One less thing to worry about . . . wouldn't that be nice? Even more important for your self-esteem than a "good hair day" is probably having healthy, clear, toned and youthful skin. Even if you pride yourself in having a healthy diet -- and I try my best when I'm in town, green drinks and all -- you can't really get everything your skin is thirsting for. With modern farming techniques, foods trucked in from thousands of miles away, etc., etc., it's hard to get your vitamins and minerals!

And yet, if you don't, you surely won't have beautiful, youthful and resilient skin. Murad to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.

I've taken a few of their supplements: Youth Builder Dietary Supplement, Firm and Tone Dietary Supplement Pack and Pure Skin Clarifying Dietary Supplement. These each address different skin needs, though some overlap.

Here's the thing: I have a very harsh to skin lifestyle. I'm constantly jet-lagged, eat at European, Middle Eastern and Asian breakfast buffets, drink wines and liqueurs, hate sporty exercise. When I was taking the supplements, my skin was resilient and clear, even through times when it should have -- and normally would have -- been a mess. It's so much more fun to think about what makeup to wear for color, rather than having to plan a battle attack to hide bad skin.

There's no doubt about it: taking the supplements takes some strong self-discipline. The Youth Builder, as well as Pure Skin, come in pills that aren't soft tabs and need to be taken twice a day. The Firm and Tone Dietary Supplement Pack comes in these handy-dandy packs divided into Day and Night. The contents are a mixture of pills and easier to swallow softgels. These packs were perfect when I've been traveling abroad.

They do help your appearance, which everyone seems to be more hyper-aware of these days, what with selfies, Instagram, Facebook, You Tube, etc. Some people have profile pics they've put together for online dating/hookup sites. It's a very important time to look good!
