Chocolate For Hair Health

To help stop hair loss, try using chocolate! Chocolate is made up of delicious cocoa and is rich in Magnesium. In addition, cocoa adds vibrancy, shine, and volume to hair while promoting hair growth.  To encourage hair growth, the blood circulation is activated in the scalp, so that it stimulates hair follicles to grow.  This all-natural DIY chocolate hair treatment will help hair become thick, silky and help to rejuvenate dry, dull brittle hair. 

  •          Do not use if you are allergic to cocoa products or have blonde hair. 


2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

1 teaspoon of cocoa butter (optional)

Half a spoon of coconut oil

1 teaspoon of honey


Put the cocoa butter and coconut oil in a bowl then add the honey.  Warm the mixture up until the ingredients melt, while mixing it.  Finally add the cocoa powder to the mixture and give it another stir to fully mix the ingredients.

Once the mask is ready begin by applying the mixture from the ends up towards your scalp.  To encourage hair growth, make sure to massage the mixture into the scalp.  Leave the mixture on your hair for 15-30 minutes if your hair is a lighter color, for darker hair you can let it stay for 40-60 minutes.  Finally wash the mask out with shampoo and a little conditioner if needed.  To avoid staining clothing, make sure to wear a protective cloth while applying the hair mask.

This mask is only recommended to do once a week.  





Delectable Chocolate Lip Scrub 

With winter comes dry chapped lips. To help exfoliate your lips with a delicious twist, we have this delectable DIY chocolate lip scrub in time for Valentine’s day.  This scrub will help keep your lips smooth and supple. Lip scrubs should not be used more than three times a week, or your lips natural moisture may be stripped. 

Best time to exfoliate is at bedtime, followed up with a great treatment such as the Modèle Collagen Lip Treatment. 


3 tablespoons white granulated sugar 

1 tablespoon cocoa powder 

2 teaspoons olive oil 

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 

1 small drizzle of honey 


Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until a paste forms.  If too thin add more sugar, if too thick add more olive oil and honey. Scrub can be stores in a sealed container in refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. For application, apply to lips with a thick application and leave on for up to 5 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and finally apply the Modele Collagen Lip Treatment.

Apple Cider For Hair Health 


October is Apple month and we have a great apple cider vinegar rinse for your hair this month. Apple cider vinegar is an amazing natural and organic topical treatment for a variety of hair issues especially hair loss.

How does apple cider vinegar help with Hair loss?

Apple cider vinegar stimulates better blood circulation to the hair follicles. Which is something that is vital for encouraging hair growth and preventing hair loss. This blood carries essential nutrients to the hair follicle cells, strengthening the roots and promoting growth.  The best apple cider vinegar to use is one labeled as natural, organic or unfiltered. As these tend to contain all the bacteria and enzymes that make the vinegar powerful.

How to do a Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse

  • Blend together one cup of water with 2-4 tablespoons of vinegar to make rinse.
  • After shampooing and rinsing your hair, slowly pour the mixture over your entire head,making sure to have it run down the     length of your hair. Be careful to not get rinse into your eyes.
  • Massage the mixture into your scalp, which will also help stimulate circulation and hair growth.
  • After 1-2 minutes, rinse out the vinegar.
  • For dry hair, start out with 2 tablespoons per cup of water. For oily hair or dandruff. 3-4 spoons will be good. You can always     adjust to see what works best for you.
  • Hair rinse should be repeated anywhere from once a month to twice a week. Once a week is best for most hair and scalp issues.

More Tips!

Adding Rosemary essential oil to the hair rinse also helps stimulate the roots, improves hair growth, and increases circulation in the scalp. Other oils to try are Cedarwood or clary sage essential oil as well stimulates the scalp as well promotes hair growth. When adding essential oils to the apple cider vinegar hair rinse blend two cups of cider vinegar with 5-10 drops of essential oil. Then store in a cool dark place for up to twelve months. When you are ready to use, dilute 2-4 tablespoons of the mix with one cup of water. 

Luscious Lips The Natural Way 


I am sure many people love the beautiful fall season and as well the cooler sunny temperatures of a fall day. The drawback though is that our skin tends to become dry and chapped, especially our lips.  This could be from a number of factors such as allergies, weather or dehydration. Either way nobody enjoys flaky dry skin and the irritation that comes along with it. To help you enter into the fall season we wanted to share with you a few natural tips to keep your lips hydrated. 

