38 DAYSPA | AUGUST 2016 C u s t o m F a c i a l Cu st m a cia l (60 min./$300) THE SPA: Shani Darden Skin Care, Los Angeles THE BRAND: iS CLINICAL THE STEP-BY-STEP: 1 Cleanse with Cleansing Complex. 2 With low steam on, massage face with a custom ultrasound device. 3 Apply a gentle chemical peel or enzyme exfoliant, depending on skin type. 4 Perform extractions, then use oxygen to calm skin. 5 Put client under a blue LED light to help kill bacteria and boost collagen. 6 Finish with Extreme Protect SPF 30. PRO TIP: Customize, customize, customize. Owner Shani Darden knows that everyone's skin can vary from day to day. "Helping clients get on the proper routine to achieve healthy, clear skin is vital. I make sure each guest receives the right products to bring their acne or rosacea under control," says Darden. "That sets them up for a great skincare regimen that can be followed at home. Analyzing and adjusting each individual product is how I make sure their skin is glowing, and they see results right away!"

Mari Thomas, owner of Beyond Appearance Skin Care Salon, explains that Guinot's products help clients fi nd an equilibrium— they're not drying but still remove bacteria, calm the skin and balance pH. "Guinot's formulas, especially its treatments, have been consistently effective for over 35 years. Hydradermie is our star facial and it's outstanding. Mild electrotherapy and gentle massaging movements help the plant-based active ingredients penetrate more deeply into the skin," says Thomas.
