OMG. I can’t seem to keep my legs closed….not like that. I know where your mind is going. In this case, opened legs are encouraged. I’ve recently discovered a new way of stretching that has my legs bending so many different ways you’d think I was a rubber band. Stretching before a workout has always been implied as a mandatory first step but in this particular fitness class, stretching is the entire workout. Meet the new cool kid on the block: SM Stretching L.A.
Inside this chic and cozy Beverly Hills studio boast a mood lit classroom with 10 stretching spaces for students to elongate their limbs and indulge in one full hour of muscle reshaping and advanced stretching techniques. The instructor will lead you through a fast pace 15-minute warm-up to get the muscles ready for 45-minutes of deep stretching. Throughout the class you are essentially pushing yourself – with intermittent assistance from the instructor – to push past the limits you think your body has set. Each stretching exercise leads you up to the grand finale: training you body to form a splits both down the side and down the middle. Don’t think that this will be easy and be prepared to sweat. There is also a mental component that occurs during the session. Holding the splits position or any stretching position that has some sort of discomfort focuses your mind and makes you present in the moment while distracting you from the outside world and the many things that keep you occupied throughout the day.
Competitive rhythmic gymnast and SM Stretching founder, Samira Mustafaeva, developed the concept where the focus and goal of the class is improving flexibility in the body and increasing range of motion when the muscles are actively engaged. She measures results by how much deeper you go into your stretches each time particularly in the splits position. She launched this concept in her hometown of Moscow, Russia and 5 studios later introduced the idea to the US with her first flagship studio in Beverly Hills.
If you have background in things such as dance, cheerleading, or gymnastics, you may already be familiar with this style of stretching. If you don’t, you’ll learn quickly that you will need a hand full of classes – roughly 10 to 12 taken consistently – to even remotely look like Samira when she does her variations of different splits and stretches. Regardless, this class is definitely a must try and a great support to whatever your regular fitness routine already is.
COST The 1st drop-in class is $15 dollars. Each individual drop-in class after is $30 dollars. They offer various packages and private training classes ranging between $120-$230 dollars.
LOCATION The studio is located at 111 N. La Cienega Blvd. Beverly Hills, CA 90211. The studio is to the left of Matsuhisa with the entrance on your left at the back of the parking lot.
PARKING You can park in the restaurant valet ($5 dollars) or do street parking. There are meters all around and meters are free on Sundays.
Introducing the first scientifically-back CBD line to improve and strengthen hair for scalp, lash and brow!
Check this out:
100% vegan formulas
94% more effective lash/brow density & volume delivery
70% less hair shedding after 4 months
50% greater hair density after 4 months
34% more effective lash/brow length delivery
0% negative side effects
It’s true, y’all. VEGAMOUR has created what could be the world’s cleanest, most effective hair restoration formulas – with trusted, scientifically proven ingredients, and without harmful toxins or unwanted side effects.
I just met with Dan Hodgdon, CEO of VEGAMOUR to learn about the new CBD line, the difference between their approach to including CBD compared to the rest of the market, and learned about the full line, which I am now a seriously obsessive fan girl of. So, the new line that is blowing me away consists of:
CBD & Biotin Vegan Hair Gummies, which are the first hair vitamins to harness the powerful CBD medicinal and therapeutic benefits along with vitamins and minerals that feed and support hair growth
CBD hair growth serum for the scalp
CBD hair growth serum for the eyelash
CBD hair growth serum for the eyebrow
Dan Hodgdon is the Co-Founder and CEO of VEGAMOUR, a vegan hair wellness company that uses powerful, plant-derived actives with proven clinical and visible results. As a pioneer in the beauty industry working with renowned brands, Hodgdon quickly realized there was a need for clean, natural products that could effectively stimulate hair growth. This was the driving factor behind launching Vegamour, the world’s cleanest, most effective hair restoration formulas on the market. While having been exposed to diverse cultures when living all over the world, Hodgdon acquired a keen interest in biodiversity and would go on to spend years both researching powerful plant actives and also creating sustainable, eco-friendly supply chains for major beauty brands around the globe. Hodgdon was instrumental in establishing a Fair Trade co-op that harvested the highest quality natural actives, including the company’s staple ingredient, marula oil, while providing sustainable, eco-friendly work to over 5,000 women in southern Africa. With a belief that the healthier you are, the better you feel, Hodgdon continues to create a company based in downtown Los Angeles that obtains a mindfulness toward social impact and ethical responsibility.
