Learning good skin care techniques and researching products have been at the top of my list for most of this year. It took a vacation to Hawaii and a facial at the Spa at the Four Seasons Maui to turn my skincare routine in the right direction. My esthetician was Lisa Mascaro who gave me the best facial I've honestly ever had. (Please request her if you are ever at the Four Seasons Maui!) Lisa looked over my skin and recommended I get the Kate Somerville Dermal Quench facial. I had heard of the Kate Somerville products before but I had never had a chance to try them out. My skin had been unusually dry on my forehead all summer so Lisa thought this would help even things out. Throughout my facial, Lisa started teaching me some amazing tips. (More on Lisa later as I'm really excited to announce that she will be answering your skincare questions here on Coquette soon!)
I wasn't sure if I wanted to try a new line of products since I spent most of the summer trying different products ranging from luxury brands to natural or organic. But just in case, I had Lisa write down for me a list of Kate Somerville products she recommended for my skin. After a few days, my skin still felt amazing and my forehead felt a lot softer than before. I did some research on Kate Somerville and decided to give myself a month to try out her products to see how it would work. I don't have wrinkles yet but I can see where they will form. (Starting with my forehead - ahhh!) Lisa recommended I start on an anti-aging skin care routine and she was right. (Btw, in France most girls start their anti-aging routine at 15 years old!) I really don't want my wrinkles to settle in my face just yet, so I'm doing my best to take care of my skin. I made a rule that no matter how tired I am, I must follow my little skin care routine that's only 5 minutes in the morning and less than 10 minutes at night. Plus, keep my body in great health by eating well and resting. After about a month now of using Kate Somerville products, I'm hooked because my skin has never looked or felt better!
I'm kicking off my skin care series on Coquette with a special interview with skin care expert, Kate Somerville! She's created a truly fantastic line of products and is the one celebrities go to for glowing, healthy skin before they hit the red carpet. I'm humbled that she's taken time out of her busy schedule to answer questions about her skin care line and for giving us tips on how we can all take better care of our skin this winter. I'll have the interview up sometime on Thursday!
Until then, watch this video below on Kate Somervile. Then find out more about my favorite Kate Somerville products I've been using after the jump!
