Are your brows ready for the weekend?

 

Yes, you can train in jane!

Have you got skin flaws that you can’t bear to face that stop you from heading to the gym? Maybe you didn’t realise that if you invest in a clean and pure makeup range that is designed to be an extension of skin care, you actually can train in makeup. No more feeling bare-faced or skipping your workout if you skin is misbehaving. The breathability of our non-comedogenic foundations means no more congestion and even better, makeup that won’t run and leave you with streaks – even during that spin class!

Train in Jane - Blog Post Image

Not all makeup can be worn when exercising; generally speaking sweating it out in makeup that contains fillers, talc, parabens, perfumes, FD&C dyes isn’t the best for your skin. If you want to add a bit of colour or coverage to your bare face, make sure you are using pure minerals and a brand that contributes to skin health. Which is why we’re so pleased to tell you that you can, in fact, train in jane!

Why? There’s a few good reasons…

Non-comedogenic – what does it mean?

Laboratory tests confirm that all of our products are non-comedogenic, meaning they do not block pores, so you can confidently wear jane iredale mineral makeup when exercising.

Sensitivity

We steer clear of three major sensitisers in makeup; synthetic fragrance, petroleum based colourants and synthetic preservatives. This reduces the likelihood of irritated skin during exercise, because your skin can breathe and function normally!

Steak-free

Our minerals bind together upon application, which means they resist running, creasing and smearing. They have a high water resistant rating which means sweat doesn’t affect their staying-power. If you use a hand towel to wipe your forehead, simply pat your sweat away rather than wiping to reset your minerals for the rest of your workout.

Sun Protection

Rain, hail or shine, we know many of you love to exercise outdoors, which is why wearing a physical sunscreen while you are outside is the one of the most important skin care safeguards you can use against UV radiation. If you’re looking for a multi-tasking product, our Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder, PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser provide four important functions in one: Foundation, concealer, sun protection and active skin care benefits. These can all be applied as a sheer coverage to give you the SPF protection you need while you train without your skin looking heavily made up with makeup. The sheer coverage will give your skin a beautiful fresh finish and most of all keep you protected with instant UV protection.

Stay Calm

Here’s one for the yogi’s out there – calm mind and calm skin! We make a conscious effort to include ingredients in our products that are calming and soothing; like white lotus flower, cucumber fruit extract, licorice root extract, rosemary leaf extract, willow bark extract, grape seed extract and more. We know that these luxurious botanicals measurably contribute to skin health.

Train in jane iredale to ensure you’re taking care of yourself, from the outside in! Pigmentation, breakout, rosacea… there’s no excuse not to hit the gym. Keeping active will clear your mind, clear your skin and enhance your life. Just make sure you are wearing pure minerals!

Nourish with jane iredale – 8 key products!

In winter, it’s easy to let our regular skincare routine fall by the wayside, as we rug up in layer upon layer and spend more time indoors (Netflix anyone?).

If you do decide to venture outdoors, harsh winds and extreme temperatures can cause damage to the protective layers of your skin, as can huddling by the heater. In winter, we tend to move from one extreme to the other, hot to cold, and this can dry skin out, making it feel dehydrated, dry and even flaky! At jane iredale, we’re dedicated to helping you reveal your most radiant skin (and helping you keep it that way), so we’ve put together a list of our favourite double duty products for winter!

Keep your skin hydrated this winter with these 8 double-duty jane iredale products!

SMOOTH AFFAIR® FACIAL PRIMER & BRIGHTENER

Our Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener is the perfect skin-quenching primer that prepares the skin so makeup goes on easier and lasts longer. It also helps maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity and minimise pores and fine lines while bringing out your natural radiance.

HYDRATION SPRAY

The jane iredale Hydration Sprays come in three unique formulas; Balance, D2O and POMMISST. Each spray helps hydrate and plump the skin leaving you with a refreshed, dewy look. The facial spritz also assures your makeup lasts throughout the day, whilst helping to conceal pores and fine lines. Your skin will be left feeling protected and smooth after using this product!

How to wear it: Pantone Colour of the Year.

For the first time, the 2016 Pantone Colour of the year is a gorgeous blend of two colours; Rose Quartz and Serenity.

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director Pantone Colour Institute.

The two stunning shades work well for most skin tones, used individually or combined, and to celebrate we’re sharing our top picks to make the Pantone look effortlessly wearable!

Rose Quartz picks we love, for a warm and embracing rose tone.

In Touch Highlighter in Complete: This creamy lightweight highlighter will add a soft glow to any look. Illuminate your skin with a highlighter that creates a natural-looking radiance, with the added bonus of light-diffusing, soft focus properties. For the best effect, glide across the top of your cheekbones, brow bones and the bridge of your nose.

