Last week, we mentioned Facile Skincare on Melrose as a top wellness hotpsot in LA these days. We can’t tell you how many in-the-know ladies have since tapped us to echo the sentiment.
Dr. Nancy Samolitis is one of our go-to dermatologists for skin health Q’s here on the site and her stunning new studio is a dream come true. Facile’s approach is natural, but meaningful — their treatments strike the perfect balance for those who want great skin, yet want to avoid the “over-worked” look some L.A. skincare pros have become infamous for.
This fall, Facile launched a long-awaited skincare line and you’ll be surprised to find her daily moisturizer is just twenty-five bucks. Here’s what you need to know…
Our Review: Facile Skincare Line
The whole concept of Dr. Nancy’s line is that skincare should be easy. The Facile team has worked with thousands of clients’ needs and the top skincare lines in the world. When they went to launch their own line, the goal was to provide powerful, goof-proof formulas with only the most effective ingredients.
The line is clean, clinical, conscious and sustainable, based on a core of four base products with an additional four targeted serums that are the real star of the show!
Facile Skincare Serums
These are the four serums of note. Some of the serums can be layered (like the deeply nourishing Dew You), others you should select carefully based on your skincare needs and stick to on their own…
Dew You Hyaluronic Acid Serum | Hyaluronic acid is a skincare superstar lately for a reason. This lightweight serum is designed to moisturize and noticeably lift skin underneath your other moisturizing layers. A must for winter.
Brighten Brightening Serum | Dr. Nancy has pulled in Tranexamic Acid, Azelaic Acid and Niacinamide here for gentle exfoliation that targets uneven skin tone and dullness. Also includes a dose of Vitamin C and E.
Destress Calming Serum | The anti-inflammatory serum. Designed for stressed, dehydrated skin, Destress Serum uses Vitamin C, Niacinamide and Ceramides to support skin barrier health, plus calming ingredients like Chamomile, Comfrey and Ashwagandha.
Reverse Anti-Aging Serum | This is Facile’s approach to Retinol. The famously anti-aging ingredient exfoliates and rebuilds healthier skin cells. Here Dr. Nancy has paired it with Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Chamomile, Comfrey, Vitamin E and C for a treatment that will keep skin balanced and supple.
