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.

Say Goodbye To Dull Skin With These Three Easy Steps

Dull skin can put a damper on your day. It doesn’t matter if you feel like you’re glowing on the inside if on the outside you don’t look your best. That’s a level of insecure we never want you to feel.

The good news is banishing dullness and restoring your confidence has never been easier. Turns out it only takes three easy steps to revive your skins glow and ditch dull skin for good!

Cleansing and Exfoliation

cleanser, exfoliation, oil cleanserCleansing your skin is the single easiest way to stay on top of dull skin that can accentuate wrinkles and dark spots. When dead skin builds on the surface of your face, it can make your face look like it has no life to it. 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. Exfoliating on occasion will help make sure that your oil cleanser can dig deep into pores without being blocked by buildup on your face.

At Home DIY Mask

diy skincare, diy fast mask, diy skincare ideasUsing a mask once a week can help keep dullness at bay. You don’t have to rush to Sephora to splurge on one either, because some of the most effective masks for dull skin can be made right at home. Some of the best ingredients to use are lemon, avocado, banana, and honey, most of which you can already find in your kitchen at home. If you’re struggling for inspo, check Pinterest to get ideas.

You want to make sure you’re not overwhelming your skin with masks because that can lead to breakouts. Instead, keep masks to once or twice a week as a special treat for your skin or the day before a big event. The result will be glowing skin from the minute you rinse the mask off.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

moisturizer, dull skin, dull skin tricks, hydrated skin, best skincare moisturizersUsing your Repair & Release Cream doesn’t just make your skin feel great, it’s going to make it look great too. Pumped full of powerful ingredients like shea butter, argan oil, and coconut oil will banish dullness and revive your skin to a younger-looking glow. Hydrated skin is also a much better canvas for makeup like foundation and blush. If you find your makeup looking cakey, your skin routine is probably suffering from lack of hydration.

What’s remarkable about the power of your moisturizer is that it can nourish your skin while deeply repairing damage in your dermal layers. We love when one good habit hosts a ton of great benefits and we can’t think of anything better than nourishing skin while protecting it at the very same time!

 

Gwen Stefani Looks Half Her Age As She Approaches Her 50th Birthday!

As this pop-punk powerhouse continues to take over Hollywood and the music business, we can’t help but be blown away by the fact that Gwen Stefani will be turning 50 this year. Meanwhile, she’s managed to stay wrinkle-free and as youthful as she did when she was in her 20’s!

So what is Gwen’s secret to her seemingly eternal youth? Well, she’s picked up a few tricks over her years in the spotlight to not only feel great but look amazing too! Here are a few of the skincare secrets Gwen was willing to spill on how she looks so fab at almost 50!

She Loves Sunscreen

gwen and blake, gwen stefani, blake shelton, blake and gwen beach dayA huge key to Gwen Stefani’s ageless skin has to be her dedication to her sun protection routine. Despite having grown up in California where the sun is shining every day, by her 20’s she stopped tanning at the beach and started covering up her skin.

If you happen to catch those paparazzi shots of Gwen on the beach with beau Blake Shelton, she’s slathered on at least an SPF 40 to help keep her skin safe from the sun. This is for sure the reason she doesn’t have a wrinkle or dark spot in sight!

She Let’s Her Skin Breath

gwen stefani, gwen stefani makeup, gwen stefani makeup tutorialBeing in the public eye and performing non-stop means lots and lots of makeup. Always one to have fun with her look, it’s easy to catch her sporting her heavy black eye and bold red lips. Wearing lots of makeup isn’t the problem but if you aren’t properly cleansing your skin to remove it and give your pores some time to breathe, you will start to see the negative effects right away.

Using an oil-based cleanser, Stefani removes her makeup the minute she’s finished a concert or a taping of her hit TV show The Voice. Using an oil cleanser allows her to trust that all the dirt, makeup, and grime is 100% gone from her face. She then applies an anti-aging moisturizer and lets her skin breath makeup-free for the rest of the day or night.

She Knows Good Lighting

gwen stefani, gwen stefani looks, gwen stefani skincare routine, gwen stefani skinWe all know that celebrities have the benefit of professionals who help with their hair, makeup, and of course their photos. Gwen, however, knows exactly which lighting works for her and always puts her best face forward when she knows her skin will glow.

So how does Gwen make sure the light hits her just right? She makes sure to keep dull skin at bay by being religious about her moisturizing routine. Gwen knows that great skin looks better than great makeup any day of the week. She works to take care of her skin vs. covering it up as needed.

