Many of you know I spend a lot of time outside in the summer. I kayak, camp, and hike nearly every week. That means a lot of time in the sun and water. I also noticed that doing all that doesn't allow me to take care of my skin the way I normally would at home. While heading into the home stretch of the season I notice that my skin is a bit fried and can use some TLC. It just does not recover like it used to since I am a woman "of a certain age". In other words, I need a serious moisturizer.
Replenish Plus makes a very good skin moisturizer, and it's serious stuff. Skin2Touch High Intensity Moisturizer provides both care and repair properties to damaged or aging skin. It's loaded with ingredients I love and is natural, vegan and organic. It also contains one of the most important skin care ingredients; sunscreen.
Jojoba and Grapeseed oils, two of my favorite for moisturizing and skin cell regeneration, are incorporated into the moisturizer. It also contains antibacterial properties with the inclusion of Lemon and Lavender essential oils. Anti-bacterial properties are especially helpful if you, like me, have breakouts or acne issues. Vitamins A, C, and E are present to nourish the surface of the skin. Omegas 3, 6, and 9 are skin essentials that Replenish Plus included to protect the skin's lipid barrier and repair the barrier function of the skin. All of these ingredients are perfect for mature skin because they repair and protect. They also help in slowing the formation of new wrinkles and they smooth the skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles that are already there.
This moisturizer can be used all over the face and body. My hands show my age even more than my face, so the anti-aging properties of the cream can help when applied to the hands as well. I have to remind myself that this is a concentrated formula, so only a small amount is needed to soothe the skin. I find it's best to apply Skin2Touch High Intensity Moisturizer right after a shower and first thing in the morning.
Replenish Plus uses only a cold process to make their products. This means that high temperatures have not destroyed any of the properties the ingredients contain. It also means that the product is fresh and pure while remaining concentrated and potent. In addition, the products remain pure and potent because they never dilute anything they produce with water.
Now that I have found the right all purpose moisturizer for my face, hands and body, I'll be ready to head into winter with my repaired and radiant skin after abusing it all summer long.
