Corrective Face Serum | Healthy Illuminated Complexion
As we age, wrinkles start looking deeper as our skin's natural oils decrease; the moisture barrier breaks down and the skin dries out. Most creams contain a little oil, but not enough to make a big difference in water loss. Because oils are lipophilic (fat-liking) they pass though the lipid layer of the skin much faster, preventing water loss which allows them to plump the skin and moisturize more effectively.

When you look at younger skin you are seeing skin at its healthiest, where the skin cells are held together by an abundance of oil. As we age, we produce less of these important naturally occurring oils that give our skin a healthy glow. Adding oils back in topically, can give your skin a healthy lipid barrier, allowing it to retain more moisture and prevents dehydration. When face oils are applied to the skin, they are absorbed directly into the top layers of the epidermis and many times one can see immediate results from the first application.

From the kernels of the endemic Argan tree, that is valued for its nutritive and numerous medicinal properties. Grown in North Africa and mainly in Morocco, the Argan tree grows wild in semi-desert soil, and is extremely well adapted to drought. Argan Oil is considered to be one of the rarest oils in the world due the small and very specific growing area and is under protection of UNESCO. One of the main reasons that argan oil is so healing, is that it is rich with vitamin A and vitamin E. However, argan oil is also packed with anti-oxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Research shows that when applied to skin, it eases inflammation while moisturizing the skin.
Frankincense originates from a small scraggly but hardy tree indigenous to the Middle East, which is small with abundant pinnacle leaves and white or pale pink flowers. The resin begins as a fragrant sticky milky-white liquid that flows from the trunk of the tree when cut. The dried tears are collected, and the resin is then distilled, producing the precious oil. It is used as incense, and has been traded for 5,000 years. Widely used in ancient Egypt, it was one of the ingredients used in the holy oil described in the Talmud. Frankincense was brought back to Europe by Frankish Crusaders (Frank-incense), and the oil is still highly prized today in the perfumery industry and has anti-inflammatory characteristics
Though classified as a shrub, Myrrh can grow up to 30 feet in height. The trunk exudes a natural oleo resin that hardens into what is classified as reddish brown 'tears'. Local collectors make incisions into the trees in order to increase the yield. Called mo yao in China, it has been used since at least 600 BC it has been used for centuries as an ingredient in incense, perfume and improving appearance of skin.
