How To Do the Erno Laszlo Double-Cleansing Method Plus Tips for Your Skin Type

To replicate our favorite facial at home, we employ the double-cleansing method: removing makeup first with an oil, followed by a cleanser to wash the grime away. The age-old practice traces its lineage back to Dr. Erno Laszlo, the Hungarian physician who invented the double-cleanse method in 1935. “Dr. Laszlo believed that if you do nothing else, wash your face,” says Kristy Watson, Erno Laszlo Chief Marketing Officer, of the man who basically invented personalized skin care for the likes of Greta Garbo, Jackie O. and Marilyn Monroe. “He believed that skin care should be personalized and that no two skin types are alike, which is why we offer multiple solutions in our collection.”

Today, nearly a century after its inception, the Erno Laszlo company continues to believe that healthy skin begins with a thorough double cleanse. “Our mantra is, we cleanse your skin without stripping it of its vital nutrients and moisture so the skin remains hydrated and refreshed,” says Watson. Below, she takes us step-by-step through finding our perfect routine, plus offers tips targeted to treating acne and other skin conditions.

Gut-Based Beauty with The Beauty Chef

If you want that outer glow, first you need to go within. New Age hot air, this isn’t. It’s science. A balanced, healthy gut is key to radiant skin, as The Beauty Chef founder Carla Oates will tell you. (We know because she told us.) Her line of supplements, formulated with fermented organic ingredients that promote gut health, expands the definition of skin care beyond serums and creams. You’ll want to heed her wisdom on beauty foods, bio-fermentation and the power of good bacteria. It’s downright enlightening, and skin-brightening.

So in the spirit of replenishing our beauty bags for fall, we’ve sought out the latest launches that we can’t stop talking about. From hydrating face creams to stay-put foundations, these essentials will take you through autumn, winter and beyond. Find out our new favorites—plus a few old ones too good to let go of.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Patrick Ta Shares His Pro Tips on Summer Skin Care (Hint: It’s All About La Mer)

When you think of the crème de la crème of skin care, La Mer is a logical go-to. Its healing Miracle Broth, crafted from sea kelp and packed with vitamins and minerals, is the stuff of legends, perfectly formulated to repair and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. So it should come as no surprise that La Mer’s lead makeup artist and global ambassador, Patrick Ta (who happens to work the famous faces of Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba and the whole Kardashian crew), has a serious sun-care regimen worth exploring.

We interviewed Patrick to get the rundown on his must-have La Mer products for summer and tips on how best to apply them. Turns out, we’ve been applying sunscreen and makeup in the wrong order for years. Consider us corrected.

What Is Microneedling, the Revolutionary Tool for Erasing Wrinkles, Scars and Acne

Jamie O’Banion swears she has sensitive skin. The CEO and co-founder of Beauty Bioscience is indeed blond and fair, but she is also passionately advocating sticking hundreds of needles into one’s face. We feel our skepticism is justified.

Within minutes of talking to the daughter of Dr. Terry James, co-founder of Beauty Bioscience and a pioneer in the fields of nano-lipids, microdermabrasion and microneedling (also called dermarolling), we’re rethinking skin care as well as our abiding fear of needles.
