Secrets of Glowing Skin from a Renowned New York Facialist
Eileen Feighny della Faille’s skin is undeniably radiant and glowing, enough to draw the attention of anyone in her presence. Her signature two-hour session includes a range of services such as extracts, aromatherapy, radiofrequency treatments and so much more – all designed with one goal: providing you with maximum pampering while reviving your skin’s health.
With Korean heritage behind her, it’s no wonder why she has an undying passion for skincare – though she doesn’t believe daily routines are necessary to keep your complexion looking its best.
At the peak of her modeling career, Feighny della Faille experienced a turbulent bout with long-lasting adult acne. “My complexion had always been clear until then,” she recounts, “but it was all due to the large amounts of commercial makeup I used for photoshoots. The situation became so dire that I eventually lost gigs because my skin wasn’t up to par.”
This prompted Feighny to create Tulura New York – an incredible line of clean, effective and fast-acting formulas designed specifically for those suffering from similarly stubborn skin conditions.
“Fascinated by the idea of achieving clear skin, I started crafting my own skincare products and giving facials to the people in the creative industry – models, photographers, directors,” says Feighny. Due to Feighny della Faille’s remarkable work which resulted in instant gratification for her clients, news about her quickly spread like wildfire. She soon became a much sought-after beauty secret weapon!
Indulge in a heavenly session with her if you can, but even if that isn’t possible, here are her top tips for achieving and retaining luminous complexion while at home. Her words of wisdom? “Don’t forget to massage your skin when applying products – it helps increase lymphatic drainage and makes the face look energized and healthy”. So go ahead, pamper yourself!
1. Oil Cleanser
“My oil cleanser is made with salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid that works wonders for treating blemishes. It doesn’t just remove sebum and sweat that clog your pores; it removes dead skin too without disrupting the protective barrier of your skin! Believe me – I know first-hand how quick and easy this product can be! I’ve used it in an airport bathroom to take off all my makeup using nothing but a wet paper towel. Not only is it superb as a spot treatment, but massaging this miracle worker into congested areas helps break up anything blocking the way to healthy skin.”
“Visualize your skin as a dry sponge, then imagine drenching that sponge with serum. These serums penetrate much deeper than other products like lotions and creams, providing effective hydration and stimulation to the skin cells. Follow it up by smothering in face oil for all-day moisture retention – this is one of the best ways to give your skin an extra boost!”
3. Moisturize with Facial Oil
“Face oils are a staple in my skincare routine, as they hydrate the skin much better than conventional creams which contain binders that just sit on top of your skin. Two luxurious ingredients I love to use for their incredible benefits are tamanu and helichrysum – both can help soothe and restore the appearance of dull looking skin!”
“My facials are taken to a whole other level with the addition of chemical peels – they’re perfect for refining pores! Glycolic acid is just remarkable, providing an effective solution to fine lines and wrinkles as well as enhancing hydration levels. And salicylic acid? It works absolute wonders when it comes to breakouts.”
5. Clay Masks
“Clay possesses a remarkable power to detoxify, making it an ideal ingredient for oil cleansers. Whether you’re working with bentonite clay specifically designed for blemish-prone skin; rhassoul suitable for any skin type; or white kaolin tailored for sensitive complexions – simply apply a smooth layer of your chosen concoction and relax as it works its magic over the next 20 minutes!”
