Stylish Tresses for Tots
Introducing Le Baby Inc., Hair Gel Designed for Babies & Children
Well, move over ladies - there is a new class of style trailblazers that are landing on the top of today’s “Best Dressed” lists. But you won’t find them on the red carpet or on the runways. Instead Hollywood’s latest fashion A-listers are at the playgrounds and on playdates. Little tots like Suri Cruise and Kingston Rossdale are being hailed as the next best thing of their generation in terms of style. Celebrity kids are sporting rocker chic Mohawks, bohemian-cool shags and posh bobs causing stylists to acclaim them as today’s hairstyle icons.

“Today's fashionable parents think of their children as extensions of themselves,” says Tami Dimmerman, mother of two and creator of Le Baby Inc., a hypoallergenic hair gel designed especially for babies, kids and anyone with sensitive skin. “Today’s modern kids need to look just as fashionable and stylish as their cool moms and dads. Hairstyles have become a way of self-expression for kids and remind others that they have their own personalities.”

Not Just For Toddlers & Tiaras

Le Baby hair gel is a styling gel free of harsh chemicals meant to define wispy curls and tackle unruly after-nap hair. While the concept of baby hairstyling products might seem a little child-beauty-pageant to some, for many moms and dads it’s a must-have diaper bag accessory. From taming those wild fly-aways to smoothing frizzies, Le Baby hair gel works on all hair types and is hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. Whatever your child’s hair type,

Le Baby will make combing and styling a cinch. The unique formulas leave hair shiny, healthy looking and more manageable. Retail Cost: $9.95

No parabens No sulfates
Not tested on animals Fragrance-free
Thickens baby-fine hair Tames frizzies & fly-aways
Moisturizes Softly holds curls

Aminogenesis Tripeptinon™ It’s Like a Facelift in a Capsule
Retail Price: $79.00
Tripeptinon™ is an incredible new technology actually designed to lift, firm and strengthen facial connective tissues giving your skin the most youthful appearance possible. While many skin care products try and address the surface issues of the skin, the support and connective tissues have been totally neglected by these other products. Tripeptinon™ combines three powerful anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-sagging technologies in each single application capsule!

1) Ceramide 2: The connective tissue of your skin can be damaged by the sun, wind and other environmental factors. Once this occurs the skin begins to sag, wrinkle and may look prematurely aged. This wonder nutrient penetrates rapidly to bolster and strengthen crucial skin connective tissues to improve the appearance of sagging, discoloration, dryness, and other signs of aging.

2) Ubiquinone: The most powerful antioxidant in the world. Its ability to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging are legendary!

3) Amino-acid Ogliopetides: Clinical trials revealed this amino acid complex actually triggers the skin’s own collagen making and repair mechanism to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, often caused by sun damage.

Tripeptinon™ comes in a 40 day treatment cycle. Each capsule breaks open easily and contains the recommended amount for best results. Apply once a day to your face and neck at bedtime and wake up to younger, more radiant looking skin...

o This nourishing and hydrating eye gel is superb for softening the delicate areas surrounding the eyes.

New to the skin care market, PHYTO-C Skin Care introduces a powerful line of products containing one of the most clinically effective antioxidants – Liquid Vitamin C, or L-Ascorbic Acid.

Skincare can’t be mentioned without the name Dr. Mostafa Omar, creator of PHYTO-C and pioneer of stabilized liquid Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid). According to Dr. Omar, “Liquid Vitamin C is one of the most efficient antioxidants. Clinical studies have proved that it is the only material which can penetrate the skin, then capture and neutralize free radicals. It can protect our skin against environmental damage such as UV rays and pollution, and can stimulate the creation of collagen, which enhances skin tissue for firmer, fairer and brighter skin.”

The Benefits of L-Ascorbic Acid

Antioxidants work by neutralizing oxygen free radicals, which damage and destroy the skin. L-Ascorbic Acid can effectively neutralize free radicals caused by UV rays or other external factors. Its anti-inflammatory properties allow it to help repair skin cells and tissue damaged by free radicals.

When the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light, measurements show that two-thirds of L-Ascorbic Acid in the skin is destroyed. Scientists believe that L-Ascorbic Acid’s role as an antioxidant is essential in protecting the skin from oxidative damage produced by ultraviolet light exposure. It is believed that free radicals can damage collagen, elastic, proteoglycan and cell membranes.

In combination with Hyaluronic acid, L-Ascorbic Acid activates enzymes that stabilize and maintain collagen structure. L-Ascorbic Acid is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase collagen production; which improves tissue strength and the skin’s appearance.

These days, it’s easy to fall into bad skin habits. Between stress from work, our love lives, and even the harsh weather – we tend to let our skin care regimens slip away. However, there is good news for all those who are experiencing signs of premature aging. By avoiding a few bad skin habits and taking preventative action, we can help delay the natural aging process and thwart many skin care problems.

Bad Skin Habit:

* Over-Exfoliating
Although exfoliating scrubs and chemicals like alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and retinoids (including retinol, Retin-A and Renova) can eliminate dull, dead cells on the skin's surface, frequent sloughing can leave your skin irritated. Harsh cleansers or over-exfoliation can actually exacerbate oil production and worsen breakouts by spreading bacteria.

Good Skin Habit:

* Using a Gentle Daily Cleanser
Cleansing is a vital component of any skincare routine. Sothys Morning Cleanser gets rid of the oil without over-cleansing. Formulated for both men and women, this extra gentle cleanser with sweet almond oil, shea butter and chamomile extract purifies all skin types. Apply on moist skin morning or evening for an oil-free, mild yet deep-action cleanse. Price: $29

Bad Skin Habit:

* Staying Up Late
During sleep, the body repairs damage from the day. Interrupting that process will slow down cell turnover causing stress and aggravating all skin conditions, including acne, eczema and psoriasis. Only a few sleepless nights can interrupt blood flow to the skin, making the complexion sallow.

Good Skin Habit:

* Applying a Weekly Face Mask
Adding a weekly face mask to your beauty regimen will significantly improve skin’s health and appearance. Sothys Hydra-Protective Vitality Mask is a dual-action cleansing, normalizing mask for all skin types. Plant-based complexes mattify and detoxify skin, while witch hazel provides astringent properties and corn germ oil moisturizes. Its comfortable "powdery" texture leaves the skin looking bright and healthy. Price: $27

Bad Skin Habit:
· Drinking Too Much Alcohol

Drinking can accelerate sagging of the skin by increasing the level of inflammatory agents in the bloodstream. Alcohol dehydrates your skin and widens blood vessels causing your skin to look red or blotchy. Drink in moderation or your skin will suffer.

Good Skin Habit:

* Using a Daily Defense Face Cream
Get the most out of your face care products by using a cream that both hydrates and protects. Sothys Hydra-Protective Protective Cream uses natural corn grains to stimulate skin cell regeneration. Using it day and night will comfort the skin and counter minor imperfections. This rich, soothing cream enhanced with Divatonyl helps improve your skin’s elasticity by keeping a perfect balance of moisture. Price: $35

The key to having healthy skin is to implement a basic skin care regime. Skin care is not a difficult job. All you need is a few minutes a day and some diligence. Practice good skin habits and you can make sure your skin stays healthy and flawless. Sothys products guarantee vibrant skin with the use of gentle, but effective products.
