Love Your Skin

Best products and rituals to pamper yourself with

For this article, we’re sticking to the surface with self-love! Why not take this opportunity to show your skin some affection? Pour yourself a bath and follow these five steps to lovelier skin:
 
1. Start at the Top
The best part of any trip to the spa is the scalp massage. Bring the luxury home with a Scalp Massage and Hair Treatment. Your scalp is skin too, so it needs moisture like Shea Butter, vitamins and wheat protein. Soak in the tub and let the aromatherapy take hold as you hydrate and relax from head to toe.
 
2. Get Dirty
It’s not necessarily fancy, but faces love mud. There’s nothing like a good Dead Sea Mud Musk with minerals, antioxidants and vitamins to get your skin going. It’s a time-honored way to purify, unclog pores and slough off dead skin cells. In fact, don’t stop at your face, get your neck and décolletage in the mix as well!
 
3. Body of Evidence
No night of pampering would be complete without showing neglected skin the love it needs. Don’t leave the tub without using some Ginger & Sea Salt Body Rub first. The sea salt will gently exfoliate while moisture-rich ginger root extract hydrates thirsty skin.
 
4. Give Yourself a Hand 
Take your at-home spa experience up a notch – especially during hold weather --with a hand scrub. JAFRA’s Hand Scrub with Jojoba Beads exfoliates, repairs and moisturizes skin with soybean and olive oil. Potent antioxidants keep your hands looking young and Vitamin B gets in deep to help sooth chapped or cracked hands. It’s the perfect prevention of premature aging before you say goodnight.
 
5. Seal It In
After all that exfoliating and soaking, you need a great moisturizer to lock in the benefits. Towel off and put on some Royal Jelly Extra Soothing Balm. It has Manuka honey, cacao butter, and of course, Royal Jelly, to soothe skin in seconds. For your hands, apply Night Care for Hands, made with Shea, cocoa and red mango seed butters to hydrate and condition your hands and cuticles. It leaves behind the ever-so-relaxing scent of saffron and lavender to take you right to dreamland, happy and hydrated. 

Same Tricks, New Skin

Old beauty tricks to keep in your routine

As a new season approaches, we’re taking stock of our beauty dos and donts; making a list of what works and what doesn’t. Here are some of the tried and true ingredients and treatments that made the cut:
 
Go for the Gold
Gold has been used for beauty treatments by the Romans, Egyptians and Japanese for centuries. It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to restore skin’s firmness. It has been said that Cleopatra used a gold mask every night to maintain her complexion and give her glowing, radiant skin. Each evening, apply a serum infused with gold ferment to your skin, such as JAFRA’s Gold Dynamics Ultra Nourishing Gold Gel, to help regenerate dormant skin cells and refine your skin’s texture. Consider treating your skin to one of these luxuriously beneficial treatments this year.
 
Take a Dip in the Mud
Another ancient beauty treatment that has made it through the ages is the use of Dead Sea Mud. Another favorite of Cleopatra and Queen Sheba, Dead Sea mud has a high concentration of minerals (more than any in the world) as well as anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. It’s great at removing dirt and toxins from the skin. Try a full body mud mask treatment, like JAFRA’s Mud Mask, which contains Dead Sea mineral mud and antioxidants to clean deep and remove impurities.
 
Find Your Oil
Though beauty oils have become popular again in the last few years, they’ve been used throughout history. The ancient Greeks used olive oil to moisturize their skin and hair; just as we do today. Not only does olive oil provide penetrating moisture, it also contains strong antioxidants that can help the skin renew itself after damage from environmental stressors. Similarly, almond oil has been used since pre-Biblical times to keep skin soft and supple. Pamper your skin this year with body treatments infused with these tried and true oils, such as JAFRA’s Royal Olive Body Oil and Lotion or JAFRA’s Royal Almond Rich Body Oil.
 
