Five Easy Ways to Retouch Your Makeup

Four hours into work, you head to the bathroom. As you look at yourself in the mirror, you’re baffled at how faded your makeup looks already. That “waterproof” eyeliner miraculously smudged and your forehead looks like an oil slick. Sounds familiar? Don’t let all that time and effort you put into your makeup in the morning go to waste. By following these few tips, you’ll save your makeup—and trick people into thinking you just applied it even though you’ve had it on for a solid 10 hours.

1. Take off that first layer of oil

Before even touching makeup, the most important thing to do is to remove excess oil on top of the skin. If you don’t and try to just powder your face, your makeup will actually mix in with the oil, creating a cakey mess. Using blotting sheets like Glo Minerals Blotting Papers ($7.99) will instantly absorb sebum without causing your foundation to look blotchy. Focus primarily on the T-zone, pressing gently to get rid of any oil.

2. Lose the remaining shine

Instead of turning to powder to mattify, use liquid! Sounds counterproductive, but there’s a new innovative liquid product that works so much better at mattifying your skin: Murad MatteEffect Blotting Perfector ($36.99). This on-the-go compact was developed by a dermatologist and contains a unique translucent formula that effectively gets rid of the shine while visibly minimizing pores. Feel secure knowing that for up to eight hours you’ll be shine-free wherever you go!

3. Spritz hydration spray on top

Now that you got rid of the bad shine, time for the good kind of shine. Get a youthful glow by spraying Jane Iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray ($27.99) all over your face. Not only does the organic spray control oil production, but also it hydrates and conditions the skin. The lemongrass awakens your senses in the process, helping you relax and decompress from the day. Getting your skin to look like it’s radiating from within has never been easier.

4. Clean up any makeup smudges

As the day goes on, your makeup naturally tends to smear a little, even if all you do is sit at a computer. Keeping BioSwiss Paper Stick Cotton Swabs ($2.99) on hand will help you clean up any imperfections without disrupting the rest of your makeup. Just grab a swab and gently wipe away any lipstick or eyeliner smudges. The inner corner of your eyes can also collect gunk so check for that, too.

 

5. Reapply makeup and soften lines

The last step to reviving your makeup look is to touch up any makeup that might have faded away. Some of the most common areas include the lips, eyes, and any blemishes that may have popped up from underneath your concealer. With the BeautyBlender Micro.Mini ($15.99), you can quickly patch up of any of those spots. Simply apply a tiny dot of concealer on the area, pat it in with a clean finger, and smooth with a dampened Micro.Mini. For a finishing touch, use the sponge to blot any harsh lines in your makeup like your smile lines.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

Why You Need Some Acid in Your Life

Your skin care routine may be on point, but you can elevate it even more by adding acid to the mix. Although you might worry about the possibility of irritation, the newest breed of acid-based skin products are designed to treat your skin without causing discomfort. Here’s what you need to know—and what to try.

It Combats Aging

 If your goal is to stave off the early signs of aging, it’s important to get a head start with a product that is specifically designed to target those fine lines and wrinkles. Look for something injected with hyaluronic acid, a potent ingredient that rebalances your body’s collagen levels as those naturally decline with age. The acid helps boost your ability to synthesize collagen and moisturizes your skin at the same time. It’s a double whammy that spells serious success for tired looking, aging skin.

Karin Herzog E&R Anti-Aging Corrector Serum ($89.99) not only looks gorgeous in its gold-encased bottle, but also provides your skin with a hyper-concentrated infusion of hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and vitamin B3. A touch of chamomile soothes while the concoction penetrates deeply to reveal smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

It Brightens Skin

A sallow complexion is easy to revive with some makeup, but if you want to get to the root of the matter you need to focus on your skin care products. Glycolic acid is a natural exfoliating agent that sloughs away dead skin cells on the surface layer of your skin. The result is fresh, healthy, vibrant skin that also appears to youthfully glow, thanks to the acid’s ability to stimulate the production of both collagen and elastin.

