Last year, Rescue Spa opened in New York’s Flatiron neighborhood and has become a new obsession among beauty editors. The owner, Danuta Mieloch, whose facials run around $500, came barreling into the city (her original spa is in Philadelphia) with a talent and sprawling, extremely chic spa like we haven’t seen in a long time. She’s gotten raves from VogueAllureNew York, and Into the Gloss. Clients include Pat McGrathNaomi CampbellAmber VallettaSophia AmorusoEva Chen—and now, naturally, me.

That said, I went in for my first facial at Rescue Spa ready to be a critic. I have a complicated sensitive skin/hormonal acne situation that I’ve found most estheticians aren’t equipped to deal with, and I also find that most facialists have a terrible, bullying, know-it-all-complex about skin care (especially acne) that will drive you to never return. Jane Larkworthy wrote about this phenomenon beautifully.

 

 

But Mieloch is as much a psychic remedy as she is a technical wizard. She listened to my diatribe about all the things I’ve tried, didn’t scold me, asked lots of questions, and suggested solutions that lined up with what I’ve already come to know about my skin. There was no “You’ve got it all wrong, everyone you’ve ever talked to is wrong, I will save you!” speech. Instead, she told me what she has been through herself with her own acne, what she thinks I might like (not must do or I’ll die), and then proceeded with such thorough and meticulous extractions that my face had soft, buttery, marshmallow skin for a month afterward. I haven’t felt anything like that in a long time. I would have been petting my cheeks from dawn to dusk if that wasn’t something that could trigger more acne, and my breakouts went down from one a day to about one a week. Mieloch made a devotee out of me, and the Biologique Recherche-heavy routine she suggested—including, yes, P50—has been working really well (though I plan to give it one more month—remember, I’m a skeptic).

Here are some of the important skin care lessons that Mieloch—who tells me she’s done approximately 10,000 facials in her career!—gave me about skin care:

 

 

GOOD SKIN CARE IS LIKE GOOD FITNESS

“I love everybody’s skin, and every skin has its own positives and some challenges. If it’s acne, it’s usually a person with oilier skin, so they don’t have to battle wrinkles. If it’s super dry skin, dehydrated, then we can moisturize more. There’s always an answer, and you can always improve the skin at any age because skin is a living organ that regenerates itself. If you get a cut, it heals. It might be not an overnight sensation, but if we develop a plan, we’ll make it work. That’s how life works. You go to a personal trainer; it’s not an overnight thing.”

DO THE DOUBLE CLEANSE

“Never go to bed without double cleansing your skin. Most of us wear makeup, sunscreen, or a more occlusive cream during the daytime to protect ourselves from the environment. It stays on your skin, oftentimes it’s waterproof, so you need to break it down. Massage your cleanser in and remove that first, and then use a second cleanse for more of a treatment, where you’re really softening and preparing your skin to receive the next step.”

 

 

TRY MILK CLEANSERS

“I love a milky cleanser across the board, for two reasons: If you’re using an oil cleanser it might soften your skin, however, once you remove the oil, it still leaves that film. Long term, it’s not a good solution. And then, the sudsy and the more foamy cleansers, they might over-strip you.”

TECHNIQUE MATTERS

“Cleansing just using your hands only is not enough. You need to really massage; you really need to use your fingers to get into little crevices. Then it’s best to remove it using a washcloth, this way you’re assisting to removing all the buildup. I like the muslin cloths. Or softer, gentler ones, like a baby cloth.”

 

EAT PROTEIN

“I’m happy how people are really pay attention to nutrition. All of a sudden we heard about bone broth, and that’s the best thing for your skin because it’s packed with protein. Our skin is protein; you want the proper protein and fat content, like avocados, and eating things that are collagen-dense.”

BUT BE CAREFUL WITH DIETS

“Dieting is really harmful for skin. Finding your happy weight, and staying within that is really important, because each time you dramatically diet, your collagen fibers are collapsing. Think about: If you lose so much weight, all of a sudden you have stretch marks, your skin is loose, and so forth. As a young girl, it’s not a problem. But as you get older, collagen fibers are not as elastic; so each time you lose so much weight, it’s almost like losing after pregnancy, it takes time to recuperate.”

