Nighttime Is The Right Time

sleepingcutie Nighttime Is The Right Time
While you sleep, your skin is hard at work repairing and renewing itself. Which is why it is so important to cleanse your face before your head hits the pillow. One more step you might want to consider is a night cream. According to experts, nighttime is the right time to hydrate and pamper your skin – because skin loses more water in the wee hours, and is also more receptive to active ingredients.

pcaskin rebalance Nighttime Is The Right TimeOne of my new favorites is PCA Skin ReBalance, a nourishing and soothing treatment that helps to repair reddened, irritated or traumatized skin. It’s so gentle that it’s also recommended following chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser resurfacing procedures. ReBalance is ideal for use on the face, neck and chest, and safe for all skin types and conditions, including rosacea.

Used regularly, your face will look fresher and more awake!

Kim Vo: Smilin’ And Hairstylin’

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities | 1 Comment

kim vo Kim Vo: Smilin And Hairstylin
I so enjoy when Kim Vo makes an appearance on The Daily 10 on E! He’s forever smiling, and always has some easy-to-follow hair care tips to share. Last night, Vo said the unthinkable. He insisted that women with fine hair should only wash their hair every 2-3 days; and thick-tressed ladies should go a week between shampoos. Quel horror!

He explained that shampooing strips the hair of its natural oils – which leads to dryness, damage, and one bad hair day followed by another. For fine, straight hair, the oils take a shorter time to travel from the scalp to the ends – which is why he recommends shampooing more frequently than those with thick hair.

julia Kim Vo: Smilin And HairstylinThink infrequent shampooing is nasty and unhygienic? Think again, because it’s the secret behind some of Hollywood’s hottest hair. Julia Roberts was once quoted as saying, “My hair doesn’t get greasy very fast, so I can go a good ten days without washing it.”

In between shampoos, Vo recommends two ways to get rid of the greasies. First, fine-haired females can lightly mist their hair with an aerosol spray; because the alcohol is a little drying, it will sop up some of the excess oil.

Starlet Kabuki Kim Vo: Smilin And HairstylinAnd all ladies, regardless of hair type, can benefit from a light application of face powder. Match the powder to your scalp…just part hair and apply with a kabuki brush (I heart this one by Starlet Cosmetics).

And when you do get around to washing your hair, shampoo twice. The first time removes build-up, while the second go-round actually cleanses the hair and scalp. When it comes time to condition, take a cue from your hair type. For fine hair, apply conditioner just on the ends – and for thick hair, apply all over.

Guerlain is aiming to boost its U.S. color cosmetics business with Le 2 de Guerlain, a $35 mascara featuring two brushes; it will launch here in March and globally in April. The high-tech formula is powered by space-age polymers and custom-designed brushes.

In the U.S., it will be available in about 300 specialty store doors and could do $3 million in sales in its first year on counter.

Team Fierce

I don’t post about Project Runway too often. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve got plenty of love for PR. I just fear that my beauty posts would be outnumbered. That’s how much I love the show.

rate runway 03 408 Team FierceLast night, the designers were placed in teams and told to create an avant-garde look based on their model’s hairstyle. Then – as if this challenge wasn’t already challenging enough – Tim ‘make it work’ Gunn appears half way though the episode, to announce that each duo must also create a ready-to-wear look that compliments the first design.

Well, genius that he is, Christian led “Team Fierce” to victory – by transforming 40 yards of organza into 8 feet of fabulosity! Nina was hella impressed; as the dress came down the catwalk, she couldn’t conceal her delight. This week, the star of the show was – hands down – Christian and Chris’ garment. But, not to be outdone, the Tresemme and L’Oreal folks turned it out!

Whose hair and makeup reigned on the runway? I have an opinion. Do you?prfierce Team Fierce
