From 3LAB, comes their new Perfect Neck Cream. Active ingredients include their famous bio-engineered growth hormone, along with other potent ingredients like zinc, copper, magnesium, herbal extracts, amino acids and too many more to name. Used daily, the anti-oxidant cream will moisturize, help even out skin tone, and minimize the signs of past environmental damage. Bring on those cleavage baring cashmeres!

For me, November is the official start of the holiday season, and I love to begin each and every new season with a fabulous facial and some new skin care products. Guinot Institute the almost half a century old French skin care company has created a new Liftosome Treatment Facial that’ll lift your spirits while it energizes, tightens and makes your skin glow. It starts with a cleansing, and then a pro-collagen face concentrate is applied, a Thermalift face mask is applied which slowly heats to allow the face concentrate to really penetrate. Then, some neck and back massage with some fabulous Guinot creams and I was relaxed as jello. Afterwards, the mask is removed and an anti-aging serum chock full of bio peptides is massaged into the skin, for yet another little slice of heaven. While I wished I could have taken the esthetician home with me, I could only take home the products, which I’ve been using every since to keep my visage looking as pretty as a beautiful ornament. Get the treatment and/or buy the products at any of these spas trained in the Guinot Liftosome Treatment Facial. And for more info go to: http://www.guinotusa.com

We all know that Retinoids are the best products to actually remove wrinkles as well as the effects of sun damage on our skins. The only problem with the expensive prescription only product is how much to use. Traditionally, it’s always come in a tube and it’s easy to waste money by using too much, or too little. Finally, we have some guidance! Renova has cleverly put it into a pump bottle. Two shots and your face is fully covered with the miracle cream. I spoke with Dr. David J. Goldberg who shared some information with me. He informed me it can be used day or night – I prefer night – and you’ll see more radiant after approximately 12 weeks and disappearing fine wrinkles after 24 weeks. He said, “For maximum benefit, wash face and then make sure it’s thoroughly dry, at least five minutes before applying the Renova. Then wait at least five more minutes so the product really penetrates before adding any other moisturizer or sunscreen over it”.
With this new 44 gram bottle, you’ll have enough product for six months.

Oh you sensitive types! One dollop of the wrong cream on your face and you’re red for days. And it always happens on the day you have a job interview or a date with someone new…..or both! With the change of seasons, it now gets even worse. Face the day with a soft dewy complexion with Sensitive Touch by Lumene from Finland, where they know about sensitive skin. Created with 100% organic linen seed which strengthens skin while reducing redness, the cream was developed with the Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation and doesn’t contain any alcohol, fragrance, parabens, silicon, or paraffin oil. I also learned it protects skin while in the sauna. Oh, those Finns!
