Beauty Product You Need for Your Frequent Workouts

It’s the new year so presumably your workout regimen is still on track. I’m actually quite proud of myself for back to back Orange Theory sessions and I even went to Yoga last night, which never happens because I blame my kids for wearing me out by 3pm (by the way, that’s when I pick … Continue reading “Beauty Product You Need for Your Frequent Workouts”

Beauty Trend: Washing Your Face with Sparkling Water

These days it seems like everywhere you turn there is a new product or technology to enhance your beauty routine. Surprisingly more and more beauty trends revolve around what’s in your fridge – not on your vanity. The buzz among beauty editors these last few months has been about washing your face with sparkling water. It’s a trend that’s come out of Japan and Korea where it’s a practice that has been going on for quite some time, but it’s only now picking up in the west. It sounded crazy to me! I actually hate sparkling water; it makes me feel bloated and irritates my throat. That said, while it seemed bizarre, it was also harmless enough to try.

Your Cleanser Can Now Also Be Your Sunscreen

Your Cleanser Can Now Also Be Your Sunscreen

One of my best friends just found a cancerous mole on her back. She lives in NYC and works ridiculous hours in an office, and yet still managed to spend enough time unprotected in the sun for this to happen. Luckily, all it took was a short procedure to remove it, but it still cost her $12,000, even with insurance…in case – aside from wrinkles – you needed more motivation to lather on sunscreen every day (even in the winter, it is a MUST!).

Can Your Dermatologist Be the Answer to Your Ingrowns?

Can Your Dermatologist Be the Answer to Your Ingrowns?

We all know what ingrowns look like – “unsightly” red bumps that many of us get after we wax, shave, sugar, thread, or pluck our bikini-area. As if wearing a bikini isn’t stressful enough! What many people don’t know is why they actually happen. They happen anytime hair grows back into the skin instead of up and out to the surface, and according to Dr. Neal Schultz, NYC dermatologist, host of DermTV.com, and creator of BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz, they’re more likely to occur if you have curly or wiry hair. He also notes that just like the blemishes that pop up on our faces, picking them will make them way worse! I’ve never actually attempted to pick at them on my own, though there are countless Youtube videos of people doing just that (again, Dr. Schultz warns NEVER to do this), but when I wax, the lady who does it removes them for me (at least some of them…), which does help.

Laneige BB Cushion: Hey, BB!

Frugal find of the month! This Korean drugstore BB cream will change your life. Never heard
of Laneige? Me neither, until recently. Amore Pacific, the largest cosmetics company in South Korea, created Laneige in 1994, and it’s become a fast favorite with girls in Asia. The story behind the brand centers around mineral water, which they like to label “Optimal Mineral Water,” harvested from the snow-clad peaks of the Himalayas. Allegedly, they spent 20 years perfecting its scientifically-engineered properties for skin and, according to Laneige, this “superior water” is the secret to hydrating, protecting, and revitalizing skin. A friend turned me on to the line when she used it to touch up her skin while sitting in my car after a Pure Barre class. She instantly looked dewy and fresh, while I remained a sweaty mess.

Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore: Building a Barrier

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2: Building a Barrier

I’ve been using SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic and Phyto+ serums for a while now, so when offered the opportunity to try their newly-launched Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 during a facial at Hiatus Spa in Texas, I was looking forward to seeing how the cream would boost the effects I’d been experiencing. My treatment was truly luxurious, starting off with a soothing foot soak (if only all facials came with head-to-toe pampering!).
