Celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas is hard to book. Her famously effective facials are popular with celebrities (beauties Julianne Moore and Rachel Weisz are Vargas girls) and in-the-know New Yorkers alike and must be booked weeks in advance. With a passion for natural solutions and organic skin care, her own line of natural products, and famously-effective treatments, like the triple-crown facial, it is no wonder. We couldn’t wait to share Joanna’s insights in this exclusive little green guide and are loving her ideas for keeping skin healthy and radiant in a natural way!
Joanna will be sharing more of her beauty insights with the Fashion Week weary at our Night of Green Beauty event September 4th in New York!
Green Goddess Guide: Joanna Vargas
Can’t travel without:
My Rejuvenating Serum. I use it mid-flight to keep my skin hydrated, so I’m fresh, even after a long plane ride.
In a pinch I…
Use ingredients from the kitchen as a mask. I like yogurt, honey and fruits!
Always in my evening clutch:
Bite Beauty has a lip primer that is amazing! It eliminates dryness and helps lip color go on without feathering.
My salon is near a Pret a Manger, and we like the chicken avocado salad. The avocado is great to hydrate skin from the inside, while the greens oxygenate and assist digestion.
I have Dr. Frank Lipman’s Recharge shake every morning. All those greens are awesome for the skin, for elasticity and oxygenation!
For ultra-glamorous effect:
I love a red lip.
Bite Beauty has gorgeous lip colors that are organic and a primer to hydrate lips before applying color.
My LED Light Bed.
Weirdest beauty habit:
My masks from kitchen recipes.
In the shower I keep:
My Exfoliating Mask for mini treatments.
On my bedside table:
I have a huge bottle of water. I get really dehydrated during the night and usually drink a ton of water!
Once a month I…
Get a Triple Crown Facial from one of my estheticians and a Power Peel. It’s my secret to keeping my skin fresh looking.
After a long-night or rough weekend…
I take extra vitamins and drink Dr. Frank Lipman’s Recharge shake. It’s the best thing to make you feel whole again.
The product that changed my skin:
My own Rejuvenating Serum. It really is the only thing that makes my skin feel hydrated.
Most treasured beauty tip:
I have a client who is in her seventies, but is a former supermodel. She told me once that confidence is beauty, and to always have flattering lighting in your bathroom.
For glowing skin…
I exfoliate twice a week and use my Daily Serum.
My go-to DIY:
Chamomile tea bags on my eyes when I’m puffy.
