Barcelona is the city on everyone's bucket list, and is known as "the city of marvels" for its architecture, arts, natural beauty and endless tapas... perhaps also because it is the hometown of one of our favorite skincare brands, Natura Bissé. While this is a tourist-favorite destination and guidebooks abound, locals know the best places to visit. We asked José Villegas, Natura Bissé's C.O.O., to give us his personal guide to a perfect day in the city.
Dermatologist Noëlle Sherber, M.D., F.A.A.D. was quoted in the Washingtonian about the increasing trend for men to get filler in their jawlines. She said, “People in Washington want to have an authoritative appearance, but one that suits their own face. They tend to be most of all interested in how to look like themselves a few years prior.”
Jaw-defining filler products are on the rise as the procedure gets more popular. Voluma is a filler made from smooth hyaluronic acid. Filler for male jawlines has been gaining in popularity because it can restore men’s confidence in their appearance by turning back the clock a few years – with no downtime. 50-year-old DC interior designer Paul Sherrill, a patient of Dr. Sherber’s, said, “It really to me has been a wow effect. It’s one of those things that I’m left with immediate gratification.”
Dr. Sherber explained a factor behind the rising popularity of male jaw fillers. “It can look like you have jowls along the face when you don’t in real life. I’ll have patients bring screen shots of how they look on camera and say, ‘What is happening with my face and neck?’”Continue reading
Dermatologist Noëlle S. Sherber, M.D., F.A.A.D. was quoted in Harper’s Bazaar in an article on how to make the most of facial injectables. Dr. Sherber recommended incorporating moisturizers with glycerin and hyaluronic acid prior to injections, since it will “dovetail off the internal hydrating effects of the injected hyaluronic acid fillers and enhance the skin-smoothing results of Botox."
Dr. Sherber also recommended caution with certain medications before injecting: “I advise my patients to discontinue non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, as well as fish oil supplements and the four Gs—gingko, ginger, garlic, and ginseng—two weeks prior to the procedure unless medically necessary.”
Salt is a huge no-no, especially with dermal fillers. Dr. Sherber said, "Injectable fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which pulls in water, so loading up on salty foods beforehand can make you look more swollen the day after your procedure.”Continue reading
This duo is our favorite for creating the perfect red lip.
Verso Lip Serum plumps lips on contact by super-hydrating them. Dermatologist Dr. Noëlle Sherber added this to our edit of lip treatments because "this silky balm plumps with hyaluronic acid without relying on irritants as many other formulas do. Retinyl retinoate, a modern formulation of retinol, also stimulates collagen to build density and plush volume in the lips over time, so you get both instant and longterm results."
TOM FORD Lip Color has become an iconic formulation because its specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color, and it is ultra-creamy due to a moisturizing mix of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and Chamomilla flower oil. Our makeup artist in residence, Enrique Valentino, calls Cherry Lush "the perfect festive, and smile-brightening, shade." It is our go-to for the perfect red lip for the holidays.
