We love our aestheticians so much that, five years ago, we created a day just for them—National Aesthetician Day (OCT. 15). What started as a one-day holiday quickly transformed into a month-long celebration with National Aesthetician Month, a befitting celebration of all the skincare professionals who help us achieve our complexion goals. Not only do they help customize our skincare routines with high-performance products and indulge our skin in gentle yet impactful treatments, but they also serve as much-needed educational support throughout our skincare journeys. Needless to say, they deserve *all* the love.
We’re celebrating this year for NAM’s 5th anniversary with festivities including a mini-blog series dedicated to the spas and professionals that have inspired our brand. This week, we’re highlighting Tiffany Newman, Aesthetician and Owner of The Peninsula Facialist located in sunny Monterey, California.
Tiffany Newman has served a multitude of roles on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula as an Aesthetician for the last 12 years, including a Lead Spa Aesthetician, Freelance Educator, Medical Aesthetician, and for the last two years, Owner of The Peninsula Facialist. Tiffany has always believed in treating the skin with a “holistic meets clinical” approach. This includes educating her clients on lifestyle changes, nutrition and body movement, as her philosophy promotes treating the skin from the inside out. This is also why COSMEDIX was chosen as her first professional line to bring in, as she felt our clean, clinical approach to skin, backed by science, is a perfect fit for her clients!
Without further ado, let’s get Tiffany’s expert recommendations on the perfect COSMEDIX skincare pairings for a healthier-looking complexion.
Tiffany’s 3-Step Skin Care Routine For Post-Summer Skin
Tiffany’s Take: “Treat post-summer skin with my favorite AM trio! Mix in a shake of the B Complex Powder with Elite Pepoxide, then after applying, press BrillianCy Brightening Face Oil on top for overall firming, brightening and hydration!”
1. B Complex | Vitamin B Boosting Powder
Skin feeling or looking imbalanced from beach days this summer? The first skincare go-to in Tiffany’s morning lineup is B Complex, a customized blend of 10% Niacinamide and Biotin Vitamin B boosting crystals, along with the purifying power of Coconut Powder and hydrators, to help clarify and condition the appearance of skin for a more even-looking complexion.
2. COSMEDIX Elite* Pepoxide | Antioxidant Peptide Concentrate
Tiffany recommends clients mix B Complex in with Pepoxide,* the age-defying concentrate that helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors while also helping to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Featuring a supercharged blend of 16 powerful antioxidant ingredients and peptide amino acids, this deeply conditioning serum helps rejuvenate the look of skin with just a pea-sized application for a more radiant-looking complexion.
3. BrillianCy | Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil
Upgrade your post-summer skincare routine with Tiffany’s pick for a fresh burst of hydration and brighter-looking appearance: BrillianCy. Infused with a luxurious blend of skin-soothing Elderberry fruit extract and age-defying plant-based ingredients, this Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil absorbs quickly to condition and help protect skin from environmental stressors for a brighter-looking complexion.
Tiffany’s Expert Recommendation for Deep Cleansing
COSMEDIX Elite* RX Clean | Exfoliating Cleanser
Help deeply cleanse and balance the appearance of skin with Tiffany’s recommended COSMEDIX product, the skin-refreshing exfoliating cleanser, RX Clean.* Designed to gently cleanse away excess oil and impurities while also deeply hydrating skin with Lactic Acid, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera, RX Clean helps create a smoother skin surface for an improved look of skin tone and texture.
Tiffany’s Take: “While in the shower, massage in this Lactic Acid-rich cleanser and let it infuse into your skin for 5 minutes before rinsing off for a deeply purifying mask treatment that leaves your skin fresh and glowing!”
Tiffany’s Expert Recommendation For Acne-Prone Skin
Purity Balance | Exfoliating Prep Toner
Maskne has become *such* a thing for all skin types, not to mention adding stress to already acne-prone skin. To help restore the look of your complexion from daily environmental stressors, Tiffany recommends incorporating Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner into your daily skincare routine. Featuring a monumental cast of skin-loving ingredients like Salicylic and Lactic Acids, Tea Tree Oil and Niacinamide, this best-selling toner works to exfoliate and draw out pore-clogging impurities and excess oil without stripping the skin for a glow-getter, shine-free finish.
Tiffany’s Take: “Keep Maskne at bay by not only incorporating the exfoliating toner Purity Balance into your regime, but also use it to spray the inside of your mask to help control bacteria!”
Tiffany’s Guide to Your COSMEDIX Evening Skincare Routine
Tiffany’s Take: “Ramp up your rejuvenating night routine by blending and boosting your serums! My personal favorite blend for overall radiant skin is Cell ID, a boost of Pure C and Elite* Serum 24!”
1. Cell ID | Nutritive Defense Serum
Tiffany’s first favorite serum blend is ideal for those seeking rejuvenated-looking skin, Cell ID is formulated with a powerful blend of age-defying peptides as well as Japanese Orchid Stem Cell and African Mahogany Tree Bark Extract that work together to help improve the appearance of skin for a firmer and more refreshed-looking complexion. Help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots with this antioxidant-rich serum.
2. Pure C | Vitamin C Mixing Crystals
Pure C is a unique, age-defying mixing powder and skincare booster that helps brighten and improve skin texture and tone. The 100% L-Ascorbic Acid crystallized formula boosts the results of other serum and moisturizer cocktails—as Tiffany suggests, Pure C is a must in helping to create the perfect skincare cocktail for a radiant-looking complexion.
3. COSMEDIX Elite* Serum 24 | Rapid Renewal Complex featuring LG-Retinex
A step up from Serum 16, this powerhouse serum contains 24% LG-Retinex to help deliver optimal age-defying Retinol results—without the common Retinol irritation.Available from COSMEDIX Spa Partners like Tiffany, Serum 24* is clinically proven to help visibly reduce the look of medium to deep lines while also encouraging a brighter and firmer-looking complexion.
