We’re Giving Away Free Exuviance Detox Mud Treatments #SampleSaturday
5 Too Faced Glow Job Mask Dupes That Will Give You The Most Radiant Skin Of Your Life
Radiant and glowing skin is the beauty trend that’s not going anywhere anytime soon — it's the reason we continue to be obsessed with applying highlighter for a gorgeous glow. The skincare products we choose to use have as much to do with bringing on a serious glow and the latest buzz mask — Too Faced Glow Job Radiance-Boosting Glitter Face Mask (which retails for $42) — is one product that’s guaranteed to deliver seriously dewy skin. Infused with actual gold, this glittery peel-off mask doesn’t just make for swoon-worthy Instagram photos, it really works. After cleansing and toning, mix the mask and glitter with a spatula and apply it to clean skin for 30 minutes. Peel it off when it’s hardened and you’ll see a brand new complexion: one that’s smoother, more toned and boasts a natural glow. Too Faced glitter mask has caused such a sensation that, naturally, it is sold out practically everywhere and will probably continue to be for a few months. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on the glow-from-within complexion of your dreams. These five Too Faced Glow Job dupes provide similar results and won't break the bank. Miss Spa 24K Gold Créme Mask This creamy mask costs less than $10 but is a luxurious treatment rich with ingredients like peptides and pure 24K gold. Use it when your complexion feels more parched than usual and allow the cream to soak right into your skin and help with elasticity and hydration. Apply it in a thin layer, leave it on for 15 minutes, and rinse it off with warm water. Miss Spa 24K Gold Créme Mask, $6.99 Too Cool For School Pumpkin 24K Gold Sheet Mask Prefer mess-free and portable sheet masks to peel-off or rinse-off formulas? This affordable mask is infused with skin brightening 24K gold and pumpkin extracts and is designed to relive dullness, dryness, and rough texture. It's also perfect for all skin types — even sensitive skin — and its beta carotene content helps form a barrier on your skin, lock moisture within, and make you even more radiant. Too Cool For School Pumpkin 24K Gold Sheet Mask, $8 Shangpree Gold Premium Modeling Rubber Mask This Korean beauty rubber mask is fun and effective at hydrating skin. Mix it up in a bowl with a spatula, apply to your skin, and wait for it to form a thick rubber mask that you then peel off. In the interim, ingredients like gold, active collagen, essential oils, and botanical extracts work together to give your skin a vibrant, healthy, phenomenal glow. Shangpree Gold Premium Modeling Rubber Mask, $20 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask Yet another gold-drench sheet mask, this rose-gold beauty combines 24K gold, rosa damascena, and hydrogel for a soothing, cooling, utterly moisturizing treatment that brightens your complexion. You won't miss out on Instagram opportunities with this one, either — it shimmers while it works its magic on any and all skin types. 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask, $25 Oh K! Glowing Skin Gold Leaf Gel Mask This Korean beauty facial mask has a gel-like consistency that's perfect for dry, sensitive skin. It's made with gold dust and hydrogel and is worn for 30 minutes to create glowing, gorgeous skin. But here's the kicker: you don't have to rinse it off — after your treatment is complete, treat this mask like a serum and massage the residue into your skin. Oh K! Glowing Skin Gold Leaf Gel Mask, $9.50
This Is The One Body Lotion That Keeps My Skin Soft And Smooth During Winter (Bonus: It Smells Amazing!)

My skin is naturally quite dry, so the second I step out the shower I'm lathering down with the most creamy, rich lotion I can find. The one that's kept my skin soft and smooth for the last few weeks? The Super Soft Body Butter from Bath & Body Works. I know most people probably think of Bath & Body Works as a beauty destination with yummy scents, but don't sleep on their incredible formulas.

