To coincide with Darphin’s launch of Hydraskin Essential, a $50 face cream described as truly luxurious, the company is inviting women to share their favorite $50 luxury at www.50littleluxuries.com. For every tip shared, a donation will be made to the Ideal Providence Farm to purchase school supplies for the children of the women in Ghana that are harvesting the organic shea butter in Hydraskin Essential. Celebrities are also joining in on the act by revealing their favorite $50 luxury, including Emmy Rossum, who treats herself to buying a favorite TV show DVD series and coffee ice cream; Kara DioGuardi, who indulges in an extra long pedicure massage; and Becki Newton, who spoils herself with fresh flowers. What’s more, on April 21, the 50 most creative entries will win a full-size Hydraskin Essential, and a grand prize winner will be treated to a New York City spa getaway for two, complete with transportation to New York City, two nights at the Surrey Hotel, Darphin treatments, and more.

Although today, April 16, is National Stress Awareness Day, you should be aware of your stress every day and try to minimize it. According to The Health Resource Network, a national non-profit health education organization, stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, as well as aids in the development of alcoholism, obesity, suicide, drug addiction, cigarette addiction, and other harmful behaviors. It also affects the immune system, which protects from many serious diseases. To learn more about the deadly effects of stress, click here.
