JEAN SHAFIROFF BEAUTY SECRETS IN HUFFINGTON POST

Jean Shafiroff





Robi Ludwig, Psy.D., Psychotherapist, Author, TV Commentator & Host wrote this great piece of philanthropist Jean Shafiroff  in The Huffington Post. Here are some excerpts.


Jean Shafiroff is a philanthropist, humanitarian, activist, style icon, and author of SUCCESSFUL PHILANTHROPY: HOW TO MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT YOU GIVE. She has been referred to as one of the First Ladies of Philanthropy in the January 2012 Gotham Magazine article entitled “100 Most Powerful New Yorkers.


 Jean serves on eight charity boards and is an Ambassador for the American Humane. She has been honored by numerous charities for her philanthropic work. In June 2016 Jean received the Humanitarian with Heart Award from the American Heart Association. Jean was also honored in that same year at the Taste of Hope Gala for the American Cancer Society.


 She has graced many magazine covers including Social Life Magazine, NY Lifestyles, Metropolitan and 25A Magazine. She has also been featured in The New York Times’ Style Section in January 2017, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post and many other publications. Jean was raised in Hicksville, Long Island and has lived in New York City most of her life. She is a graduate of the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University ((degree Physical Therapy) and the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University where she received an MBA in Finance.. During her teens, Jean developed a strong compassion for those in need through experiences witnessing under served people and communities.


Here are health tips from Jean Shafiroff that help keep her looking and feeling young, energetic and radiant:


Yoga once per week



“Yoga is wonderful for both the mind and body. When I start to feel that my muscles are getting bulky from other types of exercise, I attend a yoga class to keep them lean. Yoga is also always good for the mind.” For yoga classes, Jean goes to Exhale on Madison Avenue and Ananda when visiting the Hamptons.



2. Don’t eat red meat



Jean opts for fish and chicken instead of red meat. As an animal activist Jean does not like to eat red meat. “During my first year of college I gained twenty pounds. I battled for one year to lose the weight. I decided to stop eating red meat for a variety of reasons. It is fattening and it contains a lot of hormones. I’ve maintained this regimen throughout my life. If I’m at a dinner and red meat is served, I will have a tiny taste. Cutting out red meat has been very helpful with keeping my body at a certain weight.”



3. Find your happy weight and maintain that for your entire life



Once Jean shed that excess college weight, she happily maintained it by weighing herself regularly. “Try to maintain a constant weight throughout your lifetime. Yo-yoing with your weight puts a lot of stress on the body. Of course, you can’t avoid gaining weight when pregnant or if you have an illness. Embrace your own ideal weight regardless of size or shape. You know where you are happiest and most comfortable - so long as your doctor doesn’t tell you that you are grossly overweight. Just be healthy, there are many full-figure models and they look beautiful. The key is to be comfortable in your own skin.” says Jean



4. Avoid medication if possible



When it comes to taking medication, always listen to the advice of your doctor —but sometimes there are alternatives to taking medicine regularly. “Certain medications can cause major weight gain. I try to take as little medication as possible. If you have an everyday ache or pain, try putting ice on the affected area instead of reaching for a pain medication. Of course, if you need an antibiotic take it but take a probiotic as well.”



5. Don’t eat yogurt that is high in fat and sugar



“When I stopped eating high-fat sweet yogurts, I lost weight fast. I am careful about eating too much yogurt.”



6. Eat smaller portions



“European food portions are half the size of what a person consumes in the USA. I don’t believe in large portions. People should eat slowly and cut portions in half. I don’t believe in depriving yourself of anything you love either. If you crave chocolate have a small piece to get it out of your system. I go on the scale everyday of my life, if I’m two pounds heavier, it means I have to eat less food.” Jean says.



7. Eat arugula




Jean makes sure to include plenty of bitter greens in her diet including kale and arugula which she says reduces cravings for sweets.



8. Drink the right kind of water



Jean is an advocate for drinking plenty of water, but bottled and filtered water only. “There is a lot of chlorine in tap water and a direct connection between high chlorine content and cancer. My mother and grandmother had breast cancer.” It obviously makes sense to drink clean filtered water without a high amount of chemicals.



9. Make your own fresh juice



Rather than buying juice, Jean makes her own at home using the Breville machine. Juice purchased in the store often has large amounts of added sugar and preservatives. “This morning I juiced one orange and two organic carrots. And the juice machine is so strong it only takes 2 minutes.



10. Buy ALL organic fruits and vegetables.



Jean buys organic produce. Yes, it’s an investment as obviously organic foods cost more than conventional foods, but it comes without all the pesticides and those just aren’t good for our health.



11. Enjoy wine



Jean enjoys a little glass of red wine each night.



12. Use a good sunscreen



Jean explains how a strong sunblock is important. “I suggest using a more natural based sunscreen that doesn’t have copious amounts of chemicals; we don’t need that on our skin. I want to save my skin and want others to do the same.” And Jean rarely goes in the sun at all. She has maintained this discipline since she was in her 20’s It has helped her keep her skin looking clear and wrinkle free.



