Skincare Practices You Have To Try This Summer

By nügg Beauty

Charcoal Detox Mask

Summer means a lot of things, most of them fun, adventurous and relaxing, but it can also mean dealing with greasy, messy skin, frequent breakouts, annoying whiteheads and blackheads throughout the season. Now you cannot control the weather or the effect it has on your skin, but what you can do is help your skin cope with the weather and provide it with the treatment it needs to stay healthy. Here are three skincare practices that can make your summer a lot more pleasant and enjoyable.

  • Double Cleansing – You heard that right – double cleansing. Follow up your regular cleanser with the nügg Deep Cleansing Face Mask. This 3 time winner of the Allure Best of Beauty award cleanses skin thoroughly and absorbs shine so that your skin is fresh, free of excess sebum and your pores are unclogged. Now if you are wondering whether the double cleansing will dry out your skin, don’t worry; the nügg Deep Cleansing Face Mask is gentle and replenishes moisture levels as it cleanses, so that you have a dewy and radiant complexion. Clean, shine free, yet hydrated skin all in one go.
  • Multi-masking – Now if you have finicky skin that is dry around the cheeks and mouth, yet oily on the forehead and nose, attending to all issues can be a problem, or you may think. The answer is to multi- mask. Just apply the nügg Charcoal Detox Mask to the super oily areas and viola, oil free, clean and fresh looking skin. You can use our Hydrating mask, Soothing mask or any mask of your choice depending on what your skin needs on the remaining area. Give your skin what it needs and you will always have happy and healthy skin.
  • Use a Peel- off Mask – During summer your skin sure can use a little bit of cooling and refreshing. Cleanse, soothe, tone, de-puff, cool and rejuvenate your skin with the nügg Mermaid Marine Rubber Peel Off Face Mask. Unlike other peel off masks, this one is alcohol free and isn’t painful or difficult to remove, which means it doesn’t dry out, tear or damage your skin. The Mermaid Peel Off Mask’s unique marine ingredients ensures that it forms a thick rubber like layer that makes it easy to take off and also helps to drive the active ingredients in the mask further into the skin, thereby increasing effectiveness. Tea Tree Oil cools and refreshes skin, making this mask perfect for use in the summer.

100% Natural And Vegan Lip Treatment

Lip Mask

After all of the love we received for our face masks and then our All Natural Hydrating Lip Mask, we just had to find out what more we could do in the area of lip care. That’s how our latest product, nügg All Natural Exfoliating Lip Scrub and Smoother came to be, and you know what, our latest baby is a hit as well.

What sets our Lip Treatment range apart is the fact that it is 100% natural, vegan, preservative free and cruelty-free. We are working towards formulating 100% skin and environment friendly products, products that love your skin and work with it, thereby producing results without disturbing the natural world.

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding beeswax and how it is produced, which is why most vegans stay away from honey and beeswax. Many beauty bloggers and editors argue against the industry saying that beeswax tends to dry lips further as it forms an impermeable layer on the lips making it difficult for your lips to breathe. Plus the intense heat that the ingredients have to be subjected to produce beeswax most likely leaves no live cells behind, thereby reducing its effectiveness.

Lip Scrub

Effective or not, vegans and bee lovers will not think twice about not using lip scrubs that use beeswax. The thing with the nügg All Natural Exfoliating Lip Scrub and Smoother is that it does not contain beeswax, instead we use cocoa butter. This edible fat, extracted from cocoa beans (yes, the same ones that give you chocolate) is intensely moisturizing, packed with antioxidants, healthy natural elements and even has healing properties. Plus our lip scrub smells heavenly.

So if you have found that beeswax lip products don’t work for you or if you are looking for a vegan lip scrub or lip balm, the nügg All Natural Hydrating Lip Mask and Exfoliating Lip Scrub is for you. Our lip mask is a gentle formulation of Shea butter, Coconut Oil, Irish Moss Extract and Liquorice Root and is a proud winner of the Cosmopolitan Best of Beauty Award. Our lip scrub contains Jojoba Wax, Sugar Granules, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil and Sunflower Seed Wax – all natural and vegan.

Our Lip Treatment range is gentle, intensely nourishing, and effective. We guarantee that you will love it.

Dry Skin Or Dehydrated Skin?

By nügg Beauty
on July 20, 2017

Hydrating Face Mask

Did you know that dry skin and dehydrated skin are two different conditions? Surprised? Dry skin and dehydrated skin are often considered synonymous, when in actuality, they are a little different.

