We all desire gorgeous younger-looking skin with luminous glow and radiance. However, achieving truly radiant skin involves taking two proactive steps. The first step is exfoliation, which clarifies the skin and prepares it for proper acceptance of absorbability of treatment. The second step involves delivering the treatment that the skin has been prepared for. There are two brands which brilliantly achieve these two goals. They are Clarisonic
and Ole Henriksen
. Clarisonic PRO is used to facilitate step one and Ole Henriksen spa has the perfect treatments to facilitate the second step of these two processes.Clarisonic-Prepare the Skin
Many of you are probably familiar with Clarisonic and how and why it works so well. But for those of you who aren’t familiar with the extremely popular device and brand; it’s a system which uses sonic technology to cleanse and clarify the skin. Clarisonic skin care offers a wide variety of devices depending on your needs, your taste and your price range. Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Spot Treatment-Whimsy Print Bonus Set
is the newest offering from the superb and professional skin care company. Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Spot Treatment-Whimsy Print Bonus Set
not only offers a number of uses, it’s also designed for those with discriminating taste in terms of look and appeal. Clarisonic reviews are always outstanding and this particular system is of no exception. The Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Spot Treatment not only cleanses and exfoliates the skin two times better than manual cleansing alone and six times better in terms of makeup removal (leaving it radiantly clarified) and prepares the skin for further treatment serums, but it also comes with some very impressive extra perks. The Clarisonic Plus Skin Care System with Spot Treatment works for problem areas about the body (as well as the face) and the bonus set comes with extra brush heads, skin care products (including a Clarisonic cleanser) and a carrying case just to name a few. And all at an exceptional value and price point.
Clarisonic may also be used by those with sensitive skin. The brand also offers Clarisonic replacement brush heads for those who may need a gentler approach. Clarisonic Brush Head Duo-Sensitive
is a $50 value priced at only forty dollars and comes with two additional Clarisonic brush heads that may be interchanged with the Clarisonic system for those times when you need or want less-aggressive cleansing. Clarisonic Brush Head Duo-Sensitive
is yet another outstanding option that Clarisonic has developed in order for anyone to achieve silky, younger looking skin. Be sure to also check out the Clarisonic Opal, a unique device just for the eyes.Ole Henriksen-Treat the Skin
Absorbable topical vitamin C is by far one of the best skin treatments to provide healthy cellular turnover and promote collagen health and production. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster
is chockfull of vitamin C and other healthy skin boosting antioxidants. This is another five star rated Ole Henriksen skin care product which shines in terms of stellar Ole Henriksen reviews. This is one of the many Ole Henriksen products which superbly nourishes and hydrates the skin. After using this lightweight and highly absorbable Ole Henriksen face treatment your skin will be left glowing and smooth. Wrinkles will be significantly dimished and pores will be dramatically minimized. And you don’t have to stop with the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum because Ole Henriksen skincare also offers treatment products for the signs of aging around the eyes. Ole Henriksen Total Truth Eye Creme SPF 15
will revitalize and protect the delicate skin around the eyes, leaving the skin looking much brighter and much more firmed up. The formula uses Omega 3 extracts and potent peptides to hydrate, strengthen and protect the under eye area resulting in beautiful younger looking eyes.
So if you’re in the market for a peaches and cream complexion and radiant younger looking skin, all you have to do is buy Clarisonic and buy Ole Henriksen…and beautiful skin will be there for the taking!
Why is it that when one writes about diets or even researches them….all they can think about doing is eating?? I mean obviously it makes sense that one would be thinking about food so yes I get that whole subliminal message part…But I wasn’t even hungry…not one bit! In fact, I’ve been under the weather with virtually no appetite…but within the two and a half hours it took me to do this research and write this article I’ve eaten an egg salad sandwich, a half a pound of asparagus, a burrito, chips and sour cream, rice krispy bars and a scoop of ice cream! So let’s just put it this way…If you want to lose weight…don’t write about it! In other words…Kids! Don’t try this at home!! But at least the good news is I really now have a reason to go to the market to pick up my diet foods and to stick to the darn diet! Let’s choose a diet, make a list and go to the store!
