Meet Natalia Barzotti of Beauty Lab Skincare

National Aesthetician Day (OCT. 15) may be over, but National Aesthetician *Month* is still going strong! We’re celebrating the skincare professionals who have inspired our brand and helped care for our skin all month long with a mini-blog series sharing expert-approved COSMEDIX skincare tips and tricks from some of our most beloved aestheticians.

This week we’re highlighting Natalia Barzotti, Owner and Master Aesthetician of Beauty Lab Skincare in Los Alamitos, California.

About Natalia

The world of aesthetics is a family affair for Natalia Barzotti. With her mother working as an aesthetician for over 25 years, Natalia grew up inspired by skincare and the treatment room—so much so that she decided to pursue one for her own. Enter Beauty Lab Skincare. Natalia’s salon combines luxurious, targeted treatments with her passion for skincare education to help clients achieve a healthier-looking complexion. An aesthetician for 11 years, Natalia’s expertise and dedication has helped bring a dose of radiance to sunny Los Alamitos, California.

Natalia has shared some of her favorite COSMEDIX skincare products that help constitute a pampering, well-rounded skincare routine.

1. Purity Clean | Exfoliating Cleanser

Natalia’s Note: “Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser is by far my favorite cleanser due to its ability to keep the skin clear without comprising the skin whatsoever of its natural oil and hydration!”

What it is: Take on the day—or take it off—with this gentle exfoliating cleanser that helps lift away dirt, oil and other pore-clogging impurities without stripping the skin of essential moisture. Formulated with the gently exfoliating L-Lactic Acid, skin-loving Tea Tree Oil and invigorating Peppermint Oil, Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser massages into a rich lather to help minimize extra shine and improve the look of skin tone and texture. No wonder Hailey Bieber’s facialist used this all-in-one cleanser to help Hailey achieve her wedding glow.

Natalia’s Pro Tip: “Apply Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser dry as a mask and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with water. Or, use as a body wash to help minimize back and chest acne!”

2. Pure Enzymes | Cranberry Exfoliating Mask 

Natalia’s Note: “As an aesthetician I love a good exfoliation and enzyme! Use Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask to give yourself a beautiful at-home facial. I often include this mask in my Beauty Lab Boxes for a great at-home COSMEDIX facial experience.”

What it is: Indulge in antioxidant-rich exfoliation with Pure Enzymes, the skin-loving cranberry exfoliating mask. Dual exfoliators L-Lactic Acid and Cranberry Enzymes gently polish away dull, dead skin to help reveal a softer, more radiant-looking complexion. Plus, this at-home botanical mask boosts hydration and helps protect the skin from environmental stressors for an age-defying appearance.

Natalia’s Pro Tip: “Mix Pure Enzymes with Purity Detox Scrub for an exfoliating power boost to the skin!”

3. Opti Crystal | Liquid Crystal Eye Serum + Eye Doctor | High-Potency Eye Treatment*

Natalia’s Note: “I bring out the big guns when I use the incredible duet of Opti Crystal and Eye Doctor! There’s nothing better than this eye treatment duo in my opinion. Hydrating, nourishing and effective!”

What it is: COSMEDIX has your delicate under eyes covered with these fan-favorite Liquid Crystal Technology products that are designed to intensely condition the under eye area, helping to visibly reduce the appearance of dark circles and crow’s feet. Start with best-selling Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum, the winner of Aesthetician’s Choice in the 2021 Dermascope Awards, to help alleviate tired-looking eyes. Then, for a step up, apply Eye Doctor, the spa-exclusive COSMEDIX Elite* skincare product, for a high-potency eye treatment with age-defying results.

Natalia’s Pro Tip: “Want an extra under eye glow? Apply a little Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum over your concealer and cheek bones for an added glow-up before you go out!”

*Discover COSMEDIX Elite, the spa-exclusive collection of clinical-grade skincare products which deliver a luxurious, pampering experience for visibly noticeable results with less harsh side effects. Take a look at our Spa Finder to find the closest COSMEDIX Elite products to you.

4. Bio-Shape | Firming Face Mask

Natalia’s Note: “Everyone needs skin-firming, hydrating and tightening effects! Bio-Shape Firming Face Mask is a phenomenal product which I love to wear while I sleep to wake up with skin that looks firmer and tighter!”

What it is: It’s time to shape up your skin! This ultra-moisturizing, firming face mask helps tighten and smooth skin for an age-defying complexion. Bio-Shape’s heavy duty skincare-infused formula utilizes “lifting technology” to help firm sagging skin for immediate and long-term effects. Use up to three times per week, AM or PM, for an ultra-creamy and hydrating, spa-like experience.

Natalia’s Pro Tip: “Apply a pin-sized amount of Bio-Shape Firming Face Mask to the skin. Then, use a foundation makeup brush to gently apply over your foundation! This is one of my secrets for getting that dewy, glowing skin when I go out!” Thanks to Natalia for sharing her favorite COSMEDIX skincare recommendations with us!

At COSMEDIX, we believe our aestheticians deserve to be recognized, which is why, five years ago, we created a day just for them—National Aesthetician Day (OCT. 15).

Meet Tiffany Newman of The Peninsula Facialist

We love our aestheticians so much that, five years ago, we created a day just for them—National Aesthetician Day (OCT. 15). What started as a one-day holiday quickly transformed into a month-long celebration with National Aesthetician Month, a befitting celebration of all the skincare professionals who help us achieve our complexion goals. Not only do they help customize our skincare routines with high-performance products and indulge our skin in gentle yet impactful treatments, but they also serve as much-needed educational support throughout our skincare journeys. Needless to say, they deserve *all* the love.

