Posted by 07.26.16

Botox is the overachiever of injectables. Besides being used to treat wrinkles and frown lines, it can also be used on everything from migraines to gummy smiles to excessive sweating and more. In fact, one of its latest uses is treating those with a broad jawline who are seeking a slimmer one.

Beverly Hills-based Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nima Shemirani has been using Botox this way. He says, “The jawline is an important focal point that visually balances the face. A broad jawline may give the wrong impression of additional weight.” Apparently, if it is right for you, it’s an easy fix. But…is it right for you?

BITB asked, and Dr. Shemirani was more than happy to share his e

SHOULD YOU BE USING MICELLAR WATER?

Posted by 07.20.16

If you’ve noticed this strange sounding miracle ingredient popping up in many beauty products of late, there’s a good reason for it. Micellar water is an ideal way for those with normal to dry and/or sensitive skin to gently and effectively remove makeup, cleanse, refresh, protect and moisturize, all without stripping skin or leaving any oily residue behind.

These molecules are specifically attracted to dirt and oil, so they draw out impurities without stripping the skin of its own protective oils so it easily maintains its lipid barrier. You’ll love that there’s no harsh rubbing, scrubbing

FOR MORE THAN JUST SUNBURN: THE MAGIC OF ALOE

What do you think of when you hear the words Aloe Vera? I’m instantly transported back to my teen years when I’d visit my grandparents in Bal Harbour, Florida. My sister, brother and I spent almost every school holiday and summer break hanging out with all the other kids who were visiting their grandparents as well. We’d swim in the ocean and bake ourselves by the pool, obviously a very different time — we weren’t schooled to protect our skin as much as we now know we should. If we got sunburned — and we always did — we’d break open an aloe vera leaf and apply the cool, green gel that oozed out of it directly on the burn. Nothing felt better than that!

Aloe Vera has been used medicinal
