How To Pamper Yourself for Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time to give yourself some much-needed TLC. Regardless if you’re in a relationship or not, we could all use a designated day—or maybe a week—to kick back and relax. Aside from treating yourself to a box of chocolates, there are plenty of small things you can do to celebrate the holiday of love this year that is way more satisfying than watching a cheesy rom com.

Take a bath

After a long day at work, there’s nothing quite as relaxing as a warm bath to soak your stress away. Not only does submerging yourself in water help you sleep better, but also it helps loosen any tight muscles, especially if you toss in Mama Mio Liquid Yoga Restorative Bath Soak ($32.99). As the name indicates, this soak eases your body like yoga would by using a blend of calming essential oils like lavender and citrus lemon peel. To create an even dreamier ambience, light a soothing candle like NEST Fragrances Classic Candle in Vanilla Orchid & Almond ($38.99). We warn you though—you may never want to leave your bathtub.

Do yoga outside

If you don’t have time for a bath, we recommend a quick outdoor yoga session in the morning. Practicing yoga is great for your overall health as it clears your mind and gets you ready for the day. Not sure how to do it? No worries—there are a gazillion videos on YouTube to help you out. Just make sure to set your mat on a shaded spot either in your backyard or a nearby park. Don’t forget to also bring a good SPF. Image Skincare Prevention+Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizer SPF 50 ($27.89) works wonders as it offers both UVA and UVB protection, ensuring that your face is covered from the elements. Always namaste away from sun damage!

Get your glow on

We’re told to drink about half a gallon of water each day, but let’s be realistic: That goal can be pretty hard to reach most of the time. Fortunately, you can achieve hydrated skin while you sleep by quenching it with GLAMGLOW ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment ($50.99). A single use of this mask is all it takes to give your skin an instant boost and make it look like you’re glowing from within. Apply it the night before Valentine’s Day to ensure silky, smooth skin that will enhance any date makeup look.

Put your best face on
Skip the spa—you can give yourself an at-home mini facial by using Peter Thomas Roth Facial On The Go ($18.99). This set allows you to recreate the professional experience in the comfort of your room with just four gel products. Before getting started though, take a hot shower to open up the pores for maximum effectiveness. Ingredients such as glycolic acid will brighten your skin while hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts gives your skin the moisture it needs. Our personal favorite is the peeling gel, which visibly rolls away dead skin cells. Great for normal skin types, it’s an easy way to bring life back into your skin without putting a dent in your wallet.

Valentine’s Day: The Dos and Don’ts of Gifting Skincare Products

When it comes to gifting your beloved on Valentine’s Day, you consider yourself something of an expert—until it comes to surprising your special someone with skincare products. Giving someone the gift of a healthier complexion is definitely a tricky proposition. But there are great ways to give your number one a skin-focused gift all in the name of showing just how much you care. Here’s what to do, what to give—and oh, yes…what not to do!

For Dry Skin

Don’t…bore them with a bunch of rules that they need to follow, like avoiding hot showers and drinking more water. They already know, trust us.

 

Do…give them the best of the best. No one will be offended when you present them with a hyper-moisturizing product that drenches their skin with the hydration they need. Try a top-of-the-line treatment that they might not consider on their own, such as Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream ($36.59). It’s formulated to keep skin soft for up to three full days, which means it’s a miracle worker for anyone with a dehydrated complexion.

For Tired Ski

Don’t…comment on their tired eyes or pale skin. And by all means, don’t tell them to smile!

Do…be the hero that provides them with the change they need to see an improvement. When you gift them with a cult favorite that everyone loves, they’ll be thrilled. We’re partial to GLAMGLOW FlashMud Brightening Treatment ($47.93), a powerhouse mask that instant rejuvenates lackluster skin while leaving it softer. With regular use, skin appears more even and dark spots fade.

For Acne

Don’t…worry too much about giving a skin care gift to someone with acne. They know they have it—and they’ll highly appreciate something that works.

Do…try something that’s not in their usual line of vision. You won’t find iS clinical Acne Travel Kit ($98.99) at a drugstore or mass market retailer. Tucked inside a sleek travel bag, your recipient will find generous deluxe sizes of a cleanser, an SPF 50 moisturizer, and two potent serums. Used together, they’ll heal existing blemishes and help prevent new breakouts from forming.

For Sensitivity

Don’t…try to explain the gift as a solution to their “problem.” Skin care is tricky to give, but if you know the sensitive-skinned person well enough, you’ll be fine.

