Green has never looked so good. Not the shade my dears but the lifestyle. Eco conscious and environmentally friendly beauty products are hotter than ever, especially since the stigma that organic beauty products aren't as good have been proven wrong again and again with brands like Vapour Organic Beauty, Rahua, Shea Terra Organics and our latest arrival, Ilia! This wonderful brand, with a focus on lip loving, has earned the admiration from Elle magazine in their 2012 Green Stars, an annual guide to the best natural beauty buys.
Ilia's Lipstick was included in the Saturday Night Fever section, or, earth friendly picks for a night out on the town. The formulations are highly pigmented as well as super hydrating and come in a variety of fashion forward lip shades that can be worn alone or layered to create your own signature lip color. We love the bold shades Arabian Nights and Bang Bang!

Not only is the skin your body’s largest organ – it is an external organ that can demonstrate your age. The effects of aging will always take a toll on your skin, but your habits can dictate the speed of its deterioration. By taking good care of your skin with healthy habits and products like RODIN olio lusso, you can prolong the aging process.
Dryness. As you age, your skin gets drier because your body slowly loses the ability to naturally create moisturizing oils.
Thinning. As the skin loses the fatty layer below the epidermis, it becomes thinner. The slower regeneration of skin cells as you age can also cause thinning. Sun exposure speeds up the thinning process and breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin.
Sagging. Gravity paired with altered hormone levels and decreased levels of skin fat, elastin and collagen will make your skin sag. Taking care your skin now with healthy habits and a comprehensive skin care routine can help delay sagging.
Age spots. Simply put, age spots (or liver spots) are sun spots. Your body creates them in response to sun exposure to protect the deeper layers of your skin. Prevent their appearance by always wearing a moisturizer with an SPF component and by staying out of the sun.
Wrinkles. In your 30s and 40s, you start to develop wrinkles because of a lifetime of muscle and skin movements. In your 50s, your wrinkles can become more prominent as your skin starts to sag. Smoking and sun exposure speed up the development of wrinkles.
Whether it's undergarments that smooth out bumps and lumps, push up bras that give us a little extra something-something, or tightening body serums; we all have our areas that we don't feel are perfect. As famous etiquette coach and red lipstick wearing Mary Poppins once said, we are all, "practically perfect in every way," however what's wrong with trying to fix the areas that aren't so….flawless?
Usually I charge the big bucks for this, but for you I'm going to give the insider tip because summer is almost here and we could all use a little help. If you want to fake a flawless body then you have two fantastic options:
The Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 is a high performance body enhancer that will transform the appearance of arms, legs and décolleté instantly. Choose from three different shades that smooth and firm the designated area and uses M3 Complex to create a more even appearance. Best of all, it's non greasy and also serves as a powerful moisturizer and skin rejuvenator!
Second is my personal fav, Prtty Peaushun Skin Tightening Body Lotion. You may have heard gals like Gwyneth Paltrow and celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson gushing about this tinted body lotion that is comparable to a magic wand that makes all your body insecurities disappear. It utilizes subtle light reflecting particles to create a gorgeous, flattering glow and create a sexy and slimmer silhouette. What I love most about it is that it camouflages cellulite and varicose veins like nobody's business! Choose from an assortment of shades that will enhance any tan or if you don't want any color, just the glow then you have that option too!
