This morning I was on NBC New York doing a segment on "Back to School Beauty Buys." As excited as I was my nerves were taking a toll on me because it was the first time I was going to be live in NYC where all of my friends and family were able to watch. Thanks to my media coach who prepared me so well for past segments in other markets I felt confident.
I arrived early with my hair and make up ready, but was surprised to find out they wouldn't even be touching up my face before I was going on air! There was no time to worry. After all, the hundreds of thousands of people who were about to watch me make my first NY debut weren't really going to be looking at me. It was the products that were going to steal the show.
First, the host and I discussed essential hair buys that will help to fix any summer damage caused by chlorine and the sun such as Paul Mitchell's Super Strong Shampoo and Conditioner and Ouidad's Climate Control Gel to protect your strands from humidity. She seemed to really like Sedu's Ultrasilent Hairdryer and agreed that it was worth an investment since it was a professional tool that will last a long time. One tip I gave was that you can get professional hair tools at affordable prices at Folica.com. Remmington's Wet to Straight Flat Iron is another great buy because for those who tend to snooze a few too many times in the morning before class, it allows you to skip the blow drying all together!
We finished with skin care essentials that are great for both men and women. DERMAdoctor Med e Tate wipes and the Clearasil Ultra Pimple Blocker Pen are two products everyone should keep in their backpack in case of emergencies. Med e Tate are sweat control wipes that can be used anywhere on your face and body and if you apply the Pimple Blocker Pen as soon as you feel a pimple coming on, it will never actually form. We also touched upon VEET Spray On Hair Removal Cream as a great option for quick hair removal if you don't have time to shower and Schick Intuition Plus razors, which have built in soap bars. Finally, Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 is a great buy because your skin tends to need a little extra hydration as the season changes to fall and year round SPF is a must!
The segment flew by and it was an honor to be a part of it. I'll post the link so you can check it out soon!
