Best Father’s Day Gift Ideas For Health And Wellness

Father’s Day is Sunday June 18, 2017 – what does the man in your life need for his special day? Make this the year that you leave behind boring standbys like socks and ties for exceptional gifts that boost his health and wellness. Whether it’s the natural goodness of Eminence Organic Skin Care or the perfect hammock for some downtime, here are our favorite recommendations for the best Father’s Day gifts this year:

BEST HEADPHONES FOR EXERCISE

Whether Dad is training for a half-ironman or wanting to get back to the gym with the help of his Sworkit fitness app, he needs light-weight earphones to keep moving! We love the Bose SoundSport wireless headphones for Father’s Day because they’re sweat-resistant, stay securely in the ears and connect wirelessly.

HANGING HAMMOCK

Make sure that Dad takes mental health breaks this summer with a cozy new hammock. If he’s fond of the occasional outdoor snooze, he probably has his eye on the ENO Doublenest Hammock – spacious for one but roomy enough to handle an extra kid or two napping with Dad.

FITNESS TRACKER

Help Dad stay healthy with a Father’s Day gift idea like the Fitbit Flex 2. We’re hooked on this slim-fitting wristband that counts daily steps, tracks exercise and keeps a sleep record. The most fun feature? The Fitbit lets you join an online fitness competition with Dad and you can cheer him on!

SKIN CARE FOR MEN

Don’t forget that Dad’s skin needs attention as well and there’s nothing more healthy than natural, organic and Biodynamic® skin care for the man in your life. We know that men secretly love facials and spa treatments – why not book him at an authorized Eminence spa or pick out an easy at-home skin care routine for your Father’s Day gift idea?

CLEANSE

Men love our best-selling Eminence Organics Citrus Exfoliating Wash to cleanse and exfoliate in a single fuss-free step. The invigorating citrus smell makes this a must-have in the shower.

TONE

Turn to our popular stone crop ingredient with Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist for your man. Movie star dad Hugh Jackman used this toner on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, keeping his complexion fresh and hydrated yet matte.

MOISTURIZE

Keep the skin biome healthy with a dose of Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer. Enriched with “good” probiotic bacteria, this moisturizer improves the look of problem skin and balances hydration.

For an extra boost to a basic skin care routine, add this mixology of Eminence Organics Balancing Masque Duo and Sour Cherry Masque – formulated for men’s complexions:

2 Eminence Organics Skin Care Routines You Need This Summer

 

With days growing longer and temperatures heating up, it’s time for a summer skin care overhaul. And changing up your skin care routine for the season calls for more than just slapping an extra layer of sunscreen on your face. A summer skin care revamp means rethinking your routine to protect yourself from different types of skin damage and seasonal dryness.

In order to help you, we’ve designed two daytime skin care routines – one essential and the other enhanced – from Eminence Organics products specially selected for the season. Read on to learn more about the Eminence Organics Skin Care Routines for Summer:

THE ESSENTIAL EMINENCE ORGANICS SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR SUMMER:

1. CLEANSE 
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Cleanser – Target dark spots from the summer sun with Eminence Organics Bright Skin Cleanser. Our two actives, Gigawhite™ and Natural Hydroquinone Alternative work to brighten the appearance of your skin while you cleanse.

To help prevent summer skin problems, use our Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser as an alternative cleanser.

2. TONE
Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist – Unlike drugstore toners, Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist doesn’t contain alcohol that dries the skin. Instead, this hydrating and softening spray restores moisture for a smooth and toned finish. A celebrity favorite, the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist has won over fans like Alanis Morissette who declares, “I never leave home without my hydrating mist.”

3. MOISTURIZE
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Moisturizer SPF 30 – One of our best-selling products, Eminence Organics Bright Skin Moisturizer not only hydrates the skin but also brightens with Gigawhite and Natural Hydroquinone Alternative. When you consider that the Bright Skin Moisturizer also contains a protective SPF that defends the skin from UVA / UVB / UVC rays, you’ll agree that you have the perfect summer moisturizer.

As an alternative SPF moisturizer to protect, hydrate and help reduce the visible signs of problem skin all summer long, use our Eminence Organics Red Currant Protective Moisturizer.

Although this essential summer skin routine covers everything you need, you can also add any of the following products to elevate your summer skin care experience.

THE ENHANCED EMINENCE ORGANICS SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR SUMMER:

EXFOLIATE
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel – This results-oriented peel solution reduces the look of uneven skin that can develop over the summer. Lactic and mandelic acids gently remove dead skin cells for a brighter looking complexion.

MASK & TREAT
Eminence Organics Bright Skin Masque – Continue treating your complexion with the VitaSkin Bright Skin Solution and Eminence Organics Bright Skin Masque. Winner of the Best Mask in The Fashion Spot Earth Day Beauty Awards 2015, the Bright Skin Masque evens out skin tone for a luminous and glowing complexion.

