Beauty sleep is no myth for Evoté.The new skin-care line, which launches today on Evine, works with the body’s circadian rhythm by focusing on the skin’s melatonin production, specifically at night.Coming from the manufacturing and private-label sector of the beauty industry, cofounders Nik and Irena James came upon research that showed the skin is more receptive to ingredients during the night, which led them to develop a 12-hour biocomplex meant to stimulate the skin’s reparative actions while the user is asleep.“Today’s research revolves around the vast differences in the way the skin functions during the day versus during the night,” said Irena James, cofounder of the brand. “During the day the skin’s barrier is so much more compact and it’s in defense mode, while at night the skin is performing a massive reparative action.”To deliver an effective nighttime skin-care regimen, the duo developed a collection of eight products that helps regulate the body’s melatonin production, which is released more rapidly at night.“The skin is capable of utilizing topically applied melatonin,” James continued. “Our complex, which includes melatonin, is a bio-mimic of what your brain naturally produces so it can work with your skin receptors.”The brand claims that because the skin comes in contact with environmental pollutants and stimulants throughout the day, the body’s production of melatonin can be altered. This can cause lack of sleep and the appearance of fatigue on the face. The nighttime collection is meant to combat this with topically applied melatonin to reduce the appearance of tiredness as well as address wrinkles, firmness and radiance.“The skin’s barrier overnight opens up and is great for product penetration,” James said on why they focused on a nighttime regimen. “The nighttime is the perfect time for your skin to recover, repair and replenish the energy levels, so when you wake up in the morning your skin is in top shape and you don’t have to pile on 15 different products.”The nighttime collection includes a cleanser, neck and décolleté cream, serum, eye cream, lip treatment serum, hydrating mask, face elixir and enzyme exfoliator, which retail for $41 to $89.95. The brand also offers a daytime collection to continue working with the body’s circadian rhythm. This collection includes an antiaging eye serum, antioxidant facial wash, protect and illuminate cream with SPF 25 and radiance infusion face serum. These products retail for $37.50 to $65. Both collections are currently available on Evine.Evoté is working to expand both the daytime and nighttime collection. Currently the brand is working on a body line that addresses cellulite.More From WWD:The Vagina Diaries: Beauty World Embraces Feminine CareInfluence Peddler: Fil Xiaobai’s Unique Style Attracts an Array of Luxury PartnershipsAccademia del Profumo Names Annual Award Winners

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
