Beauty Prep 101

It is back to school time, but we aren't hitting the books in this lesson. We are hitting the beauty shelves. A clean foundation is everything when it comes to beauty. You need to prep your face, body, and hair for wherever your beauty routine takes you. These are some of my favorite beauty products that will prep you to look your best.

You must remove yesterday's makeup every single night! Make things easy with derma e Makeup Remover. This fragrance-free, oil-free formula utilizes natural actives to safely remove makeup, including waterproof varieties.

For a brighter, more youthful looking complexion use Josie Maran Argan Exfoliating Cleansing Powder. This Cleansing Powder gently lifts dead skin. The finely crushed Argan shells gently buff away dull skin while rice powder helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes and age spots! Just dispense a quarter-sized amount into wet hands, or mix with Argan Cleansing Oil in palms. Rub hands together to activate the powder and create a creamy paste. Massage into skin using circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry to reveal skin that is completely cleansed, fresh, and renewed.

For clean skin on the go, try Josie Maran Argan Bear Naked Wipes in Travel Size. These argan-infused wipes give you dewy, bare, makeup-free face in a flash with just one wipe. And the pampering, moisturizing effect lasts, making your skin soft and touchable even when you are a weary traveler!

Have sensitive skin? Try Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes with Cotton Extract. All it takes is one simple step to kindly remove your make-up, while cleansing and toning your skin. Lovingly created with Cotton Extract to soften your skin, Rice Extract to moisturize and Aloe to soothe, each natural towelette is as gentle as gentle can be.

Don't forget about your pores! Sit back and relax in style with Bioré Limited Edition Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. Each of the eight colorfully designed deep cleansing pore strips pull out dirt and oil that can cause blackheads. Selective bonding agents lock onto and lift deep-down grime, oil and blackheads leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean. When used weekly, Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips not only decongest your pores, but help minimize their appearance.

Achieve clear complexion perfection with Tammy Fender Purifying Cleansing Gel Formula No. C-121. This clarifying and oxygenating formula will energize the skin. Revered for centuries as traditional herbal remedies, spearmint is known as a master cleanser. Not to mention is smells and feels fantastic on the skin! Alfalfa is recognized as the father of all foods. This power duo effectively cleanses impurities, detoxifies and balances the skin, leaving the complexion thoroughly clean and radiant. I wish I had the full size. This stuff is awesome!

If you are looking for a facial-in-a-jar, Tammy Fender Epi-Peel Formula No. E-517 is an award-winning multi-tasker. Pure Moroccan Rosemary, Far West Native Spearmint and purifying clay are the active constituents in this advanced tri-purpose micro-exfoliating mask and peel. Dampen fingertips and with circular motions gently massage a small amount onto a cleansed skin. Allow to dry and remain on skin for 5 minutes. Remove with moist cloth. May be used 2 to 3 times weekly.

Sheet masks are a must-have for beauty prep. Masque Bar by Look Beauty has you and your skin covered with a lineup of hydrating sheet masks. The Look Beauty Apricot Face Sheet Mask is a skin moisturizing treatment blended with Apricot Extract, Collagen and Vitamin E. It helps exfoliate, moisturize and nourish the skin leaving you feeling beautiful and refreshed.

Are your feet in need of some TLC? The Look Beauty Intensive Moisturizing Foot Mask is a sock-type mask that noticeably smooths, softens and repairs dry, cracked, calloused feet and heels. This will significantly improve the look and feel of even the driest feet.

Take control of stressed out skin that has spent too much time in the sun this summer with the BioRepublic Aloe Rescue Revitalizing Fiber Mask. Formulated with natural aloe vera juice, this biodegradeable sheet mask provides immediate hydration to dry, dull skin. It also contains moisturizing Vitamin E  and allatonin, which help to repair damaged skin. 

Redness, peeling, stinging - ouch! Whether we want to believe it or not, these are all signs of sensitive skin. Sustainable Youth Anytime Lift Eye Treatment is a lightweight eye treatment serum that lessens the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles without irritating this delicate area. Dark circles are minimized, as is under-eye puffiness. Eyes appear lifted, and a cooling effect upon application makes eyes feel instantly refreshed. The fast-absorbing topical serum can be enjoyed anytime you need a lift, under or over your make-up, day or night. This pure natural formula is gentle enough to use over and over, providing soothing, lifting comfort.

The gentle emerginC citrus-kombucha body wash deeply cleanses, while improving skin tone, moisture and radiance. It is formulated with kombucha, a fermented tea which aides in improving fine lines and wrinkles, reducing inflammation and irritation in the skin. While grape stem cells help fight photo-aging and protect skin stem cells from UV stress. Aloe delivers soothing properties to help calm irritation and replenish moisture, while spirulina, a “super-food” loaded with phytonutrients, nourishes, re-mineralizes, energizes and improves skin function. Talk about a multi-tasker!

Feel the refreshing clean of Seba Med Face & Body Wash. Formulated to gently deep clean pores, it is hypoallergenic and soap free for the most sensitive skin. Fortified with a natural moisturizing complex of vitamins and soothing allantoin, it rinses away completely for healthier, smoother, hydrated skin. PH balanced, it also offers a natural defense to pollution and environmental toxins, while remaining gentle and non-drying. My husband has very sensitive skin, and this works fantastic for him! No more itchy red bumps!

Key West Aloe’s new Aloethera line uses hydrating Aloe Vera as the foundation. This quenching line of hair, skin, and shower products contain natural ingredients that nourish the skin and hair, purely as nature intended. Whether your skin is burned and blistered or dry and chapped, Key West Aloethera will restore hydration and beauty where you need it! Try Key West Aloe Aloethera Body Wash to refresh, soften, and moisturize even the most sensitive skin. It smells so pure and fresh too! Use Key West Aloe Aloethera Moisturizing Shampoo to restore hair’s natural vitality while adding body and shine to locks. Then follow with Key West Aloe Aloethera Keratin Conditioner to tame frizz without weighing down hair. Made with 10% Aloe and Keratin Formula, this condition is designed to strength, protect, and smooth all hair types.

No time to shower and style your hair? Check out KMS California HAIR PLAY Makeover Spray. This split-second style refresher, absorbs oil and builds bulk to refresh limp or day-old styles. Great for quick style touch-ups and in-between shampoos and a must have to keep in your bag for whatever your day may bring.

Finally, keep your hair free from fly-aways and humidity with KMS California Hair Stay Anti-Humidity Seal. The 24-hour humidity-blocking formula provides heat and frizz protection, so your weekend won’t get ruined! It leaves you with a worry free with a shiny, weightless finish!
