Should You Wear SPF Sunscreen All Year-Round?

Be Picture Perf Correction Code Luminous Tint on marble 1080x1080 1
Share this:

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.

5 Ways to Transition Skin into Fall with these Aloette Skincare Must-Haves

Hand and Body silk on fall lifestyle 1080x1080 1
Share this:

Sweater weather has finally arrived in all its glory and while we know *exactly* how to alter our coffee routine for the fall festivities (we’re looking at you, chai and PSL,) we need a little refresher on how to up our skincare routine to keep in touch with the changing of the seasons.

While we’re so here for the cooler air that accompanies the fall, it can have a drying effect on our skin. With that in mind, it’s probably a good idea to make the switch from lightweight summer products to creamier, more hydrating skincare superstars. Keep reading for 5 of Aloette’s favorite ways to prep skin for the fall.

  1. Opt for a Thicker Moisturizer

You’re already layering up this fall—layer up your moisturizer, too! Bundle your skin in velvety hydration with a thicker, creamy moisturizer that helps replenish moisture to the skin for a more hydrated and healthy-looking complexion. Invigorate tired skin with Nutri-C Moisturizing Crème, the creamy daily moisturizer powered by Vitamins C, A and E to deeply condition skin, help protect skin from environmental stressors and encourage a brighter-looking complexion.

  1. Kiss Chapped Lips Goodbye

No more licking lips to help soothe the dry, chapped lips that are oh-so-common in the fall. Take up a dual-action lip exfoliator and moisturizer that helps to polish away chapped, dry skin while also deeply conditioning the next layer of skin for ultimate pout protection. We love the 2-in-1 Soothe N’ Smooth Lip Balm & Exfoliator for this, as the calming lip relief formula gently exfoliates away dry skin to help improve the look of lip tone and texture, while also locking moisture into the lips with Aloe and Peppermint Oil.

  1. Help Prevent Dry, Itchy Skin

Skin often pulls moisture from the air to help stay hydrated, and as the summer’s humidity fades away, your skin may start to feel dry or itchy. Help rejuvenate the look of skin with the hydration it needs with Hand and Body Silk, the deeply conditioning yet lightweight hand and body lotion. Made with soothing Aloeganic Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil, this non-greasy moisturizer will help keep your skin soft and leave behind a gentle floral scent for the fall.

  1. Add an Eye Cream

As the weather cools and we spend more time inside in front of the TV for late night marathons, it can leave our eyes feeling fatigued and the delicate under eye area needing some extra special attention. An eye cream, like Eye Witness Eye Balm, helps pamper the skin with much-needed hydration and indulgent antioxidant treatment. Eye Witness helps address signs of fatigue and aging, like eye puffiness, dark circles and crow’s feet, with soothing Cucumber Fruit Extract and Aloeganic Aloe Vera for the appearance of well-rested, perked-up skin.

  1. Wind-Proof Your Looks

The chilly autumn wind is so enthralling when it’s swirling leaves in the street, but when it comes to our hair and makeup, it’s a different story. Help protect the flawless makeup looks you took so long to create with a matte setting spray like the Aloette Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist. This lightweight, ultra-fine setting spray helps lock makeup into place with a skincare-infused formula that also helps protect the skin from environmental stressors for a fresher-looking complexion. With a dewy, just-applied matte finish, Set + Shield helps you put your best face forward for all that the day holds.

Which Type of Lash-Loving Mascara Should You Use?

Alist Lash LushLuxe Topself Winkable on marble caps off 1080x1080 1
Share this:

We all have that one defining memory of when we used mascara for the first time. Leaning over our mom’s bathroom counter and accidentally blinking before the mascara dried. Getting our makeup done at a department store beauty counter. Letting our older siblings glam us up (results may vary). While mascara can seem like a beginner’s guide to beauty—a box to check off—it’s time to learn how we can really start loving our lashes. Keep reading to learn how the ideal type of mascara for you can vary based on your natural lash length, your aesthetic and even the occasion.

Benefits of Mascara

There’s a big reason why even on those “no-makeup” makeup days, everyday beauty lovers will swipe on some mascara before dashing out the door. The best mascara products add the appearance of instant definition to your lashes and can brighten up the look of your eyes to help you appear more awake and put-together for the day ahead. Mascara can also help volumize, lengthen or curl the appearance of lashes for fluttering eyelash looks.

