  • One Does Not Fit All

    The Laszlo Latest
    September 19, 2016

    Trying to find the perfect skincare routine can be absolutely dizzying – there are thousands of products out there! We’ve made it easy to find the ritual for you: try our new Skin Assessment, and find your ritual in minutes.

    Cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, mask…There are so many products everyone says you have to have and have to use: but that doesn’t mean that they’re right for you. And, just because a certain routine works for a Vogue editor or your friend (who has the time for a twelve step skincare ritual every night) doesn’t mean that it’s the right routine for you.

     

     

    LIFE CONSTENTLY CHANGES, SO WHY HASN’T YOUR RITUAL?

    Have you had the same skincare routine since 1993? If it works for you, keep it. But, if you have mixed reactions to products, it’s time for an update.

     

    Remember that as you age, and as stresses enter or leave your life your skin changes. It’s a good idea to re-assess your skin (and your skincare!) seasonally or after big life changes like a new job, cross country move, or pregnancy.

     

    Life changes don’t always mean having to scrap your routine entirely. Below are some quick fixes that keep your ritual in line for everything that life throws at you:

     

    SEASONAL CHANGES

    As the humidity vanishes and the leaves go from green to red, your skin can get dry and irritated.

    A seasonal change can mean updating your Double Cleanse routine or adding a richer moisturizer into the mix – to keep your #LaszloGlow.

     

    TRAVEL

    As summer winds down, the effects from your European vacation or time on the beach may still be visible on your face (fingers crossed you wore SPF!). Add a hydration boost to help, like our Hydra-Therapy Refresh Infusion, a lightweight, deeply hydrating booster serum for fall.

     

    AGE

    When you’re 40, your lifestyle looks a little different than it did at 22. It doesn’t matter if your age, taking a more personalized approach to your ritual means your skin will thank you. Entering a new life stage may mean adding an eye treatment to your ritual, like our number #1 eye cream, Transphuse Eye Refiner to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

     

    STRESS

    Stress feels like a regular feature of modern life. Between career and personal life, things can get crazy. If your complexion has taken on a sallow, dull tone– act fast. Layer on a hydrating gel sleep mask overnight to restore hydration, and wake up to a glowing complexion the next day.  Best part?  No downtime, simply apply before bed and wake up refreshed. 

  • The Power of Two

    The Laszlo Latest
    August 16, 2016

    Here at Erno Laszlo, we believe the best things come in pairs. See why we believe in the #PowerOfTwo.

    So what’s all the buzz about “two?” In today’s world, time is the ultimate luxury, and quickly rinsing your face at the end of the day is the easiest way to save time. But you’re actually losing time this way – skincare shortcuts have long-lasting, negative effects that you’ll spend more time fighting in the end. Think: breakouts, wrinkles, clogged pores…

    How do you get around that? A concern-led double cleansing routine with active ingredients that work at the cellular level. This is your road map to beautiful skin.

    We believe in four key concerns (Detoxifying, Calming, Firming, and Hydrating), so we designed cleansing routines around them.

    Find your Power of Two.

    Detoxifying Double Cleanse:

    This cleansing duo features our iconic Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar (it’s been a customer favorite since the 1970s)!

    Our new Detoxifying Cleansing Oil is the perfect pair to your Sea Mud Cleansing Bar. This oil includes ingredients like charcoal, grape seed oil and seawater.

    These ingredients work together to open up your pores, draw out impurities and combat the everyday buildup of toxins on your skin.

    Who is this for?

    – People with larger pores and pollutant build-up on skin.

    – Ideal for those who live in urban environments

    The result?

    Tighter pores and smooth, glowing skin.

    Soothing Double Cleanse:

    Our Sensitive Cleansing Oil and Bar are all about soothing and calming skin. They gently cleanse your skin and remove irritants while simultaneously delivering soothing ingredients.

    The Sensitive Cleansing Oil features almond oil and fatty acids to reduce and protect against inflammation and promote skin renewal.

    Our Sensitive Cleansing Bar has chamomile and green tea extract to support skin’s healthy glow and defend it from damaging free radicals. When combined, you get a deep cleanse without stripping your skin of its natural, healthy oils.

    Who is this for?

    – People with sensitive skin that is easily irritated or have rosacea.

    The result?

