In honor of April being National Earth Month, we wanted to celebrate our farm to jar ingredients and how they help our skin and help the environment! This week in the blog, we are going to be going through four of our favorite farm to jar ingredients, what they do for your skin, and what products you can find these ingredient in.

Aloe Vera
We couldn’t list our favorite farm to jar products without starting with Aloe Vera! Here at Aloette, we are proud to curate our own Aloeganic aloe vera to help deliver age-defying and skin-soothing results. Aloe vera is in a majority of our products such as Hydra-Cleansing Emulsion Daily Face Wash for Normal to Dry Skin and our bestselling Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel, and more!

Shea Butter
Another farm to jar ingredient we love is shea butter! Shea butter is great to help boost moisture on your skin and help soothe skin. This conditioning ingredient can be found in several of our moisturizer products as it helps to deeply quench thirsty, dehydrated skin. Shea butter is included in our Maximum Moisture Complex Complete Ultra Hydrant and our new Rest & Restore Comforting Lavender Body Crème to help give skin the ultimate moisture.

Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil is a fan-favorite skincare ingredient as it helps keeps skin moisturized with a lightweight consistency that gives skin a boost of hydration. The multiuse ingredient helps smooth the skin and lock in moisture to help prevent dryness. Coconut oil can be found in our Hand and Body Silk Lightweight Body Lotion to help soften the skin and our indulgent Aloe Kiss Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm to help moisturize lips.

Green Tea
Not only does green tea do great things for your body, but it also helps with your skin! We love the numerous benefits of green tea, such as helping to reduce excess oil production, soothe dry skin, and help boost hydration to the complexion. This skin-loving farm to jar ingredient can be found in our Coconut Milk & Turmeric Refreshing Body Mist and our Luminous Tint Prep & Primer Oil to help condition skin for a dewy-looking finish.

Olive Oil
While we know that olive oil is a useful ingredient in the kitchen, it can also be used on your skin! This multipurpose ingredient has numerous benefits, such as moisturizing dry skin and helping to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Olive oil can be found in several of our skincare products such as our Essential Cleansing Oil and Luminous Tint Prep & Primer Oil to help soothe and increase hydration to the skin.

Skincare Advice from Our Favorite Dermatologist

Share this:

When it comes to skincare, there are always new trends popping up and new discoveries happening daily. It can be difficult to keep up with what’s new and know the best things to do for your skin. To get some expert skincare advice, we consulted with New York based, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hadley King to answer our most popular skincare questions so we can use the best practices with our routines!

Face Polish flatlay mirror large swatch cream shadows 1080

Question: Should I Wash My Face Once or Twice A Day?

  • A common question regarding skincare is how many times a day we should be washing our face. We know it’s important to remove makeup before bed, but do we really need to be cleansing both morning and night? See what Dr. King says below:
  • “It’s most important to cleanse the face at the end of the day to remove makeup, pollution, dirt, debris. Whether or not you need to cleanse the face in the morning may depend on your skin and your night routine. If you sweat during the night, have residue from your night skincare routine, or if your skin is particularly oily and/or acne-prone, then cleansing in the morning may be helpful.”
  • If you choose to double cleanse, we recommend using our Face Polish Gentle Oatmeal Scrub to help exfoliate, hydrate, and rejuvenate the look of skin before going in with your regular facial cleanser.

EssentialCleansingOil FlatonNudeShadows 1080

Question: What are the Benefits of Double Cleansing?

  • Double cleansing is the process of cleansing your face two times, usually one with an oil based cleanser and one with a water based cleanser. This process helps to remove any leftover makeup so your skin is thoroughly cleansed. Let’s see what Dr. King says about double cleansing below:
  • “Oil based cleansers work on the principle of like dissolves like. They can also be the first step in a double cleansing regimen, with a water-based cleanser as the second step to avoid leaving an oily residue– this may be a good option for those with oily or acne-prone skin. Heavy makeup users also may prefer additional cleansing steps.”
  • If you have oily or acne-prone skin, we recommend double cleansing with our Essential Cleansing Oil to help remove makeup and impurities for cleaner, more refreshed-looking skin before cleansing with a cleanser such as Hydra-Cleansing Emulsion Daily Face Wash for Normal to Dry Skin if you are on the dryer side or Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser if you have more acne-prone skin.