UNDERSTAND EXTRACTIONS

“Extractions are controversial because they can also spread bacteria. So you have to be really, really careful. By saying I believe in extractions, it’s only if I do them. [Laughs] I know the consequences of what I’ve done, and I can warn my clients [about the healing process afterward]. When people do them at home they squeeze inward, but you have to stretch out and pop up. You’re going under the skin, and pushing it out. You want to feel that the bottom of the pimple is cleared out. But you have to be trained and have done thousands of facials. If you’re tempted or you have that nagging whitehead that is right there, then only do it after a shower, when skin is totally softened, being so gentle, and really sterilizing. Remembering that extractions need to apply alcohol or something antiseptic afterward, because it’s almost like you are puncturing the skin. You have an opening; it’s like mini surgery.”

SHE’S IN THE P50 CLUB

“It’s the most magical product I’ve come across. P50 is created to balance the pH of the skin, so it’s a little bit like probiotic for your skin. Our skin constantly struggles to stay at the right pH, which is 5.5. When you’re young, you’re more acidic. That’s why younger people have more breakouts—acne loves that state. As you get older, you’re much more alkaline—dryness, dehydration. If you’re balancing your skin with pH, the skin does not have to spend its energy to balance the pH; it spends energy to heal. It’s like a factory, there’s only so much you can pull out of it. The more healthy environment you create for your skin, the better it is.”

INDEED, ADULT FEMALE ACNE IS ON THE RISE

“I think more and more women battle acne, even in their 30s, adult acne. It’s hard to point where the culprit is. It might be [the] fact that we don’t have children as early, or hormonal imbalances, or things like that. It’s hard to tell, with stress and pollution and all that stuff. I think everybody’s different; everybody has different skin, and it’s best to really seek advice first, really expert advice, and then follow that regime and see how it’s working, observing. Getting in tune with your skin I think is the best.”

SHE TRAINED LIKE A NURSE

“I studied skincare in Poland. It’s a three-year study after high school to be an esthetician. You study like a nurse alongside with doctors and nurses, and then you just kind of take up the front direction in the second year and third year. An esthetician is more like a hygienist for a dentist, so you can do certain things more. You can extract deeper, you can remove skin tags and things like that in Poland because it’s an actual profession. I think it’s going this way here.”


Danuta’s Winter Essentials

It’s important to take special care of your skin in the winter. Here are a few things you can do to keep skin moist and healthy all season long… 

  • Use a humidifier when the air is dry.
  • Put moisturizer and oil on your body immediately after bathing.
    Create a ritual of applying oils like Body Oxygenant followed by MSRH Corps.
  • Wear natural fibers, such as cotton and silk, because they allow your skin to breathe.
  • Cover up when the air is dry, to hold moisture in.
  • Focus on proper nutrition and drinking plenty of water.
  • Avoid things that trigger allergic reactions. Use detergent free of dyes and perfumes.
  • Mature and drier skin types should apply and reapply moisturizer to lock in moisture.
  • Let’s not forget hands (telltale sign of age). Apply hand cream and cuticle oil often.
  • Don’t forget to wear gloves while doing home chores and while outdoors.
  • Practice a good skincare regimen:
  1. Dry skin can happen at any age, but it’s most likely a concern if you’re 50 or older. This is because the glands that make oil for your skin get smaller as you age and produce less.  Many popular soaps and cleansers “clean” your skin by removing oil. This strips the skin, which often causes dryness or breakouts to worsen. At Rescue we always recommend a gentle milky cleanser like Lait VIP o2. Use with a washcloth to buff away dry flaky skin and reveal the fresh skin that lies beneath. Washcloths are super gentle on the skin and most importantly, they don’t cost much. 🙂

  2. Once your skin is properly cleansed it is extremely important to balance the pH of your skin. Our favorite product for this step is Lotion P50 1970.During the winter I personally use P50 1970 at night and P50W in the daytime (this gentler formula is fantastic for winter). *A reminder to the health conscious: all Biologique Recherche products are paraben-free and safe to use.


  3. After you’ve applied P50 follow with a hylarounic acid based serum to keep skin plump, hydrated and, yes, looking younger! Babies are born with a high level of hyaluronic acid, which keeps their skin plump and smooth. Unfortunately, the amount of hyaluronic acid in skin diminishes with age, most significantly after age 40. While it may not be possible to maintain perfectly dewy baby-skin, these serums help to restore the skin’s hyaluronic acid content. Applied topically hyaluronic acid increases hydration, improves elasticity, and reverses free radical damage. All skin types, even oily, will benefit from using hyaluronic acid serum. *For those who get injectables it prolongs the plumping effect.

    LayerWinter skincare is like your winter wardrobe, it’s all about layers! I always layer my serums, starting with the lightest texture and finishing with the thickest. Here is my current mix of serums and creams for daytime: AmniotiqueLe Grand Serum, Yall o2, Creme Dermo RL, and Fluide VIP O2.


