In early 2013, I was approached by our behind-the-scenes team with an idea for a “Beauty Show” as a lead in for AM Style. The thinking was, since Saturday mornings were already a popular time for fashion fun, why not add beauty to the mix? It sounded great, except for one thing -- I was ... Continue Reading

When I turned 30, I began to struggle with my skin. Part of the issue was pregnancy hormones, but I was also experiencing skin challenges as a result of testing too many products.
When I first saw a geisha’s flawless complexion, I wondered aloud what her secret was. The geisha confided that their ritual is simple, straightforward, and founded on one vital concept, purification, which they discovered by chance. For centuries, geisha have relied on light camellia oil to melt away debris and wash away their famous makeup. The beloved oil is rich in oleic acid and serves as a ... Continue Reading

An ideal skin-care regimen, such as my Power of Perricone 5-Piece Kit, incorporates a variety of essential antiaging ingredients to address the appearance of skin. I highly recommend treatments formulated with my powerful Cold Plasma delivery system, such as Cold Plasma Eye and Photo Plasma, which deliver benefits to the skin. The introduction of neuropeptides over 10 years ago revolutionized the beauty industry. My Neuropeptide Facial Cream and Neuropeptide Necolletage contain neuropeptides that address accelerated skin-aging concerns, restoring the appearance of firmness and suppleness... Continue Reading
