~ CooLifting – the 5-minute cryo facial that is sweeping the red carpets of North America ~

With the awareness for healthy living and wellness at an all-time high taking preventative care of your skin in the summer months is routine for the savvy skincare user. Skincare pioneer Lisa Stewart is always on the lookout for the latest technology that produces revolutionary results for her exclusive clientele. This summer she is ecstatic to introduce CooLifting – the 5-minute cryo facial that is sweeping the red carpets of North America.
The CooLifting facial is an all-natural and painless way to reduce wrinkles and provide instant hydration. The system combines “carboxy therapy” or carbon dioxide and a line of proprietary serums developed to tackle a variety of skin issues.
CooLifting is a non-invasive facial rejuvenation technique, which creates a strong CO2 gas flow and a proprietary hyaluronate facial solution—made up of a high concentration of atomized actives—to be applied all over the face. Application is made at a low temperature with very high pressure. Specific areas treated are the forehead, cheeks, brows, lips area and eyes outline. The immediate lifting creates a lasting effect in which winkles are reduced and skin is smoothed and brightened.
During the treatment the carboxy spray and serum is directed at the treatment zone for 4 minutes. The combination of gas and serum is dispensed with continuous movement, concentrating on specific areas of the face based on each client’s needs. The client will experience a spray of gas/serum along with a cooling sensation. The intensity and sound will diminish as the treatment progresses.
“The beauty is there are no side effects or down time says Lisa Stewart.” An ordinary routine may be resumed following a CooLifting treatment.
Clients should see an increase in hydration and luminosity and a smoothing of fine lines for 24-72 hours after one treatment. Longer lasting improvements are related to the number of sessions. Over time, fine lines will diminish, and the skin will become firmer.
The CooLifting facial has also become a favorite after derma planning, chemical peels, micro needling or laser treatments to help calm irritated skin. This translates into increased oxygenation and deeper delivery of a range of serums to improve the overall appearance of the skin.
CooLifting delivers superior skin hydration, increased luminosity, and improvement in fine lines, skin tone, and firmness. The combination of carbon dioxide and specially formulated serums enhances microcirculation and lifting and tightening of the skin. Lisa is thrilled and excited to share this noninvasive fountain of youth!

~ seven favorite healthy foods to help fight dehydration. ~

Summer is finally here and the days of laying by the pool, beautiful hikes and beach fun are upon us. Unfortunately, the combination of the Summer heat and outdoor activities can lead to excess sweating. This helps keep the body cool down, but it can also lead to dehydration so instead of endless glasses of water opt for some healthy fruits and veggies. Incorporating these into your diet can add to your water intake and keep you hydrated all through the summer.

Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., an Osteopathic Physician board certified in family medicine, anti-aging medicine and chelation therapy has created a tip sheet of his seven favorite healthy foods to help fight dehydration.

  1. Watermelon
  • Watermelons contain around 92% water and one of the most hydrating foods out there. They can be a great alternative to snacks like pretzels, chips and peanuts. These popular snacks have large amounts of sodium and can make you more dehydrated.

 

  1. Cucumber
  • Cucumbers are about 96% water and they contain no saturated fat or cholesterol. They are high in Vitamin B6 helping to produce serotonin, which is the brain chemical that controls mood. I suggest making small cucumber-watermelon bites, which are both incredibly hydrating and delicious.
  1. Strawberry
  • Strawberries have the highest water content of any berry, 92% to be exact. This berry is a great source of vitamins C and K. You can enjoy the tart-sweet flavor without consuming too much sugar.

 

  1. Cantaloupe
  • This popular melon is 90% water and packed with rich flavor. One cup of cantaloupe provides 100% of the daily recommended values of Vitamins A and C.

 

  1. Tomato
  • Tomatoes are made up of about 95% water. Along with their sweetness they are perfect to take the place of higher calorie condiments. One medium size tomato contains only 22 calories.

 

  1. Zucchini
  • Zucchinis are 95% water and help to give you more energy. They also contain a good amount of potassium helping to reduce blood pressure. The veggie also promotes skin health giving a glow and restoring moisture.

 

  1. Lemon
  • While I don’t think a lot of people enjoy eating lemons, adding them to water is a great way to change up a plain glass of water. Besides enhancing the flavor, lemons are a great source of vitamin C and aids in digestion.

