"For some reason, we assume that as long as we're using a cleanser and applying sunscreen, we're doing "enough." Well, as it turns out, enough is not good enough if it's glowing, radiant skin you're after."
"According to doctors Gina and Sid Dinesh, dermatologists in Beverly Hills, Calif., adding exfoliation to your skin care routine helps the natural shedding process of skin and encourages healthier, smoother, more even-toned, and clearer skin. Some of the big beauty benefits? Acne prevention, smaller pores, wrinkle reduction, and it even helps all those fancy (read: spendy) moisturizers actually absorb into the skin."
"So you've decided that you want to give exfoliation a try (good girl), or you're unhappy with your current face scrub. You've come to the right place. Since it can be overwhelming to sift through the hundreds of scrubs and exfoliation products out there in a quest to find the best one, we've done the work for you. We rounded up a complete list of the best and worst face scrubs according to our Total Beauty readers." From Total Beauty.com

"Now, in my role as expensive product counsel, I'm not saying you should ditch your beloved La Prairies and La Mers, there are reasons high-end brands cost more, from luxurious ingredients to fancy -- and sometimes functional -- packaging. Believe me, if I could, I'd buy them."

Even the most luxurious locks can be hindered by the presence of flakes. And no matter how hard you try to shake them out or pick them out, there always seems to be more to take their place. So, the best way to finally ditch the flakes is to use a good anti-dandruff shampoo like one of the new Suave Scalp Solutions!
Unfortunately, anti-dandruff shampoos have the bad reputation of being drying on strands as well as leaving hair looking and feeling limp and lack luster. However, unlike its "harsh" predecessors, the new Suave Scalp Solutions not only leaves hair flake free but it makes hair feel soft, well nourished and full of body and movement. The Suave Scalp Solutions collection includes the "Nourishing Coconut and Shea Butter", "Invigoration Mint and Eucalyptus" and "Invigorating Ocean Minerals and Aloe". I recently received a complimentary sample of the Coconut and Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner from Suave and I found that it left my hair flake free and I loved how it made my hair shiny, bouncy and soft, root to tip. I plan on sharing these new Suave products with my daughter who also occasionally notices flakes in her hair, I know she is going to love them! Check the new Scalp Solutions from Suave and let me know what you think of them. Till then! B.
Suave Scalp Solutions Nourishing Coconut & Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner
"Clinically proven to fight flakes, leaving hair looking healthy, shiny and moisturized with the great scent of Coconut & Shea Butter."
"Gentle enough for everyday use. For best results, use the Shampoo & Conditioner together as a system."
My mom is getting older and doesn’t get out so much anymore. She lives alone, but I talk to her at least once a day on the phone. She used to be very active and run all over town all the time. I couldn’t even keep up with her. But lately she has slowed down a lot. I guess that is what happens when you get in your eighties. My whole life my mom has always been very active in her church. Now she has gotten to where she doesn’t feel comfortable driving at night, and she won’t drive if the weather is bad. So she spends a lot of time at home, even on Sundays. I recently started telling her about different church broadcasts that she could watch on her Grand Rapids directv. She watches two or three different ones each Sunday. One of her favorite church services to watch is Joel Osteen’s church. He is such a young dynamic minister. My mom actually knew his dad who was also a minister a long time ago. I guess that is why she feels a connection with him.
"I will never have her Jessica Rabbit-like figure or her sultry eyes, no matter how many hours I log at the gym or in front of my bathroom mirror with the best eyeliner."
"There is one Sofia asset I can attempt to copy quickly and without dropping a few months' pay: her pearly whites. Dentists across the country say a mere month is plenty of time to transform your smile -- if you know the right tips."
"I'm not talking about the stuff you've heard a million times before -- brush twice a day, floss, and head to the dentist twice a year. I talked to dentists and periodontists to find out all the other things you should be doing for your teeth, and how to avoid the biggest dental health saboteurs."
"So if you, too, want to look like Sofia Vergara (or insert your celeb girl crush here), here's a little hint: Focus on copying her smile. Here's how." From Total Beauty.com

"You see, since 1963, the second month of the year has been deemed American Heart Month by the American Heart Association. The AHA, in association with the President of the United States, launched the program to help raise awareness about the cardiovascular diseases -- specifically strokes -- that kill more than a million of us each year."
"Happily, there are steps (including diet and exercise) that we can take to help reduce the risks of developing these diseases and there are even a bunch of nutrient-rich foods that experts recommend we all eat to help stave off cardiovascular -- and other -- illnesses."
"To get the full scoop on precisely which beauty bonuses we can expect from eating the top heart healthy foods, we talked to three experts in the field. "TODAY Show" health and nutrition expert Joy Bauer, plastic surgeon (and anti-aging and rejuvenation authority) Dr. Frank J. Ferrin and nutritionist (specializing in beauty) Paula Simpson were all happy to help educate us on the benefits to be reaped from eating these "wonder" foods. After all, clichád as it may sound, you are what you eat and, as Simpson says, when it comes to beauty, "It all starts with what you put into your body." From Total Beauty.com

