Why your skin needs you to SLEEP.

“Beauty Sleep” isn’t just used as a marketing term!!

Having a regular sleeping pattern is the best way to make a noticeable difference to your skin.  When you fall into a REM Sleep (3rd and 4th stages of sleep) your skin goes into repair mode and produces cells and hormones that help boost collagen production.

Sleep increases the sleep hormone melatonin.  Getting a restorative nights sleep can help accelerate the growth of fibroblasts cells, which in turn produce new collagen and elastin. Melatonin also protects skin by acting as a powerful antioxidant to fight off free radical such as damaging UV rays and pollutants.

Also while your sleeping, the production of the stress hormone cortisol is reduced. Cortisol can cause many skin issues, from thinning skin, discoloration, dryness, acne as well as redness. We all know that when we are stressed out to the max  it really affects appearance of our skin.

Ingredient Spotlight: Mandelic Acid

Mandelic Acid is a large molecular weight alpha hydroxy acid(AHA) with antibacterial properties and is derived from bitter almonds.

Mandelic acid  works by accelerating cellular turnover, the ridding of dead skin cells, and increasing collagen production  Removing dead skin cells on the surface of the skin will aid in strengthening of the collagen within our skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture.

Who doesn’t want healthier, firmer and more glowing skin?

Ingredient Spot Light MARBLE BERRY

INGREDIENT SPOTLIGHT | Marble Berry

Marble berry extract is derived from the fruit of a unique plant the supplier discovered in the Tanzanian bush. For the first time in the plant world, the supplier says, the fruit of the marble berry plant has been observed reflecting color using a similar method to that of a peacock’s feather or a butterfly’s wing. As a result, it produces a more intense color than any previously described biological material.

It also contains respectable levels of polyphenols – exhibiting exceptional antioxidant activity at very low use levels.
A photo of the ‘polarized light’ effect, as it reflects off a marble berry, is shown. Our lab says that the light reflected is circularly polarized to the left or the right, which is the characteristic of a chiral structure. Plus – the color of the fruit remains exceptionally brilliant for years after being picked.

After the team obtained samples of the raw material, and shipped it to the U.S. to extract and study, they determined that this unique, one-of-a-kind plant displays the most brilliant coloration in the known world.
