range of top brands and cosmetics to fill your need for beauty.
- Have a too blue based
lipstick? Mix a dot of yellow concealer into your lipstick, or apply a
yellow-based loose powder on clean lips, and apply lipstick on top. There will
be just enough warmth in the product to take the edge off a too cool/blue
- Want to update your lipsticks to the new
cool blue based tones? Apply a navy blue eye pencil, or eye shadow on lips and
apply your lipstick on top....just a little will do and you'll have a new
shade. A soft, brown eye shadow applied on lips first will darken any too
- Make your own deep lipstick color by
mixing blue eye shadow and red blush on your lips. Apply a lip balm on top and
you're set. The most fun part is that every time you try this, you can
experiment and get a different version every time.
- Use your shimmer highlighter sticks from
spring/summer to highlight lipsticks. Apply on a clean mouth first, and then
your dull lipstick on top. An instant frosted shade.
- The color of the moment is the 'bitten'
lip look. Just take your rosy blush and apply dry on lips. Apply your Vitamin
E stick, or gloss on top with a lip blush. Gel cheek colors work great for
- A quick dusting of shimmering body powder
or an iridescent eye shadow over the high points of the face, (cheekbones,
chin, top of nose, eyelids, across forehead..) a quick day to night look.
- A model told me this trick! She runs a
Gold Shimmer stick through her blonde hair! Instant shimmer and highlights,
especially around the face....
- Use a Concealer Pencil on your lips
first, fill in, and then apply an old, dark lipstick. The concealer pencil
lightens up the lipstick by about 3-4 shades....
- A warm brick eyeshadow is the perfect all
over color for lips, cheeks, eyes and a little lip gloss on top and you're
- Find a blush brush that perfectly fits
the size of the apple of your cheek when you smile. Anything bigger than that
and you'll get blush where you don't want it. You really don't need a huge
blush brush for color, those are meant for shimmery powders.........
- Pick up your blush by lightly tapping the
blush with the tips of the bristles. If you are sweeping the brush across the
color, you'll pick up about 10 x more color than you need, and you waste a lot
of product. Just tap the ends of the bristles about 2-3 times onto the color.
Shake off any excess. You should barely be able to see the color on the brush.
Don't worry, you do have enough on!
- When applying blush, don't "sweep" or
"stroke" the color across the cheeks. You'll usually end up streaking the
color on, and then having to go back to 'correct' and 'blend'. Instead, smile,
and tap on gently going across your cheeks. By tapping the color onto the
brush, and then tapping in onto the cheeks........ you'll avoid excess color,
streaking and more. Tapping on blends the color for you and you can always add
more if you want.
- Always swipe your blush brush across a
Kleenex to clean off any excess, or pick up your powder brush (with no extra
powder on) and sweep over and blend your blush into your skin. You'll get a
softer, more 'real' look to your blush.
- OOPS! Okay, you look like a clown, wrong color, too much........now what?
Easy! With a clean dry beauty sponge, pick up a light layer of loose powder and 'erase'
as much off as possible. Too bright or too dark? Take a slightly dampened
sponge and clean off as much as you can. The water will pick upand 'dilute'
the color.........it just may be enough to fix it and look ok! "Blush!"--

THE AGING PROCESS
The aging process begins when we enter the world
and the effects of aging are evident in our bodies through out
our lives. Beginning in our 20’s, the signs of aging start to
become noticeable. Genetically programmed chronologic aging causes
changes in collagen and elastin, the connective tissues that supply
firmness and elasticity to the skin. The genetic program of individuals
is different, so the loss of skin firmness and elasticity occurs
at different rates and different times in one individual as compared
to another. As skin becomes less elastic, it also becomes drier
and underlying fat padding begins to disappear. With the loss
of underlying support by fat padding and connective tissues, the
skin begins to sag; it appears less supple and wrinkles form.
Although wrinkles, lines and age spots are formed by the natural
effects of getting older, one way to prevent them from appearing
early on in life is to avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreens
with SPFs 15 or higher. And, although most of us have some form
of sun-damaged skin, there are ways to regain healthy, smooth
skin. After many years of research, scientists, dermatologists
and plastic surgeons have discovered that a variety of natural
ingredients and vitamin extracts significantly help slow down
and even reverse the signs of aging skin. These ingredients are
now found in many physician developed and physician recommended
anti-aging skin care products, which are specified below. Vitamin
A (Retinol) - Topical Vitamin A has been suggested to help
build collagen fibers within the skin in addition to its more
superficial exfoliating property. This is the basis for its use
in minimizing the appearance of fine wrinkle lines. Vitamin A
or Retinol is the main ingredient found in TYK Young Again, M.D.
