Ladies, ponder this: Collagen in women’s skin peaks around age 27. If that’s news to you, join the other troves of women whose jaws just dropped, too. Here’s another tidbit: Estrogen – that bountiful hormone that gets such a bad rap – actually stimulates collagen in the skin, making faces more luminous, elastic and wrinkle-free. Women rarely hear these not-so-fun facts, because the skincare industry blabs more about collagen injectables than all-natural collagen enhancers. If the latter is new to you, you’re not alone. And if you’re intrigued, you’re in for a treat. Two sisters – one a gynecologist specializing in hormone wellness, one a skincare pro – have lent their symbiotic knowledge for the betterment of skin. Their new line, VENeffect, features luxury face products packed with potent phytoestrogens – plant-derived estrogens that imitate the body’s natural estrogen and make skin more beautiful.
Meet VENeffect co-founder Cecil Booth at Neiman Marcus – the line’s exclusive retailer – at noon on Tuesday, March 5 at The Westchester. Hear Cecil divulge the little-known secrets behind the new line in her Master Class from noon to 2 p.m., and schedule one-on-one appointments between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m. Call (914) 428-2000 ext. 2053 for details.