OilControlTonerHandHeld

Question: Why Should I Use a Toner?

  • A toner is a step in your skincare routine that is usually done after your wash your face but before you apply any serums. But what does toner do? What are the benefits of using a toner? Let’s see what Dr. King has to say about toner below:
  • “Different toner ingredients can offer a host of benefits. If you have oily or acne-prone skin look for a toner with Salicylic Acid or other exfoliating acids. Salicylic Acid can penetrate into pores to remove oil. If you have dry skin look for toners with hydrating ingredients like Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Lecithin, Aloe Vera, and Rose Water.”
  • We recommend using our Balancing Tonic for Oily Skin to help deep clean pores of excess oil and impurities. Formulated with witch hazel, aloe vera, and amino acids, this toner is especially helpful for oily skin.

Question: What Is Skin PH Balance and How Does It Affect My Routine?

  • While the pH balance of skin sounds super scientific, it is essentially just the determining factor on if your skin is balanced or not. If your pH balance is off balance from too many harsh cleansers or treatments, it impacts your skins acid mantle, which is what helps protect your skin. But what does this mean? See what Dr. King says about the pH balance affecting your skin below:
  • “Studies have shown that increased facial skin pH is seen more often in people with acne than in people without acne. Therefore including measures that maintain the pH of the acid mantle could be helpful in the prevention and treatment of acne.”
  • We love using Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum to help balance our skins acid mantle. Infused with hydrating aloe vera and moisture-locking prebiotic and probiotic ingredients, this skin-loving serum helps reduce the look of uneven texture and encourages a healthier-looking microbiome.

Question: What is the Proper Order to Apply Skincare?

  • Applying your skincare in the right order is essential to help your products work the way they are supposed to. Let’s see what Dr. King has to say about what the correct order is to apply skincare so we can have the best results:
  • “In general, the idea is to go from the lightest products that are most absorbed, progressively to heavier products–so that means cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, makeup. Serums/active ingredients go on clean skin to maximize absorption. Occlusives, oils, and waxes block water loss and should be applied last because they help to lock in the previous steps.”
  • A skincare routine for dry skin, for example, with the correct order to apply would be:

Our Spring Beauty Essentials

Share this:

Now that Winter is finally over, it’s time to shift our focus to Spring! With Spring comes warmer temperatures and brighter days, which means it may be time to adjust our skincare routine from thick moisturizers and dark lipstick to light skincare and brighter colors. This week in the blog, we are going to be going through our favorite Spring essentials that are must-haves for this time of year!

Time for a Fresh Start

FacePolishSwatchesTanBackground

As Winter comes to a close, we are often left with dry skin remnants from the colder months. Give your skin a fresh start with Face Polish Gentle Oatmeal Scrub! This rejuvenating scrub helps deep clean pores by gently buffing away dead skin cells and impurities—all without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Formulated with aloe vera, shea butter, coconut shell powder, and oatmeal, Face Polish provides a deep exfoliation for a smoother, healthier-looking complexion.

Bright, Glowy-Looking Skin

GoldRushWithHandHolding

Switching out a dense, thick moisturizer for a lightweight crème to oil is going to help give your skin the moisture it needs without weighing down the skin. Gold Rush Crème To Oil Hydration Treatment delivers a rush of hydration to the skin as it helps to brighten and reduce the appearance of pores. Formulated with coconut oil and sunflower seed oil, Gold Rush helps add a natural-looking glow to the skin that is perfect for Spring!

Rosy Cheeks

Face Paint on Fabric

It’s hard to find something that screams Spring more that a pop of color on the lips and cheeks! We love using Face Paint Lip & Cheek Tint in shade Pink-A-Boo for the perfect rosy cheeks and lips. Face Paint is formulated with hydrating Jojoba Esthers and Vitamin E to help soften and condition the skin for a long-lasting dewy color.

Loooong Lashes

Timani Top Shelf Mascara BA with Line 1080x1080 1

For warmer weather, we love skipping heavy eye makeup and just using mascara to give the eyes some definition. Top Shelf Volume + Curl Mascara coats lashes from root to tip as it lifts and lengthens. Formulated with carnauba wax, this lightweight formula helps to prevent flaking and smudging for lashes that look longer and more lifted.

