Morning Glamour was born in 2011, when Kristen Lantz and her sister had an epiphany after switching to satin pillowcases. They realized that satin offers a surprising amount of beauty benefits, from tame morning hair to fewer wrinkles. The difference was so palpable, they realized that they were getting real “beauty sleep.” It was then that they determined that satin pillowcases should be sold in beauty aisles everywhere. Thus came Morning Glamour, the company that redefines how you rest. Morning Glamour pillowcases provide a smoother surface for your hair strands, which reduces matting, breakage, tangling, and snagging. Cotton pillowcases suck moisture from your skin (translation: that $90.00 face cream you put on at night is hydrating your pillow, not your face.) Satin pillowcases are non-absorbent, helping your skin maintain maximum moisture. They also help prevent wrinkles, allowing you to wake up with smooth, clear skin every morning. The stay-put pocket flap also ensures that these satin pillowcases will stay in place as you rest, ensuring you get the full benefits of sleeping on satin.

Age no more with these tips

GET YOUR ANTI-AGING FIX: NO RX OR DOC APPT NECESSARY!

For many women, even non-invasive cosmetic procedures are too costly, time consuming, or painful. If this rings true for you, the fountain of youth is not an elusive goal. There are “good old fashioned” solutions to father time and some new ones too.

NUTRITION FIX

Franci Cohen

Franci Cohen

It’s true, you are what you eat. Or to be more exact, you look like what you eat. In a nut shell, this means that when you consume unhealthy foods, you look awful.

Franci Cohen is a New York personal trainer, certified nutritionist, exercise physiologist and creator of SPIDERBANDS®. Here are some of Franci’s suggestions:

· SKIP THE SUGAR – Sugar in your bloodstream forms molecules that damages proteins like collagen and elastin. When you say goodbye to collagen and elastin, you say hello to wrinkles. Reach for foods that will enhance moisture, like cucumbers and spinach, which both consist of more than 90% water.

· AVOID OVERLY SALTY FOODS – Salt dehydrates and can lead to bloat and puffiness, especially around the eyes. Instead of chips and other salty foods, opt for wholegrain pretzels with sesame seeds or choose olives. Olives are naturally salty and they contain fiber.

· STEER CLEAR OF FRIED ANYTHING – Fried foods clog your arteries and stiffen your blood cells, making your skin look dull. Choose brown rice, which contains ceramides that make skin smooth and supple. And tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that helps protect skin against harmful UV rays.

SKIN FIX

Age and poor food choices are not the only culprit of wrinkles and neither are genetics. There are factors that come into play caused by one’s lifestyle and beauty habits that can exacerbate the aging process.

Dr. Mirwat Sami is a Houston Board-certified Ophthalmologist specializing in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. She explains that, “It is the skin’s elasticity which prevents unwanted lines and furrows from forming, and keeps skin from sagging. Although wrinkles naturally develop with age, there are bad habits you can break to stop being a skin saboteur.” Dr. Sami suggests:

· DON’T SLEEP ON YOUR SIDE OR STOMACH – You might get a good night’s sleep on your sides and tummy but you’re unnecessarily stressing your skin. Fetal and tummy positions when sleeping cause uneven blood circulation which locks up nourishment, blood, and oxygen on some parts of your body while depriving other body parts, including skin and causing it to become wrinkled. Dr. Sami says that, “Not only do these sleeping positions cause wrinkles, poor blood circulation causes fluids to be stuck around your eyes. This contributes to the formation of eye bags and dark under eye circles that make you look tired and older. Additionally, sleeping on the face or on one side can result in worsening of age-related descent of our features.”

· ALWAYS REMOVE MAKEUP AT NIGHT – When you sleep in your makeup, you’re basically asking for wrinkles. The makeup and environmental pollutants you accumulate during the day seep into your pores, breaking down collagen and elastin. This can speed up the aging process and leave you with fine lines and wrinkles

· TRY TO LIMIT CENTRAL HEATING -The central heating and air conditioning systems that many of us use at home and at work can severely dry out skin, leading to premature aging and wrinkles. To help keep skin youthful and soft, try turning down the heat. Keeping a glass of water in the room can also increase humidity, while wearing a protective face cream can help relieve dryness.

INSTANT FIX

Making better food choices and breaking bad lifestyle habits take time and practice. For those people who like instant gratification, there is WorryLess.

Worryless is indeed the stuff of movie magic. Developed by Hollywood makeup and special effects artists, it uses medical grade silicone to simulate skin—filling and concealing frown lines between your eyebrows instantly! WorryLess is the first and only topical dermal filler created to virtually erase glabella lines (the deep vertical lines between your eyebrows).

Upon application, the silicone transforms from a liquid to a flexible rubber-like consistency, which simulates skin. It seamlessly fills in the deep crevices and because it is translucent, allows your skin to shine through. The result? Perfectly, smooth realistic looking skin.

WorryLess is:
· Waterproof (lasts approx. 36 hours)
· Non-irritating
· Non-invasive
· Clinically and dermatologist tested
· Allergy tested
· Pain-free
· Instant Results

How to Apply in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1: Prime. Brush on Primer over the areas you wish to conceal. Let it dry for 30 seconds.
Step 2: Apply. Apply a small amount to the skin using the pointed precision application tool. With a spatula tool or a finger, blend the edges into the skin.
Step 3: Texture. Place Skin Texture Pad over the area. Press around the edges. Hold in place for about a minute.
Retail Price: $50.00

Decoding your skincare routine

Posted on: April 2nd, 2015

IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE TURNING INTO ALPHABET SOUP?

