When your devoted clients include Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and even Kim Kardashian, you’re doing something right. Find out how one visit to the Erno Laszlo Institute changed my skin forever.
I never thought I would be using a bar of soap on my face. Of all the foaming, oil and cream cleansers out there, I’ve traded them all for a back-to-basics bar that was invented over 50 years ago and used by some of the biggest movie stars on the planet.
I don’t remember being traumatized with acne as a teen, but as I’ve gotten older, I have suffered into my 20s with hormonal acne, mainly on my chin. It’s my job to try and test new products, but sometimes they do more harm than good on my sensitive skin.
My life changed when I walked into the (beautiful) Erno Laszlo Institute in Soho, New York. I’ve gotten a fair amount of facials in my life, but this was something I’ve never experienced. There, a skin therapist gives you a completely customized treatment for your skin — giving you exactly what you want and need. They recommend products that will work for you and give you free samples. They truly care about your skin looking and feeling the best it can be.
If you can’t make it into the NYC Institute, go to the website, where you can diagnosis yourself as one of five skin personalities. Erno’s philosophy centered around 4 steps — cleanse, tone, moisturize and finish twice daily — as well as splashing your face 30 times with warm water to plump and soften the skin, accelerate the cell renewal and thoroughly cleanse the skin.
