A Master Facialists 3 Simple Rules For Glowing Skin This Holiday Season

Her craft is all about the ‘art of the genuine.’ –Thrive Global

1. Cleanse your skin thoroughly at night to take all the party makeup off. I recommend double cleansing to be extra thorough. My mom used to preach “If you don’t cleanse your skin at night you age 7 days faster.”

2. You only have one skin, look after it. Create a daily ritual of cleansing, layering your serums and moisturizing.

3. You only have one life, live it beautifully. Make time to relax, sleep, eat well, exercise, and have beautiful experiences.

NEW at RESCUE! The “Water, Light, Skin” Trilogy

These incredibly refreshing Institut Esthederm products do much more than refresh and uplift your spirits… they also repair and regenerate your skin with advanced technologies!

  1. WATER: Improve the skin’s overall quality and vitality. Cellular Water Energizing Spray (3.5 oz) is a treatment water that replicates the skin’s own water, it contains high levels of mineral salts and trace elements and boosts the effectiveness of all other skin care products. The skin regains natural balance. It bubbles with vitality and radiates health.  Spray onto the face and body and massage in gently. Can be used before cream as a serum, after make-up as a setter, or during the day as often as needed.
  2. LIGHT: Preserve the skin’s youthful appearance. UV Incellium Spray (3.3 oz) boosts the skin’s natural defenses, protecting it from environmental aggressors and preventing sun damage. This patented technology “Eau Cellulaire” is the equivalent to water found in the skin. Cellular Water optimizes the cells’ vital functions, better adapting skin to its environment.  Regular use slows the skin’s aging process down.
  3. SKIN: The skin stays young longer. E.V.E (1 oz) naturally regenerates the skin by replenishing basic biological substances to ensure continuous self-regeneration, preserving and restoring the skin’s original qualities. Essentially creating brand new skin.  E.V.E. is to be used as a cure.  We recommend a 3 week intensive treatment, 4 times a year, day and night.  Ideal for change of seasons or whenever your skin is tired, stressed, and weakened.



Winter is here and so often clients complain of skin that is dry and dull. Their spirit is worn down by winter blues and their skin shows signs of lethargy. So how do I keep my glow you ask? Here it is, inside and out!

First, I start with increasing my colored foods, even if I’m not in the mood. This means eating or drinking more greens, more orange, red and purple. For example a kale salad with beets, orange and red bell peppers, throw in some nuts and you have a party! Two of my favorite local restaurants, Milah and Pure Fare help me keep my diet colorful, especially on the go! Or, my all time favorite is Pangaea Earth Foods, for phyto nutrient packed juices that are fresh, organic and raw! In about a week of incorporating juice supplements into your diet, you will notice a gradual elevation in energy, mood and glowing skin! Promise.

Secondly, I take a Nordic Naturals omega 3, plus D3 supplement daily, this helps with maintaining the skins immune system. It is great for spikes in eczema or psoriasis. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist to see if omega 3’s could benefit you!

Next, you got it , P50 by Biologique Recherche! This product exfoliates, hydrates and evens out skin tone, giving you back that luster.  Here’s a little secret, sometimes in winter if my skin is feeling exceptionally sensitive, I dilute my cotton round with a little water to make the sting a little less intense. It’s a great way to ease the P50 bite during harsh winter months.

Then, of course you must serum!  Serums are equivalent of taking a supplement or vitamin, but on the face. Sometimes, your moisturizer simply can’t do it all. Serums can either go on top of, or underneath of your moisturizer.  Currently I am using Infinite Radiance Essence by Valmont. Ask your esthetician today for suggestions on a serum that’s right for you, mention this blog post and receive 10% off your next serum purchase, or use promo code TIRZAH on shoprescuespa.com for 10% off on your serum purchase.

Finally, I have two products that are truly essential to maintaining my glow in the winter, first, for my face it’s my Bare Minerals All-over Face color.  This is a magical loose powder that I typically use everyday. It has a luminescent quality, great for sensitive skin types, and lightly conceals skin imperfections with out that heavy foundation feel. It’s free of just about everything and it’s high mineral content gives you gentle sun and free radical protection. It’s my secret to keeping my summer glow, even in winter! *must be applied with large cheek brush for best result. Dip, shake and dust.

And last but definitely not least, is Weleda’s Calendula Body Wash For Baby. You don’t have to have kids to buy this product! This is a best kept secret, it’s a baby body wash that I use on my body in the shower daily. It’s wonderful for skin that is sensitive, dry, itchy etc… This body wash is a silky, luxurious texture that is formulated with hand-picked Biodynamic calendula, it soothes dry winter skin, eczema, or if you just want to maintain healthy glowing skin all year long.  Get rid of your pH stripping, hard, moisturizing soaps and give this wonderful healing body wash a whirl!

Well, there you have it, this is how I keep my glow in winter! Try one or all of these suggestions and you won’t be disappointed!

Happy and healthy New Year!
