    SKIN IN FASHION

    "Her [Irene’s] products, based on ingredients cultivated on the Sicilian family farm, are formulated, as she likes to point out, to be the best Mediterranean skin diet. On the menu, the best of “nutraceuticals”: pomegranates, almonds, oranges, lemons, pistachios... whose richness in vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants is widely recognised. But the recipe is intended to be more elaborate. If the natural extracts are the starting ingredients, the extremely effective formulations, are based on the work of a solid in-house scientific team. Thus, hibiscus seeds were designed to create Myoxinol™, a patented active ingredient whose botox-like effect on deep wrinkles is more than convincing for mature skin."

    10 BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO BUY IN NOVEMBER

    When a skin product is awarded six times, its effects are certainly astonishing. The proof with the Irene Forte mask is that it hydrates the skin for 12 hours and immediately plumps it. Olive and rice oil fractions—rich in skin-improving nutrients and antioxidants—plus provitamin B5 help revitalise and protect the skin. Pistachio, pumpkin seed and avocado oils replenish the skin's natural moisture barrier for smooth and supple skin. It's a true comforting cocoon for the skin, which you can even leave on all night to wake up with a radiant complexion.

    Best Wrinkle Creams to Plump Fine Lines 

    Myoxinol, a bio-peptide extracted from hibiscus seeds, is the reason why the Italian-made Irene Forte Prickly Pear Face Cream works so well for wrinkles. The ingredient works in a similar manner as injectables by targeting deep-set forehead wrinkles and expression lines that pop up as we age. Plus, it contains hyaluronic acid, which Dr. Oyetakin says "temporarily fills in the spaces between collagen and elastin fibers, giving the appearance of smooth skin," and vitamin E for a stronger barrier, and subsequently, less moisture loss.

    Dr Ferri has run a number of studies illustrating that the effectiveness of many natural active ingredients actually diminishes when it goes beyond a certain percentage in a formula. So, we believe in putting the precise amount to deliver the most effective benefits while avoiding harmful side effects, and don’t believe in putting in a higher percentage just for marketing purposes. We advocate the concept of psico-cosmesi, meaning that what we put on our skin benefits us emotionally and thus physically. The organoleptic properties of a product are vital to achieve this. - Irene Forte

    I RECOMMEND THE DELICIOUSLY MILKY ALMOND FACE SCRUB

    Billed as “the Mediterranean diet for skin”, the 32-product Irene Forte collection features own-grown olive oil, nuts, herbs and fruit brought together with oligomineral water from Sicily’s Madonie Regional Natural Park… I can recommend the deliciously milky Almond Face Scrub (£69 for 50ml); it gently smooths and nourishes dry complexions using avocado and olive oils in combination with almond and hazelnut granules. Another standout is the Rose Face Oil (£99 for 30ml), whose freshness surprised me; it’s gloriously light-feeling but left my skin wonderfully soft.

    I WENT PLASTIC-FREE WITH MY SKINCARE REGIME FOR A WEEK

    The bottle is made from recycled glass and all outer packaging is made from 100 per cent recycled fibres with vegetable and soya-based inks, so it’s a win on that front. Hibiscus is apparently known as nature’s Botox, and this serum sank in quickly and left my skin feeling dewy and soft to the touch, but not sticky. There was a brief but intense tingling feeling, which reassured me it was actively working, and it felt luxurious. Yes, please.

Her line is really cool because she worked with this Italian woman who has been studying this for decades and is a natural scientist of skin care. They have this serum…you put it on your skin, and you feel like you’re in a botanical garden and you’re the lead orchid of the orchestra in the botanical garden. I don’t know how else to describe it!
