Futuristic Beauty! 3 Picks for Hi-Tech Beauty Today
Hot new technology that leads to Gorgeousness!
I love Fall! New York Fashion Week, the Emmys and all our favorite beauty and fashion mags that weigh a ton are chock-full of the new, the different and … reasons to shop! Not that that we need a reason to shop but I’m just saying! Of course my beauty bible Allure has a special issue showing the products and how to’s we need for every occasion in our lives. Linda Wells, Editor and Chief, has outdone herself with her October issue!
I’m always on the hunt to give you the future before it arrives and I’ve found a few “believe it or not” products that take beauty to the next level. I expect the next 10 years to give us “Jetson” -like products that we can use to literally transform ourselves in better and easier ways, with results.
AGE SPOTS / SKIN LIGHTENING
Elure Advanced Skin Lightening Line: Containing a mushroom-derived enzyme originally used to whiten paper in the ‘80s, Elure is now an incredible non irritating way to erase dark spots and even skin tone in seven days! This substance called Melanozyme can destroy melanin that accumulates on the surface! Elure’s day and night creams begin breaking melanin down into small colorless molecules that are whisked away with natural exfoliation!
INSTANT WHITENING TOOTHPASTE
Luster Now: Love this! Luster offers instant gratification for those of us needing immediate brightening. When you brush with this magic elixir, their adhesive polymers called Bluverite form a temporary bond on the surface of your teeth, canceling out any yellow staining. Lasts for about five hours! I will have two! Home and purse for emergency brightening!
Cry Baby: Chemists at Cry Baby took flexible-polymer chemistry (like that used in bonding hair extensions) and developed a semi-permanent mascara that curls, lengthens and thickens lashes that don’t smudge for weeks! The professionally-applied polymers create a strong, flexible coating that doesn’t budge. Definitely first on my shopping list!
The future is here! A more radiant, even complexion, with instantly whiter teeth and and long lasting lashes to die for! Check them out and let me know what you think!
Now if we could have some futuristic way to get the men in our lives to not leave their clothes on the floor at the end of the day. I guess the more things change the more they stay the same.
Here’s to the future girls!!
