Keep Calm: You're Turning Thirty

Urban Body Blog, Staff Favourites, Staff Picks, urban body laser

It can be a scary transition departing your twenties and entering your thirties. As a 21 year old, no one expected you to think about saving for retirement, making your mortgage payments, or climbing up the corporate ladder. But now that you’ve reached a new decade in your life, it’s not just your responsibilities that may be plaguing your mind. There could be an unwelcomed change that’s also starting to take shape: wrinkles. Wrinkles are faint lines that appear on the face and usually affect people who are 35 and under. We all know aging is inevitable, but many don’t …

But what if we told you that there are actually needles that can make you look …

While these are all great examples of foursomes, to us they don’t quite compare with our favourite quartet: the Colorescience Core 4. This simple four-step regimen of pure mineral products work together to treat, camouflage, cover and protect your complexion. The best part is that they’re easy to use, infused with vitamins and antioxidants, and match a variety of skin tones. In less than two …

“With a record-breaking number of sunny days, we have a lot to be thankful for this summer in Vancouver. If you spent the past few months in the beautiful outdoors, there’s one part of you that may not be so thrilled: your skin.

Another great feature is that it’s multi-functional; use these shades for your cheeks and lips for a quick and portable make-up fix.” Now when it comes to brands, not all shadows are created equal. Many can simply rub off in less than an hour or are laden with chemicals that will pollute your delicate skin. We asked the Urban Body Laser team which line they prefer, …
