NATURAL BEAUTY: THE LOLITA DROPS + MY LOVE FOR VITAMIN C
I've written here before about Pura and today I had to share my absolutely favorite oil and product in the world. I've never come across an oil so p u r e yet so effective. I'm not super crazy into anti-aging, YET, just joking, I will do my part in terms of nutrition and skincare, but believe that aging is a gift! We are lucky if we get to live a long, healthy and vibrant life and aging is merely a biological change in ones cells, never the mind and soul - I believe those to be ageless. All of this to say, a little bit of anti-aging never hurts, and I am at a stage where I'm looking and using products that regenerate skin cells, boost collagen and hydrate like crazy, because dry skin ages MUCH faster than someone with a oiler complexion. Therefore if you have dryer skin, you must hydrate from the inside out like crazy. Seriously. If you suffer from dry skin it's very important to use oils, heavier / natural moisturizers both day and night, with a hydrating spray throughout the day.
Where this oil comes in, is that it not only hydrates my skin beautifully with sweet almond oil and calming rose geranium, but it also helps fight spots, fine lines and redness with lavender and ascorbic acid, which is ultimately Vitamin C. First of all there is only four powerful, yet perfectly hydrating ingredients, second of all the Vitamin C in this oil takes it to another level. When you speak about anti-aging and boosting collagen Vit. C my friends, is your BEST friend.
HOW IT WORKS: It provides potent antioxidant protection, shielding skin from damaging free radicals— which are essentially the enemy when it comes to not only your skin, but your entire well being. Free radicals further promote premature aging. The most abundant forms of free-radical damage are environmental factors we can’t escape — think sun damage (wear a hat + sunscreen), pollution (take epsom salt baths and drink green juice) and oxygen —that assault skin on a daily basis, but that’s where topical vitamin C can help you!
See what C can do:
*Reduce the appearance of brown spots and other types of sun damage *Helps boost healthy collagen production (hello, firmer skin!) *Reduce inflammation and irritation, both of which cause a cascade of damage *Fade post-breakout red marks by improving skin’s natural healing response *Increase the effectiveness of your sunscreens and boosts your skins defense against UV exposure
Also to note foods high in Vitamin C coupled with Lolita is a game changer!
My favorites include: organic red bell peppers, strawberries, grapefruit, broccoli (very High in C), dark leafy greens, tomatoes and snap peas.
I love this oil so much that I've already used an entire bottle since December, and I'm on my second which I've made a large dent in. I cannot say enough about this glow inducing product, and the woman & team beyond Pura Botanicals. One of the purest, most natural and love filled, product I've ever come across. It's hand made in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada sourcing only the best, most natural and environmentally products you could ever imagine!
I LOVE PURA.
If you can get your hands on this oil, some of Lane's + Pura's other magical potions they will change your skin and life for the better.
