One of the best ways to combat stubborn fine lines and wrinkles is with a product that not only attacks those visible signs of aging, but also improves skin tone and texture. NIA 24 Skin Strengthening Complex ($54.99) offers the solution: it’s a creamy treatment enriched with antioxidants like green tea and rosemary, while vitamin A helps improve skin’s elasticity. With regular use, skin feels firmer and smoother, looks clearer and brighter, and appears more youthful.

Dry, aging skin requires a double whammy—a potent product that does more than merely moisturize or reduce lines. Skinmedia HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator ($108.99) has the answer. This lightweight serum contains hyaluronic acid, which is formulated to reduce visible signs of aging while drenching parched skin with much-needed hydration.

The modern woman demands convenience of her cosmetics—no challenging applicators, unwieldy bottles, or difficult contraptions with which to mess around. Enter Jane Iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation ($27.99). The lightweight mineral product combines the coverage of foundation with the airy feel of powder and the heavy-duty prowess of concealer to result in the ultimate skin-coverage tool. It also contains SPF 20 to product your complexion from harmful ultraviolet rays.

Also in line with the most convenient products in the universe, the Jane Iredale In Touch Cream Blush ($17.99) is perfect for women on the go. But whether you toss it in your makeup bag, your travel case, or your desk drawer, you can count on it to brighten up a sallow complexion in mere seconds. It’s available in several flattering colors, boasts a lovely, buttery finish, and even smells amazing.

Sometimes what your skin really needs is a tinted moisturizer in lieu of a foundation. Elta MD UV Daily Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 ($19.99) provides a genius solution to a number of skin concerns. It’s enriched with hyaluronic acid to combat fine lines and wrinkles while improving hydration, and contains free radical-busting antioxidants. A light tint provides just the right amount of coverage.blog_image

When it comes to cult beauty products, Egyptian Magic Natural All Purpose Skin Cream ($26.99) outperforms them all. This multipurpose product lives up to its name—it’s truly the wonder tool in any woman’s beauty kit. It’s made with a hyper-moisturizing blend of beeswax, olive oil, honey, royal jelly, and bee pollen, all of which leave skin feeling softer and smoother than ever. It can even be used on flyaway hairs or as an aftershave, and it feels incredible on sensitive skin.

Let’s hear it for the boys, who catapulted Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser for Hair & Body ($21.99) to the top of this year’s best-selling men’s products list. The reviving blend includes notes of eucalyptus, rosemary, and juniper berry—it’s a refreshing scent that’s guaranteed to wake anyone up in a hurry! The formula is also softening, to leave skin feeling as great as it smells.

The BeautyBlender Two BB Clean set ($37.99) provides the perfect introduction to this now-iconic product. It includes two sponges and a cleanser, and it’s guaranteed to transform makeup application into the easiest process ever. That’s because the teardrop-shaped sponge navigates those tricky areas—like the corners of the nose and the inner eyes—like a pro. Forget about uneven foundation. This product does it all, and it’s earned all of the accolades for a good reason

The SPF Products You Need Now

Sunscreen is the most important ingredient you can add to your skin care routine. This potent product protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UVA rays: UVA and UVB. UVA skins penetrate the skin deeply, and leave it susceptible to premature lines and wrinkles. Skin may appear leathery and droopy with repeated sun exposure. UVB rays, meanwhile, are the key cause of sunburns.

00-spf-lip-balms

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we recognize that there’s more to your beauty routine than simply looking great—it’s also about adding effective products to the mix that actually make a long-term difference in the condition of your skin. We carry an extensive range of products loaded with SPF, including makeup and skin care products. Here, the ones we suggest to help protect your skin from those dangerous UV rays.

Dry skin benefits from ultra-hydrating moisturizers that drench skin with much-needed emollients. One to try: PCA Skin Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($25.99). This enriching moisturizer is loaded with free radical-busting antioxidants that leave skin looking healthier over time.

If you wear makeup every day, you may as well choose a formula that offers more than just the standard coverage. bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder SPF 25 ($17.99) is perfect for completing your look. It gives skin a natural, practically flawless finish, and it’s ideal to use on oily skin because it soaks up the sebum to prevent that telltale shiny gleam.

coola-eco-lux-sport-continuous-spray-spf50-unscented-8-oz-bfRain or shine, it’s smart to wear sunscreen year round. One of the easiest to use is COOLA ECO-LUX Sport Continuous Spray SPF 50 ($30.99). The spray-on formula is quick and easy to use, and it provides continuous, water-resistant coverage for up to 80 minutes. As it blocks those harmful UV rays, it also kisses skin with a fresh, fruity guava mango fragrance. It’s perfect for summer—but during those cooler months, it will remind you of the warmer months to come!

