AS FALL DRYNESS APPROACHES, WE’RE GIVING OUR SKIN A LITTLE EXTRA LOVIN’ AFTER ALL THAT FUN IN THE SUN. ENTER OUR FRIENDS AT TATA HARPER. WE TALKED WITH THEIR TEAM ABOUT TAKING THE MAMA SPACE BY STORM AND THEIR FAVORITE NOURISHING SKIN TIPS (WHETHER YOU’RE WITH OR WITHOUT THE BUMP).
HATCH/What sets Tata Harper apart from other skincare brands?
Tata Harper/We refuse to compromise. Every single one of our complex formulas is truly 100% natural, and we include as many high-performance ingredients as we can fit (our Elixir Vitae Serum has 38!), not one or two like many other brands. We are our own manufacturers, and instead of outsourcing anything we make all of our products on our farm every month, so our crown of flowers on every box can really be a promise to our customers that they are receiving the freshest, highest quality product possible.
HATCH/Can you describe the best moment you’ve experienced as a brand so far?
Tata Harper/When we counted that we’d won 12 beauty awards last year! It felt really good to see that people recognize how great the products are when we put so much effort and so many ingredients into them, and helps us feel that our hard work is really helping people and paying off.
HATCH/If you could give 3 pieces of skincare or beauty advice, what would they be?
Tata Harper/ 1. Exfoliate every day. The skin undergoes a ‘programmed death’ every day, shedding dead skin cells that accumulate and cause dullness. It’s important to remove this daily buildup so that your skin glows and your products can penetrate and be most effective. 2. Have a comprehensive skincare regimen. It should include all of the basics – a daily cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, and a mask twice a week. I’m so surprised that in the U.S. people are scared of too many skincare steps but will do 20 makeup steps. I always tell my customers that if you take better care of your skin you won’t need all those makeup steps! 3. You are what you eat. Our skin essentially eats a third of everything that we eat, and reflects your nutrition and well-being. It’s important to eat a nutrient-rich diet, eat a lot of beta carotene and vitamin C rich foods, and drink a lot of water.
HATCH/What’s on the horizon for Tata Harper?
Tata Harper/I love to go to stores and teach people about their skin and the regimen they should be using, but I didn’t really have a solution for people with blemish-prone skin, especially those who also had aging concerns. It’s really important to me to be able to help people with all skin concerns, so I’m so excited that we’ll be launching the first product in our Clarifying Collection for blemish-prone skin this month! The collection is about healing the skin, not drying it out or being aggressive and irritating – we want our customers to be able to use these products as part of their daily regimens so they can feel beautiful in their skin every day.
HATCH/Favorite Tata Harper products. Go!
Tata Harper/It’s so hard to pick, but the Regenerating Cleanser, Elixir Vitae Serum, and Elixir Vitae Eye Serum are some of my favorites.
