Cardi B's Facialist Started a Skincare Line — and We Tried It First
"I see 800 people a week," Lisa Guidi, founder of NYC's Erase Spa, said. "When someone is getting naked on a table with me about to laser them, we build a bond. So, I've learned what people want in skin care."
Guidi, whose most famous clients include Cardi B, Serena Williams, and Victoria's Secret angels such as Lais Ribeiro and Megan Williams, helped bring the Oxygen Facial to the masses. (During the appointment, oxygen is used to boost collagen production, which helps to prevent against inflammation.) And even though her many clients all want different treatments, ranging from chemical peels to stretch mark removal, there's one thing they definitely don't want: acne.
"We live in a polluted city," Guidi said. "We're always stressed out. We're on the go, and we're travelling." Those factors can upset a complexion, so Guidi decided to launch Sken Skincare, a line of 18 items that all target specific areas of concern, from acne (wherever it may be) to hyperpigmentation to razor burn. "I wanted to make products for everyone — no matter if your skin colour, age, or genetics."