    Hydrating Double Cleanse:

    Get hydrated with our Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil and Phelityl Cleansing Bar. This duo delivers rich moisture to your skin as it cleanses.

    Our new Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil has avocado oil, vitamin B, and rosemary extract: these three ingredients work together to nourish and protect while plumping those fine lines and wrinkles that we’d all like to avoid.

    Plus, the Phelityl Cleansing Bar delivers a rich lather when combined with the Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil. Safflower seed oil and fatty acids balance your complexion by mimicking the same nourishing oils and pH balance that are naturally in skin. 

    Who is this for?

    – People who experience dry, tight and/or flaky skin or need an extra hydration boost.

    The result?

    A true #LaszloGlow featuring plump, hydrated skin.

    Shop All Hydrate & Nourish

     

    Firming Double Cleanse:

    Get that bounce. Our new Firmarine Cleansing Oil knows how to deliver.

    The oil’s Marine Complex penetrates pores and begins lifting and firming skin. The Firmarine Cleansing Bar delivers Spirulina Maxima, vitamin C, and E and shea butter to lift, protect, and soften skin.

    When these products are put together, you get a deeper cleanse. Plus, unique time-release technology works both day and night—lifting, smoothing and firming skin long after you’ve cleansed.

    Who is this for?

    – People who want an extra lift to their skin or are experiencing a decline in skin elasticity.

    The result?

    A smooth, lifted complexion.

  • Get to know our Lead Therapist, Judit G

    The Laszlo Latest
    July 29, 2016

    Need a facial treatment? No problem! Our Lead Esthetician, Judit Galambosi, has been our go-to facial and skincare expert for over 3 years. We caught up with her at The Institute at Erno Laszlo to talk all things skincare and discuss the importance of finding the right products for your skin.

    How did you come to NYC and the Erno Laszlo Institute? What’s your background in skincare? 

    I was born and raised in Hungary where I received my esthetics education 18 years ago. I then worked in London for 7 years, where I furthered my education and helped run a spa for 5 years. I joined the Erno Laszlo Institute as the Lead Therapist when a former client invited me to interview. I loved the Erno Laszlo approach to facial treatments, and I’ve been here for 3 years now.

     

    What’s your favorite part about working as a skincare expert?

    Making people feel better about themselves! I grew up with cystic acne, which made me very self-conscious. Regular facial treatments changed the condition of my skin for the better – which in turn helped me gain my confidence back. We all have something we would like to improve about our skin and I love embarking on that journey with my clients.

     

    What is the most common concern among people you meet?

    There are two concerns that people discuss with me the most: acne and anti-aging. Basically everyone I meet wants to have clear, radiant skin or asks how to slow-down or reverse the signs of aging.

     

    What do you notice first when meeting a new client?

    It all depends on the individual.  We begin with a thorough consultation before we start our treatments and while I am talking to the client I am already analyzing the condition of the skin. On a surface level you can easily notice the overall texture of the skin: this includes any blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, flakiness, excess oils, and overall skin health.

     

    What does a good skincare regimen look like?

    The proper at home ritual doesn’t have to be extensive to be effective. One has to start with a strong foundation, which is with a thorough double cleanse system.  This purifies and prepares the skin for better penetration of the products to follow. The next, most important step is finding a moisturizer which is most suitable for your skin’s needs. A moisturizer is going to nourish and protect your skin’s best assets. Lastly, an eye cream is essential because the under eye area is thinner than the rest of your skin and therefore requires special attention.  I always tell me to add a mask 3-4 times a week.  It’s not only relaxing, it truly will add a nice layer of hydration and glow to your complexion. 

     

    Why should people change up their routine morning and night?

     Your skin has different needs during the day and the night. In the morning one wants to focus on protection. During the day our skin is exposed to excess oil, make-up, dirt, bacteria, pollution and environmental elements. It is important to use products that will provide proper defense and help prevent skin damage. At night is when your skin repairs and rejuvenates. While we are asleep our bodies rest and in return have extra energy to repair itself. The focus at night should be on nourishing and hydrating the skin. It’s a great time to use serums for targeted concerns since the active ingredients are smaller on a molecular level allowing for more effective product penetration.

     

    What’s the importance of a double cleanse with an oil and cleansing bar?

