The Top Beauty Miss, Solved

The Next Beauty Breakthrough?

Thanks to Nancy Ngo of the St. Paul Pioneer Press for such a great article on Horst Rechelbacher. There isn't a person I admire and respect more in my industry than Horst. When I was a young girl and knew I wanted to go to "beauty school", I asked my grandmother where I should go. Without a moments hesitation she said, "Horst" (now known as the Aveda Institute). I remember researching everything I could on Horst. I'll never forget how nervous my father was when we toured the campus - a beautiful, historic mansion in a sketchy area of Minneapolis. All was "right" in my world and the beauty industry was my home. I began selling INtelligent Nutrients in the salon and spa I owned with my sister, when IN was first only dietary supplements. IN has continued to grow into an expanding organic aromatherapy, hair, and skincare brand. Their work with the Uof M and Mayo is exciting and unlike any other beauty brand. IN is special and unique in every

Antioxidant Truth

via American Spa Magazine Every company claims that antioxidant-rich products combat the signs of aging, but are there really benefits behind the hype? That depends. People often equate antioxidants with  anti-aging. Just about every advertisement for a skincare cream claims that its antioxidant ingredients turn back the hands of time and that they’re a panacea to wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. But what are they exactly? Produced by the body and also found in vitamins, enzymes, and botanicals, antioxidants are best known for fighting free radicals, the unstable molecules that cause damage to healthy cells and genetic material, over time accelerating the signs of aging and contributing to diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. Yet as antioxidants have increasingly pervaded our culture, they have also produced myths. Is the antioxidant fountain of youth too good to be true? Yes and no. The subject of recent scrutiny, a number of studies have shown that ta

This sure put a spring in our step - Thanks so much, Kate! I walked into a Ulta Beauty after meeting with an esthetician to talk about the gruesome reality my skin had become. She suggested a full-redo of my make-up, (don’t they always,) and I suggested we start with the basics. While glaring at the Dermalogica wall, I looked longingly to what I knew, just on the other side of the store. My early twenties were defined in brown eyeliner and lip gloss. The Maybelline, Covergirl and Ulta brands begged me to stop taking myself so seriously. It dawned on me when I realized, “they want me to spend small amounts of money on lots of things. They want me to try it and then want to try something else. It’s disposable and harmful.” Quality skincare products are much more expensive than their drugstore counterparts. This much, I’m learning....... more here.
