Double cleansing, as the term indicates, is the process of cleansing your skin twice in order to remove any dirt, makeup and sunscreen from your skin. Keep reading to find out why you NEED to be double-cleansing in order to get the most out of your skincare routine.
Double cleansing, as the term indicates, is the process of cleansing your skin twice in order to remove any dirt, makeup and sunscreen from your skin. Why is it so important to get everything off your face? Well, if you don’t start your nighttime skincare routine with a blank canvas, every product, every ingredient that you apply on your skin, will not work to the best of its abilities because it’s blocked by whatever dirt or makeup that is left on your skin. You’re basically throwing money down the drain by not properly cleansing. Double cleansing is especially important at night since, as we all know, your skin repairs itself when you sleep. Don’t rob yourself of this crucial period!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The goal of the first cleanse is to soften and break down the makeup, dirt, and sunscreen on your skin. Even on days when you don’t wear makeup, you should still double cleanse to get rid of any sunscreen on your face. Many sunscreens can be clogging for your pores, which is why you need to make sure you get it off at the end of the day.
Now that you’ve loosened everything on your skin and rinsed it off, your second cleanse is meant to get rid of anything left behind. For this step, you can go in with your regular face cleanser, or one with active ingredients designed to treat a specific skin concern, such as a cleanser with AHAs and BHAS.
WHAT PRODUCTS TO LOOK FOR
For the first cleanse, it’s important to look for cleansing oils, balms or milk cleansers. These products will, when applied to dry skin, emulsify and loosen up everything on the skin. Those of you who are nervous about using an oil or balm on your skin, don’t worry! You’ll remove any trace of the first cleanse when you go in with your second, water-based cleanser. Our best-selling cleansing oil is the Light Work Cleansing Oil from Pai Skincare. As for balms, Kat Burki’s Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm is one of our favourites!

Winter is the season for self-care. It’s cold out, the air is dry and the days are short. All we want to do is stay inside with a warm cup of tea, take a bath and indulge in a lengthy beauty routine. On self-care nights, masks are a must. We finally have the time, why not treat ourselves?

ULTRA PURIFYING CLAY MASK
Vivier’s Ultra Purifying Clay Mask is carefully crafted from red and white kaolin clay, alpha hydroxy acids and salicylic acid to draw out impurities, firm the skin and absorb excess sebum. This mask helps reveal flawless-looking skin without excess shine. If you have oily, acne-prone skin or are dealing with clogged pores, this may be the perfect mask for you.
The right amount of exfoliation is key to achieving a glowing complexion. In fact, an excess of dead skin cells can cause the skin to look dull. A once or twice a week exfoliating mask like the Micro-Peel Mask from Pro-Derm can be just what you need! Formulated with glycolic acid, this mask will help improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of pores and reveal a fresh, glowing complexion!
Every day, our skin is exposed to environmental toxins such as air pollution, smog, cigarette smoke, gas exhaust, among other things. This exposure can cause premature aging of the skin, acne, collagen breakdown, hyperpigmentation, and other skin conditions. For that reason, it’s important to find products that combat this damage. Environ’s Anti-Pollution Masque is formulated with Japanese charcoal and special botanicals to help absorb pollutant impurities. Your skin will feel revitalized and smooth after this treatment mask!
SUPREME MOISTURE MASK
NUORI’s highly concentrated, yet lightweight moisturizing mask is the ultimate treatment for dehydrated and distressed skin. Grape and Damask Rose waters combined with natural Hyaluronic Acid effectively restore moisture levels, while botanical Squalene and Betaine strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Anti-inflammatory chamomile extract reduces irritation and restore suppleness, while Vitamin B3 revives skin tone, improves elasticity, and prevents moisture loss.
ULTRA HYDRATING MASK
This is another great hydrating mask for dry or dehydrated skin. Vivier’s Ultra Hydrating Mask is formulated with an exclusive blend of rich vitamins and extracts. This luxurious mask helps plump the skin, diminish signs of fatigue and soften fine lines and wrinkles. Restore your skin’s natural radiance in only a few minutes!
Dealing with hyperpigmentation? Or in need of a skin boost? Sahajan’s Brightening Mask is formulated with 100% natural ingredients to increase skin’s radiance. With potent natural and amino acid rich ingredients to help balance, tone and nourish the skin and AHAs to gently exfoliate, that coveted dewy glow is yours for the taking! Suitable for all skin types.
