Our Skin Care Faves
Every day we work with many different skin types, skin needs and skin care products. When we go home and design our own skin care regimen, we too choose the best products to repair our skin and give it the same healthy glow we strive for with our clients. Now we want to share our favorite products with you.
Jillian – Lead aesthetician and nursing mother
Skin care routine: Remove makeup and cleanse face with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex, apply Epionce® Intense Defense Serum to face and neck, apply Epionce® Renewal Eye Cream, finish with Epionce® Intensive Nourishing Moisturizing Cream.
As a first time mother, there are two things Jillian needs in a skin care product: She wants a product with ingredients safe for mom and baby plus something quick and easy for her busy lifestyle. “My favorite product is hands-down Epionce®’s Intense Defense Serum for anti-aging and repair,” says Jillian. “It is safe for use during pregnancy and nursing, and I love the light, gel consistency of the product that soaks right into my skin.”
Epionce®’s Intense Defense Serum is packed full of antioxidant vitamins and uses powerful botanical ingredients to prevent visible signs of aging while restoring barrier health. This product is like a multivitamin for your skin; it contains all five antioxidant vitamins needs for optimal skin health—vitamins A, B, C, D, and E.
Using this product twice a day helps improve the appearance of your skin. It reduces redness, improves firmness and elasticity, and improves fine lines and wrinkles. “My skin looked and felt great throughout my entire pregnancy,” says Jillian. “I stuck to the basics of a good cleanser, moisturizer, and eye cream. Then, the Intense Defense Serum added the perfect anti-aging boost to my routine.”
Kyrra – Front desk coordinator with sensitive skin
Skin care routine: Cleanse and remove makeup with Epionce® Gentle Foaming Cleanser then moisturize skin with Epionce® Renewal Facial Cream, and moisturize around the eyes with Elizabeth Dehn’s One Love Organics Active Moisture Vitamin E Eye Balm.
To say Kyrra monitors what she puts on her skin is an understatement. Her sensitive skin can dry out or turn red if exposed to the wrong products or outdoor elements. So she looks for products with pure ingredients that are gentle and effective. “My favorite product is The Organic Pharmacy® Enzyme Peel Mask,” says Kyrra. “It is gentle enough for my sensitive skin, has organic ingredients, and leaves me glowing.”
The Organic Pharmacy® Enzyme Peel Mask with Vitamin C and Papaya used to only be available as a facial treatment in a spa. Now, it’s a product you can buy and use once a week at home for skin rejuvenation. “I use it on Sundays for 15 minutes while I’m lounging,” says Kyrra. “I put a layer of the product on my clean skin and relax while it works.”
The peel gently removes dead skin cells, reduces blackheads, diminishes age spots, and removes fine lines. The ingredient list sounds like a hall of fame for great skincare. It includes Vitamin C and Papaya, as well as acai berries, aloe, Vitamin E, shea butter, jojoba, lactic acid, goji berries, and beta-carotene. “I love what my skin feels like when I’m finished,” says Kyrra.
Diana – Aesthetician with oily skin
Diana describes her skin type as oily and prone to acne and redness. To smooth out her complexion and keep breakouts to a minimum, she likes to use two key products. “My favorite product sequence is Hydra-Cool Serum from iS Clinical followed by Renewal Facial Lotion from Epionce®,” says Diana.
After she cleanses her face, Diana first applies Hydra-Cool Serum. IS Clinical’s Hydra-Cool Serum provides a hydrating, soothing, and anti-aging treatment. It soothes irritated skin and offers antioxidant protection. “The Hydra-Cool is like a big drink of water for my skin without adding oil-rich moisture. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our skin, and it has a water-binding agent that helps maintain moisture on the surface of my skin.”
Diana applies Epionce®’s Renewal Facial Lotion next. The lotion works for normal to combination skin and contains natural ingredients like meadowfoam, date and apple fruit extract, rose hip, safflower, and avocado. The active ingredients help penetrate the skin and strengthen the skin barrier. “The Renewal Facial Lotion is great, because it isn’t heavy and it hydrates my skin,” says Diana. “Although I have oily skin, my skin still can be dehydrated, which is a common misconception for people with oily skin. This product leaves my skin feeling and looking great.”
