The freshest way to pep up your Monday: a mask that’s like a multivitamin for your skin
Vitamins help recharge a work-weary body, and the same goes for tired, dull skin—at least that’s the theory Lev Glazman, the co-founder of Fresh, is banking on. A big believer in vitamin injections to help combat fatigue, Glazman is also a longtime client of New-York-based celebrity nutritionist Oz Garcia. “Garcia creates concoctions based on my blood tests and what I was missing. I feel incredible!” enthuses Glazman. “I started to think, ‘If I can take care of my insides this way, can I create a blend of supplements and nutrients that will be good for the skin?’” Four years in the making, the brand’s latest mask—a highly concentrated medley of crushed oranges, lemons and clementines—attempts to answer Glazman’s question in the affirmative. The jammy, food-grade paste provides a double dose of gentle exfoliation: The fruits’ natural alpha-hydroxy acids dissolve dead cells, while the ground rinds slough skin smooth. Plus, the fruit salad of minerals and vitamins C, E and B5 tone, soften and brighten skin. Basically, it’s the best thing to happen to mornings since orange juice.
