Yes, believe it or not, I am back to work! I had a terrific time in Colombia.

Happy Chinese New Year! February 7th is Chinese New Year - This is the Year of the Rat (my sign!) We Rats tend to be charming and aggressive. We tend to be successful in whatever we do. We Rats can never hide when we are upset. We become very edgy, nervous and a little nagging. Our biggest fault is that we try to do too much. (No! You don't say!)

Be sure to wear red for good luck that day!

Question of the Day: My lips are so dry and cracked, what do I do?

This is a Heal your dry lipsrough time of the year for dry, cracked lips. This could be caused by a few different things:

  • You could be dehydrated. Most of us forget to drink enough water when it is colder so try to get your water intake up. The air is drier from the heat so a humidifier is a good idea.
  • Use a gentle exfoliator like sugar on the lips and then apply a lip balm rich in shea butter, Vitamin E and other natural oils like Jojoba, Sweet Almond etc.
  • Be sure to stop licking your lips! This aggravates the problem by drying them out more.
  • Sun and cold weather can also destroy your nice soft lips so be sure to always sun protection on your lips.
  • Some long lasing lip polishes can also cause dry, cracked lips. You may need to take a break every few days from long lasting polishes.
  • You may also want to speak to a Nutritionalist - you could be low in Vitamin B.

Colorescience also makes a wonderful Lip Polish Remover that is a great gentle exfoliator and then you can use our lip serum to hydrate. Purchase a Lip Serum for $25 and receive a FREE Lip Polish Remover through the month of February and only while supplies last.

Resolve to Pamper Yourself this Year - At Home, Too!

Open Your Heart for Love - All of us have had hurt feelings from family, friends and significant others. Some of us hold onto things longer then we should. Use the formula below to help release those feelings so you can receive love during this month of love and romance. Take 20-30 minutes of quiet time to reflect on the people and hurt feelings that you need to let go of and relax.

Open your heart for loveYou can apply this formula to your wrists, upper chest and the back of the neck. Be sure to take deep breaths to inhale these powerful vapors.

  • Orange 2 drops
  • Rose 2 drops
  • Champaca Flower 1 drop (I think that this smells terrible but it is an awesome oil. I use it in a sleeping potion and it knocks me right out. Although this is a sleeping oil for me it is not for everyone.)
  • Carrier Oil 1 teaspoon (such as Sweet Almond or Jojoba oil)

You can also make a Mist Spray and spray several times over your head with your eyes closed and breath in deeply.

  • Spearmint 60 drops
  • Gingergrass 50 drops
  • Vanilla 30 drops
  • Cedarwood (Atlas) 10 drops
  • Pure Water 4 ounces (120 ml)
