How to Air Dry Your Hair Like a Pro

Ask anyone who’s a slave to heat styling tools: It is downright brutal trying to blow dry hair when it’s hot outside. The end result usually isn’t as appealing as it would otherwise be, either—you usually have to grapple with an inordinate amount of frizz and poof thanks to the unbearable humidity. One way to avoid this problem is to simply go natural and air dry your mane. While it’s not the norm for everyone, it’s a great habit to adopt—not only can it prevent unsightly frizz, but it’s also better for your hair’s long-term health. Here, our tips for air drying like a pro!

Consider your towel:
First, be sure to extract as much water from your damp hair as possible. Pat it gently—don’t rub roughly the way you may guiltily do on occasion, or you’ll create stubborn frizz right off the bat—and do so while it’s still very wet. This will shorten your air-drying time. If you don’t have a soft, microfiber towel, try a cotton T-shirt, instead.

Comb it out:
Many make the mistake of using a basic hairbrush to detangle wet strands. The problem there is that it harshly tugs on your hair and causes breakage. Use a wide-tooth comb or a Wet Brush ($7.99) to gently yet effectively loosen tangles. The brush is specially designed to manage wet hair without causing damage, and it promotes healthier hair so that, over time, you’ll notice fewer split ends and far less breakage.

Curly hair:
Is your hair curly—in other words, a bit hard to manage even on the best of days? You absolutely need some substantial product to successfully air dry your hair. Try TIGI Curlesque Strong Mousse ($14.99) to help maintain control of wild curls. Simply apply it to your wet hair beginning at the ends and rake your fingers upward slowly. Scrunch gently with a cupped hand for best results.

Kinky hair:
A smoothing product is key to successfully air drying kinky hair without a lot of fuss. Minimize the possibility of unruliness by applying Joico JoiLotion Sculpting Lotion ($12.99), a light yet highly effective product that applies medium-strength hold to your hair for a summer-friendly finish that won’t weigh down your locks. The alcohol-free formula won’t dry out your hair—instead, it boosts shine and allows your strands to dry smoothly.

Straight hair:
Straight hair may dry finely and limply, so it’s important to apply a product that helps boost volume and create body. TIGI S Factor Body Booster Plumping Spray ($13.29) leaves behind soft strands, yet still amplifies hair at the root. For best results, dunk your head and apply to the roots, then use your fingers to gently lift strands. (Bonus: You can apply it when your hair dries for a little extra boost, too!)

Why we Should Change our Skincare During the Warmer months

Days get longer, weather gets warmer, and there are so many outdoor activities to do. Oh yes, the summer season is finally here! With the excitement of beach trips, barbecues, and music festivals crowding your headspace, your skin — and taking care of it — cannot take a backseat on your list of to-dos. Our skin has different needs with the change of seasons. Temperature, humidity, and sun exposure play a role in how skin behaves, so pay attention to the following tips and learn how to keep your skin on fleek during this summer.

Use a lighter moisturizer

We wear lighter clothes when it gets warm out, so naturally, we should be doing the same for our skin. One of our favorite recommendations is the bareMinerals Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion ($31.99), it replenishes combination to normal skin types with oil-free hydration to leave it feeling incredibly soft and ultra-smooth.

Don’t forget the sunscreen, please don’t!

We all know sun exposure and sunburns increase in the summer months. We also know that the sun can be the worst enemy of our skin. Sunscreen application (and re-application) shouldn’t just be relegated to the pool or beach areas. Wear sunscreen daily – even if you’re just driving or riding in the car. Try La Roche Posay Anthelios 50 Face Mineral Sunscreen Fluid ($23.39), it is recommended for sensitive skin and atopic skin and it will give you a beautiful matte finish!

Keep it clean

Washing your face is probably something that you’re already doing on a regular basis, but clean skin during the long summer months is extremely important. During the summer heat, skin gets oilier and becomes more exposed to the elements, especially the sun. Having some Dermalogica PreCleanse Wipes ($9.99) with you all the time will be very helpful to keep your skin clean throughout the day. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate at least twice a week; the SkinCeuticals Micro-Exfoliating Scrub ($27.99) can be the perfect because unlike rougher scrubs, this one won’t damages the skin or cause surface lacerations.

