Dry Brushing: Why You Should Be Doing It

When I was in Thailand I had my first experiences with dry brushing at a spa. I was told it would help not only exfoliate, but stimulate circulation. Makes sense! That’s why I use “rough” scrubs on my body. In speaking with my therapist, however, she also said it was one of the most effective ways to fight cellulite.

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

The bath is my sanctuary. A nice, long soak solves all most problems, whether it’s exhaustion, a headache, an oncoming cold, or just general crankiness. It’s about as close to the Fountain of Youth as we’re going to get. You step in after a long day, and reemerge fresh and new.

Who isn’t a sucker for good packaging? There are so many fantastic products out there that it’s one of the key things we all use to pick one over the other.

Arcona Skincare Trifecta: Three’s Company

I’ve been using Arcona’s skincare products on and off for years. My absolute favorite was the kiwi mask, which of course got discontinued. A girlfriend told me that their raspberry resurfacing peel ($68) does the same thing, but I didn’t believe her (plus, I had Renée Rouleau’s amazing triple berry peel).

Instant Refresher: In-Office Glycolic Peel

I’ve been looking like dead woman walking lately…uch. I’ve been tired and stressed and the effects are showing up on my face. I’ve also had minor breakouts that don’t seem to be going away…this is not acceptable!!! I stopped by one of New York magazine’s top rated dermatologists Dr. Schultz’s office (his office is about as luxe as it gets…), to see if there’s anything he can recommend.
