    Describe your work environment/studio. Its part of my home, colorful and full of natural light. My work area gets messy very quickly it becomes full of papers, sketches and research material.

  • Until recently, the international clientele who flocked to Brazils ivo Pitanguy clinica picturesque colonial-style retreat tucked amid a quiet neighborhood in bustling rio de Janeirowere the only ones lucky enough to indulge in a deliciously exclusive ritual:

    picking up its skincare products to take home. the legendary institute, founded

    in 1963 by plastic-surgeon-to-the-stars ivo Pitanguy, has long been known for

    its innovative cosmetic procedures and bed-and-breakfast atmosphere. But after

    visitors tried its antiaging treatment line, they learned to stockpile every cream

    and serum they could get their hands on before catching their return flights.

    eventually, like all secrets, this one was too good to keep. Word spread quickly

    of these effective products that distilled the knowledge of the clinics world-

    famous biochemists, nutritionists, surgeons, and aestheticians. now, PreVious,

    the line from Beauty by clinica ivo Pitanguy, is available in the United States.

    the treatments, packaged in gleaming silver-topped jars of frosted glass,

    are color-free and mildly scented with natural plant essences. Formulated to

    smooth, contour, and revitalize skin, theyre packed with polypeptides and a

    host of botanicals, such as olive-leaf extract, orange-blossom water, ginkgo-biloba

    extract, and avocado oil.

    having heard about the line from worldly globe-trotting friends, i couldnt

    wait to delve in. i started with the Dermomask, a stack of five small jars containing

    a rich moisturizing mask to be used once a week. as directed, i slathered the

    entire contents of one pot on my face, waited ten minutes, and then wiped it off

    with a damp cloth. the cream was substantial but not heavy, and, best of all, my

    skin was so fresh and dewy that i didnt need makeup.

    the next morning i opened the rebalancing Formula and smoothed it over

    my clean face. Used to ward off dryness, the high-performance cream also restores

    firmness and elasticity. hours passed in my stifling, overheated apartment, and

    my skin was still noticeably soft. then i tried the eyecontour lifting Gel. Made

    with a caffeine derivative to lessen puffiness and silanol to firm, the lush-but-light

    serum is applied around the eyes in a gentle circular motion. For the first few

    minutes, i felt a slight tingling, which, according to the directions, meant the gel

    was doing its job. and did it ever! My crows-feet and lines above my eyelids (a

    maddeningly age-betraying area) plumped and tightened for the rest of the day.

    theres also the instant lifting cure, a light citrus-scented cream that firms skin

    and restores hydration.

    PreVious worked like a charm for me. i am an official devotee and, happily,

    dont have to make the journey to South america in order to get it. although, now

    i understand why so many people have said these products are worth the trip.