Today BR reviews and shares with all of you the most popular and effective diets ever (excluding my own behavior today of course). So which diets work best? And why?
The top diets in terms of ratings and results include The Atkins Diet, Eat This, Not That, the ever so tried and true Grapefruit Diet, the new anti-aging Dr. Perricone Diet and of course my own very favorite The Kim Lyons 10-Day Plan (endorsed by Dr. Oz).
Now let’s break it down for you. There are a number of theories as to why we gain weight as well as how we can best lose it. And each of these diets (as well as many others) offers a number of theories which describe their individual rationales as to why and how they each approach weight loss.
The controversial Atkins’s plan has been around for years and still tends to be a favorite among many followers. The low-carbohydrate diet is said to offer significant weight loss along with a feeling of satiety. Their theory is that people who gain excessive weight oftentimes eat too many carbs. And since carbs are used by our body first, then consuming less of them will cause the body to burn stored body fat instead. Most experts agree that a diet that puts us into ketosis does indeed work in terms of weight loss however, many feel that there are other risk factors, and that weight loss should not be the only reason to go on a diet.
Eat This, Not That is a great way to make a lifestyle change and to eat healthier. Typically if you eat something high in calories you will indeed gain weight, whereas if you choose the alternative that is low in calories you’ll certainly tend to lose. But the thing I love best about this diet is that it’s a great book of nutritional awareness. You will find yourself more interested in fresh foods, ingredients and steering clear of packaged foods.
Low cal diets such as The Grapefruit Diet always seem to work. After all, it makes sense. If you’re metabolism allows you to consume 1500 calories a day (for instance) and you eat only 1200 the result will certainly be weight loss. The problem is that many times these types of diets aren’t fully supplementing all the nutrients one needs in their daily values therefore they should only be used in short periods and then perhaps use the quick weight loss as a motivator to a lifestyle change for the better. Note: Grapefruits have long been the center of these diets because there is said to be a certain ingredient within the fruit that kicks up the fat fighting triggers.
Dr. Perricone is the latest doctor who has jumped on board of the diet scene, although his suggestions for making dietary changes in your life are not only for weight loss, but also for anti-aging and longevity as well as for a better quality of life. Dermatologist Nicholas Perricone MD has designed a program to look and feel younger with a diet supplemented with nutrients and treatments that truly seem to promote ageless beauty and well-being. The doctor says his approach helps with inflammation, promotes an uplifted mood, is good for your heart and decreases cancer risk just to name a few of the Perricone Diet’s benefits.
Last but not least…my favorite of all. I used this diet six months ago and after mowing down everything in my kitchen today I will be starting it again first thing in the morning! It’s called Kim Lyons Ultimate 10-Day Plan to Trim Fat for Good
and you can find all the details (including the grocery list) on Dr. Oz’s website!
One of the best things about reading an array of beauty blogs is that you get so many different perspectives on beauty in terms of thinking both in and outside the (beauty) box. And even better, you learn about beauty tips, ideas, services and products that you’ve possibly never even dreamed of. That’s why I love reading eyeslipsface.com. Today while perusing the fab eyeslipsface beauty blog
I came across a post about a facial that even I (who's been in this biz for over a quarter century now) had never even heard about. One of the gifted contributors at ELF (their writers are affectionately known as elfettes!) shared with us one of Kate Middleton’s favorite beauty secrets…the very effective and (I’m thinking) highly potent…bee venom facial! The post entitled, “Is Bee Venom the New Botox?
” will have even the most bee-phobic women waiting in line to get stung! (Just kidding…apparently there’s no stinging involved, thank heavens!)
Botox is to a facelift as teeth whitening is to porcelain veneers. If you want a dramatic change in skin aging…go with a facelift and if you want a dramatic change in terms of your smile, go with porcelain veneers. Do you have teeth that you feel could break the proverbial mirror when you look into it and smile? If you’re in dire need of a profound change in terms of your teeth and smile, there is indeed hope other than the typical mid-range upgrades such as tooth whitening or easy to normal straightening or even crowns.
