No parabens, no fragrance, no animal testing. photography by ALEX EVANS | beauty & words by NATALIE VENTOLA | model LINA with elite toronto LARA BEAUTY It’s easy to crave simplicity. Luxury is everywhere, and the beauty industry is an inflated market of creams, claims, excessive ingredients and outrageous price tags. With so many options available to women, it’s not uncommon to get excited and try a cocktail of serums and lotions. What sometimes follows is your skin screaming “enough!” And suddenly you are faced with redness, irritation, and maybe even unexplainable breakouts. What now? Lara Beauty delivers an answer.  For whatever reason your skin is feeling sensitive (allergies, cold weather, genetics), this reliable skin care line is Fragrance Free, Paraben Free, and contains no synthetic colors, GMO’s, sulfates, or petrochemicals. It also has a legible ingredient list. But does it deliver results?   Polishing Microderm Abrasion for Sensitive Skin Lara’s system is simple, and includes everything you need for beautiful, healthy, glowing skin. Step one to any skin care regime above and beyond basic cleansing is a proper exfoliant. If you have ever tried an at-home Microderm Abrasion, you will be happy to know about this hypoallergenic option that delivers top results. This product is a beauty must-have even if you are not of a sensitive skin nature. Try using this product in the shower! The steam will help to open tight pores and allow for a deeper cleansing. Don’t forget the neck and  decoullette! of Lara Beauty Anti-Aging Daily Therapy. The key ingredients are Allantoin, Tamarind Seed Extract and Botanicals.   Allantoin sloughs off dead skin cells promoting cell regeneration and skin rejuvenation. It acts as an anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory, soothing and moisturizing the skin. Tamarind Seed extract stimulates cell repair and promotes elasticity and hydration. Botanicals like Japanese Green Tea Leaf Extract, Aloe and Chamomile soothe and rejuvenate the skin, tightening pores calming redness and irritation, minimizing the look of blemishes and fine lines and wrinkles. Conditioning Cleanser for Sensitive Skin A beautiful gentle cleanser with a generous lather, this product will leave your face squeaky clean without feeling over dried. The light milky texture is luxurious. The absence of fragrance is non-irritating and refreshing, and a little bit goes a long way. Everything about this product is desirable. Anti-Aging and Daily Therapy For Sensitive Skin This cream is a gem in a jar for women with sensitive skin looking for a moisturizer that delivers results without any irritations. The best part of Lara Beauty is the philosophy behind it “I didn’t want to look 20 years old. I wanted to look great for 45”. When it comes to creams, any expectation above and beyond this may leave you disappointed. Moisturizer is not a time machine. True beauty is about living in the present moment, loving yourself exactly as you are, and respecting yourself enough to take care of your beautiful skin! The botanical ingredients are practically edible (avocado, chamomile, and grape seed to name a few). More and more cosmetic ingredients are beings dubbed unsafe or carcinogenic, so you can feel confident this product will cater to your overall health, as well as provide you with a youthful glow. Creamy without being greasy, it delivers optimal balanced hydration. Revitalizing Daily Toner for Sensitive Skin Lara Beauty’s Revitalizing Daily Toner comes in a convenient spray bottle.  After cleansing, spray the toner on a cotton pad and apply it with a sweeping motion all over your face and neck. Be careful to avoid the eye area. The gentle, alcohol-free formulation will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated while restoring the natural pH balance to enhance penetration and absorption I’m happy to reveal that for an affordable price and a100% money back guarantee, you can experience a wonderful anti-aging skin care system, without the risk of irritation. As someone who suffers periodically from eczema, I was happy to see that Lara’s products did not induce any flare ups. It helped my skin’s dryness and subtle daily irritations feel soothed and balanced. The products are an absolute pleasure to use.
