Spoil Mom With These Top-Rated Beauty Tools

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, so if you’re strapped for gift ideas, we’re here to help! If your mom is always spoiling everyone in the family, why not take this day to spoil her? Sure, you could go the flowers and fruit baskets route, but why not go the extra mile this year and give her a gift she’ll be able to use year-round? If you want to make your mom feel extra special this year, check out some of the best beauty tools she’ll love.

T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers: These aren’t the hot rollers you might have used in the 80’s. These new and enhanced hot rollers were named a winner in Allure’s Best of Beauty and there are plenty of reasons for it. Made with T3’s powerful Tourmaline Technology, each roller is created with its own ceramic heater to give hair all-day volume, lift and shine. A velvet flocking gently grips hair and leaves behind beautiful shine.  This set of 8 large rollers comes in a luxurious compact case for easy traveling, too.


Clarisonic Opal Sonic: If mom already owns a Clarisonic Skin Cleansing Brush, then take her beauty routine to the next level with the Opal Sonic, specifically designed for the delicate under eye area. The gentle applicator on the Opal device allows you to work the Anti-Aging Sea Serum under and around your eyes to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using the opal daily will allow her other eye products to absorb better and give her satisfactory results.

The Season's Changed and so should your Skincare Routine

If you've noticed a change in your skin the last couple of weeks, you're not alone. The weather is slowly warming up with the changing season and that means it's time to re-evaluate your skincare products. Are you ready to spring clean your skincare routine? Follow these tips to keep your skin looking healthy.

1. Keep your skin hydrated and happy: When it's cold out, we tend to crank up the heat, causing our skin to feel dry and thirsty. Replenish the moisture you've lost during winter by hydrating your skin in spring. If it's feeling extra dry, pick up a treatment like Hyalo Plasma from Perricone MD. Three forms of Hyaluronic Acid will keep your skin soft, healthy and protected from dryness.


2. Load up on SPF: It's easy to become overzealous about spending time outdoors when the weather is a perfect 70 degrees outside, but don't forget your SPF. If you'e forgetful with your sunscreen, look for moisturizers, lotions and makeup that already has a built in SPF. Don't neglect your precious pout, either. Keep a tube of Sun Bum lip balm handy to keep your lips soft and protected.


Nighttime Skin Care Rituals to Follow For Better Skin

Achieving healthy-looking skin is is a full-time job and what you do at night can really make a difference in how your skin looks and feels. If one of your beauty resolutions is to take better care of your skin, then follow our nighttime rituals for beautiful and healthy skin. 

1. Remove your makeup thoroughly: Going to bed without taking your makeup off is a big no-no, so if you want to maintain healthy skin, be disciplined with this important skincare step. Make sure you thoroughly remove your makeup, too. Leaving traces behind can clog your pores and cause unwanted breakouts. Dermalogica's Precleanse will quickly dissolve your makeup and prep your skin for cleansing. Olive, Kukui and Apricot oils breakdown your face and eye makeup, leaving your skin refreshed and ready for the second cleanse. 

2. Boost cleansing with a skincare tool: Make your cleansing ritual more effective by giving your hands a break and letting a skincare device do the work. Both Clarisonic and Foreo LUNA offer your skin amazing cleansing benefits that will leave your skin glowing after each use.

3. Leave blemishes and pimples alone: When it comes to picking, the struggle is real. Experiencing a breakout is never fun, but you should always practice restraint when it comes to touching and poking at your face. Attempting to pop a pimple will only spread the bacteria and potentially leave a scar after. Kate Somerville's EradiKate Acne Treatment is great to use when skin starts flaring up. Formulated with Sulphur and Alpha Hydroxy Acids, this treatment will help keep your skin clear and free from imperfections.