We’re celebrating this year for NAM’s 5th anniversary with festivities including a mini-blog series dedicated to the spas and professionals that have inspired our brand. This week, we’re highlighting Tiffany Newman, Aesthetician and Owner of The Peninsula Facialist located in sunny Monterey, California.

About Tiffany

Tiffany Newman has served a multitude of roles on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula as an Aesthetician for the last 12 years, including a Lead Spa Aesthetician, Freelance Educator, Medical Aesthetician, and for the last two years, Owner of The Peninsula Facialist. Tiffany has always believed in treating the skin with a “holistic meets clinical” approach. This includes educating her clients on lifestyle changes, nutrition and body movement, as her philosophy promotes treating the skin from the inside out. This is also why COSMEDIX was chosen as her first professional line to bring in, as she felt our clean, clinical approach to skin, backed by science, is a perfect fit for her clients!

Without further ado, let’s get Tiffany’s expert recommendations on the perfect COSMEDIX skincare pairings for a healthier-looking complexion.

Tiffany’s 3-Step Skin Care Routine For Post-Summer Skin

Tiffany’s Take: “Treat post-summer skin with my favorite AM trio! Mix in a shake of the B Complex Powder with Elite Pepoxide, then after applying, press BrillianCy Brightening Face Oil on top for overall firming, brightening and hydration!”

1. B Complex | Vitamin B Boosting Powder

Skin feeling or looking imbalanced from beach days this summer? The first skincare go-to in Tiffany’s morning lineup is B Complex, a customized blend of 10% Niacinamide and Biotin Vitamin B boosting crystals, along with the purifying power of Coconut Powder and hydrators, to help clarify and condition the appearance of skin for a more even-looking complexion.

2. COSMEDIX Elite* Pepoxide | Antioxidant Peptide Concentrate

Tiffany recommends clients mix B Complex in with Pepoxide,* the age-defying concentrate that helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors while also helping to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Featuring a supercharged blend of 16 powerful antioxidant ingredients and peptide amino acids, this deeply conditioning serum helps rejuvenate the look of skin with just a pea-sized application for a more radiant-looking complexion.

3. BrillianCy | Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil

Upgrade your post-summer skincare routine with Tiffany’s pick for a fresh burst of hydration and brighter-looking appearance: BrillianCy. Infused with a luxurious blend of skin-soothing Elderberry fruit extract and age-defying plant-based ingredients, this Vitamin C Brightening Face Oil absorbs quickly to condition and help protect skin from environmental stressors for a brighter-looking complexion.

Tiffany’s Expert Recommendation for Deep Cleansing

COSMEDIX Elite* RX Clean | Exfoliating Cleanser

Help deeply cleanse and balance the appearance of skin with Tiffany’s recommended COSMEDIX product, the skin-refreshing exfoliating cleanser, RX Clean.* Designed to gently cleanse away excess oil and impurities while also deeply hydrating skin with Lactic Acid, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera, RX Clean helps create a smoother skin surface for an improved look of skin tone and texture.

Tiffany’s Take: “While in the shower, massage in this Lactic Acid-rich cleanser and let it infuse into your skin for 5 minutes before rinsing off for a deeply purifying mask treatment that leaves your skin fresh and glowing!”

Tiffany’s Expert Recommendation For Acne-Prone Skin

Purity Balance | Exfoliating Prep Toner

Maskne has become *such* a thing for all skin types, not to mention adding stress to already acne-prone skin. To help restore the look of your complexion from daily environmental stressors, Tiffany recommends incorporating Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner into your daily skincare routine. Featuring a monumental cast of skin-loving ingredients like Salicylic and Lactic Acids, Tea Tree Oil and Niacinamide, this best-selling toner works to exfoliate and draw out pore-clogging impurities and excess oil without stripping the skin for a glow-getter, shine-free finish.

Tiffany’s Take:Keep Maskne at bay by not only incorporating the exfoliating toner Purity Balance into your regime, but also use it to spray the inside of your mask to help control bacteria!”

Tiffany’s Guide to Your COSMEDIX Evening Skincare Routine

Tiffany’s Take: Ramp up your rejuvenating night routine by blending and boosting your serums! My personal favorite blend for overall radiant skin is Cell ID, a boost of Pure C and Elite* Serum 24!”

1. Cell ID | Nutritive Defense Serum

Tiffany’s first favorite serum blend is ideal for those seeking rejuvenated-looking skin, Cell ID is formulated with a powerful blend of age-defying peptides as well as Japanese Orchid Stem Cell and African Mahogany Tree Bark Extract that work together to help improve the appearance of skin for a firmer and more refreshed-looking complexion. Help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots with this antioxidant-rich serum.

2. Pure C | Vitamin C Mixing Crystals

Pure C is a unique, age-defying mixing powder and skincare booster that helps brighten and improve skin texture and tone. The 100% L-Ascorbic Acid crystallized formula boosts the results of other serum and moisturizer cocktails—as Tiffany suggests, Pure C is a must in helping to create the perfect skincare cocktail for a radiant-looking complexion.

3. COSMEDIX Elite* Serum 24 | Rapid Renewal Complex featuring LG-Retinex

A step up from Serum 16, this powerhouse serum contains 24% LG-Retinex to help deliver optimal age-defying Retinol results—without the common Retinol irritation.Available from COSMEDIX Spa Partners like Tiffany, Serum 24* is clinically proven to help visibly reduce the look of medium to deep lines while also encouraging a brighter and firmer-looking complexion.
