Date Night + Green Sponge

Do you have a date coming up soon? Are you excited but worried about your complexion not looking its best? Don’t be nervous! We are here to show you how to achieve glowing, stunning skin that your date will not forget, step-by-step!

STEP 1: Cleanse your face with boscia’s Clear Complexion Cleanser and Konjac Cleansing Date Night Combine Sponge with Complexion Clearing Clay. Thorough cleansing prepares our skin to better absorb all of the skincare products that we are going to apply, instead of layering them on top of dirt and oil. Our Clear Complexion Cleanser is a lightweight, refreshing, gel cleanser that thoroughly cleanses, purifies, and refines pores to maintain a clear complexion. It is especially beneficial for acne-prone skin. Pair the cleanser with our Konjac Cleansing Sponge infused with green clay to clarifies and gently exfoliate dead skin cells that can block products from penetrating into the skin. You’ll be left with a smoother, brighter-looking complexion!

STEP 2: Apply toner after cleansing to restore skin’s natural pH balance and provide its first layer of hydration.

STEP 3: Throw on a boscia hydrogel mask to deeply hydrate and brighten your skin while taking a relaxing, luxurious bath with your favorite bath bomb, candles, and music. Remember to not to sit in the tub for too long, though – this can cause our skin to wrinkle!

STEP 4: Massage your face with our Tsubaki Beauty Oil to give your skin an instantly visible radiance! Tsubaki Beauty Oil not only provides protection against free-radical damage and prevents premature signs of aging, but also brightens and hydrates.

STEP 5: Don’t forget your eyes and lips, as you don’t want puffy eyes and cracked lips while your date looks at your face! Apply a thick layer of lip balm and boscia’s Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm. This eye balm instantly de-puffs, hydrates, and revives tired eyes with its cooling and soothing effects. Carry the eye balm in your bag in case you need a quick fix during the night. The stick formula will not disrupt makeup or spill and make a mess!

STEP 6: Apply your favorite facial moisturizer to complete your skincare routine. Moisturizer not only moisturizes your skin, but also seals in all of the skincare products you have applied prior. Try our Tsubaki Glotion as your final routine step to hydrate and smooth skin while giving your complexion an extra glowing boost with its natural, mineral blend of light-reflecting pigments!

Now that we have completed our date night skincare preparations, we are ready to put on makeup, style our hair, and select the perfect outfit to complete the stunning and glowing look that our date will never forget!

Say Goodbye to Oily and Shine!

Green Tea Oil Control Mask - Main

Now that the season has officially shifted into spring and the weather has begun to warm up, our skin is starting to produce more oil than it did in winter. Excess oil not only makes our skin look oily and clogs our pores which causes breakouts, but it also requires us to frequently touch-up our makeup in the afternoon. This week, our boscia team is loving our peel-off “Green Tea Oil-Control Mask”! boscia’s unique peel-off mask innovation provides “gap-free” delivery into the skin, giving immediate benefits and long-term results. The peel-off removal also provides extra refinement to our face texture. Our Green Tea Oil-Control Mask instantly mattifies, provides oil-control to the skin, and minimizes sebum production!

Our innovative ingredients banish shine and control oil!

What are the Different Types of Face Masks?

Mask Big Photo

Face masks have the ability to provide the most immediate results within a very short time period, making them staple products in our skincare routines. However, with so many varieties on the market, it can be confusing to navigate through the options. Today, we will be explaining the different types of face masks to help you select the best one for your skin type and needs!

Wash-Off Mask, Clay Mask Mask Square 2

Wash-off masks and clay masks deeply cleanse and detoxify the skin. Ingredients commonly found in these types of masks, such as black charcoal, clay, and mud, are very powerful toxin absorbers. Therefore, they are especially beneficial for people suffering from clogged or enlarged pores or acne-prone skin. boscia’s unique two-part Charcoal Pore Pudding, powered by black and white charcoal, minimizes the appearance of pores while balancing the skin. Activated Black Bamboo Charcoal clarifies and purifies pores by removing dirt and impurities without irritation, while Binchotan White Charcoal Powder moisturizes and balances skin by increasing hydration.

