In the unwritten “rule book” shared by coworkers, there is no bigger violation than calling in sick on a Monday. Then, of course, there are the coworkers, those who show up, regardless of how horrible they feel, even on this dreaded post-weekend day. They take the trophy for pulling it together, climbing out of bed, driving to the office, getting work done, and apologizing in the process, so focused—and often sincerely concerned—on not getting everyone else sick in their wake. Connie Britton is part of that group. “The show must go on,” she says, in a raspy, congested voice that is somewhat unrecognizable as she enters our photo shoot. The consummate professional is sick, and, on top of that, mourning the loss of her beloved dog of 14 years. But she shows up on time, ready to work, with a totally engaging personality and ready-to-do-anything attitude that you might expect of someone who has achieved the level of success she has. And in true “mother-first, celebrity-second” fashion, she has her fouryear-old son, Yoby, at her side, enjoying the plastic crocodile toy he brought with him and the infinite obstacle course that the location of the photo shoot, a house in the Hollywood Hills, would provide any child accompanying their mom on a bit of a take-your-child-to-work day.

Diet Do

“My philosophy on life impacts my diet. I don’t want to create a vision of a woman who is starving herself, but I also like to feel good, so I tend to stick to certain healthy foods that do that. But, I love cake, and I eat it sometimes— even though I don’t always feel so great afterward.”

WhY IT happEnS

“The best fixes for shifting teeth include bringing your bite into proper occlusion, repairing decay and making sure that the shifting is not caused by periodontal disease. Orthodontic treatment is another way to treat the teeth.”

02

Teeth can shift for a number of reasons—anything from the aging process, which causes changes in the gums, bones (this is more common in older patients) and health of the teeth, to grinding can cause the teeth to move. As teeth shift, they begin to slowly move from their current position and rotate forward, backward or sideways. Sarasota, FL, cosmetic dentist Jenifer Back, DDS, says that shifting can start in your 30s and will progress if not properly addressed. “Even if you have had an orthodontic treatment, unless you wear a retainer, you can expect some shifting,” adds Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald Goldstein, DDS.

You probably won’t notice much of a difference in your teeth overnight, but the more your teeth start to move, the more noticeable the differences become. New York cosmetic dentist Irene Grafman, DDS, says that patients tend to notice movement-related changes to their front teeth because those teeth are most visible. At your regular dental checkups, your dentist should always be checking for periodontal pockets and bone loss, which are indicators for potential problems like shifting. However, Dr. Goldstein says that if you apply some pressure on your teeth using your finger and you feel some mobility or looseness, you can be pretty sure that your teeth are moving to some degree.

The healTh effecTs associaTed wiTh crowded TeeTh not only is a smile with teeth that look crowded or misaligned less aesthetically pleasing, but los altos, ca, cosmetic dentist bruce hartley, dds, says that it can carry serious health ramifications, too. “crowded or crooked teeth collect more bacterial plaque, which studies have linked to heart disease, gum disease and dementia.” more > 168

The rest of the face (and any untreated features) can appear undervolumized, when in fact, they really may not be. An imbalance in volume disrupts the natural proportions of the face,” says Dr. Biesman.

The midface can become disTorTed. The lips and cheeks are often revolumized and the lower face is left alone. ”While volume needs to be maintained throughout the face, if you don’t have flat cheeks or fat loss, and fillers are used, the appearance of the midface can become distorted,” says West Palm Beach, FL, facial plastic surgeon Michael Schwartz, MD.

The lips don’T maTch The face. With or without fillers, the lower lip should be a bit larger than the upper lip. When too much volume is added, the face is thrown off balance. Oftentimes, patients try to match their facial features to their lips by adding volume throughout.

DiD You Know?

Why your skin changes

01

As you enter your 40s, the thinning of your skin accelerates. This isn’t a change you’ll see overnight—it’s likely to take weeks, or even months, for the texture of your skin to transform. Melbourne, FL, dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, says there are a few elements that cause skin to become crepey. “The sun, a loss of collagen and elastin, and a decline in moisture due to aging, can all cause changes in texture.” Crepey skin becomes more pronounced when there’s a significant amount of fat loss in the area (from aging or weight loss). “Chronic use of medications like steroids can also be a causative factor,” adds Dr. Saluja. A decrease in female hormones, which leads to dry skin, contributes to crepiness on the arms and thighs more so than the face. Hormonal replacement therapies may help improve the look of the skin.

According to La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, while these treatments may have benefits, they are not a replacement for surgery in patients with anything other than minimal concerns.

own and laCks the firmness it used to have, doesn’t mean you have to live with it like that.

Skin that has turned crepey is thin, loose and flaccid with a certain degree of sagging. Sacramento, CA, dermatologist Suzanne Kilmer, MD, says that crepey skin doesn’t look nearly as thick or plump as younger skin does. Often compared to the thinness of a piece of paper or a crêpe, it’s the thinning of the dermis and epidermis that make skin look like this. “Crepey skin differs from other types of skin aging,” says Dr. Alexiades. “It first appears as an increase in skin markings, which look like little dots around the hair follicle that start to merge into linear or diamond-shaped marks and connect the dots together.” Over time, the subtle creases and pores in the skin slowly become exaggerated as the breakdown of collagen and elastin becomes more evident. From there, skin folds accumulate and skin starts to thin out. Whereas a stretch mark is the cause of a dermal tear in the skin and a loss of elastin, and a wrinkle forms from repeat motions in one area, crepey skin is more so the result of a lack of skin thickness.

Everyone is susceptible to crepey skin, but some skin tones and types are more likely to experience it than others. Anyone who’s prone to sun damage and has little melanin in their skin—think fair- and lighter-toned types—and those who bake in the sun or use tanning beds, may see signs of it faster or more intensely. Certain ethnicities, such as Latinas, African Americans and Asians, inherently have thicker skin than others, which may hinder the effects of crepiness to some degree. more >

WHAT’S HOT IN

BEAUTY

ELISE MINTON EXECUTIVE BEAUTY EDITOR

is ice rolling the next new thing in beauty? The application of cold for beauty purposes just keeps on growing, and the latest trend is “ice rolling.” Consisting of an at-home handheld plastic head roller tool (there’s an in-office professional version made of stainless steel) that looks almost like a mini paint roller of sorts, the premise behind this is that rolling something cold over your face helps depuff, lift, firm and calm your skin. Intrigued by this, I decided to give it a try. I put the Hansderma SkinCool Ice Roller to use a few days after I had filler injected and I was feeling a little swollen. I thought, it couldn’t hurt, right? After 24 hours in the freezer, the roller is activated, and it feels so good as you gently glide it across your skin. My face instantly felt tighter and firmer—even my under-eye bags seemed to be less noticeable (although they weren’t completely erased). This may just become my new go-to for instant skin rejuvenation or when I want my makeup to look that much better.

buttock augmentations were performed in 2014— that’s an 86.1 percent increase from 2013.

Women will go to pretty much any extreme to get thighs that are firm, thin and free of cellulite. Now, thanks to a new in-office procedure that targets the thighs exclusively, you can be one step closer to the legs you’ve always wanted. Vanquish Flex uses the same fat-melting technology as its sister treatment, Vanquish, but works to fight fatty areas on the thighs instead of the abdomen. Using radio-frequency energy to heat up deep layers of tissue, Vanquish Flex relies on a specially designed two-panel system that doesn’t directly touch the patient, which makes the treatment more comfortable. While the results are permanent, they won’t be immediate—it can take six weeks to see them. And, one thing to keep in mind is the time commitment required: four to six sessions spaced about one week to 10 days apart.

LIVING PROOF NIGHT CAP OVERNIGHT PERFECTOR

I recently lightened my hair and needed something more powerful than the average conditioning mask, so I gave this leave-in a shot. I loaded up my hair with it, brushed it through and went to bed. In the morning, after I rinsed it out, I was amazed at how soft, shiny and manageable my hair was. $28, livingproof.com

MARIO BADESCU BOTANICAL EXFOLIATING SCRUB

Effective without being harsh, this exfoliator lifts away dead skin to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. I like that it’s supergentle because many exfoliators make my skin feel uncomfortable when washing with them. Plus, it smells oh-so good. $26, mariobadescu.com

03 BENEFIT ROLLER LASH MASCARA I love mascara, and I instantly fell head over heels for this kitschy-looking one, which is inspired by old-school hair rollers. It lifts, curls, separates and lengthens lashes all in one fell swoop. Never cakey or flaky, two coats of this provitamin B5–based formula keeps my lashes looking perfect all day long. $24, ulta.com

Of course, that miracle product still doesn’t exist. If it did, every other option we discuss would be obsolete and it would seem absurd to even write about them. There are some very effective products out there that do produce some impressive improvements, but many of the outrageous claims and too-good-to-believe results should really be taken with some level of caution.

REMEMBERING AN INNOVATOR

Brandt was a man of generous “Dr. spirit. He has left a significant void

DR. FREDRIC BRANDT This spring, we said good-bye to dermatologist Frederic Brandt, MD, one of the beauty industry’s most forward thinkers and a trusted NewBeauty board member and go-to source since the first issue of the magazine launched more than a decade ago. He forever changed the way we age and helped revolutionize the anti-aging field. Always one to experiment with mixing nature and science, Dr. Brandt viewed life with zest, touching the lives of everyone he treated and helped along the way. Dr. Brandt continually unearthed newfangled and inventive applications for fillers and injectables as well as new anti-aging combinations. As a cancer researcher at Memorial Sloan Kettering, he discovered the powers of antioxidants, which would later serve as the base of his eponymous skin-care line. An expert injector who treated droves of celebrities and A-listers, Dr. Brandt could artistically wield a needle in such a way to transform an aging face into one that was perfectly smooth and reinstated with volume and dimension. An artist in his own right, Dr. Brandt provided the beauty world with contributions on every level and we pay homage to his accolades and everlasting influence.

DNA Repair Enzymes

Lip Oils

Ultraviolet radiation from the sun, smoking, pollution and the natural aging process are just a handful of factors that can cause your DNA to become damaged, which shows up in the form of discoloration, sagging and even skin cancer. So how can you repair the damage for healthier, KEY younger-looking skin? The answer lies in creams INGREDIENT andLorem serums that contain DNA repair enzymes. Derived from marine and botanical sources such as ipsums dolor these powerful age and damage reversers plankton, have been deemed by beauty experts as one of the most important things to happen to skin care. Encapsulated in liposomes (tiny synthetic bubbles made of the same material as cell membranes) so they can be delivered deep into skin, DNA repair enzymes literally seek out damaged DNA in skin cells and then repair it. “Antioxidants act like sponges to ‘mop up’ oxidants floating inside the cells that damage DNA, but they can’t repair the damage,” says Eagan, MN, dermatologist Charles E. Crutchfield III, MD. “DNA repair enzymes work like a seamstress of sorts, cutting out the damage and then patching the holes with a piece of undamaged DNA, which is what makes them so revolutionary. Products that contain these enzymes have the potential to really make a difference in overall skin quality and health.”

Hair Color–Depositing Products You may remember color-depositing products from back in the ’90s, which gave a temporary color boost to dull or faded hair. While the majority of these products fell out of production for a number of years, they’re making a comeback as shampoos and conditioners from brands like dpHUE and Pureology. “Color manufacturers thought they were too niche and focused on developing new permanent hair dyes instead,” says New York celebrity colorist Beth Minardi. “Now, we’re seeing a rebirth of this category as image-conscious consumers desire vibrant color that looks fresh between salon appointments.” So how exactly do they work? The formulas combine nonoxidated dye (there’s no peroxide) with cleansing and conditioning ingredients to refresh your color. Use them every fourth or fifth time you shampoo or as stated on the bottle (the dye starts to wash out at about this time), and don’t apply them to your roots—a root touch-up product should be used there instead. “These products beautify every hair color from icy blond all the way to deep black,” says Minardi. “I believe this is just the beginning of this important type of product.”

3 THE TREND

THE TREND

Bamboo Sap in Skin Care It comes as no surprise that the next big skin-care ingredient on our radar, bamboo sap, comes from Korea, a region booming with breakthrough beauty trends. “Making its way into products around the world, bamboo sap is a very noteworthy trend in skin care,” says Charlotte Cho, cofounder of Soko Glam, a website that sells Korean beauty products. “Cultivated from the bamboo plant, the refined water from bamboo sap can replace regular water in products that aren’t water-based, such as oil moisturizers, which is beneficial because its long-term hydrating effects on skin are more powerful than water.” Cho says one of her favorite brands that feature the ingredient is AmorePacific. “The luxurious effect that bamboo sap has on skin has stirred interest in the U.S.,” says Jinsup Shi, senior researcher and bamboo expert for AmorePacific. “It helps activate and restore skin cell proliferation and improves barrier function so skin is hydrated, nourished and more luminous. Not only is the ingredient rich with natural benefits, but it’s also tied to the cultural ‘K-Beauty’ trend, which has shined a light on Korea’s driving force in all things beauty.”

Intermittent Fasting

5

It seems like every day there’s a new diet garnering major buzz—the latest one gaining traction is the 5:2 Fast Diet. A unique approach to weight loss, the diet focuses on intermittent fasting, which in this case means reducing the amount of food you eat for any two days of the week. The method relies heavily on psychological effects—you aren’t depriving yourself of food for long periods of time or tricking your metabolism, but rather training yourself to eat healthier and reduce cravings. Created by London-based physician Michael Mosley, MD, and built on the work of scientists who have studied fasting, the diet involves eating 2,000 calories per day (an occasional slice of pizza is not off limits) for five days and then cutting down to a total of 500 calories on each of the other two days. “Fasting days should include plenty of protein and vegetables. I like an egg at breakfast, a low-calorie soup at lunch, fish and veggies at dinner, and a handful of nuts for a snack,” says Dr. Mosley. New York–based certified nutritionist Franci Cohen says that the diet is safe, but not for those who are pregnant or have an eating disorder. “I think people are gravitating to it because it gives them attainable short-term diet goals.”

why it’s worth it! YOU CAN TAILOR YOUR CLOTHES TO FIT YOUR BODY BETTER AND YOU CAN ADJUST YOUR DIET TO HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT, BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN IT COMES TO SKIN CARE? “CUSTOMIZATION IS THE HOLY GRAIL IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY, AS IT ENABLES CONSUMERS TO GET WHAT THEY TRULY WANT AND NEED,” SAYS SABRINA TAN, CEO AND FOUNDER OF SKIN INC, A COMPANY THAT OFFERS CUSTOMIZED SKIN-CARE PRODUCTS.

IZED M O T CUS CARE

SKIN

$500 $95– T S CO

“There is a luxury, 1 high-end feel to bespoke products made ‘just for you.’” —DR. KING

why you should try it Customized skin-care products allow for individuals to feel more in control of their overall beauty routines. “Your skin is unique and changes with your environment, lifestyle, stress levels, etc. So, trying to find what’s right for you in an off-the-shelf product can often come with a lot of trial and error,” says Tan. “Personalizing your skin care lets you get the results you want, with less fuss.”

2

the benefits Beauty products that are tailored to each individual put the focus on the lifestyle they lead to create a skin-care routine that targets their needs simply and effectively. “It’s a ‘one-sizefits-one’ approach, not ‘one size fits all.’ We build on the fundamental building block of healthy skin, which is effective and long-lasting hydration with high-quality humectants, and then combine that with a custom cocktail of beneficial actives selected for your skin’s needs,” says Tan. New York dermatologist Hadley King, MD, agrees with the concept. “It makes sense to use products that target your specific concerns and are a good match for you,” she says. Personalized products can also help minimize irritations and sensitivities because the products work in tandem with your skin type. Plus, with some products, you can even customize the formulation (think serum, cream, oil, etc.) to match your personal preference.

the cost factor “Because these products are designed to address your unique concerns, it saves you the work of experimenting with different products to find the best fit, and therefore a higher expense may be expected,” says Dr. King. Tan considers customized skin care to be rather accessible. “It allows you to invest in a few well-selected, effective products rather than several ineffective products that could leave you with a skin-care graveyard.”

3

the bottom line Dr. King says that the promise with customized skin care is that the products may make the process of finding a good product match for you a bit easier, which can definitely be worth the higher price tag. “And, there is a luxury, high-end feel to bespoke products made ‘just for you,’” she adds.

EDGY + DRAMATIC

Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who created this look, chose to play up Naomi’s lips. “I looked for a deep, bruised-plum tone that would flatter her delicate features. I also wanted to make sure her eye makeup was strong and defined to balance with her lips, so I made sure to put emphasis on the corners and lashes to bring attention to them.” A hint of rosy blush was also placed on the apples of the cheeks for a flirty touch.

FRESH + NATURAL

“Naomi is naturally beautiful, and this minimal makeup look really showcases her gorgeous blue eyes because most of the focus is on the lashes and mascara,” says celebrity makeup artist Julianne Kaye. “Great foundation coverage, the right amount of cheek color for a natural-looking flush, and defined lashes that create a fluttery effect, complete this sophisticated and polished ‘no makeup’ makeup look.”

double duty NAIL POLISH MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE NAIL POLISH, THESE NEXT-GENERATION ENAMELS LEAVE NAILS SWATHED IN COLOR WITH THE ADDED BENEFIT OF GROWING STRONGER, LONGER NAILS AND SO MUCH MORE.

