1. LANCER Microcurrent Power Boost Device (Nordstrom Exclusive)

A FIRST-OF-ITS KIND TOOL: Designed to optimize the skin’s electrical potential while gently massaging facial muscles and stimulating the deep layers of the skin, where collagen and new skin cells are produced.

How to Use: Glide over the contours of your face and neck. Each glide should be about 5 seconds long. Repeat 3 times in each area. For specific target areas, hold the device in a stationary position for 5 seconds. Treat the affected area for up to 10 minutes. Rinse after each use and dry with a cloth. Use daily or as needed.

2. me smooth Hair Removal Device

PRO RESULTS/AT-HOME CONVENIENCE: Me is the only at-home hair-removal device to use patented elos technology, which is clinically proven and FDA-cleared to be safe and effective for all skin types.

How to Use: To prepare the skin for a me treatment, first you need to remove the hair from the surface of your skin by shaving or waxing. This will ensure that the elos energy is focused on the hair follicles beneath the surface for optimal efficacy.

3. CLARISONIC ‘Opal’ Sonic Infusion System

THE 30-SECOND EYE LIFT: Opal helps infuse serum more effectively than manual application for younger-looking eyes. Just 30 seconds around each eye immediately firms, hydrates and refreshes skin.

How to Use: Following the rim of bone outlining the eye area, gently glide the applicator tip over the skin using small, overlapping circular motions. Do not use on the soft tissue under the eye or on the eyelids. The sonic infuser will automatically turn off after 30 seconds. Gently tap any remaining serum into the skin using your ring finger. Apply additional serum to the applicator tip and repeat on your other eye.

Since my recent re-lo to Seattle, I’ve discovered there’s no need to get away during the summer. With the sun finally shining on nearby mountains, lakes, beaches, waterfalls and brilliantly blooming backyards, a Northwest staycation hands-down beats the hassles of long-distance travel. And while I love getting back to nature, I do have my limits with going au natural; luckily, I’ve found the perfect, portable beauty companions for each of my favorite staycation destinations.

Boating on Lake Washington. When you’re jumping in and out of the water, you need makeup that’s waterproof and towel-proof, like stila lip crush lip & cheek stain. This amazing product reacts with the pH levels of your skin to create a perfectly natural and unique pop of color that stays put, and the brush on the pen makes application a breeze. My favorite water-sporting color: Pomegranate Crush.

Camping near Mt. Rainier. My husband always challenges me to get everything I need into one backpack, so multipurpose items are a must. The answer to all of my skin needs (healthy, protected, natural-looking) comes neatly packaged in one tube of Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35. This wilderness wonder product covers and smoothes imperfections, provides an anti-aging serum and protects with a higher SPF. The silky formula is a treat when I’m roughing it.

Hiking on the Olympic Peninsula. When you finally reach the summit or waterfall, it’s nice to look (and feel) fresh for a picnic and your Instagram-worthy pictures. To keep sweat at bay, I always carry a few packets of DERMAdoctor MED e TATE Hyperhidrosis Control Wipes. Specially medicated for extra sweating, this handy product can still be used on your face, underarms and even your feet, and helps you stay drier on any trek.

A day at Alki Beach. Sunscreen is a no-brainer, but I also like to keep my hair from looking like it’s been through a hurricane. Salt water is so drying, and the breezes from Puget Sound can whip tresses into a frizzy tangle—unless you come prepared with a leave-in conditioner in your beach bag. My favorite: B. the Product Leave It In Conditioner. This lifesaver doesn’t weigh down even fine, thin hair like mine, and the spray pump helps the product reach your head instead of blowing in the wind. It’s great for kids’ hair too, and makes comb-out time much less painful.

Spa time at home. Why deal with traffic when you can simply lie back in the tub with a good book, a glass of Washington wine and some Aveda Stress-fix Soaking Salts? With lavender and sage essences infusing mineral-rich salt and sugar, this total-body indulgence is my go-to remedy for relaxing and unwinding—especially after days spent hiking, camping, boating and playing on the beach. (Sometimes I need a staycation after my staycation…)

I hope wherever you live, you’ll take some summer staycation days of your own. A little downtime is one of the best beauty treatments out there!

If your feet have been ‘roughing’ it through the winter, treat them to a soothing home spa. From foot exfoliators that renew rough soles to creams that soften cracked dry skin, put your feet first with moisture-charged products.

New York-based Podiatrists Dr. Neal Houslanger and Dr. Matthew Kassnove, share a few of their top foot care dos and don’ts tips:

“DO:
• Yearly professional checkups
• Check for cracks, sores and painful reddened areas
• Trim toenails straight across (don’t cut into the corners)
• Wash feet in warm not hot water
• Dry feet well, especially between the toes (blot dry, do not rub)
• Apply cream to your feet (avoiding between the toes)
• Wear comfortable well-fitting shoes and socks
• Shop for shoes later in the day since feet swell by then
• Orthotic wearers should have them checked professionally every 6 months
• Walk as it’s the best exercise for the feet. Most Americans log 75,000 miles on their feet by the time they reach the age of 50

DON’T
• Walk barefoot–even indoors or around pools and beaches–the feet need protection
• Trim corns and calluses with a razor
• Use over-the-counter medicated corn and callus removers which may cause skin burns
• Wear the same pair of orthotics for more than 5 years.”

There’s no time like the present to treat your feet!
