Let the Bridal Beauty Bootcamp Begin!
Published on May 19, 2012
Get an inside look at our Bridal Beauty Bootcamp winner, Linda Packard’s, YOLO experience! Read on to learn more about what services she is selecting… The plans are set…Nikki got back to me with the details of what she has planned for my beauty boot camp. Based on the results of my facial assessment (see scary pictures of my skin!) she plans to start with a Botox treatment to address the wrinkles on my forehead. I must admit I was a bit skeptical about Botox (all the horror stories we hear/see), but Nikki assured me I won’t be one of them. She wants to smooth out the skin before the […]
How New Light Based Technologies Can Minimize the Signs of Long-Term Sun Damage
Published on May 4, 2012
Not all lights are created equal. Some are visible to the human eye as colors. Others, though not perceivable, produce long-lasting biological effects. For example, ultra-violet (UV) light (10-400 nm), which comes to us in the flavors of UVA, UV B, and UVC (though little of the latter reaches the earth), is well known to alter our skin cells at the genetic level, causing DNA damage. The result: aged, weathered skin; precancerous skin lesions known as actinic keratoses (AKs), and in the worst-case scenario, skin cancer. Yet there are other types of light that can help fight these problems. An emerging field of light-based technologies, known by names such as […]

Are you suffering from dry Winter Lips? Q: My lips get very dry. They peel and crack and the skin around my mouth gets chapped and sore during the winter. What can I do to stop this? I have tried several brands of chapstick without getting relief. A: Just like the rest of your skin, your lips suffer during weather changes too. It is important to protect them from the sun and keep them well moisturized. Protect your lips from sun exposure all year long, not just in the summer. Remember that UVA rays are present 365 days per year. We have a few recommendations for you: Use a medical […]
My First Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy Experience!
Published on December 30, 2011
When I scheduled for the Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy at in , Connecticut I admit, I was skeptical. The idea of having someone’s feet massaging me for an hour intimidated me. I did not know anything about the massage therapist so I didn’t want to offend anyone, it’s just that I had never had this service before and I had no idea what to expect! Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is the American adaptation of a treatment originally from the Philippines and then from India. The American treatment was founded by Ruthie Piper Hardee who was born with both scoliosis and mild spondylitus. Combined with the constant leaning over to give […]
Happy Feet…Even in the Winter!
Published on December 15, 2011
Arriving for my Footlogix Pediceutical treatment I was pretty sceptical. I did not believe that even in the Winter, when all of our feet are dry and damaged from the cold, my feet would feel soft and wonderful again. Usually I hide my feet all Winter long in the comfort of my socks and boots and don’t even think about getting a pedicure…but now I am a changed woman! “Where Medi meets the Pedi!” Jess explained. She swears by this pedicure (and so does everyone else once they try it themselves). First she helped me pick out a fabulous color, “Diva of Geneva” by OPI and then we began to […]

No Chipping, No Peeling, No Problem!
Published on November 30, 2011
No matter what, I love getting my nails done for me. Receiving any manicure from is better than doing it at home myself. They have way more bottles of nail polish than I do and they actually get it on your nails as opposed to the side of my finger when I try it on my own. But when I heard they were going to give me a “GelColor by OPI” manicure that can last up to two weeks, I scheduled my service right away! With the holidays here, I have little time to get my nails done but I have lots of parties and events to attend so of […]
