Keep Skin Fresh, Glowing and Protected in Hot Summer Months

Posted on 06/27/2012

Shop the entire Eve Lom collection here.

Summer is the perfect time to tuck away your sweaters, but not your daily skincare routine. Before you place that bottle of moisturizer at the back of your drawer, keep it handy to protect and balance your skin’s tone.

Oily Skin Myth

If it’s hot and muggy out, it’s natural to think you don’t need to use a moisturizer after washing your face. After all, there’s enough moisture in the air to keep your skin hydrated, right? Wrong. When you fail to moisturize your face, even when the humidity outside reaches 100 percent, your skin will try to compensate by producing an excess amount of sebum. Consequently, your skin will look extra oily and dull, and you’ll be more prone to breakouts.

Eve Lom offers a solution with its unique Moisturizer + SPF 15, which is suitable for all skin and weather conditions. Your skin easily absorbs the moisturizer while the rosemary leaf and chestnut create a toning effect, giving you a matte look on even the hottest days.

Sun and Environmental Protection

Whenever you use a daytime moisturizer, make sure it contains UV protection. The SPF in Eve Lom moisturizer can help prevent skin cancer and cellular damage, especially when you pair it with other sun-smart techniques. Furthermore, the red, green and white tea extracts are antioxidants that help fight free radicals and prevent premature aging.

New Product Spotlight - Repair Sun Damaged Skin with Liftlab

Posted on 06/20/2012

Lift LabLearn more about LIFT LAB products here.

It’s never too late to turn back the aging clock. Sun exposure, environmental damage and lifestyle habits can make your skin look older than you like, and the LIFT LAB line of products recently added at b-glowing enhances and repairs both sun-damaged skin and skin with fine lines or wrinkles.

The Science Behind LIFT LAB

The natural Cell Protection Proteins (CPPs) in LIFT LAB products help protect against environmental factors, including UV rays, and promote the self-regulating activities of your skin cells. Consequently, LIFT LAB products help reduce up to 95 percent of inflammation and irritation caused by harsh environmental factors and UV rays. While improving the natural balance of moisture in your skin by binding to cell membranes and regulating ion transfers, CPPs help skin cells generate their own protection barriers and growth proteins with continued use. The result is healthy skin that’s lifted, firmer, smoother and protected.

Beauty Confessional - Staff Favorite Lip Glosses & Lipsticks!

Posted on 06/20/2012

It's the first day of summer which also happens to be National PDA (public display of affection) Day! Make sure you're giving lots of kisses to your significant other in pops of color. See below a list of our go-to staff favorites to not only leave a great lip tattoo on your man's cheek but look amazing as well!

Bre's recent pink obsession has led her to By Terry's Rouge Terrybly Lipstick in Cupid Peony. She describes it as somewhere between a fuchsia and baby pink and has been wearing it non stop in the office. Bre gets dry lips on occasion and one of her biggest pet peeves are lipsticks that are dehydrating and get stuck in the cracks after the rest of color has worn off. By Terry's lipsticks glide on so smoothly and stays moist the entire time, without bleeding or drying. If you're going to spend $49 on a lipstick, this one is well worth it….says Bre.

 

Erika loves to mix up soft neutrals and bright pops of color from day to day. Today was a neutral day as she rocked Ilia Lip Conditioner in Nobody's Baby. It's a sheer touch of soft, romantic color that is perfect for an everyday hue. Who knew that organic lip products could be so good? Only the b-glowing girls in the know that's who! The Ilia tinted lip conditioners contain organic ingredients to soothe and condition the lips. 

 

Kelsey (aka Higgins) is a bit saucy and is really loving experimenting with bright lipsticks, glosses and stains. When the new Butter London Lippys arrived she was the first to grab Butter London's Lippy in Snog a red/hot pink hybrid. Just like their nail lacquers, the Lippys are long wearing and heavily pigmented, giving instant color transformation to lips without having the longer application process time as a lipstick.

 

Katelyn is our latest beauty recruit and she cannot praise Ilia Lipstick more. Her color favorite is Neon Angel (the hottest pink) and she swears by it's lasting power and the summery smell! Ilia Lipsticks contain not only nourishing ingredients like Jojoba Oil, but also essential oils like Jasmine and Orange Blossom.

Get the Bronze Glow You've Always Wanted

Posted on 06/22/2012

Self Tan Bronzing SprayShop the full St Tropez collection here.

Warm days and the bright summer sun can remind you how ghostly pale your legs may look. Before putting on your favorite bathing suit and laying out a beach towel, remember that there’s a healthier way to get the bronzed glow you’ve always wanted. The answer comes in a bottle of St. Tropez spray tan, the self-tanner of the stars.

UV Dangers

Regardless of your age, for every minute you expose yourself to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the higher your risk for developing skin cancer. The sun and salon tanning beds expose you UVA and UVB rays that damage your skin, cause premature aging, loosen its elasticity, give you wrinkles and cause brown spots. Furthermore, those who use a tanning bed have a 74 percent greater chance of developing melanoma than those who don’t, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Never think you are too young to develop skin cancer, because even women in their 20s can fall victim to the disease.
