Shape Magazine’s 1-2-3 beauty punch for the New Year

December 31, 2013  |  BEAUTY, HEALTH & FITNESS  |  , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on Shape Magazine’s 1-2-3 beauty punch for the New Year

Skip the same old resolutions of getting back to the gym, losing weight, etc, etc. Instead, start the year off with a few beauty updates that will make you look and feel like a new YOU in the new year. Plus, they’re a little easier to attain and stick with. So, how did we get so smart? A little birdie from SHAPE, Bahar Takhtehchian, filled us in.

Tip 1: Skin Makeover                              Tip 2: Blowouts All Year Long


Amarte skincare has a two-in-one serum and toner that’s really going to help your skin look and feel more hydrated and smooth. The Aqua Veil Hydrator is infused with cucumber and optimizes your skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture.


Upgrade your at-home blowout with a Rowenta Inspiration Pro Dryer. It has an ionic generator that reduces frizz, and a professional-quality motor reduces dry time.








Tip 3: Change Up Your Hair Color          Tip 4: Confidence with a Smile


Salon-quality color right at home with the do-it-yourself kit. It’s a foam formula, which means there are no drips, no mess, and no way you’ll miss those hard-to-reach areas.


Listerine Ultraclean has a new EVERFRESH technology that gives you a dentist-clean feeling every time you use it. Reaches 75% of your mouth that brushing alone might miss.

We’re thankful for a lot of things here at LifeMinute…but we’re especially grateful for Cheryl Kramer Kaye from STAR magazine. Not only is she funny and beautiful, but also chock full of beauty knowledge.  She came by the studio just before the holidays to fill us in on the best beauty products to get our glam on this season.

We Keep it Cool this Summer

We got what you need to beat the heat this summer (and look super stylish while doing it!). Bicoastal beauty editor, Ning Chao shared with us a page out of her summer survival guide. Here are two of Ning’s fab finds to keep us cool!


Starbucks Bottled Iced Coffee (hitting your local Starbucks, grocery, convenient and drug stores just in time for summer) is not only delicious but a perfect grab-and-go boost to get through the dog days of summer and keep cool.

It comes in three flavors: Coffee and Milk, Vanilla, and Low Calorie Coffee and Milk (our fav for just 50 calories). At only $1.99 a bottle, we can’t find an iced coffee cheaper!

And the go-to hair style for the summer is the bun! Not only does it look sleek but it also keeps you cool. Ning says to get the perfect summer bun try Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin. We are WOWed by these two pins that do the work of 20 bobby pins!
