Intense hydration—check. Anti-aging and skin healing properties—check. This past winter was really hard on my skin and I needed a hydration boost big time. Prickly Pear Hydration Crème to the rescue.
Some of my favorite ingredients are: organic Prickly Pear (cactus) seed oil, organic Illipe butter, organic Babassu oil, organic Pomegranate seed oil, Apple stem cells and Citrus stem cells, and Tetrapeptide 21.
Prickly Pear Seed oil works to rejuvenate the skin, help fade skin imperfections, and even dark under eye circles. Its one of the best sources of vitamin E, its soothing, moisturizing, a skin protective agent, and an incredible natural antioxidant. It fights free radicals, soothes inflammation, maintains skin firmness and suppleness; eases wrinkles and fine lines; reduce sun damage and UV induced skin aging. It also contains Vitamin K which promotes the skin’s healing process, can even out skin tone, brighten under eye circles, and even prevent broken capillaries. Illipe nut butter contains oleic, palmitic, stearic, and linoleic fatty acids, as well as vitamins A and E. It reinforces the skin’s natural protective barrier; protects the skin against the elements, helps to retain moisture, and preventing the skin from drying out. Good for eczema or dermatitis. Tetrapeptide-21 stimulates skin growth and repair. When collagen breaks down, it forms specific Tetrapeptides that signal to your skin that it was damaged and needs to make new collagen. By applying Tetrapeptides topically, your skin believes it has lost collagen recently and needs to make more. It activates collagen production and therefore stimulates dermal filling, repair and renewal mechanisms of the skin. Malus Domestica (Apple Stem Cell Extract) is a based on the stem cells of a rare Swiss apple well-known for its age delaying and anti-wrinkle effects. Citrus stem cells help skin recover the elasticity it had 12 years ago, with a softer and more velvety complexion, plus a younger appearance. Works well with OMG Hydrating Mist. 1oz
