Happy Birthday Elizabeth!

To celebrate this joyous occasion, we thought we'd post an excerpt from the memoir book: Elizabeth Grant My Life -- My Story.

  In the beginning, life was good. My father, who I called Papa, owned a very modern and successful blouse factory capable of mass production. We enjoyed great affluence. Papa drove a fashionable, jazz-hott Dailmler, and I recall my mother dressed in an elaborate full-length beaded gown that cost a hundred pounds at a time when a loaf of bread was a penny. As in most good homes, there were servants and a nanny.

Elizabeth and her Mother.
   Mummy had a great zest for life. My mother was strikingly beautiful. She was tall, about five-feet-nine; she had alabaster skin and a head of thick, black curls bobbed short. One of my earliest memories of my mother is how I remember watching her at her dressing table. Every night she'd brush her hair one hundred times, and we'd count together. Then, she would apply her creams, always in the same order--and she taught me how to use makeup and perfume. She was very modern and had a natural sense of style. These are rosy memories for me. 

Elizabeth's Mother and Father.
    I also have wonderful, vivid memories of moments with my father. He adored me, and he doted on me when it was utterly unfashionable for fathers to behave in this manner. He'd stroke my hair and talk to me as an adult. Even though I was a mere child, he took me to the factory to show me the amazing world of spinning threads and bobbins. My father encouraged me to touch different fabrics, explaining how they were made. I was amazed at the difference between cotton and silk.

Winter Beauty Defences

With winter in full swing, many people believe that the products they use during warmer seasons will carry them through the change of weather.

It is time to change up your beauty routine to face the snow, slush, and freezing wind chill temperatures with glowing radiance.

Lip Service in the Snow
Chapped lips are one of the most common beauty problems we have during the winter. This problem is maintained by licking out lips, thinking it will moisten our pout even though it evaporates and causes more dryness. The dryness is accompanied by painful cracks and a rough surface at the mouth.

Transform your lips from a dry, cracked surface to a moistened, smooth pout with Elizabeth Grant’s Socializer Can You Keep A Secret? Lip Exfoliator & Conditioning Balm.

Start by using the gentle exfoliator to remove dry skin cells and help prime lips for the balm. Next step, apply the clear conditioning balm to soothe, hydrate and smooth your lips, making them beautiful for the winter time.

Keeping Your Face Smooth and Silky amongst the Slush
Putting your best face forward in the winter can be tricky, especially if you don’t use products that can stand against the harsh winds and freezing temperatures. Without proper moisturizing and hydration, your skin will become dry, flaky and red.

As you would layer your clothes in the winter, layer your skin with intense moisturizing serums, such as Elizabeth Grant’s Essence of Torricelumn™.

Delivering Torricelumn™ in its purest, most concentrated form, this is an intensive treatment that moisturizes and rejuvenates the skin, while providing anti-aging qualities.

Moisturizing Hands and Feet against Wind Chill
In frosty weather, heat is drawn toward the trunk area of the body, causing your hands and feet to get colder. Although your hands and feet are protected with warm gloves, socks and boots, the cold air dries out your hands and feet, causing them to become cracked and rough to the touch.

Give your hands and feet some TLC with Elizabeth Grant’s Hand & Foot Cream. Our cream contains Torricelumn™ - our superior moisturizing compound and Camphor, which soothes and refreshes your hands and feet.

For best results, moisturize at dawn and dusk for optimal soft winter skin.

Replenishing Hydration of Your Skin in the Cold
Once the cold weather hits, skin can become dry, flaking and itchy due to the lack of natural moisture. As much as we are in heated indoor locations throughout the winter, our heating systems cannot replace the hydration our skin receives in warm weather.

Loaded with intense hydrators, Elizabeth Grant’s Lubricating Body Treatment is your perfect skin fix during the winter. This cream is heavy duty yet luxurious, containing a rich blend of aloe extract, Vitamin E, and Shea Butter to make skin feel velvety smooth.

The combination of Torricelumn™ - our superior moisturizing compound, Sodium Hyaluronate – a moisturizing protein and Shea Butter creates an amazing winter defence.

Plant Stem Cells: The New Wave of Anti-Aging

With today’s skin care technology, many people are looking to turn back the clocks and gain the chance to look young again with the use of creams and treatments. To remain at the cutting edge of skin care and to keep up with our “plastic surgery in a bottle” reputation, Elizabeth Grant Skin Care has adopted and incorporated the latest scientific breakthrough in the reversal of natural aging – Plant Stem Cells.

Plant Stem Cells have been found to be helpful in the reduction and smoothing of crow's feet, stretch marks,  controlling cellulite, and softening and smoothing the texture of skin. 

With the influence of scientific research about the aging process, numerous “miracle” ingredients entered the cosmetics world over the last few years. The emergence of antioxidants in skin care products have led to strong results of increased skin elasticity, firmness and the smoothing of lines of wrinkles. However, the skin care world was still searching for an even better solution to the aging issue.

With the arrival and testing of Plant Stem Cell technology, scientists have uncovered that the ingredient can replace both lost and damaged cells like no other natural element. These small cells have the ability to continuously regenerate new, whole plants. This process is useful for human skin, as they are able to perform the same functions as human epidermal stem cells. However, Plant Stem Cells have been proven to be much more effective at replenishing the skin and fighting common signs of aging, such as wrinkles and crow’s feet. These cells are more effective because they are able to divide numerous times and fight aging at a stronger force in comparison to human epidermal stem cells.

Since its initial discovery, Plant Stem Cell research is the next promising and exciting edge in skin care. Upon further testing, these natural cells were found to be helpful in not only the reduction and smoothing of crow’s feet, but were also helpful in addressing stretch marks, controlling cellulite and smoothing and softening the texture of the skin.

Stay tuned for the exciting launch of our new Elizabeth Grant Skin Care line which contains Plant Stem Cells! 

You're invited! Celebrate with us on TSC this weekend.
