I can honestly say that since I started using goPure, I’ve started to love my skin. Not “love” in the sense of “I love ice cream” or “I love sunsets.” I mean in the sense of valuing it. More than ever, I want to take care of it, but gently.  It’s a new experience for me, and I’m almost 58. Why did it take me so long? You see, I had really, really bad skin as a teen. Cystic acne, lots of trips to the dermatologist, lots of failed products....

Does anyone remember their first lighted make-up mirror? I do. I was fourteen, at an age when I was already starting to feel keen dissatisfaction with my body—or rather, with its various parts. I disliked my skin tone (freckles), shape of my nose (too round on the end), big feet (hadn’t grown into them yet). And then for my birthday, I got the gift I’d begged for: a Clairol “True to Light” mirror. It stood on its own, upright as a judge, passing sentence on every one of my facial...

Media off? Check. Messes out of sight? Check. CPAP plugged in…yep, friends, I have to check that one, too. The older I get, the more I need to pay attention to my nighttime routine. I have discussions with friends over things like the timing of a glass of wine, whether melatonin really works, the latest you can handle caffeine, and which essential oil I ought to try. I bought a good pillow for my neck, and I try not to drink water after six p.m. (if you don’t understand that...

Pop quiz, ladies: What do an ancient sailor and your skin have in common? Answer: Both of them need a daily dose of vitamin C! Yes, we have maritime history to thank for our lovely orange and white containers of goPure Vitamin C serum and moisturizer. Here’s the story, in brief: Even when they weren’t firing cannons or swashing swords, sailors faced a fierce enemy: a disease called scurvy. Scurvy wreaked havoc on their health. Their legs gave out, their arms bruised, their gums bled, they lost teeth, and you don’t...

I know, I know. We have to be very careful: the damage UV rays can cause is well-documented. Perhaps (though I hope not!) you’ve had a dermatological scare yourself. I’m fair-skinned, so I definitely need regular check-ups. So far, so good. But as a kid I had lots of agonizing sunburns. I was the freckled redhead who tried to copy my blonde, tawny friends by “laying out” all summer. There was, for example, the day my golden-haired cousin and I climbed up on my roof to be “closer to the...

It’s 2020 already. Wow, a brand new year. Are you wondering what’s ahead for you? Isn’t it funny that we talk about the unknown in terms of our faces? The expressions we use can even sound a little ominous: “What will I face?” “What are you facing?” “What kind of future will we face?” Those questions carry a sense that we should brace ourselves for scary or negative things that might come our way. Personally, I really, really hope that 2020 is better than 2019. I had a very rough...

Soon I’ll plug in my holiday lights for the last time. I’ll enjoy just a few more nights of their special glow. The bushes in my yard will be draped with twinkling colors through the end of the year. My tree will still be circled with strands of tiny starlight. I’ll light the green and red votives on the dining room table; I’ll smell the cinnamon and pine from candles that are aglow in their holiday glass. I’ll drink cocoa with friends and family around the fireplace for a few...

Do you ever feel nostalgic when using a goPure product? Today I did. I live in Southern California, where you get some awfully intense sun and heat on your face. So no doubt, I’ve needed the ongoing hydration that goPure serums and moisturizers provide. But this week, I’ve come home for the holidays, back to my parent’s Illinois farm. It’s been eight winters since I’ve visited. I had forgotten what “below freezing” feels like on the prairie, how cold-to-the-bone you get. Good thing I didn’t forget my goPure. This farm is surrounded by cornfields, which...

Which goPure products do you pack when you travel? I had a super important meeting in New York last week. My suitcase was already bulging with a key part of my presentation, and I simply could not fit in all my goPure products. So I chose my (current) favorites: Vitamin C Cleanser, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Vitamin C Moisturizer, Microdermabrasion Cream. Hmm...should I take the hydrating toner? Was it really that important? There was barely an inch to spare. But at the last minute, I shoved the slim bottle into a corner beneath my socks.  It was definitely not...

I’m always in a hurry. I’m not a world-shaker with a news-worthy lifestyle, accomplishing countless consequential deeds. No, in the grand scheme of things, I’m very ordinary. But it’s the way I’m wired: I tend to dash here, rush there, squeeze it in under the deadline. My 84-yr old mother still complains when I visit that I “bang around too much,” flinging open cupboards, whisking things in and out of drawers. Call it energy, call it multitasking, call it impulsiveness (I prefer brilliant creativity ha ha), slowing down has never...
