Wanting to give our readers more insider information from those who have the best knowledge in the beauty and fashion worlds, we reached out to Ronit, who is at the top of her field as a skin care professional.
Ronit’s career extends over 20 years and she is famed for her ability to transform problem skin. Her expertise is visible on every complexion she works with. So, what are her ultimate skin care secrets and tips? We sit down with her to get the scoop on the most effective method to transform your skin for a big event and her recommendations on to reboot your daily skin care regime too. She will also be appearing in our first Influencer & Expert video.
JOVANI: Hi Ronit, thank you so much for being here with us today and for sharing your knowledge with our fans!
First off, we know that you are a leader in the industry and you’ve dedicated your life to providing women with the best techniques in the world for transforming their skin. What inspired you to go into the skincare business?
RONIT: Since I was a teenager, I had very problematic skin. It got to the point that I didn’t want to go to school because I was embarrassed of the way my skin looked. My sister and I were growing up middle class but living in a rich neighborhood and I felt that all of our peers were taking care of their skin and looking good. We could not spend much money on our beauty, skin and clothing, so I became obsessed with finding new ways to perfect my problem skin. I promised myself that one day I was going to find a solution for acne and impurities.
While everyone was else was spending their summer on the beaches I was studying about skincare and perfecting new techniques. Once I had figured out the trick to curing my own acne, I had this deep overwhelming urge to help others. Life brought me to the point where I had to manifest my knowledge.
What actually prompted me to follow my dreams of helping others in their skincare journey was a terrible hardship I was going through. I came out of a very nasty divorce with my two young children, and knew I had to pick myself back up onto my feet again. I knew that the time had come to use my talent and knowledge to help others. Even though I needed the money, I wasn’t doing it for the money – I was doing it to serve others. What I got the most satisfaction from was giving treatments to others and making them feel good at a time in my life when I wasn’t feeling good. It helped uplift me to live out my passion, and success just came over time with hard work and results.
JOVANI: What are some of the skin care techniques you recommend to girls and women who are having oily skin, large pores, chronic acne, blackheads, or discoloration, who want to transform their skin in time for a special event like prom or a wedding?
RONIT: Up to this day, there is no 100% one-size-fits-all solution to acne and problematic skin. After experiencing so much in home care products, professional products and lifestyle changes, I can now share a number of different techniques that I know can greatly improve problematic skin. There is no cure-all, but if you treat it from many angles at once you will see a major improvement in just a few weeks.
JOVANI: What are some specific dietary changes women should make in the month or two months leading up to a big party, wedding, prom or special event?
RONIT: I must mention that everything starts with the stomach – you have to start on the inside to see results on the outside. You can control the debris, oily skin, and acne at home by incorporating things like Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother in it. Drink 2 oz of the vinegar with 2 oz of warm water and drink it twice a day, morning and night. It helps detoxify and clear out the bad bacteria in your body. Drink lots and lots of water – and not just any water, drink alkaline water that controls and balances the acidity in our stomach. I recommend drinking 10 cups of alkaline water each day leading up to an big special event like a wedding or prom.
It’s important also to be friendly to your body and to keep your body balanced. Make sure to eat lots of leafy greens and colorful vegetables
to increase vitamin intake and help your stomach and intestines stay healthy. It’s particularly important to cut down as much as you can on cheese and sugar in the month leading up to a big special event or party. This will cut down on the inflammation in your body and helps ensure your body is functioning at its best on the inside, which results in more beautiful, glowing skin on the outside.
JOVANI: Do you have any recommendations for skin care masks people can create at home? What is the difference between an at-home treatment and a professional treatment?
You can tone your skin at home with rosewater, make a mask with cinnamon, crushed garlic and ginger to reduce inflammation, and even make a wash by mixing water with apple cider vinegar. These are all great for short-term results, and should be repeated weekly. To get to the second layer of skin for deeper, more lasting results, be sure to see a skin care professional weekly, two to three months before your event. It all starts with a deep cleansing facial, and then we create a specific series of treatments that make up a beauty care regimen.
JOVANI: Do you have any last tips for our fans and readers when it comes to beauty and skin care?
Finally, always wear sunscreen
. I recommend wearing a physical sunscreen to all my clients because it sits on the top layer of the skin – the harmful chemicals don’t get absorbed into the skin. Wearing sunscreen will keep your skin protected from the elements and keep the wrinkles away.
Finally, don’t forget about your skin. Your skin can’t talk, and it doesn’t have a voice – some women take care of everyone else and everything else except for their skin. Don’t ignore your skin until it’s crying out for help with problematic issues, and then don’t cover it up with makeup that can make things worse. Make time for self-care and treat your skin from the outside and from the inside to transform the way you look and feel.
JOVANI: Thank you again so much, Ronit, for all your amazing information. We’re so grateful for the time you’ve taken to talk to us about your experience and techniques, and know Jovani’s fans are thankful for all your great tips as well.
