It may be raining and overcast in NYC today but summer is just around the corner and we want to make sure you keep you skin clear and sunburn free!
The Problem| Breakouts
Solution: Intensify your anti-acne routine.
Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid work to kill acne bacteria, reduce oil, calm inflammation and clear pores. Try the Ole Henriksen Roll-On Blemish Attack - the perfect weapon in the war against breakouts. The convenient roll-on applicator provides portability and seamless application.
The Problem | Uneven Tone
Solution: Combine brightening and exfoliating treatments - and stay out of the sun.
Use a product with Retin-A. Try the DDF Retinol Energizing Moisturizer - contains a potent form of Vitamin A in combination with Omega-3 essential fatty acids and humectants to help recondition skin for firmer more youthful-appearing skin tone and texture.
The Problem | Ashy Skin
Solution: Exfoliate and hydrate!
Alpha-Hydroxy Acids loosen dead skin cells and strengthen your skin’s outermost layer. Try Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels - an easy 2- step system gives you a highly developed skincare regimen plus Microexfoliation. Microexfoliation is a gentle, non-irritating method of removing cellular debris from the surface of the skin, resulting in a smoother, firmer more even complexion.
The Problem | Sunburn
Solution: Find soothing ingredients.
Soothing ingredients like aloe can speed healing. Try Anthony foe Men After Sun Soothing Creme - Aloe is a natural Ingredient that moisturizes, soothes, and helps promote healing and calms. Refreshes, softens and soothes. In high concentrations in a cream or lotion, aloe extract can have healing properties and is also a mild humectant. Called the “medicinal plant” for its wound-healing properties. Helps restore the natural pH level to skin. Research suggests that Aloe Vera is very popular with men.

Weird, Wacky and Whatever Wednesday’s: Necks
Nobody wants a turkey neck!
Did you know that the neck is the most neglected part on our bodies when it comes to beauty regimes. The majority of women, myself included, make face care a priority in their everyday routine but forget about our necks. No more ladies!! No more!! I don’t know about you but I definitely don’t want a turkey neck.
Our necks are one of the areas of the body most vulnerable to skin darkening and maturity because the skin is much thinner on the neck than it is on the face, making it more prone to UV damage from natural sunlight and any other forms of UV light. So make your neck part of your daily routine, whatever you do for your face do on your neck, this should include exfoliation 2-3 times a week. It is sometimes hard to wash your neck so I have been using my Ole Henriksen Truth-to-go wipes and the Somme Institute Neckline Cream. I’m not taking any chances!

Packing List: Summer Travel
It’s summer! Accordingly, I’m packing my bags for a summer of travel. I’m traveling between Nantucket, Los Angeles, Denmark, Montauk & Boston, not a bad summer line up; however, with each destination & the change in climate it wreaks havoc on my hair & skin. Above & beyond the essentials these are the 10 products that are coming on every trip with me.
I always get a blow out before a trip; it alleviates the anxiety of having to do it myself! Usually by day 3 my hair looks oily and I should wash it…instead I use the Blow Faux Dry Shampoo to remove the excess oil from my hair & give it volume. When it is finally time to wash my hair I go for the beach/wavy look. It is super easy to achieve & doesn’t require a blow dryer (one less thing to pack). I spray the Blow Beach Blow Texturizing Mist on my hair when it is damp, run my fingers thru it and I’m good to go.
Supergoop! Save Face Serum SPF 30+ Amazing product! I add to my face & body lotion in the morning when getting ready. It keeps my skin hydrated and protected from the sun without irritation and in case I forgot to apply sunscreen I know I’m covered.
Jonathan Weightless Smooth No-Frizz Hydrating Balm-Great for smoothing out even the frizziest summer hair without weighing it down. My hair gets super frizzy!
Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes-I throw these in my bag for the beach, working out or if I’m just walking around in humid climates. I use them to remove makeup on the nights I’m feeling super lazy.
I have started to wear a hat when I’m outside to avoid tanning my face. Obviously, I want a sun kissed complexion in the summer months so I cheat & use the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads. Oh & they exfoliate as they tan!
I carry The Laundress Delicate Wash so I can wash my bathing suit & cover up every night. During the hot months my clothes seem to wrinkle easier when I pack so I also carry The Laundress Crease Release. Works like a charm.
Anthony for Men After Sun Cooling Cream-nothing feels better than this lotion after a long day in the sun. It doubles as my body lotion.
Antibacterial Towelettes…because you just never know when you’ll need them and you’ll be glad you have them when you do need them! I like the Herban Essentials Lemon scent for summer, the citrus is refreshing.
Help! I’m Hung over…
We’ve all been there.
We all have those nights where we have been “overserved” and wake-up feeling less than glamorous-3floz to the rescue! All these products in the Help! I’m hung over kit are small enough to carry with you so wherever you wake-up you can look and feel better in minutes.
Ole Henriksen truth to go wipes - Let’s get the day started off right by removing any make-up and film from your night out on the town or your Bridget Jones “all by myself” evening.
David Kirsch B12 Spray - This stuff is AMAZING! Spray 5 times in your mouth and you will notice an energy boost as well as an ability to drink water again-which at times seems impossible.
Go Smile Jet Set Kit- This is pretty self explanatory right? Brushing your teeth always gets your day off to a good start.
Anthony for Men Rescue Eye Stick - This product is not just for men! It feels so good under your eyes after a night out and helps de-puff and lighten circles to get your back to your pre-party look!
myfaceworks I need to wake up- When you have had “one of those nights” use this mask to bring your skin and your eyes back to life.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo- Chances are if you are hungover you did your hair the night before so why wash it again so soon? Use Oscar Blandi Invisible Volumizing Pronto Dry Shampoo to help recreate your hair from the night before-great for ALL HAIR COLORS!
Spring into Summer with Alexi & Kate’s Tried & True products!
Testimonial: Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
Stylist Evelia from Blowny came to us needing a recommendation for her eyes “I’ve been having extremely puffy eyes these days. Not just bags, underneath my eyes, but even my lids would be swollen in the morning. I tried cutting back the salt, sleeping with an extra pillow so my head is elevated. Cleanse my face and apply my hydrating eye cream. Still puffy eyes in the morining with 8 hrs of sleep, help.” We suggested the Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel:
Read her results: “The first night I used Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel, I didn’t even wash my face. I was feeling lazy, but still applied the gel before sleeping. The first thing I did in the morning was examine my eyes. My puffy eyes were just slightly puffy, but looked hydrated. I was happy. The second night, I washed my face, applied my face cream and the eye gel. The next morning I felt normal..my eyes weren’t puffy at all!!!.. I was shocked and impressed!!! I’m hooked.”
It is one of Kate’s must have products also. See what she says about it here: http://www.3floz.com/products/ultimate-lift-eye-gel.aspx and if this isn’t enough for you to try it - it is Kate Gosselins go to product also!
