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

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

Product Pick: L’Oreal Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate

Saturday, November 15th, 2008 | Product Picks, Sales, Skincare | 1 Comment

Product Pick:  LOreal Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate

Product Pick: LOreal Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate

If you want high quality skincare that contains the latest advanced ingredients at an affordable price, you may tire yourself out looking for such a thing.  Fortunately, I found L’Oreal’s Skin Genesis line of products, the Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate in particular.  I discovered that this particular drugstore skincare product can compete with skincare products that cost many times more.

Not to name names, but… after trying an expensive hyaluronic acid product by Cellex-C (ie. Cellex-C Hydra 5B Complex) that costs $73 for a 30 ml bottle, I felt that I got similar skin benefits after using L’Oreal’s Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate, which also contains hyaluronic acid.

Out of all the Skin Genesis products, the Serum Concentrate is the best!  Comparing the ingredient lists of all the Skin Genesis products, I always find myself much more attracted to the ingredients in the Serum Concentrate product than in any other.  It is my daily go-to product, and I like it enough to bother stuffing it into a jam-packed 1 quart plastic bag and taking it with me on the plane when I travel.  The twist-lock pump packaging is an extra bonus, as it really helps keep the product sanitary and makes it really easy to use.

L’Oreal Skin Genesis Serum Concentrate is truly one of my all-time favorite products, and it usually retails for about $19.99 in drugstores.  Keep reading to find out how you can consistently get this product for much less.  › Continue reading
