'She isn’t called the ‘‘cosmic facialist’’ for nothing. The London-born, New York-based Georgia Louise uses a combination of cutting-edge machines, meditation, massage and holistic nutritional advice to tend to the skin — and spirits — of A-listers like Emma Stone, Cameron Diaz and Linda Evangelista.
TOOLS OF HER TRADE Louise uses an advanced (and expensive) machine in her clinic called CACI Ultra. ‘‘It’s the strongest microcurrent machine on the market,’’ she says. ‘‘Clients get an instant lift, and visible reduction in fine lines.’’ For at-home wrinkle relief, she recommends the LightStim for Wrinkles light. ‘‘To help clear the air and balance chakras,’’ she uses dingsha (meditation cymbals) and aTibetan singing bowl during treatments. Another take-home tool: the Be Tru Beauty Tool acupressure pen‘‘lifts sagging jowls and softens fine lines.’’
INNER BEAUTY Louise treats clients from the inside out. For nutrientstarved skin, she suggests supplements from Advanced Nutrition Programme, including Skin Vitality 2. Her favorite wellness guru?

Another hot tea tip: Horsetail Tea from Marco Pharma International for puffy eyes and jowls. To combat sluggish digestion, she suggests a daily scoop of Bodyism Ultimate Clean Probiotic Fibre.

It’s beautiful.’’ Given her druthers, however, Louise would weekend at Chewton Glen, a sprawling country-house spa in Hampshire, England. ‘‘They’ve teamed up with Denise Leicester, the founder of Ila Spa, on a new Emotional Detox Retreat. I can’t wait to try it.’’ A fashion lover, Louise leans toward British designers like Mimi Paskaleva (for hats) and Maria Grachvogel, whose London shop is filled with ‘‘chic, feminine dresses that flatter my curves.’’'
