6 Questions With Yen Reis, The Inspiring Beauty Maven Behind Skin Laundry

Large Editorial Image


July 25, 2016

I first fell in love with Skin Laundry when I discovered their Clean Skin Pillowcase. For years,  I’d had beauty expert after beauty expert tell me about what a big difference a pillowcase could make, but it wasn’t until I tried this one that I really experienced the results for myself. Fast forward and not only am I still sleeping on that amazing pillowcase, but I never leave the house without applying some Renewing Eye Cream and I never go to bed without dousing my face in the Night Renew Treatment. I legit love these products.

And that’s exactly why I’m so happy to share this amazing Q&A with Skin Laundry’s inspiring founder, Yen Reis. Get to know her–and her booming brand–below.

SHEfinds: For readers who are unfamiliar, can you explain how Skin Laundry came about?

Yen Reis: After having my third son in Asia I developed hormonal acne that left my skin with acne scars and uneven skin tone. After experimenting with lasers I discovered that the best treatment was utilizing lasers at a more mild level and with frequent use to maintain healthy skin. Since then my skin has been in the best shape. When I moved to the U.S. I was looking for a similar solution and noticed there was a void in the market. That’s when Skin Laundry was born.

SF: We’ve heard amazing things about the laser & light facial–can you tell us about it?

YR: Skin Laundry has revolutionized the way people clean and care for their skin with affordable Laser & Light treatments in less than 15 minutes. By taking world-class laser and light therapy out of the doctor’s office and into Skin Laundry clinics, we have created a new category in skincare services. Our signature treatment is an incredibly effective and convenient facial that deep cleans skin leaving it clearer, tighter and brighter–with no downtime. Every treatment leaves skin deep cleaned and toned, and with more frequent treatments more dramatic improvements are seen in the areas of acne, redness, unevenness, dullness, hyper-pigmentation and photo-aging. Over time, significant and noticeable improvement in the overall look and quality of the skin are realized and sustained.

The best part is that your first Skin Laundry Laser + Light Facial is free!

SF: What advantages does the laser & light facial have over a traditional facial?

YR: Skin Laundry’s signature Laser & Light facial uses a proprietary 2-Step System featuring a combination of a YAG Laser & IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment.

The YAG laser deep cleans the skin by vaporizing dirt, make-up, debris and pollutants on the surface and deep within the pores. It also breaks down pigment and stimulates collagen, allowing skin to rejuvenate at a faster rate, which also helps to smooth and tighten the skin. Over time, it helps build the density and number of collagen fibers, strengthening the support structure for your skin. The only way to reach the dermis to provide this game changing stimulation is through laser.

The IPL is more superficial and targets the surface of the skin to improve discoloration (redness or brown spots), kill acne-causing bacteria and even out skin tone.

Aside from being extremely effective, the treatment is less than 15 minutes and there’s no downtime, making it easy to incorporate into your monthly or (better yet) weekly routine. You’ll walk out with clearer, tighter, brighter skin every time and, over time, achieve more dramatic improvements.

SF: Can you talk to us about some cult Skin Laundry products? What’s the one product you think every woman should try?

YR: Our cleansers are our cult products. At Skin Laundry we give your skin a professional clean with our signature treatment and we always make a point of letting our customers know that beautiful skin stems from clean skin.

I am obsessed with our cream cleanser. It lathers beautifully with a nice subtle lemon scent that is so refreshing. It leaves your skin clean and feeling balanced; not dry or not overly moisturized. If I wear a lot of makeup I always double cleanse with the oil cleanser (it’s great for makeup removal) and follow it with the cream cleanser for 100% clean skin.

SF: Why are you passionate about skincare?

YR: I have always believed that great skin allows everyone to be comfortable and confident with who they are and the most beautiful faces are those who feel that way. I am passionate about sharing that.

SF:  Any new and exciting products or treatment Skin Laundry fans can look forward to?

YR: Yes! We will be introducing our new Essential Daily Moisturizer (w/o SPF) in September and we’re opening a clinic in Tribeca NYC in the fall! Also, we’re currently featuring our Summer Essentials Tote, which includes: Purifying Facial Cleansing Cloths, Advanced Protection Facial Moisturizer with SPF 35, Hydrating Radiance Facial Sheet Mask, and comes in an adorable Skin Laundry Heavy Duty Beach Bag.
