As the summer starts to heat up in NY, everyone’s calendar will start to fill with up events to attend. Wouldn’t it be nice to have your skin impeccable and show off your timeless beauty? We sat down with Skincare Expert, Cecilia Wong, and had the pleasure of asking her a few questions about how we can get our skin glowing and healthy for the months ahead.
Where did the idea for your business come from?
I grew up with bad skin- acne, excessive oil, congested skin, clogged pores. I started getting facials at 14 years old but didn’t like the products they used on my skin. One day, was in my kitchen preparing some fruits and decided to create a facial mask out of blueberries and papaya and applied it on my skin.. did that for a week and saw a huge improvement on my skin.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
I had clients tell me how thankful they are to have found me and how I have changed their skin and their life – that is most rewarding for me..
What’s the best beauty treatment you’ve ever had?
The microcurrent, this is the ultimate pre- red carpet, antiaging treatment to have. It lifts and tones the facial muscles. The results are immediate.
Of all the Products you make, which is the one you couldn’t live without?
The Black currant serum, this was the first product I created and was inspired by my love of juicing. This literally changed my skin forever.
My skincare line is 100% natural and organic. I use only the highest quality ingredients and all made in the U.S. The star ingredients are all herbs and fruits that we consume on a daily basis. What inspires me are my clients. They are the reason why I do what I do and continue to create more products that heal with visible results.
What advice can you give a client before a BIG Event?
Always hydrate your skin. Whether it be juicing or applying a serum on your face. Your skin will glow from inside out.
How would you describe your signature style in five words?
Elegant, Sophisticated, Poise, Bold, & Alluring
Where can we purchase your Skincare line?
Currently, they are available on our website http://www.ceciliawongskincare.com, Amazon.com and our salon on 5th Ave.
When you aren’t doing this, what are you doing?
I love to read books, research on herbs and essential oils and spend time with my dogs.
