We have put together a collection of great skin and makeup tips from our expert estheticians/skin experts on how to get a jump on spring with recommendations on treatments and products!
Gigi “My favorite product to use at this time of year is a good exfoliant. You cannot get the best performance from your products; moisturizers, masks, etc. to be able to penetrate efficiently into the skin without exfoliating at least 1 time a week with either a natural scrub or enzyme. I love the Yonka Guarana Scrub and the Vitamin C enzyme mask. I use one or the other when choosing for my guests skin treatment and always recommend that they use at home in between their professional skin treatments.”
Chloe I recommend adding a mask to any skin care regimen. I find most of my guests don’t think or remember to mask their skin in between skin treatments, but using a mask at least 1-2 times a week infuses a more concentrated blend of essential ingredients to maintain the health of your skin. At this time of year, battling winter dryness, it is especially important to mask. Your mask is best used after exfoliation to really give your skin a home spa treatment. I love the Yonka Mask N1-Hydration mask, the Eminence Firm Skin Mask for tightening and the Eminence Clear Skin mask for acne prone skin.
Kaitlin “I recommend this time of the year to get a dermaplane treatment. It is the one service that gives instant glow and at the same time smooths skin texture like baby skin! I always recommend the IMAGE Radiance Sheet Mask to use after to keep the glow of the skin between dermaplane treatments. Also, at this time of year, when skin is so dehydrated, I like to recommend the IMAGE Vitamin C oil to use every night with the Radiance Mask 1-2 times a week to keep the skin hydrated and radiant!”
Katerina “For my guests with more dense skin either due to oiliness or sun damage, I like to recommend Microdermabrasion. Different than Dermaplanning, it is for skin types that need a deeper, more intense exfoliation. Using our diamond tip machine, the skin is gently polished while the vacuum lifts away the dead skin leaving the skin smooth, and refined! I love to recommend the Yonka Excellence Code products to maintain the treatment at home between treatments as it infuses a deep hydration and an anti-oxidant blend that leaves the skin looking visibly younger!”
Daphne “At this time of year, if my guests have been following my home care advice on skin, I like to introduce them to some new makeup looks to brighten their skin even more and give them a psychological beauty lift! Depending on what colors look best for the skin tone, as well as what is new for spring, I like to add some shimmer to brighten the eyes using the NEW Smashbox photo edit eyeshadow trios. My guests love the tips I can share with them on how to use the products to add that little extra glitz to their makeup look! I also like to recommend all my guests use the Smashbox Primer Oil under their foundation to give the skin a beautiful healthy glow while keeping makeup looking fresh all day!”
Nico “This time of year, I like to recommend monthly or even biweekly sculpting lift facials for those guests who haven’t taken very good care of their skin in winter. During the winter, skin becomes more dehydrated and abused due to the weather and constant heat in our homes, offices and cars. This actually causes more inflammation in the skin. Whenever there is more inflammation, there is more Lymphatic fluid that sits in the skin tissue causing more drag and sag. Using our exclusive Relax Spa massage of eliminating the sitting fluid in the skin combined with our compression technique that literally molds and lifts the skin, my guests look like they have had a face lift! I like to recommend they take home Yonka’s Phyto 52 Contouring Face Cream and Phyto Contouring Eye Cream and teach them the compression techniques that will keep the fluid from rebuilding in their skin.”
