Serums are highly concentrated, gel-based nutrient “cocktails” that are super charged with cutting edge ingredients specifically known for their abilities to repair and regenerate aging and environmentally damaged skin. Botanical extracts, B-complex vitamins, amino acids and moisture binding plant sugars have been shown in research studies to deeply nourish, repair and restore skin vitality. Serums may be used alone, or layered with other anti-aging creams for even more specific results.
It is important to understand the action of a moisturizer in order to choose the best one for your skin. A high quality moisturizer helps your skin “trap” moisture, binding it within the surface and prevents surface dehydration from occurring. It should “feed” the skin with nutrients; penetrate well – without clogging pores and allow the skin to “breathe”. Essentially, the right moisturizer will protect your skin from harmful environmental elements and help bring it back into balance, preventing premature aging, lines and wrinkles.
Your skin type determines which formula is best for you. Even oily skin needs “hydration”! A healthy balance of oil and water will deliver soft, beautiful skin!
Eye Care – The Windows of Your Soul…
The skin around the eyes is very thin, naturally dry and can be quite sensitive. This area needs special care – there are no pores in this area – nor are there oil producing glands to secrete natural oils to keep the skin moist. This is why the eye wrinkles earlier than the rest of the face. Moisturizers designed for the face can plug the lachrymal channels and produce water bags under the eyes and cause puffiness and irritation.
Products that contain petroleum (this includes concealers and eye make-up) can cause little white bumps to form. These are not whiteheads! It is caused by a buildup of petroleum in the outer skin layers. Special care and ingredients are a must to protect, nourish and restore “the windows of your soul”….
