Blustery winds and icy temperatures are an unavoidable aspect of winter in Boston. As beautiful as the first white snows are, winter weather can wreak havoc on skin and hair. I’ve recently discovered that some of the best fixes are natural, and might even already be in your kitchen cabinets!
Everyone loves the beautiful look of a nice summer glow, but the rising health risks are making many turn away from once-popular tanning beds and beachside overexposure. In years past, the concept of spray tanning sounded good, but the result was too often an orange, splotchy hue that barely resembled the sun-kissed look that seems so natural. Now, with updated technology that has come to Femme Fatale Airbrush Tan in Boston, it’s possible to achieve a warmer, more blended look, without suffering all of the potential health hazards.
Wearing makeup is a time to express yourself and step outside the box. It is a new year so change up the routine and take a chance with exciting colors and styles. It does not have to be overly dramatic but with a few tips, anyone can achieve a nighttime, glam face. Grab your girls for an evening on the town along with your new look. You might even find some new found confidence.
To begin, clean, moisturized skin is a must. During the Winter months, skin becomes dry and irritated. Use a moisturizing mask like Clinique's Overnight Moisture Surge Mask to prep skin and remove impurities. Then, try a daily serum like Orlane's Absolute Skin Recovery to rejuvenate and penetrate deep into pores. Finish with a deep moisture cream like Bobbi Brown's Hydrating Face Cream.
Accessories can make an outfit, a statement. They can add so much style to a simple tee shirt. Boston has a huge variety of stores that can add that extra touch you're looking for. Whether a big, bold necklace or a wrist of arm candy, any accessory can add that special touch and show a little personality.
The concept of indoor cycling has taken on an intense new twist, with the nationwide Flywheel Sports opening its first Boston location at The Prudential Center. The spacious fitness studio, which is located on the Belvidere Arcade near the Huntington Avenue entrance, offers early morning, afternoon and evening cardio classes. Each rigorous session lasts between 45 and 60 minutes, with participants choosing their own intensity level.
It is true, brows really shape the face. They can transform your look. Right now, we are seeing fuller, more natural brows. The ultra thin, barely there style is a look of the past. Recovering from over plucking in high school can take time. We have all abused our brows at one point but there is help. With some patience, everyone can achieve those runway model brows.
Hats are a game changer. They create a certain mood; an attitude of sorts. Let's face it, in the winter months of New England weather, they keep us warm. There are endless types of hats and sometimes it can be hard to choose one for a certain occasion. Try to spruce up your wardrobe with a hat for casual and dressy times. Style can sometimes be all in the accessories.
There are many reasons to love the South End, from the ornate stoops to the incredible restaurant scene to the abundant dog parks.
