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!

4 Products to Soothe Sensitive Skin

Coping with sensitive skin is, well, a sensitive issue. There’s lots of trial and error involved, and it can often result in unnecessary dollars spent, tons of product wasted, and endless frustration. Anyone who regularly wages war with ruddy skin, irritation, and itchiness knows this all too well.

In the interest of alleviating your stress (which, by the way, can make those sensitive skin woes even worse) and easing your skin’s discomfort, we’ve rounded up four of the most effective products for sensitive skin. The next time your cheeks, nose, and forehead decide to flare up, you’ll have just the thing in your beauty arsenal to put an end to the misery.

Moisturize Gently

A healing moisturizer is the key to soothing inflamed skin that doesn’t respond to traditional products. Pevonia Soothing Sensitive Skin Cream ($48.79) is formulated specifically to treat redness resulting from irritation and rashes. Its cocktail of aloe and propolis helps relax oversensitive patches and decongestion. Your skin does its best work overnight, so apply it liberally before bed and enjoy softer, more comfortable skin by morning.

 

Treat Specifically

Sometimes it’s just a few select areas that need a little TLC. Keep a tube of Avene Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate ($29.99) in your medicine cabinet for those moments when your skin really freaks out and needs immediate treatment. Free of parabens and fragrances, it diminishes ruddiness and calms the symptoms of rosacea. It’s also hypoallergenic, so you can feel safe using it when your skin needs some serious help.

 

Cleanse Softly

Avoid cleansers that strip your skin and opt for a milder product, like bareMinerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam ($19.99). Infused with gentle elderflower and rosemary extracts, it drenches skin with moisture will leaving it soft and refreshed. A little bit goes a long way—that’s important to remember when your skin is sensitive. Avoid overusing products or doing too much to your skin in general.

Cover Up

Sometimes you have no option but to conceal sensitive skin before you head out the door. It’s a good idea to keep a potent product like Dermablend Cover Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($26.99) on hand for such emergencies. Available in a whopping 21 shades (there is truly one for every skin tone!), it provides instant full coverage on even the most difficult spots. Long-lasting coverage means you’ll never have to worry about it smudging or budging, and essential sunscreen protects your skin from those harmful ultraviolet rays.

The Best Sunscreens for Every Situation

The importance of wearing sunscreen has been hammered into us for as long as we can remember. Most would say it’s beauty rule number one—the one rule you absolutely should not break. That’s why it’s so important to choose one that you can use daily before you head outdoors.

That said, not all sunscreens are alike. Some are more suited for the body, and others are designed exclusively for the face. Here are some of the best sunscreens available on TheBeautyPlace.com for every warm-weather situation you may encounter.

For Your Makeup

Some foundations are infused with sun protection, but they don’t provide sufficient coverage against harmful ultraviolet rays. You would need to pile on the foundation in order to reap the benefits, which is why it’s a good idea to wear a separate sunscreen underneath your foundation. Try broad-spectrum John Masters Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30.99), a lightweight formula enriched with hydrating and nourishing green tea and shea butter.

For the Beach

It’s no secret that some sunscreens literally stink. The key to choosing a great sunscreen for the beach is to find a formula that works overtime to protect you from damaging UV rays while also adding a nice tropical fragrance to the mix. COOLA Classic Sport SPF 50 ($26.99) ticks every box on the list—it contains an anti-inflammatory dose of organic arnica extract, hydrating oils of omegas 3 and 6, plus a cocktail of nourishing vitamins. All that, plus a juicy mango scent, makes it the ultimate beachwear option.

For Outdoor Fitness

 If you’re an outdoor fitness maven, you’ve probably lost count of the number of sunscreens you’ve tried. There’s got to be at least one that won’t streak away while you’re out there getting fit, right? It’s safe to say you need a tube of La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Body Milk Sunscreen ($28.99). In addition to high-performance sun protection, it’s water-resistant for better wear in the sweltering heat. It also contains moisturizers and antioxidants to protect your skin from dryness and free radicals.

For Sensitive Skin

 If you can barely use fragrances without breaking out into hives, you may find it difficult to find a sunscreen that really suits your sensitive skin. To the rescue comes Murad Redness Therapy Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15 ($28.89). It’s formulated to improve the appearance of ruddy, inflamed skin while drenching it with moisture and protecting it from dangerous UV rays. It also has a hint of tint to correct discoloration, and may even help minimize flakiness that could result from summer dryness.