  4. Your evening routine is another story. Winter is time to bust out the big game changers like MBR’s liquid surgery serum, followed by MBR Extraordinary Cream. Mind you I’m over 50 and the names alone provide a feel-good-factor (I’ll take liquid surgery anytime, no pain or risk involved).

    For younger gals I suggest Environ’s Cquence 3 serum. It’s packed with peptides, vitamins, and retinol to address antiaging in one simple step.

    I also highly recommend keeping the skin challenged by alternating your regimen every other night. Currently I’m alternating MBR Extraordinary cream with BR Le Grand Creme (*available in January).

    For a dry skin solution I love Vintners Daughter Active Botanical Serum – a clean beauty favorite of celebrities. It has a loyal following for good reason. This cult product is a powerful sustainably crafted oil that delivers skin all the essentials, moisture, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants.

    Valmont Regenera II is another winter staple. It’s a rich cream-balm that solves dry skin, lips, cuticles, patches, etc. Love… love… love!


  5. Rescue Spa Facials are always geared to problem solve. Whether it’s dry skin, brown spots, redness, irritation, or inflamed acne, Rescue Facials are always customized to focus on what your skin needs. With the right combination of products and high-tech tools, our estheticians can really create change in the skin over time to help you achieve your greatest complexion.


  6. Last but not least. Cold weather is the best time to develop healthy rituals and ceremonies. Taking care of my skin is a daily practice.
    Create your own magic, have fun in your mini beauty apothecary ….
    Light a candle….
    Mask often….
    Take a bath…
    Breathe….
    Get cozy in slippers and wrap up in cashmere …..
    Practice self love, cultivate wellbeing, sing, dance and feel like a goddess ….

Happy Winter :)))

Mandy Moore on Biologique Recherche via Into The Gloss


“I use Biologique Recherche P50. It smells intense, but it’s supposed to tighten your pores. You can feel it tingle when you dab it on—you’re not supposed to wipe it on. I went to this facialist in the Valley for a few years and she exclusively used Biologique Recherche products. I loved going there because part of her routine was to use these pulsating sponges to help you better absorb the product and to tighten your skin—it makes you look like you’ve had an instant facelift. I stopped using Biologique Recherche for a while, but my skin felt like it was out of balance, so now I’m back on.

I’m at the age where I have to start thinking about the under-eye lines and stuff. I don’t necessarily care about aging—I think aging is beautiful—but I also want to try and maintain things for as long as possible.  When I want to be more dewy, I spray Biologique Recherche Fluide VIP O2 on my hand and then pat it on my face to look extra glowy. It’s apparently supposed to protect your skin from environmental damage.

When I want to do a fun mask, Biologique Recherche Masque VIP O2 is a super yummy, ultra hydrating treatment that’s especially good for under my eyes. I put it on for 10 minutes. None of their products really smell great, but I feel like that’s why they work? [Laughs]

Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant smells like yeast. It’s awful. What you’re supposed to do is mix a little bit of it with baking soda to make this weird foam, and then put the foam all over your face for 15 minutes. It makes you feel so clean; it’s like my pores have been excavated. Frankie told me about the baking soda part. The mask is super emollient and thick, so when you add the baking soda it foams up and becomes light and frothy. Whenever my husband (Ryan Adams) catches me with the mask on, he makes fun of me, like, ‘Oh, I didn’t know you were in [the band] KISS today.’ [Laughs]”

Fashionista Philly Talks ‘Summer Skincare’ with Esthetician Joana Kula

Fashionista Philly met with Rescue aesthetician Joanna Kula for some great summer skincare advice…


In the city of Philadelphia, there are mediocre over priced spas where you can get your nails done or maybe an okay facial. Toppers anyone? Ouch no comment.. But if you want the best of the best you head over to 1601 Walnut street to Rescue Spa. Ever since Rescue opened its doors back in 2004, it has ranked as one of the best spas in Philadelphia. The Owner Danuta Mieloch is a skin care genius who trained under the renown Dr. Yvan Allouche in Paris. As soon as you enter Rescue, you feel whisked away from the busy streets of Philadelphia into a secret beautiful and serene setting where the staff caters attentively to their clients. Rescue is my go to spa, and their facials are such a treat for your skin especially with the changing seasons. The summer time is no exception to when your skin needs extra attention. Lucky for all my followers Rescue aesthetician Joanna Kula stopped by to offer some great advice and info for all you skin care lovers:

Q: What are the most common skincare problems that surface up in the summer?
A: Summer always comes with many skin problems, mainly increased oiliness and tendency towards breakouts due to sweat, humidity and environmental elements. I also see a lot of dark spots and pigmentation from increased UV exposure, sometimes dryness and dehydration from indoor air conditioning.

