This week, we’re welcoming back one of the most sought after facialists in the game, Joanna Vargas! Having caught up with us live and in person fresh from her red carpet run-up, Joanna recommends the essential skin tools, ingredients and massage moves we can all use to seriously level-up our skincare routines at home. Plus, as author of the book, Glow From Within, Joanna shares her 360 approach to healthy skin from the inside out.

Mindy Kaling, Rachel Brosnahan and Maggie Gyllenhaal flock to her spas in New York and LA to experience the celebrity esthetician’s skilled hands, signature “triple crown facial” and patented LED bed (yep, we said BED).  And this just in, a stand-alone atelier opens in West Hollywood later this month, with plans to open a 10,000 square foot outpost in Brooklyn this fall. Until then, listen in to hear about:

  • At-home facial massage moves inspired by Joanna’s very own triple crown facial, and why she’s not a fan of jade rollers
  • Epidermal growth factors – found in Joanna’s eponymous line of skincare, Joanna explains all of the benefits behind the buzzy ingredient
  • The most #worthit at-home skin tools, and where to invest in pro treatments
  • Joanna’s best tips for treating puffiness – including foods to avoid
  • Rules for getting the most effective, clear skin results, for textured, acne-prone and sensitive skin types
  • The secret Japanese sunscreen we neeeed to protect from hyperpigmentation
  • Joanna’s personal routine, including the green smoothie she drinks for lunch every day

Pssst! If you missed Joanna’s first appearance on our show, go back and listen to learn all about how to protect and fix your skin’s moisture barrier. That’s episode 154, January 2021.
