What Our Beauty Experts Cannot Live Without
Spring is about renewal, and we think the best place to start is with your skin and your everyday skincare routines.
We sat down with The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg’s Retail Specialist, Silvie Lambert, to hear her best pieces of advice to keeping your skin healthy and glowing all year long. Silvie gives us a few of her favorite products, available for purchase in the Spa Boutique, that can help keep your skin looking and feel its best.
Exfoliation is Key.
Before you can get your skin looking and feeling its best, you must get rid of what is holding it back, dry skin. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from the surface, leaving a radiant glow and eliminates dullness. Gentlemen, this also softens hair follicles for a smoother shave. Silvie recommends using an enzyme rather than a scrub. Her favorite is the Intraceuticals’ “Enzyme Exfoliant.” Use once or twice each week after cleansing for a glowing complexion. Moisten face with water and apply a thin layer of exfoliant, massaging in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Leave on for up to 2 minutes. Thoroughly rinse with warm water. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.
Hydration, Hydration, Hydration.
Winter has probably left a lot of people’s skin dry and dull due to exposure to nature’s elements. Hydration is key to helping your skin look healthy and radiant. Along with staying hydrated, Silvie suggests using the Hylauronic Base Serum by Intraceuticals. Smooth a small amount onto face and neck prior to applying your favorite moisturizer. This product serves as “the foundation” of all of your other skincare. The hyaluronic acid provides extra hydration, plumps skin, and seals in moisture.
A long winter can be especially hard on our lips. Make Up Factory’s “The Bamboo Lip Peeling” is your solution. With the refreshing scent of mint, it gently exfoliates. Apply the gentle Peeling to the lips, massage in and then use a cloth to wipe away the exfoliating granules. Follow with your favorite lipstick or lip balm. The lips are left supple and visibly kissable.
