Dove Dry Spray at Fashion Week

Categories: Beauty

During World MasterCard Fashion Week, it’s a hustle for me to get ready for the evening shows after a full day of work. As I’m rushing to get ready, the last thing I want to do is wait for my antiperspirant to dry. The innovative new Dove Dry Spray solves that problem and keeps me on time for the shows! It sprays on instantly dry for a fresh and clean feel that lasts for 48 hours. It’s no wonder they appealed to other fast lane fashionistas like me at fashion week this season!

Tattoo Removal with Dr. Rice and PicoSure

Categories: Beauty

When I was 18 years old, I decided it would be cool to get a lower back tattoo. That was 12 years ago – before the term “tramp stamp” became the taboo nickname for my foolish and oh so permanent decision. Needless to say, I regretted it, but the options for tattoo removal were too expensive and not guaranteed back then. Fortunately, I can hide my tattoo most of the time, and I’ve gotten used to brushing off the odd tramp stamp jab. Now that I’m 31 and I think about being a role model and a Mom one day, I want to get rid of this tattoo more than ever. I was very excited to hear about PicoSure – a new and super effective tattoo removal treatment.

You mean, I don’t have to live with this forever?!

Dr. Sean Rice of Rice Cosmetic Surgery, in Toronto, is the first Plastic Surgeon in Canada to offer tattoo removal treatments with PicoSure. After watching a few of his (many) media interviews, I knew that Dr. Rice would be the right expert to meet with regarding my tattoo.

My Viviscal Hair Journey – Part 1

Categories: Beauty

I’m pretty consistent with my look – I keep my makeup simple and I almost always style my hair with the same soft, touchable waves. I wish I could tell you that my signature hairstyle comes naturally, but my hair’s a disaster if I let it air dry. Alas, I rely on hot tools – everyday. I use heat protectant products so my hair is pretty healthy, but heat damage and shedding is still a concern for me. When Viviscal Canada approached me to be one of their Brand Ambassadors, I jumped at the chance to test this revolutionary hair nourishment system.

I’ve travelled a lot over the past six months. Seven countries, nine cities, eighteen flights and I’m about to embark on three more business trips next month! I’ve experienced drastic changes in temperature, dryness, humidity, pollution and all kinds of water in various hotels (with recycled, over-air-conditioned air of course). Needless to say, travelling can be stressful on my skin!

Travel Skincare Tips

Taking care of my skin is very important to me so I take precautions to avoid dehydration, sensitization and breakouts while I’m travelling. I always drink lots of water while maintaining a consistent skincare routine wherever I am, but I recently asked my friends at Dermalogica for their top five travel skincare tips – keep reading for their expert advice!
