Earth-Friendly Skincare Lines

With the celebration of Earth Day this week, we're reminded of all the contributions we can make to better our environment and preserve the beautiful Earth we live in. Planet Beauty recently went green by eliminating paper waste and offering employees electronic access to pay stubs. Every little change makes a big difference and as a company, we're committed to any change that benefits the planet. To commemorate Earth Day, we invite you to check out some of our well-loved skincare lines who strive for change on a daily basis. 

Tata Harper Skincare: Not only is her skincare line 100% Natural & Non-Toxic, but all her products are produced and packaged right on her Vermont farm. This helps guarantee the quality of all ingredients and extensive research is conducted to continue improving the line. Tata Harper utilizes renewable energy to run their business, while using recyclable paper, glass and packaging materials for their products. This year, Tata Harper is partnering up with Maiyet and the non-profit organization Nest to raise money for Nest's Edible Garden Initiative, which will help the silk-weaving community of Varanasi, India. 

At-Home Peels with Power

If you get notifications from Groupon like I do, then you'll notice the growing popularity of medical beauty procedures being offered left and right. Chemical peels are just one of the many procedures many Americans are curious about because of their amazing results. However, considering a chemical peel requires extensive research because of the risks that can potentially arise from the procedure. It can be overwhelming and costly. With the growing interest in these types of treatments, many great skin care brands have launched their own peels that are safe to use and still produce wonderful results. I'm personally always a fan of treatments I can do in the privacy and comfort of my home. If you're looking to shake up your skincare routine, check out some of our favorite peel products.

Dr. Perricone's Blue Plasma is a non-acidic daily peel that gives you the results without any redness or irritation. This innovative product is created to remove dead skin on the surface with Bio-specific peeling. Micro-extraction helps lift surface debris to unclog and purify skin while Hydro-fusion helps restore skin's hydration. Salmon Roe enzyme and Copper improve skin's luminosity while plumping fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin looking radiant and healthier. Blue Plasma can be used every day for maximum results and is a no-rinse product. Follow up with one of Dr. Perricone's moisturizers. 

Before you skip out on moisturizer...

Finding the right daytime moisturizer can be such a challenge sometimes, especially when your skin fluctuates between oily and not-so-oily on a daily basis. With the weather getting warmer, a lot of us our spending more time outdoors. Unfortunately, sometimes doing so can really affect your skin, especially if you wear foundation. There’s nothing worse than having a good makeup day melt off of you. Sure, you used that wonderful primer and light foundation. However, if the moisturizer you used in the morning was too heavy, you can find yourself looking quite greasy by 2 pm. 

If you consider your skin to be combination, Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturizer SPF 15 not only hydrates skin, but provides your skin with chromabright and vitamin B3 for a beautiful, luminous finish. If you want your daytime moisturizer to provide even more anti-aging properties, then I highly suggest one of my personal favorites from Dr. Perricone. Face Finishing Moisturizer really transforms your skin with alpha lipoic acid, DMAE and Vitamin C Ester. Packed with antioxidant protection, this 2oz jar will help increase firmness while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C Ester improves skin’s luminosity, providing the perfect canvas for makeup.
