spring to life

Are you ready yet? At Canadian Living, we’re beyond tired of the madness that is a Canadian winter. But while spring is on the horizon, it’s a certainty that there’s at least one last gasp yet in Old Man Winter. The anticipation of the holiday season has nothing on our wait for him to relinquish our surroundings to Mother Nature’s more benificent hands, so that she can colour our world with the delicate shades of burgeoning blossoms and verdant leaves. With this issue, we’re saying a subtle “shake a leg” to spring and prepping for the season of renewal. In our Fashion & Beauty section, we’re featuring masks to rejuvenate every skin type and get rid of that pallid complexion that’s all too visible when we look in the mirror right…

island idyll

1 Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With its crystal-clear waters and white sandy beaches, the island of Barbados is a little corner of paradise. Home to 110 kilometres of free beachfront, some spots, like Bottom Bay, are regularly ranked among the most beautiful beaches in the world. What’s so wonderful about this country is that there are two very different types of landscapes from one coast to the other. To the west, Barbados is bordered by the Caribbean Sea, which makes for an ideal place to go to enjoy a quiet day under the shade of a coconut tree—a picture-perfect tropical postcard setting. It’s also on this side of the island that you’ll find the most luxurious hotels and resorts. On the east is a real change of scenery,…

1, 2, 3, rejuvenate

APPLICATIONS THE CLASSIC MASK Made of a cream, oil or gel, these masks have the texture of a moisturizer or serum, but unlike those products, these masks aren’t made to stay on the face all day or even be used daily. The combination of highly concentrated active ingredients visibly purifies, soothes and hydrates the skin after a short period. THE PEEL MASK With a sticky, elastic texture, the peel-off mask adheres to the skin and forms a laminated film after a few minutes. When lifted, it removes dead skin cells, blackheads, excess sebum and other impurities, leaving the skin’s surface smoother, softer and healthy-looking. THE PATCH Targeting delicate facial areas with thin skin, these compresses made from paper, hydrogel or bio-cellulose, are infused with antiaging and thirst-quenching active ingredients. They remain in place so that by…