Hydrated Skin from Head to Toe

Rest Restore Lotion on tan macro 500

We can’t forget about hydrating our body during the Spring season! As the weather warms up, we don’t have to layer up in sweater and coats and our skin tends to be more exposed as a result. If you are still suffering from dry Winter skin, have no fear! Rest & Restore Comforting Lavender Body Crème deeply moisturizes the skin with aloe vera, shea butter, and hydrating lavender and eucalyptus oils for a radiant-looking glow just in time for Spring!

International Women’s Day is upon us, and while we definitely celebrate women year-round, March 8th presents an opportunity to highlight and recognize women and their accomplishments. This week in the blog, we are going to highlight some of our glamorous Aloette ladies to discuss what International Women’s Day means to them.

First Up, Crystal McNeer!

Crystal McNeer Headshot

For our first Aloette representative, we have Crystal McNeer. Crystal is a photographer, medical aesthetician, and Aloette beauty influencer based in Virginia. We love the passion and energy that Crystal has for Aloette!

Q: How does Aloette allow you to uplift and inspire other women?

“For over 20 years Aloette has allowed me to connect to other women on a very personal level. It’s more than skin deep, I love seeing a woman transform as their inner beauty radiates and changes the reflection they see in the mirror. It’s more than self-care or even confidence, it’s about authentically loving yourself and sharing your one-of-a-kind beauty with the world!”

Q: What Aloette product makes you feel most beautiful?

Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment is my nightly skin ritual! It erases the stress of the day while giving me a luxurious, nourishing aromatherapy spa experience right before I hit the pillow.”

What’s the best advice another woman has given you?

“Take quitting off the table!”

Next, Aline Lyra!

Aline

Next up we have Aline Lyra, a preschool teacher and Aloette ambassador based in Massachusetts. We love Aline’s energy and the positivity that she brings to Aloette!

Q: How does Aloette allow you to uplift and inspire other women?

“Aloette and its community have made a huge impact on how I care for myself and make it a part of my day-to-day life. Because of its positive impact, I have been able to share how Aloette fits into my busy life as a mother of three, a wife, a businesswoman and a full-time preschool teacher by allowing me to practice more self-care and feel more confident.”

“In this process, I had a few women personally reach out to me and say how inspired and impressed they were to see how I continued to make time to practice self-care and care for my skin. They have shared how they are now more motivated to take care of themselves. I am able to share how easy it can be to make self-care a part of my life and how it benefits me in so many ways with other women so they can see themselves sharing the same experience as me.”

Q: What Aloette product makes you feel most beautiful?

“It is hard narrowing down which products make me feel beautiful because there are so many! But the Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel helps me feel beautiful in my own natural skin. I love the instant gratification of feeling the dead skin cells leaving my skin and how smooth and glowing my skin is afterward. Whenever I use the Enzyme Peel, I like to leave my skin without makeup and embrace my natural beauty.”

Q: What’s the best advice another woman has given you?

“The best advice I have received from another woman is to be bold and not be afraid to share my story. For many years I have doubted myself and my beauty, but since finding this community within Aloette I am reminded that my story is worth sharing.”

Next Up: Misty Geffree!

Next on our International Women’s Day lineup we have Misty Geffree! Misty is a Direct to Corporate Manager at Aloette and is based out of South Dakota. We love Misty’s positive attitude and the energy that she brings to Aloette.

Q: How does Aloette allow you to uplift and inspire other women?

“Aloette is an amazing product but the beauty of it all is the relationships I have built! Just like this opportunity, I would have never expected something like this to happen to me, Aloette cares about everyone! I love that I can bring others to be loved by so many people and this amazing company.”

Q: What Aloette product makes you feel most beautiful?

“I love Renewal-A Defying Retinol Night Serum and the cosmetics. I have never been able to wear makeup until I found Aloette. The cosmetics are top quality and great for all sensitivities.”

Q: What’s the best advice another woman has given you?

“After every meeting, my friend always said to make the rest of the day the best of the day. I love that saying, it tells me to always thrive to improve yourself and your day!”

Next Up: Ashley Lamm!

