Having fun yet? Blog hoppin through the UBP today? Here are some great beauty tips that we all can use (especially us busy moms). Check them out and see if anything here will be something that you will incorporate into your daily routine.

The following is a list of products that have been tested by dermatologists and cosmetic chemists and are recommended that all women use on a regular basis to nourish and take care of our skin....

1) Gentle Cleanser: No matter if it's a bar, a liquid , or a gel, a cleanser your should suit your skin type and be mild enough to use twice a day.

2) Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30: A high SPF ensures that skins protected every day of the year."Ones with antioxidants, like green tea, are terrific because they offer a second line of defense against UV damage", says David E. Bank, M.D., director of the center for Dermatology , cosmetic and laser surgery, in Mount Kisco, New York.

3) Broad Spectrum Sunscreen: Pick up another sunscreen to use in place of your daily one on day's that you're outside for an extended time, like vacation or in the summer. "It's the single best anti-aging product on the planet," says Ranella Hirch, M.D., vice president of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery. Look for one with stable UVA shields, like Mexoryl and Helioplex, which can be used on the body too.

4) Lip Balm with SPF: You want the highest SPF you can find, since lips are ultra sensitive and susceptible to UV damage.

5) Hand Cream with SPF: It will help your hands from revealing your age. "Be sure to hydrate your nails well, too, to prevent splitting and ridges," says Jeanette Graff, an assistant professor of of dermatology at New York University
Medical Center, in New York City. Who is live in Nashville this week for the UBP?

6) Body Moisturizer: To fend off dry, itchy skin, use one with a rich mix of humectants (like glycerin) and occlusives (like petrolatum)twice a day.

Is your skin already thanking you? I know mine is BEGGING me to run right out and gobble this stuff up.
I don't know about you, but there are several of these products that I do NOT use regulary! I am going to try really hard to make sure that I do from now on though. Are these things that you keep on hand and use daily?
