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!

Meet Terrelle Harper of Terrelle’s Spa & Wellness in Atlanta

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). What started as a one-day holiday quickly transformed into National Aesthetician Month, where, since 2016, we’ve rolled out the red carpet all October long in celebration of all the skincare professionals who’ve helped us care for our complexions.

For NAM’s 5th anniversary, we’re showcasing some of the spas and professionals who have inspired our brand. This week, we’re highlighting Terrelle Harper, Aesthetician, Makeup Artist and Owner of Terrelle’s Spa & Wellness located in peachy Atlanta, Georgia.

Meet Derek Davenport, Visionary & Founder of Urban Routine

National Aesthetician Month—our favorite time of the year—is finally here! Five years ago, COSMEDIX created a national holiday, National Aesthetician Day (OCT. 15), to celebrate the beloved skincare professionals who help us pamper our complexions with clean, clinical and luxurious skincare products. What started as a one-day holiday quickly evolved into a month-long celebration of the aesthetics community and the vital role aestheticians play in a person’s journey to healthier and more radiant-looking skin.

As October rolls around again, we are so excited to kick off the 5th anniversary of National Aesthetician Month with a mini-blog series sharing the inside skincare scoop from some of our favorite aestheticians. Today, we’re shining light on Derek Davenport, the owner of skincare sanctuary Urban Routine, located in the heart of downtown Wichita, Kansas.

Meet Urban Routine

The urban oasis your skin needs, Urban Routine is an all-inclusive, high-end salon and spa dedicated to helping you find serenity for skin, hair, body and soul. Based in Wichita, Kansas, Urban Routine creates unique treatments for each guest, with offerings ranging from COSMEDIX facials and peels to skin therapy and body sugaring. We sat down with Urban Routine’s owner and aesthetician Derek Davenport to get his expert take on some of his favorite COSMEDIX products.

COSMEDIX Elite* Pepoxide | Antioxidant Peptide Concentrate

A supercharged blend of 16 powerful antioxidants and peptide amino acids, Pepoxide* is an age-defying concentrate that helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors while also helping to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Applying a pea-sized amount of this deeply conditioning serum day or night helps rejuvenate the look of skin for a more radiant-looking complexion.

Resync | Revitalizing Night Cream

A plant-based powerhouse night cream that helps revitalize the look of skin as you sleep, Resync is an antioxidant-rich moisturizer that deeply hydrates and aids the look of skin tone and texture. With skincare superstars like Snow Mushroom and Kaduku Plum Extracts, Resync intensely conditions the skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots for a more clarified-looking complexion.

Derek’s Take: “Microbiome support is key to treating every skin condition and Resync delivers incredible results for my clients and my own skin. Overnight moisturizers should be meticulously formulated to strengthen and repair the skin while we sleep, and this is done with key plant-based ingredients in this product.”

COSMEDIX Elite* Awaken | Replenishing Gel Mask

Invigorating to the touch and formulated with a rich blend of hydrating marine extracts, prebiotics and polyhydroxy acids (PHAs), Awaken wraps the complexion in a cooling sensation as ultra-conditioning ingredients help balance the look of skin and lock in moisture. Gently exfoliate away dry skin and help protect skin from environmental stressors for a smoother and firmer-looking complexion.

Derek’s Take: “Awaken helps me extend the results from the treatment room to at-home for my clients. It’s a great way for them to have a gentle exfoliation while also getting an added boost of prebiotics. It’s great for all skin conditions, however I prefer it for my acneic clients to use up to two times per week at home.”

Enhance | Lip-Plumping Mask

Pamper your pout with Enhance, the nutrient-packed, dual-action lip treatment that intensely conditions skin for smoother, softer, fuller-looking lips. Featuring a powerful peptide that helps improve the skin’s appearance and Shea & Cocoa Seed Butters that deeply moisturize lips, Enhance gives the skin-soothing TLC your dry, chapped lips need for pillow-soft hydration.

Derek’s Take: “ALL ABOUT THE LIPS! These get neglected since they are often hiding under masks but lips are still just as important. Enhance plumps the lips while conditioning them. It makes for an amazing overnight lip treatment or daily wear for dryer climates.”
