For a lot of years, I could get away with any old, grocery store moisturizer and some soap. Those were days when hypo-allergenic skincare really wasn't on my priority list. My 20-something skin could go out drinking, sleep in my makeup, and still wake up looking great.
As I crept closer to 30, something changed. The glow was duller. The lines around my eyes and mouth more pronounced. Beauty mags suggest my collagen-rich years are waning. Perish the thought!
Using the Antioxidant Daily Serum, the Balancing Toner, the Eye Serum, and the Exfoliating MicroGrains, my dewy skin is coming back. The MicroGrains help slough off the dull, dead skin on my face while strengthening the skin cells (behold, the power of oats!). The serums both contain hefty proportions of avocado oil.
Avocado oil has outstanding regenerative properties as it penetrates the skin more deeply than other oils providing superior nutrients within the skin. It's filled with vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E, Pathothenic acid, amino acids and other fatty acids. And... Avocado oil increases collagen production upping skin strength and elasticity. (Cue the trumpet fanfare!)
I really do love these products. They're bringing back my youth. Try them for yourself. You'll see results, I promise.

While you may be cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, daily. If you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. It is very important to exfoliate your face and body all year round. But after the winter, sloughing away all that dead skin seems even more necessary.
For sure you need to be wearing a daily moisturizer with a minimum of an SPF 15. You also need to look for sunscreens that are labeled Broad Spectrum because this means they have passed specific laboratory testing that shows they protect against both UVA and UVB rays. If you plan to be in direct sun for more than a few hours, please reapply your sunscreen. Also, if you are planning on swimming or sweating heavily opt for a Water-Proof formula as well. It's best to avoid chemical sunscreens altogether because let's face it; we don't want the chemicals we put on our skin to end up in our blood stream. Also, because we don't yet know the impact that nanoparticles will have on our health, it's best to use mineral sunscreens that specifically use non-nano minerals.
