It’s National Skincare Awareness Month

If some of the upcoming fall makeup trends have inspired you, then you know that one thing is for sure, this season fresh face beauty is in! And since September is National Skincare Awareness Month, we’ve decided that this is the perfect time to help you better understand your skin and your skin care routine. Let PÜR, and Global Education Director and Licensed Esthetician at PÜR Lynnette Cole, help your skin look and feel its best as we move into National Skincare Awareness Month and beyond… because healthy-looking skin is always in, regardless of the season.

Understanding Your Skin Type


So, let us start by saying that there is no such thing as “normal skin.” Skin is always evolving and can change over time, even on a day-to-day basis. People with this skin type tend to have the appearance of a more balanced complexion with a healthy oil/water balance.


Oily skin can secrete more oils, giving you the feel and appearance of shiny or greasy-looking skin. People with oily skin will often be more blemish-prone.


Your skin ages and over time and could develop the appearance of wrinkles or sagging skin. And although we cannot turn back the hands of time, we can help address the early signs of aging and help your skin appear fresher and more youthful-looking.


Dry skin can occur at any age and with any skin type. People with dry skin will sometimes have more sensitive or drier-looking skin. We recommend those with dry skin to use gentle skin care products that help improve the texture and feel of skin.


Those with combination skin have both normal and oily areas, often with excess oil production typically occurring in the t-zone.

Addressing Skincare Concerns


Normal skin types could benefit from ingredients like Aloe and Energy Complex, to help soothe skin and rejuvenate skin for a fresher look and feel.

Pro Tip: Cleanse the day away with Melt Away and Forever Clean to help remove dirt and debris while nourishing the skin.


Dry skin types require ingredients like Agave Extract and Sodium Hyaluronate, that lock in lasting hydration for a luminous glow.

Pro Tip: Add drops of Precious Metals Shimmering Dry Oil Elixir into your favorite moisturizer for an added boost of hydration. We recommend the 4-in-1 Cloud Cream or Submerge Overnight Anti-Pollution Moisturizer


Combination skin types require ingredients that help promote overall skin wellness, like the Energy Complex and Ceretin® Complex.

Pro Tip: Try the Balancing Act Mattifying Skin Perfecting Powder and Matte Mist face mist to help control excess oil in the T-zone. The CBD Hydrating Skin Primer is also great for combination skin.


Oily skin types benefit from ingredients that help refine skin texture and tone, like salicylic acid, for visibly brighter, healthier-looking skin.

Pro Tip: Use a detoxifying mask, like Downtown Detox, followed with the Submerge Overnight Anti-Pollution Moisturizer 2-3 times a week to deep cleanse congested pores.


Aging skin requires moisture and skin-brightening ingredients to help freshen the appearance of aging skin.

Pro Tip: Use a brightening serum like Ceretin™ Serum Age-Defying Concentrate  4-5 times per week followed with a moisturizer with anti-aging properties like the Get A Lift Age-Defying Moisturizer. Follow these steps with a nourishing eye treatment like the Eyedentity Luxe Firming Eye Cream.

Help Protect Your Skin from Blue Light

It’s no secret that we are using technology for almost everything these days, and with more people working or studying from home, our screen time exposure has increased significantly. With the average person spending 2-4 hours a day on their phone, and an average of 6 hours a day behind a computer or tablet, we are possibly exposing ourselves to more blue light than ever before. But what can we do to protect ourselves? Most people know to put on sunscreen before going outside. Still, they have no idea that it can be beneficial to protect their skin indoors from the blue light that is often emitted by electronic devices, like computers, tablets and smartphones. Blue light, also known as (HIGH ENERGY VISIBLE) light, has studies showing that it can cause premature aging and cause damage to the skin.

Set Yourself Up for a Productive Work from Home Day!

In today’s ever-evolving work from home environment, it can be easy to become distracted. Many people will be working and studying from home for the first time, and staying on task and in a good mindset can be a little challenging. At PÜR we understand how important it is to have a healthy work/life balance and just because your environment has changed, doesn’t mean your routine has to.

