Ask Our Aesthetician

What skincare-related questions get asked the most?  Our resident Aesthetician, Jenny, shares the top three questions she's been asked during her 14 years of service in the medical and day spa industry. 


Q: How often should I exfoliate my skin?

A: The frequency of exfoliation depends on your skin type and your goals. For example, if you have thick, resilient, and oily skin you would likely exfoliate three times a week. If you have thinner, more sensitive skin, once a week would likely be best for you. Exfoliation is important in reducing large pore size, encouraging skin cells to regenerate, stimulating collagen and elastin production, allows treatment serums to penetrate more efficiently, and helps our skin look and feel softer and smoother. Check out our Brighten & Refine Collection to find out what polishing product is right for you. 


Q: What order should I apply my skincare products?

A: The best way to apply your serums and moisturizers is thinnest to thickest. For example, a thin, aqueous serum would be applied before a facial oil or moisturizer. This ensures active ingredients are absorbed correctly. Be sure to hydrate your skin with our Plump and Protect Collection


Q: Is a separate eye cream truly necessary?

A: The skin around our eyes is incredibly thin, much thinner than the skin on our face, and does require special attention. Eye creams are formulated in such a way that allows active ingredients to penetrate effectively without irritating the delicate tissue around the eye. If you’re new to eye creams, the best time to start using one is today! Try our Illuminating Eye Crème formulated with apricot, marshmallow, and mango hydrate to leave a light, dewy glow.