I'm still so (pleasantly) surprised that my skin is still soft and hydrated when I change into my PJs at night. I only reapply because I love the scents, not because my skin is actually dry. And speaking of the scents, Bath & Body Works made Super Soft Body Butter in loads of the classics. From Japanese Cherry Blossom to A Thousand Wishes, your skin will smell heavenly and remain moisturized all day long. My advice?

If You Want Your Skin To Look #Flawless All Day Long, You Need To Use This Setting Spray
If you're not using setting spray, you're doing it all wrong. Though it hardly gets the credit and recognition it deserves, setting spray is one of the most important steps in your makeup routine. Why? It not only helps to lock your products in place, but a good one will also keep your skin soft, smooth and radiant all day long. I've been using setting spray for years, but I recently tried Farmacy's Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist & Setting Spray and I can't get enough of it. It keeps my skin hydrated all day long without creating any oiliness. I have combination skin, so it's really nice to finally have a single product that I can use whether my skin is dry or oily that day. It also doesn't hurt that apply this spray is so simple and satisfying. You can apply a spritz or two before or after you moisturize and then again once you've done your makeup to ensure it stays put. My secret? I carry a bottle around with me all day with me, just in case I need a mid-day refresher. If you haven't been using a setting spray on the regular, this is the perfect one to start with. It's good for all skin types and will keep you skin moisturized all day long. Trust, you'll thank me later.

Once And For All, Here’s How To Prevent Winter Breakouts #SHEfindsSolutions
As the seasons change, so do your skin woes. And if you're still loyal to that same regimen that you followed during the summer months, it's probably time to switch it up, as the winter months can be extremely rough on your skin. 'Tis the season for winter breakouts! But you can avoid the usual pain, by adding a few of these simple methods to your daily routine to help stop the unwanted skin issues before they even start. 1.Use a good moisturizer. Winter weather is super harsh on skin, and as the temps are only going to drop from here, you have to make sure that your skin is moisturized more so during this time. Make sure you get a heavier moisturizer to apply in the mornings and before bed that'll keep your skin hydrated. 2.Change up your soap. Cold air may not be the only thing drying out your skin. A harsh soap could also be adding to your skin issues, so shop around for a more gentle cleanser that will give you a good clean without scrubbing away too much. 3.Drink plenty of water. Yes, you've heard this piece of advice over and over again, but you have to drink more water in order to keep yourself and your skin hydrated. Water helps to flush out toxins from the body that could be causing some of your breakouts, so make an effort to get in your daily amount. 4.You still need sunscreen. Just because summer is over that doesn't mean you don't have to worry about sun damage. (In fact, you need to be worried all year round!) But when you add frigid temps on top of sun exposure, you get more problems. Avoid those issues, and just do not leave your house without applying some sunscreen. 5.Invest in a humidifier. As you already know, the winter winds are rough. And if you're looking for a way to keep your dry, itchy skin moisturized, then think about getting a humidifier that will keep your skin hydrated. And the best part: all you have to do is turn it on and let it go! [Photo: Shutterstock]

Once And For All, Here’s The Easy Way To Get Rid Of Under Eye Circles #SHEfindsSolutions
