Fall Skincare Tips from the ‘Supermodels’ Facialist Ildi Pekar

This article first appeared on TME 11/10/16

We love when we get the opportunity to receive skincare tips from Ildi Pekar! With clients like Miranda Kerr, Lindsay Ellingson and Irina Shayk, Ildi is responsible for the faces of some of today’s most beautiful women … and rest assured that genes alone don’t keep these women looking flawless. So, who wouldn’t be over the moon when Ildi shares her secrets? We really luck out this time because along with Ildi’s top skincare tips, she’s shared her favorite Fall DIY Mask!

To kick off the transition to cooler weather skincare, Ildi points out that our diet is most important! During the summer we eat a lot of light foods including vegetables and fruits, which contain water so we are more hydrated. During the cooler months we feel a little more lethargic and it shows in your skin because we eat foods that are hot and heavy for comfort than light and refreshing during the summer months. This leads to a lack of hydration and that awful, uncomfortable dry skin.

How To Shift Your Skincare Routine:
  • Change to a milder cleanser
  • Avoid using harsh toners that can dry out your skin too much and cause irritation
  • Switch to a heavier moisturizer during the cooler months
  • This is the BEST time to get a Deep Cleansing Facial or peel; it keeps your skin soft and clean and helps treat the skin damage that occurred during the summer

How To Combat Breakouts:
  • A Deep Cleansing facial would keep your skin in check
  • Get your pores clean regularly to reduce white heads black heads and acne
  • Drink plenty of water or coconut water to keep your skin hydrated
  • Apply moisturizer twice daily to keep hydrated
  • Exfoliate your skin and increasing your fish oil intake will help as well

Ildi’s Favorite DIY Fall Beauty Mask:
  • 2/3 tbsp of organic honey 
  • 2/3 tbsp of plain organic yogurt

In a pot heat to room temperature. Spread thin layer on face neck and decollete. Leave on for 15/20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat skin dry.
