Early this month, the Origins Flatiron store in NYC celebrated the launch of Origins latest ‘it’ product—GinZing™ Energy-boosting moisturizer. This amazing cream is perfect for summer! Origins state it’s, “like a shot of espresso for tired skin,” I am in! This may just curb my Starbucks addiction.
We all have fifty thousand anti-aging skin care products lurking in our bathroom, and we’ve all done it—layer them on top of each other, trying to reach the perfect pinnacle of radiance, tone, luminosity and wrinkle reduction. Reality? Irritation, sometimes lots of it. And, unbeknownst to the most well intended skin care neophyte—some ingredients can actually cancel each other out. Say it isn’t so! Put vitamin C on top of vitamin A (aka retinoid) and POOF! You might as well have flushed your very expensive creams down the “loo” as the Brits would say.
Mom. Who could replace her? She is the amazing lady that tied our shoes when we were young and then taught us about Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin. We have always been Diva’s in training—thanks Mom! What could we ever do to repay her? My #1 pick for Mom (or Mum as the British would say) is a product line called Revale. It gives a potent anti-aging punch but is very gentle on Mom’s tender visage. AND, it is derived from my oh so favorite beverage. Stay tuned, and I will let you know how to rock Mom’s world, she might even buy you a new pair of shoes to say thanks.
Are you sitting down? What does a latte and radiant skin have in common? Don’t call me crazy just yet. Before you start dunking Mom’s face in your Starbucks, let me tell you about the newest anti-aging breakthrough—the coffee berry, which is found in the Revale skin care line. This little sucker packs an anti-oxidant punch that is eight to ten times more potent than vitamin C. It is more potent than both pomegranate and green tea. And believe it or not, it is very gentle on the most sensitive skin. (Mom will love you for this.)
How was this tiny titan of beauty discovered you ask? Ladies, are you ready for this? The workers who harvest the coffee bean are known to have smoking hot hands, despite blazing sun exposure. They sport leather-like skin everywhere except for those harvesting hands. So, we really need to send a thank you to these guys—not only do they supply us with our morning jolt, they accidentally stumbled upon our fountain of youth.
