Must-have Masking Tips to keep your skin in check in the cold!

By nügg Beauty
on February 02, 2018

Winter is still going in full force! These frosty days and nights will definitely have you looking for dry skin relief. Exposure to extreme temperature causes water in the skins surface to evaporate, causing damage to the barrier function of the skin.

Do not let dry skin and chapped lips stand a chance and stay hydrated! Rather than continuously putting loads of moisturizer on your skin, try these products that will gently treat and condition skin for harsh weather.

Hydrating Face Mask: This product boosts your skin hydration level and removes dry, flaky spots allowing you to feel comfortable in your own skin, an absolute must for dry skin! Use as an overnight mask by applying a thick layer, removing the excess after 10 to 15 minutes, and leaving rest overnight. You can also apply a thin layer of the mask under make-up in the morning to protect your skin during the day. Apply the Hydrating Face Mask to your hands at night as you would a hand cream. Intensify the effect by wearing thin cotton gloves over the mask overnight. You can also bring the Hydrating Face Mask on the go with the facial mask pods to continue keeping your skin hydrated throughout the day!

 Hydrating Lip Mask: Turn dry, chapped lips into smooth, kissable lips by using our Hydrating Lip Mask as an overnight treatment. The Hydrating Lip Mask can be used day, night or as often as used. all natural & vegan and also add cruelty-free.

Exfoliating Lip Scrub: Use the Exfoliating Lip Smoother during the day. After applying the Exfoliating Lip Scrub, just let the sugar and jojoba beads naturally dissolve for the scrub to double as a protective balm. Our lip scrub made of all natural ingredients that exfoliate your dry, chapped lips and remove any flakes for an ultra smooth look and feel. When all of your lip scrub has been used up, repurpose the Lip Smoother case and use it as a travel container for your moisturizer. You will always be ready for the cold, dry winter!

Social Responsibility During The Holidays

Social Responsibility During The Holidays

The holiday season often places too much focus on consumerism, as opposed to spreading support and positivity to those near and far. Although we are a young company, giving back to the community has always been incredibly important to us from day one. No matter what the future may hold or how much we grow, this will always ring true as one of our core beliefs. As a company run by women, one of our primary focuses is female equality & empowerment.

Our promise is to always treat people with kindness, to do business in a kind way and give back to people who are in need. We believe in working hard and being humble, while exercising social responsibility in all that we do.

We have committed to donating a minimum of 1% of our profits or 2.5% of our web sales (whichever number is higher) to causes we believe in such as:

Cancer and careers

Support for people with cancer who are trying to manage their cancer and their career

 Long Island Harvest 

Long Island's largest hunger relief organization

She Can

An organization that identifies high-potential, low-income female students with top academic rankings from Cambodia and Rwanda for scholarships

Girls on The Run 

A non-profit organization that focuses on the development of young girls

How are you giving back to your community this year? We encourage you to look for any and all opportunities to make positive impacts on society and the environment. Volunteer at your local soup kitchen or animal shelter. Sign up for a highway clean up. Donate old clothes and blankets to a homeless shelter. There are countless ways to leave your mark - after all, the greatest gift is to give back!

Wishing all of our supporters health and happiness during the holiday season!

Thanksgiving Detox

By nügg Beauty
on November 27, 2017

Happy #maskmonday! Looking for ways naturally detox after your Thanksgiving festivities? We have got you covered with 5 tips for a post-Thanksgiving detox!

  1. Practice yoga or meditate.

Detoxifying our mind and body go hand-in-hand. While we eliminate putting toxic things into our bodies, it’s also important we dispose of existing toxins – both mental and physical. We recommend tuning into Yoga With Adriene's YouTube channel, which has videos catered to specific groups (ie. Teachers, golf players, people with migraines, etc.) or downloading a meditation podcast. 

  1. Go for a walk.

Start your New Years Resolutions early and get out for a walk. An oxygenated body is much more able to naturally rid itself of toxins. Even a 20 to 30 minute walk will get your blood flowing and set your digestive organs into motion. Make sure you stretch before and after! 

  1. Drink water with lemon or ginger.

Enjoy a room temperature glass of water with lemon or ginger. The lemon will get your digestive system moving and flushes out toxins, while ginger eases nausea and settles an upset stomach. Looking to make drinking water a little more fun? Invest in a water bottle that infuses without the mess. 

  1. Go vegan or vegetarian.

Even if you can't make the permanent commitment, a 3-4 day vegan or vegetarian diet high in fruits and vegetables delivers vitamins, minerals and fiber to your digestive system, which are essential in eradicating built-up waste. 

