Audra Lowe: We all want to look our best in that hot summer sun but in order to keep our makeup from melting and our hair from frizzing we have to make some necessary tweaks to the beauty routine. You know you got to do it. So, beauty expert Ereka Vitrini is here with some high-tech products that are going to make the routine faster, cheaper and much more efficient especially during the hot scorching months.
Ereka Vitrini: So my first product that I really want to talk to you about is the TRIA laser. It was the first FDA cleared laser hair removal system approved for home use. So all of those great benefits that you get at the dermatologist’s office, you can now get at home.
Audra Lowe: Is it easy to use them?
Ereka Vitrini: Oh, it is so simple to use. They really made sure that most of it is automatic. So you have a skin sensor that make sure that you can safely use it and then all you do is press it against your skin and it's automatic. That’s all that you have to do.
Audra Lowe: Shear off half my leg; I just want to make sure it's easy to use.
Ereka Vitrini: It is and the good thing about this too is the same scientist and engineers that created the original laser hair removal system that dermatologists use created this. So you can trust them. That’s how I feel.
Audra Lowe: Okay, yeah it looks very high-tech. I like that. We’re going to move on to the hair though because especially today, it's very humid outside. The frizzy has come out. It's miserable.
Ereka Vitrini: It is the number one. Humidity is the number factor that contributes to frizziness. So this product was smartly named, No Frizz by Living Proof. Again, it's a group of scientists who realized that most products, the anti-frizz products on the market had silicone in it. That’s not effective. It's oily and heavy. So they came up with this molecule called polyfluoroester, it sounds complicated but really all it does is protect and shield your hair from humidity.
Audra Lowe: Because it needs to be protected. People forget that all the time.
Ereka Vitrini: It does and the great thing about this product too is that it also it's kind of shielding your hair from the dirt as well so your hair is cleaner and longer.
Audra Lowe: I like that one.
Ereka Vitrini: And it works. I love this product.
Audra Lowe: When it comes to tanning, do you always say what is a real suntan equals real aging?
Ereka Vitrini: Exactly.
Audra Lowe: So you got to stay out of the sun but these are gloves right?
Ereka Vitrini: okay, the great part about this is Dr. Denise, who is a scientist and a dermatologist, she’s a doctor and a scientist and she created these glow younger self-tanning gloves. So not only are you getting a self-tan but it's also anti-aging. It's going to diminish the fine lines and wrinkles and firm your skin. The glove makes it really easy to apply because I don’t know about you but when I apply a self tanner, I'm a mess.
Audra Lowe: And it's all over the place.
Ereka Vitrini: Yes, the gloves make it simple and easy and clean.
Audra Lowe: And then going with that, we have to have SPF. This is your favorite.
Ereka Vitrini: I love it. It's the skin that’s environmental defense SPF 50. It's long lasting. It's got something called a UV Proflex which evenly distributes the sunscreen so that you don’t miss anything. You want to be fully protected.
Audra Lowe: Yeah, and one of the things that you and I are so much alike because we hate sitting for the weekly pedicure. Some people say “it's a great day”, I hate it. I don’t have the patience to do this. So there are two products here that you recommend.
Ereka Vitrini: Okay first, I just love the Ped Egg. I mean, easy, easy, it's a foot file. It's going to get all the calluses off so you don’t have to go there and deal with it all the time. Get a pedicure and let it last for more then just a week. Then, my favorite new company it’s called Mission Skin care. Again, scientists and pro athletes like Mia Hamm and Serena Williams have teamed up with engineers to create this skin care line. This is their foot therapy. It has vitamins and antioxidants that are just going to kind of calm and soothe your feet.
Audra Lowe: With their backing, that says a lot.
Ereka Vitrini: It does.
Audra Lowe: Thanks a lot Ereka. Now, let’s talk about—
