posted in: Uncategorized | 9

So we made it! The holidays are over and we can start fresh. I wanted to share some health & beauty essentials to start the year off right.

Let’s start with our faces:

MDSUN Super Hydration B Serum at

If you have not been taking care of your skin, now is a great time to start! MD SUN was developed by Dr. George Sun to solve skin problems but also strengthen skin’s natural barriers to build healthy skin over time. I’ve been using this serum for a couple of weeks and – I test a lot of products – this beauty essential has become one of my favorites. It’s great under makeup or at night and is enriched with high concentrations of vitamin B, which intensely hydrates the skin (great for this weather). This anti-aging formula diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and improves uneven skin tone.

Have you always been a bit iffy about your smile? It’s never too late to address it.

healthy & beautiful with Invisalign

Invisalign Clear Aligners (up to $5000) are an amazing alternative to traditional braces. They work just like braces and move teeth over time, but they are nearly invisible and are removable when needed. You wear them 20-22 hours a day and remove them to eat and brush your teeth. Length of treatment depends on the severity of your case. Check out to find an Invisalign-trained doctor near you.


How about a little mind, body, spirit…

Burning a candle always puts me in a relaxed state of mind, which we need more of these days. But these are more than just candles! The all-natural Destiny Candle BY KAREN MICHELLE (4 oz: $14.99. 8 oz: $24.99) is made right here in the US, and as you burn it, it becomes a luxurious body massage oil with nourishing ingredients like jojoba and coconut oil – great for this cold, dry weather we’ve been having! When you melt it down, you find a surprise piece of jewelry inside that could be worth up to $10,000!

Let’s talk tech.

If you’re using the same scale you bought for your first apartment, it’s time for an upgrade. The EatSmart Precision Body Check Scale ($39.95) at Amazon measures weight, of course, but it also monitors 6 other health metrics, like BMi, body fat, muscle mass, bone mass and more. And 8 different people can have their own profiles!

Bodimetrics Performance Monitor ($249) at Bloomingdale’s

Get in touch with your health with this new personal performance monitor! In just 20 seconds, you can measure vital health data like heart rate variability, pulse rate and temperature and share/track the info with a free iOS or Android app.  It also has a “relax me” trainer with breathing exercises to help you relax. If you’re feeling generous, you can share it with up to 4 family members.

How about beauty from the inside out?

Neocell Beauty Infusion beauty essentials

NeoCell Beauty Infusion ($34.99) at as well as your local Whole Foods or GNC will give you just the kick you need in the New Year! It’s a refreshing drink loaded with essential nutrients, such as Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, that work together to strengthen hair and nails, hydrate skin, and provide antioxidant power against environmental damage.

    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?

    Thank you!

      Hi there, Thanks for reaching out! I can’t see where I can make adjustments to your settings. The best thing to do would be to unsubscribe and then re-subscribe. So sorry about that!
