Prepare Your Winter Survival Kit

Winter means humidity won’t kill our sleek styles but it also means hotter showers that can dry our skin and leave us in need of a skin-quencher.

No worries, we’ve assembled the best products that you can use this winter to target dry skin and reduce hair static.

Hands

We can’t stress enough how crucial it is to moisturize your hands. Crucial to our everyday lives, they are always exposed to being damaged and dry whether it be at work with the constant typing and paperwork, overusing hand sanitizer, and exposure to heat and cold. An intense conditioning treatment like the Dermalogica Hand & Nail Treatment is a fast-absorbing treatment that not only hydrates hands, but also maintains nails. Minimize nail peeling and protect skin from environmental damage.

HAND TREATMENT

Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Hand & Nail Treatment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lips

Don’t leave forget about your pout either.During those windy, cold days, lips can experience chapping and dryness. Coat on lip balm to keep the delicate lip skin smooth and hydrated during the arctic chill. This Bombshell Lip Balm leaves lips with a natural, rosy glow while protecting and healing.

LIP BALM

Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die for Pink Lip Balm

 

 

 

 

 

 

Face

Winter’s roughness can make our complexion dull. Regain skin’s radiance with an at-home treatment mask. Dr Brandt’s Oxygen Facial helps re-energize stressed skin. With the wind and cold, that’s reason enough to use it. Use it once a week to help skin absorb oxygen better and to release any trapped toxins.

FACIAL MASK

Dr Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At night is when your body repairs itself. Take advantage of night-time moisturizers to help replenish skin’s lost moisture throughout the day. This nourishing lotion helps promote healthy cell turnover and increases skin’s elasticity.

NIGHT CREAM

Murad Age Reform Perfecting Night Cream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hair

It’s the season for hats and scarves and beanies which also means static in our hair. Combat frizziness with healing oil treatments. Not only will it help hair look luscious and healthy, but it will help keep hair static free. Macadamia’s oil treatment makes hair smooth and silky and designed for dry hair. Use it on any hair style during the winter months to help rejuvenate hair.

CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: AMA’s 2015 – Selena Gomez

Did anyone else get a vampy feel from Selena Gomez at the AMA’s?

We did!

She looked amazing on the red carpet with a sunset, smoky eye to complement her red dress.

Her copper, red infused eye makeup paired with hazel contacts drew us in and left us in awe.

#GETTHELOOK

Step 1 Prime eyelids. Using a brightening primer like this one will help add dimension to the eye.

Step 2 Light cream color eye shadow set the crease and brow bone area. We like Jane Iredale’s Oyster.

Step 3 Blend into your crease a copper eye shadow. Jane Iredale’s Triple Eyeshadow – Triple Cognac has shades that can be used. Be sure to focus on the outer area and winging it outward.

Step 4 Blend the edges with a clean brush.

Step 5 Use a red shadow to build definition on top of the copper hue. We like the darker shade in TIGI Cosmetics – Flawless.

Step 6 On the lid, layer another red shade. You can play with the types of reds you would like to use. In Selena’s look, there are many red-wine colors used. Youngblood in Bordeaux can be used.

Step 7 Make sure all the shadows are blended. Use the same shadow as in Step 6 to line the lower lash line. Line the inside of the lower lash line with a burgundy eyeliner or black if preferred.

Step 8 Use a volumizing mascara and voila!

Tap Water and Skin Don’t Go Well Together

Basic-Skin-CareWith everything saying that H2O is the healthiest natural element to put into our bodies, imagine our surprise when we heard it that tap water can actually be bad on your body.

We are talking skin care. Studies have shown that the high mineral content in tap water can actually be too harsh for sensitive skin types and over-sensitized skin.

Actually, all skin types, regardless of sensitivity, would benefit from removing tap water from their daily skin care routine.

Though we don’t have an alternative solution for body and hair – using water bottles are out of the question, we care about the environment – you can make changes in your facial skin care routine to avoid using tap water.

The Details

Tap water is also known as hard water in certain areas. Water with high mineral content like higher amounts of magnesium, calcium, and iron tend to irritate skin by being too abrasive and drying.

Have you ever noticed the residue left around faucets before you scrub it clean? Now imagine those same deposits on your face.

The Solution

It’s been said before, but we will say it again – micellar water.

With the French leading the “say no to tap water” movement, the trend has reached the United States. Using micellar water does not require rinsing. Just apply to a cotton ball or or cotton pad and wipe. It is gentle for all types of skin and helps remove stubborn makeup as well.

Those that prefer milk cleansers can just wipe it off with toner and follow with a spritz of thermal water. (Make sure to pat the water into your skin or pat a tissue to absorb the excess water to prevent dehydration.)

If removing tap water from your skin care routine, you will need to definitely add exfoliating as a step to help remove any impurities that may stay clogged in your pores. Do a chemical peel or a facial as needed to help remove dead skin buildup – and anything else that’s trapped.

Another suggestion – filter your water at home. This may help to remove the harsher minerals from disrupting your skin’s pH balance.

Find a Balance

Cleansing with water is still one of the best ways to thoroughly cleanse skin gently and to remove oil. If you do continue with tap water, add in a thermal water spray into your routine or even spritz on micellar water to help hydrate skin.

Will you continue to use tap water or will you remove it completely? #WeWantToKnow

CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: Lorde’s Beauty Transformation

Lorde Lorde--2015-CFDA-Vogue-Fashion-Fund-Awards--07-662x994

Beauty transformations are just that – a thing of beauty. We love seeing celebrities evolve in their style – whether it be hair or makeup or attire.

Known for her signature style of long curls and dark lips, Lorde surprised everyone on the red carpet for CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.

We love the 18-year-old’s big curls, and she rocks it so well, but it’s great to see her experiment with new looks.

The “Royals” singer looked uber-sophisticated. Not only was her hair sleeker, but she had cut her long locks! A glossy hairstyle matched with demure makeup, the young star nailed the red carpet.

So how do you get this sleek do when you have voluminous curls?

  1. Begin with a treatment mask. Curls mask any hair damage really well so a hair mask will help get your hair in better shape. We suggest TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Recovery Mask to give your locks moisture and help repair any damage.
  2. Towel dry hair gently. Follow with a heat protectant to shield hair from damage.
  3. Section off hair and blow dry with a round brush. We love Bio Ionic’s newest hair dryer!
  4. After blow drying comes flat ironing. If your hair soaks up product quickly, we suggest adding another does of heat protection or using another hair oil. Joico’s Protect and Shine Serum can be used during ironing and as a final step to leave it sleek and shiny.

What are your thoughts on Lorde’s new look? #WeWantToKnow!
