PUBLISHER’S PICKS

Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara is the ultimate lash booster for bold and beautiful eyes. With its mega brush and collagen-infused formula, you can achieve up to 9 times the volume in just one coat, without any clumps or flakes. Maybelline Colossal Mascara is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to unleash their inner lash goddess.

EDITOR’S PICKS

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara Original is a fan favorite, and for good reason! The lengthening power in this formula is unmatched, and you can build the product for a more volumizing effect. Plus, for $13 at most drugstores, how can you go wrong?!

What the execs are raving about.

Chance by Chanel is a perfume that lets you create your own luck. It’s a whirlwind of floral and spicy notes that will sweep you into a fantasy of radiance and charm. Whether you choose the bold, delicate, energizing, or optimistic version, you’ll always have a chance to shine.

OGX Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream is probably the most moisturizing curl cream you can find in the drugstore. It also smells incredible. For us curly girls, use it when your hair is still damp, and your hair will dry with soft and smooth curls. Don’t forget gel!

La Roche-Posay Triple Repair Moisturizing Cream is clinically proven to reduce dryness and restore your skin’s protective barrier. It contains La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water, Shea Butter, Glycerin, and Niacinamide, which work together to replenish your skin’s essential lipids and provide 48-hour hydration.

The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane is the perfect product to try when you are starting your retinol journey. It’s gentle enough to be used daily, but can make a powerful difference in your skin. For me personally, I’ve already noticed a reduction in redness, inflammation, and new acne- and it’s only been a month!

TAILORING HAIR CARE ROUTINES TO YOUR HAIR TYPE

Your hair is as unique as you are, and understanding its individual needs is crucial for maintaining a healthy and vibrant mane. With various hair types ranging from straight and oily to dry and curly, a one-size-fits-all approach to hair care simply won’t cut it. Pick your hair type and review these tailored routines to keep your locks looking their best.

STRAIGHT HAIR:

Straight hair tends to be sleek and shiny but can be prone to oiliness. To maintain its luster without overburdening it with oils, use a gentle, volumizing shampoo and a lightweight conditioner. Avoid heavy styling products that can weigh down your strands and opt for occasional heat styling to add texture.

OILY HAIR:

If your hair tends to get greasy quickly, choose a clarifying shampoo to eliminate excess oil and build-up. Washing every other day can help regulate oil production. Condition only the tips to avoid adding unnecessary weight. Use a wide-toothed comb to prevent breakage and consider incorporating a dry shampoo on non-wash days to keep oil at bay.

DRY HAIR:

Dry hair craves moisture, so opt for a hydrating shampoo and a rich, deep-conditioning treatment. Avoid excessive heat styling, as it can further strip moisture from your strands. Invest in leave-in conditioners or oils to nourish your hair between washes. A weekly mask can provide an extra boost of hydration.

CURLY HAIR:

Curly hair is prone to frizz and can be challenging to manage. Use a sulfate-free, moisturizing shampoo and a thick, creamy conditioner. Finger-comb your hair in the shower to prevent breakage, and apply styling products while your hair is still damp. Consider using a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer to enhance your natural curls without causing frizz.

THIN HAIR:

Fine or thin hair benefits from volumizing products. Use a lightweight shampoo and conditioner that won’t weigh down your strands. Blow-dry your hair upside down to add volume, and choose styles that create the illusion of thickness, such as loose waves or layers.

THICK HAIR:

Thick hair requires extra hydration and moisture. Choose a nourishing shampoo and conditioner to keep your locks manageable. Regular trims can prevent excessive bulk and help maintain a healthy appearance. Embrace styles that work with your hair’s natural texture, such as braids or loose updos.

Tailoring your hair care routine to its specific needs ensures that your locks remain healthy, vibrant, and full of life. Experiment with different products and techniques to find what works best for you, and say goodbye to bad hair days forever!

BEAUTY SOS: Dry Scalp!

