A Splash of Citrus

excerpt fromAmerican Spa MagazinebyMaya Stanton

At home and abroad, on retail shelves and treatment menus alike, these mid-winter marvels shine.

As welcome as a shipment of tart, juicy grapefruit from the Sunshine State in the middle of a nor’easter, citrus fruits such as lemon, lime, orange, and tangerine contribute a shot of warmth and brightness to everything from purifying mists and toners to aromatherapy, massages, and facials. Loaded with antioxidants and nutrients such as potassium and vitamins A and C, the immune boosting fruits are star players in the beauty world.

Citrus oils are amazing mood li­fters,” says Amy Galper, executive director of the New York Institute of Aromatherapy. “In the winter, especially, this is something that can energize us and make us feel a little brighter and happier. Red mandarin, grapefruit, and sweet orange can be used to help li­ghten the mood, provide emotional balance, and give confidence.” In addition to their mind-altering properties, she s…

Beauty Building Blocks

excerpt from American Spa Magazine.

Experience a youthful resurgence with plant stem cell products that leave skin looking and feeling younger and healthier.

From caviar and diamonds to gold  and snake venom, spa-goers today are willing to go to extremes in search of the fountain of youth. Now, stem cells have become all the rage because of their super age-defying powers. “The growth factors found in stem cells provide the messaging molecules necessary to trigger collagen and elastin production, therefore providing the basis for healthier and younger looking skin,” says Crystal McElroy, national educator and sales and account executive for Dermatude North America. “They also have antioxidant properties that protect the human skin from damage and deterioration.”

Multicellular organisms—like animals, humans, and plants—contain stem cells, but plant stem cells are most commonly used in skincare. These are undifferentiated cells located in the meristems of plants, where growth takes place…

Babe Lash

I finally found a mascara that I absolutely adore! - Babe Lash Volumizing Mascara. It comes in one color - Jet Black.

Babe's Jet Black Volumizing Mascara is powered by peptides, herbal extracts and other nutrient-rich vitamins (like Panthenol and Vitamin E) which help nourish and build up your long lashes.
Achieve instant high definition with the dynamic, thick bristle brush which loads and separates each lash with jet black volume and drama in an ultra-smooth application that won't clump or run. Ophthalmologist-tested and hypoallergenic, this formula is perfect for creating finishing touches for your lashes whether it be for dazzling daytime effects or a night on the town. 
Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Easy to remove.

The most important beauty product comes in a spoon.

INTELLIMUNE® OIL:  THOUSANDS OF FREE RADICAL FIGHTERS SQUEEZED INTO EVERY CERTIFIED ORGANIC DROP OF THIS SUPER-ANTIOXIDANT.

Did you know: Exposure to UV rays, pollution and other environmental toxins (like stressful people and traffic) create free radicals that attack our cells.

In response, our immune system kicks in. That creates inflammation, which has been linked to everything from wrinkles, lines and sagging skin to diseases such as cancer. Antioxidants are the best defense, and we believe the Intellimune antioxidant is the best of the best.

What's your 50?

We are so thrilled and honored to be featured in the inaugural issue of e-zine, Promise50-page 3 - Want to clean up our environment? Try a 3-way.

I truly believe that I do a lot to tread nicely on Mommy Nature. Then I read this article and was so inspired and enlightened to do more - SO MANY suggestions I hadn't even thought of. Wow!

Get your copy.

Our friend Sasha Westin, of Fabuliss, is also featured with tips on buying clothes that last. Great stuff.

Make a Promise. Promise 50.
It's easier than you think and a fun "challenge" for the new year.

I will consume 50% less: Of disposable goods and products designed with built-in obsolescence. Of carbon-burning activities, except when absolutely necessary. Of wants instead of needs. Of clutter that clouds my psyche as it pollutes our world.

I will waste 50% less: Of unnecessary packaging and other “instant garbage” –items designed to be used once and then tossed. Of non-compostable materials and even of recycling—which is …

Happy 2014!

< -------  We had a WONDERFUL night and woke up with a little of this, this morning.  Doh!
We are super excited for what 2014 has in store for StormSister Spatique and 3waybeauty
We're only a few hours into the new year and look what we found in our email box:
A two-page spread in the January 2014 edition of Fashion Affair Magazine!!! TWO PAGES.
Fueling that good attitude could be our latest discovery, 3WayBeauty Bar. A unique 3 month blending process from this Made In The USA wonder, has just insured you more time with that snooze button. Shampoo, Shower & Shave--then out the door. All with the same bar of soap.
The smell should be familiar: Coconut, sweet almond, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, palm and kukui nut will seduce you into submission.
Think of it as the “fast lane” when you are running behind. This new beauty regime should have you putting the keys in the ignition on time for once. Or if you love it too much, it could have you running even later. The choice is clear…
