Fall in Love with Erno Laszlo Again! In Store Event 10/25
Posted on October 9, 2018
Goodbye to summer heat and full body sweating, frizzy hair, and running makeup.
We won’t miss you much…except for the lazy days and cloudless blue skies and the natural help your humidity gave our skin’s dewy glow.
But, now it’s time to take action against the lack of humidity and colder temperatures of fall and winter.
We need to boost our hydrating beauty regimen to avoid dull skin, premature (or otherwise) fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of bounce and glow. Here are some steps to take:
1.) Cleanse morning and night – Find a routine you can stick to. This may include a single foaming or creamy cleanser from the Organic Pharmacy, a nighttime balm from the Queen of Clean, Eve Lom, or the iconic double cleanse of cleansing oil and face bar from Erno Laszlo.
2.) Incorporate exfoliation in your routine. – Exfoliate with a salt or sugar body scrub to wash away flaky dull skin, soften skin and help moisturizers penetrate deeper.Find a gentle facial exfoliant to use several times a week like One Fine Day Sugar Scrub from FarmHouse Fresh or Juara Radiance Enzyme Scrub.
See the Pacific Sea Salt Scrubs from ODE.
3.) Use a facial toner. A simple sweep of toner will prepare your face for deeper penetration of your serums and creams and whisk away any residual dirt, makeup or residue from your cleansers. Try the pH balancing Citrus Toner from LATHER or the Oasis Hydrating Tonic from ODE.
4.) Always moisturize - And then do it again. Apply moisturizing products immediate after bathing or showering and then again, at night. Check out ODE Natural Beauty
or LATHER Body Care.
Apply treatments and moisturizers immediately after washing the face while the skin is still warm.
5.) Plan on masking at least once a week. A mask concentrates on your specific skin concern such as hydration, detoxing, brightening, or clarifying. You get instant results whether you use a cream, a clay or a sheet mask.
6.) Turn down the temperature - Avoid hot baths or showers. Hot temperatures dry out the skin and break capillaries. Keep water "hand hot."
7.) Always protect your skin. Even on the coldest, gloomiest days, UVA rays penetrate the cloud cover to cause sunburns, skin cancer, and speed up aging. And, don't forget to reapply.
Follow these suggestions and you'll maintain well-hydrated, radiant skin all year long.

The Laszlo Glow
Imagine telling the most beautiful women in the world, “You need to wash your face.”
That's exactly what Dr. Erno Laszlo did and it made him one of the most sought after dermatologists in New York and Hollywood.
Erno Laszlo, a pioneer in 20th Century skin care, believed beautiful skin was no miracle. Beautiful skin, he said, was the result of a commitment to a proper cleansing ritual and the use of prescribed skincare products to match his client's concerns - a bespoke approach to skincare.
The Age of Cold Cream and One Face Cream Fits All
If they did wash their face, it was with harsh soaps that stripped the skin of natural oils. Their moisturizers were almost always one face cream fits all. Dr. Laszlo put a stop to that.
Erno Laszlo to the Rescue
Erno Laszlo introduced American women to the concept of the Double Cleanse with its facial cleansing oil, beauty cleansing bar and its splashing technique. He analyzed women's (and men's) skin giving them precise techniques for their personal cleansing and prescribed the exact products for their particular skin type and concern. The results were startling. Beautiful, radiant skin emerged everywhere.
Thus was born “The Laszlo Glow.” And, everyone wanted it.
The Influencers of the day, celebrities, socialites and stars of Broadway and Hollywood, flocked to his office. Everyone from Greta Garbo and Katharine Hepburn to Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe were his devotees.
Audrey Hepburn once famously said, “I owe 50 per cent of my beauty to my mother and the other 50 per cent to Erno Laszlo."
Each Double Cleanse is concern specific and full of powerful actives to deliver instant, visible results.
Proper cleansing is the foundation of beautiful skin. When the compliments start, just say, “It’s the Erno Laszlo Glow.”