You Should Never Wash Your Face With Hot Water And Heres Why…

We are huge advocates for taking your cleansing routine seriously. Washing your face twice a day is one of the easiest ways to achieve skin improvements but if you’re using hot water, you’re actually hurting your skin in more ways than one.

Don’t worry, a slight tweak can save your skin in no time! Here are just a few of the nasty side effects you can expect if you keep washing your face with hot water.

It Irritates Your Skin

skin irritation, washing face with hot water, hot water side effects on skinThe top layers of your skin are where your pores live, and just below the surface is where blood vessels are. These two factors make your facial skin especially delicate and vulnerable to extreme temperatures. When you wash your face with hot water, you may see red blotches of skin which are actually just the blood vessels getting irritated and causing unnecessary redness.

To avoid irritation, lukewarm water is all you need to pair with your cleanser to get a thorough clean and have your face feeling soft and refreshed. Washing with cold water can also have just as bad a reaction to your skin so finding that lukewarm balance is crucial to happy skin.

It Strips Your Natural Oils

cleanser, skincare routine, skincare tips, washing face with hot water

Using scorching hot water will no doubt strip your skin of its natural oils and leave you with that dry, stiff feeling in your face. If you’re using a traditional foaming cleanser, expect that dryness to be even worse. Hot water + foaming cleansers is the perfect disaster that will lead to dry patches, flakey skin, and dullness.

Once you’re ready to ditch the hot water, ditch the foam cleanser too and opt for a super hydrating Olive Oil Cleanser which will work well to remove dirt with the warm water, but also re-balance the pH levels in your skin. The result will be a soft, smooth and brightened face even after the first use.

It Can Make You Age Faster

dry skin, wrinkles, hot water to wash face, skin damageWhen skin is dry and dehydrated, it becomes a breeding ground for new wrinkles to form and old wrinkles to stand out. The last thing anyone needs is any help to accentuate wrinkles, so stay away from hot water that will dry you out and make you look older.

If you switch to a lukewarm temperature to wash your face, you’ll start to find your wrinkles are less noticeable. You should also be following up your cleansing with a powerful moisturizer and eye serum that doesn’t just hydrate but packs your skin with collagen-producing peptides and proteins. Who knew such a small tweak to your routine could have such a huge impact!

Collagen Supplements: Can They Actually Help Your Skin?

collagen, south beach skin lab, supplements for skincare, skincare foods, anti-aging supplements

One of the hottest trends right now are collagen supplements which claim to help you repair and revive your skin from the inside out. Sounds like a unicorn, right?!

As we age, we naturally produce less collagen and elastin but can these oral supplements make up for it and provide actual results? Our experts dove into the collagen supplement trend to break down everything you need to know – and if you can actually expect any results.

What Are Collagen Supplements?

collagen, collagen supplements, skincare foods, skincare nutrition, skin foodsCollagen is one of the most abundant proteins in our bodies and recently, both capsules of collagen, as well as powders, have hit the market claiming they’re the next “big thing” in skincare. Could it be just another snake oil salesman?

Most of the collagen peptides you’ll find in stores and online today contain a “hydrolyzed” type of collagen which is extracted from hides, bones, or fish scales. Hydrolyzed simply means the particles are in smaller units, which is what allows you to mix in the powder with both hot and cold liquids.

What Are The Benefits?

wrinkles, anti-aging, collagen, collagen supplement, wrinkle supportThe purpose of a collagen supplement is to get your body a healthy dose of collagen to keep wrinkles at bay, similar to the promise of high-performance skincare, but with far less science to back it up. Like with any new product, there are benefits promised, and then what you can actually expect to see.

The companies pushing these collagen products promise to help with digestion, reduce wrinkles, and improve the health of your hair, but recently experts spoke out against these claims. “The science is truly in its infancy,” says WebMD. “There’s a lot of conflict of interest, and not enough quality control.”

Is It Worth It?

collagen, collagen supplements, collagen safety, anti-aging, wrinkle helpThe short answer is no. While we believe that there is a benefit to getting collagen in your body naturally through foods like fish, pork, beef, and chicken, the type of proteins that are usually included in collagen supplements get lost in your digestive tract and never provide any benefits. Instead, stick with a topical moisturizer that delivers the proteins and collagen directly to your skin.

The human body doesn’t absorb collagen whole, so the idea that taking a supplement can directly promote skin or hair health isn’t true. Assuming just because you swallow something it will benefit your body in its same form is not only incorrect, it can have long term negative effects with the lack of proper research surrounding this new craze.

