What do you really need in an anti-aging cream?

Are you as confused as I am about the thousands of anti-aging beauty creams out there and their endless lists of scientific age-defying ingredients? It’s enough to make a gal throw her hands up in the air and say, “Forget it all.. just pass me a little vaseline please.”

I finally go that answer at the MORE magazine Re-invention convention where I heard dermatologist to the stars, and very pretty lady, Dr. Debra Jaliman M.D. spill the beans.  She gave me the simple, uncomplicated list of ingredients to make us look Fabulous after 40.

6 Beauties Over 40

What makes a woman beautiful at 40, 50 and beyond, or at any age? To me it’s woman with style and grace, a woman who radiates confidence. Here are a few of my favorites. See if you agree. Dian Lane, Dihann Carol, Susan Sarandon One of my all time favorites is Diane Lane. She gets better with age. She always looks so natural and peaceful. Simply gorgeous! Diahann Carroll - She’s classy and glamorous. Loved her in the TV show “Julia” in the 60′s and on “Dynasty” in the 80′s. By the way, I just read Diahann Carroll’s book called The Legs Are the Last to Go: Aging, Acting, Marrying, and Other Things I Learned the Hard Way, and it’s terrific. She’s a true fashionista. She loves clothes and all the drama that goes with dressing up. Susan Sarandon is intelligent and seductive. She still oozes that sexy magnetism and is proof you can be a hot mama at any age.