For Combating Aging

Fine lines and wrinkles are no match for a potent sunscreen with built-in anti-aging ingredients. Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 ($51.99) is essentially the superhero of the skin care world. It combats even stubborn lines while preventing the formation of new ones, all while protecting skin from sunlight. You’ll notice an improvement in your skin’s texture and elasticity over time, both of which are key in reducing the visible signs of aging. 

For Daily Use 

Who wants to wear a face full of makeup when it’s hot outside? Treat yourself to a two-in-one product that actually works: Peter Thomas Roth Radiant Instant Mineral Brush-On Bronzer Sunscreen SPF 30 ($19.99). Tucked inside this discreet bottle is a powder that leaves your skin beautifully bronzed. That healthy glow, though, comes second to the product’s potent, broad-spectrum sunscreen. A little color and a ton of sun protection is all you need to get through the day, and this delivers perfectly.

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).

Everything You Need to Combat Winter Beauty Woes

Winter has a nasty habit of wreaking havoc on the skin and the hair. Harsh, dry air, combined with low levels of humidity creates the perfect storm. Suddenly your hair is static, your skin feels like sandpaper, and your hands are coarse. Don’t let the season get away with it! Here are five essential products from TheBeautyPlace.com that are destined to improve how you feel from head to toe.

Dry strands require extreme moisture. Give your hair the TLC it deserves with TIGI Bed Head Urban Anti+dotes Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner ($28.99). The products are formulated with hyper-hydrating ingredients that infuse locks with deep hydration. After just one wash, you’ll notice a difference. For hair that feels coarse and looks lackluster, supplement your regimen with TIGI Bed Head Urban Anti+dotes Recovery Treatment Mask ($14.89) at least once a week. It’s ideal for repairing damage, and all products are safe to use on color-treated hair.

 

It’s not uncommon for skin to become flaky and irritated during winter. Combat this by overhauling your skincare lineup for the season. PCA Skin Dry Skin Relief Bar ($22.99) is a good starting point: it’s a mild cleanser that works best when it’s left on the skin for a couple of minutes. During this time, it sloughs off those unsightly flakes, softens dry spots, and leaves behind a smooth finish. Unlike other cleansers, it won’t strip your skin.

 

You probably have already noticed that your lightweight lotion isn’t quite doing the trick for your face during winter. Switch to a thicker emollient, like Avene Hydrance Optimale Rich Hydrating Cream ($25.99). Mild and gentle, it’s infused with shea butter and is suitable to use on even the most sensitive skin types. For best results, apply when skin is slightly damp to lock in moisture.

 

Ordinary hand creams just won’t do during winter, either. The best choice is a formula that contains ultra-moisturizing ingredients. Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream ($12.99) fits the bill with its rich consistency and deeply hydrating oils of macadamia and grapeseed. It sinks in quickly, so skin doesn’t feel tacky or greasy, and its effects linger even after you wash your hands.

 

Winter can also increase your skin’s sensitivity. Look for unscented moisturizers loaded with nourishing ingredients, such as John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion ($14.99). With sea kelp, coconut oil, milk thistle, and white tea extract, it’s as much a treatment for parched skin as it is a basic hydrator. It absorbs quickly, and can even be used on the face in a pinch thanks to its non-greasy finish.

We are also having a winter beauty recovery sale, just is time to get everything you need to combat your beauty woes. Sale ends on 2/3/2017 11:59 PM EST.

 

The Do’s & Don’ts Of Self Tanning

Get ready to glow! With the winter season here, we’re not as exposed to the sun as we wish and our tan lines are most likely to be invisible. But don’t worry, there’s still hope that we can have our summer sun kissed skin even when the temperatures are going down. Do we even have to mention that tanning beds and lying out, with out sunscreen are not viable options? By now, you should know to practice safe sun and the only safe way to get a tan is to fake it. Faking it is far easier than you think, and rather inexpensive. However, there are some things to keep in my mind that you should and you shouldn’t do when doing self-tanning:

self-tanner_1

Do’s:

  1. Exfoliate your skin before: in order to get better results with self-tanning, your skin needs to be on great conditions. One way to prepare your skin is to exfoliate it at least 8 hours before. The Avene Akerat  ($25.99) is a smoothing, exfoliating cream for body. Ideal for dry to very dry skin types, it minimizes rough and hardened skin and improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
  1. Use an applicator: knowing how to get the perfect tan can take some time. If you’re pulling and rubbing at the skin when applying your self-tan you are likely causing streaks. That’s why we recommend a tan applicator, a mitt or a self-tanning product for beginners such as Tantowel Endless Tan Classic Kit ($16.99) This is a combination of the TanTowel Classic self-tanning towelettes and the clear liquid Tanning Mist. You won’t believe how easy is to apply it and get the tan everyone is dying to have!
  1. Moisturize to maintain your sexy tan longer! It is recommended to apply a good body lotion at least once a day. Not only to maintain a beautiful tan, but also to hydrate your skin. John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion ($14.99) is ideal for all skin types and perfect to use every day.

c681cc599bbe810d93c66fef7bd227ed

Don’ts:

1.Don’t use anything with oil before self-tanning — no moisturizing products. It will get in the way of your tan. Self-tan needs to get right down to your skin without something blocking it.

2.Don’t layer It on! Your skin can only absorb a certain amount of product. Depending on how you apply. What we recommend is two decent coats or a few light layers is always sufficient. One of our favorite ones are Bliss FatGirlSlim Hide and Glow Sleek – Fair to Medium ($33.99) this tinted body firming spray contains Amazonian maracuja oil and caffeine to firm and reduce puffiness. It gives you that luminous glow and you won’t have to apply hundred on layers to get the tan you want.

3. Don’t shave immediately before applying. Shaving exfoliates the skin, leaving it supple and ready for bronzing, so it should be done before self-tanner is applied, just not right before since shaving can     open pores and create cuts. Prevent irritations and take your precautions.

Don’t forget to take into consideration these previous advices and achieve your desired golden glow without the dangerous effects of the sun!

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.

Properly remove your entire make up: This is the first step and one of the most important to maintain a healthy skin and of course, we couldn’t exclude it from our spa day! The skin on our face is extremely sensitive, which is why we must remove our makeup with products that also eliminate all impurities and don’t mistreat our skin. If you’re looking for the right product, Jane Iredale’s Magic Mitt ($13.99) is an excellent choice; it is the kind of make-up remover that doesn’t require the use of any other additional products. With the Magic Mitt, we’ll only need to rub the cloth with kindness on our face and Voila! Magic Mitt not only cleans our skin, but also makes a subtle exfoliation.

Wash your face: After removing all of our make-up, it is essential to use a good cleanser to make our face look and feel 100% clean. However, we must select a product that will ensure it will remove any makeup residue and that is appropriate for our skin type. By applying the SkinMedica Facial Cleanser ($23.99) in our face, we’ll achieve a much more moisturized, smoother and cleaner skin. This soap is recommended for any type of complexion. In addition, its formula contains green tea that gives an air of freshness to our skin.

Now, it is time for a facemask! No spa day is complete without masks since we love the fact that right after applying them, we can see immediate positive results on our skin face. For a rejuvenating and revitalizing effect on our skin, we recommend the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle 24k Gold Sheet Mask Mask ($49.59). This mask has become very famous because of the fact that in only 15 minutes, it gives a more youthful appearance to our face. Moreover, it is specially designed to conceal lines of expression and bring shine and softness to the skin.  If you want another option, the Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask ($47.99) offers a different kind of results since it focuses on helping our skin to absorb the oxygen better, purifies the face by eliminating toxins and it protects you from those agents that can contaminate your skin.

Apply some toner: Many people think that applying toner to our face is not very important, However, it turns our that applying toner is one of the most important steps in order to get a healthy skin. Toners revitalize and rejuvenate our faces while it closes the pores, restores the pH, moisturizes and refreshes the skin. Don’t worry if you ever though toner wasn’t important, that’s why we want to recommend the Bliss Steep Clean Pore Mattifying Toner Pads ($27.99) for this important step on our home spa day. These easy-to-use pads purify the skin, remove dead skin cells and reduce pore size thanks to the combination of enzymes and acids contained on its formula. They are recommended for any type of complexion!
