My grandson aka the little VIP of New York City, is three months old today. He had his own goPure blog post when he was born, so I think it’s fair to say that little Cecil is something of an influencer. I flew in from San Diego to spend a week in my role of Adoring Grandmother, and I am getting some great skin inspiration.  The skin of a baby is absolutely wonderful. You look at those cheeks and you sigh longingly. Ah, if only we could all go through...

Oily skin. I’ve never liked the sound of that. And I’ve definitely never liked the feel of it. But is “oil” always a bad thing on our skin? Does it really just mean “unpleasant grease”? I poked around online to try to understand. I’m no scientist, but here’s what I learned: Our skin is a jaw-dropping creation. You can find diagrams and cross sections online that show its layers and complexity. This organ we call skin isn’t one simple substance. It’s more like an orchestra than a soloist, with its...

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...

Are you a label reader? I am. I like to know what’s in the things I buy. For example, I’m a sucker for sugar (how’s that for a bad pun?), but I’ve learned to check the grams before I indulge. Add to that my attempt to lower my carb intake, increase my protein, get more iron to avoid anemia, and phew! the numbers are a bit overwhelming, and I worry some statistic eludes me. So when it comes to my skin care products, the last thing I want is another...

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’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...

When asked to write a blog post for goPure, I balked. Me, discuss the merits of a beauty product? From inside this skin?? I get intimidated just looking at a jar of cream. My first instinct was to run screaming in the opposite direction. There were 2 reasons I didn’t: (1) running while screaming can be dangerous, and (2) the young woman who invited me to write said, “Our company isn’t anti-aging— we are pro-aging.” With that line, I was hooked. You see, I am 57 years old. In my early...

Did you know your skin is the largest organ in your body? That’s right, your epidermis (the fancy term for skin) is the largest organ in the human body, and one of the largest indicators of overall health! From a biological standpoint, that’s one reason we care so much about having healthy, beautiful skin. Beautiful skin signals to other humans that we are healthy and strong!  Check out this video by Sophie Uliano to find out why you need Vitamin C in your life! As the cold weather moves in,...
