Beauty Obsession of the Week: Sanitas skin care
Facials are a beauty treat that I indulge in on a regular basis. While I understand the greater good of extractions, two other facialist moves can usually ruin the experience for me. One is insulting my skin: Sun damage I can understand. Oily pores? I did nothing more than inherit them. And the other is product pushing. However, there are the exceptions when the pushed product begets a where-have-you-been-all-my-life epiphany. This happened when Shyou of Salon de Shyou introduced me to Biologique Recherche’s P50 Loition (best skin clearer EVER), and, more recently, when Park Avenue facialist Dangene suggested I try Sanitas skin care. “Our best find,” her colleague confirmed. She wasn’t kidding. For about six weeks now, I’ve been using my Sanitas regimen of cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer, along with a bi-weekly dose of Lemon Cream Scrub, which, with its intoxicatingly fresh scent and gentle exfoliators, has become my favorite. Now my acne-prone skin is staying quiet, my rosacea has all but disappeared, and my complexion has a suppleness and glow I hasn’t seen in a while. I’m sure much of the credit goes to Dangene, but after this recommendation, I will always take her advice.
