People are always asking me why I don’t make an eye cream, or a night cream, or a neck cream. How come we have only two creams? Our retailers say more creams would fill up their shelf space and be good for business. So why don’t we make more of them?
The fact is, there is no need for extra creams.
If a moisturizer works well on the thinner, delicate skin under your eyes, it will work just as well everywhere else; and if it is not good enough for delicate parts of your face, why use it anywhere at all?
The reason you see a different result from moisturizing at night is because your skin is shielded from environmental stressors while you are sleeping, and your body goes into healing and restoration mode. That’s what makes the difference to your skin, not the different cream that you use at night.
A good moisturizer should work all over your face, neck and decollete, day and night. You only need one that works.
You can easily tell if your moisturizer is working. It should plump up your fine lines right away, and your skin should feel silky-smooth and look radiant - immediately. Also, it should keep getting better.
The solution is not to buy more creams for different parts of your face, or for different times of day or night. The solution is to find a moisturizer that works. Quality makes the difference, not quantity.
The two moisturizers we make are blended from the finest organic ingredients, rich in antioxidants and anti-aging factors, to provide potent skincare with results you can see right away. One is for normal skin, the other is for especially sensitive skin.
But remember, you only need one of them. Beautiful skin is for quality lovers.
It’s very tricky when people ask you how old you think they are. I learned the hard way. SO EASY TO GET IT WRONG! A few years ago, after a speaking engagement, a lovely woman came up to me, and asked that loaded question, “How old do you think I am?” I told her I don’t like to guess [...]

Plane travel is very drying, and dehydrated skin looks tired and dull. ALCOHOL It's best to completely avoid alcohol on the plane.

I modeled for an airline in the 70s. For a while, I flew all over the world with them. The way airports and planes are today, doesn’t that sound awful? But actually it was completely wonderful. I was blessed with unlimited tickets, and I saw so many beautiful places. And I know that if you’re under 50, it may be [...]

Lotte Barnholdt BEAUTY THAT ENDURES Two of the most beautiful women I have ever met were Sophia Loren and Jihan Sadat, who was a dazzling First Lady of Egypt. What makes these women so extraordinary was that their faces reveal their innermost being. Their souls shine through for all to see. There are so many beautiful women - at first glance. [...]
YOUNG SKIN As a model I was always in a panic of breaking out before a shoot or a show as I suffered from acne. Dermatologists treated me with antibiotics and harsh soaps designed to get rid of the excess oils. Neither worked. Drying soaps and alcohol-based skincare actually stimulate oil production and irritate the blemishes. Now I know that eating a [...]
ANTI AGING Coconut oil is rich in easily absorbed anti-aging compounds that your skin will love. On your skin, it forms medium-chain fatty acids with antiviral and antibacterial properties, which stop free radicals from damaging the connective tissue of your skin. This helps your complexion look firmer, softer and smoother. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, blemishes and liver spots. It promotes a [...]
TURMERIC Long used in sacred wedding rites in India, turmeric contains curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory. Chronic inflammation ages your body and your skin, and turmeric can help to calm that down. It’s also a very strong antioxidant, fighting against aging free radicals, and even stimulating your body’s own antioxidant mechanisms. When cooking with turmeric, make sure to add a little black pepper. [...]