~ LAWLESS launches its first product in the complexion category with Woke Up Like This Flawless Finish Foundation ~

Expanding its range of high-performance clean beauty products, LAWLESS launches its first product in the complexion category with Woke Up Like This Flawless Finish Foundation. The 20-shade range spans from fair to deep with several categories of undertones. The noncomedogenic formula is SPF- and silicone-free, and includes lightweight skin-balancing oils and shea butter to create a radiant satin finish for full-coverage, long wear results.

Woke-Up-Like-This-Collection

Our skin is the body’s largest organ and we absorb up to 60% of product ingredients we place on it. With this in mind, LAWLESS founder, Annie Lawless, created a non-toxic formula that gives full-coverage results and includes skin benefitting ingredients to enhance your skin every time it’s worn.

Completely silicone-free, this formula won’t clog pores and still provides a beautiful skin-smoothing effect due to a blend of nourishing ingredients. Skin-enhancing oils, including abyssinica, camellia, kukui, grape seed, and jojoba oils, help plump and replenish the skin’s moisture barrier for a supple, youthful appearance. Soothing, anti-inflammatory shea butter helps soften and repair skin, while promoting collagen production and protecting against free radicals.

“When it comes to ‘natural’ foundations, most currently on the market deliver sheer coverage or use pore-clogging oils like coconut oil. I created a toxin-free formula that delivers a radiant, full-coverage finish that is noncomodegenic, silicone- and SPF-free. Now you can not only feel good about the ingredients going on your skin, but feel confident and beautiful with the level of coverage and staying power,” said LAWLESS Founder, Annie Lawless.

Each Woke Up Like This foundation shade retails for $46 at LawlessBeauty.com and on Sephora.com on June 5th.

DirtyBird Energy soaps can do just that! Whether you want ENERGY, need to RELAX after a long hard day, REPLENISH your skin with key moisturizers,  or need to RECOVER from a hard workout, a long hike or day at the beach playing volleyball or with your kids…DirtyBird has you covered!

DirtyBird Energy is dedicated to creating products to help productivity for active, busy lifestyles.  Whether it is getting up and out of the house, at school, at the office, during a workout, or raising children, they want to help everyone be at their best and most productive!

Each DirtyBird Energy Bar is infused with ingredients to help achieve this goal.

The ENERGY Soap bars are infused with caffeine and peppermint oil to energize the body and mind.  Scientific studies show caffeine absorbs through pores and hair follicles, which will energize the body even before your first cup of coffee in the morning.  Caffeine has also been used for years in spas on the skin as an anti-oxidant to reduce the look of aging and cellulite.

Not a fan of the caffeine…don’t worry…they also have the all-natural RELAX Soap as well…

The RELAX Soap bars are infused with lavender, chamomile, rosemary, and ylang ylang essential oils.  Each of these oils absorbs to relax the body and mind as well as soothe the skin.  An evening shower with Relax helps to promote a restful sleep allowing you to wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

The  RECOVER Soap is specially formulated bar helps to take on some of the recovery for you, gently exfoliating away dirt, grime and dry skin to allow optimal absorption of its ingredients. Infused with Arnica, Eucalyptus and Rosemary extracts, this trifecta of body treatments aims to encourage faster healing of bumps, bruises and inflammation so that you can rest up and ready yourself for your next day at school, big game or whatever life has to throw at you (or vice versa). This one does contain caffeine as well.

The NEW REPLENISH Bar is a great way to moisturize your skin with 30% natural moisturizers made with natural cocoa and shea butters and creams, (and NO petroleum!). That is more moisturizer per bar than any of the leading moisturizing bars out there! And just like the rest of the DirtyBird Energy soaps, REPLENISH is made with all-natural ingredients.

The REPLENISH bar is designed to drench your skin in softness and with no fragrance, no caffeine and no scrubbing beads, it is perfect for a daily facial soap…but we think it’s great for your whole body!

And the soap isn’t the only thing that’s special! DirtyBird Energy soap comes packaged in their patented reusable container, that snaps shut and allows you to take your soap anywhere; the gym, camping, vacation, anywhere…or use it to keep other goodies in.

And DirtyBird Energy is proudly made in the U.S.A….another plus!

DirtyBird Energy Soaps are available in singles, a 2-pack variety, 6 packs or in a customizable monthly membership, delivered right to your door ever month!
