Today - October 15 - is National Esthetician Day. If ever you’ve encountered skincare concerns (congratulations if you’re a superhuman who hasn’t), you know the value of a good skincare professional. These experts can skillfully help us through overcoming acne or rosacea, decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrating dehydrated, often flaky skin, balancing oily skin or work miracles on unpredictable combination skin. Estheticians are a perfect combination of therapist and scientist, trained on how to make us look and feel our best and most beautiful selves, even when we’re not feeling it.
In celebration of this momentous holiday, we asked two of our estheticians at Indulge Salon + Skin to share their top product picks.
Kari selected one of Dermalogica’s newest products, BioLumin-C Serum.
Why: Drawing from Vitamin C’s natural properties, this highly-concentrated serum will brighten and firm your skin. Lactic acid hydrates and promotes cellular turnover, which helps shed the surface layers of dead and dry skin cells. Sophia Japonica Flower Extract and Chia Seed Oil will lastly help calm the skin, leaving it with nourishing hydration and protect it from free radicals.
To use: Cleanse, apply toner then, using a full eyedropper, massage serum into face and neck. Can be used both in the morning and at night.
Leroy selected Eye Authority from HydroPeptide.
Why: If crushed pearls didn’t convince you, read on. This eye cream is the ultimate multi-tasker. It brightens dark circles, reduces puffiness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (even crow’s feet!). This deeply-hydrating product contains black pearl peptides and hyaluronic acid that will keep the delicate skin around your eyes supple and moisturized. His favorite part? Included in Eye Authority’s formula is a crushed pearl powder that brings immediate radiance to dark circles.
To use: Apply a half pea-sized amount of product to the skin contour around your eyes both in the morning and at night. Use regularly for at least two weeks for optimal results.
