3 Tools to Slow Down Aging

Aging is a part of life and our objective is to do it as gracefully and as naturally as possible. Luckily, Nature has provided us with an abundance of skin healing plants and herbs to help us do just that.
 
Below are our top 3 formulations that allow us to age both gracefully and naturally.
This product is both a cleanser AND a moisturizer. It effectively draws out excess oil, dirt, and makeup from skin without drying it out. As we age holding onto moisture becomes more and more difficult which means we have to be especially diligent when its avoidable. Don’t let your cleanser be one of the things making skin worse. In fact, we vote your cleanser should be doing more than just cleansing; why not let it hydrate & heal too?

We think our Hemp & Green Tea Dream Cream is ideal for aging skin in huge part because it uses green tea hydrosol which penetrates quickly and deeply into the inner layers of the skin, providing hydration. Green tea hydrosol also contains powerful antioxidants like EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), which help to repair and rejuvenate collagen all while protecting the skin from DNA damage caused by free radicals.
This rich, deeply moisturizing balm packs a punch in the anti-aging department. As we age our bodies naturally become less efficient at producing collagen, and then to make matters worse, collagen production can also be negatively affected by environmental factors (i.e. stress, pollution, smoking, UV radiation) that generate free radicals. In order to slow down aging we need to assist with collagen production as well as the fight against free radicals.

 

Sacha Inchi oil is one of the special ingredients found in our Beauty Balm that assists on both fronts. Sacha Inchi oil is high in Omega 3- fatty acids. These acids help the skin retain moisture, regulate oil production, and maintain elasticity. Sach Inchi oil also contains carotenoids and plant sterols. Carotenoids are an integral part of a healthy immune system, they help us fight aging and other kinds of damage. Our skin absorbs these carotenoids and uses them to heal sun damage and protect our skin from the environment. Plant sterols are compounds that stimulate pore detoxification and strengthen the skins natural lipid barrier, protecting the skin. They leave the skin feeling soft while reducing inflammation and delaying the aging process. Phytosterols boost collagen production and help the skin retain its moisture.

 

Other reasons we view our Sacred Beauty Balm as an essential for aging skin are all the benefits we get from its Mango Butter base. This formula contains so many powerful ingredients that it can be easy to overlook the benefits of mango butter, so we wanted to quickly highlight this wonderful ingredient.

 

Mango butter is loaded with vitamins like A and E, essential fatty acids, and other natural antioxidants. High amounts of Vitamin A is wonderful because not only does it reduce damage done by free radicals, but it also speeds up cell turnover, promoting the formation of collagen!

Nothing says, “I’m tired” like dark, dull and dry circles under our eyes. When it comes to aging, the skin around our eyes tends to show signs of aging earlier than the rest of our face. That’s because the skin around our eyes is very thin, making it more susceptible to breaking down, meaning it’s more prone to laxity, developing fine lines and wrinkles, becoming looser, and even thinner. By restoring youthfulness to our eye area, we can dramatically change the overall youthfulness of our face.

 

Our Magic Eye Wand was formulated to be gentle enough for the sensitive skin around our eyes, yet powerful enough to effectively even out and brighten the area. In order to accomplish this, we’ve called on the healing powers of Rosehip Seed oil, Prickly Pear Seed oil, and Full-Spectrum Hemp oil. Rosehip Seed oil is very high in Vitamins A and C. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that reduces damage done by free radicals. It also speeds up cellular turnover, revealing fresh new skin, and promoting the formation of collagen. Vitamin C smooths and firms the skin while fading brown spots. It has been proven to increase collagen production, thus reducing the signs of aging. Rosehip oil is also packed with particularly high levels of fatty acids which are responsible for plumping out the skin which contributes to a more youthful appearance.

Prickly Pear Seed oil is chock full of “super antioxidants” called betalains, which we know fight free radicals that can damage and break down our skin. This oil is also a natural source of Vitamin K which has been linked to reduced dark under eye circles. Our Magic Eye Wand also puts to use the anti-aging properties found in the cannabis plant. We use a full-spectrum hemp oil extract rich in cannabinoids such as CBD. This newly researched compound has shown the ability to help regulate oil production, helping skin stay moisturized, as well as fighting inflammation and free radicals. Though more research has to be done, plenty of anecdotal evidence conveys the message that CBD visibly reduces the appearance of redness and dullness, as well as their fine lines and wrinkles.