Try Clay Masks

Sweat and just more oil production, in general, tends to clog pores and make our skin feel dirty. We all know that this season is the prime time for breakouts, so try using clay masks to help absorb excess oil, deep clean your pores and prevent breakouts. John Masters Organics Moroccan Clay Purifying Mask 2 ($22.89) encourages collagen production and increased cellular turnover while natural antioxidants neutralize free radical damage.  It’s the perfect product for the summer!

How To Keep Your Makeup Melt-Free

We all know the routine. It’s 90+ degrees outside, you’re wearing your favorite summer dress, and your makeup is on point. An hour later, you glance in the mirror and you’re sweating bullets. This morning’s makeup? A memory. Take comfort in these melt-free makeup tips and products that will make your summer beauty routine blissfully carefree.

Start with Primer

Your makeup isn’t set without a layer of primer to lock it down. Opt for an oil-free formula, such as Jane Iredale Smooth Affair for Oily Skin Facial Primer and Brightener ($33.99). It nixes shine while producing a smoother canvas to set your foundation. Bonus: It also reduces the appearances of stubborn fine lines and wrinkles.

Choose Cream Concealer

Light, liquid concealers aren’t formulated to stand up to punishing heat. A dense cream tapped onto skin works best. We love Glo Minerals Camouflage Oil-Free Concealer ($20.99), a potent formula that effectively diminishes everything from under-eye circles to acne scars.

Try Silky Foundation

Silky formulas are ideal because the silicone content creates a film-like layer between your skin and all that destructive humidity and prevents makeup from sliding off. bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($24.99) is available in plenty of colors, enriched with essential sun protection, and can be built up for greater coverage.

Eye a Cream

Packing on the powder eye shadows is just counterintuitive in the face of sweltering heat. At the first sign of sweat, it will come right off! Jane Iredale Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow ($11.99) doesn’t budge—in fact, this creaseless formula is perfect to wear on the hottest days of the year. Wear it on its own for a pop of shimmery color that looks stunning in the sunshine!

Waterproof Your Lashes

There’s no reason to give up the mascara come summer. Coat them in bareMinerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara ($16.99) to give them some instant oomph! The formula is designed to create dramatic, voluminous lashes with intense lift while staying put all day long.

Punctuate Your Pout

Slick glosses and shiny lipsticks won’t last even the coolest of days, but a long-wear matte formula works wonders on hot days. Our pick is Glo Minerals Suede Matte Crayon ($11.99), a non-drying formula loaded with nourishing mango oil and shea butter.

5 Ways to look Younger in less than 5 minutes

We all do what we can to make sure we don’t look older. Night creams, wrinkle-reducing serums, and under-eye creams aren’t the only ways to blur the lines of aging. For those of you who might have missed the anti-aging memo, check out this makeup tips that can make you look younger in less than 5 minutes!

Illuminate your faceHighlighter not only gives you that nice glow, it can be used strategically to lift and contour the face, making it look more youthful! Try a little highlighter like the Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil ($11.99) on the inner and outer corners of the eyes and along the brow bone to brighten up the eye area. You can also use the Glo Minerals ($12.99) highlighter to lift the cheeks. This will draw your cheeks upward.

 

Warm It Up!

Nude lipstick and matte bronzer look lifeless on skin that’s dull. Instead, a neutral rose color applied to the lips like the Tigi Cosmetics Decadent Lipstick “Bliss DL” ($12.99) really brightens it up. For the cheeks, try the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush – Plumberry ($15.99) this mineral based sleek blush formulated with mica and jojoba oil to deliver a smooth application and cheeky glow

 

Open those eyes!

As your skin loses elasticity, your eyelids begin to droop. To fake lifted eyes, go for a good mascara. This product is one of the easiest things you can apply to make your eyes look bigger—and therefore younger. We couldn’t think of a better option to add that volume to your eyes better than the bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – Intense Black ($17.99)

 

Go for a Liquid- Base Foundation

There is a time and a place for matte skin. However, powders can make your skin look dull and give you a cakey finish that accentuates lines and wrinkles. Go for a liquid-based foundation with a dewy finish, something like or similar to Youngblood Liquid Foundation ($26.99). The moisture and illuminating properties will minimize those pesky lines and make your skin look fresh and youthful. Plus, it is recommended to go for a yellowish foundation. Yellow warms up the skin, and the warmer your skin looks, the younger it looks!

