We’re as big of fans of skincare and makeup hauls as the next beauty lovers, but sometimes it’s all about what you do in between skincare product applications that can be the game-changer for your complexion. Here are 7 ways to help improve your overall skin health without needing to add more products to your skincare routine.

  1. Clean your makeup brushes

Old makeup, bacteria, oil and sweat—your makeup brushes really need a rinse. Remembering to clean your makeup brushes at least once a week can help prolong the life of your brushes, encourage a better product application and provide gentler care to your skin. And it’s simple:

To clean your makeup brushes, all you need is your trusty morning cleanser and lukewarm water. After wetting brush bristles with water, place a drop of cleanser in the palm of your hand. Gently swirl the brush in your palm and rinse thoroughly. Be sure to squeeze out any extra moisture and then gently re-form your brush to its original shape. To dry, set your brushes off the side of your counter on a clean paper towel or towel and you’re good to go.

  1. Shower and cleanse with lukewarm water

Okay, we are totally of the opinion that a steaming hot shower has its rightful place in every wellness routine…but, did you know that regularly using hot water to cleanse can actually strip your skin of much-needed oils and dehydrate your complexion?

Try using lukewarm water when you wash your face and body for skin that feels clean and still looks hydrated. No need to get rid of your scorching showers completely, but it may be a good idea to save them for the days you need that extra warmth the most. And, as we always recommend, make sure you’re applying a thick moisturizer and pampering body lotion post-shower to help skin stay hydrated and conditioned.

  1. Treat skin with a more gentle touch

On the subject of cleansing, be gentle with your skin. While scrubbing down your skin might make you feel extra clean after a long day, it’s better to lightly massage your cleanser across the face and body using gentle circular motions, letting the product do the work. When it’s time to dry, gently blot skin rather than rubbing it dry to help lock moisture into skin.

  1. Turn your serum application into a facial massage

Rather than just patting in a serum, help enhance your relaxation and lock-in the skin-loving benefits of your serum with a facial massage. Whether you use a skin care roller, a gua sha stone or simply your clean fingers, a facial massage helps increase product absorption and reduce the appearance of puffiness for a healthier-looking complexion.

  1. Resist the squeeze

It’s so much easier said than done, but resisting the temptation to pick and squeeze at blemishes is a small but important change to make for your skin. While it might feel satisfying in the moment, picking at blemishes can cause discoloration and even more breakouts in the future.

  1. Consider your wardrobe

Especially during the winter, we’re *piling* on the fabrics in semi-successful attempts to stay warm. Even though we can sometimes tolerate a bit of suffering for ~fashion~, maybe it’s time to swap out those itchy, scratchy sweaters for comfier, more breathable alternatives. Or, dress in layers so that your chic (but rough) wool sweater isn’t directly touching your skin.

Additionally, make sure you have a pair of gloves handy to help stave off dry skin due to wind or chill.

  1. Switch to silk pillowcases

Whether you’re all about age prevention or looking for an excuse to turn your queen mattress into a bed truly fit for a queen, it’s probably a good idea to switch to silk pillowcases. Regular pillowcases can create friction against your skin and can cause skin creasing or even wrinkling over time. Silk is gentle on the skin, helping to minimize wrinkles from pillow smooshing and even help prevent frizzy hair to boot!

How Do You Know Which Cleanser Is Right For Your Skin Type?

Beauty Biome Beauty Sleep Face Polish Gentle Foam on vanity 3000@300dpi
Share this:

All of us are on a quest for the “holy grail” cleanser—the face wash that can help us face the day (or wash it off) with a gentle, hydrating formula. After all, a daily cleanser that truly removes every last smear of foundation and smudge of mascara (along with dirt, oil and other pore-clogging impurities) is worth its weight in gold.

Each of us has unique skin concerns, so the ideal cleanser might look different for us all. That’s why Aloette is here to guide you through this first step of your skincare routine, helping you put your best face forward—whether it’s headed out the door or for the closest pillow.

