(skin that is clear, radiant, translucent, poreless and smooth, almost like a pane of glass)
Anyone can achieve great skin, no matter what their skin type. It’s just a matter of having regular customized Facial treatments by me, or for those of you who don’t live nearby, having my regular personal consultations, following a great home care ritual, eating right and exercising regularly.
The Glass Skin home care routine needs to be done regularly and includes a lot of steps – as many as 10. For clients already on a full homecare program that I have designed specifically for their skin, this list may seem like what they are already doing but with a few additions and the steps in a new order.
1.) Double Cleansing: start with an oil based cleanser to soften sebum and make-up, sunscreen and other products on the skin. Then follow with a second cleanser (I like a gel or foam) to complete the cleansing process. Rinse well with a soft clean cloth and splash with lukewarm water.
2.) Exfoliate: To remove dead skin cells and blackheads. This can be a third cleanser, gel peel, or gentle exfoliating cream.
3.) Toning: This helps to restore the PH of the skin and helps the next steps absorb. I choose the exact toner product for your particular needs.
4.) Essence: Incorporating an essence(a thin water based product to add moisture to the skin)provides a natural glow as well as heightening the benefits of any skin care routine.
5.) Brighten: this is where my expertise really comes in and I recommend the proper serum or serums (you can layer up to three) to address the problems you are having with your skin. Whether it be acne scars, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, oily or dry skin, we address them here.
6.) Hydration: lightweight hyaluronic acid based product to help retain water and keep the skin healthy from within.
7.) Moisturize: this step supports the top layer of the skin and holds the other steps in. It’s a critical step because even though there are layers underneath it, it doesn’t need to feel heavy. Who among us hasn’t had difficulty finding the right moisturizer?
8.) Eye & Lip Hydration: The eye area is so unique and I hear stories from clients about how hard it is to find the right eye products to help their specific eye area without irritating, feeling heavy, sticky, or tacky. This is why I have applied my 35+ years of experience in choosing the variety of products I carry to help the diverse clientele who come to me for advice.
9.) Sunscreen: Why cover up all the beautiful steps above with the wrong Sun Screen? I will help you to find the perfect sunscreen to compliment your routine and give you the flawless finish you want.
10.) Masks: Masking should be part of every homecare ritual. One of my favorites is the new 10% Glyconight Masque from Yon-ka Paris to experience overnight skin renewal and radiance while you sleep.
