How to Transition Your Skin from Winter to Spring

It’s that time of the year again. As you begin to swap your cozy coats and over-the-knee boots for lightweight cardigans and cute wedges, it’s time to rethink your skin care products. Daylight savings is this week (finally), and unless a last-minute winter surprise hits the forecast you can probably safely stow away the heavy-duty moisturizers and familiarize yourself with your warmer-weather favorites. Here’s how to make a seamless transition from winter to spring


Spring Clean Your Pores

Preparing your skin for warmer weather begins with a fresh canvas. Once or twice a week, swap your daily cleanser for a penetrating product formulated to purge oil, dirt, debris, and other impurities from the skin. Ingredients such as mud and clay are ideal for purifying the skin and dissolving oil that could otherwise leave your skin shiny for hours. We love Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Cleanser.

Exfoliate Twice a Week

If you have dry skin, you may exfoliate regularly already in an effort to reduce those telltale flakes. Otherwise it’s worth adding a quality facial scrub to your routine to renew your complexion just in time for spring. Skin may appear a bit lackluster after months spend indoors in dry heat. A scrub revives your skin, boosts circulation, and leaves it softer, too. Try Glo Skin Beauty Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub  for a smoothing treat that smells great, too.

Try a Lighter Moisturizer

Unless your skin is extremely dry on a regular basis, you don’t need to stick with the same heavy-duty moisturizer that saw you through fall and winter. A lighter emulsion is just right for hydrating skin without leaving skin greasy. You can also easily wear makeup over these formulas. Try bareMinerals Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion  for instant softness without the weight.

Never Forget Your SPF

No matter what the time of year, it’s imperative to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the ravages of potent ultraviolet rays. Be sure to select a broad-spectrum formula that combats both UVA and UVB rays to prevent both skin cancer and signs of aging, like wrinkles and dark spots. Remember to do this last—and make it a point not to skimp. If you’re short on time, try a moisturizing SPF product infused with a hint of color. We like Avene Complexion Correction Shield SPF 50+.

Speed Up Your Beauty Routine With These Time-Saving Picks

If it seems you’re always running a little behind schedule and wishing you could magically add a few extra hours to your day, you aren’t alone. The general chaos of life leaves us all a little overwhelmed. Usually those feelings arise early in the day, when we’re rushing to handle everything from getting ready to grabbing a bite to shuttling off to work. The problem? You want to do all of those things without sacrificing your much-beloved beauty routine. Fortunately, you don’t have to thanks to the advent of dozens of time-saving products designed to slash your beauty routine in half. Here are a few we love.

Foundation

On average, it probably takes you a few minutes to properly apply concealer and foundation, especially if you’re focused on covering imperfections. The PÜR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Foundation Stick changes that in an instant by putting everything you need into one sleek, swivel-up package. The creamy formula melds to a matte finish once it makes contact with your skin, providing a flawless finish that conceals dark spots, redness, and uneven tone. The formula is enhanced by anti-aging ingredients that promote a smoother complexion with regular use.

Eye Shadow

Are you sensing a trend here? Stick formulas make it easy to get ready on the go if you can’t avoid it, and they make it easy to apply your makeup with precision. Eye makeup can be tricky when you’re in a hurry, but the Glo Minerals Cream Stay Shadow Stick simplifies the process. It’s available in a multitude of hues that range from light to bold. We suggest washing the pale shade over your eyelids to wake up tired eyes, then adding a darker color to elevate the drama if you’re headed out after work

Highlighter

A healthy complexion looks bright, fresh, and radiant all day long. The beauty of makeup is that you can easily fake it if need be—and that’s what makes the Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter so essential to everyone’s arsenal. This easy tool twists up to reveal a light, soft tone that lends the skin that enviable lit-from-within glow you covet. It’s perfect for waking up a sallow face, illuminating cheekbones, and accenting areas that you feel need a little life. It’s infused with nourishing moringa seed oil for a hydrating touch.

Lip Gloss

If only there were a product that made your lips look just a little healthier than their natural state. The famed quest for a “your lips but better” shade may just come to a halt once you give bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor a try. Available in 20 colors, the collection proves that there’s a nude for everyone. The beauty of this gloss is in its ability to completely pull together your look in an instant. It glides on smoothly and dries to a natural, pretty finish that never feels drying.


Hair

Sometimes it’s the seemingly endless battle with our hair that takes up the most time. Shampooing, conditioning, drying, and styling all seem to take forever, and you don’t want to leave the house with what amounts to your own personal nest right on top of your head. What you need is an amplifying dry shampoo, such as Big Sexy Hair Volumizing, to plump up your roots while eliminating excess oil, dirt, and debris that amassed since your last shampoo. Bonus points for the refreshing scent!

