Hollywood Tastemakers Favorite Things

Bookmark and Share Posted on 02/28/2012

Hollywood hairstylist Adir Abergel amongst other beauty tastemakers gathered their "favorite things" they swear by in March's Allure magazine. Adir likes to keep his styling kit neat and meticulously organized so he only wants the items that will get the job done fast and efficiently. A couple of his must-have items include a Mason Pearson brush to "leave a beatiful finish for straight hair" and Frederic Fekkai's Sheer Hold Hairspray because it "doesn't matte the hair and leaves a nice finish that you can still run your fingers through." Makeup artist Kate Lee mentioned her current essentials as well such as Kevyn Aucoin's Shading and Contouring Powder. Although she considers it a professional tool it really helps to create depth and dimension around the eye socket, cheekbones and jawline. There you have it, picks from the pros!

Natural Skin Care: How Essential Oils and Extracts Benefit Your Skin » -

RODIN Olio LussoIt may seem counterintuitive to apply oil as part of your skin care regimen. Many of us already have greasy complexions, so adding more oil seems counterproductive. And most women dislike oily textures on their skin. However, applying the right kinds of oils – i.e., essential oils – can make anyone’s skin more radiant. Certain plant extracts are known for their ability to encourage healthy skin. By selecting beauty products that are based on select botanical extracts and essential oils, you can achieve whatever goals you may have for your skin.

This is a beauty secret many celebrities already understand. For instance, Julianne Moore and Gwyneth Paltrow are loyal customers of fashion stylist Linda Rodin, who experimented with a plethora of essential oils to create a luxurious facial product based on eleven different skin-smoothing extracts. RODIN Olio Lusso is the result of her experimentation. It includes antioxidant and anti-inflammatory oils such as argan and calendula, along with fragrant essential oils such as jasmine, to create a sumptuous experience. Just a few drops of RODIN Olio Lusso applied morning and night to your freshly washed face and neck will smooth out and rejuvenate any type of skin.

Here are some of the other ways botanical oils can improve the skin:

Deep Healing

Many plants have healing qualities to encourage healthy skin. For instance, Skyn ICELAND offers Pure Cloud Cream to repair skin ravaged by wintery conditions. This light cream contains oat and aloe extracts to eliminate irritation and inflammation. Other Skyn ICELAND products contain willow bark extract, which is known for its anti-inflammatory, astringent and conditioning properties.

To understand the power behind RODIN Olio Lusso and other essential oil-based products, consider that oils easily penetrate to the dermal layer of skin, where new cells are created. This means essential oils can quickly heal damaged skin.
