Getting serious about glowing skin entails being constant about your skincare staples: keep your cleanser gentle to remove makeup and impurities, use a toner to brighten and hydrate, and add a moisturizer that’s light but effective for that dewy look. Real quick: do you keep your products consistent or do you feel the need to switch them up? #SkinbyShani

SPF: Apply, Re-apply, Repeat 🔄 This should be your EVERY DAY routine when it comes to sunscreen!! It's a myth that you only need to re-apply if you're out in direct sunlight (although, it's extra important if you are!). Even if I'm in my studio all day, I re-apply 1- 2 times using my go-to @supergoop sunscreen. Are you up on your SPF game!? Raise your hand 🙋🏽‍♀️ if you apply & re-apply on a daily basis! #SkinbyShani

Masking with these two beauties, who also happen to be the new estheticians in my studio! The ultra-hydrating Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask by @DrDennisGross is amazing at adding hydration back into your skin. This two-step face treatment is loaded with humectants to seal in hydration, while algae and calcium complex draw heat to cool and calm the skin. We ALL love this mask since it revives dull, dry, and dehydrated skin, and smooths the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture for skin that looks firm, supple, and dewy.

Holding up my fountain of youth. There's a lot of conflicting information about retinol (in general) so for those who don't know: retinol is a form of vitamin A, which is an ingredient that promotes skin renewal and boosts collagen production, which leads to plumper/firmer skin. The most prominent benefits of retinol is that it helps decrease the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles but here's the thing- some retinol's can be super harsh on your skin so I created Texture Reform for those with sensitive skin! If you have any general questions about retinol, leave them below! #SkinbyShani

Today’s Mask is dedicated to your LIPS. Seriously obsessed with this @henneorganics lip mask, with ingredients like evening primrose to help soothe lips. It's perfect for those summer days after the beach or the pool when you need something hydrating and restoring on your lips. I feel like lip masks are so underrated but I swear, once you do one you won't be able to live without it. Who’s masking today? 🙌🏽 #SkinbyShani

Hyaluronic acid has been getting a lot of hype lately, and its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues plump and moist. One of my favorite hyaluronic acid serums is Hydra-Cool by @iclinical. Not only is it hydrating, it also calms the skin, specially when you've gotten too much sun (me post vacay!). Who else uses hyaluronic acid in their routine? #SkinbyShani

shanidarden

Good bye, vacation 🤘 I’m so grateful for an amazing time surrounded by friends and family. I’m so thankful for these memories. Although it’s never easy to leave paradise, I’m excited to be going back to a job that I love so much. ‘Til next year! ☀️

Although Sunday’s are my mask day, my skin needed some extra love after a week of sun exposure and surviving the heat on vacation. I stay in the shade and use a lot of SPF, but my skin still needs a boost of hydration! Today I’m doing a yogurt mask to calm the skin and add a little extra hydration. Yes, it’s totally DIY and something you can do at home or vacation anytime. As a bonus, it also contains my favorite, lactic acid, to gently exfoliate and brighten. Anyone else tried this? Drop your fave DIY masks below! #SkinByShani

Even with SPF, the heat from being outdoors can trigger inflammation which can increase melanin activity (hello, hyperpigmentation!). So even though you may be covered in sunscreen,🧴protected by a visor, and even sitting in the shade, it’s so important to keep your skin cool. While on vacay, I always bring my portable fan - it may look extra, but it keeps my hyperpigmentation at bay. Who else does this - or will start doing this - on vacation?! ☀️#SkinbyShani

shanidarden

Officially on Vacation Mode ✨ That means hat & sunglasses on, taking shade, and SPF reapplied every hour🧴(tap to shop my fave SPFs that will keep you aging backwards!) ☀️ #SkinbyShani

What are your toiletry bag essentials? You’re looking at mine (not pictured: sunscreen + retinol), but I want to know which products make it into your top three. For me, I know that I couldn't live without these 3 products and here's why: my Daily Cleansing Serum is my go-to for a gentle cleanse that removes all of my makeup and impurities, my Toning Essence is great for hydrating my skin while also supporting its' elasticity & my Daily Oil-free Moisturizer naturally attracts moisture to my skin so I always get that dewy look after applying. Now, it’s your turn. Drop your top 3 below! #SkinbyShani