 

Three Reasons You’re Not Seeing Results With Your Current Routine

Is there anything more frustrating than doing everything you can for your skin only to see any improvement? Everyone has skincare goals they’re trying to achieve but getting down on yourself for lack of results can make you want to give up.

Before you do, you should know there are a few easy tweaks that you can make to see optimal results in your skin. These aren’t drastic or painful measures, just simple tips that experts swear can provide results.

Adding these tweaks to your skincare routine will have you smashing your skincare goals in no time!

Get Some Extra Sleep

sleep, sleep for better skin, skincare tips, skincare hacks, skincare adviceWhat would adding an hour of sleep a night do for your skin? Well, experts agree that it can really transform your skin and kickstart results if you’ve had trouble achieving them in the past. Our bodies do the most healing while we sleep and repairing damage to the skin is no exception.

No matter how amazing your skincare products, you can expect dullness, dryness and exaggerated wrinkles if you’re not getting enough sleep. If you have trouble falling asleep, try putting electronics away at least an hour before bed and avoid coffee in the afternoons so you can wind down easily at night.

Apply Your Products Correctly

skincare tips, skincare advice, skincare hacks, skincare application, how to apply skincare productsUsing great products will do absolutely nothing for your skin if you’re using them wrong. Like baking a cake, skincare is as much a science as it is a hobby and making sure you apply your products can reduce the time it takes to see results.

In the interest of keeping a simple routine, all you really need are three effective products to protect your skin and reduce wrinkles, sagging and discoloration. Always make sure you’re thoroughly cleansing your skin twice a day minimum, applying peptide-rich moisturizer morning and night, and using a product that’s made specifically for your delicate eye area – which ages twice as fast as the rest of your face.

Make A Lifestyle Change

yoga for skincare, workouts for good skin, great skin, skincare tips, skincare trendsSometimes the lack of results is because your lifestyle is undoing all the good of your routine. If you’re a smoker, heavy drinker, or have a soft spot for greasy fast food, do your best to cut back on these vices. What you put in and around your body can be crucial in seeing results on your journey to wrinkle-free skin.

Lifestyle changes aren’t only about cutting things out, but about adding healthy and beneficial changes to your everyday life. Something as simple as a 30-minute daily walk or yoga can help increase blood flow to the skin, and give it some breathing room in nature. Not only will this help erase wrinkles and keep your skin bright, but it will have overall benefits to your health!

Is It Safe To Apply Sunscreen Before Your Moisturizer?

Skincare is like science and the application order of your products can make the difference in seeing results. One staple in every skincare routine is SPF protection and we’ve always heard it should be the last thing you apply to your face before leaving the house.

Recently, an article was published about applying it as the first layer and the online beauty community lost their minds. We decided to investigate using sunscreen as your first skincare step and if it’s really safe.

The Type of Sunscreen You Use Matters

spf, spf protection, sunscreen, sun care, skincareApplying sunscreen before the rest of your skincare is possible, but it is a bit more difficult depending on your type of sunscreen. Some sunscreens are chemical while others are made from minerals. If you use a chemical sunscreen, it actually requires absorbing into the skin to be able to protect. That means that applying it over top of other products could change the properties and effectiveness of the SPF and it should always go under your other products.

Mineral sunscreen is protecting your skin but instead of absorbing, it does so by sitting on the surface of the skin to reflect UV rays and keep free radicals from causing wrinkles and damage. If you are using a mineral sunscreen it will matter which order you apply it in and you should always apply it last.

Avoid Two In Ones

sunscreen, sun cream, spf, spf protection, sun protection, skincareWhile it might seem tempting to just switch to a moisturizer that includes SPF protection, the fact of the matter is that it will never protect your skin as well as using two separate products.

Take the Repair and Release Cream for instance, which is formulated without SPF. Because of its powerful peptides and antioxidants, the chemicals and sunscreen would not only be less effective, but it could actually hurt the results you see. That’s why we suggest keeping your SPF protection and your moisturizer with essential antioxidants and peptides separate.

No Matter What, Re-apply!

spf, spf protection, sunscreen, sun cream, sun protection help, skincareNow that you know chemical sunscreen should be your first layer and mineral sunscreen should be your last, we want to remind you that no matter what kind of sun protection you use, it won’t work unless you re-apply! Sunscreen can’t last through sweat or water and can wear off in only a few hours so keep some handy in your car, desk or handbag.

