National Hydration Day is June 23rd!

National Hydration Day is coming up and my skin has been reacting to the change in weather. If yours has been too, here are a few results driven options to try.

Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer is here to quench your body’s thirst as it effectively combats dehydrated skin and provides hydration. The wet skin moisturizer is activated by water on freshly-showered skin and penetrates deeply into the skin’s surface to heal dryness for soft, healthy skin you can only imagine. After showering, your pores are open, providing an easy pathway for moisture to absorb into just-showered skin. ($10.99; available at all mass retailers & drug stores nation-wide.)

The water bust is a lightweight transformational gel texture formulated to burst into intense hydration.

($45;

IOPE by AMOREPACIFIC Hydro Serum is a highly-concentrated serum that provides intense moisture to dull, dry skin. The serum is uniquely infused with hyaluronic capsules that burst on contact and penetrate deep into skin to deliver moisture and recharge tired skin.

Get The Look: Kristen Bell at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards

Celebrity Makeup Artist Simone Siegl uses LASHIFY on Bad Moms actress Kristen Bell for 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

“I’m obsessed with lashify lashes. You can’t even feel them on your eyes, and they look amazing on. Super whispy and natural without adding on any mascara. Super high quality. On Kristen’s MTV award look I used the B14 lashes on the outer and C 12 towards the inner to get a nice full whispy look. My new favorite lash system for sure! ❤️”

Get The Look: Alison Brie at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards

At the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Saturday evening, celebrity hairstylist Robert Vetica sent presenter Alison Brie down the red carpet in a retro-cool ponytail created using Leonor Greyl products.

“Our inspiration for the look was the ‘60s—we wanted to go very mod to complement her sheer Sandy Liang gown.

“I did the look in two separate sections—the ponytail piece and the base of the style. To prep the ponytail, I took the wet hair extension and brushed it through, then apply Leonor Greyl Serum SoieSublimateur for an easy blowout that still had plenty of shine. I then rubbed Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel styling cream between my hands and ran them through the ponytail to smooth it out and add body. To create the curls, I used a 1 ½-inch curling iron on large sections of hair, spraying them with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple styling spray on the mid-shafts to the end for soft, touchable hold.

“To create an anchor for the ponytail, I sprayed Alison’s dry hair heavily with Leonor Greyl Spray Structure Naturelle stying spray, directing the hair upwards with my brush. I guided the hair into a topknot, continuously combing and spraying the hair as I worked to guarantee a strong, tight base for the style.

“Once the topknot was in place, I sprayed it with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple for hold and shine, then covered the topknot with a hair net to contain flyaways and make attaching the ponytail easier.

“After securing it in place and concealing the hair net and base knot with hair, I applied on more Eclat Naturel and brushed the ponytail lightly to ensure the look was stable and had gorgeous shine. The finishing touch was a final spray of Laque Souple around the hairline and edges to keep it looking sleek, shiny, and mod.”
