New Year’s Skin and Hair Care Resolution

new years skin and hair care

Today and tomorrow may be your last time to relax before 2014 officially starts. Then it’s back to school…back to work…back to life…back to reality…

Still looking for some inspiration to get the New Year off to a grand start? Start with you! This is a great time to take care of yourself, even if you just set aside 10 minutes to do so. You can even multi-task to make the most of those minutes. Read on to find out how.

Relaxing Facial Masks for Perfect Pampering

Start with a face mask—even if your skin is pitch perfect. Any complexion can benefit from a moisturizing face mask once a week during the winter months. Doing so can launch your visage to the next level of dewy youthfulness.

Elemis’ Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask is an excellent choice for face and neck.

If your skin is stressed and/or sensitive, Juvena’s Specialist Moisture Plus Gel Mask is the ideal choice. This multi-tasking treatment can also be used as a lip balm!

If you don’t even have ten minutes because you’re running out of the house for a cocktail party or dinner, try Juvena’s Specialist Instant Optimal Look Mask. The name may be a mouthful, but in just five minutes it will give you an instant lift and glow. This is the Travel Beauty travel mask of choice.

Hair & Scalp Treatments for Your Tresses

While your face mask is gelling, turn your attention to your hair and scalp.

Try Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer right now! We can’t recommend this product enough, especially if you highlight, bleach or chemically process your hair. This is a must at least twice a week. You can sleep in it; work out in it and even golf with it in. This intensive moisturizing treatment is magic!

We also recommend Caretrico’s Moist Bounce Treatment. This lightweight conditioner is ideal for dry and/or color treated hair. It works well as a deep conditioning treatment or mask. Those with thick, curly hair can also use this as a defrizzing and curl-defining leave-in conditioner.

Eye Masks

Feeling a little bit of champ-shame about how much you drank (not to mention ate) this holiday season? Copious consumption could leave your eyes puffy and your skin sallow. No problem! Here are a couple of instant eye pick-me-ups that will get you going in the right direction:

Institut Esthederm’s Repair System Eye Contour Lift Patches are fast penetrating patches that target all concerns of the eye area: bags, shadows, wrinkles, sagging skin and swelling. In as little as 6 minutes a few days a week, you can take years off your eye area.

Bliss’ Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask will also do the trick. For extra de-puffing power, chill the dual chamber packet in the refrigerator for up to 5 minutes prior to application.

Mustache, Sideburns, Chin Hairs, Treasure Trail, etc.

While you’re de-puffing your eyes, you can defuzz your thighs (and other bits). We have addressed this before in several truncated social updates, but we feel compelled to delve a bit deeper into this topic. Even if you typically frequent a spa to wax all of the above-mentioned areas, it is a good idea to have Bliss Poetic Waxing Strips for Face and Body on hand at all times. These do-it-yourself strips are made with spa quality wax, and are completely idiot proof. They are priceless when you’re in a rush, on the go or just returned from the spa, realized they missed a spot and heading to the airport in three hours (we can’t be the only ones).

And not to harp, but if you think that a blond mustache is ok, we are here to kindly remind you that it is not. We are telling you because we care…and because mom probably can’t spot your ‘stache during your FaceTime chats.

We hope you take the time to indulge in one, some or all of these personal care pick-me-ups. Even a few minutes of me-time can transform your mood and outlook from hung-over to happy-go-lucky. For more tips, tricks and tools to perfect your look, find us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram!

Travel Diaries: Winter Vacation

skin care for warm and cold weather vacation

Winter is upon us, which for many means traveling. Whether you are off to the slopes of St. Moritz or the sands of St. Barths, packing proper skin care is essential!

Going to the Beach?

Be sure to have a sunscreen for face and body that will protect your skin from the sun – one that is easy to reapply after a dip in the ocean. Everyone is unique and reacts to the elements differently. Sun tends to accelerate the skin’s aging process. Bring B. Kamins Laboratories Sun Defense SPF 30 for face, neck and décolleté. It not only protects you from the harmful rays of the sun, but also guards against premature wrinkles that can result from sun exposure.

