You know that we here at W.E.L.L. Insiders love to use and encourage the use of clean beauty options. It only makes sense to take care of your body’s biggest organ- your skin. When it comes to “good for you” skincare, we’ve known and loved Jane Iredale for a very long time. Jane was one of the pioneers of the movement to create skincare and beauty items that work but don’t contain harmful ingredients and to her and her team, we are grateful. We recently had the opportunity to chat with jane iredale’s Global Educator, Edgar Dominguez, to see what he’s loving right now, what tasty tips he’s got for Summer and what’s new at jane iredale.
Hi Edgar- thanks for taking the time to chat with us! Why is it important for you personally to encourage the swap to clean beauty?
It’s extremely important for me to encourage my clients to do the swap to clean beauty, because a having healthy skin is a must! It’s now understood that you can effect just as much change, if not more, by feeding skin from the inside as well as the outside. I recommend that everyone makes the swap to clean beauty- I assure you that your skin will look better than ever before and your complexion will have an overall glow. As Jane Iredale says “The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin.”
Can you give us some quick tips on safe Summer beauty on the go?
Always carry the essentials for the face and body like your sunscreen to have on hand for quick touch ups throughout the day. To protect your lips try a tinted lip balm with SPF, and for the a freshen up, carry a hydration spray for a cooling effect. Our Pommisst Hydration Spray provides a cooling sensation and a pomegranate extract that will also aid as an effective SPF booster.
What’s your favorite product for Summer?
My favorite summer product is a golden shimmer lotion for the face and body. In my opinion, it’s a must-have in order to achieve a celebrity worthy glow. I believe in being paparazzi ready all the time, really. Having the coveted golden glow will make you the scene of the crowd. Pro-tip: For the spotlight complexion, simply mix a little with your foundation. For the ultimate body radiance, mix it with your body cream. Perfect for Summer!
Warm weather is here, how do we keep our makeup looking fresh?
Warm weather can be disastrous for keeping makeup looking fresh. The best product to prevent a total makeup meltdown down is a hydration spray (for setting and refreshing). Carrying it is like having your very own personal makeup artist in your handbag! With a simple mist, your makeup will reactivate and look like as if you just applied it. It will balance the oils from your complexion. The jane iredale spray has ingredients such as orange peel extract, grape fruit extract, and algae extract- so the good stuff.
Any hacks from an insider?
Many people ask me how to achieve a glistening bronzed effect instantaneously, without the harmful sun rays or chemical based self-tanners. I recommend using our jane iredale Tantasia Self Tanner- it’s a self-tanner with a built in bronzer for an immediate tan. With Tantasia, you will no longer need to layer other products. It’s one of our favorite products for Summer.
Many thanks to Edgar and the team at jane iredale for taking the time to chat with us! With the Summer here and our calendars filling up, the last thing we need to worry about is what to put in our makeup bag. We love the idea of keeping a hydration spray in our tote, since it’s a super versatile beauty product to have on hand… and three letters should rule our beauty routine, SPF. Keeping our skin protected from harmful UV rays is extremely important. Whether you’re a minimal makeup kind of person, or love to doll it up, be sure to check the ingredients in what you’re putting on your skin. Don’t know where to start?
