In this year’s Global Spa and Wellness Trends Forecast we predicted that beauty was going to get hyper-personalized and become more on-demand. One beauty brand leading the pack is Skin Authority. Using the Skin Coach On Demand program you can log in and chat instantly with a skin expert about your unique skin concerns and get expert advice and recommendations. The powerhouse behind this is our very own beauty expert, Skin Authority co-founder, product formulator, and CEO, Celeste Hilling, who is the personal skin coach of gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings and actress Serinda Swan. Between running a business, being a mom, and helping celebrities get glowing, gorgeous skin, Celeste manages to keep her own skin flawless by following simple steps that she was willing to share with us!
“Skin care is like working out;” Celeste explained, “you can’t just lift one weight or only cleanse and expect to look amazing. There are basic things you need to do daily for healthy, radiant skin. Regardless of your crazy busy schedule, these steps are simple to incorporate into your lifestyle.”
1. Antioxidant Nourishment
Celeste makes sure to always use antioxidants to help absorb UV damage. Her fave is Skin Authority’s Super-C Serum, which in addition to infusing skin with antioxidants it stimulates collagen. Having a great multi-tasking product is key when you have a busy schedule but still want to maintain healthy, clear skin!
“The cardio of skin is resurfacing. You want those cells to turn over every day,” urges Celeste. Skin Authority Resurfacing Accelerator is her choice; it’s an exfoliating gel which enhances the skin’s natural cellular turnover cycle. Celeste recommends using a natural resurfacing agent such as glycolic acid to gently dissolve dead surface skin cells to be replaced with new, plump ones.
“You’ll want to address your skin conditions. I’m 56, so I use Wrinkle Reversing Serumand Dramatic Eye Lift Both of these products contain Skin Authority’s exclusive SGF-4 Technology to repopulate get those skin cells and produce healthier cells,” adds Celeste.
Wear sunscreen daily, rain or shine. Celeste shared a tip that most of us forget, “A lot of people don’t realize that that UV rays go through glass – car windows, those in your home and office, etc. Another reason to wear sunscreen daily.”
5. A Dose of D
Seven out of every 10 women are deficient in vitamin D. I personally use Skin Authority’s VitaD Topical Elixir and Whole Food Spice Powder daily. Vitamin D not only makes your skin radiant, it also works wonders for your mood!
6. A Healthy Lifestyle
Skin care doesn’t end with products, it’s also so important to have a healthy lifestyle. Celeste emphasized the importance of fitness, eating right, and drinking lots of water.
