No. I’m not a wizard. I’m also not a skin care expert but apparently Dragon’s blood is a type of sap/resin from a tree. It seems that is has been used for years in skincare and has healing properties. Who knew? Hyaluronic acid is a regular ingredient in a lot of skincare products. It acts as a humectant, which is just a fancy way of saying it helps skin retain moisture. Skincare is just so so important. As I get older, I have been noticing changes in my skin. I have more dry patches and things just seem less, well, firm. I did a bit of research and these two things kept coming up as key ingredients when it came to firming, plumping and maintaining moisture. I’m in.
I’ve been using both of these the past few months and O.M.G. The difference in my skin is amazing. I have SUPER oily skin, but also used to have several dry patches around my nose and on my chin. Dry patches = gone. I am very self conscious about the wrinkles on my forehead (what can I say – I’m super animated) and I have noticed a significant improvement. I use the toner/tonic twice a day (am and pm) and the mask about once a week. Let the mask sit on your skin for about 10 minutes and rinse. You can also leave it on overnight for more intense hydration. I did that once, and woke up with a pimple. I wash it off after 10 minutes.
This pic (above) is with no makeup (obviously) and taken while binge watching House of Cards. Chevy looks as shocked as I felt while watching it. Whaaaat?! I chose this pic so you could see that skin looks pretty smooth, even without makeup. Woo! Of course it’s not going to make imperfections/wrinkles disappear, but it really does help.
If you’re looking to up your skincare game, try using products with either one of these ingredients, or both. Makeup and filters also really help. 😉
Note: always make sure to do a test patch before trying any new skin care to make sure you’re not allergic or have an adverse reaction to any of the ingredients. . .
Happy Monday!! xo
