The best 4 places to live  for fabulous skin and great hair!

DR. MICHELLE YAGODA,  NYC FACIAL PLASTIC SURGEON, AND CO-FOUNDER OF BEAUTYSCOOP

According to an article in TotalBeauty.com, where you live can affect how you look!  The authors suggest that hair typically looks best in locations with low humidity, minimal pollution, little rainfall, reduced wind speed, soft water and a high concentration of hair salons!  They also note that skin typically looks best in cities with minimal pollution, reduced sunshine, sparse tanning salons, moderate humidity, low number of smokers and little stress.  Here are their top ten lists by category:

For Best Skin

1. Anchorage, Alaska - no pollution, only 41% of days are sunny, moderate humidity and low rates of skin cancer
2. Bismark, North Dakota
3. Honolulu, Hawaii - pollution free, few tanning salons, moderate humidity, consistent weather
4. Flagstaff, Arizona
5. Billings, Montana
6. New York - minimal tanning salons, 58% of days are sunny, average humidity, low skin cancer rates
7. San Antonio, Texas
8. Washington, D.C.
9. San Francisco, California - little sunshine, sparse tanning beds, consistent weather, lowest smoking rates
10. Cheyenne, Wyoming

For Best Hair
1. Santa Barbara, California
2. Honolulu, Hawaii - clear air, soft water, lots of salons, consistent weather
3. San Diego, California
4. Anchorage, Alaska - lack of pollution, minimal wind, soft water
5. San Francisco, California - most consistent weather, soft water, minimal wind, high concentration of salons
6. New York - perfect water for hair, most salons per zip code in the country
7. Miami, Florida
8. Los Angeles, California
9. Denver, Colorado
10. Boston, Massaschusetts

Based on the data from TotalBeauty.com, you should live in Anchorage, Honolulu, New York or San Francisco, if you, your skin and hair want the external, environmental factors in your favor.   But don't forget....beauty is an external reflection of internal health and wellness too!  Eat a healthy diet, get plenty of sleep, control your stress, stimulate your mind, surround yourself with positive relationships....and when all else fails, you've got BeautyScoop, injectables and plastic surgery to offer a helping hand!

Interview with Shelly Bromfield,
Celebrity Stylist

1.  What are the THREE must-have accessories for Spring 2010?

The must-have accessories most definitely are the following: 1. the new signature handbag...color is the key with a touch of green or purple shiny hardware. (I also love a black or white patent satchel with a fabulous scarf tied at the handle.); 2. a new short-proportion trench - classic, yet edgy when belted at the waist; and 3. an iPAD!!!


2.  Are there considerations for age when considering style? 

If you are over 40, you must avoid jeans or any color that is too tight! Skin showing at the waist and see-through shirts are not age appropriate!!! Love handles are only for your husband, lover or plastic surgeon to see

3.  Are there any tips you can share that readers can do while shopping alone?

No stylist?  Go to a credible boutique and shop there, or go to a reputable
department store and ask for a complimentary personal shopper. Even if it costs
a little more than a discount store, it will be worth it in the long run. 


4.  What role do you believe BeautyScoop plays as an edible accessory?  

BeautyScoop makes you look healthy and fabulous because no matter how much you spend on your clothing and accessories, your inner beauty and health is key. Besides, it is delicious and gives you satisfaction, without guilt. You know you are doing something good for yourself.
