intro: New year, new you -- right? If your 2014 resolution includes stepping up your beauty routine, consider these four products you never heard of, and probably never even knew you (might) need.
quicklist: 1 title:Deodorant for Your Breasts
text:Apparently, breast sweat is such an issue that there are not one, not two but at least three separate companies marketing a version of a product to cure your "swoob" (boob sweat).
Bust Dust is made by Klima Health Solutions and costs $20. The site claims 30 percent of people worldwide suffer from chest and breast sweating. Dust is not only a deodorant but an antiperspirant, which should prevent sweat from appearing on your clothing.
Fresh Breasts is part of the Fresh Body line and is a lotion, rather than a powder. It claims to be anti-chafing and "can be applied as often as needed and is recommended as part of your daily routine." Cost: $12. And for the guys? The company also makes Fresh Balls.
Boobalicious Breast Deodorant If you're looking for a product that's also organic, Boobalicious claims it's made of all-natural products. It's sold on Etsy for $8. media: 21434132
quicklist: 2 title: Relief for High Heel Feet text: High heels giving you foot pain? One Beverly Hills plastic surgeon claims to have the answer. The product, Heel No Pain/Style by Biochemistry, was created by Dr. Randal Haworth and claims that the anesthetic spray is designed to work its way through the thick skin on the soles of the feet and numb the nerves that transmit pain.
Among its ingredients is lidocaine HCI, a local anesthetic used by doctors and dentists, according to Haworth. The spray is to be applied to your feet no more than four times a day. After 10 to 15 minutes, the company claims, the spray will kick in and ease your pain. media: 21434280
quicklist: 3 title: 24-Karat Gold Leggings text: Proskins, a British company that makes high-end fitness apparel, has created a pair of leggings made with 24-karat gold that claim to reduce cellulite and have anti-aging properties. They cost $200.
According to the website, the compression leggings use gold "nanoparticles," a "revolutionary new anti-aging beauty treatment" that "reduces the appearance of aging, skin cells increase hyaluronic acid production and therefore, the skin gets moisturized, avoids wrinkles and recovers its youth and elasticity."
The leggings were temporarily out of stock around the holidays, but they're back in stock now. media: 21232824
quicklist: 4 title: DD and EE Creams text: It's not so much that DD cream is bizarre in and of itself, it's more that there is yet another cream in the series of never-ending alphabet-named foundation-type makeup products. We were so perplexed by the difference between BB creams and CC creams in 2013 that it prompted this article. We even asked, half joking, if a DD cream was next.
Now, less than one year later, there is not only a DD cream on the market, but an EE cream too. The DD cream, made by Julep, stands for "dynamic do-all." (BB usually stands for "beauty balm" and CC for "color correction.")
And just a few days ago, word came that EE cream is about to make its debut. But EE cream, unlike its predecessors, doesn't seem to be a foundation-type makeup but rather an "extra exfoliating" mousse that's used with your facial cleanser. media: 21434473
