What Are The Skin & Health Benefits Of Mangosteen?

Discovering the new Eminence Organics Mangosteen Lactic Collection can be a delight for the senses: Antioxidant-rich mangosteen infuses the creamy textures with pretty peach tints and a delicious, tangy scent. One hit of the exotic superfruit is a heady experience and there’s no coincidence that this superior key ingredient is called “The Queen Of Fruits.” Prized for its complex flavors and scents, the mangosteen also grants amazing health benefits and protects the skin. Here are all the reasons why you need to know more about this exquisite fruit:

HISTORY OF MANGOSTEEN

Although it sounds similar to the mango, the mangosteen is not, in fact, related at all. The size of a small apple, the mangosteen is covered in a purple, leathery rind which protects the sweet, white fruit inside. Discovered in South East Asia by 19th century European colonists, the mangosteen won its title of “The Queen Of Fruits” from Queen Victoria. Rumor has it that the Queen heard about this precious fruit, which was a delicious mix of “lychee, peach, strawberry and pineapple flavors” and declared that she would grant a knighthood to anyone who brought her one (National Geographic).

SKIN & HEALTH BENEFITS OF MANGOSTEEN

Not only can the mangosteen boast a royal connection, the fruit is also valued for its high antioxidant concentrations. Mangosteen juice is all the rage, and the much-touted health benefits of the fruit stem from  the type of antioxidant found in the fruit, especially in its rind. These antioxidants are categorized as rich and biologically active xanthones (Men’s Health). Recommended in multiple studies – including a study from the University of Illinois – xanthones are a focus for cancer treatment and prevention (Dr. Axe). Xanthones also protect against heart attacks and bolster the immune system. Besides its antioxidant value, mangosteen’s nutritional profile also provides additional health benefits by helping control blood sugar levels and aiding the digestive system.

For the skin, the mangosteen has traditionally been used for a number of conditions, including eczema. The all-important xanthones protect the skin in multiple ways with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. By capturing free radical compounds, they prevent environmental damage to the skin while anti-inflammatory benefits further protect skin cells from destruction. Besides using xanthones to defend the skin, the fruit also promotes microcirculation which improves the appearance of skin vitality and radiance.

EMINENCE ORGANICS MANGOSTEEN LACTIC COLLECTION

Harnessing the benefits of mangosteen, we are proud to launch the Mangosteen Lactic Collection this season. Formulated to address the root causes of dull and tired looking skin, the collection combines the superfruit with our proprietary Lactic Acid Complex. Together, Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing ConcentrateMangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser and our professional use only Mangosteen Lactic Pro Peel 10% refine pores, gently exfoliate and treat the skin, unveiling a naturally luminous complexion.

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.
