Monday, July 6th, 2009 | Beauty Tips, General, Photos, Product Picks, Skincare | 2 Comments

While Meilily is on vacation in Kauai, here are some beauty and skincare product tips on what to bring on your next summer beach vacation… Check out this comparison of what Meilily brought, and what Meilily actually ended up using (and not using) while on vacation!

Beauty & Skincare Products for a Summer Beach Vacation

Meilily Summer Beach Vacation Products

Must-haves…

  • Mineral Sunscreen -Lavera Sun Block SPF 40 Neutral Sunscreen (thick, mineral sun protection, whitening, but actually waterproof- perfect for hiking, snorkeling, and even beach-sitting!)
  • Insect Repellent – Skin So Soft BUG GUARD Plus Picaridin Insect Repellent Towelettes (easy to apply in the right amount and smells pretty good)
  • Natural Deodorant – Tom’s of Maine Natural Long-lasting Care Deodorant in Apricot (great, but perhaps not enough for a day-long trek through a swamp apparently)
  • Hair Conditioner sample packets – DHC has some generous hair care samples (4 Free DHC Samples with Every Order.)
  • A basic razor – I brought a disposable razor (shame on me), but non-disposable works too
  • A wide brim fold-able sun hat – found one at Nordstrom on sale (so useful in hot sun!)
  • Large sunglasses (really helps keep the delicate eye area protected from sun)

Good-to-haves… › Continue reading

Beauty Tips: How to Look as Fantastic as Cindy Crawford at 43 in the Latest Allure Photo Spread!

Monday, March 30th, 2009 | Beauty Tips, Skincare | 8 Comments

The April 2009 issue of Allure Magazine includes a surprise spread featuring none other than legendary supermodel Cindy Crawford looking fantastic and fit.  Not only does 40+ Cindy Crawford look youthful in the Allure photos, but she also looks healthy, in a supermodel-esque way.

Healthy Beauty: Cindy Crawford in Allure April 2009

Healthy Beauty: Cindy Crawford in Allure April 2009

This latest photo spread in Allure Magazine is an excellent example of how healthy beauty is currently “in.” It looks like the days of fast food replacing home-cooked meals or of the waif-ish stick silouette replacing the hourglass figure may truly be gone. We could even start finding ourselves looking for new icons of beauty – beauty in health and beauty in strength.  The striking Allure photograph of Cindy Crawford ripping apart a loaf of bread wearing a bikini definitely illustrates such iconic beauty in health and in strength, featuring toned muscles, glowing smooth skin, and… rustic organic whole grain bread.

How to achieve such a youthful, healthy look?

Meilily’s Tips for Looking Healthy, Strong, and Beautiful:

Meilily Tip 1. Keep your body well-rested - Who’s going to care that your friends stayed up all night partying 2 days in a row (while you stayed in and got your beauty sleep) when you show up at the next event looking amazing? Meilily thinks sleeping in is the best beauty treatment ever!

Meilily Tip 2. Take a chill pill and give your head a break - Why stress out over little things that don’t matter? Research has shown that the body responds better to allergens when it has less stress and more rest. Plus, red, itchy skin is never attractive! › Continue reading