DERMATOLOGIST DR. REBECCA BAXT DECODES BB, CC, AND DD BEAUTY CREAMS www.cosmedical.com

Baxt CosMEDICAL logo

Baxt CosMEDICAL logo

Feel like you’ve been hearing a series of letters rather than actual descriptors attached to the newest skincare products? You’re not crazy: You’ve just been caught up in the swarm of “alphabet creams.” BB, CC, and now DD creams first gained popularity in Korea, and have made similar waves stateside. But what do all those letters stand for, and what do these creams actually do? Dr. Rebecca Baxt is a board certified NYC dermatologist. She states that, “BB, CC, or any alphabet soup creams can be excellent all in one products for some women, but for many companies, the labels are just marketing. Check the active ingredients. Does it have a sunscreen? What is the SPF? Is it at least a 20 or 30 SPF? If your BB, CC, or any other over the counter cream is not working for you, seek help with a great Board Certified Dermatologist to solve your skin issues. They may be more complicated than just the ABC’s! “

Board Certified NYC area dermatologist Dr. Rebecca Baxt decodes it all.

How BB Creams Began

BB creams are short for beauty balms or blemish balms. They were first developed in Germany by a dermatologist who wanted a single cream that would protect skin and provide coverage after laser treatments. The all-in-one formulation became a sensation in South Korea and then spread throughout Asia. “The average woman in Asia goes through seven different steps taking care of her skin,” says Dr. Baxt.

The BB Boom

BB creams started hitting U.S. store shelves in the spring of 2011. Today, almost every major beauty company has a BB cream, from drugstore brands that cost under $10 to high-end department-store lines that may be as costly as $100 or more, as well as lines that are only sold at spas or in doctors’ offices. More are on their way. The NPD Group, a market research group, found that although only 2% of beauty shoppers have purchased a BB cream, nearly 4 in 5 of those who have, say they’ll buy the product again.

What BB Creams Do

Many BB creams offer effective sun protection, with broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher, the American Academy of Dermatology’s recommendation for daily use. What’s more, BB creams generally contain zinc oxide or titanium oxide, physical sun blocks that have some built-in water-resistant properties, Baxt says.

When it comes to skin treatment, you can find BB creams that contain:

•Anti-aging components, including peptides and antioxidants such as vitamins A, E, and C

•Moisturizing workhorses like hyaluronic acid and glycerin

•Ingredients such as licorice and arbutin that help even out skin tone

•Light-reflecting mica to give skin a luminous finish

•Silicone-based ingredients, such as dimethicone, that help smooth the skin, acting much like a foundation primer does

The Limitations of BB Creams

For all its benefits, if you expect a BB cream to be a miracle in a tube, you might be disappointed.

CC Creams

What is it? Packed to the gills with vitamins C and E, complexion corrector cream is similar to BB cream, but focuses on color correction.

What it does: Lighter than a BB cream, CC cream’s primary purpose is to correct color-related skin issues, such as sallowness or redness. Like BB cream, it has SPF as well (number varies by brand).

How to use it: If you’re acne-prone, have dull skin, dark spots or constant redness, CC cream is for you.

How it differs: Use CC cream to help with redness, acne, dark spots, sallowness and more. It’s also lighter than BB cream!

DD Creams: What are they? Fresh to the alphabet cream craze, DD creams, or “dynamic do-all” are a super cream: They combine the power and benefits of both BB and CC creams. However, their primary focus is anti-aging.

What it does: The anti-aging specialty of the cream works to diminish wrinkles and fine lines throughout use. Additionally, DD cream will balance skin tone and protect the most sensitive areas of your skin.

How to use it: Supposedly, you’ll really see improvements in your skin with continued use, so use often and incorporate it into your daily routine!

How it differs: DD cream’s strongest selling point is their anti-aging benefits. If you’re looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, this cream is the cream for you.

At the end of the day, each category overlaps to the point where the differentiation is almost non-existent. The upside is they are all great products that can be very beneficial for the skin. The downside is sorting through the many varieties to determine which would work better for you. (This just in: We now have a “GG” cream)

Where do you start? If discoloration is your primary concern then start with CC creams, because that’s their claim to fame so you will more than likely find a product that contains skin-brightening ingredients such as arbutin or daisy flower extract. If fine lines and wrinkles are the issue, then look for an alphabet cream full of ingredients like retinol, firming peptides or adenosine. If your skin is oily, then look for an alphabet cream that controls oil and has a lightweight texture.

There is an alphabet cream out there for you—let’s just hope that brands don’t try to exhaust the entire alphabet!

April is Autism Awarness month

Posted on: April 1st, 2015

CHAMILIA BY SWAROVSKI GROUP SUPPORTS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH (APRIL) 2015

CRANSTON, RI (April 1, 2015)—During April 2015, in honor of Autism Awareness Month, Chamilia (www.chamilia.com), a Swarovski Group brand, announced that it will donate five percent of proceeds from its “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm to the Autism Research Institute, the primary organization supporting efforts to understand and treat this condition (established in 1967 by Dr. Bernard Rimland). The brand became interested in supporting these efforts after learning that in 2012 the Centers for Disease Control announced that autism affects one in 68 people under the age of 21 living in the U.S. This number is an increase from the previously estimated five in 10,000 children reportedly affected by the condition before 1990.

And as a personalized jewelry brand, each piece that we produce is a statement in support of the women who wear it. And we believe it’s important for women who deal with this condition to be supported in some way.”

There are more than 400 exclusive charms available from the Chamilia brand. The line is made from sterling silver or 14 karat gold and features genuine Swarovski Crystals, Swarovski Zirconia, or glass that is handmade in the USA using the finest ingredients. The brand follows strict Swarovski guidelines for quality and aesthetic standards. The “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm from Chamilia is a sterling silver representation of a piece from a puzzle and retails for $35. The charm symbolizes the need to develop a greater understanding of the condition of autism and its impact on society.
