If cold weather seems to zap your skin of moisture, you’re not alone.
As the weather begins to turn cool and dry, many of us look for more hydration for our skin. Aging skin, especially on our hands and face begins to change due to a lack of collagen and elastin. Wrinkles begin to show as collagen dissipates. Dry, autumn air can make the problem worse.
5 Dry Skin Symptoms~
The skin on your face and body feels 'tight' after cleansing
Generally, your skin has a rough texture
The skin around your lips or on your face is flaking or scaly
Fine lines or cracks are developing
You experience dryness that’s painful, itchy, or scaly
A great moisturizer or serum can help dramatically with hydration and help soften the effects of aging skin.
Some beneficial ingredients include:
Cocoa Butter forms a protective layer on the skin, preventing moisture from escaping, stopping the skin from drying out.
Ucuuba Butter is rich in essential fatty acids that can help to replenish and moisturize dry or maturing skin, along with eczema.
Olive Squalane which is great for dry and irritated skin as it has been shown to help calm redness and inflammation.
Mango Butter is an excellent skin softener and has been reported to lessen wrinkles and signs of aging.
Shea Butter is a fantastic anti-aging ingredient and a great treatment option for those with dry skin or eczema.
The following products are rich in butters and botanicals. Each preserve moisture, offering hydration to parched skin.
Night Recovery Pressed Serum: (super unique!) A graceful anti-ager, this pressed serum combines the exquisite ingredients Ucuuba, Peach Kernel, Perilla and Kiwi. Lupin seed serves as a multi-benefit firming active by stimulating collagen in our skin. This plant botanical has remarkable anti-inflammatory abilities and effectively increases skin elasticity while increasing hydration. I recommend using this in the evening after cleansing.

This is a very luxurious face balm containing Olive Squalane. It glides on smooth, leaving your face feeling rejuvenated and full of life.
