Put Together a Complete Look in 15 Minutes!
Summer is in full swing with endless parties, barbecues and get-togethers — which is just as it should be! What is summer after all, if not a time for entertaining and to be entertained, right? Social animal that I am, I love filling my evenings and weekends with fun social events. The only problem is that sometimes I get so caught up in the planning and prepping for said events that I often end up with very little time to take care of the most important component: looking fabulous! Often, I have less than 15 or 20 minutes to pull together a great look for a fun summer social event, and with my mind focused on making the event a success it helps to have a few head-to-toe looks in mind in advance. This is where our friend, celebrity stylist Jason Bolden comes to the rescue!
Jason is an incredible fashion expert that styles Gabrielle Union, La La Anthony, Rachel Roy, Kelly Rowland and many others. Known for revolutionizing a woman’s wardrobe, Jason took La La Anthony from MTV VJ to one of Vogue’s Best Dressed. Jason shares with us thee looks that you can put together in 15 minutes!
Look 1: Jumper
You have 15 minutes and you have to be at your best friend's engagement party, but you just accidentally got makeup on your dress! This is how you save your look and time!Pull out that simple but sexy jumper. Grab one piece of statement jewelry and pair it with the highest sandal in your closet. Add a clutch that helps the piece of statement jewelry sparkle. With a relaxed ponytail and a super red lip you're on your way and out the door!
Look 2: Last Year's Wedding Dress
You've worked all day and now that special person in your life has invited some people over for dinner! It's your job to cook, clean and make a great impression on your friends. First, relax and think of that one thing that makes you feel HOT! Yes it's that great dress you wore last summer to someone's wedding! Now this is how you’re going to spice it up: Take the dress, grab a fun pop color belt and wrap it around your waist. Put on some really great sandals (flats) and give yourself some great beach hair. Add loads of bangles, a nude lip and all your issues are solved! It's the perfect way to feel sexy and be at ease in your own home!
Look 3: Flirty Top w/ Pencil Skirt
You just put the kids to bed before the babysitter arrives and your dinner guests are approaching! You want a stunning look in 15 minutes? This is what you do! Tonight the focus is on your eyes and legs! Try your best to use a navy blue almost black liner (don't be scared!) this is going to make you look and feel like a million bucks! Watch as your friends take notice (this is a red carpet secret!) Go find that great top and pencil skirt that lands just above the knee and that fabulous pair of shoes that are only good for walking to and from your car — and sitting — and you're done! A complete chic sexy and smart show stopper in 15 minutes or less!
Well my dears, that's it in a nutshell! 15 minutes to gorgeous for any occasion — thanks Jason Bolden!

Board Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Rebecca Baxt Launches the
BAXT Cosmedical Acne Kit Level I & II
Acne is one of the most common dermatologic conditions, affecting millions of individuals in the United States. It’s a common skin condition that affects most people, to a varying degree, during their teen years. However, acne is by no means restricted to teenagers — adults in their 20's and 30's and 40’s are also susceptible to acne. Many effective forms of therapy and medications have been developed to help in the process of eliminating and preventing acne. If a patient suffers from acne, they no longer have to settle with the appearance of their skin because quality topical treatment is available.
“Acne isn’t something one can outgrow with age,” says Dr. Rebecca Baxt, New Jersey/New York board certified dermatologist and assistant professor of clinical dermatology at the New York University School of Medicine. “Years of untreated acne can leave a lifelong imprint on a person's face and can have an effect on self-image. While acne may not be curable, it is usually controllable and preventable.”

INTRODUCING: TFI Sundust – Your 2-in-1 Protector & Perfector
Even if you’re stuck at work versus lounging poolside, don’t skimp on your sunscreen. Believe it or not, you’re still at risk of sun damage at your desk. UVA rays can easily penetrate office windows, plus fluorescent lights emit UBV rays that can cause hyperpigmentation down the road.
If you think your obligatory SPF layer applied each morning has you covered – think again. Sunscreen is actually only effective for about two hours after application! Frequent touch-ups may be doable when you’re going bare-faced at the beach, but idea of layering lotion over foundation, blush and bronzer is completely off-putting. Hello smears, streaks, oil and blemishes
Luckily, the brand new TFI Sundust, created by renowned plastic surgeon Julius Few, MD, solves this dicey dilemma. The brush-on minera lsunscreen blends flawlessly into skin and glides effortlessly over makeup to perfect skin while providing SPF protection. Not only will it keep your skin safe all day, but it also acts as a mattifier if midday shine starts to set in. The handy brush dispenser has a pump to prevent clogging and fits easily into your purse for mess-free touch-ups throughout the day.
TFI Sundust comes in SPF 26 and 30 and is available in a wide range of shades that help to subtly even and brighten complexions. Shades include Agate, Golden Sand, Latte and Cafe. The weightless mineral powder is good for all skin types and even has natural healing powers to soothe sensitive skin. Goat hair bristles allow for super soft application.
The product will retail for $50 on drfewbeauty.com

This lightweight formula of sulfate-free surfactants will provide sleek summer styles without fear of heat related hair havoc.
