Our first manicure, hair color, time wearing makeup: There are many beauty firsts that we never forget. One of mine is my first facial ever at the Mario Badescu Spa this past weekend! I’ve always struggled to find the right skin care regimen, and after talking to my facialist, I realized it was because I didn’t know my skin type. I thought my skin type was oily, which was incorrect! My t-zone is always very oily and my cheeks are usually a little dry. My skin type diagnosis: combination. After solving that puzzle, I asked about my pores. I’ve always had enlarged pores and longed for a matte complexion. My facialist said that I have medium-sized pores, and suggested a glycolic acid peel to help them appear smaller. My pores are noticeably less visible! I asked if there was a product I could use at home to help reduce the size of my pores and she suggested Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, with the same active exfoliating acid as the peel. The cleanser reduces discoloration, minimizes scars and leaves skin radiant and smooth. After an informative consultation and relaxing facial, I left the spa with tousled hair, twinkly eyes, and best of all, glowing skin!