For Body

Pack Institut Esthederm Adaptasun Sea and Tropics Body Lotion SPF 20. Adaptasun ensures safe prolonged sun exposure in severe conditions, including the intense tropical sun. It allows a deep, intense natural tan to develop without any harmful UV damage. Adaptasun is formulated with UV in-Cellium Technology to protect the skin from the inside by strengthening its self-defense systems. This hi-tech sunscreen is also extremely moisturizing, and can be used as your primary body moisturizer during your trip, making it a multi-tasking skin care product ideal for traveling light.

Let’s Not Forget…

If you can’t make it to the spa before your trip, here is a great tip:

pack Bliss Poetic Waxing Strips for Body! They are superb for use on legs and other bits that might be in need of a fleecing. The wax is spa-quality and can be quickly warmed by rubbing in between your hands. These strips are very convenient and easy to use on the go – even in your hotel room.

Going Skiing?

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean that you are safe from the sun’s harmful rays. In addition to the sun, strong winds and bitter cold can also attack skin, breaking down its defenses and leading to further damage. I recommend applying a hearty anti-aging serum, like B. Kamins Laboratories Nia-Stem Serum Kx. This unique formulation includes:

  • Niacin
  • Plant stem cells
  • The exclusive Bio-Maple™ Compound

This unique combination minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and age spots. It detoxifies skin cells to reveal bright, even-toned and younger-looking skin. Follow the serum with a great moisturizing facial sunscreen, like B. Kamins Laboratories Sun Defense SPF 30. This is a perfect duo to protect your face as you as plow down the mountain.

For Lips

Whether you’ll be seeing sand or snow, be sure to pack B. Kamins Laboratories SPF 20 Lip Balm as well. In extreme cold, wind or sun, lips are usually the first place to suffer. Just a few minutes of exposure to extreme weather can lead to days of chapped, cracked lips. Reapply your lip balm frequently to keep your lips comfortable and protected all day and night.

Bon Voyage!

Holiday Ready

Holiday beauty tips and gift ideas

Getting Ready to Celebrate

Getting ready to celebrate can be hard work! At just the time when we want to look our best, we do many things that actually detract from our natural beauty. We are constantly running around: from party to party, between friends, family and work commitments and celebrations.

We may indulge in rich foods that we do not normally eat and imbibe more spirits than our bodies are used to. When we finally get to bed, stress over this fast-paced time of year can keep us awake much later than we’d like, leaving us sleep deprived – and looking it!

All this, coupled with the onset of cold weather (here in the Northeast, at least) can have a visible impact on our skin. Many of our holiday commitments may be out of our control, but how we nourish ourselves during this hectic time is in our hands.

Protecting Our Visage from the Elements

Protecting our visage from the elements and stress – basically taking care of it as best as we can – is the most important thing we can do for our overall health and appearance. Make sure to use a rich moisturizer that will protect your face from the cold and wind. B. Kamins Laboratories has a new line of plant stem cell products that offers excellent anti-aging moisturizing benefits, and can be used everyday and all year round. Nia-Stem Moisturizer Kx, is a perfect daily anti-aging moisturizer for all ages and skin types! This non-greasy formula contains niacin, plant stem cells and an exclusive Bio-Maple™ Compound, designed to improve skin tone and texture, enhance cell metabolism and promote tissue regeneration. You will truly see a younger, fresher, brighter complexion.

Daily use of B. Kamins Nia-Stem Moisturizer Kx will help reverse and protect your skin from the signs of aging and visible dark spots due to sun damage. The B. Kamins line is also fabulous for sensitive skin. For rosacea related issues, make sure to check out the Soothing Skin Concentrate.

Pollution Protection

It is also extremely important to protect ourselves from pollution, especially for those of us that live in cities and/or spend a lot of time outdoors. In the winter months, Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash is specially formulated to gently protect us against environmental damage.

Treat Yourself to a Facial

The holiday season is also a great time to treat yourself to a facial. A facial will give you an extra glow, lift and an overall improved appearance, as well provide the added support your complexion needs during this demanding time of year. Best of all, you’ll leave the spa feeling more glamorous and relaxed than before – a holiday gift to yourself you certainly deserve!
