I joined initially when I was 18 and lost 40 pounds.I was doing well on here until a less than stellar (to say the least) 18 month relationship pulled me away and led to my gaining all of the weight back.And then some. So here I am. Four years later, back again and ready to dive right back into this amazing community and get myself together. <BR> <BR> Oh and I love all things beauty! <BR> <BR> ...

I went back to work 20 lb... Sat, 21 Mar 2015 20:22:22 EST Facials If you like having facials, please share what type of facial is favorite and why. <BR> <BR> I had a new treatment recently called a MicroCurrent Facial. They used two handheld devices, that use electrical currents to workout the facial muscles. It lifts and tightens the skin. Suppose to do a serious of six treatments; which I plan to do. The results were really amazing. The device is able to be used on eyelids; which really lifted my lids. I was surprised. It was a deal that I found o... Tue, 3 Feb 2015 16:54:55 EST DermaRoller I have a dermaroller (off brand) and wondering if anyone else has used one. It did not come with directions. I'm finding conflicting information on how often to use the tool. Weekly, monthly, every six weeks. I can't find consistent information. <BR> <BR> I've used it one time so far. It doesn't hurt like expected and the redness went away by morning. I believe this tool will help strengthen collagen, but don't want to over use and damage my skin. <BR> <BR> Let me know if you have...

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:52:36 EST Ladies: This Newlywed Needs Your Help Hey Everyone, <BR> My name is Lana, and I am a 30-something newlywed that used to be pretty darn hot. I used to take care of my hair, skin, nails, make-up, and wore fashions that made me look attractive. When I met my husband I was at a great weight, and looked amazing. However, since getting married I threw myself into being the "perfect wife": I work full-time, manage the bills, attempt to clean the house (ok, and fail! lol), spend all of my free time with my husband, and make sure that not... Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:04:07 EST Newlywed/Former Hottie Hey! <BR> My name is Lana, and I am a 30-something newlywed. I used to have it totally together (hair, nails, clothes etc), but then I got married to a wonderful guy that I put above myself. I am ashamed, embarrassed, and feel disappointed in myself that I spend so much time taking care of my husband that I stopped thinking about taking care of myself. He is a great guy that does housework, and will do anything that I ask--- but, I have found myself focusing so much on being married (paying b... Thu, 21 Aug 2014 23:55:45 EST do you ever return make up you don't like? <BR> I almost always buy my make up at the local pharmacy, and never, ever returned anything just because it didn't suit me. If it were broken, of course, but otherwise the thought would never even cross my mind. How about you, have you returned make up? <BR> <BR> I returned for the first time a few months ago. I splurged and bought a lip stick at <BR> for something like $20. It had some sort of menthol in it and it sting my lips. They have an incredible return policy and cred... Sun, 10 Aug 2014 10:05:15 EST anti aging skin care lines Good morning - - I have been looking for a new line of products to use for facial cleansing, serum, eye treatment and moisturizers, usually use an spf during the day and heavier moisturizer at night. Any suggestions on ones to try that aren't too pricey? I know everyone is different but I like to hear other peoples reviews both good and bad. I am 53 with a few wrinkles starting, a couple dark spots but otherwise skin isn't too bad. Sat, 9 Aug 2014 09:50:07 EST Hair Dye Questions and color fading I dyed my hair Sunday night (you can see in my new picture) <BR> I never dyed my hair before, and I am usually a light to medium brown I would say. I wasn't sure if I would look right with red hair but wanted to try it. <BR> I don't know why but for some reason the top of my hair (roots to middle) is very red while the bottom is still kind of brown. I am not sure if I messed it up-I rubbed it in and got everything, left it in 30 minutes. <BR> Also, the box said radiant red, light Tue, 29 Jul 2014 19:31:53 EST Emoticon~How are you feeling? <em>100</em> amused?!

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 15:40:53 EST Hair lightening Sprays I was in Walmart yesterday and saw hair lightening spray-like you spray it on and either the sun or the hairdryer heat will activate it and slowly lighten your hair blonde. <BR> I have kind of brownish blonde hair. I was wondering if there is a spray like that which will make my hair more red? Not like the halloween red stuff, not like that but maybe a light red. I think that since I got my hair permed, if you look at it in the sunlight it has a red tint to it. <BR> I know I can buy a box of...