OILY SKIN

The Oily Skin Type is known for producing excess oils, which can lead to a shiny appearance of skin. You may have oily skin if you experience:

  • Enlarged pores
  • A shiny complexion
  • Blemishes such as whiteheads and blackheads

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Oily Skin:

Stick Shift Exfoliating Cleanser Stick

Formulated especially for oily skin, this all-in-one cleanser, exfoliator and toner foams on contact to help draw out dirt, oil and other impurities through a powerhouse blend of Charcoal and Moroccan Lava Clay. It helps reduce the appearance of blackheads and enlarged pores for an overall improved look of skin tone and texture.

DRY SKIN

The Dry Skin Type naturally produces less of the oils that help skin stay balanced. You may have dry skin if you experience:

  • Skin tightness (especially after cleansing)
  • Red, flaky patches
  • Nearly invisible pores

 Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Dry Skin: 

Hydra-Cleansing Emulsion Daily Face Wash for Normal to Dry Skin

Just as the name implies, this ultra-creamy face wash is designed to hydrate and cleanse skin at the same time. Through deeply conditioning skincare ingredients like Aloe Vera and Shea Butter, this daily cleanser intensely moisturizes skin while gently removing makeup and impurities for a hydrated, fresh finish.

 COMBINATION SKIN

The Combination Skin Type has both oily and dry areas across the complexion. You may have combination skin if you experience:

  • Areas of dryness
  • Shine and blackheads across the T-Zone
  • Enlarged pores

Our Facial Cleanser Picks for Combination Skin:

Essential Cleansing Oil

Even though the first instinct for those of us with combination skin might be to stay away from oils, an oil-based cleanser can actually help balance skin for a healthier-looking complexion. Essential Cleansing Oil is perfect for nighttime cleansing and makeup removal—soothing and hydrating as it helps remove pore-clogging impurities like dirt and makeup for a refreshed, residue-free finish. With Sesame, Avocado, Olive and Safflower oils, this face wash gently conditions skin for a more radiant-looking complexion.

Pure Radiance Revitalizing Cleanser

Helping to create an age-defying complexion, this Revitalizing Cleanser gently exfoliates and helps remove pore-clogging impurities for clearer-looking skin. Pure Radiance features Lumitone Complex to help brighten, soothing Allantoin, powerhouse Amino Acids and gently exfoliating Lactic Acid to help refresh and renew the look of your complexion.

NORMAL SKIN

The Normal Skin Type is known for having an even oil balance across the complexion. You may have normal skin if you experience:

  • Even appearance of skin tone
  • Clear-looking complexion

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Normal Skin:

City Detox Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser

With just a sprinkle of water, this charcoal-infused Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser effortlessly transforms from a fine-grained powder into a luxurious, sulfate-free lather. It helps break down dirt, oil, makeup and other pore-clogging impurities for a complexion that’s visibly softer, smoother and brighter-looking.

SENSITIVE SKIN

The Sensitive Skin Type can be oily, dry or both, but with the added criteria of becoming easily irritated. You may have sensitive skin if you experience:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Dryness

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Sensitive Skin:

Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Pamper your skin with a calming blend of Chamomile, Green Tea and Aloe Vera that gently removes excess oil and impurities while helping to replenishing the skin’s natural hydration levels. With a lightweight, velvety foam, this gentle cleanser helps create a more radiant-looking complexion.

ACNE PRONE SKIN

The Acne Prone Skin Type is known for having pores that become easily clogged, causing frequent (and oftentimes, persistent) breakouts. You may have blemish prone skin if you experience:

  • Frequent blemishes such as blackheads, whiteheads and pustules
  • Note: While blemish prone skin is often associated with oily skin, you can have either oily or dry skin and still be prone to blemishes.

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Acne Prone Skin:

Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser

Formulated specifically for blemish prone skin, the Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser works to unclog pores and help draw out impurities like dirt and excess oil. Utilizing skincare superstars Lactic Acid, Aloeganic Aloe Vera and Peppermint Oil, Start Clean cools and soothes skin to help reduce the appearance of blemishes for an overall clearer-looking complexion.

Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser is part of the AloeClear Collection designed specifically for acne prone skin. The full collection also includes a refining toner, spot treatment lotion and oil-free moisturizer.

2021: Your Aloette Year in Review

Beauty Biome Pollution Control Full Time Brow on white and towel 1080x1080 1
Share this:

We’re making a list—we’re checking it twice! That’s right, we’re talking about an exclusive round-up of this year’s freshly released Aloette Beauty products. The skin care and makeup new arrivals that, as you’ve told us through reviews, social and your Aloette consultants, have quickly become some of your all-time favorite Aloette products! From skincare superstars like Retinol serums and indulgent shower collections to makeup masterpieces like brow pencils and vegan mascara, Aloette is proud to have been the beauty soundtrack to your 2021. Let’s take a look back at all these Aloette products that have become *such* an integral staple of your beauty routine, you’ll be saying, “That was only this year?”

1. Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum

This year began with all of us Aloette lovers putting on our lab goggles and learning about what the skin’s microbiome actually is. We’ve learned that, in order to promote a healthier-looking complexion, we need to help keep our skin’s mini ecosystem in equilibrium. Enter Beauty Biome. This Microbiome Complex Serum helps balance your complexion and boost your skin’s barrier function. It features a blend of prebiotics and probiotics that help reduce the look of uneven skin texture and encourage a healthier microbiome. That’s a pretty valuable biology lesson!

2. Pollution Control Environmental Defense Charcoal Face Mask

The year carried on with 2021’s first addition to the Platinum Collection, Pollution Control. This smooth, pore-refining skincare mask, featuring skin-clarifying powerhouse ingredients Charcoal Powder, Bentonite & Kaolin Clay and Lactic Acid, has become an Aloette instant classic. The dual-action clarification and gentle exfoliation mask formula helps create a softer, smoother-looking complexion that truly makes you consider having a no-makeup day!

3. Tropical Gardens Coconut + Turmeric Body Collection

 We could try to describe our Coconut + Turmeric Body Collection all day, but we think one of our reviewers, Jillian, said it best: “Vacation Dream!” This body wash, body mist and body lotion trio has turned a regular shower routine into a tropical oasis, thanks to its decadent scent profile and ultra-moisturizing skincare ingredients like Aloe Vera and Shea Butter.

4. Complete Contour Hydrating Lip Volumizer

The Platinum Collection’s second release of the year, Complete Contour literally gave ‘em some lip by helping to soften, smooth and hydrate lips for a fuller-looking pout. This Hydrating Lip Volumizer is infused with Cocoa Butter, Raspberry Seed Oil and Acai Oil to help improve the appearance of dry, dehydrated lips and protect your pout from environmental stressors. From an under-mask hydrator to a winter weather moisturizer, we need a Complete Contour in our purse, our car, our office and in our homes.

5. Leaf Relief CBD Infused Aloe Gel

As Patricia S. says, Leaf Relief CBD Infused Aloe Gel is “Everyone’s Must Have!” Formulated with organic Aloe Vera, CBD, a blend of antioxidant-rich Mediterranean Extracts and Vitamin E, Leaf Relief Aloe Gel helps lock in moisture while providing long-lasting relief to dry, itching skin. This gentle formula helps show your skin some love after a long day.

6. Full-Time Brow Fine Tip Eyebrow Pencil

2021 has been *all* about the brow. Full-Time helps create fuller, natural-looking brows while also pampering the eyebrows with Shea Butter and Vitamin E. The ultra-fine tip helps fill in even the tiniest of hairs, while the spoolie brush helps tame fluffier brows. With Full-Time, *you* are in control of your brows.

7. Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum

In a lot of ways, this year has been about renewal—Aloette has helped carry that over to your complexion with Renewal-A, a Platinum Collection serum that uses skincare powerhouse Retinol (a derivative of Vitamin A) to help smooth, brighten and firm the look of skin. It also includes Niacinamide and Vitamin C to help improve the look of skin tone and texture. And did we mention that it does all the work as you sleep? Now we’re talking!

8. Winkable Lift & Lengthen Vegan Mascara

Last but not least, we released Winkable, our first Vegan Mascara designed to help lift and lengthen the appearance of lashes. Inspired by the playfulness of a wink, this lightweight, gentle, and versatile mascara can help create natural or dramatic lash looks while also aiding against flaking or smudging. This mascara reminds us to keep a sense of humor and wit about us no matter what comes next.

 

We can’t wait to see you in 2022!

How to Practice Self-Care Over the Holidays

Muddy Up on bathroom counter 1080x1080 1
Share this:

The holidays are a time of gathering and togetherness with friends, family and all of our loved ones. We reminisce on old memories and make new ones—whether it’s a few hours or a few days. While the reunions are nice, sometimes all the shared space and cooking and hosting can get to be a little… much. Aloette is here to share tips on how to make time for *you* this holiday season with 5 fool-proof ideas to holiday self-care that really put the “me” in “merry and bright.”

  1. Morning Reflection

The house can get pretty hectic over the holidays—whether it’s dodging around blow-up mattresses in the living room or pulling up extra chairs to the dining room table. While all you probably want to do is sleep in, it might be nice to actually get up a little early, before the chaos of clamoring for breakfast begins. Take 5-10 minutes for yourself as part of your morning routine to add a sense of relaxation and preparedness to your day. Sit outside while sipping on coffee, set an intention for the day or listen to your favorite song. Whatever it is, start the day your way. You may find everything else becoming a little bit more manageable.

  1. Aromatherapy

Try: Re/Lax Aromatherapy Bath Salts

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a hot bath and a glass of wine. Take your bath to the next level with Re/Lax Aromatherapy Bath Salts. Featuring a subtle ginger-citrus scent, Re/Lax helps invigorate the senses and relax the mind for a soothing bath and skin care experience. Help soak your worries away with this mini *you* moment at the end of your day!

  1. Multi-task & Multi-Mask

Try: Muddy Up Deep Cleansing Mud Masque & Beauty Parfait Probiotic Yogurt Treatment

With only so many hours in the day, it can sometimes feel like you’re trying to choose between flopping down in front of the TV or following your skin care routine. You don’t have to choose—do both! Before sitting down, put on a thin layer of Muddy Up Deep Cleansing Mud Masque. Flip on an episode of that baking show we *all* love as you wait for the mask to dry. This pascalite clay-infused mask will help draw out pore-clogging impurities like dirt and excess oil for a clearer-looking complexion. It’s a skin care mask that you feel working. As the clay dries, you feel your skin tightening underneath. Follow Muddy Up with ultra-hydrating Beauty Parfait Probiotic Yogurt Treatment to intensely moisturize and help soothe the skin for a healthy-looking glow. Multi-task and multi-mask! You can have your cake and eat it, too.

  1. Light Up

Since when does 5 PM feel like 9 PM? The sun sets so early during the holiday season and it can be tough to adjust. Try adding gentle light sources to your home for an instant mood boost in the evenings. Whether candles (scented or unscented), lamplight or holiday decorations, this will help you feel more awake and alert while also creating a warmer atmosphere and extra holiday cheer.

  1. Palette Refresh

Try: Get the Look: Rose Flush

A big part of self care is being self-aware, and to be honest, sometimes picking up new makeup is *just* what the doctor ordered. We’re loving Get the Look: Rose Flush as a fresh new palette to get that frosted rosy look for the holidays. It features a translucent setting powder, a warm bright pink blush, a pinky mauve lipstick and 3 shimmering and matte EyeSilk eyeshadow shades in neutral rose, rose gold and deep brown. For the perfect matching manicure, add on our sister brand butter LONDON Dearie Me!, a cool rose crème nail lacquer that truly nails the look.

