Say Hello to Matthew Miller- COSMEDIX Advising Aesthetician Board Member

Excuse us while we continue relishing in the exciting launch that is COSMEDIX Advising Aesthetician Board—perhaps you’ve heard of it? This educational board is a hot topic for more than a few good reasons, but most notably for its mission to educate businesses and consumers on COSMEDIX clean, clinical and luxurious skin care products. Of course, the board wouldn’t be complete without expert aestheticians, Kasey Boone and Matthew Miller, who lead the way with informative, digital takeovers and exclusive product knowledge. Last week, COSMEDIX helped get you well-acquainted with L.A. spa owner Kasey Boone, so now it’s time to do the same with bi-coastal, skin care maven Matthew Miller.

If well-rounded experience perfects a craft, then it’s safe to say Matthew Miller definitely knows a thing or two about skin care! After receiving his Esthetics certificate from the Aveda Institute in Chapel Hill, Matthew spent seven years building his skillset in retail, management, education and clinical services. Following years of observing “cookie cutter” treatments and factory line beauty, Matthew was inspired to launch his own skincare clinic, Matthew Miller Skin. The famed skincare clinic—now located in Beverly Hills and NYC—focuses on personalized treatments centered on in-depth, skincare analysis and education, and it offers a vast array of Matthew’s specialties, including facials and sugaring hair removal.

To ensure his clients’ needs are treated as a top priority, Matthew turns to clean, trusted skin care brands like COSMEDIX to help cater to different skin types, tones, and concerns. If you’re on the market for a radiant, healthy-looking complexion, check out Matthew Miller’s top recommended products:

SURGE| Hyaluronic Acid Booster

A complexion-quenching, hyaluronic acid booster formulated with Niacinamide and Kiwi Fruit Water to help visibly plump the look of fine lines while revitalizing the look of skin, improving texture and promoting elasticity.

Matthew’s Mix: “ In the morning, I love to mix Surge with Cell I.D. and Pure C Mixing Crystals—this way I’m getting my antioxidants, my peptides and my Vitamin C. It’s my address-all concoction!”

MICRO| Defense Microbiome Sheet Mask

COSMEDIX latest launch, Micro is a deeply hydrating, peel-off face mask drenched in a rich, prebiotic serum. With the help of Coconut, Almond Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate, this rejuvenating face mask helps reduce the look of fine lines, quench dry skin, and helps strengthen skin’s natural defense for a softer, smoother-looking complexion.

Matthew’s Tip: Pair this face mask with a pampering skincare tool, like COSMEDIX Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller or Facial Massage Roller. Both of these skin care products work to help revitalize the skin and gently massage serums and/or moisturizers into the skin for increased absorption.

CELL I.D.| Nutritive Defense Serum

A nourishing serum that helps boost the skin’s natural rejuvenation process by delivering powerful antioxidants and hydration and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots.

Matthew Miller’s Take: “You can’t go wrong with this serum! My skin always looks so healthy and plump after using Cell I.D. It is a MUST HAVE in your anti-aging arsenal”

Meet COSMEDIX Newest Bestie, Kasey Boone

The first month of 2020 has come and gone, and the start of the new year has already brought some exciting things to the COSMEDIX brand! In January, we announced the launch of our Advising Aesthetician Board—an educational board composed of knowledgeable COSMEDIX partners who help further business and consumer understanding of our products—along with the board’s first advising members, Kasey Boone and Matthew Miller. To get you on a first name basis with these two, champion-brand estheticians, we’re shining a spotlight on their background and favorite products, starting with spa owner Kasey Boone!

Dancer turned skin-guru, Kasey Boone has spent the last decade taking the beauty industry by storm! Entering the industry at the age of 18, in just five short years she was in her early-twenties and the owner of her first business, GLOW Skincare. Since its launch, GLOW has expanded into a full-service studio offering custom facials, peels, hydro dermabrasion, full-body waxing and so much more!

Drenched in crisp white walls and posh-pink accents, one of COSMEDIX favorite things about Kasey’s tranquil studio is that it’s stock full of our award-winning products. Kasey is a huge fan of pairing her signature Cold Roller with a wide variety of our masks, including Micro Microbiome Defense Mask and Pure Enzymes.

