Red Carpet Skin Tips

Sonya Dakar’s Red Carpet Facial:

“When Gwyneth came to the Sonya Dakar Skin Clinic last week she got the Apple Stem Cell Facial. This includes a series of treatments for the face, neck and chest that leaves skin looking youthful, tight and glowing.”

Start by cleansing with an oil-based cleanser. Sonya’s Buriti Purifying Cleanser gently removes dirt and impurities with a natural blend of exotic buriti, grapeseed, avocado oils, antioxidants and Vitamins C, D, E.

To get an even and smooth skin tone it’s really important to exfoliate the face, decollete, and arms. Sonya uses her Detox Scrub—a super gentle, all-natural exfoliator that unclogs pores, promotes cell turnover and can be used all over the face and body to reveal smoother, healthier skin.

Next Sonya applied her Flash Facial—a 1-minute exfoliating gel that quickly sloughs away dead skin and other impurities and infuses nourishing ingredients that leave skin soft, plump and instantly brighter. This is an amazing secret weapon that anyone can use in an instant to give skin a luminous glow from head to toe.

Then Sonya applied her Nano Peel, which stays on for several minutes. Sonya’s Nano Peel is a professional-grade exfoliating treatment that can also be used at home. It uses lactic and phytic acids to soften the appearance of fine lines, giving skin that tight, youthful brightness that you need for the red carpet.

Sonya then applied her Stem Cell Transformer, a luxe anti-aging cream that targets fine lines and wrinkles, brightens a dull complexion and dramatically boosts hydration. She also used Eyeposuction, a daily eye treatment that reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Every Sonya Dakar facial ends with a healthy dose of Organic Omega Booster a nourishing and hydrating serum rich in Omega 3, 6 + 9 and her Daily Face Shield, a lightweight broad spectrum sunscreen.”

A few of Sonya’s favorite red carpet tips:

  • “Store eye cream in the fridge—the active ingredients will help reduce puffiness and dark circles, and the cool temperature of the cream itself will reduce swelling in an instant!
  • Stress is a huge factor when you have a big event, which may cause breakouts. Always keep Sonya’s Blemish Buster on an acne spot, a treatment that works overnight to banish breakouts and will not dry out skin.
  • Massage face with a cube of ice to create blood flow and bring oxygen to the surface of the skin.
  • Mix together chamomile tea and green tea, chill in the fridge and put in a mister—spray on the face before and after makeup goes on to shrink pores.”