     Our nourishing cleansing oil soothes and softens the skin while gently breaking up excess oil, make-up, impurities, and pollution without stripping the skin of its own moisture. When massaged together with our targeted cleansing bar it creates a rich cleansing mask that deeply cleanses the pores by emulsifying and removing impurities from the skin.

    When should people start taking their skincare ritual more seriously to avoid signs of aging? How important are facial treatments as a part of a good skincare regimen?

    Almost all of the fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, rougher skin texture we associate with aging are caused by sun damage. It’s never too early to start protecting and preventing the skin by applying sunscreen every day all year around, starting at childhood. The UV penetration can be equally strong all year round, even in the winter, make sure you are using SPF every day. The “official” aging process starts around the age of 25 so starting a bespoke and more targeted skin care routine that includes regularly scheduled facial treatments around that age is essential in preventing and slowing down visible signs of aging.

     

    How does diet play into a good skincare regimen?

    Poor nutrition can accelerate skin degeneration.  Just by eating the right foods we can begin to minimize or even prevent common skin problems. Skin is built from the inside out and feeding our body with proper nutrition and antioxidants can help maintain a healthy, radiant complexion. The best defense against free radical damage (breakdown of cell DNA/aging) is a diet which is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. A proper diet paired with topical application of products that contain essential vitamins and antioxidants can keep the appearance of your skin healthy and clear. For a healthier body and radiant skin make sure your diet is well balanced with fruits, vegetables, nuts and fish.

     

    What’s the most common misuse of skincare products do you see?

    Using products that are unsuitable for their skin type. Having a professional skin evaluation bridges the gap between beauty and science.  I have seen a lot of people try to "self-diagnose" and compensate for being overly oily by using very harsh cleansers that only further irritate the skin and exacerbate the problem without looking into root cause of their skin condition.  At The Institute, regardless of if you’re a walk-in or coming in for your regular facial treatment, we always conduct a thorough skin analysis on the client in order to recommend the correct products. With this knowledge, we can educate our client on the true condition of their skin and what products they can use to achieve the best results. Using a product just because it works for your friend isn’t really the best way to create your own skincare ritual.

     

    What is your favorite EL product to recommend to new clients?

    Our foundation for healthy skin and a great skincare routine is the double cleanse. The first product I recommend is always the best cleansing oil and soap duo to prepare the skin for better penetration of the products that to follow. The Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask is also a favorite of mine. It’s a lightweight gel mask packed with antioxidants that gives extra hydration to the skin overnight and let’s be honest, every one’s skin can use a nice hydrating boost!

     

     

     

  • How Do You Mask?

    The Laszlo Latest
    July 12, 2016

    Get the scoop on Erno Laszlo’s full line of masks (including our brand new Hydrogel Masks!) and find out how masking can help you treat your skin concerns.

    Here’s the skinny – masking is all the rage. You’ve probably seen people posting their masking selfies on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook… You name it. If all this masking has left you a little confused, we’ve compiled the ultimate masking guide to help you find the perfect mask for your skin.   


    Beyond The Selfie: The Sheet Mask

    Our White Marble Sheet Mask = instant gratification. Just apply your mask and indulge in some you time. Our suggestions? Meditation, reading, or maybe even binge watching Netflix. After 15-20 minutes, remove the mask for brighter, glowing skin. We like using this mask in the morning when we have a big day ahead, or after work to refresh before dinner with friends.


    In Perfect Form: The Modeling Mask

    Modeling Masks, like our Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment (aka our famous pink mask) are a must-have when prepping for any big event. Think: weddings, family reunions or holiday parties. When you apply our pink mask to the skin, it delivers intense moisture and calms the skin. This mask requires time to mix and apply to the skin. It is an extremely effective mask with real results but best used when you’re not rushing off to the next big thing. Some of our clients use this daily for a week or month to really hydrate, plump and renew their skin.

     

    The Perfect In-Between: The Hydrogel Mask

    When you crave the results of a modeling mask and only have time for a sheet mask, that’s where our NEW hydrogel comes in. It peels on and off like a sheet mask but the hydrogel gel material contours to the skin like a modeling mask. It is mess free and great at delivering a boost on the go. Both sheet masks and modeling masks require you to relax or they will get messy when you move around. With hydrogel, you can multi-task. The gel texture helps the mask stay put. So, take care of the vacuuming or cook dinner while you’re masking. You can always travel with a few. Since these masks are mess-free, toss one into your carry-on and  restore your skin in-flight when you get away this summer. Our hydrogel masks are designed to treat three specific skin concerns – delivering active ingredients to address how your skin is feeling.

