Abigail (Abby) Spencer
Abby is the daughter of professional surfer Yancy Bailey Spencer III, and artist and teacher Lydia Spencer, and middle child between both professional surfing brothers Sterling & Yancy Spencer IV. Of course, Abigail was destined to be the greatest female surfer that ever lived. If it weren't for skin. That's right: skin. Lydia's fear of the sun (and yes married to a surfer) and commitment to cancer free and youthful skin took Abby off the beach & into dance class thus setting her down the path to becoming a professional actress and artist.
You might know Abby from her work on Mad Men, Suits, Cowboys & Aliens, Chasing Mavericks, Oz the Great and Powerful, and True Detective. But her role as Amantha Holden on the critically acclaimed Rectify cemented her commitment to fully realized whole female characters in the much needed space. Expanding into producing, Abigail has worked on the short film Here and Now, which won Ron Howard's Project Imagination, and the 2016 Oscar shortlisted film Winter Light.
In front of the camera and off, taking care of her skin has become synonymous with her craft. If it weren't for her mother's foresight and slight obsession as a skin care sales rep for the little known Vanda, who knows where she'd be; Surfer. Lawyer. Etch a sketch master. Regardless, she is a constant skin enthusiast to the fullest degree and now gets to bring all the passions, explorations and purpose together here at the dew. Let's dew this thang.
Krissy is an entrepreneur, entertainment attorney, writer, mother of three, special needs advocate...and happens to have incredibly, um, well-preserved skin for a woman in her forties. (It's just the truth). Born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, the daughter of an elegant woman from the Philippines and an avid all-American outdoorsman, she spent her formative days playing outside in all seasons, and getting the most envied tan of all her friends.
Truth is, she actually felt like she stuck out like a tan sore thumb. Though her skin heritage lent for easy tanning and slow aging (thank you Asian skin genes), Krissy became acutely aware of skin health when she developed eczema as a pre-teen. Doctor’s orders at age twelve in order to eliminate these itchy, blotchy, white patches on her body were to be diligent, gentle, and thorough with cleansing and moisturizing every inch of skin on her body, using only the most pure products, every single day! Oh, and use sunscreen please. Krissy took heed, and this life sentence of chronic eczema actually became the saving grace of her olive, and from then on, mostly eczema-free skin.
Working for and launching multiple production companies (Fox Television, Lifetime Television, Fifty Foot Films, Paper Tape Films, Cinelicious, Cinelicious Pics) in Los Angeles - and exposed to the mecca of luxury medi-spas, top celebrity plastic surgeons and health experts - over the past two decades, she’s seen her entire peer group handle aging in every way imaginable. Through her work with Fifty Foot Films, she had the privilege over a decade of producing hundreds of wedding films for very discerning brides (including Jessica Capshaw, Christina Aguilera, Mariska Hargitay and Kate Walsh), and became an expert on how skin looks on film. Working with top photographers such as Elizabeth Messina and Amy and Stuart, and the best event designers and planners in the industry like Yifat Oren and Lisa Vorce, the driving consensus is that perfect makeup and precisely filtered lenses cannot take the place of radiant skin. "Sure you can load on heavy makeup , and tweak things in post production, but when a bride - no matter her age or amount of wrinkles - has glowing, radiant, dewy skin, it shines through like nothing else. The camera finds her like a magnet." says Korver on her work with women on film. Sharing her mutual passion for skin health with Abby and Kelly, and harnessing her entrepreneurial drive once again, the dew is born.
