With the holiday season officially upon us, and holiday parties not too far on the horizon, beauty/fashion expert, and TV personality Lilliana Vazquez joined me to chat about not only the hottest trends this season, but tips on how to get your pearly whites in shape in little time, tips for staying fit and trim, how to get luminous skin and much more!
Candace Rose: What are the hottest holiday trends this season?
Lilliana Vazquez: “There’s a few. In the fashion space I think color is obviously really important this season and there’s two schools of thought here- one is jewel tones and the other is brights. Of course sparkly during the holidays is a go-to. And then of course there’s all those really fun and easy to incorporate beauty trends, which is really what I’m talking about today.”
Candace Rose: What are the hottest beauty looks this season?
Lilliana Vazquez: “Well, I think something really simple that people forget about is a smile. During the holidays there’s a lot of family get-togethers and there’s parties and events, and there’s a lot of photo opportunities, so you want to put your best smile forward. My favorite way for getting straighter teeth is with Invisalign. I love it because when you’re wearing it you can’t even see it, and for simple fixes, they now have an express option that’s not only really affordable, but it’s also really fast. It works in three months or less.”
Candace Rose: Many of us will be heading to parties over the holidays, what can we do to stay trim, even with all the indulgences?
Lilliana Vazquez: “Well, I think one thing to do is incorporate easy, simple activity into your regular routine. If you don’t go to the gym already, you’re probably not going to start going to the gym November and December just because you’re eating more. So it’s taking the stairs instead of taking the elevator, it’s parking far away from the mall entrance rather than close, and you’ll also save yourself time as well. So just walking and enjoying the weather. Yes, it’s crisp outside and cooler, but go for fun walks with your family. I think it’s just about being active in a way that really suits your lifestyle.”
Candace Rose: What can we do to stay fresh all day, even while holiday shopping?
Lilliana Vazquez: “Well, I think it’s important to have a deodorant that won’t let you down. Things are hectic, we’re busy, we’re running from place to place with little breaks, so you want a deodorant like the Degree Women Clinical Protection with Motion Sense. The reason I really like it is because it’s prescription strength. It provides three times the protection and it also works while you move thanks to the exclusive motion sense technology. You can learn more about that on the Degree Women Facebook page.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share?
Lilliana Vazquez: “Absolutely. Skincare is also really important this time of year, the weather is changing. So you want to start your skincare routine with a great cleanser. Ponds has a new line, it’s their Luminous Clean cleansers, and they’re great because they’re enriched with kaolin clay, so it helps draw out impurities in the skin, it reveals brighter more beautiful luminous skin. The exfoliating cleanser was the 2012 Allure Best of Beauty Awards- it won that this year. And you can learn more about Ponds on their Facebook page as well, and there’s some coupons there to actually try out the product.”