Beauty Tip-> Before applying a wash-off or clay mask, soak a towel with warm water and place it on your face for two to three minutes. The warm temperature of the towel helps to open pores, allowing the mask to better absorb skin impurities.

Beauty Tip-> When removing a wash-off or clay mask, rinse your face with warm water. The temperature of the warm water helps the mask “melt” and come off more easily. When the mask is fully removed, splash your face with cold water, two to three times. The temperature of the cold water tightens and closes the freshly cleaned pores.

 

Peel-Off Mask

Peel-off masks have several different functions, including clarifying pores, calming skin inflammation, and controlling excess oil. boscia’s innovative peel-off masks provide extra refinement of the skin texture by “peeling off” dead skin cells. Our Green Tea Oil-Control Mask immediately mattifies, provides oil-control, and minimizes sebum production. It is even suitable for acne-prone skin! The Luminizing Black Mask is especially beneficial for people suffering from blackheads or whiteheads. It minimizes pore appearance and removes impurities, giving you a healthy, clarified complexion!

Beauty Tip -> You can use the same Beauty Tips for Wash-Off masks and Clay masks when applying Peel-Off masks!

 

Gel Mask

Gel masks are designed to provide hydration for our skin. This type of mask has a light and jelly-like texture. They also create a cooling sensation when applied onto the face. Gel masks are suitable for those with dehydrated skin, or individuals with oily skin who are looking to replenish moisture but do not want to feel greasy.

Beauty Tip-> When the weather starts to warm up, place your gel mask in the refrigerator. The mask will make your skin feel extra cool and calm when applied onto your face!

Hydrogel Mask, Sheet Mask

Hydrogel masks and sheet masks are great for brightening, providing deep hydration, and even mattifying skin. boscia’s unique two-piece hydrogel mask completely conforms to the contours of your face, allowing the ingredients to be fully absorbed by your skin. Our Sake Brightening Hydrogel Mask is infused with sake to firm, tighten, and brighten your complexion, while our Tsubaki Oil Deep Hydration Hydrogel Mask provides deep hydration, leaving your face baby-soft!

Beauty Tip -> Exfoliate your skin before throwing on a hydrogel mask or sheet mask. Dead skin cells can prevent skincare products from deeply penetrating, therefore, removing them through exfoliation helps the ingredients in the mask to be fully absorbed.

Cream Mask

Cream masks normally have the thickest texture among all of the different types of face masks, as they are rich in emollients and very moisturizing. Cream masks not only provide deep hydration, but they also contain anti-aging benefits, including ingredients that firm skin and smooth fine lines. This type of mask is especially beneficial for mature skin.

Beauty Tip-> Before applying a cream mask, rub the formula in between your palms to warm it up. Warming the mask close to skin temperature will allow it to be better absorbed by your face and avoid the skin sensitivity. Take the time to massage your face upwards to lift the skin while applying the cream mask. This will help prevent sagginess and loss of elasticity. Your face will feel relaxed, as if you are at spa!

Sleeping Mask Mask Square 1

Sleeping masks are often designed to provide hydration or moisture for our skin while we sleep. A sleeping mask is the last step of our evening skincare routine and does not need to be rinsed off until the next morning. This type of mask is especially useful when we are too lazy to go through our entire skincare routine but want to wake up with hydrated skin, or when we want to give our skin an extra hydration boost overnight for the next day. boscia’s Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask intensely moisturizes and delivers long-term anti-aging benefits while you sleep, leaving you with smooth and soft skin in the morning!

Beauty Tip -> Massage the sleeping mask onto your face with gentle, circular motions before going to bed. The circular motions help the ingredients in the mask be fully penetrated into your skin!