Live Like a Queen (Bee)
Royal Jelly is a substance produced by worker bees to feed to the queen bee in a hive. It is why she is larger and stronger than the rest of the bees. Royal Jelly contains complex B vitamins, minerals and enzymes and has antibiotic and antibacterial properties that make it helpful in scar treatment. It was used for health and beauty by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians (Cleopatra was a beauty boss!) and by rulers in Asia. This year, take your beauty to the next level by incorporating this miracle ingredient into your skin care regimen. Try JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Ritual products, which contain their exclusive RoyalActive Peptide. The Royal Jelly Global Longevity Balm is a great test run for falling in love with this natural wonder. 

Beauty Picks 2018

Must have products for the New Year

2018 may have just begun, but there’s already a host of new and exciting beauty must-haves. For a heads up on what’s hot, look no further than this pretty little list right here.
 
Golden Glow
First and foremost, highlighter is here to stay. Glowing, iridescent skin is everywhere this year, but this time, gold is your go-to. It’s an extremely versatile shade that works on any complexion. Don’t be afraid to mix and match with other metallics, either! All shades remain on trend for 2018, including shimmering, futuristic lipsticks.
 
All Lined Up
Good news, liner lovers! Black eyeliner is making a high-drama splash for 2018, especially the liquid variety. Lay it on thick top to bottom or go for a classic cat eye if you’re feeling chic. The trick this year is to round off your wing, instead of going for a sharp, straight line.
 
Major Mascara
When it comes to lashes, 2018 is not for understatements. High volume mascara has made a serious comeback, gracing the faces of every model in sight. If you’re feeling adventurous, embrace a Twiggy-inspired, chunky lash look. It’s not quite sixties hippie, but it’s just enough of a throwback to feel fresh and exciting.
 
Between the Sheets
2017 was the year of the sheet mask and complexions the world over will be eternally grateful. Now, you can enjoy the same rejuvenation for your hair. Hair sheet masks give your tresses a powerful dose of hydration and a new line of moist wipes instantly infuse your locks with beneficial vitamins and nutrients!

Beauty Resolutions

Beauty habits that take little effort, but pay off big

A new year approaches and with it comes the annual commitments to live a better life. There’s nothing wrong with resolving to do better, of course, but we want to offer a shout out to simplicity. There is something to be said for a simple resolution. After all, the simpler it is, the more likely you are to do it. With this is mind, here are five simple, but very beneficial beauty resolutions:
 
Stop the Beauty Hoarding
We wish we could tell you to donate those 15 tubes of lipstick you haven’t worn since high school, but you really just need to toss them. Makeup has a shelf life and can harbor bacteria if you use it beyond the ditch date. There is a general rule that mascara should be replaced every three to six months. Lipsticks and eyeshadows last a couple of years. But even if you’re not decluttering for health reasons, resolve to clean out what you don’t use. Tossing something you don’t need can be cathartic, plus, getting rid of what you don't need makes room for what you do need (and a few things you want).
 
Commit to Sunscreen
Find a sunscreen that works for you and make it a part of your daily regimen – not just during the summer, but year-round. Many products have skin enhancing ingredients beyond standard sunscreen. Think of this as a nonnegotiable, long term relationship. It only requires only about 30 seconds of effort a day, so it’s a pretty manageable courtship. You can also apply sunscreen your décolletage and hands daily, since they’re especially sensitive to the signs of aging caused by the sun.
 
Develop a Drinking Habit
That’s right, drink up! For proper hydrations, say yes to good old-fashioned H2O, green tea and coconut water. In fact, one of these drinks should be your constant companion. Pass on sugary sodas with loads of caffeine and keep the alcohol to a minimum. Simple, right?
 
Sleep!
In some cultures, sleep is as important or even more important than consciousness because it’s viewed as the key time for emotional and psychological growth. What we know for sure it that beauty sleep is a real thing. Skimp on sleep and you’ll never look your best, so get to bed! Most women need 7 to 9 hours of shuteye.  Visit the National Sleep Foundation for healthy sleep tips.
