If we think of the natural-beauty world as a high school sports team, a few ingredients are definitely in the starting lineup. Anyone who’s as obsessed with skin-care formulas as we are has tried beloved natural ingredients like coconut oil and aloe. But dig a bit deeper, and you’ll learn that the earth’s orchards, farms, and forests are filled with skin-enriching natural ingredients just sitting on the sidelines and waiting to be transformed into a game-changing face mask. The formulators at Eminence Organic Skin Care are experts on the plant world around us, and they work with farmers in Hungary and around the globe to handpick lesser-known natural gems, like yam, rhubarb, and paprika peppers, harness their power, and create professional-grade products for both your favorite spa treatments and at-home skin-care routine. The brand uses the ingredients in their natural form, including seeds, pulps, and peels tapping into nature’s potential to take your skin-care game to the next level.
It all starts with an ingredient being harvested from a certified organic farm in Hungary or a partner farm elsewhere in the world. Each product is thoughtfully formulated with the most efficacious ingredients and prepared with care to maintain the nutrients of the plant. For every product sold, a tree is planted in a developing country; as of March 2019, that means Eminence Organics is responsible for planting over 10 million trees in 22 countries.
Because all 200-plus products are professional-grade, the brand is sold exclusively at spas and through verified online retailers. Eminence Organics approaches skin care as a 360-degree experience, which means a healthy routine involves in-spa visits with registered estheticians and daily home care. Visit the spa for the most high-level, professional treatments, then work together with your esthetician to create a daily routine for maintaining your skin at home.
Eminence Organics was founded by a family of estheticians, so it’s no surprise that the brand strongly believes in supplementing an at-home skin-care routine with regular visits to the spa. Its vast skin-care line includes a range that features even higher concentrations of active ingredients like lactic acid or fruit enzymes, which can only be used by licensed professionals.
Spa treatments are part of a holistic skin-care routine, but the way you treat your skin daily is even more essential to achieving your skin goals. After your next facial, invest in a few home-care products as recommended by your esthetician. The products you use each day should help maintain the benefits and keep your skin glowing even when you can’t make time to visit the spa. Since Eminence Organics products are made with all-natural, biodynamic, sustainable, cruelty-free, and organic (duh, it’s right there in the name!) ingredients, you’ll know that you’re getting the best at-home skin care.
It’s possible to find a daily routine that will address every skin type and skin concern, at any age. To get started, identify your skin type by taking the quick quiz below — then read on for an Eminence Organics routine customized to your skin’s particular needs. Bring your results to your favorite spa to help create a customized skin-care routine.
Now, turn your results into a custom skin-care routine.
If you answered mostly A’s: Dry Skin
Dry skin can mean you have fewer oil-producing glands on the face and body. It’s difficult for your skin to retain moisture, which can lead to dullness, flakes, and even some uncomfortable itching. If you have dry skin, your face may feel tight after cleansing or throughout the day. Look for products and treatments that focus on building up the skin’s moisture levels in order to help the skin feel nourished and plump. Talk to an esthetician at an authorized Eminence Organics partner spa about which luxurious spa treatment is right for you, plus which additional at-home products will help maintain your skin’s glow. Dry-skin sufferers may benefit from the Mangosteen Lactic Pro Peel 10%, a professional treatment that uses mangosteen superfruit to infuse antioxidants into the skin, while a gentle lactic acid both hydrates and exfoliates your complexion. Ask your esthetician about at-home products like the Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer, an ultra-rich cream that’s formulated to help heal any dry, flaky patches. Continue your moisture-focused regimen with Facial Recovery Oil, which contains olive oil, sage leaf extract, and ylang ylang and is formulated to nourish and soothe red, dry skin. Dry skin can benefit from occasional exfoliating to allow moisturizers to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. With the right combination of professional treatments with Eminence Organics products and at-home care, your skin will remain hydrated and happy.
If you answered mostly B’s: Combination Skin
Combination skin means your skin is oily in some areas (often the forehead, nose, and chin) and dry around your cheeks. You may have larger pores around your nose and invisible pores around the cheeks and jawline. You’ll need balancing, mattifying products that help even out the skin’s appearance. Talk to a skin-care professional about the Arctic Berry Peel and Peptide Illuminating System, a spa treatment that helps uncover radiant skin and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation left over from any blemishes or sun damage. Post-treatment, your specialist will recommend the perfect products to take home. Ask about the benefits of a balancing face wash, like the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser. Gentle enough for daily use but able to serve as a mattifying powerhouse, this cleanser is great to balance and wake up your skin. If you’re a fan of Hollywood-level skin, ask about celeb staple serum Bamboo Firming Fluid. No matter what your esthetician recommends, a regimen designed specifically for combination skin will help keep your skin on the A-list.
If you answered mostly C’s: Oily Skin
Oily skin often means overactive sebaceous glands that produce shiny pools of oil on your skin. You probably get more shiny as the day goes on, you may have visible pores, and skin can be more breakout-prone. It’s extra important for you to thoroughly cleanse skin without drying it out, which can lead to even more unwanted oil production. Talk to a specialist about salicylic acid, a rock star acne-fighter that helps treat breakouts. For advanced acne care, ask your esthetician about the Pro Salicylic Acid Peel 15%. This powerful peel will improve the appearance of acne, leaving the complexion looking clear, smooth, and radiant. Your specialist may also recommend a product like the Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser, which is packed with cooling, skin-mattifying ingredients, like yogurt and willow bark extract or the Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer, which uses soothing cucumber and tea tree oil, great at-home products to fight problem skin.
If you answered mostly D’s: Normal Skin
Normal skin generally has an even tone and balanced texture that is not dry or oily. Normal skin types likely don’t have to focus on skin concerns like acne or hyperpigmentation. Instead, you’ll get to focus your energy on maintaining the happy, healthy-looking complexion that you already have. A spa facial is still a great way to prevent potential skin concerns and enhance your glowing complexion. Talk to your esthetician about the Blueberry Detox Firming Peel, a professional-grade treatment that combines blueberry, raspberry and blackberry juices, as well as pineapple extract to refresh the skin. Your esthetician will recommend a set of at-home products to help maintain skin’s health and appearance. We especially love the Stone Crop Gel Wash, a refreshing gel cleanser. If your esthetician recommends exfoliating, try the rice-powder-based Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant to help absorb oil and buff away dead skin cells for a bright, radiant appearance. Trust us: Even normal skin types will benefit from a skin-care regimen, and your favorite facialist will help you pick out the best products.
Now that you’re armed with information about your skin type, head over to Eminence Organics to discover even more products that meet your specific needs, or visit an authorized spa partner for more recommendations from a licensed esthetician. We guarantee you’ll find a gorgeous (organic and sustainable!) garden’s worth of new, exciting products worthy of your 360-degree skin-care routine.
