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.

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.

Fashion Week ‘Super Model Approved’ Skin Care Tips From Ildi Pekar

Ildi Pekar

With New York Fashion Week (NYFW) about to begin, get the “Model Approved Skin Tips” from the super models Facialist, Ildi Pekar, and her famous DIY Glow Facial … that anyone can do. Pekar, the skin guru behind Miranda Kerr, Irina Shayk and Lindsay Ellingson has three models approved tips to keeping your skin in tiptop shape after the summer and to survive Fashion Week! Ildi has even shared one of her favorite DIY Facial recipes for a fabulous at-home spa treatment!

Tip One: “Due to climate change, your skin is affected by the weather. Fall leads to colder weather, which makes your skin feel dryer. In the summer you should use a foamier and lighter cleanser, in the fall you can use a creamier cleanser.”

Tip Two: “In the fall there is a lack of moisture since there is no humidity, this is a great time to change your skin care routine and maybe double up on the moisture. Your number one product everyone needs in their arsenal this fall is a good moisturizer like the I. Pekar 100% raw honey moisturizer.”

Tip Three: “Fall is perfect to get deep cleansing facials to extract the buildup that was created during the summer months. You can also now do heavier peels in the fall, since your sun exposure will decrease which won’t make your skin so sensitive. It will improve the sun damage that was created over the summer.”

ILDI PEKAR DIY GLOW FACIAL 

Ingredients:  
  • 8 to 10 Leaves of Spinach
  • ½ Banana
  • A few drops of avocado oil

Blend lightly and spread it evenly on your face. Leave on for 30 minutes and then rinse with tepid water. Ildi's Glow Facial helps to rejuvenate skin cells!

DETOX! Although January 1 is usually a day to start detoxing, Pekar mentions it is never too early to get started. Her Cell Detox, an Infrared Cell Detox System utilizes 4-zone far Infrared technology that delivers slimming results that detoxify the body and convert fat into fatty acids that will be used for energy.

"Getting a detox can be beneficial for your body beyond just weight loss, if you are experiencing poor circulation, slow metabolism, breakouts, and fatigue infrared cell detox is powerful enough to penetrate the deeper layers of your body to deliver a lighter and slimmer result burning up to 1400 calories per session that stimulates the sweat glands to cleanse and detoxify the body of accumulated toxins and metabolic wastes." - Ildi Pekar

H20 Please! Staying hydrated boosts your health and skin complexion. Pekar recommends drinking water constantly “the key to healthy skin and body is hydration."

Work up a Sweat!  In order to be runway ready you need to be gym ready, or at least make your body THINK it has worked out, that’s where Ildi’s secret body weapon comes into play, Creative Fitness, an EMS Machine (Electro Muscular Stimulation)…You can tone any part of the body and you feel as though you just had a rigorous workout session. Training with EMS can be up to 18 times more effective than conventional weight training at gym.. Ildi recommends this treatment 2 – 3 times a week depending on your fitness goals. You can feel results within 1 – 3 sessions!

Say NO to Sugar! Not only does cutting sugar from your diet help with your skin (avoiding sweets can help you to avoid aging) taking out this sweet stuff can keep your weight in check,

"When your weight fluctuates, you are constantly stretching out your skin, which will affect its appearance," –Ildi Pekar.

Perfect Your Skin With DIY Tips From Ildi Pekar



We know that we’ve been telling you that spring will arrive, and we are well aware that it feels as if it never will. But, we promise that warm weather is on its way! In the words of George Harrison – “It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter” and we are optimistically preparing for the time when we can shed layers of clothing and show off something sleeveless and flowy.

To bring you the best tips to get yourself ready for Spring 2015, TME turned to famed NYC Facialist Ildi Pekar for the season’s best skin care tips. Ildi has perfected some of the prettiest faces out there like Miranda Kerr, so whom else would we turn too? A native of Budapest, Ildi 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.

As we stated above, Hungarians are known for their healing hands (Ildi Pekar has the best in the business!). In Hungry, 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. These techniques have been adopted by some of the best-known spas around the world, such as the Four Seasons Spa.

 A few methods include:
  • The Hungarian tapping treatment (tapotement) 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.
  • Hungarians love to soothe the skin and always incorporate different healing medicines for the skin. Instead of using water to steam the skin, they use chamomile. They also combine a massage technique during the steaming to enhance the effectiveness of the herb. This also helps with mental relaxation for the restless and stressful days. 
  • To naturally sanitize the skin and tighten pores, Hungarians use an electric stimulating machine. This helps to prevent breakouts and keep skin flawless. Ildi uses this technique for many of her top-quality clients!
Ildi shares her famed Hungarian Paprika Mask for a DIY approach!

Hungarian Paprika Mask:
  • 2 pinches of paprika powder
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ¼ of a banana


Mix it together and apply to skin for 10 minutes. (While you have that mask on, watch the video!) Rinse with cold water. What makes this makes so popular are the ingredients, which are natural stimulants that boost skin circulation and metabolism. With natural in mind, Ildi has just launched her own collection of natural skin care products -- the I.PEKAR collection that is made with 100% Raw.

DIY At Home Facials Tips from Skin Care Expert Ildi Pekar


Ildi Pekar of Ildi Pekar Skin Care NYC
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.

 Note: A special thank you to Ildi Pekar for sharing her expert skin care tips! Ildi has just introduced the Ildi Pekar Booster Facial, which is the only facial that features one of the top active anti-aging ingredients in the market today; Hyaluronic Acid. Ildi Pekar Skin Care is located at 315 Madison Avenue, Suite 2600, New York City.
