I'm so excited to check out the new line of skin care products from Joanna Vargas, the celebrity esthetician who operates a chic natural salon on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Her services are incredible (and, as you might expect, she serves a very limited number of clients each week, including celebs like Rachel Weisz). I love that Joanna takes a holistic approach to skin care, looking at skin health from the inside out, which makes me beyond excited to check out the new skin care line that she just launched. It's currently available on joannavargas-skincare.com and I'll be reviewing it here when I pay her a visit in a few weeks.
Here's what we can look forward to in the new line:
- Daily Green Serum (like a vitamin-rich smoothie for your face!)
- Rejuvenating Serum (highly moisturizing, healing, anti-inflammatory)
- Exfoliating Mask (a natural enzyme and physical exfoliant)
- Vitamin C Face Wash (packed with vitamin C and larch tree extract to inhibit fine lines)
"All of the products, which have been tested thoroughly for results in my salon facials over the past five years, are natural. Natural products are more effective because they assimilate into the skin much faster and are far healthier than products with chemicals."
To get your skin looking incredible from the inside as well, here are a few of Joanna's favorite beautyfying juice recipes, via dailycandy.com. Which one will you make first?