In need of a good detox? This at-home Charcoal mask uses a blend of Japanese white charcoal, clay and the naturally-occurring mineral Magnesium Aluminum silicate to minimize the appearance of pores while absorbing excess dirt, oil and debris trapped deep in the pores. Perfect way to wash off the week and start fresh!
HYDRATING B5 MASK
A cult-favourite SkinCeuticals product for a reason! Enhanced with a unique complex containing constituents of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), this weekly hydration treatment re-establishes the water balance critical for maintaining skin metabolic functions at optimal levels. An intensive, effective hydrating mask for every skin type!
CURTAIN CALL MASK
Brightening masks can sometimes be harsh on sensitive skin, due to their acid contents. If this is the case for you, try Pai Skincare’s Curtain Call Mask. This Rosehip fueled rescuer boosts tired skin leaving it radiant and dewy. In ten minutes your complexion is audience-ready. Formulated to glide on evenly and polish off easily with the enclosed Muslin Cloth, the buttery cream leaves skin soft and dewy. Packed with calming botanicals and entirely free from irritants, it is ideal for sensitive or reactive skin!

As you may have heard, we just launched Egyptian Magic at Etiket (Yay!). Ever heard of it? This cult-favourite product has been raved about for over 20 years because of its ability to deeply hydrate and repair the skin quickly and with natural ingredients. In fact, this all-purpose balm contains only 6 ingredients: olive oil, honey, bee pollen, bees wax, royal jelly and bee propolis.
Most of us will use this balm as a face and body moisturizer, or as a cure for any skin burns or irritations. However, we’ve recently discovered that Egyptian Magic serves many other purposes, that’s why they advertise it as an all-purpose cream. Do you want to learn how to get the most out of this product? You’ve come to the right place. Let’s discover the 16 different ways to use Egyptian Magic.
1. AMAZING MOISTURIZER
People often start using Egyptian Magic to solve a skin problem such as a rash, a burn or a scar, and then continue using it as a face and body moisturizer Egyptian Magic recommends using it twice a day, as it does wonders for creating soft, smooth skin. It’s great addition to the winter skincare routine!
2. HAIR CONDITIONNER
One of the most delightful discoveries is how beneficial Egyptian Magic can be as a moisturizing hair conditioner – either on a regular basis or as a conditioning hot pack. Egyptian Magic’s all-natural ingredients will restore luster to your hair, replenish its natural oils, tame frizz and condition split ends.
3. LIP BALM
Egyptian Magic works wonders as a nourishing and repairing lip balm! The natural ingredients deeply nourish your lips and give them new life.
4. AFTER SHAVE
Your skin is sensitive especially after shaving. In many cases you may have scars and/or irritation as a side effect. Use Egyptian Magic as an after-shave for a soothing effect. Egyptian Magic contains no alcohol or chemicals that might cause your skin to dry out.
5. AFTER SUN SOLUTION
Egyptian Magic is often used as an after sun lotion. The cream gives a soothing effect and your sunburned skin may embrace the natural ingredients.
6. VAGINAL MOISTURIZER AND LUBRICANT
Yes. You read correctly. Egyptian Magic states that according to many gynecologists, such as Dr. Uzzi Rees of Beverly Hills, CA, Egyptian Magic works well as a natural vaginal moisturizer and lubricant. Huh!
7. HAND AND CUTICULE CREAM
Egyptian Magic is a great hand and cuticle moisturizer. In fact, many use it to treat their nails and cuticles, as the balm softens rough skin. Rub some Egyptian Magic on your hands and cuticles just before going to sleep to find nourished, soft and revived hands in the morning.
8. MAKEUP REMOVER
Egyptian Magic is also used as a safe, all-natural makeup remover. This balm works wonders as the first step in your double-cleanse routine. Start by massaging the balm into the skin to loosen any makeup or dirt from the day and follow up with a gentle cleanser to make sure everything has been removed. Not only is your makeup gone, your skin is moisturized and ready for bed!
9. EYE CREAM
Struggling with dry skin around your eyes? Dab some Egyptian Magic and let it do its work! Your eye contour will be hydrated in no time!
10. MASSAGE BALM
Egyptian Magic’s melting texture is ideal for massages. Warm up the balm between your hands until it transforms into an oil and massage on skin. Just relax, its moisturizing ingredients will soften and nourish your skin.