  1. Use our Detoxifying Face Mask to relieve your pores.

Skin can be aggravated by travel, food, stress and more - all of which can be a part of the holidays! Charcoal and kaolin clay draw out impurities and help control shine, while oatmeal, zinc and aloe juice help soothe the skin. This mask also makes for a super fun selfie! 

All of our products contain over 93% natural or naturally derived ingredients and use NO damaging chemical emulsifiers, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colors, mineral oil or parabens. Rest assured you won't find any toxic chemicals. 

Very best,

nugg Beauty team

Celebrate Thanksgiving with nügg!

By nügg Beauty
on November 27, 2017

Did you know Thanksgiving is National Eat a Cranberry Day? Feed your face with our 93% natural Exfoliating Face Mask - formulated with cranberry seed oil!

Who should exfoliate, you may ask? Just about everyone!

For anyone prone to acne and clogged pores, exfoliation should consistently be included in your skincare routine restore the balance of naturally produced sebum. Using an exfoliator prior to using other skincare products allows all of the good-for-you ingredients to further penetrate the skin and perform their best. Cranberry seed oil is extremely absorbent.

Exfoliating is even more crucial during months with cold temperatures and harsh winds to do away with dry skin. As nice and necessary it is to feel warm and comfortable in this cold weather, be aware that heaters dry the air around you. Dryness not only means your skin will look dull, but it can also cause inflammatory responses and worsen inflammatory skin issues such as rosacea, eczema, ichthyosis, and psoriasis. Be extra cautious with the products you use, as they have to be gentle yet very effective and should definitely not impair your natural skin barrier function.

What makes our Exfoliating Face Mask the best exfoliating mask? It offers dry skin exfoliation and removal of dead skin cells without the use of microbeads like most masks on the market. All of our masks have aloe-based formulas using innovative Natural Oil Dispersion Technology, which utilizes physical properties, not chemicals to create powerful, yet gentle skincare. Scrubbing your skin with rough exfoliators can do serious harm to your skin!

Use our Exfoliating Face Mask twice a week, followed by our Hydrating Face Mask to leave your skin plump and radiant.

Happy Holidays! We hope you have an amazing, fun-filled Thanksgiving weekend with loved ones!

Very best,

nugg Beauty Team

Halloween Mask Tips & Tricks For Your Skin

By nügg Beauty
on October 18, 2017

Halloween is right around the corner, and we know you must have some really unique costumes and makeup planned for this year. Halloween is that time of year where you can go all-out and experiment with all sorts of different looks whether they are fun & vibrant or bloody & scary, but you should be aware of the fact that heavy costume makeup can mess with your skin and cause break-outs.

We absolutely love Halloween and we would never miss out just to protect our skin. That is why, we pulled together a few tips for how you can avoid a terrifying skin experience this Halloween. Incorporating face masks into your routine is always a good idea, but specific masks should be used in this case. Here is what you need to keep an eye out for during Halloween party season.

Create the perfect canvas

Exfoliate your face for a smooth and even base before applying makeup with our Exfoliating Face Mask. This will help to ensure that your skin is free of flakes and bumps. A lot of Halloween makeup is not always of the best quality, especially when you’re just picking it up at your local party store. Therefore it’s important to have as smooth of a base as possible so that your makeup looks nice and even.

Prevent breakouts

Clogged pores and pesky breakouts are never ideal, especially as we are headed into the holiday party season. Unfortunately after wearing thick, goopy Halloween makeup, your skin can feel suffocated and cause your skin to become congested. So make sure to thoroughly clean your skin from all make-up and then apply our nügg Black Charcoal Detox Face Mask to cleanse your pores and intensely purge your skin of impurities without drying out your skin. This is the best face mask to help remove blackheads as well as give you an effective face detox.

Calm any irritation

Using prosthetics or glitter to enhance your Halloween costume? These embellishments, although fun to wear, can cause irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin. To fight back, make sure to apply the nügg Hydrating Face Mask in the evening after removing your make-up to moisturize and replenish your skin that can become dry from heavy make-up. This is the best face mask for dry skin, making it a must-have especially in the cold months.

The Camellia Seed extracts and Aloe Juice base in this moisturizing powerhouse will help to bring some relief back to your skin. You can even apply this moisturizing mask before bed, and leave a thin layer on overnight for a deeply nourishing sleep-mask experience.

