While you may be jumping up and down at the thought of finally seeing some warmer, sunshine-filled days, be sure to protect your skin it so that it can glow with health throughout summer.
Summer is a time when skin care becomes even more important, as nothing is more damaging than the UV rays of the sun.
Luckily, here at Stem Organics, we have two ingredients that will help to protect your skin during the day, and repair it at night when you get your rest. The results? Healthy, happy skin all season long!
Gotu Kola Benefits
Gotu Kola may be something you’ve never heard of before, yet after reading this you’ll soon want to become very familiar with it!
Gotu Kola is a herb found in damp areas and has simple rounded leaves. Its name varies from gotu kola, centella asiatica, pennywort to wild violet.
Rich in amino acids, beta carotene, phytochemicals and fatty acids, it’s no surprise that it’s often referred to as the “elixir of life” for stressed skins. Applied topically to the skin, Gotu Kola will help to strengthen the skin, regenerate the skin and speed up wound healing. It’s also excellent for boosting blood circulation, which stimulates collagen production for a firmer and more youthful complexion.
Olive Leaf Extract Benefits
The reason we especially love this ingredient when the sun is high in the sky, is due to its ability to reduce skin damage from UV radiation or pollution.
Powerful anti-inflammatory properties can help to soothe skin that has seen too much sun, as well as speed healing. Olive leaf extract will also ensure that your skin stays perfectly hydrated, yet never greasy.
Where To Find These Ingredients
Our Fresh Start Serum contains these two powerful ingredients, along with our key ingredients and other antioxidants to provide additional UV protection (along with your sunscreen of course!), as well as anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and heal for skin that stays healthy and protected all summer long!