 

If you’re at all familiar with the no-makeup movement, you probably wish you could get on board with it. Try a tinted moisturizer, like Quitessence Sunshade SPF 30 Tinted ($22.99), which contains green tea and vitamins D and E to help repair existing damage while preventing further problems. It’s available in light, medium, and dark skin tones, so there’s one for everyone.

 

uvlipbalmtube_mediumDon’t forget your lips! Smooth and creamy, Elta MD UV Lip Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($9.99) is a water-resistant formula that combats the harsh effects of dry air. Your lips will feel softer for longer, and over time you’ll notice a visible improvement in the condition of your pout. Feel free to wear this over your favorite lipstick—it’s lightweight and colorless, so it’s perfect for adding a much-needed layer of protection.

 

What’s your SPF quotient? Make sure your beauty collection is loaded with the SPF-infused products you need for your skin and body. Don’t miss our SPF sale, beginning this Saturday, October 15, at TheBeautyPlace.com!

Fall Getaway: 5 Essential On-the-Go Products

Part of planning your fall vacation is stocking up on the essential beauty products you’ll need while you’re on the road. It’s true that hotels provide some limited items, like shampoo and conditioner, but you’re usually on your own when it comes to other things. Fortunately, theBeautyPlace.com is stocked with everything you need to look glamorous on the go. Here are five essential products for your next getaway.

Take your dermatologist’s best tools on the road! The Dr. Brandt Glow Travel Kit ($42.99) is a two-piece set that includes pump bottles of Overnight Resurfacing Serum and Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme. Apply the cream to cleansed skin in the AM, making sure to follow with sunscreen (retinol can make your skin more susceptible to sunburn). Before bed, apply the serum to your skin and wake up to smoother, deeply hydrated skin in the morning.

There’s no guarantee your brows won’t go astray even during a short weekend trip. Keep them in perfect control with some help from Tweezerman Mini Brow Rescue Kit ($20.99), which is packed with everything you need to achieve picture-perfect arches on the go. Use the tweezers to pluck pesky strays, the Browmousse to keep brows in place, and the Eyenhance pencil to highlight the brow bone for an eye-opening finish. There’s also a shaping brush to help control thicker brows.

Lip moisturizer is a must, especially if you’re flying and exposed to dry cabin air. Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm ($12.99) works instantly to hydrate parched lips. It even soothes the pain of chapped lips. Its formula is a revitalizing cocktail of vitamins E and F, plus Avene thermal spring water. The combination imparts long-lasting moisture while keeping lips healthier and smoother in the long run.

fb_fallskincareSince most hotels don’t offer toothpaste, you may as well pack the best of the best. The Supersmile Pro Whitening System ($2.99) includes tubes of whitening toothpaste and whitening accelerator. To use, apply a drop of each onto a dry toothbrush and gently brush. This tiny duo will last you a month—or several trips!

Why lug around a heavy bottle of foundation when you could slip a tube of La Roche Posay Rosaliac CC Cream SPF 30 ($1.99) into your cosmetic bag or purse? It evens out your skin tone and is gentle enough to use on even the most sensitive skin. It also hydrates dry skin and contains sunscreen to protect skin from harmful UV rays.

It starts with clear, flawless skin—the kind that seems almost lit from within without a stitch of makeup. Glo Therapeutics Clear Complexion Pads ($25.99) are infused with a brightening, breakout-busting, pore-cleansing combination of salicylic and citric acids that give your skin a vibrant look.

peter-thomas-roth-camu-camu-maskOvernight beauty products are definitely a big deal, and with good reason. Your skin does the bulk of its work while you sleep by repairing damage and developing new skin cells. That’s why your skin often looks amazing when you wake up. 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.

 

jane-iredale-tantasiaThere are safer ways to get a tan than baking in the sunlight for hours. 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.