Porcelain veneers (aka dental veneers or porcelain laminates) are customized shells or fronts of tooth-like material that are cemented to the fronts of teeth in order to improve and change the shape, color, size and length of each individual tooth. Dental veneers may be a good choice for you if you are unhappy with severely discolored teeth, chipped, broken or worn down teeth, teeth that are uneven, mal-aligned or irregularly shaped, or have significant gaps between them.
Dental veneers have significant pros as well as some unfortunate cons. Pros include providing a natural gorgeous smile, the teeth become stain resistant, can close unsightly gaps and they can provide whiter better shaped teeth fairly quickly and relatively permanently. However, the cons include everything from cost to unhappy and irreversible results. And they may cause sensitivity to hot and cold, and are contraindicated for those who grind their teeth.
Porcelain veneers can be a fabulous option for those who are dissatisfied with their smile, but it is mandatory to be well informed on the procedure as well as expected outcomes. If you are indeed a good candidate for them and are thrilled with your outcome, then they certainly do have the potential to make you smile from ear to ear!
Just like many discoveries (scientific, medical, and other breakthroughs) which were brought about via mistakes or happenstance, many great beauty tips and ideas have been discovered accidentally as well. One in particular that I happened upon myself was that of an impromptu use of some facial products due to forgetting to pack my body products on a recent trip. After getting out of the shower and opening my train case I discovered I had forgotten to pack body lotion. All I had were several facial creams and treatments and being that my skin is so dry I had no choice but to use them on my body in order to stay comfortable.
What resulted via this potentially expensive mistake was dramatic and turned out to be a blessing in disguise. By using these smaller yet typically more expensive facial products on my body I found that I reaped the benefits tenfold. The precious ingredients used in certain facial products tend to be of higher quality and much more indication specific and results oriented and for me ended up working better on the skin of my body than they did for my face. Or possibly worked better due to the fact that the skin of my body had rarely ever been exposed to the strength of these particular ingredients.
I noticed that by the time I had returned home to my normal body products, the skin of my body looked much firmer, brighter, more toned and less spotted. I now buy large sizes of many of my favorite beauty creams and treatments so that I can spread the wealth more often.
There are three brands in particular that you may want to consider using as your co-face and body treatments, depending on your concerns. Kinerase, StriVectin and Perricone MD all offer extremely results oriented anti-aging skin care and all offer large sizes of many of their treatments, lotions and creams. I hope if you decide to experiment with this little unexpected finding of mine, that you’re just as impressed as I am!
As always, be sure that whatever you’re using is safe in terms of the quantities, ratios and formulations for your body (and/or specific parts) and that you are still using them as directed.
Whether they adorn an itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow bikini or a cupcake, polka dots are sure to bring about a smile. The small solid circles displayed in a vast array of designs and colors are often used for decoration, whether it is adorning furniture, clothing, toys or food. Polka dots have a long history in fashion and a variety of theories as to just how they came to be. Some suggest it was from the wild costumes worn for Polka dancing, others say it was from an ink blot that fell on Minnie Mouse’s dress from Walt Disney’s pen, but however their start, they are certainly here to stay!
Magazines and catalogs often feature the dotted design on their coveted covers showing off dresses from Vogue or perhaps a sofa from Ikea; and it’s easy to see why. I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t get a sense of happiness from looking at materials garnished in polka dots. Some (perhaps old folklore) say the bliss that arises from one’s soul is because the dots remind them of the sun which we associate with immeasurable energy and vivacity.
The nice thing about decorating with polka dots is that virtually anything goes, and better yet…you can do it yourself! Simply go to the fabric shop and purchase remnants or any polka dotted fabric (or simply sew or glue some dots onto the fabric, or onto anything for that matter) and make pillows for your sofa, or add some dots to your jeans or even just sew yourself a polka dotted dress. And if you don’t want to DIY, many accessories, beauty tools, fashion and furniture can be easily found already embellished with plenty of the round filled circles.
I think I may have just realized why the heck I love Lady Bugs so very much!!
No matter the ethnicity, hair type, hair color or hair length…the one common denominator for 2012 hair, is that virtually anything goes! Hairstyles are so broad spectrum this season that I wouldn’t even know which one to report on in terms of popularity. I suppose if I really had to choose which seems to reign this year, I guess I’d have to go with the pony tail. Pony tails are ruling the runways this year no matter the fashion theme. Typically they’re being worn sleek, straight and elegant, but sloppy, messy dos and buns are having their way on the fashion runway as well.