     Exfoliate & Detox after a long weekend with friends.

     Soothe & Calm while in-flight to keep your skin hydrated and refreshed when you land.

     Firm & Lift when you need that extra boost to look your best.

     

    For The Long Haul: The Sleep Mask

    Sometimes life is too crazy for a 20 minute mask, that’s why we LOVE our easy, drama-free Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask. This is for those lazy nights where you know your skin needs hydration, but you don’t have time or energy for a full treatment. Simply apply to clean skin before bed and wake up to glowing, hydrated and calm skin. We recommend keeping this one on your nightstand and using it twice a week. It’s perfect after a long, stressful day.

  • OUR SKIN EXPERTS SHARE THEIR TIPS FOR GLOWING SUMMER SKIN

    The Laszlo Latest #YouOnlyYou
    June 21, 2016

    It’s summer, and we’re celebrating by sharing our best warm-weather skincare secrets. Get the inside scoop on how Lead Esthetician, Judit, Global Training Director, Hyang, and Senior Director of Digital, Catherine, care for their skin.

    Judit – Lead Esthetician at The Erno Laszlo Institute

    What is your must-have product?

    If I had to pick just one, I would choose the Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30. I was a sun worshiper in my youth, but now I would never leave the house without sun protection. It contains Spirulina maxima and seawater, so apart from the sun protection I am getting the nutritional benefit my skin needs to keep it firm and glowing.

    How do you adjust your ritual for summer?

    I always pay close attention to what my skin is telling me and adjust my routine accordingly. This adjustment could differ from year to year as our skin is constantly changing.  Recently I just swapped my Transphuse Line Refining Cream with the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask. It has a lightweight gel texture that keeps my skin well hydrated overnight.

    What’s your #1 skincare tip for flawless skin?

    Don’t skip your routine. No matter how tired you are or how late you get home, always follow your daily ritual. One night is all it takes to clog pores, cause breakouts and lose the glow of your skin.  As Erno Laszlo famously said: “Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle.”

    What is your favorite summer get away or activity?

    I love driving, but I don’t have a car in New York. When I can, I’ll rent a car and go on random road trips for a few days. My plan for this summer is to explore upstate New York.

     

    Hyang – Global Training Director

    What is your must-have product?

    I am a frequent air-traveler with a busy lifestyle and at the end of the day, my skin gets very oily and dehydrated, leaving my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. For years I’ve been looking for a perfectly balanced moisturizer that’s light and hydrating, and I’ve found it in the White Marble Translucence Cream. I love the luxurious, creamy texture and the refreshing hint of citrus. It’s not just a wonderful moisturizer, but a true skin brightener loaded with powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C and Chinese Plum. It keeps my skin hydrated and bright while I’m on the go.

    How do you adjust your ritual for summer?

    Extra sun exposure, heat and frequent cleansing makes my skin sensitive during the summer. Whenever my skin needs help, I put on the Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Mask to calm and soothe the skin. It is a fantastic rescue mask that works wonders in less than 20 minutes! It’s also an excellent mask to use after receiving treatments such as waxing and laser hair removal. In the summer, I’ll include more brightening products in my regimen. For example, the White Marble Treatment Bar keeps my skin cleansed, exfoliated and brightened, all in one.

    What’s your #1 skincare tip for flawless skin?                

    Honor your skin by nourishing it in two ways: topically and internally. Our skin is the first line of defense against environmental assaults. In order to defend our body, our skin needs constant nutrients, not only from topical products, but also from nutritious foods. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables is crucial for good health and good skin.

    What is your favorite summer get away or activity?

    Terranea Resort in California is one of my favorite places on earth. It’s built on a bluff, so it has a breathtaking oceanfront view. I love hiking in Terranea while admiring the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. If I’m lucky, I’ll get to do some dolphin watching! It’s a gorgeous place.

     

    Catherine – Senior Director of Ecommerce and Online Partnerships

    What is your must-have product?