IS A DRY MANICURE THE WAY TO GO? When it comes to any manicure, the standard steps apply: clean, soak, file, buff, cut, and polish. But, some manicurists opt to skip the soaking (in water) part altogether and here’s why: Water causes the nail plates to lose their natural curl and straighten out. Once your nails fully dry, which happens long after you’ve left the salon, their natural shape resumes and the polish can lift off. “I do waterless manicures more on sets, for editorials and during Fashion Week,” says Michelle Saunders, celebrity manicurist for Essie. Also called a soakless manicure, this version is said to prevent dry cuticles. “It allows nails and cuticles to stay strong because they do not absorb the water, but rather the oils in the lotions instead so they get an extra dose of moisture.”

DOESN’T CAUSE DAMAGE RBG x Hipp Liquid Buff was developed as a way to give the look of just-buffed nails. It leaves nails sheer, pretty and less likely to split or break due to the biotin- and vitamin E–rich formula. $20, rgbcosmetics.com

THE SECRET TO A

YOUNGER-LOOKING

SMILE

THEY WON’T KNOW IT’S RESTYLANE® SILK. BUT THEY’LL SURE KNOW IT’S YOU.

THE FIRST AND ONLY FDA-APPROVED TREATMENT FOR THE LIPS AND LINES AROUND THE MOUTH. HYALURONIC ACID IS ALREADY PRODUCED IN YOUR BODY. BY INJECTING THIS GEL FILLER, YOU ARE ENHANCING THE FEATURES YOU ALREADY HAVE WITH THE ADDED BONUS OF FULLER LIPS AND SMOOTHER SKIN AROUND YOUR MOUTH.

WHAT IT IS A transparent hyaluronic acid gel filler that is injected by a boardcertified health-professional into the lips and wrinkles around the mouth (perioral lines). By injecting into these specific areas, the filler may increase the volume of lips and smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth.

HOW IT WORKS Restylane® Silk is uniquely formulated for precise lip shaping and defining and adding volume to skin, which results in larger lips and smoother wrinkles around the mouth. The effects can last up to six months.

WHO IT’S BEST FOR Patients with thin lips or lines around the mouth are the best candidates. You should check with your board-certified doctor before undergoing this treatment.

Watch our featured video on newbeauty.com where Dr. Doris Day discusses the benefits of Restylane Silk to enhance your smile.

Indication: Restylane® Silk is indicated for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation and dermal implantation for correction of perioral rhytids in patients over the age of 21. Use of Restylane Silk at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, tenderness, bruising, pain, and redness at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and resolve in 2-7 days after treatment. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis and scarring at the injection site. Do not implant into blood vessels. Use with caution in patients recently treated with anticoagulant or platelet inhibitors to avoid bleeding and bruising. Treatment volume should be limited to 1.5 mL per lip per treatment and 1.0 mL for perioral rhytid correction, as greater amounts significantly increase moderate and severe injection site reactions. The safety or effectiveness of treatment in areas other than lips and perioral rhytids has not been established in controlled clinical studies.

SERUM

WHAT IT IS An anti-aging brightening serum that you freeze and then apply to your skin once a week WHY IT’S SO DIFFERENT These brightening and regenerative serum-to-ice cube pods, developed by celebrity skin-care expert Mila Moursi, infuse skin with amino acids and minerals to give it a pick-me-up. Freeze them for 24 hours and then pop them into the enclosed gauze before massaging the cubes onto your face (they may drip). Moursi recommends them for stressed skin, like after a peel, laser treatment or IPL. Mila Moursi Cryo Serum Ice Cube Infusion, $155, barneys.com

SER THE CLEAN

THAT CLEAN

WHAT IT IS A cleanser and mask with color-coding technology so you can see which areas have been cleaned WHY IT’S SO DIFFERENT When massaged into dry skin, the enzyme beads in this cleanser burst open and change in color— it comes out peach, but changes to yellow or orange according to your skin’s pH—so you can see exactly where you are cleansing. To use it as a mask, just leave it on your skin for even more of a firming and brightening effect. Dr. Dennis Gross Color Smart Cleanser & Mask, $28, sephora.com

02 THE BLEMISH-BANISHING MAKEUP

WHY IT’S SO DIFFERENT Oily skin and makeup sometimes don’t mix. Besides keeping excess shine at bay, this makeup covers up blemished skin for a fresh finish while treating existing breakouts. “The beautiful texture is the result of a jet-milled process so that the powder feels smooth to the touch. On skin, it feels soft, silky and lightweight to conceal blemishes without caking or looking dry,” says Janet Pardo, senior vice president of product development for Clinique.

CREATE YOUR EVERYDAY ICONIC SMILE WITH RESTYLANE ® SILK See what physicians in your area have to say about Restylane Silk’s unique, refined formulation—the first and only FDA-approved filler designed specifically for the treatment of lips and the lines around them.

VIC A. NARURKAR, MD, FAAD Bay Area Laser Institute San Francisco, CA bayarealaserdr.com

“Restylane Silk has rapidly become our go-to filler treatment for fine lines around the mouth, especially the lipstick lines around the mouth, and for improving loss of volume in the lip. Our patients love the soft and natural look produced by Restylane Silk.”

REBECCA FITZGERALD, MD Rebecca Fitzgerald MD Los Angeles, CA rebeccafitzgeraldmd.com

“Restylane Silk is my new ‘go-to’ product for fresher, fuller lips that never look ‘done.’ This silky smooth product looks so natural; in fact, even the most critical eye will think you were just born lucky.”

MITCHEL P. GOLDMAN, MD Cosmetic Laser Dermatology San Diego, CA clderm.com

“Restylane Silk represents an advance in the already proven Restylane product line. The more finely dispersed HA particles in Restylane Silk allow for a smoother effect, which is particularly helpful in minimizing fine lines around the mouth and especially the barcode lines of the upper lip.”

W. GRANT STEVENS, MD Marina Plastic Surgery Marina Del Rey, CA marinaplasticsurgery.com

“Of all the fillers we offer, Restylane Silk is my favorite! There are so many applications for this natural and effective product. Best of all, our patients love the result!”

SUZANNE L. KILMER, MD Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California Sacramento, CA skinlasers.com

“I love the way Restylane Silk flows into the fine lines especially around the lips and plumps them up without over filling the area. And, I especially love its longevity—as do patients.”

Indication: Restylane® Silk is indicated for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation and dermal implantation for correction of perioral rhytids in patients over the age of 21. Restylane Silk contains traces of gram-positive bacterial protein and is contraindicated for patients with allergies to such material or for patients with severe allergies that have required in-hospital treatment. Restylane Silk should not be used by patients with bleeding disorders, with hypersensitivity to amide-type local anesthetics, such as lidocaine, under the age of 22, or by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Restylane Silk should not be injected anywhere except the dermis or lip submucosa. Use of Restylane Silk at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, tenderness, bruising, pain, and redness at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and resolve in 2-7 days after treatment.

WHAT IT IS A mineral-based self-tanner in a powder formulation WHY IT’S SO DIFFERENT This is the first time we’ve laid eyes on a self-tanner that isn’t a cream, spray or lotion, but rather a brush-on powder. Infused with a special mineral technology, the powder activates DHA (the ingredient responsible for tanning the skin) when placed on skin that’s been prepped with moisturizer or liquid foundation. Simply apply it with a kabuki brush (the product never comes in contact with your hands) for a natural bronze that lasts three to seven days. “I wanted to create a product that would take the fear out of tanning,” says CEO and founder Alyson Hogg. Vita Liberata Trystal Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals with Kabuki Brush, $55, sephora.com

R LIP STAIN

WHY IT’S SO DIFFERENT We’ve all experienced days when one part of our face calls for a different moisturizer than another. Rather than mixing and matching products, this moisturizer does all the work for you. The green side acts as a mattifier, while the white side targets dry patches on the cheeks with antioxidants and shea butter. “Combination skin is one of the most commonly encountered skin types, so we wanted to eliminate the need for multiple products to solve the concerns of those with this type of skin. This is a one-stop shop—a solution for oily and dry skin in an innovative, split jar that’s a real time-saver,” says Natalie Pergar, lead skin-care trainer for Éminence Organics. Éminence Organics Balancing Moisturizer Duo, $68, eminenceorganics.com

WHY IT’S SO DIFFERENT Lip stains boast staying power, but we’ve never come across one that claims to last for 10 hours. “It has the consistency of a water-based gel and the staying power of a matte-finish stain,” says Liru Chen, marketing director for Cailyn Cosmetics. First, you prep your lips with cleanser; then, you brush the stain on using a lip brush (you’ll feel a tingling and tightening effect). Let it sit for 10 minutes before peeling it off your lips, just like you would a face mask. The result: waterproof color that won’t budge or fade. For even longer-lasting results, line your lips with Cailyn Cosmetics lip liner, and for a shinier look, top them with clear gloss. Cailyn Cosmetics Cocoon Lip Stain, $22, cailyncosmetics.com

You should be confident with the way your legs look because there is little fabric to cover up anything you don’t want shown off. Long and short legs and petite bodies look good in mini and short skirts.

Not as long as full-length, but longer than knee-length, these skirts flare out at the calf and draw attention to that area. Midi skirts flatter those with thinner legs and calves, those who are taller and shorter than average, and curvier bodies, too.

The knee-length skirt is flattering to almost all body types. If your legs are short or stocky, you may want to alter the skirt so that it hits at the top of your knee to give a little more length to your legs.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND POWERFUL PRODUCTS

WHY THE SUN IS TIED TO AGING Some changes in skin due to aging are inevitable—some are not. “Photoaging from UV radiation exposure is the primary cause of extrinsic skin aging,” says Las Vegas plastic surgeon Goesel Anson, MD. “That means that it is largely preventable. There’s plenty of evidence to show that protecting skin from UV rays will improve its health and appearance with age. The ease of sunscreen use and the effects on skin make nonuse of it a mystery.”

BEHIND THE TERM “BROAD-SPECTRUM” One of the most confusing things about sunscreen is “UVA-versus-UVB.” Sunlight consists of two types of harmful rays that reach the earth: ultraviolet A (UVA) rays and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. Overexposure to either can lead to skin cancer, which is why you need to wear “broad-spectrum” sunscreen, which protects you from both, and reapply it often. The two types of rays are responsible for different, yet equally sinister skin-damaging things.

physical sunscreen reflects the rays

chemical sunscreen absorbs the rays

UVA RAYS: CAUSE AGING These can prematurely age your skin (think A equals aging), leading to wrinkles and age spots. These are also the sneaky ones that can pass through window glass.

UVB RAYS: CAUSE BURNS These are the primary cause of sunburn and are blocked by window glass, which is why you don’t get burned while driving. UVB rays also stimulate melanocyte cells to produce more melanin, which shows up as a burn, tan, freckle, brown or age spot, or hyperpigmentation. >> FOR MORE NEXT-LEVEL SUNSCREENS, VISIT NEWBEAUTY.COM/NEW-SUNSCREENS 062

WHAT IS THE MAGIC NUMBER?

Because the FDA now restricts manufacturers from using the term “sunblock” (no SPF completely blocks the sun), selecting the right SPF can be confusing. So, what number should you be looking for on a bottle?

50+

FOR EVERYDAY MINIMAL EXPOSURE

THE PERFECT NUMBER The American

BIGGER ISN’T ALWAYS BETTER

The Skin Cancer Foundation considers this number (or higher) acceptable protection for normal, everyday activities, as long as it provides broadspectrum protection.

Academy of Dermatology (AAD), as well as most dermatologists, agree that this is the number to use. Also look for one that offers broad-spectrum protection.

The FDA may cap SPF at 50+ due to “insufficient data that it gives more protection,” Hollywood, FL, dermatologist Gary Goldfaden, MD, says.

SUNSCREEN: SEPARATING FACT FROM FICTION

SUNSCREEN IS ESSENTIAL, THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING. BUT, FOR AS MUCH THAT IS SAID ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS MUST-DO STEP, THERE ARE ALSO MANY QUESTIONS AND MISCONCEPTIONS THAT SWIRL AROUND THE TOPIC: WHAT’S ENOUGH? WHAT IS SAFE? WELL, SUMMER IS HERE AND OUR EXPERTS SPELL IT OUT: HERE IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS SUPERIMPORTANT SKIN-CARE STAPLE.

PHYSICAL These sunscreens contain extremely fine particles of minerals that stay on the skin’s surface, which actually creates a barrier to reflect the sun’s rays.

INGREDIENTS TO LOOK FOR

GOOD FOR Supersensitive skin PRO “Physical sunscreens protect skin from the sun by deflecting harmful rays,” says New York dermatologist Michael Shapiro, MD. They also have a tendency to last a little longer on the skin. CON In the past, they often left a white cast on skin, but today’s formulas are more transparent. Some users do find they can go on “thicker.”

THE PHYSICAL VS. CHEMICAL DEBATE: WHICH IS BETTER? CHEMICAL These sunscreens are made of synthetic compounds (manufacturers call them “organic” filters) that absorb ultraviolet radiation.

A lot has been said about the different types of sunscreens, but here’s the secret: Using a broadspectrum sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher is more important than choosing between the two.

GOOD FOR Drier skin types PRO “Chemically filtered sunscreens offer more coverage against both UVA and UVB rays,” says Dr. Shapiro. CON You typically need to wait at least 20 minutes after applying to receive adequate sun protection.

THE BIGGEST MYTHS ABOUT

SUNSCREEN IS MAKEUP A RELIABLE WAY TO GET GOOD SUN PROTECTION? DO YOU NEED TO GO OUT IN THE SUN TO GET YOUR VITAMIN D? WE ASKED THE EXPERTS FOR THE TOP MYTHS WHEN IT COMES TO SUNSCREEN.

MYTH 05

THE INGREDIENTS IN SUNSCREENS CAN PUT YOUR HEALTH AT RISK. The ingredients in sunscreens get a lot of scrutiny, but the AAD stands by this one: Scientific evidence supports the benefits of using sunscreen to minimize short-term and long-term skin damage. Preventing skin cancer and sunburn outweigh unproven claims of toxicity or human health hazard from ingredients in sunscreens.

INSIDE

tip

Dr. Goldfaden says that if you opt for a cream SPF, you should reapply it often. “Sunscreen sometimes breaks down in the sun, washes off or rubs off on towels and clothing. Reapply every hour when in direct sunlight for proper protection.”

MYTH 04

MYTH 01

YOU DON’T NEED TO APPLY EXTRA SPF IF YOUR MAKEUP HAS IT. “Sunscreens don’t work if you rely on your makeup or moisturizers,” says Dr. Anson. “The majority of users significantly underestimate their protection.”

DARKER SKIN TYPES ARE IMMUNE TO SKIN CANCER. Darker skin is not immune to skin cancer, and because of this belief, many non-Caucasians are diagnosed with later, harder-totreat stages of the disease.

MYTH 02

YOU NEED TO GO OUT IN THE SUN TO GET YOUR VITAMIN D.

MYTH 03

“The sun does provide vitamin D, but most people, when out in the sun, overdo it,” says Dr. Shapiro. “You can obtain vitamin D from vitamins and supplements to meet your daily requirements.”

A HIGHER SPF EQUALS MORE PROTECTION. Regardless of the number, there is no sunscreen that can protect 100 percent of the sun’s rays (an SPF of 30 protects 97 percent). Also, according to the AAD, lower-number SPFs last the same amount of time as higher ones.

THE DOCTORS DEBATE:

WHICH FORMULATIONS DO YOU RECOMMEND? Sunscreen preference—especially where formulation is concerned—can be personal. We asked doctors which ones they feel offer the best protection.

066

CHOOSE CREAMS + LOTIONS

COVER UP + SPRAY AWAY

Dr. Shapiro: “I recommend wearing at least SPF 30 to make sure that you are getting full protection. Certain areas are more sensitive, however, and certain areas tend to sweat more, which can lead to accelerated sunblock run-off. Oils attract more sun compared to lotions and creams, so I never suggest those.”

Dr. Goldfaden: “Wear clothes. Shirts, hats, shorts and pants provide the best protection from UV rays, but for sunscreen, go with a spray. Studies show that the particles in spray are so small, allowing them to evenly coat the uneven surface of the epidermis better than creams.”

01 MILKS AND LOTIONS BEST FOR: Sensitive, combination and normal skin types

LIGHT

These are two of the most gentle options, which is why sensitive, combination and normal skin types prefer them. Milk and lotion cleansers boast low amounts of oils and emollients, giving them a light moisturizing effect that doesn’t leave an oily residue on skin. They tend to be water-based and don’t contain many surfactants (chemicals that allow for a formula to foam), so they don’t foam much. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: You won’t get the sudsy experience that you may get with other cleansers, but your skin will be left feeling soft.

HEAVY

02 BALMS BEST FOR: Dry skin Cleansing balms are a newer way to cleanse and are good for those who need moisture because they’re loaded with emollients. “They’re essentially oil-based cleansers, but in a solid form, so they’re more nourishing,” says cosmetic chemist Ni’kita Wilson. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: They go on supersilky and leave your skin feeling hydrated, refreshed and clean.

04 MICELLAR WATERS BEST FOR: Normal and sensitive skin types and those who wear minimal amounts of makeup

Cosmetic chemist Randy Schueller says that oils are good for dry skin because they’re nonstripping and void of detergents and surfactants, which are common in cleansers that foam. “Oil cleansers follow the principle of like dissolving like, meaning that oil dissolves oil on the skin. But, some can leave behind a greasy residue—that’s the biggest difference between a foaming or detergent-based cleanser and an oil-based one.”

