Exterior of Kinara Skin Care Clinic
Now that awards season is winding down here in Tinseltown, we can share the secret to that beautiful glowing skin celebrities sport on their way down the red carpet.  It often comes courtesy of the Red Carpet Facial from skin-maven-to-the-stars Olga Lorencin-Northup, Founder of Kinara Skin Care Clinic and an eponymous skin care line.

The first day of ISSE flew by and now we are on to day 2! One of my favorite things about ISSE is seeing all the products in action and meeting all of the talented people behind them! You never know which favorite new product you might discover while walking the show floor. Today I'm looking forward to checking out as many classes and stage presentations as I possibly can.

Ahhh…summertime. The time of year when the sun lingers on our days, our hair and our minds. I grew up in England where it's common to visit the nearby Mediterranean countries like Spain, Turkey and Greece for a couple of weeks each summer. People would flock to the all-inclusive resorts where the pool was the place to see and be seen. Where the way you look while languishing poolside sipping fancy cocktails is part of the fun. Resort style is almost its own "season" in the world of fashion.
