Hitting the slopes this season? Don’t forget that just because its winter doesn’t mean you can’t get sunburned! Wearing sunscreen is especially important while enjoying the snow because the UV rays are more intense at higher elevations. Also, be aware of certain body parts you might miss while lathering up. Be sure to cover any parts of your face that are exposed such as ears, around the eyes, the scalp and the back of the neck. Here are a few of our favorite winter SPF products:
Skinceuticals Physical Eye UV Defense SPF 50; SkinCeuticals recently brought out a revolutionary sunscreen specifically formulated for the eyes.
Colorescience Pro Sunforgettable Mineral Sun Protection Brush SPF 50 – Medium; If you aren’t keen on liquid sunscreens, Coloscience has an amazing powdered sunscreen that packs a whopping 50 SPF and is backed by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Neova DNA Damage Control Silc Sheer SPF 40 is a traditional liquid sunscreen but helps improve the visible signs of DNA skin damage caused by sun exposure. If you have oily skin, don’t fret. This formula is oil-free and is even water resistant for up to 80 minutes.
Have fun this winter! You can find the products mentioned on SkinStore.com.
Statistics show that 54% of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee or caffeinated beverages on a daily basis. Why not take your love of the sacred nectar one step further? Here are a few of our favorite caffeine packed, coffee derived products!
The Archipelago Botanicals Boticario collection is a rich blend of coffee beans, orange blossom and bergamot. The soap in this collection uses real coffee grounds to gently exfoliate the skin and give you a jolt to start the day.
The Skin Authority Coffee Almond Scrub smells like a rich dessert but isn’t all fluff. Skin Authority blends coffee, olive and crushed almonds to provide a powerful scrub that helps alleviate cellulite, shrink blood vessels that cause spider veins and tighten skin as well as hydrate the skin leaving it velvety soft.
The Juara Invigorating Coffee Scrub uses fresh Indonesian coffee beans to create a rich, cleansing scrub but differs from the rest because it also creates a gentle, creamy foam like a latte for the skin!
1. Drink more water!
It doesn’t need to be said but here’s an easy tip. Swap at least 1 cup of the morning coffee for a glass of ice water. Not only will it wake you up but it jump starts your metabolism, helps flush toxins & curbs morning hunger pangs.
2. Get more sleep…no really.
The correct amount of sleep will do wonders for your skin (no more dark circles!), your metabolism and your spirit! So put down that iPad and hit the pillow earlier than later.
3. Eat more fruits and veggies.
Your mother was right! If you’re not keen on the green stuff, keep a small bag of carrots to nosh on at your desk or if you’re super adventurous, throw a cup of kale disguised in a banana shake. It can make a world of difference! Proper nutrition not only helps your metabolism, but your skin and brain function as well. The skin is our biggest organ and it needs to be cared for.

Being hydrated is important to our overall health since our bodies are made up of approximately 75% water. When we get dehydrated our bodies have a way of telling us it’s time to drink up. One of the most obvious signs is that we get really thirsty and our mouths will start to feel dry. Our tongues might appear coated or swollen and we may develop bad breath. Since our bodies are lacking hydration we don’t produce enough saliva in our mouths to prevent overgrowth of bacteria. Our mouths will feel sticky and dry. When this happens it’s time to grab some water. You might also notice that you are using the restroom less often and when you do urinate it is concentrated and dark. A well hydrated person will have clear to slightly colored urine. This is a good way to find out if your baby or little one is getting dehydrated since they often will not be able to communicate the other symptoms they are experiencing. If they are having less wet diapers or their urine is darker start having them drink some fluids. Other signs that you are dehydrated are headache, loss of energy, dizziness and dry skin. To prevent becoming dehydrated you should drink 8-10 glasses of fluid a day and avoid alcohol consumption. When your body is hydrated your skin cells are full and plump. If your skin is feeling dehydrated we suggest SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. It’s amazing!

Last year I stumbled across the best lip product ever, Rodial Glam Stick. I wanted to take a moment to scream from a mountain top how much I LOVE this product (big hearts above my head) in love. Out of the hundreds of products we carry on our site I wanted to shine a spotlight on this perfect little gem. It is not like any other lipstick I have ever tried. It is creamy and hydrating and comes in the most gorgeous shades. It is so luxurious going on since it is enriched with Cocoa butter and Vitamin E. If my lips feel dry I reach for my Rodial Glam Stick over any chap stick I have. It is truly one of my favorite products of all time. You can find this product on SkinStore.com!