Ashley Lamm Headshot

Q: How does Aloette allow you to uplift and inspire other women?

“Aloette allows me the opportunity to teach women about self-care. I believe that as women, we pour into the lives of others every minute of every day, many times leaving our own cups empty.  And we wonder why when we go to bed we are so exhausted, but can’t fall asleep and we get up the next day and do it all over again. Through the simple act of washing your face in the morning and at night, you tell yourself, “I matter!” You are taking those 2-3 minutes just for YOU! It’s small steps like this that help women start to realize just how much self-care can positively impact their everyday life.”

Q: What Aloette product makes you feel most beautiful?

“My skincare routine makes me feel the most beautiful and confident.  It all started with Enzyme Peel.  I was a lifelong sufferer of cystic acne.  I hid my face behind pounds of makeup.  I was embarrassed and ashamed. Enzyme Peel was the first product I tried that I could actually feel my skin start to BREATHE!  I realized the makeup wasn’t the fix, it was truly finding good, natural, products like ALOE that would help turn my skin around. “

Q: What’s the best advice another woman has given you?

“When it comes to making decisions, go with your gut. Don’t listen to your heart because it will encourage you to make a decision based on emotions. Don’t listen to your head because sometimes it can get lost in all the logistics. But your gut will never let you down!”

How to Help Protect Your Skin From Pollution Even While Using Makeup with Dr. Hadley King

Share this:

We hear about the damage that pollution can cause our planet, but have you ever thought about what pollution is doing to your skin? Pollution in the air, such as car emissions, particles floating in the air, and other environmental stressors, can cause some damage to your complexion—especially if you live in a big city. But have no fear! Protective products that help pollution-proof your skin is the perfect solution. This week in the blog, we have board certified dermatologist Dr. Hadley King telling us about ingredients that help protect our skin, as well as what products we should be reaching for.

Start Clean

City Detox flatlay on white with charcoal and swatch 1080

The first thing we can do to help protect our skin from pollution is to ensure we are cleansing our skin every day. City Detox Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser helps break down dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities for a complexion that is smoother and brighter-looking even after daily exposure to environmental stressors, such as pollutants. Simply mix City Detox with water to gently exfoliate skin.

“Pollution in the air exposes the skin to environmental stressors, which can damage the skin and contribute to skin aging. It is important to cleanse the skin regularly to help remove environmental pollutants” says New York based dermatologist Dr. King. “This cleanser is formulated with papain, an enzyme derived from papaya that gently exfoliates the skin, and charcoal to absorb oil and other impurities from the skin.”

Protect and Hydrate

Biodefense Two On Tray Cream Shadows 1080

You don’t have to compromise on hydration or pollution protection with BioDefense Environmental Protection Cloud Crème! This replenishing moisturizer helps to instantly hydrate and plump skin as it helps protect the skin from environmental stressors both morning and night. See what Dr. King has to say about BioDefense below:

“This hydrating gel is rich in humectants to plump the skin and emollients to support the skin barrier. BioDefense is also formulated with aloe, green algae, and dandelion extracts to offer antioxidant properties.”

Shield Your Skin

Be Picture Perfect Set Shield on crystal tray slate 3000@300dpi

Set your makeup and shield your skin with Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist! This lightweight spray helps protect skin from pollution and daily grime for a fresher and healthier-looking complexion. Simply mist your skin for a matte finish with skin protecting benefits.

“Antioxidants are key for protecting the skin from damage from free radicals that come from UV rays and pollution, says Dr. King. “Silica and charcoal powder help to absorb oil to provide a matte finish, while glycerin and aloe water help to hydrate the skin. Green tea leaf extract as well as other botanical extracts have antioxidant properties that help to protect the skin from damage from environmental stressors.”

An Extra Boost

Pollution Control Standing straight on tray and towel 1080

When you are wanting to give your skin an extra refresh, try Pollution Control Environmental Defense Charcoal Mask! This mask helps clarify and refine the look of skin as it draws out dirt, oil, and other impurities to deep clean skin and helps reduce the look of shine. Let’s see what Dr. King has to say about Pollution Control below:

“Great for oily, combination or congested skin. Lactic acid hydrates and gently exfoliates while charcoal and clay absorb excess sebum. Aloe hydrates and soothes and jojoba helps to support the skin barrier. Use 1-2 times per week.”

