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.
