Sole Patches - No more sore feet

December 27, 2016

We know that wearing no cushioned sole heels after a long walking causes tired and sore feet. 
Recently, I was presented to sole patches, a great idea to avoid sole tiredness and soreness and to keep your heels longer on without wincing in pain! 

"I feel to much pain on the sole of my feet when I wear heels. I've tried the patches on and it really did keep me on my heels longer than I was usually do."
Sole Patches are a sticker that you can put directly onto the ball of your foot, or the heel of your foot, or directly onto your shoe to avoid pain in your feet! The super shock-absorbing properties of the high-tech urethane PORON® will be cushioning your feet every step of the way.

Skin Care - Neutrogena® Rapid Tone Repair and Rapid Wrinkle Repair®

September 23, 2016

Skin problems like discoloration or uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation are a complexion killer for most of the women. The condition is caused by increased levels of melanin which is a pigment in the body that determines your skin color. This condition is more common in dark-skinned people (like me) who naturally have a lot of melanin, but anyone can develop it. That’s why it is very important to evaluate your skin and choose the right products to treat your problem. As my skin tone develops a higher amount of melanin, I have always suffered dark spots. Also, my skin tends to get extra dry during the winter time. To treat this condition I have selected an special skin care regimen. I just started treating my skin with this combo of products launched by Neutrogena. I am using Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream.

Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is clinically proven to reduce the look of dark spots and discoloration for noticeably more even, younger looking skin. Vitamin C gently helps diffuse the look of brown spots and even out skin tone.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry Skin with hyaluronic acid delivers vital hydration and instantly quenches the skin. While oil-free and smooth to the touch, this unique gel-cream formula absorbs quickly, but has the long-lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream with olive extract that helps lock in hydration. 

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of NEUTROGENA® and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. The opinions and text are all mine.

Gray Away - Cover-up Hair Gray Roots

September 6, 2016

Cambridge, MA, USA

Being a working mom makes finding the time to go to the beauty salon a major challenge. Before I had a child I could easily visit my stylist as soon as I noticed a grey root in the mirror. Now as a mother not only do I have very little extra time, but those undesirable gray roots are multiplying. Instead of visiting my hair stylist once a month, I need to go twice a month. I don’t have time to do this, but I found a solution. It is a root cover-up product called Gray Away by EverPro. This hair temporary “makeup” is applied to new growth just along the part and hairline for a quick and easy temporary fix.

Recently, I heard about a root cover-up product called GRAY AWAY. This hair temporary “makeup” is applied to new growth just along the part and hairline for a quick, easy temporary fix.

In addition to camouflaging gray the product can be used to blend roots into colored hair that has no gray and to fill in thinning areas for a fuller look. With just a few swipes of an applicator this product blends away the strip of new growth that seems to scream “I dye my hair”!  You can imagine how this made my life so much easier!!

Fashion - Runa Ray Summer 2016 Collection

August 19, 2016

Photo credit: Martin Spencer 

Fall is approaching and it is time to think about getting new pieces for your wardrobe.  What about some origami inspired pieces?

The designer Runa Ray debuted her Fall 2016 collection last February in NYC the collection named THE SUBTLE TEACHINGS OF ORIGAMI brings an array of clothes inspired by the art of origami.
We are constantly evolving and transforming into what we would like to be. Evolution is thus a natural process. It is fascinating the way in which a piece of paper can be folded and unfolded says Runa Ray. Thus, the designer compares the use of Origami techniques to create clothing to the way a person's life progresses. She starts with basic folds and may fold and unfold and fold again until she has a completed design.
