Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore: Building a Barrier

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2: Building a Barrier

I’ve been using SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic and Phyto+ serums for a while now, so when offered the opportunity to try their newly-launched Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 during a facial at Hiatus Spa in Texas, I was looking forward to seeing how the cream would boost the effects I’d been experiencing. My treatment was truly luxurious, starting off with a soothing foot soak (if only all facials came with head-to-toe pampering!).

Quick Ways to Pamper Yourself Before Bed

Quick Ways to Pamper Yourself Before Bed

Bedtime can be a stressful endeavor when you foresee yourself tossing and turning. Many nights I’ve found myself dead tired, but stress kept me from falling asleep; and it turned into a vicious cycle (especially when I ended up napping the next day as a result). There are, however, a few things I’ve found useful that Osmia Organics founder Sarah Villafranco has outlined for us below – even though some of them (like not checking email before bed) are way easier said than done! There’s something about a little pre-bedtime pampering that works to alleviate some of the day’s stress, and many of Villafranco’s tips take just a few seconds to put into practice!

How to Master an Ethereal and Bronzed Glow Even in the Winter

How to Master an Ethereal and Bronzed Glow Even in the Winter

If there’s one look that never gets old, it’s the healthy glow. Of course it’s best if that comes naturally, but it’s approaching the dead of winter and most of us are already pale as ghosts (I’ve been spending a great deal of time in Tel Aviv and without makeup, still look like a dead woman walking!). I swear by Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Enhancericon and Tom Ford Illuminating Primericon for enhancing my own complexion. If there are two products to splurge on consistently, these would be the two in my opinion, and I’ve found both to be universally flattering and effective. This natural beach beauty/soft ethereal glow look is always popular on the runways, and Spring 2016 was no exception, so I turned to Bluemercury district manager Emma Bruzzesi to get some more insight on how to elevate us all from “dead woman walking” status.

Eye Serums vs. Eye Creams: The Good, the Better, and the Best

With all of the skincare “must-haves” out there these days (and less time to fit them all into your beauty routines), it’s best to minimize the amount of product on your vanity and decide what works best for you. And that brings me to a question I’ve been asked a lot lately…

DNAEGF Renewal: What the Heck are DNA Repair Enzymes?

The new buzz words in beauty seem to be “DNA repair enzymes.” I’m not one to get caught up in science because when it comes to beauty products all the science is mostly just marketing jargon.

Phace Bioactive: Your pH Matters

Aside from feminine hygiene products and diet, you don’t hear too much talk about pH in beauty, but it’s a very important part and not all products are created with pH optimization in mind.

If you’ve used Hourglass’ primer you’ve probably been wondering why the heck, in all these years, they haven’t launched skincare.