 

Fill in your Brows

Because your brows thin out and droop at the ends as you get older, fill them out to look way younger! Lift your brows by applying a powder or brow pencil with a brush-through spoolie along the top line of the tail of your brows. Then, fill in any sparse areas lightly and brush through for a soft but defined look. We recommend the Glo Minerals Precision Brow Pencil ($12.99) since it works to fill in, sculpt, and shape your brows just how you like them.

 

How to Have the Best Hair During Steamy Weather

Baby, it’s hot outside. While we can’t help but have a full-fledged love affair with rising temperatures and sunny skies, we also can’t stop thinking about the little side effects that conveniently come with being a warm-weather aficionado. Unfortunately, the more time you spend outside, the more likely it is that your hair will soak up the humidity, resulting in a frizzy, fuzzy mess. How best to cope? We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite products that are guaranteed to tame your hair throughout spring and summer.

Cleanse with…

Exposure to sunlight, chlorine, and salt water can do a number on your hair. A deeply hydrating cleanser, such as Joico Moisture Recovery Shampoo ($13.99), drenches hair with nourishing and smoothing ingredients to restore strength and moisture. It’s just as important to use a product that effectively removes product and mineral buildup, like Bio Ionic Agave Clarifying Shampoo ($25). Using it gives your hair a fresh start by cleansing your scalp and strands and preparing it for anything from styling treatments to salt water.

 

Condition with…

 Warm weather calls for a conditioner that blocks out humidity while protecting parched strands from further damage. Rusk Deep Shine Smooth Keratin Care Smoothing Conditioner ($11.99) leaves your hair soft, shiny, and more capable of standing up to even the harshest elements. That’s important if you plan to spend lots of time at the beach or the pool! Once or twice a week, treat your hair to Agadir Argan Oil Moisture Masque ($18.99). It’s a heavy-duty treatment enriched with a strengthening combination of argan oil, vitamin E, keratin protein, and antioxidants.

Control with…

Frizz is one of warm weather’s main hair woes. A product like John Masters Organics Dry Hair Nourishment & Defrizzer ($18.99) is ideal. It’s made with 100 percent organic plant and essential oils, including moisturizing jojoba, healing lavender, and shine-boosting rosemary, all of which work together to smooth out stubborn frizz. You can also use it to prevent split ends. If you’re headed out and need to maintain that sexy updo, spritz on some Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray ($16.99) to lock in your style and prevent coarseness and frizz.

 

Protect with…

 One of the best things you can do for your locks when it’s hot outside is simply to protect it. TIGI Bed Head Beach Bound Protection Spray ($12.99) works wonders if you plan to get soaked in salt water. It’s made with sunflower seed oil and grapefruit extract to protect your hair from heat (both sun and styling), and even contains a UV protectant to combat those harsh and harmful rays. Use it throughout the season to enjoy stronger, more resilient hair. For everyday use, nothing tops John Masters Organics Sea Mist Sea Salt Spray with Lavender ($15.99). It smells fabulous, soothes the scalp, adds volume, and lends your hair that enviable beach-babe look we all covet.

 

How to make your foundation last longer and look better

Is there any specific order when it comes to applying makeup? Oh yes… Most of the time, we start only with the foundation, and we can get a little frustrated because it doesn’t look as fresh and perfect as we would like. There are some steps we should follow before and after the foundation and some hacks to make it last longer and look even better!

 

Always apply moisturizer before starting your makeup, as it makes the application even. Wait a few minutes after your application before priming. Two of our favorite moisturizers are SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer 2 oz ($35.99) and Jane Iredale BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer ($28.99). Remember that by moisturizing your skin, it will allow your makeup to go on smoother and last longer.

 

Whether you wear a full face of makeup every day or you prefer to keep it simple with BB cream and tinted lip balm, makeup primer is a godsend when trying to combat shine or create a smooth base for foundation. The bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer ($20.99) is a great option because it prepares skin for flawless coverage. Plus, it conceals enlarged pores, uneven texture, and dryness while creating a silky, smooth canvas.

Many people often skip this step because they believe they don’t really need it, and are unsure of how to use it or don’t think it’s worth the investment. However, using a primer underneath your makeup will make everything last longer, whether that’s on your skin or in your cosmetics bag.

 

Sealing your pores is also essential! By taking care of this, you will be able to make your foundation even and it will give you that doll-face effect. In order to seal your pores, you should definitely go with Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion ($31.99) this product will take care of sealing pores and creating almost a blanket over them. This hack is extremely important if you like liquid foundations since they can make your pores more visible.

