The Beauty Beat: 4/22-4/28

Brush, oxygenate and bikini-cize.

It’s Earth Day. Do things both good for you and Mother Earth by switching your toothbrush to something that won’t be around for 20 years . Give your skin some breathing room. And shape up while you snatch up swimsuits to enjoy Mother Nature’s great outdoors in.

BEAUTY: It’s Earth Day! Do something good for the earth and yourself, like look into the first-ever compostable toothbrush. Did you know each year 450 million toothbrushes are dumped into landfills? Most are not biodegradable and will remain for decades. Since brushing your teeth with your finger isn’t really an option, try the World Centric compostable toothbrush and travel case. Made from plant-based resin, these brushes (but not bristles) compost within three-to-six month when sent to a commercial composting facility. World Centric provides a prepaid envelope that customers use to return the toothbrush and case, which then get shipped to a composting facility for biodegradation. It’s just one simple step you can do to help keep Mother Nature looking her best. GET IT: $4.55 at Whole Food stores or online at

SPA: It’s the last week to cash in on MySpa’s April promo. For the rest of the month, get an 80-minute facial when you book 50 minutes for $150. Your extended facial will use gentle oxygen pressure to hydrate, tone and refresh skin. Plus, a complimentary oxygen inhalation treatment will top off the treatment and leave you feeling 100-percent relaxed. You’ll also score 10 percent off any retail items purchased the day of your service. How’s that for a deal? GET IT: mySpa at the InterContinental Miami, 100 Chopin Plaza, Plaza Level, Miami; 305.372.4444.
