It’s that time of year again…your social calendar is filling up. From office parties to holiday dinners and cocktail parties, you want to look your best especially since everyone loves to snap pictures and you may be caught in the camera’s flash. Even before you put on that fantastic outfit, do your hair and makeup there are a few things that we can do to prep for it underneath it all.
These are a few of my favorite no-so-secret beauty tools, that will have you looking and feeling your best from head to toe. I shared them today with Lianne Laing on CTV Morning Live. (click picture to go to video)
Our hair often takes a lot of abuse with weather and styling with hot tools and products. Give it a fighting chance by nourishing it from the inside. I love Viviscal Maximum Strength Hair Nourishment System, a 100% drug free, natural supplement with the exclusive and patented AminoMar C Marine Complex, a blend of deep sea proteins, Vitamin C, and horsetail extract that all work together to help nourish thinning hair from within, right where it begins to grow. It’s a clinically proven formula and loved by both celebrities and celebrity hairstylists. Since I’ve started taking it, my hair is shedding less, growing faster (I have to touch up my roots earlier than 4 weeks) and I can see fresh new growth in thin areas. Great for women and men. Find it at www.viviscal.ca starting at $59.99CAD
Everyone wants a brighter smile, but often the time and potential costs of teeth whitening have us shying away from it. Until now, with the Luster Pro Light system. In the privacy of your own home, with just 3 steps and 3 minutes you can be well on your way to a brighter whiter smile. Say bye bye to stains and discoloration. The Luster Pro Light kit contains everything you need for up to 20 treatments, from touch ups to full on whitening makeover and whitens 2x faster than trays or strips plus the bonus of zero tooth sensitivity! So easy, you can give a freshening up the day of a big event. Find it at Shoppers Drugmart for about $59.99CAD
The winter weather has our feet covered most of the time and we probably ignore them until it’s time to put on those pretty heels, then we may have a not so pretty feet situation. I got a great fix for that. I’m a huge fan of my Micro Pedi. It has to be the easiest beauty tool for feet ever! It is a hand held, battery operated device that has a micro mineral roller that spins 30x per second to gently buff away only the dry, hard skin easily and gently. In fact if you can brush your teeth, you can use the Micro Pedi. I use mine every couple of days after the shower so that I have sandal ready feet year round And guys, no excuses for you to have those rough and gnarly feet because there’s a Micro Pedi for you!

We want to take care of our nails and have them look pretty. One of the best ways is to look for formulas that are free of formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalate and if you can add in %100 vegan I say go for it. Mineral Fusion nail enamels are a long lasting, chip free formula that have a wide brush for more even color application and I found that it gave good color coverage in one coat, great if you are in a rush. The formula is infused with anti-oxidant rich minerals and come in a great 30+ shade collection. There is sure to be one for you and the price is great at $7.99 and you can find them at Whole Foods as well as London Drugs and if you aren’t near ether one you can order them at www.londondrugs.com
