Happy Tuesday Gorgeous!

Many of you know that my interest in skincare stems from the best advice my mother ever gave me: “If you want beautiful skin, eat lots of fruit and vegetables.”  Based on that advice, I began creating facial masks from different types of fruit and applying them everyday.  Soon after, these powerful raw ingredients helped to heal my skin.  Ever since this life-changing experience, I have been completely devoted to harnessing the power of fruits and vegetables to make products that can heal other people’s skin.

When I was first working on formulating my own line of skincare products, after extensive research, I visited many apothecaries to find black currant seed oil.  After trying it for myself on a spot on my face where I had imperfections, I was amazed to find my skin become smoother, plumper and healthier in just 2 days.  From that point forward, I knew that one of the key ingredients I planned on utilizing in my formula would be black currant.  Years ago, when I formulated my best-selling Black Currant Serum, no one really knew about black currant seed oil.  It was difficult to find on any given ingredient list.  Today, I’m finding it pop up more and more, now that the green beauty world is thriving.  However, I still find that the amount of black currant seed oil in many products is low, underutilizing the potency of the ingredient.  After all, it is the star ingredient of my Black Currant Serum for a reason!  Though it’s so hard for me to choose just a few reasons why black currant seed oil is so amazing for your skin, here are the top three:

Vitamin C

Many people think that citrus fruits have the highest concentration of Vitamin C, but actually, black currants contain five times the Vitamin C that is in an orange.  While the necessity of Vitamin C is widely accepted when it comes to your immune system and oncoming cold symptoms, not everyone knows about what this vitamin can do for your skin.  To put it simply, it does the same thing for your skin that taking Vitamin C orally can do for your immune system: it boosts it!  Vitamin C helps to reduce wrinkles while tightening and plumping the skin.  It also brightens the skin and leaves the complexion glowing.

Essential Fatty Acids

Black currant seed oil contains large concentrations of both Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids.  These Essential Fatty Acids help to strengthen and repair the lipid barrier of the skin.  This helps your skin to retain moisture better, while also allowing the other powerful components of the oil to better penetrate your skin.  Essential Fatty Acids also help to reverse UV damage that may have come as a result of not being as careful as you should be in the sun.         

Antioxidants

Black currants have a high concentration of polyphenols, which are chemical compounds that have high levels of antioxidants, known to reduce inflammation.  The elevated amount of antioxidants also helps to neutralize free radicals, ultimately aiding in preventing cellular damage.  This helps to slow down the aging process to keep skin looking youthful and glowing.

These are just three reasons to love this amazing oil, but there are so many more!  I highly recommend trying my Black Currant Serum to see the benefits of black currant for yourself!  One drop of my serum will transform your skin.  It utilizes black currant seed oil, as well as 11 other precious, skin-nutrifying oils, enriching skin with the right balance of nutrients.  You’ll also love the hint of rose otto and sandalwood aroma.  This celebrity favorite daily serum is designed to nourish and revive skin.  Only a drop or two is needed for the whole face.  Your skin will drink it up with ease, revealing a calm, healthy and glowing complexion.​​​​​​​
