Kiehl’s LifeRide for amFAR and Limited Edition Lifestyle Essentials Kit.

On Friday, July 13, Kiehl’s Since 1851 embarked on the third annual Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR. The benefit motorcycle ride takes place over 10 days, July 13-July 22, from Miami to Washington, D.C., and I hoped you’d be interesting in sharing this project, as there are a number of opportunities for your readers to get involved, whether they join us along the ride, or support our riders and amfAR via Facebook and Twitter.

Now in its third year, Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR is a multi-day, multi-stop motorcycle ride to raise funds and awareness for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. Taking place this year from July 13-July 22, over 1,800 miles, and with 8 public celebration stops along the way, the ride is expected to raise $115,000 via events, social media, and the sale of a Limited Edition Active Lifestyle Essentials kit, from which 100% of the proceeds will benefit amfAR.

There are a number of new elements in this year’s ride that that will make our third annual ride all the more poignant:

We’re riding in July 2012, which has been established as National HIV Awareness Month (NHAM) to elevate the discourse on the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic.

As part of the ride, Kiehl’s will be bringing with us a panel created for Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR, which we will deliver to the quilt, on The Mall in Washington, D.C. The panel will be on display at each of our ride stops, for our guests to sign, to leave their own message on the quilt and be part of the cause.

Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA leads the ride with Kevin Robert Frost, CEO of amfAR, and will be joined by notable motorcycle enthusiasts eager to join the fight against HIV/AIDS, including actors John Corbett, Tricia Helfer, Katee Sackhoff, Tyson Beckford, Teddy Sears, Christopher Redman, Marguerite Moreau and Grant Reynolds; photographer Timothy White, custom motorcycle builder Paul Cox, and artist Conrad Leach—more riders will continue to confirm right up until the days before.

Here are some of the stand-out points of the ride:

We have an incredible group of riders this year, and many of them are joining us for the second and third times on the road. John Corbett and Jesse Metcalfe are joining us for the first time this year, and returning riders include Tricia Helfer, Katee Sackhoff, Tyson Beckford, Teddy Sears, Christopher Redman, Marguerite Moreau and Grant Reynolds; tattoo artist Ami James, photographer Timothy White, custom motorcycle builder Paul Cox, and artist Conrad Leach.

The 2012 Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR rides with the support of EagleRider Motorcycles, the world’s largest motorcycle rental and travel touring company. EagleRider is providing the motorcycles and equipment, as well as a traveling support crew to ensure the safety of all riders.

NEW from Frédéric Malle!

Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle makes its first foray into the hair category with the introduction of a hair mist in one of the brand’s most popular fragrances: Carnal Flower.

Lighter than the Carnal Flower fragrance, thus particularly suited as an alternative, Brume Pour Cheveux also contains an ingredient which protects hair from drying.

Malle worked with perfumer Dominique Ropion to produce Carnal Flower in 2005, thus creating a unique fragrance for women who seek ultimate lavishness that is today seen as a landmark in perfumery. Developed using watery green notes with spicy Eucalyptus and Tuberose Absolute, Carnal Flower is Ropion’s interpretation of an “olfactory Himalaya.”

Fragrance Notes: Bergamot, Melon, Eucalyptus, Ylang Ylang, Salicylates, Jasmine, Tuberose Absolute; Orange Blossom Absolute, Coconut, White Musk Cocktail

How to use: spritz hair twice (three times at most)

Dr Perricone Discusses: Fighting Cellulite


Dr. Perricone Discusses: Fighting Cellulite

Aging does not just take place on the face. As we age, we commonly see changes in the body that include the loss of muscle tone in conjunction with the addition of body fat, particularly in the abdominal area, and on the legs and arms. This excess body fat is directly attributable to two factors. The first is the loss of insulin sensitivity, the second the elevation of cortisol (the death hormone) levels in conjunction with a decrease in the life or youth hormones such as testosterone, estrogen and human growth hormone.

This combination of loss of muscle tone and increased body fat results in a condition commonly known as cellulite — the dimpled appearance of skin caused by fat deposits just below the surface of the skin.

Combat Cellulite by Changing Your Diet
While cellulite is not entirely ‘curable’, there are several dietary changes that can minimize and improve the appearance of cellulite.

1. Make anti-inflammatory foods the basis of your daily diet. This will ensure low body fat, maintenance of muscle mass and radiant skin, and will help you avoid swings in blood sugar, which can cause the storage of fat and a breakdown of muscle tissue.

2. Drink plenty of pure, non-carbonated spring water throughout the day (6 to 8 glasses) with a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Lemon is rich in bioflavonoids and vitamin C (anti-inflammatory antioxidants), and acts as a natural diuretic to help the body shed excess water.

3. Eat plenty of detoxifying fruit and vegetables. Lemons, asparagus, cranberries, fennel, celery, dandelion and ginger root are natural detoxifying agents, and many experts believe detoxifying the body helps eliminate the lumpy and bumpy appearance of cellulite. These fruits and vegetables also act as natural diuretics to help eliminate excess water build up.

4. Eat a diet rich in lignans, which will help lower estrogen levels. Estrogen can contribute to cellulite as it activates the production of fat cells and encourages fluid retention. Foods rich in lignans include chia seeds and sesame seeds.
