THE ONLY BEAUTY PRODUCTS YOU NEED THIS SUMMER ARE

When it comes to summer skin (and pool party attire!), less is certainly more. Instead of covering it all up, aim for a natural glow. Enhance your best features and subtly disguise your problem areas. To do this, all you need are a few essentials. Invest in a summer perfume, a new lip gloss and fun convo-starting sparking earring. You can put away (for now) your heavy eye shadows, crimson nail polishes and your contouring creams in favor of a light translucent powder, a skin perfecting anti-aging mist (that can…

THIS INGREDIENT IS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Dry skin is my least favorite thing. It makes your makeup caky and weird. The skin flakes off and the texture just isn’t as smooth. It can also lead to premature aging in the form of lines, wrinkles and lack of plumpness. One of the best things you can do for your skin is to keep it constantly hydrated. It’s logical, the more water you give your skin, the plumper it is. Think of your skin like a grape. What happens when that grape doesn’t receive water anymore? It shrivels up and turns into…

THE SECRET TO A GOOD ANTI-AGING FACE CREAM? YOUR OWN BLOOD CELLS

In January, I set aside time to meet with Dr. Barbara Sturm, the genius behind the culty eponymous anti-aging line. Since moving to Switzerland, I’ve been on a mission to get to know my new beauty neighbors. It was actually my third trip to visit a woman pioneering the beauty space in the area. My first trip was to interview Susanne Kaufmann at her detox clinic in Austria. The second was to meet with Sophie Guillon, of Valmont. And last week I hopped on a 45-minute flight headed from Zurich to…

THIS SKINCARE LINE HAS NEVER FAILED ME (EVER)

Magic happens when you find a skincare line you love. That’s what happened to me with Tata Harper. I first discovered her products about four years ago and became hooked on the serums and moisturizers. The brand was still somewhat under the radar at the time, but since then, the line has expanded to include cream blushes, body balms and hand creams. And, by the way, they’re all amazing. Why do I love Tata Harper so much? Well for starters, I have met Tata many times now, and am even lucky to…

MY 5 FAVORITE CLEAN (PRE-PARTY) AT HOME PEELS

One of my personal favorite reasons to love the fall season – besides for the cozy vibes, chunky sweaters and pumpkin favored everything – is that I can dedicate time to my skin. For most of the fall, I am covered up and can finally allow myself to get burned, peeled and lasered all over my face and body in hopes that I erase that damage that is summer. While I love nothing more than a lengthy and aggressive trip to Dangene, my social calendar sometimes gets in the way and…

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OILS FOR YOUR SKIN AND HAIR

Let’s face it, women love oils. With their alluring packaging and heavy glass bottles, they can instantly transform even the smallest or dingiest of bathrooms. The come in an array of colors, shapes and sizes and their functions vary. The only problem is, the market has become so saturated with them, it’s hard to know which ones really work and which don’t. I myself am oil obsessed. I love nothing more than to take a bath with a splash of oil (this one in fact) and then slather oil all over my body before bed….
