They say a girl begins the ageing process at the tender age of 25. Yes that scares me. A Lot. But then again, I know we’re pretty much well equipped to defy gravity. Just look what that Felix guy did yesterday.
But what about premature wrinkles? I was invited to attend the very glamorous opening of Vis.Age Boutique last Thursday, a new store next to La Marina Dbayeh carrying a wide range of skin care products and make-up from Beverly Hills like Sormé and Refineé. The kind of lines used by Kim Kardashian, Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz. And according to the professionals there if you’re consuming anything from alcohol, cigarettes or taking that occasional stroll in the sun (check, check and check!) you need to be treating your skin beneath all those layers of makeup, pronto. It’s about finding a balance between what’s aesthetic and anti aging. No matter how young you are, you are not immune to that skin creasing so moisturize, moisturize and oh yeah , moisturize!
Of course I indulged in some Champagne and hors d’oeuvres while I dabbled in all that make-up. I felt like a kid in a candy store.
I was even lucky enough to get myself a mini-makeover by one of the lovely owners and entrepreneurs who really knew to pick the right colors for my skin tone. She used the Wild Rose blush on me which I’m going back for soon.
Vis.Age is all about spreading awareness on skin care health and the team opens its doors weekly to anyone who’d take an appointment and like to go in and learn more about facial treatments through in-store demonstrations and pampering sessions.
I got to go home with a bottle of Refineé day lotion with green tea extracts, tried it on yesterday and it felt good. Apparently, it’s great for men too so I tried to get mine to put some on as well, but he wouldn’t budge. Oh well, more for me.