Your New Skincare Routine for Radiant-Looking Skin

Share this:

Lately, it seems like dewy, radiant-looking skin has been all the rage—and rightfully so! We have been loving seeing all of the glowy makeup looks, but the easiest way to achieve the lit-from-within look is with a good skincare routine! This week in the blog, we have put together a skincare routine that you can use both morning and night to help you achieve your radiant-looking skincare goals.

Step 1: Cleanse

Pure Radiance Cleanser Caps on side with soap standing 2000

For the first step of any good skincare routine is to cleanse the skin to help remove any dirt or daily impurities that may lead to clogged pores or blemishes. Our favorite cleanser to reach for when we want to have radiant-looking skin is Pure Radiance Revitalizing Cleanser. This cleanser can be used morning and night as it helps even out texture and tone for brighter-looking skin. Formulated with our lumitone complex and lactic acid, this cleanser gently exfoliates and cleanses the skin.

Step 2: Tone

After cleansing, we recommend applying a toner to help balance the skin. We suggest using Pure Radiance Bio-Active Mist to help firm the appearance of skin while also helping to even out skin tone and give a brighter-looking complexion. This alcohol-free toner is formulated with kombucha mushroom extract to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping to brighten the look of skin.

Step 3: Serum

Lush and Luxe Eyelash Serum Florabright Serum on Fabric 1080x1080 1

Our next step in our radiant-looking skincare routine is a serum! Our Florabright Advanced Brightening Serum helps improve the look of an uneven skin tone as it helps give a more radiance and refreshed-looking appearance. Formulated with daisy flower extract and Australian wildflowers, Florabright helps to improve hydration and rejuvenate the appearance of skin for the dewy-looking complexion you crave.

Step 4: Moisturizer

Correction Code on fabric tan 1080x1080 1

Last but not least, moisturizer! Moisturizing your skin is an essential step in ensuring that your skin stays hydrated and healthy-looking. We suggest using a different moisturizer during the day vs at night, as you need SPF protection during the day and extra hydration at night. We suggest the following two products to implement into your radiant-looking skincare routine:

  • Correction Code Daily Moisturizer Spf 25: A moisturizer with SPF 25 infuses the skin with vital hydration while helping to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with Matrixyl Synthe’6, Correction Code helps to firm and smooth the skin while also helping to protect the skin from UVA/UVB rays.
  • Advanced Night Recovery Pro Night Crème: An advanced night cream helps soften surface roughness for a revived radiance and a clearer, smoother-looking complexion. Formulated with revivaderm, this moisturizer helps to plump, smooth, and restore the look of skin.

How to Have Picture Perfect Skin

Share this:

In the world of social media and photo filters, it can feel overwhelming trying to figure out which beauty and skincare products you should be using to achieve the glowy, smooth-looking skin you see online. This week in the blog, we are going to be going through 5 different steps on which products you can use to help you achieve the hydrated, healthy-looking picture perfect skin you crave.

Step 1: Cleanse

Picture2

The first step to any makeup and skincare routine should always be to start with clean skin! We love our Gentle Foaming Cleanser because it gently removes excess oil and impurities while replenishing the skin’s natural moisture balance with skindulgent ingredients like green tea, chamomile extracts, and Aloeganic aloe vera. Simple massage the cleanser over face and rinse thoroughly for cleansed and soothed skin.

Step 2: Hydrate + SPF

Correction Code on fabric tan 1080x1080 1

The next step to our flawless skin prep routine is a good moisturizer! The Correction Code Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 is a great choice because it combines a moisturizer and a sunscreen in one product for moisture and sun protection in one. Formulated with an age-defying peptide, this daytime moisturizer helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while locking in hydration for softer, smoother-looking skin. Apply with fingertips onto skin to provide hydration with added sun protection.

Step 3: Prime

Applying a primer before your foundation will help your foundation last longer as it preps the skin. Our Luminous Tint Prep & Primer Oil is formulated with age-defying skin care ingredients and blurring micro-pearls to give skin a radiant-looking finish as it helps mask imperfections for picture-perfect skin.

