The Fountain of Youth Can Be Yours

30 Jul


Skin experts are calling it the overnight celebrity! Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to introduce you to Overnight Retinol Repair. It’s the latest addition to the Dermalogica AGE Smart line and we’re in love! What is it? Customizable retinol therapy that reverses the signs of skin aging.

What is Retinol?

For those of you who don’t know what retinol is, here’s a simple explanation: Retinol is one of the most powerful and popular ingredients sought out by consumers. It’s highly recommended by medical professionals to help reduce fine lines, visible wrinkles, discolouration and uneven skin texture. It’s a vitamin A derivative and a “cell-communicating” ingredient. That basically means it latches on to skin cells and tells them to be healthy and youthful again. Read the rest of this entry »

Fall Hair Trends 2014

22 Oct

nicole richieHello ladies! I think it’s safe to say fall has arrived. It’s time to shake things up in the hair department. Get inspired this autumn with our favorite fall hair trends. Here goes…

Color to Dye For!!!

Welcome to the dark side. While blonde will never disappear, things are warming up. Think beautiful, rich browns with red accents like Gossip Girl’s Michelle Trachtenberg. Want to keep things a little lighter? Take a page from Jessica Alba who has been spotted with a gorgeous medium chocolate brown tone. It screams, “Fall is here!” For low maintenance ladies, subtle brown highlights that start mid-shaft and frame the face will do the trick.

Then we have our blondes. The ones that will never go dark but still keep it current and trendy for the season. The “it” girl of the moment, Miss Kate Upton, has a stunning, creamy golden color that is yes…to dye for. And cutie Nicole Richie is keeping it classy with her honey blonde tresses. The California girl is always setting trends! #trendsetter

Rose gold is a new twist on blonde and has been seen on the likes of Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain. Not quite blonde, but not quite red. The gold and copper hues work with any skin tone. Read the rest of this entry »
