6 Ways To Give Your Skin a Treat from Sarah Nicole Skincare

These beauty products will make you absolutely radiant.

Years ago, a smear of cold cream and pat of moisturizer could have constituted a skincare routine. But today, we are all artistes experimenting with elixirs to exfoliate, replenish, detox, tighten, and turn our blotchy façades into perfectly blank canvases. Consider the face mask: the application once reserved for slumber parties and spa visits is now regularly shared on social media. It might even be acceptable in broad daylight. “I’ll have one on while I’m walking my dog,” says Dallas esthetician Sarah Payne. “I have no shame.”

Dallas esthetician Sarah Payne recently left her longtime position at Hiatus Spa + Retreat to launch her own line of products, Sarah Nicole Skincare. Her initial drop includes a face cream, facial oil, and retinol serum gentle enough for daily use—a glow-inducing trio designed to suit even the most sensitive skin types. “I wanted to take what I was doing in the treatment room and put it into a bottle,” Payne says. She let us in on a few of her other skincare secrets.

“This whipped pink mask smells delicious while brightening and softening skin. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, too.”

“Lip masks are especially great before a night out when you need your lipstick to be perfection.”

“The eye area is delicate and prone to dehydration. This is a nourishing overnight treatment that can be used alone
or layered over your eye cream for extra oomph.”

“Blue tansy is one of the most amazing smelling mask ingredients. I can literally just sit and sniff the jar. This is a great at-home treatment that uses fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate.”

“Biologique Recherche is the epitome of cult French beauty. This mask is a splurge but totally worth every penny if you’re at your wits’ end finding a product to deep clean dull or oily skin or congested pores. Vivant has saved my face too many times to count. Fair warning: it’s smelly.”

Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant, $70 | Joanna Czech

“If you’re looking to switch up your typical clay mask routine, this is the way to go. It won’t dry out your skin, plus a blend of plant antioxidants and phytonutrients helps skin heal more quickly.”
