Back To School: Eminence Organic Skin Care Tips For Students & Moms

Whether you’re a student or parent, back to school season is a hectic time of fresh starts and new timetables. While you reorganize your fall schedule, why not refresh your Eminence Organics skin care routine as well? For students, we’ve put together a routine that you can pick and choose from to kick off your school year right. For moms, we have a couple of back to school skin care tips for busy parents. Make this season a successful start to the school year with re-inspired skin care for the whole family.

BACK TO SCHOOL SKIN CARE ROUTINE FOR STUDENTS

After a long summer break, you want to return to school looking your best and making sure your complexion absolutely glows. That means protecting the youthful look of your skin, balancing oily areas and stopping school-stress breakouts! Here are our suggestions for Eminence Organics products to introduce to your skin care routine:

1. CLEANSER – Eminence Organics Red Currant Exfoliating Cleanser

Formulated with our exclusive Youth Shield Complex, Red Currant Exfoliating Cleanser both hydrates and invigorates the skin. This two-in-one step for both cleansing and exfoliating purifies easily congested youthful skin and helps speed up busy school mornings.

2. TONER – Eminence Organics Stone Crop Hydrating Mist

Balance your skin with this revitalizing and hydrating toner infused with nourishing stone crop. If your complexion tends towards a shiny look, Stone Crop Hydrating Mist leaves your skin appearing fresh and matte.

3. MASK – Eminence Organics Balancing Masque Duo

The Charcoal T-Zone Purifier draws out oil, dirt and bacteria and leaves a smooth and matte appearance to the complexion.Deep clean and refine pores with our Balancing Masque Duo, especially formulated for combination, oily and problem skin.

4. MOISTURIZE – Eminence Organics Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF 30

Our Red Currant Protective Moisturizer from the Youth Shield Collection refreshes the complexion with sustained release tea tree oil, reducing the visible signs of problem skin. SPF 30 protects against the aging effects of broad spectrum UV rays, keeping your skin looking youthful.

5. TREAT – Eminence Organics Clear Skin Targeted Treatment

School = stress, which often reflects poorly on your skin. When stress-related breakouts pop up during back to school season, you’ll need Clear Skin Targeted Treatment to control problem areas for fast and effective results.

BACK TO SCHOOL TIPS FOR MOMS

Reorganizing the fall schedule can be frantic for moms, as well as for students. If you’re a mom who needs a skin care reset during this busy time, our Lead Skin Care Trainer, Natalie, has the perfect mixology for you:

Together, the combination gives your skin a rosy and rejuvenated appearance. A delightful back to school treat for moms, this mixology will re-energize your skin during a hectic season.

Looking for even more “me time”? With the kids finally back to school, now’s the time to book that facial at your favorite authorized Eminence Organics spa.

The Eminence Organics Guide To Microgreens & Their Health Benefits

If you’ve heard the term “microgreens”, you may have wondered about these tiny trending plants. You’ve walked past their little bobbing heads at your supermarket, seen them piled up on plates at your local eatery, and they’re even showing up in the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection

What’s the big fuss about something so small? With Earth Day around the corner, we’re here to walk you through the microgreens phenomenon and help you find out more about these environmentally friendly plants and their health benefits in food and skin care.

WHAT ARE MICROGREENS?

Microgreens are exactly what they sound like: small and green! They are simply mini plants – like broccoli, radish or clover sprouts – that are harvested in their seedling stage before they reach maturity. Planet-friendly because they require few resources, microgreens are ready to go in 14 days or less. These cute little leaves are intensely flavored and add a zesty accent to salads, sandwiches and even soups.

MICROGREEN HEALTH BENEFITS

Besides adding flavor to your plate, microgreens deliver nutrients to your body. According to a study by the US Department of Agriculture, the leaves of almost all microgreens have “four to six times more nutrients than the mature leaves of the same plant.” As USDA researcher Dr. Gene Lester points out, “All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, and fighting cancer and have all sorts of benefits associated with them.”

EMINENCE ORGANICS MICROGREENS DETOX COLLECTION


While eating microgreens provides potent nutritional benefits, using microgreens in your skin care products further enhances those healthy effects.

The new Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection harnesses the powerful actions of these leafy ingredients to cleanse and protect the skin from drying environmental stressors with these three products:
1. The Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil restores balance and removes impurities.
2. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant brightens and invigorates through exfoliation.
3. The Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment revitalizes and detoxifies dry skin with a lightweight gel cream.

Together, this capsule collection uses microgreens and ingredients like stonecrop to target the drying effects of pollution on the skin. Find out where you can buy the Eminence Organics Microgreens Detox Collection at your nearest Eminence spa.

MICROGREENS, ROASTED BEETS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD RECIPE


To experience the natural potency of microgreens both inside and out, you can introduce them in your diet as well as add them to your skin care routine. We love this recipe that tosses together tender microgreens with sweet roasted beets and the rich flavor of goat cheese:

INGREDIENTS:

Salad:
3-4 beets (we used golden beets)
⅓ cup goat cheese
2 cups microgreens

Dressing:
3 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 TB white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Wash beets thoroughly. Wrap each one individually in foil, place on baking sheet and roast for 45-60 minutes.
2. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Unwrap each beet and peel the skin which should slip away easily, then cube.
3. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and toss with microgreens gently.
4. Crumble goat cheese on microgreens and top with beets.

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.

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.

Alicia Keys Adds Another Éminence Product To Her Coveted Skin Care Routine

With fifteen GRAMMY wins under her belt, a recurring spot on TV’s hottest talent show and a trending #NoMakeup movement, Alicia Keys is at the top of her game. We were thrilled to discover Éminence is the key to keeping Alicia’s skin sparkling – and even more excited to hear she has added another one of our results-driven products to her coveted skin care routine.

