The 5 Best Anti-Aging Products You Can Shop, According to Emma Roberts’s Esthetician
Most of us don’t have access to the facialists and dermatologists that celebrities use to achieve perfectly radiant skin, but thankfully there are ways to achieve (and maintain) an A-list-worthy fresh-faced glow from the comfort of your own home. To find out how, we talked to celeb-loved esthetician and owner of Le Jolie Medi Spa, Sharona Rafaeloff.
Sharona, whose clients include Emma Roberts, Elsa Hosk, and Lisa Rinna, says taking care of your skin at home is just as important as getting regular facials. Along with recommending that you cleanse your skin both in the morning and at nighttime, she also suggests using products that feature powerful anti-aging ingredients such as peptides, stem cells, vitamin C, retinol, and hyaluronic acid.
Her biggest at-home skincare tip? “Always apply your serums before your creams, and don’t forget to apply upwards” to help prevent wrinkles and sagging skin from forming.
Beyond these tidbits of advice, the Hollywood facialist also shared with us a list of the exact anti-aging skincare products she always uses and recommends to her clients. From hydrating serums to fast-acting eye creams, keep reading to shop all five of her skincare essentials.
