How to Achieve the Ultimate Lash Look (No Falsies Here!)

Share this:

If the mask madness of the year past has brought us anything, it is a newfound appreciation for eye makeup. Back in the day, my beauty bag staple was a glossy lip or bright red pout, but nowadays, I tend to opt for a fresh face and lengthy lashes (for obvious reasons).

It is no wonder lash lifts and eyebrow tints have quickly gained traction in the beauty world, with influencers and consumers alike doing anything they can to lengthen, strengthen and volumize their appearance. But, if you want to achieve the ultimate lash look without the help of falsies or extensions, Aloette is here to help!

Keep on reading to discover must-have products, plus application tips, to help you define those lashes and make eyes pop—even with a face mask:

Apply a Hydrating Lash Serum

It’s easy to see why lash enhancements and falsies are on the rage, but if you truly want lashes that flutter, you need to start at the root. Using a lash serum to coat the eyelashes in hydrating and conditioning ingredients—like peptides and plant extracts—is an easy way to help boost both strength and length. Just like a face serum works below the skin, lash serums work to help enhance the look of eyelashes over time while preventing fallout. Just remember, consistency is a must!

Try: Luscious + Luxe Lash Enhancing Serum | Formulated with an innovative peptide complex, this oil-free lash serum is clinically proven to help lashes appear thicker, longer and stronger in as little as 4 weeks.

Multi-Task with Your Mascara

Get the best of both worlds with a jet-black mascara that doubles as “lashcare”. We all know mascara is one of the quickest methods to up your lash game in a hurry, so why not add a stroke of color and conditioning ingredients in the same swipe? Multi-tasking mascaras come in many forms, but they typically include a 2-in-1 formula that is infused with nourishing minerals and oils to help hydrate the lashes and prevent breakage. This also makes an infused mascara a must-have for any girl on-the-go, as it helps color and condition the eyelashes for extra length and curl.

Try: A-List Lash Curling Mascara with Argan Oil | Infused with Argan Oil, this A-List Lash Curling Mascara helps condition lashes while coating them in a clump-free formula that curls and defines.

Mind Your Makeup Application

The truth is you can stock up on all the makeup products your wallet can afford, but if you aren’t using them properly, you probably won’t see results. If fuller-looking lashes is what your eyes desire, then you might need to double check your makeup application. While it can be tempting to add a single swipe of mascara (especially on the days the snooze button calls your name), applying multiple coats in multiple directions is the key. Always remember to swipe the top of your lashes, then use the brush to stroke the lashes in towards the nose, out towards the hairline and then straight up! This ensure the lashes are completely coated. You can also use a liquid eyeliner or pencil eyeliner to tight-line your water line for a fuller-looking lash effect.

Got Protection? 4 Ways Your Morning Skincare Routine Can Help Protect Your Complexion

Share this:

Let’s be honest…sometimes we can take our skin for granted. As the body’s largest organ, our skin works overtime to help protect us from the dirt, oil and grime that our body is exposed to both morning and night. And as our first layer of defense against the outside world, it is important that we prep our complexion the way you prep an army going into battle (seriously)—starting with our skincare routine!

If you want to protect your skin from environmental stressors while helping to prevent the look of fine lines and dark spots, then listen up. Aloette is here to share 4 steps you need to add to your morning “defense” skincare routine:

  1. Use a Cleanser to Help “Detox”

Start your morning off right with a quick “reset” of the complexion. We all (hopefully) know why cleansers are a MUST in any skincare routine, but did you know that the type of cleanser you use is what truly changes the game?

If you are looking to amp up your skin defense during the day, try to incorporate a morning cleanser that helps “detox” the complexion. Washing your face in the AM with ingredients like charcoal or fruit enzymes will help draw out pore-clogging impurities while polishing away dry skin. Not only does this help prep your complexion for the rest of your routine, but it also helps cleanse away any dirt or oil that developed during your beauty sleep.

Our Pick: City Detox Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser| Just add water! City Detox is a fine-grained powder that transforms into a rich cleanser to help exfoliate the skin and wash away dirt, oil and makeup.

  1. Apply a Vitamin C Serum

There is good reason Vitamin C receives so much hype in the skincare industry. Vitamin C equals skin defense. It’s that simple! This antioxidant-rich vitamin is known to help improve the look of dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture—all while helping to brighten the look of skin and protect the complexion for the day ahead. The best part is that there are so many easy ways to add this ingredient into your skincare routine. If you want to help protect your skin from environmental stressors throughout the day, just add a Vitamin C serum or Vitamin C moisturizer into your morning skincare routine.