  • Cucumbers – Using cut up cucumber slices. Hold them on your lips for 20 minutes. The water from the cucumbers will help to moisturize and replenish dry lips.
  • Green Tea – Use 1 used green tea bag and press it against your lips for at least 4 minutes. You can do this daily so that the moisture content in your lips becomes better.
  • Sugar scrub – Mix a little water with brown sugar to create a lip scrub. By rubbing the mixture on your lips once or a couple times a week, you will exfoliate your lips the natural way!  You       will remove that ugly dry or dead skin from your lips.
  • Jojoba oil – Just use a few drops of Jojoba oil and put on dry lip areas. Leave on for around 15 minutes.
  • Coconut oil – This is a great lip moisturizer! You can warm some up in the microwave and then apply to your lips. This is a great moisturizing natural lip gloss, as it provides a little shine also!
  • Honey and Olive Oil – Mix small amounts of both olive oil and honey together and apply to lips. Leave on overnight and you will have soft and smooth lips in the morning!

6 Tips to Renew Daily Routines

Summer is coming to an end and that also means that back to new routines is also here. Possibly summer had you out of your usual health and beauty routines making it somewhat difficult to get back to a healthy routine. With a few simple tips we are to help get you back on track. Back to a renewed, refreshed and rejuvenated you!


1)     Fade Sunspots Or Age Spots 

To fix damage done to your skin from too much sun exposure over the summer, consider using sunscreen to prevent further sun damage. Also be sure to try out our Papaya DIY face scrub as outlined in this month’s newsletter, to hydrate skin and assist in removing dark spots.

2)     Freshen Up Dry Damaged Hair

Considering all the sun damage and long days at the beach this summer, your hair has possibly taken it's toll? No worries as there is a few simple steps you can take to repair your dull damaged tresses. Visit your salon to have a trim or new style, helping to cut out those damaged dried out ends. As well try out the papaya hair mask featured in this month’s newsletter to help moisturize your hair. Helping to make it shiner and healthier. Always use temperate water as hot water is drying to your scalp, skin and hair.

3)     Moisturize your lips

Even though the sun provides us with much needed Vitamin D, the sun can also dry out our lips if not well protected. Keep lips moisturized and protected with a moisturizing lipstick or lip treatment product such as the Modele Lip Collagen Treatment product.  Exfoliate lips at night before bedtime with a paste gently massaged along lips using a soft toothbrush once a week. Paste mix can easily consist of products you have at home such as: baking soda and water. Followed up by using the Modele Lip Collagen Lip Treatment to moisturize the lips after exfoliation. 

4)     Getting into shape

Chances are that over the summer workouts may have been put on the back burner and a little indulging has taken place. No worries as it’s never too late to kick your workouts into high gear and get your sweat on. Need some new inspiration to get you excited about working out again? Why not try getting workouts done in the mornings to give you a fresh start to your day? Try group workouts for extra motivation such as: crossfit, boot camps, yoga, aerobic classes at your local gym, or joining a running/walking group at your local running club. Not ready for a group atmosphere yet? Try hiring a personal trainer to do some one on one workouts with, invest in some at home weights to have at home workouts, or go swimming if that is more your comfort level. Enjoy playing specific sports? Try joining a league specific to a sport you enjoy such as soccer, basketball or volleyball. Whatever your interest may be make time for your health and go for it!

5)     Clean Eating

Summer eating can often lead to excess drinking and eating. In wanting to get back into a healthy routine you can look at making some small changes to get you on your way. Start increasong your water intake throughout the day. Try infused water by adding in strawberry, cucumber, lime and mint to avoid drinking sugary drinks. Keep healthy snacks on hand such as cherry tomatoes, cut up peppers, cucumbers, nuts, edamame, and handy fruits. Most importantly make sure to have a healthy start to your day by eating a breakfast that contains equal amounts of protein, carbs, and healthy fats. For example try adding nuts, omega oil, cinnamon and half an apple to a bowl of oatmeal in the morning for a tasty treat. Either way experiment in making breakfast fun and helping you get that kick start into your mornings.

