Quick Tip: Hydrate Dry Hands

Published on by

A huge pet peeve of mine is having dry hands, and it doesn’t seem to help that I’m constantly washing my hands or using hand sanitizer at work. No matter how much moisturizing hand cream I apply afterwards, it never seems to be hydrating enough.

So on the days it’s really bad, a little trick of mine is to use a moisturizing foot crème on my hands. These products are made extra emollient to penetrate into the thick skin on feet. AHAVA Dermud Intensive Foot Cream works fantabulously! The Dermud line is a bump up from the original AHAVA line, because it contains a higher amount of the Dead Sea mud to dramatically increase moisture levels in skin. I like to use it at night right before bedtime on my hands and feet, it’s a great hydrating treatment to do at least once a week.


Key Ingredient: Rice

Published on by

Rice has been used for centuries as part of traditional beauty and skin care regiments in many places around the world. Recently during our Juara training, co-founder Metta was training us on the Juara Rice Facial Cleanser and she gave us a beauty tip that has been part of her culture for as long as she can remember. Briefly, she said when you rinse rice at home, take the water from the rinsed rice and use it to rinse your face and you will find that your skin is softer and smoother.

In learning about this ancient beauty tradition I found that for centuries rice has been used to ease many skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and dryness. Rice has also been used as a skin care mask when ground up finely with milk or water to create a paste that is then applied to the skin for 15-20 minutes then rinsed. Since rice contains allantoin, it also acts as an anti-inflammatory and is used for skin irritation and redness which makes perfect sense when considering the many uses in skin care products.

Learn more about rice in our key ingredient feature, and find out which products we carry by visiting our Rice section! One of our favorites is Juara Rice Facial Cleanser.


Five Quick Beauty Tips – All Day Makeup

Published on by

All of us have beauty tips that we’ve picked up along the way that have helped us out in a pinch or have provided beauty relief in a new or previously undiscovered way. Extending makeup wear is a popular subject as most of us are dashing from place to place. Look pretty as a plum all day long with these quick tips!

If you suffer from runny eye makeup change to waterproof liquid liner for extended stay put power and all day wear with no re-application.

For all day wear lashes that can last through the office, to the gym and then out to dinner waterproof mascara is your best friend. It will stay put all day and doesn’t require touch up.

Lip stain is perfect for extended wear. Unlike lipstick which is topical, lip stain will actually stain your lip with a light pigment that will last much longer than traditional lip gloss or lip stick. In a pinch, use your lip stain as blush that will stay in place all day.

Use primer before applying your foundation and your makeup will look better and stay in place through the day.

And finally, if you have oily skin, don’t reapply makeup all day, blot it with oil absorbing blotting paper. In a pinch, tear off a piece of a ladies room seat cover and blot away.

Extra! Extra! The latest from SkinCeuticals!

Published on by

SkinCeuticals announces their newest correcting and hydrating product, Metacell Renewal B3! This producMetacell2t is perfect, if you are just starting to see signs of aging due to sun exposure. This light gel-cream offers barrier repair, calming of inflammation, brightening, and correction for a dull skin tone. Tri-peptides help tighten the skin. It is also, great for dehydration and hyper pigmentation. Every skin type can benefit from a serum that boosts hydration levels. I have been using it for almost a week and have seen an improvement in firmness and brightening. In the morning I use it after the CE Ferulic. It absorbs nicely into the skin. So far, I give it an A+!

Another hot product is SkinCeuticals, Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50. I will be honest; at first I didn’t really see the need for this product. After learning that most facial cancers happen around the eyes AND knowing my own issues with sun damage around my eyes, I didn’t need any more convincing. Plus, for those of us who wear glasses the sun rays are magnified through the lenses, exposing the already delicate under eye area to more harmful UV rays. Yikes! I get it now, you totally need this product. Like its uber-popular facial counterpart, SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50, it is tinted. So, you can use it like a concealer or an eye shadow primer. There is no moisturizer in it, so it’s not greasy. In fact a colleague reported that it actually controlled the oil on her eyelids. We love it and think you will too!
