With the season of falling leaves and cool weather upon us, it’s time to shift our makeup from bright Summer hues to warm Fall smoky eyes. Changing your eyeshadow looks with the season is a fun way to get into the spirit of Fall while also staying up to date with beauty trends. For this look, we are going to be highlighting how to incorporate our new On The Line Defining Waterproof Pencil for a smoky, Fall Inspired eye look. Keep reading for our recommendations and simple steps on how to achieve an eye look that is ready for Fall!

Stay Golden

To create a soft, warm, and dimensional look this Fall, grab the Golden Hour Luxe Eye and Cheek Beauty Palette! This palette contains 8 neutral, matte, and shimmer eyeshadow hues, as well as a blush and bronzer. This all-in-one palette will help you create a look that is truly magical! We suggest the following application to create a warm smoky eye look with three eyeshadow shades from the Golden Hour Palette:

  • First, go in with shade Lure (a soft, light pink) all over the lid and up to the brow bone with a blending brush.
  • Next, apply and blend shade Eventide (a warm terra cotta burnt orange) onto the lid and crease of the eye. This color will serve as a base for a smoky eye.
  • Now time for some shimmer! Use shade Twilight (a shimmery mauve) all over the lid, using a flat blending brush to gently pat the shimmer onto the lid.

*Aloette Pro Tip: Spray your brush with Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist to get more pigment and shimmer before applying the shadow.

Give ‘Em Some Smoke with *NEW* On The Line Defining Waterproof Pencil

To help keep our eyeshadow look going, we need to add some smudgy, smoky eyeliner. Our *new* On The Line Defining Waterproof Pencil in shade Chocolate is perfect to add some depth to this look! This waterproof eye pencil shade glides smoothly on the eye with precision without tugging. This dimensional liner is great for smoky eyes as well as day-to-day looks. Available in shades black, chocolate, and platinum, there is a shade for every versatile eye makeup look. To apply On The Line Defining Waterproof Pencil for a Fall inspired smoky eye, complete the following steps:

  • Draw a precise line on the lash line directly with On The Line Pencil in shade Chocolate (a deep brown) from the inner corner of your lash while working your way over to the outer edge.
  • Once the liner is on the lid, take a small blending brush and smudge the chocolate shade along the lash line to get a smoky effect.

May the Wings of Your Eyeliner Always Be Even…

Let’s wing it! Rather it be a small gentle wing or a fierce wing that means business, adding a wing can add some glamour to any eyeshadow look. To achieve a wing yourself, we recommend using our Total Precision Liquid Eyeliner in shade Black to get a smooth, sharp line. Use the following steps as a guide on how to give yourself a winged eyeliner look:

  • Using Total Precision Liquid Liner, draw a thin line directly on the lash line starting on the inner corner of the eye and moving to the outer edge. This line should be as close to the lash line as possible and should not be as thick as the On The Chocolate smudgy eyeshadow shade we previously applied.
  • Once we have our thin line on the eye, it’s time for the wing! This wing can be as small or as large as you like—depending on how much drama you want in the look. Draw a line from the outer edge of the eye in a diagonal line slightly inclining upwards until your wing is your desired length.

No Reason to Lash Out!

Mascara is the finishing touch to any eyeshadow look. Top Shelf Volume + Curl Mascara creates maximum volume and long-wear curl with a uniquely curved brush to separate and life lashes. Get bold and defined lashes by using the following steps as a guide.

  • Position the wand horizontally at the base of top lashes and apply in a zig-zag motion from the base to the tip. Use the tip of the brush on the hardest to reach lashes.
  • Repeat the following steps on the bottom lashes.
  • Reapply as desired until you achieve your desired volume and curl.

And voila! A Fall inspired eye makeup look featuring our new On The Line Defining Waterproof Pencil that is ready for all of the cool weather festivities. To learn more about our new On The Line Defining Waterproof Pencil, as well as other b

Halloween Inspired Spooky Makeup Looks

Share this:

Halloween is quickly approaching, and if you find yourself panicking because you have no idea on what to dress up as, you’ve come to the right place. This week in the blog, we are going to be going through three different makeup tutorials that are inspired by various Halloween-inspired looks. If you want to know how to use your makeup as a costume this year, keep on reading!

