Protecting Day Cream light
Formulated by a functional medicine practitioner as a lighter version of our protecting day cream. During the day, our skin is exposed to UVA/UVB radiation and subjected to environmental contaminants, as well as make-up. Day creams protect the skin and create a “shield” against all these external threats. Our day cream is made with plant-derivatives that contain SPF to protect the skin from ultraviolet rays and capture free radicals, helping to shield your skin from premature ageing. Additionally, day creams include ingredients that take care of the skin and offer hydration throughout the day.
This new formula combines a blend of oils that work wonders for skin health! Many of grapeseed oil’s beauty benefits may be due to its Vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acid content. Vitamin E helps battle free radicals. Omega-6 fatty acids are crucial to skin function and appearance, they are necessary for skin barrier functioning and help to reduce inflammation. Almond oil helps your skin look smooth, soft, and free of fine lines. The omega-3 fatty acids present in almond oil help your skin retain moisture and can heal chapped and irritated skin. Apricot kernel oil has emollient properties, which helps to fight against dry, rough, scaly skin where conditions such as eczema and psoriasis occur. Its antibacterial properties help to fight off harmful bacteria and speed up the healing process of blemishes. Aloe is another addition to this new blend- perfect for summertime when you are experiencing more sun exposure and also known for acne fighting properties! The essential oils used in this new formula remain the same as our thicker day cream.
