Summer Beauty Tips to Beat the Heat

There have been more scorching hot days this Summer of 2019 than I can count! And I believe I read in the news that this past May and July had some of the hottest days in history. That's why I had to do THIS BEAUTY REPORT on WGN TV Chicago Midday News.

I say it in the video below, which I hope you'll watch [ JUST CLICK IT ] but I'll say it again here: WHERE THERE'S A WILL FOR BEAUTY THERE'S ALWAYS A WAY! These are my tips for the worst beauty blunders of summer.

Problem #1: Your hair is prone to frizz. 

Listen, I feel you on  this one because I've spent a lifetime coping. My best solution, and it's one that works really well, is GKHair's THE BEST TREATMENT. It smoothes, hydrates and conditions your hair for the entire summer, making it frizz-free and easy to style. I get this treatment done at my salon in New York City called Gemini 14 Salon (ask for Christian Sanchez) and I won't lie, it's expensive: $400!!! But it's worth it to me in every way as...

I TRIED THE VAMPIRE FACIAL! WATCH MY PRP TREATMENT WITH MICRONEEDLING.

Are you surprised that I've gone and tried yet another controversial skincare treatment? Don't be. This is what I do...

It's called the "Vampire Facial" because some skincare practioners go to the extreme of making your face all bloody, but it really doesn't have to be that way and I'm glad mine was NOT. The real name for this rejuvenating facial treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy with Microneedling. I went to Youth Corridor for it, and sat down with Dr. Gerald Imber before and after my treatment to understand it better.

WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW TO SEE!

I will admit  that my initial interest stemmed from watching Kim Kardashian receive it. She has the most beautiful skin and the best access to skincare trends, so how could I not be intrigued by it? As you can see from my video above, the Vampire Facial I got was very different than hers. It was a lot less dramatic. Still slightly painful but nothing I couldn't handle.

Stagecoach Inn: A Cozy Hudson Valley Retreat

Welcome to Stagecoach Inn! I hope you enjoy this review of mine as much as I enjoyed the 2 days I spent here at Stagecoach Inn in Goshen, New York. You're probably wondering, where on earth is Goshen? At least that was my first question when I heard about the little town. I've spent 17 years in New York state but had never heard of it. Goshen is a town nestled in the Hudson Valley region of many inns. It has a quiet and relaxed vibe but don't underestimate it because it's got a lot of history to it! Goshen is a wonderful place to retreat to in the coldest of winters or the warmest of summers! I personally loved it because it was a short drive from New York City for me to reach: a whopping 30 minutes without traffic. I was drawn to Stagecoach Inn on January 10th of 2019 because the holidays had just passed and the idea of going somewhere quiet, cozy and charming was a dream. I rented a car and before I knew it, I was driving into the curved driveway of 268 Main Street....

Winter Skincare Tips for Youthful, Hydrated Skin!

Hola amigitos! I'm back with some winter skincare tips that I shared recently on a morning show. Today seemed like the perfect day to write this blog because it's the coldest day of the year here in New York City. It's the type of cold that makes your throat dry just with one inhalation of the air outside. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Your face can take quite a beating in this weather. Here are my tips for the following skin issues that I think we can all relate to in the stark wintertime. And if you can't bother to read, no worries, just scroll for my video below which covers everything!

Dry Flaky Skin: What can you do?

I recommend investing in a good moisturizer that has ingredients known for infusing your skin with hydration. For example, I am a big fan of Cetaphil with Hyaluronic Acid. This is a newer range that Cetaphil came out with last year. The Hyaluronic Acid is the secret weapon as it both locks in moisture and plumps the skin. It comes in a Daytime...
