The PLC is an innovative learning center based on the theory of multiple intelligences for preschool aged children and their adult caregivers. Both children and adults can participate in activities specially designed to help children develop the skills needed for a successful learning experience when they enter school.

This program will serve an estimated 4,500 children and their adult caregivers annually. Due to the lack of space at Adriance Memorial Library, the PLC will be housed at the Family Partnership Center on North Hamilton Street in the City of Poughkeepsie.

Elemis Launches new Visible Brilliance

Elemis Launches new Visible Brilliance

Elemis has announced the launch of Visible Brilliance, the latest addition to its skincare range.

(PRWEB) September 9, 2009

British spa and skincare brand Elemis has launched the latest product in its skincare range: an innovative skin radiance booster suitable for all skin types and ages.

With the skin containing minerals that are important in maintaining a healthy glow, Visible Brilliance (http://www. timetospa. co. uk/skincare/skin-boosters/NEW-Elemis-Visible-Brilliance/ (http://www. timetospa. co. uk/skincare/skin-boosters/NEW-Elemis-Visible-Brilliance/)) from Elemis aims to bring brightness and luminosity back to skin that has been damaged by environmental pollution and lifestyle stresses. This new skin radiance booster from Elemis actively targets the skin's metabolism to brighten, lift and re-energise fatigued and stressed skin.

Harnessing the power of multi-minerals including Copper, Zinc and Magnesium combined with Red Seaweed, Swiss Garden Cress, Blonde Pea Protein and Dew Bean, it restores and repairs the skin for instant radiance.

Noella Gabriel, Director of Product and Treatment at Elemis (http://www. timetospa. co. uk/ (http://www. timetospa. co. uk/)), commented: "Everyone's lifestyle manifests itself in different ways. As a result, today's 'modern skin' reflects the signs of stress, pollution, medication and early menopause. The skin starts looking dull, lifeless and imbalanced. To restore radiance we wanted to develop a lightweight serum that is easily absorbed and power-packed with minerals and vitamins that are key to the improvement of skin function and cell renewal. With Visible Brilliance, customers will see an instant glow."

Upon application in the morning and evening, users of the new serum will notice an iridescent gold and silver appearance, resulting in a translucent glow to the skin. When combined with Elemis' Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (http://timetospa. co. uk/skincare/best-sellers/Elemis-Pro-Collagen-Marine-Cream-100ml-/ (http://timetospa. co. uk/skincare/best-sellers/Elemis-Pro-Collagen-Marine-Cream-100ml-/)), the serum also helps to create an ideal base for makeup application.

Visible Brilliance from Elemis will be available online and on the high street from the 14th of September.
