Beauty From The Inside Out

You are what you eat, right? Well, that goes double for your skin, hair and nails. The editors of Women’s Health magazine break down the best foods found in your local supermarket to help you stay glowing and gorgeous all year long!

Dark Chocolate: The sweet stuff contains high levels of potent antioxidants that can help protect your skin from sun damage as well as amp up blood flow to your tissues which will in turn keep skin nourished and glowing. You want to find chocolate that is at least 70 percent cacao because it contains more antioxidants.

Spinach: Being a powerhouse of vital nutrients and vitamins A, these leafy greens help fight inflammation and wrinkles. Also, it’s loaded with an antioxidant called lutein, which helps eyes stay healthy and bright.

Tomatoes: Whether this fruit is sliced, diced or stewed, it helps protect against damage from the sun and other environmental factors thanks to its key ingredient, the antioxidant lycopene. You can eat one serving of tomatoes a day with a drizzle of olive oil, a splash of vinaigrette or a slice of avocado.

Edamame: This soy bean can ease inflammation and stave off collagen breakdown, leaving skin with a more even tone as well as fewer wrinkles. Toss half a cup of boiled edamame into a salad or a pasta dish; one serving per day is both safe and helpful.

Walnuts: Eating just one ounce of walnuts by themselves or in your salad will supply you with your daily dose of nutrients that are responsible for smoother skin, healthier hair and stronger bones. Other top nuts include pistachios, almonds and hazelnuts.

VANESSA HUDGENS GET THE LOOK – NEUTROGENA SUCKER PUNCH PREMIERE 3.23.11


Celebrity Make-up Artist Karan Mitchell created the following look for Vanessa Hudgens
:

For the Sucker Punch premiere in Hollywood Vanessa Hudgens chose a gorgeous grey Jenny Packham dress with intricate beading. She wanted her make-up to reflect the glamorous style of the late Elizabeth Taylor.

We started the look by refreshing and cleansing the skin with Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleaning Towelettes.

I began with the eyes by using Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector in Medium as a base for her eye shadow. I chose the lightest shade from the Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Quad – Butter Creme blending from the crease to the brow as a highlight. I then blended the same shade on to the eyelid. I used the soft shell color from the palette in the crease. I then lined along the above lash and inside the eye with the Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black. I applied individual lashes and then added two coats of Healthy Lengths Mascara in Carbon Black.

For her skin we used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Compact Make-up in Warm Beige. The concealer under the eye was Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector in Medium. To set the foundation I used Healthy Skin Powder in Medium. For her cheeks and her temples and chin, I used the Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer Duo in Posie Glow for a subtle contour. I then blended the Mineral Sheers Blush in Rare Rose on the apples of her cheeks for a soft flush of color.

For the lips I began with the new Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Fresh Plum and finished with MoistureShine Gloss in Wine Wellness.

Jennifer Aniston’s personal message about her debut fragrance!

Actress Jennifer Aniston has blended her most beloved scent recollections to create her debut fragrance. Favored aromas like night-blooming jasmine, wild violets, and Amazon lily—all redolent of her California upbringing—open the fragrance. Its warm finish of sensual musk, golden amber, and sandalwood is inspired by the smell of wood fires at Jennifer’s friends’ houses on summer evenings. These wonderfully fragrant ingredients are topped off with the freshness of citrus grove and rose water, creating a unique combination. With a nod to an admired architect, she has bottled the eponymous floral scent in a beautiful, fluid shape to represent the organic form of a cresting wave.

($39-$70)
