I Got Rid of My Acne

A few years ago, 34-year-old model Summer started noticing consistent breakouts on her forehead. She tried everything from prescription-strength medicine to Accutane, which did little to improve her adult acne. Summer was getting facials on a weekly basis (they weren’t helping much either) and was willing to do just about anything to get my acne under control. We enlisted celebrity aesthetician J’ai Lone to clear and soothe Summer’s upset, broken-out skin.

The First Steps
Summer:  I was at J’ai’s office every week in the beginning for cleansing facials, masks, peels and extraction with steam. She always tailored the treatments to how my skin was reacting at that given time.
Ja’i: I wanted to get her skin in balance so I used a lot of cooling products on her like gentle cleansers, a balancing serum, a zinc and sulfur mask and my Balancing Scrub ($40), as well as peels and probiotics.

The Energy Element
Summer: When I first started seeing J’ai she explained to me that there was a relationship between the skin’s energy and what it reflects on the outside. Mine was really off balance.
J’ai: One of my philosophies is that breakouts can arise from too much heat and energy in the skin. When that happens, it needs to be calmed. Icing for five to 10 minutes per day is helpful. And, don’t use a lot of water on your face either.

Makeover Maintenance
Summer: I see J’ai for monthly facials. I’m diligent about caring for my skin and cleanse with her Balancing Scrub (sometimes I use it with an at-home skin-care brush) and antioxidant pads. I’ve finally found a routine that my skin likes, so there’s no need to veer off this path. My skin is clear, glowing, healthy and beautiful. And my breakouts have virtually stopped.
J’ai: Since transforming her skin, I treat Summer with oxygen facials, mandelic acid peels, Silk Peel, glycolic and salicylic acids and LED depending on what her skin needs.”
