Valentines’ Day Beauty Rituals

A Valentine’s Day date with your special someone can be an exciting time to anticipate; especially if you are both busy! This Valentine’s Day get in the mood by creating a Valentine’s Day beauty ritual to help ignite the passion in your body and mind.

Mud and Scrub
Start your ritual off in the shower with a full body mud mask, such as the JAFRA Spa Mud Mask, which combines clays, Vitamin E and antioxidants to help deeply cleanse your skin and remove any toxins. Follow it with a luxurious body scrub. Look for one that combines sugar or salt with moisturizers; your skin will be super clean and feel silky soft.

Soft, silky hair
Dry, rough or  product-heavy hair can be very unromantic. While you’re in the shower, shampoo and condition your hair as normal and apply a moisturizing hair mask, like JAFRA’s Moisture Replenish Hair Mask, to make hair soft and manageable. Follow with a nourishing hair oil to add shine and sexiness.

Feel feminine with fragrance
The right scent can change your mood and your date’s as well! After you are done in the shower, spritz your favorite romantic fragrance on your key pulse points - behind your neck, inside of your wrists, and behind your knees. You can even spray your perfume into the air and walk through the mist to smell fabulous from your head to your toes. Look for romantic fragrances that contain floral scents, like Paris et Moi from JAFRA, a feminine fragrance which blends rose with silky woods for a sophisticated and alluring scent.

Glow from within
The last step in your Valentine’s Day ritual is to create a lit-from-within glow perfect for a romantic candle light dinner! Create this look by applying a cream highlighter under your foundation. Apply to your cheekbones, forehead and the outer corners of your eyes. Use a sponge to blend foundation all over your face for a dreamy look. Go with a moisturizing lip gloss for a kissable pout; lipstick can be too intimidating. Sweep a sweet, cream blush across your cheeks and finally, curl your lashes before applying a couple of coats of mascara to finish your look.

Valentine’s Date Night Movies

Valentine’s Day is upon us and while this annual celebration of love is usually associated with a night out on the town, the simple truth is it can be just as romantic,  if not more so, to stay in.

5 Rules for Saving Your Skin’s Most Vulnerable Area

The skin around your eyes is different from the skin on other parts of your face and body. Since it is thinner and lacks as many oil glands as, say, your nose or forehead, it is more fragile and more easily damaged. It’s no coincidence that we show signs of aging first around the eyes.
For perspective, consider this: On average, the skin around your eyes is .05 millimeters thick, whereas on the soles of the feet it is as much as 5 millimeters thick—the eye area is one hundred times as thin, in other words. No wonder it doesn’t stand up well to rubbing, pulling, and harsh cleansing!
As with many things in life, it’s easier to prevent damage to that delicate skin than to try to fix it afterward, so here are 5 rules that will help you save your face’s most vulnerable area:
Hands off.
The less you pull and rub the skin around your eye area, the longer the skin holds onto its youthful elasticity, meaning less premature sagging and wrinkling.
If you have nasal allergies that make your eyes itch, troublesome contact lenses, or a bad habit of rubbing your eyes frequently, address the problem and fix it!
Sunglasses, always.
It doesn’t matter what the weather is doing: If you are outside during the day, you are being exposed to the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. Sunny or hazy, UV rays get through to damage the skin.
Your first line of defense is a pair of sunglasses appropriate to the weather conditions. Make sure the lens and frame are large enough to fully cover the undereye area. Wrapped styles are best for fully sheltering the skin from exposure.
Bonus: Protecting the eye itself from UV exposure slows down the formation of sight-stealing cataracts.
Wear sunscreen.
After your sunglasses, your second line of defense against UV exposure is an SPF of at least 30. Apply a small amount of sunscreen carefully around the eye socket, avoiding the eyelids. Pat it on gently, don’t rub.
Skip exfoliation.
Don’t use products that contain exfoliating grains, foaming cleansers, or use any kind of scrubbing tool around the eye. This isn’t a part of your face that needs a lot of cleansing, other than makeup removal.
Find a remover formula that will allow you to wipe away the day’s makeup with only one or two swipes. A drop or two of baby oil or similar product on a damp cotton pad works well. You might even consider using a drop of baby shampoo on a wet cotton swab to wipe along the eyelash line, because this has the added benefit of helping to prevent the irritating inflammatory eyelid condition known as blepharitis.
Once your eye makeup is off, continue with your normal evening beauty ritual.
Choose the right products.
You want to use a richer, creamier specialty formulation around the eye because of the skin’s dearth of oil glands there. Opt for eye crèmes that boost hydration, since this area needs extra moisture. It’s when you are dehydrated that dark eye circles are most noticeable.
Likewise, look for a product that contains peptides, protein molecules that help rebuild the natural collagen, improving firmness and minimizing wrinkles.
It’s fine to use products that reduce undereye puffiness or darkness, too, but pat them on very gently with the tip of your finger rather than vigorously massaging them in.

Effortless Looks For The New Year

Easy elegance is everywhere as we head into 2017 – a trend that makes adapting as effortless as it sounds. Whatever your closet contains, rest assured, being chic has never been so simple.
Shift your shoes…
It’s a miracle! Or at least it seems like one. For the second year in a row sneakers are on top of the footwear trend list, suggesting it’s not just smart, but chic to relinquish uncomfortable high heels in favor of softer soles… for day wear, at least. Glitter, satin, leopard, and other fabrics and prints provide plenty of options to stay stylish and maximize comfort.
Not into sneakers? Well worry not, because next up on the shoe trend tree are kitten heel mules. They have just enough boost to make you feel sexy, but all the comfort of a flat, if not more! Mules are a great option for those who want to be on trend without sacrificing too much flirty femininity.
Mix and match
Love it or hate it, the athleisure trend is sticking around, but that doesn’t have to mean wearing your Pilates pants to the office. Nailing this trend can be as simple as pairing a structured button down with your matte Lycra leggings, or donning a blazer with a super soft t-shirt and jeans. It makes the transition from spin bike to boardroom a little more seamless.
Stripe yourself
From classic French tees to flowing high-waist pants, adding stripes of any form to your wardrobe will freshen up your look. Pinstripes, particularly the vertical variety, are slimming, while thicker chalk stripes have an artsy vibe, sliding them straight into a museum-inspired trend.
Skip the skinnies… or at least add to them
While skinny jeans have reigned supreme for the better part of a decade, more classic, straight-leg and wide-leg silhouettes have been pushing to make a comeback for a few seasons now.This just may be the year that it happens. Add a few different denim cuts to your closet for an instant, of-the-moment upgrade.
