Best Products to Beat Cellulite

Like many women, I dread the first day in my bikini. That first day on the beach may be judgment day for my winter self indulgences, months of munching myself into unattractive bulges in the stomach, the hips, love handles, thighs. Some parts of the body seem almost programmed to stock fats and the prospect of fighting them an almost lost battle. Some of us may also suffer from hormonal or genetic predispositions that make firming and refining the waist skin almost impossible.

However you don’t need to panic. The first, and obvious, thing to do if you have put on a few extra pounds is to start exercising and eat lean. You can also get some help with some cellulite fighting lotions and serums. Popular in France where women swear by them, they are efficacious when diet and exercise are also included.

Here are my top cellulite-busting treatments:

Skin Care Rehab: Products to Rejuvenate Your Skin for Spring post image

With the weather finally warming up, it’s a perfect opportunity to do some hard-core skin repair and rejuvenation. Like a snake, we need to shed our old dried-up winter skin that was abused through three months of harsh temperature extremes of freezing outside temperatures and over heated interiors.

Dr. Debra Jaliman, a nationally renowned dermatologist and author of “Skin Rules,” recommends exfoliating at the beginning of spring in order to shed our skin’s winter coat. She recommends pads impregnated with Salicylic Acid or Glycolic Acid or an exfoliator with Hyaluronic Acid to exfoliate the dead layers of our winter skin and bring out the new fresher layers. Hyaluronic Acid revitalizes damaged tissue and increases the skin’s viscosity and elasticity.

Here are some other products to help get your skin into tip top shape this season:

For those of you that love their skin to look awesome, I mean- all-out -stunning like a fresh opened  petal in exquisite morning dew… but instantly.. without delay ( because do we really want to wait for anything in this digital age of tweet and instant posting) I recommend experiencing a Diamond Dust facial at the Vince Smith Hair Experience Salon.

Vince Smith, a hair stylist who has graced many runway shows in his 20+ year career, is a beauty maven unlike any other. You would love hanging out at his salon among his team of experienced stylists in a real family atmosphere of beauty conspirators.

Have you ever seen what a 24 karat gold or diamond dust facial can do to your face? Well at the Vince Smith Hair Experience, it is a possibility .. “I wanted to offer the best facials on the market and after months of testing, I discovered the Mica Beauty Jewels Line that blew me away. It was the only one that delivered great results quickly .”

The Jewels by Mica Beauty line allows your skin to be mended looking fresh, young-looking, restored in just one visit . Something about the power of the rare and expensive minerals of Pearl, Gold, and Diamond has been proven to be really good for the skin.

So I went in to find out for my self. [continue reading…]