    This is a toss-up between the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask and the Phormula 3-9 Eye Repair. I use Phormula 3-9 Eye Repair morning and night to keep my lids hydrated and looking refreshed on a daily basis. An esthetician once told me that eye cream is a must in your daily ritual from the time you are in your early 20’s, so I’m trying to make up for lost time! The Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask is great as I travel frequently, and I always apply it just before a long flight. I also use it bi-weekly when I’m at home to keep my skin hydrated, especially in the winter months.

    How do you adjust your ritual for summer?  

    I lighten up my routine. For skincare, I’ll swap out my serum/moisturizer/make-up routine for a serum/tinted moisturizer routine. I love Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum and always use it, regardless of season. I also like to switch from the hydrating double cleanse to using just the Phelityl Gel Cleanser. Of course, my moisturizer or tinted moisturizer must have an SPF, all year round.

    What’s your #1 skincare tip for flawless skin? 

    Don’t pick at blemishes! (I wish I was better at taking my own advice!)

    What is your favorite summer get away or activity?

    Road trips! I love taking off for the beach, going camping, or exploring a new city. Now that I live on the west coast, I’m looking forward to cruising the Pacific Coast Highway this summer.  Plus, I can travel by car with my Poodle/Bichon mix, Bernie. He’s the best navigator.

  • DAD - WE ❤ YOU

    The Laszlo Latest
    June 13, 2016

    So to celebrate, we’ve put together a few ideas for Father’s Day fun. We’re sharing some of our favorite spots in New York to treat your dad too, but we think as long as you do a little something to show the love, you’re golden.

    Let’s face it, dads are so much easier to please then moms. 

    SIMPLE AND FUN

    You know him well, and there are some things that never change. A Mets vs. Braves game might be just the ticket to make his day, or even a trip to his favorite museum.  The Met has a great rooftop!  Want to do something really random but fun? A great haircut from the one and only Rudy’s Barbershop is something he won’t soon forget.

    THE WAY TO ANY GUYS HEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH

    Nothing says love like good food and drink, and a nice steak dinner with dad seems pretty fail-proof. The Old Homestead Steakhouse serves up the biggest, most delicious steaks in the city in a classic, old New York setting. We also love the 21 Club, a former speakeasy with a great vibe. If you want to go really old school, Pete’s Tavern is a casual, vintage bar with great burgers, and it’s also been around since 1864. If you’re looking for something a little trendier, try The Lucky Bee, a farm-to table Asian restaurant with fabulous curries and cocktails. 

    NOT SO SIMPLE AND DEFINTELY UNIQUE

    He might scoff at the idea of a bespoke facial at the Erno Laszlo Institute, but we guarantee that the moment his treatment begins, he’ll forget all about those hesitations! Why not surprise him this year, and even indulge him with an Institute membership? He’ll be so glad you did.  And if a facial is out of the question, give him a new shaving kit.  Our iconic Sea Mud Soap + Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil creates a great lather that softens the hair for a close shave while continuing to protect the skin from a sharp blade. If you are in SoHo stop by the Institute and one of our brand ambassadors will give your dad (and you) a free sample to try and a moment of celebrating 1927, when the brand launched.  It’s a beautiful 10,000 square space, with a vintage glam vibe.  Fun to pop on over. 

    So how are you planning to treat Dad this year? Share your Father’s Day photo on Instagram and tag us! @ernolaszlonyc #LaszloGlow #welovedad

  • SUN PROTECTION PERFECTION

    The Laszlo Latest
    May 11, 2016

    We’ve all heard it a million times, but it bears repeating: always wear SPF! No matter the time of year, even if it’s cold and cloudy, the sun can damage your skin. Anytime you’re outdoors, you should plan on applying sunscreen to areas that will be exposed to the elements. If you’re not sure why, we’ve got a few good reasons:

    WRINKLES

    Yes, we will all acquire a few lines and wrinkles as the years pass, but if you use sunscreen regularly, you will notice a huge difference in how your skin ages. Ever witnessed the skin of a sun worshipper or someone who doesn’t use sunscreen? The proof is truly in the (sun-protective) pudding!