Do…put some thought into it. A product for sensitive skin needs to be formulated specifically with ingredients that nurture and soothe. Avoid heavy fragrances and additives that might cause irritation. Look for key words that suggest something gentle, like Glo Skin Beauty Healing Gel ($25.99). It’s an exceptional choice for anyone with skin that’s easily disturbed—and “healing” is a joy for anyone with deep sensitivity.

For Anyone

Don’t…try to figure out their skin problems and choose a random product that they may never use.

Do…focus on luxury instead. When you’re shopping for someone you don’t know quite so well or who is somewhat picky, it’s best to stick with a classy gift like the DermOrganic Skin Care Sampler ($8.89). Made with certified organic ingredients, the products are fragrance-free, cruelty-free, and infused with argan oil. Simple and skin-loving, this set contains a facial lotion, a facial cleanser, and a hand and body lotion.

 

New Year, New You: 5 Beauty Resolutions to Keep

We know: It’s easy to make a New Year’s resolution. The hard part is actually keeping it. How many times have you sworn you’ll go to bed earlier, lose five pounds, stop buying a latte every morning, and work out regularly? We’ve definitely all been there. In the interest of punching up 2018 and making it the absolute best year ever (positive thoughts breed positive results!), we’re ready to kick things into high gear with our five top beauty resolutions for the year—that you can actually keep. Here we go.

 

Less Heat Styling

This one doesn’t sound all that exciting, we know. Where would be without our flat irons and blowdryers? The problem is that all of those heat-blasting tools do a number on your hair over time. So while it’s completely fine to use them occasionally, you’ll do your hair a huge favor by cutting usage just a bit and adding TIGI S Factor Body Booster Plumping Spray ($13.29) to your routine. It works by amplifying lackluster locks at the roots, so you can enjoy a fresh, just-washed look even if you really shampooed yesterday. No heat styling tools needed!

Basic Neck Care

It’s one of the most overlooked areas of the body, but it’s also one of the most telling. The neck is often a dead giveaway of aging skin, primarily because the skin is so thin. Fine lines and wrinkles seem to develop almost overnight, and skin seems to loosen and lose its luster. Make it a point to add a smoothing product to your routine, such as Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Moisturizing Neck Cream ($36.89). Enriched with sugar cane-derived glycolic acid, this natural alpha hydroxyl cream drenches skin with moisture while improving the appearance of aging skin.

Break the Habit

It’s one thing to have a favorite lip color, but it’s quite another to marry it because you’re too afraid to branch out and experiment with your look. If you fantasize about shaking up your makeup routine every now and then, invest in a tube or two of boldly colored lipsticks that dare to take you in an entirely different direction. We love Youngblood Intimatte Mineral Matte Lipstick ($14.99) for this reason—it delivers the kind of no-fuss, check-me-out color that you can’t help but admire on someone else. The only difference is that this year, you’re the one rocking this fearless hue.

Enjoy Me Time

If there’s one resolution you should absolutely keep in 2018, it’s to take better care of your emotional health. Whether that means giving yourself the occasional mental health day to unwind or immersing yourself in a tub full of Mama Mio Liquid Yoga Restorative Bath Soak ($32.99), you’ll feel the difference in both the short- and long-term when you allow yourself to relax in the comfort of soothing oils and healing salts. It’s that combination that’s both rejuvenating and uplifting, and it’s ideal even if you just want to reduce your stress or shake off the day’s difficulties. Bonus: Your skin feels amazing when you’re done.

Practice Foot Care

All too often, we neglect our feet simply because they’re encased in socks and shoes. But what if you gave them the same attention you did, say, your face or your hands? You’d be walking on sunshine! Start now and your feet will look pretty much perfect in weeks—and certainly in time for your springtime pedicure. If excessive dryness is a concern, as it is for many during winter, try Baby Foot Deep Exfoliation for Feet Peel ($18.99). In just about seven days, you’ll enjoy softer, truly baby soft feet—without a hint of that old dryness in sight. It’s worth it even if it’s a little out of your comfort zone.

New Year, New You! We’re celebrating 2018 with a fabulous sale on your favorite brands and products. Save big on some of the year’s hottest beauty loot, and prepare to make all of your resolutions a reality.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re excited to celebrate with a slew of get-gorgeous beauty products designed to make you look and feel your best. We aren’t just limited to cosmetics, skin care, and hair care, either—beauty doesn’t discriminate, after all. We’ve also got glam goodies for the home. Most importantly, there’s something for every single person on your list. Here’s what we’re loving this holiday season.

