My co-workers make fun of me on a daily basis because I am never seen walking around the office without a bottle of water in hand. I consciously try to keep hydrated at all times, as I realize the benefits of drinking plenty of water for my skin and overall health. However, living in New York, City, I don’t exactly trust the water that comes from the tap, which both smells and tastes terrible. But buying 10-plus bottles of water per day not only costs a fortune but it is also environmentally irresponsible. Now, thanks to the fine folks at WaterGeeks, I no longer have to struggle with this issue. The company recently introduced the Pure Blue Filtered Bottle, a portable, affordable solution created to reduce chlorine, chromium, heavy metals, and other contaminants found in tap water. The filter capacity is 80 gallons (which is about 800 12-ounce servings), so it doesn’t have to be changed often. The bottles are available in a variety of colors, so I can even look stylish while drinking responsibly! To find out more or to order your own bottle, click here.
Between my love for the summer sun, the changing climate, and the harsh reality of aging, my skin tends to require a lot of attention. That’s why I was thrilled to hear about Exhale Mind Body Spa’s new and unique Skincare Revolution initiative. Starting in October, this program is designed to meet client’s specific needs, whether skin is dry, mature, oily, acne prone, combination, or aging. After a consultation, an esthetician creates a customized approach to target and solve existing skincare issues while also preventing further damage. The client may choose between a regimen of four, eight, or twelve sessions. Exhale’s main goal is to build the foundation for healthy skin that can also be maintained at home, so clients will also enjoy a 25 percent discount on skincare products purchased during the program to maintain their newly glowing and revitalized skin.
