Wellness: 5 (More) Tips and Treatments

By Alexandra Hall | Boston Magazine |

1.  BOOK YOURSELF FOR LASH EXTENSIONS
Disney knows well the power that mile-long lashes have to give the impression of femininity and youth. Now you will, too. Luxlash, 232 Newbury St., Boston, 617-587-5274, luxlash.com

[sidebar]2.  GET MONTHLY MASSAGES
They increase circulation (which delivers nutrients and oxygen to collagen fibers, which helps with elasticity), detoxify the body, banish painful knots, help with posture, and — most importantly — distress and set your head right. Moore Massage, 105 Newbury Street, Boston, 617-424-4000, mooremassage.com.

3.  SWAP LIPSTICK FOR LIP GLOSS
No, we don’t mean the gooey bubble-gum-hued junk suited for no one but ‘tweens. We mean a sophisticated, light-textured one like Chanel’s Levres Scintillantes, that fills in lines, plumps, and doesn’t feather or dry.

4.  STEER CLEAR OF SIMPLE CARBS
For every gram of them we eat, our bodies maintain three grams of water. So we don’t just feel bloated after a big bowl of pasta, or skin actually is bloated.

5.  SMOOTH OUT WITH A KERATIN TREATMENT
Even once-glossy hair gets dryer and frizzier as we age; dial back to your youthful days of flowy locks by adding keratin, the protein naturally found in hair. 91 Newbury St., Boston, 617-267-1900, patricevinci.com.
