Cool Summer Skin with Paprika Hot Stimulating Peel!

File this under bright ideas.  On a 90-plus degree afternoon in New York City Everything She Wants visited Cecilia Wong Skincare (215 Park Avenue) for a 30-minute Paprika Hot Stimulating Peel ($100), made with paprika, red pepper and cayenne pepper.

The peel tingled a bit and my face did feel hot initially. But the pepper mixture helps to stimulate the skin and improve circulation.  It also plumps and hydrates, so I knew it would be worth a little discomfort.  After she applied the peel, Cecilia gave me a LED Light Therapy treatment.  She used a blue light, which kills bacteria, unclogs pores and to help fades acne scars.

Although it sounds like it would have the opposite effect, the peel actually made my face cooler the rest of the day. After every treatment with Cecilia, I can instantly see and feel the results.  Her passion for skin care began at an early age because of her own problem skin.  And she discovered that consuming and using organic ingredients on the skin will keep us healthy inside and out.

I love that Cecilia Wong Skincare uses organic products infused with botanicals and herbs, and the salon recently launched a holistic skin care line.

  1. I never thought that paprika can stimulates the skin for a rosy glow. Hope to find a saloon here that offers the same treatment. Would have been lovely to see a picture of you after your treatment.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic? If you are looking for a probiotic to  take every day, try a multi-strain probiotic starting with 5-10 billion CFU,  and see how it works for you. CFU's, or  colony forming units  are used to measure probiotics potency. CFU’s can range from 1 billion up to 100 billion.  The best time to take a probiotic supplem

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t
