Fake the Dewy Glow

Published on by

A natural healthy glow is always in! While you can enhance your complexion with color, you should not cross over the fine line between fake and natural looking. Here is a super quick way to fake a natural glow. Start with a clean face, moisturized face. Apply a tinted moisturizer a shade darker than your natural skin tone, this will give you a sun kissed look. Make sure you apply the tint all over the face and down to the décolleté area. An example product which would be perfect is the Dream Tint Moisture Tint SPF 15 by Jane Iredale. To stay with a natural appearance, use a cream blush on the apples of the cheeks or on the top area of your cheek bones and blend. At this point, your skin tone should appear dewy or glowing with a touch of a natural blushing effect. Stila makes great convertible cream colors for use on the cheeks and lip, we love the Gerbera shade! To top off your natural glow and glam up just a tiny bit, apply some mascara either in brown for lighter toned skin or in black for darker toned skin. Your result will be enhanced and naturally beautiful facial features!

JUARA GIVEAWAY!

Published on by

In Indonesia a high value is placed on soothing rituals and the process of healing and caring for the skin. Spa rituals last for hours and consist of soaks, rubs, compresses and herbal concoctions that are applied to the skin to soothe, tone, purify and rejuvenate. The spa treatment process is especially sacred, sensual, and spiritual, and relaxation is prized and encouraged. Unfortunately in the US we don’t have many spa days, but we do love to relax and that’s why we love JUARA. JUARA combines time-honored Indonesian recipes to promote skin health and well-being with the best in modern technology to deliver effective treatments of the highest quality. JUARA products offer a multi-sensory experience with their elegant formulas and luscious fragrances. By utilizing active botanicals such as rice, tamarind, turmeric, candlenut oil, healing teas and red sandalwood, JUARA brings a bit of the Bali spa experience home to us.

The Benefits of Ampoules

Published on by

Ampoules are underused skincare treatments in the industry. A lot of us have used them during a facial, but then forget about the lasting effects they can bring by using them at home. They can target our concerns, provide hydration, promote collagen, and help to restore our skin. Ampoules are stable, hygienic, and sealed until you are ready to use them.

Ampoules, or sometimes called fluids, can be beneficial for all skin types and concerns. They give our skin the necessary boost that it needs after traveling, post skin care procedure,  during dry winters, or after a long hot summer. The Babor skin care line carries fluids that help to boost collagen, calm and hydrate your skin, or provide your skin with essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. You can choose from their collagen booster, distressing fluid, or the multi active vitamin fluid.

Ampoules are also great for whitening teeth! Try GoSmile products and their whitening system ampoules. You can see a noticeable difference in the brightness of your teeth in a short amount of time with no trays or strips needed.

Ampoules are also used for hair to help restore, protect and keep healthy. If you hair needs a little attention and repair, try a hydrating oil treatment by Phyto to smooth out split ends and provide damage control.

The next time your beauty regimen needs a boost, reach for an ampoule to get you the results you are looking for!
