I recently had the pleasure of speaking with beauty expert, Nicole Pearl of TheBeautyGirl.com to discuss simple ways we can improve our self image from both the inside out and outside in!
The Beauty Girl, Nicole Pearl
Candace Rose: What can we do to look and feel our best from the inside out?
Nicole Pearl: “My number one beauty tip is being healthy because when you feel good, you look good. You want to drink plenty of water, get lots of rest, make smart nutritional choices and take a daily multivitamin. I like Centrum multivitamins because it offers men and women specifically formulated amounts of vitamins and minerals, and the women’s formula helps support breast health and bone strength as well as immune function; and it’s also got key nutrients to really help you maintain healthy skin, hair and nails.”

CR: What are the musts this summer for taking care of ourselves from the outside in?
NP: “For the outside, you cannot neglect your skin, it’s so important. There’s a great new line from Roc, you might know this brand as being a leader in the anti-aging category, it’s called the ‘multi correxion’ and it has a multitude of benefits – from fighting fine lines and wrinkles to dark circles and puffiness and it also has products that target sagging skin. My favorite from the line is the multi correction lift anti-gravity day moisturizer with SPF 30 and that is because, yes it lifts and firms the skin but it also gives you SPF 30, you’re protected from harmful UV rays.”

CR: How about when it comes to beauty and hair?
NP: “Another thing that’s so important is about maintaining a healthy looking hair color during the summer, especially with the challenges of sun and chlorine. In fact Clairol recently did a survey and they found that women’s mood increased when they had freshly colored hair. A very easy way to do at home hair color is with Clairol Natural Instincts and I say this because all you do is apply it, let it process got about 10 minutes and then rinse it out and they have options. For example you can do demi-permanent shades that last for up to 28 shampoos or you can go for a more permanent palette that lasts up to 6-8 weeks; that offers 100% gray coverage and it can lighten your hair by two shades. The nice thing about both of these is that they come with this week two color refresher, so 15 days after applying the initial hair color, you apply the week two color refresher; you let it sit for about five minutes, rinse it out and it replenishes the tones in your hair color.”

CR: Do you have any additional information you’d like to share?
NP: “Well, I definitely want to talk about makeup for the summer; it’s a big trend we’re seeing a lot of brights, bolds being a huge trend. We’re seeing it in fashion and beauty, so I would advise for you to play a little bit, go for some brights. I would just say to only apply the bold shades on your eyes or your lips – just play up one feature at a time.”
CR: Where can we go for more information?
NP: “You can go to LifeMinute.TV.”