(He's styled Olivia Wilde, Nicole Kidman, and the Victoria's Secret Angels, so I figure he knows a thing or two on this subject.) For makeup, celebrity makeup artist Linda Hay says anything goes as long as your skin is glowing." From Total Beauty.com

The celebrity trainer keeps things fresh and fun (and tones more muscles) by using a variety of exercises and equipment, including Pilates moves, boxing, medicine balls, and exercise bands. “The exercise bands allow the client to work on improving the elasticity of the muscle along with stretching and strengthening it,” Gelband says."

"I'm so excited for this trip that I've already started packing, and after stuffing the last bikini into my carry-on, I had an epiphany: I'm more psyched about my toiletries than my wardrobe. In the last few months, I've come across a handful of really great products. The best part? They're all TSA-approved. Here's what's in my cute toiletries case" From Total Beauty.com

According to hairstylist to the Victoria's Secret models, Orlando Pita, " The sexiest hair is shiny and has a side part." Nothing high maintenance, just simple, loose natural looking waves with lots of shine and lived in texture. When it comes to the Victoria's Secret models sexy makeup " Black around the eyes is the sexiest look" says Tom Pecheux who "stroked on thin black lines" and used "Rodin Olio Lusso face oil and Estee Lauder DayWear Creme plus a dusting of bronzer and rosy blush." to give the models their sexy look. As for sexy skin, the Victoria's Secret models always rock that quintessential dewy, bronzy glowing skin. To help you get that same kind of glow, check out the Charlotte Ronson A Summer's Kiss Face and Body Glow and skip the over-baked tanning bed tan.
"Oh sorry, did we say "honest"? We meant materialistic. Oops. Well, the point is that sometimes we ladies can't help but fantasize about flash dancing in satin blue Blahniks, shielding our eyes from harsh rays with a pair of aviator Pradas or tooling down Sunset Blvd. in a soft top Bentley. It's not our fault we're like this… damn you Jennifer Lopez."
"Seriously though, there is something about wearing a label that makes us feel special and we believe it's the "luxury" factor -- the "this product costs more so it has to be better than others" factor. And, this factor plays a key role in women purchasing and showing off expensive clothing, eyewear, bags, shoes, and other accessories. But how about beauty products?"
"It's semi-understandable to pay upwards of two hundred dollars for a pair of plastic sunglasses just for the "Made in Italy" inscription and bedazzled brand name on your forehead because you and everyone knows the glasses are expensive, right? But when it comes to your lipstick, mascara, or bar of soap, no one knows how much you spent on it unless they are rummaging through your bathroom looking for the Vicodin. Which is why, when it comes to expensive beauty products, you'd better be buying them purely based on the fact that they ARE better than less-expensive varieties."
"Scrolling through our reader's reviews, it becomes obvious that a lot of these high-end beauty products are worth the investment. These are the highest-rated luxury products that women say are worth every last penny." From Total Beauty.com

What every woman needs in a her skin care product line-up is a great cleanser, moisturizer (a separate eye cream is not necessary), exfoliator and one special treatment for items like dark circles, age spots, etc.. Once you figure out your skin type and which skin care products works best for your skin, you will find that you do not need to use many products to get good results. In fact, certain products when used together, can actually cause these products to be less effective then if they were used alone. So be sure to check with a skin care professional before using multiple skin care products.
Choose a cleanser that is formulated specifically for your skin type like oily skin, dry skin or aging skin. Remember that one cleanser definitely does NOT fit all. The next essential product is a gentle exfoliator. Harsh exfoliators can irritate sensitive skin and may cause skin to look worse. Rather, opt for a gentle exfoliator to remove dull skin, deep cleanse pores and make skin more radiant. Also, all skin needs a moisturizer, yes, even oily skin.
Taking the time to find a moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type /concerns can make all the difference in the appearance of your skin.The key to moisturizing is finding the right moisturizer that is created for your skin concerns. And finally, using extra speciality product like one that helps to fade dark circles, de-puff eyes, or minimize fine lines and wrinkles will help to bring out the best in your skin. Just remember to keep it simple when it comes to creating a skin care routine for yourself.
"I have dealt with weight issues my whole life -- I still do to this day," she says. The 30-year-old production coordinator has a thyroid condition that slows her metabolism, making it difficult for her body to burn calories. What's more, Wendy has also struggled with depression and anxiety, which caused her to "stress-eat," she says. "I would cry after compulsively eating and ask myself, 'why did I do that?' Losing weight has definitely been a mental and physical obstacle for me.