Q: We often hear that should you adjust your skincare from winter to summer is this always true and what are some great tips to help make the transition smooth?
A: If you live in a seasonal climate, where the temperature shifts from one extreme to the other, changing your skincare routine is definitely a good idea. I recommend switching to lighter products that are more water-based during the summer months. If you live somewhere that is warm or cool most of the year, you can tweak your routine as needed, but it may not need to change too much. A professional facial will help keep your skin in optimum shape and help it transition better.

Q: What are some great summer skincare products that you recommend to your clients this time of year?
A: Biologique Recherche Fluide VIP O2: a light moisturizing fluid that instantly plumps, hydrates and oxygenates the skin. It creates a perfect canvas for makeup, but can also be used on its own as a lightweight moisturizer.

Jan Marini Physical Protectant: this in my opinion, is the perfect sunscreen. It’s a sheer, non-greasy formula with purely physical filters and a broad-spectrum SPF 45. It contains micro-sponges to absorb excess oil, along with antioxidants to help combat free radicals. The best part is that it’s tinted, so it doesn’t go on white or pasty. Apply it over a light moisturizer and you’re pretty much good to go, no foundation required.

Valmont DNA Repair Serum: if you spent a little too much time in the
sun, this serum will help prevent long-term damage. Use it at night to boost cell regeneration and promote healing.

Dr. Dennis Gross Glow Pads: These exfoliating alpha-beta peel pads will not only get your skin smooth and clear, but will add a touch of summer glow to your complexion, without the UV damage.

Q: Sunscreen is very important during the summer but finding the right sunscreen can be tricky, not all sunscreens are created equal what sunscreen brand do you prefer and why?
A: For me, a good facial sunscreen must be effective and cosmetically elegant, meaning that it can layer easily with other products like moisturizer and foundation. It should not look obvious on the skin or feel heavy and sticky. You always want to look for a broad-spectrum formula with SPF 30 or higher. Jan Marini, Institut Esthederm and Natura Bisse lines all offer some great options and can be found at shoprescuespa.com

Q: This is the time of year when people go away on travel, what are some great travel tips for readers to help keep their skin in good shape while traveling?
A: Staying hydrated is key. Traveling can really deplete your skin of precious water and nutrients and in some cases can be extreme depending on the destination as well as the means of travel. I always recommend Valmont Prime Renewing Pack as an emergency skin saver for frequent travelers. It’s a mask/cream that can be massaged in and left on overnight. It does wonders for tired, dehydrated skin.

Q: Rescue Spa has been a big success since it first opened in the city. What do you think is the key to your success?
A: I think one reason Rescue Spa has been so successful is due to its high standards and the level of integrity not found in other spas. Rescue is not about gimmicks. From the amazing products, to the knowledgeable team of experts who are passionate about what they do, Rescue has constantly delivered on its promise and I think that is what keeps clients coming back.

Q: What are some important things readers should look for when selecting a spa?
A: #1: A professional, courteous and knowledgeable team who show
enthusiasm for their work and can provide a relaxing and comfortable experience for the client.  #2: Cleanliness: I cannot stress enough the importance of this detail.  If there is any doubt that a spa is not following proper standards or regulations, I would not take the risk.  #3: A good spa should offer a range of products suited for all skin types as well as services that can be customized to a client’s specific needs. Instead of a standard “cookie cutter” approach, the therapists must be able to ask the right questions and adapt the treatments accordingly.

Q: How often should a person stop in for a facial throughout the year?
A: Anywhere from monthly to seasonally is appropriate depending on the person’s lifestyle and budget. Being consistent is the most important thing to remember. Also following a good home care regimen will help to maintain the results in between treatments.

Q: Are there any new services/products you want to talk about being
offered at your spa now, and any upcoming events?
A: We are currently offering the following summer specials:
http://www.rescuespa.net/spa-services/specials/summer-specials-2014/

Q: What are some of your most popular services that are offered at rescue spa?
A: Rescue is known for its facials, but offers a full menu of services
from waxing to massage, body treatments, nails, hair and makeup.

New Year Resolutions That Work!