6)     Workout Hair

With getting back into a regular daily routine, comes morning and afternoon workouts. Followed up often by meetings or a fun outing. To get you going we have some hair styling tips to get you ready. Dry shampoo is a great product to use to freshen up your hair quickly after a workout, that is if you haven’t sweat too much. Dry shampoo can also be used previous to a workout along the hairline to soak up sweat while you workout. To style your hair before a workout try a topknot or a braid. So after your workout you will have some waves once you take the top knot or braids out. In the case you are dripping with sweat, then unfortunately you will need to shower. You can at the very least just rinse your hair and for a quick style try a low sleek ponytail.   





Papaya to Refresh

To obtain the refreshed you after a sunny summer, in addition to considering September is papaya month; we are providing some great papaya facts this month. Along with two yummy papaya beauty recipes using a few healthy ingredients you can find easily at your local grocer. Papaya fruit is normally consumed in juices, salads, desserts or simply on its own with a wedge of lime.  Did you know that papayas provide a great source of Vitamin C, folate, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin E, carotenoids and lycopene? Another great benefit of eating papaya is for the enzyme, papain, which is great for digestion.  The seeds of the papaya fruit are also edible, but keep in mind to eat in only small amounts (1/2 teaspoon) as they have a strong flavor. Tasting more like a cross between mustard and black peppercorns. The large Caribbean or Mexican red papayas are best to consume as they are not genetically modified.

Papaya masks can be used for hydrating the hair nourishing it from root to tip. Considering the amount of beta-carotene papayas contain they are great for battling dry hair, making hair stronger and healthier. Enjoy making the below recipe for healthier renewed hair.

Hair Mask

Ingredients:  1 papaya, Honey, Extra Virgin olive oil

Step 1 – Peel and take out seeds of half a papaya. Then chop up half the papaya.

Step 2 – Next put papaya in food processor. Add a tablespoon of honey and one or two tablespoons of olive oil. Add more oil if your hair is too dry. Blend ingredients until smooth texture is reached.

Step 3 – Once ready pour mixture into a bowl. Rinse hair and apply the papaya mask on damp hair. Focusing more on the tips of your hair. Leave mask on for 30 minutes, then rinse and wash hair as normal.

As well papaya is amazing to achieve beautiful glowing skin. It is great for hydrating your skin, while removing dark spots, blemishes and acne. This recipe will hydrate skin, improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles, blemishes, acne, age spots and discolored skin.

Face Mask  

Ingredients: 2 slices of firm papaya, 1 tablespoon of white or brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon honey

Step 1 – Peel and remove seeds from two slices of firm papaya.

Step 2 – Put cut slices into food processor while adding in the sugar and honey. Process until a smooth consistency is reached.

Step 3 – Once scrub is ready apply to face.  Apply to clean skin. Best to apply scrub to face after pores are open perhaps after a shower. Using fingertips apply scrub in circular motion focusing on the parts with most imperfections.

Step 4 – Leave on for 15 minutes and then wash off.

Don’t forget to enjoy eatting the rest and also to try the papaya seeds!

Exercise your way to healthier hair!


We all know the benefits of exercise and how great it is for our overall well-being. But did you know that exercise is also incredibly crucial to maintaining healthy hair?

When you’re stressed, which is a leading cause of hair loss, your body produces stress hormones (cortisone). Exercising increases happy hormones (serotonin), which can help save your hair.  So the next time your workload piles up and you feel like pulling out your hair, opt to hit the gym instead and save your hair – literally.

Another benefit of exercise is sweating! Through sweat we rid our body of toxins, flushing them out of our pores, leaving us with radiant skin. And when we sweat from our scalp, it helps unclog the hair follicles, leaving room for new hair to grow! 

Exercising also increases blood flow to our muscles, skin and scalp bringing more nutrients and oxygen to our roots. So even if you’re eating healthy, make sure you’re being active, otherwise you’re depriving your muscles, skin and scalp from those critical nutrients.

Best of all, 30 minutes a day is all you need. The best types of workouts for your body and hair are moderate to high-level cardio (the sweating kind).

Volume 7 - Summer Essentials

Sunny skies and warmer weather is finally here. As you start to spend more of your time outdoors, we wanted to share a few simple yet effective ways to keep your hair and lips safe while beach ready.  


Sealed with a kiss,


Club Modèle, France 








Summertime is the perfect time to simplify beauty routines. After all, who wants to spend the whole day inside getting ready? Here are three simple and effective tips for maintaining beautiful hair and skin in minimal time for maximum effect.

HAIR: Simple Summer Styles

Undo the Updo
A typical updo can look too slick and flat with thin hair, but mussing up the front pieces and giving it a deliberately loose look makes it appear fuller.

