One of the best things you can do for the health of your skin is to drink more water. Still, I admit to reaching for a glass of Diet Coke before a bottle of H2O.
I’ve promised myself that I’m going to drink more water in ’08 – and I think this will be a resolution I can stick to, because I’ve found a way to be stylish while staying hydrated.
Combining function and fashion, SIGG’s lightweight aluminum bottles come in 144 unique designs. And with 22 different interchangeable lids available, you can find a combination that expresses your personality. SIGG bottles are manufactured in an ecologically-friendly environment and are 100% recyclable after their very long lives.
So throw a lemon slice in there, fill it up, and drink to your (skin’s) health in the new year!
Tony Sosnick, the grooming guru behind Anthony Logistics for Men, is coming to Washington, DC on Friday, November 16th to share his shaving expertise and give skin consultations at the Blue Mercury store in Dupont Circle. Although marketed to men, these products are just as effective on those of us with two X chromosomes.
There will be a cocktail party from 3-7pm where you can meet Tony and learn all about:
Grooming Gifts for the Holidays – With holiday season approaching, subtle ways the ladies can be a positive influence without offending.
How to Winter-ize Your Skin Routine – Tips on switching over everything from your moisturizer and general routine from the hot humidity of summer to the cold and dry days of winter.
5 Steps to the Perfect Shave – From the temperature of the water to the direction of your blade, what every guy needs to know.
Shaving Tips for Girls, from a Grooming Guru – Just because shorts and miniskirts have gone into hibernation doesn’t mean your razor should follow suit; Tony will share his expertise on the steps to get a super smooth shave.
The Dupont Circle Blue Mercury store is located at 1619 Connecticut Avenue NW. For more information about this event, call 202.462.1300.
You’ve been told time and time again – don’t sleep in your makeup. But we’ve all done it. I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve stumbled home from a long day at work (okay, okay…more like a long night at the club/bar) and passed out on my bed without removing my makeup.
But the truth is that sleeping in your makeup is a major beauty faux pas. Skin repairs and renews itself while you’re asleep, which is why it’s so important to wash off your makeup (as well as the daily dirt and grime that builds up on the skin) before your pretty head hits the pillow. Going to sleep with makeup on increases your odds of waking up with clogged pores, or worse – a pimple! Doesn’t it make sense to take 2 minutes to wash your face at night, rather than spend 2 or more days treating a blemish?
If you don’t trust yourself to be responsible, make it easy on yourself. Wear mineral makeup, like Bare Minerals or Sheer Cover. Or use makeup remover wipes; Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes dissolve all traces of dirt, oil, and make-up – even waterproof mascara – but are gentle enough for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive skin.
Having trouble falling asleep? Warm milk and counting sheep no longer cutting it? Believe it or not, the right beauty products could help you catch up on some much-needed beauty sleep.
