Why Choose Elena Rubin Skin Care Products
What’s so different about this skincare line?
Elena Rubin products work because they are made with chirally-correct, synergistic actives. Let’s break this down.
Chirality: Every molecule has two sides that look more or less identical, but have different chemical properties. We only use the sides that achieve the desired skincare results, and don’t cause harm. Hence, our products are chirally-correct (and super effective!).
Synergistic Actives: Our products are incredibly pure and gentle: they are paraben-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, artificial fragrance/phthalate-free, and artificial color-free. We produce them in small batches, and they look, smell, and feel like no other skincare product out there.
Are your products tested on animals?
Never. We test on ourselves, and other fully consenting humans. Our clients inspire a lot of our products, and we’ve been known to ask a lucky few to sample new formulations (after us, of course). We would never offer you anything we haven’t first tried, loved, and used on a regular basis.
Is Elena Rubin a real person?
Yes! And she used to have not-so-great skin.
Rosacea-prone and oily, Elena’s skin has always needed coddling. In college, she broke out into severe, recurring acne for an entire year, and spent painstaking days nursing her skin back to health. Finally, after decades of redness and sensitivity aggravated by mainstream skin treatments, Elena founded Elena Rubin Skincare.
How’s Elena’s skin now?
Elena has spent the last five years mastering the art of glowing, happy, low-maintenance skin. She takes her own advice, and follows a skin plan, getting a SKIN FITNESS FACIAL every four weeks on the dot, and performing daily upkeep with the PURIFY bundle including STIRLING and MONARCH add ons.
Picking Your Products
I want to use Elena Rubin skincare. Where do I begin?
There are three ways to start:
1. Replace products from your previous skin regimen with Elena Rubin alternatives as they run out.
2. Purchase a targeted product for a specific skin ailment, such as BYGONES for blemish control.
3. Take the plunge and switch out all your products This is the most popular and effective way to begin, and you’ll notice the benefits right away!
How do I know which products are right for me?Our skincare bundles make choosing the right products easy. Consider this:
— Is your skin naturally clear, low maintenance, and supple? If so, our SIMPLIFY bundle is for you.
— Does you skin ignite at the slightest irritation? Our SOOTHE bundle will put your skin on the path to healing.
— Do you frequently have blackheads, acne, and oily skin? The PURIFY bundle will help reduce breakouts and return your skin to a healthy balance.
— Do you struggle with skin unevenness or age spots? Our ILLUMINATE bundle reduces signs of aging and infuses your complexion with a healthy, even glow.
— Is body acne or recurring, all-over dryness an issue for you? The BODY bundle will leave your skin nourished, soft and hydrated.
Can I use other products with an Elena Rubin regimen and method?
Of course! If you have a product that you love, that really works, that you miss when you aren’t using it, by all means keep using it. And tell us about it! We’re skincare geeks, and love to study product labels.
However, most of the time our clients aren’t absolutely in love with their other products—they’re just in the habit of using them. And in some cases, those products are doing more harm than good (think tightness, rashes, flaky skin). If this sounds like you, we encourage you to keep looking for that product that makes your skin positively radiant, with us or elsewhere!
What You Can Expect
Will your products get rid of dark spots?
Yes. Try LIGHTEN UP brightening serum 2x per day and the LUX brightening cleanser 1x per day to help even skin tone and fade dark marks. It will take some patience—natural brighteners need 2-3 months before you to start to see the full effect—but our clients experience breath-taking results.
Will your products get rid of puffiness around the eyes?
Yes. INCOGNITO can help a lot with this. It contains circulation-boosting actives that help reduce stagnation in the eye area. Exercise, acupuncture and proper hydration (drink that cucumber water!) also help to reduce puffiness.
Do you have products for helping with Rosacea?
Yes. REMEDY (formerly called MODEL CITIZEN) serum really can reverse the tracks of chronically red skin. Be sure to use a gentle cleanser like SOLACE and a protecting day lotion with mineral sunscreen like CARPE DIEM as well. If your skin is oily, too, try alternating the VERITAS bar with the SOLACE cleanser to keep your skin in balance.
Do you have products for acne-prone skin?
Yes! In fact, we have a crack team of them. VERITAS is a great acne cleanser. BYGONES keeps the blackheads under control. AD HOC spot treatment corrects flare-ups when they occur. SERENDIPITY is the perfect lightweight, non-clogging night lotion to use so you donʼt overdry. CLARITY CLAY is an ideal weekly mask treatment will keep you from being overly shiny and congested. Together, they’ll keep your acne at bay. All of these but CLARITY CLAY come in the PURIFY bundle.
What are your anti-aging products, and how do they work?
We have so many! The best anti-aging, firming, toning products we have are STIRLING, BIOGENESIS, INCOGNITO, LUX, SERENITY, CARPE DIEM and REFINE.