This topical product line is made by decreasing the size of the CBD molecules by over 1,000 percent so that the CBD particles are able to penetrate the skin more deeply and are proven to deliver increased efficacy.
“Our research has shown that CBD has inherent, clinically-proven actives that naturally work in tandem to stimulate healthy hair growth,” said Vegamour CEO Dan Hodgdon. “There are several companies that have announced CBD-infused beauty products as a way to be part of the CBD trend, but they often aren’t sourced or manufactured correctly and in many cases, they’re incorporated into formulations which don’t allow the CBD to actually penetrate the skin and thus consumers are receiving little-to-no benefit. Our first-to-market topical line of CBD serums is designed to penetrate the skin and has proven to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow around the hair follicles while reducing inflammation.“
The company, which has always had strict ingredient guidelines and has always stayed away from the harmful chemical ingredients found in most pharmaceutical hair growth products, will be extending their CBD line from topicals to ingestibles and supplements to create a full CBD hair health line, resulting in stronger, thicker and healthier hair.
“Our line of full-spectrum CBD hair wellness supplements work in tandem with our topical CBD serums by providing additional synergistic health benefits such as balancing the endocannabinoid system for overall peace, stress reduction and improved sleep,” adds Hodgdon.
– Dan Hodgdon
The first CBD product set to launch from Vegamour will be CBD & Biotin Vegan Hair Gummies, available in June, which are the first hair vitamins to harness the powerful CBD medicinal and therapeutic benefits along with vitamins and minerals that feed and support hair growth. The CBD serums for the scalp, brow and lash will soon follow this summer and are all available for presale now.
The scientific research that is behind the Vegamour CBD line shows that CBD reduces stress and anxiety, improves sleep quality and helps the body produce less cortisol, which is known to cause weight gain and increase hair loss. These CBD products are also known to reduce inflammation of hair follicles and increase blood circulation of the follicle, all of which promotes healthy, natural hair growth.
All of the Vegamour products are 100% vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and made in the USA.

RESTYLANE LYFT FOR MIDFACE & CHEEK INJECTION VIA CANNULA Restylane Lyft Now Joins Restylane Silk as the Only Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Approved for Use with Cannula1, 2.
We are massive all-time fans of all things Restylane to soften lines and restore facial volume. We age. We lose volume. It’s that simple. The old expression, we need to choose between our asses or faces. I’d like to think to keep both going at full volume.
Forget the days of over-filling faces to look like puffer fish – that aesthetic is our biggest turn off and has never been something we even want to associate with. At Groomed LA, we simply want to share the best tools to make you look as awesome as you feel on the inside. We give you the best tools for inner work and the best for outer to reflect your awesomeness inside – that simple!
I have used fillers in the most delicate ways, to soften under eye circles and add some fullness in areas where the face started to thin out.
Restylane Refyne is FDA-approved for smile lines and now, Restylane® Lyft it is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler approved for use to restore age- related volume loss in the midface and cheek area with a blunt tip cannula.
I worked with The Master Injector,Bernice Cohen, RN, PHN ,BSN, CANS, at AVA MD, as she is the expert trainer in this and tops in the country. It’s always thrilling to work with Bernice as she is such a top level pro in the field, I always learn so much and leave with my mind blown (on top of looking excellent).
Bernice Cohen is a Registered Nurse, nurse injector and laser specialist, as well as a Public Health Nurse with a B.S. degree in Nursing. Having joined the Ava MD practice in March of 2010, she is now a Top Trainer in the US for Galderma Injectables, teaching other doctors and injectors how to use Sculptra, Restylane, Restylane Lyft and Dysport. Born in Berlin, Germany and raised in Burbank, California, Bernice worked as an international model doing runway, print and commercial modeling with Ford and Elite for 15 years before making her transition to dermatology.
Why a cannula?
The use of a cannula may be associated with less potential damage to blood vessels, and may help minimize patient bruising, help decrease swelling, and allow for minimized downtime.
Natural-looking results, restored volume and fullness to the cheeks.
Created with XpresHAn Technology™, to help smooth moderate lines and provide the right amount of support and flexibility through a range of facial expressions
Integrates with your skin and acts like your body’s own hyaluronic acid
Gives the support you need while allowing a range of facial expressions
Restylane® Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler approved for use to restore age- related volume loss in the midface and cheek area with a blunt tip cannula.1,2
What is a cannula? What are the benefits of injection with a cannula?
