It's been a harsh winter. We all know it and have felt it from the Midwest to the East Coast, even our southern cities that hardly ever see snow experienced the fright of ice, slush and winter's energy shut down their schools and pile up their highways. All we keep hearing is, "I'm over this winter! SO ready for Spring!" We feel ya beauties. It's been a real dud and we're also ready for a new season to begin. To be perfectly honest, I'm a better functioning human being when the weather is warmer. I wake up with the roosters and am ready to bolt for an early morning walk and a visit to our garden. I'm less cranky and need less coffee. I don't know about you. but I get super excited for new things and want to look my best. It's a great time for renewal, refreshing your routine and trying new things. La Bella Figura has a few new things for you skincare aficionados and we are so happy to share with you.
Let's start with our new Gentle Enzyme Cleanser. We thought long and hard about how we wanted to present a cleansing system that worked effectively to cleanse, remove makeup and gently exfoliate to turn over cells and leave skin hydrated and ready for serums, oils and treatments. Our formula is nourishing with moisture retentive Cupuacu and Marfura butters that are not clogging to the skin in the slightest and holds moisture into skin cells. We also added beneficial enzymes derived from papaya and pineapple to work their magic in gently sloughing off shedding cells. The upper layer of your skin is highly formed with dead skin cells that contain keratin protein that builds up and can cause that lackluster look. While it's important to exfoliate sometimes it can cause more harm than good when we over exfoliate with scrubs that contain shells or microbeads.and if you have sensitive skin or aging skin it's best to keep exfoliation to a few times a week instead of everyday, unless you're using a gentler method like enzymes. We added carrot seed oil and amaranth oil for their beneficial addition of Vitamin A and proteins to encourage skin rejuvenation and brightening. This is an active cleanser and when you apply it onto skin you should gently rub it in to allow the enzymes to perform and as a makeup remover this cleanser works great to remove even the most stubborn makeup. We tested it on waterproof mascara and it worked beautifully. If you like a nice creamy gel formula this is a great product to add to your regimen and we're loving our new daily cleansing experience. (Stay tuned as we've also been developing a cleanser for problem skin.)
If you love a superb nighttime skincare product (who doesn't, we adore our nighttime rituals), you'll definitely be eager to try ARIA Nighttime Cell Recovery Treatment. This product is spectacular and I know it sounds like I'm a Mom complimenting my own kid, but to be frank this product was created with myself and women my age (45) in mind. I needed this is my life and couldn't find a specific cell recovery product that was richer in proteins and antioxidants so I spent time studying skin cells and how they function from newly formed active cells to dying and aging cells and wow was I fascinated! Oil lovers are on the right track with replenishing nutrients and "feeding" oxygen starved cells, but as we get older we need a little more and Aria offers plenty of protein, amino acids, phytosterols, antioxidants, resveratrol and a brilliant composition of cell regenerating actives from saffron, helichrysum, arnica, rose damascena and rooibois extracts and essential oils. It's highly active and a few drops of this concentrated blend is all your skin needs to begin its nightly repair and renewal. This product is truly high performing and like a cashmere blanket for your skin. You'll wonder what you did without it.
Because it's the first day of Spring and we're so excited to introduce these new products to our lineup we are promoting a giveaway on all of our social media. Regram, repost and retweet using the hashtag #LBFSpringBeauty and we'll pick a winner next Thursday, March 27th.
