Whether you’re a snowbird or a snow bunny, there’s no reason you can’t safely sport a sunny glow wherever your travels take you. As a practicing dermatologist, I advocate daily use of sunscreen, but I also believe in regular topical application of vitamin D. Combining vitamin D that with encapsulated DHA lets my Alpha Beta Glow products help get you radically radiant! Try Alpha Beta Glow Pads for Face to get a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow any season, and to also help give you the appearance of firmer, smoother skin, the look of smaller pores, and the appearance of reduced...

I just had a really bad reality check. I looked in the mirror and I was scared! My skin is NOT happy! It looks dry and dull. I’ve noticed that the dryness really emphasizes the wrinkles around my eyes.
Ok, so I’ve been a little busy and haven’t taken as good care of my skin this winter season as I should!

There are certain cultural occasions which get people talking everywhere about the same thing. Oscar night is one of those occasions. This week, all eyes are on Hollywood, and the big movie awards show.
Las Vegas is laying odds on which films and actors will win; style experts are discussing who will be wearing what; restaurants are featuring movie-themed menus with dishes based on the best picture nominees, and lots of people are rushing to theaters to see the contenders on the big screen before it’s too late.
All this talk about movies got me thinking -- who would play “the lad... Continue Reading

Hello, dear QVC friends:
It’s finally February, which is always one of my favorite months. Hel-lo! Valentine’s Day is all about love, so naturally, I look forward to it in a big way. Plus, February means spring is almost here. In northern California where I grew up and still spend lots of time, the bulbs start poking up through the soil as if they can’t wait for spring either.
This February is especially sweet for me. It’s our first Valentine’s Day with Indi Joon, who is the very definition of love. Josie Maran Cosmetics is having a great year, so we’re ce... Continue Reading

This month I spent two weeks in China (you can read about it in last week's blog). The air there was so dry! In fact, "so dry" is a gross understatement! By the second day, I was worried there were bedbugs in the hotel because I was itching so much. I know that sounds gross, but I was starting to freak out. Turns out, it wasn't pests - it was the extremely arid air. Suddenly, I understood why so many people at work in Beijing had humidifiers on their desks. Fortunately, I had packed my WEN oils. I'm a huge fan of Tea Tree Eucalyptus oil on my head because it almost immediately takes care... Continue Reading

OK, gals, here's the deal. A good time to pamper aging skin is at night because ingredients can really go to work when they don’t have to compete with sunlight, environment aggressors, and layers and layers of cosmetics.
