Celebrity skin expert Sonya Dakar is making it easier for you to whip your skin into shape at home.

Celebrity esthetician Sonya Dakar isn’t known by her longtime clients — including Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie, Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Lawrence — for having a tender touch. Her boot camp-style approach to whipping skin into shape has become somewhat of her signature, and now the skin expert is packaging the results-driven regimen into kits containing an array of peels, exfoliators, serums and oils designed to target specific skin needs.

Launching May 6, Dakar’s new Beauty Bootcamp sets of skincare will be available for purchase exclusively on shopping network Evine Live. Boxes are curated by concern and need, and range in price from $69 for the At Home Facial kit to $99 for the Anti-Aging Bootcamp. The majority of the products found in each kit are brand-new, while a few classics like her Flash Facial ($99) and Omega Oil ($52) are peppered in as well.

These more accessible versions of the six-week Beauty Bootcamp Detox regimen that Dakar usually puts her Beverly Hills clinic clients on will be showcased on Evine Live by Dakar herself, as well as her daughter, Mimi Dakar Berry, creative director of Sonya Dakar. With their often humorous back-and-forth banter and no-nonsense approach to getting skin into shape, the mother-daughter duo (pictured below) will no doubt help the kits fly off shelves.

Between bathing-suit season and spring-ready skin, boot camp is beckoning all around.
