Before you get too excited, this is not about Brazilian waxing. It’s about multi-purposing products. If you’ve read my blog before, you know I have hair issues. As one who’s follicley challenged I’m always complaining. In fact, my friend Terry said she’s going to have “Finally she’s quit complaining about her hair” carved on my tombstone. So, why is it I require a minimum of five different hair products to see me through my morning ritual: shampoo (from a variety of formulas depending on my current crisis), conditioner, styling mousse, hair spray and Moroccan argan oil.

The other day as I lined up my five bottles of hope and salvation on my bathroom counter, I marvelled at what a product junkie I’ve become. Actually this has been a life-long battle but perhaps there’s hope in sight. After I massage a bit of Moroccan argan oil into my over-processed highlights, I use the residue on my fingertips to apply to my eye area. Can’t hurt. Then, one day I took it a step further and squeezed a bit more out of the bottle and massaged into my wrinkled sports-sock-like old neck. Hmmm. The results were rather delicious. Next thing I knew, I was applying it to my scaly old legs, feet and arms. And again, the results were quite impressive.

Oils have become the new go-to for beauty miracles (see my earlier blog on the issue) since BB and CC creams reached critical mass. Every company is now marketing a line of oil-based products for whatever your ailment. The true beauty of it, however, is that my Moroccan argan oil is a two-fer, three-fer or more-fer for a variety of beauty issues. I can now dispense with separate expensive eye creams, neck creams, body butters, foot creams and cuticle oils and wrap the job up with one go-to product—Moroccan argan oil. And if you’re into Brazilian waxing, I’ll bet it feels great there too. I’ll just take your word for that one.

For even more excellent advice on how I’m trying to make the world a better place through business, fashion, mind and body, order my new book, BOOMERBROADcast. It makes a great hostess, birthday or Christmas gift. Click on this link:

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis
