Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ Brighten and invigorate with light fizzing action.
Softens skin immediately Gently removes impurities
Stone Crop Cleansing Oil Instantly brighter complexion
Promotes natural oxygen ﬂow for a healthy glow
Oxygenating powder-to-foam action
Fizzo-what? This powder-to-foam exfoliant uses potent microgreens, rice flour and adzuki powder to give skin a gorgeous, youthful glow. The refreshing fizzing action delivers oxygen to the skin, stimulating its natural healing functions while stone crop brightens and rice flour with adzuki powder gently buffs and smoothes the surface. Skin is perfectly cleansed and gently exfoliated leaving it invigorated and softened.
This non-greasy cleansing oil uses the potency of microgreens to bring balance back to the skin. To restore moisture and remove impurities, we have paired sunflower and jojoba oil with brightening stone crop – resulting in dewy, soft skin after every use. Use alone, or as step one in a two-step cleansing process.
Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment Lightweight and great for all skin types, this gel cream treatment detoxifies and renews skin with the help of melt-in jojoba oil beads and nutrient-rich microgreens. Layer it after a favorite serum, and follow with a moisturizer if desired. Worn overnight, this treatment supercharges repair and regeneration while helping to prevent water loss for a dewy, radiant complexion. Use in the daytime for added detoxification and protection against environmental stressors.

It’s always exhilarating to get a new batch of our favorites, but it’s equally thrilling to see something new that we’ve never heard of. Then begins the serious business of testing. Locked in a room for weeks at a time, our editors carefully go through each selection, opening jars, spritzing and spraying, sniffing and smearing. An overwhelming cacophony of scents wafts down the halls. Interestingly enough, products that make it through the initial phase often get eliminated later after taking them home for the “road test,” while new products emerge as favorites. And I say it every year, and every year it holds true: Through this process, I find a host of new products I’m passionate about.

FROM AN OIL THAT REJUVENATES TIRED LEGS AND A LIP-PERFECTING SCRUB TO THE SECRET BEHIND SUNSPOTS, HERE’S WHAT’S COOL IN BEAUTY.
IS SUGAR THE REASON FOR YOUR SUNSPOTS? While speaking with celebrity aesthetician Susan Ciminelli, I learned a very interesting tidbit: Sugar can lead to sunspots during menopause. Ciminelli explained that because sugar throws off the function of the liver, which is necessary to help balance out hormones, spots are more likely to appear. “The more refined sugar and carbohydrates you eat, the worse your liver becomes. When it gets congested, it gets diagnosed as a fatty liver,” she says. Following a clean, sugar-free, macrobiotic diet can make a world of difference according to Ciminelli, who says that weaning yourself off of sugar can actually make your sunspots disappear over time.

Sisley Paris White Ginger Contouring Oil for Legs, $190, sisley-paris.com
I love a double-duty product just as much as the next girl. This one, from the masterminds behind the IGK salons in Miami, New York and Los Angeles, not only acts like an antioxidant-rich dry oil for your body, but it also adds a dose of shine, and hydration to your hair without leaving it feeling greasy or weighed down.
There’s nothing worse than applying lipstick, only to realize that your lips are dry and flaky, which is never a good look. With five scents and colors to choose from, these sugar-based lip scrubs make lips feel supersoft and perfectly preps them for whatever lip product you choose to apply afterward.
I was hooked on this gel-to-oil product as soon as I took one whiff of its intoxicatingly fresh gingery-lemon scent. But once I applied it, that was a whole other story. The blend of white ginger, rosemary and macadamia oil made my legs feel almost weightless and any aches disappear— it’s perfect after a long day of standing in heels.

It seems like some women will stop at nothing in the quest for the perfect body. For years, it’s been about—and it still is—enhancing the butt, breasts, stomach and legs, and now there’s a new and rather under-the-radar feature on the body that’s in demand for fixing: lower back dimples. Also known as Venus dimples, these tiny indentations at the bottom of the back are said to be an indicator of good health. While some women naturally have them, others don’t (and want them), and the fastest way to get them is with plastic surgery. Taking about an hour to perform, a cannula is inserted through a tiny incision in the lower back, and heat and energy are used to break up back fat, which is then suctioned out to create the dimpling. After a few weeks, the beginning stages of the dimples can be seen, which can take a few months to fully emerge.

Complicated beauty products aren’t always so great for sensitive skin, or life in general. These easy-to-use picks provide anything but basic benefits and make your routine so much better.

CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
Robert Singer, MD @SingerSurgical
WHY NEW ISN’T ALWAYS BETTER All of us are on a constant hunt for “new.” From our cars to our phones, it’s the buzzword that continually grabs our attention and almost automatically elevates a product’s status.
The words we use to describe new—shiny, fresh, better, advanced, different—sound good in theory, but who wants to be driving that “breakthrough” car that was only tested on the road for the first time the day before? Is it really safe to take that “groundbreaking” pill that only one other person took before you? And do you really want to inject something completely “age-reversing” into your face that never actually touched human skin before it was your turn? Obviously, no. The Need for a Healthy Balance Being stagnant isn’t ideal either; discoveries and innovations propel any society forward, but, in

“I dream of inventing a laser treatment for vitiligo, which is when people lose their normal skin pigment and experience patches of lighter skin. It can be disfiguring, embarrassing and incurable. Those who have this disease are also at risk for skin cancer. We have lasers to lighten skin, but nothing to darken it. This would help millions.”
many fields—particularly medicine, cosmetic surgery and beauty—there needs to be a middle ground. It’s not just unnecessary red tape or that someone wants to slow everything down; it’s because our safety and health are priorities.
When Innovation and Safety Meet What is that middle ground? It’s not that tricky. Time-tested options stay around for a reason: They have a track record of results and are proven to be safe. That’s not to say they are the only choices we will have forever—advancements are being made. New options, while they can ultimately, and hopefully, give those same solid results in a better way, need some time to get there. For starters, they need research, testing, vetting and safety data. For medical devices, it goes one step further to include clearance and approval.
SAFETY FIRST Taking precautions is one of the earliest lessons we were taught as children. The same rules apply to our cosmetic treatments.
Focus on the Here and Now
One day soon we will hopefully have that magical pill, product or injection that really can take 20 years off in an instant, but first, let’s make sure it works and is safe before we sing its praises.

Important Safety Information The Restylane family of products includes Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, and Restylane® Defyne. APPROVED USES Restylane® and Restylane-L® are for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® and Restylane-L® are also indicated for injection into the lips in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is for deep implantation into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and for cheek augmentation and for the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Silk is for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral wrinkles in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Refyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in patients over the age of 21. Restylane® Defyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in patients over the age of 21.
Are there any reasons why I should not use products within the Restylane® family? (Contraindications) To ensure a safe procedure, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. You should not use products within the Restylane family if: • You have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis) • You are allergic to lidocaine or to any of the gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid • You are prone to bleeding or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder Are there other precautions that I should discuss with my doctor? • Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or trying to become pregnant. The safety of these products for use during pregnancy, or in women who arebreastfeeding, has not been studied • Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are intended to treat facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane and Restylane-L are also intended for lip enhancement. Treatments in other areas of the face have not been evaluated in clinical studies • The safety and effectiveness of Restylane® Silk for areas other than the lips and perioral area
have not been evaluated in clinical studies • Tell your doctor if you have any history of scarring, particularly thick and stiff scars, or any pigmentation (skin color) disorders. These side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers in general • Tell your doctor if you are planning other laser treatments or a chemical peel, as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if these procedures are performed after treatment • Patients who experience skin injury near the site of injection with these products may be at a higher risk for side effects • Tell your doctor if you are on any medications to decrease your body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site • Tell your doctor if you are using any “blood thinners” such as aspirin, warfarin, or any other medications that affect bleeding. Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site • The use of these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete. Use of product in these areas could delay healing or make your skin problems worse What are the possible side effects? The most commonly observed side effects are
swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, and itching at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. To report a side effect with any of the Restylane products, please call Galderma Laboratories, L.P. at 1-855-425-8722. The Restylane family of products is available only through a licensed practitioner. Complete Instructions for Use are available at www. RestylaneUSA.com.

Symptoms can happen hours to weeks after injection and may include swallowing and breathing problems, loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, or loss of bladder control. Swallowing and breathing problems can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection.

The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inﬂammation, and nausea. Ask your doctor if Dysport is right for you. Please see Dysport Full Prescribing Information including Medication Guide at www.DysportUSA.com.

Brief Summary of Important Product Information DYSPORT® (abobotulinumtoxinA) for Injection What is Dysport? - Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. INFORMATION SUMMARY FOR DYSPORT WARNING: DISTANT SPREAD OF TOXIN EFFECT Postmarketing reports indicate that the effects of Dysport a n d all botulinum toxin products may spread from the area of injection to produce symptoms consistent with botulinum toxin effects. These may include asthenia, generalized muscle weakness, diplopia, blurred vision, ptosis, dysphagia, dysphonia, dysarthria, urinary incontinence and breathing difficulties. These symptoms have been reported hours to weeks after injection. Swallowing and breathing difficulties can be life threatening and there have been reports of death. The risk of symptoms is probably greatest in children treated for spasticity but symptoms can also occur in adults, particularly in those patients who have an underlying condition that would predispose them to these symptoms. WHEN SHOULD I NOT TAKE DYSPORT? Do not take Dysport if you: x Are allergic to Dysport or any of its ingredients (see the end of the Medication Guide for a list of ingredients) or have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc® or Botox®. x Are allergic to cow’s milk protein. x Have a skin infection at the planned injection site. x Are under the age of 18. x Are pregnant or breastfeeding.
WHAT ADDITIONAL WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT DYSPORT? x
The dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dose of any other botulinum toxin product you may have used. Tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, especially if you have a disease that affects muscles and nerves (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease], myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome), allergies to any botulinum toxin product or had any side effect from any botulinum toxin product in the past, a breathing problem (such as asthma or emphysema), swallowing problems, bleeding problems, diabetes, or a slow heart beat or other problem with your heart rate or rhythm, plans to have surgery, had surgery on your face, weakness of your forehead muscles (such as trouble raising your eyebrows), drooping eyelids, any other change in the way your face normally looks, or are pregnant or breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant or breastfeed.
Patients with swallowing or breathing difficulties or a disease that affects muscles and nerves may have a higher risk of serious side effects, including severe swallowing and breathing problems, after treatment with Dysport. Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins and herbal and other natural products. Using Dysport with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines while taking Dysport without talking to your doctor first. Especially tell your doctor if you: have received any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA), in the last four months or any in the past (be sure your doctor knows exactly which product you received, have recently received an antibiotic by injection, take muscle relaxants, take an allergy or cold medicine, or take a sleep medicine.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF DYSPORT? x
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.

THE ATKINS DIET 2.0
THE FAT-FUELED DIET
What it is: You may have
heard about the ketogenic diet, which consists of healthy fats, lean protein and a small amount of vegetable-based carbs to turn the body into a fat-burning furnace. Nutritionist David Morin says that if you follow the diet, your energy levels will be through the roof
and you’ll experience more mental clarity, less bloating and fewer headaches and cravings. “You can lose five to seven pounds in the first four to six days and then about a pound per week,” he adds. By manipulating fat, carbohydrates and protein, the body is forced to produce ketones, a source of energy, instead of glucose. “As long as 60–70 percent of your calories come from fats like cheese, uncured bacon, avocado and nuts; 20–30 percent from wild-caught or grass-fed protein; and 10 percent from raw, green vegetables, you’ll be satiated.”

It is ideal for those who want to feel energized without adding stress to their muscles and joints,” says spa manager Szilvia Sajtos. Using a stainless steel bike, riders pedal under water (the lower body is immersed in water). “When you exercise under water, you work against the water resistance,” explains Sajtos.

Gone are the days of using a treadmill or stair master for just walking, running and climbing. Now, it’s all about using these machines for a cardio blast and head-to-toe strengthening. Celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser of AKT says the technique doesn’t put much impact on the joints, but keeps the heart rate up. “Using a treadmill to do things like planks, jack knifes and mountain climbers forces you to build endurance, stamina and strength,” she adds. “I’ve seen clients who struggle with their weight begin to lose pounds they’ve never been able to shed.”

Fuel your body: What you feed your body and how

A N EW T O O L FOR BANISHING C E L LU L I T E
We all have fascia—the connective tissue that wraps around muscles to create muscle tone and fight cellulite—and we’re seeing a surge in tools that
hone in on rolling out fascia to make it smooth. As fascia expert Ashley Black explains, besides the fact that it can affect our posture, alignment and overall function, fascia also influences muscle output. “When fascia is tight, it can choke out the muscles and limit nerve signals and blood flow, which prohibits growth and performance,” she says. “Allowing it to lay
flat can help tackle cellulite at the root.” Instruments like her FasciaBlaster help restore fascia to its healthy state, allowing the body to function and communicate properly. “Although the FasciaBlaster has been popularized as a treatment for cellulite, the additional health and beauty benefits have gained the attention of those who suffer from ‘mystery’ pain and women who want to lose weight.”

NO RINSING NECESSARY
THE 24-HOUR MASK What it is: There are clay
masks, hydrating masks, sheet masks and overnight masks. And up until now, beauty masks were to be left on the skin for a designated period of time and then removed. However, all of that is about to change with the concept of masks that can be worn all day. Allies of Skin 1A All-Day Mask is a creamy mask that can be layered under sunscreen
and makeup on those days when your skin needs a little extra help. Despite the fact that the mask looks and feels like a moisturizer, don’t gloss over its power—think defense against aging environmental pollutants, a bevy of peptides to slow down the effects of aging, and antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to keep skin free of redness, stress and fatigue.

A NEW FORMULATION FOR A SKIN PICK-ME-UP

Everything you need to know: Being that our skin is
our largest organ, its health is of the utmost importance, especially if we want our skin to look good and feel good.
A N EW U S E F O R EG G S
The use of eggs—egg whites are a key ingredient for tightening and refining pores, as well as cleansing skin, too—in beauty products has been done before. And, while it sounds odd for this food
to be employed as an active ingredient, a new egg by-product is making its way into beauty products. Stemming from K-beauty trends that are blowing up overseas, according to Alicia Yoon of Peach & Lily, a Korean beauty e-tailer, egg oil (it’s totally different from egg extracts, a popular K-beauty ingredient) is destined to be the new “it” ingredient. “The egg oil is patented, as extracting
the potent oils from the nourishing egg yolk is a breakthrough innovation,” she says. “An egg oil– infused line is being launched by the brand Ariul, which will feature a serum-like oil and a cream.” Besides its ability to deliver intense moisturization to dry and dehydrated skin, Yoon says the oil also helps rejuvenate skin, boost radiance and give skin a plumper look.
Want to get even more out of your beauty products? Add a skin booster to your regimen. “We all need to take care of our concerns, but also require targeted treatments for specific issues like dull or congested skin. That’s where boosters come into play,” says Nassima Kebir, Clarins senior director of public relations. Ingredients like vitamin C, manuka oil, ginseng and more are being incorporated into concentrated formulations that contain nutrients your skin needs but may not be getting from your daily products. A few drops— we like Clarins Boosters and Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops—added to your favorite cream, serum or mask will do the trick.
I S T H I S T H E S EC R ET T O H E A LT H Y S K I N ?
One of the biggest scientific skin-care discoveries proves that a good balance of microbiomes (microorganisms on the skin) is necessary for a healthy complexion. “A lot of research stems from the notion of gut microbiomes, which is what made probiotics popular. We need balanced bacteria to be healthy and stave off gastrointestinal issues due
to bacterial imbalances,” explains Jasmina Aganovic, president of Mother Dirt, a probiotic skin-care brand. “When the ecosystem of the skin’s bacteria is thrown off balance, research shows it can leave it more prone to issues and sensitivities.” The next wave of probiotic and prebiotic products (like Mother Dirt AO+ Probiotic Mist and La Roche-Posay Toleriane) work to restore healthy bacteria levels instead of destabilizing the skin. Rather than incorporating enzymes from bacteria, probiotic-based products may now integrate live bacteria or microbiomes themselves, which could make for changes in shelf life, protocols and use.
SC I E N C E - B A S E D SKIN CARE
Skin-care products are always getting revamped with new ingredients. One you’ll be hearing more about: human exosomes. As Catherine Enright, CEO of eXO, an exosome-based skin-care line, explains, exosomes are naturally occurring particles of lipids and proteins that act like power couriers. “They assist from the top layer down to prevent the loss of natural moisturizing factors.” For skin hydration and anti-aging benefits like more luminous skin and increased cell renewal, eXO has coupled exosomes with noni oil, kombu and sea lettuce in its products.

trend. One unique look on each hand with a clash of colors and textures.
COLOR MEETS TEXTURE
What it is: The “party”
nail had its moment, and now it’s time for something new. Enter the split-style manicure, which is essentially one unique look on each hand with a clash of colors and textures that complement each other. One hand can be painted a soft color while the other is done in a bright or dark color. Or, one hand can have a glossy finish with intricate nail art while the other is matte with a
rough texture. Another trend that is going to be everywhere is nail contouring. “To do it, use contrasting colors and finishes,” says CND education ambassador Shelena Robinson. “The base layer should be a dark or nude matte polish followed by a contrasting color in a glossy finish. This will create the illusion of long, slender nail beds that look perfectly manicured.”

training, education and artistry director Rogelio Reyna, draping the face (it was big in the ‘70s) highlights its high points. To do it, use a dome-shaped brush to apply a soft, neutral-colored powder blush in circular motions. “Draping is a face-shaping technique that pulls a look together in just one step. The eyes are drawn to the high placement of the blush, which lifts all of your features upward.”
T H E N EW TA K E ON GLITTER
From a dusting of shimmer to full-on sparkle, glitter can be worn in every conceivable texture and color. Ashlee Glazer, beauty ambassador for Smith & Cult, says to pick one feature—lips or eyes (the lid, brow bone, lash line or tear duct)—to focus the glitter on. “If you want to pop glitter on the lid, dust a neutral shadow in the crease to contour the eye and pat glitter on the center of the lid with your finger,” she explains. “For a glittery pout, apply matte lipstick first and then press on glitter pigment with a brush. Mix glitter with clear gloss to create a tacky formula so it sticks. Keep the rest of the skin dewy or matte so the glitter can shine.”
T H E P E R SO N A L I Z E D M AKEUP EXPERIENCE

B LU E I S B AC K
Shimmer and shine: Bringing back a few old-school
looks, the world of makeup is currently all about loads of color, dimension and texture.
Neiman Marcus locations across the country, the brand is debuting its Memory Makeover
mirrors, which record a personalized, step-by-step video (it lives forever on the cloud) of a Le Métier de Beauté makeup artist applying your favorite products so you can recreate the look at home. Le Métier de Beauté CEO, Rich Blanch, explains that the concept was first executed in Neiman
Marcus changing rooms and has since been perfected for retail use. The Le Métier de Beauté app (it ties in with the Memory Mirror app) takes the frustration out of trying to replicate a look. “Customers can review the application, remember the steps and reconstruct it. Then, they can use the technology to make their own personal videos and share them on social media,” says Blanch.
A F R E S H WAY T O W E A R B LU S H
One of the newest ways to apply blush is called draping, which results in a less-dramatic look than contouring, but still gives a lifting, slimming and glowing effect. According to Cargo Cosmetics global
Blue eye shadow: it’s often considered the most taboo makeup color. For years, blue eye shadow was avoided for the mere fact that it screamed dated. Sir John, celebrity makeup artist for L’Oréal Paris, says blue makeup, which is making a comeback, brings a sense of serenity. “There are so many shades of blue and so many different forms, so you can really experiment with it. One of my favorite ways to rock blue on the eyes is with blue mascara. Or, take a more minimalistic approach with blue liner.” If you’re going to try the trend yourself, make sure you have a universally flattering shade of blue on hand—teal can work, too. “Avoid pairing blue eyes with a red lip, as this screams ’80s,” says John. “Instead, modernize it with a mauve-gray or pink color on the lips.”

Gather hair from the top and sides of the head, slightly twist together and pin in place at the back. Leave out two face-framing strands to add a delicate touch before finishing with a flexible hairspray to maintain the look’s cascading movement.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK
Apply a texturizing product, like Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse, to towel-dried hair to prep locks to hold the perfect shape. Next, blow-dry hair with a boar-bristle round brush to create sleek, smooth strands and prevent frizz. $28, moroccanoil.com
Create a deep side-part and apply a small amount of strong-hold gel to smooth down baby hairs and add shine. Then fasten hair into a low bun at the nape of the neck with an elastic band. Leave out a piece of one-inch-thick hair to braid.
With the loose hair, create a tight fishtail braid (practice makes perfect with this technique) and wrap it around the bun to conceal the band. Tuck any loose ends from the braid underneath and finish with hairspray to secure strands and add shine.

“This look is all about perfectly hydrated, warm, glowing skin that isn’t necessarily shimmery,” says celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes. “Matte bronzer, neutral eye shadow and a peachy-nude color on her lips show off her natural beauty.”
“Natural, dewy-looking skin lets the focus be on her eyes,” says celebrity makeup artist Chauntal Lewis. “She wanted a bold, green smoky eye, so I applied shadow to her lids and smudged it out under her lash line for a glamorous, but not over the top, look.”
Going for a more dramatic look, Barnes paired a rich smoky eye and crisp eyeliner with a cool cheek and lip. “The smokiness both above and below her top and bottom lash lines gave an intense smoldering effect, which made her blue eyes pop,” he says.

Every time our hair goes through a growth cycle, it comes back in a little bit thinner. —DR. WESLEY
HOW CAN I MAKE MY THINNING BROWS LOOK THICKER? NO ONE WANTS THIN EYEBROWS, BUT GETTING THEM TO GROW IN THICK AND DARK CAN BE A BATTLE. written by Tatiana Bido
ager. But, full, well-groomed eyebrows can frame your face and make you look years younger. Getting brows that look perfect can be difficult if yours are sparse due to overplucking, an underlying medical issue or the aging process. “Our hairs (even those in our eyebrows) are programmed to go through cycles throughout our lifetime,” says New York hair restoration specialist Carlos K. Wesley, MD. “Every time our hair goes through a growth cycle, it comes back in a little bit thinner. Sometimes the color fades, too.” Luckily, you don’t have to settle for patchy brows. These fixes can help you achieve the look you want.

If the cause is a medical condition, a brow stencil can create a more uniform look. According to Washington, D.C. dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, if your eyebrow hair is falling out, it may be a symptom of an underlying disorder. “Thinning brows can be a sign of a condition like eczema, alopecia or an underactive thyroid, all of which can cause you to lose your hair.” An easy way to transform thin, out-of-shape brows is with a stencil kit, like Eylure Brow Stencils, which includes four different arch shapes to help you define and fill in sparse brows. $6, eylure.com
If the cause is overplucking, revive sparse areas with a brow serum.
If the cause is a poor diet, thicken existing hairs with a fiber gel.
If the cause is age-related, try microblading for a long-lasting fix.
If the cause is genetic, eyebrow restoration can boost hair growth.
Overplucking is a common grooming mistake, but it’s also one of the biggest reasons for hair loss in the eyebrows. “Eventually, the plucked hair grows back in, but after a while, the growth rate shortens a bit with each cycle,” says Dr. Wesley. “The areas that have been overplucked come back shorter and thinner, leading to long-term thinning.” Try a brow serum like BrowFood Phyto-Medic Eyebrow Enhancer, which contains powerful organic herb extracts that activate the brow follicle for thicker brows. $88, sephora.com
A diet lacking in vitamins A, B, D or E, or an iron deficiency, can be the culprit for your sparse eyebrows. In addition to adopting a well-balanced diet, a key step to getting fuller brows is to thicken the individual hairs. For a quick fix, fake better brows in an instant with Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel, which contains tiny microfibers (you can’t see them when the product is on) that adhere to your natural hair to mimic the look of better brows. $24,
As you age, you may notice a change in the density of your brows. Although the hairs may still be growing, they may appear thin and faded in color. A technique called microblading uses fine, hair-like strokes to deposit semipermanent pigment into the skin. “Microblading is the most natural-looking way to make your eyebrows look like they have more hair,” says brow expert Nadia Afanaseva of Eye Design New York. “You can create any shape or arch you want, and your new brows can last anywhere from one to three years.”
Hereditary hair loss can shorten the time that hair spends growing, causing the follicles to shrink. An eyebrow transplant permanently restores growing hair by using healthy follicles from a donor site on your scalp and transplanting them to an area where brow hair is weak. “On this patient (above), I removed hair from the scalp and placed individual hairs into incisions made in the brow,” says Philadelphia hair restoration specialist Thomas Griffin, MD. “Once the grafts heal, it grows like normal hair.”

CAN SKIN THAT’S ALWAYS RED EVER BE FIXED? Whether your skin is red due to acne, sunburn, rosacea, or something else, getting the red out can be a tricky thing to treat. Although there have been major advancements in skin-care products and in-office treatments, can skin that’s consistently red ever really be fixed? We take a closer look.
Redness and inflammation resulting from cold weather, wind/sunburn and any condition that causes microbreaks in the skin (acne, keratosis pilaris and eczema) are generally situational and usually treatable. For starters, try using a skin-care product that contains calming ingredients like licorice or white tea—look for one with “anti-redness” in the name. “For long-term relief, in-office laser and light-based treatments can help,” says Nashville, TN, dermatologist Michael Gold, MD. “With today’s advanced pulsed-dye lasers and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), getting rid of these types of redness is fairly easy, but you may need more than one treatment to see results.”
The Bottom Line: If your redness pops up out of nowhere,
like from acne, it can typically be managed with topical products like anti-redness creams and masked with concealer. If it’s rosacea, you may be able to control the redness, but you won’t be able to get rid of it forever.
TRAVIS RATHBONE/TRUNK ARCHIVE
If the redness is systematic and caused by rosacea, which affects more than 14 million people in the United States alone, there is no “cure” to get rid of it. Despite the fact that red, inflamed flare-ups—usually brought on by triggers like spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine and stress—can be somewhat managed, they never fully go away. “While rosacea is a chronic condition, some forms of rosacea (papular/ pustular), can be controlled (but not eliminated) with oral medication such as a tetracycline derivative,” says Houston dermatologist Suneel Chilukuri, MD. “However, if medication is not continued or treatments are not maintained, the papules and pustules, as well as accompanying redness, will recur rapidly.” Unfortunately, there is no one treatment that can permanently get rid of it.

If you have oily skin, you don’t have to worry about dehydration. According to Coral Gables, FL, dermatologist Dr. Janice Lima Maribona, the fact that you have oily skin doesn’t mean you can’t experience dehydration or even surface dryness. “One problem has nothing to do with the other. Hydration of the skin is very important to replenish water back
The sun can help. The sun has the ability to dry things out, so by default, it should do the same for oily skin, right? Dr. Schlessinger says, “Not only is this completely false, but it’s also dangerous. No amount of sun exposure is good for skin. The sun may give your skin a drier feel temporarily, but your skin will, again, see this as dehydration and produce more oil pretty quickly to make up for it.” MYTH
SHOULD OILY SKIN SKIP MOISTURIZER? If you have oily skin, you know all about T-zone troubles, shiny spots and an automatic aversion to any product that isn’t matte. It’s a common battle, but one that most people tackle incorrectly. into the skin—that goes for any person, any skin type,” she says. Plus, as Dr. Lima Maribona points out, people wrongly assume that oiliness only happens when you’re younger or experiencing acne. “You can actually get oiler as you age because your skin is dehydrated,” she explains. “Having dehydrated skin is an instant way to look older because it almost always accentuates the look of lines and wrinkles.”
74 / N E W B E A U T Y / Spring • Summer 2017 / newbeauty.com
THE BIGGEST MYTH!
Oily skin should skip moisturizer. People with oily skin often assume they don’t need to use a moisturizer. “Every skin type can benefit from a moisturizer in their daily routine. It may seem counterintuitive, but oily skin types need moisturizer both day and night in order
for their complexions to stay healthy and balanced,” Dr. Schlessinger says. So what’s best to use? Dr. Lima Maribona recommends any type of moisturizer (gel, cream, etc.), as long as it’s water-based and oilfree. “I also like bisabolol, an oil extracted from chamomile that works as a skin-conditioning agent and has anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It also reduces dryness and makes skin feel soft.”
And so can skipping sunscreen. Dr. Schlessinger says that many oily-skin sufferers believe sunscreen is too heavy for their skin. “With new advancements in skin-care formulas, there really is a sunscreen for every skin type. Everyone should be applying one every single day, rain or shine,” he adds. “Those with oily skin should look for a sunscreen that is lightweight and oil-free with mattifying properties, so there’s no excess shine. If you can’t find a formula or texture you like, keep looking. Remember, the best sunscreen for your skin type is the one you’ll actually wear every day.”
If you overcleanse, you can cut back on oil. One common mistake that oily skin types tend to make is overcleansing to strip the skin of its natural oils. “There are many misconceptions when it comes to dealing with oily skin,” says Omaha, NE, dermatologist Joel Schlessinger, MD. “Your skin is most likely oily because it’s dehydrated. Skin overcompensates for dehydration by producing more oil.” Still doesn’t make sense? Consider this: “Doing something like overcleansing can actually cause an overproduction of oil. This increase in oil production can lead to even more shine, not to mention clogged pores and breakouts.”

AN INSIDE LOOK:
WHAT REALLY HAPPENS WHEN
YOU GET A MOMMY MAKEOVER? MOTHERHOOD MAY BE REWARDING, BUT WHEN YOU NEED TO “RESET,” CONSIDER THIS OPTION.
For some, pregnancy can change the body in such a way that surgery is the only thing that will get it closer to its pre-baby form. Ever since the Mommy Makeover (it typically consists of a tummy tuck, breast surgery and liposuction) became popular, more and more women are opting for its transformative effects. Here’s what you need to know about this combination surgery.

truth. HOW TO GET YOUR BODY BACK
IF YOUR BODY HAS CHANGED AS A RESULT OF BEING PREGNANT, IT MAY BE TIME TO THINK ABOUT A MOMMY MAKEOVER.
A BETTER BUTT WITH FAT GONE ARE THE DAYS OF THROWING AWAY FAT THAT IS REMOVED FROM THE BODY.
“Removing fat from one area of the body and putting it to good use in another area is one of the greatest trends in plastic surgery right now,” says Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Andrew Ordon, MD. “The Mommy Makeover started off with doctors doing just the breasts and stomach. But as things have progressed in the surgery world, we can now take some of the fat that’s being removed and add it to the butt for a bit of a pop. Or, we can use it in the face to restore lost volume.” Unlike a Brazilian Butt Lift, which uses large amounts of fat, a Mommy Makeover generally uses smaller amounts in the upper butt for added projection. “This technique can really enhance the overall makeover,” adds Dr. Ordon.
YOUR BREASTS AND STOMACH WILL BE OPERATED ON.
THERE WILL BE A SCAR FROM HIP TO HIP AND SOME ON YOUR BREASTS.
YOU NEED TO TAKE TIME OFF TO RECOVER.
One side effect of pregnancy is how it can change the body, causing some to experience a loss of fullness in the breasts, loose skin, extra fat, and stretched-out stomach muscles. “Pregnancy can cause saggy breasts, as well as loose skin and stretch marks on the abdomen,” says Newton Centre, MA, plastic surgeon Joseph Russo, MD. “To correct the breasts, a breast augmentation (and a lift, if needed) should be done.” Whereas a tummy tuck hones in on loose skin and stretched-out muscles that create a bulge in the lower belly, breast surgery restores breast shape, size and fullness. Not everyone needs implants—some women only require a lift (with or without implants) to restore their breasts.
If you delivered your child via C-section, your plastic surgeon can improve the scar with a tummy tuck. “We can fix the quality and placement of the scar,” says Dr. Ordon. If your skin is scar-free, expect a long, low incision from hipbone to hipbone and potentially a scar around your belly button. Wayzata, MN, plastic surgeon John Allan Ness, MD, adds, “When skin is pulled down, stretch marks around and above the belly button shift down.” When it comes to the breasts, scars are hidden in the crease of the breast or around the areola—with lifts, scars can run down the front of the breast. To minimize scarring, try a topical product like Mederma Advanced Scar Gel.
Unlike other plastic surgery procedures that command only a few days of downtime, a Mommy Makeover requires a decent amount of time off so that you can fully recuperate. “I tell patients they’ll be back on their feet in a few weeks. But there should be no heavy lifting or intense exercising for three months,” says Joliet, IL, plastic surgeon Alan Chen, MD. Although you may feel good soon after surgery, full healing (you can’t always see or feel it) can take four to six months. “The body needs to heal with rest, proper nutrition and diminished stress. Any healing techniques you want to use must be discussed with your doctor,” says Miami plastic surgeon Sean Simon, MD.
THE PAIN FACTOR
THIS IS ONE OPTION THAT INVOLVES MULTIPLE PROCEDURES. HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD PREPARE FOR POST-SURGERY.
The thought of having to recover from two or more surgeries and the discomfort that could come along with them would probably make many women think twice about committing to a Mommy Makeover. “The bigger the surgery, the more discomfort,” says Dr. Russo. Many patients say that compared to a C-section, the pain associated with a tummy tuck is less. “I’ve discussed the pain factor with patients and the tummy tuck is always compared favorably and with less discomfort,” says Dr. Simon. “It’s more of a tight sensation and muscle soreness.” For those who have never undergone breast surgery, Dr. Ness says, “Many women say that after surgery their breasts feel tight and compare it to how it felt when their milk came in after pregnancy. The hardness and tightness can persist for up to a month, but after two months, most women forget how it felt.”
WHY YOU SHOULDN’T GET PREGNANT AGAIN AFTERWARD Almost every doctor will tell you to make sure you don’t have plans to get pregnant again. “Having another child after plastic surgery will likely reverse your investment. Your skin can stretch, sagging can return and stretch marks can form,” says Dr. Russo. You may need the procedure done again or a revision surgery to correct any changes that come along in the future.

YOUR BREA ST S MAY BE BIGGER AND SIT HIGH FOR A BIT.
IF YOU HAVE WEIGHT TO L OSE, IT WON’ T DO MUCH FOR YOU.
As with any type of surgery, it takes time for the muscles, skin and tissues to settle and for everything to take its final form. “The breasts, whether an implant was used or not, may look larger than expected and sit higher on the chest immediately after surgery due to muscle spasms and skin tightness. If either of those effects happen, they will relax over time and the breasts will soften out eventually,” says Dr. Russo. Also, the breasts are swollen post-surgery, which contributes to the bigger look. Just remember that within a few months, the breasts will settle and drop at least a few millimeters or more.
In order to fully reap the benefits of a Mommy Makeover, you need to be at a stable weight. Dr. Ness points out that the procedure is not one for weight-loss, which can be a disappointment for those who expect to shed pounds. “You have to be at the right weight to get the benefit of the procedure,” he says. “You might lose a few pounds if you have liposuction, but it’s not like we can take out 15 to 20 pounds of fat.” Staying at a healthy weight helps to optimize the final outcome. “Assessment by a surgeon is needed to determine whether or not a patient is a good candidate for the surgery, not just based on weight, but on physical examination as well,” explains Dr. Simon.
THE DOCTOR’S PERSPECTIVE
”Patients that come in looking to make over their body typically sit down for a consultation after they’ve given birth or have had several pregnancies. They feel that no matter what they do, their skin is loose, their abdomen is stretched out, there’s extra fat in their hips and outer thighs and their breasts aren’t as full as they once were, and nothing bounces back,” says Houston plastic surgeon German Newall, MD. “They know that no amount of exercising and dieting will change it. Nowadays, there are so many tools we can use to improve the body post-pregnancy, like the Mommy Makeover. In years past, restoring a woman’s body was all about sucking out fat, but today it’s about sculpting the body. We do this often in the buttocks and the hip area. So, we don’t always follow the ‘bigger is better’ theory when it comes to the breasts with a Mommy Makeover. The breasts should match the curves of the rest of the body, and making the breasts too big can cause the body to look top-heavy. It’s more about creating a body that looks harmonious and natural and making a woman feel good about herself again.” BEFORE
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
MANY PATIENTS ASK HOW LONG THEY HAVE TO WAIT TO HAVE THE SURGERY AFTER HAVING A BABY. HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW. “I always say that you want to make sure you’re done breast-feeding and that you’ve given your breasts a few months to return to their regular state. Many women maintain breast volume while breast-feeding, so we need them to be at their regular, deflated size to make an accurate assessment,” Dr. Ness says. The same goes for the tummy tuck part of the surgery. On average, six months after delivery is normally a safe time to wait before considering a Mommy Makeover.
A B R A N D - N E W B O DY
Dr. Newall gave this 37-year-old patient a more feminine figure by performing liposuction on her back, hips and outer and inner thighs. Fat was added to her butt for a rounder appearance. A tummy tuck removed extra skin and tightened her muscles while a breast augmentation restored lost volume.

WHY DO MY CUTICLES CRACK AND PEEL AFTER A MANICURE? The goal of regular manicures is to maintain healthy nails and skin. Although your nails may look pristine, cracked cuticles and peeling skin can leave you with an unsightly problem. This why it happens and what to do about it.
You’re Harming Your Skin at Home While peeling cuticles and skin may coincide with visits to the nail salon, the damage may be due to everyday habits. “For women with sensitive skin, several factors can lead to this problem,” says Fresh Meadows, NY, dermatologist Kally Papantoniou, MD. “Washing dishes, cleaning without gloves on, exposure to chemicals and not moisturizing your hands can dry out skin, leading to frayed cuticles and ragged skin.”
The Manicure Itself Is the Culprit Valencia, CA, dermatologist Bernard Raskin, MD, says the skin around your nails may peel after a manicure because it’s been exposed to chemicals and irritants. “It’s usually because the skin is too dry, but you could also be allergic to glues or acetone removers. Manicurists also soak instruments in antibacterial solutions, which can be irritating to skin.” Cutting the cuticles can make them hard, causing them to crack, too.
then I would say to use acetone-free nail polish removers because they are less harsh on your skin,” says Dr. Papantoniou. “To limit exposure to chemicals altogether, try a gentle, nontoxic nail polish that is free of potentially harmful ingredients like camphor, ethyl, formaldehyde resin, tosylamide, toluene and xylene. If you have sensitive skin, let your manicurist know so he or she can avoid trimming or pushing your cuticles back.”

Lay Off the Chemicals Acetone is a very powerful solvent that also happens to be the most effective method of removing polish. But, it can strip the natural oils from your skin. “Taking a break from your regular manicures for one to two weeks may help stop the peeling for a while. If holding off from the nail salon is not a possibility,
Dry skin can be a sign that you need to increase your intake of essential fatty acids and/or vitamins A and E. “A daily multivitamin, biotin, and even fish oil, can help promote healthy skin around your nails,” adds Dr. Papantoniou. In addition to a healthy diet, staying away from harsh chemicals and using gentle cleansers on your hands, make sure to avoid aggressive buffing, filing and cuticle trimming and pushing. “All of these efforts will be reflected in the health of your skin and nails, as well as your overall well-being.”

CRAZY BEAUTY QUESTION
To heal chapped, broken skin around your nails and cuticles, keep your cuticles and the surrounding skin moisturized with a good cuticle oil or hand cream. “Applying a cuticle cream or oil after hydrating your hands is a great way to promote healthier skin and cuticles,” says Dr. Raskin. “I also suggest applying Vaseline over the area (and wearing gloves) before bedtime for a deep, overnight treatment. This can be done a few days before a manicure, but is better for your skin when it’s done a few times per week on a regular basis.”

JAMES WOJCIK/TRUNK ARCHIVE
“The transforming texture—it’s taken from skin-care cleansing balms—is unique and fun. Palm oils penetrate the hair shaft, making the hair a bit more hydrophobic (repels water), which is a good thing. I would recommend it for those with dry hair because those types tend to absorb water quickly, then lose it just as fast.”

The Magnetic Mask
— “This is good for the skin-care ‘junkie’ who already has all the basics of a good skin-care regimen and likes to try out new and different products with a ‘wow’ factor. The magnetic lifting of the mask off of the skin makes skin feel clean—it definitely makes for an interesting experience.” –Dr. Tina Alster, dermatologist

I M AG I N E G R O W I N G U P under the same roof as not one, but two mega-superstar musicians. In some ways, you would assume the children of country music royalty to have a pretty unconventional upbringing. But just like in every other household with teenagers, Gracie McGraw did some things right under her parents’ noses that they weren’t necessarily totally aware of while she was still living at home.

On family, frizzy hair and why turning 50 really doesn’t faze her. DIET DO “I don’t diet, but I do try to eat good foods. I’m lucky because I’m one of those people who actually loves kale. Growing up, my parents had a garden and we would pick things straight off the vine, so I’ve always been a fan of ‘raw’ foods.”
Her biggest feat is so impressive it should go down in the high school hall of fame: forming a band in the basement. “It was right under our noses! Right under our roof!” her mom says. “We had no idea.” The difference between Gracie and every other teenager in the world starting their own band: Her parents are none other than country music icons Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. “She taught herself to play the guitar. The band even booked some performances,” Faith says, quick to point out that all three of her teenage daughters, Gracie, Maggie and Audrey can sing. “They surprise us so much already. I can’t even guess who is going to do what.”

G L A M -S Q UA D S EC R E T “I work with great people! My hair is almost always in a ponytail. It’s naturally very curly and it literally looks like a mop most of the time. It’s the kind of hair that ‘grows’ when you go outside. It can look OK when I leave the house and then two hours later, it’s four times the size and frizzy. I’m really not great with my hair; I’ve actually come to embrace the fact that I am bad with it. I can’t even blow-dry it. It turns into a disaster.”

FAC I A L F I X “I usually only do a facial before a big event and then I always think, ‘This looks great! Why don’t I do this more often?’ I’m one of those people who sort of gets impatient while getting one, but it would be nice if I would make the time to do them more often.”
DAT E LO O K “A big date for us is actually an afternoon movie. I’ll wear a sundress, some mascara and a red lip, which is kind of new for me. I was always a nude lip person, but one day I tried red and loved it.”
M I N I M A L I ST M OV E S “I like beauty products, but I am comfortable leaving the house without makeup on. I’m all about moisturizer, some cover-up, some mascara and go.”
“Being in nature is important to me. Not only important—it’s necessary. I love being outside. It really helps keep my mind ‘clear.’”
While she may not be able to predict the future, Faith admits it’s incredibly hard for her to give advice on a career that, besides being an integral force in her entire family’s life, has been a part of her DNA since she was seven years old and first hit the stage singing in Mississippi. “Tim and I know what it takes to really do this for a living, but as a parent, you don’t want to stand in the way of their dreams. It’s been one of the most difficult things for me as a mom—especially as a mom of all girls. You want to protect them; you want to make sure they aren’t disappointed. I’m certain all parents would say that about their kids, but there is a point you have to remember, ‘I was 19 once, and I remember the passion and the drive I had, and I just have to let them go and do it.’ Sometimes, it’s better to let your children go through things on their own and let them experience it instead of saying, ‘Don’t do it this way, or you must do it this way.’” One thing that is non-negotiable: work ethic. “It is very important to us as a family, and the girls have seen that. The one thing we stress is that you don’t get things handed to you on a silver platter—you have to work for the things you want. They know it takes hard work. You don’t just arrive.” ON THE ROAD AGAIN But arrived Faith has. Since her first album debuted in 1993, she has won five Grammy Awards, 12 Academy of Country Music Awards and four American Music Awards, among others. She also has the very impressive stat of selling more than 30 million albums worldwide, making her undeniably one of the most successful country artists of all time (not to mention, she’s held some not-so-minor side gigs as an actress and activist, and rumor has it she’s executive producing a talk show). Next up: the 70-city, Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017, which starts in April and will reunite Faith and Tim on stage. “Our last tour was in 2007, so it’s been 10 years, which I cannot believe,” she says, adding that the actual touring isn’t the hard part—it’s the preparation, which she likens to the toughest workout ever, notched up 100 levels. “There’s so much preparation and it’s very intense because of the schedule. There’s lots of moving around, lots of flying in and out of cities on the same day, lots of being away from home, and no matter who you are, it takes a lot out of you. It really takes a toll. The show alone is so physically challenging because there’s a lot involved, and then you’re singing on top of it; I cannot imagine how it would be if I also danced. I want to stay healthy during the tour and the biggest part of that is what I do before the tour.”

While Faith says she can’t reveal too many details about what they have planned, she can share this: “Tim and I have done a couple of tours together like this, so we are very cognizant of the fact that our fans have seen us at different stages and we want to give them something completely different than what they’ve seen before. I can’t give up too much, but it’s going to be awesome and we are so excited.”

COUPLE COLLABORATION One of the biggest pluses of being on tour again: hitting the stage with her husband and longtime collaborator. Tim and Faith have made it a mission throughout their 20-year marriage to never be apart for more than three days in a row, and it’s clear to everyone who sees them together how solid their relationship is. (He even surprised her for this cover shoot, telling her throughout how great she looked and having her lean on his shoulder to help navigate the studio in her heels, as she was hesitant to walk in them because of a recent foot surgery.)
HAIR HELPER “My hair is naturally curly. I always say that my hair was meant to live near the ocean. It looks its best when it’s by the water.”
P RO D U CT P I C K “I love La Mer The Renewal Oil; I use it sparingly at night. When I’m traveling, I’ll do a little bit of the oil, then a thick cream or mask on top.”
B E AU T Y A DV I C E “I used to be awful about drinking water, but with all the flying and traveling, you quickly see how important it is. It doesn’t just help with the hydration of the skin, it makes everything run. Water works! It’s a miracle product. It’s gold. That’s my biggest piece of beauty advice: water, water, water!”
2/27/17 4:26 PM
ON FACING 50 When it comes to the subject of beauty, and aging in general (she’ll turn 50 this September), Faith says it’s something she tries not to give much thought to. “I honestly don’t pay attention to it. If I did, my girls would notice and I don’t want that. It’s not a message I want them to have. The secret is being confident—with your age, with yourself. Life is so precious. We only have one; what’s the point of stressing about all of that? Each decade has been different. Each day is a blessing. That’s how I want to look at it.” One thing Faith does stress in the anti-aging game: having a realistic take on beauty, which she thinks is so important in this digital age. “Social media can be so cruel, but we’ve always emphasized the importance of having a realistic take and a healthy view regarding beauty to our girls. They know it’s not just on the outside. It’s really important to us to teach them that beauty is on the inside. People can see your heart by the expressions on your face and the way you carry yourself—they can see your happiness.”
S K I N - CA R E S O LU T I O N “I’ve been using Retin-A for about 10 years and it really works for me. I wish I started using it at 25! It makes a world of difference.”
ST Y L E STA P L E “It’s sometimes painfully fun and entertaining to go back and look at the dresses, the hair and the makeup I’ve chosen to wear over the years—it’s pretty rough stuff. The thing I’ve learned more than anything is to be comfortable and stay true to what I like. My favorite thing to wear is black. A nice tight black sweater and a good pair of jeans—I’ve had some jeans for 10 years—is always good. Less is definitely more. I’ve learned not to follow trends; it just doesn’t work for me.”
DRESS: BLUMARINE; EARRINGS: HER OWN; BRACELET: EF COLLECTION; RINGS: EFFY, DANA REBECCA DESIGNS AND CATBIRD;
“We spoil Tim. He’s the only guy in the house, so the girls and I love to watch football with him and try to be the sons he never had. But, he would not trade his girls for anything in the world. He loves all the attention.” Like Faith, Tim has been in full-on prep mode for the tour during the last few months— with a little bit of being a beauty guinea pig on the side. “It’s very important to him to work out and stay strong and healthy. There have been times in his life when he didn’t take care of himself at all, so focusing on being healthy is a big part of his life. I think we both realize how much harder it is as you get older. You just realize how important it is simply to exercise and get a good night’s sleep. It’s not that complicated, but somehow, it never seems that easy.” Faith also says that their day-to-day life is rather low-key. “We are not the most exciting people in the world. We don’t stay out late and we don’t really go to parties—we are usually in bed by 9 p.m. For us, the rest just builds energy so we have the energy to do all the things we need to do.” One task Tim needs his energy reserves for: standing in for some of Faith’s skin-care testing. “He likes moisturizers because I’m so into moisturizer. Every time I try something new, I say, ‘Here, let me test it on you first.’ He has beautiful skin.”
S I M P L E RO U T I N E “It’s important to take care of your skin and follow a solid routine. Moisturizing is key, but my skin breaks out when I use too many products. Too much kind of ‘messes it up.’ You don’t have to use 10 or more products; you can be conservative. It’s all about what works for you.”

“There are so many women who have handled aging gracefully. Audrey Hepburn is someone I’ve always looked to and admired. Lauren Hutton is amazingly beautiful. Anyone who is still physically active as they age is inspiring to me.”
Despite her beauty-is-on-the-inside approach to raising her daughters, they are just as beauty-obsessed as most other teenage girls. “It’s funny because all three of them are into makeup. Gracie can do great brows and perfect eyeliner. My girls have a better beauty regimen than I do. I don’t know where they get it from. I look like a clown when I do eyeliner!” “I’ve tried so many trends that looked terrible! So many. Early in my career, I really had some bad ones. I did the high-school perm—why would I do that? I already have curly hair! And I used to wear tons of makeup, like that ’80s caked-on makeup. It’s the reason I rarely wear it now unless I absolutely have to.” Which works out perfectly because she says Tim’s favorite look on her is “just natural.” “He likes when I have no makeup on and crazy-curly hair. Before I put it up in a ponytail, he always tells me to wear it down because it’s his favorite.” “But I really do swear by the fact that if you are happy and if you spread that happiness, you skin will be rosy, your smile will be bigger, your eyes will be brighter—no matter what decade you are in; no matter what stage of life you are in. It’s what I strive for. Take care of yourself; take care of your soul.” “I’m OK with having lines. I’m almost 50; I want people to know I’ve smiled a lot.”

So how does it work? “A stylist diagnoses your hair with a careful eye (a camera tool is available in select salons) to determine your strands’ main concerns. Then, a custom-blended treatment that is specific to your hair type and texture will be prescribed,” says Dale Moriarty, education manager for Kérastase. “The treatment makes use of both a booster and a concentrate, which penetrate each hair fiber using nanotechnology. This means processing time is only five minutes and hair is transformed almost instantly.” There are 20 different treatments to address every concern, including dryness, damage, frizz, overprocessed or color-treated hair, and lack of volume to make hair healthier and more manageable.

If you’re going for a dramatic color change (think dark brown to platinum), a salon treatment, like amika Virgin, can protect your locks from major damage. Administered by a stylist during a chemical treatment such as bleaching, coloring or straightening, the two-part system protects hair by working to build and repair hair bonds that are weakened from triggers that include heat styling, sun exposure and harsh dyes. “First, a liquid solution called Virgin Protect is mixed into the chemical service. Then, Virgin Lock, a rinse-out treatment, is used after shampooing and before conditioning,” says amika color specialist Avery Wells. “The length of your appointment won’t be any longer than normal when using Virgin, and the results— softer, smoother hair with less frizz and breakage—are immediate.” Although it’s popular for use during color services, it is also offered as a standalone treatment for hair that needs a little extra TLC.

Irritated, inflamed scalps can lead to greasy hair, dandruff, itching and dullness. The René Furterer ASTERA Fresh salon treatment can help get the situation under control (you can also purchase the products to do it yourself at home). “It’s specially formulated with echinacea, mint and eucalyptus to reduce inflammation and deeply cleanse irritated scalps,” says Chuck Hezekiah, national educator for René Furterer. “Its healing benefits reduce itchiness and leave the scalp feeling calm, comforted and healthy.” First, a soothing fluid is applied to a dry, unwashed scalp in sections. “Next, a scalp massage helps to microstimulate blood flow to the scalp and exfoliate scaly skin,” adds Hezekiah. This is followed by shampooing with the ASTERA Soothing Freshness Shampoo, which you can also use at home to maintain results.

“You don’t necessarily notice good results, but you do notice P O O R O N E S .” —Dr. Singer
In a world where it’s totally normal and accepted to start injecting Botox Cosmetic at a young age, have a facelift before the age of 50 and get a breast augmentation just because you want one, there’s a fairly common thread that’s trailing among aesthetic and anti-aging procedures: not to look fake. Gone are the days of plastic surgery that looks “done.” Today, it’s all about looking like a more refreshed and better version of yourself and not like a walking billboard for plastic surgery. Good surgery is never obvious and should keep everyone guessing whether you had something done or you’re genetically blessed.

plastic I S N O T fantast i WHEN
There’s a recent shift away from the unnatural look—a pulled-too-tight face, eyebrows that sit high on the face and overtly large breasts—and toward a soft and natural one. “The aesthetic that people look for changes and is always influenced by pop culture. Right now it’s about looking like you haven’t had anything done,” says San Jose, CA, plastic surgeon Kamakshi R. Zeidler, MD.
Before there were noninvasive skin tighteners, injectables and fillers, and volume restoration techniques, it was commonplace to see women who had plastic surgery boasting the telltale signs of it and looking like a plastic version of themselves. “In the past, plastic surgery was more recognizable and obvious,” says El Paso, TX, plastic surgeon Frank Agullo, MD. “Silicone breast implants were big and round, and facial work could leave you looking like the Cheshire cat.” Most facial plastic surgery was about taking away the excess, regardless of whether it was on the nose, face or eyes. Options were limited. For example, when it came to breast implants, Dr. Zeidler says the only option was saline implants, which often gave a very round and hard look, especially if they were overfilled.
La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, says surgery is now about adding to areas where there is a deficiency and taking away from those where there is excess. There has been a change in aesthetic ideals, and the techniques and tools that surgeons have at their disposal have improved, giving way to better results. “Breast augmentation patients now have other types of implants to choose from that give more natural-looking fullness that’s still sexy,” says Dr. Zeidler. Complementary procedures are usually done to make the most of a surgical procedure and achieve a natural look. For example, it’s rare to have a facelift without having some sort of volume replacement done, too, be it fat or fillers.
F O R T H E M O ST PA RT,
plastic surgery patients undergo aesthetic treatments to improve their appearance. As New York facial plastic surgeon Joshua Rosenberg, MD, points out, women who opt to have plastic surgery (and pretty much any other type of age-intervening treatment) want to look good. “One thing my patients tend to say is, ‘I want to look natural and not like I had surgery.’ Women will go to extreme lengths to ensure they get that result,” he says.
‘I want to look natural and not like I had surgery.’ But, there are some patients who feel that because they are paying a pretty penny for a procedure, their results should be very noticeable and on display for everyone to see. New York plastic surgeon Scott Newman, MD, says that while he sees many patients who “want to look better and not different,” he also sees patients who specifically say they like the “fake look” and want it. “The latter is true more so for breast surgery where patients are asking for a round look toward the top of their breasts, which is certainly not natural-looking,” he adds. While some women like a more “done” look, it’s usually because of personal preference, it’s all they know or have ever seen, or it’s what is accepted in their culture. Most women want to look natural and refined—bad results are obvious and good work goes under the radar.

are quick fixes for erasing lines and wrinkles, restoring lost volume, and augmenting thin lips, under-eye hollows, flat cheeks and weak chins. But when too much product is injected or the wrong one is used in the wrong area, you can go from looking like you’ve been subtly injected to looking like you have a gallon of product in your face. “When too much filler is used, it looks excessive. If filler is injected when there is a fair amount of sagging and a facelift is necessary, you can look doughy and unnatural,” says Dr. Singer.
MUSTS FOR A NATURAL LOOK
Don’t want to end up looking artificial or like a doctored version of yourself? Then it’s important to recognize which factors can make your face look uncharacteristic so you know what to ask your doctor for in terms of results.
There are plenty of women who sport skin that’s pulled too taut. When just the skin is tightened—fat, muscles or tissues aren’t addressed—the face can appear unnaturally tight and shiny. Dr. Zeidler adds that when a facelift isn’t done right, the mouth may look wide and the earlobes pulled down. A bad facelift coupled with excessively done lasers can cause skin to look thin and white, too.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Don’t have just your skin tightened. If this occurs, not only will your results be short-lived, but your face can also look unnatural and even distorted.
says Dr. Rosenberg. “In the past, facelifts were about lifting and tightening skin. Now, they’re about restoring volume, too, to create a natural look.”
Add back volume if you need it. “There’s a big focus on maintaining or retaining volume. As the face ages, that volume disappears,”
Don’t neglect your neck. If your neck isn’t paid attention to—and there is loose skin or extra fat—the results of a facelift can become amplified.
Subtle enhancement is key. Almost any doctor will tell you that the secret to good work is looking like you had nothing done. That holds true to injectables and fillers, too. Post-injection, your features shouldn’t be hard, overinflated or swollen.
Don’t do too much at once. Dr. Newman says it’s best to split injections up into multiple visits and use small amounts of product each time. “This makes an overfilled result almost impossible.” Dr. Agullo follows a similar theory and starts with one syringe of product and then reevaluates a week or two later so that too much product doesn’t end up being used.
Lafayette, LA, facial plastic surgeon Ryan P. Chastant, MD, performed an upper blepharoplasty and a natural-looking facelift to correct signs of aging.
You can always undo what’s been done. In the event you don’t like the result of your hyaluronic acid fillers, your doctor can inject the area with hyaluronidase, which acts like an antidote to reverse the effects of what’s been injected.

Why you need to pick the best doctor possible
“Symmetry, large eyes, full lips and narrow noses are said to enhance femininity. But when we deviate from this, results are not optimal.”
You should only allow a board-certified plastic or facial plastic surgeon to perform surgery on your face and body, and make sure you select someone who really knows what they are doing. If not, a lot could go wrong including scarring, disfigurement and potentially death.
1. Find a surgeon who has experience and the right training. You’d be shocked to learn how many people go to nonboard-certified doctors who haven’t received the proper training. “Many of the horror stories we hear are about non-plastic surgeons operating on patients, which is why it is so important to seek care from a plastic surgeon who is board-certified with ample experience,” says Dr. Agullo.
THE NEWEST NATURAL-LOOKING FILLERS TO KNOW ABOUT Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne received FDA-approval to help soften “laugh lines” and achieve a natural look. What’s different is that these fillers are created using XpresHAn Technology, which allows the product to move naturally through a range of facial expressions.
2. Select a doctor you can properly communicate with.

2 A SCOOPED-OUT NOSE WITH A MANUFACTURED -LOOKING TIP
ANNA DABROWSKA/THE LICENSING PROJECT
In the past, it was common for rhinoplasty patients to end up with a nose that was scooped-out (hence the name of a ski slope nose) with a pinched tip. “Any time you see that profile and tip on a person, you can guarantee they’ve had work done on their nose,” says Dr. Singer. Most nose job patients don’t want their noses to look done. They want to streamline any humps and bumps for a more flattering profile that better fits their face, minus a pinched, pointy tip.
When it comes to surgery, the eyes need to be treated delicately, otherwise they can change the look of your face. “The eyes can look hollow if too much fat is taken out,” says Dr. Singer. The brows shouldn’t sit too high up on the face or give off a surprised look either. “You want to avoid that overelevated brow, which can make you look like a deer in headlights.” Although a browlift itself won’t cause the eyes to look hollowed-out, the procedure, if overdone, can scoot the brows up too high and give a permanently surprised look. “The cornerstone of plastic surgery is to produce results that are natural, balanced and well-proportioned without anyone knowing that a procedure has been performed,” says Laguna Woods, CA, facial plastic surgeon Cory Yeh, MD.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW It’s about customization. No two noses are the same, and what works on one nose may not be the best solution for another. A cartilage graft may be used. The amount of cartilage, the tip and the
internal structure of the nose all need to be accounted for so that the areas that have to be taken down or built up can be done the right way. Cartilage grafts help secure a more natural end result, too.
Too much fat shouldn’t be removed. For the eyes to retain their appearance and not end up too round, deep or tight, the amount of fat taken out needs to be carefully determined. Fat doesn’t need to be completely eliminated; most times it just requires repositioning. If there is a
deficit of volume, adding fat can produce a youthful appearance. Treat the skin. The skin surrounding the eyes needs to be treated, too, with skin care, a laser or fillers and injectables to smooth out age spots and tackle lines, wrinkles and crepey skin.
One of the most valuable tools between a surgeon and a patient is good communication. “This helps determine what the patient is or isn’t looking for,” says Dr. Agullo. “Looking at a doctor’s photo gallery for potential results is helpful, too.”
3. Your surgeon should know what will and won’t work for you. As Dr. Singer explains, it’s just as important to find the right doctor as it is to find the right surgery for you. “Not everyone can have the same procedure done and expect great results. It really needs to be individualized to what you need. That’s one of the real advancements in beauty today—this concept of customization to get the best result possible.”

body what to avoid
B O LT E D - O N BREASTS
To fix her unnaturallooking breasts (a non-plastic surgeon performed the first surgery), Las Vegas plastic surgeon Michael Edwards, MD, replaced her implants with round silicone implants and moved them below the muscle.
Proportion is key in achieving breasts that look natural. Anything that’s too big for your body will make you look top-heavy and fake. “The breasts can look ‘done’ when they are very round or oversized for the body,” says Dr. Agullo. Real breasts have a natural slope to them, aren’t too round or too hard, and don’t sit too high up on the chest, which are all signs of a breast augmentation. If an augmentation is done when a lift is what’s really needed, Dr. Zeidler says the implants can end up hanging over the sides of the breasts. “Everyone, for the most part, is all about more natural-looking breasts right now,” adds Dr. Singer. Some patients, however, do want that overly filled look.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Pick the right implant for your body type. If you don’t want it to be evident that you weren’t born with the exact breasts you’re sporting, then you’ll want to make sure you discuss implant shape, projection, profile, texture, size, and amount of volume with your plastic surgeon. Look at sizers (implants you can put in your bra to get an idea of how your breasts will look after surgery) and try them on to get a good idea of what you like. Take into account the width of your chest. The width of your chest is important because the wider the chest, the less projection needed. “If you want to avoid looking top-heavy (and experiencing potential problems
in the future), you need to choose an implant that is the right width for your breast size,” says Dr. Agullo. It’s a good idea to have your doctor show you what your new breasts will look like after surgery using 3-D technology. Dr. Newman says, “Volume changes in breast surgery are a common issue that patients can have a difficult time understanding. Seeing breast changes in 3-D gives them a better idea of different implant volumes and how they may change their body proportions. This type of advanced technology helps improve that conversation.”

2 A SHELF BUTT
To create a more youthful, natural-looking contour, Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, used the fat obtained through liposuction on the flanks and inner thighs for transfer to the buttocks.
WHY ELASTIC SKIN IS SO IMPORTANT Almost every plastic surgeon will tell you that one of the most important factors for good results post-surgery is how elastic your skin is. “Skin elasticity is key for good results, especially for procedures like liposuction in areas like the stomach and face,” says Dr. Zeidler. “Nothing really tightens the skin, even with all the technologies out there. And if the skin is naturally loose, a procedure like liposuction isn’t going to change it and can actually make the skin worse— sometimes it can even make it hang more.” If skin isn’t able to snap back into place, it won’t be able to handle the effects of liposuction and you may be left with loose, droopy skin. Patients with poor skin tone and laxity benefit from removing the excess skin.
The number of women who opt for butt augmentations (using fat, known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, or with an implant) continues to be on the rise. “We are seeing an increase in people with overly done butts,” says Dr. Singer. “What may look good on a celebrity doesn’t usually look natural on most people.” In some cases, the dimensions of the butt can be disproportionate to the lower body, making the body appear bottom-heavy, or worse yet, a butt that resembles a shelf and lacks shape. Not preserving the natural curvature of the butt and making it too big is a dead giveaway that it’s been operated on. “Although some people get their buttocks done because they like a bigger look, if too much fat is at the top of the buttocks, it can look like a shelf,” says Dr. Zeidler. To make sure you don’t end up with a look you don’t want, discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon and show him or her some inspiration photos.
round and balanced aesthetic,” adds Dr. Zeidler.
While many patients get good results, this is a procedure that may have complications. Fat needs to be injected in just the right spots. In order to keep your feminine shape while enhancing your backside, Dr. Zeidler says that fat needs to be strategically transplanted to the buttocks, as well as the hips, to balance it out. A little bit of lipo can make a huge difference. “Liposuctioning the lower back gives way to a soft,
Only FDA-approved products should be used. It’s important that only fat or FDA-approved products, like Sculptra Aesthetic (injected offlabel to add volume to the butt), are used. (Dr. Singer points out this is still a controversial procedure.) Silicone and industrialgrade automotive and household products aren’t designed to be injected into the butt no matter what—the only thing you’ll be left with is problems.
3 UNEVEN, RIPPLED SKIN FROM LIPOSUCTION Not to be confused with cellulite, postliposuction skin that’s wavy in nature—think uneven skin with lots of big indentations, dimples and ripples—is a telltale sign you’ve had surgery. It tends to happen most when liposuction is done too aggressively or when too large of a cannula is used. Also, liposuction is not intended to be used as a weight-loss method, and if the skin is not elastic and able to snap back into place, it’s more likely that asymmetries will result.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Too much fat shouldn’t be removed. To prevent this type of rippled skin from happening in the first place, your doctor should remove just the right amount of fat so that the end result isn’t a lumpy one—the lumpiness is also due in part to unevenness in the tissue behind the fat.
Your skin needs to be thick and elastic. One of the most important factors to consider is the quality of your skin and how elastic it is—if it’s thin and stretched out, it’s more likely that irregularities will result than if your skin is thick and elastic.
ONE SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL “It’s not just what is removed, but also what is left that C R E AT E S A G O O D C O S M E T I C R E S U LT.” —Dr. Singer

“ONE OF THE BEST TRICKS I TELL MY PATIENTS TO DO IS CHANGE THEIR HAIRSTYLE AND COLOR A FEW DAYS BEFORE SURGERY AND NOT LET ANYONE SEE IT. AFTER SURGERY, EVERYONE WILL ASSUME THAT THE HAIR, NOT THE SURGERY, IS WHAT’S MAKING THEM LOOK YOUNGER.” —COLLEYVILLE,

“I have my patients bring in pictures of themselves from 10 years ago, which lets me assess the features that are unique to their face and what I would not change (even though they may be asking for a change). I discuss the importance of nasolabial folds (lines from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth) because some people are born with deep lines and I try not to fill them in completely because they add character and personality. Once those lines are lost, it can give the appearance of looking plastic.” —NEW

PRESERVE THE FAT “Performing surgery on the eyes can look unnatural when it’s not done properly. If a patient has naturally full eyelids, that volume needs to be preserved—only excess volume that has developed should be removed. I pay very close attention to the position and symmetry of the eyelid crease, as well as the amount of fat and skin that needs to be removed, as this creates a refreshed and more natural look.” —WESTFIELD,

SKIN CARE 101 If you don’t already take good care of your skin, now is the time to start. Any procedure will yield better and more natural-looking results when done on skin that is tended to properly versus skin that isn’t.
ONE PROCEDURE CAN’T FIX EVERYTHING
“We have all seen facelifts that look unnatural and odd, giving plastic surgery a bad name. In order to get a natural-looking result, volume, skin laxity and texture need to be taken into consideration. As we age, volume diminishes, skin laxity increases and skin texture changes. To achieve a harmonious and natural look, each facet needs to be addressed—one technique cannot be relied upon to accomplish it all. To restore volume, I use fat or fillers; to address laxity, a facelift is done; and to improve the texture of skin, a C02 laser gives good results. By using these modalities conservatively, natural results can be achieved, which will have everyone thinking you look great without knowing what you’ve had done.”
MIX IN NONINVASIVE OPTIONS
FOLLOW YOUR DOCTOR’S ORDERS “I ALWAYS STRESS THAT PATIENTS FOLLOW ALL THE GUIDELINES THEY ARE GIVEN FOR RECOVERY AND NOT TRY TO PUSH THEMSELVES TO DO TOO MUCH OVER AND ABOVE WHAT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED. GIVING YOUR BODY THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF TIME TO RECOVER LEADS TO A MORE NATURAL HEALING PROCESS. CREATING NATURAL-LOOKING RESULTS IS MY END GOAL.”
“I guide patients toward procedures that will give the enhancement and/or rejuvenation they desire, but with a natural look. With the advent of lasers, fillers and neuromodulators, facial rejuvenation can now be done noninvasively. These fillers can be used in combination to treat multiple areas and create a ‘wow’ result that is still natural.”

Not only is the neck likely to lose elasticity with age, but Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Leslie H. Stevens, MD, says there can also be pigment changes, fat pockets and deep creases on the front of the neck. Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin, can be used off-label to relax the muscles in the neck and soften the bands. “As skin becomes lax, nonsurgical radio-frequency treatments and Ultherapy, can be used, but the results are limited,” explains Dr. Stevens. “When nonsurgical procedures don’t cut it, surgery to tighten the bands under the chin, or a necklift to remove excess skin from behind the ears, are needed.”

HIGH DEFINITION According to Charlotte, NC, dermatologist Gilly Munavalli, MD, there are many reasons why jowls develop. “Primarily, it’s because of soft tissue (fat) descent to the lower face, which is due to a relaxation of the fat compartments in the upper and midface, coupled with resorption of bone in the jawline and perioral area.” When definition is lost along the jawline and jowls become prominent, the area can look “weak” and the chin will look pronounced, like it’s protruding. “Starting with dermal fillers, like Radiesse or Juvéderm Voluma, in the pre-jowl area sooner rather than later will help restore lost volume and reestablish the jawline contour.” But, not every patient requires filler to correct their jowls. “If skin laxity with pronounced sagging obscure the contours of the jawline, an energy-based device, like the INFINI, can contract the skin to make a noticeable difference,” says Dr. Munavalli.

FIRM SKIN FOREVER It’s a fact of life that your skin isn’t going to look the same in your 50s as it did in your 20s. “The most common changes we see are a loss of volume (fat) and elastin (responsible for keeping skin taut) coupled with overused muscles, which results in wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, on the forehead and between the brows,” says New York plastic surgeon Maria LoTempio, MD. The best way to age-proof your skin is by wearing sunscreen daily, following a good skin-care regimen and keeping your skin hydrated. When a course of action needs to be put into place, Dr. LoTempio suggests a mix-and-match approach of lasers and microdermabrasion to correct discoloration; neuromodulators to reduce wrinkles; fillers and/or fat grafting to increase volume and promote collagen for tighter skin; and a facelift (when needed) to permanently correct signs of aging.

You may not think of your chin as an area that succumbs to aging, but it does. “With aging, soft tissue and facial bones lose volume. There’s also a loss of elasticity in the skin,” says Chicago plastic surgeon Michael Horn, MD. “When this happens, the chin crease can become deeper, pebble-like wrinkling can occur and the chin can become more pointed.” When the chin appears weak, it can also make the nose seem larger than it really is. “I always tell patients that it’s important to keep their weight consistent because rapid weight loss or gain can age the area,” adds Dr. Horn. In the event that a procedure needs to be done, there are several options. Hyaluronic acid fillers can increase projection and fill in lines, Botox Cosmetic can correct pebbling in the chin, and surgery can offer permanent correction. “To improve an aging chin, an implant can help make a dramatic difference.”

Make sure both your upper and lower lips are enhanced to prevent any disharmony.
The lips aren’t immune to aging, and once the aging process sets in, your once full lips can become thin and wrinkled. “The positioning of the lips on the face makes them susceptible to damaging UV rays from the sun,” says Miami plastic surgeon Daniel Careaga, MD. “As bone mass is lost in the face, the lips can begin to appear droopy.” Take care of your lips with hydrating lip balms and avoid the sun and smoking to preserve the look of youthful lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane Silk and Juvéderm can also be injected into the lips to give them a plumper look and enhance their overall shape. Dr. Careaga adds, “Botox Cosmetic can also be used to relax the muscles that can pull down on the corners of the lips.” If you opt for fillers, Dr. Careaga recommends making sure both your upper and lower lips are enhanced to prevent any disharmony between the two.

Commonly called the building blocks of protein, in a nutshell, amino acids are compounds that are an essential component in the skin renewal process that do much more for our skin, body and hair (as well as our muscles, bones, ligaments and organs) than most of us realize. Think of amino acids like the boxcars of a train that, when put together in a proper sequence, form a cargo train with the entire train being protein. “A large portion of our epidermal cells is made of protein,” says Beverly Hills, CA, dermatologist Rhonda Rand, MD. “Collagen is the main protein of the skin, and keratin is the fibrous protein that forms the main structure of hair and nails.” Made mostly in the liver, amino acids are crucial nutrients that the body makes into larger molecules that serve a specific purpose for healthy healing of skin tissue, muscles, bones, and hair; they also help with collagen production. “The skin renews itself and constantly heals itself from all the damage it incurs, so it always needs new building blocks, aka amino acids, to continually repair itself,” adds Dr. Rand.

“Amino acids are critical for both healthy skin and a healthy body,” says Greenbrae, CA, plastic surgeon Kimberly Henry, MD. “They promote collagen production, fat burning and a healthy pH balance, increase hydration, reduce the effects of aging and keep the hair and nails healthy.” Without them, skin lacks nutrition and its tone and texture become rough and dull. Because amino acids naturally diminish with age, it’s IMPORTANT TO FEED THE BODY WITH THEM ON A DAILY BASIS so that it can
remain in a constant state of repair and replenishment.
A DECREASE IN COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Collagen is the foundation of healthy skin that keeps it plump, firm and supple. But, with age, the amount of collagen in the skin starts to diminish. According to New York dermatologist Dennis Gross, MD, a select arrangement of specific amino acids is what makes the protein that creates collagen. “Amino acids lead to collagen stimulation, so THE MORE YOU FEED SKIN WITH AMINO ACIDS, THE MORE COLLAGEN WILL BE PRODUCED .” No matter
whether the amino acids used are synthetic or plant-, food- or botanical-based, the end result is the same. “Lab-derived amino acids can be better than an extract because when you have a fruit or vegetable as the source, it’s removed from this soup-like concentration of nutrients, whereas a synthetic one is a pure amino acid,” says Dr. Gross.

