What Type of Sunscreen Do You Need?

The countdown to summer is on—and that means it’s also time to reintroduce sunscreen to your skin care routine if you haven’t already done so. While it’s a year-round essential, many people simply don’t use it until the temperatures soar and the sunshine beats down on their skin. As long as you use it, you’re in good shape. But are you using the right type of sunscreen?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), there’s no specific type that is better than another. However, it is important to seek out a formula that meets the following criteria: it should have a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more, provide broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, and be resistant to water. All of these factors will offer you greater protection from burning, the visible signs of aging, and skin cancer.

Based on your skin type, where you’re going to be, and what your preferences are, you can select from a wide range of sunscreens. Here are several we love and highly recommend for their protective benefits:

For Normal Skin

If you have normal to combination skin, you’ll benefit from a lightweight formula that increases your ability to resist harmful ultraviolet rays and minimizes the odds of developing fine lines and wrinkles. PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Water-Resistant ($25.99) is a potent product that lasts whether you’re taking a dip in the ocean or relaxing by the pool. It contains caffeine, a hyper-charged anti-aging ingredient that works overtime to save your skin.

For Oily Skin

Dealing with oily skin can be especially frustrating in the summer, when sebum production seems to go into overdrive. Luckily, products like bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($21.99) help soak up the shine while giving your skin the protection it needs when you’re outside. And if you happen to have a few dry patches, this will help stave off the flakes and improve the overall appearance of your skin with regular use.

For Dry Skin

Dry skin can be difficult to treat, especially when it comes to selecting an effective sunscreen that won’t make the problem even worse. Seek out formulas enriched with moisturizing ingredients, like gentle oils or squalene. Avene Hydrating Sunscreen Balm SPF 50 ($13.99) contains shea butter and glycerin, both potent “drinks” for your skin that help nourish. Vitamin E protects your skin from antioxidant damage, while Avene’s signature thermal spring water provides some calming protection.

For Sensitive Skin

Don’t let blotchy skin and hypersensitivity stop you from wearing sunscreen. If anything, you need it more than ever to minimize the odds of aggravating already irritated skin. Try Dermablend Cover Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($25.99) if your goal is to cover the redness while protecting your complexion. This provides full coverage, so you can rest assured that the ruddy nose, dark spots, and undereye circles will all be beautifully concealed. With up to 16 hours of coverage, it’s available in 21 shades and won’t budge.

The Beauty Tools You Always Need In Your Bag

You might find that carrying beauty staples like powder and lipstick are essential to maintaining your makeup look on the go, but including tools in your bag is just as important, if not more so! Even if it’s one of those days where you cannot be bothered with makeup, there are certain tools that come in handy when you least expect it. We found the five best tools from Tweezerman that will barely take up any space in your purse—and will save the day in unanticipated situations.

We know what you’re thinking—why not use a kabuki brush instead for powdering? While a bigger brush is good for dusting a light layer of translucent powder over freshly applied foundation, it’s not the best option when you need a quick touch-up. Tweezerman’s Blender Brush ($12.99) is the perfect size to get rid of any shine, blend blotchy eyeshadow, and dust away mascara flakes that may have fallen on your cheek during the day. Plus, if anything lands on your keyboard at work, you can easily dust it off with this brush. (Just make sure to wash it after!)

Point-Tip Tweezers

Considered the sharpest of all tweezers, these bad boys can grab even the tiniest of eyebrow hairs. Our favorite is the stainless steel Tweezerman Point Tweezer ($18.99) because they’re rust resistant and have the most precise points. Aside from plucking your hairs, these tweezers can be used for so many different things in everyday life. To name a few, you can remove splinters, clean debris underneath nails, and untangle delicate necklaces. As with a brush, we recommend cleaning it before every use.

Is it spring yet? Because I sure can’t wait for it to get here already. Give me all the bright colors, the sunshine and warm…Brow Scissors

They’re great for trimming your brow hairs, but they’re pretty versatile all around since they’re scissors. Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors & Brush ($16.59) are small enough to carry in your bag, but have large enough blades to cut packages, stray threads from clothing, and hangnails. The tweezers also come with a spoolie brush, which works well for removing any stubborn mascara smudges on your eyelids, exfoliating your lips, and calming down any of your fly-away hairs.

Magnification Mirror

Measuring at 3.4” by 0.4”, the Tweezerman Tweezermate 12X Magnification Mirror ($11.99) is as compact and practical as a portable mirror can be. With its optically correct 12X magnification feature, this sleek mirror works well for any precision tasks you need done while traveling. We’re talking tweezing to makeup application to contact lens insertion. It’s clear from edge to edge so you’ll be able to see everything up close and personal—you can practically examine every pore with this tool if you want!

