Active Herbal Elixir
During my acne-ridden teenage years, I used a plethora of products on my oily skin that had promised to "dry my pimples and zap the zits away". Sufficed to say that none of those products really worked for me. My skin suffered a couple of years before a sudden act of desperation caused me to grab a natural body oil off my mother's vanity table and to apply that directly on my face. That was my first experience with natural oils, and I was astonished to learn that natural oils could be used on my skin to counteract the overabundant production of oil. Thus began a lifelong passion for researching natural oils so that I could learn more about my own skin and how different types of oils could address my concerns.
Over time, I found myself trying nearly almost every facial oil on the market. My adult skin has undergone quite a few changes since my youth. Skin is dynamic and always changing—my skin is now dry instead of oily, and concerns are now steered towards anti-aging and dullness. After years of research, we've created a facial oil to celebrate the zealous and progressive nature of the skin. We've formulated an elixir that is gentle enough for users of all ages and all skin types.
The Active Herbal Elixir is a lightweight facial oil that is power-packed with healthy and effective antioxidants and vitamins. A perfect product for daily use: it moisturizes and plumps skin as well as improving elasticity for all skin types. Never oily and sticky, it absorbs wonderfully into the skin to leave a soft and supple finish. Long term use will diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance radiance and hydration of the skin. Dermal tone and texture will be improved and protected from environmental damage. To maximize benefits, use this facial oil together with the Gua Sha tool to massage your skin. Your face will have improved blood circulation and a healthy glow from within.
