Candace Rose: What can we do to look and feel great this winter?

Laura Kenney: "The most important thing you can start with is your skin. You really want to get to the root of the problems in your skin versus just dealing with the visible problems, so DDF- a really innovative skincare line has a great new tool that can help you do that. The tool is available and you can have someone do it on you at Sephora stores. They're doing live events across the nation and you can check out DDF's facebook page to find an event near you. So what this tool does is you actually hold it up to your skin; it takes pictures, it can assess your pores, it can assess your wrinkle depth, it can assess your clarity. It can even look at your sensitivity and it will give you the perfect regimen for your skin which is great because I think so many of us just guess when we walk into a store. We grab the hottest new product but we don't really know if it's going to work for us so this is a great way to make sure that you're getting the most bang for your buck when it comes to skincare."

Candace Rose: What are the latest trends in makeup?

Laura Kenney: "Latest trends in makeup- we're seeing a lot of cool science in makeup, so Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker blush actually brings in, it looks at the ambient light around you and then it looks at basically the PH of your skin, puts those together and comes out with the perfect color for you. You can use it to contour, you can use it to highlight. It works in 60 seconds and it lasts for 14 hours, so it's really long lasting. They also have a bronzer and a lip gloss that works with the same technology.

    And a great thing to layer this blush on top of is actually oil. It's something that I love using on your skin for winter. It makes the skin look really supple and gorgeous. This is a cult favorite from Bio-Oil. YOu can can get it at your local drugstores, it's only $12 and it contains a secret ingredient called PurCellin Oil that really allows the vitamins and the botanical extracts to seep into your skin and just leave you looking gorgeous. It's also a multitasker. You can use it on everything from stretch marks to you know, even out your skin tone to tame flyaways in your hair, so it's just something that every woman needs in the summer."

Candace Rose: Is it safe for all skin types?

Laura Kenney: "Yes, it's safe for all skin types. It's safe to use basically anywhere on your body. It's an all purpose product. Oils are very gently by nature so anyone can use them.

    And also another great product that we all need is RapidLash. We all want gorgeous, beautiful lashes any time of year and this can help you get there. It's a lash enhancing serum that really increases the fullness of your lashes and it can also make them look shinier and really just healthy. So what you do is you put it on your lashline every night; in 30 days you'll see results. And it's also something that you can multitask and you can use it on your brows too to fill in any sparseness there, so it's another product that every woman should have."

Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you'd like to share?

Laura Kenney: "Sure, I mean all these products you can get at drugstores which is really great, except go to Sephora for the DDF one. And I think just my overall tip for everyone every time of year is wear sunscreen, it's the most important thing you can do to fight aging and keep your skin in great shape.