A cannula is a small, thin, flexible, blunt tip needle with a small opening on the side that provides an effective means for injecting HA dermal fillers into the skin.3
The use of a cannula may be associated with less potential damage to blood vessels, and may help minimize patient bruising, help decrease swelling, and allow for minimized downtime.4
Precise implantation of HA fillers is important for patient safety and for achieving the best aesthetic outcome and using a cannula can result in a more precise injection as compared to a needle.
When injecting with a cannula, a single-entry point is used so the cannula can be inserted through the entire midface or cheek area.6 When using a needle, the sharp tip of the needle penetrates through the skin down to the depth in each point where the filler is injected. In contrast to this, a cannula has a blunt tip, and requires only one to two insertion points on either side of the entire injection area.
Here’s what you can expect with Restylane Lyft for midface and cheek injection via cannula:
Bernice made sure to enhance my natural bone structure, not change it. The goal is to leave looking the same only BETTER!
Restored volume and fullness to the cheeks
May be associated with less bruising and decreased swelling compared to injection via needle4
Results proven to last up to 12 months1
Restylane Lyft is the only HA filler with three FDA-approved indications – the midface/cheek area, nasolabial folds, and back of the hands.1,2

Restylane® Refyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in patients over the age of 21.
Restylane® Defyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, in patients over the age of 21.
Are there any reasons why I should not use products within the Restylane® family? (Contraindications)
To ensure a safe procedure, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. You should not use products within the Restylane family if:
• You have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis)
• You are allergic to lidocaine or to any of the gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid
• You are prone to bleeding or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder
Are there other precautions that I should discuss with my doctor?
• Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or trying to become pregnant. The safety of these products for use during pregnancy, or in women who are breastfeeding, has not been studied
• Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are intended to treat facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane and Restylane- L are also intended for lip enhancement. Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine is also intended for injection in the dorsal hand to correct volume loss. Treatments in other areas of the face or body have not been evaluated in clinical studies.
• The safety and effectiveness of Restylane® Silk for areas other than the lips and perioral area have not been evaluated in clinical studies.
• Tell your doctor if you have any history of scarring, particularly thick and stiff scars, or any pigmentation (skin color) disorders. These side effects can occur with hyaluronic acid fillers in general.
• Tell your doctor if you are planning other laser treatments or a chemical peel, as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if these procedures are performed after treatment
• Patients who experience skin injury near the site of injection with these products may be at a higher risk for side effects
• Tell your doctor if you are on any medications to decrease your body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site.
• Tell your doctor if you are using any “blood thinners” such as aspirin, warfarin, or any other medications that affect bleeding. Using these medications may increase your risk of bruising or bleeding at the gel injection site.
• The use of these products on gel injection sites with skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections should be postponed until healing is complete. Use of product in these areas could delay healing or make your skin problems worse.
Tell your doctor if you have diseases, injuries, or disabilities of the hand.
What are the possible side effects?
The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site.
One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.

Cannabis is here to stay. Hooray. I recently sat down with Derek Chase of FLORA & BAST to discuss this stunning line he’s created (more on that on the Groomed LA Podcast soon!! ) If you’ve been awake and in the beauty / wellness scene then you know cannabis can be found in just about every aspect of self-care products, fitting seamlessly into our lifestyles and making all things, well, way better.
Aging is simply a fact of modern living – and we are aging even faster now, as we are in a race to catch up to the stress put upon us. Cannabis exerts profound adaptogenic effects by modulating the endocannabinoid system, resulting in a return to equilibrium where the body can heal itself naturally. In other words, thwarting cellular breakdown.
FULL-SPECTRUM – What’s is all about?
Flora & Bast cannabis extracts are classified as “full-spectrum”.
Let’s break that down: It means the formulas mirror the composition of the plants from which they were derived, optimizing your body’s ability to utilize them and in turn, maximizing their results.
The serum below is blowing all of our minds. My best friend’s hormonal acne cleared up in days. The sleep tincture is now by my bed and I use it to set the pace of my evening and start preparing for sleep as soon as the sun sets.
