Best Spring Pastels

Best Spring Pastels: A Glimmer of Shimmer

Remember those pastel – or I should say, pasty – lipsticks we wore in the ninth grade? We all looked like defective Barbies with our frosty blue eye shadow and pale pink lips. Fortunately, the science behind our makeup has only improved since then, as have the trends! Today’s pastels involve just a glimmer of shimmer, rather than a chalky, unflattering consistency.

Resveratrol: A Key Anti-Aging Ingredient

Caudalie has build a veritable empire on the antioxidant power of grapes. In fact, before anyone in mainstream beauty was talking about antioxidants, they maintained that resveratrol (obtained from the skins of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes), had tremendous anti-aging benefits and was the first skincare brand to use it topically – and the first to patent it in stabilized levels.

The Surprising Beauty Benefits of Honey

Legend has it that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey…if it was good enough for Cleopatra, reason dictates that there must be some fantastic beauty benefits to honey. Honey, in fact, is a natural humectant meaning it draws water to the skin so it’s awesome this time of year when skin tends to be dry.

Top 5 Super Hydrators Under $40: Winter Warriors

There are just two more days left in NYFW (it always goes by quickly!), and so far my skin is taking the arctic NYC temperatures like a champ. Normally, I have a thirteen-step skincare routine, but when you can barely even make time to eat, some steps must fall to the wayside.

Avene Thermal Spring Water

Avene Thermal Spring Water: Into the Mist

I have lots of hydrating atomizers and have used them forever, thinking they’re pretty much all the same. Until I started using Avene’s Thermal Spring Water, that is. This isn’t like the Evian that’s just water in a special dispenser that atomizes. To begin with, Avene’s particular dispenser is a little more complex.

Renee Rouleau Bio Brasion: Turning Back the Clock

In the first few weeks of 2014, I have already racked up over 25K frequent flier miles, traveling throughout two continents and six cities. As fun as it’s been, my skin quickly began to feel like dry, crackling paper, sending me running straight to my longtime esthetician, Renee Rouleau.

Coconut Oil: It’s Not Just For The Kitchen

Despite the rise in popularity of coconut water people often have bad associations with coconuts because they think they’re high cholesterol. It’s actually one of the healthiest oils to cook with because it’s high in immunity-boosting lauric acid and it can help with nutrient absorption, digestion, and more.
