Celebrity esthetician Shani Darden, whose clients include Jessica Alba and Chrissy Teigen, shares her secrets to help you get healthy, fresh, and glowing skin.
Get a facial once a month: Shani says if you can’t afford to get one, you can do it at home. Start with cleaning your skin with a gentle cleanser to remove any makeup or dirt. After cleansing, use a chemical exfoliator like a skeet mask, hyaluronic acid or an LED light therapy mask. She says to then finish with a moisturizer.
Do not over exfoliate: She says to only exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week, depending on your skin type.
Retinol in the PM, SPF in the AM: She says to use sunscreen every day regardless of the weather and apply retinol at night.
She adds, “You don’t have to be a celebrity to have good skin! Great skin is always in!”
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says retinol promotes collagen and helps to stimulate cell turn over. She says to only use at night as it sensitizes the skin to sunlight. She says up to 2 percent retinol is available over the counter and suggests starting with a low percentage – and only use on 2 nonconsecutive nights per week -- as they can be drying and irritating to the skin. She also notes that anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding should not use retinol.
