Are Pore Strips Helping or Hurting My Face?


As with most things, the answer you get depends on who you ask. Diana Yerkes, head esthetician at New York City’s Rescue Spa, understands the appeal but identifies how they fail to properly address the skin. “Pore strips are indeed fun, but I don’t find them to be effective at all,” she told mindbodygreen. “They remove the surface gunk and leave the ‘root’ of the issue untouched.”


Breaking Down the Best and Worst Skincare Trends of 2018 WITH Danuta Mieloch


Charcoal, sheet masks, 12-step routines—in a post-Instagram world, it can feel like a lot to keep up with the latest skincare trends, let alone try them out. And lest you forget, quality can be deceptive when you’re basing your own routine primarily off photos, videos, and alluring packaging. That’s why we consulted with an expert, skincare guru to Emma Stone and Naomi Campbell and head of Rescue Spa, Danuta Mieloch, to find out which trends are worth investing in and which ones are better to skip. As Mieloch says, “Stay with the trends but don’t blindly follow them until they run out.”

The veteran esthetician, who also counts makeup artist and beauty mogul Pat McGrath as a client, has the experience to differentiate. “I like to think that I’m an aesthetician since I was a child,” she says over the phone. “When kids were playing with toys, I had a little apothecary and dreamed about finding a cure for aging.” She went on to make her own lotions and extract her 15-year-old sister’s skin at the age of five. But these days, she’s thankful she’s found better tools. “I’m lucky I don’t have to mix things up in the kitchen anymore because there are so many good products out there,” she says. “Skincare can be confusing; that’s why it’s really good to find a good skincare specialist. It’s almost like finding a nutritionist or trainer. You don’t have to go all the time. You get what you put in—like workout, diet. No one is going to do it for you; you have to do it.”

That’s true, but it’s much easier to keep up with your own skincare routine when you know what you’re doing. Fortunately, Mieloch, who’s done more than 10,000 facials, is here to help break down which trends to try and which to skip.

MANREPELLER: “Lotion P50, it’s perfect for all skins from the most sensitive to the most congested” – Diana Yerkes

Biologique Recherche’s P50 Is Lauded, Hyper-Hyped and Expensive: Is It Worth It?

For further insight, I turned to Diana Yerkes, lead aesthetician at the New York City outpost of Rescue Spa. In addition to confirming that Lotion P50 is great for all skin types (“It’s perfect for all skins from the most sensitive to the most congested”) and its efficacy (“After awhile your skin exhibits the most coveted gorgeous healthy glow”), Yerkes also enthusiastically offered up the results of her personal experience:

“I have been using P50 1970 for over six years. I prefer formulations with phenol for anyone who lives in a major city like New York and needs to fight impurities and pollution a little harder than someone in a country. There are multiple variations of the formula to address every concern from dryness to pigmentation. Lotion P50 is a true magic potion. It is a balancing toner even though it’s known to majority as an exfoliator. The exfoliation is just one of the added benefits!”