11. TATTOO AFTERCARE
After getting a tattoo, apply Egyptian Magic to the area to help with moisture, to reduce scabbing and to soothe itching and redness.
12. DIAPER RASH
Egyptian Magic is safe to use on babies and infants. As a non-irritating and petroleum-free formula, it is found to effectively deal with diaper rash, while moisturizing and soothing the baby’s sensitive skin. However, as with any skin care product, please consult your pediatrician before use and do not apply if your baby may have an allergy to bee products.
13. DURING AND AFTER PREGNANCY
Egyptian Magic claims that their balm helps with stretch marks and cracked nipples. Apply it on breasts, belly and thighs during pregnancy to prevent stretch marks and to keep your skin soft and supple.
14. MAKEUP PRIMER
Egyptian Magic can be used as a makeup primer as well! Who knew?! The brand claims that many makeup artists rely on it at every Fashion Week to create a dewy and glowing make-up look. They apply the balm on the entire face or to highlight specific features such as cheekbones, eyelids or eyebrows. You can even use it to set your eyebrows or mix a liquid illuminator with your Egyptian Magic and use as a highlighter for a light contouring!
15. HYDRATING MASK
If your skin is feeling dry, tight or dull, apply Egyptian Magic as a face mask and let the natural ingredients sink in. Apply a layer of Egyptian Magic on your skin, leave for 30 minutes and remove with a hot cloth. Your skin should wake up feeling much more nourished!
16. CRACKED HEELS AND ELBOWS
Egyptian Magic can be applied to any dry area from head to toe! Here’s a tip shared by the brand: before going to bed, rub some Egyptian Magic into heels and put on a pair of socks. You’ll wake up in the morning with nourished and restored feet!
As we enter a new year, we're looking back on the products that stole our hearts in 2020. From hair care essentials, to skincare and fragrance cult-favourites, 2020 was a good year for the beauty industry. Let's discover the products!
As we enter a new year, we’re looking back on the products that stole our hearts in 2020. From hair care essentials, to skincare and fragrance cult-favourites, 2020 was a good year for the beauty industry. The current pandemic has forced many of us to curate our beauty shelves and to embrace a less-is-more approach with quality over quantity. Now, let’s discover the products!
For most of us, spending more time at home meant we had more time to indulge in luxurious self-care nights and lengthy skincare routines. At-home treatment devices and targeted face masks became must-haves, while serums and creams designed to promote the skin’s overall health and wellness were flying off the shelves. The name of the game last year was skin health. Antioxidants, Sunscreen, Hyaluronic Acid we’re all integral components of achieving it.
Some of last year’s favourites are Vintner’s Daughter’s Active Botanical Serum, for example. Formulated with 22 active botanicals, this serum delivers the most optimal concentrations of nourishing Phytonutrients, balancing Minerals, Age-Defying Antioxidants, strengthening Phytoceramides and Amino Acids, replenishing Fatty Acids, and brightening Vitamins to deliver powerful skin nutrition in one step. The ZIIP device was another popular item last year. The at-home treatment uses nanocurrents and microcurrents to encourage cells to create more collagen and elastin.
You may be surprised, but 2020 was an amazing year for fragrances. Perhaps it’s because we could finally test different scents from the comfort of our home before taking them out for a spin, or maybe because spraying a fragrance on in the morning helped us feel more put together. In any case, 2020 was good to fragrances. Some of last year’s bestsellers were new, while others have been around for some time, but had us coming back for more.
Gallivant, for example, came out with a new scent called Bukhara. A woody, floral orris perfume, composed with start perfumer Ralf Schwieger. Musk Deer from Zoologist was another new player on the scene, with notes of synthetic musks, natural oud and florals.
This past year was all about great skin, bold eyes and thick brows. In fact, our entire makeup routines became centered around our face masks and zoom meetings. Most of the time, our lips are hidden, so forget lipstick. Our eyes, skin and brows, however, became the main focus. Tools that help you de-puff and attain a natural glow, like Gua Shas and Jade Rollers, we’re also popular.
In the same way the pandemic has forced us to look at how we take care of our skin, it’s also forced us to look at how we treat our hair and scalp. In fact, 2020 shook us up in many ways including how we looked after our hair. Many of us made the decision to go natural, gray made a big comeback as did curls. Many of us also turned to touch-up products to hide the re-growth before our salons re-opened. Hair masks and scalp treatments and dry shampoos also became popular as we discovered that hair care was really all about looking after our hair!