Shine On With a Sparkly Headband
Adding a thin headband breaks up your look and makes your hair appear thicker. Plus, it's a glamorous touch.


When The Heat Is On Lighten Up: Apply light make-up and lips

Whether you're going to the beach or just feel like embracing the carefree summer vibe, skip the base entirely and stick to a concealer. "Covering up shadows, spots, or blemishes with just concealer means you won't have to worry about blotting away your makeup along with shine." says makeup artist Emily Kate Warren*

Avoiding heavy lipstick is another must in the summer time. When the heat goes up, it’s best to stick with a pencil or gloss for beach ready lips.








Make Your Lips Look Their Best This Summer Your Best Summer Lips

Summer is finally here! As the warmer, sunnier weather arrives we all want to put on our brightest colours and try fun new looks. But how do you keep your lips looking great during the summer? Here are three summer lip tips to keep your lips looking as good as summer feels:

Turn to a tinted pencil over a pop of lipstick.
According to makeup artist Daniel Martin, a tinted pencil is the secret to getting an easy matte finish that’s more resistant to humidity. “The formulas tend to be a little drier, so they last longer than some lipsticks.”

Source: Vogue

Keep those lips bright from morning til’ night!
Whether you opt for hot pink or vibrant orange, bright colours are a must-have this summer. However, as the heat and humidity rises, the longevity of your lipstick fades like a flower in the sun. To keep your pop of colour all day & night, apply a thin coat of lipstick sealer after you’ve applied your lipstick and you’ll be ready to go!


Big is Beautiful 
One of the hottest lip trends this summer is beautiful, full and voluptuous lips. Celebrities, such as Kendall Jenner, are seen hitting the beach in their favourite bikinis and big, bright, beautiful lips. Using collagen as a base helps to restore lip volume and even retain moisture for those long, hot summer days.





Beat the heat and protect your hair with these easy tips!

Warm weather, long days and sunshine epitomize summer. Pools are frequented on the weekend, cottages and road trips are sought after vacations and up-do’s become the hair styling option of choice.

But did you know all of those things could take a toll on your hair?

Rarely will anyone go out in the sun without first protecting their skin and layering on sunscreen. Can you remember the last time sunscreen was applied to your scalp? Likely not! This is an easy area to neglect, as it’s not directly exposed. However, sun damage can also penetrate into your scalp and damage your hair follicles. Those follicles are where the hair root grows and if that area is damaged beyond repair it could inhibit new hair growth.

Here are four simple steps to protect your scalp and hair this summer:

Step 1
Non-greasy sunscreen options should be applied to the scalp before sun exposure. Look for a dry-spray formula with an SPF of at least 30. Also remember to reapply when in the sun for prolonged periods of time.

Step 2
Hats offer a great barrier from the sun. A common myth is that hats cause hair loss. Make sure that the hat is clean and fits properly – this will ensure your hair can breathe. 

Step 3
Moisten your hair before going in the pool as dry hair acts as a sponge for chlorine and other chemicals. It is also important to shower and rinse off using fresh, clean water after swimming.

Step 4
Use gentle hair ties when pulling hair back. Wrapping hair too tight can cause breakage, making hair appear thinner. Invest in soft material ties and ribbons when putting hair up to beat the heat.

Volume 6 - Inside Outside Beauty



Oh Baby, Where’s My Hair

Pregnancy Hair Loss

With the warmer weather approaching it means blooming gardens, sunshine and…a boom of babies! Did you know that most babies in North America are born in the spring and summer?

Babies are a source of joy, love, fun and oh yeah, stress. As much as we love them sometimes they make us want to pull our hair out. Hair loss can also happen as a result of childbirth.

During this time of dramatic hormonal changes, a normal hair growth cycle can become disorganized. Typically, while pregnant your hair remains locked in the resting stage of the growth cycle, and after delivery, when hormones return to normal levels, so too does your hair growth cycle. The average hair loss that was delayed during pregnancy may come all at once post-partum, resulting in a cascade of hair loss.

Another cause of hair loss can be nutritional deficiencies, such as low iron levels. During pregnancy it is common to develop mild anemia as your body struggles to provide enough healthy red blood cells to you and your baby. This coupled with swinging hormone levels make post-partum hair loss a common struggle for many new moms.

