We recently took a road trip to LA and what kind of beauty editors would we be if we didn’t visit a Hollywood facialist? In today’s episode, we’re speaking to Shani Darden, the go-to skin pro for celebs like Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Live from her brand new, eponymous day spa in Beverly Hills, the former model-turned-skinfluencer reveals why starting her career working alongside a dermatologist proved so formative to her tried-and-true methods today. In fact, we’re “lasering” in on the top 3 skin treatments she most often uses to maintain the flawless faces of Tinsel Town’s A-list.

And for those of you who don’t have the budget for spendy treatments? Don’t worry, Shani’s got you covered with the specific names of machines you can use at home. Better yet, you’ll hear all about her own skincare routine, including her absolute obsession with retinol, a new product guaranteed to make your legs glow and a recent discovery she’s loving to smooth those stubborn, rough bumps on arms.
