IN THE MOOD FOR AN ELIXIR

A 2016 skin care trend will be superfood powders and liquids that supposedly help prevent the signs of aging and more. These products are available at Space NK and Sephora. I am very skeptical and will be sticking with a balanced diet of healthy real food. 7 real foods: www.byrdie.com/foods-for-hydrated-skin 3 more real foods: www.shape.com/lifestyle/beauty-style/4-superfoods-glowing-skin 3 elixirs: www.humnutrition.com/products. www.thebeautychef.com/philosophy www.fountain.co  ...

My friend in Tribeca also really likes the Soho store called “& Other Stories”. So I thought I would share this for those seeking a little edge to their look....
