Anti-Aging: How To Age Like A Supermodel

These days we all want to look younger and with amazing anti-aging products on the market, such as the Jan Marini Age Intervention collection, it’s not just about good genes.   Can you believe that Brooke Shields, Paulina Porizkova-Ocasek, Patti Hansen and Yasmin Le Bon are all aged 45 and older?  Allure magazine recently asked them how they’ve maintained their looks (and their outlooks) with diet, exercise, beauty rituals, lifestyle changes and attitude adjustments.

Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields, 45, has been gracing magazines, billboards and our televisions for years.  Famous for her Calvin Klein ad campaign, Brooke is a poster child for anti-aging – she looks just as amazing today, 30 years later, as she did in 1980.

“I’m very proud of being fit and strong at this age. I like to Spin three times a week at least and couple it with yoga. I’ve been dancing on Broadway for years, so when I’m in a show, my muscle memory comes right back. It’s like being an athlete.”

Paulina Porizkova-Ocasek

Paulina Porizkova-Ocasek, 46, was one of the original supermodels – gracing the catwalks and glossy magazine with the likes of Naomi, Cindy, Linda et al.  Hard to believe that she credits simply taking care of her skin as her personal anti-aging strategy.

“After age 27, I’d always put SPF on my face. This is just my face. No Botox, no fillers, no nothing. When I compare myself with women my age who haven’t been so SPF-specific, it does seem like their skin took more of a beating. I didn’t worry about my chest, so the difference can be seen there. It’s way wrinklier than my face.”

Patti Hansen

Patti Hansen, 55, is rock and roll royalty – she is married to Rolling Stone musician, Keith Richards. Patti looks as amazing now as she did when she originally caught Richards’ eye.

“In my 20s, I ate hamburgers and pizzas. In my 40s, I started getting—and I’m still getting—more health-conscious. I don’t eat a lot of meat, and I get my vegetables. When I run out [in the morning] and don’t eat right first thing, I get dizzy and need a protein or juice fix. [I must] eat right at the start of the day!”

Yasmin Le Bon

Yasmin Le Bon, 46, is another poster child for anti-aging.  The mother of three teenage girls looks more like her daughters’ sister than their mother.  The beautiful model – and wife of Duran Duran front man, Simon Le Bon – still has an active modelling career.

“I popped out my first daughter when I was 24, and gray hairs appeared the next day. I get a shine treatment every few weeks and stay on top of the color. I get depressed when I start seeing that halo of gray.”

At we have a lot of products that are specifically engineered with the latest in anti-aging technology.  Jan Marini, for example, is a leading manufacturer of clinically validated skin care and aesthetic products for the professional marketplace.  The award-winning products are used by celebrities including Cher, Amber Valetta, Vanessa Williams, Naomi Campbell, Naomi Watts and Paris Hilton.  The number-one selling item form Jan Marini is the Jan Marini C-ESTA Face Cream.  If you try it, you’ll understand why.


Unveiled: The Hottest Hairstyles for 2012

The Hottest Hair Trends of 2012

Every year has it’s must-have ‘do.  And the results for 2012 are now in for what we can expect to see in terms of hair styles next year.  Just this week, the global creative directors of Wella Professionals teamed up–as they do every year–to identify the top four emerging hair trends.

The four female “characters” represent four individual fashion styles and were named Grace, Blaze, Celeste and Roxy.  If you are feeling a little fashion forward, these are great sources of inspiration for this year’s homecoming hairstyles.

Grace: The Modern Muse

Grace is the leading lady–poised and glamorous without even trying.  “The main inspiration for Grace is nature, although there is nothing natural about this look,” explains the press release.  Think pristine, polished styles and glamorous, bouncy blowouts.    Meanwhile, the color palette is soft and light, with a warm glow to emphasize healthy, shiny hair.

To achieve this look, you first want to start with an incredible blowout.  A great hairdryer, such as the T3 Evolution, is essential.  Ditto a perfect round brush.  We like the Bio Ionic Nano Blue Wave Large Round Brush.  If your hair is fine, you might want to help create the illusion of voluminous locks.  The CHI Magnified Volume Stylist Kit is ideal for that.  A little back-coming for added height and you’re done.


Blaze: The Femme Fatale

This trend focuses on stealing the spotlight.  High gloss, statement styles and Latin flair.  Passionate colors like black, grey and fuchsia accent graphic styles and daring shapes.  This look is all about drama.

Though presented as a dramatic, futuristic look at the presentation, you can achieve the effect of this look for your homecoming hairstyle by straightening your hair with a flat iron like the CHI Nano Silver Digital flat iron.  If you want, clip in colorful hair extensions in fuchsia, grey and black.  Spray your hairbrush liberally with hairspray to prevent fly-aways and then brush your hair into a high ponytail, a la Cleopatra.

Celeste: The Free Spirit

“Celeste is an ethereal, otherworldly persona of pure perfection that cannot be pinned down,” say Wella Professionals.   A flattering look for every woman, Celeste is bound to be a year-round popular look.

This look is more about color and shine than a hairstyle itself.  Rosy blonde shades in high-gloss tones are how you can lend a little Celeste to your look.

Roxy: The Scene Stealer

Roxy is the natural center of attention and the life of every party.  Think Studio 54–this is a bold style in a cool red palette for the ultimate style statement and the height of sophistication.

Just as Celeste is more about color, Roxy is about texture.  Inspired by the Missoni Spring/ Summer 2012 runway, the Roxy is all about crimping, curling and back combing for lending your hairstyle a lot of texture and height.

No matter the length of your hair, you can lend this to your homecoming hairstyle, by using a heated tool like the CHI Auto Digital Waver.
