Skin Therapy

It’s winter. Yes even here in Arizona. It’s cold and it’s dry. And what does that mean? That our skin is being punished. Drying out. Tightness. You name it. Or for those slope bunnies you are experiencing the harsh sun radiating off the beautiful snow. It’s pretty much a lose, lose situation.

And I’m here to say that there are steps to take to keep your skin beautiful during the harsh months (summer and winter). From eating the right food for your face (skin) to drinking lots and lots of water. And of course never forget the SPF. But what else can you do?

Well let me introduce you to a product that can help you.

Allu Ultimate Skin Therapy

This little gem came to me and the first thing I thought (and tweeted) when I saw it – “it looks magical”. Now how can anything beauty related be magical right?! And no it’s not magic in a beautiful jar. But it’s pretty fantastic and after trying it for the past few weeks I am sure to tell everyone that they need to try it too.

With ingredients that we should all know by now are amazing for our skin:

  • Bitter Almonds contain mandelic acid, an alpha-hydroxy-acid that rejuvenates skin, combats hyper-pigmentation, improves skin elasticity, and prevents breakouts. The acid in Bitter Almonds’ molecular structure is larger than that of other alpha-hydroxy-acids. As such, it is more slowly absorbed into the skin, helping make Allu’s effects last longer with minimal irritation.
  • Neroli, an essential oil extracted from fragrant blossoms of the bitter orange tree, has an enchanting history. Cleopatra soaked her sails in Neroli to assist in her (successful!) seduction of her Roman conquerors. Neroli is much more than a scintillating flavor, however – modern science has shown that Neroli can improve skin elasticity, stimulate new cell growth, relax wrinkles and soften scars.
  • Beta-Arbutin is a skin brightener, inhibiting melanin production by limiting tyrosinase. It reduces areas of hyperpigmenation, post blemish scars, fades freckles, and evens out skin tone. This results in brighter skin, more uniform in tone.
  • Green Tea is included as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that protects against free radical damage. This helps sooth irritated skin, reduce redness, and heal dry cracked skin.
  • Grape Seed Extract contains powerful antioxidants to protect collagen and elastin, resulting in noticeably firmer skin.
  • Vitamins A, C and E: Vitamin A: increases skin cell regeneration and turnover, and helps stimulate collagen production. This helps your body keep its skin looking smooth and tight naturally, and can also lighten discoloration of the skin. Vitamin C: prevents oxidative changes to skin cells that occur following sun exposure. Vitamin C also assists Allu’s rejuvenation effects, making for happier, healthier skin. Vitamin E: provides hydration and helps Allu help your skin attract moisture out of the air. Vitamin E also helps restore elasticity, radiance and beauty.
  • Lanolin is known as the World’s greatest emollient. As such, it helps the skin maintain suppleness and elasticity, contributing to Allu’s lasting effects.
  • Collagen is a protein that gives structure to skin, contributes to elasticity, and rounds out wrinkles. As we age, the skin’s natural collagen diminishes. Without correction, this inevitably contributes to the development of wrinkles and a reduction in the skin’s elasticity. Collagen increases hydration, improves skin elasticity, and decreases the extent and depth of wrinkles.
  • Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide) is a patented peptide complex that modulates the excessive stimulation of facial muscles, relaxing facial tension and also reducing the depth of wrinkles. It’s “like Botox without the hassle.”
  • White Lotus grew in ponds and marshes throughout ancient Egypt. Popular for its moisturizing and replenishing, the White Lotus was cultivated for its natural beauty and healing powers. Our White Lotus draws its nutrients from the rich, black mud from where it grows, helping your skin pull water out of the air to refresh the skin.

How can you not be just a bit curious to my real thoughts? Well first off I’ve been having some lovely (sarcasm is inserted here) skin problems since winter hit. I’ve been dry, eczema flaring and my breakouts have been a bit worse for wear. The ingredients in this product have helped enormously calm these problems. From fading the redness of my breakouts, soothing the pain and discomfort due to dryness and giving my skin that even feel. Love. Love. Love. And one of the best parts of this entire thing was when I read that I could use this as a makeup primer too. You betcha I was sold and did so.

But I want you to head over to Allu Skincare and the Allu Skincare blog to learn more for yourself and to check them out. And get excited because I get to give one away to you too!
