Ancient Egyptians kept their skin vibrant and flawless with Moringa Oil. This (very) old-school beauty secret is making it’s way back to skincare. According to top dermatologists, facial oils may be that missing step in your beauty routine. Ultraviolet light causes free radical damage which causes wrinkles and sunspots galore. Some facial oils are packed with antioxidants, which protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which damage skin cells. Because oils are lipophilic, they can penetrate deep into the skin, trapping water and other moisturizing goodness in, while keeping toxins out. Some oils also help to fortify and strengthen our own natural skin barrier. This is especially important for people living in big cities who need extra protection against pollutants and smog, a known source of unwanted wrinkles. Oils zip through the top of skin at lightening quick speed, quickly settling comfortably into the areas that need hydrating the most. This gives an immediate plumping effect and creates the perfect canvas for makeup. The smoother your skin, the better your whole face will look.

When you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they’ll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within.

Glycolic acid is typically used to treat sun-damaged and aging skin.
Saponin is found throughout the plant, in the rootstocks as well as in the leaves. It is proven as one of the most effective substances for stimulating natural hyaluronic acid production in the skin. The skin is better hydrated and so becomes softer and smoother. It stimulates fibroblasts, the skin cells responsible for dermal hyaluronic acid production, to boost synthesis of new Hyaluronic Acid by up to 256% in vitro. As we age, the production of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases.
MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER / GREEN TEA
Tea Powder/ Green Tea: Matcha is pulverized green tea, made from the entire leaf. It contains catechins, a type of polyphenol, making it into a powerful antioxidant.

The leaves and bark from the plant are used to make a skin-healing astringent that’s capable of naturally reducing acne, blisters, insect bites, poison ivy, inflammation and much more. The most popular use for witch hazel is on the skin, since its strong antioxidant and astringent properties are perfect for killing bacteria that lives within skin’s pores, and stopping cellular damage.The bark, twigs and leaves of the plant are used to extract active constituents called polyphenols and tannins. They’re then added to either alcohol or water to make a concentrated product called witch hazel water, Hamamelis water or distilled witch hazel extract. Tannins are responsible for making witch hazel extract a natural astringent, since they remove excess oil from skin.

In a head-to-head study by researchers at Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK, thyme killed more of the zit-causing bacteria Propionibacterium acnes than benzoyl peroxide, the active ingredient in most acne-fighting creams, did. Being a natural treatment, thyme is seen as a great alternative for benzoyl peroxide since benzoyl peroxide is associated with side effects such as irritation and burning sensation.

Its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and its ability to lighten blemishes, also help it take years off your face.