Types of Mascara

There are three main types of mascara to choose from, varying in formula, wand design and specialization:

  1. Lengthening Mascara

The savior for short lashes has arrived! Lengthening mascara is aptly named, as it adds lightweight length to the ends of lashes to help create long and dreamy-looking lashes without weighing down the lids. Aloette’s jet-black Winkable Lifting & Lengthening Vegan Mascara is specially designed to coat each lash individually from root to tip for a noticeable look of added length and lift. With this lengthening mascara, you can keep it casual or ramp up the drama with the versatile, densely bristled wand that combs out each lash to help create ultra-defined, yet delicate lash looks from every angle. Plus, the air-light formula helps prevent flaking or smudging for comfortable, show-stopping wear.

  1. Volumizing Mascara

Sky-high lashes are always in season and a volumizing mascara is your fast-track there. These gravity-defying formulas are focused on adding the appearance of thickness to your lashes for a striking, eye-catching look. See for yourself with Aloette’s wow-worthy TopShelf Volume & Curl Mascara, the smooth-gliding mascara that gives your natural lashes some serious pop. The dual-action volumizing and curling mascara wand gives major life to your lash looks for longer, fuller-looking lashes. Get the fan effect with this jet-black formula that helps separate and lift lashes for a bold and defined appearance.

  1. Curling Mascara

Say goodbye to flat, lackluster lashes. A curling mascara helps transform the look of lashes from a straight line into a soft, natural-looking upward curl that’s the epitome of romance and day-dream. The curling mascara helps create subtle, buildable volume for a more lifted eyelash appearance.

Aloette’s A-List Lash Curling Mascara with Argan Oil truly rolls out the red carpet for lashes, as its skincare-infused formula helps condition lashes for a softer, healthier look. Argan Oil helps moisturize and protect lashes from root to tip, encouraging fuller-looking lashes and aiding in helping prevent premature fallout. Plus, the upcurved wand gently guides lashes into place for comfortable wear. This mascara is ideal for those in need of a multi-tasking, skincare-infused beauty treatment that helps lashes stand out.

Aloette Pro Tip: Lash Enhancing Serum

While mascara can give you the appearance of thick, high-definition and curled lashes, incorporating a lash enhancing serum into your AM/PM skincare routine can help strengthen natural lashes. A lash enhancing serum deeply conditions the hair follicles at the lash line to help prevent premature lash fallout and, as a result, promote healthier, fuller-looking lashes.

A fan-favorite of Aloette’s Platinum Skincare Line, Luscious & Luxe Lash Enhancing Serum is infused with many skin-loving ingredients to help strengthen and protect natural lashes, promoting natural-looking lash enhancement. Aloette’s innovative peptide complex, thanks to its protein makeup, is designed to help strengthen hair for more resilient-looking lashes. Also included in the lash-loving formula is hydrolyzed rice protein, which helps create more hydrated, durable lashes. Add in the moisture-locking capabilities of almond extract, and you’ve got all the makings for a true must-have mascara in your beauty bag. Simply apply a thin line to the upper and lower lash line, using the easy applicator, twice a day for best results.

Tuck Your Skin into Bed: 6 Steps to Better Beauty Sleep

Beauty Sleep Blog Image
Share this:

Whether it’s rain forest sleep sounds, an Aromatherapy-infused bath or the pale waves and familiar laugh track of a late night Friends marathon, we all have a trick to falling asleep. But what about our skin? It gets just as tired as we do throughout the day but doesn’t always get the love it deserves. We need to make sure we’re properly caring for it—tucking it in, so to speak—so that it can rest up and renew for tomorrow (and the next day). Follow these 6 skin-loving steps from Aloette for the ultimate beauty sleep skincare routine.

1) Remove Makeup & Wash off the Day

Sometimes the temptation is just *too* real to turn the lights out, fall into bed and pull the covers over our heads without removing our makeup. But, by washing off the day and letting our skin rest, we’ll wake up with a much more refreshed complexion in the morning.

