National Festival of Sleep Day is Coming Up On January 3rd

National Festival of Sleep Day is next week on January 3rd . We could all use some quality ‘shut eye’ and relaxation after the holidays. Night time beauty regimes always help us to get better sleep after a busy few days or anytime. Try this lineup of night time essentials that will have you waking up looking and feeling more refreshed than ever:

  • IMAGE Skincare ILUMA intense brightening exfoliating powder ($32;IMAGESkincare.com): Start your night of pampering with this water-activated, micro-exfoliating cleansing powder. This gently exfoliating powder polishes and buffs away radiance-impairing dead skin cells to brighten and illuminate the skin, leaving it smooth and prepped to absorb night creams.
  • IOPE Super Vital Extra Concentrated Eye Cream ($90; us.aritaum.com): Made with plant-derived ingredients, this super concentrated eye serum protects skin from dryness and laxity, while smoothing and firming the skin.
  • KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial ($48; Sephora.com): Finish your nighttime routine with an overnight facial to be the ultimate sleeping beauty. This Wild Rose and Vitamin C formula melts instantly into the skin, and continues to work throughout the night. Wake up with soft, smooth skin, and a recharged complexion.

Courage and “The Unhappy Smile”

by Lisa Gal

Tracey Horton’s self-help book “The Unhappy Smile” is packed with insights in to understanding yourself and others. I read something today that said, sometimes the strongest among us are the ones you need to check on the most. They smile through silent pain and cry when no one is looking. On the surface they look like the people we aspire to be. Tracey’s personal story of brokenness and her path to becoming whole again is woven throughout “The Unhappy Smile” with exercises at the end of each chapter to help you work through whatever situation you currently find yourself challenged with. We are thrilled to include her book in our Hollywood Swag Bags being gifted to the nominees, talent and guests staying at the Four Seasons Hotel next month honoring Golden Globe weekend.
