance and they feel more like underwear than other products. I suggested that she try Member’s Mark Protective Underwear for Women since Member’s Mark products from Sam’s Club always get great reviews!

    I was easily able to locate the appropriate product at Sam’s Club (btw, I love my Sam’s Club Membership!).

    The products comes with 80 Large adult underwear in one package for $29.98. This is a great deal compared to grocery store and drug store prices.

    members-mark-underwear

    Another concern was that she would need to keep the product in the bathroom in a place easily accessible. Since the bathroom door in her small apartment opens right up into the living space, she felt uncomfortable placing the product right where she needed it. I came up with a great idea! I found her a cute basket. I bought some fabric and was able to attach the fabric using just a glue gun. I added a drawstring to make a discreet holding spot for the underwear. Now she can store the product, right where she needs it, without it being in full sight of visitors. She was extremely happy with this solution.

    Because my friend is on a tight budget, we are so happy that Sam’s Club makes finding a solution for incontinence so affordable! Sam’s Club is definitely my one-stop shop for all my caregiving needs.

Book Review: Deadly Ties by Maggie Thom

She went to jail for the right reason but the wrong murder.

With her mom in a coma, Kyara is determined to discover who is behind the brutal attack. Does her grandmother’s recent release from jail have anything to do with it? The police believe that some meth addicted youth are responsible but what Kyara uncovers is shocking. Is anyone telling the truth? Even Ryan who she thought might be able to help her is harnessing his own dark secret. Is he truly trying to help her or does he have his own agenda?

The golf course wasn’t built because the sport was gaining in popularity but to hide a deadly secret. Those responsible are determined to keep it buried and those who know anything are being silenced. Kyara finds herself trying to catch an old woman, stay ahead of those trying to kill her and unveil the truth. But can she do it before a town pays the ultimate price?

My Review

I love mysteries and this one fit the bill. I didn’t want to put it down. The characters were interesting, the plot had a few twist and the ending was perfect. I enjoyed that there was an environmental twist and coverup. The main character, Kyara, really doesn’t want to be back in her home town, but returns because someone attacked her mom. She realizes that there is something fishy in the town and she works to uncover the dark secret. This books is well worth the read!

“The plot was intricate and it made me want to finish it quickly so I could discover all the mysteries. There was lots of action, a love story and a good depiction of strong women which I really liked. “ – C H-Jackson

pinners_illbethere-states-2-1-1-1-1

This is the third year that I will be attending the Pinners Conference & Expo in Salt Lake City on November 4th and 5th! This is definitely one of my favorite conferences to attend. I am hoping that both of my daughters will be able to attend with me this year as well.

Two great events in one! Not only is it a conference featuring 100 Pinterest-based class, but there are almost 200 top businesses displaying their products!

I have attended several of the classes in the past and have learned so much.

This year, you can find the Pinners Conference & Expo not only in Salt Lake City, but Dallas, Texas, Phoenix, Arizona and Atlanta, Georgia. The admission is very reasonable ($7) and the you can purchase admission to the classes as well. Some classes cost a little extra for the kits, but it is definitely worth it because you get to take home a cool project.
