I can no longer deny that autumn is really here. The equinox has passed and¬†although oddly warm temperatures may be trying to fool summer-loving souls, the¬†scenery of changing leaves and the certainty of chilly nights are shoving the reality¬†of this season in my face.
So, in the spirit of having a "polished finger on beauty,¬†fashion, fitness and nutrition trends," here are my five favorites for fall.
Beauty: Holocuren Miracle Lips
Colder temperatures and drier air signal the¬†imminent annoyance of chapped lips. Applying your favorite shade of lipstick to a¬†flaking, cracked pout can create a chunky mess. In my humble opinion, ChapStick¬†and Carmex are toxic, temporary solutions to a predicament that can last all fall and¬†winter long!
The solution comes from the founder and formulator of the legendary¬†skin care line Epicuren within their holistic line, Holucuren, and their Miracle Lips¬†Serum and Salve. These corrective lip treatments do what no other can: "penetrate¬†at a cellular level to transform the health and vitality of lips." The silky smooth¬†Serum goes on super glossy and shiny, while providing protection and stimulating¬†cell turnover to renew the lips. The Salve is thicker, more like an ointment and¬†melts into the lips, providing major hydration.
Both contain propolis and tea tree¬†oil for anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits, which¬†Holucuren says prevents and heals cold sores, boosts immunity, increases cellular¬†turnover and reduces the potential for lip cancer and aging. I was sent both the¬†Serum and Salve to try, so I‚Äôve been using Miracle Lips twice a day for the last two¬†months, which has revealed, softer, smoother lips and diminished fine lines around¬†the edges with not a hint of chapped-ness yet!