 

If you think it is time for foundation, not yet! Sunscreen protection is a must that your skin will highly appreciate! I know you’re probably thinking “My makeup already has SPF in it, so that should have you covered, right?” Wrong.

Applying SPF is a step we simply cannot miss to have our face fully covered. The John Masters Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30.99) is a natural sunscreen that will replenish the skin of vitamins and minerals. It is important that you follow this step carefully before foundation, but allow the product to set and really penetrate the skin.

 

With these hacks, you’ll have that perfect canvas to create the makeup look you want!

Skincare 101: Everything You Need to Know

 Choosing the right skincare products can be a tricky thing. Once you’ve settled on a regimen, you have to make sure you’re using your products in the right order, applying them at the right time of day, and treating your concerns effectively. It can be mind boggling simply navigating the skincare aisle at the drugstore! That’s why we’ve broken down the fine art of caring for your skin. Here’s everything you need to know.

 

Q: In what order should I use my skincare products?

It’s no good having a great collection of products if you aren’t applying them in the proper order. The first step is to remove all traces of dirt and debris with an effective cleanser formulated for your skin type. The goal is simply to start with a clean canvas. Make a commitment to exfoliate dry skin two to three times a week with a gentle scrub. Focus on those areas where clogged pores are most prominent, like your cheeks and nose.

Follow with a serum that’s packed with ingredients that target your skin’s unique needs. Formulas enriched with retinol’s and hyaluronic acids are designed to target aging, while nourishing oils lock in moisture for dry skin. Remember to pat your serum on—don’t rub. Next, pat eye cream on gently, taking care not to rub or tug the delicate skin in this area. Work your way from the outer corners of your eyes and down along the orbital bone. Then apply moisturizer. Your final step is sunscreen, which is essential if you’re headed outdoors.

 

Q: Can I use a face oil if I have oily skin? 

It may sound counterintuitive, but face oils are remarkably effective even on oily skin. They key is not to go overboard in your usage, and to stick with nourishing ingredients that help balance your skin. We like Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil 100% Purified Squalene ($23.99) for its gentle, non-comedogenic formula. If you find that most oils feel too heavy, look for a product specifically formulated as lightweight. You might also want to add just a drop to your nighttime moisturizer instead of slicking it onto your skin full throttle. Nighttime is definitely an important qualifier, too: your skin is less oily at night, so it’s best to apply your face oil right before you hit the sack.

 

Q: What’s the difference between a hydrator and a moisturizer?

Thought the terms are often used interchangeably, hydration and moisturization are two different concepts. Hydrators are designed to increase your skin’s water content, while moisturizers lock in moisture to prevent that water content from being lost. This is why it’s advisable to apply moisturizer to slightly damp skin—it’s the water that keeps skin hydrated, while the moisturizer seals that hydration and keeps skin soft and supple. For extra dry skin, we love Skinmedia HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator ($329.89) to really ramp up your skin’s ability to combat fine lines while maintaining a smoother, healthier complexion.

 

Q: How long should I wait before applying sunscreen?

 

You’ve slathered sunscreen all over your face and body about 20 minutes before heading outside. You’re good to go—for now, at least. Pay attention to your sunscreen’s SPF rating. That number indicates how much time you can safely spend in the sun before your skin starts to show signs of damage (like pinkness or redness). As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to reapply sunscreen after two hours. If you’re using a water-resistant formula, note that their efficacy times may differ. So if you’re swimming or surfing, be sure to reapply as often as the packaging instructs. One of our favorite head-to-toe formulas is Avene Mineral Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ for Face and Body ($24.99).

The Must Have Products In Every Gym Bag

It’s a bit of a challenge to haul yourself to the gym before sunrise, but more often than not you get it done. What you do post-workout, though, is just as important as actually getting to the gym and completing your hardcore regimen. That’s because all that exercise has a tendency to do a number on your hair and skin. You don’t necessarily have to shower at the gym, but you should pack your gym bag with a few of these very essential items to take your workout game to the next level.

gym-essentials-2

No matter your hair type, you’ll probably have some sweat lingering on your scalp after your workout. Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($23.99) is a game-changer in the ever-burgeoning world of dry shampoos: it smells amazing, plumps hair up at the roots to provide some much-needed volume, and resists the usual powdery mess that is so typical of most of its counterparts. It contains hydrating argan and macadamia oils, both of which nourish your strands without weighing it down.

