Here at the Emerald Scarab we are HUGE Joan Rivers fans, and it hit us all hard when we heard of her passing today. We wanted to do a post in her honor, and today we had an article slated to address fine lines and wrinkles. Per usual the comedy legend had perfect timing, and we rewrote our article to honor and include her.
4 essential tips for healthy skin
Feed your skin:
We all know that Joan was a fan of plastic surgery, but if you’re looking for something more subtle and holistic Hum Nutrition has a great supplement aptly named Smooth Operator. We’re fans because it helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles by supplying your body with the extra collagen that it needs to keep your skin looking and feeling taught and fresh.
Protect your skin:
Joan was a fan of wide brimmed hats, and she was on the right track! The Melanin Sunscreen from Mariana Chichet which comes in both Oil Free, or Dry Skin formulas is hard to beat when it comes to sun protection. This husband and wife team creates everything in their own lab, and have A-List celebrity clients such as Nichole Kidman, Rachel McAdams, and Matthew McConaughey to boot!
Moisturize your skin:
Joan was a huge fan of makeup and we imagine that moisturizer was part of her regular routine. Valerie Goulding of Vital Living Ayurveda supplies our favorite moisturize of all time… Abhyanga Oil! You can add it to your bath, use it in the same fashion as you would lotion, and it’s mild enough to put on your face without causing blockages. And yes, she ships!
Hydrate your skin:
We don’t know what Joan’s drinking habits were, but we imagine her with a cocktail (and a fabulous boa) rather than a bottle of water! We’ve all heard it a million times, but that’s because it’s the truth. Drinking water is good for our bodies in myriad of ways, and eight glasses a day will help to keep your skin happy, healthy, hydrated, and looking it’s best. If you’re having issues with redness, dermatologist Andrea Cambio recommends subbing your morning coffee for iced green tea. Who knew?!
Now that you’ve done your homework on how to keep your skin happy and healthy, you can enjoy our tribute to some of Joan’s style and accomplishments through the years. We hope you enjoy looking back over a bit of of history lived full throttle by the groundbreaking pioneer herself, the comedic genius Joan Rivers.
