Recently I've been doing a lot of research into the benefits of using facial oils and elixirs. In the sea of beautiful organic facial products available to us I wanted to take a moment to focus on the latest creation from Dr Alkaitis – Their Organic Ageless Facial Elixir! This is a highly active daily facial serum that contains a blend of the rarest and most potent regenerative and restorative ingredients to be found in nature.
A holistic intermingling of Dr. Alkaitis' Skin Renewing and Rejuvenating Organic Oil Complex
The Dr. Alkaitis skincare range was created by Dr. Saulius Alkaitis, a research scientist with a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry. Dr. Alkaitis not only works as a chemist but also as a molecular biologist and a pharmacognosist. He created the Dr Alkaitis holistic 'living' skincare line from edible and living ingredients like herbs, fruits, vegetables, plant oils and essential oils. All packed full with vitamins and antioxidants that your skin will love! At Nourished Life we have these products delivered to us by freight from New York every 4-6 weeks to ensure you always receive the freshest stock with the maximum level of nutrients maintained.
Some of the specific areas this Elixir targets:
Fine Lines: The unique combination of botanical oils work to smooth the skin's surface and deeply hydrate to minimise the appearance of fine lines and is suitable for use around the eyes, mouth, décollage and the back of our hands. This elixir works hard to refine the texture of the skin and slow down the signs of ageing* It does this with the inclusion ingredients like Pequi, which stimulates cell renewal and prevents signs of ageing.*
Dry skin: Dry skin may come from genetics or due to getting a little older and this is often made worse by changes in the weather. If you suffer from dry or dehydrated skin, I highly recommend you try this facial elixir because it penetrates the skin at the cellular level to deeply moisturise. It does so by using a formulation of ingredients like Ximenia and Andiroba which are known for their ability to penetrate the skin as well as their soothing and softening benefits.* Ideal for this time of year when the seasons are changing and our skin can become unbalanced!
Environmental damage: Environmental factors like pollution and overexposure to the sun can have damaging effects to the overall health and appearance of our skin. The Dr. Alkaitis Elixir helps to fight against environmental damage by using a unique combination of brightening ingredients including Gotu Kola which is super rich in Vitamins A, C & E, magnesium, silica and zinc to help decrease the appearance of scars, age spots and pigmentation.*
How to use this facial elixir
To reap the benefits of this beautiful elixir, simply add a few pumps onto your fingers and gently massage into the face, neck and décolleté. Using upwards motions. I like to use morning and night and also add to the back of my hands to help. It is suitable for all skin types!