Here are 5 tips to help you develop an effective work from home routine

  1. Wake Up Early

It can be tempting to hit the snooze button and roll out of bed at the last minute but waking up late can affect your routine. Try getting up at the same time you normally do for work or school and take advantage of not having to sit in traffic. Spend this time getting your head in the right space by taking a mindful approach to your morning. This is also the perfect time to set your priorities for the day.

2. Ease into Your Day

After you’ve put on your pot of coffee try stretching or meditating. This can help to set you up for a more productive day by helping to melt away stress and tension early on. We recommend using a face mask during this time to prep your skin for the day. The Blue Agave Mask is perfect for hydration. This ultra-refreshing face mask is packed with our PÜR proprietary Energy Complex of green tea, ginseng and Vitamin B that helps smooth the appearance of skin and refine the look of skin tone and texture.

Or If you are looking to help detox your skin, try our cult favorite Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque. Maximize your everyday regimen by adding this detoxifying mask into your skin care routine to help refine the look of pores, exfoliate away dead skin cells and clarify the appearance of skin with a blend of natural clays and soothing botanical ingredients.

3. Get Dressed for the Day

Now, who doesn’t love sweatpants and messy hair? As tempting as this may be, getting dressed, following your normal skin care routine and putting on a little makeup can help give you more energy and motivation. Plus, if your boss decides to do a team video chat you can ensure you are looking your best! Go for a natural look or… if you’re in the mood, glam it up! Now is the perfect time to experiment with your looks!

4. Take Breaks

Sitting behind a computer all day can cause stiffness and fatigue, try stepping away every few hours to stretch your legs or grab another cup of tea or coffee. You can also take this time to go over your priorities for the day, check-in with your team and make sure you are staying on task. Use this time to reflect and readjust if needed.

5. Choose a Stop time

It’s much easier to stay on task when you are in the office but when working from home the lines can become blurred, therefore it is important to choose a time to end your day. This is the time to ensure that you have executed your priority list, check-in with your team and “pack up” for the day. As much as you may want to work all night overexerting yourself can actually have an adverse effect. Your boss and your team are relying on you so make sure you get plenty of rest after your work is done.

Social Distancing? Stay in Zen Mode with a Spa Day in

With everyone practicing responsible social distancing and spending more time indoors, it can be easy to go a little stir crazy (especially for the social butterflies out there). It’s time to get creative with your time at home. Take this as an opportunity to spend time pampering yourself by planning something fun, like an at-home spa day! It’s time to put self-care back at the top of our priority list and PÜR has you covered.

We’ve put together some awesome spa day/night ideas for you, so light some candles, take a deep breath and get ready for some relaxing, at-home me time.

Set the Mood

Creating a tranquil and relaxing environment takes a little preparation.

  • Find a quiet and comfortable area where you can tune out the world and relax. This can be a bedroom, den or large bathroom, just make sure it is free of clutter and as quiet as possible.
  • Light some candles or place a few drops of essential oil* into a diffuser*, this helps to create that spa-like environment. *Don’t have either? Add a few drops of See No More Deep Pore Cleanser to a sink or tub full of water, and let the peppermint aroma fill the room.
  • Play relaxing music. You can find thousands of songs and playlists on your phone, laptop or portable device to help further set the mood.
  • Get cozy! Pull out your fave fluffy robe and slippers or slip on some loose clothing so you can feel as comfortable as possible.

Gather your Spa Necessities

Start by CLEANSING your skin. Based on your skin type PÜR has some amazing cleansers.

