Skin Saving Travel Tips

Let me ask you a quick question:
How many hours do you spend in a car, bus, train, or airplane every month?
It’s tough sometimes… especially summer when we are traveling more. We take many trips in the summer, but right now, we have driven from south Florida to Vermont. Long trip!
If you’re anything like me, you’ve noticed that whenever you spend too long in a car, train, or airplane – even just an hour or two – you don’t look nearly as fresh and bright as you did at the beginning of the trip…
There are a few reasons for this:
  • Dry, recirculated air takes moisture out of skin
  • Stress causes pronounced sagging
  • Dehydration causes flaking and creasing
  • Reduced circulation causes dullness and blotchiness
  • Fluid retention causes eye bags and puffiness
All these factors combined can make skin look YEARS older… fast.
So whether you’re a big traveler who spends a lot of time on airplanes, in cars, or even someone who just gets stuck in traffic once in awhile – I want to share some tips for how to revive your skin post-travel.

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party. I am always so excited to have you join the party. Check out our features and then link up your posts. Hope you have a great week!


Yummy No Cook Side Dish

When the weather warms up, the last thing I want to do is heat up the kitchen. We are camping this Father's Day weekend and a number of friends are getting together for dinner. We all bring something and have great fellowship and fun.

A friend of mine brought over a number of bananas from his tree. They were still green. I thought I would eat some but then they all started to ripe. Time to make some banana bread.

Ducks Find New Pond - My Driveway

If you follow me you know that we had major rain and flooding here in Davie, Florida last week. I showed you some pictures of my back yard here. The rain has stopped, the sun is shining and the water is going down slowly. 

I took some pictures of these ducks when my driveway was flooded. They thought my driveway was their pond as they swam around from my driveway onto the street.

I took the dogs on a golf cart ride yesterday and the birds were out in full force up at the other end of our street getting all of the bugs.

Some were sitting up on the fence.

My neighbor put up this sign. (The sign is at the edge of his yard) He is so funny. You have to have some humor in all of this. Can you believe that this end of the street had more water than we did? (This is after 5 days since the storm)

Eclectic Red Barn: No Wake sign in yard

Some kids actually were in a kayaks on the street and the couple at the end raise koi fish and some of them got out and people had nets try to catch them.

This Great Egret was walking around my yard. I still have a lot of water.

He took off as I tried to get closer. You can see that the water is going down from my barn.

Each day I watch to see how much the water will go down today and hope it doesn't rain. My husband comes home on Sunday. I can't wait.  At least I don't have to cut grass while my husband is away. lol!