Although the body makes plenty of amino acids itself (20 to be exact), it also needs essential amino acids, which are not inherent and must be obtained through food or supplements, according to San Francisco dermatologist Vic Narurkar, MD. “These eight essential amino acids further assist in the stimulation of collagen and elastin production and other functions of the skin and body,” says Dr. Narurkar. Even if just one is missing, the body can’t repair itself and create new proteins. “One amino acid cannot be substituted for another, and the human body is incapable of manufacturing essential amino acids on its own,” adds Dr. Henry.

INCREASED BODY FAT
Although collagen and elastin contain amino acids, you’ll need to source the majority of them from outside of your body to reap the benefits. “Your body does not have a protein reserve like it does for fat or carbohydrates, so ideally you need to make sure you get these essential amino acids on a daily basis,” says Toni McKinnon, director of science information at USANA Health Science. ALL TYPES OF PROTEIN, INCLUDING MEATS, NUTS, BEANS AND LENTILS, AS WELL AS DAIRY PRODUCTS, CONTAIN AMINO ACIDS
so you can almost always count on these foods to fuel your body with the essentials.
We know that amino acids are found in our food and our body, but does putting them on our skin do anything at all? “They absolutely do,” says Dr. Gross. “Amino acids are very small molecules and can be easily delivered into skin. Because they are so tiny, they are also easy to produce.” While we’re not discounting the importance of eating a healthy diet that supplies the body with essential amino acids, Dr. Gross explains that the topical use of them is a much more potent way of providing the body with amino acids for beauty purposes. “When you have a protein source that is ingested as a whole and then broken up into amino acids by the body, the amino acids are digested and the molecules get released into the blood stream,” he adds. “With food products, you won’t get the maximum concentration of the important amino acids skin needs. But with topical products, the doses are more effective and there is a targeted supply of the specific amino acids that work to create collagen.”

SKIN Topical amino acids are a means by which you can feed the skin with the building blocks of what it needs to look better and healthier and improve its function. In addition to creating new collagen and staving off signs of aging, Dr. Narurkar says there may be some subtle antioxidant properties in some of these topical amino acids, which are beneficial, too. While many amino acids work to stimulate collagen in the skin, others are used to tackle issues like textural changes, breakouts and unbalanced pH levels.
For Healthy Skin What to look for: Hydroxyproline What it does: A modified version of proline, hydroxyproline works to create new collagen in the skin. According to Dr. Gross, hydroxyproline is one of the most effective amino acids when it comes to producing collagen. Find it in: Shiseido Benefiance Concentrated Neck Contour Treatment, $52.50, shiseido.com
The Damage Defender What to look for: Glutamine What it does: This amino acid helps the body form phospholipids (a part of the cell membrane). Without it, there’s little protection against oxidative stress and inflammation. It also aids in collagen production, replaces lost moisture and increases skin elasticity.
The Collagen Creator What to look for: Collagen amino acids What they do: One of the most effective ways to coerce the skin into making new collagen is by using a product with collagen amino acids. “I use collagen complexes in many of my formulations because it is protein-based and feeds the skin with what it needs for new and healthy collagen,” says Dr. Gross.

It also activates the anagen phase (growing stage) of the hair growth cycle so hair can stay in that part of the cycle for longer than normal.

HAIR Amino acids play an important role in strengthening hair and promoting healthy hair growth, as well as shine. “Healthy hair requires plenty of keratin, and to a lesser extent, collagen. For the body to produce these structural proteins, it must have sufficient access to key amino acids,” says Dr. Henry.

The Ultimate Conditioner What to look for: Wheat amino acids What they do: These naturally derived acids (often used for their conditioning benefits) are obtained from wheat once it’s been broken down. “Wheat is not a protein, and by definition, amino acids come from protein,” says Dr. Gross. “So, because wheat is really a carbohydrate, the effects of these types of amino acids, while still effective, won’t be as strong as other derivatives.” Find them in: John Masters Organics Honey & Hibiscus Hair Reconstructor, $28, johnmasters.com

D I D YO U KNOW? When two amino acids from a bond, the result is a peptide chain.
What it does: It impacts hair growth by assisting in the synthesis of keratin. “Arginine is also the precursor for nitric oxide, which improves blood and nutrient supply at the root of the hair.

WHERE DO BRANCH CHAIN A M I N O AC I D S FIT IN?
Because amino acids are critical for proper nutrition and cell renewal, it makes perfect sense for someone who has a hard time gaining muscle to take branched chain amino acids (BCAA). “BCAA refers to the chemical structure of a particular group of amino acids. These amino acids comprise approximately 35 percent of all muscle tissue and have the greatest metabolic potential for energy use in the muscles,” says McKinnon. The three types of BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine and valine. Many times, BCAAs are recommended for those who are serious about working out because they prevent muscle breakdown, act as fuel for your workouts and help you look lean.

which lets it do its job without the interruption of any other vitamins, minerals or nutrients that you may be getting from other whole foods. The easiest way to get a steady stream of BCAAs is either with a supplement drink, whey protein (pick this one when you want to keep your caloric intake down), pea or rice protein, a glass of milk, or lean protein.
With so many supplements out there to choose from that contain amino acids and essential amino acids, it’s important to find one that not only tastes good, but also isn’t loaded with sugar or filler agents that equate to empty calories.

For years (25 to be exact), dentists have turned to the stain-erasing power of tooth whiteners simply because the results they deliver are dramatic enough to take your smile from drab to fab. But, with so many different options out there (and so many myths about whitening, too), understanding exactly how they work and then finding the right one for you can be a daunting task. However, when you finally discover the right option, it can make a world of difference in your smile.

WHEN IT COMES TO WHITENING YOUR TEETH, THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO DO IT: EITHER AT YOUR DENTIST’S OFFICE OR AT HOME.
Years of drinking dark beverages like tea, coffee, soda and red wine and eating stain-inducing foods including berries, tomato sauce and balsamic vinegar, can cause pigments to become attached to the outer portion of the teeth. Even if you practice good oral hygiene habits, the only way to really lift these stains off is by bleaching them. “Yellow or brown teeth and stains respond quickly and more effectively to bleaching than other colored stains because the chemistry of the bleach works better on them,” says Wayne, NJ, cosmetic dentist Donald Spitzer, DDS.
YOU’VE SMOKED FOR YEARS.

One of the many downsides to this unhealthy habit is discolored teeth. It’s rare to see a smoker with really white, bright teeth. For the most part, smoking causes teeth to become discolored because of the constant exposure to nicotine.
Both in-office and at-home whitening treatments
are effective, and most rely on the same ingredient, bleach, to lighten teeth, while others boast of proprietary ingredients. One of two forms of bleach can be used—hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which breaks down into hydrogen peroxide. On average, in-office treatments use bleaching agents in concentrations as high as 35 percent; over-thecounter options weigh in at around 10 to 22 percent. The strength of the bleach, as well as how long it is left on the teeth, determines which stains will be lifted, how bright the teeth will be and how soon you’ll see results. “Bleaching is the number-one cosmetic dental treatment because it is the leastexpensive way to improve the smile,” says Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald Goldstein, DDS. But before you decide to whiten your teeth (regardless of which treatment you choose), a good cleaning is a must to remove any debris that could prevent the bleaching agent from fully penetrating them.
YOUR TEETH ARE AGING AND NEED A LITTLE PICK-ME-UP. It’s not uncommon for the aging process to leave teeth looking discolored and dingy. “Age-related stains are some of the harder ones to remove because the molecules have accumulated inside the teeth and stayed there for so long,” says Wellington, FL, cosmetic dentist Sam Sadati, DDS. “Older teeth have stronger stains than younger teeth, and they are more attached to the surface, which makes them harder to break.”
THEY’VE INCURRED AN INJURY OF SOME SORT. Once an injury ensues in and around a tooth and connecting gums and it causes internal bleeding, the inner part of the tooth becomes permanently damaged and dark. If whitening treatments don’t do much to lighten them up, veneers or crowns may need to be used because the discoloration can be concealed underneath them.
MEDICATION HAS DARKENED YOUR TEETH. Certain medications, like tetracycline, are notorious for causing the teeth to become really dark—almost gray in color—as can medical treatments like chemotherapy. “In my opinion, tetracycline stains, which get into the dentin (a layer of tissue between the enamel and pulp) of the teeth, are the hardest to get rid of. We have to treat these stains with a different regimen depending on how serious patients are about removing them,” says Dr. Sadati. “Sometimes, treatments can last six months or longer to get the teeth as white, or as close to what we like.”
HERE’S WHY YOU NEED TO WHITEN YOUR TEETH

Fort Lauderdale, FL, cosmetic dentist Yolanda Cintron, DMD, was able to transform this woman’s smile with teeth whitening and closed up her visible spaces using porcelain veneers.
CAN YOU BLEACH A VENEER? One of the many benefits to getting veneers (ultrathin porcelain shells that are adhered to the front of your natural teeth) is that the color can be customized to the exact shade you want. And, that color really shouldn’t fade or become dull or dark as long as your veneers are made with porcelain and not composite material. But even if you have veneers, which are pretty stain-resistant, they can sometimes look darker over time due to the natural aging of the underlying teeth. However, bleaching veneers can be tricky. Sometimes, your dentist can oxidize the tooth with a special whitening gel. If there is some darkness to a veneer, it usually has to be replaced with a lighter one.

WHITENING TOOTHPASTES WILL DESTROY YOUR ENAMEL.
THREE WHITENING MYTHS BUSTED
Toothpastes that contain whitening ingredients don’t work the same as bleaching treatments—they don’t actually bleach teeth, but instead, work to get rid of surface stains. Some products can contain ingredients like pumice and coarse abrasives that, when used multiple times per day for years on end, can cause some damage to the teeth. In a nutshell, brushing daily
with a dentist-recommended whitening toothpaste that’s deemed safe shouldn’t put your enamel at risk of being harmed. Keep in mind that if the enamel on your teeth is compromised prior to brushing with a whitening toothpaste, you’re more likely to experience some erosion of the enamel. 2
ALL TYPES OF WHITENERS CAUSE SENSITIVITY. The more sensitive your teeth are, the more likely you are to experience some
discomfort with a whitening treatment. But not every person will experience sensitivity, nor will every type of whitener cause it. “Consumers have tried so many over-the-counter bleaching systems that caused pain that could have been predicted and avoided if the patient had first had an X-ray done. Hidden decay can provoke discomfort, too,” says Dr. Goldstein. “I tell patients that if their teeth are sensitive to cold before bleaching, then bleaching could be uncomfortable.”
WHITENING ISN’T “SAFE.” For the most part, whitening treatments of any kind are safe and won’t pose any threat to your health (even if you accidentally swallow a tiny bit of the whitening agent). Do-it-yourself whitening treatments aren’t going to ruin your teeth, but you should know the health status of your teeth before you begin any treatment.

