About 8 of of 10 women have cellulite, even women that are thin or work out often have cellulite. Some of hottest celebrities have cellulite, Pamela Anderson, Misha Baton, Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and Beyonce have all been photographed with cellulite. Kim Kardashian has even had Velashape cellulite treatments on her show. VelaShape offers an effective solution for treating cellulite, which is probably why we have seen it on shows like Dr Phil, Rachel Ray and The Doctors.

What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the unsightly lumpy, dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’ appearance. Cellulite consists of fat deposits that appear mainly on the hips, thighs and buttocks. The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells, which are arranged in chambers. The margins of these chambers contain septae. Over time, the fat cells increase in size and number. This phenomenon together with accumulation of localized edema, push the skin’s surface between the septae in an upward direction. This is what creates the lumpy and dimpled skin appearance, also known as the ‘cottage cheese’ appearance, associated with cellulite.

VelaShape™ Cellulite Treatment
VelaShape™ features the unique elōs™ technology combination of Bi-polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to deploy targeted heat to adipose tissue. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The combination of these energies increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. The net result is gradual smoothening of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite. With VelaShape™ it is easy to enhance your body, improve your lifestyle and feel better about yourself!

The result:
Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
Circumferential Reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
In a clinical multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported Circumferential Reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.

M∙A∙C Spring Colour 2011 is the feminine force that saves the day! No nemesis can match her super-sized Mineralize Skinfinish, Eye Shadows, Lipsticks and Powder Blush for this transformation!

When my BFF, sent me a photo from her phone of the M.A.C. counter decked out and covered with Wonder Woman products, I was totally elated. Anyone that knows me, should know I am a huge Wonder Woman fan! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the M.A.C. cosmetic counter for a couple weeks, and when I finely went to the M.A.C. counter at Paradise Valley Mall, I was disappointed to learn that they had sold out of almost the entire collection. Apparently, this limited edition collection was very popular. The packaging is nostalgic of the Wonder Woman from the comic book series and the cosmetic M. A. C. has even put together a series of Wonder Woman looks: Classic Wonder Woman, Defiance, Golden Lariat, Deep Truth, Mighty Aphrodite and Marine Ultra.

I was so excited and surprised, when my Aunt showed up at my house with the Wonder Woman makeup case and the cosmetic products that they still had left in the collection. I have also been getting text and Facebook messages from my friends about any of the Wonder Woman products they find. If you are looking for the Wonder Woman cosmetic collection, rumor has it that the
M. A. C. counter at the Arizona Biltmore still has some products available. I would like to send out a huge thank you to all my friends and family that have supported my Wonder Woman addiction.

“Please take my hand. I give it to you as a gesture of friendship and love, and of faith freely given. I give you my hand and welcome you into my dream.” Wonder Woman

girl with freckles

There are many people that have embraced their freckles and love them, while others would prefer spotless skin.

Freckles are clusters of concentrated melanin, ranging in color from red, tan and brown. Some people have a genetic tendency to develop freckles, however sun exposure is the main cause of freckles. Freckles generally appear on sun-exposed areas, and will appear darker or more prominent after sun exposure. Ephelides is a freckle which is flat, light brown or red, and fades when protected from UV light. Ephelides are more common in those with light complexions. Liver spots (also known as sun spots and Lentigines) are freckles that develop after years of sun exposure, and are more prominent with age.

If You Want To Remove Freckles

The best way to remove freckles is to have a series of photofacial treatments, combined with bleaching creams containing 4% hydroquinone and tretinoin (Retin-A). A good UVA/UVB sunblock is also recommended, because UV exposure will make freckles more prominent.

Photafacial (Fotofacial) uses IPL (Intense Pulse Light) to treat skin discoloration, redness and broken capillaries. There generally isn’t any down time associated with IPL treatments, however pigmented spots will appear darker temporarily. After a photofacial any freckles or pigmented lesions will darken up and flake off. It can take up to two weeks for spots to flake off. The number of treatments needed will vary depending on the skin condition.

If You Like Your Freckles

If you are not concerned with removing freckles you can use lightening and brightening products. These products brighten the skin without removing freckles. Freckles will fade slightly, but will not go away.

OBAGI C-RX System
If you love your freckles, you may want to skip the Therapy Night Cream from this system. The Therapy Night cream has a 4% hydroquinone, which will further fade freckles and pigmentation. The Clarifying Serum also has a 4% hydroquinone, however this C- serum is only used in the morning and is not enough to eliminate freckles. The Clarifying Serum is great for anyone that wants brighten their skin tone, and still keep their freckles.

White Lightening Complex will brighten the skin, and freckles will fade, but not go away completely.

Prevent Freckles

To prevent freckles, you need to use a good sunblock. I recommend a UVA/ UVB sunblock with an SPF 30 or higher. I also recommend sunblocks with Zinc, because it is a broad band physical block. SPF only measure UVB protection, and even if a product is labeled to have UVA protection, it may not protect from the full UVA spectrum. Topical Vitamin C ( L- ascorbic acid) can also help prevent sun damage because it neutralizes UV radiation.