We recommend double cleansing for the ultimate face wash experience: first, wash the face with an oil-based cleanser, then follow up with a water-based cleanser. An oil-based cleanser is our go-to for makeup removal, as it’s designed to break down oil-based substances, like makeup, sebum and sunscreen. Look for skincare formulas that combine this oil-eliminating capability with hydrating ingredients, like Aloette’s Essential Cleansing Oil, which couples skin-loving Sesame, Avocado, Olive and Safflower oils with Aloe and Shea Butter for a soothing, residue-free finish.

Next, segue into your water-based cleanser, which, thanks to the oil-based cleanser, can penetrate further into the skin to help remove pore-clogging impurities like dirt and sweat. Ideal for all skin types, Aloette’s Gentle Foaming Cleanser is the perfect cleanser for the job, as it removes impurities while conditioning the skin with Aloe, Green Tea & Chamomile Extracts to help maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

2) Set the Tone

While often deemed an optional step in the skincare routine, we think a toner is the must-have multitasker that helps balance your skin’s pH for a softer and smoother-looking complexion. Plus, a toner also helps ensure your skin is free of any hard-to-remove makeup, allowing the subsequent serums and moisturizers you apply to absorb further into the skin.

TRY: Pure Radiance Bioactive Mist

Pure Radiance Toner is designed to help balance, tone and firm the appearance of skin for, as the name indicates, a more radiant-looking complexion. Infused with Kombucha mushroom extract and Aloette’s proprietary Lumitone Complex, skincare ingredients geared towards moisturizing and brightening the appearance of skin, this toner is an ideal alcohol-free evening facial mist.

3) Serum Burst

Truly maximize your beauty sleep skincare routine by applying a conditioning serum before bed to help address certain skin concerns and amplify the results.

TRY: Florabright Advanced Brightening Serum

Infused with botanical extracts like Daisy Flower and Orange Blossom, this serum helps improve the look of uneven skin tone and dark spots to help promote a radiant-looking complexion. Whether you apply for spot treatment or use all over the face, Florabright Advanced Brightening Serum is a truly pampering addition to your skincare routine.

4) Nighttime Mask

We all love an indulgent, relaxing skincare mask to wind down the evening. Get the most out of this nighttime practice by choosing a mask type that’s best for your skin type.

FOR OILY/ACNE-PRONE SKIN: Muddy Up Deep Cleansing Mud Masque

  • Helps draw out pore-clogging impurities for a clearer-looking complexion

  • Gel-to-water consistency pampers all skin types with gentle exfoliation

5) Night Cream

Take self-care to the next level with an ultra-creamy night crème that can aid in the hydration process overnight. Look for a time-released formula so that your skin is continuously conditioned throughout your sleep. To help address skin concerns in the delicate under eye area like dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles, incorporate a more area-targeted night cream into your skincare routine.

TRY: Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment

We love Aloette’s Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment for the way it deeply hydrates and conditions the skin with an expertly crafted blend of Farm to Jar ingredients, combined with age-defying hyaluronic acid and squalene. Beauty Sleep helps you wake up to firmer, smoother and softer-looking skin while dramatically reducing the appearance of problem skin factors including cystic acne, redness and inflammation.

6) Body Care

Don’t forget the body care! An often overlooked portion of the beauty sleep skincare routine, incorporating indulgent body crèmes, scrubs and washes to help condition and exfoliate the skin promotes a soothed and soft-looking complexion.

FOR CLEANSING: Tropical Gardens Body Collection Bundle

Your new shower lineup has arrived! Relax and unwind from the day with an Aloe Vera and Shea Butter-infused body wash kit, including the Coconut Milk & Turmeric Nourishing Body Wash, the Coconut Milk & Turmeric Hydrating Body Lotion and the Coconut Milk & Turmeric Refreshing Body Mist. Effusing an enchanting, citrusy scent, wash, scrub and spritz away daily impurities with a rich, skin-softening lather and refreshing veil of hydration.

