HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2013 is here....
The weather outside is nasty. The holiday parties and dinners that once filled the pages of your agenda have been replaced with deadlines and seemingly unending projects. It must be January! If you’ve got the January blues, consider these mood-enhancing beauty products to help perk up your face and mood on even the greyest of winter days.
This crazy chemical is beginning to pop up all over the makeup world and is said to stimulate the production of dopamine and endorphins promoting happiness, energy, and even sex appeal! The ingredient was created by Laboratoires Sérobiologiques, and is now widely used by drugstore favorite Physician's Formula. Many dermatologists, though, are skeptical about the chemical concentrate, explaining the product would have to include at least 1% Euphoryl to work. Regardless, a pan of Happy Booster Blush or a tube of Happy Booster lipstick won’t set you back more than a few bucks and the pink hearts design is cute enough.
If the dull weather has left your face in need of a pick-me-up, try incorporating a caffeinated product into your routine. For an all-around perky appearance try a caffeinated lotion like Jergens Skin Firming Advanced Moisturizer. It's believed that caffeinated creams may also diminish the appearance of cellulite and fine lines when used over time. A skin latte’ from the fountain of youth! HELLO!??
For the naturalists out there that need a beauty cure for the winter blues, essential oils are coming to the rescue. It’s been known that uplifting scents such as peppermint, grapefruit, and lemon can inspire us to think happy thoughts, even on a dreary day. Try creating your own blend of cheery scents at your local health shop, or try a pre-blended product. The new Cowshed collection of roll-on oil blends are personalized for all your daily mood swings. We are loving Grumpy Cow, Lazy Cow, and Wild Cow to get us through till February. Pop one in your purse and roll over pulse points when things get tough.
It’s said the the right color can turn a frown upside down so what are you doing in that black winter wardrobe? Swap out winter neutrals for neon shades of yellow, red, orange, and fuchsia this season for an instant jolt of energy. Our tips and toes look giddy when glossed over with hot shades like the UV red Radiate by OCC, or bright yellow Cheeky Chops by Butter London. Swipe a best-selling bright such as MAC's Moxie Lipstick across your lips and let the smiling begin.
BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, SPRING WILL BE HERE AND YOUR WINTER BLUES WILL BE FORGOTTEN. Take good care of yourself - you ONLY live once - so make it pretty!
