One Step to Younger Looking Skin

Free radicals (oxidants), rogue molecules that form when your skin is exposed to sunlight, are the root cause of sun damage and skin aging. The process of skin aging is similar to what happens when the inside of an apple is exposed to open air–it begins to oxidize or age. Applying a combination of 100% natural plant based antioxidants to your skin on a daily basis,via a sunscreen or moisturizer, will boost your ability to counteract the build up of free radicals, and thus, help your skin remain more youthful.

What you want to ensure is that the antioxidants in your lotion or sunscreen are in fact “100% natural,” because synthetic antioxidants are ineffective against free radicals. Natural Mixed Vitamin E (d-Tochopherol), Green Tea Extract (Camellia Senensis), and Bio-Melanin (Date Fruit Extract) are examples of 100% natural antioxidants.

Two Simple Skincare Steps for Sensitive Skin

1.Mineral based makeup is a MUST for sensitive skin. Because it is free of fragrances and dyes, it is less irritating to skin. Plus, you apply it with a brush, so you won’t tug at your sensitive skin.

2. Use of fragrance-free moisturizer formulated for sensitive skin. Apply it right after you get out of the shower to lock in moisture, or start with a moisturizing spritz!
