Bonjour mes amis!
We at A French Touch Salon are very excited for two reasons:
1) Summer Beauty Escape is TOMORROW and we cannot wait to see all of your lovely faces, (not to mention enjoying cupcakes and champagne!)
2) We got an interview with THE Jan Marini, and we get to share it with you! (We have to admit, we were a bit star struck).
We got so much information from Jan yesterday that we decided to keep some to ourselves for now (I wouldn’t tantalize you without good cause), but, given that tomorrow we’ll be discussing products with our lovely Jan Marini representatives, we thought we’d share some of Jan’s favorites with you today! Who better to speak about her products than (the beautiful, illustrious, influential) Jan herself?
First and foremost, it’s important to understand that Jan LOVES her products. She says that she designs products for herself as much as anyone else, which means that she is quite literally taking care of your skin the way she takes care of her own. What better quality guarantee is there than that? That being said, there are products that she favors (and we should all probably take heed, because this woman is just the picture of healthy skin)
First amongst the products we discussed with Jan was, of course, her SKIN CARE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. It seems that, even for Jan, the Skin Care Management System is the foundation to healthy, glowing, and blemish free skin. She benefits from its myriad of benefits, including the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and acne (which, unbelievably, Jan used to suffer from! But more on that in a later post). There’s a reason that this product was voted the Beauty Choice Product Winner of New Beauty Magazine–its transformative results are clinically proven, and Jan herself is a poster child for its effectiveness.
Additionally, Jan utilizes her Age Intervention Regeneration Booster and Age Intervention Prime. Both products target signs of aging (loss of elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles), while the Age Intervention Prime does double duty—serving as a primer for a finished, polished appearance. Jan admits to preferring Age Intervention Prime to makeup, except for occasional television appearances. The Regneration Booster is incredibly effective at minimizing pores, softening fine lines and wrinkles and evening out skin tone. In a clinical study, 94% of participants saw overall improvement in the texture and appearance of their skin. Age Intervention Prime is fantastic because it contains peptides and CoEnzyme Q10 to target redness and fine lines, producing an airbrushed, long lasting look that actually improves skin through continued use. It combines advanced anti-aging and antioxidant properties with the added benefit of a primer.
Jan is also a BIG fan of Retinol Plus in a way that we highly recommend—in addition to utilizing Retinol Plus’ extreme anti-aging benefits on her face, she uses it on her neck , which we all know can be a trouble zone if we’re not consistent with our attention to this delicate tissue. For this reason, Retinol Plus should be used on the neck area on alternating nights. This product is so effective that it has been described as an “anti-aging cocktail” by New Beauty Magazine. It contains a highly concentrated dose of Retinol, plus Peptides and Antioxidants, which clearly can benefit the skin of your neck in addition to your face. (Feel free to get as creative as Jan with its usage).
For her nightly routine, Jan swears by both Cleanzyme Cleanser and Skinzyme Mask, for a gentle, but deep-acting exfoliating treatment before applying night-care. These products make use of green-papaya enzyme which breaks down cellular debris build up, allowing products to penetrate much more efficiently.
Another product she uses in a unique way is Enlighten +, which she rubs on the backs of her hands and up her arms (likely to prevent and reduce any age marks, which is brilliant of her-excuse the pun). Enlighten Plus is famous for lessening the appearance of hyper-pigmentation from years of photo-damage. In addition to actively addressing any spotting that is already present, it prevents any future formation of damage by inhibiting excess melanin production in the skin.
Finally, she tops it all off with her Tinted Sunscreen, protecting her skin with a unique broad spectrum SPF33 complex, while harnessing the benefit of its antioxidant power that scavenges free radicals that cause skin aging.If you have yet to use the Antioxidant Sunscreen, I (and obviously Jan) highly recommend it. It smells delicious, it absorbs quickly because of a patented micro-sponge technology (no oily face!) and works actively to both prevent sun damage while promoting healthier skin. Jan’s Tinted Antioxidant Sunscreen has the added benefit of adding a light touch of color, perfect if you don’t want full foundation.
And remember to include the newer Marini SPF45 Physical Protectant for a paraben-free, chemical-free option.
So there you have it! Some of Jan’s favorite products, because even she can’t choose just a few. Luckily, you don’t have to choose just a few either, because we will be offering great specials and raffles tomorrow (plus if you bring a friend you both get 20% off a Jan Marini product of choice).
We can’t wait to see you all tomorrow, and we hope you’re as excited about these products as we (and Jan!) are.
