If you wouldn't want to eat it….
Why would you want to put it on your skin? Astara Skincare is based on the philosophy that life supports life. Proper nutrition and support of your body's own healing mechanisms are the keyto healthier, younger-looking skin.
Why is Astara different? (taken from their pamphlet)
'Astara Skincare is a raw, botanical, and energized Skincare line that restores skin to its highest level of health and appearance based on technically-advanced formulations that unite the healing power of nature with the body's own regenerating abilities.
Astara Skincare was founded on the belief that the human body is a marvelous, self-healing organism if given the proper nourishment and care. We believe that optimum health and beauty can be achieved by the intake of raw, chemical-free, enzyme rich foods, which detoxify and rejuvenate the body and skin. We believe this principle also applies to skincare. In order to bring the skin's healing properties to maximum performance, each ingredient is carefully chosen to support it's intrinsic healing ability.'
I was able to sample Ahava's Age Defying Complex Serum, and it is one of my favorite beauty products ever. After I wash my face at night with my own cleanser, I apply this amazing serum to my face, neck and chest. it absorbs quickly and really makes a difference in my skin. My fine lines have disappeared ever since I have been using it. My skin has a beautiful healthy glow.
Highly bioactive, this intense serum is intensely restructuring, and mineralizing. While stimulating cell renewal, super hydrating, and encouraging oxygenation, Age Defying Serum also helps improve the skin’s elasticity by strengthening the intercellular fluid which is the “cement” of the stratum corneum. When used daily, remarkable improvement in your skin’s clarity and texture will be visible and felt within days.
I recieved samples of the above mentioned products, and the opinions are my own.