Nail File

Last but not least, every woman needs a sturdy nail file in her bag. You never know when the edge of your nail will start to snag on everything, or—even more painful than a breakup—your nail breaks. Tweezerman Neon Hot Nail Filemates ($3.99) includes three colorful files in a travel-friendly size so you will always be prepared if tragedy strikes. You could also use it to rub away super glue on your skin and over pills on a sweater to get rid of fuzz. And as an added bonus, you can sharpen your tweezers with it by pulling it across the nail file a few times in the same direction.

The Power of Overnight Beauty Products

Are you doing all that you can to love your skin—when it matters the most? Although it may seem that your entire body checks out when you finally fall into bed at the end of the day, the truth is that your skin is only just getting started. During the overnight hours, your skin goes into what’s commonly known as “recovery” mode, when it starts to repair and renew after a day spent exposed to the elements, dirt, debris, and makeup.

Part of that is due to the body’s increase in melatonin, which makes you feel tired and helps your skin improve its condition. It even helps minimize the damaging effects of exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays! Your human growth hormone (HGH) also goes into overdrive at night. You can thank HGH for improving your cellular turnover rate and improving your skin’s ability to heal. And finally, nighttime is the right time to give your skin the targeted treatment it needs—because those hours are when your skin is most responsive to what you use.

Want to rev up your overnight routine and reap the benefits of the midnight hour? Here’s what we love:

Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Beauty Sleep Serum ($59.99): Serums are genius products to use at any time of the day, but your skin will love using this lightweight formula when the sun sets. It contains Tahitian black pearl extract, which is designed to detoxify the skin—also known as sucking away all of those impurities that threaten to clog pores, cause breakouts, and leave your complexion looking tired. Used daily, it will also soften your skin and improve its tone.

Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($31.79): You’ve heard all about the benefits of ingesting superfruits, but did you know they’re pretty super for your skin, too? This indulgent mask contains camu camu berry, which is hyper-charged with vitamin C to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. At the same time, this mask also softens skin to leave you feeling smoother and looking brighter come morning.

GLAMGLOW Dream Duo Overnight Transforming ($46.39): For those who enjoy the beauty of convenience, this product has you covered. It includes a “dream serum,” which sinks right into your skin and contains an elevated infusion of vitamins formulated to smooth and brighten a sallow complexion. “Dream seal,” meanwhile, locks in the potency of the serum with a potent combination of hyaluronic acid and mozuku green algae, which work in tandem to plump up aging skin and leave it fresher and more moisturized.

 

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.

The Best Foundations for Every Skin Type

You don’t have to be a makeup maven to know that some products are better suited to your skin than others. In fact, you don’t need even an ounce of beauty know-how to recognize that what works for one may not work for you—and that’s good news, because at TheBeautyPlace.com, we carry a foundation for every type of skin, no matter your allegiance to beauty. Whether you’re just looking for a quick and effortless cover-up or want something that’s complex enough to bolster your skin care routine, you’ll find it here. Here, our suggestions.

For Normal Skin

Blessed with amazing skin that barely needs a drop of makeup? You’re oh so lucky—but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of some of the amazing products out there. We love Glo Skin Beauty Luminous Liquid Foundation ($55.99) because it simply amplifies your complexion and adds a little extra radiance. Who wouldn’t benefit from that?

For Dry Skin

Dealing with dehydrated skin is a common springtime woe that usually comes after months of exposure to dry, cold air. You can minimize the discomfort by packing on the moisturizing products, such as Glo Minerals LUXE Liquid Foundation ($39.99). This light, mineral-based formula won’t sink into dry areas, instead
smoothing gently on to reveal a bright complexion that appears healthy and radiant in any light.

For Sensitive Skin

Skin that is sensitive, damaged, irritated, or otherwise compromised may benefit from a potent product that works overtime to provide high-octane coverage. We’re big fans of Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation ($25.99), which is available in several colors. The medium-coverage product helps minimize the look of scars, dark marks, redness, and other imperfections, while toning down sensitivity and allowing skin to breathe.

For Oily Skin

It’s important to stick with lightweight formulas if you have oily skin. TIGI Cosmetics Whipped Foundation ($18.99) is an oil-free product enriched with nourishing vitamins and antioxidants to protect skin. The light coverage ensures that your skin won’t be weighed down with unnecessary product, yet you’ll still get the benefits of a high-performance foundation that covers any imperfections you want to hide.

 

Which Moisturizer To Get Based On Your Skin Type

Unless a skincare professional has explicitly told you what skin type you have, it’s pretty hard to discern for yourself. Sometimes, it feels like your skin is super greasy, but then you have those days where everything seems normal. Although a few factors can come into play like the environment and your age, most skin types fall into one of five categories: oily, dry, combination, sensitive, or normal. We’ll explain each category so that you can take the trial and error out of skincare and choose the best moisturizer for your specific skin type.

