Your beauty is akin to a wildflower: strong yet delicate, soft, fragrant, and perfectly designed by nature in all its unique glory. So naturally, using the beautifying essences of real wildflowers to nourish your beauty blue print and strengthen your skin’s integrity should be at the top of your anti aging skincare list. One of the most nourishing of wildflowers is Evening Primrose. Containing a most valuable essential fatty acid, and with a long history of use in North America, this beauty-giving bud is a must for your anti aging skincare needs.
The oil of Evening Primrose is pressed from the little yellow flower’s seeds, and this night blooming beauty has been used medicinally in Europe since the 17th century, and by the Native Americans for sore throats, bruises and hemorrhoids. It has a strong anti-inflammatory affect on the skin, which is imperative for preventing and correcting the signs of premature aging. It is also a great source of antioxidants that help to neutralize free radicals that are notorious for damaging skin and the precious collagen beneath it.
Evening Primrose oil contains an essential fatty acid known as GLA, or gamma linoleic acid, and this essential fatty acid is a gem when it comes to maintaining healthy skin cell function. You see, when the skin is deficient in GLA, it becomes dry, scaly, dehydrated and unable to adequately heal itself. The role of GLA is to protect and optimize healthy skin cell function by nourishing their membranes, which in turn enhances the skin’s barrier function. Topical application of GLA helps the skin to retain moisture, heal itself, and stay supple and smooth.
If you are someone who suffers from an irritating skin disorder such as Eczema, Evening Primrose oil is a great oil to use because it helps the skin to regain its healthy function, which in turn reduces, and even potentially eliminates, the irritating, itchy, scaly and dry symptoms of skin disorders that result from under nourished skin cells.
Evening Primrose oil is light, nourishing, has an easy glide and can even help those who suffer from acne. It’s a true anti aging skincare gem, and that’s why we love it so much. Beauty is already contained within you, and by using anti aging skincare ingredients like Evening Primrose oil, you nourish and bring forth your intrinsic beauty blue print, one application at a time.
