For Your Eyes

To conceal dark circles apply a cream concealer like our H&H Photo Touch Concealer with the H&H Double-sided Concealer Brush and blend it in with the H&H Makeup Sponge Brush.

To make your eyes look more wide awake, curl your lashes and give them a few swipes of our H&H XLXL Mascara.

For puffiness, use our H&H 24K Gold Eye Patches to plump, lift, firm and brighten the appearance of your skin while delivering hydration to the under eyes.

For Your Nose

For dry and scaly skin around the nose, exfoliate and moisturize. Our H&H Brightening Cleanser both exfoliates and cleanses to smooth out skin. It’s also packed with antioxidants including vitamins A, C, E and green tea to help reduce redness.

For your Skin

If your skin is red, add a little green tea to your skin care routine. Our H&H Green Tea Cream or Green Tea Serum are great ways to reduce inflammation and redness, as well as caffeine to tighten and firm the skin.

Post Spring Break Tips

The months prior to spring break are usually spent dieting and the gym to prepare for your time at the beach. Once break begins, it’s easy to lose track of your health. Now that spring break season is over, it’s time to get back in the swing of things! Getting back to living healthier and practicing good health habits are the best way to stay on track! So, if you’re looking to get back in the swing of things, here are some quick and easy tips!

Exercise

Exercise is a great way to kick start your body into burning energy, having clear skin and detox toxins from the inside out. Start by simply taking a walk around the block every day after you get home, or doing a 10-minute free workout video from YouTube. Like the saying goes, no one ever regrets his or her workout after.

Hydrate

After traveling and flying, your body can become dehydrated and your skin can become dry. By simply staying hydrated through out the day (not just at mealtime) you’ll increase your body metabolism and help maintain healthy skin. Try a fun travel mug or glass water bottle to remind yourself to replenish every couple of hours.

Fuel

It’s important to get back on a healthy food regimen after a week of eating out, eating junk food on your road trip and drinks in the evenings. Try eliminating processed foods and lowering the amount of sugar and friends foods you eat will leave your feeling more energized, complimenting your new exercise routine. By simply being more aware of the things you are eating and limiting your intake of unhealthy foods will help immensely. Also, make sure to either continue or begin taking vitamins. Our H&H Clear Skin Vitamins are great at keeping your skin clear from the inside out, along with our H&H Probiotic Vitamins are optimal for your digestive health.

Rest

Get some rest! Many of us miss hours of valuable sleeping time during spring break. A lack of sleep can result in a slower metabolism and unwanted weight gain. To function fully during the day, opt forgetting 6-8 hours of sleep every night. By maintaining a healthy sleep schedule, you’ll feel more energized, have a stronger immune system, focus more, and be able to stay in shape when you have more energy.

Clean

As we all just want our suitcases to magically disappear once returning from vacation, its important to take the time to properly unpack everything, wash all your clothes and clean all your toiletries and makeup. Don’t forget to clean all your makeup brushes and sponged too! Try our best-selling H&H Heart Shaped Brush Cleaner for this task.

Guide to Green Beauty

With Earth Day on April 22nd, we’d like to share a few tips in helping you make the switch to leading a more eco-friendly lifestyle this year. By making these small changes, it can go a log way in helping Mother Earth breathe easier.

Hydrate (Through Reusable Cup & Straw of Course!)

Sipping through a straw isn’t just a trick makeup artist’s use so lipstick won’t come off. By drinking through a straw whenever possibly, you not only keep your pout perfect but you also help in the green effort of less plastic waste. Don’t forget to drink out of your reusable/travel cup too!

Eat Clean

By not only eating cleaner, juicing and shopping with reusable bags, you’ll cut down on plastic wrapping and packaging along with putting more wholefoods into your body (think fruits and vegetables!)

Turn Off the Water

For every minute you have the water funning, two gallons of water go down you drain. To conserve water, multi-task – leave your face wash on while you wash the rest of your body, shampoo while you shave your legs. Or, simply set a kitchen timer to not spend too much time in the shower.

Be a Label Hound

Check the ingredients of your skin and shower products. Chemicals can be harmful not only to your skin but to the water and environment it is transported to. Try our popular H&H Brightening Polish, not with bio-friendly microbeads!

H&H Science products are dermatologist tested and approved, Ph balanced, cruelty free, chemical paraben free, non-comedogenic, medical-grade, made in the USA, and distributed locally by a family-owned business.

What is Next? 

After finding the kit that is right for your skin type and level of sensitivity, it is important to know exactly what your daily skin care regimen should include, in order to fight acne or maintain clear skin. Cleansing daily is essential to removing dirt, oil and dead skin. After cleansing, a treatment, such as gentle exfoliants and acne treatments, should be used to treat pimples and all oily areas of the face. Following cleansing and treating your skin, hydration is next in line! Using an ultra-lightweight moisturizer will help maintain a healthy pH. As the last step in your regimen, it is important to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays with a  lightweight, oil free sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or higher.
