Much like her bohemian home decor brand Jungalow, Justina Blakeney's beauty rituals are all about relaxation and (stylish) comfort. The Los Angeles-based designer creates self-care spaces throughout her home and believes in the power of plants for nourishing her soul, skin, and signature halo of curls. "I look for beauty products that have ingredients I can understand."

Blakeney takes her beauty philosophy of being close to nature one step further each morning: "Most integral to my beauty routine is my outdoor shower," she says. That's the beauty of living in Los Angeles, where it's 70 degrees — and sunny — most of the year. Inside, her rituals continue in an idyllic setting. "I bought a vanity to get ready for shoots, but it’s leveled up how much I care for my skin. Having a dedicated spot is a reminder to take care of yourself," says Blakeney. "Like with any intention that you have in your life, making space for that intention in your home, makes space for it in your life." 

And spending time in each of these places practicing self-care also reinforces the significance of self-love. "Take care of yourself. This is the only thing you're ever going to have. This is your body. This is your hair," Blakeney tells Allure

Here, what's in her beauty arsenal.

"My outdoor shower is a beautiful way to invite the day into my life, and it brings me sunshine. Once a month, I use Shaz & Kiks Power Hair Set [a prewash treatment] to help my humongous, curly hair hold moisture longer. And every day, I put on Pattern Leave-In Conditioner."

"Before [the pandemic] I would go to a Korean spa and get a scrub. In the absence of that [I use] Osea Salts of the Earth Body Scrub. I like to make my bath humid, so I'll close the doors and add Saje Liquid Sunshine to my diffuser to [turn my bathroom into] a scented steam room."

a pineapple on a sandy beach Nearly 30% of office workers will take less time off this summer Summer comes soon but unlike past summers, this season will certainly be different for workers due to COVID-19. Veuer’s Mercer Morrison has the story. Veuer Logo Veuer a close up of a woman brushing her teeth How to pop a pimple yourself, according to Dr. Pimple Popper's tips Insider producer Celia Skvaril video chatted with Dr. Sanda Lee, aka Dr. Pimple Popper, to get her professional advice on how to pop a pimple at home. While Lee doesn't recommend that people pop their own pimples, pimple popping is a habit that many struggle to quit. With much of the world staying at home, people aren't seeing their dermatologists and estheticians regularly and may be fighting a higher-than-usual urge to pick at their skin. Lee offered her tips on how to best minimize the risk of scarring and further infection when popping your own pimples, like attempting to pop only superficial whiteheads and properly sterilizing the pimple and tools both before and after popping. Following Lee's tips, Celia attempted to pop her own whitehead at home.
