The Top Trends for New Year Dressing

In vino veritas is Latin for "In wine, [there is] truth," and as poet John Keats taught us, "Beauty is truth, truth beauty." With this in mind, it only makes sense that drinking a glass or two of wine daily might make us look younger and more refreshed.

Just as wine gets better with age, age gets better with wine. Heres how: The antioxidants found in red wine, in particular, help sop up the damaging free radicals that play a role in aging and age-related diseases, contributing to a better complexion and a lower risk of heart disease, Alzheimer's, some types of cancer, and diabetes.

For women, the wine beauty Rx is one glass a day and for men, its two. You can have too much of a good thing. Drinking more than recommended can have the opposite effect on your appearance and health.

So how can you incorporate this beauty advice into your annual Thanksgiving celebration? Goddess Gossip called upon husband and wife wine and spirits experts Susan Balasny Davis of the Drink Collective and Marc Davis of Domaine Select Wine Estates to find the perfect wines to enhance the flavor of your traditional and not-so-traditional Thanksgiving day fare

Still, it can add up — often in one spot. Sound familiar? Spot reduction with CoolSculpting by Zeltiq may help get rid of these pesky pockets of fat. Is it right for you?

What is the deal with the newest filler, Juvederm Voluma? Do we really need another one?

Yes. There are many soft tissue fillers on the market, but they fill wrinkles and folds. By contrast, Juvederm Voluma adds volume to the cheeks or other, larger, areas in the mid-face (thus the name). Recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Allergans Juvederm Voluma is a welcome addition because it fills what many plastic surgeons consider an unmet need.
