Frankie Grande is militant about his skincare! The YouTube phenom (and Ariana’s big brother) has been a devotee of The Lancer Method as well as our Sheer Fluid Sun Shield and Eye Contour Lifting Cream since the brand relaunched. He recently Instagrammed a command to his legions of followers, “Defend your skin with @drlancerrx” – and with good reason: from Big Brother 16 to his role in the Broadway production of Mamma Mia!, The Method has served him well. We’ve rarely seen a more flawless complexion – or had more fun than when he stops by to visit.
Mena Suvari has rarely had a moment out of the spotlight since her breakout role in American Beauty fifteen years ago. And with three new movies and a pilot coming out, she’s spent the better part of the last year on call for the camera. So how does she keep that fresh-faced glow despite logging serious hours in the makeup chair? We chatted with her to find out.
Lancer Skincare: What difference does good skincare make in your line of work?
Mena Suvari: It’s very important to have a good skincare regimen when you’re working in any type of environment that involves wearing full makeup for extended periods of time. As an actress, I can attest to how wonderful it is to know that I can clean my skin properly with Dr. Lancer’s products, refresh and renew my skin with what it was stripped of by wearing makeup all day, and also protect it for the coming day.
LS: Do you have a favorite product in the Lancer Skincare range?
MS: As per usual, it is difficult for me to just pick one product that I like more than others, as in this case it really is true that the products work together, hand-in-hand. But I will say that I really enjoy the Polishes, as I’m the type of person that loves that “squeaky clean” feeling when I wash my face. It’s probably because of living in a city – even being out during the day causes such a build-up!
LS: Quick glowing skin tip!
MS: I found that after using Dr. Lancer’s products, I didn’t need to wear any makeup during the day. Even products providing the lightest coverage, like tinted moisturizers, weren’t needed. Using The Method is powerful enough to really give me that even skin tone I’ve always wanted.
LS: What is the the most unexpected piece of advice Dr. Lancer has given you?
MS: Well, something that I was very impressed with was that Dr. Lancer talks to you about your specific needs based on your ethnicity and where your ancestors come from, which dictates how your skin will react and behave. For me, he explained that I need to wear sunblock all day every day because I am of Estonian descent, which makes my skin very sensitive to light. In fact, my skin could pigment even from the lighting they use on set! That really surprised me and was something I had never thought of!
We receive so many questions about how to use our celebrity beloved Lancer Method most effectively that we decided to put together an instructional video featuring one of our beautiful Lancer Devotees. The crux of The Lancer Method is of course our Polish, Cleanse and Nourish system, but we also recommend adding Advanced C Radiance Cream, Eye Contouring Lifting Cream and Sheer Fluid Sun Shield to your morning regimen. Take a look at the video for step-by-step instructions to get the most glow out of our A-list-approved, anti-aging skincare regimen.
Mogul, mother of four, fashion designer, pop star – how Victoria Beckham has time to look as fabulously flawless as she does is (almost) a mystery to us. Though we’re sure Becks has a bevy of beauty secrets, she has publicly revealed that she’s a devotee of The Lancer Method as well as our Lift Serum Intense and Sheer Fluid Sun Shield. A combination of healthy diet and lifestyle (which you can read about in Dr. Lancer’s anti-aging guide Younger) teamed with a strict adherence to our 3-step skincare Method, has helped the 40 year-old to overcome uneven, acne-prone skin. That radiant, blemish-free glow she now sports? Well, it has us thinking 40 may just be the new 20.
Last week we gave you the rundown of our marketing coordinator Madeline’s post-Coachella skincare rehab regimen. And now we’ve got the photographic proof of its speedy efficacy. Just one week after returning from the desert, Madeline’s Lancer Glow is back!
Upon returning from Coachella, Madeline’s skin was angry. Overexposure to the sun, heat and dry desert air had caused it to break out, dry out and become unevenly pigmented. To remedy this, Madeline exfoliated with Sensitive Polish for the first four days to jumpstart the cell renewal process. Exfoliation also causes blood circulation to increase, and this helped her blemishes to heal quickly without scarring. Plus, by using Polish in conjunction with a healthy daily dose of Sensitive Nourish, Retexturizing Treatment Cream and Advanced C Radiance and drinking a green juice and extra water each day, Madeline’s skin quickly regained hydration from the deep layers to the epidermis – hence her radiant glow. In the after photos, you can see what is, quite frankly, a miraculous recovery: redness is drastically reduced, pimples are nonexistent, her coloring is even, and her flaky, scaly skin is now smooth and soft to the touch. All just in time to go back for Stagecoach and do it again! (Kidding.)
No matter how well you care for your skin, there are times it can be hard to maintain a meticulous regimen, especially when you’re away from home. Last week we posted about how traveling can tax skin health: Flying speeds up dehydration and sun exposure, and upon landing, a change in hard or soft water and air humidity can easily irritate skin and cause breakouts and dryness.
But few climates are as brutal as the SoCal desert combined with the party atmosphere of Coachella. For nearly 15 years, Angelenos having been trekking to the desert to spend three days enjoying the music, sun, food and crowds that make up the famous festival. While we’re all for having some good, healthy fun—which Coachella makes easy with vegan and vegetarian food options, juice stands and fresh fruit—there are few things more taxing than three full days of sun exposure, ultra dry and hot temperatures, and the inevitable cocktail or five, we mean, two.
Our marketing coordinator headed to Coachella armed with her Lancer arsenal, but had a hard time maintaining her regimen in the desert. “My skin was super irritated from the heat, dry from the air, and so dirty. As much as I wanted to polish all the grime away, I knew I would be exposed to the same thing the next day, so I held off on polishing, and stuck with tons of Sheer Fluid SPF, Nourish and eye cream to stay as hydrated as possible.”
Even being so proactive, Madeline found that her skin suffered: “I can see the pigmentation on my nose, around my eyes and in the hollows of my cheeks from the sun. Plus some congested pores from all the sweat and dirt. I want my Lancer glow back!”
So what are the doctor’s orders for tackling post-Coachella skin? Check out Madeline’s rehab regimen below:
Diet. Beautiful skin starts from within, so the first step is to boost your daily intake of water and greens. This will make a big, and noticeable, difference. If you’re jonesing for something with more flavor than good old H2O and celery sticks, try Pressed Juicery‘s Greens 3 and coconut water for extra hydration.
Skin Care. It’s important to be diligent about your daily regimen once you’re back from the desert. Since returning from Coachella, Madeline has been following these steps:
