More Than Skin Deep

Lu­cia Mag­nani Skin Care, in­fused with min­er­als found in the an­cient wa­ters of Italy, is chang­ing beauty from the in­side out

Hong Kong Tatler - - Tatler | Focus - The Lu­cia Mag­nani Skin Care col­lec­tion is avail­able in-store at Harvey Ni­chols and on­line at har­veyn­i­

Beauty achieved through holis­tic well­ness is rel­a­tively novel con­cept in the cos­metic world. But for Lu­cia Mag­nani, a bio­chem­i­cal an­a­lyst and the CEO of award­win­ning Ital­ian med­i­cal spa Cas­tro­caro Terme, the science of “ben es­sere”—well­be­ing in Ital­ian—is the heart and soul of Lu­cia Mag­nani Skin Care.

The re­sult of more than 20 years re­search, Lu­cia Mag­nani Skin Care is a lux­u­ri­ously de­signed, high-per­for­mance col­lec­tion of an­tiox­i­dant-based skin­care prod­ucts now avail­able at Hong Kong’s Harvey Ni­chols stores, fol­low­ing its launch last year year in Lon­don with big fan Joan Collins as guest of honour.

The col­lec­tion is based on Mag­nani’s orig­i­nal well­ness pro­gramme Long Life For­mula, which har­nesses the prop­er­ties of sci­en­tif­i­cally proven in­gre­di­ents to pre­vent age­ing in the skin from the in­side out. In each prod­uct, care­fully se­lected an­tiox­i­dants COQ10, vi­ta­min E, vi­ta­min C and al­pha lipoic acid are com­bined with earthy el­e­ments such as quartz and min­eral-rich green salso-bromo-iodic wa­ters—sourced from the Ital­ian town Cas­tro­caro Terme—for op­ti­mal ben­e­fits.

“An­tiox­i­dants help con­trast the age­ing process, while min­er­als send vi­bra­tions to the skin with pos­i­tive en­ergy,” says Mag­nani. “Our col­lec­tion’s unique­ness lies in the com­bi­na­tion of these el­e­ments that you can­not find any­where else.”

The col­lec­tion’s pack­ag­ing, de­signed by Marc Rosen, are the height of Ital­ian el­e­gance, and de­serve pride of place on your van­ity dresser. In­spired by na­ture, the crys­tal clear oval jars are topped with Ital­ian tor­toise­shell-pat­terned caps in slanted and un­even shapes—echo­ing the rivers of life.

The lux­u­ri­ous range spans mois­turis­ers, masks, serums, ton­ers and sup­ple­ments. Mag­nani rec­om­mends starting your daily regime with a cleanser, the an­tiox­i­dant-rich re­ju­ve­nat­ing serum, and a dab of the il­lu­mi­nat­ing eye cream, be­fore fin­ish­ing with a day or night mois­turiser. A spritz or two of the re­fresh­ing en­er­gis­ing toner, which comes in a lux­u­ri­ous spray bot­tle, pro­vides your skin a per­fect mid-day boost.

“I want women to feel beau­ti­ful, not just look beau­ti­ful. The unique­ness that each woman ex­presses should be through valu­ing and en­hanc­ing the nat­u­ral beauty of her skin and body, on the ba­sis of gen­eral well­be­ing. My new skin care line en­hances this unique­ness,” says Mag­nani.

FOR­EVER YOUNG Lu­cia Mag­nani is the woman be­hind the epony­mous line of high­per­for­mance, an­tiox­i­dant skin­care
