How To Create A Spa Day At Home

fbc09721fcc7a425c63a956faeadd663As modern women, we are in a constant hustle! There’s always a thing to do (sometimes a thousand), a meeting to attend or something new to solve. Anyways, we’re always in heavy motion! However, we never loose our women instinct, as we constantly want to keep our nails neat, our hair shiny and our clothes on point. But unfortunately, with all those things in our mind, sometimes we might forget to take care of our skin, which deteriorates with constant exposure to the sun, pollution and the inappropriate use of make up.

We understand that with a very busy agenda, it results almost impossible to schedule a monthly visit to the spa, but we’re here to help! We’ll show you a series of steps and recommendations so that you can easily enjoy a spa day at home –yes, it is a good as it sounds!

The first step to any relaxing spa day is setting the mood. Tuning into your favorite relaxing Spotify music station and lighting your must have candle, is key. A Nest Classic Candle will transform your bathroom into a relaxing haven.

desmaquillando

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. Sounds great right? Trust us, it is amazing!    tonico-2

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!

Lets moisturize! Last but not least, let finish our home spa day session by applying a good moisturizer. Avene Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream ($18.99) will nourish your skin to the fullest without leaving a greasy appearance. This product prevents the dehydration of your skin and eliminates excess glitter and oil. It’s just what we need to pamper our skin!

Having a spa treatment has never been so easy! Remember to follow each of these steps to get magnificent results on your face. You’ll see how your friends will want to join you on your spa days at home after they see your skin looking bright and vibrant!

Get Into the Spirit of the Season with Holiday Makeup Essentials

With the holiday season looming before us, you can pretty much count on a calendar jam-packed with social events. How you juggle that schedule is entirely up to you. At TheBeautyPlace.com, our mission is to help you juggle it in gorgeous style. Peruse our virtual aisles to find just the products you need to see you through the coming months, from glamorous lip hues to flattering eye colors. Here are some of our favorites:

d797e88ac00909fa3ae1400f173d6f54Now is definitely the time to play around with smoldering, smoky eyes. Use the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad ($30.99) to create a killer look using shades of gray, charcoal, and black. Use the shimmery white hue to brighten the inner corners of your eyes—it won’t dull the intensity of the smokiness, but it will open up your eyes and make you look more awake. Don’t forget to pile on the mascara for extra oomph!

Color us obsessed with anything sparkly during the holiday season. One of our favorites is Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust ($10.99), a fine powder that looks just as gorgeous on the skin as it does in the cute jar. To use, pick up some powder with a fluffy makeup brush and dust it onto cheekbones and even décolleté for an instant color boost. Available in three colors, including silver, gold, and this peachy-pink champagne, the effect is pure radiance.

What’s your glam factor during the rest of the year? If you tend to play it safe most of the time, now is a good time to amplify your beauty routine with one or two products that really make your features pop. Ease into the idea with Glo Minerals Gloss in Poppy ($12.99), a fiery hue that provides an intense, glassy finish and imparts true, lasting color. The formula is packed with nourishing oils and healing antioxidants that actually improve the condition of your lips with regular use—just in case you need an excuse to wear the brazen hue.

Infused with diamond dust, this unique formula shines from every angle, and from afar it almost resembles sparkling rubies. What better way to complement those new peep-toe heels?

Your beauty collection is jam-packed with the hottest lipsticks, the most up-to-date skin care, the trendiest hair products. Can you say the same about your tool collection? At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find an enormous selection of the key tools you need to achieve a gorgeous look every single day. Here are four tools of the trade you absolutely have to have.

beautyblender

If you do nothing else, purchase the BeautyBlender Original + Mini Solid Cleanser Kit ($20.99). This duo includes the genius teardrop-shaped makeup applicator that’s designed to minimize waste and give your complexion a flawless appearance. The rounded tip makes it easy to hone in on those problematic areas, like the corners of your nose and the inner corners of the eyes. The included cleanser is a solid substance that’s great to carry on the go—it removes excess residue and keeps your BeautyBlender pristine for longer (and it smells great, too!).

Ask anyone who maintains their brows at home: It can be tricky to get it right every single time. A good pair of tweezers can help! The Tweezerman Wide Grip Slant Tweezers ($15.99) makes it easier to achieve just the look you desire. The oversized grip provides a more comfortable tweezing experience, while the slant tip makes it easy to grip even the smallest, most stubborn hairs. (Bonus points for the fun purple color—it’s a great addition to any tool kit!)

A foundation brush is one of the most important tools you can add to your kit. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation Camouflage Brush ($24.99) provides a great alternative to applying makeup with your fingers. This product hits the nooks and crannies beautifully, and the tapered end is ideal for expertly applying concealer beneath the eyes, in the corners of the nose, and other areas that don’t require a great deal of product.

