Every morning after washing my face I apply two treatments with vitamin C: I start with the more liquid one and then apply the denser one on top. Florence organic serum with vitamin C and enriched with vitamin E and hyaluronic acid it is free of parabens, silicones and alcohol, it absorbs immediately and its ingredients help to treat fine lines making the skin look radiant and youthful. The serum dries quickly and leaves the skin more taut and plumped. A moisturizer should be applied after the serum, but before applying the cream, I usually apply another more thick serum on the face: Endocare C. Fast-absorbing serum that protects the skin from damage caused by environmental stressors (free radicals, urban contaminants). Its formula combines EDAFENCE®, innovative anti-pollution technology with proven efficacy, against heavy metals, tobacco smoke and urban pollutants with our SCA® Growth Factor Technology with antioxidant activity and repair. In addition, its complete antioxidant formula includes vitamin C and ferulic acid.
 The best thing to do for the skin, however, is to take a lot of vitamin C, and nothing gives me more energy than a good centrifuge or a juice. To make up for the deficiency of this vitamin I assume vitamin C Principium C1000 mg Tre-Tard Vitamin C with triple release for a gradual absorption It is a high dosage Vitamin C supplement, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system and protects cells from oxidative stress. Furthermore, it helps bones, teeth, muscles, skin and joints to stay healthy. Its innovative technology with 3-stage controlled release allows a gradual absorption of Vitamin C throughout the day and therefore it is better used by the body. It also contains Dog Rose and Acerola extracts for an antioxidant action. I usually alternate Principium C 1000 with Principium Super C 500 mg Super C 500 mg is a Vitamin C supplement from Rosa canina and Camu camu fruits. Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins thanks to its broad spectrum of action: it promotes the normal immune system function, it is an excellent antioxidant and helps protect cells against oxidative stress; it boosts iron absorption and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamin C, as well as being an excellent antioxidant, also supports the body’s natural defences and in this period it's more important than ever!

Tomorrow is officially spring, but unfortunately we cannot enjoy the good weather for walking in the parks or under the sun. So let's take advantage of this period in which we cannot expose ourselves to solar radiation to exfoliate our skin. In these days I am using three products that are giving me a good result.
In the evening after cleansing the skin, I apply the Filorga re-oxygenating micro-peeling lotion that took inspiration from its expertise in aesthetic medicine to create OXYGEN-PEEL, a daily lotion suitable for all skin types for a new skin effect, Intensive smoothing: (6 acids) micro-peeling cocktail gently exfoliates the skin and smoothes wrinkles and pores. Ultra-fresh hydration: Hyaluronic acid rehydrates and plumps the skin. Radiant complexion: Bio-active oxygen sensors promote cell oxygenation and reveals a fresh and radiant complexion.
Then I apply Perricone MD Exfoliating Peel that proven to increase cell renewal by 100% after 18 days, this liquid peel glides onto skin to target & eliminate dead skin cells, rebalance skin's hydration & plump the appearance of fine lines over time. An ideal final step in any cleansing routine to help reveal visibly smoother, softer, more radiant looking skin. T
o finish I apply Shakti alpha hydroxy acid cream 10% with vitis vinifera, passiflora, ananas sativa and citrus limonum. This cream induces a slight exfoliation of the surface cells, it's indicated in the prevention of the first signs of aging. Used it every evening the small wrinkles are reduced and the skin appears more compact, smooth and brighten.

In February the Palazzo Reale in Milan, when the city was not yet closed due to the Coronavirus, it hosted a magnificent exhibition of Van Cleef & Arples jewels. Today that museums are closed all over Italy because of the pandemic, we retrace the exhibition from home.
In the Van Clef&Arples. Time, Nature, Love exhibition, time reflected in each of the 500 works on display and it is the true protagonist of the Maison's history. We enter and are greeted by a riot of creations that combine artisan excellence with harmony. From the brooch to the diadem, creations that express the spirit of the time. The symbol of this concept, and icon of the exhibition, is the famous Zip which seems to have been born from a whim of Wally Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor. Beauty, genius and skill coexist in this zipper studded with precious stones and sublimated with gold teeth, fully functional. Three other rooms are then dedicated to Nature, Botany, Fauna and Flora.
Van Cleef & Arpels is a French luxury jewelry founded in 1896 by Alfred Van Cleef and his father-in-law Salomon Arpels in Place Vendôme, Paris . Celebrating the unparalleled ability of the jewels to unite savoir-faire, beauty and art, the exhibition has been curated into three sections – Time, Nature, Love – conceived using Italo Calvino’s ‘Lezioni Americane’ (American Lessons) as a starting point.

Milano - Renata Fabbri announces Giovanni Kronenberg’s second solo show at the gallery.
The exhibition includes a series of new drawings and sculptures, most of which have been conceived specifically for this project. Since the early stage of his career, Kronenberg’s work has been characterized by a tight relation between sculpture – interpreted through a deeply physical approach – and drawing, which anticipates, re-iterates and expands upon its peculiarities as well as its ergonomic, tactile and transcendental features. Throughout the years his drawing practice has become more and more important in the work of the artist: since his use of pure graphite, which used to define the works on paper until few years ago, recently Kronenberg has started to explore colour in compositions of sinuous forms, suspended and free from spatial connotation. These mysterious figures and the sculptures share an ungraspable materiality, caught in a dimension that is abstracted from time and space. Hard to identify, some of them recall natural structures in progressive ramification – like crystals, gems, sea sponges or precious granites – all materials that Kronenberg has often used in his sculptures, drawn to their properties of self-germination and extension into space without following any narrative direction or chronological handholds.
In view of the current health emergency, they inform that the gallery will remain open by appointment only, until further notice. In the meanwhile they are available for appointments or for any informations by email and phone.

 Milano - Renata Fabbri presenta la seconda mostra personale in galleria di Giovanni Kronenberg.
In mostra saranno presenti sculture e disegni inediti, la maggioranza dei quali realizzati in occasione di questo progetto. Fin dai suoi esordi, il lavoro di Kronenberg si è caratterizzato da uno stretto rapporto tra la scultura – interpretata in un senso fortemente materico e formale - e il disegno, che della scultura anticipa, riprende o espande le particolarità ergonomiche, tattili e trascendentali. Negli anni, la pratica del disegno ha assunto una sempre maggiore centralità nel lavoro dell’artista: dall’uso della pura grafite nera che definiva le opere su carta fino a qualche anno fa, Kronenberg ha più recentemente iniziato ad esplorare il colore in composizioni di forme sinuose, sospese e libere da connotazioni spaziali. Queste figure misteriose condividono con le sculture una materialità indefinibile, sospesa in una dimensione astratta di tempo e spazio. Di difficile identificazione, alcune di loro ricordano conformazioni naturali in progressiva ramificazione - come cristalli, pietre preziose, spugne di mare o graniti pregiati- materiali che Kronenberg ha spesso utilizzato nelle sculture, attratto dalle loro proprietà di autogerminazione e di estensione nello spazio senza una direzione narrativa o appigli cronologici.
A seguito dell'attuale emergenza sanitaria, la galleria Renata Fabbri sarà aperta solo su appuntamento, fino a nuovo avviso. Sono contattabili via email e telefono per appuntamenti, programmazioni e ulteriori informazioni.
