Products for a new you in 2013

I've never been a big fan of resolving to COMPLETELY change oneself every Jan. 1. Just because it's a brand new year, doesn't mean ya need a whole NEW you. Why not simply opt for a little bit better you? Way less pressure.

Here are a few fabulous products that can help you bring a little bit of better into your beauty routine.

 
 

Better hair

I recently had a consultation, cut, and style at Art and Science Salon in Evanston and I am now obsessed with the products co-owner and Creative Director Paul Wilson used to make my hair bloom and glow. You can thank me later.

  • Shu Uemura Depsea Moisture Foundation, $33, is the perfect light hair moisturizer to help combat dryness during our long winters.
  • Shu Uemura Fiber Lift, $38, gives killer volume to the limpest of locks.
 
 

Better skin

If you're looking for a way to combat those lovely lines that come with age, then Nuance Anti-Aging Smooth and Firm Elixer is the best bang for your buck. Nuance is a line by Salma Hayek and can be found at CVS. Love that. It's full of vitamins A, C and E and has Sea Buckthorn that helps smooth and hydrate skin. Just what we need in January.

 
 

Better kisser

My FAVORITE (and soon to be yours) lip balm ever just got better. Fresh Sugar lip balms are the yummiest, most soothing lip balms around. And they taste like candy. They run about $22 each for the full-size version, but now they come in a cozy collection of six mini balms in various colors for $48. Yippee! Keep em' all for yourself, or share them with a few of your BFFs.

 
 

Better bod

Local Chicagoland mom (of triplets!) and fitness guru Dana Pieper has come up with a DVD series that will get you up off the couch and in better shape than ever. If you don't have tons of time or money to spend on getting fit, you'll love Dana's "EveryBody Fitness" routines and her highly motivating style. I recommend the Kickbox Challenge DVD, $20. It's just feels good to pretend punch and kick things.
