The bees’ knees

Chantecaille launches Spring 2014 Save the Bees collection

Named the ‘Save The Bees Palette,’ the selection of silky-textured shades comprises of four flattering and illuminating hues, each designed to add a delicate springtime radiance to both cheeks and eyes.

Dubbed ‘Nature’s Pollinators,’ bees have played an important role in our ecosystems for millions of years. However their populations have vastly decreased over the past five years due to disease outbreak, climate change, repeated use of dangerous pesticides and even radiation given off by mobile phones.

As Founder Sylvie Chantecaille stated at the launch, “The environment is our passion,” a fact evident from the fantastic array of good causes championed by the brand in the past. Spring 2014 will be no different as Chantecaille turns its attention to our honey-hoarding, blossom-deflowering bumbling friends of the environment, as they aim to spread awareness on their integral role in nature and the effect their dwindling numbers will have on future fruit harvests and farmers’ livelihoods.

The initiative also hopes to draw attention to worldwide attitudes towards the environment and in particular the overuse of pesticides, by encouraging each country to raise the issue with their relevant authority.

With a golden ‘Honey’ highlighting shade, a more intense ‘Beehive’ brown, crisp ‘Sky’ blue and a fresh flush of ‘Nectar’ coral pink, this palette could hold the key for giving skin a much-needed spring in its step.

Save your back and feet at Rescue Spa

Philadelphia is a city bursting with art, food and color. The second largest city on the East Coast and the fifth most populous city in the country, the birthplace of America is also one of the most walkable cities in the United States. Between the Old City to Center City, there are tons of art galleries and museums to check out, plenty of shopping, and gorgeous buildings best viewed out in the clear. What that means, however, is that visitors might feel a little sore after a day of pounding the pavement. Which is a perfect excuse to check out one of Philly’s many raved about day spas! From simple pedis to Swedish massages, facials to make-overs for a special date night, or just a detoxifying and thoroughly relaxing massage for travel-worn and airplane-cramped traveler, there are tons of spas to choose from, particularly in Center City and the Old City.

Save your back and feet at Rescue Spa

Amidst the trendy art galleries and retail shopping of Chestnut and Walnut streets is an airy and lofty urban oasis wherein highly qualified aestheticians dole out what regular Philadelphian spa-goers hail as the best facials in the city. The founder and star facialist, Danuta Mieloch, has a pristine resume that spans over 20 years in her native Poland, Paris, and then New York. A “classic rescue facial” session with her and her hand-picked expert staff begins with an in-depth skin analysis and then a totally customized skin treatment using their natural “manual lift” facial massage technique. Beyond the classic, they offer bio-lift facials, microdermabrasion, a “high performance” facial which integrates all of their treatments, back facials, oxygenating facials, and all the other spa offerings like massages, body treatments, hair removal, makeup and laser. A vast number of their clientele are the types who get Rescued regularly, but any trip to Rescue Spa is sure to be a real treat!

Men need facials too…

Now that Valentine’s day is around the corner I was thinking it’s pretty easy for men to get a gift for their ladies… but for us it’s always a struggle.  In my years as an esthetician I have noticed that the men who come to me for facials love it!!! Usually they come in because they received a gift from their wife or girlfriend, etc….. Men need facials too, it just takes them one time for them to keep coming back. Rescue Spa has such a nice atmosphere which is gender neutral that allows men to feel more comfortable. There is a steam room that is such a plus with men that work out and take care of themselves. If we also want to talk about a product that is good for men, of course the p50 1970 helps ingrown hair and razor burn and the dermopurifiante for a cream; it’s good for combination skin, reduces redness and regulates oil production. Seems to me a go-to for men.
