Jennifer Aniston Has The Easiest Skincare Tips Ever!

We fell madly in love with Jennifer Aniston back when she was a fresh face on a new T.V. show called Friends. Now over 15 years later, we’re still smitten with her in just about every role she’s played since then.

One thing we can’t help but be envious of is the fact that Jennifer Aniston hasn’t seemed to age a day since we first laid eyes on her, and believe it or not, her routine is super easy to follow and shockingly down to earth!

She’s An Advocate For Self-Care

jennifer aniston, jennifer aniston skincare, celebrity skincare routine, celebrity skincareAlthough self-care may be in the spotlight recently, Jennifer has been practicing it since long before it was an Instagram trend. Whether it’s taking a few minutes to enjoy the sunset every day or taking 10 minutes undisturbed to go through her skincare routine, Jen knows that a little bit of self-love goes a long way for results.

Take a page out of Jennifer’s book and schedule yourself 10 minutes of self-care time. Instead of rushing through your skincare routine, take a moment to enjoy cleansing, to gently nourish your skin with an anti-aging moisturizer, or to enjoy a DIY facemask you’ve been waiting to try.

She Takes Moisturizing Very Seriously

jennifer aniston, jennifer aniston skincare, celebrity skincare, celebrity anti-aging, celebrity skincare routineFrom head to toe, Jennifer Aniston pays extra attention to her moisturizing routine and praises it as one of the reasons she’s stayed looking so youthful. Jen is an ambassador for Aveeno and loves it for her body. For her face, Jennifer loves any face cream that contains peptides, as she knows it’s the most effective for reversing wrinkles and lines.

Using your Repair and Release Cream twice a day should yield similar results because it’s packed with similar peptides to Jennifer’s routine without the hefty celebrity price tag. While celebrity facials or creams that produce collagen and elastin can run upwards of $300, a peptide-rich moisturizer will produce the same results when used consistently.

Workouts Are Her Skin’s Best Friend

jennifer aniston, jennifer aniston skincare, celebrity skincare, celebrity skincare routinesJen loves to break a sweat and it’s the reason her body looks as healthy and youthful as her face does. From pilates to hiking through the Hollywood Hills, Jennifer is always on the move to get her blood flowing and break a sweat.

Exercise has tons of benefits for your body and your skin. Getting blood flowing will help deliver nutrients to your skin to help it glow from the inside out. Just make sure you’re not forgetting your cleansing routine after a workout, otherwise, that amazing sweat session will just lead to clogged pores and breakouts.

Here’s How To Get Great Skin For Flawless Makeup Application

Almost every woman in America wears some form of makeup everyday. We use it to express ourselves, feel confident and put together, and simply because we enjoy it. But if your makeup application isn’t as easy as it was years ago, chances are aging skin has something to do with it.

As we get older, wrinkles, creases, and dullness can all factor into how our makeup looks when we apply it. That’s why we decided to give you three easy tips to ensure your skin looks healthy and smooth so you can get that flawless, airbrushed look when you apply your makeup.

A Smooth Complexion

foundation, smooth complexion, good skin for makeup, makeup and skincareWe use makeup to put our best face forward, but if makeup is looking mismatched, cakey or dry then applying foundation and blush can be a nightmare. If you feel like you’re makeup isn’t blending but instead sits on the top of your face, you’ll need a little bit of help smoothing out your complexion.

For makeup that absorbs, glides on skin, and provides full coverage, you’ll need to pay special attention to your moisturizing habits. Ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and argan work to condition skin back to a softer and more supple feeling. This will make applying liquid or powders to your face much easier and accentuate wrinkles far less, which is why we included them in our Repair & Release Cream formulation.

Concealed Dark Circles

concealer, under eyes, eye wrinkles, eye care, eye serum, eye creamOne of the most popular and widely used makeup is for concealer for dark undereye circles. Many times, eye makeup application can be difficult to blend and that’s likely because you are experiencing dryness around your eyes. If your undereye area is dry,  you’ll be seeing creasing and caking when you apply your concealer.

This is because the dehydrated skin is accentuating your wrinkles, causing your makeup to look awful. For a quick and easy fix, apply your Eye Lift Serumabout 10 minutes before your makeup. This will give it time to absorb, working to lighten dark circles and reduce puffiness, while also hydrating skin for a smooth application.

Find The Right Formula

south beach skin lab, repair and release cream, eye lift serum, eye serum, moisturizer, best moisturizer, olive oil cleanser, best oil cleanser, oil cleansingSome products have very specific ingredients that can cause allergy or irritations to your skin. When it comes to skincare, skip anything that comes from Korea or China because you don’t’ really know what’s in it or how those products were tested. The testing methods in other countries (think animal testing!) can’t always be trusted and sadly, many companies are not transparent about what happens behind closed doors.