And since you likely hydrate your skin every day anyway, it’s worth switching to Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Glow Moisture ($42), a deeply moisturizing lotion that contains both glycolic and lactic acids. The combination works to improve the cell renewal process while smoothing rough spots. It also contains vitamin D and microencapsulated DHA, which lend your skin a golden glow over time.

It Heals Damage

Glycolic acid does more than just exfoliate—it also has the potential to heal skin abnormalities without causing irritation. The key is in its size. Glycolic is the smallest possible type of hydroxy acid, which means it’s easy to add to virtually all types of skin care formulations. As it penetrates the skin’s outermost layer, it works to eliminate issues such as dryness, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.

If you’re concerned about the prevalence of these issues, a product like Glo Therapeutics 10% Glycolic Cleanser ($40.99) works wonders. In addition to the acid, it also has anti-inflammatory aloe vera, soothing Canadian willowherb extract, and green tea leaf extract, a potent antioxidant that combats the harmful effects of free radicals

Beauty Sleep 101: Products to Help You Snooze Better

New year, new you! If you’ve vowed to get more sleep this year, you aren’t alone—and you probably need all the help that you can get, too. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we believe that improving sleep is one of the best enhancements you can make to your beauty routine. You’ll feel better, your skin will look better, and you’ll be far more motivated to handle everything life throws your way. Here are some tips for getting the beauty sleep of your life—plus a few of our favorite products to help you get there.

First things first: the technology has got to go. While they’re some of our world’s greatest advancements, those tables and smartphones just don’t belong in bed with you. Our suggestion? Pick up an actual book and make a commitment to read a chapter or two each night. It will give you something to anticipate, and it’s much more likely to lull you off into dreamland. Studies show, in fact, that looking at a bright screen for longer than an hour can make you more alert, precisely at a time when you should be ready to wind down for the day.

Soothe your senses by massaging an aromatic moisturizer into your skin. Gently manipulating your skin is an easy way to relax your mind and body, while a soft scent calms your nerves. Try John Masters Organics Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Milk ($16.99)—the light vanilla is warm, while the citrus notes add some radiance to the milky notes.

Your skin does the majority of its work overnight, so if another resolution is to achieve a clearer complexion you may want to invest in a nourishing treatment like Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($40.99). It’s infused with smoothing collagen, brightening vitamin C, and illuminating camu berries, all of which work together to reveal more brilliant skin by morning.

Lighting a candle while you sleep isn’t a good idea, but a NEST Fragrances Reed Diffuser ($41.99) will fill your bedroom with a potent fragrance that will easily relax frayed nerves and soothe your senses. The Vanilla Orchid and Almond scent is a particularly good choice for overnight, when warm nutty notes combine with coconut milk, vanilla, and amber to help you get a great night’s sleep.

Sometimes it’s hard to sleep no matter what you do. In many cases, the best solution is to create a blackout so that your eyes don’t have to deal with any niggling light. The London Bath & Beauty Printed Sleep Mask ($3.99) is a cute and economical solution that slips on easily. It’s made from soft satin and feels perfect against the skin.

The Art of Gorgeous Hands

Winter equates to dry skin for many of us, which means it’s more important than ever to take care of those cracked knuckles before the problem becomes worse. Here’s how to make sure your hands stay gorgeous and soft even in single-digit temps.

First things first…you need to moisturize. It’s fairly easy to get into this habit as temperatures drop because your hands severely suffer if you don’t. Dry air has a tendency to really wreak havoc on the skin, and if left alone your hands will start to feel dehydrated and itchy. They may even start to crack or peel. Avoid that whole scenario by investing in a high-quality product like Avene Cold Cream Concentrated Hand Cream ($10.99), a rich moisturizer that sinks right in without leaving skin greasy or oily. It works continuously even after you wash your hands, and is designed to stand up to even the most brutally cold weather. Now that’s a superstar.

In addition to your hands, you might notice that your fingernails tend to dry out in the cold, too. Lack of moisture in the air aggravates the problem if your nails are already brittle, but even people with normally smooth nails may notice a change if they don’t show them some TLC during winter. Buffing Tweezerman’s Dual Nail Brush ($6.89) over nails helps slough away those dry bits and reveals cleaner, smoother nails. And thanks to the ergonomic handle and oval shape, it’s easy to use and never gets tiresome.

