Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with BIOXAGE SPA’s expert facial Aesthetician Mercedes Sanchez. She will be sharing all her amazing tips on complexion care, exfoliation, and anti-aging.
Lets get right to it!
What is the most interesting thing you have learned about skin care in your career?
Skin treatments must be customized to each individual’s skin type. At Bioxage, we have a brief consultation with each client before they engage in their facial. I take into consideration, oily, dry, acne, or combination skin, as our goal is to achieve the perfect PH balance!”
What are your best tips for at home care?
- Always remove make-up before going to bed! I always recommend using cold water, as hot water can dissolve oils in the skin.
- Use toner always, the best is a product such as BIOXAGE Toner which does not have the ingredient salicylic acid which produces unwanted oil in the skin, which sends the wrong information to the skin, which in turn, creates an imbalance.
- I recommend morning and evening to use a serum before applying moisturizer. The Bioxage Serum is made exclusively from the Dead Sea products with all natural ingredients such as Almond, Rose Hip and Oilve oils, great for all skin types.
What is your ‘go to’ product?
I love the Bioxage Milk Cleanser, which soothes and softens the skin with natural ingredients such as Almond Oil, Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Verbena. Cucumber cleans, tightens and conditions the skin all in one! Plus extra added benefits of the Dead Sea water to improve skin circulation.
How often should we exfoliate the skin?
Depending on the skin type, for Dry skin, I recommend once a week. Oily skin Would be two times per week and leave on for 5 minutes. It is very important to remove the dead cells from the skin so that the skin can breathe and receive products deeper into the skin.
How often do you recommend a facial?
Since skin cells take 21 days to regenerate or ” turn over” I recommend a Professional Facial at least once a month for both dry and oily skin types. At Bioxage we specialize in first analyzing your skin, and then proceed with the proper treatment especially for your skin type.