Reapplying your sunscreen all day also requires a little extra attention when cleansing your skin at night. The buildup of sunscreen can cause clogged pores, enhanced wrinkles and breakouts so make sure you’re cleansing thoroughly morning and night with your olive oil cleanser to keep skin healthy and safe.

What Are Static Wrinkles And How Can You Stop Them?

When you look in the mirror, it’s easy to assume the lines on your face are “just wrinkles”, but did you know there are multiple types of wrinkles and they each require special care? One of the most common and hardest types to reverse is called Static Wrinkles.

What Are Static Wrinkles?

wrinkles, static wrinkles, wrinkle care, anti-agingStatic wrinkles are a type of wrinkle that is visible even when you’re not moving your face. Static wrinkles are unique because they have nothing to do with your facial expressions but are a product of accelerated aging and other factors like lifestyle.

It can look like your face is deflated when static wrinkles happen and the most noticeable sign is sagging skin. That’s why the most effective products for static wrinkles include collagen and elastin producing proteins and are extremely hydrating.

What Causes Them?

static wrinkles, wrinkle care, anti-aging, wrinkles, skincareStatic wrinkles are a product of gravity, genetics, and lifestyle. They can be caused by poor lifestyle choices like smoking or drinking too much alcohol, but can also be produced by not protecting your skin from sun and pollution.

Experts say that touching your face or pulling at your skin when applying makeup can also be a cause of static wrinkles. No matter where they come from, they remain one of the most difficult types of wrinkles to reverse. While some women opt for expensive botox treatments to help with static wrinkles, you can get the same results without the pain if you’re using products with peptides that can reverse wrinkles and damage.

How Can You Repair Them?

wrinkles, static wrinkles, wrinkle relief, anti-agingGetting rid of static wrinkles will make your face look like you’ve turned back time. Although it’s not an overnight miracle, you can treat static wrinkles and make them less noticeable with a high-quality skincare routine. Something as simple as washing your face with an oil-based cleanser to fully remove dirt and pollution can have a huge improvement on your skin.

If you’re not already using a moisturizer with collagen-producing ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 then it’s time to switch asap. Research proves that making the switch can help erase up to 80% of static wrinkles with continued care. Static wrinkles don’t have to control how old you look, just take the best preventative measures to keep skin looking youthful!

People With Great Skin Never Skip These 3 Things

great skin, tips for great skin, best skincare tips, tips for wrinkles, how to get rid of wrinkles

Have you ever looked at someone and thought “WOW! Their skin is amazing!”? One thing all people with flawless skin have in common is that they follow a few simple lifestyle rules to keep their face looking its best.

Want to know their secrets? We’ve compiled the 3 good habits people with great skin swear by!

They Never Skip Cleansing

oil cleanser, olive oil cleanser, washing your face, cleansing for better skin, how to use an oil cleanserWashing your face is the most important part of your routine because it does so much for your skin with little effort. Not washing enough, or using the wrong kind of cleanser can result in wrinkles, dullness and dead skin cells building up and clogging pores. To avoid this, you need to be cleansing twice a day.

What you cleanse with is as important as how often you cleanse. If your skin is on the dry side, or you notice sagging and deep wrinkles, it’s time to switch to an Olive Oil Cleanser which can clean pores but won’t strip your skin of natural oils it needs to protect itself from aging. An oil cleanser will also help balance the pH in your skin while foaming cleansers can dry and damage the skin.

They Start From The Inside Out

skin food, good food for skin, healthy food for skin, skincare foodsHaving great skin isn’t just about what you put on your face, it’s about what goes into your body too! If your goal is flawless skin, you need to be making sure you’re giving your body all the love and nutrients it needs to not only reverse damage and signs of aging but to also prevent more of it in the future.

People with great skin often consume tons of antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Some popular choices are salmon, sweet potatoes, sunflower seeds, and walnuts, just to name a few. People with great skin also skip sugary sodas and never miss a day of water intake, keeping it to a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day.

They Think About The Future

skincare tips, anti-aging tips, preventative skin care, anti-aging skin care, If you aren’t thinking about your skin long-term, chances are your efforts now will be wasted. While it is tempting to just focus on wrinkles and sagging skin you see and feel now, it is important to remember that damage to the skin shows up years later and protecting it now against future damage is so important.

People who have great skin know that youthfulness is a marathon and not a sprint. Instead of focusing on one specific wrinkle or area they want to improve, they look as skin health as a big picture and aim for long term results over an instant improvement. They stay diligent about their preventative anti-aging routine to make sure their skin looks as great years from now as it does today!