Micro-current Mondays 🙌🏽 Obsessed with this treatment because it's a triple threat: it lifts, contours, and tightens your face, giving you a super youthful glow. I may be turning a year older this week, but these gloves are going to keep me young forever 😆 Are there any skincare treatments or products you swear by? Share them below! #SkinbyShani

Currently in *recharge mode* as I head into my birthday week. I'm winding down with this C + Collagen Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask by @drdennisgross. Raise your hand 🙋🏽‍♀️if you're masking today and tell me which one you're using! #SkinbyShani

When I first started out, my main goal was to be working as an esthetician. Fast forward ten years, and my dream has expanded in ways I never thought possible. I have made it a mission of mine to help people transform their skin and in the process, achieve the confidence they always wanted. So many of us want to become our best selves, and there is NO SHAME if a small part of that means having a clear complexion. I want that for each and every one of you and seeing you all walk out of my studio glowing brings me so much happiness. Now tell me, in what ways can I deliver more results to you? Drop a comment with what you’re dying to know, from skin tips I should cover to product advice. I’m here for you. #SkinbyShani #AppreciationPost #Emotions

Rules of Skincare: ⁣ ✔️ Make sure your cleanser is gentle yet effective so it’s not abrasive on skin⁣ ✔️ Wear SPF by day and reapply every 2 hours ⁣ ✔️ If you invest in one product, invest in serums because they have the highest concentration of active ingredients ⁣ ✔️ To combat aging, wear Retinol at night⁣ ✔️ Always exfoliate 1-2 times per week depending on skin type to remove the top layer of dead skin cells ⁣ What are your favorite skincare rules to live by? #SkinbyShani

#WCW goes out to @chrisellelim looking gorgeous in my new studio. I did a little micro-current magic on her and she left glowing. Micro-current is truly #betterthanbotox, who can agree? 🙋🏽‍♀️ #SkinbyShani

Oh you know, just over here casually applying one of my favorite chemical exfoliants 👋🏻 I honestly love a good chemical exfoliant- especially one that's easy to do at home. These @drdennisgross Alpha-Beta peels are meant to get rid of dead cells on the surface of your skin to keep your skin bright and glowing. Removing the top layer of dead cells also allows products to penetrate into the skin so that you can get the best possible results. I recommend starting by exfoliating 1-2 times per week but if you're concerned at all or still have questions, drop them in the comments below! #SkinbyShani

Morning meetings 💭 Loved spending time with @teravaldez,  the owner of @mynuface. You all know how obsessed I am with micro current procedures and I’ve been using the NuFACE handheld device for YEARS. Micro current facials and toning devices are basically like a workout for your face- they effectively lift, tone, and tighten your skin to give you a more radiant, youthful appearance… which is always the goal 💁🏻‍♀️ Check my stories for more detail & for the exact NuFACE device I use. #SkinByShani

Sunday’s agenda: ➀ Make plans ➁ Cancel plans ➂ Stay in & mask 🧖🏽‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ because what else would I be doing on a Sunday!? Went with the @tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask to nourish my skin with an extra dose of vitamin E so that I can start the week off glowing ✨Anyone else with me? #SkinbyShani

After a long weekend spent in the heat, my skin was craving an ultra hydrating mask. The mask I’m wearing is 👉🏽 @drdennisgross Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask. The active ingredients, including medical grade marine algae, help to deeply hydrate, cool, and visibly plump the skin. After 15 mins, the mask simply lifts and wipes away with no need for rinsing! Tell me who’s a fan of this mask or tell me if you’re dying to try it! #SkinByShani

*My face when I see people laying out in the sun without shade or sunscreen* 🙈😆 How do you plan to protect yourself from the sun while heading away on vacay? #SkinbyShani

shanidarden

Same same, but different! Same same in the way that both the Retinol Reform and the Texture Reform are retinol-based products that will deliver amazing anti-aging effects 🙌🏽Here’s where their differences come into play though: Retinol Reform is formulated with Retinol and I recommend that my clients start by using it 1-2 times a week to allow their skin time to acclimate & then go from there. Texture Reform is formulated with Retinyl Palmitate, which is gentler than Retinol, and was created for those with more sensitive skin. Whichever one you use, use only at night (think: spf by day, retinol by night). Any questions? Drop 👇🏻 #SkinbyShani

It’s #mositurizingmonday over here so let’s take a sec to talk about 3 products you can incorporate into your skincare routine to make sure you’re skin is as dewy as possible: ❶ my Daily Oil-Free Moisturizer is the best light-weight Moisturizer that you’ll love, especially through summer ❷ @isclinical Reparative Moisture Emulsion: a super hydrating moisturizer for those in need of extra hydration ❸ @drnigmatalib NO 1 Serum: this A-grade hyaluronic acid will give your skin the deep hydration it needs.

