Ep 218 – Meet Sofie Pavitt, The “IRL Face Tuner” Who’s Magically Transforming People’s Skin
March 30, 2022
This week’s guest is Sofie Pavitt, the Welsh-born, NYC-based esthetician known as the “IRL Face Tuner” on Instagram. Her jaw-dropping before-and-afters for acne, scarring and hyperpigmentation have caught the attention of Glossier Founder Emily Weiss – not to mention Allure, IntoTheGloss, The Cut and Byrdie.com, who named Sofie “Esthetician of the Year” in 2021.
Today, the rising-star facialist is unlocking all of her secrets, revealing how we can dupe similar results at home. (Pssst – Sofie has been known to completely transform clients’ complexions virtually, without ever seeing them IRL!) We get the go-to products she recommends as a baseline protocol, along with her best advice on dealing with acne prescriptions like spironolactone, and the brand new in-office treatment she’s praising to undo scarring.
And finally, we get the scoop on Sofie’s upcoming product line currently in development. You know our calendars are marked!
