Staff Picks: Tia’s March Musts

One of our fave staff members talks beauty for spring

Spring is coming and it’s time for another Staff Picks! We asked Tia what she loved
most for the season ahead and this is what she told us:
1.  So many new things! What’s your top pick of the newest JAFRA arrivals?
My favorite product is the Sweet & Chic Collection! I love the Sweet Kisses Lipsticks and the bright, glittery colors of the nail lacquers and eyeshadows.
2.  What’s your favorite fragrance for when you’re feeling the love for spring?
My favorite JAFRA fragrance is hands down Double Nature Sexy. I can always count on it to make me smell amazing and feel put together! Silver Canyon is my favorite for men, although I may be biased, since it was the one that I helped create. ;)
3.  You left work a little late. You’ve got 5 minutes to get gorgeous for dinner. What are your makeup musts? GO!
Curl Luxe Mascara is my necessity whenever I go out. I hate to go anywhere without it! I’d luxe up my lashes, follow up with my Twist-Up Lip Crayon in Tawny Twist and I‘d be ready to go. Lipstick is the one thing I can put on and immediately feel dressed up.
4.   It’s Movie Night! What JAFRA product would you bring to relax with your faves for a ladies’ night in?
I would bring the JAFRA Mud Mask, so we could all detoxify our skin while bonding over wine and much needed girl time!
5.   Self-Love Alert! What is the thing that you love the most about yourself?
The thing I love most about myself is my kind demeanor and positive attitude. I believe that it is contagious and that it is something that the world needs so much more of! <3

Thank You, Women

Businesswomen and innovators that changed beauty forever

Where would beauty be without the amazing minds of women? For Women’s History Month, we’re shedding a spotlight on a few of the women who have made our beauty lives easier and inspired us with their success in the process.
Lyda D. Newman
A hairdresser by trade, inventor and suffragist Lyda D. Newman patented a new and improved hairbrush in 1898. Newman designed a brush that was durable, easy to clean, easy to make and provided ventilation during brushing.

When Newman wasn’t working in her hair salon, she was busy being a pillar of the Suffrage movement of the early 1900s. We have this beauty enthusiast and activist to thank for the synthetic bristle brushes we still use today.

Lydia O' Leary
Lydia O’Leary was an inventor who wanted acceptance and opportunity. She was born with a large, raspberry-colored port wine stain that covered a considerable portion of face and often received looks from strangers. After graduating from college in 1921, it was suggested that she look for work as a sales associate in New York City, but despite her qualifications, stores rejected her from front-counter jobs because of her birthmark.
O’Leary later took a job painting cards. It was a simple painting mistake at work that gave her the idea for her invention. After some trial, error and a little help from a local chemist, she created a makeup foundation that could effectively cover her birthmark. In 1932, Lydia O’Leary became the first and only person to ever receive a patent for a makeup foundation product.
Madame C.J. Walker
Madam C.J. Walker was a developer of hair products and the first female African-American millionaire. She was born to former slaves on a cotton plantation in Louisiana, and by the time she was 20, she had lost both parents and a husband. When she began to lose her hair from the straightening methods of the time, she invented a conditioning formula made of shampoo and pomade to straighten her hair. With that, Walker had invented a new method for hair straightening.

She began manufacturing and selling Madam C.J. Walker’s Wonderful Hair Grower as well as 16 other products. She went door-to-door giving beauty treatments as her sales pitch and trained others to sell her product as she did. Before her death in 1919, she had more than 2,000 “Walker Agents” selling her line of products. Walker also opened a chain of beauty salons and a beauty school called Leila College.

Lydia Pinkham
In 1875, teacher, women’s rights activist and abolitionist Lydia Estes Pinkham, turned her humble herbal home remedies into a lucrative business. She was deemed a crusader for women's health at a time when women's issues were not readily discussed in the medical community. As a result, she was both revered and persecuted for her frank discussions about women’s health. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound became one of the best-known patent medicines of the 19th century and one of the most successful products ever marketed for women. There are still remedies stamped with Pinkham's name available at drugstores today.
Jan Day
Janice Tripp Eldredge was born in 1919. After college, she took a job in Publicity (the PR of the day), where she met her future husband, Frank Day. Soon after getting married, Jan and Frank realized they did not want to have the kind of jobs where someone else determined how much they earned.
After some success in door-to-door sales, they set out to establish, “a company with a heart” and JAFRA (Jan + Frank) was born. They started from scratch, creating a high-quality product (Royal Jelly) and investing in hard working people who loved what they were doing. Today, hundreds of thousands of JAFRA Consultants and millions of skincare customers around the world have benefitted from Jan and Frank’s mission. 

Mind Tricks

5 Ways to Keep Your Mind on Its A-Game

We all know that our brains don’t always stay as sharp as time goes on. However, scientific advances in the last decade or so have shown that not all loss is permanent. Just like the muscles that make up our bodies, our most important organ benefits from being stretched and strengthened. Translation? Treat your brain right and it will return the favor. Want to keep your mind on it’s A-game? We’ve got a few tips:
Get Your Zzz’s…
Contrary to our workaholic, 24-7 culture, burning the midnight oil doesn’t lead to increased productivity. In fact, skipping sleep guarantees the increased likelihood of error, whether it’s your big presentation or operating your car safely. Turns out, few things have a more detrimental effect on your brain or your health in general than long-term sleep deprivation. Getting 7 to 8 hours nightly helps manage your hunger levels, boosts your immune system and sharpens your memory.
Connect Mind & Body
You may not realize it, but your body is an integral part of how you think. In other words, how you move your body and how you interact with the world around you have an impact on your thoughts – and on your brain’s health. Exercise is obviously important, but before you go start training to become a tri-athlete, consider that incorporating regular movement into your day (like a walk at lunchtime or a quick stretch before bed), can also have a positive effect.  
Turn Eastward (and Inward)
Practicing yoga and meditation not only help strengthen the mind body connection, they’re proven to help clear our heads and make us more present. Clarity like this has immense benefits, including improved problem solving and a tranquil mind.
Train Your Brain
Brain teasers (games like chess, soduku or attending a weekly trivia night) are the equivalent of a trip to the gym for your gray matter. These types of exercises keep you feeling young, strengthen your memory and helps stave off Alzheimer’s.