When looking for ways to treat hair loss as a result of pregnancy you can find yourself limited, as many over-the counter treatments contain substances that are not safe to use while nursing or pregnant, as they could pose a potential risk to your baby.

KerMax uses a drug-free formula with Natural Active Ingredients that is completely safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding. It starts to work within one week providing lasting results when used as directed.


Have a beautiful day!

Are you getting enough from your daily routine?

Healthy Food

Our health is largely impacted by the nutritional quality of our diet and the efficiency of our digestion of the nutrients we eat. If we’re not getting the right nutrients, and digesting them properly for our bodies to absorb, our health is compromised and that includes scalp and hair.

However, with a few simple tweaks to your daily routine, you can give yourself the best opportunity for looking and feeling great.

Breakfast = Protein time

Your hair is made of 90% protein, so if your diet is lacking in easy-to- digest protein, your hair will suffer. ~ Heather Williams,

Breakfast is an easy time to add that protein kick that your body and hair need for the full day ahead. Eggs are the common choice, for their nutritional value, ease of use and possible combinations. However, if you aren’t a fan of eggs or just want something different, why not try a spinach and kale smoothie made with almond milk, or a Greek yogurt mixed with hemp and chia seeds. All excellent sources of protein and easy to grab and go.

Lunch = time to B5 healthy

Vitamin B5 supports the adrenal glands, which helps stimulate hair growth. ~ Dr. Josh Axe

Vitamin B5 is an essential vitamin required by the body for cellular processes and a healthy lifestyle. And while our morning routine may already include great sources of B5, such as your mushroom and cheese omelette (all three are high in B5), at lunch eating some avocado, legumes, or nuts supports a healthy intake of Vitamin B5.

Dinner = pump that Iron

Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in the U.S., and several studies have found that an iron deficiency can lead to hair loss. ~ Dr. Josh Axe

For women during the menstruating life stage it is important to include iron rich foods in your diet. This is because most of the iron is eliminated during the monthly cycle. From muscle weakness to signs of a hormone imbalance, iron plays a critical role in our bodies during this time. However, post menopausal women should consume little to no iron because iron accumulation remains in the body and is not eliminated.

So what are some dinner time foods that have iron?

Grass fed beef is a good source of iron with approximately 2 milligrams per 3 ounces. However, Liver (yes we know) is the champ with an average of 9.5 milligrams per 4 ounces. White beans, lentils, duck and even blackstrap molasses are also good sources of iron.

Remember to always consult with your physician if you have any questions or health concerns, or want advice on the best foods for your optimal health.




How to Create Plump and Sexy Lips in 3 Easy Steps

Nothing makes you feel sexier than perfectly smooth and full lips. Get your dream lips with these simple tips!

1 – Get hydrated

Lipstick or gloss will always last longer on smooth, perfectly hydrated lips! Start with a soft exfoliation, using a dry toothbrush, gently brushing your lips with it. Too hard for your lips? Add a bit of lip balm on the brush itself. Finish by applying a coat of lip balm to condition your lips (try our Collagen Lip Treatment for fuller lips in no time).

2 - Shape up!

Whether using lipstick or gloss in a light or dark colour, you should always use a liner. First, it allows you to easily enhance your natural lip line. Second, it makes lipstick last longer.

Extra tip: for dramatic volume, choose a liner one to two shades darker than the colour of your lipstick or gloss!

3 - Colour away!

Applying lipstick properly will keep it from smearing, caking or vanishing and will make your lips look even more fabulous. Start at the centre of your lips and brush the lipstick outward. Using a lipstick brush will allow for even more precision and a uniform application, allowing you to blend liner and lipstick easily.

The final touch: add a bit of gloss or a touch of a lighter coloured lipstick in the middle of your bottom lip; playing with the light is the key to glamourous lips!

Volume 5 - Spring Transformations

Spring is all about transformation – trees begin to blossom, caterpillars morph into butterflies, and you can turn into your best self! We encourage you to deep clean your life and start embracing change. This month we are changing with you. Enjoy our newsletter facelift!
Sealed with a kiss,

Club Modéle, France



Spring is in the (H)air

If there is ever a season to try out a new hairstyle, its Spring. The sweltering heat of summer often leaves hair a mess and hard to manage. What better time to practice styling your new do than Spring! Find a style that is decidedly low-maintenance and start perfecting that wash-and-wear look. Spring hair trends have finally arrived. See our tops picks below.

