Caffeine-infused tights that reduce cellulite while you wear them?

Look what I came across today! While surfing around, I saw an ad for Skin Kiss tights.  Apparently, they are tights that are impregnated with microcapsules of caffeine to break down cellulite. Women wear the tights daily for a three week period, and during that time, wearers have reported a 2cm reduction on each thigh, and their skin appeared smoother!

Speaking about the product, a spokesperson for the UK brand said: ‘The demand that we have seen for these tights is truly unprecedented.

‘The technology and clinical tests have shown positive results.’

But due to the ‘technical sophistication’ of the product, the spokesperson added that the tights – priced at  £25.48.for a pack of three – are ‘by no means cheap’.

These revolutionary tights use caffeine as an active ingredient, which is introduced into the fibre using micro capsules and the body temperature causes them to act on the skin. Wearing SKIN KISS on a daily basis for up to 28 days, it has been shown that the caffeine can reduce the thigh measurement by up to 2 cm and tightens the tissue of the legs in particular. Further results seen are smoother and suppler skin, improvement of the skin elasticity, visibly improved appearance of the skin and comfort.

Dermatological tested. The effect lasts up to 5 washes.

Emma Stone reveals her $5 beauty secret!

One thing is obvious about Emma Stone. Her porcelain skin is flawless. While most A-List celebrities turn to expensive treatments and products to have perfect skin, Emma takes a rather low-budget approach!

The 23-year-old actress has revealed that grapeseed oil is the key to her perfect skin!

The oil, which costs around $5 a bottle, is available at most stores. She claims that splashing it on her face several times a day leaves her skin soft and silky.

Almost odourless and light in texture the natural product is said to be easily absorbed by the skin and is commonly used as a massage oil.

The product is often made from wine grapes, since the seeds are discarded when alcohol is made.

She told Style.com: ‘I just use natural grapeseed oil from the grocery store on my face as moisturizer.

‘After the shower, I pat it on, and then I’ll use it throughout the day and at night.

‘I pretty much smell like grape all the time.’

She also uses Burt’s Bees Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum on her ultra-sensitive skin – which she claims is allergic to ‘everything’.

The actress has had a busy year, scoring critically acclaimed hits in comedy Crazy Stupid Love and drama The Help.

She also appeared alongside Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake in romantic comedy Friends with Benefits.

Along with Spider-Man, the star will also team up again with her Crazy Stupid Love co-star Ryan Gosling for new movie Gangster Squad.

Love it! I’m always looking for all-natural, healthy and affordable skincare solutions!

Miranda Kerr launches a new skin-care line, Kora Organics!

Supermodel Miranda Kerr has launched her own line of skincare products! The Victoria’s Secret Angel said “I was looking for an organic product that really worked for me, but I couldn’t find one.” The 28-year-old model grew up rolling around her grandfather’s vegetable garden in rural Australia, and studied nutrition before taking up modeling full-time.

Kerr has gone back to her roots, with a new skin-care line, Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr, inspired by her family’s own health and beauty remedies. A play on the word core, the concept for Kora ties into Kerr’s holistic approach to well-being—nourishing the body “from the inside and outside,” as she puts it. Along with natural ingredients like rose-hip oil, olive oil, and pomegranate, the secret to her line is Noni juice, an elixir said to aid cell renewal, which is made from a fruit indigenous to Tahiti, that Kerr has been drinking daily since she was a teenager. “I used to put it on my skin if I had a pimple or sunburn. It’s like food for the skin,” she says. Indeed, it is featured throughout the range of the line, in products from her Blemish Gel and Hydrating Day and Night Cream, to a gentle, paraben-free Essential Body Wash, which she uses to bathe her eleven-month-old son, Flynn.

Kora has been a huge hit since debuting in Australia in 2009, and stateside, fans like Gwyneth Paltrow will soon be able to shop her Ecocert–certified products locally as well as online. Manhattan dermatologist Dr. David Colbert will stock her range in his sleek Flatiron office, and Kerr is in talks with several department stores as well.

“I was really the guinea pig for Kora; I tested everything,” says Kerr, who had each formula flown to her from the organic laboratory in Melbourne where it was developed. The Rejuvenating Foot Balm proved exceptionally fun to try out. “Being on my heels all the time, I wanted to create a cream to put on after a long day,” she says. “And it doesn’t hurt that my husband, Orlando, is very good at massaging it into my feet.”

Glee’s Naya Rivera Named New Proactiv Spokesperson

Even cheerleaders struggle with their skin.

Glee star Naya Rivera, who plays the fresh-faced (yet potty-mouthed) Santana Lopez on the hit TV show, recently revealed that she suffered from bad breakouts earlier this year, making it uncomfortable to be on camera each week.

The 24-year-old turned to Proactiv’s acne products to clear up her complexion, and now she’s the brand’s new spokesperson.
“The makeup artist on the set of Glee gave it to me and I kept it using it because I knew it worked for other people,” she says. “I really wanted to work with Proactiv because the products really helped me.”

She joins a star-studded lineup of current Proactiv celebrity customers-turned-spokespeople, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and Julianne Hough.
