NEWBEAUTY: G-Beauty Boom

GERMAN BEAUTY:

Liquid Surgery Serum, retails for $1,750, but it is the latest beauty induction that’s part of what can only be described as a “German beauty boom.” “I have been saying for the past few months that German beauty products are slowly taking over,” says Rescue Spa’s Kim Zimmerman. “We’ve been carrying MBR for a bit now and the products are phenomenal—they’re medical-grade, organic and offer truly incredible results.” Zimmerman—she’s probably best known as the world’s de facto P50 expert and a bit of a French skin-care connoisseur—also sings the praises of other German brands. “There’s Dr. Barbara Sturm and, of course, now there’s Augustinus Bader, who is a professor and a leader in epigenetic, anti-aging skin care. Then there is Susanne Kaufmann, who is technically in Austria, but I have to include her because it’s so close and so good! All of the brands are undeniably effective. I can’t think of any other category that’s so trendy in skin care right now.”

THE TECHNIQUE: So This Is How You Should Apply Oil

THE TECHNIQUE: So this is how you should apply oil

Don’t you just hate those “you’re doing it wrong” takes all over the internet? ITG regrets to inform you that this is another one. Face oil application. You’re doing it wrong, folks! After moisturizer, lovingly patted onto skin, used every day…wrong, wrong, wrong. Who knew? Danuta Mieloch, for one. The owner and wizard behind Rescue Spa was on hand to explain proper oil application. The nitty gritty. Listen up!

Apply it first

This first nugget is probably the most polarizing. Your oil journey starts sooner than you expect, the moment you finish cleansing your skin. “When my skin is still damp, that’s when I apply my oil,” Danuta says. “I follow it with some cream. I feel like it mixes really nicely with the drops of water still on my skin and seals in the moisture.”

Applying oil first is especially important when it comes to oils with active ingredients, like retinol. These oils need easier, unobstructed access to your skin and shouldn’t be layered on top of other products. As for other oils, you can apply those after moisturizer if you must, but as Danuta says, “that’s a lot messier.”

Massage, don’t pat

Unless you’re working with a super active (and super expensive) blend, massage oil into your skin in swift, upward movements. “You get that more relaxing benefit and this way improves the circulation,” Danuta explains. Save your precious oil pats for your rare, bougie elixirs.

But then pat excess

Now this is when you absolutely should pat. After application. Because oils are, shockingly, oily. Take a towel to lightly soak up any excess that’s sitting on your skin. Just because it’s an oil doesn’t mean you need to be greasy.

Use it as a moisturizer

Some basic cosmetic chemistry for you. A lotion or moisturizer is, more or less, a combination of fat—oils, butters, their synthetic substitutes—and water. You know what this means. Make your own moisturizer, folks. And use your skin as the mixing bowl. Apply when your skin is still damp to help the oil emulsify with the water. And that’s it! Easy enough, and ideal if you haven’t found the super light moisturizer that’s perfect for you.

Don’t over do it

You don’t need to oil up every day. In fact you shouldn’t. “The skin reacts better if you balance,” explains Danuta. “Use exfoliation, serums, modern skincare systems, in combination with your oils, but avoid using [oils] every day because they won’t balance out your skin. Create your own little apothecary and bring things in and out of rotation.”

THE PURIST: Facial Fitness

FACIAL FITNESS = BioLift Facial 

Each facial at Rescue Spa (rescuespa.net), where owner Danuta Mieloch famously offers her microcurrent bio-lift facial, begins with a 15- to 20-minute massage. “It’s our trademark,” she reports. “Massage works on an energetic level, and if you do it once a month, you tap into skin regeneration and that has a long-term effect. We always start from the neck and focus on lifting the muscles of the chin that get sluggish. The massage also increases the penetration of products.’’

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.
