Self Mag's Annual Healthy Beauty Awards are all about the best of beauty for every budget. Beauty Director, Elaine D’Farley gave us a sneak peek at some of them.
Let’s start with skincare... exposure to UVA, UVB rays can accelerate skin aging and can damage skin at the cellular level and cause 80% of the visible signs of aging.
Elizabeth Arden has come out with prevage® Triple Defense, that provides the most powerful combination of sun and environmental protection, and neutralizes up to 80% of infrared-a radiation to help your skin fight premature signs of aging.
Its has a really lightweight and luxurious finish that leaves you skin soft and hydrated…works well alone, over moisturizer, even under makeup. $79.00.
Another breakthrough beauty buy, SELF readers loved, StriVectin-EV Get Even Spot Repair, it actually slows discoloration at the source…with the ingredient niacin, that helps balance skin so it doesn’t overproduce melanin, a cause of age spots. It has a pen applicator that makes it extra easy to apply to any spot, no matter how small ---plus, it has a mega dose of Vitamin C that revs collagen to soften lines. Great stuff, $49.
Now, readers just loved this, L'Oréal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Golden Balm, Face/Neck/Chest. It's a nourishing balm, enriched with skin-strengthening calcium and 10 precious oils that leave your skin supple, fortified and resilient with 24-hour hydration. It’s luxurious, butter-soft texture, melts on contact with skin. Can use it for both day and night $19.99 at drugstores, a real steal.
Now for the hair…new, Dove Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum…this lightweight cream-serum is loved by Self readers because it delivers both the nourishment of a cream and the shine benefits of a serum in one. It gives you shiny, frizz-free, satin-smooth hair all day long...under $4 at drugstores and supermarkets.
With makeup, it’s all about the glossy lip and the best this year goes to Ulta for Brilliant Color Lip Gloss, in Cupcake. It gives you great color with a high shine finish but its not sticky! It also conditions your lips with aloe and Vitamin A & E, in a yummy vanilla scent-$8 at Ulta stores or www.ulta.com
Of course, liquid eyeliner is a totally hot trend right now... Makeup Forever’s, Highly Pigmented, Smudge-Proof Collection, comes in 15 vibrant shades with matte, iridescent and diamond finishes. It has 50% more polymers than traditional eyeliner so it is long lasting and waterproof and it has amino acids derived from apple juice for this bold intensity...$23 dollars at Sephora.