Screenshot 2022 11 01 142806

Feeling Feline

For our first Halloween look, we have this super fun Cheetah-inspired makeup! If you are interested in recreating this Cheetah look, use the following steps as a guide:

  1. Using our Golden Hour Luxe Eye and Cheek Beauty Palette and a small, dense, pointed brush, use the shade “Enchant” and draw four to eight circles/ovals on the right side of the face. Do not color in these circles/ovals. Be sure to have different-looking shapes as these outlines will mimic the spots on a Cheetah.
  2. Next, using the same palette, use the bronzer shade “Afterglow” to color in your various circles and ovals.
  3. To create the nose and mouth, use a Waterproof Mechanical Eye Definer Pencil in shade Black to color in the top of the nose along with the nostrils.
  4. Next, with the same Eye Definer Pencil, draw a line from the bottom of the nose to the top of the lip. Color in the top of the top lip and add dots around the upper lip area between the nose and the top lop to mimic whiskers.
  5. A Cheetah-inspired makeup look would not be complete without a classic cat eye! Use Total Precision Liquid Eyeliner in shade Black to draw an exaggerated wing liner, starting at the inner corner of the eye and brushing out to the outer corner.
  6. For our final step, spray with Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist all over the face to help your feline look last all night long!

Re-Vamp Your Look

Picture3

For our second spooky Halloween look, we have this creepy vampire-inspired makeup look! To learn how to recreate this look, follow the steps below:

  1. First, we are going to start with the smoky eye. Take Eyesilk Eyeshadow in shade Black Onyx and apply all over the lid with a small blending brush. The entire eyelid should be covered in black. Be careful not to apply the black above the crease of the eyelid.
  2. Next, with the shade Coco Couture from the same Eyesilk collection, apply this deep brown hue with a fluffy blending eyeshadow brush throughout the crease to blend out any harsh lines from the black shadow.
  3. Repeat the same steps on the lower lash line, starting with Black Onyx closest to the lower lash line and blending the color out with Coco Couture.
  4. Next, using shade Sangria from the Eyesilk Eyeshadow collection, draw zig-zagged lines coming from the bottom of the lower lash line with a very small, angled eyeshadow brush. Blend out the zig zags so they are not super vibrant, as seen in the photo above.
  5. For the lips, we are going to apply a Lip Color in shade Red Carpet on the lips. Once lips are coated, draw two vertical lines down from both corners of the lips. Try to draw the lines a little curved to mimic the way blood would naturally drop.
  6. For our final step, spray with Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist all over the face to help your Halloween look not “vam-ish” throughout the night!

Super Cute Scarecrow

Picture2

For our final Halloween-inspired makeup look, we have this rosy and vibrant scarecrow! If you are interested in copying this makeup for Halloween, follow the steps below.

  1. Starting with the eyes, go in with Eyesilk Eyeshadow in shade Rose all over the eyelid with a small blending brush. Make sure this eyeshadow color does not go above the crease of the eye!
  2. Next, use Eyesilk in shade Fame to blend out Rose from step 1. Blend this color all over the crease upwards towards the brow bone.
  3. For the face, use Face Paint Lip & Cheek Tint in shade Tuscan on the apples of the cheek and on the tip of the nose. Try not to blend out this color too much, we want the color to be bright and vibrant.
  4. Next, using Total Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Black, draw a sharp and thick cat-eye eyeliner starting from the inner corner and flicking out to the edge of the eye.
  5. With the same eyeliner, outline a triangle on the nose and two lines curving upwards, one on each side of the mouth.
  6. Using Eyesilk in shade Black Onyx, carefully apply this color onto lips in a patting motion.
  7. Going back to your lines from step 4, apply small lines with the same eyeliner around the exterior of the outline of the nose and small “X”’s on the curved lines around and on the mouth, as seen in the photo above.
  8. For our final step, spray with Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist all over the face to help keep your scarecrow look set all night long!

