NYFW: Nancy Lichtenstein Hits Orlane Lounge!!
Nancy Lichtenstein takes a break from the tents and fashions to talk about beauty — and how to maintain it– during NYFW with Orlane.
My next stop at New York Fashion Week was to check out the Orlane Lounge at the Bryant Park Hotel. Orlane was providing weary journalists a place to rest and debuting their newest line, Anagenèse 25+, intended to prevent aging at the source way before any visual signs of it were showing. I spoke with Denise, Orlane’s national trainer, who explained how successful anti-aging really begins with prevention, and how Orlane accomplishes this.
“Most 25 year olds aren’t doing anything with their skin other than cleansing and moisturizing,” she says, “but it’s at 25 that aging starts. Hormone levels drop and cell regeneration diminishes, but you don’t see it on the surface until you hit 40 or so. We’re dealing with the causes so you don’t have to suffer from the symptoms later.”
The Anagenèse 25+ line prolongs the skin’s youthfulness by stimulating natural growth factors and microcirculation. It’s intended for daily use by women from the ages of 25 through 35, in conjunction with the use of Orlane’s suncare line to prevent sun damage. The system is simple enough for the young woman on the go–serum, treatment cream and eye cream–and like all of Orlane’s products, is petroleum-free and is suitable for sensitive skin.
I’m not a huge fan of French skincare in general because so many of the lines are so highly fragranced, but I’m happy to report that Orlane is subtly scented by its top grade natural ingredients like ginseng and coconut oil. I really found myself wishing they’d come out with this line 10 years ago, when I could take advantage of it. Nevertheless, they sent me off with samples of the Morning Recovery Concentrate First-Time Fighting Serum, First Time-Fighting Care Eye Contour, and First Time-Fighting Care Cream, and I’m giving them to my little sister to test drive.
As for those of us who already have damage from stress? The price tag is steep but there’s an Orlane miracle product I’m dying to try; it’s called Hypnotherapy and was created by a dermatologist and psychologist with the intent of removing signs of emotional trauma on the skin and relaxing it (not physically but emotionally– the end result is a smoother, more even skin tone) to prevent further stress. Orlane also provided a complimentary palm reading from a celebrity psychic at the lounge and she told me I’m going to start two new businesses, buy a second home and have two more kids! If any of this is true I’m going to need the Hypnotherapy stat!