Who doesn’t want glowing skin? It’s why many of us spend countless amounts in skincare and makeup products every year. While it is a goal that many of us strive to achieve, the steps required to reach that goal are unclear. How does on get that glow? Here's how...
Who doesn’t want glowing skin? In fact, the word ‘glow’ is probably one of the most popular terms in the beauty industry. Everyone wants their skin to glow. It’s why many of us spend countless amounts in skincare and makeup products every year. While it is a goal that many of us strive to achieve, the steps required to reach that goal are unclear. With different sources offering up different answers, how does one get that glow?
We’re here to steer you in the right direction towards achieving that Gigi Hadid glow you’ve always wanted! Keep reading to discover the steps!
Vitamin C, like SkinCeuticals’ Phloretin C F or C E Ferulic, are a must in everyone’s skincare routine. This antioxidant protects your skin against free radical damage, all the while improving hydration and increasing collagen production in the skin. It’s also known for its brightening properties. The word brightening is another hugely researched word in the beauty industry. Bright rhymes with glow. Well, not really, but you know what I mean! Use a few drops of this antioxidant on in the morning after your cleanser and let it do its magic!
Keeping the skin moisturized is key to achieving a glow. Two ingredients you want to look for are Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin. Both aid in locking moisture into the skin. There’s a common misconception that you can only get hydration from a moisturizer. While face creams are a great way to boost the skin’s hydration, other products can do just as good a job! In fact, many turn to hydrating serums, such as the H.A. Intensifier from SkinCeuticals to boost their skin’s hydration. Others turn to hydrating toners such as PCA’s Hydrating Toner, or even face oils like Pai Skincare’s Viper’s Gloss Age Confidence Echium & Amaranth Face Oil. If your moisturizer isn’t doing enough, it may be a good idea to incorporate another hydrating product!
A dull, lackluster complexion can be a sign that you need to exfoliate. In fact, exfoliation is a process that helps you get rid of the dead skin cells at the surface of the skin, helping you reveal a fresh, glowing layer beneath. With time, continued exfoliation can smooth rough patches, fade acne scars, dark spots, reduce redness and brighten the overall complexion. Exfoliation also helps your skincare products absorb better into the skin by unclogging your pores. I think it’s pretty clear why this step is a must in achieving that sought-after glow. Start by exfoliating once a week and slowly increase to 2-3 times a week, depending on how your skin reacts.
Face masks are a great way to give your skin a quick boost! Not only can they help you maintain a glowing complexion by providing consistent hydration and/or exfoliation, but they can’t help you achieve an instant glow as well. For example, Consonant’s HydrExtreme Charcoal Sheet Mask delivers high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid to reveal a soft and luminous complexion immediately. Environ’s Tri Biobotanical Revival Masque uses a unique combination of acids to rejuvenate the skin, revealing a younger, fresher and glowing complexion. Discover our wide range of face masks to get your glow!
Facials are always a good idea. If you feel like your products aren’t doing enough, it may be time to seek the help of professionals! In our boutique, we offer a wide selection of facials that aid in boosting the skin’s natural glow. Among these options, you will find our Brightening HydraFacial and our Tata Harper Instant Glow Peel. Both designed to tackle uneven skin tone and texture to reveal a fresh, smooth, glowing complexion. There are also more in-depth treatments that can be done in a medical clinic, like microneedling treatments and resurfacing lasers.
CONSISTENCY IS KEY
To maintain a healthy glow, it goes without saying that you have to put in time and effort over time. A consistent skincare routine is part of that. Making sure you double-cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize and use an SPF daily is crucial to attaining a glowing complexion. Trust me, put in the work and your skin will reward you.
I know it’s cliché but you are what you eat. In fact, your lifestyle shows up on your face. If it hasn’t yet, it will in the long run! A healthy lifestyle means eating well, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep. Oh, and drinking lots of water! How you live now sets the tone for how your skin will look later.
Retinol is often referred to as a powerhouse ingredient. The reason it’s referred to as such is because it is strong. Its strength is what makes it effective, but also what makes it dangerous. Keep reading to learn how to properly tame this skincare beast.
Retinol: an ingredient heard of by many and understood by few. It’s often referred to as a powerhouse ingredient which makes it all the more mysterious and alluring.
