KeSARI BEAUTY LAUNCHES THE TRIPHALA RADIANCE COLLECTION

Indian beauty rituals are the most coveted –yet least talked about –global traditions. India is the #1 exporter of hair, yet Indian hair care is not practiced around the world. KeSARI Beauty is a new product line formulated with time-honored, Indian extracts and modernized for today’s beauty rituals, including the Indian Hair Oil Serum with Saffron, Sea Buckthorn Oil, and Jojoba Seed Oil, and the Indian Clay Masque, based off of Indian bridal rituals. The complete KeSARI Beauty collection is available on HSN.com and on air on HSN next Thursday, May 12th.

KeSARI BEAUTY LAUNCHES THE TRIPHALA RADIANCE COLLECTION

KeSARI, a new skin care line inspired by India’s natural healing ingredients and ancient traditions, announces its first complete product collection, Triphala Radiance. Comprised of the Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque, Triphala Radiance Firming Serum, Dark Circle Brightening Eye Cream and a Indian Oil Hair Serum, all four products are formulated with time-honored, Indian extracts and modernized for today’s beauty rituals. The Triphala Radiance Collection launches on HSN and HSN.com on May 12th, 2011.

India, a land of inspiration, fantasy, color, beauty and mystique, is home to an estimated 13,000 plant species, 18 official languages, and over 1000 dialects. A culture based on spirituality and serenity, India embraces the intricate practices of beauty with ancient and sacred traditions that continue to guide the rituals of daily life. KeSARI modernizes ancient traditions to create a beauty product that women can use as a daily ritual for beautiful, radiant skin and hair. Inspired by eastern beauty methods, KeSARI ingredients have been advanced to create the most efficacious firming products available:

Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque with Triphala Radiance Complex
$29.50/6 oz

Pore Minimizing Indian Clay Masque is KeSARI’s crown jewel of the Indian bridal tradition. Minimize the appearance of pores and renew skin’s brilliance with this unique facial masque.

A unique combination of Indian Botanicals, Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, vitamins C and K1, and Chamomile results in smoother, brighter, and firmer-looking skin for your complete eye area.

Indian Oil Hair Serum with Triphala Radiance™ Silk Complex
$31.50 /4.4oz

Indian Oil Hair Serum with Triphala Radiance™ Silk Complex is a remarkably light serum that conditions hair by combining the most efficacious extracts from the Indian hair care tradition. Formulated with Saffron, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and vitamin E, this serum helps hair achieve revitalization, lasting frizz reduction and incomparable luminescence. Leaving hair silky, soft, and manageable, it’s perfect for all hair types, and is safe for everyday use.

KeSARI means Saffron in Hindi. The expensive and potent natural resource is known as the Spice of the Gods and has been used in Indian beauty rituals for centuries to firm and smooth dry skin. Coming from the dried stigmas of the saffron crocus, it takes 75,000 blossoms or 225,000 hand-picked stigmas to make a single pound. One ounce of saffron is literally worth its weight in gold.

All products available on www.HSN.com

KeSARI, a ritual of beauty. Uniting 5,000 years of ancient wisdom from India with modern science.

About the book
Top Cosmetic Scientists Answer Your Questions about the Lotions, Potions and Other Beauty Products You Use Every Day

About The Beauty Brains
The Beauty Brains are a group of chemists who have more than 40 combined years of experience developing and testing beauty products at major cosmetic companies including Proctor & Gamble, Unilever and Alberto Culver. Perry Romanowski, the public face of the Brains, has spent the past 18 years researching and developing products to solve consumer problems in hair and skin care. He is also the coauthor of Beginning Cosmetic Chemistry, an introductory textbook of beauty science.

TEN TRUTHS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT YOUR COSMETICS:
1. Curling Shampoos Don’t Work!
2. Wearing the right fragrance can actually make people think you have lost weight.
3. While brushing your hair does temporarily help distribute natural oils, in the long run brushing “100 strokes every night” strips layers of cuticle and weakens hair.
4. There is no proof that tourmaline flat irons perform any better than the less expensive non-ceramic versions.
5. Sunscreen is one of the best cosmetics you can use to keep your skin looking young and wrinkle-free.
6. Spit on a zit may not be an old wives’ tale after all!
7. There is a difference between antiperspirant and deodorant. Antiperspirant actually stops you from sweating, while deodorant just masks the odor.
8. No cosmetic will make your nails grow longer and stronger, but you can do things to improve their condition.
9. Urea is found in cosmetics, but it does not come from urine!
10. Multiple types of parabens are used in formulas to ensure that your personal care and cosmetic products are as free as possible from disease-causing microbes.

Blow Out’s Jonanthan Antin Shares Tips On How To Get The Perfect Bouncy Blow Out


During the Tribeca Film Festival, Conair set up a Style Studio in the Arts and Cinema Lounge to offer celebrities quick touch ups before their red carpet debuts. On hand to assist with blow out’s was blow out pro and celebrity hairdresser, Jonathan Antin- so we just had to ask how he creates the perfect bouncy blow out. Please find his tops below.

Tips for a Bouncy Blow Out from Jonathan Antin:
For an extra voluminous bouncy blowout, begin by towel drying clean, wet hair. Be certain that hair is rinsed VERY thoroughly.
Use a wide tooth comb to untangle hair.
With a professional quality dryer that has a cool shot button, such as the InfinitiPRO AC Motor Dryer by Conair, dry hair upside down. Follow by smoothing out ends with a round brush on a low, warm setting. Engage the cool shot button every 15-20 seconds.
A professional quality dryer with ionic technology is key because the AC motors featured in these dryers dry hair faster minimizing damage and frizz.
When hair is completely dry, divide hair into 2 inch sections.
Begin at the top of the head, toward forehead and work backwards. Wrap hair around a round brush with a medium-sized barrel so that the section is rolled toward the back of the head.
Using high heat and a concentrator nozzle to pinpoint airflow, dry hair from root to end for 8 seconds, then freeze into place using the cool shot button for 5 seconds. This technique is similar to hot rolling and gets volume, separation and definition. If hair is excessively curly, you can dry hair from mid-shaft to end to minimize styling time.
When finished with the top of head, dry hair on sides and back pointing the dryer downward. This avoids getting frizz and fly-aways.
Dab a pea-sized amount of styling cream into your hands, and smooth it into the ends of hair to define and separate tresses.
Finish hair with a light hold flexible hairspray such as Rusk Being Sexy.
