[watch this!] ORESTA and Stark Skincare on CTV!

July 26, 2012

ORESTA Organic Skin Confectionery has been carrying Stark for a couple of months now. They are a trifecta of gorgeous boutique spas in Ottawa, that look more like eco-friendly art galleries than somewhere to get your skincare on. We like that aspect of ORESTA. Buying natural skincare shouldn’t feel like a clinical experience. Old-time Apothecary-like, sure, but feeling wary of a speculum sneaking up behind you? Not so much.
No, ORESTA does it right. Not only are the locations gorgeous, but they carry some of the best of the uber-clean brands around, from some of the bigger names like Kahina, to little indie brands even I haven’t heard of, and naturally we’re very happy to be one of their newer brands.
Anyhow, recently ORESTA was on CTV talking about summer-time skin woes with Ottawa host Leann Cusack.

Check out segment #1, where owner Oresta Korbutiak talks about sunscreen (I bet you’ve never heard this advice before) and then the lovely Kelly talks about her experience using Stark (@ around 3:11). *High fives!*

It's naturally doing a good job, for certain, but many of those elements that it's protecting you against?  Those aren't natural. Your skin's natural defenses can only take so much abuse. You are wearing a coat of armour for a whole other kind of battle.

Let me just be stark about this. You know what you don't want in common with a Sea Captain? Weathered skin. And scurvy, probably. Eat those lemons.

 

"Weathering" happens to everything. It's the law of the universe that all things naturally lean towards chaos and destruction. (It's called entropy, but let's not get too nerdy right now.)
