Winter Skin Re-Fresh Tips From Celebrity Facialist Ildi Pekar

You’ve probably read about Ildi Pekar more than once here on The Makeup Examiner and that’s because this is a woman who knows how to make our skin glow! With a client roster of some of the world’s best-known faces -- think Miranda Kerr, Irina Shayk and Lindsay Ellingson -- it’s obvious that Ildi is the go-to skincare guru! And, what’s more is that she offers up DIY tips to get our skin glowy… even during the bitter cold winter!

Team TME snagged the how-to for the Hungarian Facial Tapping Method and the recipe for Ildi Pekar’s “Famous” Hungarian Paprika Mask! So, What’s better than taking some “me time” on a cold and miserable winter afternoon?

Ildi explains, “Hungarians are known for their healing hands. They are taught special techniques and massages for a healing touch on your skin and body, which is why they prefer to apply medicine and products by hand rather than a brush applicator. The Hungarian tapping treatment on the skin is best known for an all-natural lifting effect. It also helps to drain out toxins and reduce puffiness in the skin creating a pleasant appearance.”

Hungarian Facial Tapping Method:
  • Start by using 8 fingers (Not your thumbs).
  • Make sure you are using the tips of your fingers (skin only).
  • Start from jaw line and go around the eye area and use less pressure.
  • Close your eyes when you are using the tapping method.
  • Create a nice rhythm and even hum if you need to connect to a deeper place.

Tapping - Tap upwards and go in circular motions from the bottom of the face to the top and keep repeating. The Hungarian Facial Tapping Method can be done before or after a mask. We prefer before so that we can completely relax during “mask” time.

Ildi Pekar “Famous” Hungarian Paprika Mask: 
  • 2 pinches of paprika powder
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ¼ of a banana

Mix it together and apply to skin. Leave on face and neck for 15 minutes. Rinse with cold water. In Hungary, the most famous mask is the paprika mask. The mask is created with natural stimulants to boost skin circulation and metabolism. In Hungary, they utilize different herbs for different skin care issues to help heal it organically.