It’s important to keep your makeup brushes clean, no matter how tedious a chore it might be. Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner ($13.99) makes it a bit more of a palatable process, thanks to its lightweight formula enriched with mild seaweed conditioner and grapefruit extract. It works on contact to wash away debris, oil, and grime that collect on brushes over time.

makeup-brushes

There’s nothing like a visit to the spa and a pampering pedicure. Let’s face it, though: sometimes life gets in the way, making it incredibly difficult to drop funds on a luxurious treatment. In the meantime, you can enjoy a DIY treatment with some help from the BioSwiss 5-Piece Pedicure Set ($7.95). It contains everything you need to achieve a gorgeous at-home pedicure, including nail clippers, a nail file, a nail brush, a pumice stone, and a pair of toe separators.

A great hairbrush is often the key to an amazing hair day. Just think about how awesome your mane looks when you leave the salon. It’s time to add your own high-end hair tools to the mix! The Bio Ionic BoarShine Brush Set ($37.99) includes BoarShine brushes in medium, large, and extra large sizes. Use them to achieve a smooth, sleek finish, add volume, and control frizz.

Don’t miss our Tools of the Trade sale, running from Saturday, Oct. 8 through Friday, Oct. 14. It’s a great time to stock up on all of the essentials you need for your tool kit!

Make it a regular part of your cleansing routine to keep skin clear and oil-free.

Do it one better by adding Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($43.99) to your routine. This hydrating treatment is infused with vitamin C-rich camu camu berry. Over time, it may even help prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

The best thing you can do for your skin is protect it from harmful UV rays. During summer, Murad Essential-C Day Moisture ($41.99) is an ideal choice. It’s infused with SPF 30 and potent antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage and boost skin’s radiance.

Foundation can feel heavy during summer, but there are other ways to perk up your skin without weighing down your complexion. Youngblood Lunar Dust in Twilight ($21.99) is a shimmery dusting powder that instantly brightens up your look with no effort. Dust it onto cheekbones and anywhere the sun naturally hits to create a natural glow.

Try Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner andBronzer ($27.99) for a simple, gradual boost of color that develops over a period of days. The result is fresh and vibrant, not orange and unflattering, and it even boasts a refreshing citrus fragrance—the complete antithesis of the usual tanner scent.

The Hottest Beauty Trends of Summer 2016

It’s the season of fresh. As summer approaches, we’re gearing up for three months of endless color, luminous skin, and even a few unexpected beauty twists. Here are the hottest trends of the moment, with a few of our favorite products to help you get the look.

Bold Lips814ec694965f13a39fe6eaccdb532130

 From Zac Posen to Anna Sui, runway models brightened up the catwalk with their bolder-than-bold lips. What better way to punctuate your look this summer than with a bright lip? It’s the perfect way to show off some color without overdoing the rest of your face. Try Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Exposed ($19.99) for a fresh pop of color.

Blue Lids

723363b1521ce391e90c36e70f2407d8Blue eyeshadow? What is this, 1983? Believe it or not, though, the aquatic hue made quite a splash on the spring/summer 2016 runways. And rocking this raucous hue isn’t as tricky as you may think, especially if you opt for a product like the TIGI Cosmetics HD Quad Eyeshadow in Lush ($19.99). In addition to a brilliant blue, it contains three other mineral-infused shades that create the perfect day or night looks.

Undone Hair059b2f2447d72d6c629ea3c12274903d

While “messy” isn’t the usual look we strive for, we couldn’t help but fall for the slightly unkempt looks shown at Tracy Reese and Marc Jacobs. Hair was casually mussed, completely unfussy, and barely styled. And anything that simplifies our beauty routines is a definite yay! Achieve the look with Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturizing Mist ($18.93). Just run it through wet hair to show off those enviable beach waves. It contains Dead Sea salts, which help lend hair that slightly undone, roughed up look.

Dewy Skin

f2d935d4fdee5ee580743995a2e53907 It seems like every summer is the summer of flawless, dewy skin. The barely-there look is best achieved with a lightweight tinted moisturizer, the antithesis to your usual heavy foundation that may weigh your look down (and, let’s face it, sweat right off within minutes). bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream ($23.99) covers all the necessary bases: It provides just enough coverage to minimize flaws, contains SPF 30 to combat harmful UV rays, and feels light and silky against skin.

Shimmery Finish
1f29d83876106363fe46abe18dcde45e 
A little shine never hurts – just as long as it’s not a slick of oil messing with your T-zone. Taking inspiration from the glittery complexions spotted at Baja East and Alice + Olivia, apply the vibrant Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Luster ($20.99) all over your face for an instantly perked up visage. You can use this product anywhere, from your cheekbones to your eyelids.
