Get Glowing With Kate Somerville

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Fresh off a busy Emmys weekend, during which her DermalQuench skin treatment was a pre-red carpet must for host Jane Lynch, her Glee co-star Lea Michele, Kate Walsh from Private Practice and many other celebs, Hollywood facialist Kate Somerville is headed to the Twin Cities. On Saturday, she’ll offer her $250 wrinkle-reducing treatment for free at Nordstrom Mall of America. Somerville will sign copies of her book, “Complexion Perfection,” from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Her DermalQuench machine, a hyperbaric pressurized oxygen treatment, which she says eliminates wrinkles on the spot, will be at the store all week.

Aside from Somerville’s high-tech treatment, she says great skin requires three things:

  • Exfoliation. Use a good peel or scrub twice a week to turn over dead skin cells
  • Hydration serum with hyaluronic acid
  • Moisturizer with peptides to stimulate collagen production

Follow these rules, she says, “and you’ll have gorgeous skin.” But just to be safe, you might want to schedule an appointment at Nordstrom. Call 952-883-2121.

New Digs

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Northfield, Minn. is known for its eclectic local boutiques – well worth a drive, especially on a crisp autumn day. Still, can’t help but be a little bit excited that one of Northfield’s finest, Digs, has new digs in Minneapolis. Linda Schneewind decided to move up to the city, and relocated her crafty shop at the corner of 38th and Grand in South Minneapolis (across the street from Sugar Sugar, as if you need an extra excuse to visit the retro sweet candy store).

Digs is a DIYers delight, filled with a huge assortment of fabrics and fibers. The front of the shop features finished products – jewelry, stuffed animals, t-shirts and more from independent artists–many local. Virtually every item here has an interesting story–just ask! 3800 Grand Ave. S., Mpls. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