One of the most common skincare problems is under eye circles. Ladies, we all get them at some point whether it's due to lack of sleep, stress, or sun damage. These unsightly bags remind us that the skin under our eyes is very sensitive and needs a little extra TLC form time to time. And if you're looking to get rid of these blemishes instead of just constantly covering them up with concealer, it's time to attempt some of these tried and true methods that'll help you get rid of the under eye circles fast. 1.Remember to keep hydrated. You've heard it a million times before: "Drink more water!" Well, those bags may be popping out because a high concentration of salt around the eye is causing you to retain water. Making sure to consume more water will help the body flush out salt, alcohol, and toxins that may be causing the droopiness. 2.Make sure you moisturize. As the temperatures get cooler, it's even more important to moisturize the skin, but don't neglect the under eyes. Pay a little extra attention to this problem area. You can use any number of hydrating creams to rub onto your eyes or add an oil treatment such as almond oil to your nighttime routine. 3.Try the old tea bag trick. Green and black tea can help get rid of those pesky circles, as the ingredients in them can help fight inflammation. For this trick, all you have to do is steep the tea bags as usual. Take out the bag, and let it cool for about half an hour in the refrigerator. (Enjoy a cup while you wait!) Then, place the bags over your eyes for a few minutes. Repeat the process once a week to make sure they stay gone. 4.Change you sleeping habits ASAP. Aside from getting more sleep, another thing that you can do is switch up your sleeping position, especially if you sleep on your side or stomach. Try sleeping on your back to get rid of bags, as other positions can constrict the blood vessels in the face as well as cause fluid to build up overnight. [Photo: Shutterstock]
Once And For All, This Is Why You Should Be Using Hyaluronic Acid
Even women with oily skin can experience redness and dryness in the winter. And as any dermatologist will tell you, dryness is among the worst skincare ailments because it can lead to so many other skin issues. That's why it's so important to keep yourself--and your skin--hydrated. But how do you actually combat dryness that leaves skin looking dull as you get older? Obviously, drinking lots of water can help, but hyaluronic acid can work wonders as well. If you're not familiar with this game-changing ingredient, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in the skin that diminishes with age. It also happens to be a super moisturizer; one gram of hyaluronic acid can help hold up to six liters of water! So you can imagine just how potent a serum formulated with hyaluronic acid can be. A single application can add serious moisture to the barriers of the skin. There are a lots of products on the market featuring this hydrating gem, but if you're looking for a formula to help revitalize your skin that works the Hyla3D HA Activating Complex from Jan Marini Skin Research is a must for your medicine cabinet. Not only is it designed to restore hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but it also has added peptides and antioxidants to give your skin further benefits. Investing in a good product featuring hyaluronic acid is an easy way to boost health your skin by applying a small amount to the face in the morning and evenings, so make sure to stock up ASAP!
3 Things Every Woman Should Do To Keep Her Skin Healthy During The Winter
The colder it gets, the harder it can become to keep your skin healthy and radiant. Sure, you may not be spending tons of time out in the sun like you did during the summer months, but that cold, dry winter air can be pretty brutal, too. Luckily, keeping your skin vibrant and nourished doesn't require revamping your entire skincare routine. Here are three simple things that you can start doing today that will keep your skin looking amazing throughout the cold weather months. 1. Drink more water. If you have trouble drinking the recommended amount of water each day (eight cups, FYI!), now is the time to break the habit. Staying hydrated is a great way to nourish the skin, as it'll help moisturize and flush out toxins. Even better, water is essential to a glowing complexion. 2. Use a more powerful moisturizer. In the cooler months, your skin can get extremely dry, especially on the sensitive areas on your face. To combat this, think about adding a serum to your skincare routine like Jan Marini Skin Research's Transformation Face Cream. It's formulated with anti-aging peptides and antioxidants, it's ultra hydrating and it'll keep skin smooth and silky despite the seasonal chill. 3. Wear sunscreen. While the temperatures may feel drastically lower, you still need to break out the sunscreen every single day. Sun damage is a common skincare issue that's easily solved by remembering to apply daily. A great tip: Pack a sunscreen in your bag so you can apply whenever you remember.
