Winter Skin DoldrumsHas the dry, frigid winter weather left your skin parched and lackluster? There’s no need to fret, your skin is just in the need of some tender loving care! The buildup of dry, dead skin cells is caused by lack of exfoliation, which leads to dull, congested skin. June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque may be the solution to your skincare woes! This pumpkin masque utilizes active fruit enzymes to attack dead skin cells and impurities. Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants and vitamin A, which helps repair and protect your skin. A quick ten minute mask once to twice a week leaves your skin vibrant and silky smooth!

Winter Masks for your Skin Type

Published on by

Are you looking forFarmHouse Fresh Sundae Best a mask, but don’t want to feel stripped of your essential oils? Cream Masks are best suited for dry or dehydrated skin to reduce inflammation, redness or irritation. Look for masks with emollients like Shea, coconut or mango butter and nutrients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin E. Cream masks are also a great choice for sensitive skin and can be applied more often than traditional masks without irritating the skin. We suggest the FarmHouse Fresh Sundae Best Chocolate Softening Mask; two words: chocolate mask. This luxurious mask is a fine blend of cocoa, coconut milk and honey along with CoQ10, live Carrot Fruit Cells and Ginseng to fight wrinkles and sagging.

Have the holidays and winter weather caused you to break out? Clay Masks are the appropriate choice for oily skin types, congested skin or acneic skin. Clay masks help purify clogged pores and cleanse the skin while removing dirt, debris and excess oil. We suggest the CosMedix Clear mask which uses sulfur, broccoli powder and white hazel among other ingredients to combat breakouts and minimize pore size.GlamGlow YOUTHMUD

Are you feeling like you need a fresh start? Exfoliating Masks are great multitasking products and can save time during your skincare route by combining the cleansing effects of a clay mask and the exfoliating benefits of a scrub. We suggest the GlamGlow YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment which starts off as a traditional clay mask but when activated with water morphs into a light scrub.

Are you looking for a relaxing treatment in the comfort of your own home? Marine Masks are synonymous with the quintessential spa experience and can be used on almost any skin type. Marine minerals offer great skincare benefits without causing irritation. Most marine minerals are packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients and anti-aging benefits to give your skin the boost it needs. We suggest the Astara Activated Sea Mineral Mask which combines Kelp, Spirulina and sea vegetables to rejuvenate like a fine resort facial.

You can find these masks on SkinStore.com!



Quick Tips for a Holiday Glow!

Published on by

Want to look radiant and bright for upcoming holiday parties? Here are a few of our favorite ways to boost your radiance!

Add a few drops of this serum under your moisturizer and foundation and it will make you look like you are always standing in the perfect lighting. We love Orico London Transcend Marine Radiance Serum. It also deeply hydrates the skin and we all need that. Tighter skin and diminished wrinkles are also huge benefits. Orico London is brand new to SkinStore. Certified Organic ingredients and essential oils make this a winner for our naturalists.

An extra 10 minutes is all it takes to brighten dull skin, recover and nourish distressed skin, reduce redness and soften skin. Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask is a staple for any pre-event regimen. This staff favorite will not disappoint. You will get a more hydrated, glowing complexion in just 10 minutes. Now that’s what we call quality time!

So we all know that exfoliation helps get that top layer of dull, dead skin off revealing the younger, plumper skin cells right?! Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel /2 Steps is the fastest, easiest way to get holiday ready. If you haven’t “peeled” before, don’t let the word scare you. There won’t be any redness, flaking or down-time with these pre-soaked pads. Just swipe Step 1, the peel, over your face, leave on two minutes and swipe Step 2, the neutralizer, right over the top and viola! You are now ready for a mask and/or serum. These handy wipes are even safe for sensitive skin and those with rosacea. If you have more tolerant skin, they come in an Extra Strength formula as well. If you are using them for this first time, we recommend trying them a week ahead of a big event, just to make sure you have no reaction. You don’t want to be Rudolph at the holiday party!

In review, if you wanted to do all three of these steps, the correct order would be (after cleansing): 1) Peel or exfoliate, 2) Mask, 3) Serum followed with your favorite make-up. Heck, it’s the holidays use a little shimmer and make things bright!

Get the Look: BodyBuilder Waves

Published on by

By T3 Lead Stylist, David Lopez

This season is all about big, loose, voluminous waves that look natural and effortless, but still polished. T3 has created two new tools which I absolutely love, because they make creating this trending look fast and easy. The key to this style is waves that start lower down the hair section (at lip to chin level), which adds incredible body and movement to the bottom half of the hair. Here’s how to get the look:

Start by prepping hair with your favorite body building product (Mousse, Thickening Spray, Texturizing Spray), then rough dry hair until it is 100% dry.

Divide hair into four sections. Start with your part, divide hair all the way to the back and split into pig tails. Split those pig tails into two sections divided from the top right behind the ear.

Using the T3 Micro BodyWaver  wrap 1″ sections of hair flat along on the barrel, then gently unwind into a long coil. Pro Tip: Curl all hair with sections being fed over the barrel and towards the face, as pictured. This ensures perfect symmetrical waves on both sides.

After allowing coils to cool, gently rake through hair from roots to tips with a large comb or your fingers.  Detail the crown and hairline with the T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Wand using the 1” barrel attachment. Gently wrap 1/2″ sections away from the face to create more texture and polish.

Finally, spritz on your favorite texturizing spray.

You can find T3 products on SkinStore.com.
