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!
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!

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.
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!

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!
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!
Facial sprays – the skincare step that cannot be “mist”! Whether you spritz during your skincare routine, during makeup application, or throughout the day, facial sprays and tonics are for everyone. Our facial tonics at boscia provide amazing benefits and disperse a fine spray, great for your everyday skincare routine or for freshening up makeup throughout the day. Find our top reasons to spritz your skin below!
Introducing facial sprays. These quick fixes are the key to elevating your skincare ritual. Today, many facial sprays go beyond hydration to now contain treatment for both instant and lasting results. Our Clear Complexion Tonic prevents and treats congestions and breakouts in the skin in a spritz. Following cleansing, spray tonic onto skin and continue with your usual skincare routine and makeup if desired. Balancing Facial Tonic boosts the efficacy of your treatments by prepping skin and balancing the skin’s surface. Both of our tonics contain our signature Botanical Blend. In this liquid form, the Botanical Blend treatment penetrates the skin quickly and delivers results instantly – thus, always use tonic immediately after cleansing. Spraying throughout the day will continue to treat the skin while adding controlled hydration for clear, healthy skin.
On set, many makeup artists keep a brush in one hand and a facial spray in the other! For flawless foundation application, misting is a must. Our tonics should be used prior to skincare and makeup application to enhance your look. Spritzing a buffing brush or Beauty Blender prior to use with your complexion product not only allows for smoother application, it also treats and hydrates the skin to give a plumped and healthy look. This will work to sheer out the product while infusing skincare elements into your application. Our tonics provide a cushion between makeup and skin, preventing the dreaded “caked” look. Our Balancing Facial Tonic is a favorite among the boscia team because it benefits any skin type and imparts a radiant glow to skin.
Mochi Hada means “baby-soft” in Japanese. At boscia, we take pride in developing skincare to help you achieve mochi hada skin. Our Balancing Facial Tonic hydrates and evens skin tone, while our Clear Complexion Tonic gently eliminates breakouts and regulates oil production. Both of our tonics work to prepare and prime the skin for your usual skincare ritual by creating a perfected, balanced canvas. For mochi hada skin throughout the day, spray tonic onto skin to refresh and rehydrate the skin.

Think you have everything ready to go for college this year? You may have checked off your list the essentials for dorm living but do you have what you need to take proper care of your skin?!
College life is going to get busy and that will make it easy to develop poor skin care habits. Our biggest suggestion is to establish a solid skincare routine – These 4 simple steps won’t take much time away from your studies or social life and they will keep your skin in tip-top shape:
Never hit the sheets with your make up on
As tempting as it may seem to face plant onto the bed and pass out after an all-nighter studying or long night out, be sure to cleanse your face first. One of the worst things for your skin is to sleep with your makeup on. Your pores will clog and the environmental toxins and excess oil built up from the day will sink into your skin. You may not see the effects at first, but over time, this will create dull skin tones, breakouts, and wrinkles. Make it a routine to remove your makeup after brushing your teeth and this will become like second-nature to you. We recommend using our Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil; it will wash away even the most durable waterproof makeup to gently cleanse your face.
Keep your face protected daily
This is a non-negotiable step in your skincare routine because it serves as the best preventive measure to maintain healthy complexion overtime. While you may not see an instant benefit now, the long-term payoff is worth the extra step. When using sunscreen daily you are protecting your skin from damage by UVA and UVB rays that can result in wrinkles (or even skin cancer) down the road. Try using our Oil-free Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 which serves as a moisturizer to hydrate skin with added SPF to prevent skin damage from the sun.
Battle blemishes by eating a balanced diet
We’ve all heard the term “the Freshman 15” when those extra pounds pack on from all the tempting choices in the dining halls. The late night pizza runs with friends may sound tempting, but it’s important to be taking in as many fresh, whole foods as possible and drinking lots of water. We especially encourage you splurge on berries which are packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E to help skin boost collagen production. Drinking water as your primary beverage each day will also help to flush out toxins from your skin and body! If you are eating healthy and still having problems with acne, we suggest trying out any of the products from our Clear Complexion Collection. Mostly all the products contain Willow Bark, a natural salicylic acid that neutralizes acne-causing bacteria without over-drying or irritating the skin.
Learn the beauty behind quick touch-ups
When you’re running around from class to the gym and squeezing in time to socialize at the hottest events on campus you can’t expect your skin to stay fresh all day long. We suggest using any of our Blotting Linens to blot away excess oil that builds up throughout the day. You can also maintain a picture perfect complexion by giving your face a quick re-touch with our B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA ++ (it even comes in a lighter shade). And if you stayed out too late the night before, don’t forget to apply our All-In-One B.B. Eye Brightener SPF 20 to get rid of dark circles and instantly brighten the under-eye area!
There is no need for a complicated routine to maintain healthy skin – these 4 quick and easy steps will do the trick! Remind yourself that you are worth the extra minutes of pampering😉

At boscia, we take masking very seriously! With an abundance of options for every skin condition, we try to narrow down the options to achieve maximum results. One of our top picks for masking?
Hydrogels typically come in two pieces to ensure a better fit on your face. Created from high-grade medical material used to address injuries, hydrogels enable maximum absorption of skincare benefits. Due to their unique and advanced technology, the barrier between the hydrogel and one’s skin encourages essence to absorb properly.
What makes a hydrogel mask more favorable than a sheet mask?
Sheet masks typically come in a paper or cotton form. Paper sheet masks provide lower absorption levels and tend to stay moist for only 15 minutes. Cotton sheet masks may stay moist for up to 20 minutes, and cling to the contours of the skin better than their paper counterparts. However, neither form delivers results like those of our hydrogel masks. We love our hydrogels because they remain moist for thirty minutes or longer! This guarantees maximum absorption benefits.
How are our hydrogel masks different from other hydrogel masks?
Our hydrogels saturate in an essence to treat your skin concerns. Many companies infuse their treatments in their hydrogels – we found saturating our masks delivered benefits more effectively. With the noticeably thicker consistency of our hydrogels, you receive optimal moisturizing benefits and the two-piece design ensures a customizable fit.
Which hydrogel is right for you?
For a brighter complexion loaded with skin-firming Sake, try our new Sake Brightening Hydrogel Mask and our Sake Brightening Hydrogel Eye Masks new for wide-awake, fresh under-eyes. For oil control and keeping breakouts at bay, enjoy our Green Tea Mattifying Hydrogel Mask. For your cleanest, tightest pores yet, we recommend the Charcoal Pore-Minimizing Hydrogel Mask. Last but not least, a mask to treat dryness and rehydrate the skin after a long week – our new and beloved Tsubaki Oil Deep Hydration Hydrogel Mask.