Revive Your Eyes with Our Beauty Tips!

Eye Care Tips Main

Overuse of electronics and lack of beauty sleep can cause dark circles, fine lines, and dryness around our eyes. Although many people begin their skincare routine at a young age, they often overlook the area around the eyes, or simply just apply face moisturizer to it. However, these are not the right ways to take care of our eyes. It is never too early to include eye care in your skincare routine. Did you know that the eyes immediately show our age to others, even though we try to hide that secret? Not only that, they are also the most sensitive and delicate areas on our face, so it is important that we use products specifically created for them – ingredients in face products can be too harsh or not provide enough hydration. Today, we will be sharing beauty tips on how to take a good care of the area around your eyes!

eye tips 1

Take a little break with a warm towel to improve blood circulation

Rinse a small towel with warm water. Place it on closed eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this three to four times. The warm temperature of the towel helps with blood circulation around your eyes, thereby improving dark circles. This is also a great chance to let your eyes take a little break. They should feel rested and relaxed!

Massage upward with your ring fingers to lift eyes

Massage the areas around your eyes with your ring fingers to prevent them from drooping. Using our ring fingers ensures that we are not pressing on the eyes too hard and causing wrinkles. Remember to massage upward at the end of your eyes to lift the areas, instead of pulling them down. Your eyes should feel less saggy after massaging!

Cool and de-puff eyes with our Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm

Apply our Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm every morning and night. This balm hydrates, instantly de-puffs, and revives tired eyes. It is easy to carry and won’t make a mess in your purse. You can also apply it over makeup whenever you need a mid-day pick-me-up!

Feel like you’re at a spa with our Sake Brightening Hydrogel Eye Masks

Throw our Sake Brightening Hydrogel Eye Masks on your eyes three to four times a week to enhance your eye care routine! Our hydrogel eye masks are infused with Sake, antioxidants, and plant extracts to hydrate, brighten, and firm the fine lines around your eyes. The unique hydrogel texture makes you feel like you’re at a spa!

Use sun protection to minimize damage caused by UV rays

Sun protection should always be the last step of your face and eye routine in the morning. When it comes to anti-aging, sun protection is the most important step. Exposing our skin to UV rays can lead to dark spots, fine lines, and loss of firmness around the eyes; therefore, it is never too early to start taking preventative measures. Try our All-In-One B.B. Eye Brightener SPF 20! This B.B. Eye Brightener not only hydrates, brightens, and provides anti-aging benefits, but it also conceals imperfections around your eyes at the same time!

Travel Skincare Bag for Spring Getaway!

Travel Bag

After losing an hour of beauty sleep, spring is finally approaching! Are you ready for your spring break or a little weekend getaway to enjoy the sunshine? We are too, but before that, we should make sure our skin is well prepared and will be glowing on the trip! Today, we will be sharing with you our essentials for a travel skincare bag and some beauty tips! Always take extra care of your skin when traveling. Breakouts and flaky skin can happen more often than usual when our skin is trying to accommodate different environments. It is important that we pack the necessary product and don’t be lazy!

Cleanser: “Massage face with fingers while cleansing to prevent breakouts”

Cleansing is the most vital step. Improper cleansing clogs up pores and doesn’t allow moisturizers or treatments to absorb correctly. Always pack a cleanser that contains amino acids which does not dry out skin and retains natural moisture.

Try our Purifying Cleansing Gel with this Beauty Tip -> Cleanse your face by moving in little circular motions with fingers. Start from the edges of your skin. Then go around and work your fingers toward the center of the face. Remember to be very gentle! Many people wash their face very quickly and press too hard on the skin by using the whole palm while cleansing. This can create irritation that causes breakouts, and some of the areas may be missed. Cleansing in little circular motions make sure we don’t miss a spot on our face, and we are taking the time to gently massage the skin. Try this tip and you should notice a difference on your skin after a week!

