If your hands are already a little worse for wear just a few weeks into fall, we’re with you. The truth is, hands need just as much (if not more) care as the skin on our faces. We rely on them for everything, so it’s about time we gave them the R&R they deserve. That’s why we created our new Perfect Ten Self-Warming Hand Mask—and why we plan to use it as the first step in our at-home mani routine all season long. Want in on the self-care? Here’s how it’s done, in three simple steps.
First up: The hand mask
You know the old trick where you slather lotion on your hands and stuff them into gloves before bed for softer skin by morning? Our new mask is sort of like that, but much quicker thanks to a little thing we like to call science. Using the same insulation tech
Oh, dark circles. Basically everyone has them and everyone hates them (sorry, not sorry). Sometimes, no matter how many hours of blissful, undisturbed sleep we get, they never seem to fade. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce the newest member of our eye gels family. Meet, FlashPatch Illuminating Eye Gels.
To really understand how these babies work, we must first ask one question: What the heck are dark circles and why won’t they leave us alone? Here’s the gist:
Dark circles are caused by a number of different factors, but the four most common are genetics (thanks, Mom and Dad), age, sun exposure, and seasonal allergies.
Pumpkin-latte-fueled all nighters (or one too many Oktoberfest pints) making a trip to the spa today seem like just too much? Follow this guide for that feeling of accomplishment, even on your laziest day.
Grab your robe, it’s time to move from the bed to the couch. Apply a pair of FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels while you enjoy your coffee and bagel–extra cream cheese, please. Your eyes are most likely looking a little puffy due to dehydration, and could use some TLC. Because skin in the eye area is super thin, when moisture is lacking, it really shows.
To up the cooling sensation, store your eye gels jar in the fridge. Listen for the faint choir of angels when you apply.
Be honest: you hit the snooze button instead of attending your morning spin class again. (We won’t tell your instructor, promise.)
Getting good sleep can be as important as diet and exercise to your body. It boosts your immune system, keeps depression at bay, and gives your skin cells a chance to regenerate. If you have a hard time saying goodbye to your cozy bed in the morning, here are 4 tricks to help you speed up your morning routine.
1. Wake up with a whiff of peppermint
Studies show that the scent of peppermint oil can increase alertness, so you can crush your morning conference call. Grab an essential oil, light a candle when you wake up, or sip peppermint tea to get those feet moving.
2. Let the sunshine in
It sounds simple, but waking up to natural light may be just t
Let’s talk about lactic acid. As a member of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family, lactic acid occurs naturally in your body as well as in fermented dairy products like yogurt, cottage cheese, and milk. We like to think of lactic acid asthe Supergirl of skincare, sloughing away dead cells and nourishing your skin without causing any irritation. By stimulating exfoliation and skin renewal, lactic acid provides anti-aging benefits and helps you achieve smoother, brighter looking skin. And who doesn’t want that?
Alongside a moisturizing mix of coconut, soy milk, and green tea, the lactic acid in ourFlashMasque® 5 Minute Milk Peel makes dead skin virtually disappear. And we don't cal
Are your detox masks conspiring against you and causing unwanted breakouts? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Keep reading for the solution to your woes.
First things first, you need to understand why this is happening. When you detox, the dirt and oils in your pores are pulled to the surface of your skin. Since they’re coming from deep within, this can cause clogged pores. As a result, your skin can freak out a bit.
That’s the not so great part, but fortunately we’ve come up with a three day masking solution for you.
Day 1: After washing your face, apply the SmartMud No Mess Mud Masque. Remove the mask after 10 minutes and rinse your face. Follow-up with the rest of your nighttime skincare regimen.
Day 2: Keeping your skin hydrated post-mud mask is key. Use the FlashMasque
Whether or not you’re still a teenager, Breakouts. Will. Happen. Hormones, stress, diet, and even pregnancy can mess with your skin. When we designed Breakout Box, we wanted to give you a way to fight back against unexpected blemishes, with 3 powerful treatments for anything that pops up on your face.
Start packing, Pimples
You’ve got a big event coming up where you need to look radiant. You’ve been eating right, exercising and taking care of your skin, but just when you least expect it… an uninvited guest shows up.
Oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria hang out in your pores all the time. Usually, they aren’t much of a problem, but if the clogged pore becomes inflamed, a pimple is born. As soon as you see the redness, stick on a Pimple-Shrinking Sali
Both products contain anti-aging ingredients that smooth fine lines for a more youthful face by morning.
Retinol + Peptides = ❤
This magical combo is responsible for making all of your skincare dreams come true. Retinol speeds along the production of new skin cells and helps fade dark spots. Peptides are an anti-aging ingredient that help your skin produce collagen. With continued use, your skin’s elasticity will be improved and your complexion will be looking fresher. That’s what we like to call a win-win.
For some, it’s a welcome routine that helps you unwind after a long day. For others… it’s just one more chore to get through before you can finally flop into bed. No matter how you look at nighttime skin care, there are a few things you should do before turning out the lights.
Do… wash your face.
You don't need every lotion, cream, and gel under the sun for an effective nighttime regimen. BUT, you do need to clean the day off your face. Makeup and dirt can really do a number on your skin overnight. If you don’t have the energy to lather up, try our Clean AF Cleansing Wipes. We made it easy on you: just unfold, wipe, toss, and you’re done. No rinsing required.
Did this brutal winter keep your toes in hibernation mode? Us too. Thankfully, we’ve come up with the perfect regimen, so you can set them free in the upcoming summer heat.
First things first, you’ve got to prep. Take a look at your calendar and make sure that you’re two weeks out from your BFF’s wedding, annual girl’s beach trip or anywhere else you’ll be showing off those toes—and maybe put yoga and pilates classes on hold. We also suggest holding off on this treatment if you’ve just gotten a shiny new pedicure. In order for PoshPeel to work its best, you’ll want some rough patches on the bottoms of your feet.
Once your schedule is a go, it’s time to soak and scrub. This will get your feet ready for their best peel (and give you some prime Netflix time).
Next up, you will want to trim and shape those nails. To maximize comfort, keep toenails flush with skin. No