**Pro Tip: Try adding a couple drops of Luminous Tint Prep & Primer Oil into your foundation to give your skin foundation a glowy-looking finish.

Step 4: Conceal & Cover

Next, it’s time for foundation! Using our Be Picture Perfect 12-Hour Demi-Matte Liquid Foundation, apply foundation directly on foundation brush and apply on skin until you have your desired coverage. This foundation is formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients to help conceal uneven texture and improve the skin’s appearance with each use. With natural-looking coverage and a demi-matte finish, this foundation is the perfect choice for picture perfect skin.

Step 5: Set It & Forget It

Ultra Finish Foundation Powder Set Shield Open Leaning on split cream tan 1080

The last step to our flawless-looking skin is applying a powder to lock in foundation! We love using our Translucent Veil Setting Powder to help conceal any imperfections and minimize the look of pores. With ingredients such as green tea and vitamin E, this powder creates a silky-matte transparent finish that helps set makeup while blurring the appearance of flaws.

Along with these hydrating ingredients, Rest and Restore Comforting Lavender Body Crème also includes niacinamide and shea butter to help condition and replenish moisture to the skin to help reveal a more radiant-looking complexion.

To use these new indulgent body products, begin with adding a generous amount of Rest & Restore Soothing Lavender Body Wash onto a moistened washcloth or loofah and massage onto damp skin before rinsing thoroughly.

You may reapply the crème throughout the day as needed to help keep skin hydrated.

How to Incorporate Rest & Restore Products Into Your Routine

To give yourself the ultimate self-care, try adding in Rest & Restore body care line products into your daily body care routine!

  • Proceed to cleanse and hydrate with Rest & Restore Soothing Body Wash and Rest & Restore Comforting Lavender Body Crème.
  • After moisturizing skin with the Body Crème, give yourself a spritz of Coconut Milk & Turmeric Refreshing Body Mist to indulge skin with a refreshing veil of hydration that locks in moisture and helps soothe the complexion for skin that is smoother to the touch.

Skincare 101: What Ingredients Do and How to Pair Them

Share this:

To start off the new year right, let’s take a step back and look at what ingredients we are mixing together—and what we probably shouldn’t be mixing together. When the right ingredients are combined, your skin will be more likely to reap the benefits of a smooth, healthy-looking complexion. On the other hand, when some ingredients are mixed skin can feel dry and flaky. This week in the blog, we are going to go over the do’s and don’t of skincare combinations so you can have the skin you want to start off the new year.

Do Mix:  Niacinamide + Retinol

Renewal A flatlay on top of swatch brown 1080 1

Mixing Niacinamide and Retinol together is a dream combo that can help you achieve smoother, plumper looking skin when used together over time. While retinol works to exfoliate skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, niacinamide works to help minimize enlarged pores and add moisture back into the skin. Both retinol and niacinamide balance each other out when applied to the skin, making this the ultimate dream team skin care duo.

Our recommendations for products with retinol and niacinamide are our Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum and Get Hydrated Oil-Free Moisturizer. Renewal-A encourages healthy skin renewal to visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer-looking appearance, while Get Hydrated helps to soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of redness, making it a combination for radiant, healthy-looking skin.

Do Mix: Vitamin C + Squalene

C The Light Group on Tan

Do you want glowy, hydrated, healthy-looking skin? Look no further—vitamin c and squalene are the perfect duo to help keep skin hydrated and brighter looking. While vitamin c is working to help brighten an uneven skin tone and soothe the skin, squalene is working to help restore suppleness to the skin while adding in hydration to help prevent moisture loss. When combined, these two skindulgent ingredients will help give you the dewy-looking skin you crave when used consistently over time.

Our recommendations for products with vitamin c and squalene are our C The Light Vitamin C Serum and Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment. C the Light helps to brighten, smooth, and even out the look of skin while Beauty Sleep helps soothe and replenish skin for firmer and softer-looking skin, making it a combination for glowy, dewy-looking skin.

