Hello Summer! Summer is will be here before you know it. Internal you need to keep hydrated by drinking lots of water, when you are dehydrated, it will show on your skin for sure! Your skin is the largest organ on the body, & we need to protect it, nourish it & keep it hydrated. For a summer masque The Strawberry Rhubarb Masque by Eminence Organics Skin Care is quite scrumptious, indeed I must say! This masque is loaded with Vitamin C (which is a show-off) we all have read & heard how amazing Vitamin C is, it truly clear the complex, it helps prevent free-radicals. Strawberries: is a natural exfoliator for skin, it contains salicylic acid that gently exfoliates & removes impurities to brighten skin & shrink pores. Rhubarb: healing & a good source of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). Hyaluronic Acid: (from marshmallow plant extract) deeply hydrates the skin, this amazing ingredient smoothes & plumps skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. We start to lose Hyaluronic Acid in our mid 20’s, which we need to keep the plumpness in our skin.
I love sleeping with this masque on (say whaaat- sleep with a masque on!). Yup, this creamy masque is best used with you sleep with it on, it can replace your night moisturizer a few times a week. So, if you need some hydration this summer, The Strawberry Rhubarb Masque is a great add-on to your daily regimen.
