Janna Ronert Drops Her Skin-Care Routine

You may not know Janna Ronert’s name—but if you’ve ever had a facial, chances are you’ve used her products. She’s the founder of Image Skincare, a clean clinical range of products that’s considered the number one spa brand in America.

Today, Image’s products are stocked in over 25,000 spas across the country, but back in 2003, Ronert, a licensed esthetician, started the brand in hopes of helping herself. “I suffered from really severe rosacea for many years and worked with many other professional brands and just truly couldn’t find a brand that could solve my own skincare issues,” she tells Glamour. She explains that she always loved beauty and skin care, but never thought she would end up with a career in the industry. 

“I actually went to college, I have a degree in business,” she says. “I worked with many Fortune 100 companies in sales and marketing. But because of my skin issues, I just wanted to become an esthetician. I kind of did it silently; I was a closet esthetician for many years. I think my family and my friends would’ve thought I was totally crazy, but I just was driven to love skin and learn more about it.”

“I grew up rummaging through my mom and my four sisters’ drawers of makeup and skincare,” she continues. “I think that really early age, really pretty skin gave me a lot of confidence and happiness, and it still does.” The road to “pretty skin” hasn’t been easy though, and she’s not afraid to put in the work.

“My rosacea, I’ve gotten down. I’m in good shape now,” she says. “But I think at my age, my biggest concern are really the prevention of lines and wrinkles. So I’m kind of the master exfoliator. I’m a huge fan of exfoliation. Now, especially since this year with COVID and so many Zooms, I’m really into illumination and glowing skin. So the program that I thought I’d share with you today is really how to get the glow.” 

Below, Ronert shares the products she can’t live without. Read on as she drops her routine. 

My cleansers

I use a couple of different tools to help in the cleansing process. I love the Michael Todd Beauty Soniclair Elite Brush. It’s an electric brush that really cleanses the skin.  I like to mix that with our Ageless Total Facial Cleanser. That’s an exfoliator with glycolic acid, AHAs, and BHAs, so that gets my skin going. Then I like to use our Iluma Brightening Exfoliating Cleanser. This is a brand new product that we just bought out; it has bamboo spheres mixed with enzymes, called smart-sensing beads, which burst on your skin. They have natural extracts of white peony, licorice, green tea, and natural rice water. So this is a really good double cleanse. Don’t forget I’m an esthetician, and I have the means to do a lot, so I do a lot to my skin. I work it out pretty good. 

At night, I use that same Total Facial Cleanser because I love to exfoliate. But then the second cleanse is what I do for my rosacea. I use the Vital C Hydrating Cleanser because that tends to really calm my skin down. It handles all of the free radicals that were going on from my stress during the day.

My serums 

I like to cocktail three things together. I love vitamin C; I’m a big fan of that for anti-aging and brightening. Our number-one product is our Vital C Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum, and I mix that with the Total Anti-Aging Serum, which has more AHAs, BHAs, and peptides.
