Spring is officially upon us and summer is less than 80 days away! As much as we look forward to warmer temps and not having to wear layers upon layers of clothes, the harsh sun can wreak havoc on our skin. Many of us are plagued with skin issues, especially once the weather gets warmer and we don’t switch up our beauty routine. Do you suffer from excess body hair or does the hair on your legs drive you crazy and you’re tired of shaving them on a routine basis? If you’re working on getting your body in shape for bikini season and interested in how you can improve your skin, get rid of excess hair at the same time, you’re in luck! Beauty expert, Grace Gold joined me this morning for an interview to dish on the three must have beauty products to ensure your skin looks amazing this summer!
Candace Rose: What’s the secret to looking our best this summer?
Grace Gold: “It’s really all about confidence, so I have some great solutions to help you feel more confident about showing your skin with the hot summer weather.
First of all, hair removal is a huge issue for so many of us, especially us ladies. This is a new device (please see video above for details) it’s the Silk’n Flash and Go. It’s light based technology that gives you permanent hair removal results within the privacy of your own home, which is incredible. It comes with 5,000 flashes, so you can use it on several parts of your body. If you have a lot of hair, you can upgrade to a lifetime cartridge, and that’s 120,000 flashes. You can basically use that forever.
Also, wanted to share a little personal story- I went to the dermatologist, got my lower legs done for $1500. I tried this machine (it’s $199.00) on my arms and was super impressed with the results.”
Candace Rose: Is it painful?
Grace Gold: “It’s not. It can be a feeling of warmth. There’s three settings, so the lower one feels warm. I use the highest setting, and that’s like a rubber band hitting your skin. But I actually think waxing is worse.”
Candace Rose: How can we keep a healthy youthful glow?
Grace Gold: “Well, the glow that we all want during the summer, it really comes from within, so you’ve got to take care of yourself and a great new way to do it is ASEA. It’s a liquid dietary supplement and it uses something called Redox Signaling Molecules. I know that sounds space aged, what they do is they help cells communicate with each other better. We have a lot of them naturally when we’re younger, we lose them as we get older and so this is the first supplement of its kind to have this technology. So what happens when you have that? Well, you feel better, your immunity is boosted, but you also see it on the outside. You see a glow to your skin because the cells are turning over faster, your hair is fuller because again, there are those nutrients. You’re not drinking the whole bottle, by the way. You’re drinking about two to four ounces everyday, so it’s like a quick little shot you can do. It’s a simple way to have a healthy habit that makes you look and feel good this summer.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any advice when it comes to skincare?
Grace Gold: “Yes, definitely. We want to lay off the makeup in the summer. First of all, it doesn’t feel fun to have layers of makeup covering your skin, but it can also make you break out if you’re wearing a lot of it and it’s humid. There’s this great new line that you can take a look at, it’s called MD Complete and it’s created by a dermatologist, Dr. Brian Zelickson. It has an incredible delivery system, so you’re getting the best anti aging ingredients. Those today, are your retinols, your peptides and your antioxidants. My favorite product here is the Advanced Wrinkle Remover, so if wrinkles really have you down this is your product. This will help improve wrinkles and also brighten your skin. The Sun Shield SPF 50 is great to wear all year round, but especially during the summertime. And even though this is a dermatologist premium line, it’s at a bargain price which is just amazing. $16 – $39 for each of these products.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share?
Grace Gold: “Well, a lot of us are feeling pale right now this time of year, and to help give you a little confidence there, you can look for a gradual glow product in the drugstore – that’s what they’re called and different options you can choose from. What that does is combine body lotion with a little bit of self tanner – completely natural looking, you apply it everyday like body lotion. It gives you a little coverage and that really helps with things like cellulite, pigmentation spots, stretch marks and that helps you feel a little bit more confident finally getting into that swimsuit this summer.”
Candace Rose: Absolutely! Where can we go for more information?
Grace Gold: “You can go to GraceGold.com to find out about any of these products and where you can purchase it local to you.”
