This particular change in the seasons wreaks havoc on my skin! With turning 26 soon, I’m noticing the very first signs of aging. Eminence’s Bamboo Firming Fluid is a life saver for my dry, flaky pre-winter skin; eliminating fine lines via the strengthening and boosting of collagen and elastin. The chicory root and tara tree complex mimics the effects of conventional retinol without the nasty side effects. And an all-time favourite ingredient packed in there too is coconut oil! My skin feels softer, looks fresher, and I’m helping to combat those first signs of aging before they get out of control. If I’m in a hurry after my AM cleansing, I throw on some of the fluid and go to town with my SPF mineral wand, then I’m out the door!
With the sun and time not on my side, I had the bright idea to mix Eminence Organics’ Bright Skin Booster Serum with a bit of the Bright Skin Masque to help target a nasty hyper pigmentation spot on my upper lip which was giving me a very unflattering 5 o’clock shadow. Both of these products contain licorice root which is a natural lightening agent, and Eminence’s signature “Natural Hydroquinone Alternative Complex,” which is a combination of African potato and tara tree. These two botanicals combined provide my skin with rich antioxidants, collagen boosting properties, and more natural lightening power to fade freckles, age spots and hyper-pigmentation. To make my special mustache masque, I start by adding a few drops of the Bright Skin Serum and massage it gently all over my upper lip. Next, I add a light layer of the Bright Skin Masque over top (if my husband is working late, I will actually sleep with it on – the longer it can stay on, the better!) After my cleansing routine in the morning, and before my moisturizer and SPF minerals, I add a bit of the bright skin serum to my upper lip again. This helps prevent further damage throughout the day. This light weight serum and masque work great for anyone with uneven skin tone, especially for women suffering from post “pregnancy mask” or individuals who want to target age spots.
With the colder weather approaching, my skin takes a serious hit! Cooler weather means drier skin for me; but I find since having my daughter I’ve experienced more breakouts due to hormonal changes. The balancing masque duo is perfect for those like me who need hydration but also need to deal with those pesky blemishes. The Charcoal T-Zone Purifier contains kaolin clay and charcoal which draw out dirt, oil and bacteria that block pores. A botanical active extracted from buchu leaves helps decrease oil production, minimizing the appearance of pores and preventing future breakouts. After hitting the big 3-0, I’ve noticed more wrinkles and fine lines setting in. The Pomelo Cheek Treatment contains antioxidants and vitamins from fresh pomelo juice and bamboo leaf extract which help smooth these out. An added bonus is the ultra moisturizing shea butter! This masque duo is great for keeping skin clear, hydrated, and balanced.
