Warm Weather Beauty Tips.

Beth Marcis, owner of Her Body & Soul spa has some great beauty tips to keep you looking great as the barometer rises.

Marcis is also launching her own His & Her Better Skin product line, offering all-natural and made in the USA products at affordable prices. The product line ranges from $18 to $30 for a six- to eight-month supply of items like cleansers, serums and sunscreen.

According to Marcis, the following tips will help any vacationer maintain her beauty despite the sun and sand:

- Keep hair moisturized. Swimming and sunbathing can quickly strip hair of its moisture and shine. Before heading out to the beach, apply a non-alcohol-based mask – or if you’re in a pinch, slather your hair in conditioner or shea butter. Use the beach-side showers to rinse and reapply after swimming. Also, wear a hat to protect your scalp from the sun.

- Apply products in the right order. Serums are meant to penetrate clean skin, so be sure to apply these products prior to sunscreen (which basically sits on top of the skin). If you wear makeup to the beach or pool, choose a mineral-based makeup that is high in zinc and apply after sunscreen. Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen every two hours or after every swimming session, and include easily missed areas like the hands, feet, ears and especially your lips.

- Prolong the life of your mani/pedi. If your spa isn’t using natural products on your nails, they will yellow in the sun. Also, when getting your nails done, avoid making appointments early in the day and then heading out to the beach right afterward. Sand and oil can penetrate the products and lessen their longevity. Schedule touchups late afternoon so the products can “set” overnight, prior to sun exposure.

- Treat sunburns with honey. Similar to the standby home remedy, aloe, applying honey to the skin can help restore moisture and alleviate the pain after too many hours in the sun. Marcis offers a full-body Honey Wrap at her spas, but you can achieve a similar result at home by mixing all-natural honey with a little bit of olive oil and applying with a brush or hands onto the sunburned area. Leave the mask on for at least 10-15 minutes.

Virgin Atlantic and bareMinerals Launch “Upper Class Red”

Virgin Atlantic and bareMinerals are giving passengers a taste of the high life this spring with the creation of a bespoke lip color, bareMinerals Pretty Amazing™ Lipcolor in shade ‘Upper Class Red. The debut of this lip color will mark the launch of the airline’s redesigned Upper Class cabin which takes to the skies this spring.

“Red hot lips have always been a trademark of our cabin crew, signifying the strength and confidence they embody,” noted Rebecca Creer, Senior Spas and Grooming Manager at Virgin Atlantic Airways. “With the launch of ‘Upper Class Red’, one of Virgin Atlantic’s most iconic attributes is finally being made available to passengers. Meaning one swipe of this color is all you need to create a classic and timeless look – something our cabin crew can certainly vouch for!”

The lip color has been specially chosen by bareMinerals with Virgin Atlantic’s cabin crew because of the perfect color match to the ‘Virgin Atlantic Red’. bareMinerals only use the finest quality ingredients in its products and its moisture enriching lip formula make it a firm favorite with Virgin Atlantic’s cabin crew – who have already given it their seal of approval.

“We predict that bareMinerals Pretty Amazing™ Lipcolor in ‘Upper Class Red’, is set to be a popular choice as it’s got the coverage of a lipstick but the high shine effects of a gloss to deliver a full-bodied, velveteen color – a red shade that suits every skin tone,” noted Sarah-Jane Froom, European Makeup Artist at bareMinerals. “It’s also been created with frequent fliers in mind as it includes micronized freshwater pearl powder which hydrates the lips alleviating the effects of cabin air pressure. Plus the comfortable and longwearing finish makes glamour last that bit longer, perfect for long-haul flights.”

To promote the launch of the new color and the new Upper Class Suite all female cabin crew will be wearing the shade onboard the new Upper Class Cabin which launches this spring on the A330 flight from London to New York. Upper Class passengers lucky enough to be traveling onboard the inaugural flight will also receive a sample as a welcome gift to take away with them.

The striking lip color, ‘Upper Class Red’, will be sold exclusively at the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse Spa at Heathrow, Gatwick and New York’s JFK International Airport. Passengers who wish to purchase the lip color can do so on board Virgin Atlantic flights through the airline’s inflight shopping guide, Retail Therapy.
