Happy Tuesday Gorgeous!
It’s finally feeling like winter is just around the bend. With winter comes bundling up, staying in more and getting cozy, and, unfortunately, harsh conditions that wreak havoc on your skin. The cold weather makes it more difficult for skin to retain moisture and look bright and glowing. I’m all about changing your skincare routine to account for the seasons, which is why I’m happy to announce that I am now selling a range of products from the beauty brand Meder at my NYC salon (soon to be sold on my website too – in the meantime just email firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order). Just like the amazing Alchimie Forever product line, this brand hails from Switzerland, land of the most cutting-edge skincare technology breakthroughs. After hearing rave reviews about this brand from my fabulous client Zac Posen, I knew that I had to check it out. Founded by a dermatologist, these products yield powerful results while still utilizing clean, non-toxic ingredients, making them a perfect compliment to my namesake line. Today, I’m going to share with you three of the products that I’m now carrying and why I love them:
I absolutely love this sheet mask! A favorite among many top beauty editors, the Hydra-Fill Deep Hydration Mask, which is paraben-free and consists of very clean ingredients, provides visible results after just one use. After the arctic blast we had at the end of last week in NYC when temperature dropped below freezing, I knew I needed something to restore hydration to my skin. This mask does exactly that and so much more. It returns moisture to the deepest layers of the skin, while restoring the skin’s barrier function, to ensure that it retains moisture more efficiently, all thanks to the star ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, which is the skin’s own natural moisturizing agent. The addition of antioxidants helps to fight free radicals and repair damage to leave your skin looking smooth and plump. I also love that unlike other sheet masks that are on the market, this one is shaped to cover the whole face and the neck (which is key!) and it has loops to go over your ears while wearing it so that you’re able to move around without it falling off. After just one use, my skin is still reaping the incredible benefits of this mask and continues to look plump and hydrated.
As many of you know, I love products that can be used in more than one way, and this product does just that. The Enzy-Peel Mask can be used as an exfoliating mask, as well as a scrub, revealing the softest skin you’ve ever felt. Aging and exposure to damaging environmental factors increase the number of dead skin cells present on the surface of your skin and cause your outermost layer of the skin to become rough and uneven. Regular exfoliation evens out the skin, slows down the aging process, and aids inflammation, all while improving the permeability of the skin, allowing active ingredients to penetrate to the deepest level of the skin. After using this product, I’m obsessed with how soft my skin is. The smoothing effect of the mask is comparable to a chemical peel minus the irritation, making it the perfect treatment for professional results at home.
I love that this eye cream doesn’t quite have the consistency of a cream or a gel, but rather is a beautiful marriage of the two textures. This allows it to feel light and refreshing upon application but still moisturizes the delicate eye area. The active ingredients in the Blepharo-Night Eye Cream provide powerful antioxidant effects, restore membranes and stimulate synthesis of the skin’s peptides. This cream also contains escin, an extract from the seed of the horse chestnut tree, which helps increase circulation. After a few uses, you’ll see its incredible drainage and anti-puffiness effects! If you struggle with puffy eyes, there’s nothing better than doing a little Gua Sha around the eye area using my Rose Quartz Gua Sha Tool to drain stagnant fluid that causes puffiness and following with an application of the Blepharo-Night Eye Cream. Don’t forget to check out my guide to the proper way to apply eye cream, which can be found here.
Here’s the way I like to utilize these wonderful products for a night routine that allows me to wake up looking well-rested and glowing: First, cleanse with my Vitamin C Cleanser to remove dirt from your pores. Next, exfoliate using the Enzy-Peel Mask as a scrub/cleansing mask, to remove dead skin cells. Now that your skin is more permeable and is better able to absorb active ingredients thanks to the Enzy-Peel Masksheet mask, it’s the perfect time to apply the Hydra-Fill Deep Hydration Mask. After wearing for twenty minutes, remove the mask and massage the remaining gel leftover from the mask into your skin. Follow with two drops of my Black Currant Serum applied to your entire face and décolleté to lock in moisture. Finish by gently applying the Blepharo-Night Eye Cream to the ocular area.
