Lora Answers...your 40 year old questions!

Here's something fun we're going to try at Lora's Beauty, an advice column!  This isn't any old advice column, however.  This advice column is answering questions written into magazine beauty editors over 40 years ago. It's interesting to see the questions asked and the advice given. So...let's get started with the first question:

I'm going on a bicycle camping trip with very little room for cosmetics. Which would you consider the essentials?

Answer 40 years ago:
Why not let your natural beauty shine through? Your eyes will be bright and clear from the healthy exercise, and your cheeks glowing from the increased circulation in your body. However, a must is a tiny bottle of Ten-O-Six Lotion to keep your skin clean. Exercise your body, Ten-O-Six your face. Twice a day wherever you are.  Add a moisturizer and a possible suntan lotion for protection and you're off packing. Enjoy the trip!

Lora's Answer Today:
First off, I must say, this is the BEST BEAUTY QUESTION EVER! In fact, it brings up a bunch of questions I have, such as: Where did you go?  What kind of bike did you ride?  How many miles a day did you do?  Did you travel in a group, solo, or just a couple people?  What was the best part of travelling by bike?  What was the worst?  Did you follow the beauty advice given to you 40 years ago?  Did you get sunburned?  Did you get skin cancer?  I hope not.  

Answering that question today, however, I would advice that you carry LOTS of sunscreen and not just any sunscreen, but Lora's Beauty Face and Body Sunscreen.  It's made with zinc oxide and is free of suspect chemicals like parabens, oxybenzone, PABA and retinyl palmitate. I would also recommend carrying Lora's Beauty Skin and Saddle Sore Salve. This salve will protect your skin from prolonged exposure to riding in a saddle. This salve is also all natural without sulfates. Take a bar of Lora's Beer Shampoo and Soap as well. Again, an all natural, chemical free soap that will do double duty on your bike trip. Finally, toss in a Lora's Beauty Pocket Washcloth to help scrub off the road grime. This washcloth is light weight and contains a little loop on it that will work perfectly hooked over your handlebars to dry! I hope you enjoyed your trip!
