Beauty unraveled from its natural roots
Organic components in products are nature’s way of gifting humans with beauty in a bottle. These ingredients are of the same minerals, like amino acids and enzymes, as those in our bodies. The skin synthesizes these products to renew damaged cells and to convert them into addional vitamins. If you’re unsure of what to try, start with natural, plant-derived extracts. These match your skin composition and would prevent you from needing chemical cures. They tend to be kinder to your skin and restore its natural state, eliminating the need for you to experiment with and change products often.
Take, for instance, the Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum which contains algae oil and is water-based for a gentle treatment. It improves the skin’s smoothness and firmness without creating the damage usually done by chemicals. For the next day’s makeup, prep your skin with Jane Iredale Beauty Prep Toner to make your makeup last longer. Take Jane Iredale’s Hydration Spray for a quick, organic refresher when you’re out and about.
At night, incorporate the L’Occitane Peony Perfecting Toner into your regimen. Made with peony extracts, it gently tones your face leaving the skin radiant with a smoother and more velvety appearance. Choose a nourishing cream like Neal's Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Concentrate to lock in moisture with frankincense and myrrh, then keep wrinkles at bay with the Sisleya L'integral Anti-Age that’s created with plant-based ingredients like ursolic acid, phytostimulines, shiitake, and essential oils.
