Quick Tips to Stay Fresh in Summer
Lesley Nagy: And welcome back and thanks for joining us for our Hot Topics. Our Better’s beauty expert Jennifer Walsh is here to share her tips with us. And you know, I think the first hot topic I remember is that Jillian Michaels is starting her new show Losing It With Jillian.
Jennifer Walsh: Yeah.
Lesley Nagy: And instead of you know, she’s very famous for being on the Biggest Loser, helping people lose weight but this is a non- competition show.
Jennifer Walsh: I like that.
Lesley Nagy: I think she seems more personal and just kind of coming in because she’s great on her show but this is going to be different for her, I think.
Jennifer Walsh: And do you think it’ll teach people more how to do a day-to-day thing?
Lesley Nagy: Yes, I think it’s a great idea because she’s so powerful. She’s so charismatic at what she does. I mean, people are drawn to her just to watch her do what she does. I think it’s great to kind of go into the homes and see what people are eating so that other people can learn how to eat at home and they can exercise without going to the gym and do different things in their own surroundings, I think.
Jennifer Walsh: It is difficult when you get back to your own environment. I mean, I watch the Biggest Loser and you don’t know what happens when they get off the ranch.
Lesley Nagy: No. Because I always went like what do they do or how are they doing it? You know, a few weeks later or 10 weeks later, I think it’s a great idea, I love it.
Jennifer Walsh: I like her, I mean she has a lot of things in the market now too because she’s lost weight herself. So she’s been there, done that so I like the fact the she has experience to help people out.
Lesley Nagy: That is so true. I think it’s going to be her biggest selling point because she gets it. She understands. So, she can really communicate just understanding like I know what it’s like, I’ve been there. So, that’s a great point because I totally understand that.
Jennifer Walsh: Do you do anything to keep in shape and healthy?
Lesley Nagy: I love to. I used to run a lot of marathons. I've done half ironman races. Since the past years, I haven’t because my knees are in really bad shape. So now, I had to scale back and really learn how not to workout as they way I used to. But I love just run and swim and do yoga and fun stuff like that. How about you?
Jennifer Walsh: I love my yoga. But you know, I know it’s summer and I want a touch on because you’re a beauty expert, what are some quick tips that you have to keep in your bag for your makeup and your hair do when everything’s all sweaty, it's hot nowadays. How can we look fresh?
Lesley Nagy: It’s true. Just like the simples and not to pile it on and keep things as minimum as possible. You can just use a lip gloss with an SPF 15. Even there are some things called rice papers that you can get at Wall Greens or CBS or your local drug store, that could be more from $2.00 and up because even big brands will make rice paper but what you do is your not adding powder to your face, you’re just taking the oil away.
Jennifer Walsh: Yeah, you know when you use tissue, it gets all over your face.
Lesley Nagy: Yes, it’s a blotting paper and that’s exactly—and then you use like a waterproof mascara and that’s really all you need, just something really simple.
Jennifer Walsh: A waterproof mascara and a blotting paper and that’s it for the summer bag?
Lesley Nagy: And just little lip gloss, yeah, a little lip gloss and always have your water. Always stay hydrated!
Jennifer Walsh: Well, there you go, keep healthy and fit. Yeah.
Lesley Nagy: There you go.
Jennifer Walsh: And keep your water with you and beauty products.
Lesley Nagy: I think so, that will work.
Jennifer Walsh: What’s the most unusual question that people ask you about beauty?
Lesley Nagy: Oh, it’s always how do we put fake lashes on and then different—I guess so many different questions depending on if someone’s pregnant or depending on age like some women, I had recently a woman asked me, she was in her late 70’s, saying, “Well, the face creams aren’t working. I’m still getting wrinkles.” So at that point, you think, “Well you know what? It’s okay. You’re almost 80, you have beautiful skin. You’re taking care of yourself.” I don’t think she’ll be worrying about wrinkles anymore. But it’s funny because women really think that they should be not getting wrinkles as they get older. It’s a natural part of the process so—
Jennifer Walsh: I recommend like an SPF like tinted moisturizer.
Lesley Nagy: That’s a great product. I’m so glad you said that because that’s a perfect for this time of year. Just keep it light. An SPF tinted moisturizer is very light and perfect for this time of year.
Jennifer Walsh: Perfect! What about for the rest of the body?
Lesley Nagy: I’m so glad you said that because so many products are now infusing an SPF in their body cream. So, I think it’s really important. I want everyone, no matter what your age or what kind of nationality, you should always, always have sunscreen. So in the morning, put it on even if it’s in a body lotion or your makeup, make sure you have any kind of SPF on your face, your décolleté, you neck and also put it on the body as well.
Jennifer Walsh: Yeah, they’ll definitely be prepared.
Lesley Nagy: Absolutely.
Jennifer Walsh: We appreciate your tips. Thank you so much again for joining us.