THREE WAYS TO DO IT
IF YOU WANT TO QUICKLY MAKE YOUR TEETH NOTICEABLY WHITER, THERE’S NO EASIER WAY TO DO IT THAN AT YOUR DOCTOR’S OFFICE.
THE REAL DEAL ON THE SENSITIVITY FACTOR
In-office whitening treatments brighten teeth in a single visit. “Professional bleaching gives an immediate result because the concentration of bleach used is higher than what’s in over-the-counter products,” says Dr. Spitzer. To bleach the teeth, a protective barrier is placed over the gums, which allows for strong whiteners to be used without irritation. Then, whitening gel is applied (up to three times). Beverly Hills, CA, cosmetic dentist Katherine Ahn, DDS, says that the peroxide in the bleach diffuses into the tooth and reacts with stains to whiten. Heat from lights and lasers can help speed up the effects.
WITH A LASER
WITH A LIGHT
Oftentimes a laser is used to accelerate the effects of the whitening solution that is applied. When this is the case, the heat from the laser is directed at the teeth to activate the whitening agent and get the teeth whiter faster. Laser-assisted whitening can be done in one visit, but anywhere from one to four layers of gel need to applied to the teeth during the hour-long appointment. And, if the laser is not used properly, it can overheat the teeth and cause potential nerve damage.
Similar to how a laser is used to get better whitening results, a special UV light can be placed in front of the teeth (after the whitening gel has been applied). When this is done, the light is said to “cure” the bleaching material so that it penetrates the teeth more evenly to get rid of stubborn stains. While there may be some sensitivity with the treatment, your dentist will need to reapply the whitening gel a few times throughout the procedure to get your teeth to their ideal shade.
THE PRO: It’s a fast way to bleach teeth when the bleaching agent is activated by heat or via the laser.
THE PRO: This is the best option for getting whiter teeth if your teeth have yellow stains.
THE CON: Not only are lasers the most expensive way to whiten your teeth, but the laser itself can also sometimes cause gum problems and sensitivity issues, especially in young adults and those up to 40 years old.
THE CON: Some systems can take longer than others to work, which means multiple appointments.
PAINTING IT ON THE TEETH There are some dentists who choose not to use a light or laser with bleaching materials, and instead, handpaint the whitening gel directly onto the teeth or use a tray to deliver the whitening formula. In fact, this is how dentists first bleached teeth before the advent of lasers and lights. Every 10 minutes, another layer of bleach is applied to the teeth until the desired shade of whiteness is reached. THE PRO: According to Dr. Sadati, this method is more predictable than those that use lights and lasers, like in-office power bleaching, because the teeth aren’t dehydrated, which results in a temporarily whiter look. THE CON: Not all dentists think this is an effective method. It also takes the longest amount of time to perform out of all the dentistadministered options.
For all that whitening can do for your smile, you can’t discount the fact that it can cause sensitivity, but it really depends on the relationship of the pulp in your teeth to the thickness of your enamel. “The thicker the enamel is and further the pulp is from the enamel, the less sensitivity that will occur,” says Dr. Goldstein. “However, so many patients have gum recession and enamel erosion at the gum line, which can make the teeth more susceptible to sensitivity.” Add in the fact that when bleach penetrates the enamel rods of the teeth and meets up with the tubules, which contain nerve endings, you can feel that tinge of pain no matter what type of bleaching method is used. The younger the teeth are, the larger the pulp tissue tends to be, which means there’s more of a chance for sensitivity. But, any tenderness you may experience won’t be long-term—on average, it lasts a few days. Unbeknownst to many, you can actually stop it before it starts. “In the office, make sure a rubber or liquid dam is used to cover any potentially sensitive and eroded areas. You can also get a series of desensitization treatments done prior to bleaching. And, if any tubules are exposed, your dentist can seal them before whitening your teeth to avoid sensitivity issues,” adds Dr. Goldstein.

Some dentists think that in-office bleaching can only do so much. “To make the most of a treatment, I recommend a full course of an at-home bleaching system be used first, then an in-office power bleach can be used as the final stage,” says Dr. Sadati.

science. The biggest point of difference between
what your dentist can do in the office versus what you can buy over the counter (some treatments are sold at dentist offices, too) is the concentration of bleach. “Products that contain carbamide peroxide (in concentrations of 10 to 30 percent) and hydrogen peroxide (in concentrations of 3 to 12 percent) are most commonly used and tend to be the most effective. Carbamide peroxide is packaged in higher concentrations because it converts to hydrogen peroxide first, as hydrogen peroxide is the active agent,” says Dr. Ahn. “Carbamide peroxide works slower than hydrogen peroxide, but it does have the advantage of being gentler on teeth.”
THE TOOTHBRUSH THAT WHITENS
01 WHITE STRIPS
HOW THEY WORK: Whitening strips release bleach into the teeth via a moldable strip that wraps around the teeth. Most strips are to be left on for about 30 minutes, but you’ll need to wear them consecutively for a few days or up to a few weeks (as instructed) to see a difference. THE PRO: They’re easy to use and not messy because nothing has to be squeezed into a tray or onto the teeth. THE CON: If you abuse them, you can increase your risk for sensitivity. Dr. Goldstein adds that strips don’t cover the back molars, which may be in your smile zone. ONE TO TRY: Spotlight Teeth Whitening Strips Kit, $56, spotlightwhitening.com
02 WHITENING TRAYS
HOW THEY WORK: Whitening trays can either be pre-made or customized. They can also be slept in to deliver a steady stream of bleach directly into the teeth. “The use of a correctly fabricated tray during sleep can prevent saliva from seeping into the tray, therefore making the material do its job more effectively,” says Dr. Sadati. After two weeks, teeth should appear brighter. THE PRO: “Custom molds allow for the best possible adaptation,” says Dr. Goldstein. THE CON: Every time you wear the trays, you need to fill them with bleach. ONE TO TRY: Opalescence Go, $69, opalescence.com
LIGHT-BASED LIGHTENING KITS
HOW THEY WORK: Suitable for on-the-go whitening and last minute touch-ups, whitening pens contain bleach in low doses that stay on the teeth— don’t rinse your mouth or wipe your teeth because the bleach can deactivate. THE PRO: They’re portable and don’t typically cause any discomfort compared to other types of whiteners. THE CON: It’s easy for the bleaching agent to rub off of your teeth. In order to make sure the pen is working, you’ll probably need to avoid eating or drinking anything for at least one hour after using it. ONE TO TRY: AuraGlow Professional On-The-Go Teeth Whitening Pen, $29, myauraglow.com
HOW THEY WORK: You may recognize these devices from social media—celebs love to post pictures with whitening lights in their mouths. The miniature LED lights are thought to function the same way as those done in-office. The light accelerates the bleaching process (gel needs to be applied to the teeth first), although these treatments aren’t as strong as what your dentist can provide. THE PRO: Many have timers to let you know when you’re done. THE CON: They can leave teeth feeling sensitive. ONE TO TRY: GLO Brilliant Personal Teeth Whitening Device, $220, sephora.com
HOW THEY WORK: Loaded with low-dose whitening agents and/ or mild abrasives, whitening toothpastes work to gently lift up stains (some formulas even use carbon to brighten). “Whitening toothpastes that contain more abrasive ingredients will help to prevent stains from forming on your teeth,” says Dr. Spitzer. THE PRO: Generally, these are the most inexpensive way to get whiter teeth. THE CON: These can take a while to work and do not typically whiten teeth more than one shade at most. ONE TO TRY: Curaprox Black Is White Tough Whitening Toothpaste, $30, curaprox.com
For the most part, it’s not the toothbrush itself, but rather what you put on it that can help lead you down the path to a brighter smile. But, the new Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Rose Gold Edition is changing all that and claims to be a specialized toothbrush that does way more than your average toothbrush. Boasting sonic technology and three unique heads—we’re partial to the DiamondClean one that uses diamondshaped bristles to detach plaque and surface stains for whiter teeth—this pretty electronic toothbrush even features a “white” brushing mode so you can make your teeth that much brighter. $220, usa.philips.com

Actress and model ANGIE HARMON doesn’t look any different than she did when she first made her mark in Hollywood nearly 26 years ago.
S FOR AS MUCH AS SHE STAYS TRUE TO HER LOOK, ANGIE ADMITS SHE’LL NEVER TAKE ANY TYPE OF COSMETIC PROCEDURE OFF THE TABLE.
Her real segue into beauty came during her modeling days as a teenager in the late 1980s. “It was an incredible time for me. It’s interesting to see the transition of what is considered beautiful and how it’s changed. I remember being in Milan—one of the first times I was modeling—and seeing Linda Evangelista in person. Her beauty literally brought tears to my eyes. She had this elegance, class and sass to her, and she was beautiful. The supermodels of the late ’80s and early ’90s had this confidence to them, but it wasn’t arrogance. They owned what they had and didn’t hide it. That was really sort of burned into my brain and still is today.”
ELISABETH CAREN/CONTOUR BY GETTY IMAGES
ome may say it’s because she hit the genetic lottery—it doesn’t hurt that both of her parents were models, too— while others may credit her flawless skin and to-die-for body to simply taking care of herself. But no matter which way you slice it, Angie says her look hasn’t veered all that much from when she first burst onto the scene because she knows what works for her. “I love a good, fun trend, but I’ve learned to stick more with the classics and what looks good on me,” says the mother of three. “I feel best when I’ve got a little bit of a tan, a great coat of mascara on my lashes and soft, shiny hair, which is pretty much what I’ve always worn, and still do.”
2/21/17 9:28 AM
HOW SHE LOOKS SO GOOD THE BEAUTY SECRETS THAT ANGIE LEARNED AT A YOUNGER AGE HAVE STUCK WITH HER THROUGHOUT HER LIFE. “Over the years, I learned a lot of tricks that I still use. François Nars taught me to line the inside of my top eyelids. I’m dark-haired and have dark features and there needs to be some sort of balance. This makes my eyes pop a little bit.” “My hairdresser, David Garner, who is all about vitamins and hair masks, has always told me to use as little heat as possible, which helps keep my hair in good condition. I’ve learned how to get a lot out of my hair without having to use much heat. For years, I’ve used really solid hair conditioners and masks and I always wait as long as possible to wash it. My hair has definitely changed as I’ve gotten older, but it looked and felt the absolute best when I was pregnant with my daughters. It was so thick—I had so much hair then. It was just glorious.”
“I’ve always tried not to wear much makeup, even when I’m working. When I’m just running around, I usually put on a tinted moisturizer from Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier or bareMinerals and some cover-up. But, I always, always have on mascara. Clinique High Lengths Mascara is my favorite and the only one I wear.” “I believe in getting a lot of sleep, eating healthy, drinking water—things like that. I know when I’m tired and haven’t been able to take care of myself that I don’t look my best.”
Anti-Aging Angie While she hasn’t changed her hair color—it’s still raven black—cut it supershort, added waist-grazing extensions (she’s pretty much always rocked the same classic style), or overhauled her look with face-altering plastic surgery, Angie does admit to dipping her toe into the world of preventive anti-aging and says she’s no stranger to Botox. “I tried it one time and hated it, so I didn’t do it again. Botox was just not my thing.” But, she says she doesn’t judge the whole Botox, filler and ‘any other type of enhancement’ thing. “We are all here fighting to be the best version of ourselves. Personally, I don’t want to look
dramatically different or like I’ve had anything done. I just want to always look myself, and natural. It’s not that I’m opposed to any of this, and I know that it can be done so that you still look like you and pretty. It’s just that I’m not quite there yet.”
these surgeries cut into your face, and later on you look beautiful and still like yourself. I don’t know at what age to embark on those types of procedures, but if I were to do something, the most important thing would be that I always look like me.”
For as much as she stays true to her look, Angie admits she’ll never completely take any type of cosmetic procedure off the table. “You hear about all these new things coming out, and I’m sure I’ll get around to investigating them at some point. If I’m going to do anything, I’m definitely going to do my research,” she says. “To me, it’s fascinating that some of
Just like how Angie has been able to maintain her look over the years, she has preserved the same beauty philosophies, too. “Beauty is as beauty does. You’re not pretty on the outside if you’re not pretty on the inside. You need to respect yourself and hold yourself to high standards. That’s our ground zero. I felt this way when I was in high school and I teach this to my daughters today.”

relax. CHABLÉ MEXICO — When it opened at the very end of last year, this five-star spa retreat located 25 minutes from the historic city of Mérida “changed the wellness game for Mexico.” Now, the unique spa—an expansive 32,000-square-foot-facility set in a private natural “cenote” (considered sacred by the ancient Mayans)—is ready to roll out to equally rave reviews.
WHO TO ASK FOR The executive chef. He selects ingredients daily from the spa’s on-site gardens for the organic meals.
WHEN TO GO Soon. The resort is still rather under-the-radar because it recently opened; it will most likely start selling out fast.

Ahead, the top 12 award-worthy products and upgrades to enhance your look and solve your beauty problems once and for all.

A Rough Complexion That Highlights Blemishes
An effective skin-care routine doesn’t have to be a mile long. In fact, some of the best results come from the simplest products with time-tested fundamentals behind them, like moisture, exfoliation and the importance of a clean slate.
Create a Smooth Canvas Not only do exfoliators immediately leave your complexion feeling silkysmooth, but they can also help your skin-care products penetrate better and deeper than if you hadn’t used one. Salicylic acid and aloe gently exfoliate in Christie Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish. $24, kohls.com
Makeup That Looks Caked On
Delete Dryness Beneath the Surface No amount of foundation can hide dry patches on a complexion.
