Patti's Tip of the Day - A Natural Way to Ageless Beauty

Conair Detangling Brush

Friday, August 30, 2013 6:00:44 AM America/New_York

Healthy, beautiful locks are important to me. It’s also equally important to look your best. 

Sometimes, though, hair-care related problems don’t always fall within my forte. That’s why I go to my gorgeous friends in high places for advice like Kristin Ess at The Beauty Department.

On the subject of tangled and messy hair, Kristin recommends Conair’s Detangling Brush. It’s cheap, (approx. $5) and helps eliminate knots without snagging or hair-pulling.

As she writes, with the brush “there will be no more wincing with each stroke — a true blessing for those with sensitive scalps, especially now that the windows are down every time we get behind the wheel!”

Kristin gushes about our Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Cream stating, “I originally got the starter kit and from there was hooked. I have never been super thorough about exfoliating, so luckily the day cream handles that for me.”

To top off her beauty regimen, Kristin makes sure to apply our Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF 30.

“I'm so fair and I need a good SPF,” says Kristin. “I'm hesitant to use any other brand because they don't have the enzyme in Restorsea. I try to layer that enzyme as much as possible!” To learn more about Kristin, check out our exclusive interview on the Restorsea blog.

Beauty blogger and hair expert Kristin Ess from TheBeautyDepartment shares her beauty secrets, future aspirations, and one of the craziest skincare products she's ever tried.

Restorsea: What are your current 5 must-have items rights now? (Fashion/beauty, health/fitness, food/dining, arts/culture, etc.)

Kristin Ess:
1.  A vintage vanity tray (to hold my Restorsea, obviously!) from one of the chic LA flea markets. I've always been a collector of fancy bathroom beauty pieces.

2. The new Oribe mousse, obsessed. First of all, I love all of his stuff but second, I've been  WAITING for a mousse! Also, have you tried the Apres Beach? Heaven. 

3.  Another 13 perfume. It was a collaboration between Le Labo and Another Magazine. I got the very last bottle from Barney's-- they only made 500! I became insanely OBSESSED and used it sparingly for over a year. Then the heavens opened up when they brought it back. They only sell it at Collette in Paris so you better believe I stocked up during our recent trip! Truly my #1 favorite fragrance and people will chase you down to ask what it is.

4. The new NARS foundation. It comes in a compact, which is great for a girl on the go or anyone who needs a quick touch up after work. Love!

5. The Wella conditioning mask, for post pool summer hair repair! My hair always feels so "crunchy" when I get out of the pool. Problem solved!

R: What is the craziest beauty remedy, product or service that you have tried?

K: I'm all about trying new things, but one facialist gave me a cream to put on my face that was (I'm mortified to say) made from baby foreskin. Let's just end this conversation here. Not only did I throw the sample away, I never went back to her. 

R: What was the inspiration for The Beauty Department?

K: TBD came about because we felt like the instructional how-to's that were out there were not thorough enough for a young girl seeking a beauty education. You could learn some tips and tricks, but there really weren't tutorials of people doing professional-looking hair and makeup tutorials. We wanted to reach the girl in the middle of nowhere who may not have had a big sister or mother to show her how.

R: What is your favorite local spot?

K: You can always find me at SugarFish. Always.

R: Who are your personal style and/or beauty icons?

K: Isabella Blow, Diana Vreeland and Dorothy Draper. If you don't know who they are, I encourage you to look them up and open your eyes to some of the most glamorous ladies of all time. True visionaries and my 3 greatest inspirations.

R: What would you be doing if you weren’t creating content for your site?

K: I would still be doing hair (as I do already), but in addition I would most likely go into furniture design. I have plans.

R: What are your favorite magazines or other online publications?

K: Lula Magazine, Allure, and the international issues of Elle, Vogue and Marie Claire.

R: What would your readers be surprised to find out about you?

K: I'm going to Iceland next month to creative direct a music video for one of my clients who is an incredibly gifted singer, I didn't know how to braid for the first 9 years of my career so I faked it or had an assistant do it. I have 9 brothers and sisters, and I will eventually retire outside of Portland in my dream home-- which will be built from scratch.

R: What are you most looking forward to?

K: I am most looking forward to the reorganization and optimized navigation launch of TBD. Our readers wanted to be able to locate articles quicker and easier so that's our main priority right now.

Among different types of academic writing term papers are classified as those of higher complexity. To accomplish this paper successfully it is necessary to identify the thesis statement, find information to support it and finally summarize the paper providing solution for the problem asserted in your thesis. It is quite complicated task.

To preserve my hair’s health I do not blow-dry it. However, my friend and beauty guru, Kristin Ess of TheBeautyDepartment informed me that I need to apply heat to the roots to avoid limp hair and “brush out immediately to avoid frizz.”

New Restorsea Travel SizesWe are thrilled to announce that our Rejuvenating Day Cream, Revitalizing Eye Cream and Reviving Cleanser are now available for purchase in travel sizes.

All three products have been designed and created specifically for your traveling needs.  Now you can board your plane without worrying that TSA will throw out your skincare must-haves.

frequent fliersAs any frequent flier knows, being in the air is very rough on your skin. Flying at high altitudes with recirculated air in a plane cabin is extremely drying and exposes your skin to stronger UV rays. It is important to continue the Restorsea Regimen, especially while traveling.

Fashion expert Dree Harper states, "If I'm traveling, my Restorsea products go with me because I see a major difference when I don't use them. Seriously, they are amazing!"

Traveling in style is imperative and with our limited edition leather Cosmetic Bag custom designed by Matt Murphy, you’ll be the most fashionable passenger on the plane.  With a silver body and aqua liner, it's the perfect pouch to hold all your Restorsea products and much more.