Dry skin is essentially a result of your skin producing insufficient sebum or oil. The lack of sebum means that your skin cannot seal in moisture, thereby leaving you with rough and flaky skin and a damaged skin barrier. People with dry skin have pronounced wrinkles, inflammation and sensitive skin. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, occurs when your skin is unable to hold in water though it produces sufficient sebum. This condition is often genetic and is common in people with oily or acne prone skin as they tend to use products that are harsh on the skin. Dehydrated skin feels tight, flaky and has prominent fine lines.

So why is it important to understand this difference? Because it determines how you take care of your skin. Dry skin needs moisturizers that are emollient-rich to prevent moisture loss, while dehydrated skin, produces adequate oil, but needs regular conditioning to keep it from drying out.

When treating dry skin, it is always best to avoid harsh cleansers and use mild cleansing lotions. Dry skin needs to be exfoliated regularly with gentle exfoliants like nügg Exfoliating Face Mask. Exfoliation is important as it helps get rid of the dead and dry cells and promotes cell regeneration, making way for new and fresh skin. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, need moisturizers that contain humectants that will attract and seal in moisture, thereby keeping skin hydrated and nourished. It is also strongly recommended that you use gentle exfoliants that don’t strip skin of moisture or damage it.

Face Mask

Now if you are not sure whether you have dry skin or dehydrated skin and are not sure how you should go about taking care of your skin, we have something that can help you – a monthly Subscription Box For Dry/Dehydrated Skin. This box consists of 8 face masks – 4 pods each of our award winning nügg Hydrating Face Mask and nügg Exfoliating Face Mask. These masks have been specially selected to treat dry skin and erase dry spots, leaving you with soft and dewy skin.

The nügg Exfoliating Face Mask uses 93% natural or naturally derived ingredients and is gentle, yet effective on your skin. It exfoliates the skin without drying it out, in fact, it actually replenishes skin moisture levels, making it perfect for use on both dry skin and dehydrated skin. The nügg Hydrating Face Mask luxuriously hydrates skin so that it is nourished and sated. It is also formulated to seal moisture in your skin, again making it ideal for hydrating both skin conditions. All of your dry and dehydrated skin problems taken care off in one go.

And what’s even better is that if you subscribe, you will find a box of masks at your doorstep like clockwork every month. Now you will never forget to mask, plus it’s cheaper. Save money & time and get gorgeous, dewy skin.

Dry skin or dehydrated skin, it is a difficult condition to live with but it doesn’t have to stay that way. You can have the skin of your dreams all through the year. Just try our Subscription Box For Dry/Dehydrated Skin and let us know what you think.

Exfoliate For Healthy Skin This Summer

By nügg Beauty

Natural Face Mask

You turn your face to the sun; enjoy the sunlight that gently caresses your skin. You feel the warmth on your eyelids and you know, you just know it’s going to be a good day. So you stay the way you are, bask in the sunlight for just a moment longer and finally open your eyes and go on your way, eager to start your day. With a spring in your step, you march on ahead ready to take on the world. Just then you realize your skin feels kinda heavy and oily!! Could it be? No, it couldn’t be!! Today was supposed to be a good day! Doesn’t every self help and motivational book say you should enjoy the feeling of the sun your face? You decided to turn things around and look- you have shiny, oily skin!

Yes, summer can do that to you. The strong sunlight, exposure to UV radiation, sweat, ever increasing pollution – all clog your pores, leading your skin to produce excess sebum. Add to this the dead and dry skin cells that your skin produces regularly and you have a small problem on your hands (on your face actually). Your skin is now a breeding ground for bacteria and very soon, you will have zits, whiteheads and blackheads fighting for space on your face. Ouch, sounds quite aggravating.

Facial Mask

Well, fortunately it doesn’t have to turn into a huge issue. With a little care, effort and a small pod of the nügg Exfoliating Face Mask, you can keep all your oily skin and breakout problems at bay. Slough off the dead and dry skin cells, flush out your pores and say hello to gorgeous skin. Made with 93% natural or naturally derived ingredients including Cranberry Seed Oil, Natural L-Lactic Acid, Jojoba Beads and Aloe Juice, this natural face mask gently exfoliates and brightens skin so that you have a smooth, youthful and healthy complexion. The nügg Exfoliating Mask is also a hydrating face mask, which means it is non-drying and helps replenish moisture levels when used unlike other exfoliating products that suck all the moisture out of your skin.

Exfoliate once or twice a week with the nügg Exfoliating Natural Face Mask so that you have clean and clear skin, which means no more breakouts, no more clogged pores; just fresh, healthy and beautiful skin.

