Yearly Archives: 2009

Spring is the best time to whip out those bright colors that were kept hidden in the drawers after the long cold winter and turquoise is my all-time favorite. While turquoise looks best against darker skin tones and makes brown eyes pop, it will look good on lighter eyes and paler skin as well. Just make sure you pick one that has a metallic or satiny finish. Matte turquoise can look dated.


Thanks to the harsh Chicago winter weather and my sensitive dehydrated combo skin, I normally get tiny flakes around my nose and cheeks during this time of the year but ever since I started using Bliss Peeling Groovy Facial Serum ($65), my evil flakes have never returned!

The Peeling Groovy Facial Serum is a revamped version of Bliss’s famous Sleeping Peel Serum. It is a clear, oil-free, non-irritating exfoliating serum that works on smoothing fine lines, minimizing pores, correcting uneven skin texture and brightening skin discolorations.
