    Three products she can’t live without:

    1. Image Vital C AntiAging Serum
    2. Hush & Hush TimeCapsule
    3. Daily Hot water, lemon, and ginger

    Best skincare advice:

    “Exfoliating is key! Use vitamin C serum and sunscreen, daily. Sun protection is so important for skin health. Pro tip: every time you get a haircut, book a professional skincare treatment!”

    Her new favorite product:

    “The most recent launch from Image Skincare has a new superhero serum- Image MD Restoring Power-C Serum. A high-performance vitamin C and ferulic acid serum with the potency of 20% tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate to help restore, firm, and brighten the skin.”

  • @beautybarrageceo

    Sonia Summers, Owner and Founder of Beauty Barrage and newly launched Shielded Beauty. Sonia sits on three important boards: ICMAD (Independent Cosmetic Manufacturer’s and Distributor’s), The Innocos Advisory Board, Global Cosmetics Community, and The WWD Women Innovating Retail Advisory Board.

    Her best beauty advice:

    “Wash your face twice a day! Believe me, I know we get tired and don’t always take our makeup off but, it’s so important to keep skin clean and not allow your makeup to settle into your pores.”

    Products everyone should have on their counter:

    “You should always have a great hydrating moisturizer, a nourishing eye cream, and a kick-ass mascara. Everyday products that are good and nourishing for your skin (face & body). For me, I like to highlight the luxurious products that may cost more but make you feel incredible! Like my SkinCeuticals Body Retexturing Treatment and my La Collection Privee Candle by Dior

  • @thelaserboss

    Crystal Carlos, Esthetician and Founder & CEO of @kumimedspa
    Location: Houston, TX

    Her best kept beauty secret:

    “My best kept beauty secret is collagen. The benefits of collagen have improved my skin health drastically.”

    Products she can’t live without:

    “Products I can’t live without are hyaluronic acid, I take both collagen and hyaluronic acid from my TimeCapsule vitamin.”

    Her skincare routine:

    “My skincare routine isn’t the same without it! I always start off by double cleansing, using a vitamin c serum & SPF. At night I double cleanse, use my hyaluronic filler & a thick stem cell night cream.”

  • @mod.ernskincare

    Helena Chywski, Licensed Aesthetician at Modern Skincare
    Location: New York City, NY

    Three products she can’t live without:
    1. Tretinoin (prescription retinoids),
    2. Skin Ceuticals Silymarin CF Vitamin C
    3. Biore UV Sunscreen 50

    Her best skincare advice:

    “Start taking care of your skin early- inside and out- early 20’s, and never ever forget to apply sunscreen everyday.”

    Products everyone should have on their counter:

    “Products that are targeted for their skin concerns and conditions. Never buy a product based on a current trend. Remember that what works for me, might not work for you. Get the basics to start: Gentle cleanser, vitamin C (a percentage your skin can tolerate- usually start with 10% or lower), a moisturizer that works for your skin type, and sunscreen (always!).”

    Products everyone should have on their counter:

    “Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C Serum, Ceramide Moisturizer, and a broad spectrum SPF.”