Help Take Care of Yourself with Aloette

Beauty Biome Beauty Sleep Restorative Enzyme Lifestyle Fall flatlay
Share this:

October is National Emotional Wellness Month! To celebrate, this week in the blog we are going to take a pause on our favorite makeup looks and focus on how to help take care of ourselves. Emotional Wellness teaches us how to adapt to life’s stresses and how to adapt to change and difficult times. Learning strategies on how to take care of your emotional wellness can only benefit you in the future, which is why this week in the blog we are going through our four favorite tips on how to improve your emotional wellness.

Sweet Dreams!

Something that is easy to overlook and ignore is getting enough sleep per night. According to various sleep studies, it is recommended that adults sleep between seven and nine hours a night. While this may be easier said than done, taking time to take care of yourself and get enough sleep will make you more productive the following day. Not to mention, sleep is good for beauty rest! Try putting on Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment to soothe and help replenish skin with vital moisture and ingredients while you sleep. Getting enough sleep *and* waking up with softer-looking skin sounds like a win-win to us!

Take A Pause

Life can be chaotic for us all. It is important to take a pause and a deeeep breath to help center yourself and take a minute for some me-time. One of our favorite ways to do this is with a face mask, particularly our Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel. This non-invasive 60-second miracle peel gently smooths and exfoliates with zero downtime. Taking a few minutes out of your day to help give yourself a healthy-hydrated glow is something to try to incorporate a few times a week.

Spend Time Outside

Getting out of the office building or stepping outside of your home daily to get some sun is extremely beneficial to our health! Sunlight is essential for health and wellbeing, making it extra important during Emotional Wellness Month. With the weather getting cooler out, spending even 15 minutes outside a day can help improve mood. But don’t forget sunscreen to help protect your skin! Our skin is the largest organ on our body, and we need to make sure that our skin is healthy and hydrated. Using SPF is an easy way to do this and is a good habit to get into. Our Correction Code Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 locks in hydration helps enhance skin’s natural moisture factor while protecting the skin from harmful UV rays.

Practice Mindfulness

The last emotional wellness tip we have to discuss is mindfulness. Mindfulness means to be aware of the present moment and *trying* not getting swept up in any stress or anxiety. One way we like to practice mindfulness is to slow down when you can, whether that be waking up a little earlier to have a slower morning or setting time aside for yourself at night. Taking time to check in with yourself is beneficial for your mental health. A time when we like to do this is when we do our nightly skincare routine. As you apply your Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum after washing and toning your face, take time to reflect on your day as Beauty Biome works to help reduce the look of uneven texture.

Happy National Witch Hazel Day!

Share this:

Happy National Witch Hazel Day! Witch hazel has been around for centuries and has endless uses varying from cleaning to skincare and everything in between. This week in the blog, we have our favorite award-winning, New York Based Dermatologist Dr. Hadley King to explain how witch hazel works in skincare and why it should be incorporated into our routines.

What Is Witch hazel?

Let’s start with the basics. What is witch hazel and what does it do? Witch hazel is derived from a flowering plant called genus hamamelis and is made from the leaves and bark of the plant. We asked Dr. King about the ins and outs of witch hazel. See what she said about this versatile ingredient below:

“Witch hazel is a natural astringent, so it is often used to help remove excess sebum and temporarily decrease the appearance of pores. It also has antioxidant properties and can be soothing to the skin. Witch hazel can be drying to the skin if overused, so be cautious to not over-apply.”

Which Products From Aloette are Formulated with Witch hazel?

Since we learned what witch hazel is used for and what it does for the skin, lets learn about how witch hazel is incorporated into some of our skincare products. Dr Hadley King says to “look for formulations that combine witch hazel with ingredients that moisturize and support the skin barrier” so let’s look into some skincare products with this powerhouse ingredient.

