Spring brings a new season of beautiful weather, outdoor activities, and an essential pivot in your beauty regimen. So get ready to freshen up your hair, clean out your beauty items, and make your shopping list for the must have items! Rachel from Salty & Stylish and I have everything you need to have glowing skin from head to toe this spring in our 2023 Spring Beauty Guide. Of course, we had to add a little fashion too (check out the full Spring Fashion Guide here).

Save The Girls

Owner and founder, Tami Lange, believes the best way to show encouragement is to buy something from a business owned by a woman. Lange is a one-woman testament to the power of flexibility, improvisation, and the courage to act when things are going badly. Lange invented a touchscreen purse for women to store and operate their smartphones without having to remove them from the purse. During the global outbreak, her business shrank by more than 95%. The retail outlets where the clever, fashionable, and useful purses were sold were all closed. No one would have found fault with her had she just quit. But anyone who thought that Tami Lange would walk away from her once thriving enterprise had another thing coming.

Lange quickly found new opportunities and available channels to market and promote the Touch Screen Purse. The accessible conduit to new customers was online sales and television was the avenue for promotion. Her website could accommodate more sales without any major changes. Television features with ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge, Howie Mandel, followed by another on ‘The View’ provided enough revenue for her initiative to remain viable. She sold over 14,000 of her touchscreen purses right after a feature on ‘Good Morning America’ (GMA). The sales from these televised features drove enough commerce for Lange to not only stay in business but expand to other lines for women that were as attractive as they were needed and useful.

She added full facial scarves, face shields, sparkle masks and bucket hats to help provide protection from airborne hazards and make a positive fashion statement. All are available via the Save The Girls website, https://savethegirls.com/ and at many of the retail outlets where Save The Girls Touchscreen Purses are sold.

Famolare

What girl doesn’t love shoes!? The iconic sustainable fashion brand from the ’70s is back! Women who wore Famolares in the ’70s and ’80s shared an identity, supporting peace, pushing for civil rights and rallying to protect the environment. Now 50 years later, not much has changed. Sustainability is of the utmost importance in Famolare’s current business model. All its manufacturers are intentionally within two miles of each other to keep a low carbon footprint. They also source and make all their sandals locally, using 100% of their materials to avoid waste. This is unlike other fashion brands that end up throwing away excess leather, shoe molds, and more each season. Price: $128.00 — $188.00

Mom’s who enjoy hiking and working out will be thrilled to receive Coalatree’s soft fleece jacket that’s great for layering. Spent coffee grounds are mixed and melted down with recycled plastic bottles to create the fibers for its innovative baseline midlayer. The result is a midlayer packed with features that are perfect for all outdoor adventures. Unlike other fleece garments, the baseline does not shed microplastics when washed.

GURIN Rain Shower Head

One of the simplest (and most budget-friendly!) ways to achieve healthier hair and skin is to swap out your old shower head for one that protects and enhances your natural beauty.

The Rainfall Shower Head by Gurin features anti-clogging nozzles that increase water pressure while the shower head’s filter fights off harmful hard water that can leave your hair and skin looking dull and damaged.

Did you know that hard water can cause hair breakage and even hair loss? According to dermatologists, hard water can also create a waxy buildup on your skin, clogging your pores, ultimately causing breakouts.

With an outflow of 1.8 gallons per minute, you’ll also be saving on your water bill without sacrificing a truly spa-like experience.

NuShape Lipo Wrap

Special offer for first-timers

Introducing NuShape — The Original WEARABLE Red Light Therapy. With its best-selling device The Nushape Lipo Wrap, this high-tech company uses the power of non-invasive Red-Light and Near-Infrared Therapy to deliver coveted solutions like fat loss, muscle toning, cellulite reduction, pain relief and many more wellness benefits TO THE BODY. Plus, it’s the first solution that offers SPOT REDUCTION of fat — just in time for bathing-suit season!

Plus, it was created by MOM and former spa owner Jessica Charles!

It’s so easy to use: Simply wrap the Nushape Lipo Wrap around your area of choice and relax while warm Red Light enters your body, increasing blood circulation and fat release. (photo attached)

Not only is the Nushape Lipo Wrap an incredible way to lose weight at home, but this Red-Light therapy offers many more health benefits usually found only at the spa or in doctors’ offices. The NuShape Lipo Wrap can help:

  • Provide fast and effective lipolysis of the fat cells to encourage weight loss, fat reduction, spot reduction and detoxification, when following the recommended protocol.
  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite when combined with recommended exercise protocols, thanks to the red and near-infrared light, which promotes and enhances blood circulation and the release of fatty acids from fat tissue.
  • Enhance lymphatic drainage, which increase circulation, reduces edema and speeds healing.
  • Improve muscle gain, muscle tone, physical performance and post-exercise recovery.
  • Release tight muscles, which can create chronic pain, joint problems and decreased mobility.
  • Combined with exercise, it can help you lose more fat/inches than exercise alone.
  • Increase collagen formation for skin rejuvenation.
  • Decrease inflammation and relieve pain.

HOW: The Nushape Lipo Wrap features 600 clinical-strength LED diodes that deliver advanced, wearable, 635nm-wave Red-Light Phototherapy technology and Near-Infrared 850nm waves. It is scientifically proven to create lipolysis in fat cells, draining toxins out of each cell safely and effectively. In fact, studies show that 635nm waves decrease fat mass at twice the speed of exercise alone. Nushape’s clinical-grade (37 joules per cm2), wearable Red-Light therapy is the most powerful LED light therapy for home use on the market. What’s more, treatments are non-invasive and EMF free.

Meet Jessica, the creator of Nushape: This high-tech solution was founded and created by healthy lifestyle expert Jessica Charles. Clients at her spa in Santa Barbara constantly asked her how they could enjoy the benefits of the Red-Light treatments they experienced in the spa at home and when they were traveling, but there were no portable devices that provided the same benefits. Jessica began researching the potential, put together a team and Nushape was born. The company grew so fast that Jessica sold her spa to focus on Nushape and total wellness solutions — always her passion. Check out all of her devices on nushape.com.
