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!

NuFACE Mini nuface-giveawayis a petite, portable and powerful microcurrent facial toning device that’s FDA-cleared for facial stimulation.

Best Masques: Halloween Edition

Published on by

BOO! Happy All Hallows Eve! While your bunnies, ghosts, princesses and pirates are out trick-or-treating, treat yourself to a masque of your own, here are our favorite skin treats… no tricks involved:
Oily and acne-prone skin types benefit from a weekly purifying masque. Purifying masques help to minimize the appearance of large pores while drawing out impurities and excess sebum. A purifying masque is typically clay based and contains anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. We recommend Astara Blue Flame Purification Mask.
Everyone should exfoliate! An exfoliating masque will remove dead skin cells from your skin. Exfoliating masques provide brightening, purifying and tightening benefits. After exfoliating, treatment products will penetrate deeper into the skin. We suggest June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Mask.

Dull skin can benefit from a brightening masque. Brightening masques are infused with glow-getting antioxidant ingredients like berry extracts and vitamin C. We love Alchimie Forever Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask.

Dry skin loves a hydrating masque. Hydrating masques contain moisture-driving ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, essential oils, kernel oils and shea butter which soften the skin. Some of our faves are June Jacobs Age Defying Hydrating Masque and SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque.

Have a blast masquing! No costumes necessary!

Why Essential Oils Are So Essential

Published on by

Simply put, essential oils are like power boosters for the skin. They help the skin grow, flourish and maintain itself. Think of Marula Oilessential oils like a multivitamin for the hair, skin and body. Essential oils are finally getting the attention they deserve and aren’t just for the hippy dippy types. Much like the ingredients in our skincare, essential oils serve a purpose that makes them so vital to our overall health. Recently, oils derived from glamorous locations like Africa and South America are making headlines. Marula oil, derived from the Marula nut tree, was used widely by the Tsonga People of South Africa and Mozambique. Marula oil is packed with more omega acids & antioxidants than its predecessors, Argan or Grape Seed oil. Marula oil can be used on the skin to repair premature aging or on the hair to provide a smooth, frizz free appearance without a greasy finish.
