Nap in the Meadow Face Serum
Ultra-lightweight aloe-based serum that hydrates and improves the skin appearance.
Nap in the Meadow Face Serum is an ultra-lightweight aloe-based serum that looks spearmint-y and smells of a spring meadow to some, and of just-picked strawberries to others. It is a dew-consistency almost-liquid that is close to oil-free, but effectively hydrates and improves the appearance of all types of skin. And it makes your toner or mist optional. We recommend using this serum as the first moisturizing step, before a facial oil or oil-based serum.
Benefits:For all skin types, especially dry and dehydrated, mature, acne, combination, oily, and skin with eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. If you have allergies or skin sensitivities but are able to tolerate products with nonirritant essential oils as active ingredients. You should be able to tolerate this product well. This is a an excellent hydrating and redness-reducing product.
Nap in the Meadow Face Serum delivers a broad range of benefits in a single product. Deep hydration, strong anti-inflammatory action, anti-oxidants, anti-aging benefits, refreshing effects, and even some acne reducing, tissue repairing, and sunburn and sun damage repair.
Yarrow oil: This deep blue oil from Bulgaria is distilled from white yarrow flowers and is one of the top anti-inflammatory essential oils. Along with German blue chamomile and helichrysum. Yarrow oil is nondrying, yet it helps heal acne and balance excessively oily skin. And it soothes inflammatory skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema.
German blue chamomile oil: German chamomile flowers are white and yellow but their distilled oil is a dark blue. It is a top ingredient for decreasing skin inflammation (apparent as unhealthy redness) and pain (extremely helpful with painful acne breakouts).
Helichrysum (Italian everlasting): Helichrysum oils are very expensive and are the number-one essential oils for revitalizing skin tissue. In an utterly soothing manner (helichrysum is so mild, it can be used un-diluted on burns). It is extremely beneficial for wrinkles, sagging of the skin, other signs of skin aging, scar healing, and sunburn.
Two different lavender species from France: Lavender oil is one of the top active skin care ingredients, and it is used here to revitalize skin and address persistent dryness more than for the fragrance. For this formula, wild lavender from France, that is hand-gathered and distilled by an artisan distiller. Its fragrance is very delicate and complex. The second lavender is also from France and it contributes a sweeter and more floral aroma, without any sharpness.
Rose geranium and geranium bourbon: Geranium is one of the top essential oils for dry and mature skin.
Elderberry extract: An incredible dose of antioxidants to delay skin aging and reverse UV damage.
Galbanum: This essential oil is made from galbanum resin, an ancient wound-healing agent for slow-to-heal skin conditions and also used as an anti-inflammatory agent. Included here to aid skin tissue repair and scar healing and prevention.
