Eva Mendes’ Esthetician Shares Her Four Favorite Anti-Aging Ingredients
Sep 18, 2020
Stopping your skin from aging can be challenging. Fortunately, there are effective ingredients and methods to help slow it down.
Kát Rudu, the esthetician to the stars, is proof that certain ingredients work. In fact, she developed an entire beauty brand around her expertise and her star-studded client list, including Eva Mendes, Jenna Dewan, and Kate Beckinsale. And, these ageless leading ladies are proof of Kát’s magic touch.
To make sure A-listers aren’t the only ones getting the special treatment, Rudu revealed to Beautytap her sought-after advice along with the exact ingredients to look for in anti-aging products. “It’s so rewarding to be part of someone’s skincare routine,” she told us. “Being an esthetician is a true passion of mine and I strive to help all my clients feel their best.”
Vitamin E and C, please
“Vitamin C and Vitamin E are key ingredients to a good anti-aging serum,” Rudu shared. According to her, Vitamin C can brighten the skin and repair UV damage, which significantly ages a person. Additionally, Vitamin E has the power to reduce wrinkles and prevent any premature aging. “Vitamin E is also able to minimize photoaging from the sun,” Rudu added.

Yes to Jujuba Fruit extract
The Jujuba Fruit, commonly known as the Chinese Date, has been cultivated in the East Asian country for thousands of years due to its wealth of health benefits. Not only does Rudu recommend keeping an eye out for it, but she made sure to incorporate it into her own formulas like in the Kát Rudu Hydra Cell C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid available online for $59.
“This serum is plant-based and the Ferulic and Hyaluronic Acid can diminish sun spots, boost collagen and restore the skin’s youthful texture,” she said. “The Jujuba Fruit Extract and natural supplements of Gotu Kola provide antioxidants, which can feed and plump the skin. Plus, they’re great for oily and acne-prone skin too.”

It also starts from within
However, it’s not just about being diligent with your regimen. Rudu emphasized that your mental health is just as important, and you can’t neglect this part of your life. “I believe that the path for a vibrant complexion at any age comes from choosing to be happy while living passionately, feeding the soul, feeding the body, and feeding the skin,” she pointed out.
Finally, enzymes for fall
Lastly, Rudu’s final piece of advice was to add enzymes to your upcoming cold weather beauty routine. “My new Paradise Glow Peel is a great summer to fall transition option,” the celebrity esthetician suggested. It’s equipped with powerful natural ingredients such as Pomegranate and Papaya Enzymes, Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Aloe Leaf, and 2% Glycolic Acid that all work together to clear away old skin cells and leave you with a refreshing, newfound glow.
