Lately, my skin looks dull and tired. How can I make it look more energized?
Fatigued skin looks dull and lacklustre, and that’s usually because it’s lacking proper, restorative rest. If slowing down your schedule to get more rest isn’t an option (it so rarely is!), then make the most out of the sleep you are able to make and try an overnight mask. A substantial layer of a mask such as Lancôme Énergie de Vie Nuit Overnight Recovery Mask ($78, sephora.ca) will work wonders in a short span of time. This particular formula contains hydrating wild yam root extract, rhodiola root extract (helpful for fighting signs of fatigue), and gentiana root extract (radiance-boosting!). A few nights wearing this mask and your skin will appear more energized. Read more »


Afternoon Delight: I might be too obsessed with Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess

Comments

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Fragrance

You know you have a problem when you aren’t smelling so much as… huffing perfume. This, my friends, is my predicament every time I am near a bottle of Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess (which is often because I have three bottles on my desk). On paper, it’s a blend of bergamot, Tahitian gardenia, coconut, amber and sandalwood. To me, it’s what I am sure heaven smells like if heaven is a beach. One whiff of this baby and it won’t matter what’s going on outside. To you, it’ll smell like the perfect summer day.

I feel like most serums I come across are meant for anti-aging purposes. Does anything exist for acne-prone skin?
Anti-aging skincare accounts for a significant proportion of the products available on the market, and we’re always told it’s never too early to start exploring the options available to us. However, when you’re preoccupied with acne concerns, it can seem like every advanced product out there is for anti-aging. Not so! Estée Lauder Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum ($64, esteelauder.ca) will become a mainstay in your skincare routine because in addition to refining pores, calming skin and reducing redness thanks to algae and caffeine, it will use salicylic acid to stop breakout cycles from reoccurring. The serum works in a gentle way on a daily basis, giving you more even and balanced skin with continued use. Read more »


Happy Chinese New Year! Celebrate the Year of the Horse with 10 apropos fashion and beauty picks

Year of the Horse Fashion

See our Year of the Horse shopping picks »

Today marks the first day of the Year of the Horse, which, if you’re Chinese, means a weekend of lion dances, exchanging lucky money and epic eating ahead. Celebrations of the Lunar New Year are a big deal and while experts predict a year of tension ahead for those born under the sign (roughly those hatched in 1919, ’31, ’43, ’55, ’67, ’79, ’91 and ’03) we prefer to think on the positive side: tension relief a.k.a. shopping. After all, Horses are said to be big spenders and in that case, we’re probably all a little bit Horse too. Gung hay fat choy!

I like rose scents, but they seem a little old fashioned when I wear them. Any tips?
Rose-based fragrances are very traditional and quite classic, but don’t let that deter you from this beautiful floral note. Luckily, rose-based fragrances have had quite the resurgence lately, and there are several new varieties of rose scents to choose from. If modernity is the goal, Balenciaga Rosabotanica ($100, sephora.ca) is a unique fragrance to experience. The fragrance opens with bright notes of citrusy petitgrain and fig leaf, leading into middle notes of cardamom, pink pepper and rose, grounded with vetiver, cedar and white amber. The fragrance is anything but traditional, making it a contemporary take on a rose for lovers of the timeless flower. Read more »

Cleanser Masks trend

See our 3 cleanser mask picks »

During the bustle of summer, who has time for a skincare routine with multiple steps? And when we’re out cottaging or on a summer road trip, we have limited space in our bags for an entire line of products. That’s why we love the lastest multi-tasker on the beauty scene: cleanser masks. It’s a single product that can be used two ways—daily as a cleanser or weekly as a mask to help mattify, hydrate or prevent breakouts. Here are some new ones worth taking for a road test during the upcoming long weekend. Read more »

I have stretch marks that I’m really self-conscious about, particularly in the summer. Can I do anything to hide them?
You’re hardly alone in feeling painfully aware of stretch marks on your body! Stretch marks are the result of the rapid stretching of the dermis. Men and women alike can develop stretch marks, often from puberty or weight gain. Approximately 50-90 per cent of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy, which makes stretch marks a fairly common concern that ought to be addressed! Try a topical treatment such as Stratamark ($40, Shoppers Drug Mart). This gel forms a thin but essential occlusive barrier on the skin to create an optimized environment to normalize and hydrate the collagen synthesis process, which will lead to repaired skin. The gel is non-sticky, dries quickly and is transparent, so it can be applied any time. Reduced appearance of stretch marks is apparent in as little as a month, which is all the more reason to grab a tube and start applying now! Read more »


Beauty Fix: How to do a frizz-free blowout on the most humid of days and more answers to your beauty questions

How do I make my at-home blowout frizz-free in the summer?
Something key to remember is that the environment in which you blowdry your hair has a large impact on how your hair will react to heat styling. It’s advisable to blowdry your hair in a dry environment, i.e. not the bathroom you just steamed up with your shower! Next, make sure your hair is actually completely dry when you have completed the blowout. Any damp areas are likely to react to the air temperatures around you, which seldom results in smooth strands. Always finish hair with an anti-humidity spray, such as Oribe Imperméable Anti-humidity Spray ($44, at Donato Salon & Spa), which utilizes copolymer technology to shield hair from the impact of humidity, and also contains a UV filter to protect hair.
