When Dwayne Johnson isn’t filming or promoting movies he allows himself a little fun. The “Pain & Gain” star told USA Today he is giving in to his “tech geek” tendencies with the Snapseed photo-enhancing app on his smartphone. The onetime UM football hero recently posted a coolly tweaked pic of himself weightlifting. Makes a nice screensaver. Thanks, Dwayne!
Going to the tap is free and convenient, but when you feel like you need a little oomph with your H20, look to Hint Water. Steve Angello of soon to disband Swedish House Mafia swigged the watermelon flavor backstage during the electronica trio’s “One Last Tour” in California. The guys requested crates of the zero-cal, sugarless liquid while gigging at Ultra, too. Hydrating does a musician good. If only they’d stay together. Whole Foods, Fresh Market. www.drinkhint.com
Shoppers at Ulta may be intrigued by a new line of products that can help you look — and stay — the gorgeous person you are. Own Skincare has a patent to use conjugated linoleic acid, a clinically tested natural compound derived from the safflower plant that activates the body’s ability to retain moisture, activate cell renewal and repair collagen structure. They may look fancy but retail for under $25. www.ownproducts.com
Addicted to salty sweet? So is Katy Perry. The “Wide Awake” songstress helped formulate the taste of a speciality popchips flavor called Katy’s Kettle Corn. Perry based the recipe on her favorite childhood snack and also designed the glittery hot pink bag. Don’t think she’s gaining weight over her split from John Mayer. These poppers have half the fat of fried chips. At Publix, Walgreens, Target.
