Dermalogica’s “Smart” Serum Responds To Exactly What Your Skin Needs

Published

on

if you’re anything like me, you deal with more than one skin concern at a time. I’ve got fine lines, PMS breakouts, dry spots and hyperpigmentation to deal with. How much depends on the day. (Thanks, 30s!) Luckily, Dermalogica’s Smart Response Serum is made just for that ever-changing skin. Unlike serums with just one or two active ingredients to target one issue, there are four actives that hydrate, brighten, soothe and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. All in one bottle.

Even better, Smart Response Serum understands what your skin needs before you do, taking a lot of the guesswork out of skincare. The brand calls it “SmartResponse” technology. It gets a little tech-y but basically, when your skin feels dehydrated, oligosaccharides from hydrolyzed beta-glucan kick in to deliver the hydration your skin is craving. Hydrolyzed wheat flour, rich in arabinoxylan-oligosaccharides (or AXOS) triggers to brighten and reduce the appearance of dark spots.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

There’s also antioxidant-rich Japanese Cornelia cherry to soothe redness and help skin fight free radicals, as well as plant-based mannose-6-phosphate to plump skin and fight the signs of aging, helping improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Phew! I told you this baby does a lot.

It’s hard to see drastic changes in just a few weeks with this type of skincare, that works to help prevent damage. But using it morning and night, my skin feels plumped and hydrated. Overall, it looks a lot brighter, too. My makeup is going on a lot easier on those dry spots and it’s calming irritation on my sensitive skin. I’ll definitely keep using it and being consistent so the ingredients have the proper time to do their magic.

It’s not cheap, but this four-in-one could replace some of your other skincare so you’ll use less overall. Grab Smart Response Serum now at Dermalogica and Sephora.

Court Nixes New Trial For ‘Making A Murderer’ Subject Avery

Published

on

By The Associated Press.

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals on Wednesday unanimously rejected a request by “Making a Murderer” subject Steven Avery to hold a hearing on new evidence that he wanted to present for a new trial.

Avery is serving a life sentence for the 2005 killing of photographer Teresa Halbach, a case that became the focus of a popular Netflix series whose creators raised questions about the convictions of Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey.

Avery attorney Kathleen Zellner asked the court to consider claims ranging from insufficient scientific evidence to ineffective trial counsel. That request had been rejected in 2017 without a hearing and Avery, in his latest appeal, had asked for a hearing or new trial to consider the evidence.

“Avery raises a variety of alternative theories about who killed Halbach and how,” the appeals court said. But it sided with attorneys for the state Department of Justice who argued the type of motion Avery filed is not the proper one to retry the case before a jury.

The appeals court said because Avery was appealing the lower court’s denial of a request for a new trial without holding an evidentiary hearing, the question before the appeals court was simply whether a hearing is warranted. It concluded that the lower court correctly rejected the call for a new trial without a hearing.

“We express no opinion about who committed this crime: the jury has decided this question, and our review is confined to whether the claims before us entitle Avery to an evidentiary hearing,” the appeals court said. “We conclude that the circuit court did not erroneously exercise its discretion.”

Zellner, Avery’s attorney, tweeted that she was not deterred by the ruling.

“It pointed out the specific doors that are still open for Mr. Avery’s quest for freedom,” Zellner said. “We appreciate the careful review.”

Both Avery and Dassey maintain their innocence. The case gained national attention in 2015 after Netflix aired “Making a Murderer,” a multi-part documentary examining Halbach’s death. The series spawned conjecture about the pair’s innocence, but those who worked on the cases accused the filmmakers of leaving out key pieces of evidence and presenting a biased view of what happened. The filmmakers defended their work and supported calls to set Avery and Dassey free.

Dassey was 16 when he confessed to detectives he helped his uncle rape and kill Halbach at the Avery family’s salvage yard. A judge threw out the confession in 2016, ruling it was coerced by investigators using deceptive tactics. That ruling was later overturned by a federal appeals court and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear his case.

Avery has been fighting unsuccessfully for years to have his conviction overturned and to be granted a new trial.

Tennessee Titans star Julio Jones (right) and former NFL wide receiver Roddy White (left) are among the defendants in a lawsuit filed by a cannabis company.

The former Atlanta Falcons teammates and their co-defendants are accused of alleged fraud and money laundering allegations, according to court papers obtained by the Tennessean.

Genetixs cannabis company claims that Jones, White and others sold around $3 million per month in cannabis since March and kept all the profits for themselves.

The lawsuit alleges the defendants illegally managed and operated Genetixs’ cannabis facility, and failed to report weed sales since March 2021.

Genetixs estimates about $3 million in cannabis was sold illegally by the defendants who then kept the profits for themselves.

According to the Tennessean newspaper:

“Jones and White, who were teammates with the Falcons from 2011 to 2015, are accused of colluding with John Van Beek and his son, Shaun Van Beek, to run a black-market cannabis operation through the Genetixs facility. Jones and White had invested in Genetixs through White’s SLW Holdings, per the documents.”

Caitlyn Jenner to explore gender identity battle at the Olympics in new Netflix series

Published

on

Caitlyn Jenner will explore her battle with gender identity during the Olympics in a Netflix series titled ‘Untold’.

Caitlyn Jenner

The 71-year-old former athlete famously won gold at the 1976 Summer Olympics in the men’s decathlon, before she came out as transgender decades later with an appearance on the cover of Vanity Fair in July 2015.

Caitlyn has spoken in the past about feeling gender dysphoria while competing in the Olympics, but is now set to explore her struggles with her identity for a forthcoming five-part sports-centred docuseries on Netflix called ‘Untold’.

In an official trailer for the series, Caitlyn said: “I spent my entire life hiding. I didn’t want people to know me, and know who I was.

“I was an Olympic Champion, the greatest athlete in the world. But I was still the same old person with all the same old issues.”

‘Untold’ will air weekly on Netflix in five 80-minute episodes, with each one looking back at iconic sports moments throughout history and uncovering the real stories that happened behind the scenes.

Alongside the ‘I Am Cait’ star, the series will also hear from boxer Christy Martin, tennis player Mardy Fish, basketball star Metta Sandiford-Artest and the United Hockey League team Danbury Trashers.

In a press release, Netflix said: “’Untold’ gets to the heart of the passion and single-mindedness it takes to be a champion and the ways in which the triumphs can be undone off the field.”

The first episode of ‘Untold’, which will focus on the Pacers and Pistons’ infamous basketball fight from 2004, will premiere on Netflix on August 10.

Meanwhile, Caitlyn said last year her decision to become an Olympic athlete was influenced by her struggles with her gender identity.

She said: “As I look back on my life – the impact and why did I do that. I think about it all the time, why was I so obsessed, train so hard to do that and accomplish that.

“It had a lot to do with who I was and the things I was running from, I want to put that on public perspective. The Olympics had a tremendous impact on my life and I’m incredibly proud of those achievements.”
