Ive Been an Esthetician for 30 YearsThis Is What I Do to My Skin Every Single Night – Well+Good

Posted: July 8, 2020 at 3:53 am

Spin the wheel of glowy celebrity complexions youd like to emulate and wherever it lands, chances are Joanna Czech had something to do with it. With 30 years of experience as an esthetician under her belt, her facials are some of the most sought-after in the industry, and her intel is the stuff that beauty editors cling to like gospel. Shes schooled us in the benefits of enzymes for acne, and taught us why we should never, ever use thick moisturizers during the summer months, and our skin is much better for it.

As someone with a breadth of skin knowledge, its no surprise that Czech takes her own skin-care practices very, very seriously. I have reactive, dehydrated skin, which has gotten more dehydrated from loss of estrogen because of my age, says Czech, who also has stage one rosacea that is exacerbated by heat, stress, and certain foods. My skin doesnt do great with heat, needling, or deep exfoliation. I am all about supporting it with super hydrating, comforting, healing treatments and products.

As a special treat, she gave us a peak inside of her spring and summer season skin-care arsenal, and revealed what she uses on her skin every night. While her morning routine is chock full of nourishing products (and SPF, of course), she considers her evening regimen to be the most important, because skin at rest absorbs products better, so the efficacy increases. Read on for every product that graces her skin.

Post-cleanse, Czech balances her skin with P50. Its made with a combination of chemically exfoliating acids, which melt away dead skin cells and create a clean canvas on which to apply the rest of her routine. While the original P50 is pretty much the gold standard as far acid toners go, this formula has added benefits of helping with hyperpigmentation.

Massage is such an important step, as it speeds up circulation, bringing more oxygen to the tissue, resulting in brighter, healthier skin, says Czech. It can also change the shape of the face, lifting the brows, the jawline and emphasizing the cheekbones. Shes a fan of her namesake massage roller, which is made with two metal balls that de-puff your face while stimulating your skin. Pro tip? Put itor whatever roller youve got at homein the fridge or freezer for a luxurious cooling facial.

Czech changes up her routine seasonally, but right now shes currently slathering on this stem-cell infused serum. Its made with patented Bio-Cellular Technology that smooths and firms skin while helping to minimize fine lines and increase suppleness. Its also got hyaluronic acid to aid in hydration while you sleep. As far as application goes, shes a fan of the press and release motion. I spread the product on my skin and then press and release. Skin absorbs the product better, she says. And according to Czech, the best way to get your serums working over timewhether they cost $155 or $15is with a completely free hack. I make my own ice cubes from teaeither chamomile, green or blackand I run the cubes over my face after serum application, she says. This helps to seal in the product, and ensure its doing its job at max capacity while you sleep.

This moisturizer might just be the smartest on the market, and Czech co-signs its efficacy. It gives your body the building blocks it needs to create new cells, through amino acids, vitamins, and nutrients, which helps to improve the appearance of dark spots and acne scarring, while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, and restoring elasticity. At $170 a bottle, its hardly a budget buy, but its so effective it might just replace every other serum in your routine.

To up the effectiveness of her go-to eye cream, Czech infuses it with a drop of Protective Nourishment Eye Glow Serum ($89). The cream helps to lift the eye and even out the tone of dark circles, while the serum helps to minimize fine lines and puffiness.

Keep lips hydrated all dayand all night with this balm, which is made with nourishing ingredients like glycerin and castor oil. In addition to fighting off chapped lips, it can also be used to treat dryness all over your body, from your elbows to your knees to your nails.