Don’t Mix: Salicylic Acid + Vitamin C

AloPure Stay Pure Standing on split cream Plant Jar 1080

We love salicylic acid and vitamin C—just not together! Vitamin C is packed with antioxidants that can help reduce any dark spots on the skin and can help give a glowy-looking appearance. Salicylic acid is used to exfoliate dead skin cells in efforts to help

reveal fresh and healthy-looking skin. While it may seem like a good idea to combine these two ingredients, when mixed together they can throw off the skin’s pH level and result in dry, acne-prone skin. Instead, we suggest using a salicylic acid at night and vitamin C in the morning so you can have the benefits of both ingredients without causing any skincare problems.

Instead, try mixing Stay Pure Acne Treatment Lotion with Maximum Moisture Complex for a mix of salicylic acid and aloe vera that will help address blemishes while adding a dose of hydration to help avoid dryness.

Don’t Mix: Retinol + Salicylic Acid

Beauty Sleep on dark tray and lifestyle 1080x1080 1

If you are wanting to take your skincare routine up a notch and are wanting to try to address acne prone skin, retinol and salicylic acid are both great on their own… but not together! Both retinol and salicylic acid disrupt the skin barrier in order to unclog pores and exfoliate the skin. However, when mixed together, skin is getting double the exfoliation and can begin looking red, flaky, and possibly irritated. Take our word for it and do not try mixing these two powerhouse ingredients together for the sake of your skin!

Instead, try mixing Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum with Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment for a mix of retinol and squalene that will help your skin appear firmer, smoother and softer.

New Year = New Year’s Skincare Resolutions

Share this:

The New Year signals a fresh start and is a time to come up with resolutions for the upcoming seasons. While you may have resolutions such as working out regularly or getting consistent amounts of sleep, implementing new skincare habits can be great resolutions, as well! This week in the blog, we have Board-Certified dermatologist Dr. Hadley King sharing her opinions on which skincare resolutions we should implement this year.

Restorative Enzyme Peel with swatch on bottle 1080x1080 1

Resolution #1: Take Time for Skincare

When we are overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it can be hard to prioritize skincare. However, we are making it a resolution in the new year to take the time to practice self-care and give ourselves some TLC at least once a week. One way to practice this is with our Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel. This quick peel can be done in as little as 2 minutes and is filled with skincare benefits, as discussed by Dr. King below:

“Enzymes are a great choice for exfoliation for those with sensitive skin who cannot tolerate alpha and beta hydroxy acid. Most of the enzymes used in skincare come from fruits and vegetables, such as pineapple, papaya, and pumpkin. These enzymes help dead skin cells slough off, leaving the skin smoother and softer and decreasing discolorations. And they work quickly– the process takes only 60 seconds.”

Resolution #2: Start Using a Retinol

It is never too late to start incorporating a retinol into your skincare routine! Retinol encourages healthy skin renewal and can help reduce the signs of aging. Our Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum helps to instantly plump the look of skin and visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a firmer and brighter-looking appearance. See why Dr. King recommends using a Retinol below:

“Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that are very powerful and can produce significant changes in the skin. They increase the turnover of skin cells, increase collagen production, and decrease discoloration. Beyond sun protection, retinoids are the most proven topical option for anti-aging.”

Resolution #3: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Hydration can help combat signs of aging while conditioning the skin for a softer, smoother-looking complexion. Using a thick moisturizer such as Be Smooth All-in-One Balm can help increase skin firmness, help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce dry patches on the skin. Be Smooth is formulated with Moringa Oil, which is a favorite of Dr. King. See why she loves Moringa Oil below:

“Moringa oil is great for supporting the skin barrier, which seals in hydration and protects us from environmental stressors. This means that it is a good moisturizer and beneficial for dry and sensitive skin. Moringa oil is also similar to the oil naturally produced by our skin, which means that it can help to balance all skin types without being greasy.”

Resolution #4: Improve Your Skin Barrier

The microbiome was certainly a buzzy skincare trend this year, and we want to keep the trend going throughout 2023! Having a healthy skin barrier can help protect skin from environmental stressors while locking in hydration. Using a serum such as Beauty Biome Complex Serum helps balance the look of your complexion while boosting your skin’s barrier function to help reduce uneven skin texture and reveal brighter-looking skin. See what Dr. King has to say about the microbiome below:

“We are learning more about the important role that the microbiome plays in skin barrier function and conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema. The skin microbiome makes important contributions to the skin barrier; it also produces skin nutrients and essential skin lipids.”
