Garnier welcomed its newest brand ambassador, actress and chameleon, Mandy Moore, on Wednesday.  Posting on social media, the French hair and skincare brand exclaimed, “From blonde to brunette (#Nutrisse 53), she embraces transformation beautifully!”  The singer and star of This is Us, Moore, 33, responded on Instagram. “I’ve always LOVED changing my hair (as you can see from these photos.. and trust me there are so many more examples) — but a few years ago, I decided to change my life,” she confessed. “From my work, to my friends, to my relationship with myself. It wasn’t easy, but it paid off. So when Garnier asked me to be the new #GarnierGirl, and open up the conversation about transformation in a fearless way, I jumped at the opportunity.”  Moore represents Nutrisse, Garnier’s home color line for hair.  Her campaign launches on Friday, September 15th.

CryotheraphyWe’ve all heard about the cool Hollywood health craze, cryotherapy.  New York’s KryoLife claims that whole body cryotherapy (WBC) “improves skin tone, reduces signs of aging, manages pain, lowers inflammation, improves athletic performance and can mitigate depression.”  Its been promoted by celebrities such as Derek Hough (above), Minka Kelly, Mandy Moore, and Lindsay Lohan.  However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently has put the “treatment” on ice.  “Given a growing interest from consumers in whole body cryotherapy, the FDA has informally reviewed the medical literature available on this subject,” says Aron Yustein, M.D., a medical officer in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.  “We found very little evidence about its safety or effectiveness in treating the conditions for which it is being promoted.”

According to its report, the FDA was unable to find evidence that WBC effectively treats diseases or conditions like Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, migraines, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, stress, anxiety or chronic pain.   “Based on purported health benefits seen in many promotions for cryotherapy spas, consumers may incorrectly believe that the FDA has cleared or approved WBC devices as safe and effective to treat medical conditions,” says Yustein. In fact, no WBC device has been cleared or approved by the agency in support of these claims.