Instead, opt for skincare that is made in the USA so you can be confident that it’s safe and effective with homegrown ingredients. This will ensure you’re using quality products that were made with integrity and have trustworthy ingredients. Plus, we never test on animals!

Here’s How To Know When It’s Time For A Fall Skincare Routine

fall skincare, fall anti-aging, sensitive skin, dry skin, breakouts

It’s September and nothing throws your skincare routine into a frenzy like changing seasons. Early fall can be especially difficult considering you’re still dealing with humidity, but also starting to feel dryness from the cool fall air at night.

How do you know when your skin is ready for a seasonal change? Look for these signs to know when its time to ditch summer skincare and start prepping for fall!

Flakey Skin

flaky skin, flakey skin, dry skin, how to fix dry skin, fall skincare routineWhen the temperatures start to drop at night, dry air can be destructive towards your skin. The first sign of fall are those cool evenings and while they may seem like a welcome break from the heat, it’s actually drying your skin out. You’ll notice flakes of skin appearing on your face by your hairline, nose, chin or jawbones.

Fighting flakey skin is as easy as keeping it hydrated with a powerful moisturizer and using it every morning and night. Twice a day application will help keep dullness and flakey skin at bay while allowing for your skin to absorb all the hydration and nutrition it’s been craving.

Breakouts

breakouts, adult acne, fall acne, weather and acneGoing between dry and humid weather daily can throw your skin into turmoil and cause some serious breakouts. When your body changes from cold to sweating, and then back again, it can cause the dry, dead skin builds on your face and then locks in sweat and oil when you’re feeling warmer again. This will cause your pores to clog and produce some of the worst breakouts you can imagine.

To avoid this, keep your skins pH balance even by using an oil-based cleanser. It will help protect your skin from the extremes and keep it soft and supple, no matter which way the temperature goes. It also helps clear away dead skin and dirt out of pores to reduce your chances of breakouts and keep skin looking flawless!

Sensitive Skin

Signs of sensitivity can show up as redness, tenderness or bumps on your face and they can be caused by something as simple as changes in the air. Don’t stress, sensitive skin doesn’t have to be permanent and there are some simple steps you can use to make sure you’re protected.

Using a water-based moisturizer twice a day is going to minimize your risk of sensitivity and help to diminish and redness or tenderness you might feel in your skin. There are also anti-microbial properties in our Olive Oil Cleanser that will help clear out any bacteria and dirt that could be leading to your skin’s sensitivity.

Here’s How To Give Your Tired Summer Skin A Boost!

With humid temperatures, the drying sun, and the air conditioner blasting, it’s totally natural for your skin to take a beating over the summer months. This can be one of the hardest times of the year for your skin but with a little extra love at the end of the season, you can undo a lot of the damage from home.

Banishing dark spots, hydrating dried-out skin, and brightening dullness have never been easier! Now that it’s finally September, this is the best time to give your face an end of summer boost that will change your skin!

Exfoliate

exfoliation, summer skin, end of summer skincare, fall skincare routineIf your skin is rough and covered with dead skin cells, free radicals, and buildup then your products will never penetrate well enough to give you the results you desire. In order for your products to be able to work their best, you need to clear away the clutter on your skin and start with a soft, exfoliate canvas.

Exfoliating doesn’t just get rid of buildup on the surface of your skin, it helps circulate blood and allow oxygen to reach your skin cells. This will help the skin look brighter and feel softer. Plus it will allow for the active peptides in your Repair & Release Cream to penetrate deep into wrinkles and lines to banish them for good!

Hydrate!

hydration, repair and release cream, south beach skin lab, end of summer skin, fall skincare routineNothing makes your skin feel drier than months of sun exposure. Even if you have been diligent about your SPF all summer, the rays of the sun go deep into the skin and can dry out even your deepest layers of your dermis. If you aren’t using your moisturizer at least twice a day, you could be doing some serious harm to your skin.

Dry skin will make your wrinkles look deeper and your skin look dull, both of which will age your face beyond your years. Instead, turning to a moisturizer with shea butter, argan oil, and cocoa butter will take years off the look of your wrinkles and delivery maximum hydration to bring your skin back to life after a long, hard summer.

Be Consistent

consistent skincare routine, skincare good habits, summer skincare, fall skincare rotuineThis is the time of year where building good routines and habits for your skin can go a long way. In the summer, it’s easy to get off schedule with your self-care and that can have you skipping days of moisturizer or not cleansing properly before bed. All of these factors can be reduced when you stay diligent with your routine.