As stated, there are a number of hair styles trending this year. Everything from the 50’s inspired bouffant to the 70’s hippy chic is in vogue. The latter being tousled loose hair without volume (and yes…you guessed it…a center part!). Hair styles this year tend to be either extremely groomed and executed or they are as simple as an ‘I-just-got-outta-bed’ look. Hair styles that are tightly coiffed are often adorned with accessories such as barrettes, pins and other fashionable hair bobbles and trinkets to keep those tresses sleek and extraordinary!
This writer wholeheartedly agrees with the look, appeal and convenience of the perky and pretty pony tail…but I’m not so sure about the center part tousled 70’s inspired look (sans volume)…unless of course they amp up the volume!
Julianne Hough is a singer, dancer, choreographer, songwriter and actress, but is best known for her professional role with ABC’s hit series, Dancing with the Stars. Julianne comes from a very long line of dancers, including her parents as well as her grandparents. She has won two seasons of the popular reality television show. The former win was with former Olympian Apolo Ohno (DWTS Season 4) and the latter with the three-time Indianapolis 500 winner, Helio Castroneves (DWTS Season 5). Hough was born in Sandy, Utah in July of 1988 to Mari Anne and Bruce Robert Hough and was raised in a Mormon home. She is one of their five children. Her brother Derek is also a professional dancer. Both she and her brother Derek were sent by their parents to London to live and train with their coaches, Corky and Shirley Ballas to help cultivate their great talent as well as be away from what their parents felt was to eventually be a life of marital strife and imminent divorce. The two siblings trained along with their coaches’ son, the now famous Mark Ballas.
Even though dancing is obviously in Hough’s genes, it seems that these days she prefers to be singing from a stage as opposed to dancing on one. She has made quite a splash in the country music scene. Her (self-titled) debut album hit the scene in July 2008 and debuted in the number one slot of the Billboard Country Album Chart. She has toured with the likes of Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Jewel, proving that she’s a force to be reckoned with in terms of the country music world.
The beautiful blonde haired, blue-eyed Julianne is mesmerizing on stage (whether it be a small community theatre stage, a huge events stage, the television, or the big screen!). At only 5’4” the tiny framed beauty commands the presence that only a well-trained dancer could demonstrate. She dances as well as some of the greatest names in history…she’s a gifted and proven actress and she sings like a bird. She’s the triple threat! She’s lovely to look at, to watch move, and to listen to sing…what more could a 24 year old American beauty ever want? Julianne’s got it all!

That relaxing day we all know as our special “girls’ day” or that fun day where we get to go use our salon gift certificate or even our bi-monthly trip to the nail salon to get our acrylic fills or regular manicure and pedicure, may not always be a day of joy…but can oftentimes be a day of disaster. Nail salons are a huge industry that made 6 billion dollars last year alone. However, many salons may not have spent a whole heck of a lot of that revenue on keeping their salons safe. It turns out that many nail salons can be dangerous in terms of contracting fungal, bacterial and even life threatening infections. At least two deaths have been linked to infections due to microbial pathogens contracted from unsanitary nail salons, including the horrific flesh-eating bacteria. Obviously, for the most part nail salons are very safe, but we can make them even safer by taking charge of our health and becoming our own health and well-being advocates.
Typically, the only worry when going to the nail salon is whether or not you’re happy with your results and the cost of the service. However, there are many more things you may need to be worrying about. There are indeed dangers that lurk at the very place you think is going to be your day of sanctuary. Common dangers that commonly exist are bacterial and fungal infections and other hazards that seem to be in epidemic proportions. But luckily there are things you can do to be and feel safe and confident when you’re in the salon chair.
Be sure to be very attentive while you’re at the salon. Particularly, while you’re waiting to be seated.