AGE ADAPTING FACIAL SERUM – The foundation for your entire skincare routine. In balancing your Endocannabinoid System, skin is brought to a state of equilibrium where it can repair itself naturally, resulting in:
– Reduced acne/breakouts and blemishes
– Reduced redness and puffiness
– Enhanced firmness and elasticity
AGE ADAPTING SLEEP TINCTURE – Recovery is the key to healthy mind, body and skin. The sleep tincture works by regulating sleep-wake cycles, called circadian rhythms. When taken 30 minutes before intended time to bed, users find that they:
– Fall asleep with greater consistency and ease
– Stay asleep longer
– Wake up more refreshed, both physically and mentally.
*Best results are achieved when items are used together.
At FLORA + BAST our philosophy is simple – procure the best ingredients, process them minimally, and preserve them naturally. Our formulas are organic, food-grade, and contain only three ingredients. We exclude water, surfactants and preservatives that can cause harm to human health, leaving only what is necessary and kind to humans. All products are tested for purity, potency, safety and efficacy by a third party analytical lab.

Active Ingredient Cannabis Sativa Oil derived from hybrid AC/DC X Cannatonic genetics grown organically in CO.
Cannabis Sativa Oil derived from BoAx genetics grown biodynamically in VT.
Single source, organic, outdoor grown and genetically pure cannabis strains are selected for their highly therapeutic cannabinoid and terpene profiles.
C02 extracted oils are unmatched in potency, purity, and bioactivity.
CANNABIS SATIVA SEED OIL
Organic hemp seed oil strikes the perfect balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats, making it highly bioavailable.
Packed with essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce on its own, this star ingredient produces a plumping effect when applied, while fortifying the skin’s protective barrier.
MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES
Flora & Bast’s has been shown to deliver therapeutic benefits for metabolic illnesses from epilepsy to Alzheimer’s.
ENERGETIC OIL (Pure Caprylic Acid, 32oz)
Made famous by Bulletproof Coffee, this highly prized MCT oil is converted directly into energy without the need for additional breakdown by the body. Serving as the centerpiece for a version of the Ketogenic Diet called The MCT Oil Diet, you can add it to your morning coffee or tea to help elevate and sustain energy levels throughout the day. Add to meals to increase savoriness and satiety. Ketogenic diets like the MCT Oil Diet have proven anti-inflammatory effects similar to cannabis.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CBD PRODUCTS WITH DEREK CHASE
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, which are lipids that protect the plant from pesky pests trying to get a bit of bud in their diet. While CBD and THC are both psychoactive when ingested, CBD produces a non-inebriating state of mind, while THC is responsible for the euphoric high associated with marijuana. Both have medical and wellness applications, though CBD is the only cannabinoid available over-the-counter at significant levels (remember the plants with > 0.3% THC are considered marijuana and therefore only sold through dispensaries in states with legal marijuana laws).
How does CBD work on lines and aging? – @AgeofFabulous
Derek Chase, Flora + Bast Founder
CBD has profound metabolic effects, slowing the rate of biological aging by balancing the skin’s endocannabinoid tone, preventing aging/lines and wrinkles from forming. CBD also helps increase the rate at which our skin cells turn over, and upregulates apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in tissue that is compromised or unhealthy, resulting in the reduction of everything from lines and wrinkles, to dark spots to saggy skin.
I have dry skin but also awful hormonal acne that just started in my 30s! Would CBD work? – @whitney.w.shaw
YAS! One of the biggest issues with acne products on the market today is that they are not only drying but also inflammatory. Adding a CBD-rich product to your routine will help to balance oil production, in addition to reducing inflammation (which is the underlying cause of acne, be it adolescent or adult onset). For best results, only use products containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide as spot treatments or on full face for an acute period of time (1-3 days max). Chronic use of these actives will result in continued breakouts over time.
How do you know what dose of CBD should be in products to get the maximum benefits? – @kathp227
There is very little reliable data on dosing for CBD, especially topically speaking. As such we led small scale consumer studies to understand where the best results were achieved, which landed us at 1% potency for our serum, and 20mg per dose (1mL, which is one full pipette) on our tincture.
When do I apply the CBD oil in my evening routine? Other lotions and serums first or the oil first? – LSG
Oil first, everything else after! Since the fatty acids in our oil is primarily that of the small molecule variety, it will absorb quickly (max 30 seconds). If applied on top, it may be more difficult for oil to absorb.
Does it come with a regimen and will it help to remove acne scars and dark pigmentation? – @malwina.07
Our recommended regimen, both day and night, in chronological order:
Wash with a gentle, low surfactant cleanser (you can tell the level of surfactant by the amount of foam it produces); oil cleansers are preferred.
