For many people, a wrinkled rug corner is nothing of importance; while walking, they’ll step over it or brush it back into place. If that person trips on the rug, they may pop back up immediately and only suffer a bruised ego. But if that person is an older adult, the rug might go unnoticed, the fall could be catastrophic—and the damage to the ego might be the least of the concerns.
For most of us, work is stressful. But for Avani Nayak, her job actually makes her more relaxed. “We have a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere; and it always smells wonderful in here,” she says of her Avani Day Spa in Frontenac. “And I love seeing the looks on people’s faces when they leave: They’re smiling and have more self-confidence, and they feel relaxed and invigorated.” We asked her about the rough and dirty business of getting the best care for your skin.
Want a look that lasts? Primers are the solution. Just like an artist who prepares his canvas for his next masterpiece, your face needs proper ‘prepping’ before makeup application for the best results possible.
You won’t find my go-to tool box in the garage. If you’re like me, your most valuable tools are stored away by the vanity, at the ready to address any and all predicaments when it comes to your most visible asset.

OSEA founder and ‘chief seaweed officer’ Jenefer Palmer comes from a long line of healers.

But what she found came as a surprise: Many of the most expensive products used inexpensive and sometimes dangerous synthetic ingredients. Palmer now uses 100 percent natural marine-based organic ingredients in her products, which are carried at luxury spas around the world. We caught up with her on a recent visit to Soft Surroundings, St. Louis’ exclusive provider of OSEA products.

The next big thing in Anti-Aging: Touted as a life-changer, NATURA BISSÉ’s Diamond Life Infusion is the latest anti-aging serum in its exclusive Diamond collection. The product is the first in the Barcelona, Spain-based company’s history to warrant a patent application. “For Natura Bissé, this is like the iPod was for Apple,” according to the company’s U.S. subsidiary CEO, Gerardo Gomez. The powerful, ground-breaking night treatment helps regulate ‘skin age biomarkers,’ which have been shown to prolong the lifespan of skin cells and slow the aging process. In a recent study involving 20 participants, the product helped increase the renewal and regeneration of skin, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles and roughness, correct dryness, restore even skin tone and increase collagen—resulting in rejuvenating the skin an average of 3.9 years! Diamond Life Infusion will be available exclusively at Neiman Marcus ($590 for the 0.8-ounce crystal jar) beginning Oct. 1, and will debut worldwide in March 2013.
All summer, conservators have worked diligently at the Saint Louis Art Museum to restore a 19th-century American treasure: The Panorama of the Monumental Grandeur of the Mississippi Valley, the only survivor of six Mississippi panoramas known to have existed.

Curator Janeen Turk says that conservators hope to complete three more by the end of the exhibit, which runs through Sept. 3.
When it comes to wrinkles, it’s easier to prevent than erase these early signs of aging. Procedures ranging from laser resurfacing to Botox to dermal fillers are available weapons in the war on wrinkles, but no one can ignore the importance of a good skin care regimen and top-notch products to help postpone the need for more invasive tactics.
Wrinkles come in many forms, settle in many places on the face and are caused by several common aging processes. Just as there’s no single type of wrinkle, there’s no one perfect solution. However, almost as many approaches to minimizing them are available as there are types of wrinkles themselves.
When it comes to the aging face, wrinkles are among the first and most obvious features. And rather than embrace this badge of longevity, many women seek ways to erase these telltale signs.
The war on wrinkles really is a war on aging, says Dr. Joseph Muccini. Beyond just wrinkles, the enemies in the fight include skin damage, laxity, changes in tone, surface and color. With more than 20 years of experience in dermatology, Muccini is equipped to help his patients wage that war at MidAmerica Skin Health & Vitality Center. “Wrinkles don’t occur in isolation; you need to consider everything in context to find the best approach for the patient to achieve the desired results.”