Picture1

  • Florabright Advanced Brightening Serum

This Advanced Floral Brightening Serum helps to improve the look of uneven skin tone, fade the appearance of discoloration and help jumpstart a better-looking complexion with a powerful blend of Farm to Jar™ extracts. Florabright helps to rejuvenate the skin’s natural renewal properties for a more radiant and refreshed-looking complexion. See what Dr. King has to say about the ingredients in Florabright:

“This brightening serum contains tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a more stable and oil-soluble form of vitamin C.  Studies have suggested that the fatty acid component of THD ascorbate may allow better penetration into the skin. Gluconolactone, a polyhydroxy acid, helps to gently exfoliates the skin, increasing the brightening effect. And witch hazel provides antioxidant properties.”

  • Be Balanced Daily Refining Tonic

Picture2

Be Balanced Daily Refining Tonic helps soothe problem-prone skin with vitamin B and salicylic acid, while lactic acid and witch hazel help remove pore-clogging impurities. Be Balanced also helps to gently soothe the skin with Aloeganic® aloe vera and peppermint oil. See why Dr. King thinks witch hazel is a beneficial ingredient in Be Balanced below:

“This gentle, skin-calming toner great for oily and combination skin. Salicylic acid and lactic acid gently exfoliate to help clear pores while witch hazel helps to soothe the skin.”

  • Oil Control Toner Balancing Tonic for Oily Skin

Picture3

Oil Control Toner is ideal for helping to cleanse oily, combination and acne-prone skin. As Aloeganic® aloe vera and oat amino acids help condition problem-prone skin and help reduce the signs of aging, witch hazel and rosemary extracts help to deep clean pores of excess oil and impurities. We love using Oil Control as a mild exfoliation to help give skin a shine-free finish. See what Dr. King says about how witch hazel works in Oil Control below.

“Witch hazel and rosemary extracts provide astringent properties in this oil control formulation while aloe, glycerin, castor oil and shea butter hydrate, moisturize and support the skin barrier.”

  • Ageless Science System

Picture4

Ageless Science is a two-step skincare system consisting of Ionic Energy Balance Mist and the Active Energy System. Ageless Science is formulated with age-defying ingredients to help promote an overall firmer, smoother-looking complexion. Formulated with a special nano technology that helps boost absorption, Ageless Science works to increase hydration, help reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and help visibly plump the look of skin with a combination of witch hazel, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and glycerin.

We love using this Cooling Treatment at night as it goes to work while you sleep.

Aloette Women Reveal Products That Make Them Feel Empowered

Share this:

At Aloette, we work with dedicated women who work hard to make clean, innovative beauty dreams come true. These women understand that using skincare-infused makeup and skincare products can help boost confidence in themselves, as well as help them feel empowered and ready to take on the day. We asked some women who use Aloette which products make them feel empowered, and this is what they had to say:

Sandy S, Consultant:

“The Aloette product that makes me feel the most empowered and beautiful is Ageless Science because the feeling that we have a little control in slowing down the visible signs of aging is empowering! Every day when I apply my Ageless Science mist and serum duo it feels like a boost in confidence!”

Ageless Science System pairs Ionic Energy Balance Mist and Active Energy Serum into a two-step skincare system formulated with age-defying ingredients to help promote an overall firmer, smoother-looking complexion. Created with a special nano technology that helps boost absorption, Ageless Science works to improve hydration, reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, and visibly plump the look of skin.

Arline L, Consultant:

“One Aloette product that makes me feel most empowered/beautiful is the Enzyme Peel. As a busy mom finding time to take care of my skin can be a challenge. I love that with the Enzyme Peel I can practice my self-care routine whether I have 2 minutes or 20 minutes and still have smooth, glowing and healthy skin within minutes!”

Our Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel is Aloette’s bestselling product due to its gentle exfoliation in such a short amount of time. For those like Arline L. who may have trouble finding time to take care of their skin, Restorative Enzyme Peel is a great option as it works right before your eyes to remove dead skin and help reveal a healthy looking, hydrated glow—all in just one minute!