Purify Your Pores: Aloette’s Skin Care Solution for a Smoother-Looking Complexion

Model Applying Enzyme Peel RT
Share this:

What was it that Queen said in “Bohemian Rhapsody”? Was it “I’m just a pore boy”? Honestly, same. That’s how we feel whenever we come down with pesky breakouts that can sometimes dim our dewy complexions and put a damper on our glow. While pore-cloggers like dirt and excess oil probably aren’t going anywhere any time soon (thanks, hormones, environmental pollution and stress), a solid AM/PM skincare routine can help draw out impurities for a brighter-looking, more even-looking skin tone.

What Are We Up Against?

Sure, we know what blackheads and whiteheads look like, but how exactly do they form?

Blackheads, also known as open comedones, occur when your pore becomes clogged with sebum (an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands). The sebum undergoes a chemical reaction in which it’s oxidized and turns a black color.

Whiteheads, or closed comedones, appear when a pore fills with bacteria and, without a way for the bacteria to exit, form a white tip.

Pimples, AKA pustules and papules (they even sound annoying), occur when a pore becomes inflamed and fills with pus and debris. Pimples can swell and irritate the area around them.

And it’s not just a teen problem! Adult acne is a real thing, and it can sometimes be debilitating when it comes to being social… but it doesn’t necessarily have to be… not if we take measures to help prevent breakouts as much as possible.

So How Do We Help Our Skin Fight Back?

Your daily skincare routine is your best bet at helping to reduce the appearance of acne and other skin concerns. It’s what you do day in and day out—those habit-forming skincare choices—that help protect your skin from stressors and allow the inner you to shine.

AM

  1. Cleanse

There’s nothing better to help wake up in the morning than splashing some cool water on your face. Using an AM cleanser is the tried-and-true method for helping to remove any overnight dirt or oil you may have picked up from your pillowcase. Making sure your face is clean before you apply makeup ensures a clean foundation for your product to take to, helping provide better coverage and application.

TRY: Aloette Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser – This deep-clean gel cleanser helps cool and purify the appearance of skin, designed to draw out pore-clogging impurities from acne-prone skin, utilizing Lactic Acid, Aloeganic® Aloe Vera and Peppermint Oil.

TRY: Aloette City Detox Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser – Add just a sprinkle of water to this charcoal-infused powder cleanser for a luxe, sulfate-free lather that helps break down dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities for a brighter-looking complexion.

  1. Tone

A toner helps wipe away additional impurities and to enhance the absorption of other skin care products in your routine. Simply add a few drops to a cotton pad and apply to the face and neck in upward motions for a more balanced-looking complexion.

TRY: The Aloette Toner Collection contains specially formulated ingredients for each skin type. Help remove stubborn makeup, dead skin and other impurities without drying out the skin.

  1. Activate

A good rule of thumb with your skincare routine is to apply products in order of thinnest to thickest. Next up in the viscosity rank is serum, a nutrient-packed system that helps deliver and activate concentrated antioxidants for your skin. Whether it’s infused with age-defying hydroxy acids to help firm the appearance of skin or bright botanical extracts to help soothe your complexion, a serum can be a game-changer in the ultimate skincare routine.

TRY: Aloette Beauty Biome Microbiome Complex Serum – Help balance your complexion and boost the skin’s barrier function with Beauty Biome’s Aloe Vera + pre- and probiotic formula.

TRY: Aloette C The Light Vitamin C Serum – Help brighten the appearance of skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots for a more even skin tone with this skincare superstar.

  1. Moisturize

For deep hydration and conditioning of the skin, a lightweight yet hydrating moisturizer is a MUST in your daily skincare routine.

TRY: Aloette Be Smooth All-in-One Balm – Help address signs of aging with this skin-loving daily moisturizer. Featuring Matrixyl Synthe’6, this intensely hydrating balm helps smooth away dry spots and reduce the appearance of fine lines for a more clarified-looking complexion.

TRY: Aloette Gold Rush Crème to Oil Hydration Treatment – This creamy, age-defying pressed oil treatment uses an advanced botanical and tripeptide blend to help restore your skin’s glow with deep moisturization.

PM

No matter what type of day it’s been, your skin has been through a lot. While the same basic steps apply for your nightly skincare routine, the products you use may differ based on your needs for this time of day.

