Ole Henriksen "Empowers" Your Skin Care

It’s never too early to start a skincare regime. While 20-somethings still have dewy skin, everyday stress from work and personal life, in addition to environmental issues, are factors that contribute to dull and dehydrated skin and signs of aging.

Ole Henriksen launches the Empower Collection – a daily skin care routine formulated with nature-based Scandinavian ingredients to address these needs and provide that “glow from within”.   Ole’s philosophy is “Nature, Science, Beauty, Wellness … A total lifestyle brand” and is reflected in this collection.  Many of the same ingredients from his regular line are reformulated to address specific needs that 20-somethings face.

The collection consists of the 3 main ingredients: Arctic Cloudberry (antioxidant-rich to fend off free radicals and fortify skin), Nordic Cotton (packed with Omega-6 for weightless hydration while calming and cushionig the skin), and White Willowbark (a gentle exfoliator).  Empower foaming milk cleanser ($26), Empower featherweight moisturizer  ($36), and Empower hydrating hand crème ($20) are currently available at Sephora.

Trilogy Cosmetics Give You the Royal Treatment

Finally, you can look like a princess. Ok, not so easy but with the help of Trilogy Natural Products, a certified natural skincare company from New Zealand, you can follow the skincare regime that Kate Middleton uses to always be glowing. According to a recent interview with US Weekly, the mother of two prefers natural products and loves that the Trilogy skincare line is made without any potentially harmful retanoids. While the Kate effect has caused the inexpensive $21.95 Trilogy’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil Trilogy to be sold out at popular Brit makeup chain, Boots. But fear not, the Trilogy Natural Product line is now available on US shelves.

trilogy kateTrilogy was founded in 2002 by Kiwi eco-conscious sisters Catherine de Groot and Sara Gibbs and has developed an international reputation for producing ethical, sustainable, high-performance products. Trilogy prides itself on creating simple and unique blends of the purest plant oils and botanical extracts.

Trilogy is New Zealand’s first skincare brand to achieve NATRUE Natural Cosmetics Certification – a standard which guarantees only natural and organic ingredients, soft manufacturing processes and environmentally-friendly practices. In addition, Trilogy’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and Rosehip Oil Antioxidant + are certified organic by BioGro New Zealand Ltd, the country’s leading organic certifier and the only Australasian certification body accredited to certify products under NATRUE.

trilogy1Certified organic rosehip oil is the inspiration and core ingredient behind Trilogy’s natural 40-product skincare line. Derived from the wild rose bushes that grow high in the Chilean Andes, where the altitude and pollutant-free environment produce the highest quality rosehips, the oil’s benefits have been known by the indigenous population for hundreds of years.  Independent clinical studies have shown rosehip oil to be rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids and to be highly effective treatment for scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. Trilogy’s deeply moisturizing Certified Organic Rosehip Oil contains 80% of the essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6) and vitamins needed to renew and revitalize all skin types. This super-fine oil absorbs instantly, allowing the skin to breathe as it works to moisturize and condition skin restoring suppleness and supporting skin elasticity.

Trilogy’s collection includes: the Rosehip enriched face care range, Trilogy Age Proof (a premium line of products designed for maturing skin), Trilogy Sensitive (highly efficacious products providing a natural alternative for extra sensitive skin), Trilogy Body Care (including the multi-tasking Everything Balm).

The high performance Trilogy products, including the best-selling Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, are available and at Whole Foods Market nationwide.
