My Morning Anti-Aging Routine for Sensitive Skin

First things first…as soon as I wake up I drink a glass of water to replenish what moisture I lost during the night. Then I do a 15 to 30-minute yoga workout to stretch my muscles and release any tension or soreness. After yoga, I make sure to eat breakfast and take my HH Science Clear Skin vitamin. Now I’m ready to begin my HH Science anti-aging skin care routine so I can look and feel my best!

This luxurious, purifying, soothing cleanser gently cleans and replenishes the skin. Rich in antioxidants and natural botanicals, it nourishes and restores, resulting in healthier, more radiant looking skin. My skin is left refreshed and hydrated!

What to Look For When Buying Sunscreen

Everyone knows that a good sunscreen is a healthy skin care essential all year long, but there’s a lot of information that most don’t know when buying sunscreen. Sunscreen is not a one-size-fits all, and there are thousands of different types of sunscreens to fit different needs – for everyday wear, water-resistant or sweat-proof protection, or incorporated in their makeup products.

Whatever your sunscreen need is, here is how to ensure you find your next favorite sunscreen so you can be safe and protected when outside.

Start with SPF 50+

Both UVA and UVB rays can lead to skin cancer (this is old news), plus UVA rays can cause fine liens and wrinkles, therefore speeding up the signs of aging. UVB rays are those that cause sunburns. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends a minimum of 30 SPF but here at Trillium, we always recommend a minimum of 50+ to help protect against 97% of the sun’s UVB rays. Also, if you are fair-skinned, always go for a higher SPF.

Know Your Sunscreen’s Key Ingredients

By taking a quick look at your sunscreen’s ingredient list camp help ensure you are getting the quality and appropriate coverage you need. First off, look for the term “broad spectrum” as it ensures you’ll have both UVA and UVB protection. Mineral sunscreens, or physical sunscreens, work by using natural minerals such as Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide to reflect the sun’s rays from your skin. All of our sunscreens at H&H Science are broad-spectrum and are non-comedogenic (will not clog pores).

Consider Your Skin Type

Many sunscreens are designed specifically to help those with dry, oily or sensitive skin types. For dry skin, avoid sunscreen sprays or gels with alcohol. For sensitive skin, mineral sunscreens are good bets with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. I recommend our H&H Sheer Antioxidant Sunscreen SPF 50+ with active ingredient of Zinc Oxide 13.75% and Green Tea Polyphenols to help sooth red or sensitive skin.

Consider Stocking Up, Especially During “Outdoor” Season

If you aren’t applying your sunscreen often or re-applying at the right time, you won’t be able to get all the protection your sunscreen can offer. Your sunscreen should be applied at minimum, every two hours. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you might need to stock up a bit more in order to last.

Know How to Build Sunscreen Into Your Makeup Routine

A great and easy way to add a healthy sunscreen habit into your day is to build it into your morning routine. There are plenty of foundations out there with SPF in it but I always recommend a mineral foundation with SPF as it is healthier for your skin, and won’t cause acne as these formulas are composed of organic minerals and are also oil free – they don’t support the growth of bacteria. I love to recommend both our H&H Tinted Brightening BB Cream SPF 50+ as it is a universal tinted foundation/SPF/Moisturizer all in one, and our H&H Mineral Sheer Tint as it evens out skin tine with a sheer, natural radiance. 

Pick a Sunscreen You Enjoy Wearing

I always say to my clients, “choose a sunscreen that you like to wear,” because it increases your chance of actually wearing sunscreen to protect your skin. By choosing a sunscreen with nice perks (like SPF 50+, spray or tinted BB cream) that could make you more excited about re-applying.

7 )Add Sparkle and Shine- The holidays are a perfect time to add sparkle to your make-up routine!

