Being a model you have to take care of yourself more than every other women. Clients judging your face and body as much as your portfolio. With an experience you start understanding your body needs. Almost every month I add something new in my daily skin care routine. I’m on a stage of experiments, but consciously chosen. Once in two month I do a facial and as I’m still new to the city, trying to have a different treatment experience. Also because I’m curious about facial technics.
My recent experience was with a Courtney, who just opened her wellness studio in Flat Iron district. The first thing I asked was a cosmetics she uses. Sometimes even a professional cosmetics could be not appropriate for your skin. That was one of the reasons I changed my first facial specialist in NYC. Courtney uses two brands - Environ and Marie Veronique Skincare - both from LA, natural and full of good vitamins. As well as oils which she customize for each client.
My Complete Facial started with a massage. I wanna emphasize that Courtney did a lot of massage during my facial. I completely loved it because it’s one of the best ways to stimulate your skin. She continued with microcurrent to heal, regenerate, energize the cells and workout the muscles. After that pores are deeply open and skin is ready for extraction and serums.
The final stage is LED light therapy. Starting from the red LED light, which aids in the rebuilding of collagen while fortifying your body's natural healing properties. And finishing up with Blue LED light therapy to kill bacteria and regulate the sebaceous glands.
After all of that my face looked perfect. Healthy glow, no fine lines and no need to wear a make-up. It’s already been two weeks since I’ve done a facial and my skin still looks perfect!