Sawyer R, Consultant:

“The one product that makes me feel my best is Correction Code! It does it all. It firms, hydrates, and protects with broad spectrum SPF 25 and it doesn’t clog your pores…. it smells like the beach, but you won’t burn. I love this hybrid sunscreen product- the best of science and nature- delivering us an age defying powerhouse product in a non-comedogenic formulation.”

Correction Code Daily Moisturizer SPF 25 locks in hydration and enhances the skin’s natural moisture factor for softer, smoother-looking skin. Formulated with an age-defying peptide, this moisturizer works to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while firming the skin’s appearance. With SPF 25, this moisturizer also protects the skin from damage from potentially harmful UV rays making it a multitasking 2-in-1 moisturizer and sunscreen.

“Be Smooth All-In-One Balm. Aging is a fact of life, looking your age is not!”

It’s true. While we can’t avoid getting older, we can try to avoid looking older with the help of skincare products like Be Smooth All-In-One Balm. This all-in-one balm helps address signs of aging on the face, neck, décolleté, hands and even the look of nails, with conditioning essential oils and powerhouse peptide Matrixyl Synthe’6. Be Smooth helps firm the look of skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Straight from Aloette’s Advising Dermatologist, Dr. Hadley King Recommends These Products for Your Skin Concerns

When it comes to choosing a skincare product, there are so many to choose from… a cleanser, serum, a treatment, a different face mask product and more. It can start to feel confusing if you are not sure what you should be using for your skin to achieve the best results. If you have ever found yourself feeling overwhelmed by the abundance of skin care options, Aloette’s own Dr. Hadley King, an award-winning, New York City Based dermatologist, is here to help! Dr. King has been featured on Good Morning America and in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Women’s Health, Refinery 29, Men’s Health, Elle, Good Housekeeping, Self, and more! Dr. King is an advising dermatologist here at Aloette, and this week she is popping in our blog to help you find the right products for your skincare concerns. Let’s begin!

Dull-Looking Skin

If you have been struggling with dull-looking skin that needs a good refresh, Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel is for you! This non-invasive 60-second miracle peel gently smooths and exfoliates with zero downtime. Created with a combination of natural fruit extracts such as grapefruit, cucumber, papaya and pineapple, plus Aloeganic Aloe Vera, this Restorative Enzyme Peel is a great option for those who are dealing with dull skin. Here is Dr. King’s reasonings for how enzymes work well for gentle exfoliation:

“Enzymes are a great choice for exfoliation for those with sensitive skin who cannot tolerate Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids. They provide a gentler way to exfoliate and brighten the skin,” says Dr. King. “Most of the enzymes used in skincare come from fruits and vegetables, such as pineapple, papaya and pumpkin. These Proteolytic Enzymes help to break down proteins—including Keratin Proteins in the outer layer of our skin. This helps dead skin cells slough off, leaving the skin smoother and softer and decreasing discolorations.”

As one of Aloette’s bestsellers, this Exfoliating Gel is a great choice for those who are craving an exfoliation for their skin to reveal a healthy looking, hydrated glow.

Dry Skin

If you find that your skin needs some extra TLC this Fall due to dryness, Nutri-Hydrating Mist Daily Replenishing Face and Body Spray is a great solution! This convenient spray can travel with you in your purse to spray your skin anytime you feel that you need some extra moisture to quench your skin. Here is Dr. King explaining the importance of skin hydration:

“Keeping the skin hydrated makes it look more plump and improves barrier function. The Nutri-Hydrating Mist contains humectants such as Glycerin and Aloe to hydrate the skin, as well as Shea Butter to support the skin barrier and help to lock in moisture,” says Dr. King. “Vitamin B5 also helps to boost moisture in the skin, and Vitamins C and E have antioxidant properties to help protect the skin from damage from free radicals. Retinyl Palmitate, a Vitamin A derivative, helps to stimulate collagen production. And Silk Amino Acids also help to preserve moisture in the skin.”

