Holiday Travel Beauty Tips from Sjal Skincare


Holiday season is the peak travel season.  And hurried trips by planes, trains and automobiles can take a toll on your skin.  To help us look refreshed while we’re on the road, sjal skincare co-founder and beauty expert Kristin Petrovich offers Everything She Wants five helpful travel beauty tips.

Sjal skincare co-founder, Kristin Petrovich.
1. Before you travel: Drink green tea to detoxify and water to keep body hydrated. Lysine is a great amino acid that increases white blood cells, boosting the immune system. Apply a serum and oil/moisturizer to the skin such as the sjal kura intuitif. Use a light makeup and eye cream like sjal's orbe eye cream, which can also be applied around your mouth.

2. Different Climates, Different Products: Depending on what kind of climate you are traveling to, your skin will need a different regimen and products to adapt. In cold weather, use an oil (sjal's saphir concentrate); a heavy moisturizer like sjal's kura intuitif can also reduce redness. In high altitude, apply a light layer of sjal's serum 1 before the moisturizer. In hot weather, use a serum, light moisturizer and sunscreen.

3. What to Pack: A light moisturizer such as the sjal cela intuitif is a must. Always pack sunscreen; SPF can even protect you from the light entering through the window of a plane. Travel kits make life easier--try the sjal wanderlust travel set (everything is TSA-approved). A sweater and a light scarf are always nice to have on hand, or bring a larger shawl that can double as a blanket. Sunglasses are a must, as well as ballet flats. And don’t forget to bring a book, tablet or laptop to help pass time, melatonin to avoid the affects of jet-lag, and a large bag that fits everything. 

4. After Traveling: Get some fresh air, take a walk and exercise.  A massage or acupuncture treatment can help to restore your body, and helps with jet lag. Use a mask such as the sjal kashmir saphir mask to rebalance the skin. A monitored diet also helps to eliminate toxins. Fruits and vegetables work as an internal cleanser. Try to avoid dairy which can congest the body and skin. 

5. Avoid Breakouts: The best way to avoid breakouts when traveling is to use a serum like sjal's serum 1 and a water-based, lightweight moisturizer. Get plenty of Vitamin C, keep your diet light and get lots of sleep.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . 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 New York City, 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 white checkered pants with a matching lime green

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