  • If you have normal or dry skin we recommend using Forever Clean Gentle Cleanser. Forever Clean gently lathers away dirt, excess oil and stubborn makeup with maximum foam that’s sulfate-free. The clear, vegan-friendly formula encourages a healthier-looking complexion, as it quickly breaks down unwanted daily impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oil… how refreshing! 
  • If you have oily or combo skin try using, See No More Deep Pore Cleanser.  See No More Deep Pore Cleanser is uniquely formulated to deep clean and clarify the look of congested, blemish-prone skin, as it works to help fight against the potential skin-damaging effects caused by exposure to daily, high energy visible blue light. Powerhouse ingredients, like lactic acid and salicylic acid, gently exfoliate and clarifyskin, as soothing peppermint oil instantly refreshes and cools the skin for an extra pampering effect that feels oh-so-good! 
  • EXFOLIATE and slough off dead skin cells, revealing a fresh and more radiant-looking complexion. We recommend using the Purple Pore Punisher. Pores beware! Purple Pore Punisher gel face mask works hard to detoxify the skin while gently removing impurities that often form because of daily stress and pollution. 
  • We love multi-masking so follow up with a hydrating mask. Try the Holographic Hydrating Sheet Mask Set. What it is: A two-piece holographicface mask that helps lock in key ingredients and moisturizers with foil for optimal results.

After deep cleaning, exfoliating and masking it’s time to MOISTURIZE.

Moisture is essential to skin health and as The Complexion Authority™ we have several moisture-rich products that suit your skin needs.

Get in Zen Mode

Now that you have set the mood and deep cleaned your skin, the rest is up to you! Get creative! Give yourself a much-needed manicure or pedicure using butter London nail products.

Or just take the rest of the day for quiet time. We spend so much of our lives on autopilot, stressed, busy running around and never taking the time to care for self. Use this time at home to rest, reflect and stay zen.

Skin Types 101: Everything You Need to Know About Different Skin Types

As The Complexion Authority®, we know a thing or two when it comes to achieving beautiful-looking skin. Our skin, which is the largest organ on the body, is the base of any makeup routine and we want you to feel confident selecting products that are geared towards your individual skin type. There are four distinguishable skin types recognized by the beauty and skincare professionals, alike: dry, oily, combination and normal. This deep dive will help you identify your own skin type and build a custom regimen for your own unique needs.

Understanding the skin types:

  • Dry skin types produce less sebum oil than normal skin types.
  • Oily skin types produce exceed sebum
  • Combination skin contains both normal and oily areas, with excess oil production typically occurring in the t-zone.
  • Normal skin has a healthy oil/water balance with very limited blemishes.

While it’s important to understand which category your skin type is, these classifications are not the only means to determining which products would work best for your skin. There are several skin conditions that our products formulate to treat.

Understanding the skin condition:

  • Sensitivity, which is characterized by redness and irritation
  • Dehydration, which is characterized by tightness, dry patches and flakes
  • Blemishes, which is characterized by pesky blemishes and clogged pores
  • Aging, which is characterized by fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin
  • Uneven texture or tone, which is characterized by dark or light spots.

Bearing these conditions in mind, when looking for skincare and complexion beauty products, look for key word indicators that treat the issues, or conditions, you may be dealing with. The skin conditions are interchangeable and not unique to the skin types.

Understanding the products needed

  • Dry skin types
    • Dry skin types require ingredients, like Agave Extract and Sodium Hyaluronate, that lock in lasting hydration for a luminous glow.
    • Pro Tip: Add drops of Precious Metals Shimmering Dry Oil Elixir into your favorite complexion products for added moisture.
  • Oily skin types
    • Oily skin types benefit from ingredients that help refine skin texture and tone, like salicylic acid, for visibly clearer, healthier-looking skin.  
    • Pro Tip: Use a detoxifying mask, like Dirty Girl, 2-3 times a week to deep cleanse congested pores. 
  • Combination skin types
    • Combination skin types require ingredients that promote overall skin wellness, like the Energy Complex and Ceretin® Complex.
    • Pro Tip: Try the Balancing Act Mattifying Skin Perfecting Powder to control excess oil in the t-zone.
  • Normal skin types
    • Normal skin types benefit from ingredients, like Aloe and Energy Complex, to help soothe skin and rejuvenate it for a fresher look and feel.
    •  Pro Tip: Cleanse the day away with Forever Clean Gentle Cleanser to melt away makeup, dirt and debris, while nourishing the skin.