Keep this Daily Replenishing Face and Body Spray with you at all times to help replenish your skins moisture levels whenever you need an extra boost.

Aging Eyes

For eyes that appear to be wrinkling with stubborn lines that won’t seem to go away, Line Control Eye Gel may be the skin care hero you’ve been looking for. This age-defying eye gel delivers plumping hydration and help firm the appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes while helping to diminish the look of dark circles. Dr. King highlights the ingredients in Line Control and their benefits here:

“Eye creams should be hydrating and moisturizing, and they can have multiple additional benefits as well, depending on their ingredients. This Aloette eye gel contains humectants like Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, emollients like Phospholipids to support the skin barrier, and occlusives like Shea Butter to lock in moisture,” says Dr. King. “It also contains Licorice Root extract and Kojic Acid to help diminish dark circles, as well as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which are potent antioxidants that work well together to help protect the skin from damage from free radicals.”

Acne-Prone Skin

While the microbiome is definitely a buzz word in the skincare community right now, it is important to keep your microbiome balanced to reduce the look of uneven texture. Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum is a great addition to your skincare routine to help balance the look of your complexion while helping to boost your skin’s barrier function. Here is Dr. King going in depth about why it is important to keep your microbiome balanced:

“We are learning more about the important role that the microbiome plays in skin barrier function and conditions like acne, rosacea and eczema… studies have shown that the microbiome directly influences skin, specifically in the formation of inflammation and acne,” says Dr. King “Some skin diseases, including acne and eczema, are associated with an altered microbial state; reversion of this state may help prevent and/or treat the disease.”

Beauty Biome is a perfect addition for both a morning and evening skincare routine to help keep your microbiome balanced for a more even-looking complexion.

Problem-Prone Skin

Whenever you are battling with a problem with your skin, it can be frustrating to try to find a product that does not make the problem worse. Visible Aid Skin Restoring Cream provides targeted relief from sunburns, insect bites, blemishes and other skin problems. With soothing and good-for-your-skin ingredients like Aloeganic Aloe Vera and vitamin E, Visible Aid is a good product to have on deck whenever blemishes or other minor skin problems occur. Dr. King agrees that Aloe Vera and vitamin E are helpful ingredients in Visible Aid here:

“Aloe vera hydrates the skin and has soothing, anti-inflammatory properties as well. Vitamin E has potent antioxidant properties that help to protect the skin from damage from free radicals,” says Dr. King

If you periodically find yourself dealing with problem-prone skin, Visible Aid is a beneficial product to have to help soothe the skin.

Refresh Your Skincare Routine with Aloette

Model Holding Beauty Biome 1080x1080 1
Share this:

Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder why your skin isn’t looking as glowy and Instagrammable as it used to? It is likely caused by your skin becoming accustomed to your skincare and what once worked for you in the past is now not working as well. Did you know that if you use the same products over and over, your skin can become acclimated to certain products and ingredients? Just like spring cleaning, sometimes our skincare routine needs to be *revamped* to provide something that works better for our skin. Lucky for you, Aloette has tons of moisturizing skincare ingredients and products that can help bring your dull, dry skin back to life and give you the revamped skincare routine your skin deserves.

The first suggested thing to do when your skin is looking *blah* and dull is to change your cleanser. The cleanser is (usually) the first step in a skincare routine and is what you typically depend on to help get all of the gunk out of your pores. If your pores are clogged and practically begging for help, your cleanser is likely the culprit. Finding a cleanser that will help draw out pore-clogging impurities to help reveal fresh, glowy skin is not as hard to find as you think. Aloette Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser is a perfect place to start. With ingredients such as Lactic Acid and Aloeganic Aloe Vera, this daily cleanser will help kick dirt to the curb as it cleanses skin for a more radiant-looking complexion.