Those nightmare stories about breakouts that develop after a workout are no joke. Nip the problem in the bud by cleansing your skin with a powerful product, like Murad Clarifying Wipes ($15.99). They’re formulated to combat blemishes, remove dirt, sweat, and debris, and limit your skin’s excessive oil production. Swipe it over your face and neck after a workout to achieve an instantly fresh complexion.a274d5b420c9639472cd7a27e88fd0f0

To wear before, during, and after: Bliss Fabulips Glossy Balm ($11.99) absolutely nails it with an impressive formula that keeps lips continuously hydrated. It’s made with a hyper-moisturizing blend of shea butter and vitamin E, both of which deliver the goods on contact to leave your lips soft. There’s even a hint of mint to leave your breath smelling fresh. Dry air in the gym can really do a number on your lips in no time, so it’s a good idea to keep something like this on hand.

You don’t need to apply a full face of makeup after that fabulous workout session. Chances are you’re already sporting some pretty rosy cheeks, but if you want to boost your complexion while you’re running an after-gym errand, apply some Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($16.99) onto your cheekbones and call it a day. This is all you need to achieve that natural glow that mimics your skin’s innate beauty, and the twist-and-go formula is perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

Who actually wants to stow all of this stuff in an oversized gym bag and rummage around for it? What you need is a cute case to tote it in style, like this TIGI Cosmetics Bag ($1.99). An unbelievable deal, it’s sized just right for all of your essentials, and you can stick a few extras in there, too—think travel deodorant, hair ties, and a comb. P.S. Starting this week if you spend over $175 on SkinMedica Products you can receive a gift bag with four travel size SkinMedica products valued at over $105, that would be great additions to your gym bag.

This product does it all, and it’s earned all of the accolades for a good reason

Going Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Did you know that one in eight women in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer? That’s according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF), which also reports that it’s the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women—and the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women.bca-1

Sobering statistics like these are enough to stop any woman in her tracks. That’s why it’s so important that we all do our part to help during Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October. By raising awareness, instilling hope and courage, and being supportive of affected loved ones, you’re doing a world of good.

 

eltamd_20lotion-1341764-3Here, we’ve chosen a few of our favorite products straight from TheBeautyPlace.com—products that we hope will brighten spirits, raise awareness, and help the unique needs of those who undergo cancer treatments.

Dry skin is a common side effect of chemotherapy. The treatment can also worsen existing dry skin, and may also cause itchiness. A rich moisturizer designed to improve the skin’s moisture barrier and impart continuous hydration is key. We love the soothing texture of Elta MD Lotion ($14.29), because it helps strengthen skin while delivering continuous moisture for hours. Best of all, it can be used safely from head to toe (yes, even on your face).

 

avene-cold-cream-balmLips can also dry out considerably as a result of cancer treatment. A rich, highly moisturizing product like Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream ($12.99) infuses lips with deeply hydrating thermal spring water. It also feels incredibly luxurious and leaves lips pillow soft—almost suede-like, in fact. A little bit goes a long way, and because it’s hypoallergenic it’s safe even for those with sensitive skin.

 

Some cancer patients report that their skin feels remarkably smoother after using Egyptian Magic ($26.99) to soothe especially dry, cracked areas of the skin. It contains olive oil, honey, royal jelly, bee pollen, and beeswax, among other nourishing ingredients. The formula is designed to attack that dryness at its root, coating skin in deep moisture as it works overtime to minimize dryness and scaling. It can even be used on the hair, cuticles, after shaving, and just about anywhere else on the body.

Hair loss is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy. Some other types of cancer treatments may cause the hair to thin. In that case, or in the event of partial hair loss, Toppik Colored Hair Thickener ($19.75) may be a viable solution. This spray product conceals thinning spots, touches up roots, and creates an illusion of fuller, richer hair. It’s available in several colors and is very easy and quick to use.

Cancer treatments can have an emotional impact on women. The side effects can be alarming, and the physical changes that affect the body, from hair loss to excessive dryness, can be disturbing. Remind her that she’s beautiful through it all and surprise her with a day-brightening beauty product, such as Tigi Cosmetics Brilliance Glow Blush ($15.99). It illuminates the complexion and can even be used as eye shadow in a pinch.

At TheBeautyPlace.com, our goal is simple: to do our own small part to help this very important cause. We’re hosting our Pink Sale from Saturday, Oct. 1 through Friday, Oct.7 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We hope it serves a strong reminder that early detection is the key.
