The New Year calls for new beginnings and another chance to make good on failed resolutions of the past. And what better way to start fresh than with the ultimate makeover? Here are some products that will help you usher in the New Year with a rockin’ new you.
Brighter, Whiter Smile
First off, nothing makes the New Year brighter than a whiter smile. And if you’re worried about stains from one too many glasses of red wine at all those holiday parties, don’t fret. GO WHITER Speed Whitening System by GO SMiLE is an on-the-go 2-step priming and whitening kit that does the job in half the time. It combines the Pre-Whitening Gel and the Smile Whitening System to lift stains and reveal sparkling, pearly whites. Go ahead, smile about it.
What good is a whiter smile with dull, pallid skin? Revitalize your skin with exfoliating products and antioxidant serums designed to boost cell turnover and shed dead skin cells for fresh, radiant skin. I recommend looking for products that contain alpha hydroxy acids or natural fruit enzymes, antioxidants, and salicylic acid, such as Juice Beauty’s Green Apple Antioxidant Serum and Dermalogica’s Gentle Cream Exfoliant. They both help reveal a brighter, softer, healthier complexion.
Another year doesn’t mean you have to look another year older. With the right anti aging skin products, you can banish fine lines and wrinkles along with the other dreaded visible signs of aging that come with them. And since dry skin really brings out the wrinkles, anti-aging products that intensely hydrate and help maintain skin’s moisture are the ones that are most effective in helping you look younger. Kinerase Cream boosts skin’s ability to bind up to 25% more moisture while improving the visible signs of aging.
Another good find if you’re looking for something to protect your skin against free radicals while smoothing out wrinkles is Caudalie’s Pulpe Vitaminee 1st Wrinkle Fluid, an anti-aging treatment formulated with Caudalie’s famed grape seeds with anti-aging actives that visibly smoothes skin, boosts radiance and provides antioxidant protection.
And finally, nothing rounds off the list like the resolution to lose weight. It’s also the one that seems to make the list every year because it’s the toughest to achieve! If you’re too lazy to exercise (or you’re like me and have good intentions but have even more excuses not to), then you’ll probably benefit from trying SENSA®. Featured on Extra and NBC, it claims to help you lose weight eating whatever you want. Hey, I’m all for easy solutions and shortcuts, so I’m trying this one out this year. I’ve failed in this department in all other years, so what have I got to lose? Here are Sensa reviews from our peeps and here is a NY Times article on Sensa.