If you are in a long-term relationship with your cleanser and cannot bare to part ways with it, a new toner may be a good addition to your skincare routine to revamp the skin. The purpose of a toner is to gently refresh your skin while preparing it to absorb any other products you layer on top of it. Toners are known for brightening, balancing, and clarifying the look of skin. A toner like Pure Radiance Bioactive Mist with Lumitone is a great place to start as it has Kombucha Mushroom Extract as the main ingredient to help bring dull and tired skin back to life. The spray component makes this toner easy to use. Simply mist your skin twice daily to help increase resiliency and the look of brilliance in dull, lackluster skin.

We are used to hearing about prebiotics in our foods and drinks, but have you ever considered prebiotics for your skincare? Just like prebiotics in food and drinks, prebiotics in skin care can help balance the good and bad bacteria on your skin. If your skin is dry and flaky, there is a good chance that your skin has fallen out of balance with your moisture barrier. Aloette fan-favorite Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum contains Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, a prebiotic that promotes a rejuvenated appearance to help give your skin a youthful-looking glow. This must-have serum also contains Lactococcus Ferment Lysate to help replenish the skin’s moisture barrier, which is key if you are trying to get your dry skin under control.

Sometimes our skin just needs to hit a restart button. If you are looking for a quick fix for your tired and dull skin, the Restorative Enzyme Peel is for you! This exfoliating gel peel will hydrate and relieve dry skin with Organic Aloe Vera while also removing dead skin cells with Fruit Enzymes. The peel works to gently remove dry skin to help leave you with glowing-looking skin. This peel also works overtime, as it accomplishes this in only 60 seconds! This best seller has over one hundred five-star reviews. No wonder people call it a 60-second miracle peel!

If your flaky, dry skin is practically pleading for more hydration, try Maximum Moisture Complex! This skin-loving moisturizer is jam-packed with shea butter and glycerin to help revive dry, dehydrated skin. The Complete Ultra Hydrant moisturizer formula quenches thirsty, dry skin with ultimate hydration to help reveal a more youthful-looking and moisturized appearance. As the last step in your *new* skincare routine, this moisturizer will lock in moisture to deeply hydrate your skin.

Move your body in a way that feels good to you—dance in your living room, play tag with your kiddos, or do some gentle stretches. Anything that gets you moving counts! Once you’re all done, you can make your post-workout shower a little more relaxing with  Coconut Milk and Turmeric Nourishing Body Wash and Coconut Milk and Turmeric Refreshing Body Mist. This orange and ginger-scented duo helps sooth and refresh your skin with gentle ingredients like Aloe, Coconut Oil, and Hyaluronic Acid that can help you wind down post-workout. Now you’re well on your way to relaxation!

  1. Try Visualization!

It’s totally ok if you relax by watching three to five episodes of your favorite sitcom on Netflix, but that’s not necessarily how relaxation looks for everyone. Simply setting aside some time to concentrate on a calming image or place or repeat some affirming words to yourself as you relax your muscles can help lower stress and improve your mood. If you try a new relaxation technique this National Relaxation Day, try making it a part of your routine over the next few weeks to get more of those benefits. Before you start picturing that calming island or elegant Parisian café, apply some Hand and Body Silk anywhere your skin feels dry. Focusing on the gentle floral scent can delight your senses as you relax your body, and the gentle Aloeganic aloe vera and Coconut Oil formula will leave your skin soothed and softer-feeling.

  1. Entertain Your Brain!

Like we said before, relaxation takes many forms! Are you a podcast junkie? A bookworm? A lover of classic videogames? Setting aside time for one of these pastimes can help you relax and recharge as you listen to or play through engaging stories. Grab an excellent romance novel or pop in an old favorite game and unwind with your beloved characters.

