Beat the Holiday Rush

Ole’s Renewing Holiday Ritual

Here at OLEHENRIKSEN, the holidays are our favorite time of year. The promise of good friends, great food and the spirit of goodwill make this truly the most wonderful time of the year! We all want to look and feel our best, and self-care is even more important during this hectic season so be sure to make a date with yourself to re-energize!

Personally I like to build in an extra 30 minutes a few evenings a week to unwind and prep for the skin renewal process that happens when I sleep. No matter what products I am treating myself with that evening, I always start with a nice hot shower with rub n’ buff body salt scrub to exfoliate and increase micro-circulation. For my face, I like to treat my skin to POWER PEEL, my professional grade microdermabrasion and peel system. The first step is Almond Polish, to exfoliate while my pores are open from the hot steam, working this into my skin in a gentle circular motion. Next, I rinse and pat dry, to make my skin ready for lemon strip flash peel, a powerful multi-acid peel, over which I layer Chamomile Comfort Mask, a milky clay which calms and soothes the skin while the peel goes to work. After just 10 minutes, I rinse and it is truly amazing the immediate results I see in the mirror, my skin is firmer, radiant, my pores look tighter, and my skin’s texture is so smooth.

I wrap up my evening regimen with truth eye peel concentrate and ultimate lift eye gel to firm, smooth and hydrate my eyes, and a quick layering of invigorating night gel and sheer transformation to resurface and hydrate my face.   By morning I feel transformed and ready for whatever the holidays have in store.

Of course, I love mixing up my routine depending on the needs of my skin, but hope you enjoyed a glimpse into how I stay fresh for the holidays when I need an energizing kick! In the spirit of self care, I have created a complete at home luxury spa experience – the Ole La La Glow From Head To Toe Blockbuster Set. So if you are looking to try or give a variety of my personal favorites you can’t beat this perfectly package limited edition collection.

Product Spotlight: The Power of CC

Ole Henriksen, the skin guru to the stars, creates flawless, glowing faces that walk the red carpet and shine on the big screen. The secret? Healthy, radiant skin that’s not “covered up.” He believes in letting your natural skin be the star. When it came time to formulate his own version of the now iconic skincare multi-tasker, CC crème, or complexion correction crème, his perfect truth CC crèmeTM for face AND eyes, creates that flawless radiant complexion – but so much more. It’s jam packed with his staple, vitamin C (5 sources, that is!) and abundant in powerful antioxidants and peptides. This crème is your one-stop skincare stop to brighten, moisturize and plump skin while it is your daily protection against harmful UV rays.

Ole took the CC a step further and formulated a CC just to address the specific needs of the delicate eye area. Eyes show the first signs of aging (or a long night) and Ole always focuses on the eyes, they are the window to our souls.

Both the perfect truth CC crèmeTM SPF 30 and perfect truth CC eye crèmeTM SPF 15 are powered by our signature 5-source vitamin C complex to brighten your skin tone and tripeptide-5 to boost collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. We’ve also infused our formula with ferulic acid, a powerful antioxidant to provide environmental defense, sodium hyaluronate and ceramides to nourish and replenish moisture. Finally, this skin-quenching do-it-all features fine light-reflecting pigments to instantly diffuse imperfections. What more can you ask for in a product?

How to use perfect truth CC crèmeTM SPF 30:
Apply sheer layers and build for additional coverage. For boosted benefits, blend over truth serumTM collagen booster.

How to use perfect truth CC eye crèmeTM SPF 15: Apply to under eye area and gently blend evenly over clean skin. Ole’s Tip: My CC eye crème was formulated to provide essential hydration and anti-aging benefits to the delicate and specific needs of the under eye region, once you sweep on this brightening and correcting crème, you will find there is no need to use any another eye crème – it’s a multi-tasking miracle worker! Cheers, Ole

Ingredient Story: The Truth about Vitamin C

How do we love vitamin C? Let us count the ways…

Whether you’re a health guru or not, the anti-oxidant benefits of vitamin C are no secret. We all know the internal benefits of this little vitamin that packs a big punch for our immune systems, but did you ever stop and think about what vitamin C can do on the outside?

Here at OLEHENRIKSEN, we’re all about beauty from the inside out, which is why we include tried-and-true ingredients into our formulas. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin not only for your health, but has powerful topical benefits as well.

A leading example of the benefits of vitamin C topically can be seen in our Truth Serum Collagen Booster. This top rated product is Sephora’s best-selling anti-aging serum and contains 10% vitamin C.  Utilizing our proprietary Power C-5 complex, Truth Serum strengthens collagen while purifying and brightening your skin.  This daily vitamin for your face contains grapefruit, orange and rosehips extracts to repair damaged cells, sodium hyaluronate to bind moisture to the skin, vitamin E to restore and nourish your skin and powerful antioxidant green tea extract to protect against environmental aggressors!

This little bottle of Truth Serum is inspired by the best that nature has to offer to bring you smooth, beautiful skin. Use it daily on even the most sensitive skin. The delicious aroma makes it the best part of any beauty routine. Keep Truth Serum in your medicine cabinet next to your vitamins for a daily reminder to nourish your body inside and out.

Skin Care Tips for Wedding Season

Summer is known for the beach, vacation, fun times with family and friends – and WEDDINGS! So many brides make the decision to celebrate their special day when the weather is at its best.

EVERY bride is beautiful and glowing with happiness from the inside out. And having glowing skin can only add to a bride’s beauty. Here are some of my favorite skin care products for wedding season:

1) Exfoliation revs up circulation, deep cleanses the skin and eliminates toxins and impurities that may be trapped underneathe the skin’s surface. It also leaves skin luminous and smooth. Leading up to the big day, make sure to exfoliate twice a week with my Walnut Complexion Scrub.

2) Protecting your skin in the sun is so important for looking your best on your big day! For everyday wear, use Truth Revealed Super Creme SPF 15. For beach days or days when you will be laying out in the sun, use Protect the Truth SPF 50.

3) You also want to give your skin a little extra “oomph” for the wedding. The Lemon Strip Flash Peel is powered by lactic, glycolic and fruit acids to increase cell turnover, brighten skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Use twice a week to reveal younger and more radiant skin – you will glow!

A big congratulations to all of the beautiful brides getting married this summer. May your lives and marriages be filled with happiness and love!