Maintain a glow

Along with the fun and elaborate costumes, comes late nights with lots of partying and candy eating. With the increased intake of sugary treats on Halloween and the lack of sleep, your skin can suffer. To balance out your tired face, drink a lot of water and use the nügg Revitalizing Face Mask in the morning after Halloween to give your skin a boost. With cooling Peppermint, this mask will instantly give your skin a refreshed look & feel that is much needed after whatever your Halloween festivities may entail. 

Here at nügg The Face Mask Authority, we have the best face masks to care for your skin, and we have just what you need to keep your skin in check during the Halloween season. So be prepared and don’t forget to include nügg face masks in your skin care regime, and have all of the fun this year. Happy Halloween!

Best Face Masks for Fall Skincare

By nügg Beauty
on September 29, 2017

Best Face Masks for Fall Skincare

Although the weather has been a bit up and down recently, fall is 100% on it’s way and as temperature’s drop, your skin is going to see some changes. It’s time to add a selection of the best skin care products into your face care kit to help your skin transition into fall. Face masks should be staples in your weekly skin care regime and you should mask at least twice a week as the seasons change. 

Skin care in fall should be all about dry skin exfoliation, moisturizing and gentle cleansing. The sudden decrease in humidity makes the air dry and can quickly pull the moisture out of your skin. That gets even worse as indoor heat goes on which causes moisture levels to drop even further. As a result, your skin and lips become dry (even if you don’t immediately notice it) and with that the dewiness and glow of summer quickly disappear. In addition, dry and dead skin cells often pile up during summer which puts you at risk for breakouts and a tired, dull look. 

Using a face mask at least twice a week can help to quickly turn your tired face into a clear and smooth complexion. What your skin needs are the best face masks to give your skin exactly what it needs this season. To help you pick the right masks, here are our must-have masking tips for fall:

1. Boost hydration levels – What you don’t want in fall (or any season) is dry skin because it makes your skin dull, your make-up caky, and it accelerates your skin’s aging process. Our Deep Hydration Face Mask is the best face mask for dry skin! You will immediately notice an increase of hydration that helps bring your skin to life and the mask will help erase any dry spots or flakes you might have.
One of our favorite tips with this mask is to use it overnight as a deeply hydrating sleep mask. All you have to do is apply mask as you normally would, let it sit for 10 minutes before wiping off the excess product. Leave a thin layer on overnight and let the moisturizing mask do it’s work while you sleep. Similar to this, you can also do this in the morning. Leave the thin layer on before makeup application for a dewy, smooth look all day long.

2. Exfoliate twice a week – You NEED to exfoliate your face on a regular basis for a radiant and hydrated complexion and to avoid clogged pores which can result in unwanted blackheads and whiteheads. Our Exfoliating Face Mask should be a staple in your fall skincare routine as it will exfoliate dry skin bits and flakes away that have built up over the summer and reveal a radiant complexion while helping prevent dirt & bacteria from being trapped in your pores. It will also help your other skin care products penetrate better into the skin which is important to keep your skin well nourished and supple in colder weather.

3. Turn towards more gentle cleansers – With colder weather comes dryness, and with dryness can come skin sensitivity, which means you need to be careful when choosing the right cleansing face mask for clear skin. Do NOT pick a mask that claims to shrink your pores but also strips your skin of moisture to make it feel tight and deprived. Find balance by using a gentle cleanser and gentle face masks. Our Deep Cleansing Face Mask is the best face mask for clear skin when your skin is dry and sensitive. It will give you a deep cleanse while at the same time giving your skin a dose of healthy moisture and soothing benefits. Remember to never sacrifice hydration for clear skin!

4. Don’t forget your feet and hands – After months of wearing strappy sandals, walking around barefoot and just generally being on your feet more, you may notice that you need a serious foot treatment. Give yourself a pedicure at home with our Revitalizing Face Mask. Start off by using a callus remover to get rid of the hard bits and then apply our Revitalizing Face Mask evenly to both feet in a thick layer. Cover them with a plastic bag and let the mask sit for 15 to 30 minutes before washing off. The Peppermint and Menthol in our Revitalizing Mask will refresh your feet, while the Flaxseed Oil and Aloe Juice base will hydrate and soften the dry spots. Alternatively, you can put socks over the mask and leave it on while you sleep for a nourishing treatment overnight. Apply any excess product to your hands for a refreshing & hydrating treatment there as well. 

Make sure to get these face masks into your face care kit and you’ll have a healthy and radiant complexion all season long!