  1. Get Quality Sleep!

Think of National Relaxation Day as the kickoff for better self-care habits. Like our other tips, getting 7-8 hours of sleep consistently at night is a practice that can help you relax year-round! Having trouble settling down? It may help to impose an electronics curfew—shut down your computer, IPad, TV, or phone an hour or so before bedtime to get your brain in gear for quality sleep. While you’re having your golden hour, treat yourself to a luxe hand-care routine with Hand Couture Anti-Aging Hand Creme and Hand Polish Exfoliating Hand Scrub. Start with Hand Polish to help slough away dead skin cells and prep the skin to absorb moisture, then massage in some peptide-infused Hand Couture help brighten and firm the look of the skin. Not only will this pre-bedtime routine keep your hands busy while you break your Instagram or TikTok habit, it will also help sooth dry hands and lock in moisture while you get your beauty sleep

Getting out in nature—whether it’s a busy city park or a hike in the mountains—can have some amazing benefits for your mind and body. Just ten minutes of outdoor time a day can lower stress levels, and walking, hiking, or running outside are great ways to stay active and learn about your environment. We all know that spending time in nature just feels good, but it’s also important to be cautious with your skin if you’re exposing it to the elements. Some changes in our skin are natural as we age, but other signs of aging come from external sources like pollution, smog, UV rays, and other environmental stressors we encounter daily, especially if we live in bustling cities. Certain skin care ingredients can help protect your skin from environmental stressors, which is why we love our Aloette Environmental Defense Collection. This week, we’re bringing you a break down of our Environmental Defense products by skin care concern. Got more than one skin care concern like most of us do? You can snag any two of these first-rate defenders for $69 US or $85 CA!

Environmental Defense by Skin Concern

For Brighter Looking Skin: City Detox Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser

Maybe you love the hustle and bustle of the city, whether you’re catching the train, meeting up with friends at the new “It” spot, or going to see your favorite band. City Detox is here for you when you get home with all that city fun sinking into your skin. This powder cleanser is formulated with Papain, an enzyme that comes from the papaya fruit, which works as a gentle exfoliant to break down makeup, dirt, and impurities from your daily grind. Your microbiome needs to be at its best to defend against environmental stressors, so City Detox helps gently cleanse your face without stripping it of natural, healthy oils. This customizable, Aloe-based cleanser helps protect all skin types from everyday environmental stressors, but its exfoliation factor makes it especially great for brightening up the look of dull skin.

For Setting Makeup: Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist

You’re a makeup maven, so your glam looks amazing when you step out your door at 7 or 8 AM. How does it look after your commute though? What about at six when it’s time to go out for dinner or drinks? Environmental stressors can do a number on even the most carefully crafted makeup look but layering your look with lightweight Set + Shield can help lock it into place. This multipurpose formula helps protect your skin from environmental stressors like pollution and keep your complexion healthier-looking, and it’s your perfect fit if you like a matte finish to your makeup.

For More Hydrated Skin: BioDefense Environmental Protection Cloud Crème

Keeping your skin hydrated is one of the keys to a healthier microbiome, which is especially important if your skin is exposed to stressors like high energy blue light, UV rays, or pollution regularly. If your skin is on the drier side, this Cloud Crème is a satiny smooth addition to your morning or evening skincare routine that can help replenish your skin for a healthier-looking complexion. With good-for-your-skin ingredients like Green Algae Extract, Dandelion Extract, and our signature Aloe Vera, BioDefense helps provide anti-pollution benefits as it instantly hydrates and plumps the look of skin with its luxe gel-to-serum texture. Whether you spend your day out in the elements or working with screens, BioDefense can help lend an added boost of anti-pollution benefits to your skin care routine.

For Clearer Looking Skin: Pollution Control Environmental Defense Charcoal Mask

Adding a gently exfoliating mask to your skin care routine a couple times a week can help draw out impurities and keep your skin looking clearer and more refined. With ingredients like Charcoal Powder and Bentonite and Kaolin Clay, our Pollution Control mask helps draw out excess oil and pore-clogging impurities as Lactic Acid gently sloughs away dead skin. Regularly treating your skin to a deep clean with the sea-derived ingredients in Pollution Control can help with environmental stressors AND can help you unwind: leave this mask on for ten to fifteen minutes to let this skincare mask sink in and follow with your favorite Aloette serum and moisturizer.