On Sundays, we mask...especially when our eyes are tired from a long week and in need of a refresh. I’m hydrating today with Baggage Claim Gold Eye Maks by @wander_beauty, because I’m not taking ANY baggage into the new week (especially under eye baggage). Drop a 🙌 if you feel me! #SkinByShani

I don’t know who needs to hear this but, there is a right & wrong way to cleanse your skin! It all starts with the right cleanser- make sure you have a gentle cleanser (like my daily cleansing serum with oat bran extract) to get rid of makeup & impurities. Wash with lukewarm water & pat dry. Apply your toner (let dry) then apply your eye cream & serum (let dry). Apply a hydrating moisturizer and if it’s daytime, apply your sunscreen. See my stories if you want product recs! #SkinbyShani

It’s in those quiet, peaceful mornings in my new space where I feel so grateful to be doing what I’m doing. But I want to know, how many of you out there are estheticians, beauty brand owners, or just skincare obsessed? I love connecting with you all so LMK in the comments below! #SkinByShani

If I could choose 3 products that are a non-negotiable for your morning routine, it would be ✔️ a gentle Cleanser ✔️ a Vitamin C Serum and ✔️ SPF. Investing in these products will keep your skin glowing all through the summer months. Tap products to shop my personal faves. These are the EXACT products I use on my skin every single day 👆🏽 #SkinByShani

For all my mask lovers out there, if you’re looking for a multi-tasking mask that removes impurities, try @Garnierusa’s Skinactive Black Peel-Off Mask with Charcoal. Here’s how to use it: I love to apply it to concentrated problem areas, such as the t-zone, the chin, or the nose-only. This peel off mask dries in 10 minutes and reveals impurities that dull the skin while controlling new sebum & pore-cloggers from forming. Who’s a fan of peel off masks? #SkinByShani

The Deesse Mask is FINALLY back in stock, and it’s new and improved! I start EVERY 👏🏽 SINGLE 👏🏽 DAY 👏🏽 with 20 mins in my Dessee Mask. I love LED light so much for anti-aging & acne, because it truly makes your skin look flawless. Who’s ready to age in reverse with me? Drop your Dessee questions in the comments below! ⚡️ #SkinbyShani

On Sundays, we mask! Today I tried a new mask called Find Clarity Purifying Mask by @versed. This is a pore-clearing mask made with two types of clay and two types of charcoal to detoxify (and not dry out) your skin. You’ll love this mask because @versed was designed by two of my favorite skin care junkies @katherinepower and @hillarykerr. Who’s given this new line a try? #SkinByShani

As summer temperatures soar, you want to keep skin hydrated! My moisturizer is perfect for summer months since it’s suited for normal to oily skin with an ultra light-weight formula that will combat dryness without the feeling of a “heavy” moisturizer.

TGIF ✨ After a long week, don't forget to get rid of excess oil, make up, and pore-clogging debris with my Daily Cleansing Serum. Harsh foaming cleansers are way too drying for the skin. My cleanser has Oat Bran Extract to repair the skin’s barrier against future moisture loss. What are your main concerns when it comes to cleansers? Drop your q's below! #SkinbyShani

When I started out, my dream was simple: to be an esthetician. 10 years later, as I have changed and learned and seen the potential of growth not just in my life but through my clients, my dream has expanded into a MISSION and that is to help as many people as possible achieve confidence to be who they truly are through having incredible skin. I’ve seen how it changes not just the way people look but how they FEEL. I want that for each and every one of you and I’m dedicating my life to it and I’ve never been happier. Whatever your mission is today, KEEP GOING. KEEP DREAMING. Be the person who just GOES FOR IT. #SkinByShani