Trending these days, micellar water follows a similar philosophy to an oil cleanser, but water is the main ingredient instead of oil. Micellar water contains small micelles, which are tiny bundles of surfactants encased in water that trap dirt, oil and makeup. However, if your skin is oily or you wear a lot of makeup, a micellar water may not leave your skin feeling clean enough and a second round of cleansing with something heavier may be necessary.

WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: Oils don’t give the typical sudsy action that a traditional cleanser provides, but rather an emulsification of the oil when it hits water that makes it turn white. Using an oil doesn’t mean your skin will be left feeling oily—it will be smooth, clean and hydrated.

WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: These are incredibly light (they feel like you’re just wiping water on your skin) and there’s no tingling effect or scent either, but rather more of a refreshing feeling. “You don’t have to wash micellar waters off, but if you do, just use a tissue or wipe,” says Frauke Neuser, senior scientist for Olay.

BEST FOR: Oily and acne-prone skin Clear, water-based gel cleansers are best for oily and acne-prone skin because, “They don’t have many emollients or other ingredients in them that will add more oil to your skin, which oily and acneic skin doesn’t need,” says Wilson. Gels have just the right amount of moisture for these types. Miami dermatologist Janice Lima Maribona likes gel cleansers for prepping skin in the morning to get it ready for moisturizer and other products. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN USING THEM: A clean and soft feeling that may even make your skin tingle and feel a bit dry. Don’t expect any moisture from these, which is why drier skin types may find gels to be too harsh.

LIGHT

08 CREAMS BEST FOR: Dry, mature and normal skin Thicker in nature and creamy to the touch, cream cleansers contain oils, and Wilson says some even have butters that deposit moisture into skin to offset dryness. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: If your skin is right for this type of formulation, it’ll feel soft after you wash, almost like there’s some slip to it. Those with acneic skin may feel that thick creams instigate breakouts, and oily skin types could be left with some slip on their skin, or even a tight feeling.

HEAVY

06 POWDERS BEST FOR: Normal skin

A TRANSFORMING POWDER

Excellent gentle exfoliators, dry powders make use of anything from grains to minerals to cleanse skin. When mixed with water in the palm of your hand, they instantly turn into a paste. Add more water to make the formula watery and runny, and use less if you want it to be thicker. They’re usually free of preservatives, detergents and surfactants, too.

LIGHT

HEAVY

07 FOAMS BEST FOR: Extremely oily skin Foam cleansers have a reputation for being very drying. “Unless you have extremely oily skin, you are better off not using this type,” says celebrity aesthetician Nerida Joy. “Foam gives the illusion that it cleanses really well, but you can’t dry up that much oil with a cleanser. It just dries up the outer layer, which causes congestion underneath.” WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: Most skin types will be left feeling tight and squeaky clean, which is actually a tightening and drying of the skin. “Foams can remove a greasy feel, but anything that makes your skin feel tight and squeaky clean may lead to congestion problems,” says Joy.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND POWERFUL PRODUCTS

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DELIVERY SYSTEM AND A FORMULATION

Delivery systems are important to formulations because they serve as the vehicle to drive ingredients into your skin. “They have an oil and water component that, together, determines how the product looks and feels and how the carrier vehicle releases the ingredients,” says Neuser. There are a handful of delivery systems: liposomes and microcapsules contain small oil droplets that oil-soluble ingredients are packaged in and delivered into skin; microsponge, a water-based system acts like a sponge to encapsulate and release ingredients; time-released systems unleash actives over a period of time; and patch systems rely on a patch. Joy says that if ingredient combinations do not collaborate, then they can not penetrate and benefit the skin.

AN ESSENTIAL LOTION LIGHT

HEAVY

01 GELS AND GEL CREAMS BEST FOR: Oily and acneic skin According to Wilson, lightweight gel moisturizers contain the least amount of oil, which allows them to give hydration without leaving too much residue behind on the skin. “We’re seeing more of them come onto the market. Both oily and acne-prone skin types do well with gel because they don’t necessarily want a moisturizer with oil, but rather one that has nonoil-based hydrators,” says Neuser. Schueller adds that gels tend to be more clear in nature and have a high viscosity without any of the waxy ingredients typically found in lotions and thicker creams. “If you’re prone to greasy skin, you may be better off with a gel moisturizer,” he says. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: Instant refreshment on your skin and sometimes a bit of a cooling effect that dries down matte with no greasy residue.

02 LOTIONS BEST FOR: Nearly every skin type, especially sensitive and normal skin Offering more slip than a gel, lotions are one of the most versatile formulations for hydration. “They are thinner than a cream and can deliver any ingredient to skin,” says Schueller. Low in oil, they can be used on the entire face or to spot-treat an area, which makes them suitable for every skin type. “The only downside to lotion formulations (compared only to oils) is that they require thickeners and stabilizers to prevent them from separating,” adds Schueller. “A lotion for oily skin will have lighter oils at lower levels, whereas a lotion for drier skin may have a higher concentration of heavier oils for more hydration.” Many of them contain petrolatum, which can be noncomedogenic in the sense that it can be formulated loose and open or tightly knit. “It’s all about how the ingredients are combined,” says Joy. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: Light hydration that dries quickly—some even provide a mattifying effect for oily skin types.

THE DIFFERENT ANTI-AGERS LIGHT

BEST FOR: Mature and dehydrated skin

LIGHT

The thickest and heaviest moisturizing formulation available, creams are loaded with the highest amounts of oil to deliver a serious dose of moisture, which is especially beneficial for mature and severely dehydrated skin. Neuser says that creams that contain occlusive ingredients, like petrolatum, create a barrier on the skin so moisture can’t escape. “If your skin doesn’t require a high level of moisture, this is definitely not the right formulation for you.” WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: A surge of moisture that sits on your skin until it’s absorbed. The thicker the cream, the more you’ll have to rub it in and the longer it will take for your skin to drink it up.

04 OILS BEST FOR: Normal to dry skin

WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: Because an oil is heavier than a lotion, but not as heavy as a cream, your skin will feel noticeably hydrated—it can take a few minutes for the oil to fully absorb. Unless your skin is on the drier side, this is one you’ll want to use at night.

01 LOTIONS BEST FOR: Oily, sensitive and normal skin Light in weight, a lotion gives a bit of moisture to skin while also providing anti-aging actives. However, the formulation may contain filling agents and other ingredients that can water down the actives in some cases. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: A lightness or dewiness on your skin that’s quick to absorb—some even leave behind a pretty sheen or healthy-looking glow. HEAVY

02 SERUMS BEST FOR: All skin types The main function of a serum, which can be watery, liquidy or creamy in texture, is to deliver a concentrated dose of anti-aging ingredients into the skin. Heavier than a lotion, but lighter than a cream, serums have some slip to them, but not as much as an oil. “Serums are low in waxes, so companies can load them up with actives at efficacious levels for an intense treatment without penetration barriers in the product,” explains Wilson. Joy adds that they also tend to be less buffered, which allows them to absorb better and penetrate skin at a deeper level.

HEAVY

“Using an oil as a means to hydrate skin works by coating it to prevent moisture loss,” says Schueller. But, just because the formulation is oil-based, doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily going to be greasy or more moisturizing. Most oils are plant-based, which makes them drier in nature, and not too oily, on skin.

03 CREAMS BEST FOR: Dry, mature skin types concerned with effects of aging Whether you use a cream on its own or after a serum to seal in its effects, this is the heaviest option and usually has a moisturizing benefit. “Dry, mature skin types need a lot of moisture, which is why they tend to use heavier anti-aging creams, especially during menopause,” says Neuser. The downside to them: “Only so many anti-aging ingredients can fit into a cream base while still keeping it elegant and efficacious, which is why serums were invented,” says Wilson. WHAT YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU USE THEM: These rich, thick creams are full of moisturizers, so your skin will feel softer and really hydrated. SUMMER 2015

Celebrity nutritionist Paula Simpson explains that while many factors dictate changes in pH levels, some of them are predetermined and others are controlled by diet. “If you’re eating alkaline-rich foods on a daily basis, all areas of your body should fall into more of a balanced pH.” So how do you know if your body is alkaline or not?

THE WORST FOODS YOU CAN EAT INSIDE

tip

If a food doesn’t contain protein, sulfur or minerals, it’s considered a neutral food.

What makes a food alkaline or acidic?

Anything that’s heavily processed, fried, loaded with chemicals, high in refined sugar, starchy, wheat-based or just unhealthy, is a food that is detrimental to your body—consider those the worst possible ones you can eat. “These are the foods that have led us into the health crisis we are in,” says Cacciatore. “The more the food is processed from its natural state, the more unhealthy it is.”

All types of food break down during digestion and leave an ash (the residue that the body uses to extract nutrients to survive) in the stomach before being metabolized. “What determines if a food is acidifying or alkalizing is the type of ash that remains after metabolism,” says Cacciatore. An acid-forming food, which contains components like phosphate and sulfur, becomes acidic during metabolism, and the opposite is true for an alkaline-forming food. “Some foods, like lime, are acidic in their natural state, but when ingested, form an alkaline ash so they’re actually alkalizing.” With alkaline foods, the ash contains components like calcium, magnesium and potassium because the foods themselves do. More acidic ash in the body leads to a greater chance of disease. The more natural the food is, the less ash it produces. Because everyone’s digestion cycle varies, it can take anywhere from four to more than 50 hours for the acid- or alkaline-producing food to fully leave the body.

– Any food that is acidic in its natural state

ACIDIC FOODS

These foods force the body to use its alkaline mineral reserves to neutralize the acid to maintain a proper pH. “If you eat lots of acid-forming foods, your body starts to draw minerals and nutrients from your bones to bring your body back to a more natural state. This puts unnecessary stress on your body,” says Natasha Corrett, founder of honestlyhealthyfood.com. Consuming too many acid-forming foods not only throws your body’s pH off balance, but also impacts how your body is able to regulate itself. A large percentage of Americans have created an acidic environment inside their bodies due to a less-than-healthy diet and consuming too many acid producers like meat, eggs and dairy.


BRIEFS

+ Any food that is neutral in pH and keeps the body in balance

ALKALINE FOODS

Foods that fall under this category allow the body to function at a natural state as intended. Alkaline foods, such as vegetables, are easier for the body to break down and metabolize so nutrients can safely be pulled from them.

S H O U L D YO U T R Y T H E p H D I E T ?

“If you follow an organic, whole-food, nutritionally dense diet that’s 80 percent plant-based and 20 percent animal-based, you’re eating predominantly alkalizing foods. This means your body is fed with massive amounts of nutrition, there’s less toxic buildup and your health is more vibrant all around.” – N ATA L I E C A C C I AT O R E

The benefits

Alkaline foods offer up a whole host of benefits, and one reason why experts support them is for the simple fact that they work against diseases like cancer and osteoporosis. “Your body doesn’t have to work as hard at maintaining its proper pH,” says Cacciatore. Plus, alkaline foods are more nutrient-dense and contain higher amounts of calcium, potassium and magnesium. • You will have less bloating and it will be easier to lose weight • Skin will be clearer and better hydrated • Risk of disease decreases • You will feel more energized and won’t be as tired

The reasons why Elle Macpherson went alkaline

“I’ve learned that an alkaline body is a healthier body. It combats disease and encourages cellular renewal, and therefore it’s anti-aging. I feel that my body works most efficiently when I take The Super Elixir, an alkalizing green supplement.”

“The body functions better with a more balanced pH. My workouts are stronger, I’ve lost weight around my middle, my moods are balanced, I have less sugar cravings, and I just feel on top of my game.”

• Food is more easily broken down so your body can better absorb nutrients and minerals and digest food more easily • Hormones and moods are better balanced

how to do it

MAKING THE CHANGE FROM AN ACIDIC TO AN ALKALINE DIET IS ONE YOU’LL BE HAPPY WITH, BUT IT WILL DEFINITELY TAKE WILLPOWER AND DEDICATION. “YOU NEED TO BE REALISTIC AND MAKE CHOICES THAT MOST EASILY FIT INTO YOUR LIFESTYLE,” SAYS SIMPSON. “ONCE YOU HAVE CONQUERED THE INITIAL STEPS OF FOLLOWING A PH-BALANCED DIET, YOU CAN MAKE MORE CHALLENGING MODIFICATIONS.”

STEP 1: Don’t quit cold turkey. Unless you want to send your body into complete disarray, slowly cut out acid producers and replace them with more alkaline foods. If you go full speed ahead without working your way up to it, you will experience cravings and headaches from withdrawals and will find it to be more of a struggle than it should be.

STEP 2: Eat small amounts of acidforming foods. The body needs a small amount of acid in order to maintain homeostasis. You want to choose healthier options over processed or refined ones. Here’s what to add into your diet and what to avoid: • Instead of red meat, eat seafood • Instead of cow’s milk, drink almond milk • Instead of butter, choose coconut oil spreads • Instead of soda, drink green tea

084

NEWBEAUTY

SUMMER 2015

STEP 3: Make sure you’re following the right percentages. When you’re starting out with a pH-balanced diet, you should eat 60 percent alkaline foods and 40 percent acidic foods. After about one month, you can start to remove more of the acid formers, bumping it down to 20 percent, and eating 80 percent alkaline foods.

STEP 4: Pair properly. Cacciatore explains that what you eat in a single meal has just as much of an impact on your body as the specific foods you combine because each food is digested at a different rate. Fruits and green vegetables metabolize quickly, whereas starches take longer and proteins take the longest.

STEP 5: Be prepared.

In order to successfully follow an alkaline diet (or really any diet for that matter), you need to be prepared and have the right foods on hand so that you don’t end up eating whatever is accessible. Keep plenty of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables in your refrigerator and try to cook in advance, when possible.

Adding greens to your diet, like spinach, kale, spirulina and wheatgrass, can supercharge the benefits of eating alkalinebased foods.

THE BUZZ IN BEAUTY You’ll see a lot of the big UK skin-care and body-care brands in the spas in the area (think Aromatherapy Associates, ESPA and Molton Brown, for starters), and some spas, like Barnsley Spa and Skincare Centre at Barnsley House hotel, are also very big on technology. One of its newest offerings is the CACI microcurrent machine, which claims to firm and tone skin on the face and body. barnsleyhouse.com

In one word, a bath. But, this isn’t your standard tub treatment. The region offers everything from public, Roman-style soaking spots (Thermae Bath Spa is a favorite to both locals and visitors, where a two-hour soak is less than $40) to more private pools and hot tubs—some of them with to-die-for views of the English countryside. Regardless of which scenic view you are looking at, the goal is the same: To experience a sort of skin-saving transformation in the area’s muddy-hot waters. “You have to get a bath if you come to Bath,” says Hall, adding that it’s kind of difficult not to because so many spas really play up this feature at their location—most of them also cater to daily visitors, not just stay-a-few-days guests.

BE SURE TO PACK ESPA is one of the go-to brands in the UK, and a big one in Bath. Its 24-Hour Skin Saviour treatment perfects skin on the body and face with an intense soothing sensation (the secret is a mix of oils) that takes down redness and even irritations. $70, us.espaskincare.com

“Extensions are a quick fix for length and volume without long-term damage.” –STEPHANIE MASON

Extensions are one of the quickest and easiest ways to add volume. Here, a foiling technique, which uses extensions in two different lengths and colors placed back to back for naturallooking highlights, was used. To create the look of bangs, a Showpony Faux Fringe was clipped in. “We gave her even more volume by curling the extensions with a curling iron,” says director of Showpony Hair Extensions Stephanie Mason. “The hair was brushed out and sprayed with a salt spray and hairspray for added texture.”

STYLE AND SET

“If you love your long hair, but you’re tempted to wear a bob, you don’t have to cut your hair—just fake it,” says Liberati. First, tease your hair at the crown to get some height and volume. Next, tie your hair into a loose, low ponytail. “Now fold it under, or roll it, and pin your hair at the nape of your neck with bobby pins.”

With your hair folded under at your neck, spray it in place with hairspray, which will also smooth any flyaways at the back and on the sides. For more stubborn hairs that won’t lie flat, you can pin them with bobby pins. Pull a few longer strands of hair out, especially in the front. “This will give you more of a fresh, fashion-forward look,” says Liberati.

“I love The Honest Company products, and I love that they extend into household products. They have lotions and oils and it is all so great. I use it on my son as well.”

In the unwritten “rule book” shared by coworkers, there is no bigger violation than calling in sick on a Monday. Then, of course, there are the coworkers, those who show up, regardless of how horrible they feel, even on this dreaded post-weekend day. They take the trophy for pulling it together, climbing out of bed, driving to the office, getting work done, and apologizing in the process, so focused—and often sincerely concerned—on not getting everyone else sick in their wake. Connie Britton is part of that group. “The show must go on,” she says, in a raspy, congested voice that is somewhat unrecognizable as she enters our photo shoot. The consummate professional is sick, and, on top of that, mourning the loss of her beloved dog of 14 years. But she shows up on time, ready to work, with a totally engaging personality and ready-to-do-anything attitude that you might expect of someone who has achieved the level of success she has. And in true “mother-first, celebrity-second” fashion, she has her fouryear-old son, Yoby, at her side, enjoying the plastic crocodile toy he brought with him and the infinite obstacle course that the location of the photo shoot, a house in the Hollywood Hills, would provide any child accompanying their mom on a bit of a take-your-child-to-work day.

