End of Summer Style
& Beauty Tips

With Labor Day and the last long weekend of summer upon on us — travel is on our mind.  Kashia Orlando, the Creative Director and Buyer of Fontainebleau Resorts LLC, has tips on what to pack for Labor day and how to pack to make sure you have everything you need and nothing more. 

Stick to a color scheme

Bring versatile pieces

  • Lay out everything before you pack. 
  • Make sure every piece can be worn with at least twice.  You want pieces that can do double duty.

Embrace the accents

Shop at Zappos.com!

Planning to souvenir-shop?

  • Pack a small nylon duffel bag or stretchy bag to haul your loot back home

Know where you are going

  • Whether you’re going on a beach weekend, city escape or country holiday, the packing list will change drastically
  • Do research, ask questions.  You don’t want to bring huge stilettos and find out that everyone goes out in flip flops

End of Summer Skin RX: Since we’re now on the tail end of summer (sadly!), now is the time to start thinking about post-summer skin.  All that time you’re spending in the sun may look good now as a tan, but come September the results won’t be as pretty. We all know sun damage is very harmful on the skin, and causes age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and overall skin dullness. Fortunately, there are numerous non-invasive treatments that can reverse sun damage, leaving skin radiant and ready for fall. Dr. Edward Miranda, a Bay Area plastic surgeon, has the following tips for those who need a little extra tlc:

If you didn’t protect your skin this summer, try practicing these tips:

  • Use soothing cucumber & green tea masks once or twice a week, they are packed with antioxidants to repair sun damage & combat free radicals.
  • Incorporate Chemical exfoliants into your skincare routine (out favorite are Ravish by London Riley Glycolic Pads).
  • Even if the damage is done, USE AT LEAST 30SPF every day! Remember to coat the back of your hands, neck & chest as these areas are most often missed!

Treatments for skin damage reversal:

  • It's possible to reduce the appearance of sun damage, but it's never a good idea to expose your unprotected skin to the sun
  • IPL treatments work great for reducing hyperpigmentation on lighter skin types
  • Ravish by London Riley Hydroquinone pads are a good topical treatment for reducing sun spots

Well my darlings, this should get you on the right track for finishing up your summer in style, and looking positive glam as well! Happy end-of-summer all!

Hair Essentials: Repairing Hair
after Summer Damage

Although most people think to put on sunblock or post-tanning products to nourish their skin after days spent out in the sun, we often forget that our hair needs some tender love and care as well. Spending days out in the sun causes hair damage and dryness that lead to split-ends and dull-looking hair.

With beach season coming to an end, you need to think about revitalizing your hair after subjecting it to sun damage during the summer months. Check out SHE by SO.CAP.USA’s Argan For You line,  a full hair care line that helps provide hair with the nutrients and moisture it needs to combat the effects of the sun.

Inspired by nature, Argan For You is formulated and enriched with oil of Argan, a natural ingredient extracted from Argon berries, to produce healthy hair and visibly improve damage from the sun, styling and coloring treatments. Each product has its own hair healing properties like adding and locking in moisture, repairing split ends and encouraging hair growth. The brand’s weightless Light Oil or Light Oil Spray is an absolute must to repair damaged hair, and keep it  smooth and free of frizz, and the Leave-In Curling Cream is perfect giving definition and bounce to unruly curls. The Shampoo and  the Conditioning Mask are great products to add to your daily regimen to maintain healthy hair all year long.
