Can Ultrasound Improve the Look of Skin?

I'll be honest, I was not very familiar with the world of cosmetic ultrasound treatments when I decided to try the Mira-Skin Ultrasound device.

Stella McCartney Precious Body Cream

stella-mccartney-precious-bStella McCartney continues to grow her beauty and fashion empire. Of recent note, a collection of kids clothes for the Gap in addition to her fashion and accessory collections, Adidas by Stella McCartney, and her line for H & M in 2005. I too am a fan! I adore my gorgeous Stella McCartney cashmere sweater in addition to my precious jar of “Precious” Body Cream (Stella McCartney Precious Body Cream, 7 oz. $67.00 at Nordstrom). I’d have to say this body cream is a luxury and worth every penny. The jar itself is very heavy and is a work of art in itself. The purple glass jar glows on the mantle in my bedroom. I don’t wear the cream every day; I save the Precious body cream for special evenings out. During the day I wear Kai body lotion.  Read more
