Awards Season Style Guide: LA’s Top Skincare Experts
Awards Season is once again reigning down on Los Angeles. In our Celebeauty Series—leading up to the Academy Awards—we have your guide to getting the perfect red-carpet-ready look.
Showcasing stellar skin on the red carpet is just as important as your hair and gown. Luckily and a number of skin-care experts in LA cater not only to celebrities, but to you as well.
Ole Henriksen’s name isn’t cited on red carpets, but it should be, considering the amount of celebs who get beautified at Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa (Sunset Plaza, 8622 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 310.854.7700): Mark Wahlberg and Rooney Mara were recent guests. Facials are a must, as is the antiaging African Red Tea Spa Ritual. Also in West Hollywood is Sally Hershberger’s The Face Place (8701 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, 310.855.1150). It offers just one facial, featuring an antiaging formulation whose penetration is aided by galvanic current; the treatment has made a believer of Andrew Garfield.
Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts (8428 Melrose Place, L.A., 323.655.7546) has become a mecca for facial care. Actresses such as Debra Messing say Kate’s great for her signature treatment, the DermalQuench Therapy, a blend of hyaluronic serum and antioxidants applied under hyperbaric pressure. Another skin-care doyenne is Aida Thibiant, founder of Thibiant Beverly Hills (449 N. Cañon Drive, Beverly Hills, 310.278.7565), which has whipped famous mugs into shape since it opened nearly four decades ago. Treatments include the OxyFusion PurActive facial for blemish-prone skin.