PureMoist Lipstick in Chloe: Is there anything more feminine than a pink lip? We don’t think so! This Lipstick will dress your lips in long lasting colour and the combination of orange peel wax, avocado and sunflower seed oils will work to moisturise and soothe your lips.

Quad Bronzer in Rose Dawn: This bronzer is a multi-purpose, brilliant addition to any makeup bag. Use it on your cheeks, eyes and lips, or as an all-over bronzer and highlighter. Mix and match the cool pink and bronze shades for a desirable all over radiance!

Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow in Pink Silk: This glamourous Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow has exceptional staying power, is quick drying and water resistant. Add to the inner corner of your eyes as a highlighter to make your eyes pop with pretty pink! Eye Sheres can be used alone as a liquid eye shadow or it can be worn underneath your powder eye shadow. It will act as a primer prolonging the wear of your eye shadow.

Serenity, for a hint of cool and tranquil blue.

Silver Lining PurePressed Eyeshadow Trio: Embrace your inner ice-queen and make sure that all eyes are on you with our Silver Lining PurePressed Eyeshadow Trio! Our PurePressed Eyeshadows are highly pigmented and long lasting. They can be used wet or dry; we love to apply using the Angled Liner Brush for a Pantone inspired liquid liner.

Violet Eyes and Platinum PurePressed Eyeshadows: These mineral-based PurePressed Eyeshadows are designed to enhance the colour and shape of the eye. They can be used wet or dry and are gentle and safe for sensitive eyes. A dusting of these highly pigmented eye shadows will create a long-lasting finish, without creasing.

Summer Skin Secrets – jane iredale’s top tips and tricks

Summer Skin Secrets - Blog Images

We know the Australian sun can be relentless and, as summer starts to creep up, we think it’s time to talk seriously about summer skin care. That means thinking more about SPF products, but it also means caring for your skin to ensure that it maintains a gorgeous glow, all year round.

The secret to a radiant, glowing complexion comes down to one essential thing: the way you care for your skin. So, we’re taking it back to basics and sharing our top tips and tricks so you can ensure that your skin is prepped and protected from the harsh UV rays this summer.

PREP.

It’s all about preparation. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Never underestimate the power of exfoliation. Make best friends with your Magic Mitt to remove excess dead skin, which can build up when your skin dries out after being exposed to the sun and sea. Dead skin cells can cause congestion, so exfoliating is a simple way to ensure that your moisturiser works effectively, and it’s the first step to achieving a luminous glow all over.
HYDRATE.

Hydration is often taken for granted when it comes to your beauty regime. Moisturising and keeping skin hydrated, especially on your face, is the key to a clear complexion. Before applying makeup, start by prepping your skin with a spritz of one of our hydrating sprays. Carefully formulated to assist hydration of the deeper cells, a little hydration spray goes a long way and includes ingredients that will work to soothe and protect the skin, whilst plumping out any fine lines so your foundation glides on more smoothly. Faithfully reapplying the hydration spray will not only keep your skin conditioned and protected, but it will deliver a powerful source of antioxidants which help to combat the signs of ageing – which can make themselves known during and after sun exposure.

GET YOUR SPF ON.

Wether you are poolside, or amongst the hustle and bustle of Bondi Beach, without a decent layer of SPF on your bod, you’re bound to start seeing the effects of mother nature’s rays. They say ‘slip, slop slap’, and we certainly agree! Sourcing a high SPF sunscreen will see you through the warmer weather with ease. Although, it’s not enough to just have one layer, you need to reapply, and reapply frequently. You really should be applying sun protection everyday, so, to make things simple, jane iredale has created a suite of multi-tasking products and foundations that protect with SPF as they do their primary job. Try our PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser or Glow Time BB Cream.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT YOUR LIPS.

Chapped lips are uncomfortable and painful and are often the result of the sun’s harsh effects. Don’t forget that whilst you may have lathered up in sunscreen, you may have missed your lips. Delivering ample hydration, jane iredale LipDrink Lip Balm takes immediate action, combatting both UVA and UVB rays, with its SPF 15 protection. The double beauty duty, available in three shades, also features essential oils and waxes, which deliver the ultimate protection as well as nourish the deep layers of the skin.

FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT.

Don’t be scared to bronze up the unauthentic way (shhh!). Now considered one of the best beauty cheats, self-tanners are a great way to enhance your skin’s natural colour and shine, without inflicting harmful damage from sun exposure. Whilst providing some protection from the suns rays, self-tanner should always be used alongside sunscreen. Our go-to is the Tantasia Self Tanner – a moisturizing natural bronzer, and self tanner for the face and body. And…. The delicate citrus scent is uplifting and has none of the unpleasant after-smell often associated with self-tanners.

It’s so important to care for your skin, we can’t stress this enough. At the end of the day – your skin is yours, and yours forever. Reap the rewards and enjoy the confidence of radiant, glowing skin this summer by enlisting the top tips and tricks from jane iredale – you can’t go wrong!