 

 

For Luxe Travels…

Perfect for jetting off to Europe during spring, the John Masters Organics Essential Travel Kit for Hair and Body ($24.99) contains everything needed to get through the trip in style. Tucked inside the sleek zippered pouch are two-ounce bottles of geranium/grapefruit body milk, geranium/grapefruit body wash, lavender rosemary shampoo, and citrus/neroli detangler. Not only will they feel fabulous, they’ll also smell incredible.

 

For Upscale Cleansing…

Who knew makeup removal could be such a posh experience? With the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter ($35.99) in her arsenal, she’ll never go to bed without washing her face again. Made with nourishing turmeric, hydrating chamomile, and gentle honey, this lovely blend melts on contact to effectively remove all traces of makeup, debris, and impurities. It even looks gorgeous, something that can’t be said for the boring tubes crowding her makeup cabinet.

 

For Bathing Beauties…

Showering is infinitely more enjoyable when there’s something wonderfully scented awaiting you. That’s why Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Soapy Suds ($26.99) is a guaranteed gift winner. The body wash is not only packed with uplifting notes of crisp citrus and awakening spices, but it’s also perfect for brightening up those tired, bleary-eyed mornings when nothing seems possible without a shower. This is the ultimate lift-me-up, and the scent is versatile enough for both men and women to enjoy.

 

For Makeup Junkies…

What do you give the makeup junkie who has everything? Try the Youngblood Glowy Cheek Essentials Kit ($39.99). It’s filled with everything she needs to achieve a warm, healthy, bright complexion. The set includes a creamy blush in a rich shade of coral-pink, plus a blush brush and a radiant moisturizing tint designed to drench the skin with hydration while also leaving behind a hint of natural, luminous color. During winter, it’s one of the easiest ways to brighten up.

 

For Happy Homes…

Whether for the hostess or the new homeowner, the NEST Fragrances Luxury Votive Gift Set ($40.99) is the ultimate surprise in every way. Packed inside a gorgeous gift box are six mini votive candles in bamboo, grapefruit, Sicilian tangerine, ocean mist/sea salt, cedar leaf/lavender, and Moroccan amber. Each votive is housed in a sleek black container that adds a touch of subtle sophistication to any room, from the kitchen to the bedroom to the bathroom.

 

For Skin Saviors…

We all know that one person who tries every single new skin care product on the market. The NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device ($136.99) is the best possible surprise for anyone obsessed with a great complexion. On contact with the skin, the portable machine delivers gentle microcurrents that work to effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With regular use, the appearance of the skin’s tone is also improved. The set includes a primer gel to make it easy to use.

 

For OMG Hair…

If you or someone you love absolutely covets magazine cover-worthy hair (and really, who doesn’t?), the Bio Ionic Whisper Light Dryer ($104.89) is practically essential. It delivers high-powered heat in shorter-than-average time, meaning that drenched hair is no match for this wonder tool. In addition to its quick-dry functionality, it also performs in relatively quiet mode. The ionic feature ensures that hair feels softer and stays in better shape, even with regular usage and exposure to heat.

Skincare 101: Why You Need to Add Collagen to Your Routine

of collagen as the glue that keeps your skin strong and elastic. As we age, our natural collagen production slows, which results in those pesky fine lines and wrinkles that are so stubborn and often difficult to control. Lack of collagen can also cause skin to sag, which is another key sign of aging. You may also experience a reduction of this vital protein if you smoke, ingest lots of sugar, or spend excessive time in the sun.

The good news is that you can still revitalize your skin by increasing its exposure to products that are infused with collagen. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we’re big believers in the power of collagen and its ability to transform your skin. Here are our favorite products, all formulated to give aging skin the necessary boost it needs to achieve a more youthful, fresher complexion.

The Murad Age Reform Rapid Collagen Infusion ($59.99) is ideal for use on the face and neck, two key areas where signs of aging are most prominent. This product is known for its ability to work faster than average, which means that within a couple of hours of smoothing the lotion on, your skin will feel smoother and look marvelously better. The lightweight lotion is designed to plump up thinned out skin and restore a radiant look. It’s packed with antioxidants, which help combat harmful free radicals that contribute to ongoing signs of aging. It’s also a powerful moisturizer—and remember, the softer your skin, the younger it looks.

