Your A-to-Z Guide to Skin Care Today via WSJ

THE CULT OF skin care seems to have reached a fever pitch, with women (and men) accumulating costly, pleasingly packaged products to arrange in their bathrooms at a new pace. Self-taught enthusiasts, known as the “skintelligentsia,” exchange hyper-detailed info about ingredients and regimens in Sephora comment sections and on Reddit Subs like “Skin Care Addiction.” Ingredient apps like Think Dirty help aficionados weigh the difference between mugwort and St. John’s wort. If you’re more of a casual dabbler in the world of serums and sprays, however, the industry’s rapidly changing trends require a bit of an explanation. Where to start?

“It’s good to experiment with skin care,” said Danuta Mieloch, aesthetician and founder of New York-based Rescue Spa, “but make sure you have the basics down first.” (You know: cleanse, moisturize, SPF.) Once a simple regimen is in place, you can explore the hallucinatory range of procedures, from calculable to kooky. We gathered 26 of the buzziest elements of skin care today, but as Ms. Mieloch cautioned: “With skin care it’s almost like a pair of jeans—what’s good for some is not always as good for the others.”

New York Girls Can’t Stop Talking About…

LOTION P50 1970

“The allure of Biologique Recherche, a mysterious skincare brand beloved by so many influential women (especially in New York) was almost lost on me, as there’s not a ton of explanation on the internet and it’s infamously difficult to procure. I would forget about it for months until another low-key, glowy-skinned individual touted it as her secret weapon. What even is this? I’ve thought to myself many, many times. But here’s the thing, one application will demonstrate exactly how incredible this toner is for your skin. It’s a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid and keeps breakouts at bay, pores smooth, and your skin’s texture super even.” — Hallie Gould x Byrdie

“Jesus in a bottle,” “life-changing,” and “The Best Beauty Product in the World.”

You can order online from Shop Rescue Spa.

The ultimate question, of course, is whether or not it’s worth your money. I, and the rest of the P50-loving world, say yes. If you can spare the price, and choose the right formula (go see that esthetician, if you have to!), it will make a huge difference, and you will wonder how you ever lived without it. I do, as I pat it into my skin every night, and then climb in bed and turn out the lights and dream of salt and vinegar chips.

A Celebrity Dermatologist’s Science-Based Skin-Care Routine

On using P50 in the mornings: My bathroom looks like Sephora. I love to test new products and am lucky enough to be sent a lot of them. I use a micellar water in the morning. I am a fan of Biologique Recherche P50 lotion. I know a lot of people don’t like it because of phenol. But if you read the studies, it’s not dangerous, plus you can get a version without it anyway. It makes my skin texture look prettier, and it diminishes the appearance of pores.

On sheet masking to slow down: I also love the little eye patches that makes my eyes look brighter. I do have the Valmont ones...  and Valmont eye creams. I found out about Valmont from Rescue Spa — it’s my heaven.

Danuta Shares Her Evening Routine

Danuta Mieloch invited us into her home to share her Evening Routine. Trust us, you do not want to miss this. She has so many tricks up her sleeves! Double P50? Triple Masking? Microcurrents? It’s all in here…

 

I Flew 21 Hours for This Facial, and Boy It Was Worth It

Walking into Rescue Spa is what I imagine walking into heaven to be like: Bright, white, and walls lined with Biologique Recherche. Located a few blocks behind the Flatiron Building, Rescue Spa is an incredible space that caters to your every skin and massage need, as well as hair, makeup, manis, pedis, and brows—so you can basically walk in feeling like the shell of a human and leave looking like Gigi Hadid at the Met Gala.

I settled in at the waiting area once I arrived and nibbled on bliss balls and mint-infused water whilst I waited for my therapist, concerned over the state of my skin as I had only stepped off a 21-hour flight a few hours prior. I was booked in for the Biologique Recherche “Le Lift Parisienne” Treatment, and oh my goodness—bliss. After lashings of P50 (one of the world’s greatest skincare products, IMHO), LED therapy, and Placenta Serum, my “I just flew around the world and look like shit” skin was baby smooth, hydrated, and free of aeroplane gunk. It wasn’t quite as zen as Cap, and more of a straight-shooter treatment (there were no crystals or sage), but it was phenomenal. The closest thing in Sydney is definitely Mel Grant (if you’re dying for some TLC).
