A native of Budapest, Ildi Pekar was raised in an area that’s world-renowned for its skincare treatments and one can say that Ildi was born to become a world-renowned esthetician and skin care expert. After spending over a decade practicing her craft in NYC, in 2007 Ildi took a leap and opened Ildi Pekar Skin Care located on Madison Avenue. And today, Ildi is sharing her best-kept secrets for amazing at-home skincare!

“DIY facials at home are so easy and fun. One of my favorites is the honey and avocado DIY facial for clean hydrated skin. I recommend doing this with raw/organic ingredients only. These little facials can give your skin the proper boost it requires to have great skin in between visit to your skin care expert,” shares Ildi.

Ildi’s At-Home Tips For Everyday Beauty Bothers:

Pillow Case Face - “Make sure you put on your moisturizer prior bed time. You need to hydrate your skin so it doesn’t dry out and cause wrinkles naturally. I recommend purchasing silk or satin pillowcases to prevent and avoid creases from forming during your night’s sleep. I also recommend sleeping on your back, which is difficult at first but this also helps avoid any markings on your skin from occurring. If you sleep on your face, it causes poor circulation, which leads up to more wrinkles. Give your skin the extra circulation it needs to avoid any creases. When you get up in the morning, wash your skin with tepid water and give face a massage for stimulation”.

DIY How to Reduce Puffy Eyes -
  1. Morning and night. Boil 1 cup of water, add 1 organic chamomile tea bag. Soak for 5 to 10 minutes. Take a cotton pad, wipe your eyes with the chamomile tea and take the tea bag and leave on each eye 5 minutes.       
  2. Take 2 teaspoons, put it in the freezer; use the back of the spoon and hold it under your eyes for 5 minutes. This should decrease the puffiness in the eyes.     
  3. Egg White Mask: Break two eggs; take only the egg white and use a tiny brush to then apply around your eye area. This you can do in the morning or before bed and helps reduce the puffiness. Ildi also recommends doing a 3-minute eye massage before and when you wake up as well. This gives your eyes the stimulation it loses during your sleep.       
  4. Cold milk: Cold milk is soothing. Soak 2 cotton pads in the cold milk. Leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Using this method, you’re draining unnecessary liquid and hydrating the eyes. The fatter in the milk, the better it is.       
  5. Cucumber and Mint Leaves are great for stimulation. Leave on like a mask for 15 to 20 minutes. Blend cucumber and Mint and soak a cotton ball in them. Wipe around your eyes and rinse after 20 minutes. Quick Tip: Cucumbers are hydrating and anti-inflammatory, take 2 cold slice of cucumber and put them on your eyes and lay down.  
  6. Drink plenty of water during the day and prior to sleeping. The puffiness could be a sign of dehydration.
