Today we show you our three favourite Dr. LeWinn's products of all time, and tell you a little bit more about the Doc behind the amazingly renowned skincare brand...
One of the world's most distinguished plastic surgeons (he did found the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Philadelphia, as well as own the title of Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Hershey Medical Centre Pennsylvania and the Director of Plastic Surgery Institute, Palm Springs USA!) Dr. LeWinn developed his own line of skincare based upon the same advice he'd given to his celeb clientel for years; how to improve the skin's appearance and give visably reduce the signs of ageing.
And despite his impressive career over in the states, the Dr. LeWinn story became a decidedly Aussie one thanks to his desire to make sure his products were the best on earth. He decided that in order to get the amazing results he wanted from his skincare line, he'd have to test it in the midst of the harshest climate on earth - here in Australia! And due to this ongoing testing, both here and in the states, so many of the Dr. LeWinn's products are the first to contain ingredients that others can only follow.
Three of our favourite products containing these innovative ingredients are also three products that will help your skin look smashing next time you want to look fresh faced 5 minutes after walking out the door (and up until 5am!) Here they are and how to use them...
One of my current fave prepping steps before applying makeup is making sure to softly buff and polish with an exfoliant. This helps to create a smoother surface for foundation application by gently unclogging pores and sweeping away dull and dead cells on the very surface of the skin. The key is to make sure your exfoliant is super gentle. This polishing gel gets the tick of approval, gently smoothing the skin whilst cleansing it too. Plus, it won't strip the skin so you don't loose any moisture along the way.
Next up, after completing the rest of your skincare routine, use a primer. Wait until about 5 minutes after smoothing on your moisturiser and gently swipe over the skin. The benefits? This Dr. LeWinn's primer works to control oil in the skin, as well as absorb it, all without drying. This means your base product will stay where you apply it for even longer than usual. It will also help to even out any blockages still present within the skin, so your foundation won't skin in, or make them even more obvious. Win! Be sure to apply then wait a few minutes before starting on your foundation - this will give it time to 'set' on the skin, for best results. Easy!
The final step? Your base product! But rather than choosing a heavy foundation, reach for one with a medium coverage. A thick foundation applied too heavily will only make you look older and less 'fresh' - even than if you went makeup free - true story! The Dr. LeWinn's Skin Perfect Foundation not only offers the perfect amount of coverage, it also helps to keep skin in tip top condition, containing stem cells from Apline Rose, peptide Matrixyl Synthe 6 and Tourmaline. In plain English? This trio help to maintain radiance and skin stimulation, which means glowier looking skin for you. Nice one. Plus, the inclusion of SPF 15 provides protection against the sun's harmful rays, preventing the recurrence of aging-related skin flaws - an essential skincare consern, no matter how old your drivers license says you are (yes, even if you are on your L's, sunscreen is important ladies!)
Considering how well this trio go together, it's no surprise they are all top of the bb list whilst we're preparing for the upcoming Silly Season. Do you exfoliate and use a primer before your foundation? Keen to give it a shot now? Perhaps your top Dr. LeWinn's prod is a different one? Let us know! - Lauren
