How to Plan and Start a Wedding Beauty Routine

Prep your skin and hair for the big day!
You’ve made it through the fun part, your engagement, and now it’s time to get into the nitty-gritty of looking fantastic on your big day. We’re talking about your wedding beauty routine because right now is the perfect excuse to give it a makeover so that you can have the best skin and hair of your life as you make your way down the aisle.
Get-your-wedding-glow-on
Get your wedding glow on
With all eyes on you, not to mention photos that will live on in infamy, you’ll want to have a flawless face free of dry skin, blemishes, and other skin impurities. For delicate face skin, you’ll want to start prepping months in advance—most experts say six months prior to your wedding day is a good place to start. Beginning a daily beauty routine like MONAT’s Be Balanced™ Routine or Be Gentle™ Routine can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin.
Get-strands-camera-ready
Get strands camera ready
A good haircare routine always includes cleaning the hair properly to remove any dust, pollution and styling product left on the scalp. Find a shampoo and conditioner like Volumizing Revive Shampoo and Volumizing Revitalize Conditioner that supports healthy, younger-looking hair and protect your tresses from UV damage and environmental factors to help get your locks camera ready!
Leading up to the big day, why not treat your strands to some extra love with a good oil treatment like REJUVENIQETM Oil Intensive. The additional nourishment will not only energize your scalp, but will leave hair looking healthier and shinier and you feeling beautiful and confident.
Say-YES-to-naturals,-instead-of-chemicals
Say YES to naturals, instead of chemicals
Try using hair products that are made with less chemicals, because chemicals, like silicone, sodium chloride, parabens and alcohol can have an adverse effect on the hair and skin. Ditch the harsh chemicals and go for naturally based products that make you look and feel great!
Prepping for your big day? We’d LOVE to see the final result! Share your picks on social with #MONATstyle!

We’ve Got the Word on Skincare

Vital skincare terms you NEED to know!
Everyone loves stepping out into the world feeling like a million bucks from head-to-toe! We like calling that feeling your MONAT Glow, and with the launch of MONAT Skincare, so many of you are lighting up your neighbourhoods and our social media timelines. But before you get to sharing and posting your vibrant glow with friends and family, you’ve got to know the lingo!

Caffeine_blog-1

Caffeine
Caffeine isn’t just for giving you a kick in the morning! It’s also an important ingredient in many skincare products. Caffeine constricts blood vessels to reduce redness and puffiness. This can help improve the appearance of puffiness around the eyes, as well reduce the appearance of cellulite. Ah, yes…music to our ears!
Hyaluronic Acid
Restoring properties naturally produced by your body is essential to a healthy skincare regimen. Hyaluronic Acid is one of those properties. It’s actually a sugar molecule naturally found in your skin and helps increase moisture content and prevents water loss. If you’re interested in keeping your skin radiantly hydrated for a softer, smoother appearance, look for products infused with Hyaluronic Acid, which is a key active ingredient in our Rewind™ Age Control Nectar.
Micellar Water
If you’re a haircare nerd like us, you’re probably familiar with micellar water. It’s a key ingredient in a number of products known for deeply cleansing with a mild touch. Micellar water is loaded with cleansing molecules and is also effective as a makeup remover prior to washing your face.

Be-Gentle™-Creamy-Cleanser_blog_nov_7_2019

Peptides
Peptides are tiny protein fragments that promote collagen growth and repair skin. Like hyaluronic acid, peptides are already present in your skin, so the right skincare product infused with peptides gives you a power boost often leading to the smoothing of expression lines and wrinkles. Peptides are an active ingredient Be Gentle™ Creamy Cleanser. Try it out and put some pep in your step!

Plant-Stem-Cells_blog-1

Plant Stem Cells
Mother Earth provides many gifts! Plant Stem Cells are one of them. Plant Stem Cells boost collagen and have HUGE healthy aging benefits for your skin! Plant Stem Cells extracted from Moss are featured in many of our skincare products and offer a powerhouse of benefits to help skin look brighter and more youthful.

Oild-drop

REJUVENIQE S™
This one probably looks familiar. REJUVENIQE S™ is a MONAT-exclusive ingredient featured in many of our haircare products. The formulation includes the revitalizing powers of 17 botanical oils and other essential oils that hydrate, plump and nourish your skin! REJUVENIQE S™ is featured in many of our new skincare products including Be Balanced™ Lightweight Moisturizer!
VItamin C / KAKADU PLUM
Vitamin D gets all the attention when it comes to skincare, but don’t forget about Vitamin C! Kakadu Plum is an Australian-native superfood containing a high concentration of Vitamin C and soothing anti-fungal properties. Kakadu Plum has benefits for all skin types which includes brightening skin, reducing hyperpigmentation and protecting skin from impurities found in the environment.
So now you’re full of skincare terminology and recommendations you can share with your friends and family! Plus you know exactly what type of ingredients to look for to achieve the best results.

What’s Your Type?

