A true expert in all things skin care, Matthew shares some savvy skin care advice, while professing his love for retinol.
PRODUCT LINES YOU USE At my practice I currently use Cosmedix and Danné Montague-King. My clients and I are thrilled with the results we see.
FAVORITE TREATMENT TO PERFORM I customize all my treatments because no two clients’ skin is the same. I love that I get to treat every client differently and with a combination of treatments.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEW PROFESSIONALS Do not compare yourself to anyone else. Seek inspiration from others, but never compare. There is only one you.
BEST SKIN CARE ADVICE Be gentle. I learned early on being super harsh on my skin was stripping it and throwing everything out of whack. It is all about balance.
HOW MUCH TIME YOU SPEND ON BEAUTY IN THE MORNING 10 minutes max – I keep it pretty simple in the morning. It is more about antioxidants and sunscreen during the day for me.
FOOLPROOF SELF-CARE MOVE Working out. I try to push myself to at least run every morning. It is good for the body, skin, and mind, especially.
SKIN CARE STEP YOU WON’T SKIP Cleansing. It is the base to the rest of a regimen. A gentle cleanser that removes all the grime from the day makes way for the rest of your skin care to work more effectively.
PRODUCT YOU USE TILL THE LAST DROP Retinol, more specifically Refine RX by Cosmedix Elite. Retinol keeps skin cells constantly resurfacing, which means fewer wrinkles and marks and more glow.
SKIN CARE TODAY IS ALL ABOUT… Education. We are lucky to live in a world where we can have answers to everything at our fingertips. Skin care over the years has blown up and people are getting a better understanding of the hows, whats, and whys.
