Beauty & Beyond: Getting Through the Heat Wave

On the heels of this nasty heat wave we’ve been having, I’ve discovered one thing. I hate night creams. The last thing in the world I want to do is slather on a heavy cream and then lie there sweating it off while I’m trying to fall asleep in my hotter-than-the-optimal-64-degrees bedroom. City girl alert - we don't have central A/C. Just tiny wall units. Pity me. I welcome it.

I can definitely tell the difference in my sleepy skin when I don’t use anything. I wake up lacking. So on a search I went for something that covered me in a veil not a wet blanket of skin-saving nutrients.

Bioque Rejuvenating Night Cream has a consistency of whipped pudding and this fit the bill (because really, there's always room for dessert). It’s light and fluffy and disappears once you smooth it on. And the key is that it’s actually feeding your skin, since it’s peptide-rich and botanical-bursting for overnight extra-deep moisturizing.

The trick to their technology is based on Nobel Prize-winning concept that cells talk with each other – and that in order to get “through to them,” you have to speak their language.

Called scientific skincare, Bioque uses Signal Technology to deliver over 80 percent beneficial natural compounds into the interior of skin cells in both the inner and outer layers of skin.

Are you listening cells? I'm talking to you. I'm telling you to get some beauty sleep. Even if it is 82 degrees.

Another place I’ve decided is not exactly great during heat wave would be the décolleté. Put cream there and five seconds later, you’re sweating through your shirt. Right...*points to between her boobs*...there.

Erno Laszlo has been around since 1927, so leave it to him to come up with the most incredible treatment for this area (one also known to show your age first).
