How do cosmetologists and plastic surgeons take care of themselves? Do they trust organic cosmetics or are they exclusively using technological products? BeautyHack looked into the cosmetic bag of the surgeon Olga Shemonaeva and found out what a professional's beauty routine consists of.
Plastic surgeon, full member of the Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons of Russia (OPREH)
I love natural remedies and have no doubts about their effectiveness. At the same time, as a doctor, I constantly use proven professional cosmetics, especially when it comes to facial care.
Kiehl ' s Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Cream
I love this cream very much for its amazing smell and texture: soft, like whipped cream. It is perfectly absorbed and does not leave marks on the skin, while it nourishes it well, keeping it soft even in cold weather. I especially like the almond extract included in the cream. This is a natural anti-inflammatory component, so I can rest assured: my skin is protected.
Coconut oil 100%
For me it is a universal, and therefore the best tool. Coconut oil is ideal for dry and problem skin, for dry and brittle hair. I often use it for my hands, especially after long operations, when the skin dries up after gloves and antiseptics. The result of the action of coconut oil is visible immediately: dryness disappears instantly, the skin becomes smooth and elastic. And most importantly, I am always accompanied by the light aroma of summer, sea and sun, which are sorely lacking in winter.
Akileine hydro-protection foot balm
Both summer and winter foot skin requires protection and hydration, but conventional body creams often fail. Akileine hydro-protection foot balm helps me. Gives a wow effect: the skin of the feet becomes soft, the feeling of tightness disappears. The balm is perfectly absorbed and leaves no residue.
L ' Occitane Hand Cream
I love its slightly oily texture and pleasant aroma. It is very important for my work to constantly moisturize and nourish my hands. Small volume allows you to always carry the cream with you, even in the smallest purse.
Means for washing: Dermaquest C Infusion Cleanser
Very good cleanser: it does not dry out and moisturizes. Every time after use I feel lightness: as if the dirt accumulated during the day is leaving, and the skin begins to breathe.
The cream for face Acido Ialuronico Redenyal 0.2%
The composition includes hyaluronic acid in a low concentration, due to which it does not provoke morning edema when used before bedtime. The cream is saturated with amino acids and plant extracts. Thanks to him, I do not need any tonal and matting agents - an even complexion, no inflammation, softness and necessary skin hydration.
Dermaquest DermaClear Serum
Perfectly moisturizes, removes hyperkeratosis, opens and cleanses pores. I love this serum very much for its pleasant aroma and amazing results. It is felt that the product gives not just a cosmetic effect, but really cares.
Face concentrates: Arcaya
The ampoules contain only natural ingredients. I have not observed any side effects such as allergies or redness during the entire time of use. The Arcaya line contains concentrates for all skin types and for solving any problem. I use them all year round, since in winter the skin is dry, and in summer it is negatively affected by exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
Mary Kay Oil Eye Makeup Remover - free
I have tried many eye make-up removers, this is one of the softest, easily removes makeup (even long-lasting), does not leave a greasy film, does not cause irritation. Never leaves traces of mascara, eyeliner or shadows (when using other products, makeup residues are often visible along the lash line in the morning).
Eye cream Dr. Grandel nutri sensation
Cosmetics with a rich history, so I completely trust them. Based on natural ingredients - this is important to me. The skin of the eyelids is very thin and sensitive, requires special care, and I have not yet come across a worthy replacement for this cream.
