It's A GOLD RUSH!

Gold isn't just for jewelry anymore. This holiday season be bold and wear Gold! Shoes, clothes, accessories, make-up and nail color - your choices are as exciting as they are endless! Look dramatic in this season's latest Gold rush - strappy sandals (yes sandals in the winter!) and carry a spectacular clutch purse. Or just plain dazzle them by wearing an eye-catching gold sequined skirt or top.

First set the stage by drawing an alluring shimmer to your skin with Bloom Aromatherapy Shimmer Gold Body Gel
and then light up your eyes with Z New York Shadow Shifters I & II Start with the eye shadow color that works best for you and add the Shadow Shifters, Be sure that you don't use the same tone for eyes and lips, keep one a bit darker than the other so you don't wash out your face with too much of a good thing!

If you are concerned about your eyes revealing your age, stay away from glitter and shimmering eye shadow and try Murad Murasome Eye Complex - to improve skin texture around eye area with lipid moisturizers, humectants and antioxidants.

SKIN SAVERS

During the winter season, our skin takes a beating. Cold weather outside, dry heat inside, you can't keep up! Don't forget to take extra care to keep moisturized and protected. The single most important step in your skin care regime is sun protection. UVA rays are the major cause of skin cancer, premature aging, sagging skin and hyper pigmentation. If using a skin whitener, age spot fading lotion, etc. you must use a high SPF or you will not achieve the desired effect. Try Fran Wilson - L de L Retinol Vitamin A Cream Exxtra Strength - With SPF 20 - offers the most protection against sunburn and the harmful effects of UVA and UVB damage, while treating the skin with 400,000 i.u.'s of Vitamin A - a moisturizing formula that helps lessen the visable signs of aging.

To already reduce the appearance of sun and age spots on the face, neck, shoulders and hands Cellex-C Fade Away Gel incorporates two patented formulations that collectively encourage a visible lightening effect on problem areas. Regular use of Fade Away Gel promotes a clear, more even toned complexion in as little as 6 to 8 weeks.


BEAUTIFUL SKIN: TAKE 3

1. Exfoliate with Donna Fujii Exfoliant Scrub - polishes away old, dead skin cells and reveals the fresh new cells underneath. Stimulates circulation to skin cells and removes unwanted oils. Uses gentle micro-beads to massage away unwanted tissue and debris without damaging the delicate capilaries just beneath the skin's surface. Contains skin conditioner to instantly soothe newly revealed skin cells.

2. Cleanse with Hemp Works Oatmeal Mint Cleansing Bar With Hemp Seed Oil - Normal to Oily Skin - Cleanses skin while gently exfoliates dead skin cells.

3. Moisturize with Neostrata Ultra Moist Face Cream - This exclusive 10% gluconolactone poly hydroxyacid, has been formulated as a richly moisturizing emollient, and is suggested for use on the face and neck. This cream is gentle enough for patients with sensitive skin. Contains Vitamin E (antioxidant), Vitamin B Complex Factor and natural antioxidants.


STEPPING OUT

The return of stilettos do visual wonders for your legs by lengthening them with high skinny heels on boots, pumps and strappy evening sandals, but they can be killers on your feet. Be kind to your feet and don't wear them to work and then straight out for a night on the town, or you'll be down for the count. To keep your feet soft and callous free try Hemp Works Exfoliating Foot Scrub With Hemp Seed Extract - sloughs away dry skin cells, smoothes calluses, softens and refreshes tired feet. A lotion that contains fine granules to help smooth and soften rough skin on heels, toes and soles.


STRESS BUSTER

To relieve the stress during the holiday season and for total relaxation anytime pamper yourself or a loved one with Hey Slick's hot new massage oils. Made of unique all natural, lightweight essential oils they help to reduce stress, relax tired and sore muscles, and reduces the stress and strain of tense muscles and joints.


AND TO ALL A GOOD NITE

The most effective beauty routine begins and ends with a good nights sleep. Use Essence Of Vali Aromatherapy Formula - Sleep in a before bedtime bath or massage for a peaceful night's sleep. Essences of lavender flowers, cedar wood, marjoram leaves and ylang/ylang petals known for their calming and soothing properties will help you get a good night's rest and prevent those winter blues!
