For these women life is looking good, at least on the outside. What do they have in common besides being mothers, red carpet muses, award winners and Hollywood power players? These women are all 40 and FAB-U-LOUS !! They also have the experience of life behind them and good beauty teams on their side. I have also heard the term “It takes a village, ” and so it does. More like an army really, an arsenal of beauty products follow these women from location to location and I’m sharing some of my favorite beauty brands that will keep your face and body looking just as fabulous!
EYES AND LIPS:
Let’s face it, women are doing it all and on top of it have to look like a goddess while doing it. When you’re run down and stressed out, the delicate skin under your eyes really takes a beating, resulting in puffiness and premature wrinkling. I highly recommend the SKYN Iceland’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels with HEXAPEPTIDE TECHNOLOGY to solve this problem. Cleanse skin and apply in the shower and in ten minutes, this cooling transdermal gel patch infuses the eye area with concentrated doses of soothing ingredients to firm, tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Peptides and botanicals improve blood flow and reduce puffiness while advanced antioxidants help prevent future damage. The patch, a cutting-edge delivery system, is easy apply and is non-irritating.
MOR’s Lip Macaron in Peach Nectar is on my list because lips often show the some of the first signs of aging losing their ample appearance. Filled with Vitamin E, Beeswax and other hydrating properties, this nourishing confection promotes a healthy, hydrated and supple lip.
Moisturizing is key in keeping skin’s youthful radiance. Here is food for thought, adding moisture to the skin and skin cells, is like adding water to a wrinkely and empty balloon. The water makes the balloon expand, the wrinkles in the balloon instantly disappear. Khiel’s Panthenol Protein Moisturizing Face Cream with Vitamin E and Beta Carotine is rich yet easily-absorbed nurturing moisturizer provides vitamin-derived Panthenol, a skin softener, as well as naturally-derived plant proteins with Vitamin E to moisturize and soothe dry skin. Khiel’s smooth formulation can be used day or night to soften and smooth the skin or for optimal skin maintenance anytime.
Clinique’s Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector is the ultimate low cost spot corrector. As women reach a more senior position in the age game, skin changes and sometimes we see dark spotting in addition to wrinkles. This miracle cream is dermatologist tested and developed to be safe, comfortable. In clinical trials our serum was comparable to a leading prescription ingredient in creating a more even skin tone-a verified 58% improvement for all skin tones. Studies show that women began to see results starting in just 4 weeks. At 12 weeks, see a visible reduction in dark spots, age spots, traces of acne past. Works on backs of hands and chest, too.
My must have item is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater. The mist is perfect for a bit of bedside refreshment, or a perfect pick me up while sitting in your office. The mist can be used anywhere at anytime – even over makeup! Simply formulated with fragrant Herbal Extracts and Rosewater is perfect for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin. Safe for all skin types. Gentle, non-irritating.
Hydrate – hydrate- hydrate ! The body needs moisture to keep it’s youthful appearance. Try L’OCCITANE’s Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream Apricot Flower. This body cream provides the ultimate moisturizing comfort to dry and dehydrated skin with a high concentration of Shea Butter (25%). The Shea Butter helps to protect and nourish the skin and restore its hydrolipidic film without leaving a greasy residue behind.