As trees turn from their summer green to the more dazzling colors of fall, websites, retailers and even football teams follow suit by turning themselves brilliant pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
But, we need to be aware every month of the year.
Awareness is our first important weapon against this dreadful disease. We need awareness to educate ourselves because early detection makes the difference in having a successful outcome. Knowing our family history, doing monthly self-exams from your 30’s on and getting annual mammograms after age 40 are important pro-active and life-saving steps.
Lifestyle can also affect your risk for breast cancer. All the rules for good health apply: Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, exercise, and wear sunscreen every sunny or partly sunny day of the year. Yes, any sunny day of the year. Limit alcohol, eat a well-balanced diet, don’t smoke and read the labels on your skin care products. Why? Because our skin absorbs over 60% of what we put on it. It stands to reason topical substances will have a direct impact on our skin health as well as on our looks.
Skin Health during Breast Cancer Treatments
Many of us know about the chemotherapy and radiation side effects of nausea and fatigue but don’t realize that our skin can really suffer when we undergo these difficult but life-saving therapies. Chemotherapy causes skin to become very dry and irritated and the target areas of radiation can become red and feel burned.
Patients rate skin irritation and dry skin as their most annoying side effects. These side effects are not just an annoyance. Dry and irritated skin can become inflamed, rash-y, uncomfortable and susceptible to infection. All skin reactions need to be discussed with your healthcare team as most skin reactions are expected and can indicate the therapy is working.
What Can You Do to Ease the Discomfort?
If you don’t have a skin care routine already, it’s a good idea to get one before you start your therapy. A good routine can ease the effects by preparing your skin before, during and after treatment. The number one rule is to be gentle with your skin. Know your ingredients and use the best possible skincare products you can afford. It’s perfectly fine to use over the counter beauty brands as long as they don’t irritate.
Erno Laszlo to the Rescue
When your skin is dehydrated and stressed, it’s recommended you move away from lotions to more hydrating creams and balms. I want to tell you about the Erno Laszlo Phormula 3-9 Collection because this line was specifically created to promote the repair and healing of stressed and dehydrated skin.
The most famous cream in the line is Phormula 3-9 Balm, a rich reparative moisturizer and healing balm. The ultimate remedy for scars, wounds, burns and sun exposed skin, this iconic nourishing balm works to strengthen skin and reduce irritation. Perfected over almost 100 years of research and development, and used in its many iterations by some of the most iconic beauties of the last century including Marilyn Monroe, this highly advanced formula restores skin that is stressed, dulled and dried by lifestyle and environmental factors.
How It Works
Formulated with rich botanical oils and advanced nourishing active ingredients, the 3-9 Balm creates a healing Health Dome™ around the skin to improve oxygenation and reverse dehydration. It’s like a second skin. The formula's smoothing and hydrating properties are effectively and quickly absorbed, boosting your skin's own natural healing properties. It reduces irritation, redness and puffiness. You can use the balm for face and body, as a spot treatment or all over. Use it to treat everything from dry patches to sunburn and to improve post-surgical scars. It’s very effective in treating burns, too and is fragrance free.
What It Does
• Heals: Reduces scarring and helps to heal burns with rich, tropical Tamanu Oil that boosts skin health while soothing irritation and inflammation.
• Restores: Glycosaminoglycans promote collagen production for increased smoothness and elasticity.
• Protects: Rich formula seals in vital nutrients and protects against harsh environment aggressors.
Erno Laszlo PHORMULA 3-9 REPAIR CREAM Daily Help for Stressed Skin
Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream is a daily nutritional supplement for the skin, offering superior hydration, strong anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties for renewed skin cell energy and a more hydrated, youthful appearance. The 3-9 Repair Cream delivers healing and helps diminish scars by encouraging strong cell turnover.
What It Does

Erno Laszlo PHORMULA 3-9 REPAIR SERUM A Liquid Therapuetic Bandage
A daily radiance-boosting serum that encourages healthy skin metabolism and strong skin cell turnover for improved brightness, texture and glow. Collagen and elastin production is boosted, resulting in greater elasticity, hydration, and evenness of tone. This strengthening formula acts as a liquid therapeutic bandage, gently releasing nutrient-rich active ingredients into the skin to elicit the skin’s natural healing response.
What It Does
• Brightens: Extract of Kombucha improves skin clarity and radiance.