When choosing holiday makeup, decide if you’re going to play up your eyes or your mouth. Never do a dark, smoky eye and a red lip.  Choose one or the other. If you emphasize both, you’ll risk looking like overdone. If you do a bright lip, keep the face light and use only mascara and a light shadow on lids. On your lips, try both lipstick and gloss. First apply liner all over lips, dot lipstick with your finger and follow with a light (not heavy) gloss. My perfect favorite holiday red lipstick is our very own H&H Science Luxury Lipstick in Lola. To get a flawless finish, I first apply our H&H Science Gel Lip liner in Bordeaux, followed by a full coat of Lola and then a light layer of our Liquid Lipstick in Just Bitten for a glossy finish! End result- Your lips steal the show!

If you opt for a dark, smoky eye, lighten up lips with a light, sheer lipstick. My personal favorite H&H Science neutral lip color is Burlesque. I first line my lips with our H&H Science Gel Lip Liner in Naked, then apply a full coat of our Luxury Matte Lipstick in Burlesque followed by a light layer of our Liquid Lipstick in Kitten Pink to add a gloss finish. End result-perfect soft lip to complement those smoky eyes!

Make sure that your skin is hydrated before applying. Wear a light sheer tint that plumps up the skin and adds hydration- like our H&H Science Mineral Sheer Tint. It is my go to foundation for the holiday season. Provides a beautiful dewy finish.

Thicken and condition your lashes to get the most volume this most eye popping look this holiday season. Use one coat of our new H&H Science Lash Thickener followed by one coat of our H&H Science Absolute Black VolumeX Mascara and your lashes will steal the show!

Back to School, 90’s Style // By Megan Dyer, The Style Counsel

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 2.12.14 PM
Today was all about bringing the 90’s back. #chokerstyle // tip // embrace this trend and simply tie a slight black ribbon around the neck. I made my own by using a loose hanging ribbon from one of my tops! //

This time of year is one of my favorites!!! It truly is. Your waking up from lazy summer days to find yourself back in the mix of a new school year – with a ton of commitment and responsibility.

It’s a Fresh Start and a new direction! you have a clean slate!

Thinking back (way back!) to my high school fashion scene, I was reflecting on all the personalities, influences, and expression that presented itself. The Style environment in the 90’s was so motivated by Music, Art, Friends (the tv show 🤗 ) your Beeper – that’s how we communicated back then – the Gap, and any movie you recited because you had seen it in the theater 3-5 times. (Clueless, Romeo & Juliet, Airheads…just to name a few)

I feel teens of the 90’s really put thought into how they expressed themselves with Style, either based on what influenced them, or how they wanted to be seen.

Well..if your a Style & Fashion geek like I am 🤓 , you will recognize that trends and styles reemerge and re-invent themselves every decade – even if your a young’n today – you will later recognize trends that you once experienced.

That is where we are now. The style of the 90’s is your NEW style of today. Today’s 90’s style is simple, fresh and less fussy. And in my slightly biased opinion, the perfect Style to adopt for the new School Year. It’s easy, attainable, and above all else –  comfortable.

Outfit #1:

Click here for some 90’s style inspo.

THE one thing that proceeds your Style, above all else, is your health and well-being. Before you can think of adopting and evolving your Style, make sure you’re taking care of YOU, first! That means, having a healthy diet, moving your bod, and taking care of your skin!

Taking care of your self and working towards a Healthy Skin and Hair regimen, will give you confidence, and a fresh look. I have some personal favorites from HH Skin Science that I really encourage you to begin using. Trust me, you will thank me in 20 years 😘 .

MCStudio-90sFashionSkin

First, cleanse! Keep your pores free of sweat, makeup, and all that school stress! I love the Green Tea Cleanser. It’s gentle on the skin but strong enough to combat breakouts!

Second, use the Ultra Sheer Sunscreen SPF 50+. I can’t say enough about this SPF… start using it now ladies. The formula is so lightweight, so sheer, and no joke – it gives you a glow. Wear alone or under makeup. It doubles as a makeup primer too!

Third, Tinted Brightening BB Cream. The great thing about 90’s style is that it’s fairly minimalistic when it comes to makeup – less is definitely more. So, with the Tinted BB Cream, you are giving yourself the needed coverage and color, without feeling like you have a mask on – it’s just you shining through! 🌟💫