Throughout the shoot, she only stops to sip some hot tea and vegetable soup she brought with her. She’s even supersensitive about blowing her nose and not messing up her makeup that was just applied, worried it might make even one minute of extra work for the artist. But, through the wardrobe changes, suggested poses, the switching up of lighting settings and all the challenges that come along with a beauty magazine photo shoot, her work ethic remains completely evident, even though you can tell she is just not feeling her best.

PRO STATUS

It has to be your life you are living.”

When we speak a few days later for our interview, she says something that seems to have been weighing on her: “I know you are going to doctor those photos! I felt so sick that day; I am really sorry.” She pauses for a minute and switches gears to make it less about her and more about a bigger picture she’s obviously very passionate about— one that goes way beyond how she may or may not look on the cover. “But people need to know that! Everything they see from Hollywood, on television, in movies and in magazines is doctored, it’s not real.” “I really don’t want to feed into that. The best advice I can give to any woman, or any young girl, or even my younger self, is to not give in to that pressure. Find your own value. Know your body. Know what works for you. I live in this world—we all do—where there are these unrealistic expectations for women. There is so much pressure, but we do have a choice. It has to be your life you are living. I try to carry that philosophy into every aspect of my life.”

CHARACTER TRAITS

And her life is an interesting one. She’s held every kind of job from aerobic instructor (“That one shows my age,” she laughs) to a current gig as UN Goodwill Ambassador. And then there’s that whole other “side project” she has: her acting career. In more recent years, Connie has emerged as a seasoned Hollywood veteran—someone who has stuck it out in the spotlight through the good and the bad and come out on the other side to tell some good tales, earning terrific reviews and nominations, and discovering the secret to looking better with age in the process. And somewhere along the way she has managed to accomplish what every actor dreams of: maintaining a growing resume of coveted roles.

We slather ourselves with lotions and potions that are meant to make us look better, but we have to feel good that they aren’t harming us in the process.”

SPA RITUAL

“I try to be ‘centering’ with everything I do. I love the spa and the rituals. But, I have a hectic schedule and I’m a single mom, so it’s hard to fit it in. Any spa time I get is a special treat.”

07

“Right now I am working on American Crime Story with Ryan Murphy and I am playing Faye Resnick. The two of us are so different in so many ways, but I found that little thread that connects us. And all of a sudden, I was like, ‘I get you Faye! I get you girl!’ I have to have that in order to do a good job.” “I try to find a connection to all the characters I play. One little thread of connection that ties the two of us,” she says. “I need that to play the characters truly.”

CRACKING THE CODE

But it’s that connection—not just to the characters she plays, but to people in general—that makes Connie someone you just want to talk to for a little longer to find out just what makes her truly successful: happiness. “I am really happy where I am. Your 40s are a great decade to be in. You sort of live your whole life worrying about the ‘Big 40.’ But, for me, it is a full and fruitful time. My body is still in good shape, but it’s more about the wisdom for me. If you serve your spirit, all of a sudden at this age, life is less scary, less overwhelming. Maybe that’s the whole secret to life. It’s not that bad getting older, you can enjoy it.” “I made a lot of mistakes when I was in my 20s, and got a lot of experience. But that’s the luxury of being in your 20s and 30s—you can trip and fall, make mistakes and pick yourself up again. That’s what gets you to a certain peace when you are older. Be patient, make mistakes; it makes you who you are later.”

PRODUCT I WON’T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT

08

“I have a friend who is a video journalist and she goes to the most horrible, war-torn places in the world. And she always tells me: ‘Just bring lip gloss—always. It is that one thing that cheers you up and makes you feel better.’”

And, proving that her 40s are truly a rewarding time, she is also breaking the stereotypes about aging actors being out of work. Connie is about to enter into her fourth season as country music star Rayna Jaymes on ABC’s Nashville (a role for which she has received an Emmy and Golden Globe nom), and has a summer film lineup that includes the Sundance favorite, Me and Earl and The Dying Girl, and American Ultra, with FX miniseries American Crime Story: The People v.

“I only ever saw my mom use Dove Soap her entire life. It was really that ‘less is more’ philosophy. And, while I don’t totally find that to be true, I think the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

ADVICE FROM THE EXPERTS

01 YES

YES

02

STRESS CAN LEAD TO BREAKOUTS Stress does nothing good for your skin. “It can cause hives, acne and other skin problems,” says Westchester, NY, dermatologist David E. Bank, MD. “Increased stress leads to an increase of the pro-inflammatory stress hormone, cortisol, which can bring about acne and vessel constriction. When this happens, there’s also less bloodflow to your skin, making it look sallow and dull.” So, every time you get stressed out (the stress needs to be present for a prolonged period of time, not just a few hours), cortisol spikes within your body, ultimately affecting your skin.

THE FIX: In order to get your skin under control, you need to regulate your stress—either through working out, meditation or anything else that helps you calm down. In the meantime, keeping your pores as clean as possible with a purifying mask and retinol, will help prevent dead skin cells and oil from becoming clogged inside them.

While a little bit of soy here and there isn’t usually detrimental to your skin, overconsumption can be problematic. Boston dermatologist Ranella Hirsch, MD, explains that soy contains isoflavones that can mimic estrogens, and some experts believe that this may worsen breakouts. “Excessive amounts of soy can influence the body’s production of estrogen,” says Chico, CA, dermatologist Kafele Hodari, MD. When soy is the cause of breakouts, you’re likely to see large, nodular-like pimples on the bottom part of your face, often running along your jawline, on your chin or around your mouth. “Skin is an end organ of whatever you put into your body, and poor dietary choices can show,” says Dr. Hirsch.

THE FIX: Try to cut out, or cut back on, your intake of soy in all forms (tofu, soy milk, soybeans, etc.). But, if you can’t break the habit, you’ll need to counteract the effects with an anti-acne product. SPOT TREAT AS NEEDED

If you can’t pinpoint the problem, you may require some medical advice. A dermatologist, who has a good understanding of your unique skin issues, may advise using a prescription-strength cream, or even antibiotics, which may be just what your skin needs.

HOW BAD IS YOUR SWEET TOOTH? Sugar is a known culprit of inflammation, which causes premature aging, dullness and acne. “Too much sugar can dehydrate skin, so stay away from it if you want your skin to look youthful, supple and dewy,” says aesthetician Marianne Kehoe of Marianne Kehoe Skin Studio in Los Angeles. Dr. Hodari adds, “Sugar causes a degradation process that can damage proteins, including collagen, and damaged collagen makes skin appear more lackluster and wrinkly.”

DON’T OVERLOAD YOUR SKIN

THE FIX: While it’s OK to eat (natural) sugar in moderation, it’s best to limit your consumption of it and try to avoid white, refined and processed sugar at all costs. You’ll also want to up your ante against glycation (an internal process that triggers inflammation with sugar intake) with products that work to strengthen and stimulate new collagen.

Anti-acne products can do wonders for your skin when used properly. Never use retinol during the day—only at night—because the sun will sensitize your skin. “I often see patients with isolated breakouts who go overboard trying to get one pimple under control and then end up with skin that’s red, flaky and itchy. They mix too many products together that should be used on their own. If you use Retin-A and add in irritants and exfoliators, it’s a recipe for trouble,” says Dr. Hirsch.

A safe and gentle at-home device that relies on LED blue light therapy to tackle problem skin, Quasar MD Blue kills bacteria in your pores without irritating it. $595, babyquasar.com

THE FIX: Kehoe says that drying out your skin with harsh products is not the solution. “There are products with less-harsh ingredients that act as good alternatives to benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, but won’t damage or irritate your skin. I like tea tree oil, flower leaf stem extract, olive and basil leaf, and white grapefruit,” she adds. Also, make sure that you don’t overtreat your skin—you’re better off using just one product that you know works to fight a pimple rather than creating your own concoction.

FRAGRANCE-FREE ISN’T ALWAYS BETTER

FORENSIC SKIN CARE

While certain ingredients can cause skin to become red and reactive, one thing that most of us don’t realize is that fragrance-free products can do the same thing. “In theory, you would think that using a fragrance-free product would be suitable for those with sensitive skin, but not always,” says Dr. Hirsch. “Fragrancefree isn’t always the best option because there can be a masking fragrance in the product that can be the culprit of a reaction. Choosing something unscented, without fragrance or perfume, is a better choice.”

THE FIX: Swap your fragrancefree products for those that are truely unscented. If that doesn’t help alleviate your reactive skin, see your dermatologist. TRY A GENTLE CLEANSER

If you’ve tried to narrow it down and still can’t figure out what is making your skin sensitive and irritated, you may want to ask your dermatologist or allergist to perform an allergy test. It just may be that an unknown ingredient is lurking in your product that’s causing your skin issues. In some cases, topical steroids may be necessary, too.

CLEANSE YOUR SKIN THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY If makeup removers leave your skin in bad shape, Dr. Hirsch says to find out whether or not they contain formaldehyde, especially MI formaldehyde. “Most people don’t realize that something like this can be worsening their skin, but it easily can.”

CHEMICAL PEELS LAUNCHED IN:

1960S WHAT THEY ARE Relatively quick procedures (think 30 minutes or so) that use skin-perfecting acids such as salicylic, glycolic, lactic and retinoic to exfoliate dead skin for a smoother, healthier, prettier complexion. “Chemical peels can only provide extremely dramatic results if they are done very deep within the skin. Peels tend to be slightly less expensive than other options,” says New York dermatologist Gervaise Gerstner, MD.

THE PRODUCT THAT MIMICS IT LAUNCHED IN:

2014 Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel, a safe, weekly at-home peel sparked by professionalstrength in-office peels; $110, sephora.com

WHAT WE THINK OF IT “This peel gets points for two reasons: It was easy to use and didn’t sting or leave my skin red. The first time I used it, it shrunk a pimple on my chin in half overnight. After using it weekly, I noticed clearer, smoother and brighter skin—even my aesthetician commented on how good my skin looked.”

Employing a blend of antioxidants, 15 different acids (glycolic, lactic, mandelic, citric, salicylic acids and beyond), peptides and retinol, this two-step kit gradually improves fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, discoloration, dryness, and dullness—the more you use it, the better your skin looks. To apply, first slip on the enclosed headband, then wipe the presoaked pads across your skin until they become completely dry. Let it sit for three to five minutes, and then apply the firming peptide milk, a lightweight serum of sorts that acts as a neutralizer and also enhances the effectiveness of the acids. The biggest point of distinction: In-office peels have a higher acid pH and a professional administers them.

2003 WHAT THEY ARE Injectable products that contain synthetic hyaluronic acid gel (similar to what’s found naturally in the body) to smooth out wrinkles and lines. “Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvéderm Plus and Juvéderm Voluma, are some of my favorite tools. They plump up skin to give it back its youthful fullness,” says Dr. Gerstner.

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Serum, a topical treatment that helps create smoother, softer skin; $25, walgreens.com Loaded with hyaluronic acid and red marine algae, this hydrating serum works to really moisturize your skin so that it looks fuller, plumper and younger. Borrowing upon the notion of how in-office injectables rely on hyaluronic acid to plump skin and fill in lines and wrinkles, this gel-like serum leaves skin feeling soft and firm.

WHAT WE THINK OF IT “This serum felt really good on my skin and left it feeling baby-soft and smooth. But, it didn’t rival the results of an injectable hyaluronic acid—I could still see my fine lines after using this product.”

As the skin heals, new collagen is created, which results in smoother, younger-looking skin with a lot less sun damage. “Nonablative lasers are my go-to treatment because they are not that expensive, have minimal downtime and are extremely effective,” says Dr. Gerstner.

Harnessing the same nonablative fractional laser technology used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons to resurface skin (it creates microwounds in the skin just like an in-office laser does), the device, which needs to be used for at least 10 minutes each day, five days per week for 12 weeks, treats the entire face, even the areas around the eyes, as opposed to just one area. It sends tiny laser beams of energy below the skin’s surface to stimulate new collagen to be made in order to rebuild and strengthen skin. Suitable for all skin colors, the tool also claims to smooth lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin appearance, with visible results in two weeks. 116

WHAT WE THINK OF IT “Although it left my skin a bit red immediately after using it, the overall result was smoother, better-looking skin. I also liked that it shut off automatically after each use.”

Similar to professional microdermabrasion treatments offered at doctors’ offices, this device uses vacuum suction and one of five different included spinning discs to gently exfoliate skin so that it’s more even in tone and texture. The more you use it, the less apparent lines, wrinkles and pores become.

WHAT WE THINK OF IT “Unlike in-office microdermabrasion, which you can definitely feel as it is being done on your skin, this tool felt very gentle when I glided it across my face. Plus, it didn’t leave my skin red or uncomfortable either.”

WHAT IT IS A noninvasive, anti-acne treatment that utilizes the power of blue light to kill the bacteria that lead to breakouts in two to five treatments over the course of a few weeks.

WHAT THEY ARE Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are injected by your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to wrinkle-laden areas like the outer corners of your eyes, between and above your brows and in your forehead (as well as other areas of your face) to temporarily weaken the nerves used for muscle contraction that cause wrinkles to form. “Botox blocks the nerves from stimulating the muscles so they don’t pull on the skin and make creases. Over time, wrinkles become less obvious, resulting in a more youthful appearance, which is ultimately what patients want,” says Houston plastic surgeon Fabian Worthing, MD.

This easy-to-use device employs non UV-sourced blue light to calm inflamed skin and flare-ups and kill acne-causing bacteria in one three-minute, pain-free (you’ll feel some mild warmth on your skin) session (use it as needed). To see results even faster, pair the light with the Blemish Serum that’s packaged within the kit, which will help speed up the healing process within your skin.

This potent day-and-night cream relies on the wrinkle-reducing properties of three peptides, which work like Botox to slow muscle contraction, and a unique delivery system to smooth out lines and wrinkles that are caused by overactive muscles (think the forehead, between the brows and the outer corners of the eyes). The philosophy: to relax wrinkles, similar to how Botox does it, for a more youthful—not frozen—appearance.

WHAT WE THINK OF IT “I had three pimples on my face and used this blue light tool for two nights straight. After the second day, any swelling and redness were almost gone. And by day three, the pimples had completely disappeared.”

WHAT WE THINK OF IT “This lightweight cream was like Photoshop! It didn’t magically erase every single wrinkle, but it did smooth out my skin, and it even made my pores look smaller as soon as I applied it.”

CLAIM TO FAME

THE QUEEN OF LUXE LIFESTYLE FRAGRANCES

MAKING MY MARK: “I started my fragrance career in 1992 when my brother-in-law, an interior designer, developed a home fragrance that he considered the finishing touch on a home. His clients liked the product so much that my husband and I took the concept and launched Slatkin & Co. At the time, home fragrance was nothing like what it is today. In 2008, I launched NEST Fragrances, a luxury lifestyle fragrance brand.”

STANDING APART: “The NEST brand is different because of the tremendous appeal it possesses. Consumers are drawn to the products by the name, the branding and the packaging. We deliver extraordinary fragrances at an attractive price point—that recipe makes our products irresistible. We use the finest ingredients blended with proprietary formulas that we have been refining for more than two decades.”

SMELL GOOD, FEEL GOOD: “When you wear a fragrance, you create a mood around you that impacts anyone who comes into your personal space. That same concept applies to your home. Fragrance has the ability to influence your mood and stir your emotions like nothing else.

Sally Hershberger CELEBRITY HAIRSTYLIST

CLAIM TO FAME

FIRST CELEBRITY HAIRSTYLIST TO COMMAND $800 FOR A HAIRCUT

STARTING OUT: “It was the ’70s and it was really fun in California. It was a blast, but my parents told me I had to go to school or get a job. I was working at Armando, a cool little salon on Melrose. One of his clients was Olivia NewtonJohn and she needed a stylist to go on tour with her. I was 20 years old at the time, flying around the world doing her hair for concerts. On that tour I met Herb Ritts, who tested me for a cover and propelled me into the celebrity world of hairstyling. I was working with all of the big supermodels, and before I knew it, I was doing the hair for the cover of every major magazine. I knew I had made it when I walked into a bookstore and I had done the hair of every model on every magazine on the racks.”

LOVE WHAT YOU DO: “I started my career with celebrities and got into shooting fashion before coming back to my roots. Some of it was luck, but it was probably more that I was focused and really knew how to do hair, which I’ve been obsessed with since I was a little girl. Being in the right place at the right time helps, as does being innovative. I always did something no one else was doing—textured hair—which kept me in the race. I love where my career has gone.”

ACROSS ALL BOARDS: “Right now, I’m relaunching my 24K line and I feel like I’m 100 percent on target. I have a lot more knowledge today than I did in the past with other hair brands. But in order to be successful, you have to deliver something unique and different.”

WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVE: “A lot has changed in the hair industry over the years, but one of the most important things we are seeing now is that women are caring for their hair the right way. They’re more comfortable not shampooing daily and are wearing their hair more naturally instead of being a slave to straightening it. Hair always looks better when you enhance its natural texture—it’s cool and sexy that way and women have embraced that.” LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD: “When I opened my own salon, I was charging $800 for a haircut because I had no fear and knew my worth. Everyone was balking at the idea, but I know how I feel when my hair looks good, and I knew other women had to feel the same way. In my opinion, hair is the most important asset that you can easily change and manipulate. It makes all the difference in your look.”

