Coolsculpting Results for Arms After 2 Treatments

Post written by me for Cosmeticare. All opinions are my own.  As we age, our bodies keep changing, and it’s not always for the best. Now that I’m in my forties and my kids are older, I have been thinking more about me and how to take better care of myself. I’ve already had a few work done over the past three years, but there is always room for more body sculpting. You can read more about it on my blog, just search for “Cosmeticare”. What I’ve come to realize is that there is no one-for-all treatments so you have to target them all individually. Going under the knife is … READ MORE

Results – ClearLift Laser Treatment for Surgical Scars

All of us have unwanted scars that we have for life but many of us don’t know we can treat the look of our scars. Cosmeticare’s Medspa offers various laser treatments that I’ve explored recently to reduce the redness and appearance of scars.

She handed me some safety glasses and went to work right away. I was … READ MORE

Cosmeticare – Coolsculpting for Upper Arms Update

Post written by me for Cosmeticare. All opinions are my own.  I’ve mentioned a few times that I was considering more body-sculpting. An area that has been bothering me are the back of my arms. I have been covering them up with sleeves, and would like to wear sleeveless again if possible. I’ve had consultations at Cosmeticare, and a few weeks ago, I DID IT! I tried Coolsculpting®!

Valvoline Instant Oil Change: Wipe Out Breast Cancer with Pink Wipers!

I partnered with Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC) for this project, however, opinions here are my own. If you’re starting to see pink wipers on vehicles, it’s all for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every year in October, we start to see a lot of pink to remind us that it affects a lot of women, and we ourselves need to do routine check-ups. Some men get it too. They are saying every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer AND 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. With alarming numbers like that, we all know at least one person battling breast cancer. My one … READ MORE

prAna Sustainable Clothing Movement – Why Organic Cotton Matters

This post is written by me for prAna. All opinions are my own. It’s a gorgeous morning in Newport Beach, California. It was a little chilly in the morning so I brought out my new fall gear from prAna. Did you know that they only use Organic Cotton? Before prAna, I didn’t even know what that means. prAna cares about where their cotton comes from, because they not only care about the environment, they care about the farmers and their makers. Organic cotton is not only better for the environment in so many ways, the farmers are not exposed to harmful pesticides and chemicals, but the cotton also drinks less … READ MORE

Cosmeticare: Why Choose Coolsculpting

Post written by me for Cosmeticare. All opinions are my own.  Now that I’m in my forties, I’ve been thinking a lot about self-care and ways to look my best.