As the air grows colder and drier, many of us find ourselves battling an all-too-common winter woe: dry scalp. The combination of indoor heating, cold winds, and low humidity can leave our scalps feeling tight, itchy, and flaky. But let’s not be flaky all season long, shall we? We’ve rounded up the best tips and tricks to keep your scalp happy and healthy.

1. HYDRATE FROM WITHIN:

It may sound cliché, but staying hydrated is key to maintaining moisture levels in your scalp. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin—and scalp—hydrated from the inside out.

2. SWITCH TO A GENTLE SHAMPOO:

Harsh chemicals and sulfates can strip your scalp of its natural oils, exacerbating dry ness. Opt for a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo that won’t further irritate your scalp. Look for ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, or shea butter to help nourish and hydrate.

3. LIMIT HOT SHOWERS:

While a steamy shower may feel amazing on a cold day, hot water can really dehydrate your scalp and strip it of essential oils. Remember to use lukewarm water instead and try to keep your showers short to minimize moisture loss.

4. USE A HUMIDIFIER:

Indoor heating can zap the moisture from the air, leaving your scalp feeling parched. Invest in a humidifier to add moisture back into your home, helping to prevent dry scalp and soothe existing irritation.

5. MASSAGE WITH OIL:

Treat your scalp to a weekly massage with a nourishing oil like coconut, jojoba, or almond oil. Not only does this help to hydrate your scalp, but it also improves circulation and promotes healthy hair growth. Simply warm the oil between your hands, then massage it into your scalp using gentle, circular motions. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes (or overnight for an extra boost) before shampooing as

6. EXFOLIATE REGULARLY:

Just like the rest of your skin, your scalp can benefit from regular exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and product buildup. Use a gentle scalp scrub or brush to exfoliate once or twice a week, focusing on areas that are particularly dry or flaky.

7. PROTECT YOUR SCALP:

Don’t forget to shield your scalp from the elements when you’re out and about. Wearing a hat or scarf can help protect your scalp from cold winds and prevent moisture loss. This is also optional for those bad hair days, too! Two birds, one stone, right?!

We encourage you to try these simple but mighty tips! Incorporating them into your winter hair care routine will banish flakes and make your true hair beauty shine! Let’s enjoy a happy, hydrated, and healthy head all season long!

WHAT’S IN YOUR SKINCARE? Ingredients and What They Do For Our Skin

WE HAVE HEARD, TERMS

WHAT DO THEY MEAN?

Have you ever wondered what “hypoallergenic” really means? Well, “hypo” means under, beneath or less normal. “Allergenic” means causing or likely to cause an allergic reaction.

But is there any truth to this? One of the most common places we see this label is on cosmetics. In one word, NO! It can mean whatever a company wants it to mean.

The truth is there is no standard from the FDA that requires a cosmetic manufacturer to prove it is “hypoallergenic.” It is up to the manufacturer to set their own standard and use the term any way they want. Absolutely no testing or clinical studies are needed to validate their claim.

So next time you see a claim for “hypoallergenic,” just think to yourself: “I see that word a lot. I know it doesn’t mean what you want me to believe it means.”

Did you know this? CLINICAL or Pharmaceutical grade is the highest classification of skincare products you can purchase over the counter. CLINICAL or Pharmaceutical skincare is a regulated industry requiring 99.9% ingredient purity. CLINICAL grade products also undergo 8 weeks of rigorous testing to guarantee transformation.

But most skincare companies fall into the COSMETIC grade. These are the products you usually purchase in your Department Store, Drug Store and your Grocery Store. But what

does that mean? COSMETIC grade skincare is unregulated and loosely requires 70% purity with NO audits for compliance.

With such stringent requirements for clinical grade products, it’s no wonder that 95% of skin care products register as COSMETIC grade.

Then I hear, “Is it natural?” What does that mean? Usually it means the ingredients that are produced in nature (like water, a plant or even coconut oil). There are NO regulations and this term is used quite loosely. You see, just because the company claims it is natural, does not mean it is made only with natural ingredients, it just has to contain a natural ingredient. It also doesn’t mean that their product has been inspected, tested or certified in any way. In this case, you really don’t know what you are getting.

