Product Feature: Emerald Serum
As a woman who is experiencing menopause I noticed a change in my skin that I did not like. The density of my skin started to decline rapidly I knew I had to add nourishing oils to my skin to plump up my skin as much as possible naturally. I went on a quest to find out which oils worked best for menopausal and mature skin. I read everything I could find online, in my botanical library and at libraries around our city. I checked open source science publications to see which oils had natural synergies and could further benefit the skin’s absorption. It was enlightening and I want to share that with you today.
What are the effects of the skin during Menopause?
The most visible effect is the reduction of estrogen in the body, which in turn contributes to reduced collagen production. When estrogen is depleted you will notice the skin loses density and structure. This happened quickly to me, my skin is fine textured and was never dense or thick so the effects were visible to me almost immediately entering menopause. I was not a happy camper!
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association https://www.aad.org "Menopause, which officially begins one year after your last period, can bring with it some noticeable changes to your skin and hair. As hormone levels plummet, your skin can become dry, slack, and thin. You may notice more hair on your face and less on your scalp."With the right care, you can lessen these effects."
The ingredients in this serum counteract menopausal skin side effects. I developed it by testing on myself over a 14 month period. I test all of our formulas on me first before it goes to anyone else. If I like it and think we have a new effective formula, it gets a high 5 and is scheduled for a test production.
Specific oils assist in the plumping the skin’s epidermis, penetrates the dermal layer and is absorbed into the subcutaneous fatty layer. The oils are absorbed in between the skin’s cellular walls bathing each cell in nourishing oils. this prevents moisture loss and stimulates new cell formation to repair damaged skin and even out skin tone.
Applying serum at night is key when you have dry, dehydrated, dull skin, its even more important when you are experiencing menopause. When you sleep your body goes into repair mode, using Emerald Serum at night increases its effectiveness. I apply mine after misting with Land And Sea Healing Mist and follow it with our Labrador Tea Night Cream which I press into the skin, it is a natural alternative to La Mer and is magical in its effects. My next product feature is going to be explaining the Labrador Tea Night Cream in detail.
Choosing products for your daily health and beauty rituals is such a personal thing. I love the aroma of the serum as I massage it into my skin. This year we will be harvesting our own rosehips and making our own rosehip oil! That is going to be exciting. I have added all the specs on Emerald Serum below so you can peruse everything in one place. She is a powerful soldier in your skincare regimen.