Sometimes rough skin needs a little extra attention. A nourishing body scrub infused with natural sugars is a great way to slough away dead skin and reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. We love John Masters Organics Raspberry and Orange Body Scrub ($16.99), which gently eliminates dry spots while infusing skin with hydrating and healing oils that both brighten the skin (a must when your hands start to look a little dull in the winter) and leave them softer for longer.

After scrubbing, use a gentle hand soap that isn’t loaded with harsh detergents—those are a surefire way to dry out your skin even more. Check out NEST Fragrances Grapefruit Liquid Soap ($20.99), a light and nourishing product that leaves hands soft and smooth. It also infuses delicate hand skin with healing antioxidants that combat the harsh effects of nature’s free radicals, which can contribute to the early signs of aging. The scent is perfectly bright and uplifting for the season, too!

If your hands are in truly dire condition, you’ll need to kick your hand care game up a notch. A pair of Bliss Glamour Gloves ($32.99) works overtime to deliver intensive moisture to your hands. They’re made with grapeseed and ceramide gel, which deliver instant hydration. Although you can wear them for the recommended 20 minutes, you’ll reap greater rewards if you leave them on for longer—maybe while binge watching your favorite TV show or even while taking a nap. They’re perfect for maintaining your skin during the winter.

The Difference Between Day & Night Skincare Routine

You probably know that what our skin needs during the day differs from what it needs at night. You wake up every morning with the same skin you took to bed with you the night before, so your morning skincare routine should not be the same as your evening skincare routine. During the day, our skin is exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, pollution, bacteria, and other environmental factors, so it is important for us to protect our skin from these harmful elements. While it may be super convenient to use the exact same facial products both morning and night, it’s time to shake things up and make some changes to your PM and AM regimen.

 

Morning skin care routine:

1.Cleanser: We need to cleanse in the morning to get rid of the oil released by our skin during bedtime. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel  ($45.99) is a concentrated, soap-free, foaming gel designed to thoroughly remove impurities without disturbing the skins natural moisture balance. A face wash for all skin types including sensitive skin, it contains no artificial fragrance or color.

 

2.Moisturize: it is important that you apply a moisturizer to your face and smooth it in gently with circular movements. We recommend using a tinted option that can allow you to not only nourish your skin but also give you a natural look. The Jane Iredale Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer ($30.99) is a light and dreamy moisturizer deal to use alone or as a makeup primer.

 

3.Eye Cream: Eye creams are specially formulated to deliver targeted results to the ultra-delicate skin around the eyes. Karin Herzog Eye Cream ($43.99) is specifically designed for application to the eye contour where the skin is thinner and prone to the effects of premature aging. This product is also excellent for the lip area to combat the signs of premature aging.

 

4.Sunscreen: Before going out, don’t forget to protect your skin from UV rays with a good sunscreen. John Masters Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30.99) is a natural sunscreen that combines titanium dioxide and zinc oxide for all-over skin protection from harmful UVA & UVB rays

 

Evening skincare routine:

At night, our body repairs itself and the skin isn’t susceptible to environmental factors anymore, so you must focus on products that nourish, hydrate, and repair.

1.Remove makeup and clean your skin: After a long day, you must remove your make up with a product like the Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-Up Remover ($17.99) this product is specially developed for sensitive skin and the delicate eye area.  This gentle formula removes dirt, make-up and impurities.

2.Nourishing, Age-Corrective Serum: Nighttime is the perfect time to apply an age-corrective serum, since it will assist in the natural reparation process your skin goes through every evening. The Avene Hydrance Optimal Hydrating Serum ($29.99) is a hypoallergenic moisturizing facial serum. This serum moisturizes your skin while healing and regenerating cells.

3.Deep Moisturizer: Finish up your nighttime routine with a rich moisturizer that is capable of deeply penetrating your skin and preparing it for the following day. For this, the Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Night Moisturizer 1oz ($77.99) is a great option! This a cream that is formulated to repair and hydrate dry, damaged skin. The cream also has anti-aging properties that overtime to smooth out imperfections and wrinkles.

 

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!