13. Less is more



“I recommend less is more. I straighten my hair once per year, and try to make it last. My hair is very healthy and I want to keep it that way. For the skin, you can never apply too much moisturizer unless you have a tendency to break out. Use natural products. Products do not have to be expensive. They just needs to nourish the skin. Put cream on both your body and face before bed.



14. Workout your body



“I go to a one-hour workout class 5-6 times per week to keep my body toned. Exercise is very important not just physically but also emotionally. Working out with light weights are good for toning. Heavy weights may cause you to bulk up. I don’t believe in very difficult exercise regimes. . I stretch, I do aerobics and balance it all with light weigh training. If you want to live a long life you have to have a limber and stretched body.” Jean can still do splits!



15. Get enough sleep.



Jean says it’s extremely important to get 7-8 hours of sleep at an absolute minimum. “When I get less I’m not as happy. I believe in working hard. I am on the board of 8 charities. This requires hard work. If I am well rested the work becomes easier. If I have an opportunity to take a nap, I’ll do it.”



16. Get plenty of good clean air



“It’s important to be in good clean air. Open the windows. If you live in a large city and are worried about pollution, open the windows at night when there is less traffic. I use a humidifier in the winter. Fortunately, I have the opportunity to leave NYC on certain weekends and go to the Hamptons. Central Park is also packed with fresh oxygen from all the trees.”

Bonnie Comley With Jean Shafiroff And Dr. Penny Grant




New York, NY – On the menu at the September 18th Le Cirque Luncheon for The New York Women’s Foundation (The Foundation), hosted by author and philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, was a serious discussion about New York’s criminal justice system and the hardships it inflicts on youth, the poor and those facing mental health challenges, particularly women and their families.



Each year, Ms. Shafiroff brings together a diverse group of women leaders to discuss pressing social issues confronted by The Foundation and its grantee partners. This year, Hon. Jonathan Lippman, Chairman of the Independent Commission on NYC Criminal Justice and Incarceration Reform and Greg Berman, Director of the Center for Court Innovation, spoke about the changes needed to create a criminal justice system in New York that is effective and humane, one that is smart on crime, that protects public safety while treating the accused and the incarcerated, many of whom suffer from mental illness, with decency. The Commission’s report advocated for the closing of Rikers and many other systemic reforms. Judge Lippman talked of the need to make sure “the report doesn't sit on a shelf somewhere,” “to keep the heat up on the politicians” and “to rev up the motor and really get this done.”

Ana Oliveira With Antoinette La Belle




Ana Oliveira, President & CEO of The New York Women’s Foundation, thanked Ms. Shafiroff and the attendees for their generosity and spoke of The Foundation’s commitment to promoting social and economic justice. Ms. Oliveira, who served on Judge Lippman’s commission, said that we have an opportunity to promote justice, and to create a city that does not leave anyone behind by investing in women-led, community-based organizations that are agents of change.



Ms. Shafiroff gave an impassioned plea for prison reform, noting that a disproportionate number of the incarcerated are mentally ill and poor, and that people are not disposable. She spoke of the lost youth who never recover after a stint in Rikers. She praised The Foundation for its work in helping break the cycle of poverty that devastates communities by helping women, because women are the basis of a family and that it is through them, future generations are empowered She urged her guests to continue to support The Foundation.

Greg Berman And Merble Reagon



Guests of Ms. Shafiroff at the invitation-only event, a prelude to The Foundation’s upcoming fall gala on October 2nd at The Plaza, included New York’s notables from the worlds of business, nonprofits and philanthropy. Attendees included New York State Assemblywoman Rebecca Seawright, Mary McCormick, President of the Fund for the City of New York, Marco Maccioni, son of restaurateur Sirio Maccioni, Rachel Hirschfeld, animal rights activist and lawyer, and Bonnie Comley, three-time Tony Award winning producer. Other notables include Natalie Ross, Dawne Marie Grannum, Randi Schatz, Elizabeth Shafiroff, Christine Schott Ledes, Penny Grant, Katlean de Monchy and Paola Bacchini.



The honorees for The New York Women’s Foundation 2017 gala are Judge Lippman, who was the Chief Judge of New York State and the New York Court of Appeals; Emmett D. Carson, Ph.D., CEO of Silicon Valley Community Foundation; Dr. Angela Diaz, Professor and Director of the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center; and Verna Eggleston, head of the Women’s Economic Development initiatives at Bloomberg Philanthropies.

JEAN SHAFIROFF IS COVER FEATURE IN N.Y. LIFESTYLES

Jean Shafiroff





Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was profiled this month in New York Lifestyles Magazine. 



Jean Shafiroff is quick to downplay her accomplishments as a philanthropist, public speaker, and author. But the fact is that she has earned many honors for her efforts as a humanitarian. Even with that fact in mind, she will swiftly tell you that it was only through hard work and teamwork that she is able to fundraise and chair several charity events each year as she does. Her book, Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life By What You Give (Hatherleigh Press), gathers her years of expertise into a guide on how to be a philanthropist through time, knowledge, and available financial resources. She brings awareness to notable charitable causes, including the ones that she has devoted her life to women’s rights, animal rights, and children’s welfare.




