life plankton elixir from biotherm

The promise of Life Plankton Elixir from Biotherm? To help protect, reinforce and regenerate the skin in 8 days. This miracle serum is the result of 30 years of research based on a natural “life plankton” considered a champion of skin renewal. Adapted to all skin type, even the most sensitives, the Life Plankton Elixir gives a boost to the skin—affected by daily aggressions including pollution, stress, and various oxidative and inflammatory factors—to help promote skin revitalization. This new Biotherm treatment is made from a crucial ingredient base that puts it ahead of other products: It improves and strengthens skin that has exhausted its auto-renewal powers. Life Plankton Elixir acts quickly, penetrating with ease, and leaving skin glowing, refreshed, and with an more youthful appearance in just 8 days! Too good to…

Fresh Starts is our main coverline this issue because—despite what calendar makers, astrology books and organizing articles tell us—we all know that September is really the month that means renewal, refreshment and reinvention. Perhaps it harks back to our school days, when pristine notebooks, crayons and, potentially, a bedazzled pencil case marked the onset of a season full of possibilities. Add to that a roster of new classmates and the unveiling of the latest fall fashions and we had an opportunity presented to us every year to become a whole new version of ourselves. That sense of beginning anew at this time of year is no less impactful in the later stages of our lives. We still feel a (sometimes) subtle nudge during the last days of August that stirs us…

14 tricks, tips and ideas we love this month

1 WONDER WEAVE Turkish towels, also known as peshtemals, feel incredible and actually get better over time. Defying all laws of logic, the unique Turkish weave becomes softer and more absorbent with every wash, making these towels well worth the investment. Our current obsession is the collection from House of Jude—a Canadian brand that ethically produces all their towels, throws, scarves and robes in Turkey. 2 Pampered Peds It’s time to take care of the tootsies that have walked us to work, propelled us through lakes and pools and allowed us to play in the park this summer. Take a cue from the Lanna spa at Thailand’s Anantara Golden Triangle Resort and fill a basin with warm water, then add some fresh flowers and soak away the stresses of the day. Lanna resort SPA,…

In our humble opinion, a holiday in Asia should be on every Canadian’s list of dream trips to take.

I grew up surrounded by beauty products—literally. When I was young, my mom worked from home as a beauty consultant, and bottles, tubes and jars of enticing potions held court on our dining table. Besides being some of the tools of artistry and selfexpression, I learned early on that the contents of a makeup bag carry the inherent power of transformation, and that cosmetics can have a major impact. “I learned early on that the contents of a makeup bag carry the inherent power of transformation.” This is why my must-have product has always been mascara. You see, in their natural state, my lashes are nothing to brag about. The follicular magic responsible for my big hair doesn’t extend to my lashes. When left untouched, my eyelashes are short and sparse, with…
