Skincare is the most important step in having a radiant complexion. Although makeup can do a lot, the basis of a youthful, fresh look is always in taking proper care of the skin. The rich heiress Paris Hilton grew up with this advice. That is the main reason why the gorgeous blonde is now launching a line of products that will accompany you on the way to perfect skin. Dubbed ProD.N.A, the collection features four items.
“From a very young age, my mother taught me the importance of taking care of my skin. I have been obsessed with finding the best products on the market to help me look and feel young, so after years of searching I decided to create a line that can offer the absolute best results.”- said Paris in the press release.
In the brand new ProD.N.A. range, you’ll find a Dual Action Cleansing Gel, Advanced Recovery Serum, Lift & Firm Eye Cream and Face & Decolletage Cream. The ingredient list includes hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, Kakadu plum, caviar lime and more. The most intriguing part is the new complex she created with the help of scientists and chemists.
According to the brand, Hilton worked with world-renowned scientists to create the special complex, the whole line is based on. The site states: “GenoMatrix™, a revolutionary formulation of powerful enzymes derived from marine microalgae and other natural, active ingredients. This proprietary concentration penetrates deep within the layers of skin and supports the body’s natural DNA repair mechanism to counteract the effects of aging from the inside out”. In other words, the products act on the level of the DNA in the cells, preventing damage. The powerful enzymes are a part of all four releases.
The popular fashionista is an icon from the ‘00s, heiress of the well-known Hilton hotels, DJ, singer, influencer, and so much more. This is not her first dip in the beauty world. Paris already owns a makeup line and a collection of over 20 fragrances. She recently debuted her first skincare product, a rose water spray called Unicorn Mist.
The ProD.N.A. collection is now available on parishiltonskincare.com. Most of you will find the range a bit over the regular budget, but Hilton’s line sounds quite promising, at least from what we know so far. Paris made sure to include a luxury packaging, unique formula and according to her- instant results. Prices start at $29 for the cleansing gel and go up to $115 for the recovery serum. The brand still hasn’t released any information on whether they are working on other products at the moment.

Yesterday’s hype was all about GlamGlow and their first makeup product. Today in the beauty news section we have a completely opposite example of a brand who is undertaking a different action. Tarte is one of the most popular makeup brands at the moment. Fans are obsessed with their Shape Tape Concealer and Amazonian Clay Foundation. That’s why we’re more than excited to announce that Tarte is now launching a sister skincare label called Awake.
The concept of Awake is really amazing. We’re talking about products that will help your skin feel fresh and well-rested. It was inspired by busy ladies, who are always on the go and struggle to keep up with their schedule. The range offers products for a variety of skin tones. As the name suggests, your face will look awake even if you had a long night.
Awake has actually been around since 1995 but is now getting a completely different look and products. At that time their packaging was not so alluring, although the concept of organic skincare was still present. Thanks to the label’s creative director Daniel Kiyoi every single packaging today has a special meaning, intricately hinting the benefits of the products.
“The Awake Effect [the uh-weyk ih-fekt]: you can’t always get a good night’s sleep, but your skin doesn’t need to show it. Full of natural, antioxidant-rich ingredients, Awake is beauty sleep in a bottle that’s meant to optimize your routine & help your skin reach its true potential (in no time at all!). #bottledbeautysleep #awakebeauty”- says the label’s announcement.
There are already several items in the line that the beauty community can’t wait to put on a test. If you’re struggling with large pores and uneven complexion, Awake has the perfect solution. Their Pore Down Tightening Concentrate is priced at $38. It’s a silicone-free serum, which hydrates the skin, eliminates the dead skin and retexturizes it. Other highlights include a trio of “shots”, Hydra, Firma, Balance, vitamin C-infused serum, tinted lip balms and more.
Tarte’s packaging is always next-level. So the same thing applies to the Awake offerings. Everything looks so cute and cheeky. Bottles feature cute prints including tiny hearts, dots, flowers, stars. The colors are pretty, pastel and alluring. If you’ve been looking for a fairly affordable skincare label that will keep your complexion fresh and radiant, you might want to try out Awake. According to the announcement, all of their products are vegan, cruelty-free and only contain ingredients that are great for the skin.
You can start shopping the entire collection at awakebeauty.com. The prices range from $16 up to $38.

Acne can be such a nuisance that most of us have had to deal with at one point or another, or deal with on a regular basis. Thing is, not all acne is the same, and the question is, are you using the right acne treatments?
From classic pimples, to whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts, acne can be painful, annoying and make us super self-conscious. Being notoriously popular in teens thanks to hormonal changes), some are surprised when it happens to them in adulthood, but the truth is, as we get older, our bodies and care for our bodies gets more and more complex, thus making it more difficult to determine what is causing issues such as acne. Figuring out how to best treat your acne starts with figuring out why you are having this issue, or rather whats causing it, so always start by consulting a doctor or dermatologist to see what the underlying issue could be.
I was blessed with small pores and never had an issue with acne until my late twenties. Then I went through some health issues and so due to a combination of the inflammation in my body and the medications I was having to take to try and maintain my illnesses, my skin was NOT happy at all. Inflammation can just throw all sorts of things out of whack, and medications can change hormone levels (which makes already existing hormone issues even worse!), thus resulting in hormonal acne, amongst other issues. When it reached it’s peak, I had had enough of trying to treat this on my own and wanted to dig deeper into the root of the issue. A combination of help and knowledge from my nutritionist, dermatologist, and facialist, sent me in the right direction, and while I still battle health issues that will cause my skin to “act up” from time to time, I have a better grip on it now. Below you will see some of my favorite tips and products, and learn why they are beneficial to your skincare and fighting acne.
Start From The Inside: This is a given, what we put into our bodies will show in many ways, one of these of course being via our skin. I’m not saying eat salads all day, every day, but making heavy, greasy foods a special occasion type of treat is one way to start. I LOVE LOVE LOVE fudge, but it does not love me back. Every now again, I go to the Farmer’s Market here in LA, and pay a visit to Little John’s Sweet Shop for a good sized piece of rocky road fudge that I can pick at for the next following days. It makes me happy for the moment, but you can bet that within the next couple of days I am going to have a couple of really ugly pimples make an appearance. One thing I have worked into my day to day routine is to consume lemon water. I mean all day, every day. I am planning to write an article very soon about all the benefits of lemon water, but for now, know that it is so good for detoxing your body, and in case you’ve forgotten, our skin is our biggest organ in our body. Plus the water keeps the skin hydrated, and I learned from my dermatologist that one cause of acne is dry skin! I was shocked because acne is basically oil-clogged pores. Thing is, when your skin is dry its working overtime to produce extra oils underneath to keep it hydrated, resulting in clogged pores.