     

    DARK SPOTS

    Freckles are cute. Dark spots are not! When sun damage turns into brown spots on your face, hands and chest, you’re seeing the sun exposure and sunburns of your youth coming back to haunt you. And the older you get, the more this damage becomes apparent. But all is not lost! Using sunscreen now will protect from further damage, and lucky for all of us, there are powerful skincare products available to correct and lighten skin in amazing ways.

     

    DEHYDRATION

    Ah, dry skin. In addition to causing wrinkles and dark spots, the sun also dries skin out considerably. When skin is dehydrated, wrinkles are enhanced and we can look older than we are. A good sunscreen will not only protect your skin from the sun, but will also keep skin moisturized and flake-free with an emollient-rich formulation.

     

    SKIN CANCER

    What else to say on this one? Nobody wants cancer. By simply applying sunscreen every day, you’re protecting your skin from cancer in the best way possible. If there was ever a reason to wear sunscreen, this is it.

     

    OUR FAVORITE SPF PRODUCTS

    Firm & Lift: Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30

    Hydrate & Nourish: Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15

    Repair & Rejuvenate: R.E.M. Day Lotion SPF 30

    Purify & Control: Oil Control Day Lotion SPF 15

  • WE LOVE MOM: CELEBRATE HER IN NYC

    The Laszlo Latest
    April 28, 2016

    “Call your mother.” It’s something we hear all the time, and there’s a reason for that. Taking time on Mother’s Day to show the moms in our lives that we appreciate them is so important! Whether it’s your own mother, your mother-in-law, your best friend, or even yourself, this is the day we put aside to celebrate all the moms we know and love.

    Mother’s Day is one of our favorite holidays.  We have been sharing skincare through generations of mothers and daughters.  We hear over and over again the connection we are able to make on something so important and personal. 

    If you’re thinking of going beyond the usual Mother’s Day card and doing something special this year, we’ve got a few ideas to help you show your love in true New York style!

     

    SPA DAY

    For a truly indulgent way to say “I love you,” nothing compares to a day of beautifying. The Institute at Erno Laszlo offers a bespoke facial treatment tailored to your skin concerns.  It’s the first year we are offering this, book a session for mom and yourself and spend the day together, luxuriating your skin and slowing down your mind.   

     

    FABULOUS MEAL

    Nothing compares to a big celebration with family and friends. If you are creative (and daring) enough to cook a fabulous meal at home for a large group, this is the way to go. Of course, if you’re just too busy to host a gathering, brunch or dinner at the perfect restaurant is a great way to treat mom. Three of our favorite places in the city include Supper, Egg Shop and Buvette. Time to treat and be treated!

     

    ON A BUDGET

    While spa days and incredible meals are things we’d all love to enjoy and give, sometimes our finances nudge us in a different direction. It can be just as meaningful (if not more so), to simply spend time and express your love in a way that doesn’t involve spending a lot of money. Why not grab coffee or tea and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge together? There’s also the Highline and window shopping in the Meatpacking District. Just taking the time to be together can mean everything.

     

    JUST FOR YOU

    If you’re a mom, you know how precious your alone time is. Why not treat yourself to a day out, doing what you love most? Maybe its yoga, going to the gym or a SoulCycle class. Perhaps you love going to bookstores and getting lost in a new book. Or, maybe you just want a day at home to take a bath, do your favorite mask and snuggle up with a magazine. Do whatever you want – you deserve it!

     

    How are you planning to spend this Mother’s Day? Share a photo of you and your mom on Instagram and tag us using our handle @ernolaszlonyc and our brand hashtag #LaszloGlow.

     

  • SARAH KAUSS: FINDING BEAUTY IS S'WELL

    #YouOnlyYou
    April 13, 2016

    Our guest this week is the lovely Sarah Kauss, founder of S’well Bottle, a company dedicated to reducing plastic on the planet through their gorgeous collection of insulated water bottles. We talk about what she’s looking forward to in NYC this spring, her daily diet and exercise regimen, and her unwavering dedication to hydration, inside and out.

    Personal questions

    What are five things you love right now in New York?

    Union Square Farmer’s Market - I pass it every day to and from work and it’s so nice to walk around now that it’s not bitter cold outside

    The S’well Roof - We have a built out roof on our building that only S’well has access to and we’ve already started having team lunches and eating Pinkberry up there together

    The Whitney Museum - It’s such a beautiful museum to get lost in on a Saturday afternoon

    Central Park - As it gets warmer, I can’t help but want to spend more time there just wandering around and people watching.  

