MEET | MELANIE SIMON

Featured 11.19-11.25.18 | Two words we were never expecting to say in the same sentence? Electricity and skincare. Until we met mad scientist and beauty guru, Melanie Simon, who opened our eyes to the power (had to) of electricity to help stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin (and let’s be honest, at this point we’ll do anything to get things stimulated, right?). In addition to developing her in-demand electrical facials, which she now performs from offices in Montecito, LA and Jackson Hole, she’s also responsible for dreaming up the ZIIP—a tiny nanocurrent skincare device that can be used for lifting, sculpting, tightening and just achieving a general *I woke up like this* glow. So what’s this electrical esthetician (yes, that’s a thing) up to when she’s not making the world a dewier place? She’s embracing mountain life in a small town near Tejon Ranch in California, hanging with her daughter or circling the globe in her pajamas (not necessarily the ones that are her “daytime” outfit). Whether it’s her love of mountains or her love of nanocurrents, spending the week with this skincare wizard is truly nothing short of unique. Welcome to Melanie’s week.