SPREAD THE LOVE: “I’m all about building a good team of people around me and teaching them everything possible. Some of the most famous names in the industry—Chris McMillan, Mark Townsend, Marie Robinson, and Tracey Cunningham—worked with me. I would train them on technique and give them celebrity clients—I’m not afraid of giving anything away. Keeping all the best talent under one umbrella doesn’t always work because someone who truly has something to offer is going to want to establish their own fame. I’d rather help them do that and be a mentor.” I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: “The texturizing paste, mousse and dry shampoo (it gives the coolest texture because it isn’t made with water) from my 24K line. And, ColorWow, which is one of the best root touch-up products out there—it really works.”

Deborah Szekely CLAIM TO FAME

THE PIONEER OF THE WELLNESS WORLD FEEDING THE SOUL: “Back in 1940, I was newly married to Edmond Szekely and we decided to start a health camp in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico. We were both health nuts (I grew up that way) and thought that by teaching others how to eat and exercise and live a life more in tune with nature, we might be able to feed ourselves. We put the word out there—my husband was well-known for his book Cosmos, Man and Society—and charged guests $17.50 for a weeklong stay. That’s how we established Rancho La Puerta, a true destination health and wellness spa retreat.” THE IMPORTANCE OF SPA: “Spa experiences are a key part of a healthy lifestyle. There’s no miracle diet, no miracle food and no miracle cure. The human body is smart—it has certain requirements that can’t be circumvented. Destination spa programs retune your lifestyle in a natural way, getting your body back in line with healthy movement and nutrition.”

SPA-GOERS GET SAVVY: “The spa client and spa industry have changed in wonderful ways over the years. Spa-goers are getting smarter. Years ago, we would talk about the importance of eating locally grown organic foods and most guests had no idea what we were talking about. Today, everyone understands.” PREVENT TO CORRECT: “The spa, health and wellness industries continue to grow. Wellness is the only effective antidote to the growth of all that’s unhealthy in our lives today. We live in a culture that’s obsessed with curing something that’s gone wrong, rather than simply preventing it in the first place.” SIMPLE PLEASURES: “I absolutely love napping. I am a confirmed napper and a massage just puts me out. When I wake from a nap, I’m refreshed, renewed and ready to grab the tiger’s tail once more.”

CLAIM TO FAME CATAPULTED “NAKED MAKEUP” INTO A GLOBAL PHENOMENON OVERCOMING OBSTACLES: “With a name like Urban Decay, it was hard for us to get people to take us seriously at first. When we were trying to make a name for the brand, a lot of people in the industry didn’t get the connection between beauty and urban decay. Today, enough people know about the line and have experienced it to know how high-quality it is. We continue to evolve, but we always stay true to the essence of what Urban Decay is: beauty with an edge.” WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MAKEUP: “Makeup is about self-expression, not covering your flaws. It’s a powerful tool for transformation that lets you tell the world who you are. I love the fact that you can use makeup to change your entire look, but you can easily wash it off when you’re done.”

GOING NAKED: “The idea for the infamous Naked palettes came about when my product development director and I asked each other, “If you could take four eye shadows to a desert island, what would they be?” We put the colors next to each other on the table and they looked so beautiful, so we decided to make them into a palette. We had to refine it, but in the end we had these pairings that we loved. The palettes have been the most popular ones in the industry—it’s an exciting place to be and we’ve gained so many new customers from it. We call the Naked collection the ‘gateway drug’ to Urban Decay. The customers that come to us through a Naked palette become so loyal.”

CLAIM TO FAME MADE THE INDOOR CYCLING WORKOUT A CULT CLASSIC THE BACKSTORY: “My passion for indoor cycling began in 1997, when I first discovered it at my neighborhood gym. I was immediately hooked—the classes were empowering and cathartic, which filled an emotional and mental void. And, of course, there was the physical component. I started teaching my own classes and built a following. My dream was to open a studio, which came true when one of my riders said, ‘I’ll back you,’ and we founded a well-known indoor cycling brand. I left in 2009 to start Flywheel, which brought indoor cycling to a whole new level.” THE POWER OF TECHNOLOGY: “We wanted to offer riders the most efficient workout possible, so we developed on-bike and in-studio technology, which lets riders track their performance in real-time. With a small computer screen called a ‘tech pack’ affixed to each Flywheel bike, riders know exactly where their torque (resistance) and RPM (speed) should be, allowing them to get the most out of their rides.”

MUSIC MATTERS: “Just as our instructors keep riders engaged and focused, so does our music. Our curated playlists are the driving force in each ride, dictating the energy in the stadium. Crafting a playlist is inspiring and gives me such a creative outlet.” I KNEW I MADE IT WHEN: “We sold out our first class, just weeks after opening our doors. The other telltale sign was overhearing cocktail party conversations, which included Flywheel-coined terminology as if it had been part of their vocabulary for ages!” NEVER COAST: “Our motto, ‘Never Coast’ is about always challenging ourselves and understanding that the moment we start slacking, our workout and its effectiveness become compromised. It’s a motto that can be applied to many facets of our lives, reminding us to always challenge ourselves, never doubt and give it our all.”

CLAIM TO FAME INITIATOR OF THE INFLAMMATION THEORY + FORERUNNER IN THE COSMECEUTICAL ARENA FROM DERMATOLOGIST TO SKIN-CARE IMPRESARIO: “My initial quest was to find ways to stop, prevent and reverse the effects of inflammation in my dermatology patients, which laid the foundation for the Perricone MD skin-care line. Because I treat underlying inflammation as the causative factor, my research focuses on utilizing antioxidants, which act as natural anti-inflammatories, from nutritional substances in topical formulations.” INGREDIENT INNOVATOR: “My goal has always been to treat aging rather than cover it up. Some of my favorite antiaging breakthroughs include alpha lipoic acid, DMAE and acyl-glutathione—I was first to introduce topical neuropeptides. My latest discovery is OVM, the new eggshell membrane– based topical.”

MY SUPERSTAR: “I’m most proud of my Cold Plasma line, which utilizes a unique, patented ionic suspension system. This new and highly efficient delivery system presents an environment in which the skin cell has access to the vital nutrients it needs. If that cell does not need the nutrients, they will not be utilized. The proprietary nutrients and delivery system of this formula show an increase in the production of the molecules that form the matrix of the dermis, resulting in a significantly firmer and smoother appearance to the skin, including the eye area.” I KNEW I MADE IT WHEN: “My first book, The Wrinkle Cure, hit number one on The New York Times best-seller list.”

And, just because a patient is younger, doesn’t automatically make them fit for a procedure either. Before you step foot into an operating room, your plastic surgeon needs to make sure you meet the pre-surgery checklist to minimize the risk of complication and ensure a healthy recovery. “Aesthetic surgery is real surgery and can involve real risks,” says Houston plastic surgeon Henry Mentz, MD. Problems can arise when nonboard-certified doctors perform procedures because they are less likely to “check you out”—they don’t hold to the same standards and may not take your health into consideration. If your health isn’t in good standing, you can compromise your results, and ultimately, your life.

You should have a good idea of your health status, but just in case you don’t, your plastic surgeon can request a full medical checkup to assess where you stand. Hiding health conditions from your doctor won’t do anything but hurt you.

If you’re healthy enough for surgery, age doesn’t mean anything. I’ve had patients in their 70s and 80s who are great candidates for plastic surgery. —WEST ORANGE, NJ, PLASTIC SURGEON MOKHTAR ASAADI, MD

A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SURGERY As long as your doctor has fully assessed your health status and deemed you healthy, surgery can be performed. Just because you are older, doesn’t mean you can’t undergo an elective procedure. As long as you have realistic expectations and realize what can and can’t be achieved, it can be done.

INSIDE

tip

If you are a smoker, your plastic surgeon may not operate on you until you’ve quit because smoking increases problems with healing and can leave you with bad scars. “All patients should stop smoking at least four weeks before surgery and not resume until four weeks afterward,” says San Diego plastic surgeon Juan Carlos Fuentes, MD. It’s important to check with your doctor for their specific recommendations.

SUSAN / AGE 65

WHAT COULD GO WRONG

AT ANY AGE

YOU MIGHT ASSUME THAT SOMEONE OLDER MAY HAVE MORE MEDICAL ISSUES THAT CAN HINDER THEM FROM HAVING PLASTIC SURGERY AND GARNERING GOOD RESULTS. BUT, AGE ISN’T THE REAL FACTOR HERE—YOUR HEALTH IS WHAT MAKES YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SURGERY. NO MATTER YOUR AGE, KEEPING CRITICAL HEALTH INFORMATION FROM YOUR SURGEON CAN LEAD TO PROBLEMS DURING AND AFTER SURGERY THAT MAY NOT BE EASY TO FIX.

If you are allergic to anesthesia, you could experience respiratory depression, which could lead to severe complications.

SEVERE COMPLICATIONS

KIDNEY FAILURE If you have severe kidney problems, you could experience kidney failure. Dr. Fuentes says that if the patient already has poor kidney function, the stress of a surgery can trigger kidney failure.

RESPIRATORY ARREST DEFORMITIES If you have sleep apnea, you could experience respiratory arrest. Sleep

If you have a preexisting infection, deformities may develop. Deformities tend to arise when the wrong procedure is done, the procedure is done inappropriately, infection occurs, or the body can’t handle surgery or its recovery.

NERVE DAMAGE

When nerves are damaged or further damaged in surgery, it becomes difficult, and sometimes impossible, to make facial expressions and the eyes or mouth may droop (this can happen at any age).

apnea patients can encounter complications with surgery because any strong narcotics or painkillers that are taken can lead to respiratory arrest. “Procedures can be done, but overnight monitoring is crucial,” says Eugene, OR, plastic surgeon Mark Jewell, MD.


BRIEFS ARE YOU EVER TOO OLD FOR PLASTIC SURGERY?

DEPRESSION What doctors consider most While every aspect of your heath is important, when it comes to surgery, the condition of your heart is one of the biggest determining factors of being healthy or not.

If you have heart issues, you could have a heart attack or abnormal heart activity. “Conditions such as significant heart disease can limit your ability to undergo surgery,” says Lake Mary, FL, plastic surgeon Edward Gross, MD. Your surgeon should obtain a proper cardiac evaluation and medical clearance from your cardiologist or primary physician, as this condition increases the risk for complications.

If you suffer from a mental illness, you could sink into a depression. The stress (mentally and physically) from surgery, mixed with anesthesia, painkillers and the inability to resume your day-to-day life (during healing), can cause those who have a psychiatric illness to experience extreme anxiety and depression, as well as exacerbated symptoms.

CARDIAC ISSUES

If you are overweight, you could develop an infection or delayed healing. Studies show that overweight patients are more likely to face complications after their surgeries. That is why it’s recommended to be close to your ideal weight and in good physical health.

DIABETIC COMA

If you have uncontrolled diabetes levels, it can potentially lead to a diabetic coma. When diabetes is not kept in check, it can lead to post-surgical infections, or even worse, a diabetic coma. “When diabetic patients do not have control of their glucose levels in their blood and add the stress of surgery, those levels can rise and lead to a diabetic coma,” says Dr. Fuentes.

EVERY PATIENT AT EVERY AGE, YOUNG OR OLD, SHOULD HAVE THEIR PLASTIC SURGEON COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING; IF NOT, THEY’RE PROBABLY SETTING THEMSELVES UP FOR DISASTER LATER ON. DR. GROSS ADDS THAT BESIDES A PATIENT’S HEALTH HISTORY, THEIR MEDICATIONS, ALLERGIES, PSYCHOLOGICAL MAKEUP AND MOTIVATIONS FOR SURGERY NEED TO BE ASSESSED AS WELL.

A full physical examination. Any ethical plastic surgeon will perform one to obtain an accurate medical history. “For patients over the age of 50, clearance for surgery by their own physician is recommended, too,” says Dr. Mentz.

When your doctor won’t do your surgery Some medical conditions will deter your plastic surgeon from operating on you. “With uncontrolled diabetes, blood coagulation issues, high blood pressure, and extreme poor liver or renal function, the risk of complication these conditions carry is too high and does not justify aesthetic surgery,” says Dr. Fuentes. If your plastic surgeon doesn’t deem you an ideal candidate, these options can be considered:

Disclose preexisting medical issues. “Patients need to be forthcoming about what they take, including overthe-counter meds, vitamins and supplements, and any allergies they have. Disclose everything so that your doctor has an understanding of your health and addresses any issues prior to surgery,” says Dr. Jewell.

A blood test. According to Dr. Fuentes, patients need some sort of pre-op blood test. “This checks several parameters including cholesterol levels, anemia, liver and kidney function, and coagulation time.”

DID YOU KNOW? According to La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, a larger percentage of elderly people are embracing plastic surgery. “Physiological age is more important than chronological,” he says. “If you are in good medical condition and are in an accredited facility with an appropriately trained plastic surgeon, your risk of complications is no higher than the younger population.”

1. Instead of fat grafting, try injectables or fillers. “This isn’t an alternative for everyone, but the use of the right fillers in the right areas can give great improvement,” says Dr. Jewell. 2. Instead of liposuction, try a noninvasive fat fighter such as CoolSculpting or Liposonix.

THE PROBLEM

THE FIX

Your brows are thinning and starting to look patchy.

Cover up patchy areas with brow products.

WHY IT’S HAPPENING Houston dermatologist Jennifer Segal, MD, says many things can cause the brows to thin including aging, overplucking and certain medical conditions (alopecia areata and thyroid disease are two) and medications. “A dermatologist can advise about the hair loss pattern and evaluate and treat any underlying medical conditions,” adds Dr. Segal.

If the patchy areas are bald, fill them in with brow powder or gel, which will look more natural than a pencil (it can make brows look drawn in). “Match the product to your brows or hair, whichever is lighter, and apply it with a hard, angled eyebrow brush,” says Umbreen Sheikh, founder of Wink Brow Bar in New York.

Aging, excessive plucking, and/or medical conditions may be to blame.

Years of overplucking your brows can damage the hair follicle, making it difficult to grow them back.

Blemishes can crop up in and around your brows for a variety of reasons.

Your genes may be the cause of pigment loss in your brows, resulting in gray hair.

If one of your brows sits higher than the other, in-office treatments can help.

Find your perfect brow product PENCILS These are good for minor touch-ups, like slightly elongating the tail of a brow that’s a bit too short, and are easier to control. Look for pencils with a spoolie brush on one end, which allows you to brush your brows upward and blend the color through.

The right product for your brows will depend on the look you’re trying to achieve and the problems you’re trying to solve.

POWDERS Requiring skill to apply, these go on best with a stiff angled brush. “Powders can make brows look darker and more dramatic,” says Jessica Johnson, brow expert at Yves Durif Salon in New York. “They aren’t as forgiving if you make a mistake, but they’re the best for getting a more defined brow.”

GELS Tinted gels can cover gray hairs and make brows darker, as well as hold them in place (they also make clear versions). “These are good if you have enough brow hair and are happy with your existing shape. They’re essentially mascara for your brows,” says Johnson. MORE > SUMMER 2015

THE PROBLEM

You’ve overplucked your brows and now they’re too thin. WHY IT’S HAPPENING “The trauma of repeated plucking over a prolonged period of time can damage the hair follicle and hinder normal healthy hair growth, causing brow hair to grow back thinner,” says Dr. Segal.

WHAT TO USE A waterproof hybrid formula that blends a cream, a gel, a powder and a stain into one, IT Cosmetics Build-A-Brow tames stray brow hairs and fills in patchy areas simultaneously. And, it won’t fade throughout the day. $24, itcosmetics.com

THE FIX

Fill them in and get them shaped by a pro. Get your brows professionally shaped so they can get back on track and look more full. In between appointments, Johnson suggests filling in your brows with a colored brow product to resist the urge to tweeze. “Pencils are the most userfriendly for beginners. A brow specialist can select the best color and product for you and give you pointers on how to apply it,” she says. If you’re choosing products yourself, look for those that are a bit lighter than your current hair color.

You’re experiencing breakouts in and around your brows.

WHY IT’S HAPPENING Blemishes in this area can be caused by a variety of factors including oil or dead skin cells that are blocking the hair follicle, reactions to makeup or skin-care products, or ingrown hairs.

You’re seeing gray hairs and products won’t hide them.

WHY IT’S HAPPENING As pigment is lost, brow hairs grow in gray, or even white. “It may be genetically predetermined as to whether or not your brows will turn gray, and if it will be just a few hairs or the whole brow,” says Beverly Hills, CA, dermatologist Zein Obagi, MD. If your parents had gray brows at your age, you may too. INSIDE

Want a more natural way to grow better brows? Taksey says to mix organic castor oil with organic coconut oil and apply it to your brows with a clean mascara wand each night. “Some of my clients have been doing this for years and started seeing tons of hair growth after about six months of use.”

THE FIX

Cover pesky grays by tinting your eyebrows. WHAT TO USE RevitaLash Hi-Def Tinted Brow Gel features a semi-translucent tint that masks gray hairs and a dual-ended applicator—a spoolie, a styling brush and a comb—that helps you achieve a perfect shape. $32, revitalash.com

Gray brows are an instant ager. Many experts agree that eyebrow tinting (it uses dye with a lower concentration of peroxide than what is used on the hair on your head) is the best solution. “Tinting lasts up to six weeks and costs around $20,” says Sheikh. “There is no harm in dyeing your brows, and you can always fill them in between appointments. But, if you use hair dye on your brows instead, know that it can make them look darker than desired and it can also stain your skin.” MORE > SUMMER 2015

You have asymmetrical eyebrows and one sits higher than the other.