Your Winter Skincare Routine Isn’t Complete If You’re Skipping These Four Steps
Most women are super diligent about protecting their skin during the sunny summer months, but come cold weather? Some of us start to slack. We're telling you now, so consider yourself warned: take care of your skin in the winter! The chillier months are actually the time you should start doubling up on your skincare efforts, as the cold, dry weather can be unbelievably harsh on your skin. Ready to commit to an effective skincare regimen for the new season? Here are four essential steps you should never skip: 1. Invest in a quality skin corrector. Your face deserves it's own dedicated regimen and Jan Marini Skin Research's Marini Luminate Face Lotion ($98) is a great option for this time of year. It revitalizes skin that's still feeling the effects of too much sun, fights off hyper-pigmentation and reduces lines and wrinkles. Get this: it will also give your skin a youthful glow! 2. Always use sunscreen. This cannot be said enough: don't leave the home without sunscreen! It may seem like the sun's rays aren't as bad when the temps are lower, but they're just as damaging to your skin. Step it up, be diligent and put on SPF every day. 3. Use a mild facial cleanser. Your normal facial cleanser could be too strong, as your skin may not be getting the same level of hydration in the cold months. Look into substituting your regular cleanser for a milder one that won't dry out your skin as much. 4. Don't forget about your lips. The lips are a sensitive area that's commonly overlooked, but they can become chapped, cracked and flaky as the temps drop. Remember to moisturize them (often!) with a good lip balm.
This Is The One Product You Need To Add To Your Skincare Routine In Winter
As the seasons change, so should your skincare routine. Just think about it: all summer long your face has become accustomed to a specific regimen and an environment with tons of heat and humidity. Cooler fall and winter air not only tends to be a lot drier, but it also causes dead skin cells to accumulate faster. So the product you absolutely, positively need in your cold-weather skincare regimen? An exfoliator! Cleansing your face is great for getting rid of dirt and makeup, but truly ridding your skin of dead cells requires an exfoliator. This is the product that helps uncover the glowing, fresh complexion hidden within. As temperatures drop, step up your skincare routine by exfoliating once a week (two at the very most!). This will also helps the skin absorb the moisturizers needed to help replenish skin layers. With so many exfoliators out there, where should you turn? One of our favorites is the Marini Holiday Exfoliator ($90) from Jan Marini Skin Research. This limited-edition product includes physical and chemical agents such as proteolytic enzymes and glycolic acid to polish the skin leaving you with a silky, smooth finish. Bonus: The Marini Holiday Exfoliator features a festive sugar cookie scent that's as delectable as it is effective.

This Is The One Hand Cream You Absolutely, Positively Need For Winter…
As soon as the weather drops below 70, I'm one of those people perpetually wrapped in a scarf or blanket. The cold weather just doesn't agree with me and nothing suffers more than my hands. Between washing them multiple times each day and the dry air, my hands are need serious TLC the moment it stops feeling like summer. Luckily, I recently got to try Aveda's Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme and it was like the angels from heaven heard my cries. This hand cream is incredible. I keep a bottle on my desk and every time I wash my hands, then lather them down, I'm amazed by how quickly it absorbs. There's absolutely no greasy residue, but it does leave my hands super soft. What I love most, though, is that it doesn't have a super sweet scent like most hand lotions. Instead, the rosemary mint combo is nice, invigorating and subtle. I actually find myself applying it even when my hands aren't dry because I find the scent so refreshing. Bonus: The smaller size is perfect to keep in your handbag and it's only $9! Get one ASAP!

Weekend Project: Make Your Own Charcoal Face Mask
Who doesn't love a spa day? No one! And after a long week filled with work and other obligations, it's nice to step back, meditate, and get a little bit of pampering. So if you're looking to step up your self-care routine in a big way this weekend, try making your very own charcoal face mask. It's actually super easy! You only need to buy three ingredients to make a cleansing mask. What are they? Activated charcoal power, bentonite clay, and honey. Depending on the amount that you want to make, combine the same amount of activated charcoal and bentonite clay. Then add in equal parts water. Drop in some honey (try half the amount of the first two ingredients), and mix it all up. Voila! Your very own mask. But you don't have to stick to this mixture. There are tons of ways to get creative and alter your personal mask formula. Think about using aloe vera or apple cider vinegar in the mixture. You can also add in essential oils for scent and other nourishing benefits. Have fun! Be sure to check out how to make your own chemical free shampoo and how to make your own tinted lip balm.
