winter skincare

Just in case you thought I had dropped off the planet...I give you this unedited video of me. The video contains a few winter skincare tips and a few errors.  It really was done in good fun.  I hope you learn something and get a good laugh.

Also, thank you to everyone for their warm holiday wishes.


  1. I am glad to say that we have avocadoes on the menu for this evening along with snow to get out and ski and rev up our circulation!
    Nice video! ENjoy UtaH!

  2. Very cute! You have a nice voice. Thanks for the tips.

  3. Janet - Brava! You are a natural in front of the camera. Thanks very much for the tips. I'm going to make some guacamole this weekend. That will be a good way to get more avocado in my diet and if that doesn't work, I'll slather it on my face for a quick mask. Have fun in Utah!

  4. You have a lovely soft voice Janet. I laughed at the blooper.
    Have fun on the slopes!

  5. Thanks for the tips! You are so cute! Have a great trip.

  6. Hi Janet,
    Great post- you're so cutting edge with the video! I was also very cool to get a more realistic feeling for you- you speak softer than I expected. I'm also impressed that you continue to blog from a mountain top.


  7. Janet,
    the more you talk, the cuter you are!!!

    Now I feel like I know you a million times better ~ you're adorable.

  8. Thanks for the tips... You did great - a real natural. Happy New Year!

  9. hey cutie, so this is where you've been hiding out...

    Loved the video and hearing you speak. I sound like Minnie Mouse so you won't be getting anything from me. Except a miss you and have fun.

    This is such a cute idea!! I love it.
    I am totally down with the avocado and olive oil- I can happily do both those things, and I will, as I just arrived in Sun Valley today and already my face feels like it is going to fall off.
    Have a wonderful time with your husband in Utah (land of the smallest martinis EVER)

    and p.s. am very impressed by the technology side of it too getting a video on the blog.

  23. Janet!!!!!!!! I love it that I have seen you in Motion and HEARD your lovely voice! Exciting. It's almost a year since we found each other's blogs and started emailing and as soon as I am able to I am definitely actioning a trip to the USA to meet you. You look so young. Like seriously about 32. My dreadful Christmas has taken a bit of an upturn and things are a bit cheerier all round for which I am Grateful. It is hot and humid here and it rains torrentially non stop. Do not get me started on what this has done to my hair (shudder) xx

  24. Hi Janet,

  30. love it! i went to school for esthetics and obsessed with skincare! would love more of your tips and advice :)

  31. Janet, I love it! What kind of rich skin cream do you recommend?

  32. Well I was wondering if you had gone skiing with Larry. Hope your holidays were wonderful. You should do this more often your a natural. Maybe I am a bit lets say, opinionated!! Love you Sis, Teri

  33. I love the video, and I hope you make more! Just catching up on my blog reading and enjoyed your recent posts so much. Hope you had a lovely Christmas!

    Mary Grace

  34. Great job and thanks for the advice...although it only snows on the tops of the Volcanoes here in Hawaii, our skin does get dry when the hurricane winds come during the winter, so thank you for the advice!

  35. Hello! I am your newest follower and have been going over your older posts and relishing every minute... honestly I haven't been able to tear myself away! Your style is fabulous and I have a vegan son, he is a great cook and so when he comes home to visit he does his own cooking but he has inspired myself and my 12 year old daughter to become vegetarians, one step at a time I think! So I look forward to more recipes, have read your posts on no shopping and because of the new year I am inspired to clean house and get rid of the excess... thanks for the inspiration, all of it! Theresa xoxo

  36. annie - thank you. you are too funny.

    desiree - yay, another esthetician. maybe we can swap stories.

    ali - not knowing your skin type would be hard but if your skin is dry any rich cream will work. i work for aveda so i am partial to their products. i cannot live w/o my aveda green science moisturizer.

    teri - thanks and i'll call when i get home. love you too.

    mary grace - thanks, i'll try too.

    connie lou - thanks. i know you are lucky in your tropical paradise.

    theresa - thank you and you are very welcome. once i'm home i'll be posting more recipes again.

  37. Janet, I took off a few weeks as my boys are home and there was so much going on. I see that you, too, took off a bit of time. I loved this video. I am such a visual person, it is fun to watch you and you have a great media presence! You are easy to follow and the info is practical! Nice!!

  38. Thank you for the tips! :)

    Happy New Year! May 2011 bring you peace, health, success and great company! XOXO Nicky

  39. Wish you and your family a happy new year:)

    Best wishes from Norway,
    Camilla at home

  40. Hey Janet, if I could only do one of the things you have suggested I would be much better off today!

    Your such a cutie....Happy New Year

  41. I'm so thrilled to see you and your cute accent on film! Love all your tips for cold weather too.

  42. I am really enjoying your new role as a film star Janet, excellent, you are so cute on camera, are you sure you are not Selma B?? Please could you add chocolate to your skincare tips - either eaten or smeared on face? No, oh well, worth a try I thought. What about chips? Lard? Cake? xx


kindness is never out of style.