Toner: “Glow your skin with a quick ten minute toner mask” 

Toner also provides the first layer of hydration to our skin. Beauty Tip-> Spray enough alcohol-free Balancing Facial Tonic onto 4 cotton pads (Try to stay away from alcohol based toners; they could over dry your skin). Place them on your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Let them sit for 10 minutes like a simple self-made mask to let the toner soaks in. The cotton pads provide a seal in like function and force the toner to penetrate to the most inner layer of our skin, rather than just staying on the surface. Try this during your nighttime routine and before you apply makeup. Your skin will glow from inside and feel like it has drunk tons of water!

Moisturizer: “Moisturize skin every day”

Our skin tends to produce more oil when the weather starts to warm up. Oil control is especially important at this time. Oil-Free Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is therefore our go to moisturizer! This moisturizer provides weightless hydration and sun protection while absorbs the excess oil on our skin.

Cotton Pads BB CreamBathroom

B.B. Cream: “Skincare and Makeup all in one”

Rather than carrying lots of makeup, bring a B.B. Cream Light Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++! This B.B. Cream hydrates and soothes skin as a skincare product, while provides natural coverage that conceals dark spots and acne scars and makes your skin flawless like a makeup all in one!

Mask: “Hydrated skin all the time”

Put on a mask every night! Mask provides the most immediate result to our skin. Keeping our skin hydrated all the time is one of the keys in skincare; dryness can further lead to dullness, wrinkles, and breakouts. Putting on a mask every night makes sure our skin is well hydrated especially when it is trying to accommodate the change of environment.

Beauty Tip->Bring several masks since your skin may react differently under the new environment! We like to throw on a mask every night when traveling, spend more time on skincare routine, and make our skin feel luxurious when we’re in vacation mood. Hydrogel mask is our first choice! It is light to pack, doesn’t need to be rinsed, and can be tossed onto the nightstand when finish. The special 2 piece design aligns with face contours and the formula seals in for complete absorption. The marine collagen ingredient makes your skin feeling soft and firm!

Four Tips for Beauti-Fall Skin!

                                                               fall leaves  fall

With October in full swing we officially have said our goodbyes to summer and hello to autumn. As the sun sets earlier and the days get cooler, it is important to adjust your skincare routine to correlate with the weather change. Often times, our skin can become drier and more sensitive during the cooler seasons so we hope our tips help you and your skin remain healthy and glowing for the upcoming holiday season.

Protect & Perfect

It’s easy to assume that UV rays are less harmful during cloudy, rainy weather, however, the sun rays are still very much there doing damage to the skin. Regardless of the weather change, it is very important to continue protecting your skin year round.  For SPF protection, moisture, and antioxidant benefits, our Self-Defense Vital Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 provides all day support. If the busy fall season has you feeling swamped – skip to the finish line with our B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ (available in two shades) for your most radiant, protected and perfected skin!

Exfoliate & Polish

Exfoliation will save your skin as it recovers from the warm summer weather. Exfoliation – scrubbing the uppermost layer of skin to remove dead skin cells – will leave your skin polished, and allow products to penetrate more efficiently. One boscia beauty tip to try is using the Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder with a little bit of Tsubaki Beauty Oil instead of water. Infusing these two fabulous products will provide maximum hydration and smoothness!

Mask Away!

Stay home during the colder weather and give your skin some much needed TLC. Embrace sleeping masks! You can wear our Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask to bed, and wake up to baby-soft skin. We love this mask because it’s fuss-free, no rinsing required and deeply hydrates the skin all while you sleep.

Moisturize Skin Every Day!

The skin is the most external part of the body, so naturally it will take the most damage from the changing in weather. This can cause the skin to take on a drier texture, losing its former summer glow. Moisturizing religiously will keep the skin plump and hydrated – our Sake Balm moisturizer adds bounce and brightness to dull and dry skin instantly helping your skin remain in its best condition year round.

We hope our boscia skincare tips help you maintain your best complexion all year long!

Happy Skincare!
