Forget BB's, now it's all about the CC's. Creams that is! After their huge success in Asia, BB creams took the US market by storm for their formulas that act as a primer, tinted moisturizer, and anti-shine product in one. Now CC Creams, which stand for complexion correcting takes it to the next level by offering fuller coverage like you would get from your favorite foundation. Great for sun spots and redness, products like Supergoop's SPF 35 Daily Correct CC Cream also give the added bonus of sun protection so you get to prevent further sun damage as well as correct existing unevenness. It comes in two great shades of light/medium and medium/dark and is so light it feels like you're not wearing anything!
Shop Bliss now! Cellulite plagues many women and even a small number of men, however it still remains one of the hardest skin issues to treat. Unfortunately, a lot of the time cellulite is hereditary and hormonal based which can be totally out of our control. It's a common condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled appearance. However there are some measures we can take to minimize the appearance of those cottage cheese thighs.
I'm well accustomed to cellulite (thanks mom) and have tried a number of at home remedies such as drinking a lot of water and trying to cut back on processed and fatty food. That's great for prevention but there are some great devices on the market that can help visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite like the FatGirlSlim Machine by Bliss. This body contouring system utilizes a vacuum massager in conjunction with a firming cream to give those troubled areas a more contoured, smooth silhouette. Cellulite might not be totally gone, but you'll feel more confident about the upcoming swimwear season!

Exfoliation is one of the keys to hold off premature aging and just keep your complexion looking even and radiant. It's one of my absolute favorite parts of a beauty routine because it actually feels like something is happening (especially if the texture is gritty). Needless to say, I'm always on the lookout for great and effective exfoliants to try so my interest was piqued when I saw Peter Thomas Roth's FirmX Peeling Gel featured in Star magazine.
This is unlike any exfoliant I tried in that you don't need to wet skin to use. Instead, generously massage it over a dry face and watch as the product causes your dead skin cells to visibly roll and lift off! How is this possible you must be asking? Multi-action enzymes and cellulose gently remove impurities without drying or irritating your face to reveal a more youthful looking complexion. The FirmX Peeling Gel dulls away skin in under a minute so perfect for those busy career women or stay-at-home moms.
