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.

Meredith recommends a few products that will help you look and be your best in the new year.

Better hair

I recently had a consultation, cut, and style at Art and ScienceSalon 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 perfectlight hair moisturizer to help combat dryness during our longwinters.
  • Shu Uemura Fiber Lift, $38, gives killer volume to the limpestof locks.


Better skin

If you’re looking for a way to combat those lovely lines thatcome with age, then Nuance Anti-Aging Smooth and Firm Elixer is thebest bang for your buck. Nuance is a line by Salma Hayek and can befound 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 gotbetter. 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 DanaPieper has come up with a DVD series that will get you up off thecouch and in better shape than ever. If you don’t have tons of timeor money to spend on getting fit, you’ll love Dana’s “EveryBodyFitness” routines and her highly motivating style. I recommend theKickbox ChallengeDVD, $20. It’s just feels good to pretend punch and kick
things.
