SheFinds Solution: Sophie?s Secrets to Youthful Skin

Well darlings, I’m no stranger to a glass (or three) of bubbly and a little Russian caviar, but this is the first time I’ve been able to justify them as a beauty treatment. Welcome to a new level of deluxe pampering – The Caviar Power Facial. Protein-rich Caviar is reputed to deeply nourish the skin, improve cell metabolism, increase firming action and provide essential antioxidant protection. I had the good fortune to be treated by the incredible Sophie at Face Focus (face-focus.com) in Englewood, NJ. Not exactly Rodeo Drive but as soon as I stepped into the little peaches and cream oasis that is Face Focus I helped myself to some dainty chocolates and relaxed. Chocolate, if it’s at a spa, is GOOD for your skin, right?

The facial was divine – but the best part of the experience was meeting and talking with Sophie – quite possibly the most informed beautician ever. When I inquired what her top three most important pieces of advice are for taking care of your skin, she had to think for a moment. “Well I won’t even waste one on washing your face,” she decided. Apparently that’s so obvious it’s like recommending breathing. (Oops.)

Number one was easy – sunscreen, sunscreen, and more sunscreen. Every day, no matter what, it should be the last product applied on your skin. I’ve been loving the zianatural.com line of skincare products this spring – substantial but not greasy. Shady Day Sunscreen Wipes and Sticks available at shadydayinc.com contain no artificial ingredients. I recently discovered this smartly packaged set (I’m a sucker for packaging) from Korres.

Sophie’s second tip – use an anti-oxidant in the morning, after cleansing, when your skin is primed for it. Try pH Advantage’s PH Advantage Boosters: High Potency Effective “C” Serum or Kinerase C6 Peptide Intensive Treatment.


imageFinally – at night, after you wash your face (and not with soap, judging by Sophie’s reaction to my soapy confession). Try Clarins Clarins Super Restorative Serum. Or if you already have a night potion you love, use N.V. Perricone M.D. Alpha Lipoic Acid Evening Facial Emollient for double duty action.
