On this special day where we celebrate MOM, we would like to wish all the fabulous mothers out there, a Happy Mother’s Day!
As we’ve all become more aware of how we can each be more environmentally conscious, this month we’re talking to Danny Seo. Danny is an environmental lifestyle expert with best-selling books, television programs, products, magazine and syndicated newspaper columns. Through all his efforts, including “how-to” lifestyle lectures, he is able to share the creative ideas that made him America’s leading lifestyle authority on modern, eco-friendly living.
Today, you’re an environmental lifestyle expert, but what did you want to be when you were younger?
When I was much younger, I would be in charge of decorating the family Christmas tree but wanted to do it in the most recycled way possible. So I fixated on ornaments that were either made from recycled or natural materials, but had to look a certain way, too. It was that fixation that led to me being hired to create holiday trees for a local department store (before I was 16) that helped me nurture my design skills. Those two worlds—design and sustainability—soon merged and become who I am today.
Your bio says that on your 12th birthday you founded the organization Earth 2000. What was the turning point in your life that made you want to become environmentally friendly?
I share the same birthday as Earth Day (April 22), so you can’t help but be influenced by the fact your birthday is marked with so much news about the perils of our natural world. Starting to think if I were born on Valentine’s Day, I’d be obsessed with love. Maybe.
For those people out there who want to take the first step to being more “green” what do you recommend?
Think Big. I think we all want to be green but think it means giving everything up. If you’re in the market for a new car, think about getting the absolute most fuel efficient one you can afford. Need a new fridge? Get the most energy efficient on the market because those suckers are on 24/7 and are real energy hogs if you get the wrong one. Don’t obsess over the small stuff…. it’s the big ticket items that matter most.
If that describes your holiday shopping style, then this promotion is the one for you. boscia is offering a free e-gift card (up to $40!) with purchase that you can give as a gift (or spend on yourself!) Shop by Friday, December 23 at 9 AM PST to have the gift card activated in time for Christmas.
It’s officially here – the holiday season is in full swing, and no, we can’t believe it either (where does the time go??) Regardless, it’s a time of year when routines get thrown to the wind, and traveling, feasting, partying and parking space hunting become the new norm! Fortunately, boscia has got you covered in some of the stickiest skin situations the season can throw at you:
Party Hopping: Your best friend is throwing her annual holiday fête on Friday night, and so is your sister-in-law. And your neighbor. All of which follow your office’s bad sweater party.
Holi-DO: Party hop! Everyone gets a piece of your day, and you hit all the expected hot spots in style (for an hour or two – then off to the next!) This is where Skin Perfecting Primer is an absolute MUST – it flawlessly prevents makeup from sliding and shifting, all while reducing the appearance of pores for a silky, matte finish. You’ll look like you JUST touched up, even while running out the door to the next event… “Got to goooo!”
Cozy fires. And heaters. And sweaters. And candles. Warmth! The season is all about warmth. Sometimes a little TOO much warmth.
Holi-DO: If you find yourself roasting like a chestnut while nestled on the couch next to Aunt Hilda’s itchy wool cardigan (the one with the caroling snowmen), make sure you have a Blotting Linen within arm’s reach – you’re going to need it (we like to help you keep the holiday glow inside your heart, and not dripping down your face). Just a few blots with these natural linen fiber sheets will instantly absorb excess oil (and perspiration!) without disturbing your makeup one tiny bit! (Unfortunately we can’t say the same for the snowman sweater).
Snow. Sleet. Rain. Frost. It’s freezing outside. It’s December for goodness sakes! Okay, fine, in some parts of the country that are not Southern California, cold is actually a “thing” during this time of year. boscia can still help!
Holi-DO: Let’s start by thawing out that frosty face with our new Detoxifying Black Cleanser, a warming cleansing gel that actually heats up as it cleanses, melting away impurities and refining pores. Then, replace the moisture in that dry, cracked skin, using our Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15 (because SPF is always a must, winter or not!) This rich, luxurious moisturizer gives your skin the drink it desperately needs, while also diminishing uneven skintone, dullness and fine lines (also check out its PM counterpart, Restorative Night Moisture Cream!)
Eyelash glue. Glitter. Long-wear lipstick. (Get it all off me so I can go to bed). The holiday festivities may sometimes call for a face of makeup rivaling Toddlers and Tiaras, but if you fall asleep in that glam face, you just might wake up with a spot the next day brighter than Rudolph’s red nose (for which you should use our Willow Bark Breakout Treatment. But we digress…)
Holi-DO: MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil is your answer! Apply it dry on top of your makeup (eyes included!), massage it in, work in some water with your fingertips, and rinse away clean. You won’t believe the heavy-duty makeup this wonder-oil can cut through – and without leaving one drop of residue or oily sensation left over. Your skin is fresh, cleansed, and ready to do it all over again the next day! (see: Party Hopping).
That’s it for now! Remember, if you shop by December 19, you can take your pick of our Skin Perfecting Primer, Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15, or Travel Kit for Normal to Oily Complexions with your purchase! (See here for promo code information).
And from the entire team at boscia – Happy Holi-DO’s!
