Olga Lorencin-Northrup, owner of Kinara Skin Care Clinic & Spa, shares her secret on how to get flawless complexion — no blemishes, sunspots, or redness around her nose; and rarely wears any foundation.
Lorencin-Northrup is one of the most celebrated facialists in the country. Her clientele list has been growing ever since she opened up her spa in 2003, including celebrities such as Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendez, Natalie Portman, and even Will Ferrell.
Here’s a look inside her personal stash of her favorite skin care products that you don’t want to ignore:
1. Favorite Chemical Peel – Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Care Alpha-Beta Daily Face Peel
A great chemical peel, if you have blackheads and acne.
peel, peel, peel — especially if you have a lot of blackheads and acne. Impurities make space for themselves and do not leave on their own. They need an eviction notice… hold back on scrubs and invest in a really good chemical peel.
This is a great alternative if you can’t afford to get $160 facials on a regular basis.
2. Favorite Concealer – Solar Protection Formula SPF 60 Tinted Concealer
This particular product is so brilliant that I’ve never seen anybody break out from it.
Lorencin-Northrup really loves that the color of this concealer is customizable. It comes with light and dark color tints, so that as you get lighter and darker with the seasons, you can change the color accordingly.
3. Favorite Moisturizer – Kinara Intense Moisturizer with Peptides
I was oily all my life and I used to use a lightweight moisturizer, but now that I’m getting older, my skin is getting dryer.
4. Favorite Vitamin C Serum – SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic
The antioxidants in this serum work to neutralize damage from free radicals before they start attacking your healthy skin cells. And the vitamin E in this serum helps stabilize the vitamin C, while the ferulic is an antioxidant that doubles up as a sunscreen.
I think SkinCeuticals makes the best vitamin C serum — everybody else just attempts to get close… If you feel that somebody does it so amazingly, you can only think two ways: you can make something better or you can copy it. I don’t copy and I can’t do better, so I use theirs. Skinceuticals C E Ferulic, $146, is the most fantastic product.
5. Favorite Body Lotion – Alba Botanica Natural Hawaiian Body Cream
It doesn’t have parabens [a preservative], so when buying, be careful that the moisturizer hasn’t gone bad. I always smell the lotion before I buy it and I use it up in a month