Oily Skin

Indicators: Large pores, an all-over greasy sheen, and the need to use blotting sheets several times throughout the day.

Solution: Avoid heavy creams—instead, go for Avene Mattifying Fluid ($22.99), a lightweight soap-free lotion that will regulate excess oils but still keep your skin hydrated. While you might feel tempted to skip moisturizer altogether, your skin will actually become oilier if you try to dry your skin out. Fortunately, this moisturizer is water-based so it will completely absorb into your skin in just a few minutes.

Dry Skin

Indicators: Itchy, flaky, and/or red skin that feels uncomfortably tight after cleansing.

Solution: First, stop using hot water to cleanse as it strips your skin of natural oils. Stick to lukewarm water, instead. Second, quench your skin’s thirst with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer like Obagi CLENZIderm MD Therapeutic Moisturizer ($26.99). This moisturizer replenishes chapped skin with two potent ingredients: Allantoin, a plant-derived compound that heals skin by stimulating cell regeneration, and glycerin, which hydrates the skin by drawing water into your skin’s outer layer from the air.

Combination Skin

Indicators: Your cheeks are dry but you have an oily t-zone (that’s your forehead, nose, and chin).

Solution: Combination skin is probably the trickiest of all the skin types, which is why you’ll need a two-in-one product. Your best bet is PCA Skin Clearskin ($31.89) since it balances moisture levels and helps soothe acne-prone skin at the same time. You won’t have to worry about clogged pores or an oily residue thanks to the fast-absorbing formula.

Sensitive Skin

Indicators: Your face turns red with light pressure and the majority of the products you’ve put on your skin causes redness and stinging as well.

Solution: Get your skin to react positively with Dermalogica Barrier Repair ($35.99). This silicone-based moisturizer soothes sensitive skin by protecting it from free radicals and inflammation. Free of any artificial colors and fragrances, the vitamin-packed waterless formula will give your skin all the hydration it needs without any irritation.

Normal Skin

Indicators: An even skin tone with no sheen or flaking (AKA, the goal of every skincare regimen).

Solution: Celebrate! Oh, and keep up that skin by moisturizing, of course. Peter Thomas Roth Ultra Lite Oil-Free Moisturizer ($23.79) is ideal for normal skin types as it provides antioxidant protection with vitamins A and E. The lightweight gel formula also contains allantoin—which as you’ve already read—works wonders for promoting healthy skin.

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!

All images courtesy Glamour.com

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.

 

3 Weird Beauty Hacks That Work

Convenience is everything these days—and that means we’re all jumping aboard the bandwagon when it comes to crazy-but-true beauty hacks that may not exactly be typical, but definitely work. It’s not so much that they’re impossible to try, but they just aren’t solutions you’d think to try at first. From using anti-chafe gel as a makeup primer (yes, really) to rubbing potatoes for fading scars, there are many bizarre beauty tips out there that actually work. Here are three of them—plus three products you can use instead if you’re a little too squeamish for the weirdness.

 

1. Anti-Chafing Makeup Primer

We’re still not sure about this one—but there are tons of women who swear on their beauty collections that it works. Many swear by Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel for its priming purposes. One of its primary ingredients is dimethicone, which is included in many makeup primers. At a fraction of the price of big-name brands, it helps makeup stay put all day long. If you’re a little uneasy about using it, though, you can always snag a bottle of bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer ($20.99). It contains vitamins C and E, both of which help leave skin radiant and soft.

2. Potato Scar Treatment

Odd but true: potatoes might help clear up unsightly skin imperfections, such as acne scars and dark spots. If you use it, be sure to slice the potato thinly and apply it to your skin in small sections to be sure that you don’t suffer a negative reaction. The potato’s natural moisture is thought to have natural mild bleaching properties. Of course, not everyone wants to rub a vegetable on their face. In that case, give SkinMedica Scar Recovery Gel ($26.99) a try—it’s infused with exfoliating lactic acid and wound-fighting centella asiatica.

 

3. Beer Rinse

Not quite a new concept, rinsing hair with beer is one of those age-old tricks to which many women attribute their shiny manes. Along with the glistening finish, you might even notice that the beer helps repair damage and rebuild hair that’s been weakened due to heat or environmental stress. But if you don’t want malt and hops in the shower, try nuts instead. Applying Macadamia Moisturizing Rinse ($16.99) to your strands for at least a minute helps moisturize, detangle, shine, and nourish even the most delicate, dehydrated hair. And it smells great, too.

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
