One of the amazing things about attending Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City is the chance to be introduced to new and different brands. This past season, I had the chance to experience the organic brand Luzern by the great ladies of Advanced Skin Care spa in the city. 

Luzern is a high end skin care line, and is one of the few that is not only organic, but uses only Bio-Swiss organic extractions grown in the Alpine region. These extracts provide a much higher level of anti-oxidants and polyphenols, two of the most important ingredients in anti-aging skin care products. Luzern products contain at least 80% Bio-Active ingredients, eight times the amount found in other brands. In addition, you will never find chemical additives or synthetic preservatives that can render anti-aging ingredients useless. Luzern avoids the use of parabens, petrochemicals, formaldehydes, synthetic preservatives, colors and fragrances, making it not only extremely effective but perfect for sensitive skin.

Luzern products are available at the Advanced Skin Care spa, and the estheticians there visited a lounge during NYFW to show us how the products worked. Using an airbrush system and one of their Serum Absolute formulations, they demonstrated how an oxygen facial was done.

Oxygen facials are good for those with acne, smokers, urban dwellers, and those recovering from laser procedures. Medical grade oxygen helps cell turnover, removes acne causing bacteria, and promotes healing. And they will customize a skin care routine for you to use at home. The facial feels amazing, and they sent me home with their best seller, Force de Vie Creme Luxe, an amazing moisturizer with hylauronic acid and Co-Q10. It brings a nice glow to the skin and feels amazing.

Luzern Laboratories can be hard to find, but they are available at Amazon as well as at
