Kiana's Skincare Picks

Share This Article

As co-founder of a company that’s centered on beauty, it probably comes as no surprise that I’ve got a long-standing obsession with skincare. When I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do was to concoct my own hair and skincare products using wild coconuts and aloe vera foraged from the jungles of Kauai’s North Shore. If I could get my hands on some papaya and awapuhi wild ginger? Even better.

Nowadays, my approach to skincare is decidedly less adventurous. I’m a big believer that when it comes to skincare, less is truly more. I wear sunscreen every day, drink plenty of water, and do my best to make sure that what I’m putting on my skin and face (which ultimately gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream) is as clean as possible. Keeping in line with that philosophy, I also try to limit my daily routine to just a handful of holy grail products. And while I’m fully aware that what works for one person might not work for another, the following products have yet to fail me. If I can help to solve even one of your skincare woes, I’d say that’s a win, wouldn’t you? Here are my skincare essentials.

 

Clinique Pore Refining Solutions


Face masks are having a major moment. While I love trying new masks based on what my skin needs, this detoxifying charcoal based mask is the one I always find myself coming back to.

Kopari Coconut Sheer Oil


I use this daily, on top of my SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. It’s ultra moisturizing, and coconut oil is filled with antioxidants that are anti-aging. Coconut oil also possesses antibacterial properties which help prevent breakouts.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peel


This two-step treatment makes for a great daily exfoliator. In less than two minutes my skin is noticeably smoother and more radiant. If you deal with dull skin, this is for you.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion


Hands down, this is the best solution for breakouts! If I see a spot I’ll dab some of this on before bed and when I wake up, the whitehead has shrunk!

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic


I have sworn by this product for years—the results are so noticeable. It brightens my skin’s complexion, reduces the appearance of fine lines and protects against environmental stresses. Apply in the morning after cleansing and toning skin. Follow up with a moisturizing face oil and SPF.

MD Solar Science Mineral SPF 50


I grew up in Hawaii, and as awesome as that was, I am now noticing the effects of all that time spent in the sun. I am starting to get dark spots on my skin and now swear by sunscreen. This mineral based SPF glides on super smooth and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or with a white cast.

Eve Lom Cleansing Balm


I use this product once or twice a week, whenever I’m in need of a deep clean. The balm sinks into my pores to help draw out impurities. The rich formula feels spa-worthy!

Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream


I first purchased this product at my dermatologist's office and have been in love ever since. Formulated with caffeine and hyaluronic acid, this product erases my dark circles, reduces puffiness and fights off crow’s feet.