The One Thing You Should Never Do To Your Hair Right Before You Go To Bed
You have already picked out and organized your shower haircare products so that you can get strong and healthy hair. But besides taming your hair both in and out of the shower, do you give much thought to how those products affect more than just your hair? You want to consider how these products affect not only the skin on your scalp, but also your skin elsewhere. This is especially important to consider if you're one that likes to take a shower right before you go to bed. If you're a nighttime bather then there are hair mistakes before bed you should avoid. You actually shouldn't use hair products on your wet hair before you go to bed because the products can cause acne when you hair rubs against your face. Dermatologist David A. Colbert, M.D., tells Teen Vogue that products may cause your skin to react in different ways. Acne caused by hair products happens when your pores get clogged with the ingredients and when your skin is inflamed by the product. "Gels, pomades, and hairsprays tend to be the most irritating," David says. It's important to remember that acne can be found on more places than just your face. Your haircare products may also affect places like your chest and back where your wet hair would naturally fall after you use product on it. So, it's definitely essential to think twice about using gooey hair products on your wet hair if you plan to shower right before heading to sleep. The American Academy of Dermatology further investigates what causes your hair products to make you breakout. According to the Academy, acne caused by hair products is so common that it has its own name for the condition-- acne cosmetica. The Academy further states that getting rid of this kind of acne is relatively easy, and it also notes that this acne can occur even if your skin isn't typically acne-prone. You should simply see your skin calm down once you stop using the products. If you don't, you should then consult with a dermatologist. Are you looking for even more pro tips? According to the Academy, you should always look for products that have one or all of the following phrases on the labels: Won’t clog pores Oil free Non-comedogenic Non-acnegenic You can help to prevent breakouts and still shower before bed by sleeping with your hair in a bun. There are plenty of reasons why you should sleep with your hair in a bun. Sleeping with a loose bun helps your hair to relatively stay in place, and doing so can prevents tangles and frizziness. You can also save your back and chest from acne if you choose to place your wet hair into a bun before going to sleep. Ideally though, you should add extra time to your morning routine and plan to shower once you wake up every day. Showering at night may be the culprit of any unwanted adult acne that you have. And let's be honest, nobody's got time for that. [Photos: Shutterstock]
Want To Wake Up With Seriously Stunning Skin? Use Alba 1913’s Galenic Leave-On Mask Before Bed

Of course, when I wake up in the morning, I 100% regret that decision. That's why I've become religious about using Alba 1913's Galenic Leave-On Mask. A quick rub down of this stuff before my head hits the pillow and I'm always amazed by how bright and luminous my skin looks the next morning.

If you've never heard of Alba 1913, you're in for a treat. It's the new beauty brand from Free People and there are so many incredible products.

Target Shoppers Are Obsessed With This $15 Mud Mask–I Am, Too
I never really got what all the hype about masking was about until I tried one. And like most women, I've been hooked ever since. I love a good peel off mask, but when it comes to mud masks, this one from SheaMoisture is my absolute fave. The consistency is divine. It goes on smooth and cool and almost immediately you can feel it penetrating your skin, sucking out the dirt and impurities. My Friday night ritual includes pizza, then slathering my face in this goodness while I veg out on TV. After just 10 minutes, my skin is softer and more radiant and it feels like all the stress of the week is washed away when I rinse the mask with warm water. Another reason I'm in love with this mask? I used to break out around "that time of the month" like clockwork. Then I tried using this more often the week before and during my period and what do you know? No more painful, red zits! Given my almost immediate obsession with this mask, I had to find out if I was the only person swooning. Turns out, I was late to the party. This mask has almost 2,000 good reviews on target.com. 2,000 people! If that's not enough to convince you to treat yourself, I don't know what it.

