Magnetic Aries loves to be the center of attention, especially at parties. For Halloween, she dresses to guarantee that all eyes are on her! That means that her skin must be beyond flawless. This year, she’ll take it there with emerginC’s new Red Carpet Primer. Subtly tinted and infused with natural ingredients that hydrate, plump and terrify free radicals, this wrinkle reducer extraordinaire uses vegetal and hyaluronic filling spheres to turn her skin to silk. Silkify yours at leading spas, www.emerginc.com or www.skinstore.com. emerginC will donate 20% of Red Carpet Primer sales in October to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national non-profit for women and families affected by breast cancer.
