Iâ€™m always in awe of how French women have a certain je na sais quoi when it comes to their beauty routines. They just get it right with their radiant skin, natural-looking makeup, and undone hair.
Itâ€™s only fitting that SOTHYS Paris, which has been creating innovative skin care and professional treatments for over 60 years, has launched a new makeup collection. The line was created with the effortless Parisienne woman in mind and includes SOTHYS renowned anti-aging ingredients and luxe formulas. â€œBased on our knowledge of the spa market, we have created a well-edited collection that makes it easy for spas to offer the makeup items that women most often request.Â
I love coming across a brand that works really hard to deliver the most potent anti-aging ingredients while also keeping it effective for those with sensitive skin. Radical Skincare does just that. Founded in 2011 by Rachel and Liz Edlich, who have worked for over 20 years in the beauty industry creating skin care lines for celebrities and companies, Radical came about when these sisters started playing with formulas to tackle their own skin care woes and saw unbeatable results.
All of the seven core products (ranging from $49 to $190) are infused with the highest level of active ingredients and antioxidants such as green tea, acai, pomegranate, red wine extract, and coffeeberry.Â Ra
It’s spring, at last, and time when young women’s minds turn to thoughts of renewed beauty. Personally, I gravitate towards the latest scientific-ingredient potions, but lately Iâ€™ve been giving all-natural skincare products a whirl. These luxurious all-natural formulas contain high-performance ingredients sourced from sustainable farms around the globe to smooth, brighten, restore, and battle the signs of aging, while also keeping the body and skin healthy. The brands below are free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and synthetic ingredients, and after trying some of them I may just abandon a few of my high-tech formulas and think you will, too.

When I was asked to try out Diorâ€™s new anti-aging skin perfector, Dreamskin, I jumped at the thought of trying it.Â After all, the name promises â€œdreamyâ€ skin, and it tackles a variety of skin problems for all ages and skin types.
Dior Dreamskin, which just hit department stores this month, is part of the brandâ€™s Capture Totale line of skincare and makeup products. Priced at $110, the weightless serum hybrid promises to work on the surface of the skin as well as below to fight the signs of aging, boost radiance, and correct dark spots, redness, and large pores.