Now a word of advice – don’t let your fear of skin problems keep you from enjoying the sun. The sunlight is one of the few true pleasures of life, it is good for your soul. We live in a time where people pay more attention to the outside than the inside, when in fact it is really your inside – your soul, your mind that needs the most nourishment because everything else flows from there. So slow down and take the time to enjoy all the little things in life. Today is a good day – just don’t forget the SPF.

nügg Beauty Top 5 Summer Masking Tips

By nügg Beauty
on July 17, 2017

Face Mask

Tip #1: Hot weather causes the skin to produce more sebum than usual, causing an oily, shiny look especially on your forehead. The nügg Beauty Mermaid & the nügg Charcoal Face Masks are must-have summer masks because they:

  1. Cleanse pores to help prevent breakouts
  2. Contain Tea Tree Oil to cool down the skin which helps reduce sebum flow for a shine-free look.

 

Facial Masks

Tip #2: Dry skin types should never be without hydration, also during the humid summer months and should use nügg’s hydration mask at least twice a week. But hydration is key during the summer months also for all other skin types because sun, heat, wind and salt water draw essential moisture from the skin. Regular use of the nügg Beauty Hydrating Face Mask will ensure that the skin is well moisturized and nourished and that skin improves its ability to retain moisture. Ongoing intense hydration is one of the top anti-aging tips and essential to retain a youthful look, no matter what season it is.

 

Natural Face Mask

Tip #3: After a long day in the sun, you have to give your skin what it needs to recover. With increased sun and heat exposure, the skin can become irritated, sensitive and unbalanced, not to mention sunburn and its very negative short and long-term effects on the skin. Exposure to sun, heat and wind also dehydrates the skin even if you don’t always notice it. After a day in the sun, make sure to treat your skin with the nügg Soothing face mask to help restore and nourish the skin while reducing the appearance of redness and providing a boost of hydration. For an extra cooling effect, place the mask in the fridge before use which will make it extra refreshing

 

Best Face Mask

Tip #4: Exfoliating your skin regularly throughout summer is key to remove dead skin cell as well as excess oil that can become clogged in your pores, causing bacteria and breakouts. Where many physical scrubs can be harsh and feel as though they are stripping the skin, the nügg Beauty Exfoliating mask contains natural L-Lactic Acid and Jojoba Beads to gently exfoliate while at the same time nourishing your skin so that it never feels raw or stripped.

 

Face Masks

Tip #5: Summer time is travel time! Masking before and after a flight is a must-have skin care step because the dry air on planes takes a toll on your skin, resulting in a dry, dull and tired complexion. For pre-flight masking, we recommend applying our hydrating mask and only removing the excess with a damp washcloth to leave a layer of hydration protection on your skin. For post-flight masking, the use of the nügg Exfoliating face mask followed by the nügg Hydrating, Soothing or Revitalizing face masks is a must.

 

All of nügg Beauty’s pod face masks are super TSA-friendly which means they are perfect to store in a carry-on for a spa treatment while traveling. Store the masks in the mini-fridge at your hotel. The cooling sensation will feel super refreshing after a day in the sun.

Prepping For Minimal Summer Makeup

Natural Face Mask

During the summer it can sometimes be so hot and humid that we skip foundation, primer or eye shadow. The thought of putting layers upon layers of makeup on your skin can feel almost suffocating for your skin. Summer calls for light BB cream or better yet, no makeup. Honestly, we love going minimal; it is refreshing and feels just right.

However, this also means that you need a fresh and clean face that allows for minimal coverage. Easier said than done you may say, but that’s not quite true; all you need is the right skincare products, something that will give you a naturally glowing, healthy and clean complexion, something like the nügg Deep Cleansing face mask.

The nügg Deep Cleansing face mask is a natural face mask that promises clean, shine- free and healthy skin. This mask is a 2-in-1 action mask that deep cleanses and soothes skin while drawing out impurities, regulating shine and replenishing moisture levels. This 3 time winner of the Allure Best of Beauty award, nügg Deep Cleansing facial mask promises clean, happy and healthy skin, so that you have the perfect base for minimal summer makeup.

Hydrating Face Mask

Made with 98% natural or naturally-derived ingredients including Jojoba Oil, Cucumber Extract and Aloe Juice, the Deep Cleansing mask is gentle, skin friendly and suits all skin types. Our formulation includes no mineral oils, parabens, chemical emulsifiers, synthetic colours or fragrances. Unlike numerous other deep cleansing products, this natural face mask doesn’t dry out your skin or leave it feeling tight and dry after use, instead it is a hydrating face mask. Your skin will feel nourished and clean- just want you need this time of the year.
