A healthy glow can easily mislead someone trying to guess your age.
The one piece of advice I tell my twenty-plus year old daughter is that it is never too early to start taking care of your skin. Aging is inevitable, but we can have some control over how we deal with its effects.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize, however be aware that whatever is in that cream gets absorbed into your system. Life's stresses inhibit the effectiveness of our lymphatic systems and if we cannot eliminate toxins efficiently they accumulate and we develop a dull lack-luster appearance.
The key to a youthful skin is cellular regeneration. Wrinkle wrath cream starts with the nutritional value of hazelnut and almond oils. Rich in protein they are good for moisturizing and balancing all skin types. Processed using cold pressed extraction rather than chemical solvents these nut oils won't add to the overload our skin faces daily.
Those with nut allergies need to be aware these base oils use almonds and hazelnuts. If you have a nut allergy, let me know and we'll use a nut free blend such as apricot, sunflower and/or grapeseed oils.
Coconut oil is added for its cool, creamy texture as well as its help to stiffen the cream. Its unique molecular structure allows it to easily absorb into your skin while not leaving behind a greasy film. The natural antioxidants found in coconut oil fight against free-radicals which damage connective tissue and cause the skin to lose elasticity and wrinkles
For those who prefer a substitution for coconut oil, we use what is called African Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturizing, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating. Shea Butter easily penetrates the skin allowing the skin to breathe without clogging the pores. The addition of shea butter offers a little fluff to the final cream .
Essential oils used are known for their anti-aging qualities. Valuable skin tonics, frankincense, myrrh, clary sage, rosemary and geranium are also wonderful for calming the psyche and lifting the spirits. Geranium, patchouli, rosewood and carrot balance the production of sebum in the sebaceous glands of the skin keeping it supple and restoring elasticity. Hormonal like properties in fennel encourage detoxification of wastes. Promoting the production of new cells, all of these oils rejuvenate and enlivens pale blotchy skin.
A positive mental attitude along with healthy living results in feeling and looking younger. Give your skin the good nutrition it needs by way of a healthy diet along with plenty of exercise for good circulation. Though a tan is beautiful, the UVA rays penetrate deeply and cause wrinkles. Smoking denies your cells much needed oxygen, which eventually ages the skin beyond your years.
Moisturize as needed onto clean skin. Due to various skin types, you may only need a tiny bit at a time or you may only need a moisturizer as a night cream.
To minimize the risk of contamination make sure you have clean fingers before dipping into the cream or use some other form of tool for dipping.
