Dr. Perricone's No Makeup Products are Here!

The long wait is over, dedicated Perricone users! The No Makeup products have finally arrived at Planet Beauty and we can't wait to show you how amazing this range is. If you've already fallen in love with No Foundation Foundation, you've really only begun to scrape the surface. For anyone looking to enhance their skin with minimal makeup, this line is heaven sent. 

If you love your No Foundation Foundation, then make space on your vanity because you're also going to want to add the No Foundation Foundation Serum to your arsenal of Perricone products. This serum does more than provide coverage. It's packed with some of the best anti-aging ingredients to make your skin look better with each use. Neuropeptides keep your skin looking firm and supple. Vitamin C Ester helps correct blotchy skin tone, while optical diffusers combat the look of red, blue and yellow undertones. Fine lines and wrinkles are minimized with the power of Alpha Lipoic Acid which a non-chemical SPF 30 shields your skin from UVA and UVB rays. All it takes is three to four drops, but you can customize your coverage by adding more or pairing it with your No Foundation Foundation. When used alone, you'll have a semi-matte suede finish that is both natural and flattering. 


NYFW 2015 Beauty Trends To Follow

New York Fashion Week 2015 brought us some great beauty trends this year, from fresh takes on makeup to inspired on-the-go hairstyles. There is so much beauty inspiration to take from New York Fashion Week, so I compiled a list of the five easiest trends to recreate at home. 

1. Minimalist Makeup: From Marc Jacobs to Donna Karan, models on the runway sported very little (if any) face makeup, letting their natural skin shine through. Whether you have freckles or slight imperfections, I dare you to be bare. Two products that are perfect for this trend both come from Dr. Perricone. If the thought of being without foundation scares you a bit, pick up No Foundation Foundation. This will give you slight coverage, while allowing your skin to look natural. If you just want a glow without coverage, Dr. Perricone's new Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint is the perfect au naturel skincare must-have.

2. Subtle Smokey Eyes: If you've always steered clear of the smokey eye, don't. A subtle smokey eye requires less work and still looks fabulously chic. There are different ways to achieve a subtle smokey eye. Choose colors that are on the gray and brown side and use soft strokes with application. You can also achieve a subtle smokey eye by simply keeping the darker color to the outer corners of your eyes only. Smashbox's Full Exposure Palette has every perfect color imaginable for the best smokey eyes, whether they're dramatic or subtle.

Prevent Aging Eyes in Your 20s

Whenever I sit customers down for eye makeup application, the first question I tend to ask is, "What eye cream do you use?" The response I usually get from my customers in their late 20's and early 30's is silence. At first, I was always surprised by this. Then I realized it made perfect sense. After all, most commercials and magazine ads target more mature women for anti-aging products. So, it made sense that someone in their late 20's wouldn't even be looking at eye cream. I only started using eye cream because my mom always emphasized preventative skin care to fight aging. If you're between 25-35 and thinking of adding an eye cream into your skin care regimen, check out some of my top picks. 

1. Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado: This customer-favorite is the perfect beginner's eye cream. It's super creamy and moisturizes the delicate under eye area with ingredients like Avocado Oil, Beta-Carotene and Shea Butter. Ophthamologist and Dermatologist-tested, this eye cream is gentle enough for those with sensitive eyes. $28

2. Perricone MD's Hypoallergenic Firming Eye Cream: If you're starting to see little crow's feet showing up or battle dark circles and dryness, this eye cream is a must-have. Made with a powerful blend of antioxidants, Tocotrienols and Neuropeptides, this eye cream doesn't mess around. Olive Polyphenols offer rich antioxidant benefits, while Tocotrienols fight dryness to nourish the eye area. Neuropeptides work to restore firmness and elasticity, leaving eyes wonderfully hydrated. $65

Get out of your Post-Holiday Funk!

Now that the holiday season is officially over, it's time for a head to toe detox to get you looking and feeling better for 2015!  Between the endless cookie trays and champagne, you may find yourself feeling quite sluggish and puffy these days--don't worry, it happens to a lot of us. This month, treat yourself to a beauty detox and get back on track to feeling great.

It's easy to neglect water during the holiday season. After all, what sounds better than hot chocolate on a cold day? Unfortunately, a lack of water can cause surface dehydration on the skin, which can make it look dull and flaky. Start increasing your water intake this month and look for a treatment mask to help brighten your skin up. If your skin is feeling dry, you'll want to search for a good hydrating mask to help. If your skin is in major need of a clarifying treatment, try a mud mask that will help detox your skin from impurities. 

Between getting your hair colored, using heat styling tools, extra hairspray and styling products for perfect holiday hair, your hair can end up feeling kinda gross. Give your hair a detox by using a sulfate-free clarifying shampoo and condition it with a treatment mask for beautiful, more manageable hair. It won't hurt to book an appointment for a trim if you couldn't stop curling your hair last month. 

Sun Recovery Must-Haves for Summer

Summer vacations always bring much needed joy and relief from hectic schedules and busy lives. Nothing is more fun than spending a little time out by the pool or beach, soaking up vitamin D and spending time with family and friends. However, sometimes we overindulge in under-the-sun fun, leaving our hair feeling a little dry and our skin looking a little dull. Check out some of our favorite summer beauty fixes to keep your skin and hair looking beautiful all season long. 

Sunburns happen more often than we'd like to admit. If you've ever dozed off while laying out by the pool or simply forgot to re-apply sunblock, then you've probably experienced a sunburn or two. We all know that terrible burning, itchy feeling of discomfort. You'll do anything to end the painful experience. If you find yourself sunburned this summer, check out Dermalogica's After Sun Repair. Our featured product for June, we know this healing, lightweight gel will come in handy for our sun-loving friends. Ingredients like cucumber, aloe and rose flower oil help to soothe irritated skin, offering a cooling relief, replenishing moisture and minimizing redness. Once summer is over, you can even use this after waxing treatments year-round. 

More than Makeup Products

We are always in search of that amazing product that does more than its basic job. We love beauty products with multiple purposes, and having added benefits can really make a difference in our beauty routine. Aside from the instant gratification we get from makeup, we crave products that are going to help maintain our natural beauty, as well. If it's time to change things up in your makeup bag, check out these high-performance Planet Beauty favorites.
