Leg Trends Today: Sheer Delight

(NAPSI)—Fashion trends today lean toward clean-cut classics and feminine dressing. Highlights include short, chic suits, uncomplicated dresses and minimalistic skirts. Transparent pieces and layers of lace create a play on sheer and opaque and evoke an era of romanticism.

With Duchess Kate and her sister providing royal support, the sheer leg continues to make an appearance in the U.S., especially among younger women. From runway to reality, cosmetic skin tones give a barely there tint to the leg and add a modern, polished touch to any outfit. Ultrafeminine thigh highs complement the season’s newest soft and sophisticated styles, while new toeless designs show off a colorful pedicure in open-toe shoes. These new sheer styles offer women a flawless finish and a hint of color.

Pinstripe and graphic nets, along with scrolled floral patterns, can dress up or play down the leg to accommodate any style. Check out lines such as Hanes Hosiery, which offer a leg up on the season’s latest legwear trends. The expanded Hanes Silk Reflections Ultra Sheer collection includes a thigh high and toeless design, each with run-resist technology. This innovation unites beauty and function and prevents embarrassing runs.

Combine these new legwear styles with the season’s latest fashions and you can be ready to work, party and play.

Faces Get The Goat

(NAPSI)—Back when Cleopatra bathed in fresh goat’s milk, all skin care treatments were all-natural. Now, you can get the same moisturizing ingredients in an all-natural, fragrance-free skin care line.

The fresh goat’s milk products use organic ingredients to promote smooth, healthy complexions. More than just beauty creams and lotions, each hypoallergenic formula relies on vitamins, minerals and proteins, plus the unique properties of exotic botanicals with proven hydrating capabilities, to help keep skin happy and healthy.

Fresh goat’s milk contains capric and caprylic acids to help maintain an alkalinity level close to that of human skin. This keeps skin from being “stripped” of its natural moisture and protective properties-a common problem with regular commercial soaps.

Clinically proven to hydrate, the Nature by Canus line includes a Moisturizing Clay Mask, Facial Scrub, Night Renewal Facial Cream, Moisturizing Facial Cleansing Milk, Eye Cream and Daily Facial Cream, all made with farm-fresh goat’s milk. They’re dermatologist tested and have no parabens, phosphates or phthalates.

Improving Skin's Clarity

(NAPSI)—If your skin tone has become uneven, appears discolored or is less than luminous, it may be time to consider skin care designed to improve clarity.

Sun exposure can cause your body to produce too much melanin, a pigment that results in an uneven skin tone, and the spots often associated with aging. Changes in skin tone can also be the result of hormonal changes, acne scarring or pregnancy.

A new solution from the skin care company Kiehl’s Since 1851 uses Activated C, the latest-generation vitamin C derivative, that’s highly stable and 100 percent active, to break up and inhibit the formation of melanin clusters for long-term results. Kiehl’s is the first skin care company to bring Activated C to the U.S. market.

The product, Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, is clinically proven to promote youthful clarity while addressing the appearance of dark spots, discolorations, acne scarring and uneven skin tone.

The fast-acting serum penetrates deeply to address deep-set dark spots, and uses anti-cluster technology to break apart discolorations and prevent the formation of new pigment clusters.

Formulated with white birch and peony extracts, the results of this potent combination are clear: fast correction year-round, for visibly more uniform skin tone, overall clarity and youthful appearance.

When It Comes To Anti-Aging Skin Care, Don’t Forget The Body

(NAPSI)—While most anti-aging efforts focus on putting your best face forward, there’s no reason to forget the rest of your skin. Your face is not the only part of your body that exhibits signs of aging.

Fortunately, nourishing and replenishing the skin on your body can help fight the effects of aging and result in a smoother, slimmer and more toned appearance.

Skin Care On Several Fronts

“The skin on the body changes as we age. It loses structural proteins, contributing to a loss of smoothness and firmness. Additionally, circulation becomes hampered and skin lacks its youthful moisture content with age,” said Helen Knaggs, Ph.D., Vice President of Global Research and Development for Nu Skin. “This all leads to the skin on the body sagging and looking old, which is a real aging concern for all people.” Lifestyle changes can help fight the signs of aging.

