Ultimate Winter Glow with the new Foreo Luna Mini 3

With the global launch of the LUNA mini 3 last summer and last October in Switzerland, the Swedish skintech brand FOREO has once again demonstrated that it continues to push the boundaries of innovation to bring pioneering products to the market. The app-activated, trackable LUNA mini 3 with exclusive "Glow Boost" mode is the biggest innovation of the successful brand so far. This smart device has everything you need to improve your skin care routine and help you achieve the ultimate winter glow.
Dalia Fernandez, FOREO's Product Development Manager says:

"Great skin is full in trend and there's nothing like a radiant complexion to boost your confidence, but when the colder months begin, the weather changes and this can have devastating effects on the complexion. The LUNA mini 3 helps people achieve a long-lasting glow over the winter and beyond."

 Skin is a creature of habit, skin likes texture, and so sudden changes in temperature and humidity are not particularly beneficial to skin. The dermatologist Dr. Shari Marchbein emphasizes that breakouts are also due to behavioral changes, as routines and internal environmental factors first have to adapt to the colder weather.
She identifies hot showers and central heating as two of the worst culprits. Although you can hardly imagine a long, cold winter without any of the above, there are still some ways to achieve a consistent routine and to minimize any interference while the skin adapts to the changing weather.
Fernandez continues:

"The LUNA mini 3 is FOREO's most innovative product so far and was eagerly awaited.The latest addition to the iconic LUNA product line is sold every 3 seconds around the world and is loved by celebrities like Chrissy Teigen. We developed the world's first trackable device, but also developed an innovative "Glow Boost" mode that achieves a perfect complexion for radiant skin throughout the year and in all weather conditions in just 30 seconds. "

For the ultimate winter glow, you can buy the LUNA mini 3 at www.foreo.com/luna-mini-3, Globus, Marionnaud or on perfecthair.ch for CHF 189.

Art that changes every second: the extraordinary collaboration between Carlos Cruz-Diez and Hublot

Everything that is created by passion lasts forever. The last project of the deceased Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez strengthens once more the connection between art and watchmaking. The new Classic Fusion Cruz-Diez is characterized by a variety of colors and ever-changing color combinations. Beyond the purely visual effect, the color composition of the watch changes with the passing of hours, minutes and seconds, reflecting other works by the deceased artist - a familiar element in the world of kinetic art. In Hublot's masterpiece of technical sophistication, parallel discs rotate one above the other.
This new special edition was unveiled on the 5th of December at the Espace Expression Gallery, Miami, in the presence of the artist's family.