  1. Cleanse

For a nighttime cleanser, look for products that focus on removing makeup and daytime buildup for a residue-free finish. Aloette’s Essential Cleansing Oil helps soothe the skin and refresh it with leading ladies like sesame, avocado, olive and safflower oils so you can rest easy. You should also exfoliate the skin once or twice a week for a deep cleanse of your pores.

  1. Tone

You may prefer a lighter toner in the evening, like this Aloette Pure Radiance Bioactive Mist. Spritz the Kombucha mushroom and Lumitone Complex-infused mist onto skin to help increase the balance and brilliance of your complexion.

  1. Activate

A nighttime serum may be more target-focused on a specific area of the face, like the under eye area (especially necessary, depending on what time you get to bed!). Aloette’s Eye Witness Intensive Eye Balm helps reduce the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness for more awake-looking eyes.

  1. Moisturize

PM hydration is the best time to make use of an ultra-indulgent moisturizer that truly takes the time to penetrate past the skin’s barrier deep into skin. The Aloette Advanced Night Recovery Pro Night Crème with Revivaderm is an age-defying formula that helps soften skin for a more dewy-looking complexion in the morning.

The Ultimate Guide to Retinol with Renewal-A

Renewal A with towel and tray 1080x1080 1
Share this:

Maybe you’ve been an avid Retinol user for years, or maybe it’s simply a word that makes you go, “Oh, that’s that stuff in night cream, right?” Regardless, if some of your skincare goals include reducing signs of aging, brightening your complexion, and firming up the skin, it’s time you get to know the star ingredient behind Aloette’s NEW Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum, Renewal-A to understand how you can incorporate it into your weekly skincare routine for an age-defying, healthier-looking glow.

What is Retinol?

 The perfect base for your skincare cocktail, Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also encouraging healthy skin renewal. It penetrates deep into your skin, to the inner layer called the dermis, to help balance the complexion from the inside out.

Retinol is often associated with Retinoids, but it’s important to note that the two are not interchangeable. A “Retinoid” is an umbrella term for any form of synthetic Vitamin A, and can often refer to prescription-strength dermatologic skincare products. Meanwhile, Retinol is a gentler, yet highly effective ingredient used in over-the-counter skincare products like Aloette’s Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum that can play a massive role in helping to reduce signs of aging.

Who is Retinol For?

Because of Retinol’s incredible age-defying and skin-brightening properties, it’s often encouraged for use as soon as you begin to notice signs of aging in your complexion. While those with mature skin tend to see the biggest improvements with use, even those with younger skin can enjoy the powerhouse antioxidant’s skin-firming benefits. Feel free to begin incorporating a Retinol-based PM serum or cream into your skincare routine during your mid-to-late 20s and beyond, starting with applications 2-3 times per week and working up.

When Do I Apply My Retinol-Based Product?

 Because Retinol is formulated to even out the skin tone, it may cause increased sun sensitivity, meaning that you should only apply Retinol-powered products as part of your evening skincare routine. And, you should also make sure you’re using an SPF-based moisturizer every AM to help protect your fresh and delicate skin.

For an instant boost of hydration with Retinol serums, like Aloette’s NEW Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum, you should apply to freshly cleansed and toned skin, before your favorite moisturizer. If you prefer a time-released overnight cream, like Aloette’s Advanced Eye Recovery Pro, specially formulated to help perk up the under-eye area, make this the last step in your evening routine so that your skin can soak up ~all~ the skin-loving benefits while you sleep.

Should I Use a Retinol Cream or Serum?

While this is somewhat a matter of preference, it also comes with understanding how the differing benefits of a cream versus serum work to help address your specific skin concerns.

A serum is a nutrient-packed, hydrating delivery system that helps supply and activate concentrated antioxidants for your skin. Serums are often highly targeted for specific skin concerns—if addressing signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles and creating a more balanced-looking complexion with a burst of antioxidants are top skincare priorities for you, stocking up on a Retinol Serum like Renewal-A Age-Defying Retinol Night Serum would be a great way to optimize your skincare regimen.

Or, if you want an indulgent, ultra-creamy nighttime moisturizer that is very easy to apply and will take the night to absorb deep into the skin to help reduce the signs of aging and reveal a brighter glow, a Retinol cream may be for you. Try pairing with a Vitamin C serum to help complement the effects of the Retinol for a more youthful-looking complexion.
