Best of Spring Beauty
Ahh, the sweet scents of spring! There is nothing quite like the fragrance of cherry blossoms wafting on a gentle breeze to put a girl in the mood for spring. I had a little business excursion this morning, to the Presidio area of San Francisco. I haven't been over there in a little while and I almost forgot how absolutely gorgeous it is there! Exquisite views of the bay, the bridges, Alcatraz and the Palace of Fine Arts. Walkways meandering through green grass with blossoming trees and flowers everywhere. There was even a radiantly beautiful young woman having her bridal photos taken in one of the parks there …in her wedding gown and a pair of bright pink wellies! Adorable!
Anyhoo, having spent the morning being surrounded by so much beauty made me realize that it was high time I put together our Best of Beauty newsletter! The girls here at She She Me have been busy and bees searching out the best of the best in beauty products for spring. Check out a few of our favorites:
Anti-Aging Skin Care
Those who are beginning to see signs of aging usually worry about pesky gray hairs sprouting up. Now, as if fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin weren’t enough, some women have to worry about their hair turning orange! Anti-aging washes and creams with a high concentration of acid can strip hair color down, and cause it to fade to a light orange hue.
One way to prevent this is to use products with little or no acid in their ingredients. G.M. Collin is a new, anti-aging, dermo-corrective skin care line. Offering luxurious products resulting in more radiant, healthier, younger-looking skin, G.M. Collin products are created with the latest advanced and innovative anti-aging technologies. All products are scientifically developed on-site in Montreal and clinically proven to recapture a natural radiance with the help of modern technology.
A non-invasive dermo-intervention to visibly reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. Bota-peptide 5 is a light-textured fluid with a natural bouquet of bergamot, black currant, green apple, jasmine, musk, and cedar wood.
Made from plant stem cells, this advanced anti-aging serum harnesses free radicals, brightens the complexion, softens and smoothes the skin’s texture. It visibly improves the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the firmness of the skin.
A Breakthrough Way to Maximize your Manicure
File and Shape the Right Way
A natural nail should be shaped to mirror the shape of your cuticle.
This is the natural shape the nail grows and will keep the structure
of the nail intact. Breaking, cracking or splitting happens when the
nail shape is altered. Always file in one direction; Never saw back
and forth on the nail as this will shred the very delicate keratin
layers of the nail, causing chipping and nail peeling!
Sally Hansen Ahead of the Curve 2 Step Sapphire File: This
double-sided nail file features a two-part smooth and shape system
with medium grit on one side and fine grit one the other. Start with
the medium grit to adjust nail length and shape then follow with the
fine-grit outer curve for a perfectly smooth finish. ($4.49)
Pick your Hue
As the ultimate color authority, Sally Hansen has always been at the
cutting edge of nail innovation. First, Sally Hansen introduced the
first-ever polish to deliver five steps of a professional manicure
with the Complete Salon Manicure collection. Now the nail care leader
is upping the ante with two additional benefits-gel-like shine and
chip-resistance-for the ultimate 7-in-1 formula.
New pastels are dusty (I Lilac You), urban (Gray-T Escape) and not
your standard pink or lavender (Pink a Card) for a more wearable and
less traditional spin. $7.99 each
