Perk Up Your Morning, Perk Up Your Skin

Coffee has always been touted as an energy pick me up. Whether for energy or for routine, most people cannot get their day started until they have their morning cup of coffee. With this in mind, caffeine has enter the beauty market on several different fronts. From facials where brewed coffee is incorporated with the skincare to products such as eye creams that reduce puffiness, coffee is more than just an energy pick me up.

Coffeeberry is a very important antioxidant that helps to benefit the skin. Research has found that some of the benefits of products infused with coffeeberry range from depuffing the eyes, fighting the war against cellulite, to reducing some UV-exposure damage with the help of sunscreen. Caffeine is also great for sensitive skin and those suffering from rosacea by reducing swelling and calming down redness. With all these benefits, why not add caffeine to your daily skincare regime? Check out Sephora for some great products that take advantage of this revolutionary breakthrough.

"On your wedding day you should look like yourself at your most beautiful." -Bobbi Brown

Pretty Is As Pretty Does

This picture contains two of my favorite things...Mary J. Blige's new cd "Growing Pains" and the color pink! This color is the newest to the iPod Nano family. Although I am a fan of and encourage serious music lovers to purchase what is known now as the iPod Classic, this little ditty is perfect if you are new to the Apple family or already have an Ipod you use for the house or in the car. Purchase this as a Valentines' Day gift for your daughter, sister, niece or give it to yourself. Starting at $149. you can hold a 1000 songs (4GB) or 2000 (8GB) and "Work It" til your hearts content.
Until next time Beauties....you've been marked!

Say NO! NO! to Unwanted Hair

With summer fast approaching, it is time to get our bodies hair free, soft and smooth. Enter NO! NO! the newest hair removal gadget to hit the market. NO! NO! is a revolutionary new tool that removes hair by thermal transference- basically it zaps the hair with a gentle pulse of heat. It is safe for all hair types and skin tones. This is important for those with olive to dark skin because traditional techniques such as laser and electrolysis have been known to scar the skin. One of the advantages of NO!NO! is that you don't have to wait until your hair grows back like a sasquatch to do your next treatment. Like with any hair removal procedure, consistancy is key. The more you use it, the softer and slower the hair will grow back. The disadvantage of NO! NO! is that it cannot be used on the face, which for someone who is not a candidate for electrolysis or laser, this is a disappointment. NO!NO! can be purchased at Sephora.com and HSN.com for $250. So ladies, say NO!NO! to hairy legs, underarms and bikini area, and say YES! YES! to soft, smooth, glowing skin.
