Teri Dourmashkin is the lovely and smart founder of one of my favorite natural skincare lines, La Vie Celeste. Recently, she was kind enough to spend some time chatting with me on video and here she talks about how she made her first ever cream herself with her signature R-lipoic that she got by breaking capsules. The struggle to get started continued as she rejected formulas that looked too "earthy", until she found a formulator that could meet her standards. Teri also gives us a sneak preview of her new skin brightening serum, which sounds pretty exciting.