Forte, DDF and SkinScience products. Vitamin
C - Vitamin C or ascorbic acid acts as an antioxidant and
is considered vital in wound healing because it aids in stabilizing
collagen. When applied topically, vitamin C can reduce fine lines
and wrinkles and may lessen the severity of sunburns. This healing
ingredient is found in SkinCeuticals, Cellex C and Obagi Cffectives
skin care products. Vitamin
E - Vitamin E is another antioxidant that shows to have anti-inflammatory
effects on the skin. When applied topically, vitamin E has been
shown to improve moisturization, softness and smoothness and also
provides modest photo protection. Vitamin E is found in Cellex
C, Exuviance and MD Forte products. Alpha
Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) - AHAs are designed to smooth fine lines
and surface wrinkles, to improve skin texture and tone, to unblock
and cleanse pores, to improve oily skin or acne, and to improve
skin condition in general. AHAs are the main ingredients found
in MD Forte, TYK Young Again, Super Skin and SkinScience products.
Acid - Glycolic acid is the most active and beneficial of
the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHAs) in skin care. Once inside the cells,
the acid triggers new formations of collagen to plump cells and
the ground substances in the skin to reduce wrinkles on the skin’s
surface. Glycolic acid is proven to be very effective in the treatment
of acne as well as in cosmetic uses. Glycolic acid is found in
products by Gly Derm, MD Forte, Z. Bigatti and Super Skin. N-6
furfuryladenine (kinetin) - The nature-identical plant growth
factor, furfuryladenine, retards the aging of plant cells as well
as in vitro human skin fibroblasts. This natural, anti-aging ingredient
has been proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and is exclusively
found in Kinerase creams and lotions. This is a proven alternative
for people with sensitive skin or people who are sensitive to
products containing Retinol and Vitamin C. Copper Peptides – Copper
Peptides are the latest scientific breakthrough in skin rejuvenation.
Copper has been found to naturally firm the skin, enhance elasticity,
and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Copper is the main ingredient
in products by Neova and Osmotics. Pal-KTTKS
- Pal-KTTKS is an effective ingredient for reducing fine lines
and wrinkles. It’s found to promote a smoother, younger complexion
quickly, without with out expensive and painful chemical peels,
surgery or injections. This patented peptide solution is found
in StriVectin-SD. Green
Tea Extract - Green tea’s anti-inflammatory and anti-growth
qualities are found in many skin care products designed to reduce
the appearance of puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines and large pores.
Green Tea is found in the Dr. Brandt skin care line, Z. Bigatti
and Gly Derm products. TNS
- The biotechnology of the skin's natural healing process has
arrived with the first tissue repairing complex containing growth
factors found in normal, healthy skin. Unlike anything else currently
on the market, TNS is the next level of skin rejuvenation that
delivers dramatic results, for smoother, softer, younger looking
skin. TNS is found in SkinMedica’s TNS Recovery Complex. Many
customers ask which anti-aging product is best and we always respond
by saying that there is no “best” product. Since every individual’s
skin is different, the results of using anti-aging products will
be different as well. We recommend that you consult with a skin
care professional prior to use of any new skin care product to
determine your skin type, skin condition and possible sensitivities
to active ingredients. Your skin care professional may recommend
specific products, or you can try a few on your own based on your
consultation. If you are not happy with the first product you
try, try another one. It’s important that you choose a product
and skin care regimen that makes you feel 100% comfortable with
the look and feel of your skin. Customers also inquire about when
they should expect to see results from using anti-aging products.
Again, we respond by saying that results will be different for
each individual, generally due to the condition of one’s skin
prior to use. However, across the board, we say not to expect
a miracle, as there is no anti-aging product on the market that
provides overnight results. Whether you are trying to reduce the
appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness or
age spots, the process is gradual and takes anywhere from 4 to
8 weeks depending on the severity of your problem areas. After
allowing the products time to take effect as well as following
product directions, you can be sure to notice significant improvement
in the appearance of your skin. To see the quickest results, you
will have to undergo professional cosmetics procedures. While
procedures such as laser treatments, injections and dermabrasion
produce the fastest, most noticeable improvements, they are all
are somewhat painful or uncomfortable and very costly. In addition,
pre and post treatment plans are required to achieve maximum results,
which consist of using skin care products, that are also proven
to be safe, effective, painless and less expensive alternatives
to professional cosmetic procedures. Please note that with the
use of any new skin care product, it is highly possible that your
skin will react to the ingredients. You may experience irritation,
redness, dryness or a mild breakout, which should only last for
the first 3-5 days of use. If you experience any of these reactions
for a longer period of time, please discontinue use and consult
a skin care professional. It is also recommended that prior to
using any new skin care product to consult with a skin care professional.