Many of you may be sold on the idea of incorporating it into your routine without actually knowing what it does or how to use it. Although I don’t blame you for quickly jumping on the retinol bandwagon, I can’t stress how important it is to understand this ingredient in its entirety so as not to damage your skin. The reason it’s referred to as a powerhouse ingredient is because it is strong. Its strength is what makes it effective, but also what makes it dangerous. Keep reading to learn how to properly tame this skincare beast.
WHAT IS RETINOL?
Retinol (also known as vitamin A) is an over-the-counter form of retinoid, which is usually prescribed by a doctor. Retinols work by increasing collagen production as well as increasing the rate of cell turnover. New York dermatologist Shari Marchbein, M.D. mentions that retinols ‘also help treat acne, blackheads, and clogged pores.’
Because retinol is an over-the-counter retinoid, it is milder than prescription retinoids which makes it ideal for at-home use. Ideally, one should slowly build up their resistance to retinol and eventually apply it every single night. Key work here is slowly. This is a process, folks. Patience is required.
WHO IS IT FOR?
As mentioned above, retinol serves many purposes. It prevents wrinkles, brightens dull skin, treats acne and fades dark spots. With that logic, retinol can help everyone from mature skin, to acne sufferers and anyone in between! Over time, retinol can help increase the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis. Not only does this ingredient provide short term results, but it also aids in the long-term health and appearance of your skin.
If you have perfect skin with no issues whatsoever, lucky you! In your case, most dermatologists would recommend you start using retinol in your thirties, just as your collagen production begins to slow down. In fact, as dermatologist Mona Gohara, M.D., associate clinical professor at Yale University explains: ‘Up until your early-30s, your cells turn over every 28 days, creating a fresh layer of untouched, pristine skin. But after you hit your mid-30s, your cell regeneration slows down, turning over every 50, 60, or 70 days. Retinol, however, sinks into your skin and speeds up cell turnover, causing your body to churn out fresher, smoother skin again.’
HOW DO I USE IT?
We asked our medical aesthetician, Paule, to inform us on how to properly incorporate this ingredient into our routines. For beginners, she recommends starting off by using it twice a week, every 3 nights for the first 2 weeks. If your skin is tolerating it well- i.e. isn’t too red or irritated, then you can add another night per week to this regimen. As time goes on, you can maintain that same time frame: increasing by one night every 2 weeks until you’re up to using it every single night.
If you’ve been using your retinol every night for a few months, and you feel like you want to increase your retinol strength, you absolutely can. However, be sure to start the process all over again. Using it twice a week, every 3 nights for the first 2 weeks and increasing slowly. I cannot stress how important it is to go slowly, as retinol can burn like no other. Trust me.
If you feel like your skin is dry when using retinol, you can apply your night cream or moisturizer on top of it, 10 minutes after you applied your layer of retinol.
IS IT SAFE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?
For those of you who have sensitive skin, Paule recommends using retinol with a slow release system. A slow release system ensures that the active ingredient is released into your skin in small doses over time and not all at once, which can cause irritation in some people. She also recommends starting at a low percentage. The SkinMedica retinol 0.25 and the SkinCeuticals 0.3 are great for beginners with sensitive skin. PCA Skin also offers a retinol treatment designed specifically for sensitive skin. Paule also mentions that people with sensitive skin should start by using retinol once a week and should add a layer of moisture on top to soothe and hydrate the skin. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use.

The products are the Foaming Gel, AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer, PM Therapy Moisturizer and the Renew Eye Gel. This skincare lineup offers the same no-nonsense philosophy as their sunscreens: sensitivity-free, non-comedogenic and safe for all skin types.

PM THERAPY FACIAL MOISTURIZER
The EltaMD PM Therapy is a nighttime moisturizer packed with ingredients designed to moisturize, repair and restore your skin while you sleep. In fact, ceramides strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier, while niacinamide and antioxidants work to improve the skin color and tone, while also speeding up the metabolism to maximize the nightly skin repair process. Small rice protein peptides stimulate cell growth and collagen formation, resulting in even more skin elasticity. As it nurtures, revitalizes and oxygenates the skin, wrinkles fade and skin tone improves, resulting in a smoother, fresher appearance. Doesn’t get much better than that, right? It can all sound a bit like a sales pitch but at the end of the day, ingredients don’t lie! And EltaMD is all about their ingredient list.