Shafiroff sits on the boards of the New York City Mission Society, New York Women’s Foundation, French Heritage Society, Couture Council (Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology), Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services. Also, there’s Southampton Animal Shelter Honorary Board, Southampton Bath and Tennis Club Charitable Foundation, and Global Strays, a nonprofit founded by her daughter, Elizabeth Shafiroff, and Lindsey Spielfogal. Additionally, she has been appointed as an ambassador for the American Humane Society. Shafiroff holds an MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University and a BS in physical therapy from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

THE ZANG TOI FASHION WEEK MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION

 ****
FASHION WEEK NYC

Jean Shafiroff With Zang Toi
 
Patti Labelle With Ivana Trump



Bella Oelmann With David Foster, Kimberly Guilfoyle And Bill Hemmer



Zang Toi's fabulous Spring 2018 collection was shown at Skylight Clarkson Square last night for fashion week. 



 Zang is a Malaysian born designer who is known to dress royalty and society -- and is one of those fashion stars whom everybody adores. Zang is famous for his elaborately embroidered velvet capes and caftans but today he showed he was a proficient designer who can master all genres. The clothing was much more demure than a typical Zang show but the beauty was still there. Zang is a perfectionist and it showed in every aspect of the presentation including the Zang Toi heels and jewelry chokers that adorned the model's necks. Zang is a master at color blocking and today he mixed emerald green and black, turquoise and white, green and gray, and white and black. He even showed his mastery of pants with an embroidered green sequined butterfly design that adorned gray silk pants. His use of taffeta, silk and cotton was luxuriously elegant and the crowd loved the collection.

Zang Toi Fashion



 Some of the luminaries who attended included: Ivana Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Patti Labelle, Jean Shafiroff, Carol Alt, and David Foster David Foster, the legendary music producer, said he could easily see fashion icon Celine Dion in one of the diaphanous gowns and loved the movement of the clothing. Phillip Bloch, Melania Trump's friend, was also fond of the collection and said he would love to style the new first lady since he considers her a close friend and wishes the President would take some fashion cues from Melania.



 It is fair to say Zang, with this collection, increased his audience by including a more understated pared down look that a twenty something in St. Tropez could easily wear. He also added some whimsical touches such as the handkerchief skirt that Zang sketch printed on and the green diaphanous skirt that hung from the black and white dress-the Sade background music added to the sultriness of these pieces. There was still plenty of opulence including the black velvet gown with an emerald green bodice, and the silk princess coat with emerald taffeta that concluded the collection; but this presentation showed Zang is one of those designers that can expand his breadth and increase his audience. If that wasn't exciting enough, guests headed to 1046 Lexington Avenue to celebrate the opening of the new Zang Toi boutique-another notch in Zang's ever expanding empire.

Mrs. Shafiroff, and IFC Films hosted the New York premiere of IFC Films’ Rebel In The Rye.



In Rebel in the Rye, actor Nicholas Hoult brings young, reclusive author J.D. Salinger to life. The film tells the true story of how Holden Caulfield – the fictional character in J.D.‘s famous 1951 novel “The Catcher in the Rye” – was created.



Notable attendees included: Jean Shafiroff, Nicholas Hoult, Zoey Deutch, Amy Rutberg, Brian d’Arcy James, Caitlin Mehner, Will Rogers, Jenny Ashman, director/writer Danny Strong, producers Bruce Cohen, Trent Luckinbill, Thad Luckinbill, Jason Shuman, executive producers Christina Papagjika, Matthew Salloway, Ellen Schwartz, Kristen Stewart, Harry Connick Jr., Erich Bergen, Paul Haggis, Riley Keough, Brigitte Lacombe, Abbey Lee, Barry Levinson, Thomas Matthews, Jennifer Morrison, Lesli Margherita, Daphne Oz, Jim Parrack, Ben Shenkman, Tristine Skyler, Whit Stillman, Jean Shafiroff, Alina Puscau, Adam David Thompson, and Avanti Gupta.



About Rebel In The Rye


The world of legendary writer J. D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this revealing look at the experiences that shaped one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time. Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, Rebel in the Ryefollows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life. Costarring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson, Rebel in the Rye offers a tantalizing window into the life and times of a little-understood genius who broke the rules and redefined American literature.

JEAN SHAFIROFF STUNNING ON SOCIAL LIFE COVER

****
HAMPTON'S BEST COVERS
****

Jean Shafiroff In Social Life



Social Life -- Jean Shafiroff ’s world may seem filled with glamorous
charity balls, but the reality of her day-to-day life is filled with
hard work. The author and humanitarian brings a strong consideration
for people and animals to all that she does for charities
in the Hamptons and beyond. Shafiroff, who was most
recently honored by the Southampton Animal Shelter, wholeheartedly
dedicates herself to elevating several causes. She does
this by chairing or otherwise organizing memorable fundraisers
with humility and grace. She also gives generously of her
own time and resources. Her goal? To inspire potential donors’
