Erno Laszlo: A Visionary in Skincare

Bookmark and Share Posted on 04/02/2012

Erno Laszlo Hungarian dermatologist Erno Laszlo is one of the best-known and most respected visionaries in the skin care industry. In addition to creating the first dermatological skin care line in the world, he also invented skin care practices and rules that ladies still follow today, such as maintaining a daily skin care ritual.

While in medical school, Erno Laszlo specialized in the pathology and care of skin diseases, and he took a particular interest in facial disfigurements that resulted from war injuries. Laszlo’s big break came when he treated Belgium’s Princess Stéphanie, who believed she was the ultimate eyesore. After trying Erno Laszlo’s prescribed treatment, she experienced a noticeable transformation in the look and feel of her skin.

 

Laszlo opened his first skin care institute in Budapest but moved to the U.S. in 1939, at the onset of World War II. He opened a new Erno Laszlo Institute in a building on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and continued to create skin care formulas that beautified and healed.

Laszlo didn’t accept new clients; he only accepted recommendations. His client list included those at the top of the rich-and-famous A-list, including Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Gloria Vanderbilt, Grace Kelley and mobster Truman Capote. Erno Laszlo’s assistants dressed in black and reported that the doctor was not above throwing a client out of his office if she didn’t follow (or lied about following) his prescribed daily regimen. While the doctor was strict and used harsh, blunt words, his clients always came back for more because they knew he was always ultimately right.

In 1966, Erno Laszlo made the wishes of everyday housewives come true when he entered the retail market. Today, the Erno Laszlo company continues to carry on the tradition of creating and introducing cutting-edge products consumers can incorporate into their own personal skin care rituals.

Clarisonic Skincare for the Eyes: What is the Opal Sonic Infusion System? » -

Clarisonic Skincare Opal Sonic Infusion SystemShop the full Clarisonic collection here!

The eyes are often one of the most neglected parts of the skin care routine. Sure, you might remove your eye makeup every night and use an eye cream to stave off fine lines, but failure to do much more can add years to the look of your face. To help address this issue, the Clarisonic Skincare line now includes a sonic infusion system called Opal.

It’s natural to not do much around your eyes during your skin care regimen. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and most products come with a warning that you should avoid contact with your peepers. The Clarisonic Skincare Opal Sonic Infusion System is different, however. Resembling the size of a computer mouse, the Opal gently cleanses the skin around your eyes by tapping it at 125 sonic movements per second.

 

«Less is More with Rosie Jane Perfume -

Rosie Jane Perfume Leila Lou Do you run past the makeup counters in department stores because you can’t stand the smell of overly strong perfumes that all seem to meld into one scent? Makeup artist Rosie Johnston understands that sensitivity and created her Rosie Jane perfume line just for you.

Rosie Jane Cosmetics’ signature scent is Leila Lou, in honor of Rosie Jane’s daughter. The simple, light fragrance of Rosie Jane perfume features notes of pear blossoms, tangerines and fresh-cut grass, culminating in a sweet smell that captures all of your favorite springtime scents in one small bottle. The Rosie Jane perfume comes in the form of a spray eau de parfum or a roll-on scent made of 100 percent essential oils. Unlike some perfumes that fade after a couple of hours, Leila Lou’s sweet, musky pear scent lasts all day. Roll or spray a bit of the perfume onto your wrists and behind your ears in the morning, and enjoy the fragrance all day.
