You all know I’m all about the skincare over here on PIPM and I just had to get my face right for the upcoming NYFW events taking place this weekend. I knew my girls at Esthetiques could help me get some smooth and glowing skin, so I booked an appointment with Brandi for a lactic acid peel, nano facial and Intraceuticals oxygen treatment. Brandi at Esthetiques always takes great care of my skin and I’ve really learned the importance of getting regular facials and skin treatments to keep my skin looking fresh.
One of the gentlest chemical peels is a lactic acid peel. Unlike a glycolic acid peel or a salicylic acid peel, a lactic acid peel is extra gentle and good for even the most sensitive skin. Lactic Acid Peels are my favorite “quick fix” peels because they make your skin tight and glowy without actually peeling a lot like stronger chemical peels do. When used regularly, lactic acid peels are great for anti-aging, acne treatment, exfoliation, and fading hyperpigmentation. For me, I love getting Lactic Acid peels right before an event because they will make your skin look great without irritation or peeling.
When I first started going to Esthetiques for facials I knew that I wanted to get on a treatment regimen that would have visible results. Brandi recommended a series of nano facials, which is a new method of “microneedling” that doesn’t involve needles or blood. The nano facials are done with something called the Rezenerate Wand. The Rezenerate Wand is a professional-grade, state-of-the-art precision cosmetic tool featuring nano-technology designed to address fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes as well as a myriad of other cosmetic skin issues.
Finally, we finished up the facial with an Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion. Oxygen under light pressure aids delivery of age defying ingredients to the skin at the same time as cooling and calming the skin. The Rejuvenate Serum used with the oxygen pen contains lightweight Hyaluronic Acid and a powerful combination of vitamins and antioxidants. The Hyaluronic Acid helps to instantly hydrate the skin resulting in increased firmness, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved look to facial contours and overall radiance.
And I couldn’t have left without getting some eyelash extensions from Greer. I promise once you start eyelash extensions, you’ll never go back! I haven’t worn mascara in a year and hardly ever wear eye makeup at all. If you are looking for one small thing you can do to totally change your face, eyelash extensions will be your new best friend.
Thank you to Esthetiques for partnering with me on this post and getting me NYFW ready 🙂