• Take note of the common practices of each technician. Particularly her station cleaning habits. Is she thoroughly cleansing the pedicure tub? Not just rinsing it with water, but is she spraying or using a disinfectant and then wiping it dry before she fills it up for the next patron? Bacteria and fungus and yeast have all been found in pedicure tubs. And even more important than washing the tub itself is thoroughly washing and sanitizing the drain area…because that’s where bacteria and debris live and thrive the most. The drain needs even more attention and detail when it comes to disinfecting.
• Next watch to see if the manicurist grabs a clean set of implements (directly from an autoclave or UV sanitizer or packaged and ready to go for the next client). If the same implements are sitting there from the last client, be sure and ask for a new clean set. Or even better, you may want to consider bringing your own.
• A common way to get infections is through nicks and cuts from freshly shaved skin. Do not get a pedicure if you have any recent wounds because they are a direct thoroughfare for bacteria to enter. Additionally, do not allow your cuticles to be cut…this is another opportunity for bacteria to make their way into the body. Cuticle cutting is actually illegal in many states. Cuticles are there for a reason…to protect!
• Also be sure that if the same files, buffers and orangewood sticks, etc. are still sitting on the tray from the last customer, you should mention it to the technician and state that you would like a fresh new set for your treatment.
There are many other precautions we should take as well, but for now these are some very common ones that are fairly easy to manage simply by educating ourselves on these as well as other possible hazards. But this last one should be the easiest for all to follow…Be sure that every technician and (every client should as well) washes their hands before and after each and every appointment!
We’ve long known that vitamins and dietary supplements can not only help us with our general health but also for our specific organs (such as our skin), as well. But when we typically think of specific supplements for our body systems such as our skin and hair, we’re usually referring to the health and revitalization of skin (and other specific systems) which are specific to women. However, there are indeed dietary supplements for men’s specific and individual needs (in terms of skin and other various body systems) as well. Today’s article explores dietary supplemental options for both women and men. And the two brands which target these gender specifics brilliantly are CosMedix
and Anthony Logistics for Men
Whether you’re a man or a woman there are super supplements to address and support the health of your skin, hair and other organs and systems. CosMedix offers two dietary supplements in particular that work brilliantly for either sex. CosMedix Clarity Supplement
is the perfect choice for addressing blemish-prone skin from within. By addressing the needs of problematic skin internally (along with your normal external and topical regimen), CosMedix Clarity Supplement
uses chirally-correct nutrients which minimize and reduce breakouts and also encourage normal, healthy oil production. Like many CosMedix reviews, this Cosmedix skin care supplement is five-star rated. CosMedix facial supplements are reported by CosMedix enthusiasts to be “Wonderful products,” “Results speak for themselves” and often even boast, “Buy CosMedix!” Search for CosMedix online and check out CosMedix Refine reviews as well as the many CosMedix peels reviews and you’ll sure to be impressed!
And luckily for those of us who are in search of ageless beauty, we too can potentiate our topical skin care regimens and CosMedix facial treatments with the supplements. CosMedix products are generally four times as effective as other brands due to their chemically, cellular and chirally correct technology. CosMedix SKINamins
are a blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and nutrients which promote radiant skin from the inside out. CosMedix SKINamins
are highly efficacious and remarkably results-oriented yet they are much less expensive than most of the other professional skin care brands (which also offer skin and dietary support), making them the perfect choice for most anyone to use.Anthony Logistics
I really feel that Anthony Logistics for Men is a fantastic brand for the guys because they offer a number of Anthony for Men categories, lines and products, depending on each male patron’s needs and wants. There are Anthony product lines such as, Anthony Logistics skin care as well as Anthony hair, Anthony shave (including Anthony cream formulas which by the way do indeed result in great results!), Anthony facial products, and today’s featured line, Anthony Logistics for Men Inside
Anthony men now have the opportunity to reap the benefits of internal support with two superior Anthony Logistics for Men products called Anthony Inside Hair Supplement
and Anthony Inside Libido Supplement
. Both of these Anthony products exhibit highly impressive Anthony Logistics reviews. Effective and convenient, Anthony Inside Hair Supplement
supports and promotes hair health and growth with the rich and healthy ingredients formulated into it, such as resveratrol, biotin and saw palmetto, just to name a few. Anthony Inside Libido Supplement
will help support and kick into gear, an extremely impressive sex drive. The highly rated Anthony libido supplement increases desire, drive, function and pleasure. It’s very easy to see why each Anthony Logistic review I’ve read so far about this product has been a very emphatic five stars!
