THE FACIALIST

 

MAMIE MCDONALD

McDonald tends to some very famous faces (Beyoncé, Chloë Sevigny, Eva Mendes, and Jay-Z) in her NYC salon, and searches out the best natural products for her supersensitive skin.

CLEANSER: Because I battle rosacea and eczema, I avoid perfumes and chemicals, and I don't like to strip my skin. M'Lis is one of the best organic chemical-free skincare lines I've found. I use its gentle (1) Wash Herbal Cleanser, $26, as a face and body wash.

SERUM: I don't like anything heavy on my face, especially at night because I want my skin to breathe. I interchange three iS Clinical serums, depending on how my skin is feeling: (2) Pro-Heal, $135, to treat inflammation; Hydra-Cool with hyaluronic acid for dehydration, $90; and Active Serum, $128, with glycolic, kojic, lactic, and salicylic acids, to exfoliate and boost radiance.

FACE-SAVER: M'Lis Tissue Repair Cream, $34, is my emergency go-to. It has vitamins A and E, aloe, collagen, and allantoin—an anti-inflammatory—to heal and repair dry, chapped skin, eczema, and burns, and to help minimize scar formation.

MAKEUP: I don't usually wear much makeup, but I do like (3) Iman Skin Tone Evener BB Créme SPF 15, $20, because it acts as a light moisturizer and has a sheer tint.

DIET: I avoid spicy foods that trigger my rosacea, and eat raw fruits, vegetables, and berries, all wonderful sources of antioxidants that contribute to great skin. I even make masks with fresh berries and yogurt. I also drink plenty of water to detoxify and hydrate.