Don’t forget about your lips, which are equally susceptible to aging due to collagen loss. The Murad Age Reform Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips ($22.99) is designed for easy use and promises big results. Fine lines on the lips will be a memory after you smooth on this gloss-like balm that is infused with moisturizing hyaluronic acid and plumping mustard sprouts, which improve circulation so that your lips look fuller and healthier. If your lips are naturally dry, you’ll appreciate the addition of shea butter—it’s extremely potent and leaves lips pillow-soft to the touch.

It’s clear to see why collagen is such an essential part of the skin’s overall health. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find a wide variety of products infused with this very necessary ingredient. Shop them all here!

How To: Get Your Guy A Gift He Will Actually Use

It can be real tough to get it right when it comes to gift giving for a husband, boyfriend, father, or friend. Instead of buying the same old thing (like a tie that they’ll wear once), I think the trick is to think about useful and practical gifts for men. So, instead of buying men gifts you think they’ll like because you do, buy them something that they’ll actually use in their day-to-day lives. Here are some ideas to help you surprise that special guy in your life.

 

Guys love grooming more than they like to admit. The Jack Black First Class Five Travel Set ($47.99) comes with five skincare essentials to keep your man well-groomed and looking his best on-the-go. Make this a stocking stuffer and watch him as he takes pride in using it!

 

Another great option could be the Johnny B A.M. After Shave Spray ($12.89) It will make shaving feel extra luxurious for him. Think hot shaves at the barbershop, but right from the comfort of their home. Plus, you will love the scented notes of citrus on his face. This aftershave spray also closes skin pores opened by the hot water from his shave, to keep his skin looking great all day after.

 

 

Let’s face it, men can be more than a bit touchy about their hair. They don’t want to use a million and one products to get the right look. Instead get them the only product they will need to get their look. The Short Sexy Hair Hard Up Holding Gel ($9.99) provides an extra-firm hold, especially for short hairstyles. Trust me, he will love this product for everyday use.

Shakespeare famously wrote, “He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man.” That may be a little extreme, but if your man happens to measure up against the bard’s beard bar, he certainly would appreciate a potion like Jack Black Beard Oil ($22.99). This beard oil is formulated with kalahari melon oil, vitamin E, brown algae, and carrot extract to condition facial hair and nourish skin underneath.

Now that you have some gift ideas, you can surprise that special guy for the holidays with a gift he will truly appreciate!

What to Do When Your Skin Freaks Out

We’ve all been there. One day your skin is completely fine, and the next morning it looks like something out of a horror movie. Whether it’s an unfortunate allergic reaction to something mysterious, a surprise breakout on your chin, or some ruddiness that doesn’t seem to want to budge, there’s no easy way around the fact that your skin is simply freaking out. The good news is that we have some solutions for your serious skin woes. Here’s what to do when…

 

Your Lips Are Chapped  

You try your best to handle your lip game. And usually it’s pretty easy to keep them moist, but during the colder months of the year your skin—including your lips—has a mind of its own. To the rescue comes Glo Skin Beauty Lip Revival ($25.99). This high-impact treatment is formulated to drench lips with moisture and improve moisture levels so that your lips stay softer for longer. Use it at night to obtain lasting results.

Your Acne Scars Are In Effect

Acne scars don’t just develop overnight, but if you’ve just recovered from a serious breakout there’s a good chance you’re dealing with some lingering pigmentation issues. Bid farewell to that dark spot by applying SkinCeuticals Phyto+ ($78.99), a highly effective lightening gel enriched with natural ingredients designed to gently lighten skin in the areas that need it most. It’s free of hydroquinone, too, which means it’s great even for the most sensitive skin types.

Your Dryness Is Unstoppable

Winter has a habit of wreaking havoc on the skin, and it often seems like no matter how much you treat it you can’t quite stay on top of all of the dryness. The Revision Skincare Hydrating Serum ($55.99) makes an amazing addition to any dry-skin routine. Don’t be fooled by its lightweight consistency; it’s loaded with moisturizing ingredients that flood your skin with hydration and give it a plump, healthy finish. Use it before bed to combat dryness and signs of premature aging.

 

Your Skin Is Bright Red

There’s nothing like waking up, refreshed from a great night’s sleep, only to discover that your complexion resembles Rudolph’s nose. While it’s tempting to just slather on several layers of makeup and go about your day, that won’t exactly solve the problem in the long run. Treat your ruddiness with La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 ($11.99). It’s formulated to gently heal even the most sensitive skins, even those recovering from procedures or suffering from dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis.

