The Glow

I’m a skincare junkie, always curious about the latest elixirs and potions that allow inner glow to shine through. The more I learn about the chemicals and endocrine disruptors in most skincare, the more passionate I’ve become about finding products that are safe, deeply nourishing, and also effective. Our skin is the largest organ in our body. It’s our interface with the world. Our bodies absorb everything we smear on it.

I found Joanna Vargas when I was beat up from a bike crash and looking for some serious skincare. Confidence low, I was thinking about doing something invasive for the first time—botox, etc—and researching alternatives. Her non-invasive anti-aging radio frequency Forever Facials are legendary. I splurged on a series over a few moths with my favorite technician/therapist/cheerleader/beautiful soul Sarah Karaolides and started using JV serums and products, and fell in love. My favorite is the Rejuvenating Serum, but I’m starting to replace other skincare favorites with more of her serums, cleansers, eye and day cream. They feel amazing, smell great (straight up natural botanicals), and, quite simply, glow. (And the masks are ideal for travelling!)

I reached out to the JV salon for a discount code to pass along the love to you. You can order on Amazon with discount code LGOPLAEX for 20% off.

If you are in NYC and want the most blissful hour in the city and a lasting glow, book a Triple Crown facial with Sarah, Elena, or any of the team of magicians. Then go create a red carpet to walk.
