When it’s your father’s business to give celebrity clients amazing skin, you learn a thing or two about keeping you complexion glowing. Or so we imagined, when we asked Trish Alkaitis, daughter of cult skin care expert Dr. Alkaitis, to share a few of her inside beauty tips. Just as we expected, Trish dished out this gem: the ultimate beauty DIY. If you own any of Dr. Alkaitis’ masks this is the ultimate way to amp them up for ultimate spa-like luxury without leaving home.
“Our Cellular Repair Mask is amazing for the skin, but my favorite way to prepare the mask is actually done in Great Jones Spa in NYC and it’s called the ‘Berry-Whipped Facial’ anti-aging treatment. I have to credit the spa director, Karen Terranova, who invented this mask combination! When we all tried it, we fell in love instantly. It is so luxurious, fluffy and delicious (beware, keep your animals away from your face because they will try to lick this off you!).”
DIY Berry-Whipped Mask Treatment
- One tablespoon of Cellular Repair Mask (ingredients: organic raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, oat buds, grapes, strawberry and bilberry!)
- One tablespoon of raw organic honey
- 2-3 pumps of Dr. Alkaitis Night Crème
- 1-2 drops of Dr. Alkaitis Nourishing Treatment Oil
Blend all the ingredients well into a small bowl and apply to your face, neck and décolleté. This mask may remain on skin up to 20 minutes and should not dry out.
You can either take a shower – which will help keep the mask moist – or you can relax in the tub and tap warm water into your skin as the mask. After 20 minutes, rinse and blot your skin dry. Follow with Dr. Alkaitis Day or Night Crème (which will give your skin a beautiful sheen).