Nonsurgical in-office treatments can help even them out.

WHY IT’S HAPPENING A common concern among many women is uneven, asymmetric brows that are especially evident in photos. Dr. Obagi says that the left side of the face is not identical to the right, so uneven brows may be asymmetrical by nature. “They may also be caused by skin, bone, muscle and fat discrepancies in the underlying structure and support of your brows,” he adds.

“Injecting a hyaluronic acid filler beneath the brow and in the temples can recreate support in the area. Or, Botox can be used to raise or lower the positioning of one of the brows so they match better,” says Dr. Segal. Another option is Ultherapy, a skin-tightening treatment. “It can be used to lift the brows, which can help with asymmetries, as well as enhance the overall quality of the skin in the area,” says Dr. Obagi.

celebrity brows THE BEST SHAPES

DO YOU NEED A BROWLIFT? If your eyebrows are asymmetrical or sit too low, you may benefit from a browlift, which will surgically correct the tissue and muscles beneath your brow for a more even, youthful look.

Whether you prefer a strong, bushy brow or a thinner one with a high arch, these celebrities have some of the best brows in the business and are a great source of inspiration. Keep in mind that your natural arch, brow position and hair thickness play a role in what you’ll be able to pull off.

WHO THEY’RE GOOD FOR: Square and oval faces “A thick brow gives the face a more youthful appearance,” says Taksey.

WHO THEY’RE GOOD FOR: Those with prominent features Sheikh likes round brows for faces with strong bone structures because they soften hard features.

WHO THEY’RE GOOD FOR: Round or heart-shape faces The high peak of the brow opens the eyes vertically, helping to elongate the face.

WHO THEY’RE GOOD FOR: Small faces This shape does wonders for those with shorter, smaller faces, as it elongates the forehead to add dimension.

WHO THEY’RE GOOD FOR: Round faces The “S” shape is an iconic look and adds depth and definition to a soft bone structure.

HOW TO GET THEM: Tweeze stray hairs, but don’t go overboard, to maintain the shape.

HOW TO GET THEM: “See a professional who can wax and tweeze your brows to create a perfect arch,” says Taksey.

How To PrevenT

damaged hands

wrITTen By

alison abbey

As the body part most exposed to the elements, it’s no wonder our hands need added protection. Factor in a society-wide fear of germs and inherently thin skin, and the hands are primed to be overdried and damaged. Fortunately, there are ways to soothe and treat them, and prevent additional problems from arising.

sUMMER 2015

According to Boca raton, FL, dermatologist robyn Siperstein, MD, overdrying is the most common issue facing hands. “we wash our hands too often and don’t replace the moisture that’s removed by hard soaps,” she says. “every time we wash our hands, it strips away the naturally occurring protectants that we need.” So, how can we combat this problem and save the shield that locks moisture in? “It is important to apply a good moisturizer every morning, as well as every time you wash your hands to replace the barrier,” explains Dr. Siperstein. If you wash your hands frequently, use a nonsoap cleanser from brands like Cetaphil, eucerin or Cerave, which aren’t as stripping. Another culprit? Dishwashing. Dr. Siperstein suggests wearing gloves while washing dishes or doing any activity that keeps your hands submerged in water for a long period of time. “Gloves will keep your skin away from unnecessary contact with soaps and harsh chemicals.”

HOW TO PREVENT DAMAGED HANDS

While many spas offer treatments for whole-body wellness that include the hands, the Rittenhouse Spa & Club in Philadelphia has a service that caters specifically to them. On the spa menu is a Paraffin Wax Treatment that is meant to rejuvenate your hands. This multilayered wax treatment locks in moisture, increases natural blood flow to the hands and improves joint pain. A technician smooths coconut oil onto clean, dry hands, before applying multiple layers of wax and delicately wrapping your hands in luxurious terry cloth mittens. After 30 minutes of relaxation, the wax is removed and your hands are left smooth, moisturized and revitalized. “We tend to see more clients book this service in the summer months when their hands are constantly exposed to the elements,” says spa director Laura Lambert. “The moisturizing properties in the paraffin wax really do an amazing job to revive dull, dry skin.”

01 Slow down to relieve stress If your body is constantly under stress, you won’t be able to drop the weight that you’re trying so hard to get rid of. Here’s why: When you’re stressed out, the stress hormone, cortisol, is secreted. Even though cortisol plays a role in how the body normally functions and is essential for keeping it balanced and in harmony, too much of it inhibits insulin production. Translation: The body ends up storing glucose, or sugar, as fat. Celebrity trainer Joey Thurman says that when cortisol levels are repeatedly elevated, the body is likely to stockpile more-than-normal amounts of visceral fat (the type of fat that accumulates under the abdominal muscles). “Cortisol will cause triglycerides to be mobilized and stored as mature fat cells, which actually release cortisol themselves, contributing to the body’s overall production of the hormone.” So, being constantly stressed out makes it virtually impossible to properly shrink your fat cells. There’s also an association between stress and eating (called stress eating) that leads to weight gain that can be hard to drop. “When we are stressed out, our hormones take control of our bodies and brains, telling our brains that we are hungry even when we really aren’t,” says Thurman. Anything that helps you to calm down can alleviate the uptick in cortisol. One unknown secret that helps regulate it is vitamin C, taken in supplement form or eaten through vitamin C–rich foods.

Load up on amino acids

Beat the bloat with probiotics

Amino acids are what make up protein in the body, which is important for healthy muscles and tissues in terms of repair, immunity and balance. “When you consume protein, your body breaks it down to create a pool of single amino acids that your cells incorporate into new proteins as needed. While amino acids should be consumed as whole foods, you can take branched chain amino acids (BCAA) supplements, too,” says Thurman. It used to be that only body builders would take them, but there’s valid research out there about how beneficial amino acids are for all body types. “BCAAs have been shown to decrease the breakdown of muscle during your workout and increase the repair of muscle tissue so that you feel less muscular fatigue,” adds Thurman. But, they aren’t for everyone, especially if you’re not one to work out. Thurman recommends BCAAs for people who work out, but not for those who rarely see the inside of a gym or don’t eat properly.

Probiotics, which need to be taken orally in liquid or supplement form, balance out the bacteria levels in our gut so that there’s a restored balance between the good and bad bacteria. Probiotics are extremely beneficial because they help with digestion, the movement of food through the gut, bloating, and immunity. “When we get bloated, it’s often due to a blockage of some sort within our bodies,” says Thurman. “Taking a daily probiotic can help alleviate some of that bloat by breaking down food in the GI tract so you can excrete it out of the body.” Make sure to look for one that contains a variety of bacterial strains, specifically bifidobacteria and bifidobacterium. “Those are the only strains that are shown by studies to relieve any GI issues,” says celebrity trainer Mike Donavanik. Any areas of the body where bloating may be present, such as the stomach, will go down in about two to three weeks (that’s how long it takes for the probiotics to fully take effect).

BODY SECRETS WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW

Get a good night’s sleep regularly

TAKE A COMBINATION OF TAURINE POWDER, AN AMINO ACID AND VITAMIN B6 (found at nutritional supplement stores). Together, they act as a natural diuretic to release toxins and fluid from the body.

If you think about how bad your skin looks when you’re running on no sleep, imagine what it does to your body. Something as simple as following a sleep routine every night (even on the weekends) that consists of a solid eight hours of shut-eye could be what’s holding you back from getting the body you want. “There is an association between inadequate sleep and appetite control. Experiments that have restricted sleep for people have found that the hormones that regulate appetite actually increase appetite,” says Kristen Knutson, National Sleep Foundation Poll fellow. “Not getting enough sleep interferes with the hormonal control of your appetite, increases feelings of hunger and can lead to greater food intake.”

DON’T EAT AGAVE NECTAR. “It contains much more fructose than any other type of sweetener, even high fructose corn syrup. If you need to sweeten something, use raw honey,” says Donavanik. Of all the powdered sweeteners, stevia is believed to be the healthiest.

GET TESTED TO MAKE SURE YOU DON’T HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY. Certain foods (think dairy, eggs and gluten) can cause sensitivity in the stomach, with the reaction being bloat or a distended belly.

06 05 Roll your body before you work out While it sounds strange, rolling on a piece of cylindrical foam can give you superior results in the gym and limit your chances of injury. Like a sports massage of sorts, rolling your body creates myofascial release to loosen up your muscles so that you feel less tight and have a better range of motion for more effective workouts. You can roll instead of doing a more traditional pre-workout stretch simply by placing your entire body on the foam roller and rolling until you find a hard spot (Thurman says you’ll know when you hit it because you’ll feel it and it will hurt) and staying there for one minute. “Continue doing this until you find the next hard spot. Roll your calves, butt, legs and back.”

Spice up your diet Spices do a lot more than just give your food flavor. They’re one of the best ways to satiate your appetite and boost your metabolism. Thurman says that anything that brings spice, such as chili pepper or habanero, is good for your metabolism. “Research shows that spices contain capsaicin, which gives food heat and temporarily increases metabolism by up to 25 percent.” Other spices that do the trick: cinnamon, which lowers blood sugar and triglyceride levels; cayenne pepper, which helps with digestion; and dandelion, which reduces sugar cravings and boosts metabolism.

BODY CHANGERS THE SIMPLEST TWEAKS CAN MAKE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE

IS STRENGTH TRAINING MORE EFFECTIVE THAN CARDIO? There’s definitely an emphasis placed on cardio exercise, mainly because most people believe it’s the most effective way to burn fat, and fast. But, Donavanik says that strength training (plus clean eating) should take prominence. “Strength training allows you to build lean muscle mass, which in turn leads you to burn more calories, even when you are at rest. Plus, after strength training, your body continues to burn calories during the recovery process—your body becomes a fat burning furnace.” While cardio shouldn’t be neglected, you’ll probably want to dedicate most of your workouts to strength training. “It’s key in getting a body that is firm and lean and not ‘skinny fat,’” adds Donavanik.

Check your hormone levels Hormones can do a number on your body if they are out of sync. But, a simple test that checks to see if your hormones are elevated or your body is producing lowerthan-normal levels may be the key to unlocking why a whole host of problems are happening. Walnut Creek, CA, plastic surgeon Eric Mariotti, MD, says people react differently to hormonal influences in their bodies. “Hormones like insulin, glucagon and cortisol are released into the body, but there are also lesser-known ones like leptin, ghrelin and adiponectin, that are released, too, which can influence metabolism,” he says. “Hormones not only tell the body how to use the calories it consumes, but also where in the body to store the fat. Too much of one, or too little of another, can certainly influence, to some degree, how your body looks.”

08

Be mindful of how much fruit you’re eating Fruit is a food that’s a double-edged sword. It contains sugar (natural), which can lead to weight gain if too much is consumed, but it’s also high in fiber, which the body needs. “It’s not just fruit that you should pay attention to. It’s also fruit juices, which contain all of the sugar that’s extracted from fruit, but none of the fiber,” says Donavanik. “Fruit is great in moderation. Some fruits are lower in sugar than others, some are higher in fiber, and some have more antioxidants. Citrus fruits and berries are nutritional rock stars.” Bananas, pomegranates, mangoes, grapes and figs have the most sugar. “While they’re delicious, you need to be conscious of how much you eat,” adds Donavanik, recommending two servings of fruit per day and avoiding it at night. “There is potential for the fructose calories to get converted into fat because they’re not utilized for energy.”

Zap away unsightly veins You may have legs for miles, but their appearance can be affected if you also have spider or varicose veins—the more pronounced, dark and bulgy veins that look unattractive, but pose no harm to your health. “Spider and varicose veins may be unsightly, but they are not usually a problem medically,” says Richmond, VA, plastic surgeon Ruth Hillelson, MD. Easy to fix, varicose (the larger and thicker type) and spider (the smaller ones) veins can be corrected by using, “injections or techniques such as radio frequency, after an appropriate evaluation,” says Dr. Hillelson. A solution of polidocanol is injected into the veins, and as the solution goes to work, the veins instantly collapse. It usually takes one to two treatments to fully eradicate them, but once they’re gone, they’re gone forever.

Beware of before-and-after photos that look too good to be true. “Some plastic surgeons lie to patients about how much volume they put into the buttocks,” says Dr. Ghavami. The best way to avoid this is to do your homework and only seek out reputable surgeons.

10 Brave the cold to contour For those who can’t fathom the idea of having surgery performed on their body, there are a handful of options on the market that allow for good results to be obtained with nearly no risk. “CoolSculpting is a fantastic way to remove fat with no surgery and basically no downtime,” says Atlanta plastic surgeon Carmen Kavali, MD. “It works by targeting the fat cells specifically because fat freezes at a higher temperature than surrounding tissues.” As the fat cells die, the body naturally eliminates them over the course of a few months, leaving the body slimmer than it was before. “Noninvasive fat fighters, which aren’t weightreduction tools, work well to really reduce or eliminate specific areas of fat,” says Dr. Hillelson.

Use fat to your advantage Fat can do wonders when it’s used properly. Dr. Kavali says that most people just want to get rid of their extra fat and discard it. “But, we can take the fat that’s removed from liposuction and use it to contour the buttocks or smooth out scars.” The best ways to use fat to your advantage is through a fat grafting procedure, which doesn’t always leave you with a larger backside (not everyone wants that). “We suction fat out from where it’s abundant, like the hips or stomach, treat it, and then transfer it to an area where it’s deficient,” says Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Ashkan Ghavami, MD, who adds that fat transfer can also reduce the appearance of cellulite. “By adding fat to flatter areas like the butt, the skin is being stretched up, so the condition improves.”

Just because you have a breast augmentation, doesn’t mean you have to end up with breasts that are overly large or fake-looking. “Two of the most common things that prevent women from proceeding with breast augmentation is the anxiety of anesthesia and picking the wrong size,” says Dr. Mariotti. “Women want breasts that are not too big or too small, but rather just right.” Today, the trend is all about looking natural, but many women still think that if they opt for an augmentation, they are bound to end up with fake-looking breasts. “That’s not the case at all. With so many different sizes, shapes, projections and implant materials, you can literally custom design exactly what you want your breasts to look like, granted they match with your body frame,” explains Dr. Mariotti. If you like a certain style, or don’t like one, make sure to bring plenty of pictures in to show your plastic surgeon so that he or she understands exactly what type of look you are going for.

Tighten up lax skin Just like how you can use noninvasive treatments to better the look of your body, you can also have a skin-tightening treatment done to help fix loose skin. “It works best if skin laxity is mild to moderate. When the issues are more severe, or the expectations are more extreme, only surgery will give that type of result,” says Dr. Hillelson. Adds Dr. Kavali, “There are many nonsurgical options available these days that can actually put surgery off for longer and longer.” NB

Is an injectable the key to scar-free skin? a new in-office treatment for acne scars is Bellafill, an FDa-approved filler that minimizes the appearance of moderate to severe acne scars on the cheeks. “it’s ideal for those with acne scars such as ice-pick scars, rolling scars and boxcar scars, and who aren’t allergic to bovine collagen, which the formula contains (two allergy tests are needed before treatment),” says paramus, NJ, dermatologist rebecca Baxt, MD. “each scar is injected to fill in the depression and stimulate collagen growth.” one or two treatments are needed for optimal results, which typically last about a year. “But in my experience, three treatments, spaced six months apart, provide superior results because the collagen has had time to grow,” says Dr. Baxt.

If you have depressed (atrophic) acne scars, you could benefit from a radio-frequency fractional laser treatment called eMatrix. The procedure, which feels like a warm, prickly sensation as it delivers energy deep into skin, works by restructuring damaged collagen to give skin a smoother, tighter effect. “The pain associated with the procedure is minimal,” says Nashville, TN, dermatologist Michael Gold, MD. “You can expect your skin to be red (it can feel like a sunburn) for one to two days, but there’s usually no need to miss work. Generally, two to four treatments are needed, and the results, which include raising and smoothing of scarred areas, can be very impressive.” A new nanofractional radiofrequency device, Venus Viva, has recently been cleared by the FDA and is said to be even more powerful than eMatrix, with the ability to treat larger areas of scarring. “We have seen some very promising results and are excited to offer it to our patients,” says Dr. Gold.

WHY YOUR SKIN CHANGES

01

As you enter your 40s, the thinning of your skin accelerates. This isn’t a change you’ll see overnight—it’s likely to take weeks, or even months, for the texture of your skin to transform. Melbourne, FL, dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, says there are a few elements that cause skin to become crepey. “The sun, a loss of collagen and elastin, and a decline in moisture due to aging, can all cause changes in texture.” Crepey skin becomes more pronounced when there’s a significant amount of fat loss in the area (from aging or weight loss). “Chronic use of medications like steroids can also be a causative factor,” adds Dr. Saluja. A decrease in female hormones, which leads to dry skin, contributes to crepiness on the arms and thighs more so than the face. Hormonal replacement therapies may help improve the look of the skin.