Your Best Fourth of July Look Ever

It’s easy to dress up for Independence Day—all those stars and stripes, all that red, white, and blue. But dedicating your beauty routine to the star-spangled holiday is decidedly trickier, unless you’re perfectly fine stepping out wearing cobalt eye shadow and ruby lipstick simultaneously.84329cb254d723950b7ecf1b04dd6d4a

We think we’ve locked down just the products you need from TheBeautyPlace.com to make your Fourth of July the most gorgeous one yet. Here’s how to get into the spirit of the holiday and celebrate the nation in style.

e36e9c7484db2d8e866f18914bb0f58dNo doubt about it—it’s pretty hot in early July. Your face perspires, your makeup feels heavy, and your hair seems to take on a life of its own. Thanks to Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray ($17.79), you can knock that lastone off the list. With this essential styling tool in your arsenal, your mane will look amazing and stay put while you hang out on the rooftop catching the fireworks. Try a trendy braid and mist it with spray to keep it in place—and don’t worry about pulling off a complex, Kardashian-style plait when even a casual, loose braid looks perfectly adorable.

 

Raccoon eyes are another unfortunate side effect of warm weather, but you can up your game with bareMinerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara ($16.99). Create lengthy, voluminous lashes that won’t budge no matter what
the evening brings.

Now is definitely the time to rock some bold eyeliner behind t696f1be352f141746a048c103383d234hose lush lashes. Try TIGI Cosmetics Perfect Eyeliner in blue ($12.99) to achieve a festive look for the holiday. Don’t be timid—start at the inner corner of your eye and

make your way outward, finishing with a winged effect along the top lash line. Along the lower lashes, use a light color to make your eyes appear even larger. White is a great option in keeping with the holiday’s standard colors, but you can also try the soft peach Glo Minerals Precision Eye Pencil ($11.99) for a similar effect.

 

Balance out those brilliant eyes with a more subdued cheek color. Dust a light, natural shade, such as TIGI Cosmetics Glow Blush in Brilliance ($15.99), onto the apples of your cheeks to achieve an instant, summery glow that will also complement your tan.

Double Duty: Multiple Uses for Your Beauty Products

These days, we spend the majority of our time finding ways to save time. The fact is that time-saving solutions are a hot commodity. What better way to make the most of your early mornings – and maybe catch a few extra zzz’s – by using beauty products that pull double duty? Here are several products that work overtime, offering multiple uses and shaving minutes off your daily, often hectic routine.

f169be2c98a4314d3fa31aabd7ebedea

In a pinch, lipstick can double as blush – and a cream blush can also fill in for your lipstick, as needed. Then there are the genius products actually formulated to do both, like the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink ($17.79). Producing a soft, girlish flush, the flattering hue adds a kiss of color to your pout and brightens up even the most tired complexions in an instant. The creamy, water-resistant, long-lasting formula is a dream.jane-iredale-lip-cheek-stain

 

You reach for your shaving cream mid-shower, only to discover there’s barely a drop left. We’ve all been there – and we’ve all felt that desperately uncomfortable itch that occurs when we substitute soap for shaving cream. A better solution? Grab your hair conditioner. It’s rich, thick, and moisturizing, and it provides just the right slip to glide your razor over. Give TIGI Bed Head Elasticate Conditioner ($9.99) a try for its hydrating prowess. It’s as good to your skin as it is to your hair!

bed-head-elasticate

Just as valuable as time are options. We love a product that doesn’t stop at just one – it goes above and beyond, offering a plethora of possibilities. The CHI Nano Digital Flat Iron ($99.98) is a genius example. Not only does it straighten locks to perfection, but it also serves as a curling iron. With a quick flick of your wrist, you can use the iron to create lush, voluminous curls or even tight ringlets.

chi-flat-iron

Sometimes you just don’t have the time or motivation to address every single inch of your face. Simplify your routine with a product like Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Gleam ($20.99). A multipurpose product that serves as a blush and highlighter, it instantly brightens up a sallow complexion, adds color to cheeks and even contours your face to add dimension.glo-minerals-shimmer-brick

 

Who hasn’t overslept and taken a frantic shower – or worse, skipped that morning shower altogether – just to get to the office in time? If you can squeeze in a quick rinse, make use of Anthony Logistics’ Invigorating Rush Hair and Body Wash ($24.99). It’s designed to clean and condition your hair and your skin, so you’re left completely soft from head to toe – without the need to use a whole bunch of products to achieve the same effect.097735d6e58f15edb101e22edd367bd2

Self-Tanning 101: How to Achieve a Flawless Golden Glow

tumblr_nt7fg8QHAS1thynt0o1_500Summertime is crazy-fun time – a chance to soak up the sunshine, laze over lazy evening drinks on sidewalk patios, and hit the beach. But it’s also that time of year when a golden glow seems to take precedence over every other beauty goal. Here’s how to make a flawless self-tan come to life (we promise, it’s easy).

bliss-blood-orange-scrubBegin with freshly exfoliated skin. This is the most important step of all! Without sloughing off those dead skin cells and rough spots, you risk applyingself-tanner to areas that aren’t ready for it – and your self-tanning product will definitely show up as darker patches in those areas, too. A product like Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub ($31.59) is a dream in so many ways: it smells lovely, lathers up just like your favorite shower gel, and gentle scrubs away rough spots with mild sugar granules.

