When you think makeover, a day (or more!) of fussing and primping and pampering probably come to mind. Unless your budget is big and your schedule is open, this type of beauty re-do isn’t very realistic. The truth is, with some simple techniques and quality products, like those from MyChelle, you can easily boost your look and feel great—in less than 10 minutes. Here’s how:
You can’t see the counter in your bathroom. Or maybe you can’t control yourself around free samples. And you’re always coming up with new uses for common beauty tools. If one (or more) of these describes you, you could be a beauty addict.
Q: Winter is wreaking havoc on my skin—please help!
Licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy of MyChelle Dermaceuticals responds:
Whether you’re battling freezing temps, harsh winds or worse, winter is cruel to skin. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity outdoors, plus artificial heat filling our indoor spaces, can have drying and dehydrating effects. Pores become clogged with debris and skin can suffer from a buildup of dead cells, leaving it looking dull, tired and run down.
According to Murphy’s Law, “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” Sure, you can gamble against it, but why bother? This old adage inspired me to create a special kit before my sister’s wedding; it was packed with solutions for every possible mishap. Ripped seam? Sewing kit and hem tape. Sudden spill? Stain-removal pen. Spinach in teeth? Toothpicks and floss. Take that, Murphy!
The crystal ball has dropped, the champagne has flowed and the New Year has officially begun. You survived the holidays, but the wear and tear may have taken a toll on you—in physical, mental and emotional ways. Heck, you may almost feel like you have a holiday hangover. That’s why so many people find the New Year the perfect time to make resolutions, set goals, try new things and make life improvements.
Everything about winter is fierce, from the frigid, whipping wind to the frenzied holiday shoppers shoving their way through crowds in search of the perfect gift. Not surprising that the look of the season follows suit—with bold colors blasting away the boring browns and burnt umbers of autumn and striking, shimmery accents signaling true style in the sea of black coats and boots.
It’s 6:30 p.m. You just finished a grueling workout after an eight-hour day at the office. Sweat beads are stuck to your forehead, mascara’s streaming down your cheeks, and that foundation you put on this morning? It’s like it was never there. None of this would be a problem if you could hop in the gym shower for a quick cleanup. But that dinner reservation is at 7:00, and you’ve got to get moving—fast. Great news! There’s a wipe for that.
