NOW SHOWING: SKIN!

Bask in the sun-kissed embrace of Jamaica’s natural beauty, with Skin!, a photo series starring artist Suzanna Missenberger and produced by multidisciplinary creatives Marleisse Stephens and Bel Downie to celebrate rejuvenated skin through skincare products crafted especially for the island.

Escape to the shores of Jamaica, where sun-kissed skin glows against breezy palm trees and tranquil turquoise waters. Jamaica remains a vibrant and welcoming destination for visitors looking to explore its rich culture. The country continues to thrive as a developing nation, with tourism being vital to its economy. During island adventures, protecting and pampering your skin with products tailor-made for the Jamaican climate is another opportunity to experience the island’s natural splendor.

Filmed along the lush riverbanks of Golden Spring, Kingston, this photo series, SKIN!, captures the natural beauty of Jamaica while showcasing luxurious skincare products, Necessaire, Humanrace and Nuxe, crafted especially for the island. SKIN!, celebrates the island spirit of Jamaica through artistic collaboration.

About the Artists

Marleisse Stephens, a Jamaican Canadian brand marketing expert and managing director of creative agency The Belmont Agency, joined forces over a decade ago with Creative Director, Art Director and DJ Bel Downie from Australia. Despite their distant origins, the two kindred spirits bonded over music, media and a shared beach culture aesthetic. Together, this talented duo produced compelling visual stories representing the vibrance of coastal communities worldwide. 

Jamaican visual artist Suzanna Missenberger stars as the model in this series, elegantly embodying the relationship between nature and cultural roots. As a painter, muralist and sculptor, Missenberger’s work delves into themes of environmentalism and identity. Her presence in SKIN! honors that artistic mission.
