Candace Rose: With the holidays upon us, do you have any easy beauty tips to help us look our best?
Lilliana Vazquez: "I do. You know one really easy tip is to remember to stay moisturized. You know when you're taking a shower, turn the temperature down a little bit and also make sure you're using moisturizer right after you get out of the shower, both on your face and body because good skin is the foundation to great beauty."
Candace Rose: What can we do to glam up our look?
Lilliana Vazquez: "Well, and easy way to glam up any look is with jewelry. And I love Pandora, you know that their entire collection really inspires women to celebrate unforgettable moments throughout the year, and of course the holidays. And the collection is all hand-finished and prices start at just $25, so it really is a great gift for any stylish woman on your gift list."
Candace Rose: You know the holidays can extremely hectic, what can we do to take time out for ourselves?
Lilliana Vazquez: "You know one way to take time for yourself is a lot of people complain during the holidays, they might indulge a little much. So you tend to have problem areas like your love handles, so I recommend coolsculpting and what this is it's a non-invasive FDA cleared procedure that actually freezes fat without any damage to your skin. There's no needles involved, no lasers and after just one visit you'll see a 20-24% reduction in fat. And this is something that you can do even if you're really busy because it literally takes less than an hour and you can go to your dermatologist during your lunch hour, when you walk out your clothes are going to feel better, they're going to fit better and you're going to look incredible. You're definitely going to be holiday ready."
Candace Rose: And how about if you're on the go or at a holiday party, what can you do to glam it up?
Lilliana Vazquez: "Well, when you're on the go, you know before you head out, you know there's going to be a lot of picture taking happening at these events, so you want to make sure that there's no unwanted facial hair going on, so the product that I recommend for that is actually from Nair. It's their Precision Face & Upper Lip kit and it's a great way to remove unwanted hair anywhere on your face. It's effective, lasts a really long time and what I love is that it's easy on your wallet. You don't have to go to a spa or a salon to take care of hair removal, you can do it at home with Nair.
And another on the go tip is a lot of us love fragrance, I know for me, I probably have 20 bottles of perfume sitting on my counter and the problem is you can't really carry them with you in your bag, it's not that practical so Travalo actually makes a product, it's a refillable atomizer. What you can do is you can transfer your favorite perfume to their atomizer and then just throw that in your clutch. It's really small, it's compact. It's a great way to take your fragrance on the go and it's also a great gift too- it's only about $16."
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you'd like to share this morning?
Lilliana Vazquez: "Yeah, for more information on all the fabulous products I just mentioned you can actually go to News2Know.com and also remember that the holidays are a time to have fun with your friends and your family and while it might be stressful, remember the point is to have fun and enjoy. So have a great time celebrating the season."
