Our skincare moisturizers contain emollients that repair dry skin quickly. Cold-pressed seed oils and virgin coconut oils contain alpha-linolenic, linoleic, and lauric acid, which smooth, hydrate, and seal in moisture. These essential fatty acids increase the lipid fluid level in the skin while moisturizing and bonding with the skin to form a seal on the epidermis. The bond these essential fatty acids offer seals in moisture while protecting the skin from winter’s dry atmosphere and dry heat.
Our nutrient-packed, high-yielding emollient moisturizers are a rich source of amino acids and essential fatty acids, two different groupings that protect the skin from degenerating skin diseases. Because the nutrients are absorbed deeply into the skin's matrix and lipid systems which feed the skin cells to maintain healthy beauty. They do not lay on the surface of the skin to mask the dehydration and dryness that exists deep within the layers of the skin. 50% of the cream is aloe, it supports the proliferation of new skin. This does not occur with all moisturizers on the market. Our creams are made with real food, whole plants for whole people.
Our serums are designed with cold-pressed seed oils and essential oils. Anna’s Secret Skin Renewal Serum is designed specifically for normal to oily skin and acne-prone skin. It is made with Jojoba, Evening Primrose, Red Currant, Black Cumin, Olive, Red Raspberry Seed, and Pumpkin Seed Oils. Jojoba is an ester that mimics our own sebaceous oil. Jojoba contains a large amount of iodine which breaks up sebum's sticky matter which clogs pores, develops blackheads if not removed. Jojoba also protects the complexion from the bacteria that create acne. Anna’s Secret Renewal Serum should be worn in the evening when the body is in the detoxing phase. The serum will support the body's detox system and cleanse the pores on a deeper level.
Anna's Skin Repairing Serum is for normal to dry skin, mature and thin skin, and sun-damaged skin. It will also buffer the skin from environmental toxins and moisture evaporation. A little goes a long way and should be worn as a daytime serum when the body's cycle is in the repairing phase.
Is your Hair Harder to Manage in the Winter?
Dry air develops an imbalance in the positive and negative ions, creating more positive ions which develop free radicals on your skin, hair, and in your body. Once free radicals form in your hair the static electricity is so intense that it develops knots and causes frizzy hair. I have discovered an amazingly effective source to get rid of the static and frizz, in one step. Spray your hair and your brush with a hydrosol to relieve the problem. A fresh hydrosol is distilled water from fresh plants. It contains trace amounts of essential oils, minerals, and vitamins. Your hair absorbs all the nutrients, is bouncier, shinier, and healthier. No more static electricity and a lot fewer knots to deal with. We grow the herbs and make our own hydrosols. Check out our list of hydrosols, they are all herbal aromatics.