The Choppy Bob

Looking for a trendy, low-maintenance hair cut for summer? The Choppy Bob is perfect. Ask your stylist for a soft fringe and an A-Line shag that hits your collarbone. The grow-out is very natural on this haircut, unless you want to keep your length – no need to see your stylist!


This is a cut that any stylist should be able to pull off. It looks great with any length of hair - just be sure the layers are kept long and tailored to your texture (or it could look a little shag)! We recommend bringing in a photo of exactly what you want.

Icy Blondes

The sun naturally lightens hair, what better time to go lighter than now? Icy Blond is a combination of ashy and silver tones, staying on the cooler side of blonde. Ask your stylist for “Pale Babylights” which are baby-fine, foiled highlights in an icy shade just a little richer than platinum.

KerMax Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner are safe for natural and colour treated hair, transforming fine hair into visibly fuller looking hair. The secret to any great haircut, style and colour is a healthy base. KerMax is an effective; easy-to-use and affordable over-the-counter line of products that helps safely reverse the appearance of thinning hair and hair loss and makes new hair regrowth possible. 



Springtime calls for a simple Seasonal Detox

Spring is the perfect season for transformation (we will spare you the “caterpillar to butterfly” comparison). After being mostly indoors for the past few months, breathing in poor air quality, being exposed to less sunlight, and perhaps being less active than usual – a Spring cleanse is due!

Regular detoxes are a great way to increase energy, reduce hormonal imbalances, improve digestion, normalize blood pressure, sharpen mental ability, improve sleep, clear up skin and many other benefits.

Here are a few of our easy tips to kick start your Spring:

  • 1 - Drink lots of water with lemon: This helps to clean out your liver and prepare your system for digestion.
  • 2 - SLEEP! The body repairs over night. So it’s very important to give yourself lots of time to recuperate and rest.
  • 3 - Walk, Run, Stretch, in other words – get outside and get moving. Spending as little as 15 minutes moving can increase life expectancy by three years.**
  • 4 - Leafy Greens – an extra 1-3 handfuls a day will add substantial fibre, Vitamin C and K, Iron and Calcium to your diet.




Channel Spring Throughout the Week

The days are longer, the nights are warmer, time to finally get outside and enjoy the fresh air. By keeping a few essential products in your purse, you’ll be channeling spring throughout the week!


#1 Monday Morning Meeting

Volume 4 - Love Is In The Air




Love Is In The Air


Valentine's Day brings to mind romance, love, Valentine's cards, flowers and the colours pink and red. What does Valentine's Day remind you of and what really is the true meaning of Valentine's day?

It is known as the day of romance and named for a Christian martyr dating back to the 5th century. Having origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. Following that we had Shakespeare romanticizing it in his literary works. Handmade cards became popular in the middle ages and then in 1913 Hallmark Cards began mass producing Valentine's cards.

Since then most people see it as a day to express thoughts and feelings of love by sending romantic sentiments or pampering those they love in various ways. 

As a single lovely lady, Valentine's day is a wonderful day to take time out for yourself. Endulging in a relaxing massage, manicure, or even time away with beautiful friends enjoying a spa getaway. Whether you are a single lady, in a long-term relationship or new relationship, love is for everyone.

Volume 3 - New Year New You




10 Beauty Resolutions for 2016  


It’s a New Year and a new you! Hopefully the month of January will see you sticking to your resolutions. Typical resolutions normally include fitness goals, or learning a new sport.  We often really want to stick with them but find them to be tough even to start, even though we know it would help us to embrace improved lifestyles.


An improved beauty routine would help us to upgrade our regimens for the year ahead that we can stick with for the long year ahead. We have comprised some beauty care tips to incorporate into your everyday regimens, to help you achieve a more beautiful year ahead that you can actually stick with!