The Correct Order To Apply Your Skincare Products
It can seem like your cabinet is stocked with a surplus of unnecessary skincare products. But when you find out how your toner effortlessly paves the way for your vitamin C serum to make your skin its most radiant, you’ll be happy you invested more in skincare and less on shoes (seriously!). The order in which you apply your skincare products is as important as the products themselves. The simplest way to maximize the efficacy of cleansers, toners, serums, moisturizers, eye creams, and sunscreen lotions is to follow a few simple steps when applying them each day. The same way you’d never put icing on cookie dough without baking it first, you shouldn’t even think of moisturizing or layering on SPF until you’ve mastered the steps that come before it. Here is the correct order to apply your skincare products. 1) Cleanser Your healthiest skin begins with clear, clean pores that are free of makeup and sebum, which clogs pores and leads to pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Use a gentle oil-based cleanser to remove all traces of makeup (the oil is a magnet for excess oil on your skin and, contrary to what you may have been told, won’t make oily skin more greasy). This is a great time to break out exfoliating cleansers, especially if you suffer from dry, flaky skin. If you want, you can follow an oil cleanser with a water-based cleanser (otherwise known as the K-beauty double cleanse treatment) to give skin a thorough cleansing, but if you feel this isn’t necessary, skip to step number two. 2) Toner If your cleanser takes away even a hint of hydration from your face, toner can be used to balance your skin’s natural oils and give it right back. A soothing, gentle toner made with ingredients like aloe vera can reduce redness in the skin, make pores appear tighter and more refined, and set the canvas (your lovely skin) for serums to penetrate deeper. Apply toner to a cotton square or spritz it right onto your skin. 3) Serum Most serums are made with small molecules that penetrate deep into the skin and can deliver highly effective ingredients like vitamin C, which destroys free radicals and brightens your complexion, wrinkle-fighting retinol (which should only be used at night), ceramides to strengthen your skin’s natural barrier and soften skin, and a load of other antioxidants. Apply a few drops, which go a long way, after your skin absorbs the toner. If you need to add a pimple fighting product to your routine, apply it before serum and allow it to dry first. 4) Eye Cream With regular use, an eye cream that contains ingredients like niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, caffeine, and peptides can smoothen the delicate skin around your eyes, prevent crow’s feet, and even make those dark circles lighter. Using your ring finger, apply cream to the outer corners of your eye and dab lightly. Let it absorb fully before applying moisturizer. 5) Moisturizer Regardless of your skin type, your complexion will benefit from moisturizer. A moisturizer for dry skin may contain ingredients like exfoliating lactic acid and hyaluronic acid and ceramides that lock in moisture. An example of an effective oily skin moisturizer is a lightweight gel that contains dimethicone to absorb oil and make skin look matte. No matter what your skin type, find a moisturizer that works for you and commit to using it every day for healthier skin. 6) Sunscreen Rain or shine, sunscreen is probably the single most important skincare product you can use. Apply a layer of SPF 30 or higher at the tail end of your routine and wait at least 15 to 20 minutes before going outside.
The Best Kiehl’s Moisturizer Dupes You Need To Try For Gorgeous Skin
For years, one brand of moisturizer has been regarded by those of us who suffer from extremely dry skin as a lifesaver: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. This bestselling, classic moisturizer is everything to everyone — whether you have dry, oily, normal, combination, or sensitive skin, this brand keeps your skin hydrated and protected from the elements for 24 hours. It’s number one function is as a luxurious cream that absorbs rapidly, but leaves even the driest skin types flake-free and soft as silk. Kiehl’s is so special it even earned the distinction of being the facial cream used by six explorers who completed the first-ever ascent of Greenland’s crazy-cold peaks in 2005. Needless to say, it isn’t easy to find another moisturizer that can compete with Kiehl's rich formula, which includes desert plant extracts and squalane, which restores your skin’s natural moisture barrier. But there are some pretty great moisturizers out there that offer amazing protection to very dry skin types. Here are 4 Kiehl’s moisturizer dupes you need to keep on your radar. 