ALL the products that I share from RODAN+FIELDS are CLINICAL grade, and each regimen is based on the founding doctors’ Multi-Med Therapy approach, which means using the RIGHT INGREDIENTS in the RIGHT FORMULATIONS, and in the RIGHT ORDER to produce results.

For me, it is an easy decision. I only want the very best products on my skin. I choose to use only Clinical Grade skincare. Why? Because I am worth it!

AND UNDERTONE

LIP SERVICE THE BEST LIPSTICK SHADES FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

Nothing makes a statement quite like the perfect lipstick. Finding the right shade can enhance your natural beauty, boost your confidence, and add a touch of glam to any look. Today, we’re decoding the lipstick game, revealing the best shades

OLIVE AND NEUTRAL UNDERTONES:

Those with olive or neutral undertones can experiment with a diverse range of lipstick shades. Lucky you! Embrace versatility with mauves, rosy nudes, and dusty roses. Steer clear of overly cool or warm tones that may clash with your balanced undertones. Opt for shades like taupe, soft plum, or a nude with hints of pink to highlight your inherent radiance.

DEEP AND COOL/WARM UNDERTONES:

Deep complexions can carry off bold, statement-making lipstick shades. If you have cool undertones, deep plums, rich berries, and cool burgundies will complement your skin beautifully. For warm undertones, try warm browns, spicy reds, and deep oranges. Stand out with shades like mahogany, deep wine, or a sultry chocolate brown to make a stunning impact.

PRO TIPS FOR EVERY SKIN TONE:

UNDERTONE AWARENESS: Understanding your undertone is key. Cool undertones generally lean towards blues and pinks, while warm undertones have hints of yellows and oranges.

CONSIDER THE OCCASION: Daytime events may call for lighter shades, while evenings allow you to experiment with darker, more dramatic hues.

TEST BEFORE YOU INVEST: Don’t be afraid to sample a variety of shades before committing. Visit beauty counters to try different colors under natural light.

EXPERIMENT WITH TEXTURE: Matte, satin, gloss –each finish brings a unique vibe to your look. Try different textures to find what suits you best.

With these lipstick secrets in hand, get ready to conquer the world one perfect pout at a time. Your lips, your rules!

From acne to eczema, our skin is prone to various issues that can affect not just our appearance but also our confidence. It’s important to learn about these prevalent skin conditions, and the best- and most effective- strategies to combat them.

LET’S MAKE IT CLEAR

ACNE

Acne, the perennial nemesis of clear skin, often emerges due to hormonal fluctuations, stress, or genetics. Combatting acne involves a multifaceted approach. Incorporating a gentle cleanser, targeted spot treatments, and non-comedogenic moisturizers can help keep breakouts at bay. Additionally, adopting a skincare routine with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can assist in preventing and treating acne.

ROSACEA

Rosacea, characterized by persistent redness and visible blood vessels, can be a source of frustration. Opt for skincare products free of harsh chemicals and fragrances, as these can exacerbate symptoms. Embracing a gentle skincare routine with soothing ingredients like chamomile and aloe vera can help alleviate redness. Sunscreen is a must, as UV rays can trigger flare-ups, so choose a broad-spectrum SPF with at least SPF 30.

ECZEMA

Eczema, a chronic inflammatory condition, results in dry, itchy skin. To combat eczema, focus on moisturizing regularly with fragrance-free creams or ointments. Choose products containing ceramides and hyaluronic acid to strengthen the skin barrier. Steer clear of hot showers, and opt for mild, fragrance-free cleansers to avoid triggering flare-ups.

HYPERPIGMENTATION

Hyperpigmentation, caused by excess melanin production, leads to dark spots and uneven skin tone. Incorporate vitamin C serums into your routine to brighten skin and reduce dark spots. Sun protection is non-negotiable, so wear sunscreen daily to prevent further pigmentation. Chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and retinoids can also aid in promoting even skin tone.

