Celebrities Reveal Their Secrets to Looking Younger

This is a TotalBeauty.com anti-aging skin care article

It’s not just genetics that affect our skin. Our lifestyle choices, nutrition, and skin care also play a huge role in how we age. Take these celebrity examples: Kathie Lee Gifford and Christie Brinkley. They’re both 58 but Brinkley looks decades younger. How? A few of these expert tips will help you steal her secrets.

Reveal their secrets

The 2012 I Heart Radio festival in Las Vegas is amazing!
It opened with No Doubt and Gwen Stefani looked amazing! So beautiful and in shape. Makes me want to put this burger down…

Ok-this video is a short tutorial for her hair style. I love the (what I have coined as) duo sumo rolls with a top twist. The twist is what is so exciting because it’s not the trendy braid. My short bangs had a hard time twisting into a smooth shape.

Thank goodness for my Bosley Volumizing and Thickening gel!

I spritzed all hairs into place with Smooth n Shine Diamond Luster pump hairspray.

I used a Goody comb, a few bobby pins and some basic brown hair elastics to match my hair color.

 1. Smooth some gel into your hair and make a side part in line with the end of your eyebrow.

2. Comb the hair sideways and section two pieces off at the hairline where it meets the forhead and begin to twist. Pull sections of hair into the twist just like you would a french braid-but caution- do not go past the part line on the twist side. You need to have about a 1 inch section of hair above the ear to smooth back into a sumo roll.

3. Pin the twist and secure with hairspray. Next comb the sides back to begin a sumo roll, use the gel to smooth the hair above the ears as you comb the hair straight back. Secure in a pony tail holder and before you pull the hair through the holder for a pony tail, simply stop half way and create a roll.

 4. Fan the roll out. I had to pin my sumo roll up on the inside of the roll against my head because even with fanning out the roll, my thin hair wouldn’t stand up.

5. Finish the I Heart Radio No Doubt Gwen Stefani hairstyle look by pulling the bottom section of hair into the ponytail holder and pull it into a sumo roll.

Spray with hairspray and fan out the bottom sumo roll, smooth the tails and fan out for a spikey effect.

Love the look! Enjoy the video!

My favorite part was when Pink came on stage and sang I’m Just a Girl with Gwen Stefani. Too good!

Buffalo Tallow soap and lotion: picked up in South Dakota

When to Ditch Your Workout Gear

Yes, even workout gear has expiration dates. Look for these signs of wear and tear now

When to Ditch Your Workout Gear

This is a TotalBeauty.com fitness article

Sure those Nike Free Runs and Lululemon spandex cost you a pretty penny, but that doesn’t mean they’ll last forever. Turns out, holding onto worn out workout gear is actually costing you more. Experts say your old gear can be the reason for your acne, back pain, and ineffective workouts. So, save yourself the trouble and check for these signs that let you know it’s time to go shopping.

See signs

Buffalo Tallow from South Dakota

Hand made, with an expiration date-I was sold an expired dated lotion-though I suppose that is half my fault for not checking and half the fault of the retailer for putting out expired goods.

I bought a bar of Amber Woods Buffalow Tallow soap and the hand lotion to match.

I like the spicey woodsy scent and the soap has a very low sudsing effect which tells me there are no sulfates in it to foam up.

By using the natural Buffalo tallow the Prairie Soap Co. is reinstituting an age old tradition of using the naturally sourced provision of skin moisturization-animal fat. There are no parabens or artifical colors, just natural oils.

I’m enjoying my soap and lotion, even though they are expired.

9 Biggest Pitfalls at the Health Food Store

This is a TotalBeauty.com diet article

When I walk into Whole Foods, I feel like I have the grocery store equivalent of a “Get Out of Jail Free” card. I don’t check the nutrition label because I assume that everything in the store is healthy. But turns out even health food stores have gluttonous snacks that aren’t so great for you and your summer diet. Before your next trip, see which 9 snacks are the unhealthiest picks.

Hello Gorgeous!
I am using the Mally Beauty Ultimate Brow Fix in Sable. I could not find a photo of this wee pot of cool toned brown gel that comes with a dual ended tool that is one side of slant tip brush and the other with a wee mascara like wand that helps pull brows up into place.

I will do more to find a photo to show you because my results with this product are fun and amazing.

I’m out on adventure trekking filming fun, and I put this on as fast as possible in the morning ( to allow a wee minute more of rest!) and it lasts nearly all day (12 hours or more) whether I am sweating, in sun, in rain, in river lake or raft.

I love that I can draw my brows on with one end and then quickly, notice the word quickly, pull the brow hairs up in to place to make a very full brow look.

Since I have the smallest amount of time to get my makeup on, there is no time for precision pencil or defined brows. For me right now, it’s about getting color and shape on and I am liking the fuller look.

When I find a photo or video-perhaps I will make my own when time allows-I will show/post about this unique and lasting product.

If you are a beach bride-DIY bride, and going to be in humidity but want your brow look to last through photos, ceremony and reception: you NEED this product!

Hello Gorgeous!
I wanted to share some beauty information as many young ladies are getting ready to go back to school soon. It’s written by Elizabeth Shimer Bowers and medically reviewed by Niya Jones, MD, MPH.

There are a number of reasons to do a sweep of outdated products — are you really going to wear that blue eyeshadow again? — but the most important reason is that old cosmetics pose a host of potential health risks.

“Most beauty products are designed to stay fresh and stable only for a limited period of time,” explains Jessica Wu, MD, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Southern California and a dermatologist in private practice in Los Angeles. “After that, they start to break down, so your cream might not work as well, your makeup may streak or change color, or — worst case scenario — you could develop a terrible infection.” Here’s how to give your health and beauty arsenal a much-needed spring cleaning, any time of year.

Mally Beauty: Volumizing Water Proof mascara-for wedding and white water rafting adventure

Hello Gorgeous!
I’m traveling and it’s an adventure, to say the least.
Now-for the river and lake mixed with rainy days of this journey, I’m using Mally Beauty volumizing waterproof mascara.

In short, I’m glad to have it because it holds up under wet conditions-though I am having trouble getting it off. Darn.

If you are a bride and want to keep moist eyes from running and ruining wedding photos-I recommend it.

As for me, I’m going to use it through the rest of the shoot, but most likely will return to a non water proof version of mascara after!

Here’s a bit from the website for Mally Beauty! Enjoy!
***

This unique formula helps create the look of gorgeous, full, luxurious lashes. The combination of natural waxes and carefully chosen powders gives lashes an instant boost…oh, and did we mention it’s waterproof?!

Apply to lashes from base to tip. For luminous lashes, apply one coat, let it dry, then apply a second coat. Repeat until you’ve got the lash look you love.

 Hello Gorgeous!
Happy summer to you!
I am traveling and what I packed with me is a whole kit and caboodle of Mally Beauty products.

This Perfect Prep poreless primer glow is perfect for brides, professional business head shots or acting head shots.

It’s simple to use and wears really well for quite some time-but here’s the tip that’s helping me: it needs a wee moment of dry down time so your foundation does not slip off if it’s a liquid or get patchy if it’s a mineral powder.

True, it’s possible that I have simply put too much on-but so far, even after blending it down with my foundation brush, it needed just a moment to set up.

I am enjoying mine it’s helping keep my skin camera ready in any weather while trekking, traveling and filming. Try some!