The Make-up trend for Spring Brides 2013 seems to be leaning toward a soft, natural, sleek and simplistic look. Not only in make-up but in the overall theme of the bride in general.
How many bridal magazines have you gazed at and thought to yourself, I want to look just like THAT on my wedding day!
The thing is, no matter how much make-up you do or don't wear on your special day, it won't mean much if your canvas is not picture perfect. And by canvas, I mean YOUR SKIN.
In an article that appeared in Australian Vogue in January 2013:
Maya Bilalis, who owns a Medispa in Sydney’s Woollahra, has seen her share of bridal beauty meltdowns and believes it’s best to embark on a dermal overhaul well before your wedding.
“Depending on the condition your skin is in, I recommend creating a skin regimen three to six months before your actual wedding day: it won’t work to start a week before.”
#2 on Maya's list of 8 Steps to Glowing, Aisle Ready Skin says:
2. Think big picture
“Think about the skin all over your body, not just your face. What kind of dress are you wearing on the day? If it’s backless, you may need to give your back a facial or your legs may need exfoliation and preparation if changing into a cocktail dress.”
#6 on her list talks about your skincare routine:
6. Amp up your skincare
“Use products that contain skin-renewing AHAs/DHAs and antioxidants that fight free radicals to protect your skin. The most skin-effective vitamins for perfect skin are vitamin A/C/E."
Elemental Herbology's Cell Food is an intensive, powerhouse dose of antioxidants and reparative nutrients helps stimulate collagen and elastin production to restore vitality and radiance and reduces the effects of aging such as dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
Erno Laszlo's Luminous C10 Night Treatment works while you sleep. The skin recovers its natural balance in order to recharge its youthful brightness. Speed up the process with this illuminating night moisturizer. With 10% Vitamin C, the highest allowable dose, it works overnight to repair discoloration and environmental damage and stimulate collagen production for brighter, younger looking skin.
And don't forget those last minute glamorous finishing touches!
Erno Laszlo Absolute Finish Foundation is absolutely amazing! You get that "porcelain finish", although I definately recommend using a foundation brush with this one.
And lastly, the Diamond Dusting Silk in Tryst by Lady Primrose : A simple twist unlocks the brush and releases the dusting silk into the bristles. Easy to use and travel with, this acrylic handled dusting brush is refillable with your favorite Lady Primrose dusting silk. The dusting silk inside the handle contains finely crushed chamomile and marigold flowers, blended with silk and plant extracts. Along with a delicate fragrance, this powder contains a beautiful shimmer that is sure to turn heads.

Imagine for a moment the ultra glamorous movie stars and female icons of the 1950’s and 60’s. Such awe inspiring beauties as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly and the fiercest of them all Jacqueline Kennedy O’Nassis. Their photos were taken BEFORE the age of air brushing and Photoshop, so when they were having a "bad skin day", well, what was a girl to do? They each owned their own particular brand of beauty, and I want to share with you their secret….Erno Laszlo.
A little history:
In 1921, Erno Laszlo completes his studies in skin pathology and skin disease with Professor Max Joseph, "the father of modern dermatology".
In 1927, Dr. Laszlo heals Hungary's Princess Stephanie of acute acne, restoring her self esteem. He also successfully treats Frida Gombaszogl, one of Hungary's most celebrated actresses after she is shot in the face at point blank range by a rejected suitor.
Encouraged by his successes, Dr. Laszlo opens the first Erno Laszlo Institute of scientific cosmetology in Budapest.
Years later, after opening a skin institute on Fifth Avenue in New York and building a clientele that included Hollywood's most elite, Women's Wear Daily would announce that Erno Laszlo skin care was "in demand" and the most "pivotal line now".
Marilyn Monroe was not only a devotee of the line but also a close personal friend of the Dr.'s. When newspapers around the world carried photos of her death bed, jars of Erno Laszlo Active Phelityl Cream could be seen on her nightstand.
During the 1960's, the list of clients seeking treatment from Erno Laszlo grows to include Jacqueline Kennedy and her sister, and the luminous Audrey Hepburn who is famously quoted as saying "I owe 50% of my beauty to my mother and 50% to Erno Laszlo."
In 2009, Laszlo again revolutionized the skincare market with the introduction of its Firmarine line which contains the super- nutrient algae Spirulina Maxima to firm, nourish and moisturize the skin.
And today, in 2013, the rich tradition continues. The famous Erno Laszlo Institute has re-opened and will also be featuring a display of some of Marilyn Monroe's personal effects, including that iconic jar on her nightstand.
I, personally, have fallen in LOVE with this line. I have been truly amazed by the intense healing power of the 3-9 Formula cream, the Timeless Skin Serum, Hydraphel Day Cream, and one of my favorites, the Phelityl Cleansing Bar. It's soap! Yes, soap. I have always just felt, I don't know, cleaner, when I wash with soap and this bar washes away ALL traces of my make-up so Im not left with those yucky brown streaks on my white towels when I dry my face.
The best news? I am offering FREE skin care consultations with the Erno Laszlo line during January and February. Hopefully you are reading this and live in the Richmond area. If you don't live in the area, don't worry, we aren't leaving you out! A $150 qualifying purchase on the web site will get you a free gift of the Firmarine cream! A $100 value! BUT, not only am I offering the FREE consultation, if you make a purchase of at least $150, I will be giving FREE mini-facials! I give a pretty good facial massage, if I do say so myself!
