The Kardashians are a polarizing subject, but regardless of your personal opinions, we can all agree they have great skin. While a very strict diet and a healthy lifestyle contribute to Kourtney Kardashian’s flawless complexion, so do her frequent trips to one of her trusted facialists, Candace Marino.
When we asked Marino for her number-one tip for finally achieving the younger-looking skin you’ve been after, her answer was simple: consistency and sticking with a routine. “This doesn’t mean getting married to one product and sticking with it if it doesn’t work for you, it means using a complete regimen both morning and night and doing it every single day,” she says.
Below, the three products she swears by for herself and her clients for their best skin yet.
What makes the serum a standout? Its ability to prevent the glycation process of the skin, which is caused by sugar breaking down proteins—particularly collagen and elastin—in the skin. “It not only prevents the glycation process, but strengthens the skin’s integrity, reduces lines and wrinkles and enhances firmness.”
The Brightening Master
“A product that I recommended to Kourtney is the iS Clinical Pro Heal Serum ($155),” says Marino. “It is a vitamin C serum that prevents damage from the sun and the environment to keep skin even-toned and healthy.” Marino calls the bottle “an insurance policy on our sunscreen,” thanks to its ability to fight free radicals and prevent the breakdown of collagen and hyperpigmentation that these environmental aggressors bring about. “Everyone needs to be on a form of vitamin C, and this one is a favorite of mine because of its healing and calming properties.”
The Never-Without Staple
Marino’s two biggest skin “no-nos” are not wearing SPF and sleeping in makeup. “I can’t tell you how many times a day someone tells me they wish they had been better with their sunscreen, and I can also tell you how many times I’ve heard someone say ‘I regret wearing my sunscreen.’ Zero!”
“Wearing sunscreen is not only important for keeping our skin looking young, it’s a huge part of staying healthy! A good SPF will not only tackle the UV rays, but will help to combat absorption of free radicals from the environment like pollution, and even blue light from our phones.”