By following these 5 self-care tips from Aloette, we hope you’ll escape the Holi-Daze and instead be present with your loved ones! Happy holidays!

It’s a Match: Monochrome Nails & Makeup Look

The monochrome makeup look has made waves in the beauty world this year, with makeup lovers matching nail lacquer shades with eyeshadow, eyeshadow with lipstick, lipstick with bronzer and everything in between. Monochrome makeup lends itself well to a timeless look when used with classic makeup shades like berry or neutral. It can also make for a brilliantly bold makeup look when using an eye-catching shade like metallic gold for eyeliner and nails.

The cooler air this time of year can roughen and dry out skin, making it all the more important to have our best-selling Restorative Enzyme Peel Exfoliating Gel handy throughout the winter. Ultra-smooth and cooling, this fan-favorite 60-second exfoliator gently sloughs away dull, dead skin—to the point where you can literally see the dead skin coming off.

SPF? Pardon us while we have a “When I was your age…” moment, because some of us grew up in a time when people literally slathered oil on themselves to fry in the sun (and when SPF 6 was a big deal). With that kind of SPF-less background, it’s easy to know (firsthand) the possible damaging effects of the sun—freckles, dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles come to mind—no matter the skin tone. Still, SPF protection is far too underrated today, often viewed as a simple beach accessory to use while on the white sands and to forego once again after vacation is over. We’re here to say that the sun’s UV rays don’t just stick to beachy, sunny days. Rain or shine, here’s why it’s beneficial to wear a broad spectrum SPF Sun Protectant every single day, no matter where you are.

You’re after an age-DEFYING complexion—not aging.

The very best protection from an aging complexion is prevention, and whether you’re in your 20s or your 60s, it’s beneficial to use skincare products that help keep your skin looking as radiant as possible. UV rays from the sun can accelerate the aging process, no matter your skin tone, and as much as 80% of the sun’s UV rays can still reach your skin on a cloudy day. Daily protection from the sun is truly a beneficial way to help prevent signs of aging and protect the look of your complexion.

Winter weather can have an impact on UV Exposure.

While it’s not as widely discussed, winter weather can have just as big of an impact on skin as the summer sun. Things like altitude and snow can affect the UV exposure you may get—the higher the altitude of your area, the more likely you’re exposed to more UV rays. Similarly, snow reflects the sun’s UV rays back up just like sand does, making it *as* important to also apply a broad spectrum SPF before you go out in the cold.

SPF helps maintain an even-looking skin tone.

The sun emits two types of rays: UVA and UVB. UVB rays are known to cause sunburn, which is what we typically think of when we consider sun damage. But UVA rays can also cause signs of aging like hyperpigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles that disrupt and dull skin tone and texture. A broad-spectrum SPF helps protect skin from both UVB and UVA rays, aiding in prevention of signs of aging and helping to preserve the look of skin.

Pro Tip: The sun can dry out the skin, making it appear less vibrant. Along with your SPF, we recommend moisturizing regularly for a more hydrated and healthy-looking complexion.

If you’re using a Retinol-based skincare product.

Retinol, a vitamin A derivative, has long been lauded as *the* age-defying ingredient to help create a firmer, more radiant-looking complexion. It can help visibly smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and encourages healthy skin renewal for more vibrant-looking skin. While Retinol is likely a skin-loving staple of your evening skincare routine, it’s important to remember that it may cause increased sun sensitivity. We recommend pairing your PM Retinol with an AM SPF moisturizer to help put your best face forward.

Make SPF part of your daily skincare routine.

Applying a daily SPF moisturizer like Aloette Correction Code can provide skin with much-needed hydration while also helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! A member of Aloette’s premium skincare Platinum Line, Correction Code helps get your skin ready for the day with a boost of hydration and SPF 25 protection. Formulated with the powerful Matrixyl Synthe’6, a peptide that helps address signs of aging, this daytime moisturizer is designed to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while firming the look of skin for an age-defying complexion.