As an alternative face mask to improve the appearance of problem skin, use our 5-time award winning Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Masque.

PREVENT & CORRECT
Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum – A powerful re-hydrator for skin dehydrated by the summer season, Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum restores moisture so the skin appears plump and smooth. A favorite of Madonna, the Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum is a summer must-have for supple, silky skin.

Additionally, you can always prep your skin for a day in the sun with our award winning Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum, which reduces the appearance of the visible signs of aging. Just be sure to apply one of our SPF Sun Care products before heading outside.

EYE CARE
Eminence Organics Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream – Cool down for summer with the Eminence Organics Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream and its refreshing metal rollerball applicator. Like the cast in the popular 50 Shades of Grey and 50 Shades Darker movies, you’ll fall in love with this eye treatment that instantly lifts and tightens.

LIP CARE
Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 – One of the most overlooked body parts for sun care, the lips need just as much protection from sun damage. With our new Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm, a swipe of this protective lip treatment defends the vulnerable lip area from full-spectrum UV rays. Then, keep working on those luscious lips while you sleep by using the award winning Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm overnight.

COSMETICS
Eminence Organics Vanilla Latte Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25 – Soften and protect skin with this antioxidant-rich, non-clogging tinted moisturizer. Perfect your look with this lightweight sheer coverage and a natural mineral zinc finish for SPF 25 sun protection.

BODY CARE
Eminence Organics Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen SPF 32 – With your summer skin overhaul complete for your complexion, it’s time to turn to body care for the summer. Since sun protection is the first priority, Eminence Organics Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen is your most important product for long summer months. Moisturize and revitalize from head to toe with this sunscreen and protect your skin from UVA / UVB / UVC rays. To help your skin recover overnight, reduce the appearance of redness and rehydrate by using the Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator for Face & Body.

Prom Makeup Tips From Eminence Organics

Prom season is here, and if you’re scrambling for the best prom makeup ideas for yourself or someone you know, you’re not alone.  Whether you’re after a glamorous or more natural makeup look for prom, the key to pretty makeup is gorgeous, glowing skin. Here are a few Eminence Organics beauty tips to help you get ready for prom night.

PREP YOUR SKIN WITH A FACE MASK

For prom makeup that lasts all night, you can’t skimp on skin care – and the best way to achieve long lasting results is to give your makeup a brilliant base. To achieve a gorgeous glow, we recommend ditching your redness-inducing DIY face mask and prepping your skin with a natural, organic Eminence Organics mask.

Rising runway star and high-schooler Delilah Hamlin (pictured left) tells ELLE that multi-masking is one of her secrets to glowing skin: “Literally, everyone knows that if they’re going to FaceTime me at night, I’ll have a mask on. My favorite brand is Eminence Organics.” Delilah’s favorites include Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Masque and Strawberry Rhubarb Masque. With career cues taken from the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, it’s no surprise this stunning model is on the rise – and we’re thrilled that Eminence Organics is part of her skin care routine!

PERFECT A NATURAL PROM MAKEUP LOOK

The key to perfecting natural prom makeup is to use natural cosmetics. If you’re after sheer coverage and a natural finish, we recommend applying Eminence Organics Vanilla Latte Tinted Moisturizer (also available in Caramel Latte). This lightweight formula softens and protects skin for a smooth and bright complexion, without the aftermath of a pore-clogging foundation.

For long-wearing coverage and a silky matte finish, set your base with Sun Defense Minerals (available in six shades). Tip: apply a shade darker than your complexion to the top of your forehead, down your cheekbones and along your jawline for a sunkissed look.

Give your lips maximum hydration with the award-winning Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm. If a plump, glossy look is more your style, try Eminence Organics Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper. This Vogue favorite contains invigorating cinnamon oil and hydrating jojoba oil for a naturally plumped pucker.

DON’T FORGET THE ESSENTIALS

Before running out the door, toss Eminence Organics Green Tea & Hemp Blotting Tissues into your clutch. These ultra fine tissue paper sheets absorb excess oils and moisture on the face to keep your complexion perfectly matte all evening long.

MAINTAIN YOUR YOUTHFUL GLOW

Stay forever young and take preventative action against the early signs of aging. Care for your complexion past prom night with the Eminence Organics Youth Shield Collection, including Eminence Organics Red Currant Exfoliating Cleanser, Red Currant Mattifying Mist, Red Currant Balancing Concentrate, Red Currant Rapid Infusion Masque and Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF 30. This collection protects and hydrates your skin’s appearance to prevent the visible signs of aging – before they begin.

Get Prom Perfect Skin!

The weather is warming up and prom season is just around the corner!  For a rundown on how to get that “prom perfect” skin, Teen Vogue consulted A-List facialist Joanna Vargas. According to Vargas, if you want “a pristine complexion, you’ll need to plan accordingly!” because “good skin doesn’t happen overnight”. Here’s a couple of great suggestions from Joanna on how to prep your skin for prom.

