Beauty From Within

How many of these top ten beauty foods do you eat? Try eating them more frequently.

Antioxidant

Do you smoke? Do you work/play in a harsh environment (indoors or out)? If you answer yes to any of these questions, you may want to consider more protection for your skin, Phytoceane Absolute Youth Antioxidant Cream.Use alone or under your current moisturizer.

Beauty Clunkers

Grab a box or bag and go to the bathroom cabinet/drawer that houses all of your beauty "clunkers". Open the door. There may or may not be a lot of product in there. Breathe, it's ok.
Now, fill up the box.
You know you have a cabinet/drawer filled with stuff. We all do.
We've all purchased product that just didn't work like we thought it would. So, whether it is haircare, nailcare or bodycare, we've spent a lot of money on all of those lotions, potions and serums. It's ok. Breathe.
When you've filled up your box, bring it in. I'll tell you what to keep (and how to rework it), what to toss and maybe suggest some products to save up your pennies for. For all of your trouble, I'll give you a gift certificate for one item at 50% off and some samples to try. The stuff we toss, I'll make certain the packaging gets recycled.
Truly, I want to help. No judgements.
It'll be fun. I promise. Plus, you're going to have a cleaner closet.

"La vita e bella". And so is this satin shower cap by Principessa (Italian for princess). Just adorable!

Bamboo vs. Microfiber

Lately, I have been researching hair towels.

Because of the huge trend to go curlyall of you curly girls are looking for products to get your luscious tresses dried in a jiffy. Thus, I receive many requests for microfiber towels.
You inquire, I do the research, we'll see what happens.
If you have never used a microfiber/bamboo towel, they are quite magical. How do they get all of that moisture out of the hair so quickly, anyway?
BTW, you don't have to be a curly girl/boy to use this type of towel. They're for anyone.
But, what IS "microfiber"? Yeah, I'm not so excited about the fact that they are not made from a plant source. But, I'm workin' on it. Because of that, I have been researching bamboo. It is very similar AND "green" (it grows up to two FEET a day! Thus, quite a renewable resource.)

Brava Girls!

LOVE this trend. This cut really inspires me.

Beauty Bets

My girl Elizabeth Dehn, from MN Monthly, has her own gig - Beauty Bets.
We product whores must stick together. Her take on the beauty biz is more from the consumer/journalist perspective. Love it!
Oooooh, the fun we're gonna have!

Facebook & Twitter

Ok, I think I have Facebook figured out.......enough to understand I don't want to play mafia wars or collect stupid farm animals. (Yes, I love animals - real ones. And, I grew up knowing a couple of "made" men so I don't want to play the silly game.)

I have been trying to separate personal social networking from professional as I am certain my friends are tired of my StormSister Spatique updates. Sorry kids.

So, if you'd like to get all of the latest and greatest info/specials/BS about StormSister Spatique and/or the beauty biz, become a fan on Facebook or follow us @StormSister on Twitter.

Our own 3waybeauty brand is on FB and Twitter (@3waybeauty)as well!

Let There Be Light

Excerpt from the October edition of American Spa Magazine.Aveda's Shelley Bawiec dishes on skin-brightening products and services.
Many global skincare trends are established in Japan and other Asian markets, and the skin-brighteningmarket is one that has a long history in Asia. For centuries, women there have been diligent about maintaining a porcelain skin tone. The importance of luminous skin is still evident, as brightening services represent 23.5 percent of the facial market in Japan, and brightening is the second largest market in Asia, behind anti-aging. In the U.S., the brightening market is young by comparison, though product and service offerings are expanding. The U.S. market grew 17.4 percent from 2006 to 2007, with professional skincare sales reaching $13.5 million in 2007. While anti-aging productshave always driven the market, uneven pigmentation has joined the list of aging skin concerns.
In the past, hyperpigmentation was treated with prescription medication. Today,…

Product Feedback

I used the John Masters Evening Primrose shampoo and really like it. It lathered up really well with just a little bit, so it goes a long way. It also didn't feel like my hair was stripped after rinsing. In fact, it felt soft, which normally isn't the case for me. I'll definitely purchase again. Thanks again for making this recommendation and for the great customer service!

Take Care,