“My top product to use with the Cold Roller for winter and spring is the COSMEDIX Micro Microbiome Defense Sheet Mask,” says Boone. “I love using the roller over the mask for that extra boost of product absorption or after the mask is removed to help massage in the remaining serum. Cold rollers are also wonderful to use with Pure Enzymes if you’re needing extra exfoliation!”

Kasey then tops off her skincare pamper routine with COSMEDIX Cell ID Nutritive Defense Serum to help stop early signs of aging, then seals the deal with the complexion-quenching serum, Surge.

If you can’t already tell, Kasey knows how to chase her dreams and build a wildly successful business! She was recently named 2018 National Esthetician of the Year by COSMEDIX and went on to co-host her own podcast, Beauty Biz BFF’s, where she aims to inspire and help others grow their business. For these reasons and so many more, it is no secret that Kasey Boone is a spectacular and exciting addition to the COSMEDIX Advising Aesthetician Board!

Kasey Boone x COSMEDIX

To welcome Kasey aboard, COSMEDIX is offered a special promotion, featuring her GLOW SKINCARE Limited Edition Rose Gold Cold Roller! These stainless steel, cold rollers help with a variety of skin problems, including large pores, puffiness, redness and inflammation.

Better Together: Serum Cocktailing

Vacation and the beach. SPF and your skin. COSMEDIX products and your bathroom counter. In life, there are some things that are just so much better together. One of the latest trends taking over the skincare world is what the beauty industry has named serum cocktailing. Much like it sounds, serum cocktailing is the practice of mixing two or more of your serums in hopes of streamlining your skin care routine and helping to boost your treatment benefits. If you’re a serum cocktail beginner, COSMEDIX serums are the perfect place to start! Each COSMEDIX serum can be safely mixed with another serum, allowing you to cater to multiple concerns simultaneously. Even better, blending products doesn’t stop with our serums—cocktailing can also be combined with several of our toners and treatment products as well!  

To help you on your journey to becoming a serum mixologist, COSMEDIX gives you our favorite product hybrids:

Defy + Simply Brilliant + Pure C: Amp up the glow with this custom skincare concoction of exfoliating and radiance-boosting ingredients. Start by dispensing a small amount of our hydrating Defy Triple Hydroxy Acid Age-Defying Treatment into the palm of your hand. This gentle resurfacing treatment works great for those sensitive to retinol, revealing a fresh layer of skin for product absorption and acting as the base to your treatment cocktail (much like the cranberry to your Cosmo). Next comes the kick—apply a shot of our antioxidant-rich Simply Brilliant Brightening Serum, formulated with lactic and salicylic acid, to help refine the look of skin’s texture and help improve the overall penetration of brightening ingredients. Finally, garnish your serum cocktail with a sprinkle of COSMEDIX Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals. Formulated with 100% L-Ascorbic Acid, these crystals help maintain the skin’s flexibility, while helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle, which aids in improving the look of skin’s texture and tone.

Affirm + Defy: Pamper your skin by blending our Defy Triple Hydroxy Acid Age-Defying Treatment and Affirm Antioxidant Firming Serum into a supercharged skincare treatment. Powered with Vitamin E and age-defying peptides, this serum cocktail helps defend skin against harmful free radicals and environmental stressors, locking in hydration while providing a potent dose of powerful antioxidant protection. Defy works to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells, allowing skin to better retain moisture and absorb ingredients. Combined, these serums will have you covered in a smoother complexion that’s healthier-looking.

Purity Balance + Clear: Spot the difference when you mix our pore-refining Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner with the clarifying Clear Deep Cleansing Mask. This blend boosts the appearance of clear, healthy-looking skin by balancing the skin’s pH level, providing gentle exfoliation and helping absorb excess oils and impurities. The skin-loving ingredients found in this blend make it an ideal combo for acne-prone skin. Simply apply a small amount of Clear to your fingertips, spraying Purity Clean directly on top. Once mixed, this mask cocktail can be applied as an all over treatment or used as a spot treatment for specific problem areas.
