    Why Is Everyone Talking About Jade Rollers?

    It seems like there’s a new beauty trend around every corner, and the jade rolling obsession is no exception. While the benefits of facial massage are fairly new to us, it’s been used for centuries in Chinese culture to stimulate lymphatic drainage and toxin release. If you’re looking to learn more about the popular skincare tool or you’re just hearing about it, we’re laying out all the whats, whys and hows for you below.

    The Benefits

    Sure, rolling a smooth stone over your face feels glorious, but does it actually do anything for your complexion? You bet. Using a facial roller encourages drainage of the lymphatic system to help release toxins that may cause skin conditions. It also helps to br

    Sleep Deprived? Here’s How to Fix Puffy Eyes, Stat

    We’re willing to bet that the majority of the population doesn’t get 8+ hours of sleep per night (us included). But how do some people look bright-eyed at all times? They likely use one, or all, of these depuffing tricks on the reg. Here are four puffiness remedies that fake a blissful night’s sleep, even if it was more like an extended nap.

    Green Tea

    And we don’t mean drinking it (although you could do that, too). Green tea is full of antioxidants and depuffing elements, and when cool tea bags are placed under your eyes, the leaves help to alleviate that dreaded puffiness. The caffeine helps to shrink blood vessels around your eye, brightening dark circles; antioxidants add a glow; and tannins

    5 Ways to Beat a Winter Cold

    We don’t hate winter, we just hate what comes with it: horrible, dreadful colds. As if the sniffling, sneezing, and general grogginess isn’t bad enough, it often brings on a whole slew of skin issues from a dry, chapped nose to dehydrated skin. And while we aren’t doctors, we do have some tricks up our sleeves for fending off colds, and in turn, the inevitable skin stressors. Here, five ways to kick a winter cold to the curb.

    Drink plenty of water

    We’ve always heard that we should drink eight glasses of water per day. But that number is actually much h

    5 Ways to Banish Chapped Lips for Good

    Name one thing that ruins a perfectly good lipstick like dry, flaky lips (we’ll wait). Nothing? Our point exactly. Since we’d prefer not to give up our lipstick-wearing for all of eternity, we decided to take matters into our own hands and come up with an easy five step solution to banishing chapped lips once and for all.

    Step 1: Drink *Plenty* of Water

    We’ve all heard the “rule” that we’re supposed to be drinking about eight glasses of water a day. But what exactly is a glass and is it the same for everyone? Not exactly. Sure, striving for eight water refills a day is a great jumping off point, the number goes up depending on height, bodyweight, and if you sweat, workout, eat salty foods, and more. Without getting too scientific, we just like to drink more water tha

    5 Skincare Resolutions You’ll Actually Want to Make

    Love resolutions? Don’t believe in ‘em? Either way, the start of a new year is the perfect time to reevaluate your routines. But don’t go crazy thinking about what healthy skincare habits you should adopt this year, because we already did that for you (your skin can thank us later). Here, five easy tweaks that will make 2019 your best, glowiest year ever.

    1. Unplug from technology

    Step away from Instagram and pick up our SmartMud mask instead to detoxify your face and your mind. We all spend way too much time on our phones (and thanks to Apple’s new time-tracking feature, we know just how bad it is). But even swapping in an alternate activity for a few minutes a day can bring on some serious Zen. Take a few minutes to meditate, read, or listen to music while you let the mask do it’s t

    How to Avoid Drying Out This Winter Without Sending Your Skin Into a Tizzy

    We did it! We made it to the start of a whole new year, full of glowy skin promises and healthy choices. But it is winter after all, so those dewy dreams may need a little extra help. What we need now is an easy skin routine that refreshes like a tall glass of water, but won’t cause us to go into oil overdrive. Here’s our dream-come-true combo of products and tricks for hydrating dry winter skin without causing a pore panic.

    Start from Within

    We all know it: what you put in your body (we’re looking at you, 3rd glass of wine) can affect your skin. Start by eating balanced, nutritious foods with plenty of good fats (seriously), and avoiding too much sugar and alcohol. And of course, drink water like there’s no tomorrow.

    Hot Off the Press: Our Newest Mask Is a Perfect Ten

    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
