Countless celebs clamor for a facial with Tracie Martyn. Here she puts your skincare regimen in check.
As Madonna's facialist, what's the secret behind her flawless complexion?
Madonna knows how to stay fit and healthy. To prepare her for important events such as her recent Confessions concert tour, I gave her my signature Resculpting Facial that lifts, firms and contours and leaves your complexion immaculate. A soothing oxygen mist hydrates the skin at the end of the treatment. The combination of my high-tech facial with an at-home anti-aging regimen is the most effective way to rejuvenate skin.
How many skin-care products do I really need to use?
It's easy to get confused. I always recommend a simple three-step system. It consist of anti-aging and purifying cleanser (Amla Purifying Cleanser, $65) to sweep your pores clean and work on fine lines, an amazing, wrinkle-reducing exfoliant and mask (Enzyme Exfoliant, $90); and a rejuvenating, anti-oxidant rich moisturizer that firms, lifts and contours (Firming Serum, $185)
How often should I exfoliate my skin?
Thicker, oily skin may benefit from exfoliating nearly every day or at least three times a week, whereas fragile. sensitive skin would require sloughing away dead cells only once a week.