    Drinking Wine Outside - We’re inching closer and closer to Rosé season, but I might have put some in a S’well and started a little early

    Best advice you’ve ever received?

    The best advice I’ve received is that it’s ok to say ‘no’. People who know me well know that I love to say ‘yes’, so I try to make ‘no’ a positive word in my day-to-day interactions.


    Is there any health trend you love right now?

    Though we love doughnuts in the S’well office, we’re trying to switch over to some healthy snacks. We just started doing monthly orders from Nuts.com and I am loving it. Snacking on nuts is not only delicious, but has a ton of health benefits. Raw nuts are filled with protein, fiber, unsaturated fats, and important vitamins and minerals.


    Your favorite dish or something related to food?

    I’m currently loving Rhythm Superfoods- dried broccoli! It was in the gift bags at this year’s TED conference and I can’t get enough of it.

    How do you stay in shape?  Your favorite places/things to do to work out?

    One of the benefits for S’well employees is an Equinox membership and it quickly became one of my favorite places to workout. Whether it be spending some time on the elliptical or choosing from their range of classes, I know I’m always going to break a good sweat when I go.

     

    Skincare questions

    How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

    Hydrating of course! I try to drink as much water as I can throughout the day. I don’t go anywhere without making sure my S’well is filled.

    What’s your go to product if you feel your skin needs a quick pick me up?

    I love Erno Laszlo’s Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm deep moisturizer. It’s very light and repairs my skin while I sleep.

    What are your morning and/or evening beauty ritual?

    Washing my face is one of the very first things I do in the morning using Erno Laszlo’s Phelityl Cleansing bar. It helps wake me up before I have my first cup of coffee. After a long day, I love to come home and take off the day using the Sea Mud Cleansing Bar, and if I have the time, put a face mask on. Not only is great for my skin, but it’s good quiet time for myself.

    If you could tell your 20-year old self one thing as it relates skincare, what would it be?

    I would tell myself that it is so important it is to find a regimen that works for you. I used to love trying all sorts of different products, but once I started investing in my skincare and using just the products that were right for my skin, I noticed a difference in the overall appearance.

  • Wonder Workouts & Glowing Skin

    The Laszlo Latest
    April 04, 2016

    One of the best things you can do to get that youthful glow and defy the aging process is exercise. Whether it’s yoga, running, cycling or gym time, working out is a no-brainer when it comes to looking and feeling vibrant. But could your workout be affecting your skin negatively?

    We talked to a few of our fanatically fit co-workers to hear all about their favorite ways to sweat it out, and how they keep that Laszlo Glow post-workout.

     

    ERIN

    I do a ton of walking in New York, so when I actually workout, I focus on cardio workouts like Peloton Cycle. I just joined ClassPass and can’t wait to try new classes throughout the city! I tend to have sensitive skin that will break out easily. The combination of studio-provided towels and shared equipment doesn’t help. I bring the Sea Mud Detoxifying Cleansing Ritual Trio to wash and tone my face right after each class. This trio provides a deep cleanse but also calms my sensitive skin. I always follow with REM SPF30 before leaving the gym. It gives me the moisture I need, plus I never skimp on the sunscreen!

    I love FlyBarre classes. They give me great results and are incredibly challenging. I never leave for a class without Anti-Blemish Beta Wash in my bag. This cleanser is perfect for acne prone and oily skin! I love using it on those days I have an extra-tough workout and want to wash my face afterwards, or plan to go from my workout to meeting a friend. It makes my skin feel so refreshed, and enhances my post-workout glow.

     

    KRISTY

    For me, it’s hot yoga and Pilates all the way. I love Y7 Studio for yoga. It mixes traditional yoga with Hip Hop music! Gramercy Pilates always has a class available so it's my go to spot for a quick pick-me-up class. Both are so rejuvenating and make me feel really strong and lean without building too much muscle. The Pilates machines often make my hands dry, so I always have Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm in my workout bag. It’s so rich and heals dryness quickly. The heat from the yoga class can also dry my skin out. I make sure to replenish my skin’s glow with Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Bar post workout. For an extra boost I use Hydra-Therapy Sleep Mask. When I use this mask I always wakeup with plump, hydrated skin.
