In 2013, Yen Reis set out to change the way people cared for their skin, with the launch of Skin Laundry, a skin-care clinic known for its signature 15-Minute Laser & Light Facial. And with a demand for clinic-esque results at home, Reis and team formulated a line of skin-care products, which Reis says perfectly complements her facials and keeps her skin vibrant.

“Even though my philosophy has always been ‘less is more,’ and my regimen is very minimal, I have always been very interested in skin care," says Reis. "I never liked the idea of wearing a lot of makeup, so I learned early on that, to avoid that, I really needed to look after my skin and protect it with sunscreen.” Below, she shares her day and night regimens.

“I start every day with Skin Laundry Gentle Foaming Face Wash ($20, which we designed for sensitive skin because it isn’t drying. I believe SPF is a must-have—just like wearing a seat belt!—so I use Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50 ($32), well, every day! And because I’m always traveling to visit our global locations, I can’t live without Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm ($27) and Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($24)—both are perfect while I’m on the go!”

“After cleansing again with Skin Laundry Gentle Face Wash, I apply Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream ($60)—the fermented green tea in it helps combat any environmental stressors on my skin. And whenever my skin feels dry or needs a little extra boost, I use a Skin Laundry Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask ($10) before bed. I also stash some in my suitcase when I travel because they’re super light and easy to put on—even on the plane!”