Dry off completely. Your skin shouldn’t be damp when you apply a self-tanning product, so towel off your body thoroughly and wait several minutes until you’re completely dry. (Use that time to dry your hair!)

dermalogica-body-hydrating-cream

Next, moisturize any dry areas on your body. A lightweight body lotion, such as Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream ($25.89), sinks into rough spots like elbows, knees, and ankles, creating an instantly smooth canvas for your self-tanner. Don’t forget your face! Smooth an equally light moisturizer like Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion ($28.89) onto dry areas, such as the corners of your nose and around your mouth.

avene-self-tannerIt’s time to tan! Choose an effortless product that takes the guesswork out of thewhole process. We love Avene Moisturizing Self-Tanning Lotion ($20.99), which applies just like – you guessed it – a body lotion. Smooth on this vitamin E-enriched product to achieve a fresh, natural-looking glow (and much softer skin). Use it for at least three days to reach your optimal shade preference.

 

tantowel-faceWho knew tanning your face could be this easy? Thanks to the TanTowel Face Tan Towelette ($30 for 15), you can enjoy a sun-kissed glow all season long – without worrying about damaging UV rays. Apply it as you would a moisturizer, buffing the towelette in a circular fashion over your entire face. Voila – a streak-free, gorgeous tan from head to toe.

 

532c312f50d978496de3ef7559961637

If you’ve made any mistakes, don’t fret – and please don’t attempt to remove all of your hard work by vigorously scrubbing your face and body! Instead, run a slice of lemon over the area and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The citric acid in the lemon will break down the tan and rid your skin of color, so you’ll have a fresh canvas on which to work.

Get Spring Ready with These Key Beauty Products

It may be pouring in many areas of the country right now, but one surefire way to prepare yourself for impending sunny skies is with an influx of new beauty products. Consider it a spring makeover. It’s just what your routine needs to get into a brighter state of mind. Here are some favorites, straight from the vaults of the Beauty Place.

la-roche-posay-sunscreen

At the top of every shopping list is a quality broad-spectrum sunscreen. Enriched with potent antioxidants formulated to combat harmful free radicals, La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Body Milk Sunscreen ($25.99) comes out a winner every year. This fast-absorbing emulsion provides protection from dangerous UVA and UVB rays while strengthening your skin with Cell-Ox Shield. This powerful combination of sun filters protects against cell damage while reducing your chances of skin cancer and premature aging due to sun exposure.

 

 

bareminerals-pop-of-passion A pop of color on your lips is so essential at this time of year. While cooler weather is all about dramatic, vampy shades with a come-hither approach, spring gives you the opportunity flaunt lighter, brighter hues. One to try is bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($14.99), a luxe formula that’s just as decadent as it sounds. Infused with nourishing vitamin E and hydrating passion fruit seed oil, it drenches lips with moisture while leaving behind a hint of color.

The deeper into spring it gets, the less your hair is impressed. Whether dealing with high humidity or torrential downpours, almost any type of weather situation spells potential disaster for your normally lovely mane. Take matters into your own hands with Blow Pro Weather Girl Anti-Frizz Serum ($17.93). Forming a protective shield over your strands, this lightweight formula combats frizz while adding a healthy, shiny finish.

bliss-ingrown-eliminating-pads

 

Whether you’re planning a spring break getaway or a family vacation, you may suddenly find yourself with a hairy dilemma. If shaving your bikini line leaves you more than a little uncomfortable, you need to nip that issue in the bud – and stat. A box of Bliss Ingrown Eliminating Pads ($9.29) works wonders. It contains powerful alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids that work to gently but thoroughly exfoliate skin. (Remember, this is key when you’re removing bikini hair!) Say farewell to those pesky bumps and enjoy smoother skin as you laze by the pool.