1) First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer Made with soothing colloidal oatmeal and shea butter and especially ideal for sensitive, reactive skin types, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer is the product that can instantly banish dry skin flakes from your life and calm inflammation. Its other star ingredients include ceramide 3, which locks in moisture for the smoothest skin imaginable, and a blend of antioxidants that improve your skin’s texture and help brighten your complexion. In clinical studies, this cream was actually proven to increase hydration by 169 percent immediately after applying it — if that isn’t enough of a reason to give it a whirl, consider this: it can even help relieve itch and discomfort from eczema. 2) Amarte Aqua Lotion It can tricky to find a lotion that eliminates dry patches in oily and normal skin types — most creams are a little too rich and can clog pores and cause pimples and blackheads. But Amarte Aqua Lotion is that perfectly rare combination of light and just soothing enough to relieve occasional bouts of dryness in otherwise oily skin. Its key ingredients include purified nano-sulfur, which purifies and soothes (but also helps heal acne), allantoiin to soothe skin, and brightening arbutin. Its impressive list of flower extracts and essential oils is nothing to laugh at, either. 3) Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream One of the best things about many Korean beauty products like Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream is that they offer incredible bang for the buck and often contain revolutionary ingredients that are especially gentle on sensitive skin types. This cream, which is ideal for all skin types, considers ceramides its secret weapon and these molecules support your skin’s barrier with time-release moisture that lasts up to 26 hours. This cream also has licorice root extract and aloe vera to relieve redness and irritation. 4) Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer SPF 15 Sensitive Skin When your skin requires a dose of moisture and sunscreen for daytime protection, you needn’t sacrifice one for the other. Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer with SPF 15 is ideal for sensitive skin because it’s made with zinc oxide, aloe vera, and vitamin E. It’s also free of fragrance, oil, and PABAs and delivers a satisfying moisture barrier that never feels greasy or sticky.
Weekend Project: How To Make Your Own Tinted Lip Balm
How many times have you purchased a super gorgeous lipstick, only to realize you probably will never wear it? I know that this happens to me all the time. Instead of letting it sit and collect dust or tossing it in the trash, there is another use for it! You ready for this? Turn it into a tinted lip balm! The color will be toned down a notch and your lips will be kissable as ever. Making your own tinted lip balm is surprisingly easy. Just take the lipstick you're going to use for the project, Vaseline (or any type of petroleum jelly) and coconut oil. Mix these ingredients together in any ratio you'd like. Color too light? Add a little more lipstick? Color still too bold? Add some more Vaseline. Super easy, right? And you just saved yourself the hassle of throwing a lipstick (and cash!) in the garbage. Be sure to check out DIY split-end repair and make your own texturizing sea salt spray.
Bad Skincare Habits You Need To Break In Your 30s
You’re never too old to break a bad habit — especially if you’ve acquired a few bad skincare habits that need to be dealt with ASAP. Your 30s is the perfect time to reevaluate your skincare routine, identify problems that could be contributing to acne, skin lines, or pigmentation issues, and tackle them. There’s a solid chance all you’ll require is a few minor tweaks and adjustments, a bit more sunscreen, and a bit less time obsessing over zits or watching late night TV (because sleep is everything). These six bad skincare habits are more common than you probably think. We make some of them without even realizing the effect they can have on our skin. But there’s good news: most are reversible. Squash those bad habits now and your skin will benefit for years to come. You Sunbathe There was a time, not long ago, when health and wealth were associated with glowing skin you could only get from hours of sunbathing. Of course, we’re now very well aware of how UVA and UVB rays are harmful to our skin and health and can cause premature aging. If you consider yourself a sun worshipper, be sure to invest in a separate facial sunscreen with broad-spectrum UV 50 protection. Wear a hat. And try to avoid lounging in direct sunlight between the hours of 10am and 2pm. You Forget To Wear Sunglasses When you were a teen, sunglasses were a fashion statement and little more. They’re still a fun accessory that can change up your style, but they’re also crucial to wear to protect