Each year, in honor of national Génifique Day, hundreds of thousands of dollars in vital donations are raised for St. Jude. Each Génifique bottle sold helps the hospital find cures. It costs, $2 million a day to operate the hospital, so 21 bottles can pay for one night of family housing. Nine bottles could cover one blood count test. Five bottles can buy a day of meals. And just three bottles could pay for one bone marrow needle. It’s that easy to make a difference and your individual contribution can help in so many ways.

“I’m honored to be affiliated with a brand such as Lancôme that supports such a worthy and meaningful cause,” Lancôme Ambassadress Lupita Nyong’o states. “Growing up, I witnessed doctors in my own family work tirelessly to restore the health of people around them. I understand how important it is to support efforts to find cures for critical diseases, and I therefore proudly support the work that St. Jude is doing, especially in pediatric cancer, to help the children there lead better, healthier lives.”

Best Skincare Ingredient Review: Black Pine Extract Contains Polyphenol Antioxidants For Anti-Aging Benefits – How It Works

Pinterest

korres black pine Best Skincare Ingredient Review: Black Pine Extract Contains Polyphenol Antioxidants For Anti-Aging Benefits - How It Works review

With so many products out on the market today, you might not know EXACTLY how each and every anti-aging, brightening, hydrating, powerhouse blend of ingredients work. Never fear! BeautyStat is here to help you better understand some of the most important and good-for-your-skin ingredients out today. But right now, we’re talking about Black Pine Extract

The mesmerizing aroma of the Christmas tree soothes your home for the holidays. But, did you know the fragrant, peaceful essence and oil of pine trees has healing properties that have been used for centuries? The scent of pine you love so much for the holidays can be important in keeping your skin, body and mind serene all year long.

The Black Pine

Black pine extract is harvested from trees in the Mediterranean. These amazing black pine trees flourish under the most extreme climates and conditions. They can live to be over 500 years old, producing a fragrant oil distilled from the long, delicate needles used in aromatherapy for saunas, steam baths and massages. New research has found that black pine extract has powerful anti-aging properties as well.

A Fragrant Beauty Bonus

Black pine extract contains an antioxidant called polyphenol. Polyphenol antioxidants are found in fruits like blackberries, blueberries, cranberries and in vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and parsley. You can also find them in your favorite red wine. The isolation of the polyphenols in the extract and their incorporation into creams and serums have produced products capable of transferring the survival and healing properties of black pine extract directly to your beauty regimen.

A favorite among nail techs, Gehwol was founded in 1889 by Eduard Gerlach, considered to be the pioneer of modern foot care. Try the Herbal Lotion along with the Herbal Bath to soothe your tired toes with the fragrance of pine.

What does it mean for you to be a L’Oréal Paris spokesperson?

It’s such an incredible honor and I’m so excited to be joining the L’Oréal Paris family. It’s been a dream of mine to work with L’Oréal and I’m so thrilled to be representing such an incredible brand.

What are your favorite L’Oréal Paris products?

Skincare is key for me. The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum Concentrate keeps my skin healthy and even. For my hair, I love the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Volume Filler Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair has taken a beating through the years, so it helps plump it up — and it smells really good. For eyes, L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H is great.

Juvederm Treatments Are An Amazing Solution For Anyone Seeking Youthful Skin – Sponsored Review

Pinterest

juvederm Juvederm Treatments Are An Amazing Solution For Anyone Seeking Youthful Skin - Sponsored Review
As we get older, our bodies change and mature. You may have noticed as the years go by that
you feel more comfortable or familiar in your own skin. However, you may notice that certain aspects of your physical appearance are, disappointingly, “not what they used to be.” That glowing and plump skin of youth can fade away as folds and wrinkles begin to appear. This can be disappointing, especially if you’re someone who wants to age with grace and happiness instead of frustration and resentment. Thankfully, there are procedures out there that can do wonders to bring back healthy-looking, youthful skin.

How To Tell If You Need Botox: Best Treatment For Wrinkles, Underarm Sweating And Migraines

While you may have heard about complicated, dangerous and expensive surgeries, or creams
and potions that claim to change lots but actually do little, the truly best solution when it comes
to anti-aging treatments lies in something called Juvederm.

Hyaluronic Acid

The thing that sets Juvederm apart from every other anti-aging treatment  on the market is the fact that its formula is based around a chemical that naturally occurs in  the human body called hyaluronic acid. This chemical helps to smooth out your skin and give it that youthful “glow” you may find waning as you age — levels of HA and collagen diminish in the body over time, which is one of the reasons why skin loses its supple, elastic qualities.

How Does The Treatment Work?

Juvederm is remarkable in terms of being non-invasive and accessible. All you need
in order to receive a treatment is a clinic you trust, like Toronto’s Skin Vitality, where you can
go and identify the areas of your face that you’d like to see treated. A trusted clinician will mark
off these areas, and discuss with you exactly what you’d like to see from the results of your treatment. Then, you will receive the treatment, which itself is quick and painless. Afterwards, you can go about your day as you normally would.

The injection procedure lasts approximately 15-minutes. There are few reported side effects of Juvederm treatments, and those that do occur most frequently are mild. The most common side effects are slight redness or tenderness at the injection site. Any side effects associated with the procedure will last a week or less.

Can Everyone Receive The Juvederm Treatment?

It’s been shown that the treatment is effective for people with various skintones, and is safe and effective for people of any skin color. The results of the treatment will last for an average of twelve months, before another treatment is necessary; repeat injections will be required to maintain a person’s optimal skin smoothness.

Juvederm treatments offer the best of all possible worlds — little risk and a ton of rewards, all for anyone who wants to make their skin look its best at all times. Accepting the aging process doesn’t mean you have to surrender to dull skin. All you have to do is head over to a clinic like Skin Vitality, the best clinic for facial fillers in Toronto, Canada, and get the treatment you’ve been looking for.
