Beauty is a lifestyle. It’s a place, a loved one, it’s a moment in time. You can find beauty in your mind when you close your eyes and imagine all the possibilities life has to offer. And in a blink, beauty is right in front of you when you open your eyes and take it all in. I read a book once where a little girl waved at trees because when they blew in the breeze she thought they were waving at her. As much as the wind makes me feel a little chaotic at times, when it’s perfectly breezy, I can’t help smiling and secretly waving back at the trees too. It instantly fills me with gratitude that spills over and onto the rest of my day.
Shiseido‘s inspiring new campaign is about much more than discovering a new product, it’s about getting in touch with a mindset and feeling empowered by it, and I love that! Their message and branding Life Unfiltered is about beauty, and beauty is about harmony and balance and being open to see all of the magnificent beauty that surrounds us at all times. It’s not always easy to think beyond ourselves, but it’s truly amazing when we are aware in the moment and taking it all in, waving back at the trees, don’t you think?
And speaking of beautiful things, isn’t the Ultimune bottle so pretty? I’ve been using the product for a little over a month now, and I’m hooked! Check out my 20 Favorite Skincare Tips for Radiant Skin.
Below is a little bit of info behind this amazing new approach to skincare.
Based on two decades of skin immunity research, Shiseido introduces the first technology in the world to directly approach the immunity of the skin. In 1991, Shiseido began its skin immunity research partnership with the Harvard Cutaneous Biology Research Center (CBRC) and uncovered the complex relationship between Langerhans cells and the skin’s condition.
Accounting for 5% of all cells in the epidermal layer of the skin, the hard-working Langerhans cells form an intricate network that cover your entire epidermis, detecting foreign substances from the outside and warning other cells to fire up their immune functions.
Shiseido discovered that by addressing the function of the Langerhans cells, skin’s immunity and strength is improved and skin can better deflect the immune- decreasing damage of aging, emotional stress, and external hazards like dryness, air pollution and UV rays.
The new Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate strengthens skin leaving it smooth, resilient, and glowing with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the formula is infused with a relaxing and mood-elevating green floral fragrance called ImuCalm Compound which includes Rose and Lotus to reduce stress and help repair the skin’s barrier function.
Do any of you already use Shiseido products and love your results too?
Immediately following application, skin feels full and supple with a silky smooth surface, and in one week, skin appears to glow more than ever. After four weeks of use, 87% of women reported that their skin became stronger including:
• Improved firmness and resilience, making wrinkles less visible
• Skin was more refined for a visibly younger appearance
• Skin felt stronger and more resilient to external aggressors
• Skin appeared smoother, healthier and more radiant
• Ultimune Complex – targets the function of Langerhans cells and promotes collagen production using a combination of CM Glucan, a yeast, Bulgarian Rose Water, and a highly moisturizing humectant.
• Botanicals – a unique anti-inflammatory botanical blend includes antioxidant, Gingko Biloba Leaf and Wild Thyme as well as Asian botanical, Japanese Shiso, to protect the skin from impurities and oxidized sebum.
I like to surround myself with things I find beautiful, which is why my office and studio are brimming with colors I adore and things that inspire me to get creative and live a beautiful life. How do you find beauty every day?
