10 Steps For Spring Ready Skin

Multi-ethnic group of young women: African, Asian, Indian and Caucasian.

Recently, we checked in with Dr. Lydia Evans who has some great tips on how to get our skin and face ready for spring.

10. Examine your skin care regimen
As it gets warmer, you may need a lighter moisturizer (a lotion instead of a cream), or a stronger cleanser.

9. If you do not use an exfoliator, consider starting two to three times a week.
Exfoliators  remove old skin cells which can produce a dull complexion.

8. Think about a toner.
As your skin becomes oilier, you may want to begin using a toner, or increase the frequency of use if this is already part of your routine.  Toners are helpful in removing deep oil, dirt, and make-up from pores. Use them after exercising, working outdoors, or a day in the city.

7. Get a medical grade facial from a qualified professional.
Removing stubborn blockages from clogged pores will make your skin look smoother and healthier.

6.Make sure you use cosmetics and/or sunscreens that protect against UVA and UVB rays. 
As the intensity of the sun increases, so does your risk of damage, even on a cloudy day.

5. Pay attention to your body. 
An exfoliating body wash followed by a body moisturizer will get rid of those dry flakes, making you feel smoother and softer.

4. Remember your heels. 
Thickened, discolored skin on your heels is unattractive in sandals.  A potent glycolic acid cream especially formulated to remove tough, dry skin works great.

3. Look at your cuticles.
Winter can be especially rough on hands, leaving ragged skin around the nails. Massage a moisturizing cream with lactic or glycolic acid around your cuticles twice a day.

2. Love your lips.
After the winter, their surface can be uneven with peeling and flaking.  Frequent application of lip balms is helpful.  A lip exfoliator will remove dry patches, so lipstick application will be smoother.

1.Lighten up those tell-tale brown spots. 
Some flat discolorations will improve with high quality bleaching creams; others, as well as elevated spots, may require mechanical removal. Fraxel treatments are especially helpful for this problem. Clear skin always looks fresher and more youthful.

Follow these tips and you’ll be ready in no time!

LookBook: Jump From Winter To Spring

all celeb jumpsuits

I don’t know about anyone else….but my skin and closet are screaming for warm weather!  Haven’t started the hunt for spring/summer outfits?  Well I was browsing the mall (as usual) in search of some inspiration and a great sale of course, and I bumped into about 3 different girls sport floral print jumpsuits.  Now I know what your thinking..that this piece is very summary, BUT it can still be rocked in the cool weather! Heres how. Select the jumpsuit of your choice which will bring forth the spring feel, but the best part is you can pair up the suite with a jean jacket, your fav heels and a cute clutch…and you have just created a new look for almost nothing.  Now your average jumpsuit will run you about $35-50 dollars, but again its one of those investment pieces that I’m sure you’ll get your moneys worth out of it. Shop for your suit at H&M, Forever21, BEBE or even Macy’s. On the flip side, as the warm weather approaches, simply ditch the jean jacket, keep the sexy heels (dahh) and like many of our fav celebs you have a rockin outfit that speaks in colors volumes!

Style Watch: Spring Colors



As I was walking around campus today it felt like spring… and it inspired me to do some research  for th top 5 color that will be popular this spring.

Tangerine Orange









Marc by Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Tam and Jennie Packham Spring 2012 RTW | Elle

Pantone named tangerine the color of 2012, so get ready to see this bright hue everywhere this spring. Tangerine is a highly-saturated orange with a reddish undertone, which makes it a flattering shade on most skin tones. It can be done modestly with and accessory or two for boldly with a dress or pants.








Chanel, Vera Wang and Rodarte Spring 2012 RTW | Elle

One of my favorite color family are pastels the adjectives sweet, fun and flirty come to mind when I think of pastels. Mint green is the new pastel trend for this spring.   It is a lovely mix between blue and green and gives off a light, airy vibe. Mint goes great with both like and dark colors and it perfect for a spring look.


Kelly Green








Jo No Fui, Diane von Furstenberg and Akris Spring 2012 RTW | Elle

 This color has been on everyone watch list ever since Emily Blunt rocked a kelly green Dress at the SAG Awards a few weeks back, so we’re ecstatic it’ll be über-popular for spring. This bright green shade is definitely a head-turner and I can’t wait to wear kelly green shorts, sundresses and sandals throughout spring and summer.









Jill Stuart, Tory Burch and Christian Siriano Spring 2012 RTW | Elle

It would be spring and summer with no pink! Coral pink and bright with a base color of orange. The shade of pink mixes girly with edge so it suitable for all womens. It also looks great on multiple skin tones.










J. Mendel, Rebecca Taylor and Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 RTW | Elle

The color totally say bye bye winter! This shade is a boooooold color its almost neon yellow. It a great tone that flatter many skin tones and add a sense of fun and flare to any out fit. When wearing this color any other color should be added subtly.