PSORIASIS

Psoriasis, characterized by red, scaly patches, can be challenging to manage. Moisturization is key to alleviate dryness and reduce itching. Consider using products containing salicylic acid or coal tar to help soothe symptoms. Consult with a dermatologist to explore prescription treatments and lifestyle modifications that can aid in managing psoriasis flare-ups.

ACNE SCARS

Acne scars can linger long after blemishes have cleared. Incorporate skincare products with ingredients like retinol, vitamin C, and alpha hydroxy acids to promote skin renewal and reduce the appearance of scars. Professional treatments, such as laser therapy or chemical peels, can also accelerate the fading process. Consistency and patience are crucial when tackling acne scars, so stay committed to your skincare routine.

Tailoring your skincare routine to address specific concerns can pave the way for a luminous complexion. Embrace consistency, patience, and a holistic approach to skincare, and soon you’ll be reveling in the glow of healthy, beautiful skin.

WHAT’S IN YOUR

skincare?

Hexylresorcinol: Say hello to the dark spot warrior! Hexylresorcinol is a skin-brightening agent that targets hyperpigmentation, giving you an even-toned complexion.

Lactic Acid: It might sound like something from a dairy farm, but in skincare, it’s an exfoliating marvel. Lactic acid gently removes dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion without the irritation.

PICTURE THIS: you’re standing in front of your vanity, surrounded by an array of skincare products promising miracles in every drop. As you scrutinize the labels, staring at ingredient lists that read like a secret code, the question may arise: What’s really in my skincare? Let’s dive into your product’s ingredient list and figure out what each product is really doing for your skin.

Ferulic Acid: Don’t let the ‘acid’ scare you off. Ferulic acid is a potent antioxidant that teams up with other antioxidants (like Vitamins C and E) to provide your skin with a robust shield against free radicals, the villains of premature aging.

Ceramide NP: It might sound like a secret code, but it’s simply a type of lipid that your skin adores. Ceramides lock in moisture, fortify your skin’s natural barrier, and keep hydration levels in check.

Ubiquinone: The name might be tricky, but its purpose is straightforward – it’s Coenzyme Q10. This antioxidant helps energize and rejuvenate your skin, promoting a youthful and vibrant appearance.

Centella Asiatica Extract: Though the name might sound like an exotic destination, it’s just a powerhouse plant extract. Centella Asiatica is known for its soothing properties, making it perfect for calming irritated skin and reducing redness.

Copper Peptide: It may sound like something from a chemistry lab, but in skincare, it’s a collagen-boosting, skin-renewing maestro. Copper peptides promote elasticity and firmness, making your skin look plump and youthful.

Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG): This tongue-twister is a green tea extract with powerful antioxidant properties. It fights inflammation, protects against UV damage, and contributes to a healthier, radiant complexion.

Alpha Arbutin: A gentle giant in the skincare world, alpha arbutin is a skin-brightening agent that helps fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation, leaving you with a luminous, even skin tone.

Squalane: Pronounced “skwah-lane,” it’s a lightweight oil derived from olives. Squalane mimics the skin’s natural oils, providing intense hydration without clogging pores, leaving your skin soft and moisturized.

Tocopheryl Acetate: This mouthful is basically a form of Vitamin E. It’s a powerful antioxidant that helps protect your skin from environmental damage, leaving it looking fresh and youthful.

Ascorbic Acid: No, it’s not a secret code. It’s just Vitamin C! This ingredient brightens your skin, promotes collagen production, and is an all-around skincare superhero.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice: Aloe vera by any other name! This natural gem soothes and hydrates, making it perfect for calming irritated skin and providing a burst of refreshing moisture.

Glycolic Acid: It might sound like a chemical experiment, but it’s just an exfoliating genius. It sloughs off dead skin cells, revealing a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Panthenol: This one’s a moisture-locking wizard, often referred to as pro-vitamin B5. It hydrates and soothes, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.