CREPEY. “CREPEY SKIN IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT SIGNS OF SKIN AGING TO PREVENT BECAUSE IT HAS SO MANY DIFFERENT CAUSES AND CAN OCCUR ON SO MANY DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE BODY,” SAYS NEW YORK DERMATOLOGIST MACRENE ALEXIADES, MD. BUT, JUST BECAUSE YOUR SKIN IS STARTING TO HAVE A MIND OF ITS

02

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

DID YOU KNOW? According to La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, while these treatments may have benefits, they are not a replacement for surgery in patients with anything other than minimal concerns.

THE CAUSES OF CREPEY SKIN

OWN AND LACKS THE FIRMNESS IT USED TO HAVE, DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT LIKE THAT.

Skin that has turned crepey is thin, loose and flaccid with a certain degree of sagging. Sacramento, CA, dermatologist Suzanne Kilmer, MD, says that crepey skin doesn’t look nearly as thick or plump as younger skin does. Often compared to the thinness of a piece of paper or a crêpe, it’s the thinning of the dermis and epidermis that make skin look like this. “Crepey skin differs from other types of skin aging,” says Dr. Alexiades. “It first appears as an increase in skin markings, which look like little dots around the hair follicle that start to merge into linear or diamond-shaped marks and connect the dots together.” Over time, the subtle creases and pores in the skin slowly become exaggerated as the breakdown of collagen and elastin becomes more evident. From there, skin folds accumulate and skin starts to thin out. Whereas a stretch mark is the cause of a dermal tear in the skin and a loss of elastin, and a wrinkle forms from repeat motions in one area, crepey skin is more so the result of a lack of skin thickness.

03

WHO IT AFFECTS

FAT LOSS + COLLAGEN & ELASTIN DAMAGE + A LACK OF MOISTURE = THIN, CREPEY SKIN

Everyone is susceptible to crepey skin, but some skin tones and types are more likely to experience it than others. Anyone who’s prone to sun damage and has little melanin in their skin—think fair- and lighter-toned types—and those who bake in the sun or use tanning beds, may see signs of it faster or more intensely. Certain ethnicities, such as Latinas, African Americans and Asians, inherently have thicker skin than others, which may hinder the effects of crepiness to some degree. MORE > SUMMER 2015

THE FACE The quality of the skin on the face is affected by sun damage, repeat muscle movement and a breakdown of the integrity of the skin. The eyes and neck are most likely to show crepiness first; over time, skin on the cheeks can start to thin, too. Plenty of women have crepey skin on their faces that also comes with sunspots—a dead giveaway that sun exposure has basically eaten away at the collagen, leaving the skin with little fullness or elasticity. HOW TO FIX IT There’s more than one way to alleviate crepey skin on your face. “Peeling away fine lines with hydroxy-acid creams, lotions or chemical peels may help. Stimulating collagen with nightly retinoid creams or retinol may improve the look of your skin, too,” says Dr. Saluja. An ablative fractional laser can also amend your skin’s texture. “It’s the best thing you can do to minimize the crepiness, but it has the most downtime of the options,” says Dr. Kilmer.


SKIN THE CAUSES OF CREPEY SKIN

THE EYES The skin around the eyes is superthin. In fact, it’s the thinnest skin on the face. Years of environmental damage and squinting can wear away the thickness of the skin, making the eyes look worn out. “The skin here looks like crêpe paper—very thin with fine puckers. Patients with eczema often have crepey skin around their eyes, even if they are younger, due to the chronic inflammation and dryness,” says New York dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, MD. While genetics do play a role, once the skin around your eyes begins to look crepey, it affects your overall appearance. HOW TO FIX IT The extent of how thinned out your skin is will determine what is best. Some dermatologists and plastic surgeons prefer a one-two punch method that consists of first smoothing the skin with a series of chemical peels around the eyes or fractionated CO2 laser treatments on the eyelids (you will be put under anesthesia so you won’t feel anything, but plan for a few days off to fully recover at home), which stimulates collagen to help thicken the skin. Then, once the skin has begun to soften and increase in thickness, Botox and/or a hyaluronic acid filler can be injected into the little lines around your eyes to help minimize them. WHAT ELSE TO DO: Because the skin around the eyes is thin, it’s best to use an eye cream with ingredients that are as pure as possible (to reduce the risk of irritation and reaction). Blending science with nature, Schaf Skincare Nutritive Daily Eye Cream is free of toxins, fragrance and parabens and helps to smooth and firm the eye area with peptides, CoQ10 and hyaluronic acid. $40, schafskincare.com

THE NECK Crepiness on the neck is different from crepey skin elsewhere. The skin here is naturally thin and thins out even more once collagen and elastin begin to break down. Skin doesn’t just become loose; it also becomes laden with horizontal bands. Sun damage and smoking speed up the extent of the damage. HOW TO FIX IT Most experts agree that the best way to tackle crepiness on the neck is with a laser that stimulates collagen production to thicken the skin. “My go-to is the Fraxel Dual laser, which contains both erbium and thulium wavelengths,” says Dr. Waldorf. “It makes a difference on thin areas of skin with just one treatment.” Because neckbands are a contributor, too, those can’t be glossed over, which is why a neuromodulator like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin is necessary. “It helps where muscle movement aggravates the appearance of the neck, making the crepey skin bunch up,” Dr. Waldorf adds.

WHAT ELSE TO DO: Loading skin with firming ingredients like peptides and niacin will help tighten it and downplay its loose texture. NIA 24 Neck Sculpting Cream is the perfect adjunct to use with in-office treatments because it adds moisture and gives a tightening effect over time. $118, skinstore.com

+

THE AFFECTED AREAS

HOW TO FIX IT Long-lasting collagen fillers are the go-to for most doctors. “Fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra can improve the appearance of your skin by revolumizing the area,” says Dr. Saluja. “Another option is Ultherapy (a noninvasive ultrasound treatment that tightens and lifts skin), which is now being used to treat crepey skin on the hands, too.” Applying Retin-A to the backs of your hands nightly, and sealing it in with a layer of moisturizer that contains ingredients like urea, shea butter, petrolatum, mineral oil or hyaluronic acid, will also help improve skin texture so that it begins to look thicker and firmer over time.

THE KNEES Years of basking in the sun, plus weight fluctuation, can cause skin around the knees to become loose and crepey. HOW TO FIX IT For this part of the body, Dr. Alexiades says she’s had success with the Profound laser, a minimally invasive injectable laser treatment, which delivers energy deep within the skin via fine needles at a threshold temperature. “Bypassing the skin’s surface allows for more energy to be delivered than with a skin surface tightener.”

Aged hands are a telltale sign of how old you are. They’re notorious for becoming wrinkly over time and displaying signs of crepiness, which results from both sun damage and fat loss. Overwashing your hands can also zap your skin of moisture, which needs to be replaced often.

WHAT ELSE TO DO:

THE CAUSES OF CREPEY SKIN

Rich in skin-softening and retexturizing glycolic acid, Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream helps transform skin. $50, dermstore.com

THE ARMS & ELBOWS The undersides of the arms, the elbows and the area where the arms connect to the chest near the armpits, are some of the crepiest areas on the body. “Women get it so bad here,” says Dr. Kilmer. “Part of the reason why it’s so apparent on the undersides of the arms is because of hormonal changes due to menopause. As estrogen levels drop in the body, collagen is diminished, so there’s less supportive collagen in the arms and thinning skin becomes more noticeable.” When you lose weight in your arms, which can be an area that fluctuates, the skin becomes stretched out.

THE THIGHS Skin on the inner thighs loses firmness over time, becoming loose and more stretched out. Just like how skin on the rest of the body becomes crepey, the same thing happens to the skin on the thighs, which is naturally thinner than other parts of the body. HOW TO FIX IT The most effective way to improve the appearance of crepiness on the thighs is with topicals. “One of the best things to use is retinol or Retin-A, or even a DNA repairing cream that’s designed for the face,” says Dr. Alexiades. “When dealing with the thighs and other large areas of the body, it can get expensive because you have to use more product to cover all of the skin. But, it’s one of the best ways to limit the effects of crepiness.”

THE CHEST Crepey skin on the chest becomes accentuated by sun damage. A lack of moisture in the area—the chest is often exposed to the sun and other environmental damagers—only makes the crepiness (and any wrinkles) more pronounced. HOW TO FIX IT Treatments like microdermabrasion can help smooth out skin, but for more of a transformation to the skin’s surface, your doctor may recommend anywhere from one to five sessions of Fraxel. “We’re also using Ultherapy to treat crepiness on the décolleté because it stimulates collagen production in a deeper layer of skin,” says Dr. Saluja. Microfat grafts may also be a beneficial solution for some patients.

WHAT ELSE TO DO: Restorsea Repairing Neck and Decollatage Treatment improves skin texture with a patented natural enzyme and vitamin C. $150, restorsea.com

HOW TO FIX IT A skin-tightening treatment, which helps firm skin by inciting new collagen to be made, may be needed. And, because the arms are a hard area to treat, a more accurate microinvasive skin tightener, such as ThermiTight, may be your best option. It works differently than more traditional radio-frequency treatments in that it “injects” energy deep into the skin with tiny probes (the areas are first injected with anesthetic, so you won’t feel much during the treatment). The results take up to six months to see and some doctors say they are not yet certain if they are long-term. You may be swollen for a few days afterward, but the brand claims you typically only need one 60-minute treatment for it to work. MORE > SUMMER 2015

ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS TO USE If crepey skin is a problem, these skin-care ingredients, which are commonly found in creams, lotions and serums, can help improve the look and feel of your skin.

01 MOISTURIZE REGULARLY Hydration is important for maintaining healthy skin. Properly moisturized skin looks fuller, plumper and more resilient and snaps back into place. On the flipside, a lack of moisture will make crepey skin look worse—drier, thinner and unable to recoil. Dr. Waldorf says that when crepiness is a matter of lost hydration (which is common in patients with atopic dermatitis skin conditions), applying a bland barrier cream or occlusive, like Vaseline, will help.

ALPHAHYDROXY ACIDS

HYALURONIC ACID

Besides brightening skin, AHAs like glycolic acid help repair collagen and bring new skin cells to the surface.

This ingredient helps to lock in moisture by attracting water to the area and plumping up the skin.

CERAMIDES

PEPTIDES

Naturally found in skin, ceramides lock in water so moisture doesn’t escape.

Peptides promote collagen production, which leads to stronger, firmer and smoother skin.

GLYCERIN With its slick feel, glycerin draws on water in the air to lock it into your skin, which is why these work best on damp skin.

02 STIMULATE COLLAGEN In addition to keeping skin moisturized, preserving the integrity of your skin’s collagen and elastin is key. “The best way to do this is through the regular and consistent use of anti-aging ingredients. Intermittently, you should undergo laser or energy-based treatments, which can make bigger contributions to the collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid content in the deeper levels of your skin,” says Dr. Alexiades. Topical products that contain growth factors, peptides, alphahydroxy acids and retinoids will help, too.

03 MAINTAIN A STABLE WEIGHT You want to try to keep your weight fairly consistent and not fluctuate too much. The reason: “Fat loss will increase the appearance of lines and wrinkles and crepey skin,” says Dr. Waldorf. With less of a cushion of sorts to support the skin, changes in skin quality and texture become much more evident. “In some areas, patients with crepey skin can improve its appearance with very small superficial injections of a thinner hyaluronic acid filler like Belotero, or one that gives a skin-boosting effect like Restylane Silk.”


SKIN

SHEA BUTTER

Superthick—it’s in a lot of moisturizers—petrolatum keeps moisture in the skin by creating a seal of sorts.

An intense moisturizer, shea butter is loaded with essential fatty acids that keep skin hydrated and pliable.

RETINOL

UREA

Whether you use an over-the-counter or prescription-strength version, this vitamin A derivative thickens skin.

It works to thicken skin, address changes in skin texture and exfoliate, too.

When it comes to correcting crepiness, Dr. Saluja says it’s important to know that treating crepey skin is one of the most difficult tasks to accomplish in aesthetic medicine. There’s only so much improvement that can be done due to the biological components of crepey skin. “It’s best to keep your expectations realistic,” she says. The crepier the skin, the less healthy the collagen and elastin is.

04 PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN Because the sun is directly responsible for degrading healthy collagen and elastin, which makes skin look weathered, crepey and loose, it is crucial to use sunscreen daily on both your face and areas of your body that are exposed. NB

EXCESSIVE WEAR AND CHIPPED TEETH Often overlooked, chipped teeth give off a worn look that leads others to believe your smile has been through years of wear and tear.

SHIFTING AND ASYMMETRY Over time, teeth begin to shift and angle inward, adding unnecessary years to your smile. So how can you avoid it? Early intervention.

“The best fixes for shifting teeth include bringing your bite into proper occlusion, repairing decay and making sure that the shifting is not caused by periodontal disease. Orthodontic treatment is another way to treat the teeth.”

01 WHY IT HAPPENS

Teeth can shift for a number of reasons—anything from the aging process, which causes changes in the gums, bones (this is more common in older patients) and health of the teeth, to grinding can cause the teeth to move. As teeth shift, they begin to slowly move from their current position and rotate forward, backward or sideways. Sarasota, FL, cosmetic dentist Jenifer Back, DDS, says that shifting can start in your 30s and will progress if not properly addressed. “Even if you have had an orthodontic treatment, unless you wear a retainer, you can expect some shifting,” adds Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald Goldstein, DDS.

02 WHEN YOU NOTICE A CHANGE

You probably won’t notice much of a difference in your teeth overnight, but the more your teeth start to move, the more noticeable the differences become. New York cosmetic dentist Irene Grafman, DDS, says that patients tend to notice movement-related changes to their front teeth because those teeth are most visible. At your regular dental checkups, your dentist should always be checking for periodontal pockets and bone loss, which are indicators for potential problems like shifting. However, Dr. Goldstein says that if you apply some pressure on your teeth using your finger and you feel some mobility or looseness, you can be pretty sure that your teeth are moving to some degree.

THE HEALTH EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH CROWDED TEETH Not only is a smile with teeth that look crowded or misaligned less aesthetically pleasing, but Los Altos, CA, cosmetic dentist Bruce Hartley, DDS, says that it can carry serious health ramifications, too. “Crowded or crooked teeth collect more bacterial plaque, which studies have linked to heart disease, gum disease and dementia.” MORE > SUMMER 2015

GRINDING AND CLENCHING

BONE LOSS

DISCOUNT THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING CARE OF YOUR TEETH, THE REASON WHY THEY SHIFT COMES DOWN TO HABITUAL ACTIVITIES AND CHANGES HAPPENING AT A DEEPER LEVEL MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. BEFORE

Biting down hard on your teeth and moving your mouth back and forth wears down your teeth. Known as grinding and clenching, this habitual act puts tension and force on the upper teeth and pushes the lower jaw forward. “A lot of people clench and grind their teeth while they are in the REM phase of sleep, so they don’t even know that they’re doing it,” says Dr. Back. Heavy grinding can cause misalignment because, as Dr. Grafman explains, if you are hitting certain teeth with too much force, they move to avoid the trauma.

THE FIX San Francisco cosmetic dentist Niloufer Hamsayeh, DDS, says if you grind your teeth, then you need to wear an appliance. It fits over your teeth and redistributes pressure and prevents wear of the teeth. If there’s any damage, your dentist can use veneers, “Which permanently bond a thin, durable shell to the teeth,” says Dr. Hartley.

Believe it or not, a change in the density of your bones can cause your gums to recede and affect your smile. “The health of the bone supporting your teeth is important,” says Dr. Smigel. “If it changes, your teeth will shift.” Changes in the bone can lead to gum recession, which indicates periodontal disease. “The bone that supports the teeth starts to resorb and you get perio pockets, meaning that the bone is no longer supporting the tooth,” says New York cosmetic dentist Bijan Gohari, DMD. “As you develop gum disease, the tissue that holds the root to the bone gets inflamed and pockets form.” This needs to be addressed immediately to reduce the incidence of tooth loss.

THE FIX There is only one way to fix receding gums, and that’s by adding back what’s been lost. Tissue (taken from the root of your mouth or donor tissue) is placed over the area where it is missing and stitched into place, integrating with your natural tissue over time. If the bone has been destroyed, your dentist may recommend an additional procedure be done to regenerate the lost bone.

03 AGE AFTER

Your smile falls victim to the hands of time, too. Dr. Gohari says that teeth shift as you get older because of a lost tooth or periodontal disease, which weakens the hold of the tooth. They also begin to thin out, so they wear away faster. “Another effect of aging is bone loss, especially if gum disease is present,” says Dr. Grafman.

THE FIX For teeth that have started to move, Los Altos, CA, cosmetic dentist Joseph Field, DDS, says that clear aligners, like Invisalign, can be used. “With clear aligners, we can straighten the teeth in a comfortable and aesthetic way,” he adds.

This patient first received Invisalign from Redondo Beach, CA, cosmetic dentist Michael Fulbright, DDS, and then had veneers placed to lengthen and brighten her smile.


TOOTH DECAY

TONGUE THRUSTING

Caused by inadequate dental hygiene, especially a lack of or failure to floss, decay that sits in the teeth can wear away at healthy enamel and leave more of a space between the teeth than what naturally exists. The decay doesn’t allow for the teeth to fit together properly. The cause of the problem needs to be identified and stopped so it doesn’t happen again once it’s fixed.