Apply AGE ADAPTING FACIAL SERUM, pressing and or massaging into face for 30 seconds.
Depending on your skins needs, add all other products over top. We believe in a water-free routine, with more aggressive products being reserved for nighttime use only (retinols, acids, vitamin Cs, etc…).
Is the Age Adapting Serum a day and night time usage? Can I use it with a Vitamin C serum? – @JulieG
BOTH! Safe to use with ANY product, as the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the serum are non-irritating or interactive as it pertains to other facial care ingredients. In addition to the serum not being conflicting, it will also help reduce the irritation that can be caused by a vitamin C product.
Does it calm rosacea? – @kelseywoods79
Anecdotally speaking, YAS! There still needs to be testing done on the effects of CBD on these types of dermatological disorders, but you are a prime candidate for a CBD-rich product.
Does it all smell like weed? lol – @SwitStacie
Our serum has a relatively mild cannabis scent that dissipates within 2-3 minutes, depending on how much you apply. Our tincture has a more distinct cannabis aroma given the potency and variety of cannabis we have selected for this product.
Can I use this with retinol? – @Marie
YAS! Like the vitamin C question, products that are likely to produce irritation and redness are perfect candidates to apply on top of our serum. Less irritation means more applications and more results from your retinoids! We love retinoids and will be launching into the ingredient in 2020.
Will you have better dreams with it? – @SwitStacie
There is a lot of data out there that shows a whole host of changes in sleep – lucid dreaming has been reported, as well as a reduction in dreams – bottom line is that it all depends on the needs of the individual, as CBD is an adaptogen and produces results depending on the needs of the individual. We have done small scale consumer studies which show variations in both REM sleep (when you dream) and deep sleep, so changes in dreaming is to be expected but not necessarily determined prior to testing.
Do you grow your own plants to create the product? – @ljkirven
We partner with 3 independent farms in OR, CO and VT.
My fave go-to, DIRTY LEMON, captures the essence of summer in a bottle with its first limited-edition seasonal release, +aloe. I am obsessed with Dirty Lemon and their new wellness formulations and cutting edge eye on beauty enhancing ingredients.
The formula combines the benefits of aloe vera and coconut water to deliver a thirst-quenching daily beverage to hydrate, cool and soothe summer skin. Perfect for, well, all day everyday, this summer.
“Proper hydration is often overlooked as a necessity for optimal skin health,” says Dr. Laurie Brodksy. “The vast majority of us don’t drink as much water as we should and when we become dehydrated, as we do by spending more time outside during the summer, our skin requires restoration to correct this imbalance.”
DIRTY LEMON’s +aloe is designed to replenish this moisture loss and maintain optimal hydration levels needed to prevent the most common skin concerns associated with dehydration and ensure a healthy summer glow.
The flavor profile is inspired by a beachside favorite, the mojito. The refreshing and tropical elixir contains aloe vera juice harvested from Mexico blended with organic Idonesian coconut water and paired with vanilla, mint and lime. Each bottle contains only 15 calories and less than 1g of sugar.
● Aloe Vera —Packed with over 200 biologically active amino acids, minerals and immune-boosting polysaccharides to soothe, cool and hydrate inflammatory skin problems, such as sunburn, acne and rosacea
● Coconut Water —A great source of natural electrolytes as well as vitamin C, potassium, calcium, magnesium and glucose, the primary energy component of skin cells
● Lucuma —†Abundant in beta-carotene, zinc, iron and vitamin B3, studies show the Peruvian superfood has wound remedying properties and supports skin rejuvenation
+aloe BENEFITS *Provided by Dr. Brodsky:
● Hydrates —Aloe vera contains mucopolysaccharides (sugar molecules) that help bind water droplets to the skin, replenishing cells from the inside out
● Heals —Studies show ingesting aloe vera reverses the effects of aging and visibly reduces wrinkles. The amino acids in aloe vera soften dehydrated skin cells, while zinc acts as an astringent to tighten enlarged pores for a more supple appearance.
● Protects —Aloe vera provides an antioxidant-rich barrier to fight off acne-causing bacteria and inflammation associated with free radical damage
● Plumps —Studies show drinking aloe vera stimulates fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin fibers, helping skin look smoother and feel more elastic
+aloe is available for a limited time only on June 17th from $45/case. To order visit DIRTYLEMON.com
