Benefits The ingredients

  • Ground Oats are full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory properties. Oats have two major components: avenanthramides and lipids. Avenanthramides are a group of phenolic antioxidants that are anti-inflammatory. Topically can help calm itchiness and irritation. Lipids help moisturize and maintain your skin barrier, which prevents dryness and conditions such as atopic dermatitis or eczema.
  • Ground Almonds works as a gentle exfoliator, improving skin tone and color.  Almonds are also high in Vitamin E; which helps with wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Ground/powder Rosehips are high in essential fatty acids.  It gives a boost in moisturizing dry, weathered skin.  The fatty acids act as excellent moisturizers for the skin, while also helping to form and keep the walls of skin cells strong.
  • Ground/powder Lavender is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, toning.  Its healing properties work to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, and oily skin. Helps kill bacteria and prevents acne breakouts.
  • French Green Clay is a natural exfoliant that gently removes dead skin cells from the skin’s outer surface, the epidermis. This helps to naturally exfoliate the dry skin layer and increase circulation.

It is really your personal preference and your daily routine. If you find your skin looks dull in the morning, exfoliating before you start your day may be beneficial.  However,  exfoliating at night can help remove any lingering makeup or other debris.

Avoid exfoliating if you have cuts or open sores on your skin.

  • Long-term exfoliating can increase collagen production. Collegan is the ability to give skin a healthy glow. Collagen does this by providing elasticity to the skin, which helps it to appear plump and youthful.
  •  Stimulation of lymphatic drainage for internal cleansing and stimulation of oxygen-rich blood to feed and nourish the skin’s surface. This is a form of skin detoxification, working to remove toxins and other unhealthy debris. It boosts cellular health to reveal glowy, radiant skin.
