May 7th, 2015

They have pampered us now it’s time to pamper them for Mother’s Day.  With that in mind NYC’s skincare guru and celebrity facialist, Joanna Vargas, recommends 3 ways to restore skin to its youthful glow as the perfect gift for mother’s day.  As a mother herself she is aware of how fatigue shows on the face and the need to take care of  dermal health as part of an overall wellness routine.  Her tightly curated namesake line of natural skincare has been coveted by business professionals and celebrities alike for the immediate age-defying results.

Treating skin to this indulgent anti-aging face care is the ultimate way to reinvigorate dermal balance and deliver visible perfection for mothers of all skin types and tones.  Cleanse and protect mom’s faces with botanical ingredients that have been known traditionally to inhibit the early signs of aging and maintain a flawless appearance whether skin is normal, oily, dry or sensitive.


A Gentle Antioxidant Cleanse for Glowing Skin

Many moms know the importance of cleaning the face daily.  What they may not know is how a Vitamin C Face Wash, with abundant antioxidants, can benefit the skin over the long haul.  The gentle removal of the day’s grime from pores accompanied with protection from roaming free radicals can bring about an optimal glow.  While the skin will be exposed to these ever-present microbes that can break down the dermis, the antioxidants in the cleanser provides a barrier to significantly reduce potential harm. In this way some of the signs of aging that may eventually appear are held at bay.

Key ingredients:  galactoarabinan found in the Larch Tree extract enhances cell turnover and brightens the skin.  Hyaluronic acid hydrates, repairs tissue and bonds the structure of the skin with increased collagen and elastin production.

Purifying Exfoliation for a Silky Complexion

One of the steps that’s often overlooked in face care regimes is exfoliation.  This process is so important for eliminating dead skin cells that can block pores and slow cell renewal.  Shedding this old layer of tissue also brings a polished look and feel that would not be possible otherwise.  With purifying Kaolin clay as the foundation of this exfoliating mask it absorbs contaminants and toxins from deep within the pores improving circulation as its massaged into the surface.

Key ingredient: Lactic acid gently breaks the bonds of dead dermal layers and to fend off germs and bacteria.

Ultra Moisture for Ageless beauty

Daily hydrating cream deters the fine lines and wrinkles that form when skin lacks adequate hydration or collagen and elastin proteins are depleted.  With moisture locked into dermal layers and protein boosting nutrients achieving ageless radiance is within easy reach.  Shea and cocoa butters contain just such emollient and nourishing properties and are the prime botanicals in this luxurious moisturizer.  As traditional skincare they also rapidly diminish blemishes as they fill in fine lines and wrinkles for a beautiful visage.  It also acts a sunscreen to protect against damage from sun exposure.

Bonus ingredients: Titanium dioxide is known for its high refraction properties that deter the absorption of the harmful UV rays. Zinc oxide offers advanced sun protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays.

The moms in your life will most definitely be thankful for the gift of ageless beauty they are least inclined to bestow upon themselves!