  1. Don’t Skip SPF

Sure, we might sound like a broken record, but there is a reason why EVERYONE in the skincare world preaches the importance of SPF. A good sunscreen helps shield your complexion from the UVA and UVB that can damage the skin and lead to early signs of aging. In fact, SPF is one of the simplest ways to help prevent fine lines and dark spots thanks to its ability to protect the skin from sun burn and future sun damage. So whether you are spending the day outside or indoors, make sure to apply a quality broad spectrum sunscreen to your face, body and hands.

  1. Set Your Makeup with a “Defense” Mist

Many of us like to lock our makeup in place with a hydrating setting mist, but why not lock your makeup in place AND help protect your skin? Ever since hitting the market a few years ago, setting sprays have quickly become popular for their long-lasting and multi-tasking abilities. If you want to add an extra layer of defense to your morning routine, try completing your makeup look with a lightweight mist that helps protect the skin from environmental stressors. How do you find such a mist? Simply look for a setting spray that contains ingredients high in Vitamin C and antioxidants–like Green Tea and Grapefruit Extract—to help protect the skin throughout your busy day.

Our Pick: Set + Shield Environmental Defense Makeup Setting Mist | The multipurpose formula covers skin in a lightweight veil of vitamin-rich ingredients that helps protect skin from environmental stressors, like pollution and daily grime.

Layer Up: Why You Need to Start Using Serums to Target Your Skin Concerns

Share this:

If you haven’t caught on to the current obsession with serums then it’s time to catch up. Serums are perfect for targeting specific skin concerns to kick your routine up a notch. Their lightweight texture allows them to seamlessly layer into your existing skincare routine. Looking for your first serum? We’re here to give you the rundown on the skincare step that everyone is raving about. 

How do I use a serum? 

Once you’ve picked the right serum, or serums, it’s time to figure out where they fit into your existing routine. This is actually much easier than you might think!  The standard is to apply your serums after you have cleansed and toned. An easy way to remember how to layer your skincare is to apply it from thinnest product to thickest. After you’ve applied your serums, you can finish off your routine with your favorite moisturizer.

What Serum Should I Use?

Brightening 

Has your skin been looking a little bit dull and tired lately? We suggest adding in a brightening serum to your routine to revive your glow. Vitamin C is an ingredient that you can count on for this problem. Our C-The-Light Vitamin C Serum is infused with five forms of Vitamin C – orange peel, lemon peel, citrus essential oils, mandarin orange and citric acid –  that will have skin appearing brighter, smoother and more even-toned. Need a little more oomph from your serum? Try Florabright if you’re also struggling with dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Anti- Aging 

Aging- it happens to everyone. There’s never a bad time to start adding anti-aging skincare into your routine, in fact some say the sooner the better. A serum is a great way to combat aging whether you’re getting an early start or you’re late to the game. Try our Face It Anti-Wrinkle Serum that is formulated with a sugar derived ingredient – Steviocide – to help relax the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for long term results as well as red algae extract and aloe vera to immediately lift sagging skin while soothing and conditioning the skin.

Skin Firming 

As your skin starts to age it starts to lose its firmness and you might start to notice less definition in areas like your neck and face. This is largely because as you get older you start producing less collagen- which is responsible for keeping the skin firm and tight. If this is something you find yourself struggling with this you might benefit from our Age Defiance Pro Serum. This innovative firming serum works to stimulate collagen and rejuvenate aging skin for improved overall radiance.

Once you go serum, you’ll never go back.

Got Wrinkles? These Are the 4 Age-Defying Skincare Habits You Need to Make, Now!

Wrinkles. Can’t live with them, would love to live without them.

It’s true that aging is a part of life’s beautiful process, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we necessarily jump for joy every time a new dark spot or wrinkle pops up across our forehead. In fact, we’re far more likely to begrudgingly scour the internet for latest tips and tricks on how to help turn back the hands (unfortunately, that discovery hasn’t been made yet).

The good news is that prevention and science are on your side…and so are we! Over the years, people have stepped up their lifestyle and skincare game when comes to caring for and investing in their skin. So, if you are indeed that person currently searching for the latest tips and tricks for better-looking skin, keep on reading for Aloette’s 4 Ways to Create an Age-Defying Skincare Routine:

Drink Up!

Water. Aqua. H2O. No matter how you say it, adequate water consumption is one of the most important ways to support your complexion from the inside out. Basic biology (and our mothers) tell us that water makes up a HUGE percentage of our body—so it only makes sense that it’s largest organ requires a tall glass of hydration to keep it looking it’s best. Not to mention, the older you get the harder it can be for your skin to retain moisture. So, fill up your cup and help drink your way to a total body refresh with nature’s simplest “ingredient”.