 

Skin Care Ingredients to Add to Your Winter Routine

It’s that time of the year again—and there’s no better way to protect your skin from winter’s wrath than by filling up your beauty arsenal with key protective ingredients. The season’s usual side effects, ranging from ultra-dry skin to chapped lips to red skin, are annoying, sure, but they aren’t set in stone. There are several steps that you can take to ensure your skin doesn’t freak out just because the weather is having a tantrum. Here’s what you should add if you haven’t already included it in your regimen.

Squalane

You’ve probably heard of squalene, which comes from shark liver oil. But squalene is the plant-based alternative that your skin will love during winter. It’s designed to soothe irritated, reddened skin when you’ve just come in from the cold, and it can prevent your skin from the effects of potentially damaging free radicals. It’s a powerful antioxidant that nourishes on contact and works over time to protect your skin. Try Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil 100% Purified Squalane , which is a non-comedogenic formula that enhances your complexion and may even reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is the key to the baby-soft skin we all crave. Although we’re all born with it, it fades away as we grow older. It’s especially important to use during winter because it locks in moisture and leaves skin more supple and healthy looking. We’re loving Karin Herzog E&R Hyaluronic Acid Serum —not only does it deeply hydrate, but it also fills your fine lines to leave skin looking its smoothest.

Moringa Oil

Non-comedogenic, gentle, and suitable for all skin types, moringa oil has quickly earned a reputation as one of the most beneficial ingredients available. More than just a potent hydrator, it’s also known for its anti-aging properties and ability to enhance your complexion’s glow. If your skin is prone to rashes and burns when it’s cold outside, you’ll love the way moringa oil soothes on contact. Try Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Facial Oil  for quick results.

Ceramides

If you suffer from especially dry skin, you may already be familiar with this hyper-moisturizing ingredient that empowers your skin’s natural moisture barrier and helps lock in more water. That’s essential when temperatures drop, because your skin is far more susceptible to moisture loss when the air is so dry. Using a ceramide-rich product can leave even the driest skins healthier and softer. We love SkinMedia TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream . It can be used on even the most sensitive skin types.

Evening Primrose Oil

You may hear all about all types of oils year round, but few are as effective during winter as evening primrose oil. It’s enriched with essential fatty acids that help lock in the moisture you’re more inclined to lose as temperatures fall. This not only keeps your skin softer for longer periods, but also helps reduce the discomfort you might feel due to rough patches and inflamed areas. bareMinerals Eternalixir Skin-Volumizing Oil Serum is a skin-loving addition that softens on contact and helps make your skin more resilient with regular use.

How To: Ace The Red Smoky Eye Look!

It’s official! — red/pink eye shadow is the new neutral. With stars like Ruth Negga, Lily Collins, and even Queen Bey turning up in pink eyeshadow, pink blush and bright red lips, the combo is proving to be a real stunner — and a refreshing departure from the typical red lips and black, winged liner pairing we see this time of year.

Though it’s a risky shade, it can be surprisingly easy to pull off with the proper placement and blending skills. Choosing the right shade depends on your skin tone, and experimenting with the color base will help make sure you choose the right shade of red for you. However, to create this look, the Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eyeshadow  has the perfect red tone that goes with almost every skin tone, they also go on smooth and ensure long-lasting wearability!

Also, don’t forget you’ll need to add some orange to the corners to make it a little softer and less dramatic. The Glo Minerals Elemental Eyes Collection  this palette includes eight eyeshadows that will help you to perfectly get the smoky red look.

After you applied and blended the eye shadows, define the entire eye with a brown eye pencil, lining the upper and lower lash line so no skin is showing. Actually, we have the perfect product for that! Check out the Tigi Cosmetics Perfect Eyeliner  this pencil easily glides onto the eyelid without stretching the delicate skin around the eye.

To get this perfect look, apply a few coats of volumizing mascara. The more, the better! bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – Intense Black creates larger-than-life lashes. This mascara helps lengthen, thicken, and separate lashes for volume you can see.

 
Last but not least, an outstanding red smoky eye look needs to come along with tons of highlighter! Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter illuminates skin and adds a glow to any look. Shine bright babe!

The Best Beauty Products Celebrities Love Under $30

While A-list celebrities tend to gravitate toward high-end makeup brands, there are actually a lot of stars out there who are hooked on inexpensive products. But don’t let the price fool you—they’re as high quality as it gets. From foundation to lipstick, we’ve found some of the most affordable makeup products in the market right now that come with a stamp of approval right from your favorite Hollywood actresses.