THE FIX “For extreme damage, the teeth may need to be repaired with onlays or crowns, to close any spaces,” says Dr. Goldstein. If teeth have been lost due to tooth decay, Dr. Smigel says they should be restored, which will stop further shifting.

Constantly pushing your tongue against your teeth can force them out of place (it can happen with younger patients, too). “Tongue thrusting happens during swallowing. Instead of putting the tongue at the roof of the mouth, the tongue is placed up against the teeth, which can cause the front teeth to flare out and make spaces between the teeth, too. When spaces exist, the teeth can become mobile,” says Dr. Back.

AFTER

THE FIX To correct moving teeth as a result of pressure applied to them by your tongue, Invisalign is said to be an effective solution. You’ll have to break or minimize your tongue-thrusting habit—most likely your dentist will create a special retainer or bite guard for you to wear at night.

GENETICS

NOT WEARING A RETAINER AFTER ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

Some of us are lucky to have been born with picture-perfect straight teeth. But, just because you didn’t succumb to braces in your teenage years, doesn’t mean you might not need them at a later date. “If your parents or grandparents lost teeth due to bone disease or had full dentures, you may have a similar experience. The genetic pattern of bone loss can kick in around age 60, causing a visible change in your teeth,” says Dr. Goldstein.

Whether you had braces or orthodontics as a teenager or an adult, you need to wear a retainer afterward to prevent your teeth from moving. “I like to use either removable retainers or a wire retainer permanently placed on the back of the teeth,” says Dr. Back. “The wire removes the responsibility of having to remember to wear a retainer.”

THE FIX A proactive approach can

As teeth move, less of your top teeth show when you smile and more of your bottom teeth become exposed, giving the look of short teeth. “We see more imperfections on the lower teeth because those teeth are smaller and more visible during speaking. They are also easily moved from clenching and grinding,” says Dr. Back. Short teeth can also create the look of asymmetry because the proportional distance between the tip of the nose and the chin will appear to be out of balance.

02 THE FACE LOOKS SUNKEN AND HOLLOW It may sound like a stretch to think that your teeth can negatively affect your face to such a degree that it looks sunken and collapsed, but unfortunately, it’s true. Once teeth start to move, they have less support internally due to a decrease in bone mass, tooth wear and aging of the face itself. As the face ages, the lower jaw loses definition. While this is partially due to changes in the underlying structure of the face, Dr. Smigel says that a collapsing bite will cause the jaw to move forward. “The upper teeth won’t show as much and the distance between the nose and chin will get shorter, making the face look older.”

INSIDE

“Most people won’t admit to not wearing their retainer after orthodontic treatment, which leads to teeth that shift. Any changes we make to our bodies need to be maintained,” says Dr. Grafman. “When our teeth are moved into a new position after braces, they will always want to go back to where they were and retainers prevent that movement.”

TIP O1

As Dr. Goldstein explains, teeth have definitive shapes and are proportionate to one another. But, when they shift, spaces can form, which can alter the smile in a negative way. Spaces between the teeth can also make the overall smile seem crooked and gappy.

AFTER

04 THE SMILE LOOKS WORN The more the teeth start to push forward, the more they begin to look worn and rough. Clenching and grinding can also cause teeth to look worn down. “Shifting teeth can also change the look of the smile overall, but it depends on which teeth are involved,” says Dr. Smigel. “If the front teeth have shifted, then the midline will be off and the teeth will look off-center or crowded and protruded.”

+

Grand Junction, CO, cosmetic dentist Julie Gillis, DDS, used braces, teeth whitening, a veneer and a bridge to create a new, improved smile.

Whether your teeth are straight, or you’re just starting to notice minimal movement, Dr. Field says that wearing a retainer can help. “Retainers hold the teeth in position and prevent issues that arise with misalignment,” he adds. In addition to limiting or averting your teeth from moving, a retainer can also help alleviate headaches and pain associated with TMJ. Night guards work similarly, keeping teeth in their proper positions, while also offering the advantage of helping to stop grinding.

TIP O2

TAKE CARE OF YOUR TEETH

Daily brushing and flossing remove any trapped food and bacteria that could cause problems later on. “At the first sign of bleeding gums (from flossing), you must floss until the floss is clean,” says Dr. Gohari, adding that it’s important to see a dentist regularly to make sure your oral health is good. If you start to notice that floss slips with no resistance and you have food collecting in a certain area, Dr. Hamsayeh says to have your dentist take a look because it’s probably the start of a shifting tooth.

TIP O3

GET REGULAR CLEANINGS Visiting your dentist for regular cleanings is important for a healthy smile. Not only do professional cleanings dislodge trapped bacteria and remove decay from around the teeth, but they also allow your dentist to assess any bone loss or potential gum disease. Dr. Goldstein says that diligent home care is just as important as professional cleanings, which should be done three to four times per year. NB

Pesky fine lines on your upper and lower lips, which tend to crop up in your 40s, can be a telltale sign of how old you really are. Whether they are the result of sun damage, smoking, aging or hereditary factors, these etched-in vertical lines can be minimized with the help of laser resurfacing. “Fractional ablative erbium lasers use light energy to penetrate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen, leading to smoother and healthier skin over time,” says Stony Brook, NY, plastic surgeon Mark D. Epstein, MD. “Because this type of laser is basically removing layers of skin where the lines are present, some downtime is required. Allow four to six days for recovery, and for deeper lines, a second treatment may be necessary.” Alternative options, including fillers and neuromodulators, dermabrasion and fat grafting, can also help minimize lip lines.

BUT IN THE CASE OF SOME YOUNG HOLLYWOOD STARLETS, THE PROCEDURES BEING DONE ARE TACKING ON THE YEARS INSTEAD OF MAKING TIME STAND STILL. “SOME MEMBERS OF THIS GENERATION ARE ALL ABOUT CHASING EVERY LINE AND WRINKLE AND ADDING WAY TOO MUCH VOLUME,” SAYS NASHVILLE, TN, OCULOPLASTIC SURGEON BRIAN BIESMAN, MD.

VOLUME CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN THE FACE. BUT, OPTING TO RESTORE IT BEFORE TOO MUCH—OR REALLY ANY—OF IT HAS BEEN LOST, CAN DO YOU MORE HARM THAN GOOD. HERE’S WHY:

AN OVERABUNDANCE OF VOLUME THROWS OFF THE PROPORTIONS OF THE FACE. Volume has its place in the face, especially when fat has been lost (or it’s being used to augment features). “However, if too much volume is put into the face via overfilling with either fat or injections, the eye is automatically drawn to the treated areas. The rest of the face (and any untreated features) can appear undervolumized, when in fact, they really may not be. An imbalance in volume disrupts the natural proportions of the face,” says Dr. Biesman.

THE MIDFACE CAN BECOME DISTORTED. The lips and cheeks are often revolumized and the lower face is left alone. ”While volume needs to be maintained throughout the face, if you don’t have flat cheeks or fat loss, and fillers are used, the appearance of the midface can become distorted,” says West Palm Beach, FL, facial plastic surgeon Michael Schwartz, MD.

THE LIPS DON’T MATCH THE FACE. With or without fillers, the lower lip should be a bit larger than the upper lip. When too much volume is added, the face is thrown off balance. Oftentimes, patients try to match their facial features to their lips by adding volume throughout.

THE SOFTNESS OF THE FACE IS LOST.

As your body loses fat, you also lose it from your face, which can cause a hollow look. “You end up looking older if one area is accentuated with too much filler because the other parts that weren’t treated look even worse,” says Dr. Singer.

IT’S NOT JUST BAD SURGERY THAT CAN AGE YOU. FILLERS AND INJECTABLES CAN DO THE SAME THING WHEN USED INCORRECTLY. “THERE’S A TREND IN YOUNGER WOMEN TO SUCCUMB TO THE PRESSURE TO EMBODY AN AESTHETIC IDEAL PORTRAYED IN THE MEDIA.

“There’s way too much filler in her cheekbones, which gives her face more volume than it needs,” says La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD. “Big apple cheeks equal excessive volume, which makes the central part of her face look taut and aged.”


FACE

WHY IT CAN MAKE YOU LOOK OLDER

I N J E C TA B L E TOXINS CAN MAKE YOU LOOK FROZEN Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all effective in reducing lines by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles to restrict movement. But, problems arise when you start to overdo it. “In terms of neuromodulators, paralysis of all of the forehead muscles adds insult to injury by increasing the rigid and severe look of the face, as well as lowering the brow,” says Dr. Rapaport. “With this, any upper eyelid hooding becomes exaggerated.” Some women get too much Botox injected into the middle of their forehead, which creates a frozen look. Or, the sides of the brows are elevated too high. “If you naturally have a long face and your brows are elevated to an unnatural position, the pronounced height makes you look older, and sometimes bizarre. The length of your face becomes drawn out, which gives you a more mature look,” says Dr. Singer. Brows that sit too high can make the face appear “pulled.”

ARE YOU AGING TOO FAST?

Fillers and injectables work best in younger patients to tweak a feature or for proactive measures. When too much filler is used, the balance of the face is thrown off. “To keep a natural, age-appropriate look, you have to allow for the appearance of some lines and wrinkling,” says Dr. Biesman. “The more you fill young faces that don’t need that much done to keep a youthful look, the more you look like you’re trying to capture something that doesn’t fit your face. It’s not natural to see a 35-year-old woman with a frozen forehead, overelevated eyebrows and too much fullness in her cheeks and under her eyes. We often associate these changes with older women who have been overtreated in an effort to intervene with the aging process. Younger patients who are overtreated can end up looking like older, distorted versions of themselves.”

I N J E C TA B L E FILLERS CAN GIVE TOO MUCH VOLUME Volume enhancers add volume to fat deficient areas by plumping the area from the inside out. “They’re wonderful for age-related volume loss and are appropriate to enhance areas that require more volume to balance out the features,” says Dr. Nguyen. But, oftentimes volume is used in younger patients before any volume loss is evident. “Adding unnecessary volume makes the face look fat and inflated versus there being a reasonable amount of fullness,” says Dr. Jewell. The lips and cheeks are often the first features to be overaugmented. “Excessive filler in the cheeks produces a sense of rigidity, stiffness and a more masculine appearance,” says Dr. Rapaport. If you haven’t lost the fat, there should be enough volume in the area. “The extra volume creates a chipmunk look, and most people don’t realize that it makes the center of the face look tight, pulled and doughy,” says Dr. Singer.

HOW TO FIX IT

HOW TO FIX IT

Because neuromodulators aren’t permanent, the result they leave behind will fade away with time. It’s best to let the product completely wear away on its own and get the green light from your plastic surgeon or dermatologist when it’s safe to start up again. And, the next time you visit your doctor for injections, don’t be as aggressive and start off with much less— you can always work your way up to more.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible, so if you don’t like the result, a solution of hyaluronidase can correct it. With semipermanent, permanent or non-FDA approved fillers, the effects can be long-lasting and sometimes irreversible. “These products can promote collagen and scar tissue in unwanted areas, so it’s best to have fillers properly administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist,” says Dr. Nguyen.

WHAT THE DOCTOR SAYS: “She has this overfilled and overdone look that’s becoming very commonplace today,” says Dr. Biesman. “Her lips and cheeks are full and her skin is almost too smooth. Sometimes, when the lateral face isn’t treated, and the chin is neglected, too, the proportions of the face get thrown off balance.”


THE CHIN

THE FACE OVERALL

Oversuctioning your cheeks can make you look older. “Unnecessary or excessive fat transfer can have the same negative effect as an overabundance of filler,” says Dr. Nguyen. There’s also a stiffness that can occur.

If a chin implant is too large, the overall balance of the face is thrown off, taking the facial structure from more of a heart shape to a square shape. The softness of the face also gets lost.

While a facelift isn’t all that common in younger patients, some women do it before it’s needed. “When it’s unnecessary and poorly done, the underlying tissues give a look of fullness in the cheeks that makes the face look aged,” says Dr. Jewell. “We’re seeing a lot of this in celebrities today, even if they didn’t have a facelift, but rather excessive fat grafting.”

THE BROWS

THE NECK

THE EYES

Although more people are opting for Botox to lift their brows versus undergoing a browlift, a really high brow is an instant ager. “When the arch of the brow is lost, the brows look aged, which makes the face look older,” says Dr. Jewell.

Dr. Singer says that overly contouring the neck, or removing too much fat from it, results in an excessively deep and sharp angle that gives more of a harsh, masculine look than a young, attractive, feminine one.

Blepharoplasty and the removal of fat from under the eyes are popular with younger patients. “The problem with excessive fat removal or otherwise aggressive eyelid surgery is that some patients end up looking ‘different’ rather than refreshed,” says Dr. Biesman. Getting rid of too much fat can make the face look hollowed.

WHAT THE DOCTOR SAYS: “Rose looks older than she is. Her eyebrows are arched and her forehead is overly smooth, resembling a forehead treated with neuromodulators. Her lips look unnaturally plumped up and curled at the edges. Her nose also appears to have been thinned,” says Dr. Youn.

REAL AGE

36

WHAT THE DOCTOR SAYS: “When too much neurotoxin, like Botox or Dysport, is injected into the forehead, it can cause the eyebrows to droop, making a person look older, even though the forehead is smooth and wrinklefree,” says Dr. Youn. “It’s possible that this has happened to Coco’s eyebrows. Her lips are also obviously plumped up.”

PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN SO THAT YOU DON’T END UP LOOKING LIKE AN ALTERED, OR OLDER, VERSION OF YOURSELF. 184

SUMMER 2015


FACE

DON’T OVERDO IT. Especially true for beginners, it’s best to underdo it—you can always work your way up to doing more when it’s truly needed.

02

TRUST YOUR FACE TO THE RIGHT HANDS. It’s important to only seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon who has a good understanding of facial aesthetics, as well as the education, knowledge and training of how to perform plastic surgery and fillers and injectables while maintaining good aesthetic judgment. “So many people get facial work done by someone who’s not professionally or appropriately trained, or educated on facial structure, aging and the tools to correct it, and will do anything that the patient asks of them,” says Dr. Biesman.

ARE YOU AGING TOO FAST?

01

WHEN LASERS ARE THE PROBLEM It’s not just surgery and fillers that can age your face—lasers can do it, too. Overtreating skin with heavy-duty lasers can leave it looking waxy. Plus, they can change the natural pigment in the skin. “When that happens, there is such a difference or demarcation in the coloring of the skin that a lot of makeup needs to be worn continuously, and that will definitely make someone look older than they really are,” says Dr. Singer.

03

JUST BECAUSE IT CAN BE DONE, DOESN’T MEAN IT NEEDS TO BE. You don’t need to start with fillers or surgery just because you hit a certain age or because everyone else around you is doing it. Do it when you feel it will benefit you. Make sure that the procedures and treatments you opt for are best for your age and concerns at the right time in your life to keep your look age-appropriate.

04

SHOW YOUR DOCTOR PICTURES OF YOURSELF FROM WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER. Dr. Biesman says that this is the real secret to getting a near-perfect look. “If your doctor can get a feel for how your face looked when you were younger—even if it was just five years ago—he or she can better assess what needs to be done and do it the right way.”

05 THE SELFIE REVOLUTION Selfies have become a staple in society—everyone from teenagers to celebrities are posting them for the world to see. However, some experts feel that selfies are creating a distorted reality for how people perceive themselves. “What the camera sees above you or close up in front of you is not what people view in normal encounters,” says Dr. Schwartz. “As you change your face to look better in a picture, which is more so the case with younger patients, you actually end up distorting your normal appearance.”

DON’T IGNORE WHAT YOU WERE BORN WITH. Not every procedure can be done on every person. If you don’t have the natural facial structure to support a certain change to your face, what you are asking for may not be something you can achieve because it will alter your face and ultimately look unnatural.

NOT ALL DOCTORS ARE THE SAME!

Properly board-certified plastic and facial plastic surgeons do not refer to themselves as “cosmetic surgeons.” Cosmetic surgeons are doctors, but they don’t hold recognized board-certifications in plastic surgery.

RIGHT

WRONG

PLASTIC SURGEONS, FACIAL PLASTIC SURGEONS AND DERMATOLOGISTS

COSMETIC SURGEONS

VS

Board-certified means properly certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS); additionally having undergone the necessary surgical training in a supervised setting and demonstrated best practices for patient safety.



Properly board-certified by ABMS



Education and training extends beyond general medicine and surgery (See timeline below)



Educated and trained in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures*



Operate in safe, accredited facilities*



Have hospital privileges for the procedures performed*



Hold memberships with elite medical societies

Any type of doctor, even an OB-GYN or ER doctor, can hold a medical degree and may be board-certified to practice a specific type of medicine, but not plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons are often self-taught in aesthetic procedures.

+ COSMETIC DENTIST



Not a real board-certified plastic surgeon by definition



Limited or no plastic surgery training, often with weekend crash courses



Frequently offer lower prices and often operate in unaccredited facilities that have no oversight or inspections

LINGO TO LOOK OUT FOR

• Differ from general dentists

“American Board of Cosmetic Surgery”

• Trained in cosmetic procedures

“Cosmetic surgeon” rather than plastic surgeon

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that the doctor you choose for any elective cosmetic procedure be board-certified and a member of the appropriate medical society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many societies are not recognized by ABMS. If your doctor touts membership with a board that is not recognized by ABMS, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably because he or she have not had recognized formal training or may not have been able to pass his or her board exams," says La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD.