Apply Sunscreen

We get it—its winter, its cold, and our skin is practically begging to soak up any ounce of colour it can get. But, on your quest for sun-kissed skin, don’t forget that sunscreen plays a vital role in both the long term and short-term appearance of your complexion. While a stroll in the sunshine—especially in the cooler months—may seem harmless enough, it is important to take care and arm your skin with broad spectrum protection to help prevent dark spots, fine lines and future sun damage. Prevention is truly the key to age-defying skincare and slathering on sunscreen daily is a helpful way to help protect your skin (yes, even indoors).

Invest in Anti-Aging Skincare

This is our Aloette specialty. One of the many beauties of skincare is that it completely customizable to your wants and needs. If you’re looking for a skincare routine that can help prevent or improve the look of an aging complexion (hence, why you probably clicked on this article), keep an eye out for skincare products that include peptides and hydrating key ingredients—like Hyaluronic Acid. Why the focus on these skincare ingredients? Because both of these ingredients work below the surface to help improve the skin’s moisture barrier and promote a firmer-looking complexion—making them a must-have in an age-defying skincare routine!

Try: The Aloette Ageless Science System. Made with a rejuvenating peptide, this two-step skincare system features an Ionic Energy Balance Mist and Active Energy Serum to help boost absorption, quench skin with hydration and help reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles.

Moisturize

Are you starting to notice a trend here? Like we said, hydration is non-negotiable for anyone after a soft and smoother-looking complexion (I’m looking at you oily skin types). So, while you hydrate from the inside, make sure to also hydrate on the outside using a nourishing moisturizer. Start by applying a lightweight moisturizer during the day, then switch to a rich, preventative face cream at night. This will help ensure that your skin stays quenched underneath your makeup and nourished as you sleep.

Why You Need Vitamin C in Your Daily Skincare Routine

Share this:

Skincare trends may come and go, but Vitamin C is forever! Get to know the vitamin that everyone is talking about and discover Aloette’s skincare secret to more even, brighter and radiant-looking skin. You’re sure to C the Light!

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a skincare powerhouse, and there is a good reason this ingredient has taken the skincare world by storm. Think of it like a daily dose of OJ for your complexion. When feeling under the weather or flu season is looming around the corner, people tend to up their daily intake of Vitamin C to help keep health intact. Topically, Vitamin C works in a similar fashion for the skin. This ingredient is perfect for a year-round skincare routine—helping to protect the skin from environmental stressors in the summer and helping restore brightness to the skin in the winter. Vitamin C is available in many forms, including many serum, moisturizer, skincare booster and more.

What Are the Benefits?

Brightens the look of the Complexion | Featuring powerful antioxidant properties, Vitamin C can help brighten the look of skin over time. By helping to reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and uneven texture, this must-have ingredient works to help restore a radiant-looking complexion with each use.

Helps Protect the Skin from Environmental Stressors | The antioxidants in Vitamin C also help protect the skin from environmental stressors. Why is that important you ask? Well, environmental stressors can include anything from UV rays to pollution in the air. Vitamin C is a great preventative ingredient that has the potential to help protect against age-accelerating environmental stressors.

Helps Improve the Signs of Aging | Last but not least, Vitamin C contains age-defying properties. It helps improve the look of fine lines and hyperpigmentation, while helping to boost the skin’s natural barrier function. Overall, this helps promote the appearance of a more even skin tone and a softer, smoother-looking complexion.

So, What’s the Deal with C the Light?

Aloette’s C The Light is a unique Vitamin C Serum that is formulated with a special delivery system that helps boost your skincare routine. Infused with 5 different derivatives of Vitamin C—including orange peel, lemon peel, mandarin orange, citric acid and essential oils—this everyday serum help improve the look of skin tone while helping to brighten and smooth the look of skin. To work C the Light Vitamin C Serum into your daily skincare routine, dispense a pea-sized amount into your hands after your face has been cleansed and toned. Glide the serum across the face and neck. Allow product to dry, then apply your favorite serum and moisturizer to lock in ingredients and boost hydration.

Zits disappear overnight without any flaking or redness. I keep one in my makeup bag at all times!”

Stick Shift

“This is my go-to facial exfoliator that I use several times a week. I love how the formula lathers on wet skin. There are small physical exfoliators (diatomaceous earth) that polish effectively and never feel abrasive or irritating. My skin texture is noticeably smoother after every use. It’s also great for travel or for the gym!”

“My current favorite is the Ageless Science System. I keep both pieces in my skincare fridge and they are so cooling and soothing plus super hydrating without feeling heavy.

