After becoming the very first governor of Puerto Rico, Spanish Explorer Juan Ponce De Leon was ready for his next adventure. Whispers of free-flowing rejuvenating waters, affectionately dubbed The Fountain of Youth, swirled around the governing Spanish Crown.
Accounts of people emerging from the waters with supple, soft beautiful skin soon filled the lips of the masses. As the rumors swept Puerto Rico, De Leon waged an ongoing legal battle with Viceroy Diego Colon, the son of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus.
Colon insisted he was governor as his father was granted exclusive privileges to the island prior to his death. Colon won the battle and De Leon was forced to step down.
Longtime friend and advisor, King Ferdinand of Spain, encouraged De Leon to explore the Caribbean Sea in search of new lands and the reported Fountain of Youth. He gathered his men on three ships and began his voyage.
In their pursuit, they came upon a lush, green landscape sprinkled with flowers. Juan named the landscape, La Florida after the Spanish Pascua Florida (festival of flowers); modern-day Easter season. Commands on board were to search for people with beautiful, toned skin glowing as if they bathed in the finest oils, and waters emitting the scent of fresh, sweet violets.
Though tiresome, the seamen looked forward to the discovery. Each day they never seemed to near the purported Fountain of Youth. The further they traveled, the less optimistic they became. They searched every lake, river, and dam eventually giving up. They ended their expedition within one year.
Present Day, people all over the world are still in search of the magical fountain of youth. Obagi has found it. With products developed to unleash your skins full potential, Obagi completed Juan Ponce De Leonʼs mission; and much to our delight the well hasn’t run dry.