When Alicia first revealed her fresh-faced complexion, we weren’t alone in clamoring for her skin care secrets. Into The Gloss, ELLE, W Magazine, PopSugar and SELF are just a few high profile publications that have featured the natural beauty’s favorite products. Most recently, Allure got the scoop on what Alicia’s makeup artist, Dotti, uses to give the star her radiant glow, saying “They make us soft. They make us glow. They promise beauty, and boy, do they deliver. But what our favorite products (or, in this case, Keys’) do best: They make us smile.”

After cleansing Alicia’s skin and applying a mask (our refining Clear Skin Probiotic Masque is one of The Voice judge’s favorites), Dotti applies our Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm to “up the dewiness of Keys’s skin” (Allure). This ultra-rich balm is infused with rosehip oil to improve the skin’s moisture, tone and texture, as well as lemongrass (a natural astringent) to minimize the appearance of pores, revealing a picture perfect complexion. To complete Alicia’s look, Dotti turns her attention to the star’s lip area, dabbing on a clear balm to keep her pucker perfectly moisturized. She tells Into The Gloss that our three-step Lip Trio Kit does wonders for Alicia’s lips, keeping them deeply hydrated and camera-ready.

Alicia says of embracing her barefaced complexion: “One thing I’ve heard more than ever is this glow that people refer to that I have. I kind of recognize that glow because I’ve begun to listen to myself inside. And I think there’s something really powerful that happens when you start to listen to yourself. It makes you feel more aware. In touch. More confident. …And that’s taken a little minute to arrive at that place. But there’s definitely something powerful about the way your inner feels that reflects on the outer, on your skin. That, to me, is real beauty.” We couldn’t agree more.

We are incredibly proud that Alicia uses Éminence to celebrate her natural beauty. Which Éminence products are part of your makeup-free routine? Tell us in the comments below.

Surprising Ways To Use Our Apricot Body Oil: Part 2

Here are three alternative ways to use our Apricot Body Oil that you might not have expected:
Not just for backrubs, the Apricot Body Oil is also fantastic for dry, rough body parts including elbows and knees. As good as the best body lotion for dry skin, this rich body oil sinks moisture into your dry, winter-ravaged skin and smooths out rough problem areas.

CONDITION DRY HAIR ENDS
Don’t restrict this oil to just skin care! If you suffer from thirsty, damaged hair ends, our Apricot Body Oil can step in as your emergency intensive hair conditioner. Just dab a few drops of the oil on hair ends to rehydrate and repair.

TREAT RAGGED CUTICLES
Nails and cuticles tend to suffer during harsh winter months, developing a ragged and unkempt look. If you find your cuticles desperate for a little TLC, rub in a drop of Apricot Body Oil to smooth them out and nourish your nail beds. Your nails (and hands!) will look sleek again in no time.

With so many uses for our versatile Apricot Body Oil, now’s the time to experience it for yourself. Just for Valentine’s Day, our award-winning oil is available in limited edition rose gold, lace foil packaging. Perfect for a gift – or to spoil yourself.

How will you be using your Apricot Body Oil? Let us know in the comments below.This post was written by Karen Young Chester from Eminence Organics.

Surprising Ways To Use Our Apricot Body Oil: Part 1

If your mind and body are struggling with the winter blues and chilly weather, turn to our Apricot Body Oil to invigorate your senses and soothe your skin. A Vogue, ELLE and Marie Claire favorite, this award-winning body oil blends fragrant apricot, moisturizing grape seed and hydrating jojoba oils for skin that is irresistibly smooth and supple from head to toe. Boxed in gorgeous, limited edition Valentine’s Day packaging, it’s the perfect gift for your sweetheart.

Warm this luxurious oil in your hands for a deeply hydrating, sensory massage – and if your blissful state leaves you craving more, try these unexpected ways to incorporate Apricot Body Oil into your body care routine.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, we can think of nothing more romantic (and downright relaxing) than a massage with our award-winning Apricot Body Oil. But when you’re done loosening up those tight shoulder muscles, you’ll find that this luscious body oil isn’t just miraculous for rubdowns and can be used in other surprising ways.

GIVE YOUR BODY LOTION A BOOST

Mix 1-3 drops of Apricot Body Oil with your favorite body lotion for an ultra-rich treat. We recommend pairing it with our Coconut Firming Body Lotion – another ELLE favorite – to deliver intense hydration to aging skin. The coconut, shea butter and grape seed oil in the Coconut Firming Body Lotion leave skin looking tighter and firmer, while the apricot kernel oil and jojoba oil in our Apricot Body Oil leave it feeling exquisitely soft and smooth. Massage into dry hands and elbows for an extra dose of long-lasting moisture.

RELAX IN AN AROMATIC BATH

For an all-over skin conditioning treatment, add 1-2 capfuls of Apricot Body Oil to your bath. Dim the lights and close your eyes for an indulgent aromatic experience. Muscles tired and aching after a rigorous workout? Add 2 cups of Epsom salts to your apricot-infused bath for ultimate relaxation. Once emerging from your heavenly soak (if you can!), smooth a few drops of Apricot Body Oil onto slightly damp skin for deeper penetration of this luscious oil’s feel-good ingredients.

SLOUGH OFF DRY WINTER SKIN

Say goodbye to dry and flaky winter skin by mixing a few drops of Apricot Body Oil with two shakes of Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. Rub your hands together to create a creamy paste and apply it to dry areas as a gentle all-over body scrub. The rice powder and lactic acid in the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant slough off dead skin cells and buff skin texture to leave it looking perfectly polished, while the Apricot Body Oil adds a dose of deep hydration for gorgeous, velvety skin.