So, the next time you encounter these seemingly cryptic names on your skincare labels, rest assured – they’re the undercover heroes working tirelessly to keep your skin radiant, youthful, and absolutely fabulous. Embrace the science, and let your skin reap the benefits!

IT’S NOT JUST A DESTINATION, IT IS AN EXPERIENCE.

In the heart of the dazzling city of Las Vegas, where glamour and glitz reign supreme, there’s a hidden gem that’s been making waves in the beauty industry. Here these professionals execute hair removal services with precision and a touch of finesse. The Bombshell team understands that waxing is an art, and they’ve mastered it, leaving clients feeling gorgeous and smooth. This haven of beauty is not just a place to get a wax (although with their proprietary technique and bespoke made waxes, it makes it a practically painless service); it’s an experience, a destination where self-care meets retro sophistication with modern values and a kitschy sense of style and humor.

BOMBSHELL IN LAS VEGAS

Bombshell was born from the vision of its founder, Melissa Black, who as a child in the 70’s would be let loose with her younger sister and a bag of dimes to try their luck in the arcade/ carnival inside the still standing Circus Circus. From an early age, Melissa was inspired by the spectacular hair, make-up, and fashion which that era provided.

Bombshell quickly expanded to 3 locations in Richmond, VA. Shortly after the second location was underway, Bombshell gained national recognition for being the place for Brazilian Waxing and beauty, and ultimately joined forces with Tony Hsieh and the DTP to bring Bombshell to Las Vegas, Nevada.

A WARM WELCOME AND FOND FAREWELL COMES STANDARD

The moment you step through the door, you’re greeted by a team of professionals that welcome you like royalty and a long-lost best friend.

TRUST YOUR GUT

We often find ourselves chasing the latest skincare trends and beauty products, forgetting that true radiance starts from within. If you’ve been grappling with unexplained skin issues, bloating, or low energy levels, it might be time to turn your attention to a lesser-known secret to beauty: your gut health.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH MY GUT?

Your gut is your powerhouse, responsible for not only digestion but also playing a crucial role in your overall well-being. When your gut is out of balance, it can manifest in various ways, affecting your skin, mood, and energy levels. Factors like stress, poor diet, antibiotics, and even lack of sleep can disrupt the delicate balance of bacteria in your gut, leading to issues like inflammation, bloating, and a compromised immune system.

SIGNS OF AN UNHEALTHY GUT:

• PERSISTENT BLOATING AND GAS

• SKIN ISSUES LIKE ACNE OR ECZEMA

• MOOD SWINGS AND ANXIETY

• FATIGUE AND LOW ENERGY LEVELS

• IRREGULAR BOWEL MOVEMENTS

Any of this sound familiar?

It may be time for a Gut Reset.

Trying to reset your gut doesn’t require a drastic overhaul of your lifestyle; instead, small, mindful changes can make a significant impact.

1Nourish with Whole Foods: Incorporate a variety of nutrient-dense, whole foods into your diet. Focus on fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. These foods provide the essential nutrients your gut needs to thrive.

2Embrace Probiotics: Introduce probiotics into your routine to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut. Yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi are excellent sources of probiotics that can contribute to a flourishing gut microbiome.

3Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: Adequate water intake is key to maintaining a healthy gut. Water helps flush out toxins and supports the digestive process. Aim for at least eight glasses a day.

4Manage Stress: Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your gut health. Incorporate stress-reducing activities like meditation, yoga, or a calming evening routine to keep stress levels in check.

5Sleep Well: Quality sleep is essential for overall well-being, including gut health. Aim for 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night to allow your body and gut to rejuvenate.

6Limit Processed Foods: Minimize your intake of processed and sugary foods, as they can negatively impact the diversity of your gut microbiome. Opt for whole, unprocessed options whenever possible.

While these seem like big changes, it’s important to take it one step at a time. You don’t need to do anything overnight. But being mindful of the habits that need changing will be a giant leap in the right direction! And remember, trust your gut!
