Until recently, bar soap was always an afterthought to me. Sure, I’d go out of my way to find the most nourishing, aromatically enticing body scrubs and butters, but as far as I was concerned, bath soap was always something best bought in bulk from the supermarket. I had no use for the fru fru, seashell-shaped soap sets I received every Christmas (which were always re-gifted), the words “French milled” meant nothing to me and my idea of “guest soap” meant replacing the slivers that had fused together with a fresh bar.
Let’s face it, with today’s scientific modalities and plastic surgery techniques, it can be hard to distinguish a woman in her twenties from a woman in her forties. Although we tend to associate wrinkles and gray hair with the elderly, signs of aging can creep up and start to show themselves when we least expect it. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to achieve beauty at any age. So what’s the secret to looking great? Simple—good skin care.

Happy New Year! Even with craziness of the holidays, some of you still took the time to blog or vlog about Pür and we would like to thank:
The damage has been done (and yes, it was worth every savory second). However, now that the “season of splurge” is behind us, it’s time to get serious about shaping up. Read on for tips and tricks to get back that pre-holiday bod and then some.
Makeup Tips for Light Skin
Whether you have naturally porcelain skin, or just a case of seasonal paleness, here are a few tips to help keep fair skin looking luminous and lovely all winter long.
SKIN: A protective day cream is a must for those with light skin tones. Choose a moisturizer with a double-digit SPF, such as Pür Minerals Day Renewal Complex SPF 20, to help block harmful UV rays and preserve skin’s health. Exfoliating regularly, especially during the winter, will help fair skin maintain that supple, milky radiance.
FACE & CHEEKS: Since discolorations tend to reveal themselves more on lighter skin, try prepping skin
for makeup application with a colour correcting foundation primer. A green-tinted formula will help to even out the skin tone and offset any redness or imperfections, such as under eye circles or blemishes.
