How important is nutrition for your health and beauty regimen?
I’ve found that proper nutrition is extremely important for your health and beauty regimen. I recommend taking high-quality supplements, such as Nature Made Vitamelts, which melt smoothly in your mouth and give you an irresistibly melty experience, when you take your vitamins. the newest addition to the line is Nature Made VitaMelts Hair, Skin and Nails. It is formulated with biotin, which may help support healthy hair, skin and nails. It is also contains vitamin C, which supports collagen production. It comes in a delicious, natural strawberry lemonade flavor.

How do we determine what color is right for us?
I tend to look for lipstick colors that have a blue undertone. This undertone helps makes the teeth look whiter. Darker shades like a deep red can also help brighten your smile. Warming up the face with a bronzer is another tip to make your skin look healthy during the fall and winter months.
