Q: What is your favorite skin-care treatment?
A: “My favorite skincare treatment is our Sun Undone® Vitamin-C Infusion Facial at our Murad Inclusive Health Spa because it’s really rich in powerful Vitamin C to the skin, which is really beneficial for all skin types. The treatment was designed to restore clarity, texture, elasticity and firmness, while fading pigmentation and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Massage Envy also offers a version of this facial, which is wonderful as well.”
Q: What is your favorite beauty or wellness tip?
A: “That’s actually one of the most frequently asked questions that I get and my answer is always the same, “Smile daily, frown infrequently.” Simply smiling is the quickest and easiest way to make yourself look more beautiful and it will make you feel better also!”
Q: What do you think is the future of skin-care treatments?
A: “There will be an even greater push towards treating skincare as healthcare. This is because skincare truly is health care. When we take care of our skin and repair the barrier we are protecting the whole body; but without heart, brain, endocrine and digestive health our skin cannot function. Over the past 20 years I have developed a system which I call inclusive health. It involves improving every cell in the body since ultimately they are all connected. Inclusive Health uses a three-pronged approach:
• Looking better through better topical skincare and professional treatments.
• Living better through proper nutrition and exercise.
• Feeling better through by reducing the stress of modern living which I call Cultural stress.
By dealing with the whole person we see dramatic results in skin health resulting in beautiful skin in a healthy, happy individual.”
