City Pulse

By P.J. Gach

You want to keep your lips luscious looking all year long. Most of the time upkeep is easy; slick on some lip balm with an SPF, follow with your lipstick or gloss, then go. Winter is brutal for your skin, and your lips can take it especially hard. They get chapped, itchy and need extra special care.

Grab The LipKit, not only is it your defense against the elements, it’s the secret to great sexy, healthy lips.

The LipKit contains five products that will make your lips look plump, full and kissable. Start your regimen with the Lip Renew stick. It’s an exfoliator that gently removes dead skin. Before you sleep and anytime during the day, apply Lip Dew on your lips. It’s a Vitamin E stick that you can wear with lipstick for extra shine. It does double duty and can be applied to anywhere on your face that has a bit of dryness. The Lip Fill is a wand that you can use all year long to prevent feathering and conditions your lips at the same time. If you’re looking for full plump lips a la Angelina Jolie or Kim Bassinger, use the Lip Plumper. It helps your lips look full and sexy. You’ll feel a little tingle as they get fuller. To keep your lipstick on longer, seal it with Lip Keep. It locks in your color, so you wear it and your coffee cup doesn’t.

The kit comes in a small zippered mesh bag; just throw it in your bag and go. It’s so easy to use and the results are immediate. The Lip Dew is especially nice to have in this weather. The Vitamin E is a wonderful barrier against the elements, it’s weightless, unscented and gives a nice gloss to your lips.

The LipKit was created by Dr. Bruce G. Freund. He is a cosmetic and restorative dentist. Dr. Freund has been on the faculty of both Mt. Sinai and NYU Dental Schools, is an authority on veneers and a was named one of “America’s Top Dentists” in a survey taken by Consumer’s Research Council of America for the years 2002 – 2003 and 2003-2004. Dr. Fruend has created the first Lip Clinic and Spa. This Spa is in his practice, The NJ Center for Cosmetic, Laser & Implant Dentistry in New Jersey.

Oh Baby it’s cold outside! You can’t feel your face, and you’ve got so many layers on, you can’t move. So, what are you doing to keep your pooch warm in this hellacious weather? Are you throwing a mini horse blanket over your dog? This winter, think bright colors, cheerful appliques and fun trims for your fur baby.