Your Acne Is Out of Control

Stubborn acne is an annoying skin woe that can often seem insurmountable. Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots ($21.99) are infused with salicylic acid and tea tree oil and are designed to target only the skin that’s affected. This helps reduce the telltale dryness that many acne medications cause, while effectively treating even the most difficult blemishes. Wear them throughout the night, or during the day if you don’t plan to leave the house.

How To Restore Skin After Summer

Barbecues, beach days, hiking trips, pool time — all that good summer fun left your skin baking in the sun’s direct rays! While there is no substitute for good sun protection, the good news for those who have suffered environmental damage from sun exposure is that there are a number of things we can do to heal our skin after the effects of summer.

A chapped face can be a painful side effect of dry, air-conditioned houses during the summer months. To heal chapped spots, we recommend using a rich moisturizer like Decleor Aroma Sun Expert High Repair After Sun Face Balm 0.5 oz ($27.99) that provides 24 hours of hydration for your face. It is great to apply it evenly on face after sun exposure.

If your lips also suffer because of high temperatures and your beach days, Jane Iredale LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm ($10.99) creates a kissable, supple pout. Nourishing avocado oil protects and moisturizes as emollients, vitamin e soothes and protects from free radicals. Yes, it is as good as it sounds!

Almost everyone has experienced the redness and inflammation that comes from direct overexposure to the sun. The best treatment, of course, is prevention. Make sure that anytime you go outside you are wearing a sunscreen like Elta MD UV Daily Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 ($24.19) this is a tinted facial sunscreen. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, it helps protect skin and hydrates to boost moisture retention.  Ideal for normal, combination, and post-procedure skin, it can be worn alone or under makeup.

Once your skin has been burned, you need to repair it with certain products and ingredients like Vitamin C, the Glo Therapeutics 15% Vitamin C Serum ($65.99) visibly transforms skin’s clarity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and it is a great treatment to recover skin after the summer. You can also use the Revision Vitamin C Lotion 15% ($58.99) that is a daily antioxidant for brighter skin, formulated with the most advanced form of Vitamin C for healthy, radiant skin.

 

Believe it or not, being exposed to the sun also promotes dark spots. In fact, during the summer time (and some months after if you don’t take care of your skin) is when you can see this dark spots at its most intense moment.Murad Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum 1 oz ($38.99) corrects stubborn dark spots and uneven complexions. Results are sustained over a long period of time while it brightens the complexion.

Summer days are now over, so it is time to take some time apart from the beach to take care of your skin!

The Ultimate Guide to Lazy-Girl Makeup

It’s tough to put on a full face every day, but sometimes you’re also not quite comfortable leaving the house without spackling on the foundation. The good news is that you don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to pull off a pulled together look—in fact, there’s a really comfortable in-between place that makes it easy to achieve a flattering look. Even if you’re feeling extra lazy and less than enthusiastic about applying concealer, meticulously doing your lips, or packing on the eyeshadow, you can make this work for you. Here, is our ultimate guide to lazy-girl makeup.

It Starts With Your Skin

A great look begins with flawless skin—but you don’t need to commit to an hour-long session with a foundation brush, concealer, and some sort of thick paint-like foundation. Instead, invest in a high-quality tinted moisturizer that is designed to conceal imperfections, hydrate, and generate a smooth and elegant canvas for the rest of your makeup. A formula like bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream ($26.99) takes its job seriously: It’s a little bit of everything all rolled into one, including BB, CC, and tinted moisturizer. Feel free to add an extra layer for deeper coverage. It’s especially comforting for drier skin types.

Time needed: 2 minutes

The Eyes Have It

Whether you’re genuinely lazy or just in a rush, you probably don’t have time to sit down with your collection of makeup brushes and artfully render a runway-worthy eye look. And we don’t want that for you, either, which is why we’re so excited about the Tigi Cosmetics Cream Eyeshadow in Bubbly ($17.29). This shade, in particular, is the ultimate choice when you’re not feeling it—it instantly brightens up tired eyes, which in turn helps wake up your whole face. It’s a no-crease formula with some light shimmer, and the easy cream-to-powder formula is ideal to smooth on and go.  Time needed: 1 minute

 Get a Little Cheeky

There’s nothing like a dual-purpose product that effectively handles multiple needs at once. Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($16.99) is a one-stop-shop for your complexion and your lips. Available in three colors, it’s easy to apply directly from the tube. Simply swirl it onto the apples of your cheeks, blend, and watch a beautifully natural flush appear. Then add a bit to your lips for an equally natural finish. This is a great option for anyone who prefers a pared-down makeup collection, doesn’t want to bother with hefty brushes, and doesn’t really care much about the precise application.