Discovering your skin type
Normal. Oily. Dry. Combination. Sensitive.
No skin is created equal! So it’s important to treat yours as the unique piece of YOU that it is! Determining your skin type is imperative to having an effective skincare routine. Identifying your skin type is relatively easy with a little research. Here are a few identifying factors to help you discover the type of skin you’re in!

Take a Closer Look

Take a Closer Look
Time to grab a mirror and do a little inspecting! A good way to determine your skin type is to first wash your face. Start with a clean slate! After about 15 minutes, see where you measure up with the different skin types below.
Normal
Normal skin is smooth, soft and supple.
Pores are barely visible.
Normal skin does not feel dry or oily, rather it feels fresh after a wash.
Oily
Oily skin produces oils in the T-zone and the cheek area.
Pores are often enlarged and quite visible.
Oily skin gives a shiny look and feels slick to the touch.
Dry
Dry skin may feel tight in the morning.
It often has a dull appearance and is rough in texture.
Dry skin will often have red blotches and can feel itchy.
Combination
A little bit of this, a little bit of that! Combination skin is a mix of dry and oily.
Pores are often enlarged on your nose.
Dry skin causes your T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) to be oily, while your cheeks will be dry.
Sensitive
Sensitive skin is prone to irritation.
Pores may appear larger.
Sensitive skin has redness, itching and dryness.
Once your skin type is decided, be sure you are choosing the right skincare routine for complete care and radiance! We love Be Balanced™ Routine for Normal and Combination skin or Be Gentle™ Routine for Dry and Sensitive skin.

The Power of Essence

Awaken your best skin with this pore perfecting miracle
You’ve heard the expression “Happy skin, happy life”, right?
Ok, well maybe that’s not the exact turn of phrase, but we totally agree that flawless skin certainly makes all well in the world!
Fine lines, large pores and a lackluster complexion have no room in your busy schedule. One way to keep skin looking and feeling its best is to work an essence into your skincare routine.
Much like your hair, skin picks up dirt and impurities in the atmosphere, which prevent it from looking as bright and youthful as it once did. Think back to a time in your life when your face looked its smoothest and brightest. An essence works to prepare your skin for the rest of your routine, helping it recapture that look with just two applications a day!

SKIN-REVITALIZING-ESSENCE™_blog_sep_26_2019

Choosing Your Essence
If you’re a first-time user, you’ll be glad you discovered this powerful skincare must! As an ultra-gentle, beneficial lightweight liquid, an essence offers just the right blend of hydrating, skin-replenishing, and anti-aging ingredients designed to smooth and soften for brighter, more radiant skin. We love New SKIN REVITALIZING ESSENCE™!
You can use SKIN REVITALIZING ESSENCE™ in the morning or before bed, but for best results, it’s recommended to use it twice a day. You can enjoy the benefits of this on its own, but if used before applying REWIND™ AGE CONTROL NECTAR and BE BALANCED™ LIGHTWEIGHT MOISTURIZER, you’ll get the most pore-shrinking, skin-smoothing results!
Check out this wonder product in action:
We’d love to see your #MONATGlow after trying SKIN REVITALIZING ESSENCE™! Share your pics on social with the #MONATSkin and #HealthySkinRevolution.

A Hair And Skin Supplement Can Really Help!

A Hair And Skin Supplement Can Really Help!

MONAT has raised the bar in hair nutrition with the supreme proprietary blend of S3. Each of the clinically proven ingredients work together synergistically to replenish the system of possible nutrient deficiencies that could be contributing to hair loss.

Dr.-Brent-Agin

Dr. Brent Agin, MONAT Scientific Board Member, reiterates this information, saying, “These days, with soil depletion and water depletion, you can no longer rely on getting all of your nutrients from food.” Dr. Agin recommends S3 Supplement Support System as a great supplement that promotes healthy hair as well as skin and nails.

S3-Supplement-Support-System_blog_nov15

S3 is a precisely formulated daily nutritional. This exclusive proprietary daily nutritional includes clinically proven ingredients, including:
  • OptiMSM®
    A rich source of sulfur and a key component of collagen and keratin that supports the structural integrity of the hair and skin.
  • ACTIVAloe®
    Improves the elasticity of both the hair and skin. Helps to improve the appearance of aging skin and hair.
  • EVNolTM
    May promote hair growth and increase the amount of hair in individuals experiencing hair loss.
  • VITAMIN A
    (as beta-carotene) – Counteracts Vitamin A deficiency which is common in people who are experiencing hair loss.
  • BIOTIN
    Provides structural support to the hair shaft and follicle.
  • ZINC
    Contains anti-aging properties which are beneficial to hair health.
“When it comes to supplements, the biggest difference is attention to safe natural ingredients,” Dr. Agin continues. “There are so many products for hair and nails that it is very hard for consumers to figure out which ones are reputable with safe ingredients. Without any governing body that weeds out the bad companies and products it is up to the consumers to figure this out. MONAT removes the guesswork for the consumer.”
