Multitasking Beauty Products 2015

Why should you be the only multi-tasker in the house?   If you need to put the you back in you time, here are 3 products that will do an excellent job of saving you time, effort and money in the beauty regime department.

L’Oreal EverCrème Cleansing Conditioner:

hair

If your hair is dry (and at our age, whose isn’t?) then this one-step, no-shampoo, gentle way to cleanse and condition your hair might be the ticket.  Ideal for over-bleached and dry hair, it cleans without stripping and leaves your hair super-soft and shiny.  Pack this in your holiday luggage as the antidote to the harsh effects of sun and saltwater.  Note to Wen lovers: This is a super-affordable alternative.

L’Oreal EverCrème Cleansing Conditioner  $6.99  Available at drugstores.

Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil

VO

This double-duty product moisturizes hair and skin, is free of mineral oils and won’t clog pores or strip your skin’s natural oils. Luscious argan, macadamia, sunflower, shea, grapeseed and coconut oils will work their magic on straight-out-of-the-shower you.

NutraVege High Potency Vegetarian Omega-3 Liquid

You’ve got to love a beauty product with health benefits.  Or is it the other way around?

The “good fat”  omega-3 fatty acids that work wonders for your health also happen to be great for your skin.

According to Ann Yelmokas McDermott in WebMD, PhD, nutritionist at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University in Boston, “… fatty acids are responsible for the health of the cell membrane, which is not only what acts as the barrier to things that are harmful, but also the passageway for nutrients to cross in and out and for waste products to get in and out of the cell.”

The result: having a healthy barrier yields moister, softer, more wrinkle-free skin.

Until now, most supplements tasted like fish – no matter how pure the formulation.  If you’ve had bad experiences with fish supplements (hands up!), here’s your chance to get with the program.  NuraVege’s  unique vegetarian formulation is not only high-potency, it’s got a mild fruity flavour that means you won’t dread taking it.

A bit pricey, but you’re worth it.
