Hollywood skincare guru Kate Somerville visited the Nordstrom in Oak Brook near Chicago for the Nordstrom Beauty Event last Saturday. She held two Q&A sessions for fans (and new converts!) of her eponymous skin care collection. Kate made for an extraordinary skin educator because she not only reviewed her products but also offered excellent skincare advice for everyone on all subjects, including anti-aging, eczema, acne, sun spots, skin discoloration and more. She told us after working in a clinic and seeing how harsh some products could behe started her own line of products to get the right balance to avoid irritation! Her basic tips for skin health are “Steam, Exfoliation, Hydration and Seal It In (with a moisturizer).” Each of us have different needs and Kate was there to help us figure it all out.
Guests at the event each had the opportunity to experience the DermalQuence treatment using a hydrating machine. I can honestly say, this is like an instant face plumper! It’s Kate Somerville’s “go-to” facial for celebrities pre red carpet. Kate informed us her DermalQuench Liquid lift (in a bottle) is just as effective as the machine treatment – if not even more potent. Oh joy! Can you tell I loved this treatment? Now I enjoy using it at home.
Here is my personal skin care prescription for normal to dry skin and for anti-aging:
Gentle Daily Wash
ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment, 2 times a week (tip: use in the shower for more steam and moisture!)
Clinic-To-Go Resurfacing Face Peel Pads, 2 times a week
DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment with Hydrafill Complex
Quench Hydrating Face Serum
Seal It In:
Age Arrest Anti-Wrinkle Cream
IllumiKate Concealing Eye Cream, (comes in 3 shades, light, medium and dark)
