New in 72 + Vertere Skincare Giveaway

DSCF0149 (1)

I love the start of a New Year. I feel like anything is possible but my New Year’s Resolutions seem to be the same, stale goals every year. Read more, exercise more, get my life “in balance” blah, blah, blah. Recently, I was introduced to a new twist on traditional New Year’s Resolutions that I think you might enjoy. They are called New in 72 – ways you can transform your skin, wardrobe, hair and wellness in just 72 hours. I think it’s a beautiful and exciting way to kick off your 2015!

Skincare Skincare expert and Founder, President/CEO of Vertere Skincare, Bethany Hilt, offers the following tips to see a visible difference in your skin within 72 hours:

Drink Coconut Water Daily – Coconut water is not just a great hydrator due to its electrolyte content, but it also contains cytokines and lauric acid which are used in the process of cell growth and their regulation. Coconut water has significant anti-aging, anti-carcinogenic and anti-thrombotic properties which helps to minimize skin aging, balance PH levels and keep connective tissue hydrated.

Add a facial loofah to your cleansing routine – Regardless of the cleansing modality you’re currently using, whether it’s your hands or a Clarisonic, use a facial loofah gently once a day. This boost of manual exfoliation can quickly eliminate dead skin cells and polish your skin to perfection.

Vertere’s Dramatic Transformation Cream SPF 15 – To build on the tips above and see a visible difference in your skin within 72 hours, use Vertere Skin Care’s Dramatic Transformation Cream SPF 15 daily. A consumer test panel, beauty editors, bloggers and testimonials like this consistently report seeing a visible difference in their skin within 72 hours.

Brittany: To keep my skin glowing I drink tons of water (preferably alkalized), exfoliate and use a daycream with SPF. I can’t wait to try Vertere’s Dramatic Transformation Cream.

Wardrobe Celebrity wardrobe stylist Newheart Ohanian, who recently styled singer Estelle as well as spreads for Interview Germany, Vogue Taiwan and Elle Mexico, offers these pro principles for refreshing your wardrobe within 72 hours.
*Create ‘uniforms’ in your closet
*Organize your closet according to the staples of your ‘uniforms’
*Make these items the staples of your ‘uniforms’ to create go-to looks
*A little black dress
*A crisp white shirt
*Black blazer(s)
*Cashmere sweaters
*Tux trousers
*Jeans
*Turtlenecks
*Pencil skirts
*Refresh your wardrobe with new key items and accessories such as a cashmere camel coat, ankle booties, a good military boot and stackable bracelets.

Brittany: I love all of Newheart’s ideas! I like to keep my wardrobe feeling modern and fresh by updating my accessories and shoes.


Hair: Celebrity Hairstylist, Kozmo Fahringer, who has perfected the tresses of hundreds of models as well as celebrities such as Brooke Shields and Isabella Rossellini, relies on one go-to product to create a blowout that lasts 72 hours – Phytovolume Actif. Just spray it into damp hair, blow dry and style. Your style will last for 72 hours without being crunchy. Use dry shampoo on day three if necessary.

Brittany: Phytovolume Actif sounds like a miracle product. I can’t wait to try it! I think investing in a good haircut regularly goes a long way with keeping your look polished.

Wellness: Marcia Camino, yoga expert and founder of Pink Lotus Yoga Studio, recommends three types of meditation that are lesser-known to create improved emotional and spiritual health within 72 hours. These practices have shown to have a positive affect even after just one session, so practice one, two, or all three for three days straight and note the profound shift in your psyche:

Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) – Yoga Nidra helps your mind and body relax deeply because your subconscious comes to the forefront and your analytical, judgmental mind falls away.

Yin Yoga – Here, we investigate postures held for several minutes each that not only open the body for greater flexibility but also clears the mind by training the brain to ‘stay put’; necessary in our stressful world.

Freeform movement – At Pink Lotus Yoga Studio, we sometimes get out of our yoga minds and just shake it! We turn on danceable music for several minutes and ask students to explore creating movement from the heart rather than the head and to enjoy themselves while moving. Moving/Dancing is one of the best meditations in motion around; it can bring on “ananda” (happiness).

Brittany: I am a huge fan of yoga and I think that just taking a few minutes for yourself each day to sit, relax, and quiet your mind goes a long way!

Here’s to you making visible improvements to these aspects of your life in just 72 hours to kick off 2015 in a powerful way!

      Hi Eileen! Thank you for entering my giveaway. Unfortunately you are not a winner but keep up the good work of trying to eat healthy. Cooking at home is huge when trying to do this. It really takes planning but can be really rewarding. I like to plan delicious, healthy meals that will last for days. If I am going to put in the effort I want to get the most out of it because cooking at home is time consuming. Good luck! Cheers to good health in 2015!

    My New Years Resolution is to be more confident. (I feel really self-conscious a lot of the time.) Also, I’ve started eating healthier since the New Year, and I feel much better already!

      Hi Sara! Thanks for entering my giveaway. Unfortunately you are not a winner but I love your NYR! I am so happy that you have already started to see results just from eating healthier! A healthy diet and regular exercise can work wonders on confidence! A new shirt, pair of shoes, or great fitting jeans always gives me a boost too!

    Not sure if giveaway runs wordwide, so feel free to count me out 😉

    I like the tips, with all the pressure around the new year’s resolutions, it’s nice there are things that bare results quickly and thus keep you motivated. I think I’ll be getting back in to yoga and wardrobe makeover should happen soon 🙂

      Hi Bohi! Thanks so much for entering my giveaway. Unfortunately you are not a winner but best of luck with the yoga and wardrobe makeover. I love yoga and have been getting back into it myself. It ignites the mind, body and soul! And cleaning out the closet always feels great. I want to look into my closet and only see things that make me feel fabulous!

      Hi Austin! Thank you for entering my giveaway. Unfortunately you are not a winner but good luck with your NYR! 20lbs seems like a doable goal! Sometimes just cutting out sugary things from your diet can shed pounds! I am a firm believer in good diet and regular exercise!

      Congratulations Ann! You are one of my winners! I will contact you via email for your address. Drink more water is always a good one. I just found a cool cup by Rove that has a little basket attachment inside that you can put frozen fruit or whatever you like to lightly flavor your water. It makes me feel like I am at the spa all day!

      Hi Megan! Thanks for entering my giveaway. Unfortunately you are not a winner but I like your NYR. I think most of us need to relax more and treat ourselves. Even if it is just something simple. Sometimes its the little things. I have started lighting a candle in the bathroom in the morning as I am getting ready for work. It starts off the day with a sense of calm!

      Hi Shontel! Thank you for entering my giveaway. I am sorry, you are not a winner. That is a great NYR though. I think we should all keep that in the back of our minds. I do believe it all comes back to us and it feels great to pay it forward! Cheers to a New Year of giving!

      Hi Leah! Congratulations! You are one of my winners! I will contact you via email for you address. I hope this NY has started off less stressful for you. One of my tricks this year has been to light a candle in the bathroom in the mornings when I am getting ready for work. That is normally something I would only do when getting ready for a special occasion or date but I decided everyday should be special. I feel it starts the day off with a sense of calm instead of frantic!

      Hi Summer! Thank you for entering. You were not a winner but good luck with your NYR to exercise more. That is one of mine every year. So far I have exercised everyday this year and I am quite proud if it but it is kicking my butt. I found a great app on my phone called Fitstar. You can use the basics for free and they walk you through 15min workouts that you can do at home. With that I feel there is no excuse to not do it!