Four weeks before:

This is the time you should start to be “more diligent with your beauty routine”. “It’s important to be exfoliating at least twice week” Vargus says. Her favorite scrub for teens is our Citrus Exfoliating Face Wash.

One Week Before:  

“This is the perfect time for a full body exfoliation to really get glowing”. She recommends our Coconut Sugar Scrub.

Even if prom isn’t your thing – it’s important to remember that a good skincare routine is vital for a healthy, glowing complexion. In the words of Joanna Vargas – “your skin is a reflection of both your mental and physical health as well as the products that you’re putting on and taking off of it on a daily basis”. Now that’s great skin advice!

How To Exfoliate: Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant Vs. Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™

With countless fans who are celebrities, make-up artists and beauty editors, our award-winning Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant has quickly become a cult classic. If this coveted exfoliant is already part of your beauty arsenal, our new Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ will take your skin care routine to the next level. But don’t swap out your beloved Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant just yet. Here’s why this classic favorite and popular newcomer are better together.

LARGE VS. SMALL PARTICLES

If you’re after the smoothing action of a physical exfoliant, the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is probably one of your go-to products. The particles in this best seller gently slough dead cells from the skin’s surface, for a perfectly buffed complexion. The particles in the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ are finer, giving them the ability to zero in on hard to reach spots and reveal a clean and refreshed complexion.

POWDER-TO-PASTE VS. POWDER-TO-FOAM

Adding water to the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant creates a creamy paste that gently exfoliates to smooth your skin’s texture. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant is a powder-to-foam product that generates a light, fizzing action to release oxygen onto your skin’s surface, invigorating your complexion and bringing it back to life.

POLISHING VS. DEEP CLEANING

The Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant cares for the surface of your skin, sloughing away dead cells and buffing its texture for a smooth, flawless looking finish. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ is your anti pollution solution – it de-gunks clogged pores by softening impurities that have accumulated throughout the day and harnesses the power of potent microgreens to protect against the aging effects of environmental stressors.

HOW TO USE THEM TOGETHER

To experience the benefits of both exfoliants, we recommend using the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant in the morning to smooth and prep your skin and the Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant™ at night to remove dirt and grime that collects during the day.

5 Spring Color Trends to Try by Jane Iredale

We could name a thousand things we love about beauty, but one of our favorite things are the trends. In fashion, we often feel like the best trend is no trend at all, but in beauty, experimentation is part of the fun. Sometimes, trying new trends is less about purchasing the newest product formula and more about trying new color combinations. So, let’s talk about five of the coolest color trends for spring 2017.

Spring 2017 Beauty Color Trends

Color Trend #1: Brown

spring 2017 color trends, brown lipstick

How to Wear It: On your lips! It may sound very 90s, but brown lips are back and it looks amazing on every single skin tone. From chocolate to pinky nudes, brown is every where you turn. Our trick to wearing this trend without going overboard is to choose a shade that is slightly darker than your natural lip color.

Try this: Lisa PureMoist Lipstick; add a subtle pink to the lipstick by layering Pink Lip Pencil or Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain underneath it.

Color Trend #2: Peach

spring 2017 color trends, monochromatic peach makeup

How to Wear It: Peach is one of our favorite colors for spring because you can wear it all over your face in both matte and shimmery textures. If you want to try this monochromatic look, we recommend creating a subtle gradient peach eye makeup look and then keep your cheeks and lips natural with just a hint of color.

Try this: Peaches & Cream Bronzer; mix and match the four peachy shades to create different eye makeup and blush looks.

Color Trend #3: Mauve

spring 2017 color trends, mauve eye shadow

How to Wear It:  We like to give our complexion and overall glowy effect by creating a smokey mauve eye makeup look. Create this simple look by applying a light mauve shade to the lid, then adding drama with a darker wine tone or even a deep brown. You can also use a mauve nail polish for the perfect transitional manicure for spring.

Try this: Soft Kiss PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple; this eye shadow trio has all the necessary shades required to create the perfect mauve smokey eye look.

Color Trend #4: Blue

spring 2017 color trends, blue eye liner under eye

How to Wear It: We’ve said it before, but blue eye makeup is the IT trend this spring, and we promise it can be chic and completely work appropriate. Our favorite way to add a little blue to our look is to line our bottom lash line with blue eyeliner.

Try this: Midnight Blue Eye Pencil; read this blog post to find out how real women wear blue eye makeup.

Color Trend #5: Pink

spring 2017 color trends, draping, blush explosion

How to Wear It: Can you say blush explosion? No, we aren’t talking about the woeful moment when you accidentally drop your blush while multi-tasking in the morning. This is a playful way of describing our favorite spring trend, draping. What is draping? It’s a technique that uses blush instead of bronzer to contour.

Try this: Susan PureMoist Lipstick and Pink Quartz PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple; go all out by pairing your rosy cheeks with a touch of pink to the eye and lips.
