This is where butter LONDON comes to the rescue with its latest innovation: stick-on nail skins. Remember the space-age cartoon “The Jetsons”? When the girls put on nail polish, it was applied in an instant and dried just as fast. This is kind of how nail skins work.

Nail Skin Options

As of February 2012, butter LONDON offers three nail skin designs: Leopard, Give & Take and Black Bird. The Leopard nail skin features the traditional animal print, with black spots on a yellowish-tan background. Give & Take is a skin with a beige background color and black letters that spell out the words “give” and “take.” Each letter is on an individual nail, and the extra nails have bird silhouettes. Black Bird has a black background with bright flowers and outlines of butter LONDON’s signature bird.

Why Your Hair Needs Sunscreen

Posted on 03/20/2012

Lavender Hair & Body ShampooWhile your hair can’t get skin cancer or become sunburned from the sun’s UVA and UVB lights, it still suffers from exposure. Being in the sun is like being under a heat lamp; your hair doesn’t have to feel hot to the touch in order to sustain damage. Some of the hottest names in the hair care industry – including Philip B. and Oscar Blandi – know this and have created products to keep your mane healthy and protected from the sun’s harmful rays.

How the Sun Damages Your Hair

When your tresses are exposed to the sun’s rays, especially on warmer days, your hair can begin to lose its natural moisture and shine. This happens because the heat in the sun slowly breaks down proteins in the shafts that help your hair stay hydrated, flexible and healthy. If you blow dry your hair, or curl or straighten it with heated styling tools, the damage caused is exacerbated when your hair is exposed to the sun. The same is true if you have dyed your hair, had a perm or had your curly locks relaxed.

Classic Hollywood Stars Inspire Make-Up Design

Posted on 03/21/2012

Grace Kelly - Wikimedia Commons ImageThe early days of American cinema showcased the flawless skin and undeniable style of actresses such as Grace Kelley, Marilyn Monroe and silent film star Ava Gardner. Such classic fashion icons will always inspire women. After looking at only a few close-up shots of such actresses as Audrey Hepburn and Greta Garbo, it becomes eminently clear that superb skin is central to classic Hollywood beauty. Back then, of course, actresses and models couldn’t rely on Photoshop to erase blemishes; the cameras picked up every little flaw.

Perfectly coiffed yet soft hair was another Hollywood must-have. And pouty, full lips were a key part of the equation, as well. This article examines how you can attain the dewy skin, luscious locks and sexy lips of vintage Hollywood stars.

Many of Hollywood’s original icons shared one thing in common: their dermatologist. Erno Laszlo provided skincare for a constellation of stars and famous women, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Greta Garbo, Ava Gardner, the Duchess of Windsor, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Indeed, pictures of Marilyn Monroe’s death scene showed several Erno Laszlo products on her nightstand. These and other Hollywood stars depended on Erno Laszlo products to keep their skin looking fresh and flawless. Greta Garbo is rumored to have been gently reprimanded by Erno Laszlo after failing to consistently apply his skin-care routine. Laszlo had a notorious sense for when his starlets were sporadic in their skin-care routines; he emphasized the importance of nourishing one’s skin every day.

Now you, too, can enjoy the skin of a classic Hollywood star, thanks to the Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection. Erno Laszlo launched his dermatology practice back in 1927; to celebrate the 85th anniversary of this date, the brand named after the trusted skin doctor released the Erno Laszlo Hollywood Collection, a group of five luxurious skin-care formulas inspired by Hollywood’s greatest leading ladies.

Get Skin like Katherine Hepburn’s
