This remarkable face cream with Hypsizygus ulmarius and Chaga mushrooms immediately helps quiet and calm skin.  By mirroring the amazing process that sends Narcissus Lily Bulbs into dormancy as a means of “self-protection”, it signals skin to conserve its energy to optimize its defenses against age accelerators. Skin has the ability to maintain a stronger, healthier, more youthful appearance.

This patented technology is further supported by Menyanthus and Heather extracts to keep skin firm; Fucoidan from Okinawan seaweed to discourage moisture loss and Vitamins C and E to defend against destructive oxidation.

Andrew Weil, M.D., donates all of his after-tax profits from royalties from sales of Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ products directly to the Weil Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting integrative medicine through training, education and research.

Filing your nails regularly will keep them smooth and shaped. It’s the first step in a good manicure.
Nearly everyone thinks that they know how to file their nails, but there is only one right way.

The wrong ways can damage your nails and make them weaker. Here’s how to do it properly.

Things You’ll Need:
-Emery board
-Nail buffer 
-Nail clippers or nail scissors

1-Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
2- Lay a towel on the table to collect any nail dust or clippings. 
3- Clip your nails if you intend to take off a lot of length. Clip straight across the tip of the nail, leaving a square edge. Be sure to leave enough length for shaping with an emery board. 
4- Hold the emery board at a slight angle at one corner of your nail. Lightly stroke it from the corner to the center of your nail. Repeat several times, keeping the pressure light. 
5- Hold the emery board at a slight angle at the opposite corner and repeat, stroking from the corner toward the center of your nail. 
6-Repeat with each nail. 
7- Buff your nails if desired with a nail buffer to make them shine. 
8-Gather up the towel and shake out the nail dust and nail clippings into the trash. 
9- Wash and moisturize your hands.

Guerlain’s creative director Olivier Échaudemaison developed Rouge G de Guerlain ($45) to capture the quintessence of luxury in an object dedicated to the lips.

To achieve this vision, Guerlain turned to Place Vendôme jewelry designer Lorenz Bäumer who drew inspiration from a bar of gold, but placed the lipstick horizontally and added feminine curves.

Carrying through the vision for elegance, he created a magnetic mechanism to reproduce the air-releasing effect of an antique powder case.

Click, and the white-gold coated case reveals a mirror and a lipstick nestled within. More like a chic accessory, Rouge G unites the qualities of a powder case, a jewel and a precious lipstick. Available in 25 shades at fine department stores.

BOTOX® Cosmetic provides a quick and effective remedy for the facial lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry, and environmental factors can produce, even on a younger person’s face.

A BOTOX® injection skin treatment smoothes frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and at the base of the nose. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, derived from botulinum toxin, “crow’s feet” wrinkles at the corners of the eyes fade or disappear for a more youthful and vital facial appearance.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable agent used to temporarily diminish or eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face by relaxing underlying facial muscles. It is derived from botulinum toxin type A, a bacterium-produced neuromuscular toxin that can be deadly in a pure state. 

It contains a highly diluted form of the toxin and has been proven safe. For this reason, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved BOTOX® botulinum toxin treatment for alleviating eye-muscle disorders and smoothing frown lines.

This exceptional treatment is often used in conjunction with facial plastic surgery procedures such as a face lift or eyelid lift to maximize its cosmetic benefit.
