Is your skin care making you fat? Hormone disruptors hide in a lot of beauty products, which isn't pretty at all. 

Eating and exercise are obvious ways to tackle the belly fat that hormone imbalance can cause. Sleep and stress are understandable. Are you sure about your skincare routine and those products you're putting on your skin by 9am most mornings? Abby Jean from Annmarie Skincare is my guest in this episode. 

Whether you're a minimalist or you love your girly products you're going to want to listen to the pearls Abby shared inside this episode. From fine lines to breakouts, a #youstillgotitgirl can have a number of needs and we talk about them all! 

Abby is a Licensed Esthetician, as well as Wholesale Account Manager for Annmarie Skin Care. Spoiler alert, Annmarie Skin care generously give a full size trio of products to our Flipping 50TV participants and I do get a small commission on products you buy with my link. I only share products I use and love with you though and I just want to be transparent about it. 

For women that often involves many products during the course of one day - already a dozen in the hour getting ready in the morning!

On average a woman uses 12-14 skin care products per day and up to 500 chemicals. Even if an ingredient is listed last on the label if you’re consuming it frequently it adds up to a negative cumulative effect on your body and health. 

  • Parabens
  • Fragrance
  • Phthalates
  • Oxybenzone

How to Improve Your Skin Care

Start by flipping your most often used items or those that have the most coverage:

  • lotion
  • fragrance
  • cleanser
  • make up

Skin care questions we answer in this episode:

What are some harmful ingredients found in personal care products that can affect our hormones?

How do you care for skin that is suddenly both blemish-prone again and is experiencing signs of aging?

Oils are feared by many people with blemish-prone skin – and I have to admit I was one of them - why does Annmarie Skin Care have a primary focus on using oils for moisturizing the skin?

I want all our listeners to get outdoors as much as possible, to bike, walk, swim… and all those elements- can wreak havoc!

How do you calm the look of temporary redness or blotchiness that is caused by harsh elements, exercise, or even chlorine exposure? 

The answer to this question is:

Cold compresses – a drop or two of calming essential oils (chamomile, geranium, lavender). Heads up Flipping 50, listener, this is a really common question I'm asked. So if it's you, too, you're not alone!

Is there anything special you suggest for sun protection? Are there things to be cautious of or to seek?

Abby answers: look for zinc oxide as an ingredient, and reapply hourly if you’re in the sun, water, or sweating.

Because there are so many different skin needs Annmarie Skin Care offers different products to choose from: 

  • Anti-aging facial oil (Debra's favorite)
  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Sensitive (I thought I would need this: they're all pretty gentle!)
