Olga Lorencin-Northup

imageKnown for her Oscar award winning Red Carpet Facial, celebrities flock to Olga Lorencin-Northup for a fast glow with little side effects. She has spent years studying and perfecting skin, client-by-client, hour-by-hour, and pore-by-pore. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Olga and to learn about her must-have products designed for the good of the skin.

imageOlga shared, "Making a product is like making a great meal. It's about formulation." She is a firm believer in less is more, therefore, built her line around this theory. Kinara, meaning "on the edge", is a line mastered from the spa, bringing a new level of efficacy and performance directly to the customer in their own home. What makes Olga so very special is she reacts to her clients needs and designs products around what her clients want.

Her three must-do tips for skin that glows are:
1. Cleanse every night with warm water and a soap
2. Exfoliate with a mild formula every night
3. Repair with a moisturizer or product that is 'redeeming'.

Olga answered these skin-worthy questions:

MBB: What is the most surprising thing that ages a woman?
Olga: Aging Process is different for every individual, some people lose there face volume first. Other woman lose their elasticity most of our aging is genetically coded so it's difficult to say what would surprise most likely just the process itself.
MBB: As we age, what is the most important thing a women can do to promote healthy, youthful skin?
Olga: A regular skin care routine, exercise, and healthy nutrition.
MBB: Are there any skin products or ingredients women should stay away from?
Olga: Not really, that is a really broad question. But In general, every skin type needs different care. There is no one size fits all.
MBB: What is the number one thing that can age a women?
Olga: Alcohol consumption, smoking, lack of sleep, and just in general not taking care of yourself.
MBB: What is your favorite go-to skin care product in your line that you wouldn't be able to live without?
Olga: Probably, Kinara Intense Moisturizer with Peptides. It's versatile, and appropriate for most anyone.
MBB: Which well-known women do you think looks great as they age?
Olga: I might be bias, but Halle Berry, Eva Mendes, and Sophia Vergara are hard to beat in that department. All Kinara clients of course.

I was so impressed with Olga, her knowledge, her expertise, but mostly her down-to-earth style, it was as if I knew her for 10-years!