We’ve all seen fashion trends come and go and circle right back around again only to bite us in the seat of our pretty new pants. Whether it’s dress and skirt hemlines, jean rises and lengths, and cropped tops and long blouses OR fashion inspired trends from movies and media, we’ve all either succumbed to them or have at least watched the many changes and resurrections as they transpire. Lately, I’ve been pondering how the many fashion trends I’ve witnessed in my own life have not only come and gone, but have come right back again. I used to love watching shows like I Love Lucy and have often thought over the years…I sure wish those little cropped pencil pants would come back; or conversely, have hoped and prayed that the 70’s style from shows like The Brady Bunch would not!
But the bottom line is whether we loved the styles from our past, or we despised them…the one thing we can almost certainly count on is that they will indeed crop up their pretty or ugly little heads once again. And this fall season is of no exception!
I’m not sure if it’s still a trickle down effect from the royal wedding or simply because all eyes have been on London over the last few months with the London 2012 games, but the one thing that does seem to be clear…is that the Brits have certainly inspired us for the Fall 2012 fashion season.
The runways are abounding with materials and styles that boast hip and chic UK style. The season’s clothes are constructed with materials like leather, hound’s-tooth, chic silks and crisp cotton. The styles are typically tailored to be snuggly fit or are largely loose and are oftentimes a paradox of femininity and feminism. Colors are either monochrome in all white or equally paired with other solids such as charcoal or black; or they’re vibrantly shocking and oftentimes what we may consider deliberately mismatched, in terms of the norm. My favorite look so far has been the pairing of a sleek white suit with jackets of fur and leather in brown tones.
English inspired fashion this season consists of everything ranging from regal or royal feminine looks to an outdoor rugged huntsman type couture to a perfectly clad Iron Lady inspiration.
If you’re desirous of achieving the look of the Isles…be sure and take note of the must-have list below!
Fall Fashion Check-list:
Leather boots and gloves
Fur coat (and yes…faux is more than fine!)
Tights (various solid colors)
White tailored blouse (crisp cotton with a small percentage of poly blend)
Brightly colored bag and scarf
Soft, silky capped sleeved dress (in pink, salmon, or nude tones)

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder…And of course on one level I imagine that to be true. However, what we forget is how often what we are looking at (in terms of what we think is beautiful) has actually changed and sometimes we don’t even realize it. So what we once considered to be unattractive, we may now find attractive and conversely, what we once thought to be quite attractive may now appear unattractive within our own mind’s eye. Is this phenomenon simply trends that manipulate us…or do we actually change and evolve in terms of what we find physically attractive?
As alluded to above, it seems that my theory is that we are manipulated by media in terms of what we individually and collectively consider to be beautiful…and that’s probably true. Whether we’re influenced and driven by curvier models and actresses such as Marilyn Monroe or Anna Nicole Smith, or we’re obsessing over our bod’s because we’ve been convinced we need to look like Kate Moss or Angelina Jolie; it seems pretty clear that what we find beautiful truly fluctuates with what we’re bombarded with.
But we here in the United States aren’t the only people with our own ideas and ideals about what we feel is beautiful. Being beautiful has been in vogue for thousands of years. Think Cleopatra! And in Africa still to this day there are still tribes and countries which find beauty in looks that are different from ours. Intricate and large piercings, elaborate jewelry and hairstyles, and face and body paintings are still used today by people to express their beauty and desires.
However, no matter where we are in the world or who we are…we all know what is beautiful to each and every one of us…and I think most any human being will agree…that beauty which comes from the inside…is truly the best kind!
My mother ship has just landed! We all know how much I love reading and writing about great beauty products…and many of you also know how much I love bronzers! Today while perusing the fabulous beauty blog, themakeupgirl.net
, I read a great little post about a fantastic multi-tasking bronzer. Check out Lianne’s post entitled,“Must Have Bronzers: It Cosmetics, Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc
.” Great read, great info and great product!