Time needed: 1 minute

A Pop for Your Pout

Never underestimate the power of a kiss of color on your lips. If you have time for nothing else, make this the one step you do take before you go about your day. We recommend a brightening lip balm that leaves behind just a tint so that you don’t have to concern yourself with issues like going outside of your natural lip line or what might happen if you apply sight unseen while on the go. bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($14.99) is ideal for this purpose. It’s available in eight hues, all of which deliver just the right amount of color and leave behind a stain-like finish. And because it’s not drying, your lips with feel soft and look healthy all day long.

Time needed: 45 seconds

Take It All Off

The last step on the lazy girl’s agenda? Removing the makeup, of course. The good news is that since you don’t wear a lot, it won’t really take you long at all to remove it—but it is important to get it all off before you hit the sack. We love Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt Cleanser ($18.99) because it gets to work on contact. Made with seven essential oils, it transitions from a smooth gel to a lightweight oil as you massage it into your skin. Simply blend in, rinse off, and pat dry.

Time needed: 2 minutes

The Power of Scent

Essential oils and herbs add a hint of fragrance to your beauty products, but there’s more to them than that. Did you know that they actually serve a functional purpose, too? At TheBeautyPlace.com, we’re serious purveyors of scent—and the powerful effects they have on our skin and spirits. Here’s, a selection of our favorite products:

 

John Masters Organics Lavender & Palmarosa Body Scrub ($15.99): Summer is skin-baring season, which means you’re probably shaving daily and (hopefully) moisturizing regularly. One way to ensure that your skin stays smooth is to use a body scrub that gently sloughs off dead skin. This scrub contains organic sugar, hydrating palmarosa leaf, and calming lavender.

 

Did you know? Lavender helps relax the body and mind. Studies show that it may help reduce blood pressure and promote better sleep. To reap the benefits of this scrub, enjoy a shower before bedtime (well worth it if you’ve spent the entire day at the beach!) and breathe in its aromatic scent. You’ll notice a remarkable change in how well you sleep.

 

Peter Thomas Roth Chamomile Cleansing Lotion ($25.99): Sensitive skin types demand a gentle cleanser that will effectively remove oil and makeup without stripping the skin. This formula is non-drying and designed to soothe skin and leave it smoother and softer. It contains natural herbal extracts, as well as gentle chamomile to help calm redness and irritation.

 

Did you know? Chamomile is a natural healing agent. The plant’s leaves contain a variety of therapeutic oils and potent, free radical-busting antioxidants. For skin that inflamed or otherwise irritated, it may help reduce the symptoms and promote quicker healing.

 

Jane Iredale Smell The Roses Hydration Spray ($25.99): Few scents capture romance, peace, and elegance as well as hypnotic rose. This spray is more than a traditional perfume—it’s designed to drench your complexion with hydration and reduce redness and irritation that may develop after a long day of sun exposure. Use it to brighten your skin throughout the day, set your makeup, or as a fragrance when you want something light and pleasant.

 

Did you know? Rose is considered one of the most powerful essential oils in the world. It’s known as an antiseptic, and it can help control excess oil production and balance your skin’s pH levels.

 

Rusk Sensories Clarify Rosemary & Quillaja Detoxifying Shampoo ($10.99): Do you ever look in the mirror and wish there was a personal stylist behind you working her magic? Consider this shampoo a substitute. It’s enriched with quillaja (a natural soap) and rosemary, which may help stimulate your hair’s growth. At the very least, it will give your hair a little boost at the root and help revive it.

 

Did you know? Rosemary is thought to nourish and treat damaged scalps, which is why it’s often found in various hair care formulas. In addition to stimulating growth, it might even delay hair loss, treat dandruff, or reduce graying. If your scalp is typically dry or flaky, rosemary makes an excellent addition to your routine.

 

Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang Purifying Oil Serum ($37.79): Nourishing facial oils can have an incredible effect on the skin, particularly this one that is designed to reduce oil buildup and balance your complexion. As an addition to your regular routine, add two drops twice a day to your skin and gently massage it into the skin to reap its rewards.

 

Did you know? Ylang ylang boosts circulation and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It may help reduce inflammation, treat skin infections, and even normalize skin that suffers from eczema or seborrhea. Both conditions are the result of irregular oil production, which in turn creates the conditions’ telltale itchy, peeling patches.
