REFINERY29: 7 Products Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Uses To Deal With Hormonal Acne

“At the moment, I’m really struggling with my skin — I’ve been dealing with post-pregnancy flare-ups for several months now,” Huntington-Whiteley tells Refinery29 in a recent interview. “What helps most is staying loyal to skin-care products that are gentle and effective. Oh, and regular facials, because I see incredible results in the brightness and tone of my skin after a facial,” she says, adding that she adores celebrity esthetician Shani Darden in L.A. and the pros at Rescue Spa in NYC.

ZIIP Microcurrent Device

Microcurrent facials have been trending up for years in the natural space. More purveyors of facials are offering microcurrent as a part of the service, like NYC’s trendy Rescue Spa, while other practitioners have dedicated most of their estheticianship to microcurrent, like Shamara Bondaroff of SB Skin (a favorite of influencers like Hannah Bronfman) and Tess and Sadie Adams, the sister duo behind Take Care Body Mind. The ZIIP device is microcurrent you can do at home, and while $500 feels like a lot, maintenance is key with microcurrent, and by doing it yourself, you’ll save money on treatments, which often run over $200 each, in the long run.

BRIDES: The Best Facials in NYC for the Ultimate Bridal Glow

What to get: Oxylight Facial

$500 (For a more budget-friendly option, try the Biolift Facial for $200)

“Rescue Spa’s lead esthetician Diana Yerkes calls the Oxylight Facial the ‘red carpet facial’ for a reason—if you want to come out of the spa looking like Bella Hadid, without a doubt this is the way to go. This facial combines a handful of modalities including Microcurrents, LED Light Therapy, Oxygen Therapy, Biosonix Ultrasound, and Negative Pressure Therapy. What do all those words mean, you ask? First of all, each is non-invasive, meaning no downtime and no irritation/red spots. It’s meant to take celebs (aka, you) straight from the spa to the red carpet (ahem, aisle). Before starting any treatments, Yerkes looked at my skin to asses my needs: i.e. HYDRATION!!! No matter how much mist and hyaluronic acid I douse myself in, estheticians always come at me with, “Hmm, you’re looking pretty dehydrated…” After a series of masks and a vigorous neck and face massage with Biologique Recherche’s cult classic P50 1970 toner, Yerkes used the Biosonix Ultrasound wand set on three rotating LED light colors specifically for my skin needs: red to combat fine lines and wrinkles, green for hyper-pigmentation (aka sun damage from my Florida childhood), and purple to reduce inflammation and promote collagen production. Then, we moved on to the microcurrent portion using the Biologique Recherche machine to stimulate the muscles of my face to lift and contour (also used in the Biolift Facial). It feels a little weird and tingly, and when the probes go near your mouth your spit will taste metallic, but overall it’s pretty low-key for high-key results. Then I was back to LED, this time under a large panel with the same rotating colors, accompanied by a steady stream of cool oxygen. At first it was a bit intense (the lights are very bright and the goggles very small) but after about a minute, it became extremely meditative—any yogi will know that feeling of super-calmness when doing deep breath work (plus, a hand and foot massage came with it, NBD). When I looked in the mirror, to be totally honest, I was astounded. I’ve legit never looked better, and never gotten so many compliments on my skin. The glow and overall firmness was so dramatic that I wore nothing but mascara for the next two weeks. The next time I want baby skin and have $500 to drop, Rescue will be my first stop.” —Aviel Kanter, Senior Digital Editor

The Beauty Trend You’re Going To See Everywhere In 2019: Biologique Recherche P50 (phenol-free)

Biologique Recherche P50 (phenol-free)

They don’t market themselves as a “clean” product, but Biologique Recherche is made in France and therefore up to E.U. standards, where more than 1,300 potentially harmful ingredients in cosmetics are banned. Since its inception there have been many versions, but the P50 is closest to the original without phenol, an active and questionable ingredient. P50 is also an instrumental part of the beauty industry’s current favorite facial with Danuta at Rescue Spa.

The Beauty Trend You’re Going To See Everywhere In 2019: Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum

Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum

Hyaluronic acid is a one-size-fits-all type of ingredient that works on every skin type. It’s been shown to help hydrate, plump, smooth, and calm the skin, which makes sense because our bodies make it on their own. This one is particularly absorbent, good to use night and day, and great on its own or for layering if that’s your thing. And yes, it’s pricey, but it’s good.

The Real Reason Your Pores Always Clog (No Matter How Many Facials You Get)

When it comes to self-care, it seems there are unlimited ways to spend your time and money.

“As a beauty editor, I’m in the very privileged position of getting to try out new products and techniques regularly, and my hope is to report honestly on what works and what doesn’t. For the first time in my life, I have gotten regular monthly facials long enough to make a difference to my skin (my current favorites are gua sha with Britta Plug and Danuta’s facial at Rescue Spa, hands down). While my skin is the happiest it’s ever been—it’s clear, smooth, and glowy—keeping my pores unclogged feels like a maintenance game that depends on more than just regular facials. Is it just me, or do pores require seemingly unlimited maintenance?”

Why do pores always seem clogged?

“Pore size is genetic,” said integrative dermatologist Cybele Fishman, M.D. “As we age, all our pores get bigger, regardless of where you started.” Their increased size means that they have the propensity to clog more easily, too.

Diana Yerkes, head esthetician at Rescue Spa, agrees that genetics and diet play a huge role but insists that skin care regimens and environment can make a remarkable difference. “Heat, humidity, and air pollution increase the likelihood that pores will clog,” she told mbg. “For example, my skin was easier to maintain in Seattle than it is in New York City.” Good news for those of us in the northern hemisphere who are moving out of the summer season and into fall and winter, which typically tend to be less humid.