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:31:41 EST Tooth whitening Anyone done it? I keep seeing groupons for it and I would like to have it done. I think I would prefer in an office setting or at a dentist (with a good reputation) vs. the at home kits. But, im not sure which is better/easier/cheaper/etc Thu, 17 Apr 2014 09:57:56 EST Fashion question Ok, so I know this is a beauty team, but I need advice, <BR> <BR> I brought a really pretty peach skirt on the weekend, and I am having problems thinking what I can wear with it aside from a white 3/4 sleeve top.

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 04:12:13 EST Easy Styles for longer hair I have really long hair (down to my butt) and its naturally curly so it tangles easily. I don't want to cut it off, I just want to explore easy hair styles and ways I can wear it up during the day so it doesn't tangle. <BR> I like to: <BR> *Wear it in a braid <BR> *Put it in a pony tail then wrap the pony tail and tie that down. There are some long, curly strands so I let those hang out of the messy bun <BR> *Regular Pony tail <BR> <BR> What else is possible? Sun, 16 Mar 2014 14:45:05 EST Well hello there! Hey everyone!

But some of my clothes I got from yard sales or GoodWill. I don't notice it so much in my Fashion Bug clothing, but lots of other shirts I notice will be short. Its like when I stand they want to pull up. And I am not sure if it is because they are the wrong size, I am fat, or maybe someone accidently shrunk their shirts in the wash....

But it's far safer, in terms of maintenance, to stay connected and accountable. Although the best tool I know for losing AND maintaining has been tracking, having the support of others who are managing their weight is extremely important and valuable. <BR> <BR> That said, it's nice to meet you! <em>213</em> Fri, 29 Nov 2013 23:38:25 EST Challenging when the time changes Anyone else have a difficult time exercising when its dark before and after work!?

If you want to do light makeup and still want to look good (either you feel lazy or in rush or want to take a break from normal routine), what do you usually use?

Wed, 20 Jun 2012 09:04:44 EST post-weight loss battle scars I'm new to this team so I am sure that this has been discussed before, but I am really worried about what my body will look like after losing weight. What if my skin is so saggy that I feel more self-concious then when I was over weight (mind you I have a long way to go before that will be an issue) My weight has fluxuated drastically for years now and the battle "scars" are very evident, I mean really bad. Is there anything that works to help firm up skin as you lose weight and diminish the ... Mon, 18 Jun 2012 04:05:55 EST intro Hi, all! My name is Arlene and I have been a Spark member for a couple of years! Yet have never been "active" just tracking and reading articles. I am almost to my goal weight and need to learn to maintain and all of that! I can't wait to get re-started! Sun, 17 Jun 2012 07:38:55 EST Wrinkles above and below lips Anyone have any idea about how to get rid of lips above and below lips? <BR> (BTW, I don't smoke.) These have just been getting worse and worse as I age and I think they just look terrible! Skinn products is supposed to have something that helps. <BR> Any ideas?? Sat, 16 Jun 2012 08:19:00 EST You are what you eat... Has anyone here ever read the book "Feed your Skin, Starve your Wrinkles". It all about fruits, vegetable, and whole grains, it gives you list of their vitamins and minerals, and then explains how they benefit your skin. It's broken up into sections based on individual concerns, ageing, inflammation, moisturizing, etc. I thought it would be a great topic of discussion for this team.

I am currently in the process of making a new, healthier lifestyle for myself but I also want to change the way I present myself to others. I've always liked makeup, pretty clothes and pretty hair, but 1. I never really learned how to do anything with it, and 2. Having a poor body image made it seem rediculous to even try. Now that I want to start putting some effort into my appearance I don't even know where to start. I guess my first sta... Fri, 15 Jun 2012 04:45:06 EST Hello Hello everyone!

I know that deep inside, its my weight that is keeping me from being the teen I'm supposed to be. The weight keeps me from going to the mall every week with friends and trying on clothes. It keeps me from being asked out or even asking someone else out. It keeps me from friend clicks at school and it makes me hide myself under layers upon layers of clothes. I lost 15-20 pounds between my 8th grade year in middle school to the end of my 9th grade freshmen year at high school. I know what I ha...
