The latest skincare addition to b-glowing has a very special story. Even before we experienced the products we were drawn to founder Britta Aragaon's amazing story as to what inspired her to create this small but effective skincare range. After watching her father suffer through the weakening effects to his hair, skin and nails due to cancer treatments as well as her own battle with Hodgkin's Disease, she realized that there were no products on the market that delivered what they promised. Sensitive skin types and even more so people who are dealing with disease typically can't find products that are gentle enough to be used on their skin and that won't further aggravate and inflame, even when they are marketed toward them. CV Skinlabs was born to meet this need.
CV Skinlabs specialize in creating products with safe and healing solutions that offer real relief from all types of skin conditions. Although the range is small, it is mighty in its purity and healing formulations that are truly worthy of being called safe. If you suffer from eczema, chronic dryness or looking for safe skincare products to use on medically treated skin this dermatologist and toxicologist formulated brand can be worn with peace of mind. Without further adieu, here they are:
The Body Repairing Lotion is an ultra soothing and hydrating lotion for a fragile and irritated skin, even one compromised by chemotherapy, dermatitis or more serious skin conditions. Calming Moisture is a face, neck and scalp moisturizer that soothes and hydrates flushed skin recovering from post chemotherapy procedures, microdermabrasion and chemical peels to restore even skin-tone and a healthy radiance. CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray has been getting some amazing press this summer because of it's ability to magically heal bug bites, sunburns, and giving cooling relief for itchy skin. Simply spritz this refreshing spray with natural ingredients on face and/or body instantly feel soothed. The Restorative Skin Balm is an advanced therapy for severely sunburned and wounded skin. This protective salve can be put anywhere dry or chapped, from nails, cuticles, new scars, etc. All of these products are designed to really care for your skin and ease any discomfort without having to worry about the possibility of further irritation.
Models appear to have glamorous, jet-setting lifestyles as they fly from one Fashion Week to the next but little do we know how traumatic this is on their skin. After all, their face is put through the ringer and doesn't have a lot of breathing time when it's constantly having makeup reapplied to it every hour. Makeup artists witness dry patches, redness and faces covered in pimples on a constant basis. So it's not unusual for makeup artists to apply their favorite skincare items to rescue model's traumatized skin behind the curtain.
Makeup artist Kristen Arnett, fashion week veteran was able to remove unbudging, full kabuki makeup with ease and without traumatizing the skin using RMS Beauty's Coconut Oil. Featured on wellangoodnyc.com, more and more makeup artists are stocking their kit with natural skincare alternatives because they find they're the best method to treat overworked skin without adding extra irritation. Other natural beauty products that made their way behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week was CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture. This to-the-rescue moisturizer instantly minimizes redness and hydrates parched skin despite what has been done to it during Fashion Week.