While topical treatments are also essential, how you deliver topical ingredients to the skin matters. That’s where the latest technology can really be helpful-by delivering anti-aging nutrients where they are most needed.

Take Advantage of Technology

New developments in technology, such as the ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa, can improve healthy skin in a highly effective way by assisting with ingredient delivery to the skin.

The latest spa instrument, created by Nu Skin, uses unique pulsating galvanic technology to apply ageLOC Body Shaping Gel, a cosmetic gel that works with the spa. The pulsating galvanic current maximizes the anti-aging effects of the product on the arms, abdomen, buttocks and thighs, by purifying, refreshing and smoothing skin to provide a slimmer, more toned appearance. “In less than four weeks you can already see the difference, you can really see how much tighter my skin appears,” said Ann Houghteling, a Nu Skin distributor and participant in the Nu Skin’s ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa clinical trials. ageLOC technology helps to positively influence the appearance of the skin on the body to look slimmer, smoother and firmer.

With a self-adjusting current, lighted display, and audio indications, it’s easy to use at home.

Firmer Skin

The ageLOC Galvanic Body Spa is paired with ageLOC Body Shaping Gel that improves the appearance of skin’s firmness. The complementary daily follow-up topical, ageLOC Dermatic Effects Body Countouring Lotion, contains ingredients that help inhibit fat production, stimulate fat breakdown and reduce the appearance of fat and cellulite while smoothing and moisturizing the skin, helping take years off of skin’s appearance.

Newfound Age Fighter

(NAPSI)—Biotechnology scientists were working with microalgae to develop renewable energy solutions when they made an unexpected discovery: Alguronic Acid, a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting a particular microalgae cell.

What It Can Do For You

When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties: increasing cellular regeneration and boosting elastin synthesis. Microalgae may not only change the future of clean energy, but the face of anti-aging skin care as well.

Where To Find It

Today, this breakthrough ingredient is available in a new skin care collection that offers rejuvenated, younger-looking skin at any age. The Alguronic Acid is combined with an active protein and peptide complex in Algenist Skincare’s new Firming & Lifting line.

Living Beautifully Every Day

(NAPSI)—Just as diamonds are a girl’s best friend and the perfect designer bag can be worth a splurge, shapewear can be a secret weapon for looking slimmer and feeling more confident during special occasions, according to a recent survey.

The survey, conducted by Bali® Intimate Apparel and LYCRA® beauty fabric, found that women identified comfort, how much better shapewear makes them look, and fabric lightness or thinness as the most important factors when purchasing shapewear.

From whittling the waist and flattening the tummy to slimming the thighs and smoothing out lumps and bumps, celebrity stylist Jennifer Rade knows a few things about looking and feeling your best. Her client list is a who’s who of the music, film and television industry, including musicians Lady Antebellum. She believes it begins with the right foundation.

“Don’t wear shapewear that’s too small because you think it ‘holds you in’ better. That theory will only make you uncomfortable,” says Rade. “Accept the reality of your figure. Love it.” Finding shapewear that makes you look sleek, held in and smoothed out can be easier with these five tips from Rade:

• First, what needs work? Identify the area you want help shaping. Most women identified the stomach, followed by thighs, hips and derriere, as the problem areas. Identifying specific areas can help you narrow down your search for the right shapewear pieces.

• Second, know that it doesn’t have to hurt. A recent survey found that 35 percent of women avoid shapewear because they believe it’s uncomfortable. Shapewear made with LYCRA, however, moves with you. Options include light control, moderate control or firm control.

• Third, you’re probably wearing the wrong size. Looking 10 pounds smaller doesn’t mean you have to wear shapewear that’s too small. Proper-fitting shapewear is more effective. To find your size, start with your current dress or dress pant size and this conversion: 4−6 = Small, 8−10 = Medium, 12−14 = Large, 16−18 = XLarge, 20−22 = 2XLarge.

• Fourth, update your lingerie drawer. For each pair of shoes you have, you should have one shapewear piece. Having shapewear for all style occasions-a little black dress, cigarette-style trousers, billowy blouses-ensures an effortless, slimming and elegant look no matter what you’re wearing.

• Fifth, believe it. Feel beautiful. Shapewear can give you great comfort and fit and help you look and feel elegant and confident. For more ideas on how to live beautifully daily and get tips and advice from Rade, visit