 Primer:

Celebrity makeup always begins with a flawless base; namely, Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer ($30.99). Vanessa Hudgens wore this primer to the MTV Video Music Awards back in August, showcasing seemingly perfect skin. No surprise though, as this two-in-one product gives you a glowing complexion while blurring out all of your pores like a selfie filter.

Foundation:

It’s hard to believe that Jennifer Aniston is almost 50 years old with skin that amazing, but one of her secret weapons is Youngblood Liquid Foundation ($26.99). “I like how lightweight it is and it blends well,” she told The Cut, adding that she could also build up more coverage if needed. Infused with ocean minerals, green tea extract, and more, this fragrance-free product does as much good to your skin from within as it does on the outside.

Concealer:

For touching up any spots, Gal Gadot’s makeup artist revealed to HELLO! that she loves using bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($16.99) on her. In fact, she said it’s “one of her favorite products of all time.” If it’s good enough for Wonder Woman, it’s good enough for us mortals! The silky smooth formula is guaranteed to cover up both your under eye circles and discolorations while not being heavy on the skin.

Powder:

You may know Jennifer Lopez for that signature “J. Lo Glow,” but even she turns to powder to set her makeup. Used by her and Kirsten Dunst, Glo Minerals Pressed Base ($26.99) gives the skin an all-over even finish. You can use it either as a skin-colored setting powder or as a replacement for foundation if you’re not a fan of liquid formulas.

Eyeliner:

Emma Watson is all about eco-friendly and ethical beauty products, which is why she turns to Jane Iredale Liquid Eye Liner ($15.99) in Brown. She told The Gloss that it took her six months to find a good, natural eyeliner, but that this one’s it—and we agree. The latex-free eyeliner is gentle and nourishing on the skin thanks to essential oils like rosemary leaf and radish root extracts.

Lipstick:

To finish off any makeup look, a nude lip color is essential. Youngblood Lipstick ($12.99) is a great option as it’s a super pigmented lipstick formulated with natural oils and minerals. In fact, celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder told Glamour she applied the lipstick in Brown Sugar on Jessica Alba for a gala to accentuate the natural fullness of her lips. It also comes in 24 other colors so you can pick the perfect shade for your skin.

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.

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

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.

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).

Get the Look for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is one of the most wonderful days of the year for beauty junkies. Whether or not you’re part of a duo, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with the fabulous selection of pretty pinks and reds at TheBeautyPlace.com. Shop for date night, for a special friend (Valentine’s Day can easily be GALentine’s Day for your BFFs!), or for your very special self, and enjoy these picks that are destined to make this Valentine’s Day the best yet.

Give the gift of perfect skin! The Clarisonic Mia 1 in Electric Pink ($97.79) is designed to reduce impurities that may contribute to troubled skin. With regular use, it diminishes the appearance of pores, helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothes the complexion to leave behind a more radiant finish. If you’re a little lazy about your skincare routine or know someone who is, this is the ultimate kick needed to get into the habit—and see real results quickly.

You’ve always been told not to brush wet hair, but things have changed with the advent of the Wet Brush Detangle in Punchy Pink ($7.99). Not only is it sure to be the cutest thing on your vanity, it’s also guaranteed to be one of the most useful. Use it to detangle wet or dry strands by simply running it through from your roots down. It’s designed specifically not to damage, and it won’t tug or break your strands. Instead, it makes hair even more manageable and easier to style. So you can rock that glam Valentine’s Day ‘do you’ve been envisioning.

When better than date night to sport flushed cheekbones? Achieve the look with Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush in Brilliance ($15.99), a warm pink with a golden finish. The result is natural, colorful, and effortlessly pretty—it’s not unlike the glow you might experience after jogging around the neighborhood. In a pinch, you can even use this color on your eyelids to brighten up your entire look. The formula is light, but you can build it up easily for a more intense finish.

Wanted: A creamy lipstick with a stay-put formula that you can slick on and go. Found: Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick ($19.99), which ticks all of the boxes and goes well beyond expectation to deliver gorgeous results. It’s available in dozens of colors, but if you’re feeling especially festive you might want to try Margi, a brazen, no-fuss red that will probably turn a few heads. If you love the Valentine’s Day color spectrum but want to play it a bit safer, try Lucy, a soft, juicy pink that flatters nearly every skin tone.

The warm, alluring scent of vanilla adds the perfect finishing touch to your Valentine’s Day routine. At this time of year, a thick, nourishing moisturizer is practically law, and we think the Bliss Vanilla + Bergamot Body Butter ($21.69) is an essential that really stands up to the challenge. It delivers lasting hydration and is loaded with free radical-busting vitamins. It also exudes a light, pleasant scent that combines a hint of vanilla with sweet almond. It lingers but isn’t overpowering, and your skin will feel amazing.
