Girls just want to have radiant skin! Cyndi Lauper was among the many talented performers who took to the stage at the 62nd Grammy Awards last night, and if you noticed a particularly megawatt glow beaming from the 66-year-old, it wasn’t just your television screen.
Ahead of the ceremony, the musician got a little help in the skincare department from one of her long-time favorite products: Tracie Martyn’s Firming Serum ($195, Tracie Martyn).
The serum is one Lauper has sworn by for some time, carrying it around in her bag and slathering it on her face daily since as far back as 2002. “I use the serum every day,” the “Time After Time” singer once told People. “It makes a world of difference. It’s really healing … you see a difference right away.”
She’s not the only one singing its praises: This luxurious serum has also been touted by the likes of Diane Von Furstenberg (“The firming serum is my favorite. It makes your skin feel like silk”) and Julianna Margulies (“The best thing ever. It means I don’t have to do terrible stuff to my face”) for its glow-inducing properties.
Its secret lies in its eight collagen-building antioxidants, including resveratrol (an extract derived from red grapes), superfruit bilberry extract, vitamin C, and power peptide glutathione (aka “the mother of all antioxidants”).
Olive-sourced squalene and moisture-inducing hyaluronic acid are also found on the ingredients list, making it an anti-aging dynamo that works to lift, moisturize, and regenerate the epidermis.
In addition to the instant glow it gives off, over time, the formula will begin to improve skin’s elasticity and lessen fine lines and wrinkles.
As the product that launched Tracie Martyn’s skincare brand, the Firming Serum is right in line with the all-natural company’s M.O. — As Martyn herself revealed to Coveteur, “We were the first brand to produce all-natural and anti-aging products.”
To use, simply apply it to your face, neck, and décolletage after cleansing in the morning and evening or as a spot treatment for the under-eye area.
Lauper, for her part, took it one step further, pairing the serum with the brand’s trademarked anti-aging Red Carpet Facial ($450, Tracie Martyn) at Martyn’s NYC-based spa ahead of the awards show, which includes a crystal-free microdermabrasion, a proprietary microcurrent treatment called the Resculptor, amber LED therapy, and an oxygen peptide mist. Together, it was a recipe for pure radiance we couldn’t help but envy.
We’ll definitely be picking up this glow-worthy salve: Flawless skin, here we come!
