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: Adele Grammys 2017

Adele was one of the biggest stars from the Grammys 2017, not only because all the awards she won, or her beautiful speech to Beyonce when she won “Best Album of the Year”, but also because her flawless hair and makeup. If you’re also dreaming on how to get that natural but still stunning look, keep posted!

To prepare your skin start by applying the bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($20.99), providing skin-perfecting coverage, this primer-cream helps reduce the appearance of discolorations.

Then put a good base on your face with the Glo Minerals Protective Liquid Foundation Satin (25.99) to cover blemishes and other imperfections while providing protective antioxidant benefits.

Now, apply Jane Iredale Enlighten Concealer ($20.99) to the under eye area, T-Zone, and high planes of the face

Contour is a must! You can get the perfect effect with Tigi Cosmetics Creme Foundation – Dark ($18.99) to make your face look slimmer! Adele’s rosy cheeks and light pink lips perfectly complemented her olive green dress without distracting from her smoldering eye makeup and Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush ($16.99) will be your perfect ally on this!

The eye’s makeup is very easy to recreate! To copy Adele’s sultry makeup start by lining your lids in Jane Iredale Liquid Eye Liner ($15.99) glide on with precision starting from the inner corner to create her signature cat eye before layering a swipe of bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 ($35.99). First, apply a cream color all over your lid and then contour the socket creating a shadow with the darker shade of the palette. Make sure to do the blending to create that effect of depth. Don’t forget to add mascara to give the perfect final touch and the Jane Iredale Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara ($23.99) helps lashes look thicker and longer naturally!

To finish your Adele’s inspired look, fill the lip with the Glo Minerals Lipstick ($12.99) in the coral tone. Enhance the look of your lips with this bold, beautiful color!

 

 

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.

Everything You Need to Combat Winter Beauty Woes

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

The Must Have Products In Every Gym Bag

It’s a bit of a challenge to haul yourself to the gym before sunrise, but more often than not you get it done. What you do post-workout, though, is just as important as actually getting to the gym and completing your hardcore regimen. That’s because all that exercise has a tendency to do a number on your hair and skin. You don’t necessarily have to shower at the gym, but you should pack your gym bag with a few of these very essential items to take your workout game to the next level.

gym-essentials-2

No matter your hair type, you’ll probably have some sweat lingering on your scalp after your workout. Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($23.99) is a game-changer in the ever-burgeoning world of dry shampoos: it smells amazing, plumps hair up at the roots to provide some much-needed volume, and resists the usual powdery mess that is so typical of most of its counterparts. It contains hydrating argan and macadamia oils, both of which nourish your strands without weighing it down.

Those nightmare stories about breakouts that develop after a workout are no joke. Nip the problem in the bud by cleansing your skin with a powerful product, like Murad Clarifying Wipes ($15.99). They’re formulated to combat blemishes, remove dirt, sweat, and debris, and limit your skin’s excessive oil production. Swipe it over your face and neck after a workout to achieve an instantly fresh complexion.a274d5b420c9639472cd7a27e88fd0f0

To wear before, during, and after: Bliss Fabulips Glossy Balm ($11.99) absolutely nails it with an impressive formula that keeps lips continuously hydrated. It’s made with a hyper-moisturizing blend of shea butter and vitamin E, both of which deliver the goods on contact to leave your lips soft. There’s even a hint of mint to leave your breath smelling fresh. Dry air in the gym can really do a number on your lips in no time, so it’s a good idea to keep something like this on hand.

You don’t need to apply a full face of makeup after that fabulous workout session. Chances are you’re already sporting some pretty rosy cheeks, but if you want to boost your complexion while you’re running an after-gym errand, apply some Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($16.99) onto your cheekbones and call it a day. This is all you need to achieve that natural glow that mimics your skin’s innate beauty, and the twist-and-go formula is perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

Who actually wants to stow all of this stuff in an oversized gym bag and rummage around for it? What you need is a cute case to tote it in style, like this TIGI Cosmetics Bag ($1.99). An unbelievable deal, it’s sized just right for all of your essentials, and you can stick a few extras in there, too—think travel deodorant, hair ties, and a comb. P.S. Starting this week if you spend over $175 on SkinMedica Products you can receive a gift bag with four travel size SkinMedica products valued at over $105, that would be great additions to your gym bag.

When it comes to beauty, there are some places we all naturally tend to skimp: maybe it’s that little issue we have with removing makeup without fail every single night, or that kind of unsettling decision we make to let nail polish chip away on its own.

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we realize life gets in the way—which is why we’ve collated a few of our favorite products that will make it easy to make and keep your biggest beauty resolutions for 2017. Here is everything you need to stay on track!

Resolution: Keep my manicure fresh

Solution: OPI Euro Centrale Collection My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours, $7.99

The problem with manicures and pedicures is that they kind of don’t last forever. That’s unfortunate for those of us who are too busy to sit down and remove those last remnants of color, but actually pretty cool too because it allows you the opportunity to play around with so many different shades. Enter this nail color: a fiery, sexy hue that’s primarily red, yet injected with an orangey undertone that gives it a warmer feel. You can wear thisanywhere, at any time of year, and because it’s so dark you’ll want to remove the chipped bits as soon as possible. What better way to stay on top of your nail game?

Solution: Style Sexy Hair 450 Headset Heat Defense Setting Spray, $9.99

This setting spray keeps your hair safe from temperatures up to 450 degrees, so that you can freely dry or straighten without fear of damage, like breakage and brittleness. It also reduces frizz and adds a healthy, shiny finish, so your hair will look amazing all day long.

 

Resolution: Clean my makeup brushes

Solution: Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner, $13.99 or bareMinerals Quick Change Brush Cleaner 3.7 oz$15.99

One of the biggest beauty faux pas out there is something most of us are guilty of committing: not washing our makeup brushes regularly.

Make this process just a little more convenient with this spray, which helps brushes dry more quickly. It contains extracts of grapefruit, plus seaweed conditioner, to soften synthetic or natural hairs and rinse away gunky buildup from your makeup. It’s free of parabens, too, so individuals with sensitive skin don’t have to worry about dealing with reactions.

It’s the little things that count, after all, and applying some of this fragrance to your pulse points will serve as a reminder that you’re treating yourself to something special and indulgent.

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!
