Set to hit stores on March 1st, the Max Huber Research Labs have created The Regenerating Serum, La Mer’s new anti-aging powerhouse. Four years and hundreds of hours of lab work in the making, this ultra-luxe elixir is the result of the combined effort of physicists, marine botanists and biologists around the world. Not only does it contain a high concentration of La Mer’s proprietary Miracle Broth™, but it also includes the new Regenerating Ferment™, derived from marine plant stem cells.
The Regenerating Ferment™ helps skin trigger its natural production of collagen, elastin and other “youth proteins,” harnessing the power of the skin’s ability to renew its appearance. In a day, skin looks rejuvenated. With continued use, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores is radically diminished for a seemingly ageless look. And this multi-action serum accomplishes all of these feats with a lightweight suspension formula that’s friendly to all skin types.
THINK: The new neutrals . . . deep, smoky nail shades inspired by modern runway designs.
WHAT IT IS: A fashionable collaboration between nail color expert Sally Hansen and designer Tracy Reese. For the ninth season in a row, Sally Hansen has joined forces with fashion icon Tracy Reese to develop the season’s essential accessory: stark nail lacquers inspired by Reese’s fall collection.
For as long as I can remember, I have been using Aquaphor every evening for my chapped lips. My mom used to get boxes of this stuff for her patients and I would always borrow some to moisturize my lips. Lucky Magazine took a poll a few months back asking what were reader's favorite lip treatment and this miracle ointment was named over and over again.
Grab a slightly damp washcloth and rub it in a circular motion on dry lips to exfoliate. When done, slather on some Aquaphor and the next morning you will be ready to go. Try it....you'll like it!

Let me know about it? Ok I could have worded that in a completely different way...LOL. Anyway, winter skin itch has got to be theee worst!
