With Spring almost in full bloom, why not use this time to do a little ‘Cleaning’ and I’m not talking about busting out the pine sol! Lets try some new things this season. Maybe try to shed a little of that winter weight? Let’s Focus on making some better choices going into this new season, almost like a new fresh chapter of your life.
For starters let’s get rid of those few extra pounds we added over the holidays. My suggestions are… Join www.myfitnesspal.com Its an amazing site that counts your calories for you. All you have to do is implement your information and it will tell you exactly what you need to do to get rid of that extra weight.
Then, start moving more! There’s no excuses! It’s getting nicer outside, so get out there and take a walk- enjoy the outdoors. Pay attention to the little things, there’s a bunch of extra things you can do at home to get the ball in motion. Check out the may2011 issue of GLAMOUR that had some amazing at home exercises I bet most of us could do in 30 min’s a day.
Clean up around here!Go buy some new make-up and face products. This is the perfect time to throw out that old stuff that is waaay overdue, I’m sure. Most make up has a shelf life of 3-6 months and under! Don’t take a chance… you could be really sorry later.
Did you guys see this!? Bare Escentuales/minerals is launching a new skincare line! This company is highlyrecommended for their amazing make-up, and has millions of fans all over the world. I’m sure their new skin care line (Made of dirt by the way! EWWW!!) is going to be FAB! Check out the aritcle on it http://www.stylelist.com/2011/03/02/bare-escentuals-bare-minerals-skin-care-line/
Bare Escentuals may be best known for popularizing mineral makeup, but now the brand is looking to cause a new revolution with its first foray into skin care.
Rolling out to retailers during the month of March, the new line of cleansers, moisturizers, antiaging treatmentsand blemish zappers boast a proprietary RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex that harnesses the power of minerals found in soil to replenish skin and increase cell turnover.
Yep, that’s right — this is going to be a little like putting dirt on your face.
Hey, we pay good money for spas to mask us in the stuff, don’t we? Maybe Bare Escentuals is on to something here.
The brand claims the antioxidant punch of its new formula outperforms both blueberries and pomegranates — both often cited for their super antioxidant powers.
“Our bodies don’t create minerals. We have to look to food to get our minerals, and health issues can even arise when you’re lacking in them. The over 70 minerals used in our new line come from virgin soil, where it’s extracted into a liquid form,” said a brand spokesperson at the New York launch of the new line.
In keeping with the brand’s back-to-nature San Francisco roots, all products are free of parabens, artificial oils and synthetic fragrances.
The most unique find in the line will no doubt be the Pure Transformation Night Treatment, which is a revamp of the brand’s best-selling Skin Revival Treatment. Containing vitamins A, C and E in addition to white tea and emblica fruit, the powder exfoliates skin in similar fashion to a retinol. And like the original, you can select from clear or a variety of light-diffusing shades if some natural coverage is what you want when hitting the sheets — perhaps because you have company.
The prize for most offbeat ingredient goes to the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, enriched with the South African Resurrection Plant that is so powerful, it springs back to life with just a drop of water — so the story goes. Honey, jojoba and apricot-kernel oil join the fabled plant for a hydrating blend that also includes the antioxidant protection of red tea, green tea, coffee and licorice. A more emollient Purely Nourishing Cream will also be available for dry skin types.
And if you like the squeak of clean, you’ll enjoy the cleanser-heavy selection of three types from which to choose. The Purifying Cleanserclarifies skin with a blend of pineapple, lychee, guava and kiwi fruit enzymes, while the Deep Cleansing Foam hydrates with avocado oil and gentle cleansers derived from palm-kernel oil. Finally, the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser doubles as an exfoliating mask that pulls away impurities with Chilean soap bark, colloidal oatmeal and rice powder.
Will Bare Escentuals strike gold again with skin care? We’ll have to wait and see if the mineral makeup divas put down their kabuki brushes to venture a try.