  1.      Eat better food - Avoid processed meats and foods. Eating a balanced diet which includes vegetables assists the digestive system greatly as well as your skin.
  2.      Get moving – With age pounds tend to pile on and fat burning tends to go slower. Incorporate a regular regimen whether it is walking, gardening, taking up a new sport or a simple fitness class. Movement is always good for physical and mental fitness.
  3.      Ease up on Heat tools – Want healthy hair? Well we suggest that losing the blow dryer and flat iron is a good idea once in a while. Since overusing heat tools is the biggest cause of dryness and breakage.
  4.      Moisturize your lips – Avoid chapped lips by not nibbling on them and licking them. Using a moisturizing lip balm to protect lips on sunny days and cold windy days is a great idea to protect your lips.
  5.      Use sunscreen – Sun exposure happens anywhere anytime, not only at the beach. Wearing a sunscreen daily is the best way to protect your skin from cancer and sun damage. Especially if you want to maintain a healthy skin tone and avoid sun spots.
  6.      Schedule some time to yourself – Everyone needs time to relax, decompress from everyday stress. Set time aside where you are away from technology, the daily grind and alone in your own mind. Possibly this can be achieved with a massage, meditation or a relaxing bath with a good book.
  7.      Cleanse skin before bedtime – If you are guilty of sleeping with makeup on this one is for you. Before bedtime always make sure to thoroughly cleanse your face as its pretty bad for your face. Cleansing routines can be made simple with cleansing wipes. There are many on the market which help make cleansing routines quick and easy.
  8.      Eliminate too much shampooing – Excess shampooing is not necessary. Shampoo only one to three times a week depending on your hair type. Too much shampooing removes natural oils and skin cells on your head.
  9.      Flossing teeth – Removing plaque is very important as it helps to avoid gum disease. Make sure to always floss before bedtime. There are many new flossing devices to try or just using simple dental floss does the job just fine.
  10.    Drink water – Water is important for many reasons. Avoid becoming dehydrated by keeping a bottle of water always nearby. Water helps maintain mental awareness, and healthy glowing skin.

Lip Tips - For Healthy Lips 


Beautiful healthy lips are sought after by women everywhere. We see voluptuous lips in magazines, billboards, and on our favorite celebrities. Of course we desire them as well, so here we have some tips to help plump and care for your precious lips.

  1.      Check Lip product labels – Love lip balm? If so here are the ingredients to look for. Avoid parabens and fragrances that can irritate your lips.  If you tend to get dry lips, avoid camphor and menthol as well. Ingredients to look for are - glycerin, mineral oil, aloe, lactic acid, and sorbitol.  Lanolin and beesax both soften lips instantly. Skip lip balms containing artificial flavors and sweeteners which can cause allergic reactions.
  2.      Plump up lip volume – There are lip plumping glosses for that volumizing effect which can sometimes contain cinnamon and ginger. Lucky for you our Modele Collagen Lip Treatment does a spectacular job of moisturizing and plumping your luscious lips!
  3.      Don’t smoke- Studies show smoking is linked to premature skin aging. It also accelerates skin cell damage and collagen loss which leads to wrinkles.
  4.      Slough Away dry skin - Lips can benefit from exfoliation treatments. You can do this by using a simple mixture of honey and sugar rubbed gently on your lips. New collagen is stimulated by turning over the epidermal cells. Finish by wiping lips and using a quality lip balm. 






Beat the Winter Blues


Winter days can bring energy levels down for most people and have you feeling down. Here we have listed ways you can help beat the winter blue feelings and have you feeling energized.

  1.      Get some sun – Dark days can have you experiencing seasonal affective disorder. To combat this try getting away for a sunny holiday, so you get some much needed sunlight. If a holiday is not in the cards try a daily walk outdoors.
  2.      Exercise – Exercise is effective treatment for sadness, anxiety, depression as well as stress and anger. Regular exercise between 20-60 minutes will definitely improve your mental and physical wellbeing.
  3.       Vitamin D – Lack of Vitamin D can affect endorphins levels leading to depression. Try a supplement or getting outside for a walk to take advantage of the winter sun.  
  4.      Using lightbox – Lack of light can definitely have you feeling down, experiencing anxiety and overeating. Trying a lightbox can prove effective to combat the blues, by making you feel more awake and happier.
  5.      Don’t sleep too much – Ideally you should be sleeping 7-8 hours a night. Sleeping too much can be not good. It is about a quality sleep not quantity.
  6.      Avoid Sugar and Caffeine – Sugar and caffeine can temporarily work to lift you up. Try green tea instead which also increases metabolism and try fruit instead of sugar sweets.
  7.      Eat better food – Try eating healthy proteins such as turkey, eggs, chicken, fish and nuts which turns to serotonin in the brain. Vitamin D is also in foods such as oily fish, salmon, sardines, eggs and whole grain cereals.
  8.      Loved ones – Being around loved ones and friends releases oxytocin, a feel good hormone. Make sure to make time to be around those you love which will give you a lift and take you out of the winter blues.