Here are several simple steps to keep feeling and looking your best all year long…

Reinforce your skincare routine:

  • Cleanse twice a day it’s essential for healthy skin.
  • Exfoliate. Get rid of old skin to reveal fresh skin cells.
  • Try RESCUE favorite Lotion P50 “1970” containing Lactic Acid. Recommended to use twice a day.  Or use Valmont ‘s fine grain exfoliant twice a week.
  • Stay loyal to retinol.  Trends in skincare come and go Vitamin A derivative retinol has been proven to stimulate collagen, reduce wrinkles, and prevent breakouts.  WARNING: Do not use retinol before waxing and make sure to wear SPF.
  • Moisturize like a pro.  Smooth on free radical fighting antioxidant serum, my favorite is DNA Repair by Valmont. Followed by a hydrating moisturizer.  I recommend 24 hour cream.
  • DIY Facial. Take some time to add a mask to your routine, twice weekly. Rescue cult classic Mask Vivant is like nutrition power pack for the skin. Renewing Pack is our favorite for a skin thirst quencher.
  • Protect your skin.  Our skin is under constant assault; pollution, UV rays, and the elements. So protect it during the day with an adequate UVA & UVB sunscreen. Making sure you apply a serum underneath, like Fluide VIP O2.  You don’t want sunscreen directly on your skin. Also make sure to remove sunscreen at night… you don’t want those chemicals falling asleep with you.

Drink Plenty of Water!

  • Dehydrated skin is old looking skin.  Boo, who wants that? Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.  Try an at home Rescue favorite by infusing with lemon & lime or orange, cucumber, and mint.

Exercise!

  • Revamp your routine.  Keep your blood flowing. Try new classes at yoga.  Try new sports like tennis, swimming, or racketball.

Diet

  • My favorite skin enhancers are avocado, flax seed, chia seeds, nuts, fatty fish (think salmon), berries, lean protein and vegetables.
  • Avoid processed foods, white flour, soft drinks, and fast food.

Update your makeup bag.

  • Our skin is forever changing what worked previously may not be the best makeup for you going forward.  Try different foundation, our RESCUE favorite is the L’Elixir des Glaciers Teint Precieux. It’s like a skincare enhancer with precieux serum and a self adjusting coverage.  This is way beyond any bb cream out there.
  • Experiment. Try new colors.
  • Make sure your eyebrows are beautifully shaped.  It looks like this year is still going to be all about brows and lashes.  Try Revitalash and Revitabrow for the healthiest, fullest, lashes and brows imaginable.

Update your wardrobe

  • This year different patterns and textures work together. Experiment with what’s already in your wardrobe. Dig out some patterns you’d never thought you’d wear together and go for it. Borrow mom’s and grandma’s old clothes for a retro revival.  It makes dressing up fun!

Happy New Year to everyone!

Danuta Mieloch, Owner and Esthetician at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa

 

Happy Holidays from Danuta!

With the holidays right around the corner I’d like to share some of my quick tips on how to look fresh, stay healthy, and glowy!

  1. Good grooming goes a long way.  Make sure this time of the year to squeeze in your eyebrow shaping, manicure, and bikini wax for a quick pick me up! Everything else seems so much easier when you have the basics down. A beautiful nail color can be your best accessory, eyebrows frame your face, and a bikini wax leaves you ready for anything (beach, bed, whatever)!
  2. We all want radiant glowing skin which is easily attainable with a consistent skincare regime.  Make sure you don’t cut corners this time of the year and continue to cleanse well, especially at night after you’ve had a few cocktails and would rather go straight to bed.  A mild acid peel is an instant brightener!  An at home alpha beta peel from Dr. Dennis Gross or P50 “1970” will do the trick. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize… this is the time of the year to go for it. Serums, Masks, Creams.  My go to products right now are Fluide VIP O2 and Elixir Glacier Face Cream, I love using them together for an incredible radiance.
  3. It’s the best season to have fun with makeup!  When else in the year can you use sparkle all over and get away with it?  Going from day to night I’ll play up either lips or eyes.  Deeper plums and emerald green for the eyes can be festive without going overboard.  You can’t go wrong with a classic red lip and a little black dress.
  4. Finding a balance with your lifestyle during the holidays can be a pain.  So if I OD on champagne I’ll have a nice green juice for breakfast and drink plenty of water the following morning, it makes me 50% good.  I usually aim for 75% good with my diet, December is quite unique and I’m happy with 50/50.
  5. It’s better to give than to receive! Gift Giving is the easiest thing for me. I offer all my friends Rescue Gift Certificates, relaxation is something I know they’ll appreciate.
  6. Holiday ambiance is important to me.  I keep a holiday candle on my coffee table with the beautiful seasonal floral arrangements my sister-in-law makes.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