Beat Oily Skin With Aloette

Share this:

An oily skin type can be one of the most difficult to work with when it comes to skincare routines. It’s important to treat your skin with extra love and use products that keep pores from clogging so that you can avoid pesky breakouts. These are just three of our holy grail products to help you keep oily skin at bay.

 

Toner: Oil Control Toner

Our key ingredients in this toner are Aloe Vera, Rosemary Extract, and Witch Hazel. The Aloe and Rosemary add a special level of soothing and nourishing antioxidants. For some skin types Witch Hazel can be an ingredient to avoid. However, for oily and breakout prone skin types it can be a game changer. Witch Hazel is a natural astringent that has been used for decades to fight against excessive oil production and keep skin hydrated while doing so.

Moisturizer: Aloeclear Get Hydrated Oil-Free Moisturizer 

Moisturizers can be extra tricky when it comes to oily skin. Keeping skin hydrated is still just as important, but you might feel like it’s a step that makes your skin even more oily. This moisturizer was formulated to be oil-free, specifically for acne prone and oily skin. Get Hydrated moisturizer soothes the skin and helps reduce the appearance of redness while diminishing breakthrough shine from excess oil. A blend of Red Clover Extract and Niacinamide help improve skin barrier function and reduce the appearance of shine and pores. Your skin will thank you later! 

Spot Treatment: Made Matte Anti-Shine Stick: 

This is a must-have product for dealing with oily skin on the go. Made Matte is a versatile blotting stick that instantly mattifies and perfects without over drying skin, leaving you with a comfortable shine free look. You can use it as a mattifying primer before you apply your makeup or for on-the-go touch-ups as you start to get oily throughout the day. Breakthrough shine and excess oil doesn’t stand a chance against this formula!

Give Your Sensitive Skin the Special Treatment It Deserves

Share this:

All our products are already formulated with the best and cleanest ingredients for every skin type. However, we know that having sensitive skin means that you must be even more cautious about the ingredients in your skincare. We know that it can be exhausting trying to sort through products to find the very best. We made a comprehensive list of our products that are the very best for sensitive skin so that you don’t have to!

Cleanser: Gentle Foaming Cleanser

This cleanser was created with every skin type in mind! Our Gentle Foaming Cleanser can be used day and night to gently remove impurities without damaging your skin’s natural moisture balance. It, of course, contains our key ingredient Aloe Vera to hydrate and relieve dry and irritated skin. It is also packed with Vitamin A, C, & E to renew the skin and protect it from daily environmental stressors while Green Tea Extracts provide an extra boost of antioxidants. After using this cleanser, you will find that it cleans the skin without stripping it or leaving behind any redness like other harsh cleansers can do. This truly is a staple product for sensitive skin.

Toner: Sensitive Skin Toner 

Let’s dive into the incredibly soothing and hydrating ingredients that this toner is packed with, cucumber, chamomile, and Aloe Vera. Cucumber is like Aloe Vera in that it is incredibly hydrating and has a cooling effect on the skin. It is also filled with antioxidants that your skin just cannot get enough of. After cleansing, you can use this toner to provide extra nourishment while also gently removing any excess oils, pore clogging impurities, or irritants.

Mask: Beauty Parfait 

A common issue that those with sensitive skin can run into is dryness and inflammation. Sometimes, we suggest one to two times a week, you need to show your skin some extra love and use a face mask. Our Beauty Parfait is a blend of natural yogurt and papaya extracts that leave the skin looking calm, hydrated, and firm. Papaya Extracts also serve as a natural exfoliant to brighten the skin and remove dead cells. This mask is like a superfood smoothie for your skin, you’ll be glowing in no time! 

Moisturizers:  Nutri-Moisture Lotion   

Nutri-Moisture Lotion is the perfect complement to the Gentle Foaming Cleanser. It contains the same nutrient rich, calming ingredients like Aloe Vera, Green Tea Extract, and Vitamin A, C, & E. No matter what your skincare routine is, you need to have a moisturizer and we promise this is the perfect one! Always remember, hydrated skin is happy skin!

Spot Treatment: Stay Pure Acne Treatment Lotion

Pesky zits and small breakouts get the best of us all! Just because you have sensitive skin doesn’t mean that you should have to sacrifice your spot treatment. This treatment includes the typical treatment ingredient of skin-clarifying Salicylic Acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) known for its powerful acne-fighting effects, but it also contains Aloe Vera to help soothing. Salicylic Acid when overused can sometimes cause irritation to the skin. While this formula is created to benefit even the most sensitive of skin, we recommend only applying to those pesky blemishes one to two times a day.

Get shopping and start treating that sensitive skin, ASAP!
