Last week I had the amazing opportunity to fly out to Grand Rapids, Michigan where skin care and cosmetic company Artistry taught me, and several other beauty editors, about the science behind skin care. And wow, there was a lot to learn!
We started out getting simple tests that measured the moisture and elasticity of our skin. Then we headed off to the research and development lab where we had up close (and scary!) photos taken of our skin to show the start of sun damage, pigmentation and wrinkles...
While scientists were processing our results and creating a skin care regimen for us, we took an exclusive tour of the factory where the products are made and shipped worldwide. We even had the opportunity to make our own products like this lipstick (above) that we named Rustic Red and a moisturizing cream with SPF (because that is, of course, the most important product to wear).
After analyzing our results the Artistry scientists met with us tell us the outcome of our skin tests and what products we should use on our skin. For me, they suggested the Balancing Skin Care System to use twice a day every day, as well as the Pore Cleansing Masque
once a week.
Then, we were treated to facials and tried out some Artistry cosmetics (I loved their Absolute Oil Control Foundation) before taking off on the company's private jet back to New York!
