Last Thursday night, Well+Good readers packed the Red Flower boutique in Nolita for a night of winter skin-care tips, mini facials, cold-pressed juices from the Pump, and shopping.

Yael Alkalay, a natural beauty product pioneer and founder of Red Flower, led a short workshop on how to incorporate facial acupressure into our daily skin-care regimen or the shower.

The forty-some attendees learned the eleven points known for giving skin a natural lift, and mini-facials with the new Red Flower Nature skin-care range were offered throughout the evening by the Shibui Spa, the Greenwich Hotel’s chic little hideaway.

Supporting the idea that good nutrition is key to good skin, Elizabeth Kellogg from the Pump Energy Food was on hand to pour cold-pressed juices that support skin health. Immunity, with carrot, cantaloupe, and cayenne, provided a serious jolt of beta-carotene, and the Greens and Apple, with cucumber, spinach, kale and green apple, offered a hydrating vitamin infusion.

All the event attendees received gift bags containing Red Flower soaps and samples, a free Super-Charged Plate at the Pump restaurants, and $100 off a spa treatment at the Shibui Spa at the Greenwich Hotel. And everyone at the event received 20 percent off their Red Flower purchases. Needless to say, everyone left with smiling, lifted faces from those eleven acupressure points.
