It’s (of course) not just the products we use ON our skin that helps us fight the good fight, it’s what we put iN our bodies that can help our skin, too.

Make sure you’re eating the right ones! Health.com brings us the top ten antiaging foods:

  • Coffee (bio-actives can help fend off melanoma)
  • Watermelon
  • Pomegranate 
  • Blueberries
  • Lobster (woohoo! Did we even need another reason to love lobster? It’s anti-inflammatory effects can have a beneficial effect on the skin)
  • Kale
  • Eggs
  • Walnuts
  • Avocado
  • Cantaloupe (this one was a surprise to me, but beta carotene makes this one a win!)

Game Changing Kybella is FDA approved

Look for this double chin treatment at a cosmetic physician near you, coming soon!

From MedEstheticsmag.com:

KYBELLA injection (deoxycholic acid, KYTHERA Biopharmaceutcials), also known as ATX-101, has been FDA approved for contouring moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. KYBELLA is a nonhuman and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, the drug destroys fat cells. The approval was based on the results of over 20 clinical studies involving more than 2,600 male and female patients.

More Fun New Tech Toys: Beauty and Brains

LaCie Mirror Hardrive. 1TB of Fabulous

LaCie Mirror Hard drive. 1TB of Fabulous

Ok, say what you want about the $280 price tag on this gorilla glass-covered, French-designed, narcissist-fave hard drive but I think it’s fab!

The Lacie 1TB Seagate scratch-proof hard drive puts the fun in …um, backing up your computer. No… it puts the fab in … techy desktop accessories. No… Hmmm.

Well, I’d like to know what’s wrong with double-checking your lip gloss placement at your desk with a single glance before greeting a client? Or (more importantly) quickly verifying there is no spinach in your smile after a veg-friendly lunch? I think this is a fun and fabulous find.

Watch a quick vid of this pretty piece here:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U06KicKXg4Until

 

If that price tag causes you to frown, it’s time to touch up your BOTOX. …And/OR, you can experiment with a budget-friendly and creative mirror alternative: The Glam Screen. I gave this one a try after doing the above ^ double-checks on my actual phone for a while.

It’s tiring:

Unlock phone> Camera> Change the camera view to face yourself> Notice how weird and alien-like you look on the self-facing screen-side camera> check for spinach.

This is just too many steps for a girl on the go. Grab a glam screen and call it a day! 

Get Glam (and simultaneously check for stuff in your teeth) with Glam Screen!

Fun New Tech Toy: iPhone users, start your Mastercards!

Does anybody out there remember the LED lit mirror compact from BOTOX Cosmetic ‘back in the day’, (as they say)? The fun and light-hearted silver LED light-up compact was really novel and unique for its time.

nostalgia: the LED Botox mirror!

nostalgia: the LED Botox mirror!

That sense of fun and creativity in a beauty accessory has been something that I have tried to duplicate over the years. I’ve longed for that novelty pretty much since Allergan stopped making the chachkies (honorable mention: the rhinestone BOTOX baseball cap. RIP, cute and lightweight hat! You were PERFECT for the gym!)

Well, have no fear, the next generation of fun is here! Check out the Pearl compact mirror charger! This cutie comes in a pretty gift box and provides a full charge for iPhone 6! It started off as a kickstarter, check it out here: Kickstarter Pearl.

The Pearl: The best thing since, well... compacts and phone chargers??

I plan to jump on this product. We are multitasking all day long! Who wants to travel with a phone accessory (or beauty accessory, for that matter!) that doesn’t multi-task, too?

Until Next time, stay fabulous, my friends!

Obagi Aesethetics Leadership Community

I was honored to be recruited to join Obagi Medical Products’ Aesthetics Leadership Community last week.

The community is an advisory board and network comprised of 100 skin care professionals and practitioners from all over the US. Our kick-off meeting was in Las Vegas at the Wynn.

It was a great experience, they even had a barista just for our meeting group to provide ‘the serum of life’ (as I call it)! I had a blast and can’t wait to continue to contribute throughout 2015!

Here I am with a couple good friends, new and old!

Have you heard? HALO is the word!

Ok, I meant to post this a few weeks ago… time flies!! But I’m too excited about this technology to let this one sit in my ‘drafts’ folder any longer. Read on about our fabulous new laser technology!

Have you heard of HALO?

Here we are with Sonja from Sciton, who came out from San Francisco to to certify Jennifer and I on the new technology!

In a nutshell, it provides the results of an intense/major laser resurfacing, but without the downtime. I had one myself, and it was amazing! I will be posting more about it soon!