Studies have shown that using your routine in a consistent way can help reduce wrinkles by up to 60% more! Applying your cleanser properly, or using your Repair & Release Cream morning and night are some of the easiest ways to maximize results. If you think your skin can thrive without a great anti-aging routine, think again!

If you’ve never heard of coconut oil, you might be living under a rock. This natural ingredient can pull its weight everywhere from your self-care routine to your kitchen, and the benefits are endless!

When it comes to fixing rough and dull skin, no other ingredient can outperform coconut oil, which is why its a standout ingredient in our bestselling Repair & Release Cream!

Here’s are just a few ways it’s going to help your skin…

It Prevents Signs of Aging

wrinkles, skincare tips, antiaging tips, coconut oil, natural skincare ingredients, benefits of coconut oilWhen your skin becomes inflamed, it leads to the destruction of your skin’s collagen and elastin. These two proteins are responsible for keeping your skin firm and smooth, meaning that a loss of these will quickly lead to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. 

Coconut oil helps your skin by correcting your skin tissue and boosts the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. Because of it’s milky, soft texture, it absorbs deep into pores to reverse wrinkles and lines. Applying your Repair & Release Cream, which is packed with coconut oil, will neutralize any free radicals in your skin and protect your cells from damage that leads to aging.

It Nourishes Your Skin

Nourished skin always shows fewer signs of wrinkles, sun damage and sagging which will not only have your skin looking great, but will have you feeling confident!

Using coconut oil will also help restructure the matrix of your skin and promote softer and more supple skin from head to toe. While using it on your face as an ingredient in our Repair & Release Cream, you can also slather it on from head to toe to nourish dry legs, hands or feet.

It Repairs Previous Skin Damage

That helps to minimize UV damage and keep skin safe from the sun, pollution, and dirt.

Simply using an oil cleanser twice daily will help brighten your skin by removing dead skin cells from the surface and digging deep to clear pores.

If you feel like you need an extra boost to combat dullness, a weekly exfoliation may be just what you need! Exfoliating uses abrasion to remove dead skin and leave a soft, supple feel to your face.

When your skin is exposed to UV rays, it starts to fight off a whole range of issues but argan oil is here to help! Not only will it destroy dark spots, but it will also soften wrinkles and sagging skin too, which is why it’s included as one of our key ingredients for our Repair & Release Cream.

What is really impressive are the studies of argan oil in reversing discoloration in the skin which is thanks to its very high concentration of antioxidants, and particularly the amount of vitamin e it contains. This allows argan to help skin neutralize free radicals and prevent oxidative damage that will cause dark spots.

Controls Oil and Breakouts

You may think that using oil would make the skin more oily but the opposite is true. In fact, tests with argan oil showed that using it on oily skin helped produce less sebum, which is the substance that can clog pores and make skin look greasy.

Argan oil is great at pulling dirt and oils from pores too which are going to cut back the number of breakouts and pimples you experience. The result will be smooth, healthy pores without free radicals and buildup!

Dark circles can literally ruin your day. If you’ve got a big meeting or a special date night planned, there is nothing more annoying then applying layers of concealer and hoping it works to hide them.

Sleep On Your Back

Well, experts agree that this can be the reason you’re waking up with raccoon eyes. When you sleep with your face pushed into a pillow, it can put a strain on the delicate skin around your eyes and make dark circles look even worse.

To combat this easily, do your best to stay sleeping on your back. This will not only help relieve waking up with dark circles, but it will also have a huge benefit for jowl lines and wrinkles which can occur when your face is pushed up against your pillow.

Use Witch Hazel

An all-natural ingredient, it is super effective for every single skin type, which is why its a key ingredient in our Eye Lift Serum.

Witch Hazel is totally safe and natural and is often sold as a clear astringent that you use as a toner for your entire face, or specifically for your dark circles. Another huge benefit to witch hazel is that it will help de-puff your eye area and mask sagging skin from aging. This super-powered ingredient will be the key to revitalizing your eye area and taking years off the look of your eyes.

Avoid Bad Foods

high sodium foods, bad food for skin, bad for skin foodsYou are what you eat, and it’s no shock that what you put into your body has a direct effect on how your skin looks and feels. We know the basics, stay away from lots of sugar, greasy foods, and processed foods, but do you know that some foods are going to directly result in dark circles?

Some foods are considered “allergenic” which means when you eat them, they can cause dark circles and swelling as a reaction to your body processing it. Some allergenic foods to steer clear of for bright eyes include items high in sodium and potassium. Instead, opt for healthy choices like grapes or broccoli to calm inflammation and fight darkness around the eye area.
