My face is starting to lose its youthful appearance. How can I rejuvenate my look and instantly add lift to my wrinkles and folds?
As you grow older, you may start to notice changes in your skin’s appearance. Aging skin loses the support structure that keeps it supple and youthful. Collagen and elastin naturally begin to diminish. An unfortunate reality for every woman is seeing the start of wrinkles and creases, especially on a once-flawless face.
So what can you do to help keep that natural-looking, youthful appearance? Luckily, RADIESSE® injectable filler can help. RADIESSE helps improve your appearance by diminishing facial wrinkles and folds resulting in a more rejuvenated look.
What is RADIESSE?
While our lives are made up of our unique experiences, we never want them to show up on our face. Enhance your appearance with a natural, refreshed look. With RADIESSE, age is not just about a number, it becomes more about your unique state of mind.
Nailed it! Hot Tips on Tips
As the weather gets chillier and the days get shorter, color schemes inevitably transition to a more muted palette. However, there are still plenty of ways to have fun with winter nail trends—from moody blues to creamy nudes, this season’s most popular nail polish shades can help you update your look without breaking the bank.
Keep it cool for winter by trying classic dark nail colors with a twist: think blood reds, midnight blues, amethysts, and emerald greens. Not only do these rich shades immediately emulate a sultry, winter-appropriate look, they also complement the trendiest fashion statements of the upcoming season; leather and gold accessories are a perfect match for your fresh mani.
While elaborate and colorful nail art trends were all the rage this summer, sometimes a palette cleanser is in order. Consider cool-toned taupes, soft grays, and warm buffs or mushrooms for a fresh take on classic neutrals. Layer on a clear topcoat for a sleek and sophisticated shine, or try a matte topcoat for a unique and modern finish. Although these shades are more eye-catching than nudes or pale pinks, they are highly versatile and won’t interfere with your timeless everyday style.
Seen nearly everywhere on this year’s hottest runways, futuristic metallics are making their debut this winter. Both short and long nails can rock this look—try adding contrasting metal accessories to accent this bold trend. If you find an allover metallic manicure too loud for every day, a neutral manicure with a gold or silver accent nail is right on track for a classy but fashion-forward statement.
2015 Winter Trends
The cold season means bundling up, layering, and keeping warm, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style. Wondering what to put on your shopping list this winter? Take a hint from these hot trends that have all been designer-approved to wear right now!
When the weather turns, so does your choice in footwear. Bring your boots back to the front of the closet, and if you need a new pair this winter (or two, or three), a variety of trendy options are at your feet. Add a little drama with thigh-high boots that make your legs look miles long, or consider tried-and-true combat boots for a tougher and edgier look. Sleek ankle boots are a fashion go-to that can be easily dressed up or dressed down, providing any outfit a final finishing touch.
Sweaters this season are huge…literally. The sweater is getting a very chic makeover, and oversized cable knits and chunky Shaker cardigans are making their way from house-wear to high-fashion runways. Try pairing a thick knit pullover with a patterned collared shirt and ankle booties for a cozy, yet completely fashionable, ensemble.
The car coat embodies an overarching theme of this season: minimalist, oversized, and user-friendly with a playful hint of retro. Whether you prefer single or double breasted, collared or collarless, the ultra-flattering and classic silhouette will always be in style when you’re aiming for an elegant and polished look. However, instead of opting for dark neutrals that you would typically choose for outerwear, try on pretty pastels in this winter’s on-trend textiles, such as tweed or marled knit.
Healthy Food, Healthy You
Of course you’re committed to keeping yourself looking and feeling at your peak. A significant ingredient in achieving this goal is the foods you fuel yourself with.
A big trend this winter is pickled food. Humans have harnessed the power of beneficial bacteria for thousands of years. Bacteria not only can enhance the texture and flavor profile of fermented foods, it also promotes digestion and the health of the gastrointestinal tract. Today’s tables are being garnished with artisanal sauerkraut, home-made Korean-style kimchi, and pickled vegetables that are packed with flavor and encourage a healthy and properly functioning digestive system to boot.
Look beyond the standard supermarket supplies of pickled food—check the specialty shelves or deli counter and try discovering unique ingredients or spicing.
Remember: when your gut is in shape, you show it; fine-tune your diet with nature’s little digestion helpers.