your eyes from damaging UV rays. Wearing sunglasses that are marked 100 percent UV protection is one of the best steps you can take (along with finding a great retinol eye cream) to prevent crow’s feet. You Fall Asleep Without Washing Your Face You’ve had another late night out, your makeup looked amazing, and now you’re way too tired to wash it all off. Taking a few minutes to properly remove foundation, powder, concealer, and even lipstick with a oil-based cleanser will keep your pores from getting clogged and can prevent pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads from forming — even from stubborn places like around your lips. If washing your face is a total hassle, keep cleansing wipes on a nightstand for a fast, water-free cleanse before bed. You Use Abrasive Exfoliants After being told how important it is to exfoliate in order to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, a lot of us did just that — and then we overdid it or used products that aren’t doing our skin any favors. Some of the more abrasive physical exfoliants that contain large grains, salt particles, or involve scrubbing with tough brushes, can aggravate sensitive or even regular skin types. They can even cause tiny tears in delicate skin and result in increased breakouts. Stick with gentler chemical exfoliators with BHA and AHA acids, such as glycolic and lactic acids. You Aren’t Getting Enough Sleep As if you needed another reason to get Netflix: it helps you get in your zzz’s when you need them so that you can watch your favorite shows without losing sleep. Getting enough sleep is so important to great skin — sleep deprivation can actually stunt collagen formation, which helps keep your skin looking tight and youthful. Make it a point to get 6-8 hours every night — if you can learn to sleep on your back to avoid wrinkles, even better. You Pick At Zits There are far too many amazing zit products on the market these days to resort back to the old days of playing DIY dermatologist in your bathroom. Picking your pimples can spread bacteria and cause more zits. Apply a product like Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and let the blend of salicylic acid and calamine work its zit-zapping magic while you sleep.

Once And For All, This Is The Best Face Oil For Brighter Skin
Until 2017, if you had asked me to voluntarily slather my skin with oil, I would have laughed in your face. After all, it had practically been ingrained in my head since my teenage years that oil was your face's enemy, and a one-way ticket to breakout city. However, after becoming more involved in the skincare world, I've quickly come to learn that face oils are no joke. Even still, I'm always a little apprehensive when trying a new product. And when I began my relationship with face oils in particular, I wanted to take things slow. So I gave it a try with an all-natural product: Tata Harper's Beautifying Face Oil. My skin is on the dry side, so I tend to lather on the moisturizers, which often makes my face feel heavy and greasy instead of dewy. But with one pump of this oil, my face feels moisturized and replenished. Less product and more results—could you ask for more? Every morning, after washing and toning, I massage one pump of the Beautifying Face Oil onto my skin before moisturizing and putting on makeup. And after four weeks of this regimen, my skin is in the best shape it's been in years. It looks brighter, more even, and, well...beautified. Ringing in at about $70 for one fluid ounce, it isn't the most affordable option on the market. But if you're looking for a go-to, trustworthy skin-saver, or are new to face oils, you can rely on this product. And the confidence boost of seeing my skin glowing without a drop of makeup is worth every penny. [Photo: Shelby Rodriguez]
I Tried A Cleansing Balm For The First Time And This Is What Happened
I'm one of those old-school beauty lovers that's yet to experience a facial cleanser that isn't a gel, liquid or foam. Crazy, right?! That all changed, however, when I got my hands on Elemis' cult cleansing balm. Now if you've never tried a cleansing balm, it's definitely a new experience. The formula is totally different from other cleansers--in a good way. Unlike traditional cleansers, you apply this cleansing balm to dry skin. The formula is creamy, so it dissolves makeup and dirt from your face as you massage it onto your skin. Once you've covered the entire surface of your face, you simply wipe away the balm--and all the yuckiness it dissolved!--with a warm, damp cloth. (Bonus: The balm actually comes with its own luxe cloth!) Within minutes your skin will feel clean, smooth, nourished and renewed. I love how glowy my skin looks after using this. No wonder it is an award winning product. Ready to switch up your cleansing routine? Treat yourself to Elemis' Cleansing Balm stat!
